Illinois tied the score, 56-56, and
then moved ahead a few seconds

game clicking for 14 points in
each half and making 11 of his

So potent was the victors' cen-

with Illini captain Bill Erickson.
Williams, six foot seven inch re-

the second half when he sank four
of six shots. VanderKuy and Don
McIntosh each contributed nine
Michigan had one of its best
nights from the field with a 42.1
percentage while Illinois only made

Attlee Hits Reds'
For Cold War
By The Associated Press
Prime Minister Clement Attlee put full blame on Russia last
night for the continued cold war and said the Western Powers stand
ready to discuss all "outstanding issues" with the Soviets.
He was replying to Winston Churchills' plea for new high-level
talks to bridge the gulf between the East and West. Attlee made
the final broadcast speech for the Labor Party in London before
Thursday's general election.
The Prime Minister said that if Russia had accepted Western
proposals for control of atomic energy, "this cloud of fear would have
been lifted from the peoples, but Russia would not accept."
Atlee declared that the difficulty in effecting a settlement of
international friction "does not lie in the method nor in the choice

In Spy Trial
By The Associated Press
American businessman Robert A.
Vogeler calmly told a people's
court in Budapest . yesterday . he
was a professional spy and asked
for a "mild sentence."
Pleading guilty on all counts,
the 38-year-old vice president of
International Telephone and Tele-
graph Company testified he had
been instructed to obtain special
information aboutdradar, rockets,
uranium and oil deposits and to
contact experts on atomic energy
and help them escape from Hun-
"I USED MY business activities
only as cover for my espionage
work," he testified.
Vogeler's wife, awaiting the
outcome at Vienna, said, "It is
obvious to anyone who knew
Bob at all that he has been
drugged or subjected to some
kind of torture .."
Similar expressions of disbelief
in Vogeler's confession came from
U.S. State Department officials
and his business associates. Col.
Sosthenes Behn, chairman of I.T.-
&T. in New York said dates and
alleged activities mentioned in the
Vogeler confession were "at var-
iance with the known facts."

the talks in their fourth clay, say-

They told Mr. Truman so, in
an oral but official report. They
voiced belief, nevertheless, that
a "great many miners" will re-
port for duty under the instruc-

So the government stayed it
hand for the present. It can see
contempt action against the 370,-

last Monday in defiance of a Fed-
eral cour's stop-strike order. This
might end in another huge fine
