PRICE) Tomorrow will be a Mardi Gras day for University of Kentucky baseball followers, so great is the importance attached to the annual clash between the Michigan and the Wildcat bull teams to be played tomorrow aftenion at 2:30 o'clock. The Wolverines have come to the Blue Grass ten times to play Ken tucky, and have gone back to Michi gan nine times with the scalp of their victim hanging on their belt. Once, in 1924, the Wildcats have been able to repulse the invaders with a decisive defeat. In that game two years ago Kentucky pr6bably showed the great est playing ability, that has ever been exhibited by a Wildcat baseball team. Captain Riffe, playing at that time his first year on the varsity, drove in practically all of the runs, got three hits out of three times up, and made some spectacular catches in the out field, acomplishments that were potent factors in winning the game for Kentucky, 9 to 8. Last year, Michigan received litle opposition and won a loosely played contest, 18 to 5.

No assessment will be made to replenish the treasury, and the Kernel will refrain from the sale of any wares to help promote the dinner. All guests, the members of the active staff, havo been asked to bring no monetary repwesentatives, and to refrain from breaking fasts before the night of the banquet. Honor Guest Invited The Kernel will have three honor guests at the dinner, Miss Marguerite McLaughlin, Miss Irene McNnmnra, and Prof. Enoch Grehan, head of the journalism department. The original plans culled for invitations to Arthur Brisbane und Dorothy Dix, but it was finally decided that the greater part of the evening's success depended on a careful election of honor guests.
