Over Here


It's stupendous, colossal, terrific-
and we mean it! If last night's re-
hearsal is a dependable indication, we
feel safe in predicting that the Ruth-
ven dinner tomorrow night will make
history as the most elaborate tribute
to a single individual ever seen in
these parts.
With Michigan's favorite sons ap-
pearing among the 2,600 guests who
will be fed at the Intramural Building
tomorrow night, the combined alum-
ni-faculty-student committee in
charge feel that they have placed
the crowning touch on the event
which has consumed so much of their
time during the past month.
Point Obscured
But behind all the fanfare the sig-
nificant fact seems to be becoming a
bit obscure. President Ruthven, the
fourth president in the history of
the University to remain in office 10
years, is the focal point of the huge
dinner and parade and well he de-
serves this honor.
More than a 1,000 students were
assembled last night for the dress re-
hearsal of the mile-long parade which
will be a central feature of the pro-
gram. Engineering skill and an em-
phasis on the grotesque combine to
give the pageant something of the
color and excitement of a circus pa-

row night will undoubtedly be a

hearsal, but in.case the elephant re-

F .:

At the kick-off of the Michigan-
Yale game Saturday some 80,000
spectators will witness a sight which
is expected to initiate a new tradi-
tion, the release of thousands of bal-
loons at the homecoming game.
Six thousand of the helium-filled
globes, bearing the Michigan and
Yale colors, will be released from
all parts of the stadium as the Uni-
versity band plays a special melody
about baloons.
Sponsored By WAA
The Women's Athletic Association
board, which is sponsoring the
scheme, and a corps of senior ROTC
officers are in charge of selling the
balloons from. 25 centers of distri-
bution encircling the stadium. They
will be assisted by 150 women stu-
dents. The balloons will be sold at
10 cents each from 12:15 p.m. until
a short time before the game.
Last year, after a similar undertak-
ing in Detroit, the balloons were
found to have traveled mansf hun-
dreds of miles, for some were located
in eastern Pennsylvania and a few
even grounded in Maine.
Helium is being used to fill the
balloons rather than hydrogen in
order to avoid any possibility of an
accident such as occurred last year
on the west coast when an explosion
resulted from the use of hydrogen-
filled balloons. The gas was pur-
chased through the government and
