cause of Wednesday night's $1,-
000,000 wreck when the speeding
Wolverine collided with a moving
freight train.
M c **
LATE yesterday, trains were still
running a half hour behind sched-
ule, as two derricks halted clearage
work for the night after hauling
an observation car to Jackson. The
freight cars had already been dis-
persed to Jackson and Ann Arbor
stations, with the more severely
damaged ones stored in Dexter.
Seven Wolverine passengers
were injured and over 200 others
were badly shaken up when the
flyer sideswiped a 70 car freight
Five of the injured were rushed
here to St. Joseph's Mercy Hos-
pital for treatment, and by yes-

DURING the day all section
hands were put to work clearing
the line, as both East and West-
bound trains were diverted, by-
passing Ann Arbor.
The detour led to Detroit via a
Lansing-Ecorse run on Chesa-
peake and Ohio track and
through Lansing to Jackson. The
Ann Arbor-Detroit communter
problem was solved by a gaso-
line propelled coach ordinarily
used on the Bay City run.
The Wolverine's passengers were
taken to Ann Arbor on school
buses, where the Beelliner from
Detroit waited to take them to the
Motor City, where they boarded
other trains.

Oust Jessup,
Urge Trumanm
WASHINGTON - (A) -- Thirty-
eight Republican senators de-
manded that President Truman
recall ambassador-at-large Philip
C. Jessup on the ground that the
American people have "no confi-!
dence" in him.
Jessup, whose name figured in
t h e Communists-in-government
charges aired .by Senator McCar-
thy, (R-Wis.), is now in Paris as
the No. 1 negotiator for the U. S.
delegation to the United Nations
General Assembly.
* * *
ON THE SENATE floor, Senator
Styles Bridges (R-N.H.) charged
that President Truman in effect
committed "a violation of the con-
stitutional relations" between the
Senate and the White House by
appointing Jessup to the UN post.
Mr. Truman gave Jessup a
recess appointment last Oct. 22,
two days after Congress ad-
journed. The Senate had side-
tracked Jessup's nomination aft-
er a Senate foreign relations
subcommittee voted 3 to 2 to re-
ject it.
In announcing the appointment,
the President roundly denounced
what he termed "partisan politics"

'build Michigan for Future'
Williams Urges Legislature
LANSING-(R)-Gov. Williams yesterday urged the 1952 State
Legislature to adopt a "build Michigan" program, expanding govern-
mental services and liberalizing social benefits to citizens.
Addressing a joint session of the House and Senate, the Demo-
cratic governor stressed need for strengthening state government to
more adequately serve the needs of its people.

Young Republicans, Michigan Sec-
retary of State Fred Alger last
night issued a sharp condemnation
of Gov. Williams lengthy state

specific, most of which were hy-
pocritical and contrary to Wil-

Relating to the University, he

panded, the University Hospital

CRITICISING both the state
and national administrations for
a disregard for moral responsi-
bility, Alger predicted that "good
clean honest government" would
be 1952's most important issue.
The Michigan officer empha-
sized that although the year
brings hope of ending political
uncertainty it could also be the
time of our biggest mistake.
He stated that "in many ways
we are already a long way down
the path that has led many great
nations to destruction."
Alger's opinion of Williams'
hour-and-a-half m e s s a g e con-
curred with that of most Republi-

called it the "longest, most politi-
cal" address ever delivered to the
legislature by a governor.
