Latest Deadline in the State

Fail To Stir
By The Associated Press
Gov. Adla Stevenson and Gen-
eral Dwight Eisenhower continued
their verbal campaign contest last
night, by giving strong speeches
before mildly receptive audiences.
Eisenhower, speaking, in north-
ern New Jersey which has a large
Negro population, pledged him-
self to a nation-wide fight for
human rights, and said that if
he becomes president, he will lead
it personally.
"If I am elected, I will confer
with the governors of the 48
states. I will urge them to take
the leadership in their states and
guaranteeing the economic rights
of all our citizens."
In Newark, Eisenhower con-
demned the poll tax and the Mc-
Carran immigration act. He also
recalled that President Truman
once voted against lifting the poll
tax. It occurred in 1942, he said,
while Truman was still a senator.
MEANWHILE, Stevenson de-
clared "there is not one crumb of
truth" in charges he said Gen.
Eisenhower made regarding the
controversial and potentially oil-
rich submerged coastal lands.
Stevenson talked about the
tidelands issue at an outdoor
rally at the Teas State Fair
grounds in Dallas.
The Illinois governor told the
"I have been astounded at the
false propaganda which has
beenspread about the effect ofI
the Supreme Court decision." i
That was an allusion to the
court's decision that the United
States - and not the individual
states - have "paramount rights"
to the submerged lands.
PRESIDENT Truman drew an
angry protest from the GOP when
he charged in Boston that Eisen-
hower is willing to embrace Nazi
* tactics to become president.
Denouncing the McCarran bill,
passed over his veto. Truman
said it adds up to "the philosophy
of racial superiority developed by
the Nazis."

West Park
Set As Site
Of Meeting
Paul Robeson and Vincent Halli-
nan, candidate for president on
the Progressive ticket, will be the
main speakers at a rally to be held
at 3 p.m. today in West Park, lo-
cated north of W. Huron, between
7th and Chapin Sts.
The rally, entitled, "How to
Win the Peace in 1952-Now" is
sponsored by the Progressives who
had originally scheduled the meet-
ing for tomorrow evening at the
Masonic Temple.
The Masons rejected the Pro-
gressives request for use of their
auditorium tomorrow which forced
rescheduling of the meeting.

MEANWHILE, Judge James R.
Breakey of the circuit court turn-
ed down a request for an injunc-
tion against the Masonic Temple
for allegedly breaking a contract
with the Progressives, yesterday
In reaching his decision the
judge stated that on the basis
of the claims presented inbthe
bill of complaint he could not
try the case due to insufficient
evidence and faulty presenta-
Breakey pointed out that the
Progressives had failed to serve
their papers in a proper manner
to the Masons, presenting them to
the wrong people, and had not
corrected their bill so that it would
meet the requirements of state law.
- - *
ATTORNEYS for the Progres-
sives, John Houston, of Pontiac,
and John Ragland, of Ann Arbor,,
offered to correct the errors in
their bill immediately.
Judge Breakey denied this re-
quest. He stated that if the com-
plaint was to be re-amended it
would constitute a new bill
which would have to be submit-
ted to the court again.
Breakey also ruled that the Pro-
gressives alleged contract was not
a contract because it did not say
to whom the money was paid, and
when the rally was to be held.
The Progressives then moved to
dismiss their claims.
Later they announced that
speakers at today's rally would
also include local candidate for
congress Dave Luce and John
Shepard, of the psychology de-
partment, candidate for the state

Straits Bridge
Nearer Reality
DETROIT - (A) - Michigan's
long dreamed of five-mile Straits
of Mackinac bridge yesterday ad-
vanced "closer to reality."
The Mackinac Bridge Authority
announced a New York firm's
agreement to underwrite revenue
bonds, putting the bridge at last
in the virtual project state.
Actually, work may start next
spring, the Authority said.
Thus, after scores upon scores'
of years of dreams, Michigan may
have its bridge over the world-
famedstraits which divides herin
two pieces.
Prentiss M. Brown, bridge auth-
ority chairman, said that the New
York investment firm of B. J.
Van Ingen and Company had
agreed to be underwriters.

Michigan Picked

Northwestern Places Victory Hopes
Primarily on Running of Chuck Hren
Special To The Daily
EVANSTON, Illinois -- Two offensive-minded grid squads will
tangle this afternoon when Michigan's twice-beaten Wolverines meet
winless Northwestern here in Dyche Stadium.
An estimated gathering of 45,000, some 5,000 short of capacity,
will be on hand to see if the Wildcats can repeat their last season's
6-0 upset victory over favored Michigan.

Robot Heartd
Saves Life
In Operation
The mechanical heart that
works in humans-one of the
great dreams of surgery-was re-
ported yesterday by three Detroit
It has saved one man's life, may-
be more. For 50 dramatic minutes,
the little steel-glass-and-rubber
heart pulsed a patient's blood
through his body while surgeons
opened his own life engine to fix
a bad valve. The left side was on
vacation, empty of blood.
THE SUCCESS was announced
by Dr. F. D. Dodrill, Dr. Edward
Hill and Dr. Robert A. Gerisch, all
of Harper Hospital in Detroit in
the journal of the American Med-
ical Association.
Dr. Dodrill is a former i-
structor in surgery at the Uni-
versity. He worked at the Uni-
versity Hospital several years
For years, many surgeons have
been trying to develop hearts that
would by-pass the heart, leaving
it pulsing but empty of blood so
they could open it for new kinds
of surgery inside the heart.
THEY COULD THEN plug holes
in heart walls, repair valves or
weak spots in the heart muscle,
take out bullets, tumors, or dead-
ened tissue, perhaps some day res-
cue people whose hearts stop.
The first step now has been
taken into this new era.
The vital research work has
been conducted under the financial
sponsorship of the Michigan Heart
Association with funds received
from "United" campaigns in many
Michigan communities and the
Torch Drive in Detroit. Work was
done in the Research Division of
Detroit's Harper Hospital.

Prof. Defends
United Nations
Everyone from Gerald L. K.
Smith to the Michigan Veterans of
Foreign Wars have made attacksj
on the United Nations but the UN
is nevertheless our major hope for
peace, Prof. Le Roy Bennett, of
the Michigan State political
science department, told the cam-
pus UNESCO Council last night.
Prof. Bennett, Vice-President of
the Michigan Council for UNESCO,
spoke on the topic "The UN, a
Target." He pointed out that the
charges against the world organ-
ization have not gone unrefuted.
Many of them, he said were based
on distorted or erroneous informa-
Prof. Bennett quoted a state-
ment by Jasper H. Kohn, State
Commander of the Veterans of
Foreign Wars which characterized
the UNESCO study program as an
"underhanded attempt to teach
our children that their first loy-
alty is to the United Nations."

'U' To Receive
Cherry Trees
The Japanese Ambassador to
the United States, Eikichi Araki,
will present 173 Japanese cherry
trees to the University at 3:30 p.m.
Araki, here primarily as a guest
at the Japanese Festival now in
progress on campus, will make the
presentation to President Hatcher
in the main lobby of Alumni
Memorial Hall.
Before the presentation, Araki
will attend the opening of a grad-
uate reading room in the General
Library. The room, containing the
University's Far Eastern Collec-
tion and operated in connection
with the Center for Japanese
Studies, will be dedicated at 3 p.m.
The Festival, which began on
Oct. 12, is slated to run three
weeks, featuring displays which
emphasize typical aspects of Jap-
anese life.
Reserve Officers
Offered New Plan
Reserve Army Officers in this
area were offered the opportunity
to gain retirement points yester-
day when the University Army
ROTC Staff announced openings
for officers to assist with classes.
Qualified officers on the campus
or in the Ann Arbor area were
urged to contact Colonel Virgil R.
Miller, PMS&T, room 210 TCB.

President Harlan H. Hatcher
has a pretty clear-cut definition
of what is wrong with college
"When you, try to lure an
athlete for any other reason
than education, you have in-
troduced the element of corrup-
