Game of Year
Grant Leads Team
With Two Markers
Michigan's hockey team ended
Minnesota's mastery over the Wol-
verines with a convincing 5-2 victory
in a rough and hard-fought contest
last night at the Coliseum before an
excited crowd of more than 1200 fans.
The victory was the tenth straight
for Coach Vic Heyliger's unbeaten
sextet and was the first victory the
Wolverines have scored over the
Gophers since 1942.
Wally Grant, speedy wigman from I
Eveleth, Minn., was the leading p
scorer for the Maize and Blue puck- wh
men. Captain Connie Hill, Al Ren-
frew, and Gord MacMillan tallied
also. Bud Frick and Bob Carley
scored for the Gophers. U
Typical of all Minnesota-Michigan
clashes, the game was bitterly con-N
tested and was marked by hard body-N
checking with the Wolverines getting1
the better of the argument. Bob
Marshall aid Ross Smith were hand-
ing out hard but clean checks in a W
spectacular manner. Fourteen penal- tion-
ties were called in the hard-fought tryo

Direct Appeal
Is Important
Pointing out that popular arrange-
ments of classical music, such as "To-
night We Love" (from Tschaikow-
sky's "Concerto in B flat minor) have
increased the sale of the classical re-
cordings tremendously, Jascha Hei-
fetz, internationally famous violinist,
said that music must appeal directly
to an audience's senses to be appre-
Not Mathematical
Music, an inspirational expression,
cannot be mathematical, he said. "If
you have to figure too much, enjoy-
ment of a composition's beauty is
like seeking a solution to a problem,"
the violinist declared. Comparing a
new composition to a modern paint-
ing, the Russian-born musician said
that each must constitute an experi-
ence. "Take a painting of just some
wavy lines; the title is 'A Woman
Swimming'-but I can't appreciate
He cited again the works of Tschai-
kowsky which, with the already clas-
sical compositions of Prokofieff, share
a popularity for most musical audi-
ences. Prokofieff, Shostakovich and
Stravinsky were all new and con-
sidered radical at one time, the viol-
inist noted; however, they have been
acknowledged as great composers.
Folk Music
An exponent of American folk mu-
sic, and particularly of new works
by young composers, the long-time
concert favorite said he favored per-
formances of new compositions, par-
ticularly by the well-established or-
chestras. "I remember in Paris at the
first performance of the 'Rites of
Spring' how Stravinsky was booed
by a rioting audience."

' Statement
On Admission
The enrollment of returning
veterans, which is greatly in ex-
cess of expectations, makes it im-
possible for the University of Mich-
igan to admit a large number of
applicants from outside the state.
The University particularly re-
grets that this limitation must ap-
ply to out-cf-state veterans as
well as other applicants for ad-
mission. Qualified residents of
Michigan will be admitted as in
the past.
The situation in Michigan has
been accentuated by the action of
other universities in limiting ad-
missions. A result has been that
the University has had an ab-
normal number of out-ofstate
Present enrollment of veterans is
in excess of 2,200 and on the basis
of admissions to date thenumber
will exceed 5,000 in the spring
term. To accommodate thisrin-
crease in the number of veterans,
the University is preparing for a
total enrollment in March of 1,500
more students than it has ever had
in residence in any previous time.
Further, it is faced with the pros-
pect of a veterans' enrollment
next September of 7,500. A limita-
tion of admissions of out-of-state
students seems the only fair way
to meet the problem.
Out-of-state students now in
residence, former students, and
those already admitted will be
permitted to enroll.

Of Draft Act,
Johnson Says
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Jan. 18-A Selec-
tive Service recommendation for con-
tinuation of the draft collided today
with a Senatorial prediction that it
would "be out of the window" May
The recommendation came from
Major General Lewis B. Hershey, the
draft director;. the prediction from
Senator Johnson (D-Colo.), chair-
man of a mitary subcommittee in-
quiring into the Army's demobiliza-
tion troubles.
Johnson declared the public
hearings ended today, the third day
of the proceedings. The two other
members of the committee, Sena-
tors Revercomb (R-WVa.) and
Briggs (D-Mo.), objected, asserting
that only Army and draft leaders
had been heard. They wanted the
committee to go into telegraphed
and cabled complaints from GIs,
which Revercomb said were "vol-
The committee spent the final day
questioning Hershey about why the
draft failed to provide enough re-
placements, thus forcing a slowdown
of demobilization.
The draft director, said that if
Congress extends the Selective Serv-
ice Act beyond May 15,which it is
scheduled to expire, it would be possi-
ble to provide an additional half mil-
lion men.
He also thought it would help if
definite tour of duty were provided
in the draft law. He suggested that
18 months, now used as one of the
volunteer enlistment terms, would
be an appropriate period.
Hershey recommended that the
War and Navy departments lower the
physical standards and that men
with "substantially less" than 18
months service be eligible for re-in-

Limited Facilities
Force 'U' Polc
State Applicants Will Be Accepted;
14,000 Enrollment Is Anticipated
Admission of out-of-state students will be discontinued for the spring
term, President Alexander G. Ruthven announced yesterday.
Dr. James P. Adams, University Provost, said that "out-of-state stu-
dents now in residence, former students and those already admitted will
be permitted to enroll."
"Insufficient housing and overcrowded classrooms and laboratories
force the University to adopt a temporary policy which is greatly re-
gretted," President Ruthven said.
The limitation applies to the term which opens March 4.
"The University's first obligation is to the people of Michigan. We
will continue in the future, as in the past, to accept every qualified Michi-
gan student within the limits of our facilities. It is now certain that the
enrollment of Michigan students will exceed 8,200 in the next term," Pres-
ident Ruthven said.
The University expects 14,000 to enroll next term, including 5,000
The temporary admissions policy was adopted Thursday by the Deans'
Conference, official administrative group for all the schools and colleges.
It became official yesterday when all admissions officers of the University
were notified of the policy in a meeting with Provost Adams.

Dorm Space
Assured for
Ousted Girls
Dean Lloyd Confident
Rooms Can Be Found
Women students whose present res-
idences will be reverted to use by
men students at the end of the pres-
ent semester were assured yesterday
by Miss Alice C. Lloyd, Dean of Wom-
en, that new housing will be found
for them.
In a statement to The Daily, Dean
Lloyd said that a survey is now being
made to find additional space in
dormitories and League houses.
The text of Dean Lloyd's state-
ment follows:
Women students now on' campus
who are losing their present living
quarters at the end of the present
semester are assured that the Office
of the Dean of Women is assuming
responsibility for re-housing them.
Just where each girl will be assigned
space is still in the process of being
decided and cannot be announced
until later.
Vaughan Taken Over
This is due to the fact that not
only are the women losing Victor
Vaughan dormitory, which had been
temporarily given over to occupancy
by girls, but also a certain number of
the fraternity houses, which, during
the period when the men were in the
armed forces, had been converted to
the use of women. It is not known at
the present time exactly how many of
these fraternity houses will be taken
back for the use of fraternity men.
In the meantime the Office of the
Dean of Women is making a search
for any additional space that may be
available in dormitories and League
Houses. A survey is being made by
the Sanitarian of the Health Service
to determine what rooms are large
enough to take an additional occu-
pant. Only in rooms where health
standards permit are increases being
allowed. By this means it is hoped
that the women now living in Victor
Vaughan and the converted fratern-
ity houses can be re-assigned to sim-
ilar housing units.
League Houses have been surveyed

FPHA Answer
On Dormitories
Expected Today
Acceptance of Bids
Will Help Shortage
An answer to the University's re-
quest for eight dormitory units from
the Federal Public Housing Author-
ity in Cleveland is expected today.
Grant of the University's request
will go a long way toward solving
campus housing problems, Francis C.
Shiel, Director of Residence Halls,
declared yesterday.
With 2,500 more veterans expected
to enroll for the spring semester, the
dormitory units will accommodate
approximately 1,000. Gain of two
houses in the East Quad and one in
the West Quad for civilian use will
also help to alleviate the housing
Displacement of more than 300
girls from Victor Vaughn House and
converted fraternity houses is making
necessary a survey to determine how
many more girls can be housed in
Stockwell, Mosher-Jordan and other
women's dormitories.
Houses Returned
Fraternity houses being taken back
by the men include Delta Tau Delta,
Phi Gamma Delta, Phi Kappa Psi and
Sigma Phi, which has been used as
the English Language Institute. Oth-
ers may be included in the list, Mr.
Shiel said, since the plans have not
all been made as yet. Returning these
houses to the men will help in housing
male students, but make the situation
more difficult for the women.
Besides being put into rooms in
the large dorms which are able to ac-
commodate another student, the dis-
placed girls may be put in league
Two fraternity houses, Sigma Nu
and Phi Sigma are being taken over
to house women students next term.
Men's Dorms Crowded
In the men's dormitories, Mr. Shiel
explained, each double room is oc-
cupied by three students each, and
each single room by two. No further
crowding in these dorms is possible.
Approximately 350 of the veterans
now on campus taking refresher
courese in preparation for the spring
term are now being :housed in the
rooms in East and West Quad which
have been vacated by the Army and
