Cold Columbus Freezes

COLUMBUS - With visions of

fans were forced to agree last
night that it had been a cold, cold
day in Columbus.

ed to voice loud sentiments over
the game.'
In downtown Columbus, a few
Wolverine rooters could be heard
singing "The Victors" or "Cali-
fornia Here We Come." They
were almost drowned out by
Ohio diehards who sang about
not giving something or other
for the whole State of Michigan.
Before game time, Ohio Stadium
grounds keepers worked for more
than an hour to remove tons of
snow from the huge tarpaulins
which had protected the gridiron.
Shortly after the tarps were re-
moved, the field was covered com-
pletely by a thick layer of snow.
UNTIL 2 P.M. rumors were fly-
ing that the game would be called
off. But then the Buckeye squad
entered the field and began its
pregame exercises. Michigan's
gridders followed them, and the
game finally got under way at
2:20 p.m.
At this time, the temperature
was 10 degrees above, and a 28
mile an hour wind was raking
the stadium. A scant handful
of fans sought shelter under the
stadium's upper deck, leaving
most of the giant horseshoe bare
of spectators.
During the afternoon, some 50,-
000 people found their way to the
game, but most of them didn't
stay long. Officials estimated that
no more than 20,000 were around
when the final quarter ended.
BOTH THE Michigan Marching
Band and the OSU Band attempt-
ed to present their usual half-time
shows. But cold weather sent the
usually straight band ranks askew,,
and frozen horns cut down the
volume of the music.

No Classless
Monday Here,
Daily Associate Editor
Although jubilant students spoke
hopefully of a Monday vacation
yesterday, Provost James P. Adams
announced that the Wolverines'
Rose-Bowl-deciding victory in Co-
lumbus would not affect the regu-
lar schedule of classes.
In announcing that the Univer-
sity would set aside no official
holiday, Provost Adams declared:
"It has long been an attribute of
Michigan teams to take victories
in their stride. They expect the
rest of us to do likewise. To carry
on as usual does not detract from
our pride in their achievement."
* * *
ECHOING his sentiments was
Dean Hayward Keniston of the li-
terary college, who asserted: "We'-
re used to championships; they're
nothing new to Michigan and we
don't need a holiday."
However, it seemed probable
last night that, in view of the
24 inches of snow in Columbus,
many students would be forced
to take a "holiday" whether they
liked it or not.
Despite the official announce-
ment, which stilled talk of cir-
culating "classless Monday" peti-
tions in the dormitories, students
still found much to "whoop" about
in the unexpected triumph of their
