Confusion as to the identity of the

at the Union dance last Saturday night
has led the Union dance committee tof
correct the asumption that this wasc

older than the original it represents,
and was decorated by the same man
who has added the score of the Min-

"In 1903 Michigan and Minnesota
played to a tie," Coach Yost said "As
a result of this tie game, there has
grown up one of the most interesting
traditions of football history, the tra-
dition of the "little brown jug."
"The "little brown jug" was used
by the Michigan in 1903 to carry drink-
ing water. After the game, it was dis-
covered by one of the Minnesota care-
takers, who concealed it until after
the Michigan team had departed.
Whenever Michigan and Minnesota
have played since 1903, the "little
brown jug" has been displayed at the
game and has gone as the trophy or
prize to the winning team."
