An Eastern Trip is Vert Probable
Recently several dates have been
changed and several new games have
been decided upon. One of the

will be played at Grand Rapids on
June 17, and the game which was to
have been played with them at Ith-
ica on May 27 will be played there

other day. If this can be done the
much talked of eastern trip for the
baseball team will be a fact.
