Barbara Ward
Outlines Problems Facing West;
Suggests Program In Early Talks
Chatting her way through a barrage of questions, Barbara Ward
Jackson, first Mott Foundation lecturer, found time yesterday to
level a brief and sharp analysis of the major problems confronting
Western society and to offer a partial solution to some of them.
Miss Ward is scheduled to inaugurate the Mott series with an
address on "Are Today's Problems Religious?" at 8 p.m. today in the
Rackham Lecture Hall.

Backhaut Oust
By YR Group
The Committee of Discipline of
the Young Republican Club yes-
terday recommended the expul-
sion of Bernard H. Backhaut, '55,
from the group.
The committee charged Back-
haut with " . .. giving financial
and moral aid and support to the
Democratic Party, falsely repre-
senting the Young Republican ob-
jectives in the press" and being
"guilty of conduct unbecoming a
Young Republican."
Backhaut, commenting on the
committee action, said. "I bear
neither rancor nor hostility toward
the Disciplinary Committee or any
member of the Young Republicans.
I shall always recall the members
as sincere and determined. Re-
gardless of the final outcome,, I
wish all the YR members the
best of luck in the years to come."
Defending the committee's ac-
tion, Seymour D. Greenstone, '55,
YR vice president and chairman of
the committee, said, "The Young
Republican Club has always wel-
comed to its membership students
believing in general Republican
ideals. The past actions of 'exhi-
bitionist' Backhaut have required

ed areas throughout the world.
"The Point Four Program of
economic assistance is first

enough. We must arrive at a
welfare conception on an inter-
national basis," she continued.
Miss Ward felt private enter-
prise will not enter fields which
appear unrewarding. These fields
are transportation and utilities,
she went on. "By building rail-
roads and electric plants the pre-
conditions for private investment
will be created in these areas."
The one per cent income contri-
bution would supply the neces-
sary capital, she added.

saw a danger in the fact that elect-
ed politicians are conducting the

cause of their desire to make politi-
cal capital out of their findings.

Earlier in the day, Miss Ward
said England should join the

'M' Rolls Up
Record 99.
Over Purdue
Cagers Move Out
Of Big Ten Cellar
Much-abused Michigan broke
loose from the depths of the Big
Ten basketball cellar last night to
bury Purdue, 99-81, and set a
Yost Field House scoring record
in the process.
The hot-shooting Wolverines
(they made 37 of 90 attempts for
a fancy 41.1 percentage) broke the
ball game wide open in the final
period with a 33-point splurge
that just missed the century mark.
MICHIGAN'S 99-point total, the
third highest in Western Confer-
ence history, erased the Field
House standard of 91 set by In-
diana earlier this season.
At the same time it gave Coach
Bill Perigo's fired-up charges
their third victory in 16 league
starts, and broke a 7-game los-
ing streak against Big Ten op-
By the three-quarter mark, the
Maize and Blue five had rolled up
a 66-54 advantage, and in the next
four minutes and 15 seconds the
Wolverines poured through 17
more tallies to up the ante to 83-
69 with better than half of the
final session remaining.
HERE IT became only a ques-
tion of whether Michigan could
reach the coveted 100 tallies so
seldom reached in the hardwood
Reserve forward Bruce Allen,
who just entered the contest
after Ralph Kauffman fouled
out, netted six successive mark-
ers to make the tally read 89-
ยข6 with 4:15 left on the clock.
Captain Doug Lawrence, making
his last appearance at the Stte
Street sports arena, converted on
the end of a well-executed fast
break and the score advanced to
91-67 at the 3:55 mark.
, , ,
JUST 30 SECONDS later, high
scoring Wolverine guard Don Ead-
dy pumped in one of his favorite
jump shots to put his team's total
at 93, and Allen followed with a
one-hander and a pair of free
throws that made it 97-71 with
2:45 to go.
A chorus of boos went up
from the screaming throng as
Purdue began a' methodical
weave at mid-court. The Boiler-
makers froze the ball for better
than thirty seconds until Ray
Kenaga committed a personal
foul to put an end to that part
of the stall.
Purdue's Jim Schorr missed the
second of his two charity tosses
and was immediately fouled by
center Tob Topp as he gained the
rebound. Schorr put both in this
time to give Michigan badly-need-
ed possession.
court but was charged into by
bulky forward Ted Dunn. The
Michigan center proceeded to
calmly drop in both of his free
throws to the delight of the better
than 1200 wild-eyed fans, and the
scoreboard read 99-74 with 1:56
But that was it as far as the
Maize and Blue quintet was con-
cerned. Coach Ray Eddy's in-
vaders successfully executed the
freeze during the final two min-
utes as the Michigan reserves

fouled nine times in a vain at-
tempt to gain possession.
Things weren't looking so bright
for the Michigan supporters at
the start of the evening's festivi-
ties. Purdue, led by forwards Jack
Runyan and Dunn, got off to an
eight-point lead in the opening
session which was shaved to 23-
19 at the quarter.
RUNYAN HAD ten free throw
attempts in that quarter, convert-
ing on three of them and adding
a couple of field goals. He even-

In his brief, seven-minute
reply to Vishinsky's one hour
and 33-minute speech, Lodge
did not refer specifically to Vish-
insky's attack on the Republi-
can party.
Vishinsky's blast was in fact the
first Soviet assault in the UN on
the foreign policies of the Eisen-
hower administration.

VISHINSKY took the fl to
answer 10 charges laid dc y-
Lodge last week to the effe .t
the Russians instigated the i.or-
ean War and are sending arms and
equipment to the Communists. He
said that Lodge doubtless does not
take his own words seriously and
"The Republican party, as has
been proved again and again,
pursues not the policy of peace
but rather the reverse."

ber of the stage crew for the

Local Police
Hold Suspect
For A ssault
Following a dramatic Willow
Village arrest yesterday afternoon,
a former University Hospital em-
ploye, Benny Thomas, was being
held by Ann 'Arbor police last
night for assault on a hospital
technician Saturday.
Lt. Walter Krasny said late yes-
terday after questioning Thomas
he was quite sure the suspect was
the same man who had knocked
down and attempted to choke 22-
year-old Virginia J. Wrobleski in
the hospital Saturday afternoon.
Thomas; however, has not admit-
ted the attack, Lt. Krasny said.

"Voice of America."
Prof. Barrows Dunham of the

was removed by university Presi-
dent Robert L. Johnson, the new
government appointee, under pro-
visions of a state loyalty law which
requires the university to guaran-
tee no "subversive persons are in

* * *
PRESIDENT Johnson, in a let-
ter to the professor yesterday, said
the refusal to answer questions of
the House committee "created a
doubt as to your loyalty status."
Prof. Dunham replied strong-
ly, "I conceive no act of mine
could have better displayed my
loyalty to this country and its
traditions than the course I
followed last Friday.
President Johnson wrote, "I
cannot agree that this lack of co-
operation is consistent with your
obligations as a teacher and your
responsibilities to all members of
Temple University and to the so-
ciety of which it is a part."

His prediction overshadowed

by Kenneth L. (Tug) Wilson,
Big Ten Commissioner, which
said State must account for
$17,500 which the Spartan Foun-
dation dispersed between 1949-

The prediction by Alderton said:
"On or before Feb. 24, 1954, Mich-
igan State will ~be an ex-member
of the Western Conference." He
said a growing movement is on to
drop State "whose entry into the
Conference was never warmly ac-
cepted by athletic figures at other
Big Ten schools."
As the situation grew more com-
plex, wire service reports said Chi-
cago reaction to the case was
against any lifting of the proba-
tion on State. Reporters who in-
terviewed MSC athletics wrote
stories of offers Spartan lettermen
received from other Conference
schools before entering State.

VISHINSKY acknowledged the

11 nations, including some of
those involved in the conflict and
neutrals, for a settlement, with
decisions to be taken by a two-

Kappa Delta DeniesBid
To Visit British Festival


271 Men Pledge Campus Fraternities
4 -.----- -- --- - --

Reports that 12 Kappa Delta
sorority members had received in-
vitations to Saturday's Reading
University carnival were scotched
yesterday by KD president Betty
Gruschow, '54A&D.
Miss Gruschow was at a loss to
explain the origin of the rumors
which she termed "pure fiction."
She added even if an invitation
had been received the sorority
would have refused rather than
risk becoming embroiled in an in-
ternational incident.
PARISIENNE co-eds apparently
had no such scruples, however.

Churchill should "correct this
disgraceful situation."
The Prime Minister, an old hand
in international affairs, kept his
feelipgs to himself, but an aide
accepted the girls' petition polite-
READING males said they want-
ed the Paris imports to lead the
carnival parade because Reading
women weren't glamorous enough.
The rumpus scared off the
mademoiselles but it istrumored
the French plan to establish a
fund enabling the disappointed
girls to attend the coronation of
Queen Elizabeth II in London,
June A2.

Session Set
Audience participants will be
called on to illustrate a session
in group dynamics, the second in
Student Legislature's Student Cit-
izenship series at 7:30 p.m. tomor-
row in Auditorium B, Mason Hall.
Led by members of the Research
Center for Group Dynamics, the
meeting is open to the campus.
By demonstration of leadership
and group functions, the session
should provide a valuable supple-
ment to the more basic know-how
of parliamentary procedure, ac-
cording to program chairman, Bob
Neary, '54BAd.
Neary urged present members
of campus organizations to broad-
en their understanding of the in-
dividual's role within a group by
taking part in tomorrow's session.
