Perfect Weal her Brings Out Big
Crowd Which Packs Grand Stand
With Sisler pitching a remarkable
brand of baseball and the Michigan
batters finding Meyers at fortunate
moments, the Varsity opened the home
baseball schedule at- Ferry field yes-
terds y afternoon by a neat, clean, 4 to
1 victory over Alma.
The home debut of the port-side
flinger who seems destined to become
the star mound artist of the Wolver-
ines was phenominal, inthat the one
safety be allowed the visiting Presby-
terians was of the scratch variety. In
addition, Sisler struck out a dozen
men and was a potent factor in the se-
curing of two of the Michigan tallies.
His three base hit in the opening
round of the engagement sent Capt.
Bell scampering across the plate with
the first run of the afternoon.
But Sisler was not alone in pitch-
ing a good article of baseball. With
the exception of the first and the
eighth frames, Meyers, Alma's crack
deceiver, did 'excellent mound duty.
In fact if Meyers had received the sup-
port he deserved, Michigan's tally to-
tal might have been smaller. The
Wolverines really had only one earn-
ed run, but scores count however they
are acquired, and incidentally Alma's
lone tally came partly as a gift
Michigan Starts Scoring Early.
Michigan did not wait long to open
the scoring. After Sisler had retired
the first three Alma batters by the
strikeout route in the opening session,.
just to show the huge crowd in at-
tendance that the man whose name
the umpire announced was doing the
mound duty, the Wolverines started
things. Or more properly Captain
Bell started after Saier and Cory had
been retired. He sent a " scorching
hit down the third base line that ca-
romed off the bag and allowed the
fleet "Joe" to reach second. The ap-
plause Sisler received when he step-
ped into the batter's box did not hoo-
doo him and he hit between left and
center for three bases, and the first
Michigan run was chalked up.
In the second Rogers hit safely, was
advanced by Baker's perfect sacrifice,

REGENTS GIVE OWN OPINIONS. TICKET SALE IS VIGOROUS.
In the April number of the Michi-
gan Alumnus there appears a sympo-
sium on faculty control of athletics
to which Regents W. H. Sawyer, J. E.!
Beal and Prof. A. H. Lloyd contribute.
Regent Beal is strongly in favor of
leaving athletic affairs as they now'
stand and cites the success of the uni-
versity's teams during the past few
years an an argument in favor of his
views. Regent Sawyer feels that
Michigan should never have left the
Conference and states that he would
ae willing to return to the Senate the
control of athletics.

an organic part of student life and
Campus Assumes Its Springtime Mien,
But Freshman Headgear Seldom
The appearance of real spring
weather, with gentle zephyrs to soothe
the brows of the feverish students, has
been marked by a profusion of vari
colored spring millinery and resplen-
dent raiment. The feminine students
have appeared on the campus decked
out in new Easter hats and bonnets
of the mode approved by the latest
reports from Paris, while the men
have been but little behind in their
spring style exhibits.
However, the only melancholy fea-
ture of the spring raiment is the lack
of little gray caps that the freshmen
are supposed to wear. In previous
years, the campus was always well
sprinkled with the emblems of verdan-
cy, but this spring the first year men
seem to display a noticeable lack of
The sight of so few grapeskins has
served to inflame the sophomores,
and some talk of reviving the old con-
fiscation day has been floating around.
While, of course, it is extremely doubt-'
ful whether this plan will be carried
out, the matter will be brought to the
attention of the student council un-
less a noticeable increase in the num-
ber of gray caps is seen.
The wearing of freshman caps is
an ancient custom of the university,
and has been observed by every class
since the idea was first introduced.
The general plan usually has been for
the verdant ones-to don the headgear
immediately after the spring recess,
and the "shyness" of the present
class is occasioning considerable com-
that they cannot logically be gov-
erned by that body detached from the
regular administration duties of the

Arrangements for the all-senior
Cane Day were practically completed
at a meeting held last evening by the
cane committees of the senior lits,
engineers, laws, and dents. The date
for the big event, the first of its kind
in the history of the university, was
set for Wednesday, March 23, weather
Contrary to the original plan,the fes-
tivities will be entirely informal, and
there will be no parade of any kind.
Instead, next Wednesday afternoon
will be a "coming out day" for all
senior canes and the fourth year men
will have a block of seats at the Var-
sity-Georgia baseball game reserved
for them. It is expected that they
will attend the contest in a body.
The celebration will continue in the
evening when the first all-senior sing
of the year will be held on the campus
about 7:00 o'clock. Instrumental mu-
sic, to be furnished by a band of stu-
dent players has also been arranged
for, but the Varsity band could not
be obtained for the occasion as it has
not been organized for the spring pro-
gram. An attempt is also being made
to have the Varsity glee club give a
concert on the campus and in all
probability the popular songsters will
take part in the program.
By holding this informal celebra-
tion to introduce Michigan's newest
"tradition," the committee in charge
expects to secure a larger turn-out
than would have been possible if a
large parade had been arranged.

Sheriffs Party,Working by Torchlight,
Finds Remains of Crandall
Short Distance Above
WATCH OF HURON'S VICTIM
STOPPED AT 7:04 O'CLOCK
Two Recovered Bodies Found in Samrt
Locality; Fear That Third is
With only one hand and arm pro-
truding from the sand in the bottom
of the Huron river, the body of A. J.
Crandall, '16, was found yesterday,
morning at 1:30 o'clock about 100
feet above the piles near the old '
Cornwell dam. The body, discovered
by a party from the sheriff's ofie,
which spent the entire night In the
search, was in a good state of pre-
ervation, despite the fact that sand
had almost completely covered it.
The'' sheriff's party was in charge
of Deputy Matt Max. They were in
three boats, one of which was carried,
to the Barton dam and went down the
river, while the other two worked up
stream from the Argo site Charles
Hearst was the ma~n who first saw
Crandall, and the other occupants of
the boat were John Elsifor and a
brother of Hearst.
Crandall's watch, which slipped
from 'a pocket as the body was lifted
to the surface, had stopped at 7:04
o'clock. The remains were taken im-
mediately to Muehlig's undertaking
establishment. Crandall's father and
brother were in the city, and the body
was taken to Brocton, N. Y., last night
at 9:30 o'clock. The body of Bacon,
which was recovered Tuesday, was
taken to Pontiac yesterday morning
The discovery of Crandall's body
leaves but one of the victims of the,
triple drowning, Miss Ella Rysdorp,
to be recovered.
Conditions for the search were ideal
when the body of Crandall was re-
covered. At 1:30 o'clock the big Bar-
ton damn shut off',the water, so that
the river was only about two, feet
deep, except in a few holes. The
search was conducted by torchlight,
and every foot of the river from the
Argo site to the scene of the tragedy
was thoroughly explored:. The water
was turned on later in the morning,
and this caused the river to rise
slightly, so that the hunt was retard-
'ed during the day. However, all the.
available boats and many canoes Were
in use during the day and last night '
the search was again continued by
