RIDE GOETH BEFORE FALL:
Cheerleader Finds Unicycling No

Players' Set
Production

Warren Blasts Kefauver
At Governors' Conference

By MIKE SCHERER
Sitting on top of the world is
easy compared to staying on top
of a unicycle for long, claims
Duncan Erley, '52E.
Erley, a varsity cheerleader,
put on a one-man show last Sat-
urday when he and his blue and
gold unicycle made their debut
before the Michigan State game.
* * *,
HIS PERFORMANCE was
marred slightly by a rather violent
fall from the precarious one-'
wheeler, but he claims the tumble
was intentional. "It was all in
the act," he said, "but that field is
harder than-I thought."
Erley plans to put on an even
better show this Saturday when
2,280 high school cheerleaders
invade Ann Arbor for the Mich-
igan-Stanford game. The pep
leaders will sit in the end zones
and assist Coach Newt Loken's
Varsity yell-getters cheer the
Maize and Blue to victory.
Erley claims that every spring
for eight years he has had some
sort of urge to master the art of
riding a unicycle. Last May he
found one for sale and began to
realize his ambition.
THE FIRST few weeks were
marked by numerous spills as he
pedalled back and forth on Hill
Street. Once he fell and broke a
pedal, halting the practice ses-
Sions for a week.
Erley claims that his desire

LICENSE TROUBLES--Ann Arbor City Clerk Fred J. Looker
(right) scratches his head in wonder as he searches for a statute
licensing unicycles as Duncan Erley, '52E, watches. Erley was
seeking a license for the vehicle he will ride Saturday at the
Michigan-Stanford game.
* * * * * *

to ride the unicycle has ebbed
slightly since the coming of fall,
but he will persist in his pre-
game entertainment. His latest
ambition is to ride the cycle
while juggling three duck pins,
which he hopes to do before
football season is over.
Yesterday Erley ran into diffix
culties when he applied for a li-
cense at the office of Ann Arbor
Ctiy Clerk Fred J. Looker. There
were no unicycle applications to
be found in the clerk's office.

BESIDES, THE vehicle was not
equipped with brakes, lights, re-
flectors and other required safety
equipment. It was suggested that
Erley fill out half a bicycle li-
cense application,
The problem was solved when
City Clerk Looker suggested that
a license wouldn't be required if
he stayed off city streets. Erley
promised that he would confine
his riding to stadiums and Lrater-
nity house living rooms, and went
pedalling merrily up Huron
Street.

Opening at the Lydia Mendels-

story concerns the efforts of two
middle-aged ladies, the "two blind
mice," to perpetuate the long-
abolished Federal Office of Medi-
cinal Herbs.
CREATED BY Theodore Roose-
velt and the late husband of one
of the mice," the office is being
threatened by annihilation by an
irate senator, played by Gene Bohi,
who abolished the office, and a
four-man commission represent-
ing the Department of State, the
Army, Navy and Air Force, por-
trayed respectively by Joseph Ga-
don, Mickey Walker, Maurice
Heller ahd Jim Miller.
The predicament is resolved
by a mischievous newspaper-
man, Roy Strozzi, with the aid
of his ex-wife, Barbara Enelow.
Playing the title roles will be
Ann Husselman and Marie Gilson.
Among the members of the sup-
porting cast are a Dixie rhumba
teacher who rents one of the spare
offices, Ann Beale; her bashful
pupil, Mitch Cahill; Dr. Henry
McGill, fiance of the ex-wife, Ed
Prenner.
ALSO APPEARING are the
newspaperman's former editor,
Jim Brodhead; the senator's naive
nephew, Richard Rosenfeld, and
Dave Edwards as an ex-marine
sargeant. now running a parking
lot.

open. One is a pants presser
who rents the office next to the
rhumba teacher, and the other
two are a curious mailman and
a visitor who returns at inter-
vals to have his car parked,
Also needed are men for the
promotions staff, headed byJames
E. Brodhead, who will distribute
posters and take part in a limtied
publicity campaign starting next
week.
Law BooKs
Contribute Aid
To Research
Three books published by the
Law School in the last three
months constitute one of the most
important additions made to legal
research during the past summer,
according to Dean E. Blythe Sta-
son.
Published as a part of the Law
School Research Program, the
books were financed with funds
donated from the William W.
Cook Endowment Fund. Two of
them were writtenbydUniversity
professors.
"Administrative Agencies and
the Courts" by Prof. Frank E.
Cooper, visiting professor of Law,
was published early in August,
and "Our Legal System and How
It Operates" by Prof. Burke Shar-
tel was released on Sept. 1.
Prof. Shartel's book is designed
for use by freshmen, and presents
the basic structure and functions
of our legal system.
The third book published un-
der the Legal Research program
presents the first in a series of
collections of Summer Institute
lectures. The volume, "The Con-
flict of Laws and International
Contracts," is a compilation of
the lectures of ten distinguished
legal scholars from all parts of
the world.

GATLINBURG, Tenn. -- (1) -
Gov. Fuller Warren of Florida de-
nounced Sen. Estes Kefauver (D-
Tenn.) yesterday as a "madly am-
bitious political shyster," but Re-
publican Gov. Val Peterson of Ne-
braska called the Tennessean a
"grand American."
Warren's outburst came in the
final session of the 43rd annual
Governor's Conference as the state
officials were discussing problems
of organized gambling and crime.
* * *
GOVERNORS of several Mid-
western states also met briefly yes-
terday, to form a regional confer-
ence of governors. Michigan's Gov.
G. Mennen Williams was elected
chairman of the group.
No name was selected for the
group, and Williams said the or-
ganization will be open to gov-
ernors of neighboring states who
want to come in.
At the Governors' Conference in
Tennessee, Warren did not call
Kefauver by name, but he left no
doubt he was hitting at the Ten-
nessean with such terms as "that
ambition-crazed Caesar" and that
"shyster politician who is running
desperately and, I believe, futilely
for the Vice-Presidency of the
United States."
* * *
KEFAUVER headed the Senate
Investigating Committee which re-
ported that Florida was one of the
major centers of organized gam-
bling and crime in the United
States. The report indirectly point-
ed a critical finger at Warren.
Warren later told reporters he
had meant to say Kefauver was
running for the Prlesidency.
The Florida Governor's attack
on Kefauver-one ,,f several he
has made since the crime investi-
gation-was quickly answered by
Peterson who said it grieved him
to hear "this attack on Senator
Kefauver:"
"SENATOR Kefauver is a grand
American and he and other mem-
bers of the Senate Committee did
a grand job," Peterson said.
A short time later the gover-
nors elected Peterson chairman
of the conference to succeed
Gov. Frank J. Lausche, Ohio
Democrat.
The next convention may be
held next spring, possibly at Gla-
cier or Yellowstone National Park.

THE GOVERNORS began head-
ing for home after adopting a
series of resolutions including a

OK'd by UN
Committee

"Buzz," Chi Phi Fraternity's
three year old boxer mascot, has
been banned from Ann Arbor
streets forever, destined like "Ma-
jor," Lambda Chi Alpha's mascot,
to go the way of all old dogs.
Agreement of the fraternity to
find a new home for the dog out-
side of Ann Arbor resulted from
a complaint by Officer Walter E.
Schmid of the Ann Arbor Police
Department.

Scrugg S Gets
Borden TPrize
Jack G. Scruggs, '51P, was
awarded the $300 Borden scholar-
ship at an annual assembly held
by pharmacy students Tuesday.
The award is made to the phar-
macy senior who has the highest
scholastic average preceding the
senior year.
Speakers at the assembly were
Dean Thomas D. Rowe, Alfred
Germer, president of the senior
class of the pharmacy school;
Shirley Wood, president of the stu-
dent branch of the American
Pharmaceutical Association; John
Kathe, president of the Union;
and K. Kitaaki, president of the
local chapter of the Rho Chi so-
ciety, national pharmacy honor-

call for Congress to make "ade-
quate provision for a well-conceiv-
ed civil defense program."
This resolution also urged a
program of indemnity for civil r
defense workers who might be
killed in line of duty.
The conference formally ap-
pealed to Congress to give the
states the right to determine whe-
ther relief rolls shall be published.
A nti-War Pla.n

was riding his three-wheel motor-
cycle on S. University. The dog
reportedly chased him, and twice
attempted to bite his left leg. Of-
ficer Schmid asked that the dog
be shot for "vicious habits."
Shortly before the case was
to appear before Judge Francis
L. O'Brien in the Ann Arbor
Municipal Court, attorneys for
both the fraternity and the city,
along with representatives from
Ann Arbor Police Department
agreed to settle the case out of
court.
The settlement came on condi-
tion the fraternity find a new
home for "Buzz"-more formally
known as "Jessellen's the Viking"
--outside the city.
At the Chi Phi house, Norm
Spencer, '52E, said last night that
no definite home for the dog had
yet been found, but that "Buzz"
would probably accept an .nvita-
tion to stay with a brother's f am-
ily in Saginaw.

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.-'}_-
A broad scheme of quick collective
action by all nations against ag-
gression was given UN committee
approval yesterday.
The plan of the UN Committee
on Collective Measures, in brief,
:alls for:
1. Use of regional defense
forces, such as the North Atlantic
Pact forces, for defense against
aggression if asked by the UN.
2. Creation of an executive
military authority made up of a
state or states which would direct
the military forces against the
aggressor.
3. Political measures, such as
appeals to the parties to negoti-
ate their dispute, severance of re-
lations with an offending state, or
its suspension or expulsion from
the UN.
4. Complete cooperation by UN
bodies on economic and financial
restrictions against an aggressor.
5. All countries, whether UN '
members or not, should support
collective measures and come
quickly to the aid of an attacked
state.
