BIG CROWD WITNESSES FOOTBALL TEST CLASH

REFEREES' PENALTY SIGNALS ARE GIVEN TRIAL

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Approximately 500 people, of whom about 200 were football coaches and officials of Eastern schools, crowded the sidelines on the Business School Field yesterday to watch a demonstration game between the "Florida" and "Michigan" squads yesterday afternoon.

The game, in which "Florida" again triumphed, this time by a score of 2 to 0, was explained throughout by W. R. Okeson, commissioner of Eastern football. He distributed among the coaches sheets describing all the new rule changes and then explained every rule as an illustration occurred on the field. A new system of signals for the officials was also tried out. Under this arrangement, when a penalty occurs in a game, the referee or the umpire will immediately flash a signal which will let the men in the press box know just what penalty was exacted.

The game itself was listless and, because of the numerous purposely imposed penalties, dragged out to undue length. Florida had the advantage over its Northern rival threatening to score several times but it was always repulsed. The only score of the game came in the second quarter on a freak play. After a long exchange of punts, in which A. W. Huguley '31, kicking for Florida, had a decided edge on M. J. Finlayson '32, the Michigan booter, the ball was deep in Michigan territory. On an attempted kick, Finlayson spiraled the ball over his head and it fell back of the goal line, where it was recovered by one of his teammates, giving Florida a safety.
