Ball Game and Indoor Meet Yes-
Almost every incoming train yester-
day brought in athletes from various
igh schools throughout Michigan to
participate in the inter-scholastic meet.
The first delegation to arrive was that
from Lansing, which included both the
track and baseball teams. The visitors
were taken directly to the Waterman'
gymnasium by the reception committee,
where they were assigned to quarters.
The only high school entered that
failed to come is Ishpeming. It is a
great disappointment to the manage-
ment as well as the Ishpeming team,
but because of the heavy expense it is
unavoidable this year. They write that
next year they will surely be here to
The Lansing and Ann Arbor ball
teams started matters yesterday after-
noon with a game at Regents Field,
the latter winning out by a one-sided
score of 11 to 4. The Ann Arbor team
showed up strongly in team work and
at the bat, and clearly out-played the
boys from the state capitol. The teams
lined up as follows:

The state and international committees
of the Young Men's Christian associa-
tion are doing a social and religious
work among the boys in blue at the
state and national encampments, sim-
ilar to the work done by the associa-
tion under the name of the Christian
Commissione during the rebellion. The
association maintains a tent in each
camp where reading matter and sta-
tionery are provided free to the boy.

purpose a collection will be taken Sun-
day evening. Let each one give what
Whist Club Elect Officers.
At a meeting of the Whist Club
Thursday afternoon the constitution
was amended so that the election of
officers should take place in the spring
instead of the fall. The following offi-
t cers were elected: President, Lee Flans
I berg, of Kalamazoo; vice-president
'Varsity at Chicago.
The 'Varsity team left for Chicago at
1:38 yesterday over the Michigan Cen-
tral. Chicago University will be played
on Marshall Field this afternoon. Miller
and Lunn will do the battery work for
Michigan, and Smith and Gardner for
Chicago. Result of the game will be
telegraphed to Sheehan's bookstore.
"Johnny" Butler tendered his resig-
nation as captain just before the team's
departure. He has been out of the game
for two weeks owing to an injured fin-
ger, and thinking that he might not
be able to play any more this season
considered that it would be to the best
interests of the team that he resign,
and an active player be elected to the
position. It is not known what action
will be taken by the team, but if the
resignation is accepted, Condon, who
has been acting-captain, probably wilt
The enforced absence of Butier from
the game is regretable, as he was strik-
ing his true gait, batting strongly and
fielding in fine form. He has made an
excellent captain, and it is hoped will
sufficiently recover from the injury to
take his place in at least a part of the
Co.A. At Chickamauga.

ever held in any of the high echool
meets, and showed careful training on
the part of the contestants.
The winners of first places were
awarded silver medals, while the sec-
ond best men received bronze medals.
These places do not count in figuring
out the states championship. All of
today's events, both at the fair grounds
and at Regents Field, will be consid-
ered, first place to count 5, second 3,
and third 1. First place men will re-
ceive gold medals, seconds silver med-
als, and thirds bronze medals.
