Trof. Hastings has recently intro
duced Into the gymnasium the new
game of indoor baseball, and if the interest in the gaine keeps up
it will .soon become wry popular. A
league has been formed of three
tennis, composed of members of the
Pershing Hides, the arslty baseball
team and the Athletic class. The llrst
game of the season will be played In
the uj in nasi um iut Wednesday ev
ening between the Pershing rllles and
the Athletic class. A small admission
fee will be charged ami It Is hoped
that the game will be patronized lib
erally, us the proceeds of the Indoor
baseball M'rien go toward purchasing
uniforms for the baseball team. For
the benefit of those who do not. under
stand the giitne, the various points in
which it ditVers materially from base
ball are given below:
Kneli side of the diamond is 27 feet
long and the distance from home to
hceond biiM- or first to third buse is
:si', feet. The pitcher's bov Ih !') feet
distant from the home plate. The ball,
which Is of a yielding Hiibstance, is
J 7 inches hi circumference, and 8V,
unce9 Jn weight. The bat must be
a-v, feet lonR nud not larger than 1
Inches In diameter.
Only Ktralght-arm pitching, In which
he arm and hand swing parallel with
the body, wiJl be allowed, and the
"ball is not to be curved.
n pitched ball striking the. butter
is a dead ball, but does not entitle
him to a base. If It should be the
third strike, the batter Is not out and
no base enn be run on that ball.
batted ball which strikes Inside
or on the foul lines Ih fair, the llrst
point of contact with the floor, object
or fielder, deciding, regardless of
where it afterward rolls. A batted
ball Is a foul If it first Htrlkes outside
the foul line.
One of the greatest dlfVercnccs from
baseball is that In regard to the base
runner, who is not allowed to leave
bis hnsc on a pitched ball, not Htruch,
until after It has reached or passed
the catcher.
The definitions just given constitute
the most important points wherein
this game iIHTcih from baseball and
while there are many minor differ
ences, they haw no material effect on
the game

that there will be an Indoor base

your money for It will be worth twice

Dutch says he can slide twenty feet
and the bases are only twenty-seven
feet apart, so you see the Dutch man
is sliding most of the time.

Dr. Ward Writes to the Student Con
cerning the (.rent Ksplotcr.
It Is hardly two mouths since ICdiu
burg rose with open arnm to welcome
the young Aineiicun whose patient,
careful study has glwn the world so
much clearer insight into life in the
Arctic regions. The papers which
bring us accounts of Peary's recent
lslt to Scotland, speak In glowing
terms of the man and his work. Here
we arc apt to owrlook the ipilct luxes
ligations of our own count ryinan in
the more brilliant clVorts of the Arc
tie eplorers. Peary niadc no long
drift to the pole in a boat carried on
Hunting Icefields, while protected and
cheered by all the comforts that
modern cMIIation could devise, nor
was his a pyrotechnic oyagc through
the air with pioblcmatle outcome.
Not that other oyagcH are in any
way to be criticised; those who face
such dangers tu the cause of science
descrw only the highest praise at the
hands of men of lesser courage ami
enterprise. Newrtheless the methods
of our American explorer, Lieutenant
Peary, of the I'. S. X., involw more
self-suerlllce If possible. and certainly
have yielded the most important re
sults concerning the natural history
of the Arctic regions.
Peary has made his home with the
K.snuimuux and has won their confi
dence and support so thoroughly that
they are his ardent helpers In cwry
enterprise. Ills long life among these
people of the foreign north has en
abled him to collect a large mass of
ethnological data regarding them
that has greatly increased our knowl
edge of these tribes. lie has also
with their assistance made more ex
tensive and thorough geological and
zoological collections than any of his
predecessors or contemporaries. The
huge ineterolte, which lias justly
claimed the attention of the world, is
of course the most unique I cat lire of
his collci'llons, but they contain
many lesser things of great Interest.
While Peary was abroad Sir Alford
lltimsworth, himself an explorer and
member of the famous .lackson-llaius-
worlh expedition to I'ran. .losef l.and,
presented him with the boat, "The
Windward," which was used in the ex
pedition just mentioned, and is ad
mirably adapted to Arctic work. In
this Peary plans to make a new ex
ploration this year. Hrictly outlined
liis plan Is this: After l caching the
limits of northward progress in the
boat, to take the land and on the isl
ands reaching toward the (Kile, estab
lish two or three well equipped sup
ply stations, Iroin the most northerly
of which in the summer of IM)!) he
plans to niaVe his final p".sh for the
pole attended by only one or two of
Ills companions. In all this work he
looks for great help from his devoted
Ksquimnux' friends, and In passing
through a region at least, partly
known to them, he wj'u find their al'd
of Inestimable cnlue. The mere dls
cowry of. the pole itself Is of little
Value In comparison with the attend
ant dlseowries concerning the geo
graphy, ethnology and biology of the
Peary is a splendid lecturer, and I
hope no student will miss the oppor
tunity to hear this typical repiesenta
tlon of American pluck and enter
prise, who, in the words of nn Kng-
Ilsniau, and Is "the prince of Arctic
