The Little Brown Jug for the third straight year went back to
Minneapolis yesterday in a comedy of errors the likes of which haven'tI
been seen at Michigan Stadium since Henry Ford was thinking.Model
Six times Michigan gave the ball away. Six times Minnesota
gave it back, as both teams played "I don't want it.";
Fumbled Five Times
Michigan fumbled five times and lost the ball on three occasions.
The Gophers dropped it seven times and lost it four, but made up
for the difference in mistakes by intercepting three Wolverine aerials
while only losing two of their own. At one point in the fourth quar-
ter the ball changed hands three times in four plays.
The final score, by the way, was Minnesota 17, Michigan 0. It
was the third straight time the Wolverines were whitewashed in the
Big Ten and you have to look' all the way back to 1935 to find that
again. How long it has been since Michigan failed to get inside the
12-yd. line in three games is anybody's guess.
New Look
The Wolverines came out of the dressing room yesterday with a
new look in their eyes and a new offense in their heads. Bob Timber--

lake, who had been Michigan's quarterback in the losses to Michigan
State and Purdue, found himself at halfback along side Dave Raimey.
Harvey Chapman wound up at flanker back with Frosty Evashevski
calling signals.
But outside of a smart halfback jump pass from Timberlake to
end Jim Conley, which caught Minnesota by surprise, the Wolverines
were as futile as ever.
Juggled Lineup
Minnesota's two tackles, Bobby Bell and Carl Eller, spent more
time in Michigan's backfield than any of the Michigan backs as Coach
Bump Elliott repeatedly juggled his lineup in an attempt to find a
winning combination. Bell will probably draw considerable support
for "Back of the Week" honors.
Surprisingly, Michigan played Minnesota to a standstill in the
first quarter, but early in the second it was one of Michigan's many
mistakes that opened the door.
Futile Punt
Standing back to punt on his own 30, Joe O'Donnell couldn't
reach the pass from center. The ball skidded to the Wolverine 18
where Minnesota took over.
Seven plays and two more "breaks" later, Colin Versick, a kick-
ing recruit from Minnesota's I-M fields, zeroed in from the Michigan

STORY OF A GAME-A ball hanging in suspension is one of the
main points of yesterday's Michigan-Minnesota Homecoming
game. Both teams lost the ball seven times. Michigan lost three
fumbles while the Gophers lost four.

Special To The Daily
WASHINGTON-Two thousandI
people demonstrated in front of
the White House and before the
Soviet Embassy yesterday to both
support and protest President
John F. Kennedy's recent actions
in regard to Cuba.
Those protesting against the
President's blockade measure out-
numbered those who supported the
action by 2-1. The anti-blockade
demonstrators were called by the
Student Peace Union, the Women's
Strike for Peace and the Commit-
tee for a Sane Nuclear Policy.
The demonstration began at 10
a.m. (EST) and grew quickly as
busloads of anti-blockade protes-
tors arrived from Philadelphia,
Baltimore, New York, the Univer-
sity and elsewhere.
Pro-Blockade People
Pro-blockade demonstrators in-
cluded Young Americans for Free-
dom, 40 Cuban refugees, a small
contingent of the American Nazi
Party and other pro-Kennedy
Shortly after 10 a.m., there were
instances of egg throwing by pro-
blockade demonstrators against
anti-blockade protestors, but these
incidents quickly died out and it
was generally a peaceful demon-
stration by all parties.
The demonstrations ended at
4:30 p.m. and the protestors pro-
ceeded to a rally at a First Con-
gregational Church.
At the rally, alternative solu-
tions to the Cuban crisis were dis-

said, that the installation of mis-

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
third in a series of articles in
which faculty members comment
on various aspects of Michigan's
tax structure and fiscal reform.)
The Business Activities Tax
(BAT) is a hindrance to eco-
nomic growth in Michigan,
Prof. Daniel R. Fusfeld of the
economics department says.
The BAT, initiated in 1954
in an attempt to avert a fi-
nancial crisis, is a tax on the
gross revenue of businesses.
Cost of materials may be de-
ducted but labor costs cannot.
This blanket taxation, which
does not take profit or loss into
account, lends stability to the
state's fiscal structure but dis-
courages research and service
firms from locat--:g and ex-
panding in Michigan since their
large labor costs forces them
to pay higher taxes, Prof. Fus-
feld says.
'Added Value'
The BAT is what taxation
experts call an "value added"
tax, one that derives revenue
from the difference between
the value of the raw materials
and the finished product, he
Because Michigan's economy
suffers sharper ups and downs
in prosperity and recessions
than the economy as a whole,
one can make an argument

that some tax other than an
income tax would be desirable
from the State government's
viewpoint, Prof. Fusfeld says.
However, such a tax dis-
courages economic growth.
Small, Raw Materials
"A firm in service industries
may well have a relatively
small cost of raw materials as

Since service industries ar

Prof. Fusfeld says.
Calling the BAT a "stopga
measure," Prof. Fusfeld point
out that it was conceived an
initiated in an atmosphere o
fiscal crisis without proper con
sideration of its possible conse
quences to economic growth o
its proper place in an overa
taxation structure.
"This is the trouble wit
most of Michigan's taxes," Prof
Fusfeld says.

dewbart Unbuttons Mind
To Reveal Normal Past
Only a few years ago Bob Newhart was, in his own words, "a nice,
normal conformist with a college degree and a settled profession."
Sitting backstage after his performance last night, comedian
Newhart reminisced about his abrupt shift from an accounting job in
Chicago to the uncertain world of show business. He began his new
career by writing radio routines which he found he could not sell to
anybody else. Finally he began doing them himself.
A Hollywood record company discovered him and put his routines
irk an album labelled "The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart." "It!

Eva LeGallienne, a great and
venerated lady of the American
theatre, made her debut in 1915
in London and came to America
with the dream of spreading rep-
ertory theatre in the United States.
Miss LeGallienne, herself twice
founder of repertory theatres,
fondly recalled the beginning of
the Civic Repertory Theatre in
1926, when a young reporter from
Columbia University came to the
theatre to interview her. In amaze-
ment, he asked, "Why are you
here? Weren't you a Broadway
star. How did you come to this?"

As a child she sat in the balcony

the great plays she saw given by
the peoples' repertory theatres
which were subsidized.
Biggest Complaint
Her most resounding complaint
against the present American the-
atre is that "we do not have great
threatre accessible to the public."
At the Civic Theatre, the audience
was the same people as those who
stood at the back of the house to
