'U' Puckrnen
Beat Brown;
Fast Team Play
Nets 7-1 ictory
Special to The Daily
Michigan's puckmen put on their
greatest performance of the sea-
son last night as they walloped
the Brown University Bruins, 7 to
1, to win the 1951 NCAA Hockey
Tournament at the Broadmoor
Ice Palace here.
The triumph was truly a team
victory as the Wolverines dis-
played a brilliant defense coupled
with potent offensive power and
speed to completely outclass the
Brains, who put up -a game but
hopeless battle.
* * *
Heathcott, Alex McClellan, and
Graham Cragg was beautiful to
behold. Repeatedly they threw
back Brown scoring thrusts and,
their backchecking plus the alert-
ness of the Wolverine forward
A lines kept Brown from ever mak-
ing a serious threat.
So outstanding was the Maize
and Blue defense that goalie
Hal Downes, who played a fine
game himself in the nets, did
not have a single save on a
Brown shot on goal for the
first 15 minutes of the game.
Oddly enough there wxs very
little bodychecking by Wolverine
forwards and defensemen. The
Wolverines threw back the Brown
attackers by the simple process
of poking the puck off their sticks
before they ever could get over
the Michigan blue line.

BUT IN ADDITION to the great
work of the defense, which had
been a sore spot in previous hock-

Senators Ask
Casey Recal,
In RFCPr e
WASHINGTON -()P)- Embat-
tled Republican senators investi-
gating alleged favoritism in gov-
ernment loans yesterday demanded
one more crack at former Rep.
Casey (D-Mass), one of economic
stabilizer Eric Johnston's top aides.
The move to needle Casey about
an admittedly faulty memory may
add new fuel to a mounting con-
troversy between Democrats and
Republicans of a Senate banking
subcommittee now winding up a
drama-packed inquiry into Re-
construction Finance Corporation
loans. The Republicans want to
keep the inquiry going.
SENATOR Fulbright (D-Ark),
the subcommittee chairman, con-
tends his group already has proved
the RFC was subject to political
influence and that the committee
should now let some more appro-
priate group take over. He de-
mands an investigation of the
moral standards of government as
a whole, but insists his subcommit-
tee is not the one to handle this
because it was created to handle
only RFC matters.
The subcommittee has named
Casey as an associate of men
with White House contacts who
wielded influence on RFC loans.
Casey denied he had any undue

influence anywhere in govern-
Senator Bennett (R-Utah), a
member of the subcommittee,
touched off the move to recall
Casey as a witness.
Casey got into hot water with

fied recently that a Treasury of-
ficial's informal ruling had guided
him to a big saving in federal taxes

PARIS-,(JP)--The three western
deputies told Andrei Gromyko in
hardening words at the windup of
the second week of conferences
yesterday they want a Big Four
foreign ministers meeting - but
not at any price.
A French spokesman said the
Soviet deputy foreign minister,
Philip Jessup of the United States,
Ernest Davies of Britain and
Alexandre Parodi of France had
a rather bad session, with each
side repeating a lot of "known
Parodi was quoted as telling
Gromyko the West will not go to
a Big Four meeting "with its
hands tied."
However, the Western deputies
extracted no concessions from
Gromyko which might lead to
ironing out a list of subjects to
be discussed by a foreign minis-
ters' meeting with a view to easing
off the mounting international
steam pressure.
Tomorrow the deputies will hold
their 13th session with the situa-
tion just about as it was when
the talks began Mar. 5.
Gromyko is demanding the de-
militarization of Germany and
reduction of armaments of the
Big Four be taken up as separ-
ate and paramount items.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina-
(AP)- A nine-man congressional
committee to take over affairs of
the strikebound independent news-
paper LaPrensa is expected to be
completed tomorrow.
Three members from the all-
Peronista senate have already been
named. The appointment of six
deputies-five followers .of Presi-

The seizure of the multi-million
dollar newspaper was authorized in
a resolution adopted in a special
session of congress Friday night,
over the opposition of a handful of
radicals in the house.
The resolution gives the commit-
tee full power to keep silenced the
paper which was President Peron's
strongest domestic critic.
LaPrensa has been closed for 51
days by a boycott of the govern-
ment-backed news vendors union
and a sympathy strike called by
the printers union.

Democratic r e g e n t candidate
and incumbent Regent Murray
Van Wagoner yesterday took a
hefty swing at the state legisla-
ture's "failure to provide sufficient
appropriations for the University."
The ex-governor, key speaker at
a state Democratic luncheon in the
Union, said that continued paring
of University budgets would end in
"either the laying off of 400 in-
structors or the closing of a
"Nobody wants to do that," Re-
gent Van Wagoner said.

AT THE SAME time Regent Van
Wagoner, who was appointed to
the Boar&by Gov. G. Mennen Wil-
liams to serve the unexpired term
of the late Regent Ralph Hayward,
stressed the need for expansion of
the University's medical facilities
to meet the need for more doctors.
Moreover, he asserted, faculty sal-
aries at t h e University and
throughout the state must be
Taised to avoid further loss of
top personnel to other states.
Addressing himself to Mayor-
alty candidate Louis Riemann,
Van Wagoner went on record as
favoring closer cooperation be-
tween the University and Ann
Arbor in maintaining the city's
services. "As intelligent men,"
Regent Van Wagoner said, "the
Regents and the city council can
sit down together and work out
some fair means of payment."

earlier positions have included that
of state highway commissioner and
more recently, military governor of
Bavaria, told his audience, about

A special student mass at St.

Local churches are also plan-
ing meetings throughout the

Score New
MSC Ruling
Michigan State's controversial
ban on faculty participation in
federal or state partisan politics
was revised yesterday but the
changed regulation was still termed
"a dangerous compromise of prin-
ciple" by one University professor
last night.
This was the verdict of Prof. 0.
M. Pearl of the classical studies de-
partment, and a local officer of the
American Association of University
Professors. Emphasizing that he
did not speak for the AAUP, Prof.
Pearl said, "I trust that our own
Regents are wise enough not to
try to implement any ruling of that

THE MSC RULING originally
called for faculty members engag-
ing in politically partisan activity
to either resign their posts or se-
cure leaves of absence for the dur-
ation of that activity.
The ban met a storm of pro-
test both at MSC and on this
campus, followed by 8 months of
slow negotiation between MSC
officials and representatives of
the AAUP and the State Board
of Agriculture (governing body
of MSC).
The revised regulation calls for
limitation of the ban to candidates
running for federal or state offices
and will also permit these to ar-
range possible continuation of
their college work on a part-time

PROF. PRESTON Slosson, of
the history department, who had
scored the original regulation as
a demand that the professor "sac-
rifice his conscience", said last
night that the ruling was "Very
much improved".
"But if a professor does his
work well," Prof. Slosson added,
"whether he devotes his leisure
time to bottle-pool or politics
should be of no concern to the

Greeks Repulse

The Greeks beat off three Com-
munist counterattacks in 50 min-
utes. It occurred in an area where
the Reds are estimated to have
up to 250,000 men massed north
and south of Chunchon.
BUT ACROSS the more than
120 miles of the Korean front, the
Reds' still offered no large-scale
opposition to the advancing Allies.
And there were even signs they
were slowing up on movement of
supplies to the front.
U.S. Fifth Air Force pilot*
reported spotting no trains and
only about 160 vehicles last
night after shooting up five
trains the night before. In the

to have knocked out 1,100 en-
emy vehicles and 360 units of
railroad rolling stock.
The Allied drive was "going

his return to Tokyo last night
from his second ;visit to the front
in 10 days.
There was no immediate indi-
