M Men Win Last Game in Prac-
tice Season--Depart for Dixie
Land Today.
The training season for the nine is
over and things have settled down to
the serious reality of intercollegiate con-y
petition. The squad, together with
Coach McAllister and Manager Kennedy,
will leave on the rtr :32 this morning for
sunny Kentucky, and tomorrow will see
a good or a bad start on what ought to
be one of the greatest seasons in the
history of Michigan baseball.
The final practice game between the
varsity and the scrubs was played yes-
terday amd the flaws revealed were few
and far between. The batting of the
entire team is materially improved and
the pitching staff is in good fettle. Barr
will probably do most of the pitching,
but Donahue and Linthicum will come
in for a good share. Snow is the utility
man selected for the trip. He is batting
nicely and if needed in any of the field-
ig positions will prove far from a

ihe sun shone brightly and the diamond
was protected from the slight breeze byy
the grandstand which covers the north
and east of tlce held. Linlticum, Barr
and Sincock pitched for the scrubs, with
Emerman receiving. For the varsity
McAllister pitched to Enzenroth for the
lrst few innings. 'Ihen Donahue twirled
with the coach behind the bat. The var-
sity won the game, 5 to o.
In the first' oing neither of the
pitchers was solved, but in the second
the "M" men found" Mac" and clouted
him around the field until the bags were
filled. Kelley was up. -He caught the
ball for a pretty single and two of the
ten on bases found their way home.
In the fourth inning Wheeler sacrificed
and in the fifth a hit to left field netted
him two sacks and brought i brace,
For the rest of the gamue neither of the
teams could score.
Barr pitched a strong game, as, did
Sicock. Donahue and Litthicum were
a bit inconsistent, but their work was
of such a quality that they need not be
feared in collegiate company. Both En-
zenroth and Emersan cttaught well,
whipping out a number of wouldhe
stealers at second.
Quite a number of fans were out to
see the last game, and there will be a
good-sized bunch at the train to see them
on their way.
Fifteen men will take the southern
trip. They are Coach McAllister, Man-
ager Kennedy, Captain Sullivan, Tft,
Dunne, Kelley, Paterson, Giddings, Mel-
lon, Wheeler, Barr, Donahue, Linthi-
cum, Enzenroth, and Snow. They will
play as stated in yesterday's Daily. The
tour will be: Ann Arbor to George-
town; Georgetown to Knoxville; Knox-
ville to Lebanon; Lebanon to Nasville I
Nashville to Crawfordsville; Crawfords-
ville to Ann Arbor, arriving home on
the date of the opening of college.
The meeting of the senior engineering
class yesterday was mainly taken up with
the report of committees. A senior sing
was held about the senior bench last
night. It is planned to hold these sings
every one or two weeks after the holi-
days. A double quartet will lead the

Those who remain in Ann Arbor dur-
itg vacation will have the privilege of

gists and Bacteriologists on April 17 and

est and most select of national' scientific

Prof. Felix E. Shelling, of Pennsyl-
vania, who will tell "How to Read an
Elizabethan Play," on Wednesday, April
22, has a most charming personality and
ts one of- the best liked mett on the
Pennsylvania faculty. He was bornt 'in
Switzerland and was educated for a mu-
sician. Even today he is a mrvelous
performer on the piano. His tithe now
is .almost entirely taken ttp with the
study of the Elizabethan drama. He
treats this subject from an historical
point of view. He has spent much tine
n England and Itondon studying tlhe
surroundings atnd conditions which in-
fluenced the Elizabethan writers, ie
also has made a deep study of the atti-
tude of each writer and treats the play
from this .point of view. He is an in-
timate friend of Furness, the editor of
the Veriorttm edition of Shakespeare,
and his suggestions have proved ery
helpful to that writer,
Just reently Pyof Shelling published
a book, "The History of Elizabetlan
Drama.". His book is a. most compre-
hensive treatment of ,the. subject andd
many of the most competeuf. critics think
it the best written book irecent years.

No. 145.
President Angell Says It Is of
Vital Interest to Faculty Men
and University.
The importance of the announcement
that Andrew Carnegie will add $5,ooo
ooo to the Carnegie foundation, or what-
ever sus may be necessary to include
as pension beneficiaries such professors
of the state universities as are eligible,
is perhaps underestimated by a great
many. President Angell yesterday stated
that he considered the action to be of
the most vital interest not only to the
faculty members as individuals, but to
the University as a whole.
"The extension of the gift to faculty
members in state institutions," said
Dr. Angell, "in the first place will bene-
fit these men who, on account of the
inadequacy of the salaries which they
receive, have not been enabled to save
enough with which to support themselves
properly in their old age. But, more-
over, it will benefit all the state univer-
sities also because it will enable them
to secure better men. Sometimes, since
the gift of Mr. Carnegie to the other
institutions, men of exceptional ability
have been unwilling to accept positions
in state schools, naturally preferring to,
labor where they will be snsre that they
will be well proeided for in the future:
The new order of things willsput the
state university on an equality with the
schools which formerly were given an
unfair advantage to some degree at
"The gift does not yet extend to the
sectarian universities and colleges. It
has been rather difficult to decide jut
which institutions are sectarian and
which are not. In general such schools
as are required by their charters to have
as their president or a certain proportion
of their governing body members of
some particular demonimation, have been
ruled to be sectarian. Those also in
which, by their charters the board of
trustees is selected by the governiig
body of the church are included in the
same class.
"'The additional gift will effect ap-
proximately forty universities. As in
the future the state university will prob-
ably be the most important one in at
least two-thirds of the states, its import-
ance can be more easily estimated."
Prof. Andre Beziat de Bordes lectured
Son Corneille's "Horace" yestgrday after-
soon, as one of the regular 'Thursday
afternoon French legtues. Readings
from this drama were given to illustrate
this lecture.
f rnof. Beziat compared the treatment
aofCorneille's "Horace" with tose of
Italianand Spanish autsors who had
otreated Ise same suhject before him.
Corneille in this play showed noe or-
iginality of inventio thassits anyother
of his dramas. It was shown how the
Play typified Corneille's ideas of tragedy,
for in "Horace" the style known as Cor-
neillian was typified to a greater extent
than in his other tragedies.
The next French lectures will be given
beginning April 30, on the subject of
"L'Avare" whicl wille tesented May
8 at the New Whitney, y the Cerc e
Dramatique Francais.

Prof. Lorch will take a party of eight
or ten architectural students for a five
days' visit to Chicago tonight, on the
so0:a0 train. The studtensts go to study
metropolitan architecture and will give
special attentionto. office buildings, fank,
stores, museums, and churches
