BELGRADE, Yugoslavia-(IP)-
Unconfirmed reports said last
night Yugoslavia has bolstered
her trooper strength in the East.
On the diplomatic front Bulgaria
joined three other Cominform
countries and Russia in denounc-

Soviet Union had applied
"blackmail pressure" in the
lBalkan cold war of nerves be-

ago when the Cominform coun-

the West to the East. Despite the
lack of official confirmation, a
tour just completed by this cor-

the country gave little evidence
that Yugoslavia is maintaining

It appeared likely thatgmany of
Tito's crack troops have been

commited a "hostile act."

Hungary and Poland had followed
Russia's lead in denouncing simi-

Coach Sez.®.
Michigan's football coach,
Bennie Oosterbaan, had noth-
ing but the highest praises and
admiration for the Wolverine
team which conquered a deter-
mined Stanford squad yester-
day afternoon.
"I'm very proud of them.
Ever.ybody should be, they
played a wonderful game," he
said in a, call placed by The
Daily to the victory party in
San Francisco.
Plans were discussed for a

gesture, but felt that the late
hour of arrival and the tired
condition of the men would
make such an undertaking im-

Victory Extends
'M' Streak to 25
Ortmann's Arm, Koceski's Running
Feature Attack; Blocking Sharp
(Special to The Daily)
PALO ALTO, Calif-Michigan is still mighty and the STRING
is 25, but it took 60 minutes of rugged football to prove it to the
local skeptics.
West Coast football addicts, long searching for a way to beat a
top Western Conference team, thought they had the answer in
Stanford, conquerer of a good Harvard club a week previous by a
top heavy 44-0 score.
But when the dust of battle had cleared yesterday, the score-
board here in Stanford Stadium read Michigan 27, Stanford 7, and
88,000 disappointed fans were shaking their heads in awe at a
Michigan team which had once again proved its right to a place at
the top of the list of college grid powers.
THE CROWD WENT away, too, singing the praises of lanky
Charlie Ortmann, a doubtful starter until game time because of an
infected toe, whose passing was superb and whose running matched
his passing. And Little Leo Koceski who turned into a slippery blue-
shirted demon every time he carried the ball, received his share of
the plaudits.
Given fine blocking and improved protection on his passes,
Ortmann was right on target with every one of his tosses and
averaged 5.2 yards on 12 carries. Only spotty receiving prevented
a near perfect passing average for the tow-headed junior.
Koceski scored two of the Michigan touchdowns and his running
left little to be desired. He averaged 7.5 yds. on 12 attempts and
left Stanford's highly touted Harry Hugasian in the dust in the
battle for running honors.
THE STATISTICS left little doubt as to the Wolverines' super-
iority. They totaled 23 first downs to Stanford's 13 and gained 286
yards rushing and 98 yards passing compared to 116 and 110 yards
respectively for the Indians.
The West Coasters never stopped trying but their performance
was disappointing. -Their pass defense was poor and the end of
their line was constantly being turned in.
It was hard to believe that this was the same club that had
totaled 98 points to nothing for their opponents -in two previous
games against above average foes.
* * * *
ONLY SOUR NOTE in the Wolverine picture was a new injury
to Capt. Al Wistert, who was forced to leave the game mid-way
through the third period. However he was walking with no sign of
a limp after the game and it was believed that he would not be
forced out of action for the Army game.
The Wolverines threw a scare into the Indians early in the
first quarter when guard Lloyd Heneveld pounced on Stanford
fullback Bill DeYoung's fumble on the Stanford 47 starting a
drive which went to the Indian 19 before Wolverine fullback Don
Dufek lost the ball on a fumble.
Stanford failed on two passes after Harry Hugasian, a swivel-
hipped hard-running halfback had picked up nine yards on first
down and the Indian kick was taken by Leo Koceski on the Mich-
igan 40.
THIS TIME THERE was no stopping the Maize and Blue attack.
Ortmann weaved his way 15 yards to the Stanford 45 and then got
off a long pass to Harry Allis on the Indian 21. Allis went high into
the air to ma'ke a beautiful twisting catch and bulled two more yards
before he was halted.
From there Dufek and Ortmann took turns carrying the
ball to the Indian 2. Koceski then crashed over. Allis converted
and the scoreboard read Michigan 7, Stanford 0 with four min-
utes remaining in the first quarter.

"We feel that was a better

social security did not figure in.
And the contributions provided a

now taken by Big Steel and other
industries. It was directly oppo-
