Miss April forgot her showers Monday afternoon at Stoll Field and wintry blasts ruffled her skirts while a
Kentucky ball team was frozen in a
7 to 4 defeat by some diamond dusters from the University of Illinois.
Mr. Jeffries committed a costly error
in the sixth when Illinois made five
runs, and this man Ericson, the blond
Viking from Sweden, fanned the air
with a funny bludgeon when hits in
the pinches meant runs.
Stumbling up from under Southern

their winter furs and looked as for

four runs and held the Illinois batsmen to a prayer.

game, played on April 4, the Petrels
just nosed out the 'Cats,
very tight game. Boswell, Petrel star,
hit a homer in the second inning, scor
ing three runs, and providing the
game winning margin. Jeffries and
Gilb were the heavy stickers for the
Blue, getting two hits out of five
times at bat. Lawson, Petrel pitcher, struck out nine Kentuckians, and
aided materially in winning the game.
Wert had a very bad day, walking
seven men and hitting two others with

errors, but the 'Cats could not avail
themselves of many of these as scoring aides.
The second' game ended a tie, 414,
in the tenth inning. After a ninth
inning rally had pulled them into an
even break, the 'Cats were forced to
leave after the tenth inning In order
to catch a train for Tennessee. Oglethorpe was off to a good start, scoring three runs in the first inning.
Kentucky got two runs in the ninth to
tie the count. Bob Rhoads pitched
the game for Kentucky and aided his
team materially with the willow, hitting a home run, triple, and scoring
three of the four runs.
