in Opening Inning
ITHACA, N. Y., May 19.-When Ben-
ton picked up a scratch bunt, which
would have rolled foul, the Ithacans
secured their only hit off Sisler in yes-
terday's game, which the Wolverines
won 2 to 0.
Cornell's lone hit came in the first
inning, when Gordon laid down a bunt.
Benton played the ball before it had
a chance to roll foul, which it would
have done if untouched. Gordon beat
the throw to first, and robbed Sisler
of credit for pitching the first no-hit'
gamc on the Michigan 115 schedule.
Labadie did the heavy end of the
stick work for the Wolverines, Ben-
ton and Labadie being responsible for
three hits apiece, while the right field-
er for the visitors hit in one of the
Michigan runs, and made the second
possible in the ninth when he sent
Maltby from first to third on a single.
Only two men reached first base for
the Ithacans, Gordon getting a scratch
hit in the first, and Bryant reaching
-the initial sack in safety in the sixth
when Brandell made his only error of
the day with. a wide throw to Maltby.
Michigan's first count came in the
second, when Benton singled, taking
second on Maltby's sacrifice hit. Nie-
mann, who took Sisler's place in the
outfield, failed to help. With two'down
Labadie came through with one of his
three hits, scoring Benton from sec-
ond.
The second count was registered for
Michigan in the ninth when Donovan
muffed Maltby's fly, and allowed him
to reach first. Labadie poked out a
single which sent Maltby to third, and
he crossed the plate fog the second
run when Walt mrade a single, his
only hit of the day.
Sisler started every inning except
the fifth by striking out the first Cor-
nellian to face him, le retired 11 of
the Ithacans by the strike out method,
and Bryant for the home team whiffed
almost as many, getting 10 of the Wol-
verines on strikes.1

the National Peace contest honors. N.
E. Pinney, '16, having won both the
university and Ripon College battles,
will speak as the representative of the
central group of states at Lake Mo-
honk, New York, this afternoon at 4:00
o'clock.
The United States has been arbi-
trarily divided into six sections each
of which has chosen a spokesman by
the process of elimination through
state and interstate contests. These
six sections, given in the order in
which they will come on the program,
will be represented as follows: North
Atlantic group, Boston College, Mass.;
South Atlantic group, University of
West Virginia, W. Va.; Central group,
University of Michigan, Mich.; South-
west group, University of Oklahoma,
Okla.; Western group, Washburn Col-
lege, Kansas; Pacific group, Reed Col-
lege, Oregon.
There will be five judges selected
from the delegates assembled at the
National Peace Conference, which is
held annually .at Lake Mohonk. Prizes
to be^ awarded are: first $100, second
$80, third $70, fourth $60, fifth $50 and
sixth $40.
This is the first year that the whole
of the United States has taken part
in the contest. Last year, only four
sections were organized, in 1913 only
three sections fought for the honors,
while in 1912, the combat was waged
by the Central and Eastern groups
alone.a

urged the first year men to rally their
comrades for the underclass contests.
The sophomores tonight are expect-
ed out in full force at the mass meet-
ing scheduled for 7:00 o'clock in the
,west physics lecture hall. The speak-
ers will be "Tommy" Hughitt, "Jim-
