Galbraith Considers
Nominees' Variations
Sees Kennedy's Position as Active,
Nixon's Stand as Inactive, Listless'
Speaking on the difference between Sen. John F. Kennedy and
Vice-President Richard M. Nixon, John K. Galbraith, Harvard econo-
mist and advisor to Kennedy, dwelt largely on the "shortcomings"
of the Eisenhower Administration, to which Nixon is "irrevocably
Galbraith spoke to a near-capacity crowd in the Ann Arbor High
School Auditorium last night.
Admirable Exponents
He said that each of the candidates was "an admirable ex-
ponent of the position he represents." He characterized Kennedy as

At Sold-Out East Lansing Stadiui
Associate Sports Editor
EAST LANSING--All roads lead to East Lansing and ti
Spartan stadium today, as the traditional Michigan-Mich
gan State rivalry is renewed for the 53rd time.
What makes this one of the most unusual meetings of th
two teams is that of all the people jamming the highway
leading to the Spartan campus-none have any idea of wha
will happen.
Michigan-fresh from last Saturday's 21-0 win over Or
gon-will take the field with a

on Political
Prof. John K. Galbraith of
Harvard University and economics
advisor to Sen. John F. Kennedy
commented yesterday on the
Democratic candidate and the
campaign in general.
"As far as Michigan is con-
cerned," he said, "I think that
as the people become better
acquainted with Kennedy, they
become increasingly ardent sup-
"I am glad to be a friend and
supporter of the senator. I do a
certain amount of speaking, and
I am a fairly adequate writer. I
must confess, however, that the
role of economic advisor is largely
attributed to me by the press."
Galbraith said that he saw a
sort of return to the braintrust of
the New Deal. "There will be some
scholarly advice," he said. "Every
president seems to have 10 times
the advice that he needs."
He did add that there had "been
some lack of brains in the Eisen-
hower Administration."
Refutes Summerfield
Galbraith went on to refute
Postmaster General Arthur Sum-
merfield's recent claim that he
(Galbraith) is opposed to automo-
"If he spent less time pouring
over those dirty books and a little
more time studying clean books, he
would know what I said in my
Galbraith then pointed out that
he actually said that there must
be a balance between the cars in
relation to the roads and high-
ways available to accommodate
Economic Need
Commenting on the industrial
role of the South, Galbraith
stressed that the nation needs a
"balanced economy."
"In America, all problems are
relatively easy to deal with if our
economy has a good rate of
growth," he said. "They are hard
to deal with if there is a poor
rate of growth. This is the prob-
lem now," he concluded, account-
ing for the South's "lag in indus-
In this regard, he said that
Nixon's stand during the TV de-
bate was "largely an effort to cover
up a poor record. Nixon didn't look
comfortable mildly agreeing with
all those things he has formerly
opposed. He'll look much better
after the election, when he can go
back to opposing them."
Castro Blasts
On Television
HAVANA (M-No matter which
candidate wins the United States
presidential election, Prime Min-
ister Fidel Castro made it a cer-
tainty yesterday that he'll have no
friend in the White House.
Castro used a television panel
show as his stump for assailing
Vice-President Richard M. Nixon
and Sen. John F. Kennedy. He
called them "cowardly hypo-

"representing energy, activity, and
initiative, and as a man who "is
not committed to a liberal policy
by promise, but by record."
Nixon, he said, is part of an ad-
ministration, which he considers
"listless, lethargic, and inactive.
It's been a comfortable adminis-
tration. No one will deny that."
Galbraith went on to discuss the
"negative" economic policies of
f the Eisenhower Administration.
"There seems to be a limited
logic here," he said. "When the
economy needs stimulation, or
when an election seems to be ap-
proaching, we go through a process
of restraint of inflation and stab-
ilization of economy. Sometimes
this goes too far and brings on a
t recession."
Keep Balance
Galbraith said that the solution
is to keep a balance between our
public services and our private ex-
penditures. He pointed out that a

Disclose Bid
To Buy Off
Oregon Star
Oregon halfback Mickey Bruce
was offered a bribe on the day
before last Saturday's football
game with Michigan, Detective
Lt. Carl Robinson of the State
Police rackets squad disclosed
The attempt, involving David
Budin, a 27 year old Brooklyn,
N. Y., schoolteacher, and two un-
identified gamblers, was unsuc-
cessful because Bruce informed
Coach Len Casanova of the in-
Budin Arrested
Budin was arrested by racket
squad detectives, but he was
charged only with registering at
a motel under a false name. The
two gamblers, using the false
names of Frank Grosscup and B.
Petroni of Chicago, disappeared
when apparently tipped that the
police were on the case.
The schoolteacher pleaded guilty
to the charge before Justice of the
Peace John Mokersky and paid a
$100 fine and $10 costs.
The bribery charge might have
been pressed further if Oregon's
Athletic Director Leo Harris had
been willing that Bruce testify.
He said he would refer the inci-
dent to the NCAA for further
Suspect Approach
Police suspect that Bruce was
approached by Budin and the
two men at the Dearborn Inn,
where the team was staying, and
told he could earn $5,000 if he
"let a pass receiver in behind him"
and induced quarterback Dave
Grosz to "call the wrong plays,"
police said.
However, Bruce helped the
Oregon attack with a third-quarter
pass interception that provided
the deepest penetration into Wol-
verine territory.

West Germans Use 'Squeeze'

BONN (M)-The West began- a
reverse squeeze on the Communists
in the Berlin dispute yesterday by
ordering a halt in its trade with
East Germany, which could bring
sharp repercussions.
The action threatened to wipe
out 11 per cent of the total trade
of the Soviet Union's East Ger-
man satellite, but authorities here
said the act was essentially poli-
More Expected
More countermeasures to Com-
munist pressure on Berlin were
reported in the works, but West
German officials said they would
remain mum about what was
planned in order to keep the So-
viet Union and East Germany
"They have been trying to chop
away at our rights in what has
come to be called the salami
method," one high-ranking West-
ern official said. "Now we are go-
ing to do some salami slicing."
Felix Von Eckhardt, press
spokesman for Chancellor Kon-
rad Adenauer, announced the ac-
tion and called it a reprisal
against Communist restrictions on
travel in Berlin and the East's
renunciation of the four-power
occupation status of Berlin.
Cancel Agreement
It involved notification to East
Germany that the Adenauer gov-
ernment was exercising its option
to cancel the trade agreement
with East Germany effective Jan.
1, 1961.
The move was potentially explo-
sive. When rumors of a possible
Bonn trade embargo began cir-
culating a few weeks ago, East
German officials replied with a
veiled threat to slap a blockade
on Berlin.
"We have the longer lever,"
Heinrich Rau, East German Dep-
uty Premier, said. Berlin lies 110

miles inside Communist territory of conferences that preceded yes-
and West Berlin is dependent on terday's action, said he expected

Chaos Spreading in Laos;
Army Head, Premier Feud
VIETIAINE, Laos (A-A quarrel that could split the Laotian
government wide open erupted yesterday between neutralist Premier
Prince Souvanna Phouma and Capt. Kong Le, the August coup leader
who put him in power.
The splintering made the situation begin to resemble the chaos
in the Congo.
Kong Le refused to recognize cease-fire orders issued yesterday
and said his troops will pursue their campaign against the rightist
forces of rebel Gen. Phoumi Nosavan despite peace talks under way
at Luang Prabang, the royal capital.
The captain displayed no such militancy toward the Communist
led Pathet Lao, a rival group in Laos' three-cornered civil war, but

State Weaker
Michigan State-not so fresh
from last Saturday's dreary 7-7
draw with Pittsburgh-will take
the field with a team, that is
possibly not as strong as early
observers had anticipated. -
Perhaps the best explanation
for the situation is that Michigan
State was ranked high in the
nation before the season began,
while the Wolverines were unmen-
tioned. In fact the Spartanslnov-
ed up three places from ninth to
sixth in the nation in the first
weekly poll on the strength of a
good scrimmage!2
And so, while reams of copy
will be written when today's con-
test is history, little can be said
to compare the two teams before
kickoff time.
Bare statistics don't help much.
Michigan was seventh in the Big
Ten last year - Michigan State
was second. Michigan has a rela-
tively new backfield and experi-
ence in the line this year-Michi-
gan State has experience in the
backfield (including backs that
scored 22 of the 34 humiliating
points poured onto Michigan in
1959) and its choice between ex-
perience and size on the line.
If MSU plays veterans in the
line, they give away a big possible
weight advantage. If their big
boys start-they will be unseason-
ed sophs.
All Out Effort
Reports from the well-guarded
MSU practice field this week in-
dicate that coach Duffy Dough-
erty will be pulling out all stops
for the big game of the year.
The 76,000-plus football fans,
alumni, student and others, who
will jam the MSU stadium can
expect to see a few new rabbits
pulled out of Dougherty's multi-
ple-offense hat.
But Michigan's Bump Elliott
hasn't spent the past week rest-
ing, either. Coach Elliott has
driven his charges through the
roughest week of drills since fall
practice started.
After a short workout and mo-
vies Monday, the Wolverines have
been through a grueling week of
scrimmaging. And on the encour-
aging side of the ledger, the team
is at the best physical level of the
young campaign.

four and one-half per cent growth
rate would yield a gross national
product of $995 billion by 1970.
This is the growth that Kennedy
proposes, he said.
On the other hand, the present
rate of about two and one-half
per cent, will only yield $715 bil-

which "is not insignificant," he
Galbraith said that the choice
in 1960 was not between liberals
and conservatives. "It is between
the contented and the concerned.
The man who resists change is in-
variably the victim of his own in-
action. The principles and the
people to which Nixon is commit-
ted are not energetic or active."
Doubts Claim
Galbraith said he doubted the
Republican claim of Nixon's ex-
perience in foreign affairs.
"In fact I cannot see where
they made any headway. A party
that is lacking in concern and
compassion at home will feel the
same way abroad."
There have been no great ad-
vances in foreign policy, just a
superficial show of busy-ness,
Galbraith said. He made reference
to the Dulles military pacts, and
the "new-found thing called trav-
el" which took "a smiling Eisen-
hower" to trouble spots in the
world to alleviate fears in "carou-
sel diplomacy."

GE Strike
Set Tonight
NEW YORK (A/P-A nationwide
strike against the General Elec-
tric Co. was called by the Inter-
national Union of Electrical
Workers yesterday to start today
at midnight.
A panel of federal mediators
nevertheless kept trying to head
off the walkout. They scheduled
yet another meeting between un-

tives for today.
The 80-man conference board
of the union voted the strike at

With Editor
Associate City Editor
Last night, after a week of
charges and counter-charges by
the president and a student news-
paper editor at City College ol
New York, all seemed quiet.
President Buell G. Gallagher
claimed last week that the editor-
ial board of the 'Observation Post,'
one of the six CCNY student news-
papers was infiltrated by Com-
munist sympathing.
In reply, the Thursday 'Obeer-
vation Post' called for an immedi-
ate meeting of the general facul-
ty to discuss what the paper call-
ed "slanderous accusations" by
No Special Meeting
Gallagher, last night, said that
he would not dignify the charges
against him by calling a special
meeting before the regularly
scheduled one in November. He
added he had no intention of re-
tracting his statement that the
paper was following a "Marxist
The president said there had
been no response yet from the
faculty, and in fact, claimed that
the charges by the paper had
hardly caused a raising of the eye-
brows, because the line of this
paper was so well-known. Peter
Steinberg, managing editor of the
'Observation Post,' said that they
had not expected any response
from the faculty as the story had
been aimed at a general meeting
and not at individual members.
Lone Supporter
Of the other papers only one,
the 'Campus' has come out ac-
tively for the 'Observation Post.'
The other four have supported
neither the president or the 'Ob-
servation Post.'
Gallagher said -his charges
were primarily based on two
events: The last editorial of the
spring semester and the "slant-
ed" news coverage his first fall
press conference received from the
The editorial last spring called
for a renewal of the class struggle
between the students and the ad-
ministration. Steinberger said that
the editorial was prompted by the
fact that both Gallagher and a
former president of the CCNY
student government had com-
mented there was no longer class
conflict at the college. Gallagher
added that, inview of the pro-
test against the civil defense
drills and discrimination, there
was still conflict.
Urges Activity
At his press conference, Galla-
gher said he called for students
to be active in political and so-
cial affairs. He added that he
had supported the sit-in demon-
strations in New York City, but
only after the elleged domination
by the Communists had been elim-
ilnated. However, Gallagher claim-
ed that the civil defense protests
happened so quickly that there
was no chance for mature leader-
ship to be formed, and as a re-
sult, many Communists took over

age by the six papers varied great-'

MSU Fraternity Reclaims 'Missing' Trophy

Daily Sports Editor
Return of a "missing" trophy highlighted an impromptu pep
rally yesterday afternoon in advance of today's traditional battle
between Michigan and Michigan State at East Lansing.
The trophy in question was a mammoth (formerly green and
white) bell that was mysteriously removed from the Michigan State
campus last spring.
Culprits were the pledge class from the Michigan State chapter
of Delta Upsilon fraternity, who last April removed the bell from
its moorings on the Delta Upsilon lawn, loaded it onto a trailer,
drove to Ann Arbor, and dumped it on the lawn of the local chapter
The prank, however, took a surprising twist the next morning
when neither the Michigan State or Michigan chapters could locate
the Spartan trophy,
There was campus-wide concern at East Lansing for the bell

For six consecutive years, the Michigan State chapter had
faithfully lugged the bell to every home football game. And every
time the Spartans registered a touchdown, fans all over the stadium
could here the gongs reverberating through the autumn air.
Yesterday, the bell reappeared on the Michigan campus wearing
