Pitchers Set
Pace as Nine

Bill Taft stepped out on the
mound yesterday with the right
idea in mind and proceeded to set
the tempo for his chucking sue-
cessors as he held the first nine
University of Detroit batters to
nary a bingle.
Michigan won, 3-0, Taft get-
ting credit for the win, his first
of the season.
Bob Hicks and John Olsen,
who shared the pitching chores
with Taft, each gave up a single
base knock to the visitors from
the Motor City.
Detroit's only scoring opportun-
ity was quickly snuffed out in the
fourth inning on a play at the
plate. Herb Boldt, Detroit short-
stop, opened the stanza with a
looping double along the right
field line.
Boldt took third while Bob
Gorman was being thrown out
at first by Dom Tomasi, and
Bob Prendergast, who played
the keystone sack, strolled after
Hicks worked for a full count.
Brakie Orr then slammed one
and nothing pitch back at Hicks
who quickly threw to the plate.
Boldt held up halfway home but
was caught in a run-down by Ted
Michigan scored its first talty
in the second on a 380 foot
triple to right center by lefty
Hal Morrill, which sent Bob
Chappuis scampering home
from first.
The Wolverines put together
two hits in the fifth for their next
run. With two away, Hicks
pumped a double into right cen-
ter, and Bump Elliott slammed a
hot grounder just inside the first
base sack, scoring Hicks.
Michigan's last run, which came
in the eighth, was unearned. Ted
Berce batted for Jack Weisenbur-
ger and drew a base on balls after
there was one down.

For U.S. Law
"In viewing the broad sweep of
Anglo-American legal history, it is
surprising to note how much of
the growth of the law revolves
around individuals," Chief Jus-
tice Arthur T. Vanderbilt of the
New Jersey Supreme Court said in
yesterday's Cook Lecture.
No judge has ever made any
greater contribution to our law
and its moral level than the 18th
century English judge, Lord
Mansfield, Justice Vanderbilt as-
Yesterday's lecture, part of the
series "Men and Measures in the
Law" dealt with a resume of the
life of Lord Mansfield and an out-
line of his contributions to the
English legal system.
"The maxim Let justice be done
though the heavens fall,' which is
attributed to Lord Mansfield, ex-
presses his aim as a judge," Jus-
tice Vanderbilt said.
The Cook Lecture series will be
concluded with talks by Justice
Vanderbilt at 4:15 p.m. today and

Part of ,Jaffa
Is Captured,
Jews Claim
Irgun To Continue
Push in Arab City
JERUSA\LEM, April 28-A)-
Irgun Zvai Leumi claimed cap-
ture of the Manshieh quarter of
Jaffa tonight and sped troops and
equipment to the front to main-
tain the battering thrust of its
drive into the all Arab city.
Before nightfall the Jewish un-

Manshieh quarter's Hassan Beq
Mosque. Manshieh sticks out like
a mile-long thumb into the no
man's land separating Jaffa from

Irgun troops and equipment
convoys were seen mving out of
Tel Aviv tonight into the no man's
land. A high Irgun commander
said the assault on Jaffa would
2ontinue despite British warnings.
Irgun was aided in its Manshieh
drive today by Haganah, the reg-
ular Jewish militia, which staged
strong pre-dawn attacks on at
least four suburbs in an Arab de-
fense arc east and southeast of
Jaffa. A Haganah spokesman
aid, however, that although the
attacks were complementary, they
had not been intended that way.
He said the new Irgun-Haganah
military accord was not applicable
to this phase of Irgun's battle for

To0 Get New
Interviews Arranged
To(ay at Tappan Hall
The newly created Bureau of
Student Opinion is operating on
all cylinders again, after being
slowed down by the inclement
downpours Tuesday.
The bureau urges all people who
did not appear for their scheduled
interviews Tuesday to report be-
tween 1:30 and 5:30 p.m. today
to Rm. 5 Tappan Hall and re-
schedule an appointment.
Random Selection
A goal of 500 interviews, select-
ed on the basis of a system of
random numbers from University
files, has been set.
Postcards bearing a specified
time for an interview have already
been mailed to about 300 poten-
tial respondents, and the remain-
ing cards will soon be in the mail.
Bureau workers estimated last
night that more than 100 people
had completed answering the ten-
minute questionnaire covering
such issues as Daily policy, politi-
cal meetings on campus, social life
and eating facilities.
Sample Questions
"It has been stated that as a
part ofthe educational process,
student interest in public issues
and discussion of them should be
encouraged. What do you think
the University would do to en-
courage this process?"
Some forty people take part in
the bureau's polling-The Daily,
the Union and Alpha Phi Omega
furnishing most of the help.

The newly elected Student Leg-1

squarely behind a measure to lift
the tennis court fees last night,
as they took over their duties as

In a motion introduced by ar-,
sity Committee chairman Bob

mediate lifting of the fees anda
suggested that revenue for main-
tenance of athletic equipment for

tennis, come from charging small
fees for spectator sports, such as
basketball and baseball.
The motion was passed by 19.
Football Programs
The Legislature also voted to
ask reduction of the price of foot-
ball programs to 25 cents. The
unanimously passed measure also
stated that "We believe that this
can be accomplished by an exten-

cutting the quality of the pro-

The Maternity Hospital has
