'VARSITY FIELD DAY.
Several Records Will Probably
The annual 'Varsity track and field
meet will be held at Regents Field this
afternoon, and there is every indication
that this will be the most successful
meet held here in years. The work of
the candidates in practice and in the
handicap and Illinois meets has been
of a high grade. All are in good con-
dition and the rivalry is keen.
With the exception of the quarter-
mile run all of the events to be held at
the Western Intercollegiate meet will
be contested. The dropping of the quar-
ter-mile run will give added interest to
the half-mile run; as the quarter-milers
have entered and several will push

phal will maks things warm in both,
and it is expected that the local record
in the latter will be lowered.
In the field events the most interest
centers in the weight events. The work
this week has been the best shown.

Freshmen RtectOracle Board.
The meeting held by the freshman
class yesterday afternoon for the pur-
post of electing a board of editors for
next year's Oracle was unusually quiet
and orderly. The vice-president, Miss
Gylling, presided in a very masterly
manner-, and it was no doubt due to this
fact that the rowdyism which Is gen-
erally prevalent in such meetings was
done away with.
There were two tickets in the field,
and the elections was closely contested,
the highest number of votes received
by a defeated candidate being 1-01, and
the lowest number received by a suc-
cessful being 118. Mist Margaret H.
Cousin, of Detroit, received a unani-
mous vote, being on both tickets. Miss
Mary L. Brapjhaw, of An Arbor, ran
exceptionally welL. The other members
of the board will be Wareham Bald-
win, of Detroit; Arvid C. Braastad, ofa
Ishpeming; Ben R. Davis, of Chicago;
Henry C. Felton, of Clinton, Iowa; F.
L. Lorie, of Dtro ;- . -.'M'

Batting and Fielding Averages of
the Base Ball Team.
Below are given the standings of the
'Varsity players who have taken part
in five or more games. As will be seen
Lehr leads in both batting and fielding,"
with a clean record in the latter. The
system of sacrifice bunting; which has
been so successfully followed by the
'Varsity, has cut down the batting aver-
ages of several of the players. Espec-
ially so is this in the case of Wolf, who
has done some remarkably clever sacri-
ficing, which of course does not show
up in a batting table. The standing of
others has also suffered.
The 'Varsity's record to date shows
15 games won, 12 lost and 1 tied (Bay
City). There are yet to be played eight
or nine ganes, six of which will be
played on the home grounds. The Be-
loit game of tomorrow and the Notre
Dame game June 9. will be the big
hoie games. Other games to be playod
here are with Northwestern, Detroit
Athletic Club and another yet to be de-
cided upon. Chicago will be played
at Chicago and Detroit, and Cornell at
Ithaca. . ,
