1914 : Wolverines Hope To Have More Fans At M.A.C. Than Aggies

October 11, 2021 all-day

In preparation for the trip to East Lansing On October 17, the Wolverines are hoping for a big turnout since the trip can be made for less than $3 and since student passbooks will be honored at the gate. The railroad has announced a round-trip fare of only $2.46. Thanks to the success of the team at the De Pauw game, and the fact that the Farmer clash at the Michigan Athletic College will be their only opportunity to view a game on foreign territory should ensure a good turnout, particularly since the cost of attending games at Syracuse and Harvard will be too much for the average student. Plus the intense antipathy of the Wolverine rooter for an Aggie is expected to prove an irresistable magnet.
