Philosophy Head Throws Interesting
Light Upon llographer's
"James Boswell was no silly fool.
He was a man of prominence, edu-
cation, and authority in his own time."
Thus did Professor R. M. Wenley ex-
plain his fellow countryman before
a large audience in the natural sci-
ence building yesterday when he lec-
tured upon the subject of "Boswell."
By giving a short biography of
the life of Boswell, Professor Wenley
showed how the famous biographer
possessed the faculty of making him-
self liked by all classes of people and
especially by the geniuses of the
time. From the time that Boswell
entered upon his career as a student
of law at Edinburg University, he
possessed that wonderful faculty of
making himself persona gratia to the
scholars of the time. By the time he
was 23 years of age he knew many of
the bigger 'literary lights of the Brit-
ish world.
On the 16th of May in 1763, Boswell
met with the greatest event of his life.
He was introduced to Dr. Samel
Johnston. A short time after this
momentuous meeting, he left for
travel on the continent and wandered
from court to court until at last he
came to the island of Corsica. Here he
wrote a book on his adventures on this
island whicl is considered by authori-
ties today as one of the most interest-
ing of its kind. He was liked by all
the great personages with whom he
came in contact.
On his return to Scotland Boswell
began the practice of law but, on ac-
count of his associations with many
actors in Edinburg, he gained the dis-
pleasure of his associates at the bar.
A short tine after that Boswell was
made a member of the Literary Soci-
ety, a membership which was com-
posed of such men as Johnston, Gold-
smith, Richardson, Garrick, and Gib-
bon. In this society Boswell was es
teemed as one of the most liked of
its members, being liked for his jolly
frankness and 'cheerfulness.
In conclusion Prof. Wenley showed
that Boswell produced books which
are well worth reading: the Corsican
adventures, and then of course, the im-
mortal life of Johnston. Then he was
1 esteemed by the society in which he
- lived a gentleman and a scholar, and
. this distinction was a tribute to the
- man for the society of the period was
1 most birlliant.
r New York, July 25.-Chairman Wil-
1 liam R. Willeox, of the Republican na-
d tional campaign committee, on his re-
turn from Bridgehaenpton today, said
. that the itinerary of Mr. Hughes' ap-
proaching western trip has virtually
- been determined, but the announce-
d ment would be delayed until it could
be so arranged that in going to the
n Rocky Mountains for a week's recrea-
s tion the candidate would not be com-
l pelled to deviate to any extent from
his speaking route,.

Coach Lundgsen and Captain Labadie
Responsible for Success of
1916 Baseball Team
A green team, a weak box staff, the
most disastrous southern trip in the
history of Michigan baseball, a slow
rounding to form, and a final rush that
carried Pennsylvania, M. A. C. and
Notre Dame powerless before it, such
is the story of Michigan's 1916 base-
ball season, a season that would go
down as the worst a Maize and Dine
diamond squad had ever undergone
were it not for that glorious finish.
As it stands, it speaks wonders for
Coach Lundgren as a developer of
green material.
The coach began the season with
but three veterans, Captain Labadie,
Elmer Brandell, and "Bill" Niemann.
These men all began operations in the
outfield, thus giving the team an ab-
solutely green inner defense and bat-
tery staff. Constant experimenting
and changing was necessary and it
was not until the fag end of the
season that the lineup was finally
decided upon. Of the four men who
started at the infield positions against
Georgia, not one occupied the same
place during the final series against
Notre Dame. The outfield was in a
constant state of upheaval and the en-
tire hurling burden was carried for
the greater part of the season by two
men, "Joe" Robbins and "Shortie"
Miller. At the backstop position,
"Duke" Are'ntz looked to have his job
nailed down at the beginning of the
season, but was soon forced to re-
linquish the title of first-string catcher
to "Morrie" Dunne, who thereupon
proceeded to develop into one of the
most efficient handlers of the big mitt
that a Wolverine team has boasted i
many a moon.
The team got away badly, being
forced to start on the southern trip
with but two days of outdoor practice.
This lack of practice was easily ap-
parent throughout the entire trip, the
infield being absolutely lost on bunts
and fly balls. Six defeats and one
draw was the final toll of the Dixie-
land jaunt, winding up with a 14 to f
rout at the hands of Notre Dame. The
team, on its return to Ann Arbor, pro-
ceeded to entrench itself against the
big games of the season by raising the
scalps of such aggregations as Olivet,
Kalamazoo, Case, and Ypsi Normal.
However, both Syracuse and Cornell
cored shut outs at Ann Arbor and
the Wolverines were forced to go 14
innings to a 1 to 1 tie with the Kazoo
Normal. Then came the eastern trip.
marking the beginning of the final
drive. Two games had been lost to
the Orangemen and one to Cornell
when the nine seemed to suddenly
come together, and the Ithacans were
set down 4 to 2. The next day there
was a temporary reverse before the
game Garnet crowd from Swarthmore
and then the final string of four vie-

Lits and Laws to Play Off Game
Postponed Because of Rain
Last Thursday
This afternoon on South Ferry Field
the scientists and the engineers lock
horns in their first meet of the sum-
mer league. The engineers ought to
be able to handle their opponents very
easily as they have been showing good
form so far, and their team will be
strengthened by the return of "Turk"
Turner, who has been out of town for
some time.
The scientists and the laws have
been unable to make much of a show-
ing up to date as they have been han-
dicapped by the fact that scant in-
terest has been shown in turning out
for the teams. This is an extraordin-
ary occurrence for the laws, as here-
tofore they have always had the big-
gest turnout of any department.
On Wednesday afternoon the lits
and laws will play off the game that
was called last Thursday, on account
of rain. Robins will probably mount
the mound for the lits.

Yps Normal No Match for Brand of
Ball Which (le(ampus Stars,
Band Them
Outclassing their opponents in
every department of the game, the all-
campus baseball team Saturday after-
noon took the Ypsi Normal crew into
camp by a ocore of 9 to 4. "Wallie"
Niemann, pitching in superb form for
the Wolverines, held the Teachers to
four scattered hits and whiffed 11 per-
spiring Normalite batsmen. After the
first half of the first inning, the down-
river boys never had a look-in at the
final laurel leaves. The Michiganders
slammed out ten hits, Brown and Cut-
ting donating doubles and "Dick"
Gardner poling out a four-cushion
wallop. "Toad" Brown and "Lefty"
Brilmeyer were the hitting stars of
the day, each garnering two blows.
The Wolverine bombardment began
in the first frame. Brown, first man
up, walked. Brewer singled and
Brown pulled up at the third corner.
Brilmeyer drew a free pass and the
sacks were loaded. Gardner then
dropped a long fly in the center-field
well and Brown scored on the throw-
in, the other two men moving up dur-
ing the excitement. Gracey popped
out to the pitcher but Hole, the Nor-
mal hot-corner guardian, bobbled Nie-
mann's roller and Brewer galloped
over the pan. Cutting flied out to

mann fanned but Cutting doubled,

himself a few seconds later when

Uncertain Weather Does Not Frighten
Away Friends of Shakespeare
From Last Performances
Threatening weather could not dis-
courage lovers of-the stage from at-
tending the third and fourth perform-
ances by the Ben Greet Players on
last Saturday, and the acting was in-
deed worthy of the large audience
which was there.
"As You Like It," which is especial-
ly adapted to outdoor presentation,
was played in the afternoon, and Miss
Kearns carried the role of Rosalind
or Ganymede, perfectly, concealing a
very womanly heart under her man's
In the evening the company gave

"Romeo and Juliet," with Mr. Somnes
and Miss Kearns in the title roles. The
whole presentation showed the marks
of hard training, and the balcony
scene and the scene at the tomb of
Juliet were especially realistic. Mr.
Somnes shows great ability in inter-
preting tragic roles, and played the
part of the love-crazed Romeo with
much feeling.
