Teams T : Play Today
A 15 inning dogfight, which includ-
ed everything from brilliant pitching
to a jumbled batting order, proved
fruitless to Michigan's improved base-
ball team yesterday as Purdue dumped
the Wolverines 3 to 2 in a hotly con-
'tested extra inning battle.
Climaxed by a heated dispute in the
final inning, when Purdue inadver-
tently mixed up its batting order, the
game found Michigan getting good
pitching, 14 hits, and still failing in
the game's numerous clutches.
Fifteenth Is Wild
The 15th was a wild and confused
affair. "Johnny Vernow, Purdue's left
fielder, led off and sailed into one of

Ed Andronik's fast balls, slapping a
long home run into left. Jim Thomp-
son and Joe Waling singled; and then
came the cause celebre.
Vernon had batted out of turn.
Art Bredewater should-have led off,
and thus the Boilermakers had skip-
ped a man in their batting order.
The decision didn't help the Wol-
verine cause. The rule book states
that only if the mistake is discovered
before a ball is pitched to the next
batter is the hit discounted. The
Wolverines had unfortunately, found
out three hitters late.
Is Fourth Big Ten Loss
Purdue's Coach Dutch Fehring, ob-
viously distressed at the regretful
turn of events, offered to have his side
retired, but the umpires clung to the
rules, and it was finally decided that
(1) Bredewater, who had missed his
turn at bat, was out; (2) Vernon's
home run and Thompson's single
would fount; and (3) Waling, batting
out of turn when the faux pas was
discovered, would also be declared

This fact, gleaned from replies

where they must be in by 10:30 p.m.
Urban colleges with relatively few

the 'campus were noticeably more len-

Defeats Flint Central Tam
By Defending Bi-cameral
State Legi sltive Form
Maintaining that the bicameral sys-
tem provides for a more representa-

tive Big Rapids High School team
was unanimously named winner over
Flint Central in the finals of the 21st
annual Michigan High School Foren-
sic Association Contest last night in
Hill Auditorium before a crowd of
The subject debated was: "Re-
solved, That the Several States Should
Adopt a Unicameral System of Legis-
The debate centered about two is-
sues: adequate consideration of legis-
lation and true representation of pop-
ular will. The Big Rapids team repre-
sented by John Mangrum, Plyna Gil-
christ and Dan Siler held that a uni-
cameral system would not provide for
a presentation of local and state-wide
interests and that all attempts at uni-
cameral legislative systems had failed.
They also pointed out that unica-
meralism would hardly be adaptable
to the diverse interests of the several
states and that the criticisms leveled
at the bicameral system were of a
procedural nature and inherent in
any legislative set-up.
The affirmative team from Flint
Central High School, composed of
Douglas Woody, Helen Stevenson and
William Siegel, argued that the very
existence of a second house prevent-
ed adequate discussion and delibera-
tion of proposed measures.
Mr. Woody, the first speaker for
Flint Central, based his team's con-
tention on: inevitable jealousy be-
tween the two houses, an inherent

GilUreth Addresses 5,000
Students in Convocation
To Honor Best Scholars
More than 5,000 people gathered
in Hill. Auditorium for the 15th an-
nual Honors Convocation yesterday
to hear Dr. Lillian M. Gilbreth, con-
sulting engineer and educator, discuss
research and urge its importance as
a field of activity for the 800 honor
students present.
"Each of you who gather here to-
day for the Honors Convocation,
which is your recognition, have dem-
onstrated that you can do a job

and do it well," Dr. Gilbreth said.
"You cannot be the smallest part of
a great University like this, for the
shortest length of time, if you are at
all impressionable, in the best sense
of that word, without sensing, if you
do not realize, that there is work to
be done iri the world, and that it is
the job of each of us to help where
we can."
Dr. Gilbreth told the students they
"live here in a flexible framework
of thinking, that adjusts itself to
changes that mean progress, but is
firm enough to give support. You
are exposed to a philosophy of life
that presents many and varied
schools of thought, but accepts find-
ings that indicate that life is worth
living, interesting and worth carry-
ing on and passing on. To be where
you are today, you must have learned
to live in this framework effectively
and happily."
Turning to the history of research,
Dr. Gilbreth stated that "it has as-
sembled facts that, without it, would
have been lost or disregarded, and it
