Racquet-Wielders Again Win
Tourney From Oberlin
Tennis Team.

(Special to The Michigan Daily.)
OBERLIN, 0., May 15.-Home courts
or foreign sand patches seem alike to
the Michigan tennis squad, which re-
peated its sweeping victory over
Oberlin racquet men here this
afternoon. The summaries tell
their own tale, and a repetition
of the carnage of May 5 is registered
below. The maize and blue quartette
were never within the danger zone
and led with a wide margin from the
singles to the alley game.
The pro-Michigan summaries fol-
low :
Singles-Hall, (M) won from Neal
(0), 6-3, 6-1. Andrews (M) won
from Lothrop (0), 6-2, 6-4. Thor-
ward (M) won from Griffith (0), 6-2,
6-4. Holmboe (M) won from Davis
(0), 6-2, 6-3.
Doubles-Andrews and Thorward
(M) won from Lothrop and Griffith
(0), 6-2, 6-1. Hall and Holmboe
(M) won from Neal and Hall (0),
6-1, 6-4.- Total-Michigan 6, Ober-
lin 0.
Hoosier Players Appear for Contest
But in face of Much Rain
Varsity Cancels.
If the baseball team were composed
entirely of Annette Kellermans or like
beauteous mermaids who are wont to
disport in the rolling waves, there
might have been a game yesterday.
But since they are only horny-handed,
callous mitted individuals who do not
admire nature when she weeps, an-
other contest was lost. After the
rather weak dribbling of the morning,
there was hope, but soon after the
noon repast, the oft mentioned J. Plu-
vius came to stay and would not be
driven away.
The Wabash aggregation appeared
on the field and were ready for the
fray, but the water was cold and they
withdrew gracefully. They leave here
today for M. A. C. where two games
will be played. Since Michigan plays
the Aggies on Saturday, it will at
least be possible to get a line on what
the Hoosiers might have done. The
rain checks which were issued for
last Saturday's contest, and the season
books which would have been good
yesterday, will be accepted as admis-
sion certificates at the West Virginia
game on Friday.
There would have been at least one
change in the lineup of Michigan yes-
terday had the team been able to
swim, as Weber was to be given a
chance in Roger's job at backstopping.
It may be possible that he will be us-
ed Friday.
Prof. Tilden Leaves for East.
Professor C. J. Tilden, of the engi-
neering department, left for the east
the first o the week on a tour of in-
spection *of the leading technical
schools of that section of the coun-
try. Harvard, Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, and Cornell, will be
among the universities visited by
Prof. Tilden.

Haf and Blake, JMiddle Distance Men,
Will Compete in Track
,[eet Saturday.
Haff and Blake, Michigan's middle
distance runners, who have been on
the hospital list for the past week,
will start in their respective events
in tIk Syracuse meet Saturday. This
was the ultimatum issued by Dr.
Kraenzlein last evening. Haff will
be used in the 440 yard dash, while
Blake, who is a versatile performer,
will run in the 880.
Hag is still troubled with his leg,
which went back on him a week ago
and prevented his participation in the
Varsity meet iast Saturday. If he
does not strain it- further, hqwever,
Dr. Kraenzlein is confident that Haft
will be able to start in next Saturday's
quarter. The abscess on Blake's left
temple has caused the half miler no
little inconvenience, inasmuch as he
has been obliged to submit to an op-
eration. In his case, as in that of
Haff, Dr. Kraenzlein states that he
believes Blake will be in condition to
start the half mile.
A long list of entries from Syracuse
has been received at the office of the
Athletic Association, headed by Cap-
tain Reidpath, the star quarter miler
and 220 yard dash man. Champlin, a
veteran .of the Syracuse track team
will also be on the job to contest in
the hurdles, broad jump and weight
events. These two men will probably
be Syracuse's most consistent point
winners, but. there are other men on
the list of entries who are sure to give
the Wolverine athletes some compe-
tiion .
Rain prevented the Michigan candi-
dates from holding a successful work-
out yesterday afternoon, but if the
weather is fair ,today, Dr. Kraenzlein
will probably put them through their
paces. A light workout is all that the
men will get Friday, and then the
Wolverine track team will be ready
to entertain the Orange athletes on
Ferry field Saturday afternoon.
Freshmen are Urged to Turn Out.
While the final arrangements have
not yet been completed, the track meet
between a Michigan All-Fresh team
and the Ann Arbor high school ath-
letes has been practically arranged
for June 1. In view of this fact, all
freshmen track athletes are urged to
turn out for practice.
Only a few Of the first year me
have remained faithful during the out--
door season, and the lack of interest
on the part of the freshmen is to be
deplored inasmuch as the athletic au-
thorities have been endeavoring to ar-
range a meet for them practically ever
since the outdoor season opened. Dr.
Kraenzlein is prepared to give the
freshmen the proper amount of atten-
tion and they are urged to report to
him at Ferry field.
Architectural Society Elects Officers.
At a regular meeting of the Archi-
tectural society last evening, the fol-
lowing officers were elected for the
ensuing year: president, Barton D.
Wood, '13 E; vice-president, Herman
Trum, '14 E; secretary, Malcolm Si-
mons, '14 E; treasurer, W. G. Sprague,
'15 E; directors; Fred Klein, '13 E;
Russell Allen, '14 E, and H. S. Estler,

Old Bucks Hold Annual Ropeain
der Traditional Oak; One
Captive Absent.


Listen to this song and story, Le-
gend of the Michigamuas. In the ear-
ly moon of green leaves, Michigamua
donned their feathers; Got their tom- NI:
ahawks and war paint, Danced the 9
war dance of their fathers, On the T
campus of old Michigan. Hit the trail
round Prexy Angell's, Up to Michi-
gamua's oak tree; Under which stood AL
weak and trembling, Nine of Michi-
gamua's captives. One was missing- Ed
his misfortune. He lay sick in pale-
face tepee. Michigamua roped her
captives, Took them over muddy trails
Leading to the old time wigwam. H
There the captives proved their merit,
Flinched not under many tortures. So
they sat among the warriors, Ate Ann
around the glowing campfire, Heard in
the many words of wisdom; Smoked tron
the peace pipe with the warriors, So tra,
came into.Michigamua. tle,
The ten initiates were Philip Fletch- eni:

For the first time "in the memory of
man" the University Calendar has
been published on time. The first
copies were finished and delivered by
the Ann Arbor Press yesterday. .Here-
tofore the calendar has been published
by firms in larger cities where the fa-
cilities are considered better, and has
always been from a week to two
months late. Practically the same
features are included in this
year's bulletin as have ap-
peared in past issues. How-
ever, a new addition to the cal-
endar is a list of the accredited sec-
ondary schools from which students
are admitted on diploma to the univer-
A comparison of the detailed sta-
tistics which appear in the 1912 cal-
endar, with those in the 1911 edition,
reveals the fact that the increase of
201 students in the enrollment of the
university is mostly due to the liter-
ary department. There are 234 more
literary students this year than last,
and it is the losses in the other de-
partments that reduce the total gain.
The largest loss, of 23, is in the medi-
cal department.
In the engineering department 1,292
students are enrolled, an increase
over last year of six. The law depart-
ment with a gain of a solitary stude,'
totals 793. The pharmic and dental
departments both lost, the former
