In the course of the past few weeks
there has been much talk concerning,
the football ticket situation in the
University. The Daily has from time
to time attempted to express student
opinion on the subject, an irate alum-
nus has aired his grievances to the
public in an open communication pub-
lished in The Daily and other papersS
of the state, and the Athletic associa-
tion in its turn has defended the pres-
ent system of distribution.
Now the Alumnus makes its contri-
bution to the manifold utterances on
the subject in an article which gives a
clear analysis of the present system
of distribution, but fails to find any
remedy except a new stadium, "seat-
ing 100,000 or even 150,000 people."
The discussion is interesting, but it
is not a significant contribution to
the literature on the subject since it
passively accepts several principles of
distribution which are fundamentally'
For instance-"Much expression has
been given by alumni to a feeling that
a distinction should be made between
them and the general public in this
matter of securing seats for a big
game. The tax payers are believed
(by The Alumnus) to have just as
much right to a seat for a big game
as alumni-but it must be remenmber-
ed that the alumni do get a certain ad-
vantage, in that the application blanks
are sent to them and they are warn-
ed in advance of the day on which
their remittances should be sent,
whereas the general public does not
get such a warning."1
The Daily agrees with the many
alumni who state that they have a
prior right to tickets over the general
run of tax-payers. The tax-payers
who have a real interest in the Uni-
versity, who work to further its in-
terests are those who are connected
with the University either by be-
ing the parents or friends of students
and alumni or by having been once
students in the University. These can
be provided for through. alumni and
student extra tickets. The stadium
3annot possibly take care of the. mil-
lions of inhabitants of the state.
Therefore, there must be a selection
n the distribution of tickets in which
only those who'have the fundamental.
interest stated above would be taken
care of. The fact that alumni are 1
forewarned of the approaching ticket
sale is of little significance since the
public is also aware of the opening
Another matter which The Alumnus!
