Twenty-one Counterfeit Pasteboards
Revealed by Investi-
gation
TO MAKE THOROUGH SEARCH
Athletic Association Authorities Offer
One Hundred Dollars Reward
for Conviction
Discovery of counterfeit tickets used
for admission to the Pennsylvania
game of last Saturday has been made
by the athletic association.
Immediately after the forgeries had
been made certain by piecing together
the two parts of the tickets the de-
partment offered a reward of $100 for
information leading to the arrest and
conviction of the offenders. In all 21
of the forged tickets have so far been
discovered.
All of the cases so far discovered
were pasteboards for seats #i, the
north stand. Some of them were in the
cheering section. The lack of knowl-
edge of the seating arrangement of
the stand has caused the association
to believe the work was done outside
the city, probably in Detroit, and was
done by persons not connected with
the University. Some of the admission
cards were for seats not in the stands
at all, but the offenders got seats.
Floyd Rowe director of intramural
athletics, discovered the work of the
counterfeiters first, and spent a busy
afternoon during the progress of the
game in persuading the holders of the
counterfeit tickets that their presence
was not desired with the tickets they
held.
Without exception the holders of the
tickets stated that they pad procured
the counterfeit admissions from stu-
dents or others on the streets, some of
them at a premium. Some of the
guilty holders objected to leaving the
stands in such a degree that police-
men had to be called to see that they
were escorted from their places.
Mr. Rowe said last evening that
every effort would be made by the as-
sociation to bring the offenders to the
courts.
From the appearance of the forged
tickets it appears that a zinc etching
had been mado of an original, and the
reproduction of gridders in action had
been made of that. The ticket was
gray in color while the genuine gas
white. The back of the ticket con-
tained several misspelled words, due
to the fact evidently that no letter
"D's" were in the size of the type
used. The dollar sign in o.ne place
on the ticket where the price was
given was also omitted in all the at-
tempted duplicates.
The associationshas also offered a
$25 reward for the apprehension of
ticket scalpers who operated on a
large scale before .the contest. It is
believed that several hundred paste-
boards were in the possession of the
scalpers. Cases have been uncovered
where the scalpers demanded as high
as $15 for seats to the fray. The price
asked for seats never was less than
$, with choice seats selling atmuch
higher than that amount. One party
of eight only saw the game after $50
had been paid for seats.
Punishment for the offense of scalp-
ing includes a fine of frm $25 to $100,
and a term of imprisoment up to 0
days
Inthe seven years since Mr. Bart-
elme has been director of outdoor ath-

letics this is the first year that forgery
has occurred. The Philadelphia firm
which printed the tickets for the Penn
game furnished a sworn affidavit as
to the number printed. All the tickets
received from the firm were checked
up before being sold so there can be
no doubt that someone forged the 21
tickets which have so far been brought
to light.
Authorities stated yesterday that
tickets to be printed next year would
be done by steel engraving, and would
be much larger than those which have
been torn apart at the entrance gate
during the past. This will be done
in an endeavor to cut down the possi-
bility of further forgery in the future.
Dents Meet Fresh Lits This Morning
Because the dents were unable to
play off Monday's tie game with the
fresh lits in the interclass football
schedule yesterday afternoon, the
game has been arranged for this
morning at 11:45 o'clock. Manager
Anderson of, the yearlings, wishes all
freshmen on the team to be present on
South Ferry field at that hour.

Bull Dunne is the only member of
the 1916 Varsity football squad with
the exception of Captain Maulbetsch,
who will receive his third football
"M" this year. ,
Bull played on the 1917 fresh aggre-
gation and he has been cavorting with
the Varsity footballers ever since.
If Michigan had cleaned up against
Cornell and Pennsylvania this year,
there is but little doubt that all of the
critics would give Dunne careful con-
sideration in their selection of All-
American teams. In fact, one eastern
critic has already written Ann Arbor
asking for information with regard to
the work of the Varsity left end, which
shows that Bull is receiving attention
as it is.
It is doubtful whether there is a
man in the country who has shown'
the stuff that Bull has this year in
catching forward passes. Michigan's
style of attack in this connection has{
been characteristic of Yost, in that the
Maize and- Blue has clung to long
throws and paid but scant heed to the
short basketball tosses over the line.
This means that the ends have had to
handle throws which have traveled
from 30 to 50 yards and obviously ac-
curacy is much more difficult. This
means that the'extremity men have
had some tall traveling to do on sev-
eral occasions and Bull has been equal
to the emergency.
Some of the most spectacular catches
ever seen on Ferry field are attributed
to Dunne and he is popularly ac-
credited with making the greatest
catch ever seen at Cornell. The Cor-
nell rooters were talking about
Peach's throws and Dunne's catches
long after the game was over.
Dunne has probably shown more im-
provement over his work of a year ago
than any man on the Michigan squad.
Last year he was a mediocre player
at best, but this season he has been
one of the most brilliant players on
the team. With Peach and Martens
playing first class football, it was up
to Bull to deliver if he wanted the old
position, and he did so with a venge-
ance. Peach and Martens never had
a look in at the left extremity after
Morry got started, and they scrapped
it out for the position at the other end
of the line.
Bull has three letters to his credit
already and when he pulls down two
more this year-one in football and
one in baseball-he will graduate with
the proud distinction of possessing
five "M's."

WOULD HAVE PITTSBLTRG MEET
BROWN IN CHAMPIONSHIP GAME,
New York, Nov. 21.-Quiet work was
begun here today by football enthus-
iasts all over the east to bring to-
gether the great football elevens in a
post season game to decide the eastern
championship. If possible it was hoped
to stage this contest the Saturday fol-
lowing Thanksgiving Day which
would be Dec. 2, or even the following
Saturday. The Polo Grounds, New
York's massive athletic field is favored
as the site. Brown and Pittsburg ath-
letic authorities so far have maintain-
ed a reticience that amounts to virt-
ual acknowledgement, that they will
not agree to such a meeting but the
fans are going after it with a spirit
that refused to be denied.
Several weeks ago an effort was
made to get the sanction of coaches at
the two schools and telegrams were
sent to Coach Robinson at Brown, and
Coach Warner at Pittsburg. Warner
immediately wired back the school of-
ficials would not countenance such a
meeting declaring it savored to much
of commercialism. Last year such
commercialism did not stop Pittsburg

fromhasking a meeting withuC
which then was the only unb
team in the east. Cornell refus
the same ground as that advance
year by Pittsburg.
