lGiant Crowd Welcomes
Rose Bowl Champions
Wined, dined and a trifle travel weary, Michigan's 1951 Rose
Bowl champions received a warm homecoming welcome from a crowd
of 5,000 townspeople and students as their special train arrived early
Saturday evening at the New York Central depot.
The crowd which swarmed around the ancient stone station and
struggled for vantage points on the bridge and surrounding embank-
ments, braved a biting wind and temperatures in the low twenties
to roar their approval of the gridders' 14-6 conquest of California.

Williams asked for the $37,-
000,000 to complete construction
projects already committed, to
wipe out various departmental
and operating deficites and to
speed up the highway construc-
tion program.
$27,000,000 of the total would
come from the state's general
fund, which was $21,000,000 in the
red at the end of the last fiscal
year. The other $10,000,000 would
be highway money which already
has been collected and earmark-
ed for road purposes but not yet
appropriated by the legislature.
The governor asked for a net
of $10,400,000 to complete con-
struction projects on which some
money already has been spent. He
contended that the construction
outlook is so uncertain 'that all
projects should be rushed to com-
pletion before building costs rise
