Lit-Law--Tuesday, August 20, 4:30.
The lits will dash with the engineers
Thursday afternoon at 4:30, in a game
that may decide second place in the
standing. Wheat will hurl for the en-
gineers again Thursday, and Pratt will
toss for the knights of the co-eds.
Rosenthal has issued a call for prac-
tice Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 for
the laws. He will have both of his
batteries in the field, and if some of
the other ball-tossers care to, they
can play with the law scrubs in a prac-
tice game.
The laws tumbled the engineers in-
to the cellar Saturday afternoon by a
nine to six count, in the most inter-
esting game of the series. The laws
played a good game, and deserved to
win, but it was the ragged fielding of
the engineers swhich really decided the
contest. Wheat pitched fine ball for
the losers, striking out ten jurists dur-
ing the afternoon, but his men made
fourteen boodles behind him, which
threw the game away.
The oengineers out-hit the laws, get-
ting fourteen solid hits off Kennedy,
including a triple and three doubles,
but wild base running prevented their
hits from amounting to much in a
scoring way. Wheat held the legis-
lators to nine hits, which were well
scattered, as only twice did two of the
hits occur in the same frame.
Kennedy was not forced to extend
himself, as he had excellent support,
and the engineers ran as wild as
March hares when they got on the
paths. In the first inning he pulled
down three strike-outs, but with his
team getting runs steadily, Kennedy
let his fielders work. The engineers
bunched four solid clouts in both the
sixth and seventh, but could only net
three and two runs respectively. Af-
ter this little carnival, Kennedy tight-
ened up and struck out two men, and
threw out the other in the eighth. He
gave a hit in the ninth, with two down,
but was not in danger.
Blake's men were not all out, and
Brodie played center for him, while
Cooper and Stoddard, of the laws, dec-
orated second and right, respectively.
Fox was put in at short, but this prov-
ed to be a mistake. Fox played the
best game in the gardens yet shown
in the series, while adorning left in
the medic-engineer game, but in the
unfamiliar position on the infield he
contributed five muffs, which were a
big factor in the result.
Errors gave the laws two runs to
start the game. DeRoy opened the
festivities by whiffing. Norcop's life
weas saved when Blake failed to have
his foot on the bag, and he scored on
Jansen's double to center. Spikes
popped to short, Jansen scored on a
passed ball, and Cook struck out.
Kennedy opened up strong, striking
out the first three men to face him,
Wheat, Morse, and Craig. In the sec-
ond inning it was wild base running
b, the engineers that saved him. Blake
opened up with a single to left, and
look second on Brodie's clout to cen-
ter. Waterworth had reached the ball,
and was ready to throw, as Blake

reached the keystone, but the track
man dashed on to third, and was
caught flat footed. A quick play, Nor-
cop to Cook, doubled Brodie, who was
ifraid to soil his trousers in the mud.
Kennedy threw out Fox, which retired

the side on five pitched balls, with
two singles included.
The lavslad annexed another in
their hai. Watrworthoani Fold lad
struck out, when Blake dropped the
ball on Bauman. Kennedy was given
a walk and stole second, Bauman hav--'
ing reached third in the meantime.
Bauman scored on DeRoy's hit to
right, but Kennedy was out trying to
take two corners on the single.
Neither side tallied in the third
frame. Fox gave Norcop a free trial,
but Morse threw him out trying to
burglarize. Jansen struck out. Spikes
hit to center, but was caught off the
bag by Wheat and Blake. For the en-
gineers, Cooper struck out. Stodard
sas safe on Fold's offense, hot Bao-
maonthrew hmnout in an attempted
larceny. Emmos also whffed.
The laws maintained their average

Owing to the difficulty in securing
boxes for the straw vote, The Wol-
verine manager was unable to place
the boxes in the buildings until this
morning, and hence cannot publish
any returns in this issue. The boxes
are now in place, however, and the
returns will be published in Thurs-
day's issue.
In order that the straw vote may
representative of the campus at large,
the women members of the student
body and the members of the faculty
are especially urged to vote.
To aid further in getting a repre-
sentative vote, special ballots have
been printed. These can be secured
at the cigar stand at the Michigan
Union, from members of the Wolver-
ine staff, or at The Wol erine office,
Press Building, Maynard street. These,
together with the ballots which are
being printed in The Wolverine; are
the only ballots which will be counted.
All ballots must be deposited in the
ballot boxes placed in University hall,
the law building, economics building,
new engineering building, the Michi-
gan Union, and The Wolverine office.
Members of The Wolverine staff will
not accept ballots.
Voters must give their treasurer's
receipt number and indicate in which
state they reside. In addition to com-
plying with these rules, members of
the faculty must give their names and
are requested to write the word "fac-
ulty," and women members of the stu-
dent body are asked to write the word

"women" on their ballots.
President H. S. Hulbert of the Wood-
row Wilson club has informed The
Wolverine that the Wilson club is or-
ganized to work for the Princeton can-
didate, and it is hoped that the sup-
porters of the other aspirants will
draw out the vote in favor of their

of individuals, and to describing them
in a systematic manner."

"If sociology and religion come to
IPrC tieOdO,,.1 5 ,.rL f Vn s t

a mutual understanding and learn to
avoid trespassing on each other's ter-
ritory, tsey can be very helpful to
each other," said Prof. F. . Clow yes-
terday afternoon, iso his lecure nti-
tied "Relation of Sociology to Relig-
ion." "Through religion, sociology
can get an insight into the deeper cur-
rents of human life. Through sociolo-
gy, religion can get a better under-
standing of the sinful world which it
is trying to save, and of the istr-
mentalities by which it may be saved.
Sociology freely admits the great pa,
religion plays in society as a human
institution. It has been the means by
which people have been unified, have
received their standards of morals,
their' ideals of life."
Sociology, according to Prof. Clow,
is a science-the science of society.
Its purpose is to use the method of
sciennce and analyze the system of re-
lations which we observe to exist be-
tween people in their various forms of
organization from the small primary
group up to the largest of all, the hu-
man race. The sociologist is compell-
ed, as a scientist, to regard religions
as institutions, and therefore religious
.beliefs, as a part of the natural order
of things, and to be accounted for in
the same way as political and idus-
trial institutions. We may look for the
social conditions which led to the es-
tablishment of an order of priests, just
as much as for the conditions which
led to the establishment of an order
of nobility, or a class of capitalists.
"There is small likelihood that sci-
ence will ever be so extended as to
drive religion off the earth" said Prof.
Clow. "It now and then compels re-
ligion to make readjustments, to give
up some old dogmas,-but as the sci-
entists slowly widen the area they oc-
cupy, the theologians, like the meta-
physicians, simply pull out stakes,
and move a little farther out into th
area that is still unknown. We may
never expect to see them surrounded
and forced to surrender to the sci-
entists. The crux of the whole mat-
ter is this: religion purports to be of
supernatural origin; science restricts
it view to the natural. Science and
sociology as a science have nothing to
do with the question of the 'absolute
or 'Ultimate reality.' As our minds
cannot live on science alone, as they
must have visions, mysteries, images
of things 'that never were on sea or
land,' religion will always hold its
place in the field of the supernatural,
as sociology in its distinct realm will
merely seek to trace the sequence of
events as far as they can be accounted
for by natural causes."
In the evening Professor Clow spoke
on "The Study of The Individual." Ie
prophesied that in the near future the
central science will deal with the indi-
vidual, his life from the embryonic
stage through childhood, youth, middle
age, and old age.
"This study of the human individu-
al," said Professor Clow, "in propor-
tion as it develops into a science, a
sort of synthetic philosophy in which
all the other sciences wil have their
proper places, from which all the phil-
osophies and all the arts will have to
take their bearings. It will be the
pinnacle of the tree of knowledge.
"This modern study of the individu-
al will be as distinct from philosophy
as physics is today, wil forego all
consideration of the soul, or immortal-
ity, or the body-mind problem, and
will confine itself to the more modest
task of discovering the uniformities of
co-existence and sequence in the lives

Racket-Wielders Create Exitemnent
in First Round of Fest; t
Blako Collects,
The tennis tournament is well under
way and a number of matches have
been run off. All men who have not
yet played their preliminaries should
report to Blake at once. The returns1
for all matches and the fees, unless<
given to Blake on the fields, must be
turned in at the office of The Wolver-
ine Wednesday afternoon from 12:30
to 2:00 o'clock, or the men will not be
eligible for the second round of play.
The schedule of the second round will
be published in Thursday's issue of
The Wolverine.
The following matches have beens
Rankin & Edwarobs won from Sproat
& Ehers 6-1, 5-7, 6-3.
Ehlers won from Chen 7-5, 6-2.
Sproat won from Spencer 4-6, 9-7,
Stoddard won from Grimme 7-5,
McLeod won from Jansen 6-3, 6-3.
The following are matched to play
the second round in the singles Tues-
day afternoon: Ehler vs. Stoddard
Sproat vs. McLeod. The following
doubles teams should report Wednes-
day afternoon: McLeod and Wilkin-
son; Stoddard and Bolin; Wright and'
Jansen; Brown and Collette; Feible-
mann and Grimme; Chen and Tong;
Kao and Wang.
The following men should report to
play off the preliminaries in the sin-
gles: Feiblemann, Wright, Brown,
Houston, Rankin, Fiedell, Craig, De-
Camp, Wilkinson, Gandhi, Darnell.
Any others who wish to enter the tour-
nament must do so at once.
The match played by Grimme and
Stoddard Monday afternoon was ex-
tremely interesting, the court being
rather slow, due to the recent rains,
they played a lobbing game, which is
the most tiring style of play. The
games were close all the way through,
and it was after a severe struggle that
Stoddard annexed the two sets.
The doubles played by Edwards and
Rankin versus Ehlers and Sprout
brought out many grand-stand flashes.
Sprout and Ehlers were evidently off
form in the first set, but came back
victors in the second set. The match
was won by the exceptionally strong
playing of Edwards.
McLeod and Jansen played a couple
of very good sets. They showed the
lack of practice, which the weather
man deprived them of. All the other
matches showed very good tennis at
times, but the wet grounds made them
rather slow and uncertain.

Invitations have been sent out to
the candidates for the 1912 football
team of the U iversity of Michigan.
The preliminary work this year will
be held on Ferry Field. For as number
of years the candidates have gathered
at Whitmore Lake for their early
training and practice, but with the
completion of the new clubhouse on
Ferry Field, the latter place has been
chosen on account of its shower baths,
rubbing tables, drying rooms for cloth-
es, etc. The gridiron on Ferry
Field will eliminate the sore feet and
sprained ankles occasioned by the
rough ground a Whitmore. The use
of Ferry Field will also make possible
the training of a greater number of
men. It is planned to have thirty-five
or forty receive their preliminary
training under Coach Yost, Trainer
Farrell and the assistant coaches.
This year's football schedule is as
hard as any during the past six years
and in order for the Maize and Blue
to defeat Pennsylvania and Cornell,
every man on the squad must exert
himself to the limit of his ability. The
candidates will report for work Tues-
day morning, September 17th.
Mtichigan's footsall schedule for
1912 is as follows:
Oct. 5--Case Shool at Ann Arbor.
Oct. 12---M. A. C. at Anna Arbor.
Oct. 19-Ohio State at Columbus.
Oct. 26 Syracuse at Syracuse.
Nov. 2-Open (at Ann Arbor).
Nov. 9-Pennsylvaia at Philadel-
Nov. l6th-Cornell at Ann Arbor.
