Was the Work ofl the 'Varsitil in
Saturdaij's Game.
that the Michigan team is in need
of some stiff hard practice in fielding
was demonstrated in Saturdays game
with Illinois which was lost to the
latter team, 7 to 3, chiefly on ac-
count of Michigan's errors which
proved very disastrous. The num-
ber of errors credited to the 'Varsity,
0 in number, tells the story of how
the gance was lost. Stupid hase
running also did much to keep the
Michigan score down. This time it
was Michigan's turn to score the 3
runs which Illinois has beencin the
hal it of making in the past nine
gi me3 with Michigan.
Tne day was an ideal one and be-
tween 800 and 900 people turned out
to see the first home game of the sea-
son and there was plenty of enthusi-
sm, in marked contrast to the uni-
versal lethargy of the crowds of last
spring. The game began with Miller
and MeCollum is the opposing
pitchers. Illinois started off well.
Lotz was hit, went to third on a
sacrifice and scored on Blencoe's muff
of Adsit's fly. The latter came
loie on Fulton's single making two
rus. to Illinois' credit. Michigan
tied the score in the fourth. Matte-
son was hit, went to third on a passed
ball and scored on Snow's sacrifice.
He stole second and third and clever-
ly came home while Fulton, on
second, was taking a nap.
The score was even until the
seventh when Illinois by two singles,
aided by Matteson's overthrow of
first and Snow's highi throw over
third scored four runs, thereby
cinching the game. Michigan made
but one more run on Blencoe's single,
a sacrifice, and Miller's steal of
second on which Blencoe scored: The

was among the best ever seen on
Regent's Field. The infield handled
the ball so quickly that the Michigan
men had hardly started before the
ball was in the hands of the first
baseman. Flaegler Illinois' third
baseman did the best work for the
Illinois infield. Lotz's catch of a
difficult foul fly on the left field line
called forth much applause from
the spectators.
McCollum, the Champaign south-
paw has a trick of appearing to de-
liver the ball to the batter and in-
stead throwing to first which fooled
no less than four Michigan men. If
not a balk it comes perilously near
to being one. Coach Clark made a
formal protest to Umpire Jones,
claiming that it was a balk, but the
Umpire did not see it so. Lundgren
replaced McCollum at the beginning
of the fifth, the Illinois coach not
wishing to let the Michigan batsmen
get on to his curves, there being two
more games to be played between
Illinois and Michigan,
Miller never pitched better ball
than lie did yesterday. But six hits
were made by Illinois and not a run
of their seven was earned. Eight
Illinois batters could not touch the
ball in their turn at lat. Miller
also fielded his position well, backing
up Ltnn on a throw home onces
which the latter missed. Miller
stopped the ball and prevented an-
other score.
No jeering, or roastin was in-
dulged in by the crowd and the
Illinois team was granted the cour-
tesy they deserved.
For Michigan the best work was
done by Miller, Davies and McGinnis.
Davies made several difficult catches
while McGinnis, in addition to his
good fielding was the only player in
the game who had a stolen base to
his credit.
Dean Hutchins not to Leace.
Dean Hutchins of the law depart-
cent returned yesterday from Iowa
City, where lie had been several days.
When asked by a DAtLY representa-
tive in regard to his trip he replied:
" I went to Iowa City at the invita-
tion of the regents of Iowa Univer-
sity to look over the ground. I have
not been tendered the presidency
either by the committee or regents,
and consequently not accepted it.
And the probability is that I shall not
leave the University."

President Angell and Dean Hutch-
ins attended the annual banquet of
the Chicago Alumni on Saturday.

The student body were shocked
last night to learn that Fred Lewis
Brown, '99 E., familiarly known as
"Jimmie'' had accidentally drowned
at Whitmore Lake yesterday after-
noon. In company with a student
named Cardell, Mr. Brown drove to
the lake and going out for a boat
ride, the gentlemen decided to take a
plunge. The wind caused the boat
to drift away and soon, seized with a
cramp, Mr. Brown found himself
sinking. His companion went to the
rescue and carried Brown along for a
while, but becoming weak was finally
forced to give up his charge and save
himself. Mr. Brown is a brother of
Mr. A. G. Brown, '02, of the DAILY,
a member of the Zeta Psi fraternity,
and' was a most congenial person.
Mr. A. G. Brown, in company with
a number of Zeta Psi men left the
DAILY office for the lake last night,
but had not returned or sent word at
8 o'clock. this morning, so that the
body has probably not yet been re.
Electors to Choose Next Year's
Board Selected.
On Saturday S. L. A. ticket
holders of the various departments
met at their respective places and
voted for electors to choose the next
year's board. Very little imterest
was maifested ic the election as is
shown by the fact that only about 50
came out to vote at both the law and
lit meetings. 'he lits elected by
acclamation the followig list sub-
mitted by the caucus committee: E.
S. Corwin, H. H. Corwin, R. C.
Woodworth, C. B. Hurrey, T. L.
Robinson, N. D. Ayers, L. J. French,
L. J. Montgomery, S. W. Utley, and
I. T. Raab. Ac opposition ticket
called the "Anti-machine Ticket"
was made up but not nomm ated.
.The laws elected by acclamation,
candidates selected by a committee
having in charge the interests of the
law candidate for president, as fol-
lows: Thos. Dooling. W. W. Withen-
bury, W. C. Geake, D. P. Weimer;
J. J. Fiedler, W. H. Witt, and W.
The lits have nominated for presi-
dent, L. Young, '00, and Jas. Evans
'00, for corresponding secrectary.
The laws nominated for presi-
dent, W. J. Zimmers, '00. It is
probable that the lit ticket will be
elected as one medic is said to be
committed to support it, thus mak.
ing a majority with the lit votes.
Prof. T. C. Trueblood and Mr. L.
