Daily Sports Editor
Michigan will open its 1958 football season this afternoon at 1:30
p m. at Michigan Stadium against Southern California.
The Wolverines, racked by injuries throughout the pre-season
drills, have been rated a slight favorite by most prognosticators. How-
ever, no fair comparison of the teams can be made.
Team Looks Good
The teams look quite even when one compares notes. Both are
said to be bigger than in past years. Michigan finally has, in Don

Judge Halts-
TV Football
Ticket Sales
A suit filed by Rep. John J. Fitz-
patrick (D-Det.) in Wayne County
Circuit Court seeks to block the
showing of a closed-circuit tele-
vision broadcast of the University's
football game with Michigan State
University on Oct. 4.
The promoters of the closed cir-
cuit telecast, C. R. Smith Enter-
prijses of Detroit and GianTView
television network of Ferndale,
Mich., approached Michigan Union
President, Barry Shapiro last week
asking if the Union were interested
in sponsoring the telecast locally.
Approach Union
Because of the lack of time, the
Union was unable to close a deal.
However, Barry Shapiro,'59, Union
president, said that the Union
was negotiating with a group to
bring a closed-TV telecast of the
Ohio State game into Ann Arbor.
Shapiro declared last night he
was unable to tell at this time
whether the present situation
would interfere with possibilities
for the Ohio State same.
Orders Sales Stopped
Circuit Judge Theodore R. Bohn
ordered ticket sales for the tele-
cast into nine theatres in Michigan
and Ohio to stop' and for the
theaters not to prepare for the
broadcast. The hearing will be at
2 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 3-less than
24 hours before the game.
Under law, the hearings cannot
be set any sooner. However, Judge
Bohn explained that he could hear
the case on Wednesday, Oct. 1, if
lawyers for both sides signified
that they were ready to argue the
case then.
No immediate comment wa
available from Rep. Fitzpatrick.
Calls Telecast Illegal
The suit is based on a 1951 law
which states that it is illegal fo
a state institution to televise any
of its programs exclusively over a
closed circut.
University Athletic Director Frit
Crisler said that this does not in
volve the University since th
game is being played in Eas
Lansing under the auspices o
MSU. He added that the Univer.
sity had televised some 3 or4
home games into theatres durin
1950 before this law went int
effect, but dropped the program
as it was highly unsuccessful.
Games Sold Out
The tickets for the game a
completely sold out (Rep. Fritz
patrick has two tickets for th
game, which were given him b
MSU), but National Collegiat
Athletic Association rules forbi

cult television if there are an:

The Southern Cal outfit has the
advantage of having played one
game - in which they surprising-
ly downed the Oregon Staters,
21-0. The Oregon crew were
reigning champs of the Pacific
Coast Conference, and were ex-
pected to be tough again this
The teams also compare evenly
in speed. Both boastsome fast
backs, while Michigan may have
the edge in power. The Trojans'
ground game is wrapped up in
three fleet runners, Willie, Wood,
Bob Arnett and Rex Johnston.
Michigan also has speed in
Brad Myers and Fred Julien, but
these boys are also rugged when
hitting the line. Add to this the,
bruising running of captain John
Herrnstein from fullback and the
passing of quarterback Bob Pta-
cek, and one finds a diversified
offense ready to ,test the Trojans.
Injury Riddled
The condition of many injured
players is the key to Michigan's
chances for victory. Although
only two, centers Jim Byers and
Dick Syring, are definitely lout of
action, there are many other
frontline men who have been in-
jured in the past few weeks.

Federal Aid
Daily City Editor
University Regents yesterday
added $200,000 to student loan
funds, while authorizing applica-
tion for an additiona $250,000
from the federal government.
The funds would bring the total
available to $1,900,000.
Two hundred thousand dollars
from the estate of the late Della
Noble of Pontiac was used to aug-
ment the loan fund. The -bequest
brings the total loan funds now
available to2students to approxi-
mately $250,000, Vice-'resident
for Student Affairs James A.
Lewis estimated.
Aid Next Semester
Federal aid should be available
by the beginning of next semes-
ter, Vice-President - for Business
and Finance Wilbur K. PierpontS
told the Regents.
The University will be seeking
the maximum allowed any cob-
lege unde' the new federal aid to
educatio nlaw, Lewis said. The
funds will be distributed on a
percentage basis, with each col-
lege getting a share of the total
funds pr'oportional to its percent-
age of the total number of stu-
dents in the country.
The University stands secondj
among American colleges in loan
funds available to students. Only
Harvard University, with $2,600,-
000, has more.
Demand Rising
Despite this, University loan
funds are being used almost as
fast as they can be made avail-
able, Pierpont noted, In thelast
two years, the Regents have add-
ed more than $500,000 to loan
funds, to meet the rising demand.
Prior to this, loan funds were
more than adequate to meet re-
Regent Eugene B. Power ex-
pressed the hope that a long-term
loan plan could be established,
with repayment beginning three
to five years after graduation.

Ikse Accused-
Of Deception
By Faubus
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. W) -Gov.
Orval E. Faubus accused President
Eisenhower yesterday of joining a
"campaign of deception and propa-
ganda" in the special election in
Little Rock today on the question
of integrating the city's schools.
He said federal officials are try-
ing to deceive the people into be-
lieving they must vote for Integra-
tion in order to reopen the public
. Feelings Run High
The city is electric with race
feeling and excitement over the
Nvote on allowing Negroes to enroll
in all-white schools.
Gov. Faubus, citing actions of
the groups and individuals in the
city who have been urging people
to vote for integration as the only
means of opening the schools, said:
"These facts and circumstances
are, of course, the reason for the
campaign of deception and propa-
ganda that is being waged by the
people of Little Rock.
Cites Reason
"It Is the reason for the issuance
of a statement by Attorney Gen.
William Rogers, and for the issu-
ance of an additional statement by
President Eisenhower."
"These integrationists know full
well their only hope of winning
this election is to deceive enough
of you."
Gov. Faubus said earlier today
that 'his speech would be a "dis-
cussion of the issues" and that he
would not try to persuade people
how to vote.
Faubus Assures Voters
He assured the voters, as he did
in a speech last week, that he has
a sound, workable plan for putting
the public schools under private
operation without allowing Negroes
to enroll.
"I do not get into a situation
without knowing what I am do-
ing," he said. "If what these inte-
grationists say is true, I would
tell you so."
Fear Satellite
Test Failure
The United States fired a "weather
eye" satellite toward space today,
but the chances of a successful
orbit appeared to be slim.
The 72-foot rocket blazed aloft
at 10:38 a.m., EST., but three
hours later there was only a
blanket of silence.
The chances that the U.S. would
successfully blast its fifth satellite
into orbit looked good when it was
announced minutes after the spec-
tacular launching that the rocket's
three phases had performed flaw-

Describes Location
The Dearborn Community Col-
lege will be locating their buildings
on land contiguous to the Uni-
versity's, Stirton explained, and
"it is possible that we will share
facilities to some extent."
The Center is being built on a
210 acre plot donated by the Ford
Foundation along with $6,500,000
for the construction of a branch of
the University.
Donated in December
The land and money were don-
ated in December, 1956 and in
January, 1957 the Regents set up
the administrative organization for
the Center.
Presently four buildings are
under constructions - a general
classroom building, a library, an
engineering building and a faculty
office building.

Charles P. CcCurdy, executive
secretary of the State Universities
Association, advised development1
counselors for the University to1
"utilize every weapon at yourE
command to combat the pressures
for uniformity and conformity in'
our colleges and universities."
Speaking at the Development
Council conference dinner in the
Union last night, McCurdy said
the counsellors must take the of-
fensive side in answering attacks
on state universities.
Cites Challenge
The challenge which develop-
ment counsellors ought to be most
concerned about are those attacks
upon the fundamental philosophy
of the state universities' origin, he
continued. These attacks are
based on the rapidly developing
theory that the state universities
ought not to furnish low-cost
higher education but rather
should charge the student the full
cost of his education.
Details Theory
McCurdy elaborated further on
"higher education enthusiasts"
ramifications of this theory. One
of these alternatives is to let state
and federal government develop
scholarship programs for those.
unable to pay higher fees.
"The only trouble with this is
that no one has yet to figure out
just how much a huge scholarship
program will cost if it is to be an
effective one," he emphasized.
"The next solution proposed by
these high tuition enthusiasts is
the loan fund - buying education
on the installment plan," McCur-
dy said.
