How Yale Used Football Tickets
A statement recently published in the Yale Alumni Weekly shows that of 33,089 tickets distributed for the Harvard-Yale game this year, Harvard used 15,940 and Yale 17,149. Of those used by Yale, the football squad took 1,550, the University used 5,934 and the graduates used 8,939, the balance being made up by tickets for Yale benefactors, old "Y" men, emergency and band tickets. It is interesting to note that the Yale Faculty used 466 tickets, and that the college freshmen, who are allowed only one ticket each used 281 as against 477 for college sophomores, 748 for Juniors and 766 for seniors, the popularity of football evidently rising with the ranking of the men. The cheering section, taking 325 tickets, was smaller by half than in the last eight years.
Yale's overdemand was a little over 3,000 and Harvard's returns were about 600.
