Attempt To Kill
Peron Smashed
BUENOS AIRES--P)--President Juan D. Peron shouted to a
mass meeting under his balcony yesterday that a short-lived military
uprising had been put down and a plot to assassinate him and his
wife was foiled.
The state radio had announced a pre-election revolt flared yes-
terday under the leadership of two retired Generals, but was stamped
out in short order, apparently with little or no bloodshed.
THE ONLY signs of violence in the Capital were a few fist fights
which broke out among partisans

It seemed significant that he

Bohlen, State Department expert
on Russian affairs.
It was Bradley's first visit to
Japan "since June, 1950. He was
in the area for a week, leaving
three days before the Russian-
equipped Korean Reds invaded
y the United Nations-sponsored
Republic of Korea June 25.
Bradley came out to see the
Allied Supreme Commander at a
time when the Korean armistice
talks seemed hopelessly bogged
down and the Communists were
making an increasing challenge to
allied jet air power.
There was speculation in Wash-
ington that Bradley brought with
him new high-level decisions, pos-
sibly involving new military op-
erations in event of a total col-
lapse of truce negotiations.
In some Tokyo quarters belief
was expressed that Bradley might
have been sent out to get a little
closer to Ridgway. It was recalled
that Ridgway's Thursday message
to the Reds, proposing moving the
truce site from Kaesong to a vil-
lage in no-mans-land, was ex-
pected Wednesday, but was de-
layred a day-reportedly for revi-

A dispatch from Montevideo,

military airplanes landed late

Washington officials keeping a

there was a possibility the inci-

out a heavy note by Peron sup-

"BRING ON MSC'-A near-record turnout of students at last night's pep rally were prematurely

A near-record turnout of par-

night yelled, cheered and sang
themselves into the proper frenzy
for today's clash with Michigan
Crowd estimates ranged from
3,000 to 5,000, the biggest since
the "Beat Army" rally two years
ago. Student Legislature and the
Wolverine Club collaborated on
the sponsorship.
FESTIVITIES began in front of
the Union as the cheerleaders and
the Fiji marching band led songs
pInd cheers until the Michigan
band appeared to lead snake danc-
ing students to Ferry Field.

Former Wolverine player-
coach-regent of the punt, pass

ke, urged students to exert that
last ounce of lung power to win
revenge for the team and a bet
for him. Kipke was sporting a
"M" block tie, and in respond-
ing to the traditional "roll em
up" cries, revealed a still muscu-
lar set of legs.
Len Wilcox, '51, Student Legis-
lature president, also took the plat-
form to plea for spirit. He warned
that an SL committee has been set
up to take disciplinary action
against anyone whose vocal chords
are still functioning tonight.

Where never is heard

Spartans Seeking

Capacity Crowd Expected To Wate
Wolverines Open 1951 Grid Season
Daily Sports Editor
Michigan's football fury awakens from a nine-month sleep thi
afternoon when the Wolverines and Michigan State's Spartans clasl
at the Stadium ir, the 44th renewal of their anciept rivalry.
The kickoff is set for 2 p.m. and will be witnessed by a capacit
throng of 97,239 spectators.

MICHIGAN STATE will answer the call to battle as a solid choic
to defeat Bennie Oosterbaan's defending Western Conference an
Rose Bowl Champions. Earlier this fall the Associated Press ranke
the Spartans number two among the nation's gridiron powers.
Coach Biggie Munn will be sending the visitors after their
second 1951 victory. They struggled successfully through their
opening game at East Lansing *

last Saturday, emerging 6-0,
over Oregon State.
Michigan will counter with an
untried but potentially strong
combination, a lineup rebuilt after
heavy losses from the team which
won six of ten games last season.
OPPOSING captains are Bill
Putich, quarterback of the host
eleven, and brilliant Bob Carey,

honors, the left end for Michigan
