City Council last night put off action on Urban Renewal until
a public hearing in Council Chambers at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
Debate on the project flared up during discussion of adopting a
uniform building code as Councilmen Richard Dennard and Carl
Brauer exchanged heated words on the availability of housing in Ann
Arbor. Brauer objected to the passage of the building code as a
"horrible encroachment on our>

A sensational start by a young
sophomore and the play-making
of his revenge-seeking mate at
guard got Michigan off to an im-
pressive 75-55 upset of Pittsburgh
here last night in the basketball
opener for both schools.
John Tidwell, a lanky yearling
from Herrin, Ill., made his opener,
a happy day with a 22-point spree
and a good job of defensing All-
America Don Hennon - despite
the Panthers' 28 marks on the
scoring column.
Miller Aids Win
Junior guard Terry Miller, re-
membering his own disappointing
opener against Pitt last year,
made the evening an easy affair
for Michigan by feeding Tidwell
on the fast-break with his timely
He further pestered the visitors
by picking off interceptions and
scoring three early baskets which
gave the Wolverines a lead they
never surrendered.
Miller was held to a mere three
points as the Panthers swept over
the Wolverines, 72-62, last Decem-
ber. He scored 11 last night.
Team Win
However, it was a real team vic-
tory for Michigan as veterans
George Lee and M. C. Burton, co-
captaining the squad since the
suspension of Jack Lewis, chipped
in 17 and 15 points, respectively.
The senior pair also teamed
with center Gordie Rogers, Miller
and Tidwell in giving the host

Pitt, 55-38, although both start-
ing teams had identical height
Most of the sparse crowd ofj
4,000 who watched the contest had
their eyes focused on the short -
yet husky - Hennon at the start.
The 5'9" jump-shot artist from
Wampum, Pa., had averaged 26.0
as a junior last year and was the
main reason predicters gave Pitt
high hopes of being the first quin-
tet to ruin a Michigan home
opener since the 1951-52 season.
Miller Scores
After Tidwell's successful free
throw became the first score of
the year, Hennon came back
strong with five straight points.
Then Miller produced his three
consecutive jump shots -- break-
ing Michigan's goalless stretch
which lasted for four minutes
from the game's start.
M' Leads
Michigan led, -5, and was never
threatened by Hennon again.
Wolverine points flowed easily
after that point, too, with Miller
passing for assists to Burton, Tid-
well and Lee as they scored the
next three baskets.
These goals, combined with free
throws by Tidwell and Miller, gave
the Wolverines a 17-10 edge and
prompted Coach Bill Perigo to say
after the game:

As a result of the payment, a
possibility that the schools might
have to borrow funds from banks
has been temporarily avoided, ac-

MSU had authorized borrowing
of nearly one million dollars to
meet its month-end budget, and
had planned to seek $2.5 million
in funds if the checks from Lans-

University officials in Ann Arbor
had feared the University might

Yesterday's negotiations and ex-

The opening article of a treaty

Reopen ITU
Negotiations in the week-long
strike against the Booth news-
paper chain, including the Ann
Arbor News, will be reopened in
Lansing this morning for the first
time since the walk-out.
Striking members of the Inter-
national Typographical Union
Wednesday halted publication of
Booth papers in Grand Rapids,
Bay City, Jackson, Flint, Kalama-
zoo, Muskegon and Saginaw, be-
sides Ann Arbor. Total circulation
of the chain is over 500,000.
ITU spokesmen have asked a,
wage increase of 15 cents an hour
for the first year and 10 cents
for the second year of a two-year
contract. Booth has offered a nine
cent an hour hike for the first
year, and ten for the second.
Base wage now is $3.12 an hour
on six of the Booth papers, with
the Flint Journal and the Grand
Rapids Press paying 10 cents more
for a 372-hour work week.
Ann Arbor News Editor Arthur
Gallagher said the papers and the:
union "are still pretty far apart,"
and that there is "no indication of
anyone giving in on anything."
Gallagher broke down the con-
tract dispute into three points: a'
wage increase, fringe benefits and
modification of the "reset clause."
The reset clause refers to hand-
setting local advertisements that

prepared mats.

De Gaulle Lone French Presidential Candidate

PARIS (P) -- Gen, Charles del
Gaulle was given a clear field last
night to run for the presidency off
the new French Republic and, in
effect, let it be known he is ready
to take the job.
His election, by a newly created
and large electoral college, is a
virtual certainty.
De Gaulle's office disclosed thel

confirming that President Rene
Coty and Premier de Gaulle have
been consulting about the election
and that Coty doesn't want to
stand again.1

De Gaulle vs. Soustelle
De Gaulle is known to want to
offer the Algerian nationalists a
large measure of autonomy and
economic development. Soustelle's
powerful Union for the New Re-
public (UNR), with 188 seats in
the new assembly, is firmly
pledged to an ironclad integration
of Algeria with France.
Aside from Algeria, the political
flavor of the new assembly is ob-
scure. Many old faces in French
politics disappeared in the week-
end voting. Only about 146 former
deputies were returned to their
seats in the 546-seat assembly.
Soustelle himself is a veteran
deputy, but he has only 13 form-
er denuties in his 188-man nartv.
