Defeat Georgetown College in First Game
The Kentucky Wildcats defeated the
Georgetown Tigers Friday afternoon,
by a score of 8 to 3, In the first varsity
baseball game on Stoll Field this season.
With the sun playing

old Kentucky from suffering defeat by

Familiar faces were to be seen in
various positions on the Wildcat diamond. Kohn, Muth and Mlzrach were

were scampering around the second
cushion, Thomas was preparing to
"take 'em off behind the bat," and
"Doc" Lasley was adorning the pitcher's mound. Two first year men in
the University were pccupying the
corners of the infield. O. Brown, from
Louisville, was on first and "Dutch"
Burnham was on third base.
Jim Parks, a graduate of the University of Kentucky, a big league
pitcher of wide reputation, and now
the director of athletics at Transylvania University, called "Play Ball" at
Lasley's Style Is Starlike.
The dependable southpaw of the
Wildcats, iLasley, who earned for him
self such an enviable reputation last
season, started the first game of the
season. He walked the first two men
up, and then settled down to real Wild'
cat style of pitching. Several times
during the game he showed his ability
to pitch himself out of a hole. He
struck out five men and fielded well.
In the seventh inning Slomer, a new
comer and a twirler with speed and
curves aplenty, was given a chance on
the mound. He allowed only four hits.
Thomaa began his second season with
the Wildcats as backstop, with the
same old pep and dependability. Captain Zerfoss played a steady, errorless
game at shortstop.
Propps got two
clean hits, and had the distinction of
making the first score for Kentucky.
Mlzrach poled out two safe hits, one
of them a

three runs. Kohn secured two hits

Bailey, pitcher for the visitors, did

Two Games With Volunteers
Will Be as Good as Any
Wildcats Will Play This
In the Volunteers from Tennessee,
Kentucky's Wildcats will find a worthy
foe, according to all tips, when the two
teams line up on the Stoll Field diamond next Friday and Saturday afternoons.
The Volunteers encounter Centre
College at Danville on Tuesday, then
will march over to Lexington and
camp at the Phoenix hotel for several
days. From this location they expect
to launch four "drives." On Wednesday they will engage Georgetown College In Georgetown, returning to Lexington to meet Transylvania on Thursday. Friday and Saturday the Kentucky Wildcats will come to the rescue
and stop the attempted invasion in the
conflicts of those afternoons.
Tennessee is confident and so is
Kentucky. Meek, who won two games
from Kentucky last year, is expected
to pitch one of the games this week

This is the first time this year that
the "Grand Old Man of the Campus"

largest audiences of the year is expected. Dr. Patterson has been in
vlted many times this year to speak
in chapel but the inclemency of the

The Senior class will attend in a
body and occupy "Senior Corner." Other classes will occupy their respective

side of the chapel, Sophomores in front

their left. Moving day exercises will
be held soon and it Is important that
each class know its position.
