Big Ten baseball teams will be es-
pecially busy this week and it is ,quite
likely that there will result a general
shakeup in the standings of all of the
schools except Michigan. Wisconsin
and Chicago, who are now in a tie
with Illinois for fourth place, will
meet at Chicago, with the Badgers as
a slight favprite due to a 7 to 3 vic-
tory over Chicago early in the sea-
son.
Purdue, who is crowding Indiana
and Iowa for the second shelf, will
be given an opportunity to topple
Indiana Tuesday when the two teams
play a. double header at Bloomington.
On Friday, Ohio State. and Minnesota,
both of whom are close to the cellar,
will meet for the first time this sea-

Marking the completion of the
spring football training season, all
candidates for the 1928 Varsity teams
will meet at 7:30 o'clock tonight in
the Union. At this time the winner of
the Chicago Alumni trophy will be
announced. Fielding H. Yost, director
of Intercollegiate Athletics, and Coach
Tad Wieman will also address the
candidates.
Two members of the Chicago Alum-
ni, Herbert Steger, '25, captain of the
1925 football team, and Meyer Mort-
on, '12L, will present the -silver foot-
ball emblematic of all-around devel-
opment and ability during spring
practice. This will be the fourth time
that the trophy has been, awarded.
Past recipients of the coveted prize
have been Ray Baer in 1925, George
Rich, in 1926, and LaVerne Taylor in
1927.

general improvement, attitude of the
player, and his value to the Varsity
team.
Grid practice this spring has been
one of the most successful ever held,
according to the coaches. The period
of training was extended to seve
weeks, longer than ever before. 11ow-
ever the candidates m'aintained thei
interest over the whole period.
In the four weeks following East -
er vacation the aspirants were divid-
ed up into six tteams, each under a
capable mentor.
A great deal of success for the prac-
tice can be- attributed to Coach Tad
Wieman, who directed the sessions, and
his assistants, Coaches George Veen-
ker, Franklin Cappon, Clifford Keen,
Ray Courtwright, Harry Kipke, end
Jim Miller. Director Yost was a fr-

The Chicago Alumni award is made ble pointers.

Considerable interest is centered
about the Iowa-Illinois game and the
Chicago-Indiana game as both Iowa
and Indiana, who are tied for second
place run the risk of being lowered in
the, list by Illinois and Chicago, who
are tied for fourth place. The out-
come is rather doubtful as the oppon-
ent's in these games have not met each
other before this year.
