ed today in a statement broadcast'
from Moscow, control by the So-
viet command of all transport
from Berlin to the Western Zones'
The radio account was a dis-
patch from the official news'
agency Tass, which said the state-
ment was authorized. The Rus-
sians contended the United States,
Britain and France had violated
the Potsdam decisions by intro-
ducing a reformed currency into
This, the Tass statepent said,
forced Russia to blockade Berlin
in late June "to safeguard the in-
terests of the German population
and protect the economic life of
the Soviet zone." The Russians
contended the Western Powers
were attempting to secure control
of all Germany, including the
Eastern Zone Russia occupies.
RUSSIA maintained the three
main differences in negotiations
in July and August in the Krem
liii and in Berlin over the block-
ade were over the blockade itself,
currency and trade.

official statement apparently on.
the Berlin crisis since the nego-
tiations began, said the Soviet
Government position on the is-
sues followed this line:

"THE SOVIET Government in-
sists on the establishment of con-
trol by the Soviet Command over
transportation of commercial car-
goes and passengers by air between
Berlin and the Western Zones,
similarly to transportation by rail,
water and highway.
"Air routes cannot remain out-
side of the control, since the four
governments reached an under-
standing that an agreement should
envisage establishment of appro-
priate control over money circu-
lation in Berlin and trade between
the Berlin and Western Zones."

The roses looked a little wilted, the blue ribbons a
little tattered, but when it was all over Michigan's Wolverines
emerged a 13-7 victor over a vengeful Michigan State eleven
yesterday at East Lansing's new Macklin Field.
A spirited Spartan aggregation kept the crowd of 50,011
on its feet through much of the spine-tingling thriller as it
constantly thwarted Wolverine scoring attempts and flashed
a speedy, deceptive offense of its own.

PLAYING WITHOUT the services of their flashy tailback Gene
Derricotte for much of the contest, and minus their bone-crushing
line-backer Dick Kempthorn the Ann Arborites pushed across two
widely scattered touchdowns, in the initial and final periods to give
'hem their eleventh straight win over their arch intra-state rivals.
The first Michigan score came after only four minutes of
play had elapsed and it looked like another lop-sided victory for
the Wolverines was in the offing.
Tom Peterson, playing offensive fullback for the Maize and Blue,
cook a pass from center Bob Erban, dropped back and looped a long
aerial to end Dick Rifenberg who gathered it in on the ten and
scampered across the goal-line unhampered.

PETERSON'S CONVERSION was good and the Wolverines led
Michigan threatened to add to their point total again
late in the same period when they took over on the State 39
as a result of a bad kick by tailback George Guerre.
Derricotte passed and ran the ball'to the 25 in three plays and
then Rifenberg took the ball to the 14 on a beautifully executed end-
ON FIRST DOWN Derricotte rifled a fine jump pass to Leo
Koceski who took it on the nine and went to the two before being
With first down and goal to go on the two the Wolverines
failed on four plays to push the ball over and State took over
as the quarter ended.
THE SPARTANS seemed to have the Maize and Blue offensive
well bottled up with ends Warren Huey and Henry Mnarik cons atly
crashing through to bring down passers before they could get the
The Green and White scored its only touchdown early in the
third quarter to tie the count at seven-all.
* * . *
AFTER THE WOLVERINES had received a punt from Guerre,
on their own 15 a lateral by Peterson was intercepted by Huey who
immediately stumbled and fell.
It was MSC first and ten on the Michigan 15. Guerre picked
up three yards on a sweep around end on the opening play.
Then Lynn Chandnois tossed an aerial into the end zone that was
clearly intercepted by Wolverine Wally Teninga but by the time the
officials arrived on the scene State and Minarik was holding the
ball and the Spartans were awarded a score.
SHORTLY AFTER the next kickoff tailback Gene Derricotte,
who had been doing a whale of a job eluding State tacklers was forced
to retire to the sideline with a badly twisted knee.
At this point the State ground attack began to click and in
rapid succession ran the ball to the Wolverine 19 where Dan
Pobojowski's attempted field goal went astray.
Michigan took over on its own 25 where Ortmann's passes began
to click. In one of the nicest plays of the day the sophomore from
Milwaukee completed a beautiful pass to Irv Wisniewski which brought
the ball to the State 19 at the end of the third period.
IT WAS ORTMANN again as the final quarter opened completing
a toss to Koceski who went to the five. Peterson spun lever on the
His attempt for the extra point failed and the Wolverines

IS IT IS?-Michigan halfback Wally Teninga (on ground at right) and end Henry Minarik of MSC lie in the Michigan end zone, both clutching that elusive pigskin which
had been aimed at Mniarik by Spartan halfback Lynn Chandnois. Teninga leaned high for the ball and caught it at the same time Minarik did. In a controversial deci-
sion the ball was awarded to State giving them a touch down which temporarily tied the score. Pete Elliott (45), Michigan quarterback seems to be studying the situation
closely as Wolverine end Ed McNeill(85).appears to ques tion the official decision.

The Soviet Deputy Foreign Min-
ister told the United Nations Gen-
eral Assembly in a rapid-fire, 50-
minute speech that a group of
leaders in the Western Bloc are
mapping an atomic war against
Russia. He blasted the United
States as leading a "wild arma-
ments race" and seeking to domi-
nate the world.
The former Soviet Prosecutor
singled out Defense Secretary
James V. Forrestal in his vehement
attack against the West. He said
Forrestal is a leader in the group
of men laying "flashily colored
plans" for using the atomic bomb
to destroy such Soviet cities as
Moscow, Leningrad, Kiev, Khar-
kov and Odessa.

VISHINSKY CALLED on the
Assembly to set up "within the
framework of the Security Coun-
cil" an international control body
to carry out reduction of arma-
ments and armed forces of the
United States, Russia, Britain,
France and China.
His proposed one-third slash

Delegates immediately noted
that the phrase "within the frame-
work of the Security Council"
would give Russia a veto on the
control body's decisions. Russia
previously proposed such an ar-

Atomic Control Commission and

Olivet Dean Expels 74
More than a fourth of the student body of Olivet College have
been expelled and ordered to vacate the tiny Michigan school's cam-
pus by Monday afternoon-but they say they "are not going."
Seventy-four students, who participated in protest picketing and
wide-spread refusal to register after an Olivet professor and his wife
were fired, are resportedly holding their dormitory quarters and con-
sulting lawyers, according to Jack Vanderlind, who heads a Student
Action Committee there.
Dean James Mathias ordered the expulsion after the students re-
fused to enroll after a third deadline was set Friday.
THE STUDENTS denied an Associated Press report that Presi-
dent Aubrey L. Ashby had offered to turn the case of Prof. and Mrs.
T. Barton Akeley over to an outside group of melators if the students
Vanderlind stated that the students were "double-crossed"
and no such offer made.
He promised that the students would "stick" until such at) offer

(AP STATED that the action of Dean Mathias in expelling the
students came after they allegedly refused arbitration suggestions
made by the administration suggested.)

keep their demonstration on a family basis."
However, we welcomed consideration of the case on all campuses
and said outside support would be requested "only when it became
