George Sisler's pitching might have
beaten Cornell, but failure of the Mich-
igan men to bat, run bases and field
allowed the Ithacans a lead and pre-
vented the Wolverines from catchingl
up, to play the usual tie game. The
score was 2 to 1. a
With two men down in the second
inning and two men on bases, two
Michigan errors let in the CornellI
quota of runs and placed the visitors
in the lead. Michigan's turn came in
the second half of the second inning,
when with two down, Labadie drew a.
pass and stole second, scoring from
that base wlhen Maltby got'a clean hit
.between first and second. Waltz hit,
advancing Maltby to third, and stole
second on the next play. Anderson
was whiffed, and the side was retired
with Cornell having the advantage of
a one run lead which she kept for the
remaining seven innings.
Sisler allowed the visitors but four,
hits and struck out 15 of the Ithacans-
For the most part they went out in
one-two-three order after the second,
and when they did not Sisler always1

BACKED BY CAREER
Giovanni Martinelli Lauded in Opera
Circles of Europe, England
and United States
SINGS IN METROPOLITAN OPERA
Winning an international reputation
in four years is the brilliant record
of Giovanni Martinelli, who will sing
at the Friday evening May Festival
concert in place of John McCormack.
First attracting attention in Italy dur-
,ing the Carnival in 1911, when he ap-
peared unheralded in "Ernani" at Mil-
an, he has since then met with trium-
phant success in London and, just a
year ago, .in New York. Martinelli is
but 29 years of age, and a pupil of
Guiseppe Mandalini,,to whom he gives
credit for all his success.
The musical public of Milan hailed
him as a new star. Later, he was en-
gaged to create the role of "Dick John-
son" in the "Girl of the Golden West,"
when it was given for the first time in
Italy at the Costanzi-theater in Rome.
This lead to his appearance at Convent
Garden, London, during the season of
1912 in "Tosca," "Aida," "Jewels of
the Madonna"and several other operas.
He was, however, soon signed up by
Manager Gatti-Casazza, of the Metro-
politan Opera company, who heard him
in London. Since coming to this coun-
try, Martinelli's success had been tre-
mendous, and thousands hail him as a
MANY ENTER INTERSCHOLASTICS
Annual Track Match Will Rank Larg-
est in History of Event
With a total of 40 teams entered, the
annual interscholastic meet to be
staged on Ferry field Friday and Sat-
urday, May 21 and 22, will rank as
one of the largest in the history of the
annual track event at Michigan. Since
1898, when Lansing won the meet, an
interscholastic has been held every
year, with the exception of 1912. This
year's competition, because of the num-
ber of teams and number of men en-
tered, will be especially keen.
Of the 40 teams entered, nine are
sent from outside the state. The foreign
teams average more men than the
state teams, 53 entries being sent from
schools not in Michigan, for an aver-
age of nearly six men to the team. A
total of 166 men are entered from 31
Michigan schools or an average of a
little over five men to a team.
Report No Change in Chenot's Illness!
James Chenot, '16, who has been
critically ill in Grace hospital, De-

may absorb the blood which has coag-
ulated in the tissues around his heart.

with Orangemen; Donnelly
Loses Close 440
Michigan's track team did its share
towards upholding the athletic honors
of the institution yesterday afternoon,
winning the dual meet with Syracuse
in handy fashion, 73 2-3 to 48 1-3.
Nine first places and a liberal sprink-
ling of seconds and thirds effectually
put the Orange to route.
One of the prettiest races of the
meet was the two mile, Haskins of
Syracuse nosing out Donnelly at the
tape after a close race all the way.
"Red" was barely a yard back, and the
finish was a thriller.
Captain Smith and Harold O'Brien
literally ran away with the field in the
dashes, the Syracuse sprinters trailing
all the way. "Eddie" Carroll won the
mile in fine style, and coming back in
the 880, finished second behind Ufer
who won the event.
