Michigan ScorePS Six Runs in Second
Inning Bunching Five hits
on Former Foe,
Single Tally Off Ferguson Comes in
Last Round; Benton's Foot
Not Badly Hurt
SYRACUSE, N. Y., May 17.-Coach
Lundgren's ball team got rid of its
jinx today, and broke the tie with Syr-
ocuse, defeating the Orangement in a
6 to 1 game. Turnure, who pitched the
12 inning tie in the second Syracuse
game with Michigan, worked for the
home team, and Ferguson did the
mound work for the visitors.
All of Michigan's counters came in
the second round, when the Wolver-
ines bunched five hits on their ancient
Nemesis, and coupled these with two
errors to score six runs. A wild throw
by Ahearn pushed in the first Michi-
gan run, but good stick work by Cap-
tain McQueen's men was responsible
for the rest.
Ferguson for Michigan kept the Syr-
acuse hits well scattered, allowing
them to bunch the clouts on but one
occasion. In the ninth, the first three
Syracuse hitters singled, and Travis,
the fourth man, was hit by 'Fergie,'
forcing in the only counter for the
home team. With the bases full and
none out, Turnure, the Orange pitcher,
hit a fast one to McQueen who tossed
to Maltby, starting a triple play, Mc-
Queen to Maltby to Brandell.
Michigan looked. weak in the first
time at bat, being retired in. one-two-
three order, but Syracuse did not look
much stronger, and the first inning
closed without any scoring by either
team. Sisler opened the second for
Michigan with a bingle which landed
him safely on first. Benton followed
with a clout which went for a safe hit,
putting Sisler on second. Labadie and
Maltby both went out without pushing
over a score. Waltz drew a pass, fil-
ling the bases. Ferguson reached first
on a wild heave, and Michigan crossed
the plate for the first time.
The remaining runs followed when
Sheehy hit, scoring Ferguson. Sheehy
scored on Brandell's hit, McQueen, who
singled taking third. Brandell died
at second when caught in the act of

Ells WilIl Be Strong Competitors at
Eastern Intercollegiittes
NEW HAVEN, May 17.-Yale's pros-
pects for the eastern intercollegiate
are much brighter this year than they
have been for several seasons back.
In the recent dual meets, the Blue
track aggregation has been uncover.
ing all kinds of star performers. Wil.
kie has been running the 440 around
49 fiat' repeatedly, and on several oc-
casions has run close to the intercol-
legate record of 48 fiat. Oler, Yale's
high jumper, mourns for several days
if he doesn't clear two or three inches
over six feet ev'ery time out. Tread-
way, the Yale dash man, has been
running in excellent style, displaying
particular strength over the 220.

Freshmen Turn Out in Large Numbers
for Contests; Few Sophs
leport for Trial
Freshmen, in all departments, will
"pep" up for the spring games at a
big mass meeting at 7:00 o'clock, to-
morrow night, in the west physicis lee-
Cochran, "Hap" Haff and "Tommy"
Raynsford, and. "Eddie" Saier will

day evening, at the same place as the
first year men. The speakers who will
address the second year men are "Bill"
Cochran, "Hap" Haff, and "Tommy"
Hughitt. After the pep meeting the
sophomores of all classes will hold a
smoker at the Union.
Today is the last opportunity for
tryouts in the relay event. The trials
will be held from 2:00 to 5:00 o'clock
at Ferry field, just south of the club
house. It will be necessary for many
sophomores to qualify today.
The freshmen had the sophomores
greatly outnumbered in yesterday's
weighing in at Waterman gymnasium.
The record weight was credited to the
first year men, who produced a 275
pound candidate.
, The fresh lits, at their meeting yes-
terday, elected A. Walls captai of the
pushball contest, J. R. Darnell cap-
tain of the lightweight tug-of-war, and
L. E. Houle captain of the second re-
lay team. The soph engineers elected
Dick B. Gardener captain of the third
relay team, J. L. Whelan captain of
the middleweights, and H. E. Carlson
as captain of the lightweights.
The fresh architects and the fresh
dents, yesterday elected P. 0. Davis,
'18A, as the captain of their first relay
team. Fresh laws will elect their cap-
tain at 1:30 o'clock Thursday, in room

sembly. The combined soph dents,
pharmics, homeops and architects will
meet to elect the first relay captain,
in room 311 engineering building, at
4:30 o'clock today.
Owing to the scarcity of water in
the Huron river, at the present time,
it may be necessary to hold the annual
contest lower down the river. The.
last few rains have not raised the riv-

er enough to make the contests inter-
esting, and the Eastern MichiganEdi-
son company authorities. say that it
will be almost impossible to open the
gates of the dam.

)lieljigan Players Diplay UnexpeIted
. Form and Defeat Strngly
'Toned Smoky City -
Wolverines Receive Setback at Oberlin
.Saturday; Beet Carnegie
'tech Today
PITTSBURG, PA., May 17.-Show-
ing unexpected form, the Michigan ten-
nis team defeated the strong quartet
of the University of Pittsburg today,
four matches to two. Captain Rein-
del's men thought they would heet the
best team of their trip east in the men
from the Smoky City, and had planned
on a hard match.
The oflveries were victorious in
three of the singles and split the doub-
les. Captain Reindel was the loser in
his match with Captain McElroy of the
Pittsburg team, and Reindel and
Crawford were defeated in the doubles.
The other contests went the way of
the Wolverines.
Switzer, who has been the surprise
of the two matches played, took his
match from Myers in easy fashion,
winning the second set hands down.
Mack also had an easy time in beat-
ing Haines. Crawford struck more of
a snag in Gant, but finally won out.
The doubles were both hotly contested,
Michigan losing the first and winning
the second. The second set in
each match went to deuce before
the winner was decided. McElroy,
captain and star of the Pittsburg
team, who defeated Reindel, is rec-
ognized as one of the best of colle-
giate tennis players. le is placed
thirtieth in the national tennis ranking.
ie took things rather easy with the
Michigan captain, winning the. two sets
without much difficulty.
The summaries:
Singles-McElroy (P) d. Reindel
(M), 6-4, 6-2; Crawford (M) d. Gant
(P) 6-4, 8-6; Switzer (M) d. Myers
(P), 6-4, 6-4; Mack (M) d. Ilaines
(P), 6-2, 6-0. Doubles--McElroy
and Gant (5) d. Reindel and Crawford
(M), 6-3, 7-5; Switzer and Mack (M)
d. Haines and Myers (P), 6-4, 7-5.
Unsteadiness forced the Michigan
team to go down to defeat before Ober-
lin Saturday. The end of the match
found the score 4-2. Wilder, the Cal-
ifornian, was easily the star of the day.
He beat Reindel, 6-0, 6--3. Switzer
and Mack won their matches in the
singles, but Craword was defeated,
6-2, 6-0. The Wolverines lost both
of the doubles.
Efforts to play off the three-cornered
tie in inter-class baseball in the Law
School have been unavailing, and as
a result first and second teams for the
first round are still undetermined.
Fresh and junior laws are to play this
afternoon, the winner being conceded
department champions. The loser of
this game will play the seniors on
Wednesday, the victorious nine being
allowed to continue in the second
round as the second team of the law
As a result of these extra games
to determine the law championship,
it has been necessary to indefinitely
postpone the fresh lit vs. first team in
law division, and fresh dents vs. sec-
ond team in law division, scheduled
for today, and the fresh medic vs. first
team in the law division, scheduled for
tomorrow. All' other games will be
played in accordance with schedule
published in Sunday's Daily.

University Women Preparing for May
Dancing Fete in Natural
Setting of Obsera.
tory Hollow
Action Will Be Seen Under Wlow of
Searchlights; Seniors Carry
Japanese Lanterns
Outdoor rehearsals for the May
dancing fete, which will be given by
the wome of the university Wednes-
day evening, May 26, will begin today
under the personal direction of Miss
Alice Evans. Observatory Hollow,
which will form the natural setting
for the portrayal of the Greek myth,
"Persephone and Demeter," has been
recently mowed and rolled, and is in
excellent condition for the coming
Something new in the way of light-
ing effects has been contributed by the
Eastern Michigan Edison company. A
full moon will be seen rising over the
clump of trees, which are to form the
background of the setting, and during
the performance four enormous
searchlights will light the scene for
the dancing. Vari-colored lights will
be used also to give added effect to the
interpretation of the seasons.
Talent has been secured for this
production which is said to be the best
among the women of the campus. All
of the members of the cast were chos-
en by the process of elimination fol-
lowing tryouts, and a large number
have already appeared in former cam-
pus productions.
Following the presentation of "Per-
sephone and Demeter" the senior wom-
en will celebrate the time-honored
"Lantern Night," but in a different
manner than has been followed for-
merly. Attired in caps and gowns, the
graduates will march across the field,
each carrying a Japanese lantern. Af-
ter executing a number of intricate fig-
ures, which have been planned for the
occasion, the lanterns will be handed
over to the junior women, who will
come to meet the departing class, thus
showing the transfer of the authority
from one class to the other.
Music for the fete has been carefully
selected, and Martha Gray, '16, has
written several selections for the in-
terpretative dances, which have been
prepared for orchestration by William
Mills, '18, who composed a large share
of the music for "All That Glitters."
afanagement Seeks Quarters for High
School Athletes Still
Uneared for
AlthougA over 200 prep school ath-
letes will pour into Ann Arbor Friday
and Saturday of this week, the men in
charge of the seventeenth annual in-
terscholastic meet, report that accom-
modations have been secured for only
half of them.
In former years, the authorities have
had no trouble in placing the men at
fraternity houses, more places being
reported for the meet. This year, In-
terscholastic Manager Frank G. Mil-
lard sent out postcards to all the fra-
ternities, asking them how many men
they could take. Up to date, only a
few of these cards have been answered,
and as a result, many of the men have

not been placed.
To make the meet a success, Man-
ager Millard states that it is necessary
that all fraternities which have not of-
fered accommodations report at once.
The entertainment of the visiting men
will be taken care of by the manage-
ment, the fraternities being asked to
furnish only meals and places to sleep.
Aero society's new biplane was
brought to Ann Arbor from Detroit
yesterday afternoon, and is being ad-
justed by members of thesociety. It
is being kept in the building next to
The Daily on Maynard street, where
it will remain until it is taken to Bar-
ton dam at the time of the Union Boat
club regatta on May 29. The motor
will be tested today, and a number of
small repairs will be made before it is
ready for flight.

Student councilmen will be nomi-
nated on Thursday by the sophomore
lit, engineering, and law classes, and
by the junior medics, homeops, dents,
and architects, as provided in the con-
stitution of the council. The places in
which the class meetings are to be
held will be announced. Elections fol-
low next week.
Every Michigan Graduate and Former
Student Who Can Be Reached
Will Receive Alumnus
To inform "Michigan men every-
where" of the Union campaign and the
proposed new building, a copy of the
May issue of the Michigan Alumnus,
out today, will be sent to every grad-
uate and former student of the univer-
sity, whose address can be found in
the university records.
The magazine contains a summary
of the status of the campaign, and in-
cludes a statement from the architects,
I. K. Pond, '79E, and Allen Pond, '80,
an article on the "Campaign for the
Union," and a "Statement to Alumni,"
prepared by the chairil. of the cam-
paign committee. Editorially, the
Alumnus tells of the campaign among
the students, and says that $60,000 has
already been subscribed by the stu-
dent body towards a $100,000 total to
be given by them.
The editors have attempted to give a
concrete answer to almost any ques-
tion that might arise in the mind of an
old graduate, concerning the position
the Union occupies at Michigan and its
most urgent need.
"The Home of the Michigan Union,"
a statement by the architects, tells of
the air of democracy, which they tried
to weave into the plans, and is supple-
mented with six cuts of exterior and
interior scenes and plans of the six
floors of the proposed building. Six
pages of pictures show local chairmen
and committeemen of the building
fund campaign in various cities in the
c:1 untry, where the committee organi-
zation has been completed for the cam-
paign next fall.-,
Already 29 classes have arranged for
reunions in Ann Arbor on June 22 and
23, according to the magazine, and be-
cause other classes are considering
the advisability of issuing a call, it is
thought that last year's record of 1,420
registrations will easily be surpassed.
M. W. Welch, '17, F. R. Snyder, '15,

Thief Believed to Be Girl Operates
During Senior Sing
During the senior sing last Friday
night, a sneak thief entered a Women's
League house at 604 East Jefferson
street and made away with $16 in cash
Mrs. J. A. Jenkins, landlady, was
called to the telephone tg answer an
inquiry as to whether any of the girls
were at home. Upon being assured
that there was no one in the house
except the landlady, the inquirer, a
girl, rang off, Housework occupied
the attention of Mrs. Jenkins for the
next few minutes, and while she was
so engaged she heard someone moving
about on the second floor.
Calling up the stairway, she receiv-
ed no answer. While passing to the
front of the house to find out whom. it
was, she heard someone, whom she be-
lieves to be a girl, run down stairs
and out the front door. Investigation
disclosed the fact that $16 in cash had
been taken from one room.
The Ann Arbor police think that the
thief is the same one who, a short time
ago, committed a similar offense at a
rooming house on South University
