EAST LANSING, Mich.-()--
Michigan State College announced
it has expelled three students and
placed seven others on probation
in a move to stamp out gambling

Word of the action came from
Lewiston, Pa., where MSC Presi-

Students Stanley Crowe issued a
joint statement. They were in the
eastern city for Michigan State's
football game with Penn State.

-juniors Michael Asadourian,
23, of Highland Park and James
J. Robideau, 23, of Monroe, and
sophomore Michael P. Kolian,
22, of Detroit.
"We don't want any more of
this," President Hanna said. "The
punishment is hard, but it is the
only way to control a situation
that might have become danger-

The three expelled students

Dean Crowe said.
There was no comment on the
action from the students involved,
nor was it known whether they
left the campus immediately.

dents placed on probation would
not be named, explaining that

Pressure is being brought to bear
on University Regents to alter
their policy of carrying on business
Two of the largest newspapers
in the state this week carried ar-

from unorthodox handling of news
releases concerning /the Workers'
Education Service and the firing
of its director.

IMMEDIATELY after the Re-

announced that the WES would b

revealed that the WES was being

canned in the process.
The Regents were taken to
task for withholding this news
by W. K. Kelsey, noted column-
ist writing in The Detroit News
An article by Owen C. Deatrick
appearing in the Detroit Free
Press today points out that both
the University Regents and the
State Board of Education, which
runs Michigan State College, an-
nually transact some $50,000 worth
of public business behind closed
KELSEY CHARGED that the
Regents, although elected by the
people, does not consider itself
sufficiently responsible to the peo-
ple to explain its acts.
"Too frequently the Board of
Regents does not take the people
into its confidence. Therefore
they get conflicting reports of
the reasons for its acts and ex-
planations that do not explain,"
In the Detroit Free Press news
story Deatrick said other elected
officials operate under a magnify-
ing glass and in practically a
"goldfish bowl" while the officials
who run Michigan's big state col-
lege lock themselves in and make
their decisions without any prying
eyes or pointed questions.
Deatrick says that the Regents
alone have custody of some $30,-
000 of the public money which is
subject to closed door decisions.
Little Red Resistance
PARIS, Oct. 23-Troops in full
battle array yeized seven of
France's largest coal mines from
Ccmmunist-led strikers, meeting
only slight resistance.
Under government orders to
shoot if necessary, the troops en-
countered no renewal of violence
such as has taken the lives of two
persons and caused injury to 200
in the last three days.
There were a few fist fights at
Montceau - Les - Mines, however,
and in eastern France near For-
bach strikers in a cafe hurled ta-
bles and chairs when police and
troops broke up their meeting.
Near Metz, a bus-load of work-
ers defying the strike was beset by
strikers hurling stones. Four of
the workers were cut by flying
glass but no serious injuries were
reported in these incidents.

I.Probe of Committee .Payroll
Called'Politics' by Thomas
WASHINGTON-(/P)-Rep. J. Parnell Thomas (Rep., N.J.) ac-
cused the Justice Department of "despicable" political action in hav-
ing a Federal Grand Jury check now on his office payroll records.
Thomas, Chairman of the House Committee on Un-American
Activities, said he welcomes a federal investigation.

BUT FOR IT to be started on the eve of an election, he added,
"is despicable and revolting, not only to the citizens of my district
but to every patriotic citizens of the United States."
Columnist Drew Pearson first made the allegations against
Thomas and subsequently a
group of 17 lawyers from the
Congressman's home district
petitioned the Justice Depart-
ment for an investigation.
It was disclosed by officials of
the department last night that
results of an FBI inquiry into the
situation had been presented to a
regular grand jury meeting in the
District of Columbia. Some mem-
bers of Thomas' office staff also
appeared before the Grand Jury

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn-Michigan is returning to Ann Arbor to-
day with the little Brown Jug safely tucked away and with a clear path
to their second successive Big Nine title.
The Wolverines passed Minnesota dizzy this afternoon as they
ran their victory streak to 19 straight with a resounding 27-14 victory
over the Golden Gophers.
* * * *
PLAYING BEFORE a record crowd of 65,130, the largest ever to
see a football game here in Minneapolis, the Gophers did their best to
send Michigan down to defeat. They tallied first on a recovery of a
fumbled punt and then at the start of the second half they marched 67
yards to score and wrest the lead away from the Wolverines.
But Michigan was not to be denied. It came roaring back in
four plays after the kickoff and regained the lead never to re-
Chuck Ortmann passed four times and completed three as the
Wolverines marched 77 for the game-clinching marker. The threw a 19
yard aerial to Harry Allis, then a 20 yard pass to Dick Rifenberg.
* * * *
THE NEXT HEAVE was incomplete, but the chucking Sophomore
hurled another into all-American Dick Rifenburg's arms and the big
end was on his way. He dropped the ball right after the catch, but
caught it on the bounce and went across the line without a hand be-
ing laid on him.
The first half was a battle of breaks as both the Gophers
and Wolverines turned two breaks into touchdowns. The Gophers
drew first blood as Harry Elliott punted from his 26 yard line to
Gene Derricotte on Michigan's 10. Derricotte couldn't find the
handle and fumbled the ball into the end zone.
Leo Nomellini, who played an amazing game for Minnesota
pounced on it and the Gophers led 6-0. Gordy Soltau made it 7-0
with his perfect placement.
* * * *
THEN THE WOLVERINES struck back with a vengeance. They
exchanged two punts and then Minnesota was penalized 15 yards for
unnecessary roughness giving Michigan a first down on the Gopher 44.
Ortmann passed to Koceski who lateraled to Joe Soboleski as
the Wolverines began to move. This one took Michigan to the 21
and then Ortmann went around the weak side end all the way
to the 6-yard stripe. But the Golden opportunity went for naught
as Tom Peterson fumbled on fourth down and the Gophers took
But a few moments later the Wolverines again were hammering
on the door. Ortmann returned Elliott's kick to Minnesota's 39.
And Peterson got off a beautiful pass to Rifenburg on the 14.
*' * * *
THE SHIFTY fullback then carried the ball all the way through
to the 2 and Michigan was on the march. They were put back to the 7
on an off-side penalty and two passes were incomplete.
On fourth down, Teninga faded to his right and threw
a beautiful criss-cross pass to Peterson standing in the end zone
for the first tally. Allis' kick was good and it was all tied up.
This came with two-and-a-half minutes left in the half and 90
seconds later the Wolverines had scored again.
THE GOPHERS FAILED to gain enough for a first down in three
line bucks and Elliott dropped back to kick. The Michigan line, which

had been treating the mighty Gopher forward wall like a sieve
swarmed through. Ed McNeil succeeded in blocking the kick and
Quent Sickles fell on the ball on the6-inch line. Peterson bulled his
way over and though Allis' kick was wide, Michigan led 13-7.
The Gophers filled the air with footballs in the remaining
seconds, but their bid fell short and the half ended.
The Wolverines added an insurance tally in the final quarter as
Ortmann again uncorked beautiful pass after pass. This one was the
most spectacular of the day as the two great sophomores collaborated
on Michigan's longest touchdown run of the season.
ORTMANN STOOD ON his own 38 and hit Leo Koceski on the
midfield stripe and the fleet wingback scampered on down the side-
line for Michigan's fourth touchdown. Allis converted for the point.
Minnesota tried valiantly to get back in the ball-game as Faunce
and Dick Lawrence filled the skies with footballs, but there was no
stopping the Wolverines.
