h1ring New League Into List
of Summer Sports
All men interested in the formation
of a summer baseball league are urged
to attemd the baseball mass meeting
to be held in the auditorium of the new
science building tomorrow night at

The league this year will, as in the
past, consist of four departmental
teams, lit, law, engineering, and sci-

of amen from the pharmic, dent, and
medic departments. A schedule of
nine games will be played, the con-
tests being staged on the Ferry Field

league and several players with pro-
fessional experience, will' form a
nucleus for the teams.

nine, has written to Athletic Director
Edmunds in regard to a series of
games to be played between the Nor-
malites and a picked team from the
University league. Besides these
games, it is probable that several con-
tests will be booked with teams froos
the City league.
San Antonio, Texas, July 11.-
American marines are reported to
have been fired upon and forced to
withdraw while seeking mines at Tam-
pico, recently, according to the El
Dia, a newspaper in BMonterey. The
report was purported to have been
made by General Naffarcite to General
Trevino, and im part follows:
"'t'oday two launches of the Amer-
ican warships lying at the entrance to
the port attempted to remove some of
the mines that I have placed at the
bar. Since they did not obey the sic-
nals made to them to suspend their
efforts, I ordered that a volley be
fixed at them. The crews of the
launches returned the fire, the ex-
change continuing for some 15 min-
utes. The launches then retired.
"From the movements of the Amer-
ican ships, it appears they may be
planning to disembark forces.
