TAR HURLERS
WILL MEET IN

4 TODAYS GAME
Sisler of Michigan Will Take Mound
Against De Silva of Syracuse
in Effort to Defeat
MIethodists.
COACH RICKEY HAS NOT YET
ANNOUNCED WHO WILL CATCH
Remainder of Michigan's Lineup Will
Be Same as Used Last
Thursday.
There ought to be a real ball game
on Ferry field this afternoon when Sis-
ler of Michigan and De Silva of Syra-
cuse hook up in a pitchers' battle.
The respective star mound artists of
the respective- teams are scheduled to
oppose each other on the hurling hill.
That in itself should be suficient to
guarantee the game as a crackerjack
exhibition. But when the Varsity ta-
es the field it will be with the sting of
Thursday's defeat still rankling in
the breasts of the players, and this
can well be taken as proof that there
will be a nice, warm reception await-
ing the Methodists on their return
from M. A. C. Incidentally, the Or-
angemen will be out for a victory in-
asmuch as another win over the Wol-
verines will mean a claim to superiori-
ty that cannot be well denied.
Just who will receive Sisler when
he takes themound is a question that
is puzzling the Michigan supporters.
As a matter of fact the solution of the
problem is not known by Coach Rick-
ey himself, or, at any rate, he has not
stated that he has the matter worked
out to his satisfaction.
On first thought it would seem that
"Chuck" Webber, the lad who has been
playing in the right garden and doing
occasional relief work behind the
stick, will be called on to step into
the breach. However, Webber is con-
sidered a regular outfielder now, and
to put him behind the plate would
mean a shift in the outfield that Coach
Rickey is doubtful about making.
If Webber does not catch, it is ex-
tremely probable that Baier will be
called upon to handle the big glove
and with it Sisler's fast ones. Baier,
who is a regular member of the squad,
has not been seen in action this sea-
son in a regular game. Baier is a fair
catcher, however, and in addition has
had experience in catching Sisler as
the two were former team-mates on a
prep school aggregation.
The real outcome of the situation
will not be known, however, until the
umpire faces the stands and announc-
es the batteries for the opposing teams.
Until that time Michigan rooters will
have to be content with speculating as
to who will act as Sisler's battery mate
in today's bloody fray.
Aside from the speculation as to the
battery men Michigan and Syracuse
will use in today's game, there seems
to be but little doubt that the two
teams will face each other with prac-
tically the same front as ap-
peared in Thursday's struggle.
An examination of Rogers' injured
right ankle has confirmed the fears
that the ankle is broken. The frac-!
ture of the fibula is a clean one, and
it is asserted that with proper care
Rogers may be in condition to work in
the Penn games which come at the
season's end. More than this can
hardly be hoped for.
The game will be called at 3:00
o'clock.

"Koepnickerstrasse 120," eleventh

ENGINEERING STUDENTS TO
TEST WATER WORKS ENGINES
A test of the efficiency of the city
water works engines at the station up
the river, will be made today by a class
of mechanical engineering department
students. As the experiment will last
about 30 hours, the class of 40 students
will work in relays, the university mo-
tor truck being pressed into service
to carry the men out and back. This
is the first time in several years that
these engines have been tested.

EIGHTH ADELPHI

VICTORYI

WILL

PLAY CORNELL ON MAY 17.

For the fourth consecutive time;
Adelphi society won the fifteenth an-
nual university Cup debate in Univer-
sity hall last night, and will keep the
trophy for the ensuing year. The de-
bate makes the eighth victory for that
society.
Contrary to the custom of previous
years, the debatQ. took place in Uni-
versity Hall, instead of the law build-
ing. An appreciative audience listen-
ed 'o the arguments pro and con, on
the question, "Resolved, that the pres-'
idential term be -extended to six years,
and the incumbent be ineligible for
re-election."
Charles C. Simmons, of Detroit, pre-
sided. Mr. Simmons 4eted in conform-
ity with the custom of having some
member of the Detroit association;
which made the cup possible, take
charge of the debate. The chairman
himself has won two debates as a rep-
resentative of Michigan, and .as an
honor member of the Northern Ora-
tprical League, in which he won a con-
test.
The judges of~the debate were, Rev-
erend G. W. Kohler, Prof. J. B. Waite,
Prof. W. P. Lombard, Charles Sink
of the School of Music~, and I. L. Sharf-
man. The decision was 4 to 1, favor-
ing the negative side of the question
which was supported by the Adelphi
(Continued on page 4).

Following weeks of practice and
eliminations Coach Lee with the as-
sistance of Captain Andrews, has se-
lected six men from whom a team of
four will be chosen to represent Mich-
igan in tennis among the eastern col-
leges within the next few weeks. Hall,
Wilson, Reindel, Holmboe, Shafroth,
and Andrews are the men chosen, and
in the coming week Coach Lde will de-
cide finally on those who are to make
the trip.
Prespects for Michigan's tennis team
are unusually bright this year, and
she sch, dule to be played a hard one.
Both the University of Pennsylvania
and Cornell are on the program, the
Ithacans being the first team to cross
rackets with the Michigan men.
The schedule for 1913 is:
Saturday, May 17.-Cornell at Itha-
ca, N. Y.
Monday, May 19.-Haverford at Hav-
erford, Pa.
