Believing that an understanding of
the ticket arrangements for the M. A.
C. game will eliminate dissatisfaction,
I am pleased to subnmt information ad-
ditional to that contained on ticket
application cards. The cards state
that student coupon is not good to-
ward the purchase of $1.50 tickets. It
fails to state that the $1.50 reserva-
tions are those only between the 35-

Schlanderer Seyfried

During the week of Sept. 25, there
was held in the grand central palace
of New York, the second annual na-
tional exhibition or chemical indus-
tries from which it was easily dis-
cerned that an epoch-making year in
the history of the American chemical
industry was nearing its completion.
The curious were given an oppor-
tunity to regard the skill and ingenu-
ity of American obemists, but prob-
ably the exhibits which excited the
greatest interest were those showing
American made dyes and colors, due
to the wide publicity given to all coal-
tar products, both by lay and trade
journals since the beginning of the
Manufacturers "f bases, crudes, in-
termediates ai finished colors by
their combined displays, amply prov-
ed that America, is sufficient within
herself, and that the time is not far
distant when practically all dyes and
coloring matter will be manufactured
in this country. For years Germany
has had this industrial field monopol-
ised, but her inability to meet the en-
ormous demands, due to her war-time
occupation, has given rise to extensive
experimentation on the part of
American manufacturers, with the re-
sult that three-quarters of the Amer-
iean consumption is now of native
source, whereas before the war, but
6,000 of the 200 tons used were of
home manufacture.
Despite the disfavor into which the
home products have been thrown, it
is now generally understood that Am-
erican made dyes and colors are by no
means inferior to the German product.
It is the avowed purpose of American
chemists to disabuse the minds of
consumers of this idea as quickly as
possible. Dr. J. M. Matthews, in an
address before the American Chemi-
cal society is responsible for the state-
ment that the government is not pat-
ronizing home industry as it should.
According to Doctor Matthews, Direct-
or Ralph, of the bureau of engraving
and printing, had claimed to be unable
to procure lake red, Chinese blue, or
Prussian blue from native materials
and had placed an order for 145,000
pounds of tlfese dyes with German con-
cerns, asking the government of Eng-
land to lift the embargo that it might
be gotten into this country. It was'
elicited from the head of a large man-
ufacturing establishment then present
that his firm had never even been ap-
proached "npr had an inquiry been
made of his firm for the furnishing ofI
this class of goods."I
It was generally agreed at the meet-
ing of the society that but two things,
were needed to establish this infant
industry upon a secure basis. First;
was necessary the exploitation ofI
home products, and second the pass-I
age of certain legislation to prevent
the "dumping" of dyes and coloring1
materials, and to restrain unfair com-1
petition on the part of foreign manu-
facturers which might follow the ces-I
sation of hostilities. Protective meas-
ures have already been begun, both on1
the part of individual manufacturers'
and the government.
Prof. A. H. White of the chemistry
department, made the statement yes-i
terday that a local shortage of dye-
stuffs was one of the smallest mattersj
of concern to manufacturers and con-E
sumers. Such shortage, however, - is
being speedily obviated, and it is the1
general belief that a few years will see
America a worthy competitor in the1
field which she was forced to enter by
certain existing European conditions.
Mountings Added to Zoology MuseumI
During the past summer some in-

teresting animal mountings were add-j
ed to the museum of the Zoology de-l
partment in the natural science build-
ing. Among these were three rareJ
mountings of a muskrat, an otter and2
a skunk, which were made by Her-<
man Mochen, instructor in zoology,t
during his spare time this summer.

Yale: Plans have been made for a
gigantic pageant with a cast of over
8,000 people to be held in the Yale
bowl, October 21, at the celebration
of the 200th anniversary of the
founding of the university.
Syracuse: Coach Kean of Syracuse
University is making an urgent ap-
peal for men to make up a strong
cross country squad to meet Mich-
igan's team on October 28. ,
Notre Dame: Next Friday is Found-
er's day at the University of Notre
Purdue About 700 upper classmen
and co-eds took part in the annual
junior-senior parade this year.
Oregon: The push ball contest has
been discontinued this year at the
University of Oregon in the annual
fresh-soph mix and a cane rush sub-
stituted in its place.
Cornell: Enrollment at Cornell Uni.-
versity was very close to the 5,000
mark at the end of last week.

Ohio: There is a man on the cmpus
of the Ohio University who eni a-
eers more "scoops" than any journ-
alist of the college papers. He con-
trols the university's steam shovels.
Oberlin: With a registration of ap.
proximately 1,050 now, Oberlin cel-1
lege's enrollment limit of about 1,100
is nearly reached.

Union Dining Room Open to lae
The Michigan Union will be open to
ladies on Wednesday nights for din-
ner from now on, as well as Saturdays
and Sundays. In connection with this
announcement the management states

yard lines, and comprise less than 25
per cent of the seating capacity of
the two stands; that the M. A. C.
management requires at least one-
third of this 25 per cent for sale among
their alumni, and that the M. A. C.
students receive the same relative
position for their cheering sections in
the south stand which our students re-
ceive for their cheering sections in the
north stand, which is just beyond the
35-yard line at the east end of the
field. In add.Xion to the cheering sec-
tions, there are over 2,500 seats be-
tween the 20 and 35-yard lines, which
are available to students and their
friends. Assuming that about 3,000
students will apply for reservations in
the cheering sections in the north
stand, it is apparent that our students
will be, extremely well taken care of
in the M. A. C. game providing they
get their applications in by the end of
this week.
Some consideration should be given
:to the fact that accommodations avail-
able on Ferry field will be many times
better than could be obtained if the
game were played at Lansing, owing to
the limited capacity of the M. A. C.
stands. Not a few of our upperclass-
men Will recall how very undesirable
were the reservations allotted to not
more than 25 per cent of our student
body attending the game at Lansing
two years ago. Stop to consider that
eight of our nine football games are
played on our home grounds ths sea-
son, that you secure on your student
coupon during the college year not
less than sixteen dollars' worth of
tickets, figured at their minimum value
per admission, and that Ann Arbor
contests with M. A. C. and Syracuse
have both been arranged this year at
a financial loss both to Michigan and
the visiting teams. Are we conced-
ing too much to our alumni and the
alumni of these institutions when we
set aside for their accommodation
less than 25 per cent of our reserva-
tions for which accommodations, bear
in mind, they pay 50 cents extra per
ticket? Does any student claim that
reservations anywhere between the
20 and 35-yard lines are undesirable
on either the north or south stand of
Ferry field?
If you get your application in by
the end of the week, it seems reason-
able to estimate that you will be in-
side the 20-yard lines. If you delay
making an application beyond that
time, it seems more than likely that
you will be beyond that lane, but even
then your reservations will be far more
desirable than could be obtained on
M. A. C. stands, for which you would
be called upon to pay from 50 cents
to $1.00 extra per ticket.
The Syracuse game arrangements
are similar to those of the M. A. C.
game, expect that students are ad-
mitted at the gate on their coupons.
The same limited number of tickets
as $1.50 reservations are at the dis-
posal of Michigan and Syracuse
alumni and patrons.
I trust that this explanation will
satisfy our students that we have en-
deavored to give them an exceptionally
strong schedule of home games, and
that we are treating both alumni and
students fairly in the distribution of

Gamma Alpha Meets at New House
