Varsitmj Will Meet Indiana This1
The first mid-week game of the
seaso i wil be played this afteriooi.
Indiaiia Uiiversity is the opposiig
team, and judging from indications
Michigan has no cinch On the game.
Indiana has defeated Purdue which
always puts out a good team. Some
changes will be seen i the make-up
of the Michigan team. Matteson has
a very sore shoulder and will be un-
able to enter the gaie. Sullivan'
will be placed at short while in all
probability Rogers will hold down
second. Tlhe rest of the team will
be the same as ii Saturday's game.
It has not been fully determined
yet as to who will pitch but Miller
will probably start the game and
without doubt several of the candi-
dates will be given a trial i the box.
The game will begii at 4:15 p. im.
Besides the eleven men mentioned
yesterday as taken to the training1
table, Taylor, who played second oni
the spring tril has been added.i
Coach Clark intends to take on
several more in a few days if they
fulfill expectations. -
Next Friday afternoon Captain i
McLean iitends to hold a trial meett
in order to get a little practical in-
formation as to the merits of the
various candidates. There will be
no handicaps and the captain and
traner wil thus be enabled to find
out how the men act under compe-.
tition as well as their merits. The
meet will start at 4 p. in. One week
from Friday is the regular field day.
It was postponed fron this week
Saturday ii order to give the men
more time to get iito shape.
The class teams are all out and
every foot of space available on the
fair gro""ds is beiig "sed bysome
one of the seven or eight teams
practicing there. The class series
promises to be very hot this year as
most of the teams are stronger than
usual. '99 which won the champp
ionship last spring will put practic-
ally the same team in the field. '00
will put up a good team with Miller
f 'Varsity experience it the box.
'01 has a strong team. Hill a
forier Hillsdale college player will
probably pitch for. them. 'The
freshman team is an unknown
quantity as yet.
In the professional department the
strongest teams will probably be the
junior laws and the fresh medics.
The latter team has been practicing
before vacation and is playing goodl
ball. The homeops will have a de-
partment team which will compete as
a class team according to the per-
mission of the Athletic Board. Their
strength is as yet a question.-
The common council at their regu-
lar meeting elected Dr. W. A. Spitz.
ley as city physician for the ensuing
Seniors Select a Memorial.
After several meetings of wrang-
ling and discussion over the question
of a memorial, the senior literary
class has finally arrivedat an aica-
his agreement, and at yesterday's
meeting of the class, decided to adopt
its committee's report. The report
was that the class secure a cannon,
mount it, and dedicate it to the
Michigan soldiers of the late war.
The cannon can be obtained
through the local G. A. R. Post, un-
der aii act ofCongress, andcan be
secured iii time for the dedication to
take place before commencement.
The entire cost, including the mount-
ing and engraving the names of the
soldiers, will be no greater than the
average class memorial.
The class took action on the recent
death of F. L. Brown, and appointed
A. H. McMillan, P. W. Jones ana
Paul Moody as a committee to draw
up suitable resolutions. A commit-
tee consisting of Chas. B. Hole, J.
G. McHenry and Miss F. L- Petit,
was empowered to select an appro-
priate floral remembrance. The '99

members to attend the funeral, which
occurs at Bay City today.
A baseball tax of 25 cents per mem-
her was voted, and the manager of
the baseball team was empowered to

Prof. Coolem on "Personal Compe-
The April number of Economic
Studies published by the American
Economic Association, is by Prof.
Charles H. Cooley on the subject,
"Personal Competition-Its place in
the Social Order and Effect upon
Individuals, with some considerations
The author treats his subject "with
no special reference to industry or
commerce, but rather with a view to
the part that it plays in social life as
a whole, and to the effect it has upon
the character and happiness of men."
After discussimg the intensity of com-
petition and the relation o' competi-
tion to association, lit take up "Suc-
cess and Morality." After a reful
discussion of this subject he reaches
the conclusion that, admitti g what
execeptions you please, right is more
The seventh headmg of the article
is entitled ''Restlessness Insecurity,
and Strain.' This is an aduirable
chapter and one well worth reading
by one imterestedi m the social prob-
lems of the ties, as it takes up an
important factor which is particu-
larly influential m the United States.
The point urged is, that in spite of
the evils attendant upon this keen
comnpetitiou, it promotes imdivid uality,
self-reliance and earnestness to a high
'he tone in the entire article, while
recognizing the present days evils, is
decidedly hopeful and not filled with
the pessimism found il similar
articles so frequenitly. The essay

Athletic Board Meeting.
The regular weekly meeting of the
Athletic Board was held last evening.
Besides the routine business of allow.
ing bills, much other business of im-
portance was transacted. The treas-
urer reported a balance of $750, re-
ceipts from Godfrey's Band $13.45,
from the athletic dance about $60.
At this time last year the association
had $2,000 which was drawing inter-
est. Retrenchment will have to be
made in both the baseball and track
departments, or there will be a large
deficit at the end of the year. Every
branch of athletics will be run as
ecouumically as is posiil without im-
pairing itsefficiency.. It hasbeen de-
cided to issue a Business Men's ticket
for the home basball games. These
tickets will admit to six games and
will be sold for $2.50. Not restricted
to memibersof the AthleticAssociation.
The old league baseball grounds on
Michigan avenue it Detroit will be
used for the two Detroit games this
year. The D. A. C. grounds which
have been used formerly, were al-
ways in such bad condition that this
change was thought best. The fol-
lowing have been appointed as yell-
masters for the baseball games this
year. H. B. Potter, chief yellmaster,
