Northwestern Knocks Michigan Out of Titl



Wildcats Throttle
Wolverines, 6-0
Alert NU Defense, 'M' Errors Spoil
Fifth Straight Big Ten Crown Hopes
Associate Sports Editor
Northwestern's alert pass defense, which managed to keep Michi-
gan from knocking on the touchdown door, secured a 6-0 Wildcat
victory in a ragged Big Ten football game here yesterday.
After Bob Voigts' team had scored the game's lone touchdown
with 11 minutes remaining in the second period, the Wildcats played
sound, conservative football, and five interceptions put the quietus on
Michigan's slim hopes of reclaiming the conference championship,
won for four seasons in a row.
THIS WAS THE same Wolverine team which had looked lifeless
and badly drilled against Cornell. And the result was the same. Every
time the Michigan eleven began a hopeful march down the snowswept
Stadium gridiron, the Wolverines proceeded to throw, fumble, or kick
the ball away. The Wildcats took quick advantage of each such op-











UN Debates
Arms Plan
PARIS-(/)-The United States,
Britain and France won UN com-
mittee approval yesterday for op-
ening of debate tomorrow on their
arms limitation proposals, which
include a call for an eventful
count of atomic weapons.
The 60-nation political commit-
tee at the same time overrode o-
viet bloc protests and shelved
Russia's peace package for dis-
cussion much later in the assem-
bly. Western speakers attacked
the Moscow proposals as old and

A Russian attempt to have
the Moscow plan listed for dis-
cussion immediately after the
three-power plan, was smoth-
ered 38 to 6, with 10 absten-
tions. India joined the five
Soviet bloc countries in sup-
porting this procedure.
U. S. Secretary of State Acheson
will open the three-power case in
the Political Committee tomorrow.
He will explain a formal resolution
detailing the ideas laid down by
President Truman in his address
to the United States Nov. 7 and
advanced by big three speakers
TESTIFYING TO the import-
ance they attach to their plan, the
United States, Britain and France
sent their big guns to the Political
Committee yesterday morning for
what was billed as purely a proce-
dural argument on the committee
Acheson sat for the United
States, the first time any Sec-
retary of State has taken part
as a representative in the com-
Selwyn Lloyd, British Minister
of State and leader of his delega-
tion in the absence of Foreign
Secretary Anthony Eden, was
present for the first time.
France sent, also for the first
time, Jules Moch, former Minister
of National Defense.
Acheson's debut drew from So-
viet Deputy Foreign Minister Ja-
cob A. Malik the remark that this
was not sufficient reason to dis-
cuss the American-sponsored item
first and relegate the Soviet pro-
posal to the bottom of the list.
Hunting Death
Toil Mounts
By The Associated Press
The shooting in Michigan's
north woods had taken six lives
yesterday-victims of gunfire in
the three-day-old deer hunting'
In addition, nine men had died

Statistically, Michigan w o n
the game. 17 first downs, 244
yards by rushing, and five pass
completions bettered or equaled
the Wildcat efforts. But when-
ever the Wolverines scented
paydirt, the once proud Maize"
and Blue folded like a house of
Northwestern scored its touch-
down on the fine running of Chuck
Hren, whose high knee action bat-
tered for gain after gain during a
55-yard second period march. Hren
scored on a short yardage play up
the middle with fourth down and
less than a foot to go for a first
down. The Northwestern fullback
cut back across the middle and
dragged two Michigan tacklers
across the line on -a play which
covered sixteen rapid yards.
* * *
BUT THE Wildcats left Michi-
gan with an opening. Norm Krag-
seth's attempted conversion was
blocked by Don Peterson. The
Wolverines could win with one
touchdown and a conversion, and
the next 41 minutes saw them try-
ing futilely to do so.
On separate occasions, they
came awfully close to doing it.
In the second period, they ran
out of gas after reaching the
Northwestern 20. In the third,
they reached the Northwestern
30, and were forced to punt by
the aggressive efforts of a quick-
charging Northwestern line.
In the fourth period, with
Northwestern playing cat and
mouse to protect its one-touch-
down lead, Michigan penetrated
once to the 28-yard line of the
Wildcats, where the Voightsmen
again held. A last-gap drive with
five minutes remaining in the
game brought the pigskin to the
Northwestern 24. But Harry Riley
recovered a fumble by Don Peter-
son and the Wildcats ran the clock
out, although Michigan got the
ball one more time.
The loss was a big one for Mi-
chigan. Bennie Oosterbaan's game
young men now have a season's
record of three won and five lost;
a conference record of three and
two. Thus they are assured of their
first losing season since 1935,
when Harry Kipke's team won one
and lost seven. At the same time,
Michigan cannot hope for even a
tie for conference honors, since

Expand Tax

General Clean-Up
Campaign Hinted
gressional investigation of federal
tax scandals was pushed on a wid-
ened front yesterday amid reports
that other heads may roll in the
wake of President Truman's firing
of Assistant Attorney General T.
Lamar Caudle.
A House Ways and Means Com-
mittee mapped new hearings for
tomorrow into Southern California
tax matters as President Truman
was reported in Key West to have
passed th eword that a govern-
ment house cleaning is in pros-
* * *
AT THE same time Rep. Thomas
B. Curtis (R-Mo.) stated in
Washington that, "The obvious
next step is to fire Attorney Gen-
eral J. Howard McGrath."
A highly placed White House
adviser had said earlier that
Mr. Truman's firing of Caudle
as Chief of the Justice Depart-
ment tax division "is just a
Caudle resigned "by request"
because of his "outside activities,"
and Mr. Truman was reported to
have said other government ex-
ecutives may expect the same
treatment if their own outside
activities-however legal-contri-
bute to charges against the ad-
NEWSMEN were told the Presi-
dent had his anger up "over dis-
closures that have reflected on
him and his administration."
"He hopes that any of those
whose activities are open to
question will step out of their
own accord," the White House
source stated.
The demand for McGrath'stous-
ter was made by Curtis in a state-
ment which said the Attorney
General "shares equal responsibil-
ity for Caudle's outside activities.
"Additionally, Mr. McGrath, as
head of the Department of Justice-
is responsible, for that depart-
ment's failure to act not only in
the serious internal revenue scan-
dals, but also in his obvious re-
fusal to perform his duties when
the disclosures of wrongdoing in-
volving the RFC became known."

'M' Fans KeepHope'til Fial Gun

Daily Feature Editor
"I'm not really worried-we've
outplayed them and there's eight
minutes left."
That was the way many chilled
Wolverine fans felt yesterday as
they watched their team futilely
run all over Northwestern's Wild-
cats. But it ended as one pessi-
mist predicted: "Unless they get a
big break they've lost this one.",
The break didn'tcome.
It almost seemed the other way
around as the underdogs broke upG
Michigan marches with strategic
pass interceptions and fumble re-
coveries. In fact the Purple and
White men held on to as many
Wolverine passes as did Michigan
ALL OF WHICH kept North-
western's pleat-skirted lady cheer-
leaders and their cohorts jigging
happily, and caused the 58,300 fans
to occasionally drop their blankets.
Probably as.active-and tired
-as any cheerleader, Wildcat
coach Bob Voigts continually
hopped around the sidelines
shouting encouragement and re-

bukes to his scrappy, almost
cocky charges.
In contrast, Voigts' cool field
general, Bob Burson, often calmed
down the play. He seemed to
pause to survey the defense or
discuss the signals with his back-
field after the teams had lined up.
This became more irritating to
Michigan fans as those final eight
minutes slipped by.
ALTHOUGH it held off during
most of the game, snow lay around
the field and in much of the stands,
giving some enthusiastic specta-
tors a chance to snowball warm-
ing-up Wildcats.
The snow-soaked turf sent
many players skidding. But it
didn't bother the band. The
white spatted group kept its linesj
straight and sharp as it per-
formed a new series of pre-game
precision drills.
During the half the band salut-
ed the music school. This gave
various instrumental sections a
chance to solo. And it allowed the
bandsmen to take a gentle poke at
the city council which recently'

okayed removal of the music
school's favored elm tree. But, un-
true to life, drum major Dick
Smith was able to ward off the
axemen's blows, drawing an ova-
tion from the crowd.
And the band got to salute the
authors of "Varsity," Fred Law-
ton and the music school's dean,
Earl Moore. The tune filled the
air as the glum fans left the stad-
ium. It seemed more appropriate
than the usual "Victors."
Speculation Hints
HST Won't Run
Truman's assertion that the new
Democratic platform will reem-
phasize the "Fair Deal" has streng-
thened Washington speculation
that Mr. Truman won't run again
Some Democrats think the Pres-
ident expects the party to make
defense of his administration its
chief domestic issue and will be
satisfied to seek this sort of vindi-
cation without running again him-

UN Assault
Takes Reds
SEOUL, Korea - JP)- A three-
pronged Allied drive smashed
across the Upper Pukhan River
and into the peaks beyond yester-
day in a surprise attack on Korea's
central front.
By midnight the UN troops had
advanced up to 3,000 yards-near-
ly two miles. To do it they storm-
ed heights that rose in places to
3,000 feet.
* * 1
AN ALLIED division carried the
brunt of the assault Allied at-
tacks on each flank gave the
storming party massive support.
The limited objective attack
wiped out a four-mile section of
the twisting Pukhan River line
southeast of Kumsong.
Chinese Reds, startled and
caught off balance, offered only
token resistance. Action leveled off
to only sporadic rifle fire.
* .* *
ON THE Western front the Chi-
nese launched an attack of their
own and captured a single hill
position from a British battalion,
the King's Shropshire Light In-
The Red assault was almost
due west of Yonchon, which is
35 miles north of Seoul. It open-
ed in mid-afternoon with attacks
on British outposts. By evening,
the Reds were charging in waves.
The Chinese finally overran one
hill position, but the British drove
them back everywhere else.
The Reds also struck several
thousand yards to the northeast,

Ground War
Could Stop
All Fighting May
End by Christmas
MUNSAN, Korea-(M)-A dra-
matic allied proposal that could
result in a Korean armistice by
Christmas and perhaps end the
ground fighting tomorrow has been
handed to the Communists and
they have hinted that their answer
will be favorable.
The truce parley was scheduled
to reconvene at 9 p.m. today. It
had been hoped that the Red an-
swer, which was expected yester-
day would come today but the
Communist truce negotiators early
today asked for more time to study
the plan.
* * S
clear that "hostilities will continue
until the armistice is signed"-
in other words there is no agree-
ment to end'the shooting until all
truce arrangements have been
But spokesmen for the UN
command pointed out at Pan-
munjom that once a demarca-
tion line is drawn on the map,
published in the world press and
made known to the fighting men
at the front, it would be all but
impossible to press forward a
successful offensive on either
And so, if the Communists say
"yes" at tomorrow's meeting,. it
could actually mean an end to
ground warfare.

A POOLED dispatch from the
truce site at Panmunjom said the
Communists asked a number of
questions about the proposal and
then asked for a recess until to-
The entire 80-minute session
early today was taken up with
Communist questions and UN
An Allied spokesman said the
Communists "appeared satisfied
with the answers they received."
HOWEVER, the Communists did
not commit themselves, said the
spokesman, Lt. Col. Howard Levie.
"All they did was ask ques-
tions," he added "I would judge
we are closer than ever."
The truce subcommittee teams
called another meeting for 11 a.m.
tomorrow ( 9 p.m. Ann Arbor time).
After mulling it over last night
the Reds had these two main
questions today:
When will the 30-day period be-
Will a map be attached to the
subcommittee's recommendation
to the full five-member delega-
Levie said that the Communists
"apparently understand that hos-
tilities will continue" until a com-
plete armistice is ready for sign-
IN EFFECT the new UN propo-
sal offers the Reds a 30 day free
trial of a truce line while the truce
teams try to agree on remaining
points on the armistice agenda.
The UN offer was made in the
corm of a four point proposal:
1. Hostilities to continue until
