Daily Sports Editor
Michigan hosts Illinois this aft-
ernoon in what could be the key
game of the 1958 Wolverine grid
When the Illini and Wolverines
take the field at 1:30 p.m. today
the attention of all Michigan fans
will turn to the question: how
high can this year's 'M' team fin-
ish in the Big Ten?
Season Record
The Wolverines now have a sea-
sonh record of two wins, three
losses and one tie. In the Confer-
ence they stand at 1-2-1. Last
year Michigan finished with a
3-3-1 record in the Big Ten and
were right in the middle of the
That is the lowest finish for
the Michigan squad since the
early 1940's, and the lowest ever
under Oosterbaan. By all appear-
ances, however, this year will be
Illinois, and Michigan's subse-
quent opponents - Indiana and
Ohio State, all rank better than
Michigan, by comparative scores,
although the Hoosiers are below
the Wolverines in the league
Big Question
Thus, the question is put on the
line today: is this the worst Mich-
igan team under Oosterbaan's
tutelage, or will they be able tb
salvage the 1958 season record
with the necessary victories to
equal or better last year?
Illinois, with a 2-2 Conference
record, stands Ju~st a step above
Michigan in the ranking. The I-
lini were in the running for the
title, however, until last week's
31-8 lambasting by Purdue.
Now, with both teams in the
second division of the Conference,
today's game appears to be noth-
ing but a fight for pride, and for
a semi-respectable record.

Last night he was caught in a

The United States has repeatedly
asked Soviet authorites in East
Germany to free Milroy. The Rus-
sians have said the appeals must
go to the East German regime,
which is not recognized by the
United States. The United States
reiterated it will ignore the East
Germans in the dealings.
The East Germans announced
during the day they formally noti-
fied the United States consulate
in Berlin, at Milroy's request, that
he is being held. He has been
accused of photographing military
installations but denies it.














Rio,. LeWIS
Plead Guilty;
Giveni Fines
Three University students, An-
thony Rio, '59, varsity fullback,
Jack Lewis, '59BAd., captain of
the basketball team and Durward
Collins, '59,' pleaded guilty in
Municipal Court yesterday on
charges of sellinr football parley
They were fined $100 plus $6.25
Costs by Municipal Judge Francis
J. O'Brien. The three had stood
mute when arraigned on Oct. 29.
John Dobson, attorney for Rio
and Lewis, said in a prepared
statement that the publicity on
the case was "shockingly out of
proportion" to the nature of the
Status Undecided
"I believed it was best to elimi-
nate further occasion for such
publicity by avoiding a trial on
these minor charges," he said.
Indications were that the status
of the athletes would not be de-
cided for at least two weeks,
making it extremely doubtful
whether Rio would play football
again this year. Rio and Lewis
have been suspended from varsity
athletics pending the disposition
of their cases.
University action will come
through normal channels, Vice-
President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis said last night.
The cases will be referred to
Joint Judiciary Council through
the Dean of Men's office, Lewis
Joint Judic will also hear the
cases of three other University
students who pleaded guilty to
gambling charges, Michael Dodg-
son, '59, John Miller, '61E, and Nc ie ,'0
Nick Mitea, '60.
Joint Judie to Hear Cases
The cases will be heard within
the next two weeks, Stephen Si-
mich, Joint Judie chairman, said
There is enough similarity in
the cases to justify hearing them
all before deciding any, Simich
said. Decisions on the cases may
not 'ome for three weeks,
Les Etter, sports publicity direc-
tor, speaking for H. 0. "Fritz"
Crisler, said yesterday that action !

ciding on the eligibility of Rio and "

Herrnstein was called to the plat-
form to light the torch which was
to ignite the bonfire and to say a
few words to the crowd. Hobbling
up the stairs, he received a stand-
ing ovation.
The festivities were concluded
with a few words from Prahst and
the other honorary co-captain,
Bob Ptacek.
At the end of the rally most of
the crowd filtered into the I-M
building where a free dance was
starting. The cry of "To the Hill,"
usually voiced at the end of pep
rallies and the signal for budding
panty raids, was significantly miss-
ing as the rest of the crowd dis-
persed quietly.
Stuart SayS.
'No' Appeal'
Kenneth Stuart, '60, disqualified
as a Student Government Council
candidate, has told Joint Judiciary
Council he will not appeal the case,
according to Joint Judic President
Steve Simich, 159E.
Stuart said yesterday he had
talked to Dean Men Walter B. Ra
and had been advised it ;would be
"generally useless" to appeal.
He reaffirmed his stand, how-
ever, that his violation of election
rules was not serious.
Stuart said he "was not aware"
of election rules until 24 hours
after the violation occurred. SGC
Credentials Committee Chairman
Jo Hardee, '60, pointed out, how-
ever, that elections rules were
stapled on the front of each set
of petitions.
During a rushed three days try-
ng to fill out his petition, Stuart
said, he "negligently" left it over-
night at a sorority house, where
about six" signatures were ob-I

Jerry Manning, '60, said at
Stockwell he felt "unity of the
student body" the most important
goal of SGC. Work in all areas
should have this as an objective,
he said.

SGC is now interested such as
the course booklet and improve-

sufficient to occupy their time

trying to regain the confidence of

ADDITION PROPOSED-A $9.2 million second unit to the recently completed Medical Science
Building is being sought from the state legislature. The nine- or ten-story wing will be built in
the style of the present structure to the right of the wing in the rear, and will house the basic
medical sciences and the human genetics department.
PropOosed New Medical Building
To Answer Space, Facilities Need

U.S., Britain

Begun After Recent
UN Assembly Vote

Consolidation of facilities and
badly needed space for teaching
and research are needs which the
proposed second unit of the Medi-
cal Science Building will satisfy.
The building, for which the
University is seeking $9.2 million
will supplement the first unit,
opened in September. The new
unit, to be nine or 10 stories high,
will house the basic science de-
partments of the mpdical school
and the human genetics depart-
These groups will vacate the
present East Medical Building
and the Heredity Clinic located
west of the Medical Center. The
Heredity Clinic will be razed
when the new building is com-,
pleted, Prof. Lauren A. Woods of
the pharmacology department,
chairman of the planning com-
mittee, said.
No Funds Appropriated Yet
"Only very, preliminary plans"
for the new unit have been drawn
up, Prof. Woods explained, be-
cause the state legislature has not
yet appropriated the necessary
funds for detailed drawings. The
approximately 270,000 square feet
planned for the new unit has been
allocated to departments. This.
unit will contain approximately
the same space as the first unit,
he explained.
The new structure will be built.
in a north-south direction west of
the Medical Science Building and

will be connected to the present
unit. It will contain auditoria for
general use as well as the physi-
ology, bacteriology, anatomy and
human genetics departments.
The East Medical Building is
'very inadequate' in terms of
electric power facilities, Prof.
Woods said, and the departments
need additional space.
Medical Class Increased
In 1950 the medical school in-
creased its entering class from
about 140 to 200 students per
year, without an increase in of-
fice, teaching and research space,
he explained. The new unit, which
houses ..the departments formerly
located in the West Medical

Theodore J. Eighinger, Grad.,

ordered to certify the cause of
death, according to Rev. Edward
H. Rednan of the Unitarian
Chiurch in Ann Arbor.,
Results of the autopsy have not
yet been recofded."

Building has "relatively adequate
space" but the rest of the depart-
ments also need new quarters.
The human genetics depart-
ment, "a new development stimu-
lated by the atomic age" studies
the problems of radiation injury
to humans. This department has
never had quarters of its own,
Prof. Woods said, and is currently
scattered in three buildings. The
new unit would provide badly
needed space for this department,
he added.
Provide Television Facilities
"The new building would pro-
vide a television studio ,and other
facilities whicli will then make it
possible to utilize television for
medical teaching," Prof. Wood
said. Both color and black and
white television would be used,
he added.
"More space ajpd better and
larger animal quarters" would be
other benefits of the new 'truc-
ture. Departments would receive
approximately a 30 to 35 per cent
increase in space over their pres-
ent facilities, he explained.
"Consolidation is very much to
be desired," Prof. Woods ex-
plained. The new building would
bring all medical and nursing
classes into the medical center.
State Must Match Funds
Part of the cost of the struc-
ture could be deferred by a gov-
ernment grant, he explained. Ap-
plication to the Public Health
Service for matching funds of
about $575,000is hbeing sought be-
cause part of the new unit will be
devoted to research facilities.
The state must guarantee the
matching funds before the grant
can be given, Prof. Woods ex-I
plained. The medical school has
not yet received formal notifica-
tion on the grant, he added.
The law under which this
money is distributed expires in
1961 and the new unit must reach
the construction stage by that
time to qualify for the grant.

tion was totally destroyed when the addition to the side of the Union
was begun. At that time the only entrance to the Union was through
the front door.
