In Daily History
'U' celebrates win
over Michigan State
Nov. 14, 1954 - A sellout crowd
of over 97,000 fans witnessed Mich-
igan's first victory in five years over
instate rival Michigan State Saturday.
In what could be described as a per-
fect afternoon, with ideal weather and
a raucous capacity crowd, Michigan
raised hopes for a bowl bid with an
emphatic 33-7 win.
The outcome of the game was a dis-
appointment to the estimated 25,000
Michigan State faithful who made
the trip to Ann Arbor waving green
and white banners and sporting "Beat
Michigan" buttons.
In reward for their rout of the Spartans,
the VVolverines have received an 80-foot-
tall statuette, the Paul Bunyan Trophy,
given by Gov. Mennen Williams. The
trophy, inaugurated last season, spent the
game on the Spartans' sideline but will
now have a place in Ann Arbor.

COmmission:
Students should
go abroad more

Plan calls to place 1
million college students
overseas by 2017
CHICAGO (AP) - A bipartisan
federal commission is pushing for a
dramatic increase in the number of
U.S. college and university students
taking classes in other countries.
In a study being released today, the
Commission on the Abraham Lincoln
Study Abroad Fellowship Program is
proposing hundreds of millions in
federal spending to place 1 million
U.S. undergraduates in schools over-
seas by 2017.
"Study abroad is not a frill," said
Peter McPherson, chairman of the
Lincoln Commission and former

cent of U.S. students overseas study
in Europe, McPherson said.
More than 190,000 U.S. college
students studied in other countries
in 2004, according to the Institute
of International Education. The IE
oversees public and private exchange
programs such as the graduate stu-
dent-oriented Fulbright Scholarship,
which will get $185 million from the
federal government next year.
"I think it's one of those big ideas
that may catch the imagination of the
country and certainly is much needed
if we're going to keep up with study
abroad in this country," said Peggy
Blumenthal, executive vice president
of the IIE. "Whether the funds can be
found in a tight budget environment is
something Congress is going to have
to sort through."
According to
one of information from the
IIE, 2,269 Michigan
dleas State University stu-
atch dents studied abroad
during the 2003-
iation of 04 academic year
- second only to
y and New York University
among all colleges
s much and universities.
, "Some sort of
we re international experi-
ence or understand-
eep UpJ ing has become a
abroad necessity in today's
world, and by offer-

president of Mich-
igan State Univer-
sity. "If you have
a number of stu-
dents go abroad
and come back; it
changes the way
people can teach.
It adds a global
richness to a cam-
pus that just a few
students abroad
can't achieve."
The commis-
sion, proposed by
the late Sen. Paul
Simon (D-ll.) was
created by Con-
gress in 2004. It
includes educators
and members of
Congress.
The panel wants
Congress to com-
mit $50 million
annually starting
next year, with
nearly 90 percent

Mariners lost in shipwreck
remembered in memorial

of the money to

be spent on grants and fellowships
and distributed by national competi-
tions and by schools. Schools would
be required to sustain enrollment in
study abroad programs to stay eli-
gible for federal funds.
McPherson and other commission
leaders said they hope one-year grants
and fellowships as high as $5,000 per
student would create more interest in
overseas study among students and
more participation by U.S. schools.
The commission also wants - to
send more students to Asian and
Arab countries. More than 60 per-

in a statement.
Some schools already offer sti-
pends to supplement the cost of over-
seas studies. Some students rely on
programs such as the Benjamin Gil-
man International Scholarship, which
will get $3.7 million in government
funding next year, said Bill DeLaud-
er, executive director of the Lincoln
Commission and former president of
Delaware State University.
"Money is not the whole deal,"
McPherson said. "What's also impor-
tant is the campus deciding that
they're going to make it practical to
fit this into'their curriculum."

DETROIT (AP) - A crowd stood
silently Sunday as bells rang in remem-
brance of the mariners who were lost
when the Edmund Fitzgerald sank in
a vicious storm on Lake Superior 30
years ago.
A memorial bell was rung as the
29 names were read. Each ring was
echoed by a toll of the bell in the tower
of Mariners' Church of Detroit.
The church holds the service every
year to memorialize the freighter's
crew lost on Nov. 10, 1975, as well
as members of the military killed in
action.

And the reasons for ringing the bells
remain the same as they were the morning
after the ship went down, when the Rev.
Richard Ingalls tolled the church's tower
bell 29 times in memory of the men..
"The bell is the voice of feelings we
feel that are difficult to articulate," Ingalls
said at Sunday's service.
Although intended at the time as a pri-
vate memorial, Ingalls' actions the morn-
ing of Nov. 11, 1975 were documented by
members of the media who had gathered
at the church and later immortalized in
the 1976 Gordon Lightfoot song, "The
Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald."

The famous ballad was sung at the
beginning of Sunday's service, along with
the Mariner's Hymn. About 600 people,
including sailors in dress uniforms,
packed into the church's small sanctuary
and spilled out into the hallways.
Sunlight streamed through the stained-
glass windows of the church, which was
founded 163 years ago, and a wreath of
white flowers lay against the alter.
The service was among many 30th
anniversary observances taking place
in the Great Lakes region, where the
Fitzgerald is the most famous of more
than 6,000 known shipwrecks.
