that GI's fighting in Korea are
plagued by an ammunition short-

uproar last night.
Senators demanded a face-to-

that President Eisenhower would

Clinch Second Place Tie
By DAVE BAAD
Scoring at least twice in each period, Michigan's rebounding
hockey team skated to an easy 8-3 decision over Michigan Tech at
the Coliseum last night to move into a second place tie with North
Dakota in the Midwest Hockey League.
The win put the Wolverines only one point behind league leading
Minnesota, and if they beat the Engineers again tonight a trip Wed-
nesday to the NCAA tournament at Colorado Springs is assured.
The outcome of the game was never in doubt after Michigan
raced into a 3-0 lead in the first period. The clinching fourth goal

WASHINGTON - (A) - Con-

yesterday that the emergence of

ON CAPITOL Hill, Senate and
House members took a gloomy
view on the chances for any im-
provement in Ea st-West rela-

and the elevation of Malenkov as
the new Soviet dictator.
Typical comment ranged from
predictions that Malenkov will
be even "tougher" than Stalin
to warnings that the United
States must keepits guard up.
Here is what they said:
Sen. Kefauver (D-Tenn): "Mal.
enkov is really more dangerous
than Stalin because he doesn't
know as much about the power of
the Western world as Stalin did."
Sen. Ferguson (R-Mich): "The
new Soviet leadership means a
continuation of the Joe Stalin con-
spiracy. It offers little hope of
Sen. Jackson (D-Wash) de-

changes in the government ,as
thousands of people pressed to the
Hall of Coluns to pay a last trib-
ute to Stalin.
The announcement said the
changes were necessary to as-
sure "uninterrupted and correct
leadership" of the country and
prevent "an kind of disarray and
panic" following Stalin's death.
These changes were announced:
V. M. Molotov, former Prime
Minister, moved back into the post
of foreign minister where, he be-
came so well known in long con-
ferences with Western statesmen
after World War II.
He replaced Andrei Vishinsky,
who became permanent represen-
tative to the United Nations. (Some
diplomats saw the change as a
sign that Russia's UN policy
might become even tougher than
in the past.)
ANDREI GROMYKO, former
representative at the UN, left Lon-
don by plane for New York to fill
Vishinsky's place during his ab-
sence in Moscow.
L. P. Beria, long head of the
Soviet Union's political police,
was named interior minister
and head of the Ministry of
State Security which wag com-
