First Match in Nine Years To Show
Boilermakers' Fullbacks, Passing
Associate Sports Editor
Homecoming finds Michigan at the crossroads.
The Wolverines' future in the Big Ten race will be on the line as
the rugged Purdue Boilermakers provide the opposition at 1:30 today
at the Michigan Stadium.
This will be the first time in nine years the two teams have met.
Purdue will open its Big Ten season, after polishing off two re-
spectable opponents and losing a heart-breaker to nationally-ranked
Notre Dame, 22-20.
Hope To Bounce Back
Michigan will be hoping to bounce back from a 28-0 loss last
week to number one-ranled Michigan State. The pollsters still thought

Special To The Daily
DEARBORN - The University's
two-year-old Dearborn Center was
dedicated yesterday at ceremonies
held on the central mall of the
spacious 205-acre campus.
The eight Regents and the two
Regents-Elect participated in the
dedication which took place before
their October meeting.
In the principal address, Presi-
dent Walter C. Langsam of the
University of Cincinnati, which
has over 50 years experience in
the field of cooperative education,
lauded the center's co-op program.
"The simultaneous presence on
the campus of the traditional pro-
gram in the liberal arts and the
co-op programs in engineering and
business administration makes
possible the tempering of each by
the other and the provision of a
rounded course for all students,"
Langsam pointed out.
The co-op plan provides for
participants to alternate their
class work with on-the-job train-
ing by trimesters.
Langsam explained that this
system "makes higher education
both possible for and attractive to
many able young people who would
not otherwise go to college.
"The chance to earn while learn-
ing and the practical aspects of
the program have a special appeal
to young men and women who
have great academic talent, but
whose families have had no college

However, officials note that the
center is in fact serving nearly
twice this number since many
students are absent from the cam-
pus this term working on indus-
trial and business assignments
with major firms.
In addition, the center provides
graduate training for the 850 per-
sons who attend evening classes.
The $10 million campus pro-
vides more than adequate facili-
ties for this relatively small stu-
dent body-"We planned for the
future," Stirton explained.
Officials figure the campus,
without expansion of the plant,
could have an enrollment of some
2,700 -- one-third full time, and
one-third off-campus at any spe-
cific time on work assignments.
This would divide the student
body equally among the three de-
partments-the literary college
section, the business administra-
tion section and the engineering

Torches, Bonfire, Light Beat Purdue' Pep Rally
A torch-light parade began last night's pep rally and a huge
:.. -"bonfire ended it. Throughout the spirit was "Michigan, beat Purdue?"
. -: The pep rally crowd yelled loud enough for Coach Chalmers
"Bump" Elliott and team until the echoes from the Intramural Bldg.
were almost as loud as the cheers themselves.
Chief highlight of the evening was, however, the "Yell-Like-Hell"
contest. Eleven housing units competed, yelling for Michigan with
their original cheers. Winners of the event will be announced at to-
morrow night's dance.
Sounds Theme
Rev. Fred E. Luchs of the First Congregational Church, main
speaker of the evening, sounded the theme of the weekend when he
declared, "we'll be going along on the highway at 100 miles an hour
while they'll be behind, honking to get ahead."
Traditional show stoppers, the Friars were called back three
times for their humorous renditions of "Peanuts," "Blue Moon," and
"The Tom Cat."
