(EDITOR'S NOTE: Martha Ann Hinkle. society editor for the Ohio State Lantern.
wrote the following column for the Daily of the invasion of the Ohio campus by
Michigan rooters during the Ohio State University vs. Michigan game last weekend.)
The weekend just passed found Columbus playing host to a horde of
Michigan students, with the campus and the downtown section vieing with
each other to entertain the guests. Every bit of furniture was removed from
the lobbies of Columbus' largest hotels . . . camp chairs remained as their
only furnishing. Every dine and dance spot was crowded to the doors from
Friday night around through Sunday, with traffic practically paralyzed for
the same hours.1
A goodly number of boys and gals from Michigan took in the Home-
coming Dance Friday at the Men's Gym, and many of them helped elect
Agnes Ondark 1938 Homecoming Queen. Strains of "We don't give *a damn
for the whole state of Michigan," were interspersed with "Yea, Michigan!"
and "Beat Ohio State!"
Michigan Students Lend Support .. .
Saturday dawned a gloomy, dismal day, but it was a little better than
the night before, which had been cold and very rainy. A huge crowd packed
the Ohio Stadium . . . The Michigan stands conspicuous with their blue and
maize. Barbara Heath and Gil Phares,
f+' ' 1 , Ann Platt and Bud Brooks were seen
gaily flaunting the yellow and blue.
. Jimmy Black left Law School to go down
with M. K. Adams.
After the game . . . well you could
spot a Michigan rooter at fifty yards,
"if you hadn't heard him already! The
happy faces were the Michigan faces, one look at expressions on Ken McCar-
ran's, Lew Haigh's, or Marietta Killian's told the glad tidings. Ever so many
of them missed the special trains back to Ann Arbor, so busy were they try-
ing to get State's goal posts. The goal posts didn't go, but it was at least an
hour after the game before the Michigan's were convinced. Just how they
all got home, we don't know.

Fraternities And Sororities Invaded

. .

As nearly as we can tell, just about every fraternity on the campus had
a dance Saturday night. The SAE's, the Sig Eps, the Phi Gams, the Phi
Beta Deltas and a number of other houses reported delegations from their
Michigan chapters, with almost all the other lodges-
fraternity and sorority alike-having one or two guests '
from the enemy camp. Elmer Gedeon, one of Michigan's T .
men whose "swan song," proved too much for us, was .
visiting Ohio brothers at the Phi Gam house and brother
met brother at the Beta house when B4b Griffin, Bill
Hines, Jake Beers and Bob Straub entered as part of the
Michigan delegation.
Apparently many of the invaders spent their time
wandering aronud the University district, spreading the
gospel to the Ohio State heathens. The Wolverines were everywhere.
Alpha Phi House Is Rushed . .
Sororities report that the business of getting dates for Michigan men
was rushing Saturday night. We happened to be at the Alpha Pi house
when the Tekes called and said they had three Michigan men there who
wanted dates, and that little occurence was typical of what went on at all
the houses.
It was fun, all of it. Ohio State women met perfectly strange Michigan
men and violent arguments were begun. Threatening looks followed all
Michigan students who entered any of the campus hang-outs and general
cheering and hilarity were the order of the day.
Yes, it was fun, but just wait 'til next year. Will we show you,!

Dofey, Dog-Faced Fox
Comes To Tragic End
"He floats through the air with
the greatest of ease." They might
have sung that about the man or.
the flying trapeze in. his heyday,but
they never could have sung that to
Dofey any of the time.
Dofey, christened Dofatslef, short
for dog-faced -two-legged-fox, Dofey,
the A.K.L. wonder, had delusions of
grandeur about his flying ability. And
Friday afternoon at five o'clock they
came to an inglorious end-both he
and his delusions.
It all happened when he thought he
was a better one than we are; he
wanted to fly off the back porch.
Usually he lived under a bed, and at
times in a cage out on the roof. But
because someone left the top off the
cage, Dr. William Burr, curator of
mammals at the University Museum,
is going to have the opportunity to
dissect a throwback in the fox fam-
ily, namely Dofey.
However, some of the fellows in the
Alpha Kappa Lambda house are
slightly glad that something hap-
pened. None of them liked the idea
of having the lining eaten out of their
shoes, nor their clothes being muti-
lated. In fact, Dofey was becoming
ar roant and so he became the pro-
verbial dog, biting the hand that fed
him;.and in several cases that wasn't
any joke. I
