THE KENTUCKY KERNEL UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY LEXINGTON, VOL IX CATS CLEAN TIGERS 1919'S IN BASEBALL ENTRY Spectators Brave Inclement Weather to See Kentucky 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 behind the clouds, and a cool breeze blowing in the face of the crowd as sembled on the bleachers, Captain warriors took the Held to prevent old Kentucky from suffering defeat by Tiger claws. k Zer-fos- s' Shades of 1918 Seen. Familiar faces were to be seen in various positions on the Wildcat diamond. Kohn, Muth and Mlzrach were In the garden; Propps and Zerfoss 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 4:00 o'clock. 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 and brought in three runs. Kohn secured two hits and two runs out of three times at the bat. Tiger Pitcher Gets Poor Support Bailey, pitcher for the visitors, did not receive the support due him from the field, and worked hard in the pinches to keep the score down. Errors were plentiful in the Georgetown field, and especially at third base. Dean, of Georgetown, and Kohn and Mlzrach, of Kentucky, furnished the three-bagge- (Continued on Page Two.)

OLD ENEMIES FROM THE SOUTH HERE ON FRIDAY Two Games With Volunteers Will Be as Good as Any Wildcats Will Play This Season 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 He will be opposed either by Lasley or Slomer, who promise to convince him that he has been in a real base ball game before the decision is ren dered.

Miss Bolser is ill at present and Elizabeth Marshall Is doing splendid work In her part. She will continue to rehearse as Miss Bol ser's understudy. The role of Alice Exern, companion to Freda Guildford, will be taken by Elizabeth McGowan, who appeared as the "irrepressible Philip" in "You Nev er Can Tell."

Close Guarding President Emeritus James K. Patterson will speak in chapel on Friday to the Seniors of 1919. His subject will be of his own choosing. This is the first time this year that the "Grand Old Man of the Campus" has appeared in chapel and one of the 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 weather has confined him to his home. The extraordinary vigor of his intel lect has served to belie the usual con sequences of 86 years of life and altho his health is not always good, he Is as active in thought as a far younger man. The Senior class will attend in a body and occupy "Senior Corner." Other classes will occupy their respective places. Freshmen will sit on the north side of the chapel, Sophomores in front of them and Juniors and visitors to their left. Moving day exercises will be held soon and it Is important that each class know its position. and Fast Playing Feature; Wilhelm, Rogers Cousins and Gorman Star Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity basketball team defeated the Sigma Nu quintet in the finals of the basketball series in the gymnasium at the University of Kentucky Wednesday night, by a score of 8 to 6.
