Billie Takes ath IN BASEBALIL g[[A

Whether lie wanted to display his
manly form to the gallery of admiring
females, or whether he couldn't stand
the heat, doesn't enter into the affair
at all. The main issue was that "Billie"
Brown, '18, floated up to the dock at
the boat house clad in swimming at-
tire, holding his clothes in his arms.
The bugs fluttered around the electric
lights, the player-piano ground out
ragtime for a score of perspiring
dancers, and lemonade glasses tinkled
in the pavilion.
The canoe wasn't exceptionally tipsy
and for that matter, neither was "Bill."
But no canoe will stand being bumped
headlong into a landing without a pro-
test. This one protested vigorously,
with the result that Billie, clothes, and
all. staged a very presentable imita-
tion of the new German submarine
liner. After entangling himself from
the weeds that infested the bottom, he
arose to the surface with much splash-
ing and gnashing of teeth, as a chorus
of feminine laughter greeted his debut.
How "Billie" got home enters not at
all into the story. Next time he goes
canoeing, so he declares, he's going in
a row-boat.
The second semester of the summer
session of the Law School opened yes-
terday with the enrollment of seven
new students. The departure of four
students leaves the total number at
174. Prof. .William H. Page, of Ohio
State University, and Professor Harry
S. Richards of the University of Wis-
consin, are leaving with the close of
this semester. Professor Richards,
vrho conducted the course on equity jur-
isprudence, was presented with a pipe
by the students of his class. One of
the new subjects of the second semes-
ter is the course on trusts, given by
Prof. Wesley Newcomb Hohfeld, of
Yale University.
Students Offered Course in Gardening
Students who wish to become pro-
ficient as practical landscape garden-
ers by working around the campus
planting trees, shrubs, and flowers,,
may do so by electing course 7 in the
botany department, under Professor
Gleason. It is not known whether the
course will be continued in the fall.

League Reduced to Three Teams; C
A. Brown, '17L, Was Appointed
At a meeting of the executive board
of the interdepartmental baseball
league last night, it was decided to re-
duce the size of the league to three
teams for the present, and later tc
two, if necessary. The law and sci-
ence teams have been combined and
C. A. Brown, '17L, appointed manager,
This team will be given a week to or-
ganize and if by that time sufficient re-
sults are not shown, it will be dropped
from the schedule. There will be two
games between the engineer and lit
aggregations this week, one Tuesday
and one Thursday.
The manager of the all-campus team
is attempting to schedule a third
game with the Ypsi Normalites for
this week but has received no word
from the Normal management as yet.
The game will be played either Wed-
nesday or Thursday of this week, if
scheduled, probably at Ann Arbor. The
mid-week date is necessitated by the
fact that the Ypsi school closes its ses-
sion Thursday. Negotiations are also
in progress for games with "Chuck"
Webber's Third ward team and with
.the Cleary Business College aggrega-
tion from Ypsilanti
About twelve students of the Li-
brary department left Saturday morn-
ing for Detroit, where they visited
the main library and two of its branch-
es. The trip was made for the pur-
pose of gathering information valu-
able to students in practical work.
Several lectures were given by the
heads of the departments, and a gen-
eral outline of the work was explain-
ed. The party were entertained at
luncheon by the library staff. They
were chaperoned by Prof. Frank Good-
rich, of that department.
