Wolverine Offense
Home Season Ends as Michigan Hits
Highest Point Total in Two Years
By BILL BRENTON
Associate Sports Editor
Michigan's improving Wolverines parlayed a crisp running attack
and a hard charging defense into a crucial 34-23 win over Northwest-
ern's stubborn Wildcats yesterday at the Michigan Stadium.
The triumph in one of the most thrilling spectator games in
five years at the Ann Arbor Stadium kept alive a slim mathematical
chance of a Rose Bowl berth in January.
THE GAME was not as tight as the final count indicated since
two desperation passes in the waning minutes tallied twice, for the

Bill Pro-posed
By Rep. Reed
WASHINGTON -(P)- Repub-
licans opposing President Tru-
man's excess profits tax plan pro-
posed a substitute of their own yes-
terday and said it would raise more
revenue.
Sponsored by Rep. Reed of New
York, top Republican on the House
Ways and Means Committee, the
GOP substitute would give corpo-
rations the choice of either paying
an excess profits tax or taking an
increase of 10 per cent in the pre-
sent 45 per cent corporate tax rate.
If the taxpayer elected to pay
under the excess profits alterna-
tive, the amount of tax paid would
have to be at least 50 per cent of
the current year's earnings.
Reed's plan would remain in ef-
fect until Dec. 31, 1952.
The administration nrogram. de-

area.
Inspectors reported that 10,000
birds on the farm were infected
with the disease. On Friday, Weir
pleaded guilty to charges of oper-
ating an unsanitary slaughter
house.
State investigators said that no
cholera has been found in any
other flocks in the state.
Dr. George Bowler, Ann ArbonY

that, so far as he knows, none of
the diseased turkeys have been
sold to local meat dealers.

Russia Gives
World Peace
Necessities
NEW YORK-(P)-Russia's An-
drei Y. Vishinsky declared yester-
day there can be no lasting world
peace until the United Nations ad-
mits the Chinese Communists and
adopts a long list of other Russian
proposals.
Sen. John Sparkman (D-Ala.),
United States delegate, accused
Russia of trying to bulldoze the
United Nations and said the free
world could not accept such a
"bartering of peace."
He said Vishinsky had now made
it clear that Russia would accept
no program for world peace which
did not comply entirely with So-
viet demands.
Vishinsky laid down a series of
preliminary conditions which he
said must be iccepted befpre Rus,
sia would even consider a 10-point,
20-year peace plan submitted by
Secretary-General Trygve L i e.
They include:
1. A pledge not to try to get
around the veto.
2. Unconditional pfohibition of
the atomic bomb.
3. Armed forces under exclusive
control of the Security Council.
4. Aid to backward countries un-
der international control.
5. Development of international
trade without discrimination.
Sparkman said accept'ance of
these points would "force the Unit-
ed Nations to adopt the Soviet
demand for an atomic energy pro-
gram without adequate safeguards.

Aided by mild weather, high
scoring teams and a top notch
band show, the Wolverines' 1950
home football season came to a
colorful close yesterday.
Genuine RKO-Pathe newsreel
cameras captured the pageantry of
the Michigan Marching Band's
musical newsreel which entertain-
ed the 78,201 spectators between
halves of the game. ,
THE PATHE CREW was shoot-
ing part of a special feature on col-
lege bands. It will return to Ann
Arbor in the spring to focus on
the University band's intensive
spring training program, and, the
finished product - will probably be
released some time next summer.
RKO cameraman W illi a m
Deeke commended Prof. Revelli's
musicians for an "excllent" pro-
duction. Ironically, the band
played theme songs which char-
acterize newsreels produced by
Deeke's competitors.
Northwestern's band drew cheers
from the crowd for its portrayal of
the Amerfcan way of life. Demo-
cratic and Republican partisans
tried to outdo each other in their
applause of the donkey and the
elephant which the band formed
to typify the nation's political sit-
uation.
ADDITIONAL COLOR was pro-
vided by Northwestern's attractive
feminine cheerleaders who were
quite successful in producing rous-
ing Wildcat yells. They were aided
by a Northwestern student who
pranced in front of the stands with
a huge wildcat head hiding his
face.
Northwestern fans reported
that Wolverine club flash cards,
which made a belated appear-
ance after two weeks of bad wea-
-ther, did not show up distinctly.
"I could barely make out an M
once," one Wildcat fan said.
Neither city police nor state po-
lice reported any serious auto ac-
cidents as a result of yesterday's
heavy football traffic. The traffic
situation was eased slightly by two
special trains, one each from Chi-
cago and Detroit, which carried
approximately 600 fans to the
game.

Purple, largely against third and
fourth string defenders.
With Don Dufek, Chuck Ort-
mann and Ralph Straffon lead-
ing the way, the Maize and Blue
rushing machine put on its most
impressive show of the season,
munching to a net total of 315
yards. They completed five of
thirteen passes to make the final
offense figure read 374 yards.
T h e Wolverines capitalized
on Wildcat breaks for three of
their five touchdowns, the biggest
scoring surge in eighteen ganias
for a Maize and Blue eleven. One
of the breaks, a third period fum-
ble, set up what proved to be the
winning tally.
The Wolverines were leading
20-9 when Harry Allis stayed on
his. knees to recover Rich Ath-
an's fumble on the visitors' 30
yard line. Despite a clipping
penalty, Michigan covered the
remaining distance in eight
plays. Dufek got one first down
to the nine, and oi fourth down
Ortmann powered over right
tackle for the clincher.
The Wolverines put the ball in
play with a free kick from their
20 to midfield before the Wildcats
roared 51 yards in seven plays.
The final thrust was a 31-yard
jaunt by Athan on a fourth down
and one situation.
AFTER A BEAUTIFUL fake,
quarterback Flowers handed to
Athan who raced over tackle with-
out a hand being laid on him. End
Burt Keddie took Dufek from the
play on the five-yard line and
Northwestern was back in the ball-
game.
But the same punting set-up
plus a crashing Michigan line
allowed the Wolverines to pull
,out once more. Kragseth drop-
ped back to punt from his own
10, but fumbled a low pass from
center. Tony Momson came
bulling through to block his
belated effort and Harry Allis
flopped on the pill in the Purple
end zone.
To completethe list of con-
verting opponent misplays into
touchdowns, the Michiganders in-
tercepted a Wildcat pass on the
second series of downs and scored
in five plays.
* * *
DON DUFEK, who climaxed his
steady improvement with a bril-
liant two-touchdown performance,
picked off the Wildcat aerial and
was finally dropped on the visitor's
35. Tom Johnson'kept the bid
alive by stealing an Ortmann fum-
ble from a host of Wildcats, and
Dufek added 20 yards on a fake
pitch out.
Two more smashes and a five
yard penalty put the ball on the
3. from where Dufek crashed in-
to the end zone. Harry Allis
booted the first of his four con-
versions.
Kragseth's sliced kick paved the
way for the second Wolverine
cotmter only a few minutes after
fans had settled in their seats for
what proved to be the year's top
thrill game.
STARTING from the North-
western. 44,., Chuck. Ortmann,
throwing with determination, hit
Lowell Perry with an 11-yard
jump pass. The fake pitch-out
clicked again, Dufek going to the
7, and Ortmann stumbled into the
end zone on a power drive to com-
plete the three-play march. It
was the first of two TD's for

gotiations, report the pact will
be signed next Thursday or Fri- Em eritusD ies
