Democrats
Favored in
CampusPoll
Williams, Taft
Dewey Chosen
By PAUL BRENTLINGER
Daily City Editor
University students favor the re-
election of Gov. Williams, Sen.
Taft and Gov. Dewey, according
t anpo completed yesterday by
The Daily.
Those polled also said they
would like to see the Democrats
retain control of Congress. They
favored Prof. John P. Dawson over
attorney George Meader in the lo-
cal race for Representative to Con-
gress.
APPROXIMATELY 5 4 0 stu-
dents, representing about 3 per
cent of the resident stvident body,
were polled by 16 menibers of The
Daily staff. While the poll does not
pretend to be scientific in every
respect, an effort was made to cap-
ture a cross-section of student
opinion by stationing pollsters in
several important campus areas.
Students were asked to answer
the following questions:
1. Do you favor the election of
Kelly or Williams as Governor of
} Michigan?
2. Do you favor the re-election of
en. Taft in Ohio?
3. Would you like to see the Re-
publicans or the Democrats win
control of Congress?
4. Do you favor the election of
University Professor John P. Daw-
son, or attorney George Meader,
as Representative to Congress from
this disltrict?
5. Do you favor the re-election
of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey in New
York?
* * *
GOV. G. Mennen Williams re-
ceived a strong endorsement from
students, garnering 262 votes to
163 for his Republican rival Harry
F. Kelly, with 118 no opinion votes
cast. Williams received 62 per cent
of those votes which expressed an
opinion.
Two-hundred-fifty-three stu-
dents favored the re-election of
Sen. Taft, the "Mr. Republican"
from Ohio. He was opposed by
208 students, while 81 registered
no opinion votes. Taft's support-
ers included 55 per cent of those
who expressed opinions.
Democrats would retain control
of Congress if 240 of the students
1olled had their way. Republican
control was favored by 223 stu-
dents, 1 preferred the Socialists
and 72 had no opinion on this sub-
ject. The Democratic vote was only
52 per cent of those which showed
an opinion.
PROF. DAWSON received an
overwhelming vote of confidence
in his race for Congress by those
students who had an opinion on
this campaign. He received 207
votes, while George Meader, his
Republican opponent, was endors-
ed by only 83 students. This means
that 71 per cent of those with
opinions favored Prof. Dawson.
Nearly half the students polled
on this race expressed no opin-
ions. Many of the 249 in this
category reported that they had
never heard of either candidate.
Gov. Dewey received the back-
ing of 265 students, or 55 per cent
of those who had an opinion on
his campaign. Opposing Dewey
were 212 students, while 65 ex-
pressed no opinion.

THE QUESTIONS about Sen.
Taft and Gov. Dewey deliberately

avoided the mention of their re-
spective opponents, Joseph T. Fer-
guson and Walter -A. Lynch. This
was done because competent bb-
servers have said that the issue
in each of these races is largely
whether people are for. or against
Taft or Dewey. It was also thought
that neither Ferguson nor Lynch
are well enough known to get a
good reaction froM this poll.
Students polled at the business
administration school expressed a
strong preference for Republican

UN Forces Stop
New Red Thrust
SEOUL, Korea-(P)-United Nations troops, forming a solid new
battlefront in North Korea, fought off renewed attacks yesterday
from a revitalized Korean Red army and Chinese Communist forces
estimated to equal three to six divisions.
An American officer said South Korean army authorities estimated
that six Chinese Communist divisions had entered Korea from Man-
churia to oppose the UN forces.

First U' TV
Hour To Be
SeenToday
By BOB KEITH
The University will move into
the television field in history-mak-
ing fashion today.
At 1 p.m. President Alexander
G. Ruthven will step before the
WWJ-TV cameras to introduce
the University's first one-hour
"telecourse."
TODAY'S SHOW will constitute
the first attempt ever made to,
pipe college-sponsored courses in-
to thousands of homes by means
of television.
The telecast will be divided
into three 20-minute sections-
two class periods followed by a
"teletour" of University activi-
ties.
Called the "University of Mich-
igan Television Hour,"' the pro-
gram will be presented each Sun-
day.
Written materials, outsile read-
ing lists and examinations will be
sent out to persons who register
for the courses through the Uni-
versity Extension Service. Those
who complete the courses success-
fully will be awarded certificates
of participation.
* * .
CLASS PERIODS will be organ-
ized on a continuous series basis,
with a 14-week course on "Man
in His World-Human Biology"
and a seven-week course in "Liv-
ing in the Later Years" scheduled
to lead off the series.
Today's program will include
a 20-minute Clements library.
"teletour" which will be sent
out direct from campus.
TV viewers will be shown histor-
ical documents housed in the li-
brary. Other campus activities and
points of interest will be featured
in succeeding weeks.
Prof. Karl F. Lagler of the zo-
'ology department and the School
of Natural Resources will conduct
the 14-week biology programs.
The "Living in Later Years"
courses will be taught by Prof.
Wilma Donahue of the Institute of
.Human Adjustment. Today's ini-
tial course will combine illustra-
tions of profitable hobbies with a
discussion of the medical prob-1
lems of aging persons.

U A high-ranking officer of the
U.S. Eighth Army said the Chinese
Reds have probably 300,000 troops
deployed along the Korean -Man-
churian boundary and perhaps
1,000,000 more within "commuting
distance"-ready to strike from
their present locations.
THE CHINESE units identified
in the northwest are only of bat-
talion size, the officer said, but

BULLETIN
By The Associated Press
SEOUL--Waves of Red troops,
reported in field dress of the
Chinese Communist army, today
assaulted and infiltrated the
keystone of the new United Na-
tions defense line in northwest
Korea.
Swarms of Allied planes dived
on the Communist hordes.
the total number of battalions
identified indicates the Chinese
strength there amounts to two di-
visions.
A U.S. Marine spokesman,
however, said a full Chinese
Communist division, operating
openly as one unit, was identi-
fied in northeast Korea, around
the Changjin Reservoir.
Generally, the new Allied front
in northwest Korea held firm un-
der Red pressure.
A battalion of the U.S. 24th di-
vision fought to freedom through
a Red roadblock north of the line.
It had been cut off several hours
in freezing weather.
Warner Seeks
Funds For 'U'
YPSILANTI - Republican Rep.
Joseph E. Warner of Ypsilanti has
promised to call the Legislature's
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee into session in January to con-
sider deficiency appropriations for
the University and six state-sup-
ported colleges.
He also promised to seek salary
raises for faculty members of state
colleges, and to see to appropria-'
tion of funds for a gymnasium
on the Michigan State Normal
College campus in 1951.
Warner, chairman of the pow-
erful Ways and Means Committee,
made his promises during a politi-
cal debate on the campus here
with Mrs. Viola Blackenburg, his
Democratic opponent in the elec-
tion Tuesday.

GOP Draws
President's
Political Fire
Critics Rapped
As Mudslingers
ST. LOUIS-(aP)-President Tru-
man denounced his Republican
critics last night and declared the
Democratic party "has done more
to defeat Communism in this
country than any other group,
public or private."
He told a cheering Democratic
rally in his one frankly political
speech before the general election
Tuesday that Republican attempts
to brand his administration with
Communist sympathies are a
"campaign of lies."
THE PRESIDENT lashed out
bitterly at Republican critics and
declared that "a vote for isola-
tionism" in next Tuesday's elec-
tion "would be a vote for national
suicide."
A crowd estimated variously
by police and auditorium officers
at from 9500 to 11,000 persons
gave the grinning chief execu-
tive a roaring welcome as he
appeared for his free-swinging
campaign address.
He drew repeated applause from
the crowd, particularly when he
declared American leadership to
repel aggression in Korea is "the
greatest step toward world peace
that has been taken in my life-
time."
A cry of "Give 'em hell, Harry"
interrupted the President at one
point.
"I'm going to" he- came back.
"The people are not going to be
fooled by this mud slinging cam-
paign."
Mr. Truman said isolationism
and "greater strength and pros-
perity" are the major campaign
issues.
M .#
HE DECLARED that "certain
vote-hungry Republicans" have
waged a deliberate "campaign of
lies" against government officials.
Without naming Senator Mc-
Carthy (R-Wis.) and other Re-
publicans who have accused the
State Department of being over-
run by Communists, the Presi-
dent said:
"These Republican politicians
have maliciously and falsely made
charges of disloyalty against some
of our finest public servants.
"These Republicans politicians
have been willing in their desper-
ate pursuit of this false issue to
undermine their own government
at a time of great national peril.

Stassen Blasts
'Coddling' Of
Chinese Reds
NEW HAVEN, Conn.-(IP)-Re-
publican leader Harold E. Stassen
charged last. night that because
the Truman administration "cod-
dled" Chinese Communists, Ameri-
can troops are now suffering their
highest casualties of the Korean
war.
Replying to President Truman's
campaign speech inSt. Louis, Stas-
sen declared that thousands of
American young men "are locked
in a bloody battle with one hun-
dred Chinese Communists in the
rugged mountains of North Ko-
rea."
*h* * m
THIS WEEK, he said, American1

casualties have been higher than
any week since the start of the
Korean war. Then he added:
"I solemnly charge that this
is the direct and terrible result
of five years of building up Chi-
nese Communist s t r e n g t h
through the blinded, bewilder-
ing American-Asiatic policy un-
der our present national admin-
istration.
"It has been five years of cod-
dling Chinese Communists, five
years of undermining General

Blizzard, Bowl Hopes Fall Together

By JIM BROWN
Daily Managing Editor
A half-frozen but high-spirited
crowd of 90,000 fans huddled un-
der blankets andtrench coatsas
a blinding snowstorm and a hard-
fighting Illinois team swept away
Michigan's hopes for a New Year's
trip to Pasadena.
Undaunted by the clouds of
damp snow which swirled merci-
lessly from the north end of the
stadium, partisan Michigan root-
ers emerged repeatedly from their
blanket shelters to cheer the Wol-
verines on in their losing battle.
Thomas Will
iscuss Tibet
JourneyHere
Lowell Thomas Jr., who has
traveled recently in the political
hot-spot of Tibet will lecture on
the results of his journey and dis-
play films taken on it at 8:30 p.m.
Tuesday in Hill Auditorium.
On the trip Thomas was granted
an interview by the Dalai Lama.
During this conversation he dis-
covered why he and his famous
father were admitted to the for-
merly forbidden land. Previously
only six Americans had ever been
welcomed to the Dalai Lama's
capital at Lhasa.
Tibetans, Thomas discovered,
were convinced that the Russians
were planning to descend on their
isolated mountain land. They con-
cluded that.America, might be able
to help them, and thus granted
passports to the Thomases.
Included in the grant was per-
mission to take movies, and this
privilege the explorers exploited
fully. These films Thomas Jr. will
show Tuesday, accompanied by his
own running commentary.
Tickets for the third oratorical
series lecture are on sale at the
Hill Auditorium box office at $1.50,
$1.20 and 60 cents. Box office
hours are daily from 10 a.m. to
5 p.m.

Illini fans, scenting the aroma
of California roses, were appar-
ently oblivious to the inclement
weather as they broke out with
delirious cheers as they emerged
from the stadium.

THE UNSEASONAL snow
which produced one of the worst
football Saturdays in recent years,
blew into town early Friday night.
By noon yesterday it was
clearly apparent that Ann Arbor
was in for a dismal afternoon'
and there was little of the tra-
ditional raucus on the Union
steps before the game.
In spite of the controversy which
raged all this week over the An
Arbor" police's sudden crack down
on student program sellers, a size-
able number were out before game
time hawking their ten cent wares.
Although the police rounded up,

WASHINGTON - Wary offi-

ed consulting yesterday on Rus-

to unify Germany on terms laid
down by the Soviet bloc.
But it received a chill reception
in Washington and was likely to
be rejected as a fresh Communist
propaganda maneuver.

26 student hawkers before the
Wisconsin game because they
were blocking traffic, the police
department reported that no stu-
dents were picked up yesterday.
State police officials reported
that nearly all highways leading
into Ann Arbor were heavily jam-
med with some 30,000 cars work-
ing their way over the slippery
roads to make the game. One of-
ficer reported seeing several cars
from upper Michigan arriving
with more than two inches of snow
on their hoods.

THI LONG LINES of traffic
moving out of Ann Arbor after
the game crawled along at a snail's
pace as the storm increased in in-
tensity. -Driving conditions were
reported to be the "worst in sev-
eral years."
Although University officials
had reported the game to be a
sell-out several weeks ago, sev-
eral thousand_ seats were left
unfilled at game time as the
more practical fans chose the
radio and the warm fireside.
Even one Illini student elected
to remain on his special train
rather than fight the unseason-
al snow.
The University's ma r c h in g
band, however, shed their great
coats at half-time and produced
their usual stellar show. Drawing
thunderous cheers from the en-
thusiastic crowd, the band exe-
cuted beautifully its steaming ver-
sion of the "Merry Olcsmobile."

duced- criss-crossed 'patterns on

Michigan cheerleaders attempted
warm themselves and stimulate
the crowd with a short-lived snow-
ball battle. The shivering fans only
sank lower in their soggy blankets,
however.
And the traditional dog, like the
Wolverines, was snowedlout.

Short Pass Nets
Illini Touchdown
By BILL BRENTON
Associate Sports Editor
Snow and an inert Michigan of-
fense combined to grease the rails
for Illinois' Rose Bowl express yes-
terday at the Wolverine stadium.
A capacity crowd of shivering
fans saw the Fighting Illini, beat-
en only once this season, chug 80
yards for a second quarter score,
then stall off the final half on
Don Laz' punting to win 7-0. It
was easily the worst game for slec-
tators at Ann Arbor in a decade.
. * .
SNOW, WHICH fell in increasing
amounts all through the game,
forced Michigan's attack to the
depths of inefficiency. It was the
first time a Maize and Blue eleven
has been shut out since Indiana
turned the trick in 1944. And the
Wolverines did not complete a
pass.
The tone of the game turned
back the clock to the old days
of power football. Only 13 passes
were attempted by both clubs,
Michigan throwing 11 of the.
It was really FOOT-ball yester-
day: The game saw 25 punts of
assorted varieties, the Wolverines
tying the Big Ten record with their
14 boots.
Injuries were expected to make
the difference in the battle, but
no one reckoned with the elements,
As it was, key losses to the Wol-
verine offensive squad, especially
at right halfback, hampered the
losers.
BUT EVEN without speedy John
Karras, Illinois won the game
where they were expected to-on
the ground. With Dick Raklovits
eating up big chunks of snow-co
vered turf, the Illini gained 235
yards on the ground, most of it
coming in the first half.
Both teams had two long runs,
but it was the Indians' >short,
steady gains through the line
that made the difference.
One of the Illin's long romps
started their touchdown march.
After a great quick kick by Chuck
Ortmann, who had his worst of-
fensive day in three years, Rak-
lovits broke away on a quick open-
er and was stopped from behind
by Don Oldham on the Wolverine
48.
Raklovits added two more first
downs before Don; Stevens, ably
taking over for Karras, raced 22
yards to the Michigan 5. But Ste-
vens was thrown back to the seven
and Raklovits held for a yard ad-
vance. It looked like the Wolver-
