DR. GEORGE A. MAY TO UMPIRE
Michigan's summer baseball sport
will begin today at 2 o'clock on Ferry
field, when the Quartermaster and
Ordnance baseball teams play their
first game of their series. Then with
the Ypsilanti Normalites scheduled to
play the All-Campus team next Sat-
urday, summer school students will
see the summer sport started in earn-
Several of Michigan's past stars are
in the line-up on both teams and a lit-
tle fast'stuff will be seen.
Keen rivalry is being shown by the
members of both teams and rumor has
it that everything from "the makin's"
to "let's take your accounting notes"
are being betted by, the "Sammy's"
for their team.
Doctor George A. May, physical di-
rector of the gymnasium, will umpire
the game and the promises that there
will not be any "shady decisions" for
the losers to use as alibis.
At present no authentic dope can
be given as to the/strength of the
teams, but the following line-up will
probably start the game, though the
finish cannot be predicted.

Needio More Men
This Number Wanted in Order That
Tourney May Be Played;
15 Signed Up
At least 10 more men are needed
for the tennis tournament in order to
secure a satisfactory schedule. Up to
the present time 15 men have signed
up for the game, and judging by the
number of men that are carrying
racquets these days there is every in-
dication that a sufficient number of
men can be secured.
Those interested in the sport and
who have already signed up for the
contest are especially urged to secure
additional men. If the necessary quota
is not filled early next week, it is
planned to post placards about the
campus and have the men sign up
It is also planned to assess those
entering the contest 25 cents so that
a suitable medal may be obtained for
the winner, and also prizes for the
best singles and doubles.
Arrangements have been made to
start the schedule by the end of next
week. All those who wish to enter
the contest should call 2414 between
3 and 4 o'clock Monday afternoon or
present their names at The Wolverine

Twenty-five men have already signed
up for the 27 vacant places in the
three Michigan ambulance corps at
Allentown, Pa. While some of the

their examination, it is certain that a
large number of applicants will be

not be taken because of physical or
other reasons, and it is urged that any

Elsie Herndon Kearns Players Show
Polish; Present Two Plays
With "The Taming of the Shrew" in
the afternoon and "Much Ado About
Nothing" in the evening the Elsie
Herndon Kearns players began their
annual series of Shakespearian plays
at Michigan yesterday. Though handi-
capped by the absence of Ben Greet
himself, the company gave the plays in
a smooth and polished fashion. Prac-
tically the only weakness was in those
parts which the former director was
accustomed to play himself, not in the
direction or acting of the plays as a
The simplicity of the settings, with
their background of leafy boughs, the
new mown hay, the music, the songs
between the scenes so nearly approxi-
mated the conditions under which the
plays were first preseted that no little
contribution was made to the enjoy-
ment of them.
In the afternoon production, George
Carleton Somnes as Petruchio shared
honors with the 'Katherine' of Elsie

Many Professors in List
A number of the professors in the
University have been called to the col-
ors by the draft. Sons of several pro-
fessors are also in the lists.
The professors who are to enter the
new United States army by draft, if
not exempted, will probably be or-

throughout the state before the middle

Washtenaw County Requires 258 Men
Washtenaw's quota of men will be
258, as compared with 1,386 men
in Wayne county, the largest, and 13
in Mocasta, the smallest in the state.
Among the other smaller quotas for
the different counties are, Oscoda, 15;
Roscommon, '19; Lake, 34, and Mont-
Detroit calls for 11829 men for the
new army, while Flint is expected to
furnish 882 men.
The approximate number can be as-
certained, due to a probable 50 per
cent exemption, by doubling the quota
of each county.
