Students are asked to secure
their tickets early as the railroad
would like to determine as soon as
possible the number of coaches
needed on both trains. There will
be a night train and a day train.
It is anticipated that a large
number will make use of these
trains, as the Michigan allotment
of 15,000 tickets for the game has
been sold out, and the trains will
furnish practically the only "legiti-
mate" means of travel for the stu-
dents, as the driving of automo-
biles to football games has been
banned by the University officials.
These will, without doubt, be many

Not unavenged has been Michi-'
gan's defeat at the hands of the
Indiana football team Saturday,
dispatches from Bloomington indi-
cate. The suddenly inflated bubble
of Hoosier pride has already been
ignominiously burst-by men of
It all started Saturday evening
when Pat Page, who then thought
of himself as the victorious Hoosier
coach, staged a one-man parade
through State street and the Union,
displaying the ball with which the
winning touchdown had been made.
Pat had chalked up the score, in
the largest letters the size of the
ball permitted, and boasted to all
and sundry that by Monday the ball
would repose in state in the trophy
case back at Indiana.
Oh fickle pride! Did Pat think
that men of Michigan would permit
him so wantonly to a-d injury to
insult? Did he forget that deep
in the heart of every Michigan un-
dergraduate was ingrained the les-
son taught by the ancient incident
of the little Brown Jug at Minne-
sota? Or was he just careless?
Anyway, when Pat's lungs and
feet grew tired of parading, he
slipped the football into his suit-
case and left it in the Union check-
room-left it there unlocked.
Then there was a football din-
ner to be enjoyed, and after the
dinner forms of merriment best
known to the football players them-
selves. All this time, the suitcase
containing the trophy football was

reposing, still unlocked, in the Un-
ion checkroom.
It was late when Pat and his
charges forewent the pleasures of
ringing the welkin and hurriedly
picking up their suitcases, boarded
the Pullmans which were to carry
them back home. Little cared they
for football or football games; they
thought only of slumber.
But just now the thought of one
particular football is uppermost in
Pat's mind, for when he opened his
suitcase yesterday, he found the
ball missing. Indignantly he wired
to Michigan concerning the loss.
Officials here knew nothing of it.
Mr. Simmons, in the Union check-
room, was sure nobody had entered
to remove the ball from the bag.
But the ball had vanished.
Somewhere in the University is
a true and loyal genius-or some
genii-whose glory remains unsung.
Anonymous tribute should be paid
to the brave soul who took Pat
Page's football, to the honor of
Michigan and disgrace of Indiana.

Cast Members Gather At Mimes
To Take Photos For Use

As the first step in advance
preparations for the 1928 Union
opera, costumers, photographers,

many who were otherwise con-
cerned with the event, gathered at
Mimes theatre Sunday for the se-
lection of costumes for the taking
of' photographs to be used for
publicity purposes all over the
Milton Peterson of the Peter
March organization of Detroit, the
institution which has charge of the
costuming for this year's show,
brought with him his staff of de-
signers, fitters, and other experts
who assisted in preparing the men
for the pictures.
In addition, Paul Stone of the
Raymour studios of Chicago, one
of the outstanding artist photo-
graphers of theatrical people in the
country, was in Ann Arbor to su-
pervise the taking of the pictures.
His staff of technicians and artists
accompanied him and assisted in
arranging the poses. Among the
students whose pictures were taken
were William Reed, '30, Harlan
Cristy, '29,William Brown, '31 and
Daniel H. Buell, '30A.
Naming of the opera is being
considered at the present time, ac-
cording to Shuter. A number of
names have been submitted, but as
yet, none has been selected. It is
probable that the name of this
year's opera will be definitely tied
up with the show rather than
merely have a remote connection
with the opera book, itself.
Final arrangements for the itin-
erary are almost complete, accord-
ing to Paul Buckley, general man-
ager of the Union, who has charge
of arrangements for thehopera.
Buckley stated yesterday that all
probability the itinerary will be
made public by the end of this

noon by the association.
The Gridgraph is an apparatus
which, with the use of lights, shows
every play, the position of the ball,
and the players taking the prin-
cipal part in each play, just as
the details are received by wire
from the stadium where the game
is being played.

Zeppelin Will Land At Lakehurst
After 6,000 Mile Trip From
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Oct. 15-Graf Zep-
pelin, proud aristocrat of a long
lineage of aircraft, cruised trium-
phantly up the mid-Atlantic coast
today to show herself to millions of
Americans who had followed with
intense interest and some anxiety
the progressof her record-breaking
voyage from Friedrichschafen, Ger-
The great silver ship made her
bow to the waiting continent at
9:45 o'clock this morning, eastern
standard time, when she was sight-
ed from Cape Charles, Va., north-
ern promontory of-the entrance to
Chesapeake Bay. Behind her were
not only 6,000 miles of land and
water, but anxious moments when
a damaged horizontal fin had ford-
ed her to reduce speed, and long
hours of battling of winds that
were conspiring to keep her from
her goal.
Arrives-.At 10:10 A. M.
Triumphant over wind, weather
and ocean, she slipped over the
American coast at 10:10 a. m. at
a point six .miles north of Cape
Charles, and from then on, with
journeys end in sight, the sturdy
motors bore her comfortably over
the densely populated coastal plain.
She paid her formal respects to
Washington at about 12:30 p. m.
gliding over capitol and White
House beneath an overcast sky, and
then slipped north to visit Balti-
more, Wilmington, Philadelphia,
Trenton and New York, passing a
she went many smaller communi-
ties which, like their more populous
neighbors, saluted the vigorous voy-
ager from the street and house top.
It had indeed been a noteworthy
voyage, for at 2 p. m., when the
dirigible was over Elkton, Md., she
broke the world's mark of 108 hours
in the air, set for craft of her type
by the British R-34 in her west-
ward flight. She had also smashed
the distance record, for her mileage
was in the neighborhood of 6,500
Is First Commercial Flight
Graf Zeppelin, making the first
commercial flight across the At-
lantic, lifted her huge self aloft at
Friedrichschafen last Thursday
morning at 2 o'clock, eastern stand-
ard time .
Saturday proved to be a day of
anxiety for, that morning there
came a flash from the ship herself
that she had to reduce speed to re-
pair a damaged horizontal fin, part
of her stablizing equipment.
For several hours there was un-
certainty ashore as to how badly
the dirigible had been iurt, but
fears were relieved by a message
saying that temporary repairs had
been made and the ship was bear-
ing on toward Bermuda.
Seven o'clock this morning it was
to be the last day of her flight. She
was reported 100 miles east of Cape
Hatteras, and two and three-quar-
ters later came the flash that
America had been awaiting: "Graf
Zeppelin sighted off Cape Charles."
Hog Island, Va., spotted the silver
gray monster at 10:15 this morn-

New York did not know until
mid-afternoon whether Graf Zep-
pelin would pay her respects to the
metropolis, but when the word was
flashed that she intended to swing
over the skyscrapers, the city pre-
pared an impromptu welcome. The.
city's official welcome to the dirig-
ible's officers, crew and passengers
> is scheduled for tomorrow when
they arrive at Lakehurst.
