11111 Auditorium is Scene of Noise as
Electric Grid Shows
More than 2,000 students witnessed
the Michigan-Vanderbilt game repro-
duced on the grid graph, installed in
Hill auditorium Saturday afternoon.
The demonstration of the board was
in thrills and excitement second only
to the game itself.
Long before the game began "stay
at home" spectators swarmed into
the auditorium to catch the first word
of the Varsity. William H. Lustfield,
'25, a member of the cheerleading
squad wa.s there and led the crowd in
yells, while waiting for the game to
begin. The band, marching up direct-
ly from drill on Ferry field, entered
the auditorium at 3:15 o'clock, the
game itself starting at 3:45.
The electric board showed the game
in every detail from start to finish.
A long 'glass plate, 1-1 feet wide by
15 feet long, represented the grid-
iron, with lights marking off the yard
lines. In back .of this another light,
the pigskin, moved and flickered as
it was advanced or retarded up or
down the field by the two contending
teams. This light not only showed
the yardage gained by the play used,
but the exact position of the ball on
th field at all times as well.
So. realistic was the whole demon-
stration and the game recreated, that
the entire period was marked by con-
tinual cheering and yelling. Crys of
Hold 'em, team," and "touchdown"
were heard from all sides.
In speaking of the success of the
venture Mr. Paul Leidy, of the Alum-
ni association, in charge of the affair,
said, "We are very much pleased with
the enthusiasm shown for this first'
attempt. The association is now
making plans for showing the Ohio
game in the same way and perhaps
the other outside games of the year."

veterans today began swarming into
the city, already accomodating many
annual American Legion convention
which opens Monday. The hotels of
teh city, already accommodating many
delegates to the conclaye of the Allied
Veterens of the Woird War, were tax-

the larger meeting.
Tomorrow, when the convention
formally opens, trains, autos, ships
and airplanes are expected to bring
in the legionaires from every section
of the country. Many of the state or-
ganizations have chartered special
trains in sending their delegates and
other vets who have been invitel to
attend the get-together.
Preparations for the largest meet-
ing in the history of the Legion have
been made. The city tonight was in
gala' attire. Local committees, work-

expended every energy in working out
the details of the meeting. °

Nashville Tenn., Oct. 15. - Two
teams who had not been given a real
test this season-two teams who met
to determine whether the supremacy
of one, the visitor, should continue
unchallenged-faced each other on the
Vanderbilt field Saturday afternoon
and after a battle of wits against wits
and , brawn against brawn, Michigan
and Vanderbilt had fought to 'a score-
less tie.
The Wolverines, conceded to be the
better of the two aggregatiors, were
opposed by a worthy foe, the Com-
modores putting fort every effort to
stem the Michigan ttack-and stem
it they did. The Yostmen 'gained
more territory than their rivals, and
even once threatened seriously to
score, but were held for downs by
the Southerners on their 1 yard line-
a feat as marvelous as the historic
'ncident when Michigan held Chicago
for four downs when the Staggmen
had less than one yard to go for a
score. Both teams used the aerial
rout for ground-gaining, but of the
two Michigan was more successful.N
Michigan might have had a better
chance of scoring had not penaltle
interfered at times when it was cer-
tain that the Southerners would soon
be crosssd.
Kipke was called on for most of
the backfield work and (, 'ganed uch'
of't the Wolverine yardage, wit Ste
ger. Cappon and Roby aiding with end
ruuns and line bucks, the majority of
which were stopped by the strong
Vanderbilt line. Toward the end of
the game, in a strong effort to score,
Goebel directed Michigtins forward
pass onslaught, but here again, after
an end run and pass had netted 20
yards,,a penalty sent the.Woverines _
too far back to continue the offensive
in the short time which remained.
