ihichiganFavoredin Crucial Contest'

{.)

, * *

By DICK SEWELL
Associate Sports Editor
COLUMBUS (Special) -Michigan's league-leading Wolverines
clash with upset hungry Ohio State here this afternoon in what pro-
mises to be the season's most crucial contest for both schools.
A capacity throng of 78,677 is expected to crowd into the Ohio
Stadium for the 2 p.m. kickoff.
* * * *
THE STAKES are high for both squads.
Michigan has a chance for its fifth Western Conference title
in six years and a possible Rose Bowl bid hanging in the balance.
The Buckeyes are out to end a seven year win famine in the
series with Michigan. Ohio State fans have to look back to 1944 to see
victory.
AN OHIO VICTORY today would give the Bucks a 5-2 Confer-
ence record and move them over Michigan in the final standings. It
would also serve to quiet High Street yelps for Woody Hayes' coach-
ing scalp.
On the other hand, a triumph for the Maize and Blue would
cinch them at least a tie for the Big Ten football championship.
Should Minnesota upend Wisconsin, a Michigan victory would
yield an undisputed Big Ten crown and clear sailing to Pasadena.
The Wolverine gridders enter the contest a one-point favorite
despite Ohio's convincing 27-7 defeat of Illinois last weekend. In tra-
ditional battles of this kind previous records carry little weight, and
Michigan Coach Ben Oosterbaan has been warning against over con-
fidence all week.

CARRYING THE BRUNT of OSU hopes will be the potent of-
fense which has rolled up an average rushing total of 357.7 yards per
game, second only to Wisconsin in the Big Ten.
Directingthe Buckeye attack is so'phomore quarterback John-
ny Borton who runs and passes from any and all variations of the
"T." Last Saturday against Illinois Borton passed for touchdowns
of six and 37 yards to end Dean Dugger.
Other standouts in the OSU offense are halfbacks Fred Bruney
and Bob Watkins, and piledriving fullback John Hlay.
* * * *
THE OFFENSIVE Ohio State forward wall averages well over 200
pounds. Ends Bob Joslin and Bob Grimes at 187 and 198 respectively
are the only starting linemen under that mark. Tackles Jim Hietikko
and George Jacoby, both two-way performers, top 220. Attacking
guards Mike Takacs and Jim Reichenbach also play both offense and
defense and move with surprising speed for such weight.
Defensively the Bucks rely heavily on the linebacking capa-
bilities of veteran Tony Curcillo and Skip Doyle. Other defensive
stalwarts are Bruney and Marts Beekley at halfback, Bill Vav-
roch at tackle, and ends John Manyak and Dick Anderson.
With the possible exception of defensive tackle Jim Balog, the
Wolverines came through the bruising battle with Purdue without dis-
abling injury. Michigan trainer Jim Hunt still has hopes of getting the
brawny hole-opener in shape by game time. Sophomore Herb Geyer
stands ready to fill in if needed.

William Green,
AFL ChiefDieS
COSHOCTON, O.-(R)-William Green, who led and spoke for
13 million American workers in the American Federation of Labor
over nearly three decades, died yesterday.
The AFL president, only the second leader the AFL has had, was 81.
Green's death followed by only 12 days that of Philip Murray,
president of the rival CIO. Muriay died Nov. 9 in San Francisco.

State Rejects
SenateRequest
WASHINGTON--P)-A Senate
committee yesterday asked. that
the official certification of Rep.
Charles E. Potter as senator from
Michigan be delayed, and state of-
ficials promptly rejected the re-
quest.
Potter, a Republican, defeated
Democratic Sen. Blair Moody in
the Nov. 4 election. The official
canvass put his margin at 45,936
votes. The Senate elections sub-
committee has been asked to in-
vestigate what state Democratic
Chairman Neil Staebler termed
many irregularities in the count.
The subcommittee has sent in-
vestigators into Michigan, and
Chairman Hennings (D-Mo) said
the group decided to ask that of-
ficial notice of Potter's election be
held up pending completion of a
preliminary probe.
The election was certified Fri-
day by the State Board of Can-
vass, but Hennings said official
notice had not yet been dispatched
to the Senate. At Lansing, D. Hale
Brake, acting chairman of the
board, rejected the request.
Brake said the state had com-
pleted all requirements toward cer-
tifying Potter as senator. He said
the board saw no reason to change
its mind.

which he rose to labor fame from
his job as a coal miner.
The family said a heart ail-
ment caused the aged labor lead-
er's death.
Coshocton generally was not
surprised. Its citizens knew "Bill"
Green came home an ill man early
in October,nalthough the family
tried to minimize the seriousness
of his physical decline.
But word leaked out. Green went
to Coshocton Memorial Hospital
for two weeks, then returned
home. Two weeks ago the family
installed a small elevator to en-
able him to come downstairs. He
spent most of his time in bed and
he didn't emerge from the house
to take a walk through the streets
in which he grew up.
* *, *
GREEN'S career followed the
time-hallowed American tradition.
A coal miner and son of a coal
miner, Green was born in Cosh-
octon March 3, 1873. By the time
he was 18 he was a full-fledged
miner.
When Samuel Gompers died in
1924, the AFL picked the earnest
and determined native of Coshoc-
ton, by then a vice president as
his replacement in the president's
job. Green put in 28 years at the
job.
Years later, the UMW, led by
John L. Lewis, walked out of the
AFL and started the Congress of
Industrial Organizations with
which Green fought a running or-
ganization battle over the years.
Lewis later led his miners out of
CIO ranks but never back into the
AFL fold under Green.
Police Nab Gang
DETrROIT-(AP)-Police swept
into a downtown hotel suite here
yesterday and arrested 11 men, in-
cluding Scarface Joe Bommarito
and Joe Massie-big names in pro-
hibition-era gang days.

Ike Names Two
'More to Cabinet
Brownell Gets Attorney General
Post;.Humphrey To Head Treasury
NEW YORK-(P)-Gen. Eisenhower yesterday designated George
M. Humphrey of Cleveland, Ohio, secretary of the Treasury. He named
Herbert Brownell, Jr., of New York, attorney general, and Harold E.
Stassen, former governor of Minnesota, director of the Mutual Security
Agency.
BROWNELL, NEW YORK lawyer, was a leader of Eisenhower's
campaign for the GOP nomination, and he directed strategy in the
election campaign. Brownell's first act was to announce that he was
asking J. Edgar Hoover to remain as director of the FBI. The new
attorney general was closely as-9

sociated with New York's Gov.
Thomas E. Dewey.
Stassen is now president of the
University of Pennsylvania. He
like Browniell, was a key figure
in Eisenhower's campaign. Stas-
sen will succeed Averell Harri-
man as the head of the foreign
aid program.
Humphrey, 62, is president of
the M. A. Hanna Co. of Cleveland.
He is a director of numerous large
corporations. The newcomer to the
political limelight is a graduate of
the University of Michigan.
"The appointment was a great
surprise to me," Humphrey said,
"I have been a supporter of Taft
and on his committee from the
first time he ever ran for office."
These appointments last night
and the two Thursday filled five
of the nine gaps in the Eisenhower
cabinet. Appointed Thursday were
John Foster Dulles as Secretary of
State, Charles E. Wilson as Secre-
tary of Defense and Gov. Doug-
las McKay as Secretary of the In-
terior.

Red Reaction
To India Plan
Raises Doubt
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y.-'P)
-The United States and its ma-
jor allies seemed ready yesterday
to accept with amendments In-
dia's compromise plan for Korea
-but Moscow reaction raised
doubt whether the UN was moving
toward actually stopping the war.
Moscow newspapers indicated
the resolution put up by India's
V. K. Krishna Menon is not satis-
factory to the Soviet Union. For-
eign Minister Andrei Y. Vishin-
sky may give the official stand
next week.
If the Russians reject the plan
Western diplomats will have to
shelve it and take up other pro-
posals in an effort to find a way
out.
Menon received the first Mos-
cow reaction with apparent gloom.
He also said he would have to ex-
amine the conditions being laid
down by the Western Allies to see
if they "poison the roots" of his
proposal before he could say
whether he would accept them.
