Pope Relays
Trial Pleas
New Requests
Receivedby Ike
Eisenhower received word froi
the Vatican yesterday that Pop
Pius is getting "many new de.
mands" to request clemency fo
condemned atom spies Julius and
Ethel Rosenberg.
The second Papal communica.
tion was sent to the White Hous
by the Rt. Rev. Amleto Giovanni
Cicognani, Apostolic Delegate to
Washington. Like the first, it did
not urge clemency nor enter into
the merits of the case.
RECEIPT of the letter, dated
Feb. 13, was announced by Pres-
diential Press Secretary James C.
Hagerty. He declined repeatedly
to say whether Eisenhower might
reconsider his refusal last Wed-
nesday to block the Rosenbergs'
Hagerty said only that Eisen-
hower's statement then "speaks
for itself."
In rejecting the clemency plea,
the President said the Rosenbergs'
crime involves betrayal of the na-
tion and could cause the deaths of
thousands of innocent citizens.
He said they had received full
benefit of the law and no new evi-
dence was produced on which to
reverse the verdict.
The Rosenbergs spent more than
two hours with their two child-
ren yesterday in the death house
of Sing Sing prison, at Ossining,
N. Y.

Gora, Jones Score Double Victories
Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING-Michigan's strong swimming team rolled to its
fifth straight win of the season as it routed Michigan State, 55-38,.
here yesterday.
Ron Gora and Bumpy Jones, each garnering double wins, led the
Wolverines as they stopped the Spartan unbeaten streak at five.
Gora,, swimming for the first time this season, triumphed in the

MINNEAPOLIS - Sparked by
goalie Jim Mattson who turned
aside 34 Michigan shots in brilliant
fashion, Minnesota's battling
hockey club skated its way to its
second consecutive victory over
Michigan, winning this time, 4-0.
The result virtually eliminated
the Wolverines from contention
in their bid for a third straight
NCAA title and left them in fourth
place, a full seven points behind
league-leading North Dakota.
A crowd of 7,770 fans, constitut-
ing a new attendance record for
the Minnesota arena, watched the
Minnesota sextet break into the
lead early in the first period, when
Johnny Mayesich, the MCHL's
leading scorer, blasted home a re-
bound at 4:05.
The second Minnesota goal came
at 9:03 in the second stanza while
Bert Dunn was serving a five min-
ute penalty for kicking. Dick
Daugherty'scored the goal on a
shot that deflected off the skate
of a Michigan defenseman.

IN GORA'S winning 220 free-
style effort, he smashed the meet
record by moving the distance in
2:08.9. He bettered the old mark,
set by Bumpy Jones last season,
by eight tenths of a second.
Michigan's only other winners
were Don Hill, who rolled to
victory in the 50-yard freestyle,
and the 440-yard freestyle relay
team, composed of Pete Dow,
Gora, Tom Benner, and Hill.
Hill barely edged out teammate
Benner in the sprint, while in
the relay Michigan came from
behind to win.
The losing Spartans were paced
by John Dudeck, Bert McLachlan,
and diver Ken Coyne. Dudeck
won the 300-yard medley relay
practically single handed, as he
opened up a gap which the Maize
and Blue could never close. He
then added to his feats by winning
the 200 yard breaststroke with
McLACHLAN swept to victory
in the 220-yard backstroke, set-
ting a new dual-meet record with
a time of 2:14.0, exactly one sec-
ond faster than Spartan Harold

Shoup swam in 1951. McLachlan's
win was even more remarkable,
considering this was the first time
that he had ever competed in a
backstroke event during his col-
lege career.
Coyne again and again drew
cheers from the large crowd
which Jammed the Jenison
Gymnasium Pool, as he dis-
Played top form in the fancy
diving event. He edged out
Michigans' ace diver Jim Wal-
ters, 310.4 to 307.35, with the
deciding factor coming when
he reeled off a dive worth 58
points on his last try.
Other point getters for Matt
Mann's squad included breast-
stroker Glenn Miller, Captain
Wally Jeffries, and John Chase.
Miller fought gamely from behind
in the 200-yard breaststroke to
edge Spartan Ron Ridgway for
second place. This second place
was a crucial one as it came when
Michigan led by only nine points
late in the meet. If Miller had
faltered the Wolverine margin
might have been cut to a mere
two points at this point.
Jeffries polled valuable points in
the 220-yard freestyle with a third
place, and in the 440-yard free-
style with a second place. Chase
had a second place in the 220-
yard backstroke, trailing the rec-
ord shattering McLachlan. Hill
finished second in the 100-yard

NEW YORK-(I--Former Gov

President Eisenhower's "busines

the New Deal successor did no
become "The Big Deal."

that government by a single group

YD's To Open
Adlai Money
Raising Drive
The kickoff meeting for a long-
term campaign to raise money for
Adlai Stevenson will be held by
the Young Democrats at 4 p.m. to-
day in the Union.
According to YD president Blue
Cartenson, Grad., the funds were
requested by the defeated presi-
dential candidate when Carsten-
son visited him in Chicago over
Christmas. Stevenson plans to use
the money to pay off the debt in-
curred during the campaign, Car-
stenson said.
* * *
bluh, '54, hailed the drive as the
largest operation ever undertaken
by a local political club. Promoted
by the YD finance committee, the
campaign will carry the name
"Dollars for Sense" after the sim-
ilar drive already underway in
several parts of the nation.
The drive's major aim will be
to obtain small monthly pledges
payable over a long period of
time, Kornbluh said. He ex-
pressed hope that since much of
the debt has already been paid,
the funds collected would be used

mainly for future radio and TV
appearances as well as building
"constructive, informed leader-
ship" in the Democratic Party.
An elaborate system of district
leaders and representatives has
been set up for the pledge collect-
ing. Nearly 30 faculty departments
and most of the housing units al-
eady have collectors who will so-
licit pledges during the next three
weeks, Kornbluh added.
He emphasized that only those
who have shown some interest in
he Democratic Party will be ap-
proached for contributions.
Instruction sheets and receipt
books will be given to the collec-
ors at today's meeting.,

He said that although he is
certainly in favor of a free press,
newspapers should use more re-

After his talk, Stryker pointed
out that in England any paper

admitted as evidence in the trial,

might even be jailed.

for the small school govern-
