especially in the two baseball leagues,

Major league ball is now in full
swing, the season having opened last'
Wednesday. So far the elements have
been unkind to the ball tossers, -result-
ing in the postponement of several
Chicago and Boston are the only
American league tems that have been
able to maintain lean slates, while
no National league nine has succeeded
in winning all its games. Pittsburgh,
the leader of the older Ieague, has won
4 and lost 1. Chicago in the National
and Detroit in the American have tak-
en up their positions in the cellar, but
according to Tiger and Cub fans their
protegees will not remain there long.
Little can be judged of the relative
merits of the teams, because -of the
adverse. weather conditions under
which the men have been forced 'to
play, and also because of.the scant
number of games run off so far. The
showing of the Red Sox, the White
Sox, and the Indians in the American
league has'"been good, while the Pi-
rates and the Reds have done the best
work in the National. The -Tigers
seem unable to get started, poor pitch-
ing 'bei'ng, as usual, their chief fault.

runners failed -to report, and M.*A.
C. and the team from Kalamazoo Nor-

contenders. The two Normal sprin-
ters were fast enough to eliminate
Lashmet in the preliminary heats and
defeat Losch in the final race. Ernst,
of M. A. C., won from Butler in the
440 yard dash, the race being slow and
Johnson entered only the high
jump, winning that event at 5 feet, 8
inches. Baker won the 12 pound shot

with Cross third.
Poor weather kept the track team
from extensive work during the vaca-
tion, but the last of the week most of

Baseball, track, tennis and golf are
the sports in which leagues and tour-
neys will be held by the Intramural
Athletic department this spring, ac-
cording to Director Elmer D. Mitch-
ell, of that department.
During the first few weeks of the
season baseball will occupy ,most at-
tention,'two leagues being definitely
planned in that sport. The indoor
baseball fraternity tourney will start
first, immediately followed by the be-
ginning of the interclass outdoor race.
Fraternity Leage
Indoor baseball has been a very
popular game among the fraternities
in recent years, and this season three
indoor diamonds will be 'lad off on
south Ferry field. The tourney has
been so planned that each team will
play two or three games before being
eliminated. Entries for this league
must be in by Tuesday, April 27, and
the games will begin on the follow-
ing day.. A cup will be awarded to the
winning house.
Entries for the interclass outdoor
league will have to be in by Saturday,
-May 1. Classes should at once elect
managers so that the team can begin
to practice immediately. All managers
who are elected must report to the
Intramural office before next Monday
or that department will appoint a man
from the class to act.
Following the plan of the basketball
tournament each class may enter as
many teams as desire to enter and each
team will play two games before being
finally eliminated. However, the play-
,ers cannot interchange and can play
on only one team. Play will begin on
May 3 and the members of the win-
ning team will be awarded numerals.
Track fo petiton
As soon as the number of contest-
ants in the "'baseball leagues has re-
duced by the elimination of most of
the teams, track will engage the atten-
tion of all. As in baseball interclass
and interfraternity meets will be held.
The' class meet will take place soon
after Coach Farrell's spring meet and
winners of Varsity colors in that com-
petition will be barred from it. Nu-
merals will be awarded.
The fraternity track meet will be a
new. event and it is expected that great
interest will be shown init. A defi-
nite date has not been set' for this
event, but announcem'ent will be made
sufficiently in advance. All men who
are planning to enter either of these
meets should begin to get in condition
now in order to be tn best form for

mass athletic meet, In which at least
300 men must enter. . The events in
this meet will be run off simultane-
ously in the various Big Ten schools
and a grading on - a basis of points
will be made. The records made by
each man will be figured on the same
basis and all the points totaled and
averaged. The school which shows
the highest average wins the meet.
Tennis-and Golf
in "addition to the activities just
outlined tennis and golf will be pro-
moted. Tennis tourneys will first
be held in each class and .then the
class champions will compete for the
