noon will eclipse everything. At 4:15
the 'Varsity Faculty will line up their
choicest team against nine cracks from
the High School Faculty and City
School board. Among the 'Varsity play-
ers will be found such old war horses
as Prof. Patterson, of Yale class team
fame; Prof. Pattengill, the only man
who ever knocked a ball over the med-
ical building, and many others. As to
the High School team everyone knows
the article of ball they put up. Each
team has won a game and that fact
will serve to make the contest to-
day a hot one indeed. Every member of
the 'Varsity faculty will be on the side
lies to root for their team, while the
citizens of Ann Arbor are preparing to
turn out en masse to cheer the High
School on to victory. The contest be-
tween the opposing rooters promises
to be as exciting as the game itself.
Everyone who is desirous of further-
ing the athletic interests of the U. of M.
should be on hand today, as half the
proceeds are to go towards fitting up
the trophy room in the gymnasium,
something of which we alone of the
large American colleges do not possess.
For that reason, if nothing else, let
everyone turn out. Admission only 25
cents. The line-up will be as follows,
subject, however, to frequent changes.

At the Athletic Board meeting last
night the contract with Chas. Baird for
graduate manager was settled and he
will begin his duties Sept. 1st. Dr.,
Spitzley was elected head surgeon for
the coming year. He is a graduate of
both the literary and medical depart-
ments, and for the past year has been
assistant surgeon at the Allopathic Hos-
pital. He is therefore well qualified for
the position to which he was elected
A Game With Cornell Possible.
The Cornell baseball management has
written here asking for a date at Re-
gents Field. Manager Keith is desirous
of making arrangements for a game,
as Michigan has open time, but says the
support given the 'Varsity will not war-
rant it. While ibichigan has this year
the best team in several seasons, the
attendance at the games has failed to
meet expenses. However, if the attend-
ance increases materially at the re-
maining home games, Cornell will be
arranged with and a great contest may
be looked for.
Grinnell won the Iowa intercollegiate
meet Saturday over the State Univer-
sity, Drake, Ames, Upper Iowa and
Cornell. The best record made was In
the running broad jump, which Hamil-
ton, of Grinnell, won, distance 23 ft.
Graduate lub Meeting.
The Graduate Club held its final meet-
ing for the year at the home of Prof.
Kelsey Friday evening. A paper was
read by Professor Stanley upon "The
Wagner Festivals at Beyreuth." Two
songs composed by Professor Stanley
were artistically given by Miss Bailey,
of the School of Music, before the pa-
Professor Stanley called Beyreuth a
place which had greatness thrust upon
it, as its quiet rural character was in no
worthy of note before Wagner festivals
began there. From his frequent visits
to the town Professor Stanley repro-
duced vividly its pastoral beauties, en-
livening his descriptions with the wit
and humor for which he is so deserved-
ly popular. The evolution of the music
drama as an art form was traced, fol-
Iowed by a sympathetic sketch of the
early life, the training and ideals of
Wagner. An impressive description of
the performance of "Pasifal," attended
by Professor Stanley last summer,
closed the paper, which was received
with hearty applause as one of the best
addresses enjoyed by the club this year.
Miss Bailey sang a selection from "Tris-
tan and Isolde," after which the grad-
uates exchanged sociabilities.
The business meeting of the club for
the election of officers for the next year
will take place Saturday afternoon,
June 4, at 1:30.
Letter to Alumni.
Acting-President Hutchins has Writ-
ten a letter to the Michigan alumni
suggesting the formation of local as-
sociations in the different counties. He
says that there are few counties which
do not contain alumni or matriculates
of the University, and points out the
value of local organizations at times
when the University needs the imme-
diate and earnest efforts of friends
and supporters. To the social meetings
of such organizations the University
would gladly send its representatives.
President Hutchins approves of the
plan recently adopted by the Macomb
County society, of inviting to these
meetings a number of leading citizens
of the county, outside the alumni
