stances, the total cost being less than $25.00, which is the lowest for a
number of years. This total includes expenses for all the important
features at the Falls as well as for railroad fare, hotel accommodations,
and the like. Nearly two days will be spent in the Niagara area.

The rise of the Brooklyn Robins
in the National League and the St.
Louis Browns in the American have
been the feature of the major lea-
gue races during recent weeks. The
Robins were admittedly a good
team when the season opened, but
have spent some time finding them-
selves. In the case of the Browns,
however, the rise has been one of
a weak team which was doped to
have only an outside chance of get-
Brooklyn closed its home stand
of 20 games Sunday, and when the
dust had cleared away, 16 of those
games were on the black side of its
ledger. The Robins got consider-
able kick out of the fact that the
last three wins, scored in succes-
sion, found John McGraw's New
York Giants on the losing end. The
Giants are the team that Uncle Wil-
bert Robinson's clan always is gun-
ning for. That series placed the
Robins in third place, only a half
game behind the Giants.
The Browns have never won a
pennant in the junior circuit and
in the last few years have been
kicked around in the second divi-
sion. Their present winning streak
has been one of the most satisfac-
tory to the faithful few in the
Mound City that they have ex-
perienced in years. It included
wins over the mighty Athletics and
three out of five over Washington
as well as victories over other teams
in the league that have visited St.
Louis. As a result the Browns are
now in fifth place, not far below
the .500 mark and dangerously
close to the fourth place inaians.
Charlie Griffin, Michigan State's
great wrong-sided pitcher, has
proved an enigma to Michigan dur-
ing the last two years. He has met
Ray Fisher's charges four times and
has humbled them each time. And,
to make matters worse he hardly
had to do more than toss out his
glove n the final contest this year
In his first appearance a yea
ago, Griffin won by a 3 to 1 margin
That day it was Griffin at bat as
well as in the turret. In the final
game of the 1930 season, he yielded
12 hits, but Dick Montague:, Michi-
gan's starting pitcher, had so lit-
tle to recommend him, that State
won 8 to 4. Then, in the first of
this year's three game series, Grif-
fin won by an identical score, 8 to
4. Lefty McKay gave up five runs
in the first two frames of the con-
test, with the result that Michigan
was unable to catch up. The sea-
son's finale saw Griffin hold Michi-
gan to seven hits, and with his
mates clouting Kiegler, won by a 5
to 0 score.
Verne Compton was on the hill in
the two games in which Michigan
defeated State this year and last.
A year ago he defeated the Spar-
tans 6 to 3 and this year 3 to 1.
He never hooked up with Griffin
in any sort of duel. And now
through school, while Griffin has
another year before him.
The writer once saw Griffin work
in a contest advertised as being a
state championship high school
game. Griffin then was pitching'

For more than a quarter of a
century, in fact, since 1904, the an-

Detroit and Buffalo navigation
lines, which necessitated missing

This year, for the first time, the
expedition will go by way of the
Michigan Central railroad, making
a saving of several dollars in fare,
as well as the fact that no classes
will be missed.
Last January's phenomena, the
great nichecaused by the fall of
rock from the American cataract
increases the interest of this year's
trip, since it will be the first oppor-
