As soon as the doors to the H.A.A. ticket office closed at 5 p.m. yesterday, the first freshman arrived to establish a line of prospective ticket buyer that by 11 p.m. numbered 14.
Most of the group were holding down their places, or their beds, for an hour at a time, to be exchanged at the end of the hour with other members of various ticket buying syndicates. The largest number of tickets ordered with any one syndicate was 60, and the salesman was out taking more orders, hoping to raise the total to over 100.

Although senior and junior demand was unusually heavy, Frank O. Lunden, H.A.A. director, said that total sales for this Yale game are "no higher than usual."
