The entire University will assem-

a send-off for the Illinois game. The
following members of the Student
dent council have been appointed to
supervise arrangements: C. D. Bottum;

David D. Nash, '20, Frank J. Helbig,

said Carl Johnson, '20, president of
the Student council, yesterday. He
continued, "Michigan is now given a,
chance #o prove that she has not lost
that 'come-back' spirit for which she
has been so justly famed in forner
years. With two defeats behind' her,
and two of the hardest games of tie
season before- her, it is imperative
that the student body give the team,
all the backing they possibly can. Not
many of us can go with the team, but
every one of us can be on hant to
give them such a send-off as Michi-
gan has never before witnessed. The
team deserves it, they are fighting;
it is the least we can do for them.
Victory Means Much
'It should also be remembered that
the cross country team goes to Illi-
nois - at the same time the football;
squad leaves. They also deserve the
student's hearty support."
George Hurley, '21L, secretary of the
Union, said, "The team faces the most
WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?-
A Michigan team will leave for, a rival field at 10:42 tonight.
That-team has been defeated twice this year. Michigan has always
been considered; the leader of the Conference and Champion of the
West. To lose the next two, or even one, games would for the first
time in history put Michigan at the bottom of the Conference list.
Never before has Michigan lost as she may lose this year. Never
before has Michigan been so near to losing the prestige that she.
has held from tiine immemorial. We'can stand the sting of losing two
games, but another must not be added to the list.
There is only one thing that will 'make that Michigan team
stand a. chance of defeating Illinois. That is pure, unadulterated
Michigan spirit. Michigan is going through on its spirit and nerve
as it never has before. There will be no schedule of trick plays;
Michigan spirit only can'push the 'Maizd and Blue team to 'victory. j
To have that spirit, the team must have the biggest/send off that has
ever been given a Michigan or any other team. Spirit, 'plenty of it,
displayed by the student body will give the team the confidence that
it must have to make, a good account of itself. It is disheartening
to anyone to lose two important contests. The team -is' no, exception.
It must be re-imbued with that old Michigan- -"fight 'em" spirit.
Cheer it, talk about it, stand behind it, do anything that will show
Those fighters that Michigan .is behind her team.
That train leaves the Michigan Central depot at 10:42 tonight.
Nine thousand eight hundred men and women, students and members
of the faculty be there. It's stay up or go down once for all-time,

Arthur Whitten Brown, K. B. V., who

night in Hill auditorium under the
auspices of the oratorical association,
is quoted as saying.
The principal reasn given by lieu-

of airplanes of heavier-than-air type
is that the great weight of their fuel
loads makes it impossible to carry

freight. He hopes fdr the eventual
