(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
second of two articles dealing with
the reporting of football games in
the days before radio and tele-
vision.)
By HAL APPLEBAUM

In 1920, before radio and even
before the Majestic Theater pre-
sented away games via ticker tape,
Michigan footballfans were able
to follow collegiate football Ain the
newsreels shown at the local thea-
ters.
However, there. was only one
drawback, Michigan games never
appeared;
The situation was grim, both'
from the students' and the thea-
ter manager's standpoint, but try
as they may newsreel footage of
Michigan games just wasn't avail-
able.
"In 1920 the newsreel people and
sportswriters didn't recognize the'
teams in the Midwest. As far as
they were concerned Pittsburgh
was the edge of the, frontier and
everything west of there was wild=
erness," Jerry Hoag, manager of
the local theaters sinice 1919,
stated.
All Eastern Show
"Yale, Harvard and Princeton
were the only teams covered in the
newsreels, and as important as
these games were in the East our
customers wanted movies of the
Michigan games.".
"Finally, we told our newsreel
suppliers that we would., stop buy-
ing unless they added Michigan
games," Hoag continued, "and in

1921 we got the first pictures of
Michigan away games."
"When the newsreels came into
the theaters they used to have a
synopsis attached to them 'and
after 1921 they used to read at the
bottom; Midwest ONLY, Michi-
gan football," he added.!
"In those days there was no]
sound track and the newsreels had
subtitles, but the -processor's used
to rush so to, get us the pictures
by Sunday that they didn't have
time to put in the titles, so we
used to stop the orchestra while
the game film was on and I would

get up on' stage with a megaphone
and narrate."
Continuing, Hoag said, "The
widespread use of radio in the late
20's killed the ticker tape recrea-
tion of Michigan away games, but
we continued with the film ver-
sions."
"In fact football was getting so
popular that the men out in Holly-
wood tried to cash in on its popu-
larity by making a football movie,"
Hoag stated, "They got Red
Grange, who was the greatest
player of the day to be the pic-
ture's star."

"They released the picture in
the fall of 1930 and we were to
show it during the middle of the
football season. The name of the
picture was "One Minute To Play"
and Grange, the hero, scored the
winning touchdown in the last
minute of play to win the game."
"We showed the picture a week
before we were to play Purdue and
Michigan fans came to see Grange,
who never played in Ann Arbor,
play a movie hero. The students
hooted and hollered because
Grange scored the winning touch-
down with less than a minute to
go.
/ Things like that just didn't hap-
pen in that era of defensive, low
scoring football," he added.
"In those days it was no dis-
grace to lose 7-6 or by some other
close margin. If a team had the
ball near the end of the game and
were losing by a small margin, they
never tried anything fancy to pull
out the game."
"Well, a week later Michigan
traveled to Lafayette to meet Pur-
due. The Wolverines were losing
13-0 with four minutes to go in
the first half and everybody
thought that was how the half
was going to end, but Harry New-
man had other ideas as he threw
two touchdown passes and made1
both extra points. Michigan won
the game 14-13," Hoag 'said.
"After that the student stopped,
booing the Grange picture," he
added.
