Fouad Hints
Egypt Has'
Groups Formed
To Fight British
CAIRO-OIP)--Egypt's Interior
Minister, Fouad Serag El Din
Pasha, said yesterday he under-
stands clandestine Egyptian "Lib-
eration Battalions" are being
formed as a result of nationalistic
fervor generated by the British-
Egyptian crisis.
But Serag El Din said the grow-
ing organization "is a national
movement which does not concern
the government." He sidestepped
the issue by saying he was not
"officially aware" of the move-
The minister flatly denied re-
ports that the Egyptian army is
! supplying arms to the under-
ground organization. He said if
the battalions are getting arms, it
is being done secretly. According
to Egyptian law no' person can
carry arms without special per-
mission. Such permission is grant-
ed to individuals on the merits of
each case, but not to organizations.
THE pro-government newspaper
1 \Al Misri said several days ago that
the "Liberation Battalions" were
being formed and trained by Gen.
Aziz El Misri, prewar commander-
in-chief of the Egyptian Army
who was jailed by the British dur-
ing World War II on charges he
was planning to join the Axis.
Serag El Din also told news-
men the Egyptian version of a
shooting today in which a wom-
an was killed and several other
Egyptians wounded. The British
earlier had issued their own ver-
sion of the incident.
The British and Egyptians
agreed that an Egyptian woman
had been killed at a roadblock at'
Tel El Kebir.

GAME SIDELIGHT-Bill Putich, the Wolverine's hard running tail-back dons a new jersey in front
of 86,000 people in Saturday's game. The jersey's sleeve was ripped off by an overanxious Minne-
sota player as he was tryingto tackle Putich. After attempting several plays with a bare right
arm, Putich accepted first aid from bench in the form of a whole shirt. A huddle composed of
referees and coaches shielded his quick change. No damage was done, however, as the Wolverines
ripped the Gophers apart to the tune of 54 to 27.

said yesterday 15,000 persons have

LANSING - Approving prelim-
inary plans for the 1952 March of
Dimes campaign, Co-chairmen
agreed yesterday that - Michigan
should raise $1,500,000.

When the decision will be made
is not known, according to Iverson.

THE PROBLEM was turned over
to Iverson by Attorney General
Frank G. Millard, who received a
letter last week protesting the Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion barrier against grid video
which the University and MSC
have complied with.
The letter, sent by state Sen.
Donald W. Gilbert, claimed the
NCAA ban is in restraint of
trade. It pointed out the ruling
applies to two Michigan tax-
supported institutions while
Michigan voters and taxpayers
have no control over the NCAA.
Sen. Gilbert, a Republican and
former Saginaw prosecutor, wrte
that there have been "rumors of
persons instrumental in the re-

striction of these broadcasts who
have been motivated for personal
gain and profit, contrary to the
public interest."

MEANWHILE Dr. Hugh Willett,
President of the National Col-
legiate Athletic Association, said
yesterday in California that the
NCAA "has no doubts as to the
legality of the regulations which
limits the telecasting of college
"We have secured the best legal
counsel obtainable and have spent-
thousands of dollars in a scientific
survey to determine the effect of
live television on intercollegiate
football," he said.
"Television is the biggest prob-
lem before the NCAA today. The
object of our survey is to see how
much television is possible without
hurting the game."
