Williams Trails-
In Race by 307
Recount Appears Imminent As
More Counties Discover Errors
DETROIT-P)-The Michigan governorship race, still a virtual
runoff after four post-election days of ballot-bungling, appeared to
be reaching the nub of the real margin between Governor G. Mennen
Williams and Former Governor Harry F. Kelly.
With an ocean of errors wrung out of unofficial election returns
in most counties, Republican Kelly had a "paper" lead of 307 votes
over Democrat Williams, the 39-year-old first termer.
THE LEAD was a "paper" lead, in the opinion of election ob-
servers, because it rested on an error in Warren Township of Macomb
County which was almost a certainty to produce several hundred more
Democratic ballots in a recount. And a recount appeared a certainty.
Seventy-four of Michigan's 83 counties have reported semi-
officially or officially results of their governorship race
canvass of Tuesday's ballots.

Korean Reds
Drive Back
UN Forces
KOREA-(P)-A heavy counter-
attack by six North Korean bat-
talions on the Northeast front
halted an advance by the South
Korean Capital Division and drove
it back five miles, the U.S. Tenth
Corps announced yesterday.
The Republic of Korea. 18th reg-
iment was only 85 air miles from
the Soviet frontier yesterday when
the North Koreans attacked in a
double enveloping movement. The
S. Korean regiment was forced to
withdraw to the Myong River.
Tenth Corps reported no fighting
contact was made with Chinese
Communists anywhere along the
In the northwest, however, Al-
lied troops attacked from their
Chongchon River bridgehead in
northwest Korea gaining four miles
in the first three hours.
Red opposition ranged from
slight to heavy.
The advance broke a five-day
lull in ground operations. In the
period of quiet, Chinese and North
Korean Communist troops had*
pulled back to far North Korea af-
ter delivering hard shock punches
to the Allies.
Chinese Reds
To Go Before
UN Council
munist China notified the United
Nations yesterday she is sending
a nine-man delegation here to
argue her charges that the Unit-
ed States is an aggressor, but that
she rejects a Security Council in-
vitation to discuss Chinese inter-
vention in Korea.
The Communist Chinese For-
eign Minister, Chou En-Lai, an-
nounced the decisions in two sep-
arate cables to the UN Secretary-
General, Trygve Lie.
THE PEIPING regime notified
Lie a nine-man delegation will
depart by air from Peiping Nov.
14 in response to a Security Coun-
cil invitation extended Sept. 29
for the Communists to be repre-
sented in council talks on the
Peiping charge that sealing off of
Nationalist-held Formosa by the
U.S. Seventh Fleet constitutes ag-
gression against China.
The Chinese Communists, in a
later communication to Lie. said

Four of the remainder-Shia-
wassee, Calhoun, Saginaw and Ma-
comb-had reported partially can-
vassed figures, and only Genesee,
Ingham, Kalamazoo, Oakland and
Wayne had no official figures yet
in the tally columns. There was
reason to believe the Ingham fig-
ures were close to official.
Thus the outcome of the elec-
tion lies now in a scant nine coun-
ties which hold some of the larg-
est ballot boxes in the state.
THE HOTTEST spotlight cen-
tered in Wayne County, where
election officials were prowling
through a mass of 586,000 ballots
in search of error-of which there
had been too much already.
The Detroit election commis-
sion had two shifts worklag day
and night in an attempt to bring
the real answers out of the met-
\roiolitan vote chaos.
Saturday the officials finished
checking all precinct tally sheets
to make sure all straight ballots
had been counted. This was the
slip-up which tipped over Kelly's
apparent victory Wednesday and
started a tidal wave of retabula-
tion across Michigan.
French Attack
In Indochina
SAIGON, Indochina - (IP) -
French troops slashed out yester-
day in a drive to recapture an out-
post of Moncay which they gave
up Friday to- Vietminh forces of
Soviet-trained Ho Chi Minh.
The French listed Ho Chi Minh
himself as a "possible casualty" of
a French air attack Friday at an-
other point, the town of Langxa,;
but emphasized they had no cer-
tain proof.
The Communist-led Vietminh
troops, in forcing the evacuation
of the post, had suffered heavy

Fund Pledges
To Be Taken
Goal Set At $30
For Each Student
The student end of the Michigan
Memorial Phoenix Project fund-
raising campaign will get under
way tomorrow.
After nearly four years of ex-
tensive planning, work on the cam-
pus Phoenix drive will begin with
the aid of a gigantic crew of stu-
dent workers.
* * *
THE AIM of the student execu-
tive committee; which has the job
of planning, directing and coordi-
nating the drive, is to contact ev-
ery University student living in
Ann Arbor.
Whether the students live in
residence halls, rooming houses
or fraternities or sororities, they
will be contacted by one of the
volunteer workers.
Mary Lubeck, 51, head of the
student campaign, announced that
no definite goal has been set for
the drive. "We would like every
member of the student body to set
his contribution at $30," he said.
The sum donated may be paid
over a three year period beginning
the first of the year on any rate
of payment the student desires.
OVERALL GOAL for the com-
bined Project drives, which cover
all the globe, is $6,500,000.

Long distance telephone service

A resumption of picketing yes-
terday after a return to work Fri-

by the Communication Workers of
America against the Michigan Bell
Telephone Company.
IN DETROIT, mediators virtual-
ly gave up hope yesterday of set-
tling the state-wide strike when
faced with such tactics.
The scant hope remaining
seemed to be pinned on the pos-
sibility of a break in the nation-;
al strike of employes of Western
Electric, a subsidiary of the vast
Bell System.

would remain that way was a big
question, however, because of the1
CIO Communications Workers of

warning in any place where it rep-
resents Michigan Bell employes.
The company today suspended
17 employes at a Detroit exchange.
They were part of a 43-man grew

Progress In Football Pools
QueryReported by Police

After another full day of in-
vestigation on campus student-
run football pools, police yester-
day indicated that definite pro-
gress was being made.
Sergeant Walter Krasny of the
Ann Arbor Police, who is handling
the investigation, said last night,
"It is possible that we will have
something quite tangible by the
middle of next week."
THE PROBE followed publica-
Cold Weather
A cold wave with freezing tem-
peratures was predicted for lower
Michigan last night and forecast-
ers said it would rise above freezing
level today.
Ann Arbor shivered yesterday as
the temperature hovered between
26 and 32 degrees. Snowstorms ap-
proaching blizzard proportions,
however, whipped throughout the1
state, but Ann Arbor escaped its

tion of an article in The Daily
Nov. 9 which charged that up to
$2,000 a week was being bet on
football pool cards in the Uni-
versity community.
As to the definite details of
the investigation, Sgt. Krasny
would only say that a number of
fraternity houses have been vis-
ited and that several suspects
had been interviewed.
Meanwhile Dean Walter B. Rea
announced that he would no long-
er be connected with the investi-
gation in any way.
ALTHOUGH THE police refus-
ed to comment further, it was
learned that one of the spots they
were checking on yesterday was
the football score bulletin board
on the second floor of the Union.
At least one student having
a pool card in his possession,
was questioned by police as he
studied the scores at the Un-
He explained to the authorities
he was not using the card for
placing a bet with the bookies, but

ters from cheering their victory
with enthusiasm. Except for a
half-time show with its accent on
yelling, the stadium was rela-
tively quiet yesterday.
When 2,038 high school cheer-
leaders shed their overcoats just
before the half-time ceremonies
began, the stadium's end zones
were flooded with a myriad of
colorful costumes. The cheer-
leaders danced everything from
the Charleston to a vigorous
can-can in order to keep warm
before going into their act.
They came to Ann Arbor from
279 Michigan high schools to at-
tend a University-sponsored cheer-
leading clinic and to lead between
halves cheering at the stadium

drew shouts of laughter from
the entire stadium as he finally
left the field.
Jiggs, the Beta Theta Pi English
bulldog mascot, managed to inter-
rupt the ball game by dashing onto
the field at 2:12 p.m. He was fol-

Key To Win
Bradford Stars
In EasyVictory
Daily Sports Editor
Michigan's football team aban-
doned their previously indispens-
able pass offense ,after finding it
unsuccessful in the preceeding two
contests, solved a big backfield
problem and in so doing effected
a 20-7 win yesterday over un-
derdog Indiana.
The strong ground attack was
paced by 155-pound Wes Brad-
ford, former fifth-string halfback
who ended Wolverine Coach Ben-
nie Oosterbaan's search for a re-
placement for injured wingback
Leo Koceski, by averaging an even
seven yards on 15 attempts, for a
105 yard total.

MICHIGAN netted 317 yards -on
the muddy ground, 95 of them
gained on touchdown runs of 41
and 54 yards by Bradford and full-
back Don Dufek, respectively. The
Wolverines gained only 80 yards
on 13 passes.
A hearty 67,379 fans, the
smallest Ann Arbor crowd in 15

Bradford, who ran with the pre-
cision of a seasoned performer,
tore the game wide-open with his
second quarter touchdown scamper
which put Michigan ahead, 12-0,
and proved to be the game-win-
ning play.

WITH ONLY 1:40 ticked out of
the first quarter, end Harry Allis
intercepted a Hoosier Lou D'Achil-
le's pass on the Indiana 33, picked
up four blockers and expressed the
ball into the end zone to lead his
team to the victory trail. Allis'
attempted conversion was blocked
by Ernie Kovatch, but the Wol-
verines had picked up a never re-
linquished lead.
