OF NEW STADIUMi
Declares New Struciture is Needed
to Alleviate Ticket Shortage
SPEAKS AT BUST
Fielding H. Yost, director of In-
tercollegiate athletics speaking be-1
fore Michigan's entire football organi-
zation and more than 200 alumni andj
students at the annual Football Bust
Saturday night at the Board of Com-'
nierce in Detroit, stated that no allev-
iation of the ticket situation can be1
foreseen unless a mammoth new
stadium be constructed.
He declared, however, that the
building of a stadium was a dream
which may take years to realize, and
as far as he knew no such venture was
under way. Yost expressed pleasure
with the scheduling of the Navy con-
test for next year and referred to next
season's schedule as "the strongest
list of elevens challenged by the
Maize and Blue in several years."
After introductory remarks by
Charles F. Delbridge, '01L, president
of the University club of Detroit, Hal,
H. Smith delivered the main address
in which he paid tribute to the spiritj
of football and its .importance in
Coach George E. Little lauded the
team for its fighting spirit and ex-
pressed satisfaction with the new
schedule as a real test of the team's
ability. Captain Herbert Steger, '25,
and Captain-elect Robert Brown, '26,
spoke briefly, praising the team and1
predicting success next year.t
Football "M" rings were presented
to Herbert Steger, Philip Marion,
Walter Kunow, Ferdinand Rockwell,j
Edliff Slaughter, and Harold Steele,
seniors on the Varsity squad.
