University is coicerned are being
alienated by a condition which can
be remedied.
The first and only complete rem-
edy is .found in a new stadium. The
structure is entirely inadequate for
the present-day conditions and should
be replaced when the project is finan-
cially possible. Most people consider
that the time has not yet come when
a campaign, such as would be essen-
tial, is practicable. Nevertheless, a
new stadium must be considered by
the Athletic association to care for
increasing demands.
The other remedy is found in the
revision of the present plan of dis-
tribution. The Athletic association
claims that it has the most fair scheme
in the country-that here the students
are giv'en a better deal than any other
place. On this point The Daily strong-
ly disagrees and in doing so wishes to
cast no reflections on the body con-
cerned. It is no doubt doing its best.
The time has tome when the alumni
and students should have a voice in
the determination of the plan used.
They are the ones most concerned and
logically should have the final say.
If necessary the alumni quota of tick-
ets should be reduced so as to give
more alumni a chance. In The Daily's
opinion they should not be given all
the best seats, buit each alumnus
should have at least a fighting chance
to secure his one seat and if any
are left extra tickets should be dis-
tributed on a fair basis. Students
should be given their share of the
best seats and should be blocked to-
gether in order that unity of spirit,
the only worthwhile feature of the
games may be promoted. In addition
they should be given a fair quota of
extra seats, probably two. ,
The Athletic association and the
University administration have a def-
inite responsibility in making sure
that those primarily interested in thc
'future welfare of the; institution and
upon. whom the institution is dependent
for its very existence be not alienated
by such a trifling matter as the inabil-
ity to witness a football game. A
change in ticket distribution is the
only way of fulfilling this respon

Upstairs, Nickels Arcade,



In the Daily yesterday was printed
a communication signed by an alum-
nus of the University in which is
given the attitude of many persons
concerning the ticket situation at
Michigan, and the consequent relation
of alumni and stndents to their Alma
Mater. Many points of the letter indi-
cate that the writqr is ignorant of the
situation confronting the officials of
the Athletic association. In many
ways it gives an unfair and unreason-
ble aspect of the situation. There is in
it 1his much truth, however. Ile isI
agreed, as nearly' all students andj
ahmuni who have considered the ques-
tion must be, that there is need for a
The Wisconsin feature of the situa-
tion is in no way the fault of the
Athletic association here. Two thous-
and tickets were sent for the use of
the University of Wisconsin, instead
of the 500 mentioned in the communi-;
cation. These were put on general
sale immediately on their receipt from
Ann Arbor, no special privileges be-
ing given to students until 1500
tickets had been disposed of. Then the
Wisconsin athletic association tried,
unsuccessfully to get more tickets
than the quota for which they had
originally asked. This represents
either carelessness in the estimation
of Wisconsin's needs, or failure to
comprehend what it means to have
capacity crowds, which is, by no way,
a thing seldom coped with at the
Badger institution of learning.
It is also plain that the alumnus
in question was not slighted any more
than two or three thousand other
applicants whose request for tickets
did not happen to be in the first mail
received by the Athletic association.
.It is obviously impossible to accom-
modate 50,000 alumni and the general
public in 17,000 seats set aside for
these classes of people. His failure to
secure tickets from the Michigan chap-
ter of his fraternity is not remark-
able when one considers that there'
were only five or six hundred stu-
dents on the campus who had an op-
portunity to get as many seats as
were allotted in former years.
The Daily agrees with Mr. hull,;
however, on the fundamental ques-
tion involved. As long as it is im-
possible for the majority of alumni to
renew their ties by returning at least
once a year for a game little can be
expected from that source of Univer-
sity support. And as long as the ma-1
jority of st'udents are limited to one1
extra ticket apiece, they can neither;
help out the alumni nor carry through1

for a student, when he wishes to tra
verse a distance of zany length, eithe

prospectus goes on, "Do you want to

The way to do it is to come to the

Quoting some more: "Those who
have been through the mill feel that
there is no better way whereby a
Freshman can find himself than
through these 'Discussion Groups'."
And then the snappy close:
"C'mon in the Water's Fine."
