Alumni and students of Michigan
united in Hill auditorium last night
to organize pep for the Chicago foot-
ball game to be played on Ferry field.
Following the parade of the Varsity
band around the campus, the meeting
was opened at 7:30 o'clock by Paul
Eaton, '21, president of the Union, who
acted as chairman. Eaton introduced
Carl T. Hogan, '20E, after Varsity
Cheerleader Cuthbert had led the
crowd in yells.
Hogan, remembered as one of the
best of last year's speakers, roused
great enthusiasm in his audience with
his inspiring words. The necessity of
backing up the efforts of the Varsity
with a maximum of constructive en-
thusiasm was his talking point, which
found favor with his hearers. -
Hogan continued, stressing the ne-
cessity for supporting the twice de-
feated Michigan eleven, which is play-
ing Chicago for the first time in 16
years on the Michigan field. This is'
cause for the utmost determination ons
the' part of every Michigan student,
the determination to win, and avenge
the effect of the 'previous defeats, on'
the part of all students of the Uni-

effort to back up what 'the alumni
have done for Michigan in gettin.

keep these men eligible so that they
can put forth their best efforts for
Frank Murphy, '14, spoke from the
alumni standpoint. -Mr. Murphy i'
one of the hardest workers for Mich-
igan and Michigan athletics, his ef-
forts being mainly through the De-
troit Alumni association.
"The oath taken by all Athenian
youths to leave Athens 'better, finer.
and more beautiful/ than they found
it' is inspiration enough for Michi-
gan students. It is the duty of every
man and woman in the University t
follow this idea and do his or her
best for Michigan," was Murphy's

crowd, which completely filled thr
auditorium, overflowed with pep. New

To date the Wolverines have the
edge on their opponents from !the
Windy City, having won nine games

ever, the Maroon team has the honor
of having won last year, 13 to 0.
Whether the 1920 season must be

from a Michigan standpoint will be
'letermined this afternoon. If the
Yostmen can put across the victory
which the whole student body is pull-
ing for, the chances of beating Min-
nesota next week will be greatly en-'
1'anced because of the increased con-
fidence which the team will acquire.
Two victories at the end of the sea-
son would do much toward taking the
bad taste of the Illinois and Ohio
eames out of the Michigan mouths.
After all, it would be no disgrace to
finish the season with victories
against all but the two best teams in
the Conference. o

patrons a rare treat at 8 o'clock to-
night in Hill auditorium in the form
of a very, unique ensemble and solo

Has World Wide Reputation
The United States Marine band has
been in existence for more than a
century and has gained a world wide
reputation. Its members are all men
of ability and reputation, while the
average time of service of the mem-
bers is eighteen years. This with the
regularity of rehearsals has given
them unity of ensemble which does
not ordinarily exist among bands.
Its Ann Arbor appearance was
brought about through the joint nego-
tiations of the Chamber of Commerce
and the University School of Music.
The program follows:
Overture, "Tannhauser," Wagner;
nocturne, "Dream of Love," Liszt;
cornet solo, "Arbucklinian," Hartman
(musician Arthur S. Whitcomb); "In-
vitation to the Dance," Weber-Wein-
gartner (transcribed for band by Wil-
liam H. Santleman); prologue. "Oag-j
liacci," Leoncavallo; concerto for twol
violincellos, Kummer, (musicians
Fritz Mueller and Gerold Schon);
"Southern Rhapsody," Hosmer; Sec-
ond Polonaise," Liszt; "Star Spangled

MEET ILINOIS TODAY
Headed by Coach Gill and Captain
Allman, Illinois' cross country team
arrived in Ann Arbor last night for
this morning's hill and dale battle
with Michigan's harriers. The Illini
are confident of victory, for, though
they were beaten by Purdue as was
Michigan, they put up a far stiffer
race. Other than Allman, whose
name is known to every Conference
track enthusiast, there is Dusenberry
a man whose running was to a large
extent responsible for the Illinois vic-
tory in the Conference meet last
While there is no doubt of the fact
that Illinois is represented by a
strong squad, Coach Farrell is far
from beaten. Captain Brannan and
his men are determined to wie out
the Blue and Gold victory of las
year, and this determination may b(
a large factor in the final outcome o
The men will go on their marks

Editor The Michigan Daily:
A large number of people, alumni,
students, faculty, and others-have
been greatly dsiappointed by their
in ability to get tickets for the Chi-
cago game. May I take this oppor-
tunity to say that everybody connect-
ed with the affairs of the Athletic as-
sociation regrets that the situation is
such that these disappointments are
The plan for ticket distribution for
this game was precisely the same as
that which' has been followed for
many years in the big Homecoming
games. While soma: inevitably got the
poorer seats, the plan generally
=peaking worked to the satisfaction of
the applicant for accommodations.
The wholly unexpected and un-
nrecedented demand for seats for the
Chicago game literally swamped the
Athletic association office, making it
necessary to cut down and refuse ap-
nlications, much to the disappoint-
ment of those who count;u upon be-
ing cared for. Apparently it would
have been possible to sell 50,000 tick-
ets had they been available. It should
"iot be necessary to say that these
refusals were made entirely imper-
'onally and impartialfy.
The basic idea of the present plan
has been to give to each group -
the alumni, students, faculty, andf
supports of the visiting team-an
,even chance. Space is roughly -ap-
nor~ioned to each group, and within
any such group the practice has been
and is, first come, first served, so
long as the tickets last. The only de-
-arture from the order of preference
based on order of receipts has been
in the student group in which there
were made sub-groups based on num-
her of years on the campus. Thus a
student who has been here two years
will ordinarily get a better seat than
another who has been here only one,
even though the latter's application
was in earlier.
The present experience has shown
very clearly that there must be a rad-
ical revision in the plan for the fu-
ture. It is probable that it will be
concluded that the limit in number of
tickets purchasable by any one per-
son must be materially reduced from
six, its present figure, with prefer-
ence of course as heretofore to stu-
deats, alumni, and others connected
with the University. It will be neces-
sary also to give serious considera-
tion to the possibility of adding to our
present seating capacity.

After falling in on the campus and

paint, the two classes will march in
body to Ferry field, where officials
will take charge and conduct the an-
nual fall games.
Pillow Fight First Game
The first game will be the pillow
fight on the greased bars. There will
be nine individual pillow fights and a
class to win this event must take
five out of the nine. Men for this
contest were picked by the class cap-
tains yesterday afternoon. The team
winning this contest is to be award-
ed one point.
The second game is to be the shut-
tle relay race, which will also count
one point. There will be 20 men on
each team in this contest, 10 on each
side of the field, and the object is to
relay the flags with these men, the
class bringing in their flag first to
be declared the winner.
Sophs to Guard Cane
The third and last game will be the
cane contest. A cane will be given
to the sophomores and they will in
turn form around it and attempt to
hold it against the attacks of the
freshmen until the 15 minute period
is over. The class possessing the cane
at. the end of 15 minutes will be de-
clared the winner and will be award-
ed one point.
The entire Student council will of-
ficiate at the games and in addition
there will be between 35 and 40 up-
perclassmen, other than the council-
men, on hand to guard against slug-
ging or other foul practices.
Old Clothes Suggested
All participants in the games must
wear tennis shoes and it would be
advisable to wear old clothes. If the
games can be started by 9:30 o'clock,
they should be over by 11:30 o'clock,
which will give everyone time to get
ready for the Chicago game in the
