Says Russia Will Never Give Up
Land to International Commission
LAKE SUCCESS-UP)-Andrei Y. Vishinsky asserted yesterday
the Soviet Union offered two years ago to open wide its doors to
international atomic control and inspection-and the offer still stands.
The Soviet foreign minister firmly told the special political com-
mittee of the U.N. assembly, however, that Russia never would give
up one bit of its soil to ownership by any international commission.
HE SAID ALSO, in a wrap-up speech on the atomic question for
the Soviet Union, that Russian requirements for atomic energy are
"tremendous, and they are growing."
"We endeavor," he continued, "to meet these requirements
as they come up, and in endeavoring to meet these requirements,
we use our atomic energy for

Ohio State University's student
daily was shot and killed early
yesterday by a fraternity brother.
The shooting followed a cock-
tail party and dance of Delta Tau

coming, members said.

HOWARD L. BEVIS, university
president, described the slaying as
"a tragically regrettable incident.'
A "full investigation" was ordered.
The 21-year-old senior, was
shot once with a .45 caliber auto-
matic pistol on the Delta Tau

WHILE THREE detectives went
through the Delta Tau Delta
house, questioning members, the
fraternity cancelled the remainder
of its homecoming program, in-
cluding an open house for parents.
Capt. Glenn C. Hoffman, chief
of detectives, said a first degree
murder charge would be filed
against Heer Monday morning. He

West speaks of control it means

"We cannot, will not and
never shall grant to an interna-

our land," he said.
He added that if the Soviet
sovereignty is respected and there
are no abuses the Russians are
ready to accept control. The com-

said there is no reason for feeling

Vishinsky said nobody helped
the Russians discover the atomic
secret. He said it was done in
spite of a boycott by other nations.
Of 'Unfriendly Acts'
Yugoslavia yesterday junked her
treaty of friendship and alliance
with Albania, ten days after de-
livering a virtual ultimatum to her
little southern neighbor.

Soviet Russia and her eastern
European dependencies, committed

IN A NOTE handed the Alban-
ians Nov. 2, Yugoslavia sharply
told her to stop these hostile ges-
tures and to live up to the terms
of their 1947 friendship treaty. A
reply was demanded "within the
shortest possible time."
Albania ignored the demand.
It was the first time that Yugo-
slavia, badgered for months by
Russia and her Balkan followers,
has taken the initiative in scrap-
ping one of the alliances which
formerly bound them together.

EARLIER, following campaigns
of mutual abuses and accusation,
Russia, Czechoslovakia, Poland,
Hungary, and Bulgaria severed
treaty ties with Belgrade. Diplo-
matic relations, however, continue.
Yesterday's formal note - more

listed seven grievances against the
tiny Communist nation on the

For BigTen Title
By PRES HOLMES
The semi-final matches for the
Conference crown went according
to form yesterday and set the stage
for the main bout next week be-
tween Michigan and Ohio State.
Michigan defeated Indiana, 20-7,
while Ohio State slapped down an
upstart Illinois eleven, 30-17.
BOTH TEAMS had trouble con-
vincing their respective foes of
who should wind up on the long
end of the score, but in the second
half both the Wolverines and the
Buckeyes turned on the steam long
enough to score, and at the same
time save enough punch for the
big one next Saturday afternoon
here in Ann Arbor.
There was no doubt, at the
end of the Michigan game, who
had the better team, but Clyde
Smith's Hoosiers put up a stiff
and inspired battle throughoit
the entire first half as evidenced
by the 7-7 halftime score. The
steady pounding they absorbed
from the Wolverines finally took
its toll, however, and Indiana's
goal line was crossed twice in the
third quarter by Maize and Blue
Michigan operated with impres-
sive efficiency, as they piled up a
net of 367 yards, averaging four
yards per try on the ground and
6.6 through the air.
CHUCK ORTMANN spearhead-
ed the Michigan offense again yes-
terday with a net gain of 175
yards. This puts him ahead of
Illinois' sensational sophomore,
Johnny Karras, in total offense for

his performance as he completed
ten out of 19 attempts. The
most remarkable part about his
play in yesterday's game, how-

Oosterbaap inquired about Ort-

Charlie yelled, and in answer to

ironically, "It happened on the
second play again, coach," refer-
ring to his injury earlier this sea-
son against Army.

INDIANA presented Michigan
fans with a good glimpse of its
flashy sophomore, Bobby Robert-
son. He ripped off gains through
holes in the Michigan line, and
then slipped out into the second-
ary to snag Hoosier passes and
stamp himself as a man to watch
in the next two Conference sea-
Indiana's quarterback, Nick
Sebek, exhibited coolness and
poise in the backfield, and ac-
counted for all of the Hoosiers
gain through the air completing
nine out of 17 tosses for 120
yards. He also scored, Indiana's
only touchdown on a seven yard
jaunt around end.
Cliff Anderson, who was on the
receiving end of Sebek's passing,
set a Conference record yesterday
as he caught four passes to bring
his season total to 19, one more
than the previous high held by
Bill Canfield of Purdue.

HE GAINED 49 yards on these
four catches to place him only
four yards short of the total yard-
age record of 313 set by Michigan's
Dick Rifenburg last year.

American candidate, Dick Kemp-
thorn, was again a tower of
strength. Offensively he averaged
eight yards a try, and set up the

For weeks the University had
been calling yesterday, "band day"
at the stadium-and they weren't
With only one practice session
at 10 a.m. yesterday, 1,850 high
school bandsmen teamed up with
the 120 members of the university
marching band to put on one of
the most spectacular displays ever
to grace the stadium.
* * *
WHILE THE Michigan band
played "Indiana" at half time,
the 29 school bands maneuvered
cleanly onto the field forming the
word "BANDS" in a splashing dis-
play of red, purple, grey, orange,
yellow, blue and white uniforms.
The "small" crowd of 79,200
fans then saw the group shift
into a "SOUSA" formation and
heard the "Stars and Stripes
Forever" played by nearly 2,000
instruments. More than 700 boy
scout color bearers who were
supposed to have taken the field
during this number were bottled
up in the entrance.
Most amazing was the way that
the high school musicians were
able to follow director William D.
Revelli perfectly after only one
** * .
AND THERE were two more
firsts for yesterday's game. It was
the first time this season whole
sections of the end zone were bare
of spectators, and it was the first
game where the weather report
was not perfect.
Bleak overcast skies, with the
sun barely proving its existance,
provided the background. But
the stands were brilliant with
the vari-colored uniforms of the
high school bandsmen who wav-
ed their caps enthusiastically at
the bidding of the cheer leaders.
The "Lets Go Blue" cheer that
has been kicking around campus
more or less quietly for several
years came into its own yester-
day with eager assistance from
cheer leaders and students.
THE UNIVERSITY band was
aided not only by the 29 high
school bands, but by five-year-old
Eugene Waxman who stole the
pre-game spotlight from high-
stepping drum major Fred Breid-
Little Gene, who has followed
the band practice for weeks, led
the band through part of its
pre-game maneuvering, giving
the crowd a big charge.
Fans were also aroused by that
first half score from the Notre
Dame and North Carolina game.
One of the biggest roars of the
day went up from the stadium
when it was announced that in-
vincible Notre Dame was behind

AND A LOT of them were bitter,
judging from the groans, when

customers bundled in the stadium
were members of the University
Press Club, rounding out their
yearly conference here, the presi-
dent of the University of Indiana
and several members of the In-
diana board of trustees.
Also present was a busily scrib-
bling scout from Ohio State.
