all the candidates on hand.
Following the batting drill, the coach
lined .up his infield and gave the men
a long session of fielding and base
pegging. Tward, the veteran first
sacker, was not out; and Dwyer, the
youngster on the first string, appeared
at the initial corner. His work was
close up to the standard of the older
men, and apparently favorably im-
pressed the coach.
"Tommy" Hughitt was at his old
stand on third, and although andi-
capped with a sore hand, showed all
his accustomed "pep." The veteran
combination of Baker and McQueen
around the middle sack was working
like clockwork, and with Hippler at
the plate, the gym fans were treated
to a lightning fast workout. Benton

Baer and Hippler handled the two
veterans, but the coach would not let
Baer throw any, as the latter's arm is
in bad shape. Hughitt and Davidson
are the other cripples on the squad,
both having a bad hand.

Keliher, F. Miller, and W. Schomburg;

1914 LAWS OPPOSE
For the first time in the history ofl
the law department, the graduating
class is leaving without bestowing
some sort of a memorial to that de-
partment. This drastic action was!
taken at a recent meeting of the senior
law class when it decided it would
leave no memorial to the department,1
other than the class picture.
Many suggestions were made, pro-
posing new ideas relative to the gift,
among those being an addition to the
memorial fund left last year by thef
1913 class. This fund is used to assist
self-supporting students through col-I

FOUR MEN PICKED
FOR 2-MILE RELAY
Haff, Jansen, Griest and Murphy Will
Race Big Red Men in Meet
BROWN IS SUB; TRIALS SPEEDY
Trials, held yesterday afternoon, de-
cided the makeup of the quartet that
will run against Cornell in a two mile
relay race at the Pittsburg meet Sat-
urday. Haff, Jansen, Murphy, and
Griest were the runners who made
the best times in the trials, and Brown
will be carried as a substitute.
Trainer Farrell maintained sphinx-
like silence on the exact nature of the
marks made by his half milers, and
gave out nothing except the informa-
tion that Jansen made the fastest time
of"the four. The Trainer did not seem'
to be- dissatisfied with the result, so
there is some reason to believe that
all of them clipped off the half mile]
distance at close to two minutes.
It was expected that Fox would beat
out Brown for the substitute position,
but, the veteran showed some of his
last year's form, and came back strong1
enough to cinch the fifth berth.
Brown won the first race over Lam-
ey, but according to Trainer Farrell,
made the poorest time of any of the
leaders in the other races. Jansen won
the second race, with Griest second,
and Fox third. The third and last,
race was won by Haff with Murphy

Special Geology Lecturer Called Away

the United States Geological ,Survey,

talks before the class in Geology 20,
has been suddenly called away for spe-
cial service for the government. He
will go to Louisiana to conduct.some
special work and will not return to
Ann Arbor until some time after East-
er vacation. The lectures which Mr.
Leverett has been giving for the past
two weeks will be discontinued until
organizations in the country will ren-
der several selections. The Wartburg
Verein, under the leadership of Pastor
William Hopp, has made arrangements
to come to the celebration in a body.

school of music, will give a vocal solo.

songs common to German students,and
Frank Taber, of the school of music,
will render several organ selections.
Mrs. G. A. Hastreiter, of this city, will
also give a vocal solo.
SCARCITY OF MEN
Though the time for the production
of the Joan of Arc pageant is still dis-
tant, keen interest is being shown by
those signing up on the lists as can-
didates for the cast, and Prof. H. A.
Kenyon is receiving many questions
about the pageant.
The women are turning out excep-
tionally well to try for the pageant,'
but owing to a misunderstanding of the'
time for signing the lists, the men have
been fairly slow to report. Therefore,:
the senior and junior men may both
sign up today at Prof. Kenyon's office
in the old engineering building. Soph-
