ti
Tomorrow morning the Normal base- i,
ball team will leave tor a three-day
trip in the northern part of the state. /
playing Moundsville High, West Lib- I
erty Normal and Bethany college. The
three games are probably the strongest
combination that the Normal will this
year have on her schedule. Moundsville
High was last year state high '
school champions, playing several of "
the Ohio colleges as well as a few '
league teams without losing a single 1'
game. Many of the same players arc e
again in the line-up and will make the t
normal play real college baseball to r,
win.
On Friday the team will go to West 1
Liberty where they will meet the West n
Liberty Normal. West Liberty is tl
known throughout the state for its
baseball teams and If its 1917 team is e
in any way compared to its previous ti
teams, another hard, game is expected A
for the Normal. is
