statement of Kenneth L. (Tug)

President Hatcher said, however
that the presidents made no rec-
ommendations or decisions regard-
ing the case. Tlae entire Confer-
ence athletic situation was dis-
cussed at the same time, he added
and each school was discussed or
the basis of investigations con-
ducted by Wilson.

at that time President Hatche

idents' counsel has no judicial
or legislative power in athletic
cases. "It is the natural concern

Wilson's statement was issued
yesterday to "clean up a numbe
of misconceptions that seem tc
have arisen and persist regarding
the probationary action."
He added that it was made o
a factual, not arbitrary, basis and
faculty representatives from the
Conference schools supported the
action following a MSC appeal,
THE STATEMENT read in part:
"It has been established that
funds were solicited in Lansing for
the assistance of Michigan State
college athletics, and that funds
so obtained were not channeled
through the college as our rules
require, so that any awards of fi-
nancial aid might be on the basis
of academic qualifications as our
rules provide.
"It is established, by the ac-
knowledgment of ticket and other
privileges accorded the donors to

SPA Peace
Panel Urges
Continuation of negotiations by
world powers as a possible means
of achieving peace was advanced
by three faculty members yester-
Speaking on a Society for Peace-
ful Alternatives faculty discus-
sion panel, Prof. Preston Slosson
of the history department, Emeri-

tus Prof. John F. Shepard of the
psychology department and Prof.
Kenneth Boulding of the econom-
ics department all agreed that
negotiations were among the best
ways of gaining peace.
PROF. SLOSSON opened the
-Tdiscussion by pointing out that
three of the main causes of war
were fear, anger and greed. He
said that the aggressor in the
twentieth century will not make
war until he feels that the odds
are for him.
"The only way to gain a last-
ing peace," continued Prof. Slos-
son, "would be to create a super-
national state."
Prof. Boulding emphasized that
national defense leads to an arm-
ament race, which in turn leads
to war. "The problem of dimin-
ishing war," the professor said,
"Is a nroblem of social science."

Syngman 1Rhee
Calls on UN
For offensive
By The Associated Press
South Korean president Syng-
man Rhee called on the United
Nations to end "the stalemated
war which helps no one but our
enemies" in a speech in Seoul
An estimated 20,000 South Kor-.
eans jammed around Seoul's burn-
ed-out capitol building and cheer-
ed Rhee's clear call for a UN of-
fensive in Korea. The ailing presi-
dent's speech was read by an aide
over a battery of microphones.
It was the high point of the
celebration observing the 34th an-
niversary of Korea's declaration
of independence from Japan.

MEANWHILE, on the eve of
another anniversary-the third
year since Generalissimo Chiang
Kai-Shek resumed Presidency of
the Republic of China-the Na-
tionalist leader called for mobili-
zation of Formosa and the rest of
Free China.
He asked for a full mobilization
of Formosan and Chinese man-
power and resources and for speed-
ed united efforts for recovery of
the Chinese Communist mainland
in the near future.
Chiang's 7,000 word statement
was his- first since President Eis-
enhower lifted the ban on opera-
tions by Nationalist military forces
against the Reds.

afford not to.
Miss Coleman added that
British 'philosopher Bertrand
Russell might be provoked to
write against such legislation on
the grounds that it would induce
men to marry hastily and with-
out due consideration. "The
prospect of being made the butt
of Lord Russell's wit should give
pause to anyone," she 'exclaimed.
Prof. Marvin Felheim of the
English department pointed out
that bachelors are already suffi-
ciently taxed by not being allowed
income tax deductions. Prof. Fel-
heim added, however, that al-
though he is by no means a mis-
ogynist he feels his "mild privi-
leges" are worth paying for.
One student from Arkansas, who
declined to be named, "thought
the whole thing was silly."

Michigan's swimmers wrote a
brilliant conclusion to their per-
fect dual meet season yesterday
afternoon when they outlasted the
powerful Ohio State Buckeyes, 50-
43, in the Intramural Pool.
A packed house of more than a
thousand persons saw Matt Mann's
Wolverines achieve their first vic-
tory over the Scarlet and Gray
since 1949.
THE MEN of Mike Peppe cap-
tured six events, but even a per-
formance of that caliber was not'
enough to offset the vaunted depth
which carried the Maize and Blue
to its eighth and biggest dual meet'
triumph of the campaign.
Brightest of all the Michigan
stars who shone in victory was
Sophomore diver Jimmy Wal-
ters. The lithe lad from Kenil-
worth, Ill., sprung a startling
upset by coming in ahead of
Ohio's great Morley Shapiro in
the fancy diving. Walters placed
second to the Buckeyes' incom-
parable Bob Clotworthy, beating
Shapiro by 1.55 points.
Walters' coming of age as a
diver bodes well for Michigan in
next week's conference meet. Last
year, the Wolverines were com-
pletely shut out as Clotworthy
and Shapiro dove to Big Ten glory
for Ohio State,
DON HILL, with two firsts, in-
cluding a pool record-setting ef-
fort of 22.5 in th e50 yard free-
style, and Burwell "Bumpy" Jones,
with one first and a pair of sec-
onds, were the big point men who
helped the Maize and Blue to vic-1
tory over the power-laden Ohio-'
Hill also anchored the 40
yard freestyle relay quartet
which cinched the triumph in
the last event of the meet. Go.
ing into the relay, an Ohio vic-
tory wduld have made the final
score 47-46 in favor of the Co-
lumbus crew.
After first man Johnny Ries'
kept even with Ohio's Keith Cly-
mer, Tom Benner put the race
and the meet on ice by swimming
away from Jorgen Birkeland on
the second leg of the relay. Given
a substantial lead by Benner, Ron
Gora and Hill lengthened the ad-
vantage and finished twenty yards
in front.
JONES, along with team-mate
Gora and Ohio's sensational dis-
tance star Ford Konno, put on
the outstanding race of the after-
noon from the spectator stand-
point. The three entrants churned
into the final 20 yards of the 220
freestyle almost abreast, but Kon-
no managed to nip Jones by an
eyelash to take the laurels.

both teams being turned back sev-

The first period went by with-
out a score, with the Wolverines

the UN lines all across the Korean

The Reds were hurled back in aI

Aged Leader'
Calls Special
Shah Maintains
Opposition Post
By The Associated dress
Mobs supporting the young
Shah and Iran's powerful old
Moslem religious leader Ayatullah
Kashani, crashed down the gates
of Premier Mohammed Mossa-
degh's home yesterday with a jeep
and forced the aged premier to
flee to Parliament.
His escape was made under cov-
ering gunfire of his residence?
THE MOBS descending upon
Mgssadegh's home had come from
the Shah's palace, where they
forced the young ruler with pa-.
triotic pleas to cancel plans for
leaving the country Saturday.
Mossadegh took refuge first in
the adjoining offices of the U.S.
government's Point Four Pro-
gram, and. then in the usually
inviolate Parliament building.
In rapid order:

cabinet meeting during his flight.

youthful Shah appeare to be a
touch-and-go affair,
(There were reports abroad that
the 33-year-old monarch had in-
tended to abdicate, but Tehran
dispatches did not say so directly.)
The Shah has tried to remain
aloof from politics, in the tra-
dition of modern constitutional'
monarchs, ever since Mossa-
degh's Nationalist bloc came in-
to power and brought on the
issue of oil nationalization.
Demonstrations in Tehran have
been watched closely by officials
in Washington for any evidence
that they might lead to a politi-
cal upheaval, according to Asso-
ciated Press analyst John High-
tower, because any upsurge of
Communist political power there
would threaten the security of the
whole world.
