University of Chicago opened its 1923
football season today with a victory
over Michigan Aggies, 34 to 0. Within
striking distance of the goal, the Chi-
cago machine showed speed and drive,
scoring two touchdowns from 20 yard
forward passes, one from a series of
line plunges, one on an Aggie fumble
and one on a pretty broken field run
by Captain Jimmy Pyott. The Ma-
roons completed five out of six pass-

An appreciative article.
Greater demand for tickets for all
of the home games on the Michigan
schedule has been evidenced this
year than any season in the history
of the Athletic association. Already
the ticket sale for students and fac-
ulty for the Marine game alone
amounts to more than 200 more than
the demand for both of the Conference
games at a similar date last year.
Minnesota 'Tickets Golng XFast
If sale of tickets for the Minnesota
game continues at the present rate,
the Athletic association is confident
that the stands will be sold out sever-
al weeks before the game. For this
reason they desire that students who
wish to secure extra tickets send in
their applications immediately. It is
anticipated if the weather for the
Vanderbilt and Marine games is fav-
orable that a capacity crowd will be
on hand for both occasions.
Figures issued last night by Harry
Tillotson, assistant director of the
Athletic association, giving the num-
ber of tickets sold to date this year

First Extra Hole Match In History
Of Natin's Pro' Tournament
Ends At 88th..
EXCELLENT APPROACH FROM
DIFFICULT LIE WINS TITLE1
Pelham Manor, N. Y., Sept. 29.-(By
A. P.)-An amazigig recovery shot
from a cray-fish mark beside the 38th
hole at the Pelham country club
brought victory today for Gene Sara-
zen, the young Italian-American in-
structor of Briar Cliff Manor and de-
feat for Walter Hagen, the veteran,t
in the professional golfers' associa-
tion's most thrilling title match. Andt
upon Saraen's head still rests thet
crown he won last year at Oakmont,
Victory for Sarazen in this, theE
first extra hole final match in thet
history of the professional champion-
ship tournament came after an uphill<
fight by Hagen who had squared the;
match at the 36th hole after beingt
three down at the 28th. They sorted
an extra hole after Hagen had made1
an excellent recovery from a trap on
the 36th for a half.
Both sank putts of more than 5t
feet on the 37th for birdie fours.
Came then the tricky 38th, a 310 yard
hole with a sharp curve to the green1
around a clump of trees. Hagen es-
sayed a shot over the trees to thet
green. His ball stopped on the edge<
of a sand trap beside the gireen.,
Undismayed by his shot, Sarazen,
played for the hole. His ball fell short
in mossy ground sprinkled with the
mud of cray-fish. Selecting a mashieI
niblick he put the ball within two
feet of the cup. This excellent shott
drew the applause of the great gal-
lery. When there was quiet Hagen
stepped to his ball. Perhaps Sarazen's
shot unnerved him for when he struck
he looked up and his ball failed to
carry out of the sand. His third shot
curved toward the cup and seemed as
if it might go in, then rolled to one
side. Sarazen ks did not hesitate with
his putt. It trickled in.

and at the same time in previous
years give an idea of the situation.
Already students and faculty have ap-
plied for more than 9,000 more tickets
for the Ohio State game than at the
same time for the game two years
ago when the Ferry Field stadium was
dedicated. The alumni already have
been allotted the maximum 13,000
seats this year while in 1921 they had
only applied for 6970 on Sept. 29.
Demand Greater Thin Ever.
At this time last season, the total
alumni demand for tickets for the
two home games, Illinois and Wiscon-
sin, amounted to only 13,625. To date
the total for the two home Conference
games is 25,400, land for the four re-
served seat games 35,676. A similar
increase is shown in student and fac-
ulty demand which last year amount-
ed to 4,267 by Sept. 29 and at the
present time totals 15,696. When the
applications for the Vanderbilt and
Marine games are added, the total for
students and faculty reaches 24,597.
Alumni have applied for 2,964 tc-
kets for the Vanderbilt game, 7,312
for the Marine game and 12,314 for the
Minnesota game, while the figures for
student and faculty are as follows:
Vanderbilt, 4,398, U. S. Marines, 4,503,
and Minnesota, 4,363. Since the 13,000
maximum fixed for the Ohio State
game has been reached, $17,157.50
have been returned to alumni foi
whom there are no accommodations.

control of the University Glee clubs
and all men who intend togo out for
the club are asked to report from
3:30 to 5:30 o'clock and from 7:30
to 9 o'clock Monday in the upper

Glee club is starting under difficulties
this year, for at present there are no
standing members in the club.
All those who have had any vocal
experience are asked to tryout. George
Oscar Bowen, director of the Glee
club, will give all the tryouts a
chance to sing in quartettes this week
so that the membership of the club
may be determined. The club is also
in need of an accompanist and ex
perienced pianists along this line are
asked to report.
John M. Russel, '24, manager of the
Glee club, is leaving Monday night
for Chicago where the Intercollegi-
ate competitions to determine the
best school glee club in the middle

To New TheatreI
In Opening Play
Hubert Henry Davies' vivacious
comedy, "The Mollusc" was presented
with great effect last night at the
Whitney by the Michigan Repertory
theater. It was the first performance
of this company in Ann Arbor.
The play itself is very 'amusing.
It deals with the type of lady who sits
in a chair-"the only comfortable
chair in the room"-and complains
of excessive weariness. When she
gets up in the morning she blames
this lassitude on the excitement of
the night before; after a long day's
rest she sighs for a good night's
sleep to recover from her fatiguing
The comic situations that naturally!
developed from the combination of,
this mollusc of a woman with a little;
worm of a husband, a blustering bro--
ther, and a pretty governess were well
handled by the capable and happily
chosen cast. William Franklin as the
husband was especially effective. ie
is the sort of actor who makes one
laugh by simply standing with his
hands in his pockets.
If the Michigan Repertory Theater
satisfies all its audiences as complete-
ly as it did those who attended itsj
opening in Ann Arbor last night, thei
project will eventually be a success.f
"The Mollusc" was a good play, but
it was also a play that anyone could
enjoy. Those who came to admire
art were not disappointed; and the
others, hoping against hope that they.

President Marion L. Burton, in
speaking of the Michigan Repertory
Theatre movement yesteday, made the
following statement: "The Michigan
Repertory Theatre is meeting one of
the most obvious and at the same
time serious needs of this University
and community. We must not criti-
cize our tastes and standardis in any
realm without attempting to provide
the means by which they may be im-I
proved. In the dramatic field in par-
ticular the lovers of real art are
forced to lead impoverished lives.
Many very practical difficulties con-
tribute to this result. Now we have
a chance to prove what our real he-
niands are. The Michigan Repertory
Theatre is organized and directed by
those whose training, experience and
standards of judgment can be relied
upon to present to us plays of the
highest merit. To fail in our support,
generous and continuous, of this en-
terprise will be conclusive indica-
tion of our actual needs. We pro-

Omaha, Neb., Sept. 29.-(By A. P.)-
Nineteen killed, three missing, nearly
a score seriously injured, and almost
a million dollars property damage
were the results of a combined torna-
do and cloudburst in western Iowa
and Nebraska Friday night.
In Council Bluffs, Ia., fire followed
the tornado and destroyed warehouses
and private homes. The rear of the
Strand theatre was hurled into Indian
creek. Twelve houses in a row were
ota lly demolished. From three to six
feet of water ran through the busi-
ness section and the damage was set
at approximately $250,000, while five
persons were known to be dead.
Peculiar Disaster at Louisville
Louisville, Neb., was the scene of
a peculiar disaster when eight mourn-
ers were killed when the house shel-

A. A. Ward, a physician of Marquette,
Neb., was killed when, blinded by
rain and hail, he lost control of his
car which turned over in the ditch.
Several persons reported missing at
various points are believed to have
been carried away by the streams
which are swollen out of their banks
(ue to the heavy rainfall.
Another deluge of rain and hail
struck the city tonight and lasted
about an hour. Cots and blankets for
the homeless were obtained from the
Red Cross and a school house is being

Football in the east and central

none of the contests were of import-
