The Third Annual Faculty Base
The full measure of fun that had been
premised was realized yesterday after-
noon when the faculties of the Uni-
versity and High School opposed each
other on the baseball diamond. The
game that has come to be recognized
as an annual event drew a large crowd,
as crowds go this year at Regents
Field. The co-edd did themselves
proud and almost outnumbered the
boys, while their enthusiasm was in-
The trouble commenced before the
umpire or anyone else ever thought of
caling the game, but it increased to
such magnificent proportions when the
play started that all former plays or
misplays were forgotten. Some changes
were made in the line-up as published
yesterday. Sid Millard played first for
the High School while Simons and Ja-
kobs substituted in left ield and at
short stop. State Representative Saw-
yer occupied the middle garden. For
the 'Varsity Brandon toots the place of

Prof. Johnson, too, won his share of
the honors. When the game was nearly
over he ran way back in left fieid and
pulled the ball out of the air, spoiling
what had threatened to be the longest
hit of the afternoon. The crowd went
wild, and had the professor been a
smaller man his chances at a free ride
on their shoulders would have been
good. Louis Strauss distinguished him-
self at bat rather than in the field, get-
ting to first every time tither on four
balls or a foul fly.
For the High School the tarswere
not many, but those that were did well.
Springer at different times played at
both ends of the battery and was in the
game all the time. His work: at the bat
and on the bases was on apar with the
best, or perhaps a little above. Jocelyn
demonstrated that while he can't play
baseball as well as he does tennis he
still does play at both. His abilities as
a sprinter were unquestioned after he

Pennsylvania and Michigan Will
Meet in Debate.
The following self-explanatory letter
was received from Prof. Trueblood from
Wim. Draper Lewis, dean of the law
department of the University of Penn-
Professor Trueblood, Michigan Univer-
sity, Ann Arbor, Mich.
Dear Sir--The debate committee of
the University of Pennsylvania, with
the approval of the Provost of the Uni-
versity, Dr. C. C. Harrison, desires to
accept the offer of Michigan University
for two joint debates between the stu-
dents of Michigan and the University
of Pennsylvania, the basis of the agree-
ment being our present agreement with
Cornell as modified by your letter of
May 18th, with the exception of the
date for the debate. In reference to the
date it is with great regret-because I
understand it throws some doubt ctn
the possibility of arranging for the de-
bates-that I have to tell you that our
examinations are so arranged here that

around of players was made.
The playing on both sides was fully
up to expectations, and in some cases
far ahead. Trueblood had the crowd
with him from the moment he first
stepped to the plate and assumed "first
position right." His hitting was su-
perb and his fielding of like character.
At all times "thought and composi-
tion" were apparent in his play and his
delivery was of the kind that aeeps

that our examinations begin on the 15th
of May would render it impossible for
any of the law students to tale part
in a debate coming in April, and with-

feel that it can take up the matter-by
I sincerely hope that you will be able
to meet us in this matter, as we all
would sincerely regret losing the op-
portunity to debate with you because
of the impossibility of arranging a date.

Yours very truly,
W. DRAPER LEWIS.
In answer to the same Prof. True-
blood offered the date of March 3 for
the coming debate, which was ratified
by the local oratorical board at its
meeting last night. The debate will be
held in Ann Arbor. The question will
be submitted by Michigan on October
15, Pennsylvania to choose its sides by
the first of November. At the meeting
of the board last night the routine btsi-
ness for the year was finished up and
