RECORD BREAKER-John Tidwell was carried from the court last night after breaking three.
ichigan scoring records and sparking the Wolverines' 72-65 win over Michigan State. Scoring 41
points, he broke the old record of 39 points in the closing moments of the game.

Tidwell Sets,
New Marks
In JIM set
Daily Sports Editor
Michigan's John Tidwell cracked
open everything in sight here last
night to lead the Wolverines to1
their first Big Ten triumph this
year-a stunning 72-65 upset over
Michigan State.
The lanky junior, who hadn't
lived up to his 1959 reputation:
most of this year, scored 41 points
to smash:
1) Michigan all-time individual
high of 39 which he set last season
against lowly Wisconsin;
2) The Yost Fieldhouse (which
has staged games for almost four
decades) all-time mark of. 39, set
by Indiana All-America Don
Echlundt seven years ago;
3) And, M. C. Burton's season
individual total for a Michigan
player. Burton had 460 pointsr last
year while Tidwell now has 471
with two games to play.
Wings First Game
Despite the records, th'e most
important thing the quiet, modest
eager broke was Michigan State's
back as Michigan avoided t he
embarrassing road to a winless
Big Ten season.
He did so by hitting 17 of 26
shots from the floor and seven of
10 from the free throw line for
his greatest evening in an already
ibrilliant career.
And he did so at a trying time.
Michigan had lost captain Terry
Miller, who had missed a week's
practice because of a flu attack,
and pressure was at its peak on
coaches and players alike for their
sub-mediocre season.
Scoring Duel
Add to that the big billing about
the scoring duel between State's
highly-publicized Horace Walker
and Tidwell, who had been aver-
aging 20.4 peg game.
And finally the point splurge
came in a game when his clutch
scoring was needed most. Michigan
and State tied or surged ahead
some 51 times during the evening
in a game that must rank as one
of the closest in Michigan history.
However, it would be unfair to
call Tidwell the whole show.
There was bruteful Bob Brown,
a 210-pound, 6'4" center, who
pulled down 18 rebounds to Walk-
er's 16--and thus became the sec-
ond man this year to outdo the
SSpartan on the boards. It took an
All America; - California's Dan
Imoff-to do it the other time.
tSpoils Boasts
Opportunist Lovell F'arris, only
6'3" himself, spoiled the boasts
rmade by Spartans about Walker's
scoring abilities as he held him to
18 points. Farris played the cen-
ter of a tight zone defense that
wrapped around Walker. Farris
added 16 points himself, including
his usual amount of clutch shots.
Walker was third in Conference
Nsoring and led in rebounding.
Spunky Jon Hall, a sophomore
wowas added to the squad this
seester, did his share by pester-
ing State's offense throughout the
night. His harassing played an
important part in the first half as
his steals led to -everal baskets
in Michigan's spirited start.

Can Bring
The University's six-month-old
Institute of Science and Tech-
nology can be the center of "vast,
scientifically - oriented industry,"
its director, Prof. Robert A. White,
told a Detroit audience last night.
Spelling out dreams of a future
technological complex in the state,
he said this industry would be
based upon pioneering research in
electronics, nuclear power, chem-
istry and high-energy physics.
Speaks at Dinner
Prof. White spoke at a birthday
dinner for Gov. G. Mennen Wil-
"Automated beyond belief and
supporting a society of scientists
and a supremely skilled technical
labor force in a culture of high
living standards with adequate
leisure for true civilization," he
said "all of this (would be) in
harmony with a great matrix of
universities, well supported by a
society which understands and
appreciates the meaning and sig-
nificance of knowledge."
The Institute, which was estab-
lished here last July with a $500,-
000 appropriation from the Legis-
lature, is emphasizing space
science and technology and Great1
Lakes research.
Sponsors Lectures
It has already sponsored several
series of lectures, including one
on "space astrophysics. Publica-
tion of these talks is planned.
Prof. White also reported by
June more than fifty of the most
distinguished scientists and en-
gineers In the world will have par-
ticipated in meetings held under
Institute auspices.
Institute research appointments
have been made in 10 key fields,
he added, and assistance has been
given in the establishment of a
"high - energy plasma - Mach 20
wind tunnel program" at the Uni-
Approve Grants
Fellowship grants to graduate
students at the University, and
Michigan State and Wayne State
Universities have been approved,
and cooperation with other schools
in the state is being charted.
The Institute's long-range goal
is to bring outstanding scientists
and engineers to the state.
Labeling its establishment, as a
"courageous" step by the Legisla-
ture, Prof. White pointed out it is
"limitless in its potentialities for
capitalizing research to the bene-
fit of the state."
Rush To End
For Women.
Bids and preferences, IBM ma-
chines and emotions, sisters and
pledges will come together with
the end of rush today.
Bid cards will be placed in the
dormitory mailboxes, where the
rushees may pick them up at 10:30
a m.
There will then be a four and
one-half hour wait until 3 p.m.
when the girls who have received
bid cards may go to the League
Ballroom and find out which of
their preferenced sororities have
pledged them.
The new pledges then dash over
to their future homes where they
are greeted by their new sisters
who meet them with open arms,
usually in the middle of the street.
They will then enter their so-
rority houses, where there will be
some initial ceremonies and a good
deal of excitement. Fraternities

send flowers, the pledges will begin
to learn each other's names, and
the sorority system settles down
to its normal level.
Rush is over for the year.



At Andes Resort Meetin

Sallade Set
To Seek Bid
For Office
Rep. George Sallade (R-Ann
Arbor) will bid for the Republican
nomination for Lieutenant Gover-
nor in the Aug. 2 state primary.
He expects "vigorous and well-
financed opposition. .. from those
who would rather see the Repub-
lican party remain the captive of
the relative and privileged few,
rather than see it become a suc-
cessful vehicle for governmental
leadership with broad appeal at
the state level.
"I have long felt that the Re-
publican party of Michigan needed
to separate itself from some of the
special interests whose views have
been so well pronounced in the
Legislature and bring itself into
step witir Its national counterpart.
"A great gulf separates the pres-
ent legislative leadership from the
more forward thinking elements
in the party organization at the
state level."
Sallade, who has been often
labeled "Young Turk," argued that
"in many areas, my views more
closely parallel those expressed
in the party platforms and on oc-
casion by the State Central Cor-
mittee" than the views of the
many Republican legislators.
Two Opponents
At present, he is opposed by Sen.
Edward Hutchinson (R-Fennville),
candidate of the conservative Sen-
ate, and former lieutenant gover-
nor Clarence A. Reid, a "loner."
"In past campaigns, Sallade
charged, "our candidates have too
often spent their time convincing
those already likely to vote Re-
publican and ignored the indepen-:
dents and members of the opposite
political party, whose support we
need if victory is to be obtained.
"I intend to campaign in the
cafeteria lines rather than in the
supper clubs too often frequented
by office-seeking Republicans.
"My present plans call for a
modest expenditure of money com-
bined with a tremendous expendi-
ture of personal energy . . . My
objective is to try to win the
nomination, not to buy it."
Hutchinsop Welcomes
In Fennville, Hutchinson, who
feels his own changes are "good,"
"welcomed" Sallade into the
He called himself a "regular
Republican"and mentioned Sal-
lade has been often called a
Stanley Thayer, Washtenaw
County Republican Party chair-
man, said the local party has
made no statement supporting
Sallade. In fact, "it is a general
practice not. to endorse anyone In
the primary."
Thayer assumed Sallade would
have support in the County, es-
pecially in his own First District.
Sallade said last month if he
lost in his bid he would not "re-
gard the defeat as my exit from
"I will complete requirements
for a law degree at the University
and come back more qualified."

Plan To Hold Meeting
Like Camp David
By The Associated Press
BARILOCHE, Argentina-Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower will
begin Camp David-like meetings
with Argentine President Arturo
Frondizi in an Andes Mountain
resort area today.
Meeting privately with Frondizi
as he did last September with Pre-
mier Nikita S. Khrushchev, EIsen-
hower will have facilities for golf-
ing, fishing, talking or just loaf-
ing available to him.
Previous to flying with Frondizi
to the lake-studded resort area,
Eisenhower received a thunderous
reception from hundreds of thou-
sands of Argentines who -turned
out to greet him at Mar del Plata,
an Argentine beach resort on the
Short Visit
Eisenhower paid a short two
and one-half hour visit to Mar. del
Plata, 230 miles southeast of
Buenos Aires and the half-way
point of his South American tour.
Security precautions had tight-
ened as a result of incidental
demonstrations in the capital Fri-
day by Peronist and left-wing so-
cialist groups -- the one for ex-
dictator Juan D. Peron and the
other against the United States.
But all was harmony in Mar del
Plata, a town of 350,000 swelled by
the influx of summer vacationers
to more than a million.
Throngs of flag-waving Argen-
tines lined the ocean front drive
leading to the hotel Provincial,
where a dozen gas-filled balloons
held United States and Argentine
flags aloft in warm, humid air.
Receives Key
At the hotel Eisenhower received
a key to Mar del Plata, called "the
pearl of the Atlantic.', He "e-
pressed regret that he could not
stay longer.
"The people of Argentina and.
this city have a warm spot in my
heart," Eisenhower said, and
pledged he will do everything he
can to strengthen the friendship
between peoples of the, United
States and Argentina.
At a 20-minute reception in his
honor, he drank orange juice and
ate some pudding.
Busy Schedule
Standing up' well under a sched-
ule that kept him on the go for
from 15 to 18 hours a day, Eisen-
hower had to leave then.
As the 69-year-old United States
chief of state and Frondizi, 51,
headed to the airport in an open
limousine, a small group broke
through lines of blue-jacketed po-
lice. They crowded alongside the
car to shake Eisenhower's hand.
He shook hands with several as the
car continuedto move. n r
A woman handed Eisenhower a
small Argentine flag. He held it
high and waved it, drawing a burst
of cheers.

U.S. Scores Triumph
Over, Russia in Hockey*
SQUAW VALLEY (P) - A blazing goal by Bill Christian of War-
road, Minn., with five minutes to play gave the United States a come-
back 3-2 victory over defending champion Russia yesterday and
virtually clinched ani'Olympic ice hockey championship for the Yanks.
It was the fourth straight victory in the championship round
robin for the Americans, who only need to beat or tie Czechoslovakia
today for their first Olympic gold medal ever won by a United States
hockey team. The Yanks beat the Czechs in the preliminary round.
It also marked the first time a United States hockey team had
ever beaten a Russian squad. The Soviets won the Olympic title four
years ago at Cortina, Italy. The overflow crowd of 10,000 in the arena
went wild when Christian, his ,
brother Roger and Tommy Wil-
liams of Duluth, Minn., went down A TMSU TRA CK
the ice on the winning drive.
Getting an assist from Williams
and his brother, Christian drove,
the goal past the Soviet's rugged
goalie, Nikolai Puchkov.
The Russians had gone ahead
2-1 in the first period. America's
first goal was made by Bill Cleary,
Boston lawyer, early in the open-
ing period. After the Russians had
gone ahead, Bill scored the tieing
goal late in the second period. +
The body-checking was so hard
that you could almost hear the'
teeth rattle in the stands. But
there were no untoward incidents.I
Once the Soviet wingman, Kon-
stantin Loktov, complained to the;

have a very real fear we might
commit ourselves in some way to
the Western bloc."
Sukarno has reiterated Indo-
nesia's neutralist position repeat-
edly since Khrushchev arrived 10
days ago. Indonesians say there is1
little chance he would abandon it.
One informant said neither the
economic agreement nor the joint
statement will include any stipu-
lation that Indonesia maintain its
neutralism and stay out of SEATO
or any anti-Communist group.
Soviet Credits
Soviet credits will apply to de-
veloping steel mills, agricultural
projects and nonferrous metals,
chemical and textile industries. An
Indonesian source said the possi-
bility of future Soviet military aid
was discussed unofficially but
nothing concrete was requested or
Foreign Minister Subandrio told
newsmen the only official condition
attached to the loan was: "it has
to be paid back."
Khrushchev and Kremlin propa-
ganda make a great point of
claiming the Soviet Union attaches
no strings to its aid. It says Ameri-
can aid is extended only with poli-
tical conditions.

Hope fuls
Enter Races
WASHINGTON (P)-Vice-Presi-
dent Richard M. Nixon, who really
doesn't have to enter any of them,
this week announced his sev~enth
entry into state presidential pri-
This seventh one, in Pennsyl-
vania, will come April 26.
The pattern is consistent -he
ha. no real opposition for endorse-
ment as the Republican presiden-
tial candidate, and he goes into a
primary only if he's invited and
made welcome.
Nixon's backers figure this pro-
cedure will go a long way toward
demonstrating party harmony.
They see it as an answed to Demo-
cratic charges that Nixon is a
factional candidate, specifically
that he's the Old Guard's boy.
The other six states whose pri-
maries Nixon will be in are New
Hampshire, March 8; Wisconsin,
April 5; Illinois, April 12; Indiana
and Ohio, May 3 and Oregon, May
20. The list may grow.
On the Democratic side, Sen
John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts
stressed more and more the make-
or-break characteristics of the
Wisconsin primary in which he
and Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey of
Minnesota are doing battle.
In applying his emphasis, Ken-
nedy sounds confident. Only a man
who expected to win big would be
likely to say what he did: the lose
probably will be eliminated from
contention for the presidentia
Humphrey agreed to this extent
"the result will sure affect the
campaigns of both of us."

lighted the Michigan track team's overwhelming 87-54 victory over
Michigan State here last night.
Warming up for next week's Big Ten meet, the Wolverines came
up with what Coach Don Canham called a "great" team performance.
Several Wolverines posted their best times of the season and some,
like Seth, posted the best times of their career.
In a blazing 600-yard race, Seth led by a wide margin all the way
and set a new varsity record with the sparkling time of 1:10.7. The
