Excellent Papers Read Before the
Michigan Schoolmasters'
At the Saturday morning :eosion of
the Michigan Schoolmasters' Club sev-
eral live topics were discussed... Miss
Florence Barnard, of Mt. Clemens, took
up the subject of high school manage-,
ment with respect to morals.
Miss Barnard was followed by L. P.
Jocelyn, of the Ann Arbor High School,
who spoke on high school athletics, The;
speaker made a strong argument for4
faculty supervision of athletics for the
benefit of the student, the school and
the University. He proposed the fol-
lowing scheme. A high school athletic
association, a board of control of five
members, three of whom should be fac-
ulty men and the most popular teachers
in the school, and co-operation with the"
University. "The connection between
the schools and the University," said
Mr. Jocelyn, "is a vital one. Let this
connection be shown in athletics. As
the university advances in the quality
and purity of its athletics, so will the
high schools, the academies and private
schools. Young men whom the boards
of control have termed unfit for school
athletics should not, as a rule, be ac-
cepted by the university board. I think
it proper and beneficial to all concerned
that the latter should ask a young man
to bring a recommendation from the
board of control in his respective
school. This might prevent a repiti-
tion of the "Stuart" case. If the Uni-
versity is to keep pace with its fine re-
cord, and especially with the pace which
Chicago and Wisconsin are setting for
her, she must begin to train. her ath-
letes in their earlier-school life.
An interesting paper on high school
management with regard to social life
was read by Mrs. Florence Milner, of
the Grand Rapids High School. Mrs.
Milner pleaded for allowing the stu-
dents more independence and self-gov-'
A general discussion of these papers
followed, and was participated in by
Supt. S.' B. Laird, of Lansing; H. H.
Frost, of the Detroit High School, and
James A. Leroy, sporting editor of the
Detroit Free Press. The latter spoke
from the standpoint of the practical

Erahd Rapids; secretary, William H,
Scherzer, of Ypsilanti; treasurer, L. S.
Norton, of Jackson; executive commit-
tee, W. D. Baker, of Battle Creek, and
A. D. Curtis, of Adrian. The prelimin-
ary report of the committee appointed
to consider the advisability of holding
but one meeting of the club every year
was read by Supt. Hugh Brown, of Pon-
tiac. The committee was not ready to
make a final report, but of the replies
received from the teachers throughout
the state, thirty-one were in favor of
one meeting and only sixteen in favor
of two, as have been held for the past
ten or twelve years. The worning's
meeting closed with a discussion of the
functions of the Schoolmasters' Club,
papers being read by E. C. Warriner,
of Saginaw; Frederick Whitten, of the
Detroit High School for Boys; Prof. E.
A. Strong, of the Ypsilanti Normal, and
Prof. B. A. Hinsdale, of the University.
At 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon the
Modern Language conference was held
in the Tappan Hall lecture room. Pro-
fessor Walter, of the Uniiversity, pre-
sided. The program for the afternoon
was opened by Prof. A. Lodeman, of
the State Normal College, who read a,
paper on "The Qualifications of the
High School Teacher of Modern Lan-
guages" He said that as far as pos-
sible the teachers of modern languages
in the high schools should become spec-
ialists. They should master the .gram-
mar and devote particular attention to
the historical growth of the syntax,
Pronunciation should have considerable
attention. The ability to converse is
very important, as it gives the teacher
a better mastery over the language and
impresses upon the minds of the pupils
the fact that the language is a living
The second paper was read by Supt.
A. S. Whitney, of Saginaw, E. S., on
"The Four Year Course in Modern
Languages." He told of the many ex-
periments tried in the Saginaw schools
and the remarkable success of the four-
year course. The high.school courses
should be for the majority and not for
the few. The majority of high school
graduates never come to college, and
two years of German is entirely insuf-
ficient in which to master the language
so as to retain it.
Prof. Ernst, Wolf, of .saginaw, also
read a paper on the four-year course.
Sept. E. S. Thompson, of Saginaw,
W. S., read a valuable paper on the
question. The attendance was quite
large and considerable interest was
Afternoon conferences were . also
held on physics, botany, English
and chemistry. In the conference
in physics experiments were per-
formed by F. L. Keeler, of the Cen-
tral Michigan Normal, Prof. J. 0. Reed,
of the University, and Prof. C. F. Ad-
ams, of Detr'oit High School. The
speakers at the botany conference were
Miss Lenort Conover, of the Detroit
High School; Miss Fowler, of the St.
Johns Hight'School; Miss M. H. Horn,

'Varsity Wins a Close Game.
Colder weather than that of the day
before greeted the 'Varsity and Bay
City players Saturday,. but they never-
theless played an exceedingly fine game
in which the 'Varsity was again victor-
ious, this time by a score of 2 to 1. Mi-
er was in the box for Michigan and
pitched excellent ball, keeping the hits
down to five and giving only two bases
on balls. Five strike-outs are to his
credit. Lunn caught a great game. All
of the infield did well. In the outfield
Matteson played the star game. In the
second inning he made one of the finest
throws to the home plate seen oit the
grounds, and in the eighth pulled down
a long drive across the running track
that looked good for a home run.
Pangburn pitched for Bay City and
put triple the amount of steam into
his work than Damoth did Friday. The
'Varsity found him safely six times.
Sullivan, '01 Medic, caught for the Is-
itors and his work was faultless. All
of the players backed up the battery
Bay City scored only in the second
inning. Royce reached first on But-
ler's error, stole second and scored on
Sullivan's safe hit. Things were dan-
gerous for the 'Varsity only once aftr.
In the fifth Pangburn hit for three
bases but was left on third, the next
three men up being easy outs.
Michigan's two runs came in the
fourth. Davies reached first on a field-
ers' choice. On an error by Royce he
scored and Matteson went to third,
scoringsoon after on Bishop's hit,
Eight innings were played.
