Wisconsin Whitewashes Minnesota
While Wolverines Top Buckeyes
Special to The Daily
COLUMBUS - Michigan's baseball forces inscribed their third
straight Western Conference tie in the books here yesterday afternoon
when they romped to a 7-3 victory over Ohio State.
The victory gave the Wolverines, rated a darkhorse contender
earlier in the season, a record of nine victories and three defeats and
enabled them to tie with Wisconsin for the loop leadership. Wisconsin
blanked Minnesota, 2-0, yesterday.
THE WOLVERINES combined some potent long ball hitting
with effective clutch hurling to topple the Buckeyes for the second
straight day.

Lesinski Dies
In Dearborn
By The Associated Press
Rep. John Lesinski (D-Mich.)
died unexpectedly of a heart at-
tack at his Dearborn home yester-
day at the age of 65.
Chairman of the powerful edu-
cation and labor committee of the
House, Rep. Lesinski had come
home only Friday for the Me-
morial Day recess of Congress. He
had represented the 16th Michigan
Congressional District since its
creation in 1933.
The death of Rep. Lesinski is
expected to place a southern sup-
porter of the Taft-Hartley law at
the head of the powerful House
labor committee.
Under the time-honored custom
of observing seniority in filling
committee chairmanships, Rep.
Graham Barden (D-N.C.) is in line
for Lesinski's influential post as
the ranking Democratic member
of the committee.

In 'U' Fund Cut
Special to The Daily
YPSILANTI -Gov. G. Mennen
Williams delivered a stinging blast
at the Republican-motivated
"economy" budget recently passed
by the Legislature as he formally
announced his candidacy for re-
election here last night.
Terming the budget as passed a
"fake economy," he saw the Uni-
versity appropriation cut as "the
first step towards reducing the
school from a first to a second
class institution."
* * *
WILLIAMS spoke before an es-
timated 400 people at the Washte-
naw County Democratic Dinner in
Charles McKenny Hall.
"The appropriation cut to the
University will hurt the teachers
first, but will eventually hurt
the students, because teachers
cannot take this treatment for
long and will not stay with it,"
he asserted.
The extreme seriousness. of the
situation is affirmed by the un-
precedented action of President
Ruthven protesting the cut, he
pointed out.
"The slicing of the medical
school appropriations is especially
indefensible, for although more
doctors are desperately needed in
Michigan, there are no funds avail-
able to make the schools adequate,"
he said.

WILLIAMS branded the meth-
ods used in passing the cut budget
bill by the Republican-dominated
Legislature as "a mockery of de-
"TAere are no actual savings

lip-service to the job of passing a
budget. It is really gold-bricking,
because adequate appropriations
are only being put off," he assert-
All the state's social work, pri-
marily that pertaining to chil-
dren, is hampered seriously by
the cut budget, he said. In this
respect, Williams declared, the
cut is "inhuman" because all
sorts of essential institutions
such as old people's homes, aid
to mentally ill, and homes for
underprivileged children have
received crippling fund reduc-
Williams also lashed out at the
Republicans for evading a corpora-
tion excess profits tax.
Preceding Williams' address,

denounced members of the House

undue secrecy and lack of cooper-
ation during the passage of the
budget. The Committee is 'com-

'U' Faculty Evaluation
Gets Varied Reactions

The faculty evaluation program
met with a wide variety of student
and faculty reactions last week.
All students queried expressed
their approval of the plan, but
they disagreed on the value of the
criticism forms which were used.
THE FACULTY, too, was gener-

idea. As one sociology instructor
put it, "It makes us sit up and
take notice of our methods."
