BASEBALL SQUAD ALSO '
' MEETS WITH HARD LUCK
ADAM8, A FORMER PITCHER WHO
HA8 RETURNED, 18 INELIGIBLE.

Jayhawkcr Squad Is Confident of Vic

First Defeat at Washburn J"J'
Is hard luck to follow university
athletics through; tho wholo year.?
First ih football, then 4In basketball,
now In baseball does Damo Fortune
enter nnd pursue tho university ath
letic teams with vengoanco. Tho foot
ball season last fall was far from a
success, and the basketball team has
also been subject to a run of Tiard
luck, and now to follow this up hard
luck follows in tho wako of the bnse--ball
Ono of the brightest hopes for a
strong slab -squad was tho fact that
ono of tho Qld varsity pitchers had re
turned to the university and hud ent
ered baseball practice. This was
Adams, who was ono of the best pitch
ers on tho university teanra- few years
hgo. Ho was on tho team but one
year and then loft tho university.
Played With Peru.
While absent from tho university
Adams entered Poru Normal and
while thoro participated in athletics
and pitched for tho baseball toam of
that college. When ho returned to
tho university thiB year It was thought
that ho was tollglbla for tho varsity
team and that with him in tho box tho
university would havo a strong slab
artist to depend .upon in . critical
games. "T .
Upon investigation it was dfsdbv
pred that Adairm had played at an
other school for a year and that per
haps under tho ruling of tho athletic
board ho was thoreforo Ineligible for
tho diamond gamo thlB year. This wub
because he came under tho ruling that
oTnust 1)0 aTeaia&tftfof thOTiniversity
for a year and this ho has fulfilled.
But as botwoon tho tlmo ho was a
student at tho university and tho.
present tlmo ho wa student at an-
t other school and participated in ath
letics at that school ho must therefore
' bo considered a now student at tho
university this year. At present tho
matter is under -consideration and will
ho decided in a few days.
