Michigan Defeats Bay City In
the First Game.
Michigan's opening game yesterday
with Bay City was played in anything
but ideal baseball weather. Rain and
snow fell at intervals and the wind was
raw and piercing, but despite this the
'Varsity put plenty of life into their'
work and won an easy virtory by a
score of I1 to 2. Only six innings were
played. Damoth, who pitched for Bay
City, did not let himself out, and the
'Varsity pounded him safely fifteen
times for a'total of twenty bases. Dav-
ies led the battery with three hits, two
of which were doubles. Condon, Cool-
ey, Gilbert, Matteson and Bishop fol-
low with two each, With the excep-
tion of two wild pitches by McGinnis
and a. passed ball by Thompson the
'Varsity's fielding was all that could
be desired, nst a fielding error being
made. A very neat double play was
made by Cooley, Gilbert and Condon
is the fourth inning, and was heartily
applauded by the crowd, as was a fine
catch by Davies in center. Both Mc-
Ginnis and Lehr did fine work in the
box. The former pitched the first five
innings, and with the exception of the
fifth inning was steady . He succeeded
in striking out nine men, and held the
vsitors down to three hits, one of which
was a scratch. Lehr pitched 'the last
Inning and showed speed. Two strike-
outs are placed to his credit. "The
only" Lowney played in his character-
istic style for Bay City. He was as craf-
ty as ever and stole no less than three
bases. Pangburn's playing in left field
was a feature and was cheered. All
of the visitors are gentlemanly players,
and the entire series of games may be
counted upon to be enjoyable.
Michigan drew a blank in the firs-t
inning but in the second scored file
tines. In the third three two-baggers,
three singles, a base on balls and three
errors were the means of tallying nine
runs. In both the fifth and sixth in-
nings 'two runs were scored.
Bay City scored one in the first on a
hit, a base on balls, a wild pitch and a
passed ball. The other score came in
the fifth, when Lowney bunted safely
and three bases on balls forced him in.

Mathematics Has Its Day.
The Schoolmasters' Club held its con-
ference in Mathematics yesterday after-
noon in the lecture room of Tappan
Hall. Prof. Beeman presided and pro-
ceeded at once to the program by in-
troducing Miss Annie V. Hedrick, of
Oak Park High School, Illinois. Her
paper was on" Accuracy in Mathemat-
les in the High School," and contained
many vaittable suggestions. The dis-
cussion from the -standpoint of Ithe col-
lege was by Prof. C. B. Willilms, of
Kalamazoo College. He commended
the ideas and suggestions of Miss Hed-
rick, and offered as his own sugges-
tion that the courses in secondary
schools be simplified much more than
Following. him, Prof. Ales. Ziget, of
the University, read his paper en "The
Infinite in Mathematics." It was fuil
of practical illustrations of the uncer-
tainties which arise in dealing with in-
finity and with zero. Much ;nterest in
the subject was manifested by those
present. "The Trisection of an Angle,"
by Prof. Henry Benner, of Albion Col-
lege, was the next paper. In it several
methods for obtaining the trisection of
SOCIAL ORGANISM. .
Ably Treated By Prof. N. 1'.
Prof. H. P. Gilman, of Hoston, editor
of "The New World," gave an-unusual-
ly interesting lecture on "The Social
Organism" before the Philosophical So-
ciety yesterday. Social ornganism is a
phrase that has crept into general lit-
erature from scientific works. The nat-
ural sciences throw but little light on
the subject. Cestain writers interpret
society as an organism analogous to
those considered by biology and physi-
ology. But it can't be a biological or-
ganism. Society is a natural psycho-
logical corporation. Herbert Spencer
says if it is not inorganic it is organic.
This is true if the organic and inorgas-
i include everything. It is true if
there is no superorganic.
This term is justifiable as meaning an
organic whole or body. In this mean-
ing of organism society has often beet
'alled an organism in literat-.re. Paul,
Shakespears, Thomas Hobbes and Pas-
cal have all referred toit. Pascal said
all generations were as a single indi-
vidual past, present and future, living
in all time in every country. It is well
to make the comparisot tn imetaphor
but when we go into a particular sci-
entifle analogy we tread on dangerous
ground. Society is not truly and ac-
tually organic because it is over and
above a biological organism. And that
is what makes it distinctly a human or-
ganism. Spencer says "Society is an or-
ganism." Fle finds many points of like-
ness to an organism tnd devostes a
large part of his book to tracing out
the analogy. He traces out the growth
ard differentiation, etc. And American
