SYRCUSE DEFEATS
in I'iglit 1-Inning Game Oramngemuen
Conquer Farmers; Final
Score, 4- i
TURNURE MAY OPPOSE MICHIAN
(Detroit Free Press News Service)
EAST LANSING, MICH., May 7-
Timely hitting by the Syracuse pair,
Hamilton and Travis, resulted in the
defeat of the Michigan Aggies' ball
team by a 4 to 3 score, in an 11-inning
game here this afternoon.
M. A. C. took the lead in the first
inning when wildness on the part of
Nichols, the Syracuse captain and
pitcher, allowed the Aggies two runs.
A run in the fifth and one in the sev-
enth tied the score for the Orange-
men, but the Aggies again took the
lead in their half of the seventh, when
they pushed their third run across the
pan.
In the first of the ninth Hamilton
got to first on a single, making sec-
ond on a bunt, and scoring when Trav-
is doubled between second and short.
M. A. C. failed to score in her half, and
the overtime started. Neither side
scored in the tenth inning.
Hamilton again started trouble for
the Aggies, when he tripled in the
eleventh, with the score a tie at 3 to 3.
Travi, who had driven in the run
which tied the score in the ninth, sin-
gled, scoring Hamilton from third.
The Syracuse pitchers, Slater and
Nichols, have each worked in the box
on the trip west, and it is likely that
Turnure, who furnished the Wolver-
ines so much trouble last year will
face Michigan in tomorrow's game at
Ann Arbor.
The score by innings and the bat-
teries of today's game follow:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11-R
Syracuse 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1-4
M. A. C. ..2 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0-3
Batteries: for M. A. C.-Weeder and
Bibbins; for Syracuse-Nichols and
Morgan. Hit: Syracuse-8; M. A. C.

TENNIS TEAM MEETS DETROIT
ON STRAITS CITY COURT TODAY
Make Preparations to Oppose Eastern
Clubs; Will have Week of
Hard Practice
Michigan plays the last match on her
tennis schedule before going east,
when six representatives of the Maize
and Blue meet the Detroit Tennis club
team on the City of the Straits courts
this afternoon. The team leaves here
in the morning, reaching Detroit in
time for luncheon and a short rest be-
fore playing.
The team will play in the following
order: No. 1, Captain Reindell; No. 2,
Crawford; No. 3, Mack; No. 4, Switzer;
No. 5, Polasky; No. 6, Cohen. These
men will play the men on the Detroit
team whose numbers correspond to
theirs, thus having the men on each
team play together in order of their
ranking in the tryouts.
A week of practice remains to the
Wolverines before their invasion of
the east, and the men will carry on
their "round-robin" trials throughout
the whole of the week. The composi-
tion court should be complete by next
week, and as a result the squad should
not need to be inactive on any of the
afternoons.

STARHURERWILL
OPPOSESYRACUS
Coach Expects to Use Sisler through
Entire Game; Nemann to Fill
Place in Outfield
ALTERS TEAM'S BATTING ORDER
Michigan's bet will oppose Syra-
cuse in today's game, George Sisler
being the man who will do the twirl-
ing for the Wolverines in their sec-
ond brush with the Orangemen. Sisler
has been out for practice every day,
and the coach expects to be able to
use the veteran pitcher for the full
game, the first time this year.
Sisler's appearance in the box will
leave an open place in the outfield
which will be filled by Niemann, who
will play in right field, and Labadie
will be shifted to the place left vacant
by Sisler. Niemann has been hitting
the ball hard in practice, and his abil-
ity to serve in the outfield will re-
ceive a real tryout in today's game.
The Wolverines have not been hit-
ting the ball the way the coach would
like to see his proteges hit, and a shift
in the batting order is partly the re-

sult of trying to make the men get
their batting eye back and partly the
result of the using of Sisler in the b'ox
instead of in the field. The batting
order for today's game will be as fol-
lows: Sheehy cf; McQueen 2b; Bran-
dell ss; Sisler p; Benton c; Labadie
If; Maltby 1b; Waltz 3b; Niemann rf.
Yesterday's practice was devoted to
a heavy batting drill which lasted
most of the afternoon.

FARRELJAKES 25
ATHLETES TO FRAY
Biggest Squad Michigan Has Sent
Away Leaves for Contest
with Notre Dame
EXPECT TO DEFEAT CAThOLICS
Coach Farrell, Track Manager Con-
nely and 25 Varsity track athletes left
over the Michigan Central yesterday
noon for South Bend, where they
meet Notre Dame in a dual meet to-
day.
This is one of the biggest squads of
track men that Michigan has ever
sent away for a meet, and despite the
fact that strength does not lie partic-
ularly in mere numbers, local track
followers are looking for a victory
over the Notre Dame squad.
Michigan defeated the Catholics in
the indoor meet in Waterman gym by
a rather one-sided score, but Coach
Farrell stated that he expected to find
a much stronger squad in South Bend
than that which Notre Dame sent up
here for the indoor affair.
The coach stated that a big differ-

ence existed between indoor and out-
door work and cited the case of Syra-
cuse a couple of years ago. Michigan
doubled the Orangemen's score in the
indoor affair, but when the two squads
clashed on the cinders later in the
year, the easterners' victory over
Michigan was as decisive as had been
their earlier defe'at.
The team will leave South Bend
shortly after the meet is over and will
arrive in Ann Arbor late tonight.

ed on sale from 9:00 o'clock to 12:00

tfag pole.
The la.rge sales which greeted the
year book on its appearance upon the
campus continued yesterday, though
weather conditions prevented the ex-
haustion of the edition, as was antici-
pated. It is not likely that the sale
will be continued at the book stores
after the campus sale of this morning.
