Game Marked by Koslo's Pitching
And Irvin's Record-Tying Four Hits

NEW YORK--A)-The rampant New York Giants pinned no-

the Yankees, 5 to 1, behind Dave Koslo's crafty pitching in yester-
day's opening World Series struggle.

WASHINGTON - (A') - Sena-
tor Ferguson (R-Mich.) called
yesterday for a full investigation
of "scandals" in Federal tax col-
' lecting offices as the Senate was
informed of "serious irregulari-
ties" in the Internal Revenue Bu-
reau at Detroit.
The report on the Detroit situa-
tion came from Michigan's Demo-
cratic Senator Moody, who said
some special Intelligence agents
in the bureau there have engaged
in "highly questionable activities."
* * *
MOODY SAID the irregularities
were discovered and partially
checked by agents for a Senate
Small Business Subcommittee,
which had been investigating the
Gray market in steel. Moody
heads the committee.
He put the finger on three
key income-tax agents in De-
troit, identifying them as Henry
R. Sunball, Joseph J. Weyn and
Frank Cashman.
Sunball is a special agent in
charge of the Intelligence Unit at
Detroit, and Weyn and Cashman
x are special agents of that office
assigned to steel tax cases.
*s st
FERGUSON continued that ir-
regularities have now been un-
covered in San Francisco, Boston,
and New York besides Detroit. He
demanded that the newly appoint-
'. ed Commissioner of Internal Rev-
enue, John B. Dunlap, be given
a chance to clean out "the bad
Declaring that Federal Tax Col-
lectors have a great opportunity

tical influence,'' the Michigan Re-

enue offices in the country.
A House Ways and Means Sub-
committee already is inquiring

graft in Internal Revenue Bu-

in the sixth.


Monte Irvin, slugging leftfielder,
tied a series record with four clean
hits and electrified the great crowd
of 65,673 by stealing- home for
the Giants' second and winning
run in the first frame.
* * *
KOSLO, handing the American
Leaguers their first loss in a series
opener since 1936, yielded only
'seven hits and handcuffed the
Yankees, almost completely over
the last seven innings.
Shelling Reynolds from the
hill in six innings, the confident
Giants bombarded the big In-
dian and his two successors, Bob
Hogue and Tom Morgan for 10
ringing blows.

Only seven days ago Reynolds
pitched his second no-hit game
of the season at the expense of
the Boston Red Sox.

MUCH OF THE game's drama
was wrapped up in the first inning.
The crowd had filed into the sta.
dium wondering whether the Na-
tional Leaguers were too spent
from their gruelling flag chase to
make a real stand against the
fearsome Bombers.
The answer wasn't long in
coming. Reynolds got the first
two hitters, but then wavered
and issued s pass to Hank
Thompson. Irvin followed with
a clean shot into left field on
which Thompson easily reached

man, one of the heroes of yester-

Power of Athletic
Board Under Fire
Daily City Editor
Literary College faculty mem-
bers registered a unanimous pro-
test this week over University eli-
gibility requirements for partici-
pation in varsity sports, it was re-
vealed last night.
In a closed session Monday, fac-
ulty members went on record
against a "double standard" which
permits eligibility for athletes
with a below "C" average and
places athletic eligibility under
the sole control of a committee of
the Board in Control of Intercol-
legiate Athletics.

IN REVEALING the faculty ac-
tion, Burton D. Thuma, acting
dean of the literary college, said
there were no dissents.
Dean Thuma said the faculty
had instructed him to dispatch
a letter of protest to the Fac-
ultyeSenate an advisory com-
mittee to the President of the

eligibility is placed completely in
the hands of an eligibility com-
mittee of the Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics.
The primary requirement for
sports participation is an absence
of "E" or "Incomplete" on a stu-
dent's record for the previous year,
according to Registrar Ira M.
Smith, chairman of the athletic
eligibility committee.
All other extra-curricular ac-
tivities on campus are regulat-
ed by the Office of Student Af-
fairs and require at least a "C"
average for a student's entire
academic career.
Smith, who was contacted at
an educational convention in Sault
Ste. Marie, said any athlete whose
average falls below "C" may peti-
tion the Athletic Board's eligibil-
ity committee for permission to
He said anyone who has receiv-
ed an "E" for some course during
the previous year is automatically
excluded by a Big Ten ruling.
However, such a student may be
granted eligibility if he takes the
course over'and receives a passing
grade for it, Smith said.

mer, according to Smith. He said
Topor's overall average is still be-
low "C" and was the lowest of,
those considered this year.
The registrar admitted that
Iopor's case was "questionable"
and on the borderline, but he said
the committee members acted
unanimously after weighing all
the factors.

sources said many members were s

plied to extra-curricular eligibil-

Austin Blasts
Supports Jessup
For UNDelegate
R. Austin said yesterday the Am-
erican delegation to the United
Nations needs Ambassador-At-
Large Philip C. Jessup to help
"carry the torch" against Com-
munist trickery.
Describing Jessup as a "power-
ful protagonist" of American in-
terests, without a trace of Com-
munist sympathies, Austin de-
fended Jessup against pro-Com-
munist charges fired by Senator
McCarthy (R-Wis.).
*c * *x
McCARTHY IS seeking to block
Senate confirmation of President
Truman's nomination of Jessup
as a United Nations delegate.
Austin, chief of the American
delegation to the U.N. and a
former Republican Senator
from Vermont, told a Senate
Foreign Relations Subcommittee
there is "no question" of Jes-
sup's loyalty to the U. S.
He praised the ambassador as
an example of "the highest states-
manship, character and ability."
WHILE AUSTIN threw his sup-
port behind Jessup, there were
these relations developments:
1. Chairman McCarran (D-
Nev.) of a Senate Internal Secur-
ity Subcommittee announces that
his group will question former
Vice President Henry A. Wallace
"in the next day or so" in con-
nection with a current inquiry in-;
to the affairs of the Institute of
Pacific relations (IPR).
2. Chairman Sparkman (D-
Ala.) of the Senate Foreign Re-
lations Subcommittee, which is
conducting the Jessup inquiry,
disclosed that Harold E. Stassen
former Republican Governor of
Minnesota, has urgently re-
quested an opportunity to testi-
fy. Sparkman said the requestE
will probably be granted.
In his testimony today, .Austin
told the Sparkman Subcommitteet
that he expects another Commun-t
ist "propaganda campaign" to
break out when the UN General
Assembly holds its next meeting in

LAST NIGHT Jessup, a top ad-
viser to Secretaryof-State Ache-
son, testified under oath at theI
Senate Inquiry that:
"The United States has neverv

that the United States would un-
der any given circumstances rec-
ognize Communist China.
"The Department of State hasa
never recommended to the Presi-r
dent or to the National Securityt
Council that the U. S. recognizeo

To Hear New
La wton Song
On the 40th anniversary of the
co-written Moore and Lawton
Michigan fight song "Varsity,"
composer J. Fred Lawton has done
it again by writing a new Michi-

Along with the premiere of the

with thoughts of last week's de-

Led by the Michigan Marching
Band, enthusiastic football fans

bonfire at Ferry Field to hear
Lawton's address and the new
Michigan song.
Designed to stir up the pep rally
attenders to a cheering climax, it
is hoped that the rally will con-
tribute a fighting spirit in the
onlookers on Saturday's game.
Lawton's previous fighting song
attempt was in collaboration with
Dean Earl V. Moore, of the music
school for "Varsity," and although
it took the composers only 45
minutes to write, has remained in
the hearts of Michigan men and
women for many years.
A chance ineeting on a Detroit
streetcar between Moore and Law-
ton culminated in one of the
greatest songs Michigan has ever

'U' Office Worker
Hurt in Freak Fall
Mrs. C. B. Dudley, office worker
in the tabulating division in the
Administration Building, tripped
over an office chair yesterday and
suffered severe cuts in a fall to
the floor.
An ambulance took her to St.
Joseph's Mercy Hospital where
offiicals reported her condition as
"good" last night.

Yesterday was the hottest
October day in the records of
the Weather Bureau at Willow
Run Airport.
Though the Bureau's records
only go back six years, this was
plenty hot enough for sweating
University students who
watched the mercury soar to 91
degrees. A previous high of 88
degreees was recorded on Oc-
tober 6, 1946.
The Bureau promised relief
by this evening, however, when
Ann Arbor's inevitable "show-
ers" are expected to return.

can National Chairman Guy Gab-
rielson testified yesterday he tried
to get the presidency of the New
York Stock Exchange for an RFC
director last year.
Senator Nixon (R-Calif.) lec-
tured him sharply for the effort.
in behalf of Harvey Gunderson,
a Republican member of the RFC
Board, who left it last Oct. 12.
Nixon told his party chief that
his sponsorship of Gunderson
"certainly creates a bad impres-
sion," since Gabrielson's Gas
Refining Co. then owed the Re-
construction Finance Corpora-
tion $18,500,000.
The implication is that "it was
an act of impropriety," Nixon ad-
ded, "if at any time Gunderson
was in a position to do anything
for the company," Carthage Hyd-
rocol, Inc.!
THE LECTURE took place be-
fore the Senate's Investigations
Subcommittee, of which Nixon is
a member. The committee is be-
ginning an inquiry into Gabriel-
son's relations with the RFC and
other government agencies since
he became Republican Party
Gabrielson acknowledged that
he probably had 15 contacts
with Gunderson after henbecame
Republican National Chairman.
All his telephone calls and lun-
cheons, he testified, dealt with
the Carthage Hydrocol loans.
The GOP chief also said he had
once seen Harley Hise, former
RFC chairman, and several other
RFC officials about the loans.
Wednesday the Senate group re-
cessed an investigation of the re-
lations of William M. Boyle, Jr.,
Democratic National Chairman,
with the RFC and related matters.
Gabrielson acknowledged yes-
terday that he had recommended
Gunderson for the Stock Exchange
post last year. He testified that
he was not engaged in any active
loan negotiations with the RFC
or Gunderson in that particular
Gunderson, he related, was
about to leave the RFC because
President Truman had decided not
to reappoint him as one of the two
Republican directors.
