Can anyone defeat Sen. John
Kennedy, after his decisive victory
over Sen. Hubert Humphrey in
West Virginia?
At least three faculty members
see Kennedy as the man to beat
for the Democratic nomination.
Prof. John White of the politi-
cal science department thinks that
he will be "hard to stop. No one
Is clearly the number two man in
the Democratic party."
Predicts Nomination
Another political scientist, Prof.
George Peek, predicts a Kennedy
nomination, but can conceive of a
convention alliance giving the nod
to Sen. Stuart Symington, or pos-
sibly Adla Stevenson.
To Carl Cohen, of the philoso-
phy department, Kennedy is very
strong, but the primary "may
bring to greater attention the
name of Stevenson," because the
Humphrey camp probably will find
Stevenson most nearly duplicates
its liberal ideas.i
"Of all the candidates in either'
party, no one has anything like
the international standing and
respect-and justifiable respect-
of Stevenson. His intellect towers
above the others."
A different view was voiced by
Prof. Max Dufner of the German
department. "The primary is kind
of a joke ... a popularity contest."
Exciting Convention
"It will be a terribly exciting
convention in Los Angeles, pro-
viding Kennedy doesn't win on the
first ballot," Cohen remarked.
If nominated, the two political
science teachers feel that Ken-
nedy's chances in November look
good. Prof. White said that Ken-
nedy would win, barring a large-
scale defection. He noted that the
country is basically Democratic.
According to Prof. Peek, "Nei-
ther Kennedy nor Nixon have a
strong public image like Eisen-
hower." Therefore, voters will fol-
low their traditional party senti-
ments, and this favors the Demo-
And what of the man who with-
drew from the race?
Chances Killed
It's a "healthy sign" when a
tpolitician "admits when he is
licked," Prof. Peek said. He feels
that the primary killed any future
presidential chances for Hum-
phrey, as did Kefauver's unsuc-
cessful campaign in 1956.
A number of Prof. White's col-
leagues predicted Tuesday that
Humphrey would withdraw if de-
feated. "He did the only thing he
could do, without becoming a
Democratic Harold Stassen."
Prof. White also noted that
Humphrey was hurt by being cast
in the unfortunate role of a spar-
ring partner.

Crisler Announces
Decision of Board
Bill Perigo asked to be relieved
of his basketball coaching duties
at the Board in Control of Inter-
collegiate Athletics meeting last
His reason for the request was
that he wanted tosdevote full time
to obtaining a master's degree.
Athletic Director H. O. Fritz Cris-
ler, who made the announcement
public following the Board meet-
ing, said Perigo's decision was no
surprise to him.
Crisler said, "I had known for
a long time that Bill wasn't in-
terested in making coaching a
lifetime. career. He mentioned to
me a couple of years ago that he
would ask to be relieved someday."
To Get Master's
The indication from Crisler was
that Perigo was more interested
in the fields of administration and
teaching and would enter one of
them upon receiving his master's

However, it was just a year ago
that Perigo brought his club up
to a surprising second place tie in
the Big Ten race. The Conference
record that year was 8-6.
Succeeded McCoy
In his eight years as Michigan's
head coach, Perigo's teams won
78 games and lost 99. Perigo suc-
ceeded Ernie McCoy, who brought
Michigan its last basketball title
back in 1948.
The 48 year-old coach came to
Michigan from Western Michigan
Swhere he had built up a fine record
over a three year period. He had
gained earlier fame at Benton
Harbor where he built a basketball
dynasty and picked off one state
high school title.
Since Perigo's request was rather
sudden, Crisler indicated the Board
had no idea as to who Perigo's
successor would be. He said the
Board had requested him to hold
interviews with prospective candi-

Plan Drive
For Area
"Citizens' Drive for Con-Con"
will begin tomorrow night in Ann
Arbor, Ypsilanti and Saline in an
effort to obtain the maximum
number of signatures on petitions
calling for a state constitutional
The Ann Arbor group now has
over 5,000 signatures, with a goal
of 10,500.
The drives are part of a state-
wide joint effort by the League
of Women Voters and the Michi-
gan Junior Chamber of Commerce
to gain support for Con-Con.
Need Signatures
Signatures of 300,000 people are
needed to place the question on
the November ballot. The petitions
must be in by July 1.
Con-con has been supported by
numerous groups and prominent!
individuals in the state. Among
them are the Michigan Education
Association, Parent-Teacher As-
sociation, United Church Women,
Republican party, Gov. G. Men-
nen Williams, and gubernatorial
candidates Paul Bagwell and
James M. Hare.
It is expected that 400 marchers
will participate in the one-day
drive. The city is being split into
87 districts in order to thoroughly,
cover the area.'
In past elections, supporters of
the constitutional convention have
been stopped by the provision that4
a call for a convention must be
approved by a majority of all per-
sons voting in the election. Since
most people vote only for the
candidates, the convention has
been defeated.
The Jaycee Womens Voter prop-
osition would seek to change the
present constitution by providing
that a convention may be called
by a majority of people voting on{
the issue. It also provides that a
convention call shall be on the
ballot next April.
Select Delegates
If this is successful, one dele-.
gate will be selected for each sen-
ator and representative, within
four months.
Gilbert Bursley, Republican can-
didate for state representative,
has issued a statement urging
support of the drive and the con-
vention. "Effectiveness and econ-
omy" is the goal of state govern-
ment "and a revised constitution
could lead in this direction."

Charges 'Slander'
Kenneth (Tug) Wilson, Big Ten
Commissioner, called the charges
"slander" and "sensationalism"
while various conference coaches
termed them "lies" and "far-
fetched" statements.
Writing in the current issue of
the weekly magazine, Jack Olsen
said some players receive weekly

tices was discussed in an article

last month in placing Indiana on
The magazine quoted unidenti-
fied recruiters from other univer-

sities as saying, "Indiana had to
get caught because it didn't use
any class" and the recruiters used
"no finesse."
"High pressure recruiting has
always been the norm in the Big
Ten," Olsen said in the article.
"It took Forrest Evashevski's tal-
ent to build Iowa into a football-
power with an extensive recruit-
ting program which never (well,
hardly ever) crossed the bounds
of propriety.
"Star football players are kept
happy at other Big Ten schools in
a myriad of extralegal ways. An
angel meets the players in the
locker room after a game, shakes
hands all around and deposits
bills ranging from $10 to $50 in
eager, sweaty palms.
Receive Pay
At another school, football play-
ers receive unsigned envelopes in
the Monday morning mail with
their weekly honorarium enclosed.
"Many Big Ten football players
are carried on the payrolls of in-
dustry at $40 or $50 weekly; some-
times they show up for 'work,' and
sometimes they stay in bed."
Wilson, in a statement released
in Chicago said:

State Plans
To Consider
'U' Budget
Lawmakers Hope
For Quick Passage
The State Legislature is ex-
pected to take final action today
on appropriations for higher edu-
cation, including the University's'
proposed $35.2 million budget. -
Although no headway was made
when the Legislature reconvened
yesterday after a 24-day recess,
lawmakers were optimistic about
quick passage today.
Passage of the University 'ap-
propriation has been delayed by
disagreement over changes in other
sections of the bill.
House To Yield
Rep. Allison Green of Kingston,
Republican leader in the House,
said yesterday he thought the
House would have to yield to Sen-
ate insistence on knocking down
a House-inserted $1 million appro-
priation boost for Wayne State
University to $400,000, all the Sen-
ate will allow.
Sen. Elmer R. Porter (R-Bliss-
field), chairman of the Senate Ap-
propriations Committee said he
expected both houses to agree on
the $400,000 boost or "they won't
have anything."
If the bill is not passed today,
it will have to be re-introduced in
both houses, the entire procedure
requiring at leasti11tdays before
final action could be taken
Await Decision
The proposed compromise now
awaiting decision by the House
made some other changes in the
education bill, eliminating House-
voted increases of $129,000 for
Michigan Institute of Mining and
Technology, $95,000 for Northern
Michigan College and $200,000 for
adult education.
Other questions remaining to
be settled include state construc-
tion and a pay raise for legislators.
It was speculated that a coali-
tion of Democrats and Republicans
in the House would be formed to
settle on a $1,250 a year pay boost
for lawmakers, putting the new
level at $6,250.
Democrats, holding out for a
$2,500 increase, rejected a similar
proposal four weeks ago.
Rep. Joseph Kowalski of De-
troit, Democratic floor leader, and
Green said that chances for com-
promise on differences appeared
