University Guards Battle
100 Halloween Playboys
'Construction' Workers Foiled in Attempt
To Throw 'Blocks' into Engineering Arch
Resolutely standing by their fire hoses, undismayed by a counter-
rain of mud, four redoubtable University guardians repulsed a red-
blooded band of 100 "Halloween" pranksters who attempted to seal up
the Engineering Arch with cinder blocks early yesterday morning.
The attempted addition to the University's multi-million dollar
building program then turned into a running battle between the
would-be-construction. workers and the vigilant forces of law and
order, according to reports reaching The Daily.
"Construction" workers, who had already lost one of their
number to local police after an earlier raid failed, managed to
j throw up three tiers of cinder

London, Paris, Berlin and other
European capitals.
Since his American debut in
1937, he has enjoyed success as
soloist with the New York Phil-
harmonic, and the Symphony Or-
chestras of Cincinnati, Cleveland,

blocks before they were driven
off. Wet and besmeared, they
spotted a scout car parked up
by West Medical.
"Let's go talk to the cops,"
someone suggested. The group
started up the street.
"Go get 'em, go get 'em," en-
couraged the guards from their
When the police saw the mob
approaching, they slammed the
cruiser into gear and dashed
through the crowd, scattering ev-
erybody. After a loud volley of ver-
bal abuse by the surprised "lab-
orers," the police backed up, pull-
ed on the brake and got out.
"You guys looking for troub-

all within hearing.
Nobody moved after twominutes.
So the policemen, singled out a
man from the group and put him
into the car. An attempt was made
to pacify the officers.
"I don't want to act wise, of-
ficer, but are you really going to
put this man in jail?"
"Do you want to go with
Nobody did. Then the "labor-
ers" tried compromise; if the po-
lice would let the man loose, they
suggested, they would break it up
and go home. After some delibera-
tion, during which the officers dis-
cussed whether or not a "charged"
man might be let free, they let
him go, and everyone went home.
Ironic enough is a statement
made by the police Friday, when
asked if they expected trouble
from the campus on Halloween:
"They've never given us much
trouble in the past," one said. "I
think they're just too grown up
for that sort of thing."

A VC Checks
Food Facilities
For Students
Surveys Cost, Quality
In Local Restaurants
The second phase in AVC's sur-
vey of student eating facilities
gets under-way tomorrow when a
crew of interviewers will sample
student opinion on Ann Arbor's
food-the how good and the how
costly of eating in town.
Part one of the investigation,
just completed, looked into the
matter of eating from the man-
agement's point of view. Owners
were questioned as to food and la-
bor costs, and facilities for hand-
ling diners.
When the second phase is com-
pleted, and the results interpreted,
AVC will make a series of reconl-
mendations for easing overtaxed
facilities and high food prices.
Tentative plans call, too, for the
publishing of a guide to eating in
Ann Arbor. It will include inform-
aion on food quality, prices and
(A preliminary recommenda-
tion called on restaurants to offer
meal tickets at reduced costs to
students. The State Cafeteria and
Chandan's Cottage Inn have al-
ready complied. Meal tickets
worth $5.00 are available at both
establishments for $5.00.)
A special committee, headed by
Andrew Warhola, will use samp-
ling methods similar to those of
the Survey Research Center in
carrying out the probe.
A questionnaire, drawn up af-
ter consultation with Charles F.
Cannell and Roe Goodman of the
Center, will be employed by the
The questionnaire will seek in-
formation on the cost of eating,
and favorite eating places. Opin-
ions on cooperative dining halls
and suggestions for improving
quality, quantity, service, at re-
duced costs, will be asked as well.

It was Bump Elliott of Bloom-
ington, Ill., who spread gloom
over his home state. Late in the
first quarter he took a Dike Ed-
dleman punt on his own 26-yard
line near the west sideline. Gene
Derricotte swept over from the
other safety spot, threw a block
and the "Bumper" was off to the
races. Bob Mann and Dick Ri-
fenburg helped with key blocks
and Elliott hugged the sidelines
outrunning everyone. Jim Bries-
ke converted and Michigan led
Moments later Illinois tied it up
and the Wolverines struck again.
Beginning on their own 21 yard
line, they rolled up two first downs,
then Bob Chappuis faded, flipped
a 15-yard pass to Bump who gath-
ered it in on the Illinois 44, and
sprinted to the four yard line. A
penalty moved it back to the nine,
then little Hank Fonde, imitating
a toy bull, off the reverse ran over
tie Illinois line backers to score.
Brieske made it 14-7.
That was-the ball gamp as far
as the scoreboard was concern-
ed, but Lenny Ford and a much
maligned Michigan defensive
line continually nullified Illinois
breaks with brilliant play in the
second half. With six minutes
left to play in the ball game, Il-
linois tackle Bob Prymuski fell
on a Michigan fumble on the
Wolverine 23. Big Russ Steger,
the whole Illinois attack this af-
ternoon, blasted for four yards,
then Chick Maggioli picked up
one, then Steger again for 3 to
the 15. With fourth down and
one to go Steger hit center again
and met a stone wall. That was
the ball game as far as the Illi-
ni were concerned.
Twice before Illinois failed to
capitalize on golden scoring oppor-
tunities. On the second play of
the game, Tom Stewart intercept-
ed Bob Chappuis' pass on the Wol-
verine 45 and brought it back to
the 27. After two plays Steger
fumbled and Dan Dworsky re-
covered on the Michigan 21.

Sunless Champaign, invaded by
5,000 Michigan students and al-
umni was the victim of a many-
pronged infiltration as three spe-
cial trains and a horde of Wolver-
ine motorists poured into Mem-
orial Stadium for the Big Nine's
battle of the giants.
The student special, complete
with obsolete coach cars, joyous
old-grads, and an ex-Army kitch-
en car, converted into a short-or-
der bar, breezed into Champaign
at 12 noon Central Standard Time.

home the fact that the Wolverines
were in foreign territory in a pre-
game parade. Two of them carried
a home made banner which said,
"too bad Crisler's on the Fritz."
Two more carried a stretcher
bearing a figure with an arrow im-
bedded in its heart. Next came an
Indian carrying a tomahawk, and
last a cheer leader with a little
sign reading: "I'm glad."

were representing.

fought them off to a standstill.
