UN Salient 63 Miles
From Manchuria
SEOUL, KOREA -(RT)- United Nations forces advanced today to-
ward a North Korean town within 63 miles of Manchuria and also
sealed tighter a trap on an estimated 28,000 Reds.
At Sunchon, 30 miles north of captured Pyongyang, a task force of
United States and South Korean troops set out for Kujang, 40 miles
farther north.
Its mission was one of mercy. It was trying to find a train reported
to be loaded with UN war prisoners. But the advance set the pace for
three South Korean divisions expected soon to join in a war-ending

Langson was announced yester-
day, signaling the fall of the In-
dochina-China frontier zone to
firm control of the Communist-

Chi Minh.
A French Army communique
disclosing this development vowed
that the French will assume the
offensive after regrouping as mo-
bile units and "no further with-
drawal of our troops is foreseen."

BUT THE evacuation of Lang-
son, part of a gradual retreat
from border positions, ended
French chances of a decisive mili-
tary victory anytime soon in the
struggle for domination of this
gateway country to southeast Asia.
Abandonment of the remain-
ing French positions, at Laokay in
the west and Moncay in the east,
is regarded here as only a matter
of time. The French defense line

THE TRAP for the 28,000 Reds,

One was a linkup with the
paratroops by the British Com-

A high spirited homecoming
crowd thoroughly enjoyed watch-

prominence in the football world
Louder than usual Michigan
cheering presented a pleasant con-
trast to the gloom of the crowd at
the Michigan State game, and
showed improvement over the
calmness with which local fans
greeted the Wolverines' win over
Dartmouth two weeks ago.
AMONG THE 91,202 fans who
jamed the stadium yesterday were
Gov. G. Mennen Williams and Sen.
homer Ferguson. Both were in
Ann Arbor for important political
meetings, but each took time out
from duty to enjoy the homecom-
ing pageantry.
It's a great day and a great
game," Sen. Ferguson remarked,
during a brief half-time visit to
the press box.
Truman Slated.
.For- UNTalk
WASHINGTON - (AP-) - Presi-
dent Truman probably will deliver
a new world peace plea to the
United Nations Tuesday, following
up his Pacific conference with
General Douglas MacArthur and
his foreign policy speech in San
Francisco last week.
The United Nations speech is
expected to steer clear of highly
controversial subjects because the
chief executive will speak as head
of the UN's host nation on a cere-
monial occasion-United Nations
The President will deliver it,
nevertheless, against the back-
ground of his Pacific flight and
his repeated warnings to Russia
against further Red aggression.

High Spirits Mark Game.
As Crowd Cheers Team

Former governor Kim Sigler
watched the entire game from a
press 'box seat. He showed little
emotion as he thoughtfully scruti-
nized each play from behind his
impressive cigaret holder.
For the first time this year a.
Wolverine Club sponsored flash
card section went into action in
the student section. Unfortunate-
ly, card holders were not; yet in
mid-season form yesterday, for
fans seated in the east stands re-
ported that they could not figure
out the designs made by the blue
and gold pasteboards.
last week, the Michigan Marching
Band drew loud cheers as it made
its dramatic entry into the
stadium. The band's pre-game
show honored the United Nations,
while the half-time exhibition' of-
fered the band's impressions of a
New York visit.
Wisconsin's band featured big
bass drums hauled on flashy
red-wheeled carts and played by
jitterbugging drummers.
Michigan State Police reported
heavier than usual football traf-
fic yesterday. No serious accidents
w e r e reported, however, and
"people were very cooperative,"
according to a police official.
Wisconsin fans traveled to the
game in style. A special stream-
lined train brought 458 of them
from Madison in 3 luxurious
coaches and a pullman.
A group of 70 students from St.
John's Provincial Seminary, Ply-
mouth, arrived via chartered
buses, and occupied a special
block of seats in the stadium's
north end.
One visitor was absent from this
year's homecoming day game. The
traditional dog failed to make an
appearance on the gridiron prob-
ably because of an innate fear of

ONLY TWO late scores in thd
fourth period against the Wolver

completely one-sided affair 'for th~

Ortmannhad one of the
greatest days of his collegiate
career although he retired early
in the third quarter with a slight
leg injury. He rambled 14 yards
for the first Wolverine marker
and then heaved a long pass to
Bill Putich for another.
In all he accounted for 185
yards on the ground and through
the air. In the first half alone he
completed 10 of 14 passes for a
amazing percentage against the

'other good day as-he personally
accounted for the third arid fourth
Michigan tallies on plunges from
the three and one. He rolled for
74 yards through the stunned Bad-
ger defenders, averaging nearly
four yards a play.
Fred Pickard and Quarterback Bill
Putich each caught three of Ort-
mann's accurate tosses. Putich{
scored the second touchdown on a
brilliantly executed pass play that
covered 28 yards.
Michigan jumped into a 7-0
lead just before the first period
ended. An exchange of punts
and a nice runback by Ortmann
put the ball on the Wisconsin 30.
Dufek and Ortmann alternated
lugging the pigskin down to the
14 from where Charlie slanted offf
tackle for the score. He was hitj
on the five but powered his way
over. Harry Allis kicked the extra'
FUMBLITIS and a couple of
penalties stopped several Wolver-
ine thrusts in the second period,
They drove all the way from their
own 24 down to the Badger's 22
before the refereeshcaught one ofl
them holding.
Earlier the visitors had re-
covered a Michigan funble and
momentarily had threatened to
tie the score. They took advant-
age of a mixup in the. Wolverine
backfield and got the ball on the
32. Three of Bob Petriska's
passes failed and the drive fizzl-
ed out on the 24.
Jim Hammond got off a beauti-
ful 60 yd quick -kick- later in the
quarter from his own 17. The
Wolverines finally took- over on
their 23 and ten plays later they
crossed the Badger goal line for,
the second time.
