Varsity Baseball Team Makes Fine;
Showing on Spring Tour-The
Scores-Changes in the
Team Probable.
Michigan's baseball team returned
to Ann Arbor Saturday with a rec-
ord of five games won out of six
played. Director Baird states, that
within his recollection, this is the
best record that a Varsity baseball
team has made on its spring trip.
On the first Saturday of vacation
the Varsity ball tossers went up
against Chicago, Michigan's traditional
foe, and took the Maroons into camp
by a score of 9 to 4. Wendell, the
freshman from the Detroit University
School officiated in the box and his
twirling was of a high order.
From Chicago, the Wolverines
moved on to Madison and there suf-
fered the only defeat of the trip, be-
ing shut out by Wisconsin 3 to 0.
Nagle was the Varsity box artist and
his pitching was good enough to win,
but weak stick work lost the game.
On Tuesday began the tour of the
Michigan colleges when Kalamazoo
went down to defeat 6 to 4, Albion
was defeated 17 to 0, :Hillsdale 9 to3,
and the Michigan Agricultural college
7 to 3.
In Wendell and Nagle, Michigan has
a pair of promising pitchers, and
Ward's work in the Kalamazoo game
was also good. Campbell did the best
hitting on the trip and his fielding
was first class.
The fine showing of the team makes
the prospects of winning the Illinois
game on Saturday appear somewhat
brighter. Hard practice will be the
order for the rest of the week, and
special attention will be given to bat-
ting and getting the infield to working
together. Every year, there has been
a change in the makeupi of the team
after the spring trip and it is not
probable that this year will prove any
exception. Reinger, a fresh law has
been showing up well and he may be
stationed at second base in Saturday's
game. Capt. Redden going back to

it will leave Aldringer, Carrothers,

University Hall Now Considered Safe
for its, Large Audiences-Two
New Fire Escapes Com-
A few weeks ago University Hall
was by no means the safest assembly
room in the country, but a great
transformation has taken place since
that time. On account of the near-
ness of the May Festival, which prom-
ises to be the largest ever held, the
work has been rapidly pushed in the
erection of fire escapes and the hall
can now be classed with the best pro-
tected ones in the country.
The Iroquois fire, which brought the
people all over the country face to
face with the problem of fire protec-
tion, also benefited Michigan in the
fact that the large assembly hall has
been made safe. It seats 2,677 people
but there are now 30 fire escapes by
which the building can be emptied.
The main fioor has three exits at
the back, two fire escapes on each
side connecting windows of the hall
with those in the wings, one under
each end of the platform connecting
with the ground floor, and two flights
of stairs leading to the ground.
The gallery can be emptied by three
exits in the rear, a flight of stairs on
each side leading to the lower floor,
three windows on each side to bal-
conies, and four windows on a side
opening on to the roof of the wings.
A walk with a railing has been built
along the iron roofs of the wings to
small pilot-like houses connecting
with the two main stairways of each
wing. The doors opening into these
are always unlocked. At night the
stairways are lighted by incandescent

that for the past week of vacation

Someone turned in an alarm and
soon the clang of the fire engine and
hook-and-ladder was heard. However
the fire was not extinguished, nor was
one fire considered enough to properly
express the enthusiasm of the stu-
dents. Two more were lighted, one
