The University of Michigan
football stadium, largest college-
owned structure of its kind, will
have a "new look" for fans at-
tending the Wolverines' six home
games this fall.
More than 30 running miles of
blue fiber glass seat covers with
maize numbers,, have been placed
on its 101,001 seats this summer.
Across from the pressbox side of
the stadium or the east side, a
huge block "M" of Maize and'
Blue that extends between the=
20-yard lines, and reaches from
the fifth row to row 72 in height,
also has been installed in the new
The project was begun last
March for the comfort of the fans
as well as to beautify the stadium.
A whole carload of lumber was
used to replace weathered or
broken seats before the fiber glass
rows were installed. Some idea of
the tremendous task involved may
be had from the fact that each
row of seat covers had to be es-
pecially tailored to fit into its
section and row, and hand-
carried into the stadium to be
fitted into place. In. addition to
the lumber, more than 45,000
carriage bolts and 325,000 pop
rivets were used in the job, be-
sides stainless steel bands and
clips to fasten the covers into
place. The corner and ends of the
stadium provided special problems
where sections had to be cut and
fitted on the site.
While the seats will be ready for
the opening crowd at the Cali-
fornia game-high school band
day-September 25, it may take
until the end of October before
the project is completed.
