Reuther Requests
To Have Hearing
DETROIT - () - Walter Reu-
ther,,President of the CIO United
Auto Workers, requested yesterday
an opportunity to 'be heard by the
House Un-American Activities sub-
committee at the resumption of its
hearing on Communism in Detroit
Reuther, a longtime foe of Com-
munism, made the request in a
letter to Rep. John S. Wood (D-
SGa.), chairman of the committee.
* * *
"IN THE hearings of your com-
mittee to date," Reuther told
Wood, "no officers of the interna-
+ ,tional UAW-CIO have been re-
quested to appear before your
"Since the testimony in the
Ietroit hearing has involved cer-
. tain UAW-CIO members and lo-
cal unions in this area, the in-
ternational union feels that it
should have an opportunity to
present its position."
"Accordingly, and by agreement
of the officers of the international
union, I am requesting an oppor-
tunity to appear before your com-
mittee during the coming week.
Singe my schedule necessitates my
being out of town the early part
of the week, I should appreciate
the opportunity to appear on
Thursday or Friday, March 13 or
14, at whatever time the committee
may find convenient."

DETROIT was expectant as the
second session of the inquiry ap-
proached. The first brought a ser-
ies of sensations.
Committee witnesses at the
first session named hundreds of
persons as Communists or linked
with the Communist party.
The effect was almost instan-
taneous. It touched on the public
schbol system, pigh union circles,
municipal employi ranks, and the
auto factory. Persons were fired,
suspended, or forced'off the job,

Illinois Sweeps*
Mat, Track Titles
Wolverines Second in Both Meets;
Swiners Third, Gymnasts Fourth
Michigan athletic teams were always the bridesmaids and never
the brides in four conference meets held yesterday.
Illinois kept the Wolverines from the altar three times, capturing
the wrestling and track crowns over the second place Maize and Blue,
and leaving Michigan in fourth spot in the gymnastics competition.
Ohio State and Michigan State both finished ahead of Michigan
in the Big Ten swimming meet.

a heartbreaking meet to lose. De-
spite five firsts, the Maize and
Blues were unable to cope with
Illinois' avalanche of point-getting
place berths.
John, Ross tried to establish
the pace by breaking the Big
Ten mile run record with a
4:09.4 effort, which bettered the
Conference mark by a tenth of
a second.
Teammate Don McEwen fol-
lowed Ross across the finish line
to give Michigan nine points in
the .event. McEwen also stepped
out in the two mile race to nail
down winner's laurels.

BUT THE FLYING' Canadian's
efforts were just about cancelled
by Illinois' Ocie Trimble and Law-
ton Lamb, who finished third and
fourth, respectively, to match Mc-
Ewen's five markers.
In the day's most exciting
race, the Wolverines' Jack Car-
roll handed Cirilo McSween of
Illinois his first collegiate defeat
in the 440.
McSween characteristically al-
lows his opponents large leads,
then puts on a murderous finish
kick to win. But the policy back-
fired with Carroll, who never re-
linquished his lead to win handily
with a 48.8 timing.

ROSS FOUND that his mile
performance took too much out
of him to successfully cope with
the Illini's Henry Cryer in the
half mile. The fleet sophomore set
an early pace, but faltered on the
backstretch, letting Cryer pass for
the win.
Cryer's time of 1:52.9 broke
another Big Ten mark of 1:53.1

Michigan's wrestling team came
up with one of the greatest exhibi-
tions in Wolverine mat history to
stage a dramatic comeback and
take second place in the 27th an-
nual Big Ten Wrestling champion-
ship here yesterday.
Illinois finished first with a to-
tal of 28 points as compared to
Michigan's 21.
It was a foregone conclusion
after the afternoon matches that
the Illini were going to win the
tournament. They had placed five
men in the final round, and had a
minimclm total of 26 points, even
if they did not win a match in the

WITH MICHIGAN it was a dif-
ferent story. The Wolverines had
placed only two men in the finals,
and in order to come close, they
had to win all of their rempaining
matches. F
That's exactly what they did.
Snippy Nalan copped the Wol-
verines first championship when
he decisioned Dick Gunner of
Michigan State. Nalan wrestled
superbly, and carried the match
to his opponent, who hod prev-
iously , defeated him 6,2 in a
dual meet at Lansing.
Dick O'Shaughnessy also won
an individual championship for
the Wolverines. In a very close
match the Wolverine sophomore
came from behind, and because ofI
his aggressive style, he won on a'
referee's decision.

were the Wolverines who had been
eliminated on Friday.
Of these six five were declared

tensive investigation" into the ad-
ministration decision to slow down
the pace of U.S. air power expan-
sion was announced last night by
a Senate subcommittee.
Sen. Lyndon Johnson (D-Texas)
announced the inquiry by an
Armed Services subcommittee on
preparedness which he heads. The
public will be told "every fact
that can be revealed without en-
dangering our national security,"
he declared.
He said hearings, which will
probably start March 31, will be
open to the public as far as secur-
ity permits. One chief purpose, he
said, will be to get all the facts
available on the relative produc-
tion capacities of Soviet Russia
and the United States.
Johnson noted that the Truman
Administration has announced a
decision to postpone from 1954 to
1955 the target date for reaching
present airpower goals.

Winning Goal
Tech Falls, 4-3
In TightBattle
A lowly Michigan Tech hockey
team gave Michigan the scare of
its life last night but the Wol-
verines came from behind late in
the game to garner a 4-3 victory.
Immediately following last
night's game, Heyliger, who is
chairman of the selectin com-
mittee for the two western entries,
polled the coaches of the MCHL
teams to decide whether Michigan
or Denver should join Colorado
College in the tournament.

IN LAST night's regular season
finale Doug Mullen was the hero
as he scored the winning tally with
less than five minutes to play,
The Wolverines were traliing

Paul Pelow notched his second
goal of the night to tie matters
at 3-all.
Although Tech has won only
two games all season and has
been trounced three timesi before
by Michigan, the Huskies kept
the Wolverines in check all
Doug Philpott gave the Wolver-
ines a 1-0 lead after five minutes
of play. The Michigan center con-
verted a pass out from behind the
nets by Pat Cooney. Cooney re-
covered a blue-line shot by Reggie
'Shave that had been wide.
THE HUSKIES got started
eight minutes later, scoring twice
within 76 seconds to take a 2-1
First, Ray Puro ripped a 15-
foot angle shot through Willard

Then Puro and Lloyd Rautiola

French Cabinet Formed
By Conservative Pinay

PARIS-(W)-Conservative Pre-

Officials said yesterday the bas-
es are desired on a standby basis
for use if and when needed. Large
installations such as the U.S. is
building in French Morocco, North
Africa, are not planned. But even
the limited facilities to be nego-
tiated with Spain will requite ex-
tensive highway and rail develop-
ment and probably considerable
.harbor dredging.
Indications are that whether the
U.S. provides arms for Franco's
military force probably will depend
on what the Spanish leader insists'
on, from his side of the bargaining
table. But American experts say
that available American funds
could most profitably be spent to
meet more basic Spanish needs,
such as roads. Certainly it ap-
pears'that the United States will
urge that arms deliveries should
not get first priority.
