This may be said without the slight-

intense and cramping pain caused by
appendicitis, the lanky twirler got up
from a sick bed and pitched eight long
innings in an effort to defeat the
Princeton team. And he pitched the

SOPHS SELECT BAY FOR OUTING.
Second-Year Men Will Hold Frolic on
June 1, as Planned.
Put-in-Bay for the sophs on June 1
seems to be a certainty now, as bal-
loting and general sophomoric opinion
tends to show a popular approval of
this plan. The engineers are especi-
ally active in their expressions of sat-
isfaction over the proposed trip to the
bay, and recent glimpses in the lit bal-
lot boxes show that the west-campus
men are not far behind in their desire
for the- picnic.
An announcement of rates for the
trip will appear soon in The Michigan

Most men, when they feel the first
symptoms of this dread disease, are
more than content to seek the shelter
of a hospital. They would not think of
walking around, let alone making any
greater exertion. But Smith, with the
love of Michigan and the spirit of loy-
alty to his team at heart, got up from
his sick bed and pitched eight long,
gruelling innings for Michigan.
Hats off to the man. In him is best
exemplified what we like to call "Mich-
igan spirit." Most of us never see
such exhibitions as that of "Smi's" and
probably cannot conceive of the sacri-
fice he made. At the very evident risk
of his life, he rose above the occasion
and gave to his college every ounce
of strength he posessed. Only when
absolutely exhausted could he be pre-
vailed upon to stop, and then, several
men had to carry him off of the field.
The thanks of the entire student
body are due Michigan's hero, and ev-

als, ought in some measure to express

Declaring that "doing nothing" ex-
presses Michigan's position on the
question of timber conservation, Prof.
Filibert Roth, in a recent talk at Lan-
sing, said that if all the trees which
had. been planted in Michigan were
mature, they would not keep the saw
mills of the state busy two hours.
According to the M. A. C. "Holcad,"
Prof. Roth continued:
"We have never had a governor
who cared a rap about our future. We
have never had a legislature which
had even the smallest minority which
cared about conservation. We have
never had a United States Con-
gress that had even a decent minority
interested in this big problem,-the
problem of saving from total destruc-
tion the second greatest resource of.
"These," he said, "are some of the
reasonswhy nothing is being done.
There are some places where steps
have been taken toward conservation,
but in comparison to the devasta-
tion, it amounts to almost nothing."
