ITHACA, N. Y., May 20.-Cornell
took the third game of her series with
Michigan by a 5 to 2 score after nine
innings of listless ball on the part of
the Michigan team. Michigan con-
tributed the usual help to her oppo-
nents by 'three errors, .and lacked the
push to put across runs in the oppor-
tunities afforded her.
Michigan's best chance to get the
drop on her opponents, came in the
first inning when Sheehy, MCQuoen
and Brandell got on bases at the same
time. With three men on and none
out, Michigan failed to realize on the
opportunity, and not one of the Mich-
igan men crossed the plate.
Errors in the first inning allowed
Cornell one run. Michigan tied the
score in the first of the second when
ILabadie singled. Ile was sacrificed
to second, scoriag-from there on Shee-
hy's double. Sheehy was left at sec-
ond, counting the fourth man left on
bases for the Michigan nine.
The Cornellians touched up Fergu-
son for four hits in the second. The
hits were made to count for two earn-
ed runs, and Michigan handed another
counter to the Ithacans, the inning
ended with the score 4 to 1 in Cor-
nell's favor. Michigan failed to come
through in the third, and Cornell
seized the opportunity to score one run
on some more loose play by the Mich-
igan team. With one man out, Fergu-
son was replaced by McNamara.
Cornell stopped scoring with the
coming of McNamara, and he allowed
them but three hits in the six innings
he was in the box. He showed fine
control, his only showing of wildness
being a wild pitch.
Michigan's second score came in the
fifth inning when McQueen singled.
He was out when Brandell pushed one
to the infield, and reached first on a
fielder's choice. Brandell showed a
flash of speed. aid stole second, scor-
ing when Clary, the Cornell eatcher,
pegged to center field.
Johnson, for Coach Sharpe's men,
kept the Wolverine hits well scattered.
Michigan bunched two in the seventh,
but missed another chance to score
when the Cornell twirler proved too
much for them, and pulled himself out
of the hole.
Sisler returned to hitting form, after
yesterday's game in which he failed to
figure in the hits column. He found
Johnson for two hits, -being the only
Michigan player to get more than one.

Clash Probable Between Elevens of
Th. o Institutions
Due to the intervention of Marc Cat-
lin, a former University of Chicago
football player, who is now coaching
Lawrence college, it is possible that
Michigan will meet the Wisconsin in-
stitution on the gridiron next fall.
Although Director P. G. 3artelme of
the athletic association has been con-
ducting negotiations with the Ripon
school for some time, it was thought
that the exhorbitant demands made by
Lawrence would preclude the possi-
bility of a mid-week game in Ann Ar-
bor. Mr. Bartelme is already certain'
of the first mid-week game, and is ne-
gotiating for a game for October 13
with two or three Ohio institutions.
Now it is fairly likely, however, that+
the Wisconsin institution will land
the date, as Coach Catlin has induced
the Lawrence authorities to reconsid-
er their refusal to meet the Wolver-
ines on their basis.+

Tugs-of-War Across Huron, Push-Ball
Contest and Relay Races
When the opening shot is fired in
the tug-of-war contest today, the an-
nual spring contests between the fresh-
men and sophomores will commence.j
In spite of the small number of men
who turned out for the preliminaries,
it is expected that the two classes will
put up a hard fight for victory in the
several events. After their defeat last
fall, the freshmen are out for revenge,
more than 400 of the first year men
having weighed in for the tug-of-war
The location of the tug-of-war con-
test will this year be just below the
Wall street bridge not far from the
island. As the railroad bridge across
the Michigan Central tracks is torn
up, the only route to the scene of the
contest is across the Main street
bridge and down Wall street. The
struggle will begin at 4:05 o'clock.
Preparations for the relay obstacle
races and pushball contest which will
start at 8:30 o'clock tomorrow morning
at Ferry field are nearing completion,
the last mass meeting of the sopho-
mores being held last night. The
second year men were addressed by
"Hap" Haff, "Jimmy" Raynsford and
"Tommy"Hughitt, and showed lots of
enthusiasm, although the attendance
was nothing to boast of.
Each side will enter a lightweight,
middleweight, and heavyweight team
of 45 men in the endeavor to win the
tug-of-war contest across the Huron
this afternoon. The freshmen have
a slight advantage over the sophs in
the heavyweight tug, as the team av-
erages more than 200 pounds. To score,
one side must pull their opponents
into the river until the banner on the
middle of the rope touches the oppo-
site bank.
All teams assemble in Waterman
gym at 3:00 o'clock before leaving for
river. Names of the contestants can
be found on page three.

Hard l'ought Battle Falls to Eastern
College; Second Honors
(lo to Virginia
N. E. Pinney, '10, who represented
Michigan in the National Peace Ora-
torical contest held at Lake Mohonk
yesterday, received third place accord-
ing to word sent by him to The Daily
last evening. Boston College, of the
North Atlantic group of states, won
the chief honors while the University
of Virginia, of the South Atlantic
group was given second laurels. First
prize was $100, second $80 and third
'Although details of the contest are
lacking, Pinney's telegram states that
the battle was hard fought, a fact
which is readily understood in view of
the extended competition this year,
two new sections of states taking part.
Last year only four sections were rep-
resented, while six, covering the entire
United States, sent spokesmen to the
present contest.
Pinney's subject was "The Ameri-
can Conquest of the World," the speech
which won him first place in both the
University Oratorical contest and the
Central group event held at Ripon
College, Wisconsin. Pinney is the
third representative that the Univer-
sity of Michigan has sent to the Peace
oratorical finals within the last four
years. Twice during this time Mich-
igan has captured the National hon-

Up- to a late hour last night, 13
teams with 67 men had arrived in
Ann Arbor for the largest state inter-
scholastic meet in the history of prep
school competition at Michigan.
Of the teams:which arrived yester-
day, Detroit Eastern high, with 12 men
actually ready for competition, was
the largest, while two out-of-the-state
schools, Toledo, Scott high and Lewis
Institute, with nine and seven men on
hand, ranked second and third.

already appeared, it is evident that
150 out of the 200 men entered in the
meet will be on hand when the com-
petition begins today on Ferry feld.

men will be taken around the boule-
vard 'in automobiles.

Wolverine Lose Every Match to Racket
Wielders of Philadelphia;
Courts Puzzle
Losing every match and all but one
set, the men of Michigan went down in
defeat before the tennis stars of the
University of Pennsylvania here today.
The visitors were unaccustomed to the
grass courts and consequently appear-
ed off form.
Davis, the Penn star, had little dif-
4culty with Captain Reindel. Both
sets went his way by the same score,
6-1. Thus another pelt was hung on
the belt of the man who has already
beaten McElroy, of Pittsburg, Church,
of Princeton, and Wallace Johnson,
who is regarded as one of the best
tennis players in the country.
Captain Rowland beat Crawford, of
Michigan, in two sets. The score of
the first was 6-1. The Wolverine im-
proved in the next and pushed the
count to 6-4, before he accepted de-

feat. Replegle beat Switzer, 6-3, 6-0.
It was in the match between Mack
of Michigan and Disston of Penn that
Michigan won its only set. The first
set was won by the Philadelphian,
6-3. Not daunted by the fate of his
comrades, Mack went in and tock the
next one, 6--1. After a hard stuggle,
in which the deciding set went to
deuce, Disston conquered.
The doubles were easy for the Penn-
sylvanians, who took both in straight

Swarthmore Loses Few Men In Grad-
nation; Wolverines Hope to
Play Better Ball
Michigan and Swarthmore clashed
for the first time on the baseball dia-
mond last year, when the easterners
defeated the Wolverines in a 6 to 5
game, winning for themselves the dis-
tinction of being one of the six teams
to take a game away from the inter-
collegiate champions.
The strength of last year's team
at Swarthmore has not been sapped
by graduation to a great degree, and
with three good pitchers to choose
from the eastern team should show a
strong tendency to repeat its perform-
ance of last year.
Last year Michigan showed poor
baseball at Swarthmore, making four
errors, and throwing the game away
when the men reached first. Although
they garnered one more hit than the
Swarthmore team, counting 11 safe-
ties, they were unable to make 'the
clouts count for runs.
Twining pitched for the home team,
and managed to keep the Wolverine's
hits scattered, while Davidson, who
started for Michigan was replaced by
Quaintance in the fourth inning when
Michigan's defense went to pieces, and
Davidson weakened.

" Perhaps on no previous occasion
has the Choral Union achieved a great-
er triumph than it did last night in
the second of the series of May fes-
tival concerts. Under Professor Stan-
ley's direction, their delineation of
Wolf-Ferrari's beautiful cantata, "The
New Life," ringing. with animated and
tuneful melodies, kas a distinctly dis-.
criminating one. As difficilt as it is
to secure perfect freedom of move-
nient, and a light, airy quality with
such a large organization, including
organ, piano, orchestra, and chorus,
Professor Stanley secured many mag-
nificen't effects in shading, color, and
in the production of broad climaxes.
Mr. Theodore Harrison, as baritone
soloist in the cantata, was a distinct
asset in its successful r'endition. He
has a voice of rich, luscious "timbre,
remarkable for its carrying qualities.
He distinguished himself in his inter-
pretations, giving a thoroughly sym-
pathetic treatment throughout his dif-
ficult role.
Heard only in the first solo, Miss -
Olive Kline creates a favorable im-
pression, her -voice being clear and
strong, and her interpretation quite
adequate. Much interest was display-
ed in the eccentric effects in the or-
chestral interludes. The instrumental .
"Dance of the Angels,' employing the
curious ensemble of harp, piano, tyn-
pani, andstrings playing pizzicato, ex-
cited much admiration, but was not
repeated so that the veoherence of the
cantata might not be interrupted.
Ann Arbor may congratulate itself
on being,.accorded the privilege of
hearing so distinguished an artist as
Miss Frieda Hempel. She will be re-
membered as the wizard trill producer,
She is-gifted with a voice of surprising
pliancy and freshness, and with a
magnetic personality, she was accord-
ed a veritable ovation. Her first offer-
ing was, "Queen of the Night" from
"Magic Flute." Here she exhibited both
her phenomenal technical capacity as
well as powers of interpretation. She
was heartily applauded, offering as an
encore, the simple, but beautiful cra-
dle-Song". of Mozart's. Her second
number, "Ernani involami," still more
dazzling in its brilliancy won for her
a burst of applause that would not be
silenced, until she graciously respond-
ed with the captivating, "Blue Dan-
ube Waltzes," set to an Italian poem.
Enthusiasm spread. rampant necessi-
tating a repetition of the last part.
Miss Hempel is a coloratura vocalist
of exquisite technique, and her reap-
pearance at Ann Arbor will always be
Taken as a matter of course, the
splendid orchestra under Frederick
Stock, played with characteristic en-
ergy and conviction. Although this
organization is the backbone of the en-
tire festival, and deserves the highest
praise, it rarely receives more than a
nominal amount of applause.
The attractions for tomorrow af-
ternoon are Harold Bauer, pianist, who
appears in the famous Schumann, "P-
anoforte Concerto in A minor," and
Margaret Keyes, Contralto, already fa-
miliar to festival patrons.
In the evening the Metropolitan ten-
or, Giovanni Martinelli, will be heard
in three operatic numbers. Mr. Mar-
