Redman, president of the Shk-kasaw Athletic Club said yes- erday that requests for season reserved seat tickets for the Chicks and Paps football games this fall, lave been exceptionally heavy and that only About 50 or SO of the re-served box seats remained to be sold. 'There seems to he more interest I Ins year than ever before," Mr. Redman said, "and all indications point to a good season at the gate, fact, the demand for reserved .scats is so high that we may have to mark off a portion of another section." Mr. Rodman urged that all persons desiring box or reserved seats for the season to gel their reservations in to him -so that the sale of these tickets can be completed before the season starts. "If the demand justifies," he said, "we plan to plan a reserve lion of Section C in the stad- um." At present only Section B. located immediately in front of the press box, is reserved. The increase of interest in the hicks nnd Paps was indicated last .veek when a sou lion o[ the fence unrounding the team's new practice field had to be taken down in order to provide a'parking place for persons watching the daily workouts. Approximately 100 "rail birds" gathered at the field to watch yesterday's .scr: linage.
