vocated that students no longer be
privileged to buy the three extra seats.
He further stated that Michigan was
the only university in the country
that followed such a procedure, but
that its abuse was being carried too
The Ann Arbor police force has
been called in to alleviate the situa-
tion. Yesterday two men not mem-
hers of the student body, were arrest-
ed at the ticket office, and on Satur-
day plainclothesmen will be spread
through the crowd for the purpose
of picking up-scalpers. According to
a Michigan state law, a $100 fine or
80 days in jail can be levied on any
person caught illegally selling tick-
ets, and Tillotson said that there is
every intentioi of enforcing this law.
Any student caught scalping will also
lose his identification card until
June, thus being leprived of admit-
tance to all athletic events,.~as well
as being referred for disciplinary
action to the Dean's office.
When the supply at the ticket
office is exhausted, the only - place
where tickets may be legally pur-
chasel is the Union Ticket Exchange.
Tickets may be bought o0 sold at the
Union Student Offices every day un-

Ceithaml's Substitute Beiicheii
With Severe Shoulder In jury

Fate dealt Michigan football hopes
one from the bottom of the deck yes-
terday when team physician Dr.
George Hammond announced that
Elmer Madar, second team quarter-{
back, would be unable to play in Sat-,
urday's tilt with Minnesota and
would probably be out for at least two

w .
Hammond, he is suffering from an
incomplete fracture of his right
shoulder blade.
The junior field general was first
injured in the Iowa fray and he fur-
ther aggravated the hurt in the Pitt
contest. Since then he has done
only light work, but the injury has
failed to respond to treatment.
As a result, varsity quarterback
George Ceithaml will probably be
called on for another 60' minute per-
formance against the Norsemen. If
any mishap should befall Ceithaml,
Coach lritz Crisler will have to turn
to two inexperienced sophomores,
Charlie Haslam and Johnny Green,
for the quarterbacking chores.
Also jogging around in sweat suits
at yesterday's practice session were
Al Wistert, brilliant Wolverine tackle
who played the entire game against
the Wildcats, and second tea(n center
Ted Kennedy.
B6th men will be ready by Satur-
day but at the present time Wistert
is ailing with thigh muscle strains in-
curred in the Evanston struggle,
while Kennedy is trying to work out
a charley-horse.
Yesterday's drill was featured by
an hour and a half scrimmage ses-
sion against the Red Shirts. The lat-
ter took the ball during the first part
of the fcrimmage, executing Minne-
sota plays and formations. Then the

* Student Pep Rally
* Little BrownJug
Daiy Sports Editor



* * * *
IT'S BEEN a standing joke for a long time now up here at The Daily to
write editorials about school spirit or lack of it.
According to most of the world- vise Daily editorial writers, who
would prefer to solve the foreign situation or the labor problem or the
national defense emergency every day, this matter of school spirit ranks
right along with keep-off-the-grass campaigns. And therefote is to be
disregarded as unimportant. And maybe they're right; I don't know.
BUT WHEN TOM HARMON, probably Michigan's most publicized alum-
nus, breaks out in public print in a Detroit newspaper with the flat
declaration that the University students have virtually no spirit, no enthus-
iasm for the football team, it's a regrettable matter. For Harmon is abso-
lutely right-from past experiences.
ON THIS CAMPUS. And if there ever was a perfect psychological set-
ting for a pep rally, this Friday is it.
BIGGEST REASON, of course, is the number one grid attraction not only
of the week but probably also of the season, to be played Saturday in
the Stadium between Michigan and Minnesota. No student of football need
be reminded of the seven consecutive lacings the Wolverines have taken
from the Golden Gophers of the North, of the heart-breaking defeat
Michigan's mud-shackled machine took at Minneapolis last year.
At stake also, of course, will be the Little Brown Jug, one of foot-
balls most traditional trophies emblematic of Gopher-Wolverine grid
rivalry down through the year. It has roosted up in Gopherland almost
as long as Roosevelt in the White Houwe. And as Fielding H. Yost de-
clares: "That Little Brown Jug belongs at Ann Arbor. That's its home
And if we get just one little finger in the handle Minnesota will have to
cut off an arm to get the jug."
ANOTHER VITAI REASON why the student body should not let the
Wolverine team down is because the team has not let it down:. This
Maize and Blue outfit started the season with only fair rating by outside
experts. But it has fought and it has scrapped and it has refused to give
up. And thus it goes into the Minnesota clash undefeated and ranked as
the nation's number three combination. !
Most satisfying win, of course, was that turned in last week over
Northwestern. An uphill struggle all the way, the game was tucked
away in the last period only because an aggressive, alert Michigan team
had an unquenchable desire to win. A team like this current Wolverine
crew deserves support.
NOW THE MEMBERS of the Varsity "M" Club and the Men's Union have
put a lot of time and effort into formulating plans for a gigantic mass
pe-P rally to be staged Friday nightNat Yost Field House. It entails a great
deal of policing detail on the part of the "M" Club. And it takes a lot of
organization and responsibility for possible property damage on the part of
the Union.
The Daily is behind the affair whole-heartedly. The Varsity Band
will perform. Coach Fritz Crisler will give a pre-game lgwdown of
Saturday's crucial clash. It's possible that either Ted Husing or Bill
Stern, ace rBS and NBC sportscasters, will air the rally over a coast-to-
coast hookup.
IN SHORT, EVERYTHING IS ASSURED but student support. That's
up to you.

Tom Harmon Out
Of Sunday's Clash
NEW YORK, Oct. 21. -(IP)- Bill
Cox, president of the' New York
Americans of the American Pro Foot-
ball League, said tonight Tom Har-
mon, Michigan's All-America half-
back of 1940, would not play with
the professional club Sunday.
Cox said pressure of Harmon's
radio duties in Detroit made it im-
possible for the halfback to p'ractice
with the Americans and in fairness to
both the public and the player, Har-
mon would not participate in the
game with the Buffalo Tigers.
All letter winners are to report
at 7:30 p.m., Friday, at the Field
House. You are supposed to wear
your sweaters. Numeral winners
are to wear their sweaters also.
