Ten Championship

Special To The Daily
COLUMBUS - Singing "California Here We
Come," the Michigan Wolverines ran from the
field here yesterday afternoon following their ti-
tle-clinching 10-0 victpry over arch rival Ohio State
before a record crowd of 84,685.
Michigan Head Coach Bump Elliott, who played
on the championship team of 1947, said in the

locker room, "This is my happiest moment in foot.
(Big Ten athletic directors officially selected
the Wolverines to represent the conference in the
Rose Bowl New Year's Day by a unanimous vote,
Commissioner Bill Reed announced last night.
(Reed said Athletic Director Fritz Crisler accept-
ed the invitation after conferring with President
Harlan Hacher.
(The Wolverines' opponent was expected to be

either Southern California or Oregon State, al-
though official announcement from the Pacific
Conference was not expected immediately.)
The victory gave Michigan its first Big Ten title
and trip to the Rose Bowl since the 1950 season
when it downed the Buckeyes, 9-3 in the famous
"Snow Bowl" game. The Wolverines finished the
1964 season with an 8-1 record, 6-1 in the confer-
ence. The Buckeyes are now second in the final
league standings at 5-1, and 7-2 overall.

Sophomore defensive back Rick Volk intercept-
ed two Buckeye passes and knocked down another
to stop three separate Buckeye drives deep in Mich-
igan territory in the fourth period. Bill Yearby
also batted down a fourth down desperation in
the final quarter as the Michigan defense stopped
the Buckeyes' gambling pass attack.
Michigan senior quarterback Bob Timberlake
fired a 17-yard touchdown pass to halfback Jim
Detwiler in the final minute of play of the first
half and booted the conversion point to give the
eventual victors a 7-0 halftime lead.
The touchdown play was set up by a 50-yard
Stan Kemp punt which was bobbled by Buckeye
halfback Bo Rein and recovered by Wolverine John Hender-
son on the OSU 20. Timberlake ran for three and then fired
to Detwiler, who snagged the ball on the two-yard stripe and
dragged two defenders into the end zone. Elliott related after
the, game that this play had not been used all season.
The Wolverines final points came on a 17-yard field goal
by Timberlake in the opening minutes of the final period.
The boot was set up after Volk took a Steve Dreffer
punt and returned the pigskin 27 yards to the Ohio State 24.
Michigan picked up quick yardage with fullback Mel Anthony

FREEMAN FRAZEE, RIGHT, president of Local 13 of the Press-
man's Union, yesterday announced the end of the 131-day
newspaper strike against the Detroit News and the Detroit Free
Press, the longest newspaper shutdown in the nation's history.
Union Votes End to Strike;
Papers To Publish Tuesday
DETROIT (P) - Detroit's 131-day-old newspaper strike - the
longest such shutdown in the nation's history-came to an end yes-
terday when striking pressmen voted overwhelmingly to go back to
Publishers of the afternoon Detroit News and the morning Free
Press said the newspapers would resume publication with next Tues-
day night's Free Press.
Freeman Frazee, president of Pressmen's Union Local 13, an-
nounced that a new 45-month contract was ratified by a 210-14
vote of the membership.

WASHINGTON (P) - Secretary
of State Dean Rusk and Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko
may meet in New York in about
10 days for the first high-level
talks on United States-Soviet re-
lations since new leaders took
power in Moscow last month.
Soviet diplomats here say Gro-
myko presumably will attend
opening sessions of the United
Nations General Assembly on Dec.
1 as he has in past years.
Rusk plans to go to New York

A spokesman for the Labor
Department said chiefs of three
non-operating unions had wir-
ed to Secretary of Labor Wil-
lard Wirtz their acceptance of
his request that they not strike
pending further negotiations.
"They have all replied, say-
ing that they are happy to
comply," the spokesman said.
Earlier Wirtz had asked the
unions to continue talks in an
effort to head off a nationwide
rail walkout.

Nov. 29, primarily to hold talks
with foreign ministers present at
the assembly meetings.
Pay Up or*.. .
A sharp United States-Soviet
clash could result over Russia s
refusal to pay assessments levied

for United Nations peace-keeping
operations. Under United Nations
charter provisions, the Soviet Un-
ion stands to lose its assembly vote
because its debts are more than
two years old.
The United States is insisting
that the charer requirement be
strictly enforced. However, of fi-
cials here hope that a way may be
found to avoid a fight and the
repercussions which could flow
from it.
Apart from the payments dis-
pute, there have been signs in
Moscow and here of some desire
to improve relations and further
ease East-West tensions, perhaps
by concluding some new agreement
in the disarmament field or on
new matters of practical opera-

Within the week the United
States and Russia signed. in Mos-
cow an agreement to cooperate inE

myko told United States Ambas-
sador Foy D. Kohler that the
Soviet Union would do its utmost
to solve existing problems between
the two countries.
Kohler, who reportedly had a
private talk with the Soviet for-
eign minister a few days ago, re-
turned to Washington Friday and
began consultations with State
Department officials on the whole

tail on his impressions of the new
Kremlin leadership and its inten-
tions for the future, both in re-

Businessmen See Russia
Another outward indication of a
Moscow desire to improve relations
and probably move toward in-
creased trade with the United
States was the meeting this week
between Premier Alexei Kosygin
and a group of United States busi-
nessmen visiting the Soviet Union.
Kosygin also indicated the
Soviet government may make a
payment on its long-standing

Ford Recalls
Idled Workers
To All Plants
By The Associated Press
DETROIT - The Ford Motor
Co. rushed through plans yester-
day to return half of its 80,000
strike idled employes back to work
tomorrow. But it expressed doubt
it could get all of its assembly
plants up to the 10,000 per day
passenger car production again
before Nov. 30.
Some maintenance workers and
stock handlers were recalled to
work in manufacturing plants
yesterday and Ford said more
production, workers would report
back to its stamping plant in
Chicago tonight.
Recalls followed the settlement
Friday night of a local-level strike
at a chasis parts plan in Sterling
Township. It was one of the five
major assembly line suppliers
struck by the United Auto Work-
ers Nov. 6 in support of demands
for inclusion in at-the-plant work-
ing agreements.
The local-level pacts supplement
the over-all national contract on
which the company and union
reached agreement Sept. 18.
United Auto Workers Local 228
of Sterling Township plant will
hold a ratification meeting today
over settlement of terms. Until
then, the exact terms of the
settlement were withheld.


"This whole thing is just ab-
solutely unreal," said the pert

with 7,000 other frostbitten fans

The temperature was three de-
grees fahrenheit, though people
out there denied feeling any of
those degrees. "After fifteen min-
utes I lost all feeling in my body.
It was only some booze and my
girlfriend that kept me from
freezing stiff."
Late Landing
The well-heated team plane was
scheduled to arrive at 5:40 p.m.
It set down at 6:19 p.m., but 5,000
screaming fans swarmed onto the
runway. The pilot turned his four-
engine bird around so he wouldn't
run over anybody or catch a fan
in the propellers. Needless to say,
the Wolverine boosters, half-
crazed by the cold, began to run
after the plane like convicts on
a prison break.
Among them was one of the
most devoted of them all, Presi-
dent Harlan Hatcher. Poor Presi-
dent Hatcher was almost trampl-
ed, but he finally managed to
make it back to the refuge of a
heated bus. In the vehicle Presi-
dent Hatcher carried on a jocular
conversation with Executive Vice-
President Marvin Niehuss.
Sporting Score
"They held us to 10 instead of
21 as we planned. But I think
10-0 is a sportsmanlike score,
don't you? I guess they were
guarding against Ward's pitchout
and Timberlake's rollout more
than we expected," said Hatcher
with a grin.
Meanwhile, back at the stam-
pede, the quick-frozen fans could

carrying 12 and three yards
on ,the first two plays. But the
Buckeye defense held on the
10, so Elliott decided to go for
the three-pointer.
Defensive Unit
Much of the credit for the vic-
tory goes to the Michigan defen-
sive unit which played probably
its best game of the season. El-
liott said that "the defense played
a great game and has been gross-
ly underestimated all year."
With Michigan notching its
third shutout of the year, defen-
sive line coach Bob Hollway re-
marked, "Friday night we decided
we were going to shut them out,
and that's just what we did."
Billed as a defensive contest,
this 61st meeting between the two
football powerhouses turned out
to be just that as Ohio State

Wolverines picked up another five
yards through the air, marking its
lowest offensive performance this
Chips Were Down
The Buckeyes outgained the vic-
tors in total offense with 180
yards. When the chips were down,
the Wolverine defense refused to
budge and consistently thwarted
the Ohio State power plays which
have been Coach Woody Hayes'
main weapon against Michigan on
many other occasions.
Hayes said that his defense
"was absolutely fabulous." He
summed up the game by saying
"Each team got the breaks, but
Michigan took advantage of them
and we didn't."
After a scoreless first quarter,
Tom Kiefuss recovered a Timber-
lake fumble on the Michigan 29,
but the Bucks were held for
three plays. Hayes sent Bob Funk
in to attempt a field goal, but
his try was unsuccessful. But
Ohio State downed the ball on
the Michigan one yard line on
the kick, and the Wolverines were
unable to move from there.

Elliott Calls
Win 'Greatest
Thrill Ever'

COLUMBUS-Fully-clad coaches
were thrown in the showers. by
naked football players, players
danced around with yellow roses
in their mouths, and all was in
turmoil in the jubiliant Michigan
lockerroom after yesterday's Big
Ten championship victory.
Head coach Bump Elliott emerg-
ed from the showers and conduct-
ed a complete press conference in
his wet clothing, only taking some
personal effects out of his pock-
ets, jokingly commenting that he
didn't want them to get wet. The
Wolverine head mentor called the
victory "the greatest thrill ever."
Assistant coaches Hank Fonde,
Bob Hollway, Tony Mason, Jocko
Nelson, Don Dufek and Denny
Fitzgerald, all of whom Elliott
praised for their fine work this
season, also went through the
shower ordeal. All of them seemed
to enjoy it though. Nelson relaxed,
much as a student being passed
up to the top of Michigan Stadium
at halftime, and was carried into
the showers with a lit, cigar in his
Roses, Roses ...
Yellow roses were sent to the
team from Mary Markley hall.
They were on a table in the lock-
erroom as the team entered after
the game. Some players danced
around with them while others,
after dressing, waved them to the
crowds outside the lockerroom.
In contrast to the Michigan
lockerroom, the atmosphere on
the Ohio State side was grim.
Buckeye coach Woody Hayes re-
fused to allow his press conference
to be filmed as had been arranged.
Hayes answered questions of re-
porters, then started to leave the
room. When someone asked him
why he had not allowedghis re-
marks to be filmed, he turned and
said, "Because I didn't want to,
that's why."

Democrats Plan To Set Up
State Education Task Force
EAST LANSING (P)-Michigan Democrats will launch a study
aimed at solving "the urgent problems facing the state's educational
A decision to establish a task force in education was made
Saturday at a meeting of the Democratic Policy Committee, headed
for the first time by retiring Rep. Neil Staebler, the defeated
Democratic candidate for governor. Education. Staebler said, is the
number one legislative respon-
sibility, and the state's biggest
financial problem.
The Legislature, he added, "has
to do something drastic" to cope
with the problem. Increased ex-
penditures would be the first
move, he said.
The committee also is likely to
change its role within the party,
Staebler and Democratic State
Chairman Zolton Ferency agreed.
Its past emphasis has been on "a
rather studious role," Staebler
said. It will now take a more
active role "because of the Demo-
cratic Party's new position in the
state, and the crying need for
action," Staebler said.
There also will be greater em-
phasis on participation by legis-
lators, Ferency said. "They are
a valuable source of information
and will have much to contribute,
he added.>
In aprepared statement, the :
two said studies are being made
