Denver Exploits Errors

-Daily-Len Lofstrom
PILE-UTP-Denver and Michigan hockey players collide head-on
in front of the Denver net. Michigan was able to put the puck
into the Denver net only. once during the game while Denver
scored four times capitalizing on Michigan errors.

Michigan's hockey team skated
Denver to a standstill last night,
but the opportunist Pioneers,
capitalizing on every Wolverine
error and picking up a few breaks
along the way, waltzed off with a
4-1 victory.
The victory clinched the Wes-
tern Collegiate Hockey League
championship for Denver, but
Michigan still held second place
in the WCHA as Minnesota whip-
ped Michigan Tech's pressing
Huskies, 5-1, last night.
The Wolverines are still faced
with the seemingly impossible
task of beating the Pioneers to-
night to avoid dropping into third
place behind Tech should the
Huskies win tonight against Min-
nesota. Game time here is 8:00
p m. at the Coliseum.
The Wolverines were victimized
at every turn last night.
'M' Dominates Early
After Michigan had dominated
the initial 15 minutes of action,
Denver took acantage of the first
Wolverinemistg b twhen Ken Wil-
liamson and Jerry Duff as caught
Michigan in the middle of a line
change at 16:51.
As the Wolverines jumped on
and off the ice directly in front
of the Michigan bench, Duff as
took Williamson's short lob pass
at the blue line and skated in on
goalie Jim Coyle to score.
Even at that the Wolverines
weren't out of the game as just
49 seconds into the second period
Larry Babcock got what everyone
in the rink but Referee Marty
Pavelich thought was the equal-
izer. The disputed call came on
a Michigan power play.
Light Went On
The light went on behind D's
All-American goalie George Kirk-
wood, but Pavelich ruled no goal.
This seemed to take some of the
steam out of Michigan and the
Pioneers wasted little time in tak-
ing a 2-0 lead.
This time it was another All-
American. Jerry Walker, who
flashed the light at 5:02. Walker

TO Support
Beta Protest
Dartmouth College officials yes-
terday pledged support to the
campus Beta Theta Pi chapter on
its decision to cut off affiliation
with its national fraternity
"I am proud of the initiative
and high principles displayed by
our undergraduae members,"
Dean of the college Thaddeus Bey-
mour said."
The Dartmouth Betas charged
racial discrimination by the na-
tional in connection with pledging
procedures at Williams College
and "hypocrisy" in its dealings
with the Dartmouth unit.
Administration Backs
"The administration is solidly
behind us and has encouraged us
to stick by our decision," Oak Win-
ters, president of the Dartmouth
Betas said.
The severance of ties with na-
tional came because the Betas at
the Hanover, N. H. college felt the
national has held up the initiation
of the Beta pledge class of Wil-
liams for "too long a period" be-
cause one of the pledges is a
Negro student.
The national issued an Inun-
tion preventing the initiation of
the pledges last November. It is
still in effect.
Cites Letter
The Dartmouth group also cited
a letter sent to the Dartmouth
Undergraduate Council claiming
that members of all major racial
and religious groups were Betas.
The letter, sent out by the na-
tional, conflicted with the action
at Williams 'and with statements
by the national's general secretary
that he knew of no Negroes in any
Beta chapter.
Winters also charged that the
national had put undue pressure
on the Beta chapter at Bowdoin
College when it pledged a Negro
student last fall. The boy de-
pledged of his own volition.
"We are making as strong a
protest as possible," Winter said.
"We are going to contact every
chapter and alumni group and ex-
plain our stand."
Plans No Action
Victor Mix, '62E;Beta president
at the University, said he had not
known of the Dartmouth group's
action until yesterday. He re-
iterated his explanation that his
chapter was planning no action
in the situation until a final de-
cision has been made. "What's
been done at Williams is not de-
finite. We are waiting until every-
thing is final and all the informa-
tion has been collected."
Interfraternity Council Presi-
dent Jon Trost, '61, said that such
a protest as those registered by
the Dartmouth Betas and the
Alpha Tau Omegas at Stanford
(who are resisting an order from
the national fraternity to de-
pledge four Jewish students) "af-
fect the entire fraternity move-
Determine Direction
These protest actions help de-
termine the direction in which
fraternities will move. "The effect
on the national is greater than
may appear at first. The ramifi-
cations of one local out of a hun-
dred member chapters is much'
greater than one per cent."
The decision to cut off ties with
the national is an expression of
the local's prerogative to drop out+
of the national structure if it feels
that the ideas and goals of the
national are not compatible witht
its own views, Trost said. .

Extending Nuisance Tax
LANSING (P)-Gov. John B. Swainson indicated yesterday that
he might veto any bills to extend so-called nuisance taxes beyond
June 30 wheni they are scheduled to expire.
Swainson made the comment when asked about a union leader's
statement urging that the $50 million package of taxes on tobacco,
beer, whiskey and other items be retained. They were enacted in
Dec., 1959. The Governor said he feels now that he might veto any
legislation calling for a nuisance "
tax extension. He added, how- INDIFFERENT R

rs Protest Lumumba's Death

General ,indifference marked the Ann Arbor reaction to a 13
man demonstration yesterday protesting the murder of Patrice
Carrying placards that read "Vive Lumumba" and "Belgium,
Save the UN, Quit the Congo" the group walked from the Diag
down Liberty to Main Street and returned to the campus.
They received some comment from about 50 onlookers who
milled quietly on the Diag but got little attention on the streets.
Disapproved Killing
The group made the protest because "it did not approve of
killing," Sela El-Dareer, one of the demonstrators said. "This is a
formal solemn protest. It is not important whether it achieves any-
thing or not. At least the opinion has been voiced. The authorities
should do whatever they see fit."
El-Dareer said the demonstration supported the presence of
United Nations troops in the Congo until "the easing of tension." He
said that the Belgian troops have "no place in the Congo."
The demonstration was not organized by any single group but
was the expression of individuals, El-Dareer, a United Arab Republic
