TUESDAY, JULY ;3, 1918
An attempt has been made by stu-
dents on the campus to organize a
summer school baseball team. Such
a'team was organized and played one
game at Ypsilanti. It was beaten.
The attempt to put such' a team in
the field is laudable. There Is no
reason why the University shouldn't
be represented during the summer on
the diamond, as there are plenty of
good players on the campus, and an
excellent place to play.
1f..such a team is organized; how-
ever, iSt should practice and do all in
its power to make it a fit representa-
tive of the University of Michigan.
We have an athletic record second to
nopne in the country, and the teams
we send out to uphold it should be
the best possible teams we can get
together. Specifically, we had a
bseball team this spring that won
the championship of the West, and
was claimant to the championship of
It is not fair to this tem, and to
the other great baseball teams that
have gone out before and won cham-
pionships, that their records should be
placed next to that of a nine collect-
ed hurriedly to play games with
teams that orinarily are not placed
in the same class athletically. There
are always too many boasters ready
to say they "played on a team that
beat Michigan;" or "I was with the
Ypsilanti Normal club that defeated
the Wolverines, the year they were
champions of the West." It is not
fair to the teams and the University.
We believe the University is ready
to stand loyally behind any team that
is willing to work, and put the old
Michigan fight into their game. That
fight is not present in a team that
does not practice. Michigan fights
with every ounce of'strength, clean-
ly, but just as hard as hard work and
long training will help a team to
Therefore, if the team we have on
the campus at present is to represent
the University it should be out prac-
ticing regularly. The Ypsilanti team
that defeated it, as result of our *er-
rors a week ago Saturday, does prac-
tice regularly. It is coached by a
paid man. If we are to compete
against such a team we must prac-
tice just as hard. If the team we
have does not care to practice, It
should not go down to Ypsilanti as
representing the University of Michi-
gan. Without a doubt if the team will
do its part towards making it a fit
representative of the University the
campus wIll stand behind. If it, how-
ever, does not care to accept the re-
sponsibility, there ,is no reason why
it shouldn't play anyway. It need
merely take some other name.
DUTCH PUBLISH CONVOY
EPISODE IN "WHITE BOOK"
The Hague, July 23. - A Dutch
white book regarding the convoy to
the East'Indies, has just been pub-
lished and reveals that the convoy
actually sailed with German dye-
stuffs, to which Great Britain object-
ed, and it was recalled.
When Holland saw that if the dye-
stuffs remained aboard the convoy
would be stopped by British war-
ships with the inevitable result that
the commander of the convoy would
offer armed resistance, the Dutch
government resolved to discharge this
portion of the cargo.
