Junior laws and Soph Engineers Will
Close Interclass Baseball
Season Today; Teams
in Fine Shape.
Both Contenders Hold Laurels in Their
Respecth ;)1parinents; have
Heavy h itter
When the junior laws and the soph
engineers meet on the Varsity base-
ball diamond this afternoon at 4:00
o'clock, the interclass series will close
one of the most successful seasons
that it has had since its establishment.
The winners of this contest will be the
campus champions, and will be re-
warded with numeral sweaters and
The two teams, who by winning all
their contests, have won their right
to fight. it out for the big
honor, are both strong aggrega-
tions and the result is hard to predict.
The junior barristers had little trouble
in downing the other classes in their
department and won from the cham-
pions of the. literary department in a
close contest by some timely hitting.
In the engineering department the
honor was also easy for last year

the fresh medic game.

of the engineers to do the serving act.
and Spencer will twirl for the lawyers,
Both box artists have been working in+
rare form this season, and if dope can
be relied upon the fans will see a
strong pitchers' battle this afternoon.
Lackey and Shepard are scheduled to7
do the backstop work.
In the slugging line the two teamsj
look about on a par, both having somea
real Cobb-like batsmen. Every game
that the contenders for the champion-1
ship have played has been featured byI
the extra base hits which have been
garnered off the opposing twirlers.
Shepard and laddon are the two menf
on the engineer's nine who are beingl
depended upon to give the most troub-
le to Spencer, while Lehr, Hippler,t
and Witherow are the trio of laws who
will be the terror of Iladdon.1
The probable lineups that will be'
used today by the opposing teams arE

After a slight illness lasting a week,
which had been diagnosed as a case of
grip, J. N. Beardslee, '13L, attended
classes again Wednesday. He became
slightly worse, and the attending phy-
sician called the case a slight attack
of smallpox.
The house was quarantitned at once,
and four other students, R.L. Emmons,
'15, L. H. Murphy, '13, Helen Webb,
'15, and Marie Boos, '15, living in the
house, were also quarantined.
Juniors Are Picked as Winners, With
Seniors Close on Their Heels;
Sophs to Trail.
Adhering to the prece(rent set last
winter when the indoor Varsity meet
was made an interclass struggle, the
Varsity outdoor meet on Ferrytfield
Saturday morning will be contested
among the four classes with the jun-
iors heavy favorites for first honors
A close fight is sure to develophbe-
tweea the fresh and senior athletic
talent for second position, while the
sophomores may be forced to content
themselves with the booby prize.
The junior's chances for pre-eminence
in tomorrow's meet is based on the
presence of such men as Bond, Sew-
ard, Jansen, Brown, - Green, Craig,
Kohler, and Cook. Bond and Seward
should make a sweep in the dashes.
Jansen cannot be headed in the 440,
and Kohler should garner 15 points
from the three weight events. Green
is picked to win the high hurdles and
Craig will of course lead the field in
Lhe lows. Brown is sure of points in
the half-mile and Cook will press
Oaskam of the sophomore class fox
first in the polevault.
Led off by Haff, and supported by
Lapsley, C. M. Smith, H. Smith and
Sai rgent, the seniors will be in the
running in every event with the excep-
tion of the hurdles. Haff will proba-
bly be entered in the halt-mile.
The freshmen will be represented in
the hurdles by Armstrong and Klop-
fer, in the dashes by H. L. Smith and
Lyttle, and by Catlett in pole-vault.'
With the points that their other entries
may pick up, this class appears to be
strong. Daskam is the only sopho-
more who seems sure to place, and
will work hard to spare his class the
shame of being goose-egged in the

I 1


After a lapse of one year, the An-
nual Michigan Interscholastic meet
will blossom forth with its full crop
of embryo Varsity material and high
school marvels at Ferry field this af-
ternoon. It is the fifteenth year that
Ferry field and Ann Arbor has wel-
comed the middle west youngsters and
it is no idle statement to predict that
this year will not be below the aver-
age of its predecessors and it might
be permissible to remark that there
is every chance of its being better. For
two days the track men will compete at
the field and be entertained by Ann
Arbor and it will be late. Saturday
night before the last of the festivities
is over.
The entry list for the meet in itself
insures some keen competition. Nearly
250 cinder burners and weight heav-
ers are listed among those who will
display their prowess and the entries
come from three or four of the middle
west states. The largest' entry list is
Lansing with twenty, while Kalama-
zoo, with a single, brings up the rear.
The entering of University High of
Chicago will mean that the Michigan
schools will have their work cut out
for them to keep the honor in the state
and Toledo will also add to their
troubles. Of course it is impossible to
attempt to pick any favorites, wut,
judging by some of the marks that the
men are bringing with them, there is
a good probability that Saturday night
may see a few records broken.
The entertainment will start for the
high' school men this morning when
they are to be driven around the city
in automobiles. At 2:30 o'clock this
afternoon, the first events will be call-
ed in both track and field events. Most
of the track events today will be qual-
ifying heats, but the competition will
be none the less keen. The field events
will be finals, so by tonight one or
two schools may have a substantial
lead on their rivals. The finals in all
the track events will come Saturday
The track events slated for this af-
ternoon are: first and second heats of
the 100 yard dash; qualifying heats in
the high and low hurdles; qualifying
heats in the 220 and 440 dashes; and
qualifying heats in the half mile. The
field events, which will be finals are:
pole vault, shot put, discus throw,,
hammer throw, broad jump and high
jump. k'

Cal) Night Celebration Planned to Be
More Impressive Than Ever;
Program Begins at
5:00) O'clock
Mandolin Club Will Furnish Musical
Selections in Place of
Varsity Band.
About a great bonfire tonight at
Sleepy Hollow, men of the class of
1916 will beat a spiral war dance into
the realms of sophomorehQod and
throw their little emblems of verdan-
cy into the flames. The 1913 Cap
Night celebration is planned to be the
most impressive demonstration ever
staged at Palmer field.
The parade will start at 7:45 o'clock,
headed by the seniors, and the other
classes will fall in line in oIder, fresh-
men corfiing last. The band was una-
ble to organize for the occasion. The
procession will march north on State
street to Huron street and then east
to Sleepy Hollow. The entire way
will be lighted by red torches, manag-
ed by a committee of sophomores to
be picked when the class gathers to-
After arriving, seniors will sit on the
hillside to the right of the bonfire,
with the juniors at their left. Sopho-
mores and freshmen will be seated in
front of the upperclasses, freshmen
nearest the fire. There will be a short
program of speeches, and music will
be furnished by the mandolin club.
Following the program freshmen
will circle the fire in a single spiral
line, tossing the gray head-pieces into
the flames. Ex-freshmen will then
withdraw to the south, and seniors
will lead the procession back to State
street, 1916 men falling into line last.
The new sophomores will be granted a
free show at the Majestic.
During the entire performance ev-
eryone is requested to keep off the
women's hockey field.
Councilmen in charge of the celebra-
tion are Harold S. Hulbert, '14M, gen-
eral chairman, Ralph E. Woleslagel,
'13D, bonfire arrangements, John .
Lippincott, '14, program, and G." C.
Grismore, '14L, arrangements. Other
councilmen will act as marshals of
the parade. Those from the engineer-
ing department will meet with the
seniors; from the professional depart-
ments with the juniors; from the lit
department with the sophomores; and
those from the law department with
the freshmen.
