TENSION MOUNTS-Michigan State Coach John Kobs lets loose
with a few words as Michigan endangers the Spartan lead in the

Dick Radatz held Michigan batters in check for eight innings
and then bore down to stifle a late Wolverine rally, as he led his
Michigan State teammates to a, 3-2 victory at Ferry Field yesterday.
The sparkling performance by the 6'5", 240-lb. Spartan hurler
spoiled Michigan's Big Ten opener for some 1,000 fans, who had
gathered in a damp stadium to witness the contest. The Wolverines

State Treasurer Sanford A.
Brown last week promised funds
to the large state universities.
Since the Veteran's Trust Fund
liquidation plan did not pass the
Senate Thursday, Brown obtained
the funds from the almost-expired
state general fund which is fed by
tax dollars.
These funds will enable the Uni-
versity to meet payrolls Thursday
and May 5, and will postpone a
possible payless payday for Uni-

The state also sent $2.6 million
to Michigan State University yes-

ment of $6.7 million is the state's
regular monthly contribution to
the big three state universities.
Brown said the state is still be-
hind "about $15 million" in pay-

Senator Hits
Fund Vote
The Democrats are using the
Veteran's Trust Fund as a politicalR
football, Lewis A. Christman (R-
Ann Arbor) charged last night.
He voted Thursday with sixteen
other Republicans and five Demo-;
crats to defeat the bill to use the
Veterans' Fund.
Christman said that if the Re-
publicans make up the majority of
the votes in passing the bill to use
the Veteran's Fund the Democrats
will label the GOP as the partyi
that "did it to the veterans" in
the next elections.
Christman said that he would
compromise his position and vote
for the bill only if Gov. G. Mennen1
Williams can get nine Democrats1
to make up half of the eighteen
needed to pass it.
Before he votes for it, Christman
said, he wants positive proof that
it is needed, not just phoney fi-
nancitl statements that have been
placed on my desk by the adminis-
tration. The statements from the
State Treasurer, Sanford A.
Brown, and 'the controller don't
even agree, he added.
One of the main problems, hef
said, is that the Democrats refuse
to compromise and then charge
the Republicans with the subse-
quent failures.

Police Error,
r. r
For Arrests
A misunderstanding within the
police department apparently was
the reason police took University
students out of class to serve war-
rants on them, Ann Arbor Police
Chief Casper M. Enkemann said
He said he liad understood that
the usual policy would be followed
-that students would be called to
the Office of Student Affairs and
met there by police.
In the future, he continued,
"we're willing to do it ,that way,
even hi the aggravated cases."He
said Wednesday that students were
taken from class only in "aggra-
vated cases" in which they ignored
notices sent them.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis said Thursday
that he and Enkemann h d agreed
that in the future this would not
happen and the usual policy would
be followed - that police would
work through the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs except for serious

how the patrolman assigned to

students' schedules. Three deans
said Thursday they did not know

the literary college, Associate Dean
Walter J. Emmons of the engineer-
ing college, and Dean of Men
Walter B. Rea.

day that about a dozen Uhiversity

The importance of increased aid
and thought being given to the
housing needs of underdeveloped
countries of the world was stressed
yesterday by Harold E. Stassen.j
Stassen, previously governor ofj
Minnesota, university president
and high ranking member of
President Dwight D. Eisenhower's
administration, spoke at a lunch-
eon of a regional conference of
He noted three basic materials
man needs: food, clothing and
shelter. Great gains have been
made in both food and clothing,
Stassen commented, but in the
area of housing there are great
Make Gains
The West has made g r e a t
strides forward in the last 10 years
in the distribution of food, as well
as in production and diet, he said.
There has also been progress
made in the Communist countries
along this line but not to such a
degree, Stassen added.
Many gains have also been
made in the clothing of undevel-
oped countries in' the last five
years, he said. One of the reasons
for this, he cited, was that textile
industries are the sort of light
industry that canbe set up easily
in backward countries.
For millions of people, on both
sides of the Iron Curtain, housing
doesn't even come up to minimum
standards, he added.
Must Improve
Architects must in the next few
decades work to improve the
housing conditions throughout.
the world, he said.
One of the problems to be
solved, he added, is to utilize the
local materials in the underde-
vefoped countries to, build im-
proved housing. For any large
housing development no country
can afford to depend solely on
imported materials.
It must be also realized that the
ideas and facilities that may be
adequate and possible in ad-
vanced countries, will not work in
backward parts of the world,
Stassen said.
Problems to Solve
Also toebe solved, hersaid, are
the problems of more rapid re-
building of the slum areas of the
Another basic need is for archi-
tectural schools in the backward
countries. of the world, Stassen
said. These are both fields in
which the architects can be of
great value, he added.
There must also be changes in
the areas into which foreign aid
is channeled, he said. More money
must go into housing and devel-
opment of heavy industry.

Maintain Segregation
Handfuls of Europeans who deny
Africans the right of franchise and
maintain segregation to insure the
colonial position are halting the
development of 150 million people
on the continent. "Only when we
resort to riots and uprisings does
the rest of the world show any
interest in our problem," Mboya
And then, he added, they get a
distorted view which eliminates
the oppressive tactics of the colon-
ial nations. The nationalist leader
cited the "police-state atmos-
phere" in Angola and Mozambique'
and the "extensive franchise quali-
fications" in Uganda and Kenya as
examples of little-known Euro-
pean methods.r
,Coming to the United States,
Mboya explained that he wishes to
show people why Africans are
struggling for their independence.
This country, he emphasized, and'
the rest of the world must recog-
nize that his people "belong to-,
gether in a united federation."
Must Have. Rights' _
While oriented to democratic
methods, the "soon-to-be free" na-
tions of Africa must be given the
right to deal with both East and
West, Mboya added.
"If the United States allows
democracy to fail in Africa, the.
West will feel repercussions not
limited to the continent," he
pointed out.

er at the back of the wood frame


Colonial C ountries
Colonial powers are forcing African nationalists to use "violent
means" to obtain their freedom, Tom Mboya told an Ann Arbor
audience yesterday.
Explaining his view, the 28-year-old chairman of the All-African
People's Conference pointed out that his countrymen end the policy of
non-violence when they are con-
tinually denied the right of self-
determination. "European nations
who refuse to negotiate with na-
tionals cause the type of conflict
which has erupted in Algeria and
Central Africa," Mboya main-
"Granted our independence," het
went on, -"we will be able to unite
and raise economic standards of
the entire continent. Behind all
of our agitation lies the desire for
social improvement," Mboya ex-
plained in an address sponsored

U.S. Even
In Race
for Space
WASHINGTON ti'-Maj. Gen.
Bernard A. Schriever yesterday
rated the. United States and So-
viet Russia "about even" in the
race for space.
"We've made tremendous ad-
vances in the last five years," the
48-years-old Air Force chief of
missiles and research told a Sen-
ate space subcommittee.
Gen. Schriever also hinted that
missiles, satellites and other space
weapons may replace manned
bombers sooner than many think
as the foremost deterrent to ag-
Guidance Gains
Even though the Soviets
launched the first. satellite and
have put heavier payloads into
space, Gen. Schriever said United
States experts have made gains
in guidance, f.uel and other areas
of the scientific struggle.
"I have no reason to believe
that they are ahead of us in every
field," Gen. Schriever testified.
The subcommittee is double-
checking space programs and or-
ganizations. Gen. Schriever al-
luded to his suggestion of Thurs-
day that the Pentagon's space
unit, the Advanced Research
Projects Agency, should be elim-
inated- and its funds and func-
tions turned over to the Army,
Navy and Air Force.
The Air Force now is unable to
initiate its own space projects, he
testified, because ARPA has both
the funds and the responsibilities.
Sees No Division
Gen. Schriever contended that
a t p r e s e n t assigned missions
among the ground, sea and air
services alreasdy give the Air Force]
primary combat responsibility in
space. He said the Air Force sees
no division between. the earth's
atmosphere and space beyond it.
"We are in an unfortunate posi-
tion from a national budgetary
standpoint of throwing away the
old for the new," he said.
