Coaches Feel That Victory Will Give
Team Added Confidence To Win
Next Two Games
Michigan meets the Ohio State base-
ball team at 4:05 o'clock today in one
of the most important games of the
season, as the coaching staff feels that
a win for Michigan would give the
team the added confidence to win the
remnaining two games, and with it the
title, while a defeat today would make
vJgtory in the remaining games much
more difficult.
TJhe loss of Edgar, is another ser-
ouis blow to the team. It was definite-
Jy, announced yesterday that he could
not play today as the stitches have
not yet been removed from his hand.
Davis will catch in place of Edgar.
The Buckeye team comes here with
a record of three games won and the
same number lost giving them a tie for L
fifth place in the Conference standing. -
The Ohio pitchers are not on a par
Wth the Michigan' pitchers, but the
Buckeyes have a number of heavy
hitters, among them Dempsey and
Tarbett who have the highest batting
averages of any of the Ohio players.
Benny Dempsey is a product of the
Detroit high schools where he made
enviable records in three major sports. V
Ohio has a double incentive to win
today. They are the only team in the
Conference who has beaten Michigan
this year. Last year it was the Wol-
verines who took the Conference title V
away from Ohio by defeating them
twice. The Ohioans already have ac-
complished their purpose once, and by
defeating Michigan again today would I
probably do the same to Michigan asp
Michigan did to Ohio a year ago.L
Sloteman will probably pitch for Ohio.I
Jablonowski Will Pitch 2
Jablonowski has been selected to
pitch the game, and the loss -of offen-L
sive strength due to the injury ofv
Edgar will be a decided handicap tos
Jablonowski. Pucklewartz, Edgar
and Oosterbaan are three of the lead-
Ing hitters in the Conference. Puckl e- a
wartz has led the Conference in batt-C
ing since the beginning of the season,
getting at least one hit in every game,
and his batting average at present is b
more than .450. Edgar's hitting in
the last three games has put him
among the leading hitters, whilev
Oosterbaan has shown gradual im-
provement all season, more noticablyd
since his home run in the first Syra-c
cuse game, Friedman will play thirda
in place of Jablonowski.i

(Special to The Daily)
EVANSTON, May 20.-Deter-
mined to win today's meet to
stay in the running for the Con-
ference championship, the Wol-
verine golf team today defeated
the Northwestern team by aI
score of 15 1-2 to 8 1-2 in a ser-
ies of matches played at the
Evanston golf course.
The Purple aggregation hadI
b~een undefeated thus far in the
season an seemed bound for
their second straight Big Ten
title, but the Michigan team
proved too strong, and although
hampered by a strong wind
which made low scores impossi-
ble, played steadily to win by a
decisive margin.
In the morning round the Pur-
ple team led the invaders by a 1 1
single point. Heppes, Northwes- I

Captain Feely, Michigan, Glover,C

The Michigan team staged a
comeback in the afternoon round
by winning 10 of the 12 possi-t

Time Alone Can Give True Answer To
Question Of The Value Of
DETROIT, May 20.-Declaring that
time alone would tell whether prohi-
bition was a wise limitation, Dr Clar-
ence Cook Little, president of the Uni-
versity of Michigan told the Wayne
County social workers conference on
prohibition that it was now possible
to argue on known facts and prove,
that the Volstead act is beneficial and
not beneficial.
"I would not say point blank how I
feel about prohibition if I were tor-
ured," Dr. Little asserted, "for I am
rying to get the facts and I propose to'
keep myself open minded.
"Recently a group of ministers in
Chicago asked me to come out square-
y for prohibition and said they would
endorse me if I did. I thanked them
and declined and I.don't intend to let
any group of ministers or group of
men in any other busiess lock my
Situation Needs Study
A whole generation of thinking, the
university president suggested, may
be necessary to obtain a true answer
to the value of prohibition. The key-
note of the problem at the present
time is intensive and impartial study,
he continued, asking his audience;
"If you are going to have explosives
is it wiser to inspect and label them
or prohibit them and then in the face
of a law you cannot enforce, allow
those explosives to be passed around,
their quality unchecked?"
"I do not believe in the breaking of
any law," Dr. Little asserted, "but the
applicability of the law and its en-
forcement are questions yet to b
solved. There are certain obvious
general facts. One is that an abso-
lute law has been laid down. Another
obvious fact is that this law has not
been absolutely enforced and still an-
other fact is that we do not kiowtwhat
it would cost in men and money to get
absolute enforcement of the prohib-
ion law."
Defends Coege Students
The college student who drinks, de-
clared Dr. Little, does so not out of
viciousness but in a spirit of bravado
or fun as he used to clothe the campus
policeman in a barrel or shy bricks
through a plate glass window.
"But," concluded Dr. Little, "prohi-
bition has certain very valuable ef-
fects. It brings out those who will
stand for a principal. It has pro-
duced worthy opponents on both sides
and developed a lot of competent men
now able to take charge of major so-
cial problems. Regardless of its fate,
it has advanced the thinking ability of
the average citizen. Prohibition today
is the great metal roof under which
we all can gather. It also may show
if our nation has reached a point
where it can consider a big question
without emotion and reach a sound
judgment. No minority has just
grounds to believe that the result of
its labor will be permanent until the
public digests the reputed values of
what a minority offers. Ihe public
must think through anything involv-
ing behavior, before a law can gain
any degree of permenancy.
"We can't 'solve the situation at
Ann Arbor with nonenforcement all
around us but we can hope to keep it
on a rational basis. It's not an emo-
tional situation. I hope for sane

equilibrium. I know there are good
guides and bad guides, and I can't be
fair unless I keep open minded. I'm
not going to climb on a moral pillar
and preach. I'm trying to get into
the hearts of my students and find out
what they think and why they think
that way. What we hope most is to
turn our students who are non-emo-
tionally inclined on the question."
