Yell King Issues Call For Student Support In preparation for the Indiana game, Yell King Martin Pesek today issued six suggestions to students seated in the card section to assure better co-ordination in the traditional half-time card stunts. (1) Cards should be in proper order and ready to flash as soon as the first half ends, since the flashes are prepared to coincide with the band formations. ((2) No one should leave their seats in the card section after ten minutes of the second quarter have been played. Empty Seats (3) If there are empty seats, all persons should move toward the center of the card section so that only the edges have to be filled. This will make it easier to fill vacant seats. ((4) Cards should be held with the long side horizontal and the short side vertical. (5) Signal for raising the cards will be the chant: "'One, two, three, UP!" The same signal will be used for lowering: "One, two, three, down!" Don't Tear (6) Since paper cannot be obtained as in pre-war years, stu dents are asked not to destroy their cards. Later in the game, they will be passed to the aisles. Corn Cobs will collect .them so that they may be re-used a later home games. There will be a change in the order of card stunts. This should be kept in mind by all the students planning to sit in the card sec tion. No. 1, a football with a red "N" will be No. 3. No. 2, the words "Hi Hoosier," will be No. 4. No. 3, the words "Bo plus Bernie", will be No. 1. No. 4, the word "Hoosiers," will be No. 5. No. 5, a red "N" will be No. 2. The cheerleader will remind the section before each stunt which number is next. Close attention by these students will be nec essary because there will be very little time between stunts.
