Two of the squads that will meet are knotted in the number two spot in the league standings and will be fighting for the runner-up position for the year. The Bergland Vikings will travel to Bessemer to meet the Speed Boys in what boils down to the final all-out effort on the part of both squads and Ironwood will meet White Pine in an effort to end the season with an unblemished league record. Both Bergland and Bessemer have identical 3-4 records and the Vikings, who nave been sitting in second place most of the season, will be trying to snap a three-game losing streak. Bessemer, on the other hand, has come up from the depths of the league ranks to capture the tie and will be fighting to remain in that spot. * * * Bergland started the season in championship form as it downed the Hurley Midgets 9-1 in its first gam a and beat White Pine 10-2 in the sec o n d contest.

The team faces the toughest part of its schedule in the next three weeks. Success in that period could go a long way in keeping the team in the thick of the pennant race. The Tigers' remaining 80 games are split right down the middle—40 against the teams currently ahead of them in the sandlngs and 40 against the second division clubs. But 18 of their next 23 games are against the other first division teams. A two-game set against Washington at home ''_ i and a three-game series in New Baltimore i York completes the rugged ! portion of the schedule. The Tigers finished the first half of the season with a creditable 46-36 record,. good for fifth place, seven games back of Minnesota. Thirty-three of the victories came at the expense of second division clubs.
