At 3:45 Ann Arbor time this afternoon, the team bearing'
Michigan's fighting nine will come to a stop at the Michigan
Central station. We owe it to these men to drown out the steam
locomotive with a leather-lunged "locomotive" that will show
them, that every man and vyoman in the University is proud'
of the fight they made.
No team has better deserved a triumph, than this, which has
maintained its morale in tb face of reverses and seemingly'in-
surmountable difficulties. One defeat at the hands of the Illini
merely served to strengthen the Varsity's determination to
come back. And they did. No game was considered lost or won'
until the umpire gave his final decision; this was proved by the
18-inning contest with, Michigan's. opponents of yesterday.
Let's have everybody who is not in the hospital on hand
this afternoon to give that squad the only kind of a reception
their work deserves. Three-forty-five -- remembert

"I am greatly pleased with the plan+
formulated by Michigan students and

the.local Kiwanis club, and large sub-
scriptions marked yesterday's activ-r
ti'es for the Michigan fresh air camp,
which students plan -to pattern after
the successful camps of Princeton -and+
the University of Pennsylvania. It is

secure supplies at Lane hall today. Jf
speakers are wanted to present the
plan to the organizations, Dunne
should be called or L. C. Reimann, at
Lane hall.

Prof. John C. Parker, of the engi-
neering faculty, said yesterday re-
garding the camp plan, "It is bully.
I've been a boy myself, and I know
that a lot of cussedness and mean-
ness and general deviltry is the re-
sult of a fellow's not having the rigt
outlet for his' energies. This relief
valve the camp will supply. Inciden-
tally it is a great thing for our Mich-

call on several of his former Urofes-

possibility, of the repeal of the law. I
Dean Heriry M. Bates ,of the Law
school, Prof. Thomas C. trueblood, of
the oratory repartment, and Prof.
Jesse S. Reeves, of the political sci-
ence department, received visits.
Termed Bad for Chinese
Mr. SyCip was in China last month
and conferred with Dr. Yen, the Chi-
nese foreign minister, regarding the
new act of the Philippine legislature.
Officers hold that the act will be a
gross injustice to the Chinese people,
will destroy the Chinese vested inter-
ests, damage American trade and in-
jure the Philippine commercial pros-
pects with China.
In China Mr. Syclip learned 1of the
work being done by Frederick W.
Stevens, '87L, of Ann Arbor, who went
last November to China as the Ameri-
can representative'- in the Chinese
Consortium, an organization compos-
ed of American, British, French and
Japanese banks, which lends large
sums of money to the Chinese to con-
struct railroads and other public util-
Famine 'Conditions Improved
"Famine conditions are much better
now," he declared when asked about
the recent 'disaster. "The Chinese peo-
ple feel very grateful to the Amer-
ican people for their aid. Lack 'of
transportation was chiefly responsi-
ble for the famine, but we believe that
under the leadership of Mr. Stevens.,

roads will be built which will prevent
a similar disaster in the ,futuine.'
Mr. SyCip ispresident-, of the Yek
Hua Trading corporation of .Manila,
a large exporting and importing house
dealing in Nmerican goods. He also
practices law in that city.
Mr. SyCip came to Ann Arbor from
Manila in 1905, learned the English
language, attended Ann' Arbor' high
school and spent four years in the.
University, graduating from the Law
school in 1912. He is accompanied on
the mission by Rafael 1achuca Go-
tauco, vice-president of the Chinese

Varsity Netmen
Defeat laroons
BY 4TO 2 count
Michigan's tennis team scored an-
other victory yesterday afternoon
when the Varsity netmen defeated the
University of Chicago team 4 matches'
to 2. Even without the s'rvices of
Walter Wesbrook, the Maize and Blue
team defeated the powerful Midway
quartet headed by Segal and Vories,
the Conefrence champions. Had the
Michigan captain been in the iineup
it is highly probable that the score
would have been 6 to 0.-
Against Chicago, Michigan won
three singles matches and one du-
bles'match. . Vories and Segal' assert-
ed their supremacy in the doubles by
defeating Aligell and Munz, while
Vories won from Angell of Michigan
in singles after three sets.
Munz Beats Segal
In the number one match, Lewis
Munz of Michigan defeated Perry Se-
gal of Chicago in straight sets, 6-1,
6-4. Munz did not experience any-
where near the same trouble in de-
feating Segal yesterday that he did in
the *Conference tournament a' week
ago. On that occasion, the Michigan
player was forced to go the limit to
win 6-4, 9-7, 9-7, in the semi-final
Harry Vories won the only singles
match of the day for Chicago when he
defeated Robert Angell 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.
Albert Frankenstein proved no match
for Charle's Merkel of Michigan. The
Maize and Blue player made Tew er-
rors and the Chicago player did not
have a chance to get started with the
result that Merkel won 6-1, 6-1
The fourth singles match went to
Michigan when George Reindel Jr.,
won from' E. Hazzard 6-1, 9-7. The
first set proved to be easy for the
Wolverine with the result that he
slowed up slightly.
Vories and Segal Win ;
Michigan's first doubles team bowed
to the Conference champions, Vories
and Segal. Munz and Angell took the
first set but the Chicago team came
right back for the next two. They
had been doped to win this match.
In the last match of the afternoon
and the one which would decide
whether Michigan would win the se-
ries or whether it would end in a tie.
Reindel and Merkel of Michigan came
through and won the deciding match
only after they, had been extended
to the limit in a very close three set
rhatch. The score, 10-8, 5-7, 7-5, is an
indication of the closeness of this
contest. This match was -the closest
of the afternoon and was featured by
many long points and fl&shes of good
tennis. Toward the end it developed
into steady play on the part -of both
teams with Michigan finally winning.
Michigan women, who take out life
membership in the Women's league at
the present time, will not of course,
have the opportunity of enjoying the
use of the prospective clubhouse while

Prof. Oscar J. Campbell, of thet
English department of the University
of Wisconsin, yesterday notified Uni-#
versity authorities of his acceptance
of a professorship in the English de-
partment here. The appointment is{
to become effective with the opening,
of the first semester next fall. h
Professor Campbell is a graduate of
the University. having received his
A.B. degree with the class of 1900..
Later he took M.A. and Ph.D. degrees,
from Harvard. In 1910 he was made a
traveling fellow of Harvard and stud-
ied in the Universities of Copenhagen,
Berlin, Paris, London, and at Oxford.
Since 1911 he has been on the faculty
of the University of Wisconsin.
Through his published contributions
on the subject of English literature,
Professor Campbell has won a repu-
tation both in England and the United1
States as one of the leading scholars!
and authorities on the subject.
The appointment of, Professor
Campbell is made possible by the re-
cent increase in the mill tax income
of the University, without which any
additions to the faculty at the present
time would have been out of the ques-
Iota chapter of Sigma Gamma Ep-
silon, national scientific geological
fraternity, was installed in the Uni-

Prof. W. H. Twenhofel, of the Ufi-

dent of the fraternity, made the in-
stallation address. Iota chapter is the
outgrowth of a local geological society
which has held regular meetings for

pose the advancement of geological

they are students. However, there are
several reasons why student women t
should become life menbers of the'
league. Only by general co-operation
of all-Michigan women, both alumnae
and student, can the women students i
of the future be supplied with a socialt
center and clubhouse such as is need-
ed on the campus at present.
Alumnae members of the league will ,
be entitled to the use of, and full priv-
ileges in the new building.
League membership implies a close1
contact with the student body, thusa
it will act as a connecting link between I'
the alumna member and her Alma '
Mater. "
League literature will - keep the
alumna member in touch with the'
campus and itsvarious activities ina
the years following graduation. 1
The Women's building will be to thes
alumnae of the future, what .ihe Mich-;
igan Union is to men who have grad-'
uated from Michigan.r
The immediate reason that the cam-
paign must be carried through quick-
ly is that if the $500,000 goal, which'
must be reached before a building site
is given, is not obtained in the immed-
iate future all the available campus
