Poor Baserunning on Part of Michigan
Helps Pennsy to Win
1 to 0)
The Fates frowned hard upon
George Sisler yesterday and although
the stellar Wolverine southpaw pitch-
ed as good, if not better, ball than
his worthy rival, Captain Imlay of
Pennsylvania, the goddess of baseball
luck chose to favor his opponent, and
the Quaker aggregation left Ann Ar-
bor last night gloating over a hard
fought 1 to o victory in the last game
of the series, in which the Phila-
delphians carried off honors in two
out of three contests.
It wasn't all Sisler's fault that he
lost nor was it all Imlay's fault that
he won, although the interest center-
ed chiefly about these two premier
twirlers of collegiate baseballdom. At
critical moments the Quaker players
braced up and gave their pitcher ad-
mirable support while he extended
himself to the limit. On the other
hand the fact that Michigan didn't
score was due largely to exceptionally
poor base running at the most favor-
able opportunities..
Poor Base Running.
The worst offenses came in the
ninth when it began to look as if
Michigan would score. Sisler the first
to bat singled, but when Webber pop-
ped a high one to Wallace, the Wol-
verine twirler was somewhere in the
vicinity of second base, and the Quak-
ers scored an easy double play. Then
Baker singled and went to second
when Toomey dropped Sheehy's
grounder but the Quakers recovered
the ball in time to find Baker half way
between second and third. After duck-
ing back and forth half a dozen times
Imlay nabbed him and what had be-
gun like a splendid rally, fizzled.
For six inning the two teams bat-
tIed without a single score, with three
hits chalked against Imlay and two
against Sisler. In the seventh Toomey
drew a base on balls and went to sec-
and on Gordon's sacrifice. A scratch
hit by Glendenning sent Toomey to
third and then came the big surprise
of the afternoon. Imlay dribbled to-
wards Sisler and the Wolverine pit-
cher made his first.infield error of the
season, while Toomey galloped across
the plate with the first and only tally
of the game.
Gets Out of 'ight Places.
Michigan had several opportunities
to score, getting men on the third bag
three times, but Imlay proved equal to
the occasion, and especially in the first
and fourth innings pulled himself out
of tight holes by masterly pitching.
The fourth inning saw another
specimen of poor work on the has
when the Quakers pulled off the an-
cient kid-day trick of hiding the ball.
Baker singled and managed to get to
third but during an argument with
the umpire, Coryell hid the ball in his
glove and when Baker led off the bag,
the third baseman tapped him on the

But Commencement Speaker Sees
Signs of (ertl.in Deselopment of

The new 1ill .Auditorium witnessed
its first Commencement, and the Uni-
versity of Michigan its sixty-ninth
when President Hutchins conferred
degrees upon 1086 members of the
class of 191; this morning at the close
of the address by George Edgar Vin-

of Minnesota.

Crude Pen of C(ib Reporter Replaced
by Exemplary Exactitude of
Future Newspaper Woman,
No longer are the women of the uni-
versity to see their official statements
distorted and twisted at the hands of
a cub reporter. No more shall' the
crude hand of mere man depict the
fairy dances at Barbour gym or the
joyous games at Palmer field. Hence-
forth these are to be portrayed with
true feminine grace and accuracy. In
its appeal to the feminine heart the
Daily will now vie with the Delineator
and Butterick's fashions or even Laura
Jean's responses. To the rising tide
for woman's rights the press it-
self has succumbed. There is to be
a women's editor on the Daily.
At its last meeting of the year the
board in control of student publica-
tions acting on a petition from the
Women's league, granted the women of
the university a permanent half col-
umn in the Daily. This column is to
be under the exclusive control of an
editor chosen from the women by a
committee composed of two members
of Stylus and the managing editor of
the Daily. A temporary office is to
be established in Barbour gym and
here all copy will be prepared. It is
thought that by this scheme the inter-'
ests of the women in the university
will be best subserved.

"A strong faculty is the greatest

securing such a faculty than it does in
erecting new buildings."
These remarks by Hon. Charles N.

Michigan, coming after congratula-'
