Coach Clark has come to the con-
clusion that if some of the men on
the team do not begin to bat pretty
soon Michigan's chances for the
Western Championship will go a-
ghmmering. Accordingly for two
long hours yesterday afternoon the
men were kept busy at batting
practice. Pitcher after pitcher was
worn out and Clark himself took his
turn in the box About six o'clock
the team was given a few minutes of
fast fielding practice and the result
was that the players were pretty well
fagged out when the coach called
a halt. Matteson's shoulder is very
lame yet and it is doubtful if he can
play Wednesday when the team goes
up against Illinois. Yale and Mc-
Gargle are showing up well in pitch-
ing for batting practice and are re-
ceiving good training for next season.
Thursday of this week the 'Varsity
meets the Columbian Giants, former.
ly the Page Fence Giants. They are
a colored team and play a remark-
ably. fast and snappy game. They
have defeated some of the strongest
semi-professional teams in the country.
The players are big fellows with a
great reputation for hitting the ball.
The schedule of class games has
not been made out, but in all proba-
bility will begin on Saturday of this
week. The following classes have
entered teams: '99, '00, '01 and '02
lit.; '99 and '00 l.; '02 m. and '02 d.
The homeops will enter a department
teami accordimg to the permission of
the Athletic Board and the pharmics
have sent in a petition to the board
asking that they be allowed a de-
partment team also.
Next Friday is the annual 'Varsity
field day and the management are
making every effort to make it a'
success in all ways. The relay races
are to be a feature. Each of the
college sororities will be represented
by one of the teams and the winning
one will recieve a banner. Much
interest is being taket by the soror-
ities and an enthusiastic meet is as-
sured. The admission will be 25 cents.
Manager Baird has arranged for the
following football games next fall:
Western Reserve, Oct. 7; Case, Nov.
18; Kalamazoo, Nov. 25. All these
games are to be played at Ann Arbor.
Zeta Psi Memoriam.
The Zeta Psi fraternity has issued
a memoriam on the death of F. L.
Browne, one of the members of the
fraternity. The following are ex.
"Frederick Lewis Browne was
born Feb. 24. 1878, at Bay City,
Michigan. His childhood and early
youth were spent in attendance on
the public schools of his native town,
where he graduated from the High
School in June, 1895, entering the
University of Michigan with the
class of 1899.
''He was initiated a member of
the Xi Chapter of the Zeta Psi Fra-
ternity December 21, 1898.
''At the time of his death, his col-
lege course was within six weeks of
its completion. Throughout he had
been a most diligent worker, holding
a position always in the front ranks
of his fellow-students. Beloved by
his teachers and classmates alike, he
had attained a popularity which is
most fully attested by the sorrow and
sympathy everywhere expressed for
his untimely death. During his
college career he held the following
honors: Chairman Freshman Mu-
sical Committee; member Freshman
Glee Club; member Sophomore Cane
Committee; member Sophomore
Social Committee; member Recep-
tion Committee of Junior Hop; man-
ager Junior Football Team; member
Engineers' Glee Club, Sophomore
and Junior years; chairman Com-
mittee on Senior Football Reception.
"Cut off in the very prime of his
strong young manhood, just as he
was about to take his place in the
world, by an accident whose shock-
ing suddenness struck sorrow to the
hearts of all, his death can only be
accounted for as a decree of an all-
wise Providence beyond the ken of
"The Xi Chapter of the Zeta Psi
Fraternity herewith wishes to express
to the family of their deceased
brother their heartfelt sympathy in
this bereavement, a bereavement that
can only be compensated by trust in
God and the hope of the life to
