PRICE FIVE CENTS
Top Indiana, 54-47
With 23 Hits
By SY SONKIN
(Special to The Daily)
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Mich-
igan's rapidly improving cage
squad extended their Conference
winning streak to five games last
night as they dropped an unim-
pressive Indiana quintet, 54-47, to
stay in third place in Big Nine
The Wolverines lead was never
less than' the final seven-point
difference, as they dumped in
eight quick points before the
Hoosiers were able to swish a free
throw in the opening minutes.

MACK SUPRUNOWICZ, after
his cold night against Wisconsin
in Ann Arbor last week, turned on
the steam and racked up 23 points
for Michigan, The score at half-
time was 24-17 with Supe ac-
counting for 17 of the Wolverine
The first half was slow and
cautious with Michigan match-
ing its methodical offense with.
the fast break of the Hoosiers.
In the second half the party be-
gan to get rough with the sell out
crowd joining in to add vocal
support. For the major part of the
second half the fans made things
difficult for the. referees who were
literally marching the two teams
back and forth between the foul
THE GAME was held up for
five minutes when the spectators
refused to quiet down to let Bob
Harrison take a foul shot. They
showed their ire even more by
showering the floor with pennies
and it took the combined efforts
of the cheerleaders and the loud
speaker to settle things down.
Throughout most of the game
Indiana was pressing Michigan.
The Htoosiers sent their two
forwards down the floor to try
to make things difficult for
Harrison and Pete Elliott when
they took the ball out from the
Michigan's defense was func-
tioning well throughout the game,
but especially in the opening min-
utes of the game. It wasn't until
seven and a half minutes of play
had elapsed that the Hoosiers fi-
nally netted a point.
FROM THIS POINT ON with
Michigan possessing a seven' point
lead each team lust matched each
other basket for basket.
The Wolverines started to use
their controversial stall with
about four and a half minutes
left to play, but Indiana's for-
wards .were too speedy to let
either larrison or Elliott get
by them, and Michigan just
concentrated on passing the
ball back and forth.
Indiana scored eight points and
the Maize and Blue six in this last
few minutes of play.
Michigan's accuracy from the
foul line again accounted for the
margin of victory, in fact in tils
game the Wolverines were out-
shot from the field 19-15. The
Maize and Blue collected 24 points
on fouls while the Hoosiers made
However, Michigan's percentage
from the floor was slightly better
than Indiana's, the Wolverines
having a 24.2 average and the

Praise Plan for Student Contact
By CRAIG WILSON
The Regents favor attending a "Meet Your Regents" get-together
Opinions on the Student Legislature's proposed meeting ranged
from "interested" to almost unqualified support, on the part of seven
members of the eight-man board whom The Daily was able to contact
ALL THOSE CONTACTED praised the purpose of the meeting-
to bring members of the Board in closer contact with students.
Many said they were ready to accept individually if invita-
tions are sent them and all were ready to consider the meeting if
a blanket invitation is placed on their February agenda,
(Although SL has not yet made arrangements with the Univer-
sity administration for a meeting time and place, or written invita-
tions, Al Harris, chairman, Campus Action Committee, predicted that
individual invitations would be sent each Board member.)

THREE OF THE FOUR probable candidates for the two Regents'
posts to be voted on this Spring are willing to accept personal invita-
Exception was Mrs. Vera Bates, Republican incumbent fron
Grosse Pointe, who said she was "very interested" but would give
no answer until it was decided whether or not the Regents would
consider the meeting at their February session.
Mrs. Bates, who comes up for nomination at the Republican Con-
vention Saturday, said her decision "would depend on her colleagues."
ALFRED B. CONNABLE, Jr.Republican incumbent seeking re-
nomination, "would be very happy to attend."
"If the invitation is to be sent each member, I am ready to
accept now," he said.
Both Democratic nominees were not available for commienL. How-
ever, SL member Tom Walsh, author of the "Meet Your Regents" reso-
lution, said Mrs. Rosa Faulke, Detroit; and Joseph Arsulewicz, Grand
Rapids, were "committed to attending such a meeting" at the recent
Democratic state convention.
OTHER COMMENTS BY MEMBERS of the Board approved the
"Such a meeting would be very fine, if a time can be ar-
ranged," Regent Ralph A. Hayward, of Parchment, said.
J. ,Joseph Herbert, member from Manistique, called the proposal
"fine" and said he would be "happy to meet students" at a "Know
Your Regents" meeting.
REGENT KENNETH M. STEVENS, Detroit, said he had no per-
sonal objections to the meeting and commented that "something con-
structive may come out of it."
Members Otto E. Eckert, of Lansing; and Charles S. Kennedy,
of Detroit, both commented that they would be "glad to attend the

the UAW attempted to distribute union literature to the farm
equipment workers. The FE, also a CIO union, has refused to

Amidst a bevy of accusations
hurled-his way by several publica-
tions, Michigan's athletic director
H. O. (Fritz) Crisler yesterday an-
nounced a series of proposals
which would greatly expand the
athletic facilities of the Univer-
Among the plans being consid-
ered by the Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics are im-
proved facilities for both intra-
mural and intercollegiate sports.
CRISLER HAS engaged in an
exhaustive review of Michigan's
athletic facilities, with an eye to-
wards providing adequate facili-
tis for a student body that has
almost doubled in the past decade.
le pointed out that the re-
sults of the "exploratory" sur-
vey have already been presented
to the University Regents.
Among needs outlined by the
Wolverine director is a basketball
court seating approximately 15,-
000 spectators, and enlarged
hockey and ice skating facilities.
UNDER consideration is a com-
bined basketball and hockey
arena, plus the possibility of an
additional balcony in the field
house and maintaining the pres-
ent hockey rink by expanding the
north side of the building to in-
crease the spectator space.
Replacement of the present
Ferry Field baseball stands and,
a new recreational clubhouse
for the golf course were also
listed among the improvements
For women a new swimming
pool and gymnasium are urgent
A proposal for expansion of the
football stadium is also a definite
possibility, Crisler added.
* * *
CONCERNING costs he pointed
out that heretofore Wolverine
physical education and athletic
programs have been financed
without cost to the Michigan tax-
payers. In the past fifty years
only two projects have been fi-
nanced by other than funds from
" Outlining the tentative program
Crisler said: "First you consider
the desirable and entire program
-obviously impossible immed-
iately-then you consider what
part of it is now in the realm of
possibility, and the ability and
means of financing it."

Hungary asked yesterday that
the United States recall U.S. Min-
ister Selden Chapin, the U.S. State
Department said he will be order-
ed home "for consultation," and
Pope Pius XII called on Catholics
to pray for the removal of world
A Hungarian under-secretary
of state said the recall was asked
in connection with the activities
of Josef Cardinal Mindszenty, un-
der life sentence on charges of
treason, espionage and illegal
AUTHORITATIVE sources in
Budapest said, however, a diplo-
matic break between Hungary and
the U.S. is not intended.
In the midst of these exchans
Hungarian Foreign Minister Lasz-
lo Rajk accused President Tru-
man, Secretary of State Acheson
and British Foreign Secretary Be-
vin of taking part in a "war of
slander against Hungary."
Friday the State Department
ordered the expulsion of the
first secretary of the Hungar-
ian legation in retaliation for
earlier ejections from Hungary
of two secretaries at the U.S.
Pope Pius XII called on Roman
Catholics for united prayers- April
3 to remove world evils which he
said are especially bad in "those
countries where a conspiracy has
been formed against the Lord and
against his Christ."
THE VATICAN soon afterward
announced excommunication of
"all those who dared raise their
hands" against Mindszenty and
threatened the same for those
who would become involved in fu-
ture such crimes.
The Hungarian Foreign Minis-
try also suggested that the 'U.S.
legation consider removing an
American officer attached to the
American Military Attache's staff.
Ann Arbor churchmen pointed
to evidence indicating additional
Communist attacks on religion,
last night, and one expressed hope
that the U. S. would do something
Rev. S. M. Sophocles, Greek
Orthodox pastor in Ann Arbor,
urged a strong government stand,

HE TOLD of a letter received
from his uncle, the Bishop of Cy-
prus, in which the burning of
schools and monastaries by the
Communist Party were related.
"An Encyclical from Arch-
bishop Demoskinos of Greece,
reported 300 priests killed and
a number of churches burned by
the Guerrila forces in Greece,"
Rev. Sophocles said.
Rev. Henry D. Yoder, Lutheran
Pastor, pointed to the trial of
Lutheran Bishop Lajos Ordass,
"The first Hungarian churchman
to be falsely accused on black
market charges and of disloyalty
to the state."

"THE CHIEF REASON for such
persecutions has been the loyalty
manifested for the church instead
of the state. In the case of the

imprisonment was his resistance
