The - Ticket Question...
To the Editor:
WITH RESPECT to expressions of opinion and
criticism of plans that may appear in your
columns, I feel that I should not indulge in
comment. As to the plan on the basis of which
football 'tickets have been distributed, it will
suffice for me to say that it is my function
merely to carry out the directions of the Board
in Control of Intercollegiate Athletics. That
Board, I happen to know, is proceeding accord-
ing to a plan recommended after considerable
study by a student committee in the years just
before the war.
When, however, assertions of purported facts
are given space in your columns, and those as-
sertions are untrue, I feel that is not only my
privilege but my duty to make the necessary
corrections.
These observations are prompted by the com-
munication purporting to be signed by one Anita
Shubble, appearing in your issue of Sunday,
October 6th. This communication is, in a way,
more important than almost any other that you
have published, because it purports to be a state-
ment of facts by an employee in our ticket of-
fice. Your correspondent states: "Having worked
in the Auxiliary Ticket Office at the I. M. Build-
ing for the last month, I am qualified to re-
port accurately for actual ticket sale polidies
that led up to the present unfair situation."
It should be noted in the first instance that
there is no such thing as an Auxiliary Ticket
Office in the . M. Building or any other build-
ing, and Mr. Riskey, who is in charge of the
Intramural Sports Building and the office
there, tells me that there is no employee there
by the name of Anita Shubble, and that there
never has been an employee there by that
name.
While that should be enough to discredit
completely the succeeding statements in the
letter, may I go on to deny categorically the
truthfulness of each and every one of the six
succeeding statements made in the communi-
cation. I have never heard of any tickets sold
to any Rotarian group; the Ann Arbor High
Athletic Department has not been complimented
with hundreds of seats in section 24 or else-
where; no tickets, much less any "flood" of them,
has ever been made available to "prominent
Republicans" either at "republican prices" or at
any other prices; the WWJ Sports Department
receives no more privileges. to purchase tickets
than those accorded to any other radio station
or newspaper; there were more than 128 seats
for students in section 24.
The fifth charge had to do with complimen-
taries donated to the Detroit Veterans' Hospital
It is true that the Board has arranged for a
limited number of complimentary admissions to
wounded veterans to certain games. At no time,
however, has the number been significant, and
their seats were not in Section 24.
Just one more word. Your personal attention
was called to the fact yesterday afternoon that
there was no employe in any ticket office or
elsewhere by the name of Shubble. I am more
than a little surprised that you should have
contented yourself with the bare statement pub-
lished in The Daily this morning that I made
denial of the charges. Would not a little more
honesty have suggested a statement that at least
that part of the communication was known to
be false?
Very truly yours,
Andrew S. Baker,

To the Editor:
1 O THE GIRLS that criticized Mr. Cassell's
"Peachy" feature, I might say that they
apparently didn't get the opposite sex's point
of view. As there are 13,000 males and only
4,900 females on campus, I would say that
any article or picture of female pulchritude
would be highly appreciated by the majority
of the students. Or does the majority count?
I was interested in the feature for it seemed
to me to bear out the fact that the fifth one
doesn't always come to Michigan.
-Bill Courtright
Walsh AnusversCharge
KENNETH J. O'MORROW has taken exception
to a statement I made in a Veterans Notes
column recently. The column stated that "vet-
erans in school are charged out-state rates for
tuition" while they are in school regardless of
their homes.
"Should the tuition and supply expense of
any in-state veteran amount to more than the
allotted maximum, however, the law provides
that his tuition shall be 'reduced to normal rates
charged other in-state students, or at least a
sufficient amount to bring his expenses within
the quota.
The fact that the University of Michigan
follows this procedure which is required by law
has been substantiated by Mr. Jory, the Uni-
versity cashier.
