Op the western end of the 250-

The enemy was believed to be

Allied patrols moved out two to

Behind-the-front war flared in

Students in
Pool Probe
Ann Arbor police have been
questioning students whose names
have been found on football pool-
card stubs, in their efforts to clear
up the campus student-run foot-
ball pools.
Sergeant Walter Krasny, who is
handling the investigation, would-
n't confirm the report yesterday,
but did say, "We have certain in-
formation which will probably
lead to arrests, but right now we
don't know how many or who will
be arrested."
Krasny went on to say ,that
there would be no arrests until the
investigation is "pretty well com-
plete." Exactly when this would be
he didn't know, but he said he
"wouldn't be surprised" if arrests
were made sometime next week.
The Daily learned yesterday
that the authorities have one
cache of stubs from pool cards. It
is on these stubs that the bettor
circles his choices and also writes
his name.

Exactly how many stubs the
police have could not be deter-
mined. One report said they had
600 in their possession. It was
learned, however, that they have
already questioned between 20 and
30 student betters, and that the
questionings would continue again
this ,morning or on Monday.

3. If a loss is suffered, what
part of the athletic program shoulai

"Neither. the Board in Control

STORRIE also revealed that the
SL was very fortunate in obtain-

"In the past SL has borrowed
regular ballot boxes from Ann

we might have some trouble this
year when we learned that all
boxes used in the state election
were being impounded because
of the rpuddled gubernatorial
race. However, luckily for the
SL, both cities had switched this
year to machine voting.
"If we hadn't gotten the boxes lo-
cally, we probably would have had
to borrow some from cities in
Ohio," he added.

Morse Fights
For Major
Senate Post
Claims Backing
Of Vandenberg
WASHINGTON - () - Sena-
tor Morse (R-Ore.) pressed his
fight for a seat on the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee by
producing yesterday a letter from
Senator Vandenberg of Mich.
In it Vandenberg, top-ranking
Republican on the committee, told
Morse "the path is now clear for
you to cash your IOU on a seat."
Vandenberg added that he would
be happy over such an outcome.
A FIGHT appeared to be on be-
tween Morse and forces backing
Senator Knowland (R-Calif) for
the coveted committee vacancy in
the new Congress. The outcome
may have an important bearing
on the course of foreign policy.
Vandenberg has been a leader
in an effort to carry out a bi-
partisan foreign policy. Morse
probably has been more often in
Vandenberg's corner than has
A quiet boom came to light this
week for Knowland, sharp critic

ign affairs, particularly in the Far
MORSE has the advantage of
seniority, a point cherished by the
Senate. The attitude of Vanden-
berg has been a big question mark.
Morse claimed this was ans-
wered by the letter, which read
as follows:
"I do not need to tell you that
I am happy over your richly de-
served Tuesday victory. I never
doubted the outcome. I should say
the path is now clear for you to
cash your IOU to a seat in the
Foreign Relations Committee.
"IF I succeed in returning in
January-which I expect to do, at
least on limited term-I shall be
entirely comfortable and happy to
see you in this committee position.
Vandenberg expected to re-
sume in Jan. his role of biparti-
san leadership which bad health
forced him to abandon several
months ago.
The committee seat at issue will
be filled by the Senate Republi-
can Committee on committees. The
vacancy results from increased Re-
publican power in the new Con-
gress. Whereas the present ratio is
eight Democrats and five Repub-
licans, the new committee will con-

Wolverine Bowl
Hopes in Balance
AssociateSports Editor
Michigan's hot and cold Wolver-
ines will attempt to stay on the
rocky road to the Rose Bowl this
afternoon when they tangle with
aerial-minded Northwestern in the
Michigan Stadium.
Close to 80,000 fans are expected

ceded a slight edge, mostly on the
strength of their strong showing
against Indiana, but the Wildcats
will be anything but a pushover
with the sensational passing duo
of Dick Flowers and Don Stone-
sifer in the lineup.
Then too, Bennie Oosterbaan's
forces are still far from top
physical condition, contrary to
reports early this week.
Two right halfbacks, Leo Ko-
ceski and Don Peterson are still
definite question marks, and line-
men John Hess and Pete Kinyon
are on the doubtful list. All could
possibly see action today but it
probably will be limited.
* * *
OOSTERBAAN may be forced to
use several of the Wolverines both
offensively and defensively again,
a course he hates -to follow. Don
Dufek will be one of them along
with a couple linemen. The safety
slot will be shared by Charlie Ort-
mann, Bill Putich and Lowell Per-

of the ledger, of course,- is that

More important, however, was
the confidence and poise he ex-
hibited in his first real assignment
with the Maize and Blue. It's a
safe bet that he will be given the
wingback slot again today to prove
that last week's show was no fluke.
ORTMANN figures to be in still
better condition than he has been
for most of the season, and with
the pile-driving Dufek to smash
up through the middle, the Michi-
ganders are expected to present
the same better balanced attack
they displayed last Saturday.
To offset that, Bob Voigt's lads
from Evanston have a whole
mess of statistics to throw at the
Wolverines to prove that they
expect to be in the contest for a
full 60 minutes.
Flowers needs just three more
completions to add to his present

Not Guilty,
Plea Give
By Collazo
WASHINGTON -()P)- "I plead
not guilty, your honor.
Thus spoke Oscar Collazo yes-
terday when called upon to plead
to an indictment carrying the pos-
sible death penalty for his part in
the Nov. 1 attempt to two Puerto
Rican revolutionists to kill Presi-
dent Truman.
The six words were all Collazo
said during yesterday's brief pro-
ceedings before U.S. District Judge
Henry A. Schweinhaut. He spoke
them in English with a slight
Spanish accent.
The indictment charges him
with murder and housebreaking
with intent to murder.
Most of the 20 minutes Collazo
was in court were takli up in de-
fense arguments against rushing
him to trial and prosecution in-
sistence upon a speedy trial.
Judge Schweinhaut set no trial
date but, in effect, rejected Dec.
13, a date favored by U.S. District
Attorney George Morris Fay.
