Eastern, Western and Central Michigan Universities and North-

given them by the Legislature.
The State Board of Education, meeting in an almost unprece-

the teacher-training high school at NMC and to raise pupil tuition
at the EMU experimental school.

CHAMPAIGN - Unaffected by

Fritz Fisher pitched Michigan to
the Big Ten baseball title and with
it a trip to the NCAA district play-

Illinois' Ron Johnson held the
Wolverines to four hits in pitch-
ing the Illini to a 4-1 victory in
the seven inning nightcap, but it
didn't matter.
Clinch First
The first game victory had lifted
the Wolverines' Big Ten record to
10- and made it mathematically
impossible for second place Min-
nesota to collar them even if they
swept their doubleheader.
Bill Freehan continued his in-
believable hitting in both Y Imes.
After gathering four hits in five
tries at Purdue Friday Freehan
came back yesterday with four

But in the sixth the Wolverines
broke the game wide open. Free-
han reached first on an error.
Merullo Doubles
John Halstead flied to center
and Jim Steckley topped to second
base, but Joe Merullo, hitless in
his last seven at-bats, rammed a
double off the right-centerfield
fence to score Freehan.
Ed Hood drove in the second
run of the inning when he liaed a
curve ball to left field bringing
in Merullo.
That was all Fisher needed. Us-

Special To The Daily
IOWA CITY-Michigan's fired-
up trackmen made it a clean
sweep of the Conference Cham-
pionships here yesterday by scor-
ing 55 1/5 points in the Big Ten
outdoor meet, leaving their rivals
to fight over the table scraps.
This victory was even more sa-
tisfying to Coach Don Canham
than the indoor title because of
the outstanding performances
turned by four members of the
Tom Robinson sprinted to double
wins and tied the Varsity record
for the 100-yd. dash. Ergas Leps,
middle-distance man, also took
double wins and in his familiar

finishing kick repeated his mile
championship time.
Hurdlers Bennie McRae and
Dick Cephas turned in single wins
in good style. Cephas flashed over
the 220-yd. lows around a turn

McRae hurdled to win the 120-yd
Michigan's 55 1/5 point total
was well below Illinois' record 74
points and the Wolverines' win-
ning indoor score of 69 two months
ago. Indiana was second with 36
points, Illinois 27 1/5, Iowa 24%/,
Northwestern 24 1/5, Michigan
state 16, Minnesota 15, Ohio State
141/2, Purdue 13 1/5, and Wiscon-
sin 5 1/5.
Robinson got revenge against
Indiana's Eddie Miles, who beat
him in the indoor 60-yd. dash, by
coming through to win the 100 in
:09.5, tying the Varsity record
he holds jointly with Sam Stoller.
He also won the 220 in 21.1.
"He let up coming down the
home stretch," pointed out Can-
ham, "because he thought he

would have to run in the mile re-
lay. That's the best Robinson's
ever been. Boy, was he sharp! If
he had run all out, he'd have had
himself a 220 record, too.

Big Ten sprint titles for Robinson,
who lost his only Conference race
to Miles, and missed the outdoor
meet as a sophomore because of

Rusk Assesses Measures

WASHINGTON (P)---Secretary of State Dean Rusk arrived back
in Washington last night from the Geneva conference on Laos with
the observation that "a lot of hard work is ahead" before any definite
results can be obtained.
He said that there was still three main points to be ironed out:
Effective Cease-Fire
Clarification of ways-to obtain an effective cease-fire control;
Reaching of an understanding on the meaning of neutrality (There

neutrality among the countries in-

GOP Blamed
BY Swcainson
LANSING () - Gov. John B.
Swainson declared yesterday that
the Republican-controlled Legis-
lature either chose to do nothing
or to do too little in preparing the
state's'1961-62 budget.
Swainson said Republican legis-
lators wrought havoc "with knowl-
edge aforethought" in the fields of
higher education, mental health,
welfare and civil service employ-
"They cannot escape the blame,
and they cannot shift it," he as-
The governor made his remarks
at an all-day Democratic party
leadership conference here attend-
ed by about 100 persons.
Swainson said he had made
every effort to cooperate with the
GOP lawmakers during the ses-
sion, which formally adjourns
June 9.
The governor said that because
of what he termed unwarranted
budget slashing and refusal to ac-
cept available federal aid, hun-
dreds of state employes face lay-
offs, welfare boards are losing
money daily, mentally ill children
may be barred from state hos-
pitals and thousands of students
may have to abandon plans to at-
tend college.

Cuba Trades
With Council
For Hostages
MIAMI (P)-The Cuban Revo-
lutionary Council yesterday a-
cepted Fidel Castro's offer to trade
prisoners for bulldozers.
Dr. Jose Miro Cardona, presi-
dent of the council in exile, an-
nounced from his sick bed that
the council would collect contri-
butions from throughout the
Americas to buy 500 bulldozers and
trade them for prisoners now held
in Cuba.
Contravene Convention
"Despite the fact that the pro-
cedures employed by Castro con-'
travene international convention
regarding prisoners of war, for
reasons of human solidarity we
agreed to pay the exacted price,"
Miro Cardona said In a statement.
He added that the council will
also ask that civilian prisoners in
Cuba be freed.
Miro Cardona recommended that
the International Red Cross acti-
vate the negotiations "as is usual
in such cases."
Commission Arrives
'The 10-man prisoner commis-
sion, which arrived by plane from
Cuba yesterday morning, were un-
der orders from the revolutionary
council not to talk to newsmen.
Miro Cardona said the prisoners
are free to go wherever they wish
as long as they return to Cuba
within the time limit-said by
Havana radio to be seven days.
Given Asylum
The United States Immigration
Service said the prisoners had
been given asylumby a spokesman
for the group assured newsmen
"we are going to return to Cuba."
Immigration officials said the
prisoners are free to proceed to
Washington if they wish, but Miro
Cardona said "there is no need for
them to go to Washington since
the revolutionary council will take
care of matters."
