Michiigan Spirit 'Busts' Loose Entirely
In Boisterous Gathering At
Hotel Statler
By Clarence Edelso.
Football stars, coaches, deans, B.
M.O.C.'s of former days-all of these
were present at the football bust
which was presented for the Michigan
team at the Hotel Statler last night.
All the notables supposed to be there
just were not there, for the national
gridiron dinner at Washington divert-
ed even Col. Lindbergh from the big
affair at the Statler-but there were
plenty of them here. Lindbergh's
boon companion, Maj. Tom Lanphier
of Selfridge field, took Luck's place,
and he piloted the vast throng of ap-
proximately 900 enthusiasts to the
celestial raptures of unconfined plain
ordinary "pep."
So hilarious were the proceedings in
general that Fielding H. Yost, actually
forgot his professorial dignity and
really lit that stogie which he explains
he first smoked at the 7-6 thriller at
Minneapolis last year. Everybody
of importance was at the Statler. Some
sent their excuses, though. Among
these for example, was Mayor W. H.
Thompson of Chicago, who said,
"Sorry I can't be with you tonight,
but I heard that most of you speak
Riot Breaks Loose
Pandemonium broke loose when theI
actual business of speaking com-
menced. Dean Mortimer E. Cooley,
surprise guest, started the discussion
with the real theme or the night, a
tribute to the grand Michigan team,
when hesaid, "I'm for them and for
them strong, God help them to win,
but if they have to lose, God help
them to lose as lose they did, like
gentlemen." Loads of former grid-
greats attended the shindig, as the
boys say. Four captains of Wolver-
ine elevens, Bob Brown, Ben Friedman,
Ben Oosterbaan, and Georg Rich at-
tracted most attention, but aside from
these there were the following: Judge
Willie Heston, (if you can call a
judge "Willie,") and he presented the
Varsity ringsyto the distinguished
gridmen; Shorty MacMillan, quarter-
back who called the play that beat
Minnesota, Conference champions in
1910, when Michigan was out of the
Conference, but already showing them
how to play the game; and there was
"Dutch" Marion, and P. P. Douglas;
and Tom Edwards, all-Americans; asnd
Harry Hawkins; and last but as they
say, not least Lain "Squib" Torbet
general chairman of the "Bust."
Many Celebrities Fail
To return to some of those other!
Michigan football players who could
not attend, Ruth Elder said, "she
would have beengglad to come, but,
she could not leave her husband."
Coolidge wired that he just "did not
choose to come." Some gentleman:
in a dark fedora hat, but who possess-
ed a soft smile, said "can't be in town,
and if I wuz, I wou'd have managed to
get another engagement. At any rate,
Michigan men, Michigan songs, Michi-
gan coaches and above all, Michigan
spirit filled the Statler ball-room. The
Statler never witnessed such hullaba-
loo, such blatant, stentorian, obstrep-
orous, sonorous-just plain noise
flavored with the delectable spice,
Michigan pep.

thoroughly enjoyed it," stated Presi-
dent Clarence Cook Little after see-
ing one of the performances at the
Whitney theater. "It is far more
tuneful and proceeds along a greater
speed and with more vigor than did
last year's Opera," he said.
"Of course the outstanding feature
of the show was the dancing of Lewis
and Dougall as well as their general
per:ormance throughout the two acts,"
declared President Little. "Both are
extremely talented and are valuable
members of the cast. I was glad to
