Associate Sports Editor
NEW YORK-A brilliant second half rally and a couple of reserve
halfbacks gave mighty Army its 23rd straight triumph yesterday and
fourth win without loss over Michigan's Wolverines.
The two backs, Al Bollard and Vic Pollock, sparked third and
fourth period drives that brpught the Cadets a smashing 27-6 victory
before 67,076 fans in -Yankee Stadium.
THE WOLVERINES, led by Charlie Ortmann, put on a tremen-
dous first half show for the huge crowd, and narrowly missed running
the Cadets right off the field before intermission.
But beginning late in the third quarter the Cadets could do no
wrong, and they took advantage of the breaks to score three quick
touchdowns and doom the Mich-
iganders to their second -setbackSector
In three starts. E s
Michigan lost the services of
their right halfback, Leo Koceski,
early in the second quarter and -' rr ans to

NOT OFTEN ENOUGH-Don Dufek, Michigan fullback, plunges over for Michigan's lone tally of the day in the first quarter from
inside of the five yard line. Dufek who gave yearling service in the bucking and spinning slot all day was a thorn in the side of the
Cadets right up to the end, but his performance coupled with a great day by Chuck Ortmann. was not enough. Army scored heavily
in the last half to win 27-6. In this picture Dufek is shown tripping over the goal line as Black Knight line backers lunge to tackle him.
The crowd of 70,000 was well saturated with Wolverine suppoxt ers who went wild, as Don plunged over in anticipation of a stunning
upset, but the men of Blaik were not to be denied. The running o f Army's second string backs, Vic Pollock and Al Pollard, told the
story an4 final score.

BALACKPOOL, England - (A)
-Winston Churchill warned the
West yesterday against getting too
deeply involved in.Asia's troubles
because the danger from Commu-
nism in Europe is far greater.
The threats in the Far East, the
wartime Prime Minister said,"are

us, tower up against us on the

WASHINGTON - (R') - A de-
mand that the new, tighter curbs
on automobile installment pur-
chases be lifted was made yester-
day by Fred L. Hailer, president of
the National Automobile Dealers
He said people were being
thrown out of work and the na-
tional economy damaged by pre-
viously announced restrictions and
he called the new ones the "most
drastic economic regulation ever
forced upon a free people."
* * *
HE MADE his protest in a'tele-
gram to the Federal Reserve
Board. The board Friday issued
new regulations under which the
pay-off limit on automobiles was
cut from 21 to 15 months, with
the cash down payment remaining
one third. In Sept. the Board had
issued the regulations calling for
the one third down payment with
21 months to pay.
Auto manufacturers and dealers
in Detroit predicted yesterday that
auto production will fall off and
unemployment increase as a re-
sult of the new federal credit
The Detroit Automobile Dealers
Association called the restrictions
a "terrible blow."

Robert H. Stacy, confessed Hav-
en Hall arsonist, was "in no men-
tal condition to talk with anyone"
yesterday afternoon, according to

Young attributed Stacy's "men-
tal confusion" to continual, rigor-
ous questioning by police officials
during the past few days.

U.S. Army is building up its
strength in Berlin.
The Sixth Infantry Regiment,
disbanded after World War Two,
is being recreated and some units
of it-the army wouldn't say how
many-are being assigned to gar-
rison duty in the former German
Apparently the action is being
taken to show that the U.S. in-
tends to keep occupation troops
in Berlin despite any future Soviet
moves to force them out.
An Army spokesman said ,men
for the newly-formed units will
be drdwn from other American
units throughout Germany. The
other units will be brought back
to full strength eventually with
replacements from the U.S.

YOUNG, WHO was named Sta-
cy's attorney by Circuit Judge
James R. Breakey, Jr., said he
would probably confer with Stacy
this afternoon on whether the at-
torney would defend him and what
kind of plea would be entered to
the court.
Friday, Young told reporters,
-"I think Stacy will defend him-
self." He was to have talked with
Stacy yesterday afternoon in re-
gard to this and other matters
pertinent to the forthcoming
Stacy's arraignment is tentative-

condition by that time."

connection with the Montgomery
Ward & Co. warehouse fires and
a series of purse-snatchings on
campus in which police believe he
may be implicated.
Meanwhile, police continued
their attempt to locate Zelda
Clarkson, Stacy's ex-girl friend,
who gave information leading
to his arrest.
Young was named to represent
Stacy after Joseph Hooper, origi-
nally appointed as Stacy's lawyer,
stepped out of the case because of

BERLIN - (A) - Most of East
Germany's 13,000,000; voters will
be routed out today by a Russian-
sponsored campaign to get unani-

unopposed ticket of Communists
and fellow travelers.
The vote for the Soviet zone's
"National Front"-70 per cent
Communists and 30 per cent voice-
less Christian Democrats and Li-
beral Democrats - will put into
office for another four-year term
almost the identical government
which appointed itself to lead East
Germans a year ago.
With thinly-veiled threats that
failure to vote will mark them as
warmongers, the Easterners have
little choice but to turn in an un-
marked ballot approving a Red-
packed regime to lead East Ger-
many in full satellite status in the
Soviet bloc.
To assure the "enthusiasm" of
the voting which the Communists
confidently expect to bring in "yes"
votes for 90 to 95 per cent of the
voting population, 195,000 Red-of -
ficered Volkspolizei (People's Po-
lice) already are on hand to crush
any show of dissidence.
