Ithaca, N. Y., May 17.-Michigan lost
to Cornell today 13-6 in a game that
made the score book look like a crazy;
quilt. Everything that ever happened
in a ball game took place and some
things that nobody had ever heard of
before'were on exhibition. Miller
started for the Wolverines and got
away fairly well for two innings by
allowing Cornell' only one run in each
frame. Robins went in in the third
stanza and took his share of the pun-
ishment by walking one, allowing four
singles and two three baggers, all of
which netted the Ithacans five runs.
In the fourth, with two down, Michi-
gan started what looked like a rally
when Brandell, Caswell and Thomas;
all got singles, filling the bases. Dunne,
however, struck out, retiring the side.
In the fifth the Wolverines shoved
across four tallies. Newell doubled
to deep center, and went home when
Sauters threw wild to firat in an at-,
,tempt to retire, Ohlmacher. Eckley
repeated the performance on a ball
hit to him by Niemann, Qhlmacher
taking third. Walterhouse was hit.
Labadie popped up a high one to the
catcher. Brandell doubled to center,
scoring Niemann, Walterhouse and
Ohlmacher. The next two batters
filed out. Cornell gleaned six singles
in the next two innings, netting a run1
in each. Again in the seventh they-got
three on three singles, a double, and a
balk bytOhimacher. Michigan scored
one in the eighth on an error, a walk
and a passed bal.
In the ninth Brandell singled and

Adopt Army Bill
Republicans OpposeProvision for Vov.
Washington, May 17.-After a live-
ly discussion of the Mexican situation,
the national guard, and the proposed
government nitrate plant, the Senate
today adopted the conference report
on the army reorganization bill, with-
out a roll call. The bill provides for
a regular army of 211,000 officers and
men at peace strength, and approxi-
mately 260,000 men at war strength,
and for a federalized national guard
of 457,000 officers and men at maxi-
mum strength. Republicans, gener-
ally, and a few Democrats, expressed
their hostility at the retention of the
provision for the nitrate plant, which
Senator Lodge of Massachusetts said
was intended more for the develop-
ment of a southern motor car &oncern
than for the manufacture of gunpow-

The men of 1919, though few in num-
bers, last night furnished one of the
most spirited and enthusiastic "pep"
sessions in recent years.
Approximately 300 of the first year
men gathered together in West Phy-
sics hall to hear the new rules for the
spring contests explained, and to hear
how different contests were conduct-
ed in past years, but from the moment
the freshmen had selected their yell

Later, during a demonstration by a
number of freshmen in front of the
Orpheum theater, the police took into
custody J. H. McLean, '19E, who is ac-
cused of throwing an egg which soil-
ed an officer's uniform. McLean was
later released when identified by E. C.
Flanders, a local flOrist.
Tonight at 7:00 o'clock, the sophs
will try to outyell the freshmen at
their meeting in West Physics hall.

Failure of the American forces to cap-
ture or kill more bandits since enter-
ing Mexico on the chase after Pancho
Villa and his men has been due to
lack of guides. Natives had to be de-
pended upon at first and they were
afraid, if not absolutely unwilling, to
furnish the desired information or to
act as guides through the gorges and
canons which it was believed the ma-
rauders were using as daylight hid-

brought from the border, whose knowl-
