Coach "Ikey" Clark is determined
that the next game will show a vast
improvement as regards the fielding
of the 'Varsity and let loose the
torrents of his wrath yesterday at
several of the men who were inclined
to loaf. The hardest practice of the
season was gone through with and it
was nearly 6:30 p. m. before the
men were allowed to quit the diamond.
A shaking up of the team is possible.
Kirkbride 1900 M., was tried at
short where he made a good im-
pression. Taylor played third and
"Shorty" Rogers second a part of
the time. Snow was not out, owing
to boils on his leg, and Bennett, a
former Ann Arbor High School man,
held down the initial bag.
The baseball training table was
started at Prettyman's last night.
The following men were taken:
Mohr, Lunn, Lehr, Miller, Snow,
Matteson, Sullivan, Flesher, Davies,
Blencoe and McGinnis,beside sCoach
Wednesday the 'Varsity plays
the Indiana Uiversity team which is
reported to be playing fast ball. It
has defeated Purdue this season
which has a good team.
Nearly a hundred men are training
for the track team at the field every
afternoon and are rapidly getting in-
to shape. Michigan will be stronger
in the weights this year than ever
before. Avery is getting the double
turn in the hammer throw nicely and
Caley is putting the shot well, while
the discus men are doing good work.
The bicycle squad is hampered by
having no place to train, but a squad
of six are doing road riding daily
and getting as good practice as possi-
ble. The squad includes York,
Sproat, Baldwin and Earl, the latter
a Chicago rider of some experience.
The sprinting department has been
weakened by the loss of Junius
Wood, the 'Varsity's crack mile
runner of the past two seasons. He
has been obliged to quit the track on
aecount of parental objetiors. There
are some good men in training, how-
ever, for that event and Wood's
place may be filled. Barrett and
Hartsburg are laid up with temporary
injuries, but will be out soon.
Fifteen men will go the track
team training table which starts to-,
day. The list is as follows: Captain
McLean, Teetzel, Hatch, Westphal,
Avery, Caley, Adams, Brookfield,
Runnels, Tryon, Hayes, Russell,
Thompson and Flournoy. More will
be added as they show their fitness.
Drs. Vaughan, Cushny and Dock
are in Washington this week in at-
tendance at the yearly session of the
Association of American Physicians.
Each will present a paper on their
special lines of work to the members
of the association.

Outing Supports Michigan's Stand.
In the May Onting appears an
article by Harry F, Kendall on the
athletic situation in the middle West.
It is his'opinion that the present
wrangle between Chicago, Illinois,
Michigan and Wisconsin will result
in establishing on a firm and lasting
basis the college athletics of the
Regarding the effort to eliminate
professionalism, he writes as follows:
"Illinois, I believe I am right in
saying, led the good work by trying
to live close to tte amateur standard,
and in so doing was for several years
badly handicapped, both in football
and baseball. It takes considerable
stamina to stick close to amateur
ethics and lose games to opponents
who openly violate them, but this is
what Illinois did for several seasons;
and, in my opinion, deserves more
credit than is generally given for ad-
vancing the cause of athletic purity
in this territory.
"A long and stubborn contest for
supremacy was made before the
Michigan Board of Control was
really in control and running the
athletics of the big university on
purely amateur lines; but that is
what Michigan has accomplished,
and they are now becoming sticklers
on the enforcement of the amateur
"Chicago followed Michigan pretty
closely, but Wisconsin required some
disciplining before being convinced
that athletics must be established on
The Death of Frederick Lewis
Brown, '99 E.
The remains of F. L. Brown, who
was drowned in Whitmore Lake
Sunday evening, were zecovered yes-
terday morning at 10 o'clock. They
were taken to Bay City by his father,

Frederick Lewis Brown, son of
Fred'k P. Brown, was born in Bay
City, Feb. 24, 1878. He graduated
from the Bay City High School with
the class of '95, and entered the
Mechanical Engineering Department
of the University the following fall.
While in this department, from
which he was to graduate in June, hae
proved himself an exceptional stu-
dent. During his entire college
course he missed but one day, and
alvays had a high standing in his
classes for scholarship. He was also
prominent in the athletic contests of
He spent his summers working in
machine shops and ship yards, in
order to perfect his engineering edu-
cation. He received a very flatter-
ing offer from the Industrial Works
of Bay City, the largest wrecking-
crane manufacturers in the world,
and intended to take a position there
after his graduation in June. In
1900 he expected to go to the Paris
Exposition and remami three years to
pursue engineering studies.
