* and Michigan would be the main con-
tenders for the title. Ohio State and
Iowa both have strong teams and
either may prove a dark horse in the
championship race.
Illinois has won more Conference
baseball championships than all the
rest of the Big Ten colleges put to-
gether. The Urbana school is always
well represented on the diamond,
and this year promises to be no ex-
ception. Coach George Huff has the
best pitcher in the Conference in the
person of J. L. Klein. He also has
a couple more first class moundsmen,
so that his team should never be
without reliable pitching. As pitching
has proved the biggest factor in col-
lege baseball, this should be a tre-
mendous advantage to the Illinois ag-
gregation. A training trip consist-
ing of eight games was taken by the
Illinois squad before the opening of
the Conference season, thus getting
all the men in good condition for the
Big Ten contests.
Miehi'an Looks Strong
Although Michigan has not played
in the Conference for many seasons,
critics believe she will make a strong
bid for the title this year. Baseball
has always been a big sport here
at Ann Arbor, and Coach Lundgren
has been responsible for many ex-
cellent teams. This spring the Wolve-
rines have two strong pitchers, Glenn
and Ruzicka. The infielders handle
their positions well and together with
the outfielders make up a heavy hit-
ting outfit.
Ohio State has a well-balanced team,
although it is largely composed of
green material. The Columbus school
won the Conference baseball cham-
pionship last year and are hoping to
repeat again this season, but criticsj
believe their chances are small. Iowa
with seven letter men back is report-
ed to have a powerful nine, but they
have yet to test their mettle against
the stronger Big Ten teams. Wiscon-
sin is well supplied with pitchers, but
in other respects is rather weak.
However, they, may spring a surprise
and prove a contender for the title.
Chicago Has Chance

1920 TO WIN
Entries are coming in at a faster
rate for the inter-class meet, to be
be held next Saturday. Upperclass-

Bill Knapp, broad jumper, made the
best mark in throwing made so far
since the new event was introduced.

Knapp made a total score of 22.

Doping out the probable winners in
Saturday's meet is difficult in some of
the events. Johnson is sure to take
first honors in the 200 yard low
hurdles, the 120 yard high hurdles,
and the broad jump, although Beards-
ley will push him closely in the hurdl-
es, and Knapp will give him a hard
struggle in the broad jump. If John-
son enters the 100 yard dash, it is
likely that he will cop that contest,
too. Cook, another sophomore on
Coach Farrell's Varsity, ought to take
the 220 yard dash, but he will be giv-
en some stiff competition by Bulger
and several yearlings who have been
showing up well.

At the remaining Conference col-
leges prospects are far from bright.
Northwestern and Minnesota have been
forced to give up varsity baseball for
this year at least, while at Chicago,
Indiana and Purdue there are practi-
cally none of last year's men back.
The outlook at Chicago, however, has
brightened considerably since the be-
ginning of the season. With a victory
over Michigan to their credit the Ma-
roons are doing far better than was
at first expected, and if they keep up
their present stride they may yet
figure in the championship race.
Now that grenade throwing has been
added to the list of standard field
events for the Conference outdoor
track meet, to be held on Stagg field
June 8, Coach Farrell is beginning
to develop material for this event.
Doctor May is also much interested
in the new event, as he intends 'that
the military companies shall devote
considerable time to it during their
regular time for athletic drill.
Rules Simple
The rules are very simple-accur-
acy and distance are the essential re-
quirements as long as the thrower
hurls the missle in the proper way.
There are three targets at distances
of 75, 1A0 and 125 feet, respectively.
Each target consists of a bulls-eye
with five circles around-it. The circles
vary in size, the nearer target having
the smaller circles around it. The
throws are :made from a pit six inches
deep, four feet broad and three feet
long. Each contestant is allowed three
throws at each target, the inner circle
counting five the next to the center
four and so on.
Targets Laid Out
Doctor May has already laid out the
targets and the pit from which the
throws are made. He intends to start
work on this event as soon as pos-
sible. A meeting will be held on Fer-
ry field Saturday morning at 10:30
o'clock, of men weighing 175. and over
and who are at least five feet nine
inches tall and who are interested.
Any R. O. T. C. man- who shows up
well in this event will be taken over
to the Varsity track squad immediate-
ly. as Coach Farrell is very anxious
