Poor hitting and Fielding Ability
Spells, Defeat for Wolverines lin
Seconds Game of Season
Miserable fielding and inability to
hit in the pinches spelled defeat for
the all-campus team Saturday after-
noon when it faced the Vpsi Normals
in the second game of the series, the
Teachers winning out by a 9 to 5
score. Turner, for the Wolverines,
pitched magnificent ball and would
have won hands down had he received
any sort of support from his team-
mates. The wily "Turk" fanned 15
men, allowed 7 hits, and issued but
one base on balls during his stay in
the box., He was forced to retire in
the eighth inning on account of the
heat and "Wallie" Niemann took up
the hurling Bturden, allowing two hits
and no runs and sending two ambitious
batsmen back to the bench in his one
round on the hill.
Brown and Hole, leadoff men for
their respective teams, copped the
flail records for the game, each getting
a triple and two singles in five times
at bat. "Ernie" Rynearson, the big
Normal first-sacker, also slammed out
a triple, a sizzling drive into the the
gully in right field.
Niemann, the Wolverine captain,
shifted his men constantly in an ef-
fort to construct a somewhat less
sievey defense, but his labors proved
vain. Practically every inning was
on orgy of errors. A typical round
was the third, when the Normalites
garnered two counters on one hit and
a series of brainstorms by the Wol-
verines. Oliver, the first man up,
struck out. Wiltse singled. Reed
bunted to Turner, who chucked the

Lark With Bryan;
Peace, War, Grips
"Everything comes to him who
waits" is a very fine maxim, but it's
always a good plan to go half-way
to meet anything that looks good. At
least such is the opinion of "Bull"
McMahon, '16, and "Square" Deahl, '16,
who got on an innocent looking train
for Detroit Saturday night. There-
fore when a certain portly individual
boarded the train at Ypsilanti, the
boys made no ado about making them-
selves known. "How do you do, Mr.
Bryan?" said McMahon, with all the
abandon which characterizes the meet-
ings of great with great, "Do you re-
member me?" "No," said Mr. Bryan
with customary frankness, "I can't
say that I do." Mr. McMahon display-
ed his usual generosity in forgiving
a fault and explained, "Well you see
I was in the audience at Hill audi-
torium when you spoke there a year
or so ago." Whereupon the ice was so
succesfully broken that an astonish-
ing flood of conversation flowed forth.

lowed hot on the heels of the Press
and Germany, whereas "Peace At Any
Price"-well we won't go into details
about that.
At Detroit the boys modestly sought
their own ways, but they were recalled
to help the Honorable W. J. with his
suitcases. The passage through the
station was especially to be remem-
bered by all who witnessed it. The

ence and courtesy so common to uni-
versity men, the young gentlemen as-
sisted the great man into his taxi,
and left him for other pleasures.
Except for a slight intellectual in-
digestion the young men seem none
the worse off for their adventure, and
on being interviewed, they admittef
that in all probability the experience
would make no immediate change it

Prof. A. S. Whitney Lectures on Solu-
tions of Problem of Religion
in Public Schools
By putting swimming pools in the
basements of churches and running
moving pictures showing Bible scenes
is the solution of the problem of non-
religious American youth offered by
Prof. A. S. Whitney in his lecture on
"Religion, the Church, the Bible, and
the Public Schools,' given yesterday
afternoon in the Science auditorium.
"Every child is, essentially re-
ligious," stated Professor Whitney at
the beginning of his lecture. "The an-
cients recognized this fact and taught
religion with general instruction in
their schools. Not till the time of
Luther was religion separated from
the public schools," said the lecturer,
in describing the modern institution of
a non-religious public school.
Professor Whitney quoted statistics
when showing how the modern youth
is essentially non-moral in character.
One of the investigations conducted by
the department of education showed
t that 90 per cent. of an honor class
cheated in examinations.
L In talking of the use of the Bible
in the public schools the speaker
awoved the fact that many of the Eng-
lish writers of modern times, like
Browning, Carlyle, Ruskin, Emerson,
and Tennyson, depended upon the
Bible for inspiration in their writings.
How is the teach to explain them
unless he can go to the passage in the
Bible and show the relation? This
was the question presented by the lec-
The question that has perplexed
modern sociologists, the one of amuse-
ment for the laboring man on Sunday,
was solved by Professor Whitney in
three ways. They are as follows
1. Shorten hours of labor.
2. Limit all athletic activities to
week days.
3. Use the continental plan of using
the morning for worship and the aff-
ternoons for innocent amusement.
In concluding Professor Whitney
said that the Bible, although it is not
allowed in public schools, yet the
teachers should teach the youth both
morals and a respect for religion, and
they should all endeavor to overlap the
others in all lines of social work.
