"Doc" Baribeau, dean of the Michi-
gan hurling staff who was scheduled
to pitch today's game against Cornell,
is again .temporarily lost to the Varsity
squad. The sudden death of his grand-
father summoned Baribeau to his home
in Grand Ledge last evening. On the
eve of the southern trip his wife's ill-
ness prevented Baribea from going
south with the team.
The absence of Baribeau makes to-
day's gamhe-an even more critical test
for the Varsity. With a record of but
one defeat in 114 intercollegiate con-
tests and a row of nine straight wins
behind them, the Varsity today faces
the ,stroug Cornell team in the last
contest before the eastern trip.
With the exception of the Syracuse
game Saturday, the Varsity has not
been on the field since last Wednesday,
the rainy weather preventing the prac-
tice drills. 'The fielding and batting
slump of the team in the game against
the Orange is credited to the lack of
regular work, and if this is true the
nine should be in even poorer condi-
Lundgren refuses to accept this pes-
simistic prophecy, however, affirming
that his men will put up a strong front.
Quaintance, Ferguson or Davidson will
hurl for Michigan, and the rest of the
lineup will be the same as has been
used in the other games. -
The reports published in the state
press to the effect that Captain Sis-
le'r's arm is troubling him and that he
had gone to. consult "Bonesetter"
Reese this week end are branded by
coach and captain as absolute false-
hoods, without the slightest founda-
"Sisler's arm is in as good shape as
it ever was," said Lundgreu last night,
"and it is not at all improbable that
George will appear in the lineup to-
morrow, probably in the outfield."
Regan will probably hurl for Cor-
nell, and according to the advance no-
tices is a star. Princeton, Columbia,
Tufts, Bucknell and Lafayette have all
been humbled by the Ithacans, and Re-
gan Is credited with 21 strikeouts in
the 17 inning game with Lafayette ear-
ly this year.
A feature of today's game will be the
appearance of the seniors seated in a
body, following the swing out exercis-
es. 'A section of seats will be set aside
for the near-grads who appear in their
caps and gowns.

MEN BY PETITIONS'
Freshmen from all departments will
assemble at 7:00 o'clock tonight, in
the west physics lecture room, for
the first big mass meeting of the
spring, to create "pep" for the clashes
with the sophomores on Friday after-
noon and Saturday morning. Details
of the methods of attack in the con-
tests will be outlined by the leaders,
and men, prominent in campus affairs,
will give short talks. Sophomores will
meet tomorrow night for the same
purpose, at the same time and place.
Final relay obstacle race trials which
were scheduled for yesterday after-
noon, were again postponed because of
the unkindness of the weatherman. As
a result, the number of tryouts still
remains, 55 freshmen and 10 sopho-
mores. At least 38 more second year
men are needed, and opportunity will,
be given to both classes from 1:00 to
