Freshmen Win By a Score of 10 to 5
One of the most hotly contested of the
series of class games was played yes-
terday afternoon between the senior
and freshmen laws at Regents' Field.
As is customary at lan games a large
crowd of rooters was along the side
lies and it was as with difficulty that
they were kept outside the ropes at cer-
tain stages of the game. The fresh-
men showed up in good shape and sup-
ported their pitcher throughout the
game. The seniors lacked practice but
considering this played a good game.
Their hits were scattering -while those
of the freshmen n-ere bunched just at
the proper time and with stolen bases
won the game for them. There were a
numser of errors on both sides but
those of the seniors were the most
numerous and most costly.
Fisher pitched a fine game all through
and the same can be said of Witt until
the sixth inning when he commenced
to let up. The batters found Witt more
often than they did Fisher but they
could not hit him safely until the sev-
The game was played quite evenly
on both sides until the sixth inning,
the score until that time being three
to three. Tse freshmen then added
one but it was reserved for the fated
seventh to settle matters, the freshmen
batting once around and making six
scores which cinched the game as they
made no more during the rest of the
game. Mathews singled, took second
on an error and scored on McCrae's
two bagger. "Mac" reached third on
an error there and after McDonald had
struck out crossed the pan on McAl-
pin's hit. McAlpin reached second long
after the ball did but the baseman fail-
ed to touch him. Slosson's two-base
hit brought him in. Slosson stole third
and Fisher singled, bringing in Slosson.-
He went to second < eMohr's error,
stole third and came hote on a passed
Tuehill, playing Fitch's former posi-
tion, took a base on balls and stole sec-
ond. Shaw filed outt to short and
Thomwa cas put out at secnd finish-
ing the list.
Runs were made by Pettit and Ash-
craft for the seniors in their half after
which men from neither side scored.
The score by innings is as follows:

324 SO. STATE ST.
Some Freakish Letters are Brought
to the University Nearly
Amidst the vast amount of iail mat-
ter received at the office of the Univer-
sity Secretary, is often found a letter or
postal which is a curiosity as showing
either what a queer place some people
think a college to be or what strange
people there are in the world. Numerous
letters come offering curiosities for sale.
Most of these are animal monstrosities
and it seems to be a common impres-
sion that the museum is the grateful
recipient of almost anything differing
from the usual style of rural live stock.
One man crote that he had no doubt
that the University would be pleased to
learn that he possessed a live three
legged chicken, which could be secured
at a suitable price, etc." Another
thrifty native of this state who evident-
ly had few assets to realize upon or
else wanted to refute the scriptural
adage that man is as worthless as the
dust after life has left his body, made
an offer which disturbed the equanimity
of even the oft-tried office force. His
offer, however, was not to benefit the
museum but the department on the
other side of the campus, It was made
on a postal and requested that the Uni-
versity made a bid of the price it would
pay for his body. The sefretary sug-
gested that $15 be tendered on condition
that the goods be delivered immediate-
