Lobby Off To
Fight UMT,
Shuns A DA
Bid To Bolt NYA
Sponsors Refuted
By BEN ZWERLING
Little dissension among student
members of the Fight UMT lobby
was evident yesterday as more
than a dozen students left for
Washington, despite warnings
that the national sponsors of the
lobby are "Comumnist-inspired"
and "insincere."
There were apparently no tak-
ers of the request issued by Ber-
nard Goodman, chairman of the
campus chapter of Americans for
Democratic Action. He had urged
that the local lobbyists bolt the
National Youth Assembly and
fight conscription with a "sin-
cere" group.
(Goodman listed, as a "sin-
cere" group the National Coun-
cil Against Conscription, large
coordinating body, which has re-
pudiated the Assembly as a Com-
munist front.)
Lobbyists Unconvinced
But the lobbyists were uncon-
vinced. They went on to Wash-
ington to take part in a national
meeting scheduled for today and
tomorrow. And they accepted the
sponsorship of the National Youth
Assembly.
Meanwhile, ADA issued a
statement to clarify its stand. Bob
Greene, a spokesman for the
phapter, declared that the group
?# doubt the integrity of
the lobbyists.
"We do not accuse any member
of the delegation of being a Coin-
munist," he said. "And we're con-
vinced that the lobbyists have
gone to Washington to fight UMT
in the way they think best. But
we cannot support this lobby be-
cause we feel that its insincere
national leadership will hinder,
rather than aid, the fight against
UMT."
ADA's "Sole Aim"
ADA's sole aim in attacking the
lobby, he said, was -to inform the
delegation of the Assembly's
makeup. "We are preparing a full
report on the matter. We hope
to point out our reasons for fight-
ing UMT through a larger, better
established organization than the
Assembly."
Max Dean, chairman of the
Wallace Progressives, added his
voice to the opposition to ADA's
stand. He said that it was "futile
to declare against UMT and then
add a 'but' as ADA has done, in
refusing to support this positive
action."
It's ironical, he added, that "the
thwarting of liberal action, like
the anti-UMT lobIby, should come
not from a conservative group, but
from an organization that calls it-
self liberal."

Gophers Upset
Cagers Top Pt
Hockey...
By HERB RUSKIN
Two goals in the final period
and two more in the following ov-
time stanza proved the margin of
difference last night as Minne-
sota's hockey squad came back to
snatch a 5-4 victory from a fight-
ing Wolverine sextet before a ca-
paciy crowd in the Coliseum.
Jerry Lindegard, second line
center for the Gophers, was the
hero of the evening, scoring both
third period goals and netting one
in the overtime session.
In winning the finale of the four
game series, Minnesota kept alive
its hopes of gaining the NCAA
playoff berth, which would have
gone to the Wolverines had they
won or tied.

18:45 of the third period, with as-
sists going to Bud Frick and Bob

Basketball . . .
By PRES HOLMES
Michigan's oscillating basket-
ball squad reached the heights
last night when they handed Pur-
due its worst defeat of the season
by drubbing the Boilermakers, 69-
56.
The outcome of the game was
in doubt for only the first five
minutes of the game, as the score
was tied at two-all and four-all,
but then the Wolverines pulled
ahead and remained in command
throughout the evening. The score
at the half was 29-23. ,
Suprunowicz Leads Scorers
Mack Suprunowicz took the
scoring honors for the night as he
found his range again and
dumped in 17 points. Capt. Bob
Harrison of Michigan and for-
ward Howard Williams of Purdue
were next in the scoring parade
with thirteen points apiece.
The Wolverines had no trouble
finding holes in the touted Boiler-
maker defense and scored more
points against them than has any
other team this season. The thir-
teen-point margin of victory was
also the largest any opponent had
managed to pile up.
This win gives Michigan a 5-2
average in Conference play, and,
coupled with Iowa's 49-47 loss to
Indiana last night, puts the Wol-
verines in second place.
Wolverines Have Good Average
The Wolverines slipped in bet-
ter than two-thirds of their foul
shots which accounted for 13
points of the final total. The
Boilermakers almost matched
Michigan's eye from the 15-foot
line making 64 per cent of their
charity tosses. Purdue had 25
chances and swished 16 counters.
Michigan made up for the defi-
cit in foul shots by hooping 28
buckets to Purdue's 20, to more
than amply decide the matter.
Suprunowicz played one of the
finest games of his career as he
made eight buckets and one free
throw to give him the high total.
He started out the game with two
long tosses from his position at
forward. When he had drawn the
defense out to him he began to
cut across in front of the hoop,

WASHINGTON, Feb. 14-Two million veterans going to scho
under the G.L Bill of Rights will get larger living allowances begi
ning April 1.
President Truman signed a bill today which raises the subsister
allowance of single veteran students from $65 a month to $75, tho
with one dependent from $90 to'$105, and those with two or mo
dependents from $90 to $120.
The new rates are estimated to cost the government an addition
$217,000,000 a year. That's an av- * *

Mitroupoulos
Will Conduct
Concert Today
A few tickets are still on sale
for the Minneapolis Symphony or-
chestra concert today at Hill Aud-
itorium, Dimitri Mitropoulos con-
ducting.
An earlier starting time, 7 p.m.,
has been set for the concert,
fourth in the University Musical
Society's Extra Concert Series.
The program will feature Moz-
art's "Jupiter" Symphony No. 41
in C major. Three other works will
be presented: Beethoven's "Len-
ore" Overture No. 3, Chausson's
Symphony in B-flat major and
Berlioz' "Damnation of Faust."
The Minneapolis Symphony Or-
chestra is celebrating its fifty-
fourth season this year, and its
twelfth under the baton of Dimi-'
tri Mitropoulos.

ences in the country.
The orchestra came to the Min-
nesota campus in 1930 through
permission of the university board
of regents under an" arrangement
which accomodated both students
and nearby residents.

By MARY STEIN
Enthusiastic support for a stu-
dent-operated radio station came
yesterday from a lecturer in the
speech department, William B.
Stegath.
Stegath, who has agreed to act
as faculty adviser of the station
for which DeanBarnard, '49, is
seeking the Student Affairs Com-
mittee's approval, backed it as a
valuable "proving ground" for
future broadcasters, as well as a
boon to student listeners.
What People Want to Hear
"The station would give stu-
dents an opportunity to find out
what the public wants to hear,
and what obstacles are encoun-
ered in producing programs," Ste-
gath declared.
A student - operated station
would benefit every University
student, Stegath further pointed
out: "It would give students a
point on the dial of their own
to turn to for purely University
news announcements, and sports
events."
The station might even be able
to broadcast "away from home"
sports events, he said. And there
would be opportunities for student
dramatic talent, both in writing
and acting.
Open to 'All Students
Stegath emphasized that work
at the station would be open to
all students, with advancement on
a strictly competitive basis. All
Book Exchangre
Closes Doors
The new Student Book Ex-
change has closed its doors for the
semester and settled down to the
task of tabulating its sales, return-
ing unsold books, and sending out
checks.
Bruce Lockwood, manager of
the exchange, said that a final
check showed that approximately
half of the original number of
books had been sold for an amount
approaching $2,800.
Students were again urged by
Lockwood to pick up their unsold
books in Rm. 306 of the Union
from 1 to 5 p.m. tomorrow,
through Wednesday. Books not
nicked up on these dates will be

students would have equal chance
to participate, whether or not
they were majoring in speech and
radio.
The station which Barnard pro-
poses would "pipe" programs
along the University heating tun-
nels to every residence hall on
campus. It would belong to the
Intercollegiate Broadcasting Sys-
tem, composed of 40-odd student
stations, and as many more trial
or affiliate ones.
Student Group
Will Observe
Day of Prayer
Dr. Herrick B. Young, secretary
of missionary personnel of the
Presbyterian Board of Foreign
Missions, will address a student
gathering at 5:45 p.m. today in
the First Methodist Church in ob-
servance of Student World Day of
Prayer.
Dr. Young's talk will be part of
the Day of Prayer program which
will begin with a student worship
service at 4 p.m. at the First Bap-
tist Church.
World Conference
At this service, Rnssell Fuller,
'48, former national president of
the Disciples Student Fellowship,
will speak on the World Confer-
ence of Christian Youth held re-
cently at Oslo, Norways The Epis-
copal student choir will also sing.
After the service, the students
will proceed to the Methodist
Church for a cost dinner at 5:15
p.m., to be followed by Dr.
Young's talk.
Contacts Everywhere
Recently returned from the Far
East, Dr. Young is a veteran trav-
eler with student contacts in
every part of the world. A former
faculty member of Alborz College,
in Iran, Dr. Young has main-
tained his associations with col-
lege students and is now a mem-
ber of several national student
committees.

Campus Club
For Democrats
Will Organize
Partisan politics will make its
bow on campus Thursday night
when a new students branch of
the Young Democrats Club meets
for an organizational meeting at
7:30 p.m. in the Union.
The group, frankly supporting
the election of President Truman,
has already set wheels in motion
to secure University recogntion.
Observers believe it to be the fore-
runner of a number of student
clubs which will actively support
candidates in the coming election.
Tom Walsh, organizer of the
group, and publicity chairman of
the Washtenaw County Democra-
tic Steering Committee, declared
that the primary goal of the club
will be to "get out the vote in the
November elections."
"The Democratic Party is faced
with a loss of votes to the 'Third
Party'," he explained. "Thus ac-
tive support of all Democrats is
necessary for victory.",
Walsh declared that the mem-
bers do not necessarily favor all
of Mr. Truman's program. "But,"
he added, "we feel that liberal
government and the best interests
of the country demand the elec-
tion of Mr. Truman and a Demo-
cratic Congress."
The Young Democrats, Walsh
said, will conduct meetings aimed
at aqquainting members with in-
formation on the issues before
Congress and the nation. "We ex-
pect to sponsor prominent speak-
ers, and to co-sponsor, with other
groups, debates on issues of the
day."
