COLUMBUS-A capacity crowd is expected to flood Ohio Stadium
this afternoon as Coach Bennie Oosterbaan closes his Michigan career
against Ohio State.
The annual season finale between the Wolverines and Buckeyes
should draw a full house of 83,000 spectators, which will break the OSU
season attendance record for six home games.
Coach's Finale
It will be Oosterbaan's 100th game as head coach, covering a
period of 11 years. He has won 63 games, lost 32 and tied four. Aside

to the lowest point since 1936.
With a record of 2-5-1 overall and
1-4-1 in the Conference, the Wol-
verines rest in eighth place.
About all either team has to
fight for today is its coach's honor.
Seniors Leave
Besides Oosterbaan, it will be
the final game for 14 "M" seniors,
six of which are starters.

Three Cars Collide
In Freak Accident

treated at University Hospital last
night for injuries received in a
three-car crash.
Anthony S. Kasiborski, '60, an
occupant of one of the cars, was
the only student not released after
treatment.hKasiborski was admit-
ted to the hospital for observation.
He suffered head injuries in the
The accident began when Clay
K. Dohoney was driving northwest
on Packard between E. University
and McKinley in the lane nearest
the curb, police said. When he
came on a parked car he stopped
but did not go around it because
of another car coming up the
street, the same direction as he
was going, the police reported.
The second car was driven by
Prof. Alfred C. Raphelson of the
psychology department at the
Flint Branch of the University.
Prof. Raphelson was also driving
in the lane next to the curb. When
he saw the car driven by Dohoney
he also stopped, the police report
Andrew J. Bial, '60, the driver
of the third car came up behind
the two stopped cars at a speed
of about 40 miles per hour. His
car hit the one driven by Prof.
Raphelson from behind, knocking
his car into the car driven by
Dohoney, the police added.
Four occupants besides Kasibor-
ski of the car driven by Bial were
taken to the hospital for treat-
William H. Hepfer, '59E, and
Bial were treated for lacerations
and released. Lawrence K. Howard,
'59E, was taken to the hospital,
treated for a fractured nose and
released. Janet Dayton was treated

Award 19
For Research
Dean Ralph A. Sawyer, of the
Graduate School, announced yes-
terday that 19 University faculty
members have been awarded re-
search fellowships, for the 1959
summer session.
The grants, made by the Ex-
ecutive Board of the Horace H.
Rackham School of Graduate
Studies, will approximate the sal-
ary which the faculty member
would ordinarily receive if he were
teaching full time during the
eight-week Summer Session.
According to Dean Sawyer, the
grants were made to faculty mem-
bers who have a definite research
project which can be completed
or substantially advanced during
the summer.
The program of Summer Ses-
sion fellowships has been car-
ried on for the past 10 years at
the University.

Ann Arbor Transit Co. co-ordi-
nator, John Rae, called on local
merchants to give more support
;o the city's buses yesterday.
Although the company is break-
ingĀ° even since its elimination of
two routes, there is still no money
accumulating to pay for the
equipment depreciation, he said.
Rae proposed that merchants
make more effort to get their cus-
tomers to use buses by various
means of advertising. He suggest-
ed more use of inside advertising
in buses and the possible distribu-
tion of tokens to customers who
show transfer slips.
He emphasized the need for
continued bus service in Ann Ar-
bor because of the losses that
would occur to merchants if serv-
ice were halted. "One survey tak-
en by a planner in Detroit shows
that one out of ten merchants go
out of business when the buses

"Modern nationalism is repeat-
ing most of the mistakes of early
European nationalism," Prof.
Henry Steele Commager said yes-
In a Student Government Coun-
cil-sponsored lecture at Rackham,
Prof. Commager cited a number
of instances which contrasted the
present trend in American nation-
alism with its earlier stages, from
the American Revolution until the
early 20th century.
Some of the factors which he
said contributed to the "benign
rather than malign?' type of na-
tionalism that grew in the United
States during that period were:
the founding fathers were born
into the tradition of the enlight-
enment; the United States has
never had such a close church-
state relationship; it has never
had a military caste associated
with nationalism.
No 'Stateism' Developed
Prof. Commager also mentioned
the lack of any abiding antipathy
toward another nation in our ear-
lier years; the fact that we did
not develop the "stateism," which
is so closely associated with cer-
tain forms of European national-
ism~; the fact that we have never
had a particular educational sys-
tem associated with our national-
ism, all are factors which led to
our distinctive type of nationalism.
The fact that we had no specific
national culture to defend, but
developed our own over the course
of the years, Prof. Commager said
was also significant, because much
of the Asian and African national-
ism of today, as well as many
instances of European nationalism,
is culturally dominated and in-
These factors all held true in
our earlier years, he said, but
today "we are witnessing a large
growth in 'stateism'-the sacri-
ficing of some of our basic values
in favor of a national 'security'."
Sees Idealogical Antipathy
The previous lack of antipathy
toward other nations has given
way in recent years to an ideologi-
cal antipathy-a campaign of fear
and hatred against Communist
Russia and Communist China, he
Another marked trend which
Prof. Commager sees in the pres-
ent American nationalistic atti-
tude is "cultural chauvinism," an
insistence on the superiority of all
facets of American culture, an
attitude which he declared was "in
marked contrast with the cosmo-
politanism of the 19th century."
One of the most important fac-
tors, Prof. Commager said, is the
policy of nativism, long held by
the United States; "this includes
our discriminatory attitudes to-
ward Negroes, both in the South
and in many communities of the
North, and our discriminatory im-
migration policies toward peoples
of Southern ahd Eastern Europe

Turn over Controls
The Russians have said they will

When this happens the Western
Allies-the United states, Britain

If the Western Allies waver and

West Germans believe the Allies
wouldi doom West Berlin and
threaten the existence of the At-

Bonn applies the same reason-
