University Seats
Completely Sold
More than 2,000 cheering stu-
dents gave the football team a
rousing send-off yesterday at a
last minute rally in front of Yost
Field House.
Planned only a few days ago
by Dick Balzhiser, '55E, former
Michigan grid star, the rally start-
ed at 2 p.m. when students con-
verged on the Union.
Led from the Union by Phi Gam-
ma Delta's Fiji Marching Band
and the Taylor House Marching
Band, they marched en masse to
the Field House.
Enthusiastic Rooters
The enthusiastic rooters were
led by cheerleaders perched on a
ledge over the Field House en-
trance until Master of Ceremonies
Howard Nemoravski, '55E, mount-
ed the platform.
Chants of "Hold that line,"
were sent up as a bus came up
State St. towards the Union. Aft-
er a few minutes, the line gave

troduced first. "Bennie said vic-

to win most and has the courage,"
he said, adding, "We've got the

Ron Kramer, '57, Michigan's bid
for All-American honors, said
"I'm just scared."
Lou Baldacci, '56, following
Kramer, told the crowd. "After
Ron's great speech, I haven't got
a word to say."
Sold Out
An estimated 1,000 students will
invade Columbus, Ohio for today's
climactic battle. OSU's Director
of Ticket Sales George Staten
said Michigan's entire allotment
of 6,000 seats were sold long ago.
Scalpers are reported to be get-
ting .$20 and $30 for tickets.
Excitedstudents talked contin-
uousy about Michigan's Rose Bowl
chances, largely dependant on to-
day's game. Some appeared opti-
mistic while others said, "We're
hoping, but it's an uphill fight."
One enterprising student capi-
talized on partisan feeling by bet-
ting on Ohio State and getting a
point spread of up to six points.
Michigan will be two touchdown
underdogs at game time.
An exasperated teacher told her
class yesterday morning, "Why is
everybody talking so much? The
game doesn't start for a day and
a half."
Panel Discusses

It is difficult for many students
to adapt themselves to the inter-
racial society which exists, Dean
of Women Deborah Bacon said at
a Canterbury panel discussion last
Dean Bacon continued that in a
large university such as our own,
students are primarily concerned
with their own existences, and
adapting themselves emotionally
to the problem is a big step for

PITT SURGH OP)-- Two sad
sacks from Penn State will be
in the bag for the University
of Pittsburgh today when the
schools renew their traditional
football rivalry here.
They're two luckless lads who
invaded the Pitt campus last
Monday with paint brushes in
hand for a little pre-game dec-
orating expedition. Trouble is,
they got themselves caught by
the brothers of Pitt's Pi Kappa
Alpha fraternity.
They've been held captive at
the fraternity house since.
Today at halftime they'll be
wrapped up in a big burlap bag
and dumped in front of the
State cheering section.
Their captors refused to re-
veal the identity of the pair.f

Novelist Discusses Writing Career

... OSU sharpshooter-

You can always tell when people care about something, according
to novelist John Dos Passos, because "they scream in unison."
Today, Dos Passos believes, they scream when someone steps on
the toes of the managerial, or bureaucratic class.'
What's happening in this country, in the creation of a new mana-
gerial class, Dos Passos said, is the same thing that has happened in
a more extreme form in Russia.
Spoke on "Jefferson's Times"
The novelist, who came to Ann Arbor to give a speech Thursday
evening on "Jefferson's Times," declared "when I was a kid" big
business was a vested interest, which couldn't be attacked.
Since his trilogy, "U.S.A.," was written in 1936, "the whole picture
has changed," he said.
Dos Passos, who "hadn't intended to do it as a business" started
writing professionally when he came out of the army after World War
I, because "I had a lot of things on my chest."
