Demand for tickets to the Holy Cross football game this afternoon drained heavily the supply of tickets remaining at the Harvard Athletic Association yesterday. Every seat in the stadium, and the colonnade, on the colonnade roof and in the emergency stands constructed on the track was gone by the 10 o'clock yesterday morning. To prevent activity on the part of the ticket speculators, 8,000 of the 12,000 rush seats in the wooden stands at the end of the stadium were put on sale during the day. The remaining 4,000 tickets will be one the sale at the H. A. A. ticket office from 9 until 2 o'clock, and at the gates of the stadium from 1.15 until 2.30.
Although the demand for tickets to the Tufts game next Saturday will be far less heavy than for the Holy Cross game today, the authorities at the H. A. A. do not except a slack week. Five entire sections have already been reserved by the Tufts management, and arrangements are now being made to engage two more. A large public sale is also expected. Applications from Harvard men will be received until 6 o'clock on Monday, and tickets will be on open sale during the rest of the week.
