pursue the Michigan baseball team, it
is likely that the Orangemen will come
here from Syracuse with a squad more
fit to take the field than Coach Lund-
gren will be able to muster. In the
last two days, the Varsity has been
able to tape the field for only a short
time, and most of the regulars have
failed to get any practice in that time.
Tomorrow's game with Syracuse is
the first of two'struggles staged with
the Orangemen for this week, the oth.-
er being due after Coach Carr's men
roturn from East Lansing on Saturday.
With their team which defeated Dart-
moth, the easterners will give Mich-
igan a good ball game, and the best of
the regulars will be used.
Prandell, who has been able to take
part in the practice will be back at
short-stop, and the Varsity - will be
able to put its best front against the
Orangemen. It is about Davidson's
turn to work in the box, and he may
be expected to face the Syracuse nine
in one of the games, while the choice
for the other game will depend on the

TO APPEAR ATNOO
Year Book Dedicated to Coach Yost to
Contain Large Amount of
High Class ArtF
VOLUMES SELL AT USUAL PRICE
Michigan's 1915 year book will be
submitted to the campus this noon, and
1,000 copies which arrived by freight
yesterday are ready for sale. Tents
will be erected at the flag b; C a::ad at
the law walk from which the annual
will be sold. The Michiganensian will
contain a greater amount of art work
of higher class than has characterized
former year books. Following the
dedication page to Coach Fielding H.
Yost, is a section containing 24 full-
page views in mezzograph of campus
and Ann Arbor scenes. The regatta,
the spring contests and all of the
1914 football games are fully illustrat-
ed and described, an innovation with
the 1915 book.
The cost of publishing the annual
amounted to $7,000, or approximately
$4.30 per volume. This is an increase
over the cost of the book last year, al-
though the retail price of each volume
will remain the same. The year books
will sell for $2.50 apiece, and will be
on sale at 12:00 o'clock.
M)I'HIAMUA TO HOLD ROPE-IN
AROUNI) TAPPAN OAK TONIGHT

tomorrow night on "The Balkan Situ-
ation."
In a recent article in "The Living
Age," published weekly in Boston, and
a magazine which devotes considera-
ble space to foreign and American
writers, considerable credit was given
Mr. Trevelyan not only for his accu-
racy as a historian; but also for his
rare ability to give the events a spirit
that few historians are able to por-
tray.
it is expected that the campus in
general, as well as the faculty of the
history department, await the coming
of Mr. Trevelyan, and in advance pro-
nounce it to be a rare treat. The
unique feature of Mr. Trevelyan's lec-
ture will be his intimacy with present
conditions in Europe, for he has just
returned from the battle front in Ser-
via.
Few noted historians have lectured
here in the last few years, and as Mr.
Trevelyan isconsidered one of the
best English historians of today, his
lecture probably will attract a large
crowd.

mance languages at Carleton College,
Northfield, Mimi. He will assume his
duties there at the beginning of the
1915-16 college year. Carleton college
is a non-sectarian educational institu-
tion with an enrollment oftabout 500.
Professor' Bird visited the college
about a week ago, following an invita-
tion to accept a professorship in the
institution.
Professor Bird cane to the univer-
sity in 1903 as an instructor of ro-
mance languages, and in 1905 was ap-
pointed secretary of the engineering
college. It is not known who will be
chosen to occupy the two places which
will be left vacant by Professor ]ird.

Frances L. Hickok, '15, Michigan's
representative in the Northern Ora-
torical League contest to be held at
Iowa City, May 7, will deliver her ora-
tion, "The Mission of New Woman-
hood," at 4:10 o'clock this afternoon
in University Hall. The speech will
be open to the public.
The university oratorical contest of
.March 4, which awarded Miss Hickok
first place, likewise conferred upon
her the unique honor of being the only
woman ever chosen'to speak for Mich-
igan in either oratory or debating, and
the oratorical department has express-
ed the hope and expectation that the
women of the university will lend their
support and encouragement for the
coming battle by a large attendance at
the talk this afternoon.

dians, will conduct the pale-faces to
their private rooms after a brief pub-
lic cer'emony.-
Forestry Field Day Set for May 14
Friday, May 14, has been set as the
date for the annual field day of the
forestry department, and present plans
indicate that between 50 and 60 of the
woodsmen will attend. The pack train
will leave the economics building at
12:00 o'clock, and will go to the coun-
try south of the forestry farm. Sat-
urday will be spent in demonstrations

same time for the next two weeks. 1

Newell Replaces Baker of Illinois
Prof. Ira 0. Baker, head of the civil
engineering department of the Uni-
versity of Illinois, who was one of the
lecturers in the short course in high-
way engineering ~given by the univer-
sity about three months ago, has re-
signed after 41 years continuous ser-
vice as an instructor and professor of
civil engineering at the Illinois col-
lege. He will be succeeded by Fred-
erick Haines Newell, of Washington,
D. C., who also spoke to students of
the engineering college here about two
months ago.
Boat Club Continues Campus Canvass
Follow-up campaigning for members
for the Boat club has been precipitated
by the membership management, which
will confine its activities to fraterni-
ties and house clubs, which were, be-
cause of expediency, not approached
in the recent canvass of the campus.
One man will have complete charge
of the work'in his particular organiza-
tion. The solicitation will cease Sat-
urday night, according to A. M. Bent-
ley, '16, who is in charge. Incomplete
returns show that the total enrollment
of the club is between 200 and 300.
Visitors Inspect Engineering Building
W. A. Ball, a trustee of Rose Poly-
technic Institute at Terre Haute, Ind.,
and Herbert Foltz, an Indianapolis ar-
chitect, were in the city Monday to in-
spect the engineering building. The
two men are visiting various engineer-
ing colleges over the country to se-
cure ideas for the construction of a;
new engineering building at Rose Pol-
ytechnic Institute.

SYRACUSE, N. Y., May 4-Coach
Carr's boys have been hard at work
following teir trip to Dartmouth,
planning on tough struggles with the
Michigan nine on Thursday and Satur-
day of this week. The Michigan trip
will include a game with the Michigan
Aggies at Lansing, as well as the two
clashes with the Ann Arbor nine.
The game with Dartmouth brought
forth the real merit of the Orange
team, when the Varsity snatched a
2 to 1 game away from the Green.
Conable's fielding and Wilbur's hitting
featured the game. Slater, who was
in the box for the Methodists, held
Dartmouth to three hits, two of them,
however, being bunched in. the sev-
enth, cut off chances for a shut-out.
Bad weather kept the Syracuse nine
from playing the Amherst Aggies ac-
cording to schedule, but condition:,
have cleared, and Carr has been work-
ing his men for the games which are
now on hand, these being the conflicts
of the Michigan trip. Captain Nichols
has played in four games so far, and
since he has not pitched for some
time probably will oppose the Wolver-
ines in one of the games, while Slater,
who showed so well against Dart-
mouth, will be the other choice to fac3
Michigan.
GRAND RAPIDS EIGHT WISHES.
TO TRY SKILL OF DETROITERS
GRAND RAPIDS, May 4.-Among
out-of-town events for the local Boat
and Canoe club, the first will be at
Ann Arbor, May 29, when the local
eight will match their skill against
the coterie of stars representing the
Detroit Boat club. The race will be
staged on Barton Pond at an annual
regatta under the auspices of the Boat
club of the University of Michigan.
The Grand Rapids junior aggrega-
tion, 'which won the national cham-
pionship at Philadelphia last year, is
intact as to personnel, and its captain,
Sophus Johnson, a former Wolverine,
is anxious to show the university stu-
dents what the major aquatic sport is
like.

George P. McMahon, '16, was ele
president of Mimes, the operatic
ciety of the Michigan Union, at
night's meeting and was automati(
placed on the committee or commit
whose duty it is to select the c
men for the Union opera. Joh
Leonard, '16L, was chosen to ac
vice-president, -Lyle M. Clift, '16I
secretary, W. A. P. John, '16, as tr
urer, and Edward Haislip, '141
librarian.
In order that the book for
year's opera mighttbe selected as
as possible, a book committee

Immediately after the adjournm
of the Mimes meeting, the comm
on committees composed of Hc
Heath, P. Duffy Koontz; Charles
Kendrick, '15, Edward Haislip,
George P. McMahon, held a meeting
the purpose of selecting the gen
chairman for the 1916 opera. Defi
action was not taken, however, ai
second meeting has been called-
9:30 o'clock tomorrow night, when
business will probably receive its f
consideration. Louis Bruch, '16L, I

Professor Secures Number of Fossil.
While in Italy recently, in the in-
terests of the university library, Prof.
F. W. Kelsey, of the Latin department,
secured for the geological department
a valuable collection of invertebrate
fossils from the island of Capri. I
was donated by Dr. Ignaz Cerio, a
geologist who for some time has been
connected with the University of Na-
ples.
