Balked yesterday by rain which kept
his men from practice, and which
promised n drill for today, Coach
Lundgren last night presented a good
imitation of pessimism when doping
out the Wolverine prospects for the
Cornell diamond clash, scheduled for
tomorr Q on Ferry field.
Aoording to the Michigan tutor, the
lthacans will furnish the stiffest kind

the Wolverine batters will be called
upon to face a mioundsman who has
been. having things all his own way,
and who has engendered a wholesome
respect in the minds tf eastern dia-
mond squads. This heaver will prob-
ably be the Cornell 'hoiee for the
heavy work against Michigan tomor-
row, and the prospect is not a bright
one for Lundgren's idle batters.
Thbe coach hs not yet decided on
his pitcher for Wednesday's game.
With the possible exception of Captain

directors of the athletic association.

the resignation of Hlarold Schradzki,

made of the available 6andidates. John

ed at this time.
DANCING CHORUSES RECEIVE
LARGE PART OF ATTENTION
Professor Kenyon Looks for Complete
Rehearsal of Pageant by
Dances are receiving the greatest at-
tention at present in the drilling of the
pageant choruses. Work has beca
steadily pushed forward, and Professor
Kenyon expects to rehearse the entire
pageant the first of next week.
The court dances have been prac-
ticed to a nicety, while the peasant
dances need a day or two more to per-
fect them. Half a hundred more men
are needed to balance the pageant cast.
Mr. E. V. Moore, instructor in the
school of music, has written one of the
songs for the pageant. It is called
"The Fairy Tree of Bourlemont," and
is intended for the children's song.
Training the main cast has not been
started in earnest as yet, because their
work must wait for thG finishing
touches on the large chorus.,
When the Chicago Symphony obches-
tra appears in Hill auditorium tomor-
row evening, as the opening attraction
of the 21st annual May festival, it will
number 70 men. This is the largest
orchestra that has ever played at a
May festival in Ann Arbor. As usual,
Mr. Stock's men will furnish a back-
ground for the event, appearing in ev-
ery concert except the organ recital
The orchestral works will cover.
a wide range, and an attempt has been
made to satisfy the varied tastes of
festival patrons. Among these works,
the D Minor Symphony (Cesar Franck),
"Till Eulenspiegel" (Strauss),- "Im-
pressios of Italy" (Charpentier), "Fire
Music" (Wagner) and selections from
"Midsummer Night's Dream" (Men-
delssohn), stand out in bold relief;
while the magnificent "Festival March
and Hymn to Liberty," by Frederick
Stock, will be welcomed, first on ac-
count of the esteem in which the com-
poser is held and, after hearing it, on
account of its exalted worth.
SOPHS MAY LOSE OBSTACLE

Small Number of 1916 Men Try Out for
Teams; Freshmen Report in
Final trials for the fresh-soph relay
obstacle teams, will be held from 1:00
to 3:30 o'clock this afternoon at the

war teams in goodly numbers yester-
day afternoon, with the result that the
necessary quota of 135 men is nearly
completed. But, as in the relay teams,
there are still many places to fill, and
freshmen who have not been on the
scales, may be weighed in this after-
noon from 4:00 to 6:00 o'clock, with
