GRAND RAPIDS, Dec. 5.-(/P)-
E. W. Diskerson, sports promoter of
Grand Rapids, announced today
that he and other interests here are
negotiating for purchase of the
American Association franchise of
the Toledo Baseball club. Dickerson
said the Grand Rapids group would
not be interested in joining the re-
organized Central Baseball League.
Although several other groups
are bidding for the Toledo fran-
chise, Dickerson said he-was hope-
ful of obtaining it for this city.
The club would be brought to
,Grand Rapids if he is successful in
negotiating the purchase, said Dick-
erson, who is a former president of
the Western League and an old time
ball player. He was7 president of
the Western League in 1917.

room of the Intramural building
has been changed so that a maxi-

affair. The bouts are scheduled toI
get under way directly after 4 p m.
These matches will serve to bap-'
tize several of the newcomers on
the squad. Coach Keen is anxious
to see how some of the men will re-
act under fire in their first official
bouts. He stated that the majority
of the squad is in desperate need
of experience although they look
unusually good in :practice.
Hirato will start in the 118-pound
class and either Landrum or Fiero
will get the call for the second posi-
