Soviet Plan
Gets Setback
In Test Ballot
Final Vote To Be
Taken Monday
By The Associated Press
United Nations political commit
tee tonight refused to send Rus
sia's "warmonger" resolution to a
drafting sub - committee, thu
handing the Soviet Union a set-
back in the first test ballot o.
Moscow's key plan before the 1941
General Assembly.
The vote was 29 to 12 with foul
Latin American countries, India
and Ethiopia joining the Soviet
bloc in the minority.
As a result, the Soviet resolu-
tion will now come before the 57-
nation committee for vote or
Monday with delegates saying
there was no chance of passage.
Vote on Other Ballots
Other ballots will be taken or
the Australian, French and Can-
adian versions which run virtu-
ally counter to the Soviet proposal.
Czechoslovakia asked for ad-
journment immediately after the
ballot, Russia agreed and their
appeal carried over British ob-
jections, 36 to 9.
In the last hour before the test
vote, Russia took a conciliatory
stand and appealed for a joint
:'esolution acceptable to all. Pre-
viously Russia had plumped stren-
uously for adoption of its proposal
with a series of slashing attacks on
"war propaganda" in the United
States and on the American Press.
Spoke Two Hours
Andrei Y. Vishinsky, Soviet de-
puty foreign minister, spoke near
two hours in his last-ditch fight
for the Soviet proposal, repeating
many of his old charges against.
"reactionary" circles in the United
States, Greece and Turkey.
In the 57-nation social com-
mittee, meeting in a nearby cham-
ber, Russia's V. A. Zorin said "the
time has come for us to cease tc
believe in the myth of the freedom
of the press in America." He ridi-
culed stories about "flying sauc-
ers" in the American press and
said they were published by "Am-
erican newspapers as a part of
their propaganda for war."

It Easy, Michigan,' Is Pre-Game Hope;
Europe Aid, No Bolster for Socialism

The first question asked Minnesota's former Gov. Harold E. Stas-
sen yesterday at a press conference in the Student Publications Build-
ing proved to be one with unexpected implications.
Questioned just before the game, "who will win today?" the,
Governor replied that he was afraid somebody would ask him that.
"Hope Michigan takes it easy on us," he said, shaking his head. Stas-
sen, who could be one of the Gopher playeirs himself, then proceeded
to answer more serious questions put to him by assembled reporters.
Replying to a "condition of England" question, Stassen explained
briefly his views on aid to social-
istic countries:
"We should reach an under-
71standing with the governments
that while we are extending aid,
that aid should not be means for
increasing their socialization."
Stassen said he had inspected
British industry in his trip this
year. In particular he found
"bad management" responsible
for what he called a lag in coal
production. "And coal is hold-
ing back British recovery," he

Maine Named as
Disaster Area
By The Associated Press
BAR HARBOR, Me., Oct. 25-
The entire state of Maine was a
disaster area tonight-so pro-
claimed by President Truman-as
forest fires spread new destruc-
tion in the northeastern states.
New outbreaks in New England
came as rising daytime winds
threatened the defense gains
made dung a calm night.
The frrest fire death toll mount-
ed fromn 18 to 20 in the nation
and in New England property loss
now stands at $27,000,000.
Meanwhile wary fire fighters
patrolled more than three score
blazes in Michigan's northern for-
ests in the continuing fight to
hold off menacing flames.
"High Hazard"
All fires were repored under
control, but new emergency steps
were taken as a "high hazard"
persisted in tinder-dry timber
The construction department
reported a "quiet day" in the fire
zones of both Upper and Lower
Michigan, where fire fighters have
been mobilized in force.
However, an extreme hazard re-
mained in the absence of rain.
The U.S. Weather Bureau said
there was "no general rain in
sight" for the critical regions de-
spite a promised rainfall in parts
of southern Michigan.
Report Fifty Fires
Fifty fires were reported in the
Upper Peninsula and another 20
in Lower Michigan in a late sum-
mation from the conservation de-
partment. The Upper Peninsula
reported no new fires, while the
Lower Peninsula had two small
new blazes.
An early report of possible ris-
ing winds was modified in a
weather bureau forecast Satur-
day night which said there might
be "some increase" by Monday
but "nothing out of the ordinary."
Caled to Duty
Every available forester in
Northern Michigan was called to
duty by the conservation depart-
ment, as leaves were cancelled
and even raw recruits placed on a
standby basis.
At Harbor Springs; multi-mil-
lion dollar summer playground of
wealthy midwestern families, au-
thorities prepared for the possi-
bility of a fire-borne disaster such
as devastated Bar Harbor, Me.
Although no fires were reported
in the area, Fire Chief Ed Juil-
lerett backed up Gov. Sigler's
emergency fire-prevention orders
with even more stringent regula-
tions against brush and rubbish
fires in the glittering Lake Mich-
igan resort area. He also pre-
pared to mobilize all able bodied
men to fight any blazes that might
break out in that region.
Only in the extreme western,
edge of the Upper Peninsula were
Friday's rains of sufficient volume
to abate the peril which the con-
servation department listed as a;
"maximum hazard.",
At Ottawa national forest in
that area five pumps and 30,000'
feet of hose were sent by airplane;
to Maine to aid New England
forest fire fighters.

Gophers Take Early Lead; White,
Dworsky, Ford Defensive Stars
Up front where the 1947 chapter of the "Little Brown Jug" rivalry
took place, Michigan and Minnesota played to a Mexican standoff,
but Wolverine backfield speed provided the 13-6 victory margin at
the University of Michigan Stadium yesterday in a "rock-'em-sock-
'em" brawl that had 87,000 fans on the brink of hysteria.
The Golden Gophers halted the heretofore unstopped Michigan
offense by the simple process of getting hold of the ball and keeping
it. In the first half Crisler's charges had the ball for only 19
plays as a typical Bierman machine ground out nine first downs, most
of them by the slow slogging over-

Lloyd House, Alpha Xi Delta
Best inHomecomingContest

With 92 student houses tramp-
ling aside Michigan's football op-
position in one way or another,
Lloyd House of the West Quad-
rangle and Alpha Xi Delta sorority
were acclaimed the best tramp-
lers of all in the Homecoming dis-
play contest yesterday.
Alpha Xi displayed a circus fea-
turing a Chappuis-led aerial act
and a very fat Madame Ua Rosa
Bowla. Lloyd House parodied the
"Man of Distinction" with Coach
Crisler, Dean Alice Lloyd and An-
drei Vishinsky playing parts.
Second Prize
Se cond prize in the men's com-
petition was won by Lambda Chi
Alpha's Rose Bowl train, while
Craigly League House's huge bowl
of roses won second in the wo-
men's competition. Delta Upsilon's
Punch and Judy show won first
honorable mention among the
men. Sigma Nu's gopher roasting
baker, Fletcher Hall's circus ring
and Trigon's noisy cruiser fol-
lowed up.
Collegiate Sorosis also featured
roses to win first honorable men-
tion in the women's competition.
Kappa Kappa Gamma had an un-
derwater scene good for the next
place, and Mosher's giant "still"
and Zeta Tau Alpha's display won
the remaining prizes.
'Best Ever'
The displays were the best ever,
according to Ethel A. McCormick,
social director of the League, who
was one of the judges. The other
judges were Arthur Weddige of the
art school, and Barbara Blum '45,
Originality, execution, scale and
clarity of color were the main
bases for judgment of the displays,
according to Weddige. He added
that it was very difficult to pick
out the top two from the ninety-
two entrants.
Signs Displayed
Another display attracted the
eyes of motorists coming into Ann
Arbor, via Washtenaw who view-
ed signs placed along the road

miles," "Volstead Vista, one mile;"

But Michigan's weakness of a
week ago was its strength today-
the line backing. Pan Dworsky, a
defensive goat against North-
western, was All-American yester-
day. He plugged openings in the
center of the line, smashed down
ball carriers attempting to circle
the ends. He was ably assisted by
long lean J. T. White, who came
up with the play that broke the
Gopher's back.
With the score 13-6 in the
final period, and the Gophers
on the march in possession of
the ball on Michigan's 34 yard
line, Faunce faded and flipped
a pass over center. J. T. White
leaped and speared it, then run-

See Gridiron Classic
Football fever'reached its height
here yesterday as some 86,000
gridiron fans saw the Wolverines
nose out Minnesota under a swel-
tering Indian Summer sun.
The first sell-out throng of the
season, filling every nook and
cranny of the huge bowl, rose to
its feet on virtually every play of
yesterday's action-packed gridiron
clash. The Gopher contingent, 4,-
500 strong, kept the east side of
the stadium in an uproar, as the
Minnesota gridiron squad made its
bids for victory.
Jug Appeared
The famed "Little Brown Jug"
made its first public appearance
at the Gopher-Wolverine tilt. The
jug reposed on the sidelines during
the game, and at half time former

Half-a-dozen special trains

Impromptu Cheerleader
At least one well-oiled Univer-
sity alumni staged an impromptu
