This will mark the first time that a college hasehall team of the Miihi Kan Intercolleeiate has Keen invited to the Michigan Metropolis to meet a team in that eity, after the i lose of the eolleeiate rollejje season. It is also the first time that any out side eolh'je team has heel) invited into Detroit for siuli a purpose. The enterprise is heinf harked by sport writers of Detroit newspapers, who feil that, following the sensa tional finish that tlu- Alma collegians made in the Michigan lnt rro!lce,iat" race, the Maroon and Cream e;anu of ame busters is the be t possible drawing card to be used in intirinj the public to part with th.eir money for the benefit of the disabled cte rans. Tlu ctdleKians did fiot he-itate in the least when the proposition for the-name was put up to them. They were delighted to try coin !u: i ns with Detroit's best amateurs, arid more than pleased to have an opportunity to play for- the benefit of disabled soldiers. President Navin of the Detroit Timers cheerfully planted the use of Navin field for the purpose v. hen the benefit iinic was proposed to him, and tlu- ci Medians will base toe (hance to battle on the sod that is beinx made famous the country over as the place where Detroit Timers are snarling at all comers and turn ing the ill bath to defeat in the American league race.

Friday two practice sessions will he held by the collegians on Navin field to get the men accustomed to the diamond. Saturday morning a third practice session will be held. Coach Campbell believes that the three workouts will do much to steady his squad of first year ball players when they fate the thousands of people Saturday afternoon, who will be out to watch the fray. It is not known yet whether1 or not Koger Wright, injured first sat ker, will be able to play. If the Cross well product is still unable to get in to action, his place at first will be taken by "Ked" Caity, the Detroit freshman, who proved such a sen sation in the fourteen inning cham pionship tilt at Albion "which Alma won 4 to IS in copping the M.

A. who during the latter days of the season pitched the most effective ball of his entire career in turning back., the minions of Coach Young of Kalamazoo and Miller of Albion, is expected to be the pitching selection for the colleg ians. If ever a pitcher was deserv ing of starting a battle that has been awarded to the Almaites as a result of their season's play, it is Critten den's due to start the game. If he is right there will be no walk away for the Detroiters, but a bitter battle in which both aggregations will be forced to fight for the least possible advantage, and the patrons at Navin field will feel well repaid in watching a team of college players, who will he fighting with the same kind of determination as that which forced the M.

OPEN CONFEKEHC ANNUAL SI! MM Kit CONFERENCE AT ALMA COPLFCE TO HE HELD JUNE ;l TO 10. The annual summer conference the lower section of Michigan will b held at Alma College from July 'A to July 10, during which time numerous Christian workers from this section of the state who are seeking training for leadership in Christian work will be present. The conference this year promises to exceed any that the past, if such a Every effort has been made to secure the best possible conference leaders, and some notable Christian workers will be on hand to help direct the work. Among the matters which will be taken up at the summer conference are devotional Pible study, foreign Writing from Washington to the Grand Rapids Press, Mark Foote, widely known political observer and writer, says that the wets are mak ing what is considered in Washing ton a pructically uselss fight for light wine and beer. The anti-prohibition forces which will submit a light wine and beer proposal to the voters of Michigan the fall election and put up wet candidates against members of con gress who voted for the Volstead act have a long, hard row to hoe. The proverbial rocky road to Dublin is a smooth highway in comparison. Well informed opinion in Washington is that light wine and beer is a delusion, a chimera and a snare to catch the unwir y. The optimistic hibbler who votes for this proposer with any idea that he soon may be able to quench his thirst for the old, mild, alcholic bev erages stands about one chance in one hundred of having his dream come true. The odds are all against him. Michigan adopted prohibition be fore women voted and long before the war by a majority of lo 1,000 votes. A year later the state voted down the proposition to allow the sale of light wines and beer by a majority of 207, 000. Has disgust over lack of en forcement and difficulties over the en forcement of the law proceeded far of j enough to overturn this great major ity, especially now that the women have the franchise? Suppose Michigan should vote for light wine and beer. Then Uncle Sam's statute, the Volstead law and the Constitution would step in to turn hope to ashes.

A Small Crowd Attend the Circus The John Robinson circus, which visited Alma Saturday, drew one of the smallest crowds that has wit nessed a production under the large tented cities here in a score of years, and it is very possible that Alma has lost her cast as a "circus town" as a result. It is legarded as very probable that the late hour at which the big show arrived in Alma from Muskegon might have been one of the eause-s of the small attendance that greeted the show. The circ us did not arrive here until about 'J:.'!0 Saturday morning. As a result, all effort was bended in getting the "big top" ready for tlu show, it was impossible to stage the naiade until neailv 2:00 n. m. The parade was held, however. A little over an hour late the first show was given, and in the evening the night show was held at the regular hour. Many people who came into the city early in the day to see the- pa rade and possibly to attend the show, after waiting around until noon, to see the marvels that the small child ren and even the grownups dedight in when the parade comes down the street, left for their homes. Other factors probably had consid erable to do in keeping down the at tendance also. Some of the ads tint were given by the performers under- the "big top" were exceptionally good, and de-lighte-d those- who attended, and it is to be regretted that a far larger at tendance could not have been pre-cut to have witnessed these acts.
