They Came, Saw ...
Saturday's gridiron opener with Michigan State proved a real
'first' for a handful of University students.
They had arrived in Ann Arbor from all parts of the globe
within the past week. Most of them had never seen a football
game before.
LIKE OTHER UNIVERSITY students, they waited in line
for their tickets, waded through the crowds to the stadium and
tried to keep their eyes glued to the ball throughout the game.
Unlike those seated about them, however, they found yard-
ages and single wing back formations held as many mysteries
as the English language.
Two of the spectators-Sibyl Fischer-Baling of Berlin and
Jutta Gruetzner of Munich-wasted several hours of sympathy on
the "M" eleven until they discovered in the course of a dinner
conversation that our side had come 'out on top.
"EVERYONE TOLD US to watch the people around us if we
weren't sure which side was winning," Miss Gruetzner explained.
"The other side seemed to cheer so much more loudly that we
were sure Michigan had lost."
To most of the newcomers, football resembled most closely
the more international sport of soccer. In fact, in those coun-
tries which have felt the European influence more strongly
than the American, soccer itself is known as football.
Those who had been used to soccer experienced some difficulty
locating the ball during the opening minutes of the game. They
expected to find it on the ground and were amazed when they
discovered players running with the ball in their arms-something
strictly foi-bidderi in soccer.

students who arrived last week from Germany are shown

decided that German "brause" resembles pop closely.

students as a whole evidenced a keen interest in the game. All of
them said they intend to follow the team through the remainder
of the season.

BIG MISTAKE of Michigan Students -_



"You've just graduated. You're through

learning texts. Now you're pounding the
sidewalks-job hunting. Your prospective
employer pops the big question: 'What
experience have you had?'
"I've seen a lot of Michigan grads fum-
ble this one. Too many fall short in prac-
tical experience. In our business, practical
experience is just as important as that
"So why wait? Get that much-needed
experience NOW-at The Michigan Daily.
Take it from me, The Michigan Daily rates
with us employers. We want people who
