Receives the Attention of "The
Voice" This Week
Some time ago "The Voice," the radi-
cal temperance paper, commenced the
publication of articles collected by its
special correspondent relative to the
drinking habit and morals in general
at the leading American universities.
As a result of these articles followed the
exposal of affairs at Princeton which
culminated in the well remembered con-
troversy regarding Princeton Inn. Dur-
ing the past few days the U. of M. has
been under investigation by a corps of
special 'correspondents, and below will
be found a synopsis of an article which
will appear in this week's issue of "The
While the moral atmosphere is much
better here than at Princeton, Yale,
Cornell or Columbia, yet it is far below
that of Harvard. Drinking is carried
on by a very large per cent of the stu-
dent body and the sentiment in favor
of saloons is quite strong. Much credit
according to "The Voice," is due to the
zeal of those students who have allied
themselves with the anti-saloon move-
The sensational feature of the article
is its treatment of the fraternities,
which it characterizes as "the most
immoral" which the correspondents
have ever investigated. They are made
abodes where the licentiousness and the
carousals of its members can be carried
on free from the public gaze. Their
members are a "fast set," engaging in
gambling and drinking and more de-
grading vices. Private student clubs
also come in for their share of criticism.
The police officers and other city offi-
Cials will be made the subjects of strong
condemnation for their laxity in en-
forcing the laws. The article concludes
by paying the University high tribute
as being one of the grandest and most
democratic institution in the country.
It is especially free from- "snobbish-
ness" and "uppishness." The officers
of the local association desire it to be
known that the article in "The Voice"
did not emanate from 'them, neither
are they in any way responsible for its
contents. The entire article is the work
of correspondents of the Voice who
gather their own information.
The last home game of the season
will be played this afternoon, when the
'Varsity meets the strong team from
Notre Dame University. It will doubt-
less be one of the must interesting
games of the year, as both teams are
playing a fast article of ball, and are
anxious to win. Notre Dame defeated
Michigan early in the season, and to-
day will do their best to duplicate the
performance. On the other hand, the
'Varsity is determined to wipe out the
defeat and will go into the game with
the "do or die" spirit.
The Notre Dame team has had a suc-
cessful season. They are champions of
Indiana and have sustained only one
defeat. The captain of the team,
"Mike" Powers, was last year consid-
ered the best college catcher in the
west, if not in the country. At the
end of the season he will join the New
York National League team. He was
a member of the famous Holy Cross
team at the time Soxalexis was setting
the east wild with his playing, and was
made several flattering offers *-y league
managers. 'Gibson, their pitcher, is a
steady, reliable player, and with Pow-
ers as backstop will give the 'Varsity
trouble enough. They have played to-
gether three seasons.
Notre Dame's record for the year is
as follows: April 18, Notre Dame 4,
Michigan 2: April 29, Notre Dame 12,
Ncrthwestern 1; May 14, Notre Dame 5,
De Pauw 2; May 20, Notre Dame 0,
Wisconsin 5; May 25, Notre Dame 10,
Indiana I; May 30, Notre Dame 8, St.
Viatus 6; May 31, Notre Dame 12, Chi-
In a letter written here Captain Pow-
ers says in part: "We expect a battle
royal, and we know that we will have
to play the best game that we have
played this year in order to win. Our
strongest team will to in the field."
The 'Varsity's practice ycsterday was
confined to light work. All are in
The game will be called promptly at
4:10 o'clock. If enthusiasm shown and
talk concerning the gam' amounts to
anything, the largest crowd of the year

Danforth won the University cham-
plonship in tennis yesterday by defeat-
ing Herrick i one of the beast played
matches ever seen here. Herrick won
the first set 6-0, but Danforth braced
up and took the next three sets 8-6,
6-4, 6-3. Brilliant plays were common
and both men put up an excellent game
but Danforth was the steadier.
In the semi-finals of the doubles Her-
rick and Danforth beat Ripley and Mee
6-2, 3-6, 7-5. In the second class sin-
gles Crofts beat Hartman 6-4, 6-1, and

good tennis should not fail to be pres-
ent. Admission will be 25 cents, ladies
'99 Defeats Dents.
'99 downed the '00 Dents yesterday
by a score of 9 to 4 in the best game
that has been played in the class series
so far. Both teams put up an excellent
fielding game, but the Dents were un-
able to bunch their hits to advantage.
'99 fell on Herrig the fist inning and
knocked him out of the box, making
seven hits which netted six runs. Bes-
el, who replaced him, pitched an excel-
lent game and kept the hits well scat-
tered. The features of the game were
the playing of Bishop and Bannon, of
'99, and the batting of McCall of the
Dents. Batteries: '99, Keith and Bish-
op; Dents, Herrig and Berson and Beis-
el and Martin. Score by innings:
'99 .....................6 0 1 0 2 0 0 0 0-9
Dents ............... 0210010000-4
This leaves '99 and '01 in the finals
for the University championship. The
game will probably be played next
