Wage Boost
Monthly Raise
Of $54 Given
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - A monthly
raise of about $54 for 7,000 rail-
road yardmasters was announced
yesterday by the White Hopse.
The agreement was reached be-
tween the AFL's Railroad yard-
masters of America and represen-
tatives of the nation's railroads
with the aid of John R. Steelman,
assistant to President Truman.
Settlement terms are over and
above the 18-cent hourly oost
recommended by a presidential
emergency board. In addition to
that, the yardmasters get five
cents an hour, for a total 23 cents
The agreement, smilar to one
negotiated by the AFL's Switch-
men's Union ol. July 6, provides
for a five day week. But it stipu-
lates the 40-hour week will be set
aside for at least one year and be
thereafter "subject to the desires
of the employes and the man-
power situation."
Thus the yardmasters, like the
switchmen, will continue on a
48-hour week for the time being.
Meanwhile 16 unions represent-
ing 1,000,000 rail workers were re-
ported getting ready to start a
new wage increase drive. They
have scheduled a strategy meeting
here on Oct. 11.

OTTAWA - Canada, with her
gold and American dollar reserves
at' an all-time high, yesterday
freed the Canadian dollar from
the devalued peg on which she
fixed it a year ago.
The move, announced here by
Finance Minister Douglas Abbott,
came after last night's temporary
suspension of all foreign exchange
dealings in this country. There
had been speculation that this
would mean closing the nine-cent
gap between the Canadian and
American dollars.
Instead, Abbott said:
"It has been decided not to es-
tablish any new fixed parity for
the Canadian dollar at this time,
nor to prescribe any new official
fixed rates of exchange.
"Instead, rates of exchange will
be determined by conditions of
supply and demand for foreign
currencies in Canada."
Prior to Abbott's announcement,
the Canadian dollar was worth
about 91 cents in terms of the

Spartans Outplay
Maize and Blue
Startling Upset Gives State Rivals
First Victory Over 'M' in 13 Years
Daily Sports Editor
The sour-grapes cry of "miait-till-next-year" has been eliminated
from the vocabulary of Michigan State football fans.
Yesterday, an aggressive, confident Spartan team out-maneuvered
the disappointing Wolverines in registering a 14-7 victory over their
strong state rivals. It was the first time in 13 years that the Green
and White has beaten the Wolverines, who dropped their first opening
game since the 19-14 loss to State in 1937.
A schizophrenic crowd of 97,239 Witnessed the biggest upset of
the young 1950 season as the Spartans scored in the opening and
final periods on a 67-yard march and 19-yard rush that was set up
by Jesse Thomas' well-teamed punt return.
The Wolverines, who played hot and cold football all afternoon,
scored on a perfect touchdown pass from wingback Don Peterson

He called on the North Koreans to;
lay down their arms and cease,
hostilities under such military su-
pervision as he would direct.
Gen. MacArthur said he antici-
pated the early decision of the
North Koreans. Hecalled on North
Koreans to surrender "on whatever
part of Korea situated."
In a broadcast to the enemy, he
declared that "complete destruc-
tion of your armed forces and war
making potential is inevitable."
The Supreme Commander for
the United Nations in his broad-
cast also demanded mmediate
release of "all United Nations pri-
soners of war and civilian inter-
Gen. MacArthur made no men-
tion of any decision by United
Nations forces to cross the 38th
parallel into North Korea. But hi,,
demand that the enemy lay down
his arms, whether in North or
South Korea, seemed to indicate
that his forces would cross the
border if necessary to bring the
war to an end.
Unofficial reports to U.S. Eighth
Army headquarters in Korea said
the South Korean Third Division,
which reached the 38th parallel
at the town of Ingu Friday night,
had crossed the 38th parallel.
The South Korean national as-

up Gen. MacArthur's demand that;
North Koreans surrender.
Spearheads of the South Ko-
rean third division have reached1
the 38th parallel at the east coast
village of Ingu. Three other South
Korean divisions rolling north-

ficial reports. Their advance ele-

Ensian Offers Big Chances
To Avid Student Tryouts

The Michiganensian is raising
a call of "rfryouts!" for its first
organizational meeting tomorrow.
During the course of the meet-
ing, scheduled for 4 p.m. in the
Student Publications Building, the
eight junior editors will brief the
tryouts on their departments.
Then for a three week period
tryouts will migrate from staff to
staff, learning the technicalities
of engraving, layout and other es-
sentials. After that they will be
free to work in the departmentj
they're most interested in.
"Tryouts in the past found that
work on the 'Ensian not only spic-
c.d up the routine of school work
but gave them an intimate group
of friends, which many students

Junior Editor Margaret Padden,
reminiscing about her tryout
training last year, remarked she
did everything from "tracking
down deans in their native lair to
doubling in brass as a photogra-
pher's model in dormitories and
gin mills."
"I feel like a veteran this.year,"
she added, "but only because I
was given such careful training."
.Initiation into the art, photo-
graphy, organizations, h o u s e
groups, sports, senior pictures, fea-
tures, school and college depart-
ments will be part of the tryout's

ond boor of the Student Publica-
tions Building. Another meeting
will be held at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
Business tryout meetings have
been scheduled for 4:44 p.m. on
the same days in the same place.
Editorial staff training enables
tryouts to learn reporting tech-
nics, headline writing, proofread-
ing and other aspects of putting'
a newspaper together. The pro-

for individuals interested in learn-

After basic training editorial
tryouts will spend one night a
week in assisting the night editor
in headline writing and other
night desk procedure essential tol
assembling the paper. Business
staffers will begin immediately se-
curing advertising.
Students interested in writing
movie, drama, record and book re-
views are also needed on The Daily,

Spartan Fans
Rejoice After
MSC Victory
Goal Posts Taken
By State Students
Wildly excited Michigan State
fans yesterday swarmed over the
playing field, hoisted a small MSC
pennant to the top of the stadium
flagpole, and trumphanty-arch-
ed off with the goal posts to cele-
brate their first win over the
Maize and Blue since 1937.
Spartan boosters ignored a pub-
lic address system request to stay
off the field after the game, and
dashed out to congratulate their
pigskin heroes immediately after
the clock ticked off the final sec-
ond of playing time.
Minutes later, they had secured
a rope to'the top of the north goal
posts. By pulling the rope and
bendir4 the posts back and forth
with the weiglht of their numbers
they soon tore off the top half of
the posts.
As groups of State fans paraded
around the field with the north
posts, another mob went to work
on the south goal. Public address
announcers futilely appealed to
their "sense of sportsmanship" in
an effort to save the south posts
and save bystanders from possible
The souvenir hunters paused
temporarily in the middle of the
first verse of the Star-Spangled
Banner, which had been started
by the Michigan band as a final
means of halting the activity.
Shortly after the band ceased to
play, the mob returned to its work,
and the south goal post soon top-
"We're going to parade this
thing up the main street of Ann
Arbor, then take it back to our
frat house in East Lansing," one
MSC fan said, as he walked up
the stadium steps bearing his por-
tion of a goal post.
All this activity reminded alum-
ni of post-game celebrations dur-
ing the mid-1930's, when State
walloped the Wolverines consist-
ently. Spartan fans went home
with stadium goal posts in 1935
and 1936, but failed to do so after
fighting bloody battles with local
fans in 1934 and 1937. State's
football team was victorious in
all fcur of those years.

to German beer and a well known
Liberty Street tavern brought as
much applause from local fans
