Irving M. Fenell, Literary Student
Drowned at Bend of Stream
About 3:00 O'clock
Body Found 15 Minutes After Accident
But Resuscitation Efforts
Another name was added to the al-
ready long list of victims of the Hur-
on, when Irving M. Fenell, of Greens-
burg, a student in the summer session
of the literary department, was
drowned at the bend, a half-mile above
the boat-house, Saturday afternoon,
shortly after 3:00 o'clock.
When interviewed by a Wolverine
reporter at the scene of the accident,
Owen Clowes, Fenell's companion in
the mishap, gave the following ex-
planation of the occurence:
"We were at the bend, just above
the boat-house. Fenell was paddling
in the stern and I was in the front.
He didn't know much about a canoe,
and in trying to keep the boat straight,
he took a wide stroke on his right
side. He must have taken too big a
stroke, for he -lost his balance, the
canoe tipped over and we both went
into the water. It was way over our
heads, so we both held onto the canoe.
I guess Fenell got tired out, as the
canoe kept turning over and over, and
suddenly he let go and sank and
didn't come up again."
The body was under the water fully
15 minutes before it could be located,
and after that was done, 10 minutes
were spent in getting it to the sur-
face. This was finally accomplished
by means of a grappling hook in the
hands of Harold Stimpson of this city.
The pulmotor was then sent for, and
Stimpson, Fowler Osborne, and Arthur
M. Stull, a friend of Fennell's, worked
over the body for over an hour with-
out success.
Penell was a graduate of the Ind-
iana Normal college of Pennsylvania,
and was here taking special work in
the literary department. It was the
first time either man had been cano-
ing, and the accident was due more
to their ignorance of the way to
handle a canoe, than to their inability
to swim.
The body was sent home Sunday af-
ternoon, by way of the Michigan Cen-
tral railroad.
This is the second student drown-
ing of the year on the Huron.
Recent press notices state that Cecil
Ferguson, star Varsity pitcher for two
seasons, has signed with the Detroit
Tigers and has already donned the un-
iform of that team. It is not definitely
known wether "Fergy" will be given
a chance to pitch in the near future or
not, but it is expected that he will re-
ceive careful training under the Tiger
coaches and the best there is in him
brought to the surface.
During the first week of the summer
ession approximately 15 patients per
ay have received treatment at the uni-
ersity health service. This average
s far below that which is maintained
uring the regular school year. Dr. H.
.Cummings supervises the treatment

f men students and is being assisted
Dr. Drury.

Directors Arranged Schedule of Eight
(games for All Teams Exce it
Directors of the Vacation league
met Monday evening and drew up a
15 game schedule for the four teams
which will enter the campus race, and
accepted a challenge from the Ypsi-
lanti Normal team for two games.
Pending the approval of the tossers
down the Huron, a Friday game will
be staged in Ypsilanti late this month,
and the Normalites will appear oms
Ferry field either Aug. 7 or 14. "Tom"
Soddy and "Jack" Benton, Varsity
battery, will be on hand for the Mich-
iganders, and with Captain Labdie,
will form a nucleus around which the
class of the various departmental
teams will be woven into an aggre-
gation which should give the Normal
stars a strong argument.
In the Vacation league, the medics,
whose scholastic work closes two
weeks earlier than lits and engineers,
and three weeks ahead of the laws,
will play the other teams two games.
The three remaining teams, however,
will meet each other three times.
As the medics can only play Satur-
days, two double headers will be neces-
sary, but these contests will be but
ive-round affairs; while all league
games wil be restricted to seven
stanzas, barring ties.
Owing to the law examinations, the
lit team will play a double header on
July 24, meeting both medics and
engineers. Saturday games will be
called at two o'clock, and Wednesday
frays at 4:15.
"Tom" Robertson has been appoint-
ed manager of the medics, and stu-
dents of the pharmacy, dental and
medical departments are requested to
get in touch with him at once, if they
wish to play. Labadie is leading the
laws, Benton piloting the engineers,
and McFarlan has charge of the hits.
Owing to the absence of Athletic
Director Bartelme from the city over
the holidays, the league officials were
unable to ascertain just how much
encouragement the authorities would
give the Vacation league. It is an-
ticipat'd, however, that balls will be
provided; and the use of the Varsity
diamond offered to the league, at least
for the game with Ypsilanti.
The laws and hits will meet in the
first game tomorrow afternoon at
4:15 o'clock.
