Michigan's Forum will discuss the
summer baseball question at itssec-
ond meeting at 7:30 o'clock tonight in
the big hall at the Union. There has
been considerable discussion on the
campus recently as to whether or not
Varsity baseball players should be al-
lowed to compete in summer baseball,
and the Forum is expected to bring out
the consensus of opinion.
During the past few months the
summer baseball question has been
under consideration by the athletic
boards of practically all of the big
universities and colleges in the coun-
try, and recently a well known sport
writer conducted a straw vote among;
the presidents of most of the larger in-
stitutions of learning, and the results
of his canvass were made public in an
article which recently appeared in the
Saturday Evening Post,
The general attitude of those men
who replied to the letter favored the
abolishing of the sport rather than,
allowing the professional element to1
creep into it, but it is also interesting
to note that two of the largest eastern
universiies came out flatly in favor oft
permitting its Varsity baseball men to
compete in summer ball. It is ex-,
pected that all angles of the question
will be discussed by those attending
tonight's meeting.
Walker Peddicord, '16L, will preside
at the meeting. As in the session of
last week, informality will be the key-t
note, the only rule of procedure being-
the one limiting speeches to five min-
utes.
The first meeting of the Forum last
week brought out a constant attend-
ance of 50 men, and nearly every marl
present expressed himself on the
marking system.

o'clock yestejrday, when approximately
O0U; committeemen started the 14-day
invasion of the campus. The student
body has been divided according to
schools and colleges, with special rep-
resentatives among faculty and alumni
men. Mnagers of the club have
printed for circulation large numbers
of ca,As, which bear the club's pur-
poses and benefits.
'1e purposes of the organization, as
recently drawn up by the men in
charge, are; First, to help prevent ac-
cidents on the Huron river by means
of education in the a of canoes, and
in how to act in cases of emergency;
second, to promote interest in aquatic
sports and third, .a step towards in-
terclass rowing and a Varsity crew.
Benefits of membership to those who,
sign up are enumerated as follows:
Free entrance to all events of the an-
nual spring regatta; the right to fly
the official flag which is obtainable at
the Michigan Union; numerous social!
events, open to members only, and
aiding the growth of one of Michigan's
big campus institutions. Definite re-
ceipts apd registering of those who
enroll is assured, of the payment of
one dollar by Unio members or $1.50
by non-Union members.
Committeemen in the present cam-
paign and officers of the club held a
meeting Rt the Union last night, at
which the progress of the work was'
discussed anda t which committeemen
were appointed to assist Harold J.
Smith, '16E, who is in charge of the re-
gatta to be held on the Huron river
in May. Names pf the men appointed
are being withheld until all questions
of eligibility are settled.

at their last meeting.
Werner Schroeder, '16L, recording
secretary of the Union last year, when
interviewed by a Daily reporter,
said, "I am heartily in favor of the
proposed plan, for it is easier to ad-
vertise one election than three, it will
prevent duplication of offices and the
elections, which under the present
plan take up so much time will be dis-
posed of at once. The idea has my,
unqualified approval."
J. S. Leonard, '16L, manager of the
1914 football team, stated that he fa-
vored the plan since it would bring out
those to the general election who were;
interested only in one election.
W. D. Cochran, '16P,Ocaptain-elect of
the football team, said that he believed
that the idea was good. H. L. Smith,
'16, captain of the track team, held the
same opinion.
K. S. Baxter, '15E, said, "4 believe
that it is a good thinrg, tor it will bring
out more votes."
P. D. Koontz, '17L, president of the
Union, stated that he favored the plan
because it would minimige the time
and expense of the elections, and
would bring out a more representative
vote.
"I believe that the proposed plan
would be a good thing," said W. S.

PICK VARSITY TE An ON FRIIY SON

" Morrie" Dunne, of the Varsity foot-
ball team, made his first appearance in
baseball togs yesterday, when he re-
ported to try out for the position of
catcher. Dunne is well built and
seems heavy enough for the position,
and showed evidences of a, good wing
during yesterday's drill.
More- than fifty men tried out for
positions under Coach Lundgren yes-
terday. Of this number, Bowles, Eag-
er, Lambert, Peacock, e"t F usw,
Hill, McGraw, Stallings, Dunne,
Harshman, Watterhouse and Han-d
shaw have signed up as catchers.
The pitchers who worked out' num-
bered among them Davidoon, McNam-
ara, Flynn, Soddy and L. . Stewart,
Newell,.Paisley, Maltby ant Dwyer ap-
peared among those who are. out. for
the position of first base. Te third
basemen comprised Fow'yier, Thomas,
Whitmarsh, John,4En, Wensher and
Leininger. - helly, Baer, Brandell,
Rowan~ Smith, Aerntz and Lutz were
rhe men on the floor who N re out for
the short-stop posi~i~o. The list of
men registered as outfielders is made
up largely of men who are also trying
out for some other position, Of the
men who are only enrolled as outfield-.
ers the following were on hand: Lev-1
inson, Fwler, H. J. Smith, Taylor and1
Nezinan.
Batting practice was agai, post-
poned until today.

The athletic association offices will
be open from 9:00 o'clock until 5:00

were fortunate enough to have their
particular numbers selected, !ut after
that time the few remaini, will be

M. G. Robinson, Farrell's latest find
for his 1915 Varsity, broke the sea-
son's record for the 2-lap distance on
the Waterman gymnasium track yes-
terday afternoon when he raced
against time for a mark of 28 2-5 sec-
onds. He hung up this reeord as his
attempt in the try-outs for the 1000-
yard relay team which will compete
with the Notre Dame squad'as the fin-
al event of the meet program on Sat-
urday night.
Although several men are still to run
their trials before Farrell makes his
official announcement of the make-up
of his relay team, it is expected that
the squad will be made up of Captain
Smith, O'Brien, Robinson and Lapsley.
The negro runner and John, the quar-
ter miler, together with one or two
others, have still to run their trials,
and the result may mean that Lapsley
will lose out. The other three have
their places practically clinched.
Huntington and Stevens both ran
their trials yesterday afternoon, but
failed to show anywhere near the Rob-
inson class. Both will be entered fog
the meet, however, Huntington prob-
ably going into the quarter, and Stev-
ens the half-mile event. Farrell will
not save his relay runners for that
race alone, but will enter each one in
his particular event. Inasmuch as
Smith, O'Brien and Lapsley are his
best sprint men, the Wolverine trainer
will enter Robinson in either the quar-
ter or the half-mile. John will be the:
Michigan team's chief reliance in the,
440-yard distance, and, with his team
mates, should give the Catholics a
hard fight for all three places.
The wonderful form shown by Rob-
inson, both in the Fresh-Soph meet of
Saturday and in the trials yesterday,
marks him as one of the most valua-
ble acquisitions for the Michigan squad
this year. His time yesterday is better
than that made by either Kurz, Hughes
or Seward in the Cornell-Michigan re-
lay race last year, when the Wolver-
ines won the event in 1:.53.. The soph-
omore crack is equally good in the
sprints and the middle distances, and
Farrell is now engaged in feeling him
out, preparatory to developing his fird
in his best event.
Preent indications point to the en-
tering of from three to five Wolverines
in every event on the meet program
for Saturday night. The chief strength
of the Michigan team will lie in the
runs, with points sure in the pole vault,
but a matter of doubt in the weight
event.

'Captain Mattsson's fencing featured
yesterday 'afternoon's match between
the faculty foil artists and the under-
graduate swordsmen, the Wolverine
leader winning all three of his boots.
The faculty trio won the match, five
bouts to four, Nichols being the nly
other student fencer to win a bout.
The work of the Varsity candidates
was highly satisfactoy, however, and
in view of the form displayed by the
men yesterday, followers 'of fencing
are looking for a close contest when
the Michigan tegai meets Cornell at
Ithaca on Saturday.
The team has not yet been picked
for Saturday's match, but the final
choice will be made Friday. Three Den,
and possibly an alternate, will be taken
to Ithaca for the first intercollegiate
competition of the year, Captain Matts-
son being the only man at present who
is sure of a place.
