Shape; Inl
Sports Editor
Michigan's Wolverines will pass
up the Thanksgiving holiday to-
morrow, hoping to feast Saturday
on powerful Ohio State in the tra-
ditional season finale.
Normally shaping up as one of
the toughest games on Michigan's
schedule because of the intense
rivalry, the contest figures to be
the most difficult test the Wol-
verines have faced this fall, with
the hard-driving Buckeyes rated
the number two team in the coun-
try and seeking a Big Ten title.
Coach Bump Elliott's squad
s finds itself in the poorest physi-
Y cal shape of the entire season.
Three normal starters will not be
on the field for the kickoff, and
several other key reserves are not
at top efficiency.
Top Shape
OSU Coach Woody Hayes will
have his crew in top condition
for the last game of the year, with
a possible 6-0 conference record
resting on the contest. Minnesota,
tied with the Buckeyes at the top
of the Big Ten heap, will play
host to Wisconsin in the other

game which will determine the
conference title.
The Wolverines have been set-
ting their defenses to stop the
Buckeyes' crunch-crunch, grind
'em out offense, led by human
battering ram, Bob Ferguson. The
217-lb. fullback has picked up 786
yds., more than double any other
OSU back. Ferguson has lost only
two yds. all year, and has carried
the ball over 20 times per game.
A senior, Ferguson was named
All-American last season .and has
scored seven touchdowns this
McRae Doubtful
Michigan's leading ground-
gainer, left halfback Bennie Mc-
Rae will probably be missing Sat-
urday. The 6'1" Newport News,
Va., speedster suffered a severe
shoulder bruise in the first quar-
ter of the Iowa game and is listed
as "very doubtful" by Elliott for
the OSU game.
That's only the beginning of
the Wolverine infirmary list.
Starting center Todd Grant ended
his playing career against the
Hawkeyes with a knee injury
which required surgery. Tackle

John Schopf, who has sat out the
last three games with a separated
shoulder, may see limited action
but is not expected to start.
Defensive halfback Jack Stro-
bel, a junior, is also out for the
season with a knee injury. End
Scott Maentz, who sprained an
ankle in the Iowa game, should be
available but it is not known how
seriously the injury may hamper
his punting. Center John Walker
has a bad ankle, also, but will
probably be ready to assume
Grant's position on offense as well
as on defense.



To bolster the center post, El-
liott has shifted tackle John Hout-
man to that spot. Whether Hout-
man plays there will depend on
Walker's condition, as Frank Ma-
loney will also be available as a
defensive center.
At fullback for the Blue, Bill
Tunnicliff should be set to start,
although still favoring his ankle.
Defensive fullback Ken Tureaud
is still bothered by a pinched nerve
and will be used sparingly against
the Buckeyes.
Though Ohio State will be fav-
ored to defeat the injury-weaken-
ed Wolverines, the Michigan squad
has a host of seniors who remem-
ber the OSU game two years ago;
in which the Buckeyes were pick-
ed as sure winners. With All-
American Bob White and end Jim
Huston, the Bucks were loaded.
But an inspired Michigan team,
using three platoons of players
handed the Ohioans a sound 23-14
Directing the team at quarter-
back will be John Mummey with
Joe Sparma standing by. Bill Mru-
kowski, the team's best runner-
passer has an injured hand and

will be on the shelf for the Mich-
igan game. But Mummey is sec-
ond only to Ferguson in rushing
with 362 yds. while Sparma has
tossed for four touchdowns.
The only blemish on the Ohio
State record is a first-game 7-7
tie with spoiler Texas Christian,
which upset top-ranked Texas only
last week. Since that first game,
the Buckeyes have rolled over five
conference foes and two non-con-
ference opponents. Last week while
Michigan was upsetting Iowa, 23-
14, the Ohioans were downing Ore-
gon, 22-12.
The two opponents have faced
three common opponents this
year and both have won each
time. If Michigan wins, it will
mean a 7-2 season, the best since
The Buckeyes will arrive Pri-
day morning and spend the after-
noon working out at the Stadium.
Kickoff time for the contest will
be 1:30 p.m. Saturday, with ap-
proximately 80,000 fans expected
to attend, despite the Thanksgiv-
ing holiday. The game will be re-
gionally telecast on Channel 7.

LATE IN 1961:
Still Plan Astronaut Shot


By The Associated Press
The United States still plans to
put an astronaut in orbit during
1961, a spokesman for the Na-
tional Aeronautics and Space Ad-
ministration said yesterday.
The spokesman at the Manned-
Spacecraft Center here said "as
the schedule nowstands, NASA
still plans to have a manned or-
bital shot in 1961."

"There's no denying that achiev-
ing this will be difficult," the
spokesman added, "and there's a
strong possibility that the at-
tempt may come in early 1962."
* The spokesman, who declined to
be identified, said timing of the
orbital shot depends on many
favorable factors, including the
successful orbiting of a chimpan-

OSA Committee Considers
Residence: Hall Problems

The Office of Student Affairs Study Committee yesterday spent
its second session on a discussion of the residence halls, Prof. John
Reed of the Law School, committee chairman, said.
The group tried to consider areas where some improvement could
be made immediately, Prof. Reed said, although no definite solution
was reached.

have more freedom in choosing non-University housing and whether

ment is scheduled for next week.
Most predictions have been that
a manned orbital shot would not
be possible before February be-
cause of the failure earlier this
month to put a chimpanzee into
orbit on schedule.
At Cape Canaveral, Air Force
troops last night successfully fired
a Titan missile on a 5,000-mile
test flight. The rocket carried an

This was the first time an all-

USSR Agrees

Balaguer Firms Dominican Control

CIUDAD, Trujillo (P) - Presi-
dent Joaquin Balaguer told the
nation last night his government
has achieved full control with
support of the entire Dominican
military establishment.
Less than a week ago Balaguer's
regime was in danger of a resur-
gence of Trujillo dictatorial rule.
In an obvious reference to re-
ports that some friction had de-

The Council president for No-

Soviet Union, said the 11-nation
council would convene today to
hear the Cuban complaint.
Cuba's request was made by Am-
bassador Mario Garcia-Iiichaus-
tegui in a letter to Zorin asserting
that the United States is trying
to prevent the Dominican people

tary is behind the government and

False Impression
He cautioned Dominicans not to
be swayed by "propaganda tending
to create a false impression" that
danger of a counter coup against
the government has not been
totally eliminated.
Balaguer's assurancesscame amid
persistent reports that some dwin-
dling resistance still existed among
diehard pro-Trujillo factions.
The president spoke after lead-
ers of the two biggest opposition
political groups returned from
Washington to the wildest demon-
stration here in recent memory.
City Turns Out

city of 300,000 seemed to have
turned out for the return of Viriato

movement joined a third opposi-
tion faction, the Revolutionary
Party, in announcing support for
President Balaguer following the
forced exodus of leading members
of the Trujillo dynasty.
The demonstration became so
wild that police were forced to

that began throwing rocks after

U.S. Accepts
New Position
Of Russians
Conference Planned
With Britain, Soviets
Tuesday in Geneva
United States State Department
welcomed yesterday Russia's turn-
about decision to resume negotia-
tions with the United States and
Britain on a permanent, inspected
nuclear weapons test ban.
The negotiations will be re-
opened at Geneva next Tuesday.
But the United States rejected
an implied Soviet demand that
this country should now halt its
own testing of nuclear and enter.

Trying Maneuver
Officials said that Soviet Pre-
mier Nikita Khrushchev having
apparently completed a test series
of 31 or more explosions, was
evidently trying to maneuver
President John F. Kennedy into
a new moratorium and thereby
gain some advantage for Russia in
the nuclear arms race.
United States policy on this
point, previously announced by
Kennedy, was restated emphati-
cally by the State Department
which said:
"The United States will continue
to take such action as it deems
necessary to safeguard its national
security interest until a controlled
test ban agreement is achieved."
Brief Notes
Britain and the United States
had proposed in brief notes to
Moscow Nov 13 that the Geneva
negotiations be resumed. They
were recessed Sept. 9 a few days
after Khrushchev began explod-
ing nuclear test weapons with the
claim that he had to act in the
interest of Soviet security because
of an increasing danger of war-
referring to the Berlin crisis.
Yesterday the Soviet govern-
ment replied to the Western pro-
posal with notes delivered to the
American and British emabssies
in Moscow. The reply expressed
readiness "to make one more at-
tempt (at a nuclear test ban agree-
ment) bearing in mind that the
three powers, participants in these
negotiations, have proclaimed that
their general aim is geneal and
complete disarmament."
The State Department announc-
ed a few hours after receipt of
the Soviet note here that the
American delegation to the Ge-
neva Conference was being in-

East Examines 'Sick South'; Hayden Hits Student Failure

Present Cure for Adament Patient
"The South is a patient most ill; the signs of the sores are in
Montgomery and Tuscaloosa; it is split at the seams and at Little Rock
it absolutely ruptured itself; its present trauma is in McComb, Miss."
The "doctor" is P. D. East, editor of the Petal Paper of Petal, Miss.
and author Of "The Magnolia Jungle." He explained that he believes
in the empty gourd theory in medicine. "Get everything that is wrong,
put in it an empty gourd, seal the gourd and all is well."
Must Admit
However, East said that the patient must admit he is sick before
he can be cured. "The patient insists that he is not sick and that every-
one else is ill."
It appears that the patient has been taking an evil concoction
called "Snake Oil." It is sold by slick peddlers who "keep the patient
under their control through addiction. It lessens the pain but does not
help the patient."
Trace of Stupidity
East said that a lab test revealed "insensitive thinking, self-conceit
and, a trace of stupidity." Although he did not have the method for
breaking the evil habit of Snake Oil, East offered a substitute pre-

Former Editor Contrasts Attitudes
While the Negro student in Mississippi has been struggling to gain
his own and his people's civil rights, Northern students have failed to
meet their responsibility, Thomas Hayden, '61, and Alan Haber, '60,
told a meeting of the Political Issues Club last night.
"The contrast is stark. The American student does not seem to
realize the gulf between what is talked about and what is done,"
Hayden, a former Daily editor, declared.
The Negro student is at the "cutting edge" of the civil rights
movement, he added. White students do not sense its urgency.
Killed, Beaten
Hayden cited numerous instances where Negroes and Negro
students have been killed, beaten, or taken great risks in attempts to
gain civil rights. He noted cases of Negroes attempting to register being
beaten on city hall steps of various Mississippi towns.
A difference in background between the Northern student who
leads a safe life and the Southern integrationist, a deadening horror
of a strife torn world on the individual consciousness, a lack of under-
standing of the real meaning of discrimination, and a.lack of feeling
for another person's suffering were cited by Hayden as the main causes
of this student failure.
