Three Canoeists Lost in Huron Two
Weeks Ago at Edison lDam
Still Elude All
f yn-imite Was Used Without Success


With a grand little team percent-
age of .325, and six Michigan players
hitting the ball at a .400 clip and bet-
ter, the averages of the Varsity base-
ball team on its jaunt into the south-
land prove a mighty interesting set of
figures. If this standard of stick
work continues throughout the sea-
son, there will be no need of com-
plaint on the ground that the Varsity
harbors a poor bunch of stickers.
Of the six men who hit .400 and
better, five of the players participated
in every game played. McQueen who
leads off the list of heavy hitters, made
five safeties in nine times at bat, for
an average of .555. As McQueen did
not. play regularly, however, the real
honor of leading swat artist falls on
the broad shoulders of Catcher "Pud"
Rogers. Michigan's backstop did yeo-
man work with the hickory with an
enviable mark of .526.
Next to Rogers in the hitting order
comes Sisler, pitcher and outfielder.
This remarkable box artist who is so
valuable to the team that he is used in
the outfield when not on mound duty,,
banged the ball at an average of .464,
withf Rogers and Sisler hitting at the
topr of the list, Michigan has a unique
duo, as it is seldom that a star battery
is also a star pair of willow wielders.
Followimg Sisler come Lavans, Bell
and Baribeau in order. Lavans hit .409
while Captain Bell and Baribea con-
nected for an average of an even .400.
While the first six men hit remarkably
well, a considerable break in the di-
minishing ratio of hitting follows.
Cory the next in order hit for .272 and
the performance of the remainder of
the team was in nowise startling. The
work of the six leading artists brings
up the club hitting to a good average,
however, and so there seems little
cause for complaint.
In the fielding line four men came+
through the trip with perfect percent-
ages. Sheehy, Gory, McQueen and
Duncanson, none of whom played the.
entire series of games., were the men
who have no errors chalked up against

Alumni of Windy City Send Delegate
to Ann Arbor to Negotiate
Trip Proposed For
Next Month.
Faculty Preliously Has . Approved
Ietroit Trip, But Plans
Were Upset.

Civc Association Begins Plans For
Larger Quarters to Accommodate
1,000 Students.
Plans are tow under way to con-
struct a new building to house the
University School of Music with ac-
commodations for 1,000 students and
five teaching and practicing studios.
At the annual meeting of the Ann
Arbor civic association last weekp
Prof. E. C. Goddard,, of the law de-
partment, was appointed chairman of
a committee to look into the matter of
the- new building, and to cooperate
with the University Musical society.
The present quarters of the school
on Maynard street and the annex,
have ceased to be adequate. In the
comparatively brief existence of the
school it has had a remarkable
growth, having an enrollment for the
present year of more than 500 and a
faculty of 30. It has also come to be
recognized as one of the most im-
portant and widely known institutions
of its sort.
The present building was built 20
years ago by the School of Music
building association, a stock company
organized for the purpose. The mon-
ey was furnished by various people in
exchange for stock, but they were
practically contributions as no div-
idends were to be paid. At the pres-
ent time more than two-thirds of the
stock has been surrendered, but in
order to use the building as an asset;
it will be necessary to get the permis-
sion of the other original stock hold-
ers or their heirs.
As soon as the stock is obtained
the committee will select a site and
formulate plans for the building.
Miss Polly Wheeler, '14, 204 N. State
street, died at a hospital in Philadel-
phia on April 5 from typhoid fever
after a week's illness. Miss Wheeler
was visiting a sister when she was
suddenly taken with the illness that
resulted in her death. The funeral
services were held at the family home
on Wednesday.
Miss Wheeler was compelled by ill
health to give up her scholastic work
at the end of her sophomore year, but
she still retained her interest and ac-
tivity in many campus activities, espe-
cially the Y. W. C. A. and the Wom-
en's league.
She was well known and popular
with her classmates, not so much due
to her social activities as to her re-
markable character. Her unselfish-
ness and whole heartedness won for
her many friends who were severely
shocked by the news of her sudden

Michigan alumni in Chicago, acting
through S. E. Thomason, '04, have in-
vited the Union to present "Contrarie
Mary" in Chicago during May. The
Senate Council will be asked for per-
mission to accept the invitation at a
meeting this week at which the mat-
ter will probably be taken up. The
privilege of going to Detroit was
granted earlier in the year, but plans
miscarried and the trip was given up.
The Chicago Alumni association
held a banquet on April 2 attended ty
522 alumni at which time a commit-
tee was appointed to invite the opera
to come to Chicago. In view of this
action Mr. Thomason came to Ann Ar-
bor last week and presented the for-
mal invitation. Should arrangements
go through this will be the first time
a Union opera has been presented
outside of Ann Arbor.
It is not known here w"hat business
arrangements have been made for the
presentation but it is likely that the
trip will be self supporting. The date
will probably be sometime in the mid-
dle of May and the show will take
place in the Illinois theater.
There are 125, people connected with
'Contrarie Mary," in various capaci-
ties as members of the cast and com-
mittees. The matter of taking care
of so large a company presents a big
problem and it could not be learned
whether the plans are to take every-
body or not. The Union owns all the
scenery and costumes needed for the
show, which makes the arrangements
in this particular comparatively sim-
ple. The minimum of local atmos-
phere about this year's opera increas-
es, to a great extent, its worth for
outside production.
The fact that over 500 alumni were
enthusiastic about- bringing the opera
to Chicago practically insures it plen-
ty of support, if plans should carry
for taking the trip. Whether or not it
becomes a reality depends upon the
decision of the Senate Council.
Prof. C. L. de Muralt finished first
in the Michigan preliminaries to the
National fencing championship held
yesterday afternoon. , Professors R.
Talauion and S. W. Lockwood tied for
second place in the foil. The duelling
sword contest was won by Paul Reig-
hard with Professor de Muralt second
and Hayden third.
Professor de Mu'ralt will represent
the Michigan Division in the National
championships next Thursday and
Friday in New York City. This tour-
nament also decided the Michigan
state championship in foil and duel-
ling sword. There were no out of
town entries. *The sabre contest will
be held later.

as the suggestion of some one outside
the board, I believe. The general sen-
timent of the board seemed to be that
the matter was not strictly within the
field of the Union."
Howard Wilson, '13, acting presi-
dent of the Union, stated that the pro-
posal was layed aside owing to the
press of other matters, and would
probably not again be considered until
after the opera business was com-
plet'ed. "The question of class toques
and freshman caps also came before
the student council," he said, "but
principally in another form. The
problem of defining who was entitled
to wear the different toques, and the
selection of departmental colors was
the principal one. I believe that the
different plans could be profitably dis-
cussed by the council."
The storekeepers brand the toque
business as a nuisance, and are more
than willing that the students take
charge of it. The merchants declare
that it is impossible to prevent the
sale of toques to school children un-
der the present promiscuous handling
by whoever cares to lay in a stock.

Mrs. H. C. Hutchins, wife of the son
of President H. B. Hutchins, died last

ident Hutchins went east about a week
ago, when she was in a critical con-
The funeral was held yesterday and'

today, but Mrs. Hutchins and Miss,

some time.
Hugh Chalmers to Speak Tonight
Hugh Chalmers, president of. the.
Chalmers Motor Car company of De-?
troit, will address the members of the
Commerce club at the Union tonight
at 7:30 o'clock. The subject of his
talk will be "Selling and Advertising."'

The senate passed the bill propos-
ing a constitutional amendment that
will permit students away from home
to vote, almost without discussion or
opposition.. Before being passed,
however, it was amended to also in-
clude members of the legislature.
The amendment was designed to
benefit those members of the legisla-
ture from the upper peninsula who
are unable to get home to vote. It
provides that a constitutional amend-
ment shall be submitted to the people
in 1914.
