Alumni Returning
For Annual Games



Homecoming Crowds Are
Largest In Many Years;
Games This Morning
Pillow Fight, Cane
Spree Scheduled
Flag Rush Third Event; To
Award One Point Each
In Events Won
With the largest number of alum-
ni returning to the University for
Homecoming that has been seen in
many years, officials and students
were completing enthusiastic plans
last night for their entertainment.
Included in the events are the an-
nual Fall Games between the fresh-
man and sophomore classes, to be
held at 10 a. m. today on South
Ferry Field, the judging of the best
decorated fraternity house, the clas-
sic Michigan-Ohio State football
game this afternoon, and numerous
dances, .reunions, and other festivi-
ties for tonight.
Class games will bring to a con-
clusion one of the most spirited com-
petitions that has sprung up between
the two lower classes in recent years,
their spontaneous battles through-
out the past week reminding ob-
servers of the "old enthusiasm" that
alumni are fond-'of describing.
Meeting Places Named
Members of the first year class will
meet at 9 a. m. at the Union, and
sophomores at the same time at Wa-
terman Gymnasium, where they will
be painted with their class colors -
green- for the freshmen and red for
the sophomores.
From these two gathering points'
the two groups will proceed to the
field, where the games will be con-
ducted by the co-operative commit-
tee of the Union, under the direc-
tion of Lewis Kearns, '35. Kearns
stated that all members of the two
To Award Prize For
Best House Decoration
The committee which is to
award the loving cup to the fra-
ternity having the best decora-
tions for Homecoming will make
its selection at about 11 a. m. to-
day, driving about the city in a
special car to determine the prize-
The cup, now on display in the
window of a State Street cleaning
establishment, is to be presented-
to the winning house at the next
meeting of the Undergraduate
Prof. Preston E. James of the
geography department, Prof. Ar-
thur E. R. Boak of the history de-
partment, and two members of
the Undergraduate Council, Gil-
bert E. Bursley, '34, and Wilbur
Bohnsack, 34, will compose the.
judging committee.
classes must be painted with their
respective colors or they will not be
admitted to competition in the
Three Main Events
There are to be three main events,
the cane spree, flag rush,' and pillow
fight. Nine men will represent.-each
side in the cane spree and pillow
fight, and the contests will be under
no time limit, the match ending
when all opponentsare beaten.d
In the former, one man from each
side grasps a pick handle with both
hands, and the object is to wrest it
from his opponent. For the pillow
fight contestants sit on saw horses,
with lances made of long poles that
are tipped with stuffed guinea sacks,
and attempt to knock each other

from the horse.
Freshmen Defend Flag
The flag rush, usually considered
the best of the three events because
there is no limit to the number who
may take part, calls for two greased
poles with flags at their tops. These
will be guarded by the freshmen,
while members of the second-year
class attempt to get the flags away
from them. One point will be given
to the winner in each of the three
events, so that winning two out of
the three will entitle a team to be
named winner of the games.




Sanctum Of Males
At Michigan Union
Where, oh, where are the two wo-
men students who tried to enter the
Union by the front door two years
ago? They landed in jail for trying
it that time, but 'today they could
do it without the least bit of trepi-
dation, for officials have decided that
women students and visitors may al-
most have the "run of the building"
on game-days.
They may come in the front en-
trance without so much as a side
glance toward the spot where George,
guardian of the men's seclusion,
stands. They may even proceed
downstairs to the Taproom, while
traditions fall with loud crashes in
the background.
But, men of Michigan, there is still
hope, for they have to leave those
sacred places by 9 p. m.~
Bands Meet In
Old Rivalry On
Street And Field
Solemn Tribute To Farrell
Will Be Central Feature
Of Elaborate Display
Scarlet coats and dark blue blous-
es will vie again today for supremacy
in the music field as the Michigan
and Ohio bands meet on the street
and in the Stadium in another of
the series of annual encounters.
The blue wool and yellow leather
of Michigan's "Fighting Hudred"
will shine not only in a series of
maneuvers requiring extraordinary
skill, but will pay tribute to the
memory of the late Stephen "Steve"
Farrell, spelling out his name and
standing rigid at attention while a
trumpeter sounds "Taps."
What the n a t t y scarlet-caped
white-spatted band of the O. S. U.
regiment will do in the way of be-
tween-halves maneuvers is still a se-
cret in Ann Arbor and in most of
Columbus, but public announcements
have been made that the Buckeye
band will play "Who's Afraid of the
Big, Bad Wolf?" and "Don't Give a
Damn for the Whole State of Michi-
gan," and officers of the Michigan
band were aware yesterday that riv-
alry between the two sparkling units
would reach a pitch not seen in re-
cent years.
A committee of officers of the Var-
sity Band will be on hand shortly '
before noon as the first special Ches-
apeake and Ohio train carrying the
band and spectators pulls in over the
Ann Arbor Railroad tracks.
Soon after 1 p. m. "The Victors,"
with "Across the Field," hard on its
heels, will crash out on State Street
as the two bands set out from Mor-
ris Hall on their lively march to the
Stadium, where they will separate for
another year.
State Band Goes To Sea

ial)-Michigan State College's 75-
piece military band, unit of the State
R. O. T. C. regiment, left here today

Cheering Not
Good Enough,
Alumni State
There has been much comment on
the poor showing of Michigan's
cheering at games both at home and
abroad, according to Thomas Rob-
erts, '34, head cheerleader. At the'
Michigan Club dinner last Thursday
night at the Detroit University Club
many of the alumni present re-
marked that they missed the brand
of cheering which was exhibited dur-
ing their years on the campus, Rob-
erts said.f
The Ohio State game, being per-
haps the most important game in
the country today, should be sup-
ported with cheering of the same or-
der, he added. Michigan will have
attendance enough, Roberts pointed
out, and all that is needed to pro-
duce the best cheering in years is
enthusiastic support.
It is especially important for those
students sitting in the cheering sec-
tion to read the directions on the
back of their tickets 'carefully and

to follow. directions faithfully. Above
all, it is essential that these students
keep their cards intact until the last
stunt has been performed and not
destroy them when the game is half
over, Roberts said.
