Prospects fer a pitchers' battle be-
tween Bud Stewart, veteran right-
hander of the Orange and Blue mounl
corps, and Bill McAfee, sophomore
find of the Michigan staff, seems in-
evitable, as both men have been going
at top form in their recent games.
McAfee, who held Purdue to five hits
in the second Big Ten contest, is
credited with a one hit game against
Vanderbilt, while Stewart Jet Tulane
down with only two safeties during
the Illini training jaunt.
With one of the most formidable
squads in the Conference this season,
the Illini will make a strong bid to,
repeat their performance of last sea-
son when they vanquished the Michi-.
gan outfit, 6-1, behind faultless pitch-
ing by Stewart, while Coach Ray
Fisher's team was helpless before the
Indian twirler, his mates proceeded to
pound the veteran Don Miller for a
total of 12 safeties.
After getting a late start in the
1927 title race, however, the Wolver-
ines proceeded to atone for their earl-
ier reverses by shutting out the Illini
at Champaign, 6-0 in a game that was
featured by the hurling of Miller and
the slugging of the Maize and Blue
players, who bagged no less than 11
hits off the delivery of Stewart and
While the early season games have
been featured mainly by the brilliant

coached combination has proved itself
worthy of serious consideration both
offensively, and defensively.
SPRING GRID PRACTICE
DEVOTED TO PASSING
Although over 125 men have al-
ready responded to his call for spring
football practice, Coach Tad Wieman
expects an even larger squad by the
end of the week, as the turnout is
increasing daily. No previous ex-
perience is required, and uniforns
will be issued to all students report-
With the enlargement of the squad
after spring recess, more attention
has been paid to drilling on funda
n'enttds, blocking and tackling bing
emphasized. Efforts to develop cap-
able kickers and passers to take the
placo of those who will be lost by
graduation are being continued.
Yesterday's practice for the backs,
after opening with a short drill on
calisthenics and dodging blockers,
was devoted to all branches of the
passing game. Prospectiwe tossers
were given a chance to show their
w1rcs, and other backs and ends were
sent out to receive the passes, while
another backfield was drilled on a de-
fense for aerial attacks. The punters
Were also given a thorough workout,
withi the ends going down to get the
bickfield men returning the kicks.
Mulroney, Iowa hurler, was warm--
ly applauded by the spectators when7
he struck out Oosterbaan with the
bases loaded in the third inning and
again when he figured prominently in
a spectacular double play that staved
off a Michigan rally in the fourth
frame of yesterday's game.
Several hundr:d spectators swarm-
ed around Coach Otto Vogel ald Andy
Green, umpire, at the end of the game1
when the two engaged in a verbal
battle over a decision called in the
final inning. Orders by a single re-
presentative of the Ann Arbor po-
lice department to disperse were only.

Nebelung, Michigan center fielder,
was chased off the field by Umpire
"Four Strikes" Cleary for baiting Mul-
roney in the eighth inning. Just pre-
ivous to this Nebelung drove a two
base hit to center field. Straub ran
for Nebelung, and Slagle replaced
him in center field.
The press men were chilled to the
narrow of their bones sitting in their,
lofty perch overt the grandstand. They
are still inquiring about that danopy
the athletic association promised to
construct a week ago.
Fifteen men were used by Coach
Ray L. Fisher to achieve the one-run
victory over the Iowans. The lawk-
eyes had five less.
Stewart, Illini hurler who opposes
McAfee this afternoon, weas rushed
into the game against Bradley Thurs-
day and held the Bradley hitters to
three hits duving his three-inning stay
on the mound. Oh, Oh!
