The fund drive to send the
famed Michigan Marching Band
went over the top today!
Student pledges totaled $2,157
as The Daily went to press early
this morning. This is more than
enough to send the band to OSU
next weekend.

Prof. William D. Revelli
promises that the band will put
on a show worthy of the hun-
dreds of persons who have con-
tributed financially to make the
trip possible.
The drive, which started as a
result of a letter from members
of Lambda Chi Alpha pledging
$65, quickly snowballed until vir-
tually every campus organization
had climbed on the "Bandwagon".
MESSAGES pledging support
and financial aid came from scores
of local merchants and towns-
people too.
Much of the impetus for the
spontaneous drive came as a
result of an article appearing
in Life Magazine which made

Flattens Hoosiers
For 22nd Straight
Taliaferro, Foe's Triple-Threat Ace
Displays Top Form in Losing Cause
Associate Sports Editor
With the cool, relentless precision that has established it the na-
tion's greatest, Michigan's masterful gridiron machine started rolling
the first time it got the ball yesterday and didn't stop until it had
ground out a crushing 54-0 victory over Indiana's hapless Hoosiers.
Gaining momentum as the afternoon wore on, the Wolverines
scored once, in the first quarter, twice each in the second and third
stanzas and three times in the final period to administer the worst
defeat the Red and White had suffered since 1925.

PERFORMING WITH the brilliance of a true champion the Maize
and Blue assured themselves of at least a tie for the Big Nine title

Clearing the bench of his entire squad in the second half,
Coach Ben Oosterbaan made certain that everyone got into the
act, and it was the third anxd fourth stringers who pushed across
the final scores against the rapidly tiring Hoosiers.
Superlative both in the air and on the ground, the Wolverines
rolled up a total net gain of 430 yards, their greatest team performance
of the season.

PARADOXICALLY, it was an Indiana back, George Taliaferro,
who was unquestionably the finest all-around performer on the field.
The triple threat marvel from Gary, Ind. put on a one man show for
the Hoosiers and single handedly sparked their only sustained drive
of the afternoon.
His passing, running and kicking were a thrill to behold, and
when he left the field with an iinjured leg early In the third ieridd

I'M GONNA DO IT-Dick Kempthorn (38) Wolverine fullback shows his tongue to a white-shirted Hoosier defender who cannot get to him in time to stop the husky
Wolverine from plunging over for one of Michigan's eight touchdowns. Dick Rifenburg (89) detains another Indianan while a third seems to be more interested in rolling
on the soft turf than in stopping the hard-hitting Kempthorn. The touchdown was the first of the year for Kmpthorn who has been used in a defensive role for the greater
part of the season.

Two New Departments
Authorized by Regents

The Board of Regents yesterday
authorized the literary college to
set up two new departments- a
Department of Far Eastern Lan-
guages and Literature, and a De-
partment of Near Eastern Studies.
They will replace the Oriental
languages department, and will
be headed by Prof. Joseph K. Ya-
magiwa and Prof. George C.
Cameron respectively.
The Far Eastern languages de-
partment will work in close coop-
eration with the program in Far
Eastern Civilization. It will offer
courses in Chinese, Japanese, Ma-
layan and other Far Eastern lan-

A major function of the De-
partment of Near Eastern Studies
will be to interpret Hebrew and
Moslem culture to students. Of-
ferings of the department will in-
clude Semitic languages and lit-
eratures, and the older Near East-
ern languages.
Prof. Cameron, who is head of
the department, will return to the
campus in February from Iran,
where he is now in charge of an
archaeological expedition spon-
sored by the University and by the
American Schools of Oriental Re-
The Board accepted gifts total-
ing $29,623.10.

Congress' New Year's

far back as last August 7 to hold
its final meeting December 31. The
81st Congress, with Democratic
instead of Republican majorities
in each house, meets January 3.
THE YEAR-END session grew
out of the prolonged political com-
bat between President ruman
and the Republican leaders of the
now expiring Congress.
So they provided the definite
December 31 meeting date, and
also reserved to Republican lead-
ers in the House and Senate the
power to call the lawmakers
back ahead of that time without
a presidential summons.
The carefully-laid plan doesn't
seem to have much point now in
view of the sweeping Democratic
victories in the Nov. 2 election.
A DEMOCRAT, Senator McMa-
hon of Connecticut, suggested jo-
cularly that it will give departing
Republicans a chance to say:
"Happy New Year, Harry."

85,000 sensed that the Maize and
Blue were headed for a big after-
noon when 'the first time they got
their hands on the ball they scored
on a 45 yard march that took only
seven plays.
Tom Peterson went over on
the tricky fake-shift play on a
plunge from the one yard mark-
er. Harry Allis' first of six suc-
cessful conversion gave Michi-
gan an early 7-0 lead.
Number two didn't come until
early in the second quarter after
the Hoosiers had put on a sus-
tained drive of their own only to
be stopped by the alert Wolverine
line on the seven. ..

THIS TIME it was Dick Kemp-
thorn, getting his first real op-
portunity this year as an offen-
sive fullback, smashing over from
the two. The kick made it 14-0.
A break gave the Wolverines
their third score. A Hoosier fum-
ble on their own 39 was recov-
ered by Quent Sickles and the

seven plays and scored on a pass

good for 13 yards. The kick
made the halftime score 21-0.
Michigan scored again from the
opening kickoff of the second half.
From their own 42 they marched
in nine plays to scores on a right
tackle smash by Ortmann. Allis
missed the try for extra point to
break his perfect streak at 14.
JUST AS THE third stanza end-
ed the Maize and Blue marched
again and tallied on a pass from
