THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Band Plans Spectacular Show HonoringRu
* # " #
Perhaps the most "spectacular
band display of recent years will
hit the gridiron today as the Mich-
igan Marching Band pays tribute
to former University President
Alexander G. Ruthven.
Composition of the show has
been completely"shrouded in sec-
recy, and with the exception of
band members themselves no one,
including Ruthven, will have any
inkling of what has been planned
until half-time at the game today.
According to band members and
band director William D. Revelli
it will be, weather permitting, one
of the best and one of the most in-
tricate tribute shows ever per-
PLANS FOR the performance
have been long' in the making.
The whole show has been planned
since last summer, and the musi-
cal scores especially made for it.
Formations will depict scenes
from the boyhood of Ruthven
until his retirement. His inter-
ests, hobbies, and various fea-
tures of his administration here
will all be included in this tri-
The main purpose of the show
is to honor Ruthven as an inter-
ested and loyal friend of the band
during all his years here as presi-
dent of the University, according
to Revelli. Plans for the show were
a complete surprise to Ruthven
who had no idea about it until it
was announced officially.
THE ONLY damper so far has
been the continuous rainy weather
earlier this week which prevented
the band from practicing their
routines on the field. This has
been a little discouraging, Revelli
said, because only continuous
practice brings the perfection of
timing and quality of performance
for which the Band is noted.
The last time a performance
such as this was given was in
honor of Fielding H. Yost, former
football coach at the University.
Flash cards will make their first
appearance of the season at the
Homecoming game today, Wol-
verine Club publicity chairman
Tom Harris, '52 has announced.
These cards were instituted to
enable spectators to take part in
stunts instigated by the cheer-
They will be placed behind the
seats in designated sections of the
stadium. Participants in these sec-
tions are asked to read carefully
the instructions attached to the
cards and to follow them.
By watching the cheerleaders,
spectators will know exactly when
to raise the cards. They are to be
held slightly below eye level.
At the conclusion of the stunt,
flash cards will be collected at the
Football Attendance Survey
To Be Held at Stadium Today
The football stadium will be-
come the scene of a research sur-
The survey is part of a general
experimental program sponsored
by the National College Athletic
Association during the current sea-
son to study factors affecting foot-
ball game attendance.

DURING THE three remaining
home games audiences will be giv-
en questionnaires designed to find
out who comes to football games,
where they come from, how strong
their interest is in the game and
other information of interest to
The University is one of several
schools acrossethe country which
has been chosen by the National
Research Center for the study of
The questionnaires will be dis-
tributed by boyscouts to selected
areas in the stands, including stu-
dent sections. They will be passed
out and collected before the start
of the game.
"Everything in Photo graph y"
TO BE FETED-Ex-President Alexander G. Ruthven will be
honored by the University's Marching Band during half-time
ceremonies at today's game. The contents of the show was kept
a strict secret until recently and the exact details of the per-
formance are still unknown.
ON WITH THE SHOW-Prof. William D. Revelli, director of
the Marching Band will ready for all kinds of weather when he
conducts the band during the special ceremonies honoring Ex-
President Alexander G. Ruthven today. He may well need the rain-
cot, as the weatherman predicts rain.
