Peace rally at the Big House

It was no ordinary half-
timeshowattheP1971home-
coming football game.
That Saturday afternoon,
the announcer asked the
crowd of 75,000 fans for a
moment of silence to honor
those who died in the Viet-
nam War, asuwell as the lives
that would stillibe lost.
Fifty war veterans, who
had lined the east sideline,
then released 100 black
balloons to symbolize the
1.5 million victims lost
in the war,: as the march-
ing band played "Taps,"
according to "War as
They Knew It," a book by
Michael Rosenberg.
University officials
agreed to allow the anti-
war observance during
halftime after they were
presented with a petition

signed by 1,500 people. But
they stipulated that band
members and the local
chapter of Vietnam Veter-
ans Against the War could
be the only people allowed
on the field.
Signatures supporting
the petitionfromtwo-thirds
of the football team, howev-
er, presented some conflicts
in the locker room.
Bo Schembechler, the
University's head foot-
ball coach at the time, was
concerned that the dem-
onstration would be too
distracting. In his eyes,
there was no place for it at
a Michigan football game.
Many viewed the 1971
homecoming theme,"Bring
all the troops home now.
Let's have a real homecom-
ing this year," as a success.

Spectators at the game
commented that the
unusual halftime show was
"an emotional experience
in good taste."
Marvin Epstein, an alum
who watched the show, told
the Daily at the time that
the "fantastic" halftime
festivities allowed the Uni-
versity to distinguish itself
from other colleges.
Though University Sec-
retary Richard Kennedy
and Schembechler were
concerned that mixing
football and politics could
be a distraction, the peace-
ful halftime show went off
without a hitch.
In the end, the football
team was unfazed by the
interruption, winning 61-7
over Indiana.

CORRECTIONS
* A news article in yester-
day's edition of the Daily
('U' profs turn to blogging)
misidentified the title of
Mark Perry, a professor of

economics and finance at
the School of Management
at the University's Flint
campus. A quote was also
incorrectly written, and
should have read "Now here
I am just as a professor with-
out any staff, without any
research assistants, writing
a blog that's gotten pretty
popular."
An article in last Fri-
day's edition of the Daily
(Prospective Greeks head
to winter rush) incorrectly
reported Alpha Epsilon Phi's
reason for leaving campus in
2005, which was not due to a
hazing incident.
. An article in yesterday's
edition of the Daily (Finding
a signal in the dorms) incor-
rectly reported the cost to
install wireless access points
in a residence hall, which
costs several hundred thou-
sands of dollars.
. Please report any error
in the Daily to corrections@
michigandaily.com.
