Boilermitakers, Leading The Conference
With Three Victories, A z
Favored 't'o wil
Michigan baseball tears left at 9
o'clock last night for Lafayt'e where
they will meet Purdue in their first,
Conference game of the season. The
Purdue nine leads the Conference
with three victories and no defeats,
and because of their past record are
favored to win over the Wolverines.
The Purdue team is free of injuries!
and will be able to place their strong-I
est lineup against the Maize and Blue.
Hulswit will pitch for Purdue.
Coach Fisher has chosen the fol-
lowing men to make the trip: Captain
Wilson, Kubicek, Loos, Friedman,
Lang, Pucklewartz, Oosterbaan, Ne-
ville, Jablonowski, Miller, Walter, Ed-
gar, and Davis. Walter will pitch
against the Boilermakers if his sore
ar mresponds to treatment, otherwise
Miller will be called upon to do the
pitching. Edgar will catch.
The team will arrive from Purdue
tomorrow morning and will leave
again tomorrow night for Columbus
where they will play the Ohio State
team Monday. There is little to chose
between the Purdue and the Ohio
teams as Purdue only defeated Ohio
10 to 8, the result of a bad inning by
the Buckeye pitcher. Sloteman or
Blanchard will pitch against Mich-
The team that goes to Ohio will be
the same as that one taken to Purdue
except, the pitcher who worked today
will be left here and Ruetz will be
taken to Ohio in his place. The team
will arrive back from Ohio Tuesday
If Michigan wins over Purdue to-
day it will put that team out of first
place, and the winner of the Illinois-
Wisconsin contest will lead the Con-
ference. Should the Wolverines win
both of their week-end games it would
stamp them as one of the strongest
teams in the Conference and a likely
candidate for first place honors.
Maurice Archdeacon, outfielder, has
been returned to the Baltimore club
.after a trial with the Washington Sen-
ators. Archdeacon holds the world's
record for running around the bases.
