Sisler Plays in Left Field and Makes
Sensational Diving Catch
Fast fielding and effective pitching
held Cornell at bay yesterday,while the
Wolverines regained their hitting
stride, and won a 3 to 0 victory from
the visitors for the eleventh straight
win and the seventh shut-out decision
of the season.
The Varsity, despite the lack of prac-
tice this week, came back in decisive
fashion, recovering from their slight
slump on Saturday and playing un-
beatable ball in the last home contest
before the eastern trip. The Wolver-
Ines found Regan for 11 safe clouts,
touching up the Cornell star in every
roend except the second and seventh.
Only his excellent control and habit
of tightening with men on the bases
kept the score down.
"Ack" Quaintance, Lundgren's pitch-
ing selection in the absence of.Bar-
beau, must have got wind of the fact
that Frank Navin, owner of the De-
troit Tigers, was in the stands. The
smiler threw one of the best games of
his college career, holding Cornell to
three scattered hits, two of which were

When the doors are thrown open at
8:00 o'clock this morning for the see-
ond annual engineering exhibit, the
public will be admitted to a series of
displays more varied and numerous
than any attempted by any department
in the history of the university. The
past two days have been spent in per-
fecting the individual displays, and all
are in readiness for the thousands of
visitors who are expected to go
through the buildings.
Work was finished yesterday on the
miniature railway prepared by the
electrical engineers, and the engine
will make regular trips this morning,
drawing a trailer which will carry sev-
en passengers. The automatic sema-
phore has been wired and is in work-
ing order. Power for the engine and
signals will be furnished by a gasoline
generator which has been placed be-
side the tracks.
The films for the motion pictures on
highway construction, which will be
displayed .by the civil engineers, have
arrived, and will be shown continu-
ously during the exhibit. Actual cross-
sections of seven models of different
kinds of road, working models of all
road-making machinery, a five foot re-
inforced concrete bridge, and displays
of different road materials, will also
be features of the highway exhibit.
An 18 story model of the New York
Chamber building, showing all the
details of construction, will be shown
~by the civilkengineers. -Over $100 was
spent for the solde'r alone to complete
this model. Other features of the civ-
il's exhibit will be a slow sand filter,
in actual operation, a model harbor,
complete- in every detail, even to fan-
created waves, and a model of the reg-
ulating works for a canal.
The glider of the Michigan Aero
club has been carried out beside the
engineering building and will be on
display throughout the exhibit.
Among the interesting features of
the physics exhibition, in connection
with the electrical department, will be
a singing arc lamp, an Ive's color lan-
tern, the creaion of low and high vac-
uum effects, and the discharge of elec-
tricity through gas.
Small M's will be cast for all visitors
at the miniature blast furnace in the
foundry building, and other novelties
will feature the exhibit.

teams were posted yesterday afternoon
in University hall. The successful can-
didates for the soph tug-of-war teams,
and all the relay teams will be posted
on the bulletin boards of University
hall, the engineering building and the
gymnasium this afternoon.
The first tug-of-war event is sched-
uled for 4:15 o'clock tomorrow across
the Huron river, just west of the Mich-
igan Central station. The lightweights
will pull first, and will be followed by
the middle and heavyweights. The
bafiks for the respective sides have not
yet been chosen.
Fresh lits elected Harry L. Calvin to
captain the heavyweight tug-of-war
team, Walter DeLano to lead the mid-
dleweight tug-of-war, and John Codd
to direct the first relay team. Fresh
engineers elected M.W. Paterson light-
weight tug-of-war captain, P. J. Grif-
fen pushball captain, and H. L. Car-
