Few Good Student Seats Overshadowed by Distributio
By TOM WALSH
'J'HE EXTENSIVE publicity accorded the Student Legislature's
attack upon the scandalous handling of student football tick-
ets distribution has overshadowed the far more basic question of
the overall student seating which has been aptly called a "stink-
ing mess" by one irate student.
No, 25 to 40 yard line tickets for students are not exact-
ly a myth. The story is, however, that only 816 seats have
been reserved for students in this favored location. From
this half of section 24 the Senior and Grad tickets go down
to between the 5 and 10 with the Junior seats running
around to the corner oP the end zone.J
The great body of insignificant sophomores and freshmen
have been relegated to positions extending from that corner
across the end zone to the far edge of the field.
Thus far most of the righteous indignation of the cam-
pus has been centered upon the "unethical" undergraduates
who fraudulently obtained the "good" seats of the upper
classes. However, a general uproar can reaaonably be pre-
dicted for after today's game, when the great bulk of the
campus finds itself, as one student put it, "right behind the
"WHY IS FOOTBALL being played at the University?" is a
question which should be answered officially either by the
Athletic Association or the University administration to the sat-
isfaction of all the students.
It would be nice to believe that football is considered a
school sport, played by our fellow students for the student
body. If this viewpoint were in good repute here at Michigan,
the students would have been given a preference on tickets
and the majority of us would not be sitting in the end zones
with portable radios this afternoon.
Instead, it is all too apparent that Michigan students can
take their places humbly after the priorities of the alumni and
the Almighty dollar.
In spite of the rather dubious excuses that the school
must pay off the bonded indebtedness of the stadium and fi-
nance its athletic program by the game receipts, as well as
cater to influential alumni, this is still a university and WE
are the student body. Is it asking too much, then, to have the
students sit where they can watch their team play?
SOME BIG TEN schools like Purdue divide the stadium down
the center, seating the students from one side of the 50-yard
line and the alumni on the other. Had Michigan approached
ticket distribution with even this degree of preference for its
students, nearly two thousand of the student tickets in the end
zone would have been between the 35 and 50-yard lines. Such a
distribution would have meant that each of us would have been
some 15 yards closer to the 50 than our seats are now located.
Certainly many of us will some day be alumni and will
be equally as eager to see the games as the present group.
Still, any school is run for the benefit of its current students
and the school's athletic contests are supposed to be, or at
least should be, conducted primarily by and for the student
The practice of giving the students the left-over tickets to
their own football games has grown steadily worse here for years.
It is about time that we received an honest statement of policy
from the University regarding the present sorry plight of stu-
dent seating. It is time, too, that the present policy of catering
to the alumni and the box office at the expense of the students

DETROIT, Sept. 27-(I)-Bob Fel-

The Indians overcame a four-run

Feller, who entered the game in

Bob Kuzava, fanned five of the first
eight men to face him but it was not

Outlaw went down swinging at the

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 27-St. Louis
pennant hopes hit a new low tonight
as the Cardinals dropped into an
exact first place tie with the idle
Brooklyn Dodgers by bowing to the
Chicago Cubs 7-2: Each club has on-
ly two games to play.
Thus the slumping Red Birds, who
had held tight to the National
League lead since Aug. 28, found
themselves in a wild scramble to
force the Dodgers into a three-game
While the Cards take on the
Chicago team tomorrow night and
Sunday in single games, the Dodg-
ers play the Boston Braves, the
team with which the Cubs are scrap-
ping for third place.
Most press box observers were in-
clined to favor the probability of a
tie after tonight's results and there
was every indication that the world
series would have to be pushed back
to make room for the extra games.
No longer a matter of future plan-
ning Manager Eddie Dyer picked Har-
ry (Th Cat) Brecheen, who has been
able to beat the Cubs five times this
season, to go after tomorrow's
game. His opponent will be Paul
Erickson, a right hander, who got
the job when manager Charley
Grimm had *o call on Hank Wyse
in relief in opener after Hank
Borowy had uo give way because of
a blister on his pitching hand.
Borowy, who had beaten Howie
Pollet, the Birds' ace, last Sunday in
Chicago pitched the same kind of a
ball game and. actually won by the
same score although he couldn't fin-
Failure of the St. Louis hitters was
the reason for their defeat although
Pollet, plainly showing the strain of
carrying most of the pitching bur-
den, was not at top form. Not until
the eighth inning did the Cards score
as they had managed to tally only
nine runs in their last six starts.
The handwriting was on the wall
for Pollet as early as the third inn-
ing when the Cards' No. 1 boy and
20-game winner, staggered around
the premises under a three-hit at-
tack that yielded only one run.
Only the fact that Borowy, who
opened the inning with a single, was
picked off first base kept the Cubs
from lowering the boom on Pollet at
that early hour.
Stan Hack's first single, followed
by a walk to Lou Stinger and a run-
scoring single by Ed Waitkus brought
manager Eddie Dyer to the mound
for a conference with his ace. He de-
cided to stick with him dand Pollet
got out of the inning.
He wasn't so lucky in the fourth
when singles by Hack and Stringer
with two out following a walk to Bill
Nicholson and Marty Marion's boot
of Billy Jurges' hopper sent him to

YANKEE STADIUM, New York,
Sept. 27-Tony Zale, every inch a
champion, came back from the verge
of a knockout tonight to flatten the
mighty-punching Rocky Graziano in
the sixth round of a blood-and-
thunder brawl and retain his World
Middleweight Championship. Zale
weighted 160; Graziano 154..
Floored once himself, his face a
bloody mass as the dynamiter from
New York's lower eastside turned
loose his famed "rock-a-bye punch,"
the one-time Indiana steel millhand
caught up with the challenger mid-
way of the sixth to drop him with a
lightning left hand and put him
away for keeps at 1 minute 43 seconds
of a sixth session of their scheduled
It was the second knockdown of
the fight for Rocky the Rock, in as
vicious and bloody a brawl as has
been seen in any ring. But this sec-
ond time, apparently softened up by
the body bombs that are Tony's spe-
cialty, he couldn't make it to his feet

Referee Ruby Goldstein,bhimself a
.classy welterweight of a bygone era,
counted the full ten to leave the 160-
pound crown on Tony's head in his
first defense as champion.
The finish was as startling as it was
definite and final and one of the
greatest crowds ever to see two little
men in action roared for ten minutes
in shocked surprise at the suddenness
of the end.
For, up to that point, through three
of the last four completed rounds,
Graziano had given Tony a going over
so fiercely and ferociously with his
right hand, that when the fifth round
ended, some ringsiders were even
wondering whether the Champion
could come out for the sixth. But out
he came, bleeding from his mouth,
his face a smear, and Rocky started
right in again. Then, suddenly, Tony
caught Rocky against the ropes with
two of those "Tummy Torpedo" spe-
vials of his. The Rock covered up,
came half way across the ring.
