Hardworking University stu-

quired 2.4 level. Under a recent
University regulation, the 12
groups will be placed on warning
for a year.
The ruling, stemming from a
recommendation made by the
Inter-fraternity Alumni Council
in 1945, stipulates that any
group whose grade-point aver-
age falls below 2.4 will automa-
tically be placed on warning for
If they fail to bring their aver-

affected this year have been on

University coeds again topped
their male counterparts on
campus in the scholastic ra-

all men and women undergradu-

pointed out that men, with lower
grade averages, outnumber wo-

Recording the highest group
average in the history of the
University, women's cooperative
housing units achieved an aver-

Winchell House led the men's

Wolverines Grab Third in Big Ten
As Illinois Drops from Lead Position
(Special to The Daily)
CHAMPAIGN, Ill.-Michigan vaulted back into its familiar role
of Western Conference title favorites yesterday as they effectively
squelched a fighting Illinois team here 13-0.
A capacity crowd of 71,119 here to pay homage to 70 year old
Bob Zuppke, Illinois' great ex-coach and a host of former Illini
immortals on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the dedication
of Illinois Memorial Stadium saw the Wolverines strike 51 yards
through the air in the second period and drive over from the one foot
line in the final quarter to throw a wet blanket on the Rose Bowl
fires which had begun to glimmer in the surprising Indians' eyes.
THE WOLVERINE victory coupled with Minnesota's surprising
loss to Purdue assured Michigan of an opportunity to become the
first team in Western Conference history to capture three straight
undisputed Conference championships.
Illinois was away "up" for this one as they pranced through
their paces under the watchful eyes of Zuppke and the revered

the Illini gridders. Unfortunate-
ly for the Indians, however,
Grange was on the sidelines yes-
terday and there wasn't a rea-
sonable facsimile of the Gallop-
ing Ghost on the field.
The Indians fielded a great back
in the person of Johnny Karras
who was everything he was cracked
up to be, but he had neither the
speed nor the blocking that
Grange possessed when he raced
through the supposedly great
Michigan team for four touch-
downs on. five ball carrying at-
tempts just a quarter of a century

Quad Council
Against Push
The West Quad Council last
night declared itself opposed to
bloc voting and announced it
would not "push" West Quad can-
didates as such, but at the same
time reserved the privilege of "in-
forming residents of those candi-
dates who live in the Quad."
"The Council feels its primary
concern in the coming elections is
to get out the vote," Al Haffner,
chairman of the Council's Cam-
pus Action Committee, -said in an
official statement.
"IF THIS AT'ITUDE prevails
on campus, SL will be truly rep-
resentative of campus opinion," he
To "get out the vote," the
Council will hold an election
rally to which all candidates on
campus will be invited, Haffner
"Free electioneering will prevail
in the Quad as a unit," he con-

"THE COUNCILS of the indi-
vidual houses, however, reserve
the right to formulate their pol-

their groups," Haffner added.
He said the West Quad Coun-
cil "will not attempt to limit
the number of candidates for
the purpose of strength."
Haffner said the Council "feels
it is its duty" to inform residents
of those candidates who live in
the Quad.
HOWEVER, he added, the Coun-
cil "does not intend to push can-
didates simply because they do live
in the Quad. They should be
elected on their own merits, and
therefore will be expected to in-
itiate and conduct their own cam-

Truman Cuts A ir Force Groups to 48

Truman overrode Congress yes-
terday on the hotly-debated 58-
group air force issue.
He signed a $15,585,863,498 mili-
tary appropriation-the biggest in
peacetime history-but in doing
so he ordered the Secretary of De-
fense to impound $615,000.000 that
the lawmakers had voted to build
up the air force to 58 groups.
* * *
for a 48-group force and that is!

about what he'll now get. The air
force will acquire about 1,400 new
planes instead of 1,800.
In forbidding the proposed ex-
pansion of the air arm, the Presi-
dent said in effect that it isn't
only the original cost but the
upkeep-more men to man the
planes, more operating costs,
more replacement expense; all
in all "greatly increased" future
Furthermore, he declared, to

give the air force more than pro-
vided in his budget would be "in-
consistent with a realistic and bal-
anced security program which we
can support in peacetime."
THE $15,585,863,498 appropria-
tion represents more than $100 for
each man, woman and child in
the United States. It is far more
than one-third of the entire fed-
eral budget.
Heads of the House and Senate
Appropriations Committees did not
question the validity of the Presi-
dent's action.

released from prison. Later this
was corrected to say that a ma-
jority of the priests had been free
during "legal proceedings" against
Presumably, this meant thatz
most of them had not actually
been imprisoned.
The government's first state-
ment said the priests had opposed
the new control law because of
"pressure from the church hier-
archy" but that in prison they
had "proclaimed they wanted to
change their attitude, were sorry
for their acts and promised loyalty
to the Czechoslovak Republic and
asked the President for amnesty."
Church sources have re-
ported that 300 priests under ar-
rest for voluntarily opposing the
laws passed Oct. 14, which give a
government ministry control of
church finances, salaries, person-
nel and administration.

Truman's point four plan to de-
velop backward countries is a
means of encouraging opportun-
ities for U.S. investments in for-
eign countries, William R. Hunt-
ington said yesterday.
Huntington, a member of the
American Friends Service Com-
mittee on U.S.-Soviet relations,
opened a two days conference on
the. "United States and Her World
Responsibilities" at Lane Hall.
Five To Seek Post
Five students have petitioned
for one position on the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athle-
tics, SL elections chairman Bill
Clark has announced.
They are: Jim Loprete, Cal Kly-
man and Neil Celley. Two others
were nominated by the Student
Manager's Club: Jim Mitchell and
John Powers.

"WE MUST THINK of our eco-
nomic position as something toI
share with the world, not justI
something that belongs to us," he
"Our major responsibility to-
day is to work toward the de-
velopment ofka world govern-
ment, an outgrowth of the Unit-
ed Nations.
Huntington pointed out that in-
dividuals must develop a sense of
responsibility for the world
Ferguson, political science instruc-
tor at Michigan State College, de-
clared that the complacency of
college students is a major polit-
ical problem.j
Huntington will conclude the
conference with an address on
American Soviet Relations at 9:15
today at Lane Hall.

But some Republican lawmakers
were critical.
THE BIG MONEY bill provides
the following sums:
Army: $4,380,644,298 cash.
Navy: $4,285,382,200 cash and
$643,546,000 contract authority.
Air Force: $4,088,386,000 cash
and $1,992,755,000 contract au-
Other military operations: $195,-
150,000 cash. These operations in-
clude financing the office of the
Secretary of Defense, the National
Security Council and the National
Security Resources Board.
In deciding to "place in re-
serve" the extra money for the
Air Force, Truman ran counter
to the expressed wishes of the
House rather than the Senate. A
majority of the Senators strongly
supported his 48-group program.

KARRAS, leading ground gainer
in the Big Ten, picked up 122
yards on 23 carries, but Illinois

were expected to show after last
week's monumental battle with
Fumbles (5 of them) slowed
the Wolverine offensive machine
but the Wolverines were con-
stantly threatening the Illinois
goal line as they picked up a net

additional 145 yards on the
strength of their revived passing
They drove to the 12-yard line
in the first quarter before a fourth
down fumble halted them and
they had a first down on the Illini
eight when the gun sounded to
end the first half. They were on
the Indians 10 in the third quarter
when a holding penalty cut short
another drive and they drove to
the 29 shortly before their pass-
ing attack bogged down.

High Spirits
keynote 'M,'
(Special to The Daily)
CHAMPAIGN-The Wolverine's
new found spirit which shook the
Michigan Stadium last week was
continued at this important Big
Ten encounter in Champaign.
It was a sunny cloudless day
as more than five thousand Mich-
igan students and alumni swarmed
over the Illinois campus, cruising
the streets in cars wrapped in
maize and blue, and gathering on
street corners to sing "The Vic-
ILLINOIS, TOO, was in high
spirits. Celebrating "Zuppke Day"
in honor of its greatest coach, the
Illini had erected displays at many
fraternities and sororities.
At half time, Lou Boudreau,
Cleveland baseball manager and
galloping ghost Red Grange pre-
sented Zuppke with a television
set from the Illini club.

THE WORDS "Zupp and Hurry
Up Yost" welcomed back Coach
Zuppke and a galloping ghost rep-
resented Red Grange. In honor
of the Wolverines, an inverted M
was ordered, followed quickly with
the word "Oops," and a proper
block M.
Michigan's marching band
took the field and presented the
South Pacific maneuvers it in-
troduced last week. The Illini
roared in approval and the Illi-
nois band marched on led by an
Indian dancer.
There was some intimation that
Michigan's fans weren't entirely
concentrated on the game, how-
ever, the section roaring several
times with a cry of "Purdue beat
Minnesota" as the score from Min-
neapolis was announced.
