GOP South Drive
Nixon Continues Bitter Criticism
Of Truman's Korean War Policy
By The Associated Press
Gov. Adlai Stevenson scoffed last night at claims the South
would gain politically by voting Republican, and President Truman
told a Harlem audience a GOP victory would endanger what progress
has been made in the civil rights field.
While the Democrats' oratorical big guns were appealing to lis-
teners -generally on opposite sides of the civil rights issue, Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower took a short rest at Denver from his Repub-

Wolverines Outgained by Hoosiers
Daily Associate Sports Editor
A smooth-working Michigan football team successfully opened its
1952 Big Ten campaign with an easy 28-13 victory over an outmanned
Indiana eleven here yesterday.
An estimated 56,500 fans were on hand to watch the Wolverines
chalk up their first win of the season. Although outgained in total
yardage, 355 to 341, the Maize and Blue was never in real danger.

Stadium May Be Opened
To Young --Polio Patient

Dicky Brink didn't make it to
the football game yesterday-but
he may yet see a game this season
if "conditions are favorable."
The nine-year-old University

been confined to an "iron lung,"
had hoped to view the Michigan-
Indiana game from a chest res-
pirator in a wheelchair until he
was told that tickets were not
available because of . policy

The policy against wheel-

The Wolverines got back to winning ways and snowed under the
Indiana Hoosiers 28-13. Most of the 56,500 partisan fans took the
victory in stride, just like they did when Michigan held down top,
national honors.
DURING THE half-time, 6,176 well-trained high school bands-
men swarmed over the turf in their annual colorful spectacle. But
most student eyes were focused on dazzling Sally Geier, a leaping,!
twisting, vivacious baton-twirler.
Clad in orange shorts and net stockings, Miss Geier was a
marked girl from the moment she led her Dearborn High School
bandsmen onto the field.
Miss Geier was good but unfortunately few students in the west
stands were watching the painstaking performance of the other 6,000
high school students.
