Staffers in the ABC command post (below) orchestrated miles of cable and millions of dollars worth of equipment into place. It even took the Goodyear blimp to beam Michigan Stadium into 15 million homes.

Sharp-eyed technicians were glued to ABC monitors (above) while friends and family of Russell and Marge Weid (below) clustered around the set at 307 Snyder St., just a football field away from the stadium. Weid (in M cap) has missed only two home games since the stadium was built 50 years ago on land his grandfather owned.

20,000 Gather At 'M' Stadium In Moratorium Highlight Yesterday's "moratorium" protest against the Vietnam war remained peaceful through its climax last night with a Michigan Stadium rally, where approximately 20,000 persons, mostly University students and faculty, cheered a dozen speakers including Sen.Philip A. Hart, D-Mich. U-M class attendance was estimated by U-M officials as 60 per cent below normal for a Wednesday, usually a busy day on the U-M academic Schedule. Local expressions of criticism of the "moratorium" were also peaceful, consisting mainly of a few dozen porchlights and auto headlights turned on in daylight hours, a statement by the local Veterans of Foreign Wars commander, and a number of "Win the War" signs in store windows.
