The field day on Saturday was a success finar cially, if ín no other way. The price of admifsion was increased to fifty c-itits, and as about 1,000 ptople were present the Base Ball Associetion wil! clear neatly $400. As an athletic event the day was far from iuccecsful. An entire lack of management prevailed, which in itself was enough to discourage the Urge audienoe. This t( gether with the rainy weather, the poor track and the absence of many entries by U. of M. boys weut to ranke up a po;r ñeid day, and had it not been for the hearty way in which the Detroit Athletic Club t-ok hold and the large number of emries made by the members of this club, the event would have proven a failure. The only close contest oí the day was the hundred yards dsh, the final of wh'ch was between Owen, of Detroit, and Jewett, of Notre Dame, and was as pretty a race as was ever run.
