Electric Scoreboard Tried Out
Fall to Reproduce Future
Outside Games.


Purchase of the grid graph appara-
tus for reproducing football games
has been completed by the Alumni
association. The electric scoreboard
which was introduced to Ann Arbor
last fall, at the Vanderbilt, Ohio State
and Minnesota contests will now re-
main at the University to be used in
the future for a. away-from-home
A complete report of the year has
been issued by the Alumni assocatioi:
to show the public the results obtained
in the use of the grid graph. The
board was brought here last fall as an
experiment, to give the students a
chance to see the team action in out of
town contests, and at the same time
to help pay off the debt on Alumni
Memorial hall. The men in charge of
he, venture feel that it was a success
in every way.
Witnessed by 6,000
More than 6,000 people witnessed
the Varsity team in action last fall by
means of the grid graph, the electric
apparatus first being used to repro-
duce the Vanderbilt game. The Var-
sity band and cheerleaders helped in
the demonstration and the board was
pronounced a success..
At the Ohio. State and, Minnesota
contests the litle electric lights again
played the game in Hill Auditorium,
and despite the fact that .during the
former battle more than half the
school was in Columbus, a large crowd
of several thousand turned out to
view the scoreboard.
The board was operated on a fifty-
fifty basis, the contract designating
that one half the proceeds should go
to the owners and the rest to the
Alumni association. An admission
charge of 50 cents was charged, and
as a rasult of the plan the net profits
to the association amounted to $900,
after deducting contributions of $175j
to the Women's league building fund
and $50 to the Varsity- band fund.
Thus campus organizations together
with the Alumni association profited
to the extent of $1,125 as a result or
the display of the scoreboard.
Profits Net $351,'
The profiits made by the association
are to be used to help wipe out the
debt caused by unpaid pledges to the
Alumni Memorial hall building fund.
As the complete apparatus for the
boardcost approximately$550, the
amount available from this source}
for note reduction this year amounts
to the balance from the $900, or $350.
With the board now paid for, the
initial expense has been taken care
of, so that next year a far greater
sum is expected to resutt from this
means. As expressed by Wilfred B.
Shaw, secretary of the Alumni asso-
ciation, and Paul A. Leidy, busincs
manager -of the Alumnus, it is the
hope of the organization to wipe away
this debt in two or three years by
this means, and at the same time to
give an opportunity to the students
to see the team in action in its game
away from Ann Arbor, as well as
those on Ferry field.
