Wolverines Seek Fourthd
By PRES HOLMES
"Here comes the old man andf
his kids again."
Almost a year ago to the day,
when Michigan defeated Indiana,
54-0, a tired and weary Hoosierf
muttered this phrase as Al Wis-f
tert led a platoon of Wolverines
onto the gridiron late in the game.
WELL, THE "old man" will be
coming at them again this after-
noon when Michigan meets In-
diana in the Stadium in the sev-
enteenth renewal of the rivalry.
Wistert, who captains the
Maize and Blue team this season
and received All-American hon-
ors last year, has been instru-
mental in leading the Wolverinesr

their two early season losses,

Ten crown for the third year in a
INDIANA is still looking for its
first Conference victory and has a
season record of one win and six
losses. Though the record is far
from impressive the Hoosiers' one
win is more than enough to cause
followers of Michigan to worry.
Indiana broke loose October
22 against a mighty Pittsburgh
eleven and downed them 48-14,1
piling up more points in that
one game than they had the
whole previous season.
The potential which Indiana
Coach Clyde Smith had known
was there all along operated with
clockwork precision that day, and
the Wolverines have been prepar-
ing themselves this week in event

Nick Sebek, the Hoosiers' stel-
lar quarterback, although he
possesses a negative 44 yards on
the ground, places fifth in the
total offense department with
438 yards. This passing finesse
of Sebek's places him second in
the passing division, less than a
hundred yards behind Don Bur-
son of Northwestern. Burson,

LAKE SUCCESS-)P-Assistant Secretary of State John D.
Hickerson yesterday told the United Nations-and the Soviet Union
especially-that countries which can level mountains in peacetime
with atomic energy also can level cities in war.
He implied that this is one of the best arguments for international
control of the atom for peaceful uses.

HICKERSON made a short reply in the special political committee
of the UN Assembly to the 90-minute speech Thursday by Soviet For-
eign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky.
The Russian delegate said the Russians are using the atom
for such peaceful jobs as moving mountains, irrigating deserts and
clearing jungles and Arctic wastes. Vishinsky was not on hand to
hear the American reply.

Governor Not Forced
To Extradite Escapee
No judicial authority can re-
view Governor G. Mennen Wil-
liams' action or order him to sur-
render custody of slayer Sam
Bearden, according to Prof. Paul
. Kauper of the Law School.
"Article four of the Constitu-
tion requires a governor to sur-
I render a person who has fled from
another state if a request is made
by the executive authority of that
state," he said.
"BUT A SUPREME Court de-
cision of 1861 states that the obli-
gation to surrender a person is not
a judicially enforceable duty,"
Prof. Kauper added.
As a practical matter, if a
governor refuses to extradite an
escaped convict his discretion
becomes the final word."
The reason most frequently giv-
en by other governors on similar
occasions was that the escaped
prisoner was being subjected to
unduly severe punishment, Prof.
"The Constitution prohibits
'cruel and unusual punishment'."

HE TOLD the committee that
while the United States had "not
attempted anything so spectacular
as mountain-moving," his coun-
try had not neglected the peace-
ful side of atomic energy.
"For example," he said, "for
some time the United States
Atomic Energy Commission has

1949 steel strike ended last night
with the signing of an Armistice
Day peace pact between the United
States Steel Corporation and the
CIO United Steelworkers.
Big Steel agreed to the Bethle-
hem pattern and the union gave
177,000 striking employes their

THE SETTLEMENT, effective
at midnight last night leaves only
138,000 strikers idle out of 513,-

support of demands for company-
paid pensions and insurance.
U.S. Steel ordered mainten-
ance men into its plants across
the nation at once. Steel will
start pouring from furnaces by
Monday or Tuesday.
Federal labor officials said in
Washington that the settlement
will return steel production to
near normal and end the crisis.
THE CONTRACT gives the co-
poration's employes $100 mini-
mum monthly pensions - includ-
ing social security - when they
reach 65 if they have 25 years ser-
