The team is bolstered by the pres-
ence of four returning lettermen,

and doubles matches last season.
The tentative lineup against Pur-

Rivals, Here in First Big Ten Game

123 East Washington
On Eve of Game
By BILL LAMBERT
Big Ten baseball's oldest rivalry
will be renewed at 4 p. m. EWT (3
p. m. CWT) today at Ferry Field when
the Michigan nine meets Illinois in
what Coach Ray Fisher promises to
be "a real tight ball game."
Although the veteran mentor re-
fused to make any prediction, his at-
titude toward Michigan's first Con-
ference tilt was one of confidence.
He commented that "this will be a
crucial series," and that it will be
some sign of the Maize and Blue's
chances this season.
The Illinois-Michigan feud on
the basepaths dates back to 1892
when the Wolverines trounced the
Illini 18-0, and finds the former
on top in the number of wins with
50 victories against 37 defeats.
Last year, the Orange and Blue
club from Champaign put the only
blot on Michigan's Conference record,
when it tied Fisher's team 4-4 in an
air-tight game which was finally
Coach Wallie Roettger brings his

Results To Help Select

Trials in all field events, including
the pole vault, high jump, shot put,
and discus throw, will get underway
this afternoon. Hurdlers, sprinters,
quarter-milers, and distance men will
be put through their paces tomorrow.
Results Not Conclusive
Results of the trials will not be con-
clusive, but should give Doherty a line
on the performance of some of his
indoor stars when running outside,
and will also give him a chance to
look over some of the new prospects
who reported at the beginning of the
Saturday's program will be high-
lighted by a five-mile relay bringing
together Michigan's 10 top distance
runners. This race will help Doherty

next weekend. Final decision on the
Relays' squad will not be made until
