Addition of Several Stars Strengthens
Line-Up; Five Military Men
en Squad
Strengthened by the addition of sev-
eral stars, the All-Campus diamond
artists will cross bats with the Ypsi
lanti normal aggregation at 3 o'clock
Saturday afternoon on Ferry field for
the first game of a series of three. It
will be the first appearance of the
campus-ites this summer and the first
proposition they will tackle is a fast
one according to rumors from the
nearby city.
The All-Campus team Is represent-
ed by every school on the campus and
well deserves its name. Michigan's
Military Stores course has five men on
the line-up and judging from the
brand of ball they showed last Satur-
day in the game between the Quarter-
master and Ordnance departments
their ability will add considerable
strength to the team. The other men,
excepting Ohlmacher, a Varsity pitch-
e, are the pick of the summer school
try-outs and have thus far shown a
good brand of ball.
With a continuance of the present
elegant weather the baseball fans are
assured of a pitchers battle on Satur-
day which will make the initiation of
summer athletics a complete go from
start to finish.
The All-Campus line-up is as fol-
Hammond, c; Ohlmacher, p; Com-
stock, ss; Mahoney, lb; Miller, 2b;
West, 3b; Niemann, rf; Walsh, cf, and
Dwyer, If.

Government May Give Technical and
Scientific Students Time to
Finish Courses
Exemption for students in universi-
ties and colleges who give promise of
special aptitude for the technical and
scientific professions until the comple-
tion of the courses, is being seriously
considered by the war department, due
to the fact that there is a small num-
her of available engineers in the coun-
at the present time.
President Harry B. Hutchins receiv-
ed a letter, authorized by Secretary
of War, from Commissioner P. P.
Claxton. Several sections of the let-
ter are as follows:f
"The successful prosecution of the
war depends in large degree on thet
services of scientific and technical ex-
perts. It is of the utmost importance
that the supply of men who have had
advanced technical training should
not be cut off more than is necessary.
In view of this fact, the war depart-t
ment believes that students in technic-t
al schools and colleges who are within
the age* limits of the selective draftt
should be treated in the same manner
as the workers in the industries whicht
are devoted to the manufacture of war
Possible Exemption for Studentst
"Under this ruling, the presidents of
colleges and technical schools may
properly urge the district exemption
boards to exempt students in their in-
situations who give promise of special
aptitude for the technical and scien-

exercise due caution and will not
claim exemption for students whose1
