Visitors Loomed up Strong in Early
Innings; Remainder of
In Central American countries mo-
notonies bring revolutions. In the
temperate zone it is supposed to bring
nothing but socialism but there is a
chance of conditions being reversed
here. Patient fans gathered at the
field yesterday with great hopes of
seeing a ball game and drawn there
by the colored rumors of a strong mys-
terious team from a college named
after some revolutionary sluggers. Pa-
tient fans departed from the field last
night murmuring softly and remark-
ing on the slump in the heroes' ability
since the days of '76. Suffice it to say
another victory was chalked up for
Michigan and the usual large number
of errors counted on the mysterious
visitors. The count was 9 to 2.
Among the amused spectators and
patient victory-doped fans was T. Ray-
inond Cobb., erstwhile of the hold-out
league, and now engaged in enticing
elusive dollars into the Detroit club
box office. The Georgia nectarine hid
in the Michigan dug-out and handed
out a few tips to the embryos while
watching several prospects, mostly
Michigan, trot around the bases. After
the contest Mr. Cobb, being diplomat-
ic if nothing else, refrained from mak-
ing any statement and even looked
blank when asked about the game.
The first inning of the game was
good and several fans perked up.
enough to wager a few pennies on the
outcome. The rest of the game was
the usual stunt, all Michigan wanted,
nothing stirring for the Patriots.
Quaintance did the heavy work for
the Wolverines and he showed a lot
of stuff, pitching a very pretty game
and getting out of a couple of holes in
creditable style. He went the whole,
route without any signs of distress
and scattered his half dozen hits in big,
league style. One Greenway started
to hurl for the visitors and did well;
the first inning. The next two inningsa
he was bumped for six runs and re-
tired in favor of a pinch hitter, who
whiffed. Haymaker took up the the
burden, which was some burdeif too,;
and worked along in a hopeless sort of
a way. He was touched for three

Many changes in rules and rcula-

were made by the student council at
its mooting last night. George C. Pat-

pushball contests and will be assisted]
by Captain Hlarold Hai, '13, of the]
Varsity track team and Captain Jos-

Changes in rules for the tugs-of-war
which will start at 3:30 p. in. are as
follows. For the first tug, the sides
of the bank will be decided by a fip of
a coin and for the second tug, the
classes will change sides. For the
third, the heavyweight tug, a coin toss
will again decide the banks of the riv-
er to be occupied by different sides.
No hole are to be dug before the crack
of the referee's pistol and later only
with the heels. Contestants violating
this rule may be taken out of line and
no substitute used. After the refer-
ee's pistol the teams must tug contin-
uously until, one side is pulled into
the river, no rest will be allowed be-
In the pushball contest, no handicap
is to be given either side as was the
case in previous years and the side
which has the most number of goals
or is occupying the other's territory at
the end of the allotted time will be
declared the winner. Instead of five
feet as in the past both sides will start
three feet from the ball.
The only officials for the contests
will be councilmen and ex-councilmen,
and the wearers of the "M" will not be
included as in the past. There are
seven leaders from the sophs and
freshmen to be chosen for the relays,
tugs-of-war and pushball contests.

SISLER LEADS III
Sophomore Phenom Has 63 Strike Outs
in 38 Innings; Others Have
BATTING QUARTET IS STRONG,:
Working i9. 38 innings, George Sis-
ler, Michigan's sensational south paw,
has allowed only nine safeties to be
garnered off his delivery. He is debit-
ed with one wild pitch, seven passes,
and with hitting four batsmen, while
the credit side of his account is replete
with 63 strikeouts. Baribeau, upon
whom the lion's share of the flinging
work has fallen, has a record of 29
hits in 45 innings, no wild pitches, has
hit one batsman, given five first bases
on balls,, and fanned 38. Quaintance,
performing the slab duty in 35 innings,
has been hit for 32 safe bingles, made
one wild pitch, has issued five free
tickets to first on balls, has hit no
batsmen, and has struck out 32.
Statistics show Sisler to be in the
van in hitting for extra bases, and in
ability to pilfer the sacks. This ver-
satile player has made the complete
circuit of the bases three times, and
has three triples chalked in his favor.
In addition he is the chief run-getter
for the Wolverines with 22 tallies.
Capt. Bell has earned two home runs,
one three bagger and a double, has
equalled Sisler in the stealing of bas-
es, and has crossed the rubber for 20
markers. Rogers ranks with his bat-

Died Yesterday From Ptomaine
Poisoning After Eating
FELL AT BOTTOM OF STAIRS
IN A STATE OF DELIRIUM.
Cafe Proprietress Buys Xeat From
Chicago; Local Hamburgers
Alfred J. Brummeler, '14, died early
yesterday morning at his rooming
house at 804 Monroe St., from pto-
maine poisoning, believed to haw'e been
caused by hamburger steak, which he
had eaten Monday noon. His father,
summoned by telepgraph from Grand
Rapids late Monday evening, failed in
his race with death, by several hours.
Following luncheon Monday, at
which he ate heartily of hamburger
steak, Brummeler went to a 1:00
o'clock class. Illness forced him to
leave the class and return to
his room. There were no oth-
er students in the house at the time,
and the landlady heard him talking
and walking about in the room, but
thinking that he was merely prepar-
ing a lesson she paid no heed to the
disturbance. About 2:30, hearing a
crash in the hallway, she discovered
Brummeler where he had fallen at the
foot of the stairs in an effort to reach
the telephone, and in delirium.
Dr. C. Georg, Jr., of the medical de-
partment, was immediately summoned
by Mrs. E. A. Roark, the landlady.
When the doctor arrived Brummeler
regained consciousness for a short
time, and told the physician that the
hamburger steak had tasted funny and
he thought that was the cause of his
illness. Shortly after he again lost
consciousness. Although a nurse was
called, and the doctor worked contin-
ually over the young man, they were
unable to save him and the end came
at 2:15 o'clock. F. W. Brummeler, '16,
the dousin and room mate of the de-
ceased, accompanied the father with
the body to Grand Rapids yesterday
As no autopsy was performed, it
cannot be learned for certain whether
or not the hamburger was infected.
However, Brummeler's cousin stated
that they had not eaten anywhere else
than at the cafe where they boarded.

The proprietress stated last night that
no other boarders had been effected,
and she could not possibly believe that
the death was caused by the hamburg-
er. However, Dr. Georg said that this
would not prove that Brummeler had
not been poisoned by the hamburger,
as a case of ptomaine poisoning oc-
curred here recently where only one
member of a family was stricken,, al-
though every member of :the family
partook of infected salmon.
The cafe buys its meats directly
from Chicago, and grinds its own ham-
burgers. "The reason for this," stat-
ed the proprietress, "is because I am
afraid to feed my boarders. the ham-
burg that is sold here. I bought ham-
burg steak here last fall that was so
putrid with preservatives that it could
not be eaten."
