the strain and by the time the, las
Colonel- had done the shuffle there was
nobody left but the score keepers in
the press stand who were subsisting on
half-ration peanuts and calling for
lights. The southern gentlemen did
the best they knew how to hustle the
game along, 20 of them whiffing and
only one reaching second, but the Wol-
verines found something soft in Wood-
son and fattened up their averages in
great style. When the shades of night
drew their soft curtain o'er the battle
field the score was 13 to nothing.
For the first portion of the game Mr.
Sisler occupied the entire center of the
stage for the first five innings. This
port side deceiver decided that a team
was an unnecessary appendage and
hence proceeded to make 15 put outs
in five innings, not asking his co-labor-
ers for any assistance. Fourteen of
the Colonels came to bat, smiled feeb-
ly. swung gently three times, and hik-
ed Lack to the quiet bench, proving
their southern breeding. The other
victim, a rough person, hit one to Sis-
ler who likewise gently touched him

inings was how many balls would be
thrown in one inning, and low calcu-
In the wings of the stage were two
able assistants of Mr. Sisler in the
shape of Messrs Pontius and Bell.

ering a lioem, this pair each garnered

baker's dozen of tally slips that Rick-
:y is collecting. It was only in the last
nning that "Brute" failed to connect
and then he didn't have the heart to
abuse the confidence of the tr-usting
Mr. Woodson .with his plate splitters.
Sisler flashed once in the ballet of hit-
ters, driving out a home run just tb get
out the kinks and Mr. Baker also made
a hurried trip around the sacks with-
out a stopover. Sixteen hits were
harvested before 24 had succumbed,
and Rickey had caused several accom-
panied score keepers irate frenzy by
sending in a half dozen substitutes.
After Sisler had cowed the Colonels
into gentle slumber and the strike out
habit, Quaintance took up the burden
and held them scoreless although
yielding three delayers. He fanned
six and held them safe at all times, the
visitors getting eie man to second]
where he died unnoticed in the gather-i
ing dusk. Taken all in all the south-
erners were not a particularly impos-
ing ball club. Whatever may.be their
reputation in the land of rye and hors-
es, they looked like a Friday night only
tenor at the May Festival when stack-
ed up against Michigan. A total of nine
misplays were chalked up against them
and only one really good play marked
their work. They were simply out-
classed and Michigan scored at will
after the first three innings.
In the fourth inning the procession
started when four hits, two of them
bacon getters for four sacks, brought
in five runs. In the fifth, three hits
mixed with five errors counted four

Campaigning in the election for

PLAN TO ENTERTAIN
Relay Races and Fimal Interclass
Baseball Game to Be Staged
VISITORS WILL GET ALTO RIDE.
Because of the calling off of'the dual
meet between the Wolverines and Cal-
ifornia track men, which was to have
taken place on the morning of May 24,
the second day of the interscholastic,
it is probable that the high school ath-
letes will be entertained by a series
of relays between teams picked from
the Varsity track squad, and the final
game of the interclass baseball series.
Among the other features of the en-
tertainment which is being tentatively
planned for the prep school stars, are
automobile rides either Friday after-
noon or Saturday and an interscholas-
tic dinner on Saturday night follow-
ing the meet, at which time the star
point-winners may be awarded the
medals and trophies won.
There will be a meeting of all try-
outs for the office of interscholastic
manager tonight at 8:00 o'clock at
the athletic association. The new sys-
tem of tryouts for Varsity manager-
ships does not apply to candidates for
the interscholastic position. The three
men who do- the best work between
now and just before the meet will be
appointed on the interscholastic com-
mittee and those chosen will do the
bulk of the work for the big event.

forming it into an open air amphithe-
Attention was called to the unsani-

night, and the increase of mosquitoes
in the city during the past summers
has made it necessary for the commit-
