USC Wins Bowl
Swith ictory
Sears Stars Offensively for Trojans
In Vital Triumph over UCLA, 14-12
LOS ANGELES-(P)-The mighty Trojans of Southern California
struck down undefeated UCLA yesterday on two electrifying, long
range plays and won the right to represent the coast conference in the
Rose Bowl against the Big Ten on the strength of a 14-12 victory.
The game-cracking plays, staged before a crowd of 96,896 fans
gathered in Memorial Coliseum and millions of television fans around
the nation, left the watchers and the fighting Bruins gasping.
THE FIRST WAS a 70-yard run and lateral-a 10-yard run by
A--*right halfback Al Carmichael and
a lateral to left halfback Jimmy
V ote Ileeou nt Sears, who ran 60 yards through
free air for the Trojans' first
i Aeh touchdown in the second period.



Action, if any, by the Senate
Subcommittee on Elections in the
state senatorial balloting will
await tomorrow's report-from in-
vestigators now probing alleged
irregularities in the Moody-Potter
race, Sen. Hennings (D-Mo), sub-
committee chairman, said last
"We're not going to order a re-
count merely on a telegram from
Staebler or anyone else," he com-
mented, adding that he wasn't
sure that a telegram fulfilled legal
requirements as a formal request.
NEIL STAEBLER, state Demo-
cratic chairman, emphatically told
The Daily. "We have already made
a request for a recount, and we
will amplify it in whatever form
the committee desires."
"There can be no assurance
that the true outcome is known
unless we have a recount," he
In saying that any action will

committee's two investigators,
Hennings commented, "They are
just starting their work."
ford H. War and Allen Goodman,
have set up headquarters in a
Detroit Hotel and have met with
Staebler in Ann Arbor.
"We have supplied them with
affidavits supporting our charges
of irregularity in the election,"
Staebler said. However, the in-
vestigators have not commented
National attention has centered
an the contest because. control of
the Senate hinges on its outcome..
WITH POTTER seated, the GOP
would have 48 members, enough
to organize the Senate with the
t assistance of Republican Vice
President-elect Richard Nixon.
F The Democrats, on the other
hand, have 47 Senate seats plus
Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon, who
has declared himself a Republican
independent. Should a recount
give Moody the seat, Democrats
would be in control.
Michigan's certification of Pot-
ter's election, by the Republican
controlled State Canvassing Board,
came in by a nose over a Senate
reuest from Washington for a de-
Hennings stressed that action
by his committee counsel was in
no way "interference" with the
Michigan board.
SL Members
Study Issues
More than 40 Student Legisla-
ture members and workers in the
SL Administrative Wing met yes-'
terday at the Fresh Air Camp for
a day-long conference on the Leg-
islature's organization, activities
and problems.
The morning session was devot-
ed to a talk by SL president How-
ard Willens, '53, and a panel dis-

The second came on a 72-
yard burst on an intercepted
pass made by All-America de-
fensive tackle candidate, Elmer
Willhoite, who moved his beefy
210-pound frame down the side-
lines to the UCLA eight-yard
The Trojans, trailing 12-7 at
this stage, scored four plays later
on a short flip from the four-yard
line by Sears to Carmichael.
That sank the UCLA-men, their
otherwise perfect record of eight
straight wins, their two-year reign
over the Warriors of Troy, and
sends the Trojans marching on to
Pasadena for the 11th time in the
history of the school.

THE FORMAL announcement
that places USC in the Rose Bowl
New Year's Day won't be made of-
ficial for a week.
Even before the final mo-
ments, however, UCLA hopes
began to fade. Indeed, they
started to vanish late, in the
third period when their half-
back star, Paul Cameron, left
the field for good, his shoulder
Coach Henry R. (Red) Sanders'
Bruins got off to a 3-0 lead on a
22-yard field goal executed by
halfback Peter Dailey. It was set
up when Sears was hit by tackle
Jack Ellena and fumbled the ball
into the hands of the Bruin end,
Myron Berlinger.
UCLA literally kicked the Tro-
jans into submission for their next
points-a safety, for two, and a
touchdown. In each case punter
Bob Heydenfeldt, and then Cam-
eron, put the foe in a hole with
kicks that rolled dead on the 10,
and the one-yard stripes, respec-
Labor Groups
To Select New
'Union Chiefs
WASHINGTON-(l)-Top lead-
ership of the AFL and CIO meet
separately next week to choose
new presidents.
Most observers see AFL secre-
tary-treasurer George Meany as
the logical successor to President
William Green who died Friday.
But in the CIO a vigorous contest
was under way for the job of Pres-
ident Philip Murray, who died
I Nov. 9.
Although few labor leaders were
willing to discuss it openly, the
question of unifying the two or-
ganizations was getting some ser-
ious thinking. Evidence appeared
to be lacking, however, that unity
would suddenly become a real pos-
sibility rather than a will o' the
wisp-even with brand new lead-
ership at the top of both organi-
The two top ,O contenders are
Allan S. Haywood, 65 year old
executive vice president, and Walt-
er Reuther, 45-year-old head of

ed on either Reuther or Haywood,

Korea Plan
Causes U.S.,
British Split
The United States and Britain
split apart last night over British
support for Indian proposals to
end the Korean War.
Then they prepared to battle for
a clear decision in an urgent 21-
nation meeting here tonight.
* *, *
A U. S. SPOKESMAN said that
the U. S. tried to get Foreign Sec-
retary Anthony Eden to agree to
far-reaching changes in the In-
dian resolution.
TheU. S. wants to spell out
in unmistakable terms the ma-
chinery for repatriation of war
prisoners that would prevent
their forcible return to Commun-
ist zones at any time. President-
elect Dwight D. Eisenhower has
endorsed this principle laid down.
by the outgoing Truman admin-
The U. S. position was present-
ed to Eden and British Minister
of State Selwyn Lloyd by U. S..
Delegate Ernest Gross at a meet-
ing of more than an hour in
Eden's New York hotel suite. Gross
outlined the U. S. position on di-
rect instructions from Secretary
of State Dean Acheson.
. * * *
THE BRITISH insisted that the
Indian proposal for a repatria-
tion commission was enough and
made it clear they will push for
its approval instead of four the
21-nation resolution sponsored by
the U. S. and co-sponsored by 20
other countries, including Britain.
The U. S. spokesman after the
meeting said that the "U. S.
could not _go along with the
abrupt abandonment by Britian
of the 21-power resolution."
A British spokesman close *to
Eden said it was "entirely prema-
ture to discuss abandonment; it
is a tactical question of priorities
which must be thrashed out in the
meeting of the 21 nations."
* * * -
HE EMPHASIZED that Britain
has not withdrawn from its co-
sponsorship of the U. S. resolu-
tion and has not withdrawn from
the group.
The U. S. spokesman said he
did not mean that the British
would formally withdraw their
co-sponsorship of the 21-power
plan. "They will not support the
21-power resolution but will push
the Indian," he said.
Sir Percy Spender, Australian
ambassador to the U. S. and chair-
man of the 21-nation group study-
ing all the Korean truce proposals,
announced in Washington that he
had convoked the emergency meet-
ing for 6:30 p.m. at U.N. head-
uarters here. Acheson asked for
the session and will fly back from
a visit to Ottawa to attend it.
The British spokesman said
Eden's position is this: The In-
dian proposals furnish a basis for
working out an armistice.

Led by spectacular quarter-

THE FIRST Ohio tally came
early in the second quarter of a
quick eight yard toss from the
deadly accurate Borton to Joslin.
The touchdown pass capped a
26 yard drive, begun when Buck-
eye safetyman George Rosso re-
turned Bill Billings' end zone
punt from the 40.
Wingback Bob Koepnick and
fullback John Hlay alternated to
move the pigskin to the 15. Sopho-
more Bob Watkins carried to the
eight in two tries. Then Borton
took the ball from the "T," moved
back swiftly and rifled the ball
into Joslin's waiting arms.
Thurlow Weed's extra point gave
the Buckeyes a 7-0 lead with some
14 minutes left in the half.

OHIO STATE added what prov-

Badgers Tie
With Purdue
For Crown
CHICAGO-(P)-Wisconsin and
Purdue yesterday tied for the Big
Ten football title, leaving the Rose
Bowl nomination a hot potato in
the lap of the league.
Conference Athletic Directors
immediately sent their votes for a
Big Ten Bowl choice to Commis-
sioner K. L. (Tug) Wilson in Chi-
cago. Wilson said he would an-
nounce the results at 1 p.m. to-
A majority vote is necessary and
the secret balloting is expected to
be so close that the team will be
determined by ' fl are 5-4 margin.
IT WILL BE the most difficult
decision ever made by the electors
since the Big Ten-Pacific Coast
conference joined in the Rose Bowl
pact in 1947. Wisconsin and Pur-
due each have strong and weak
points to be considered as the di-
rectors cast ballots on only .one
"The team that best will re-
present the Big Ten in the Rose
Neither team has gone to Pasa-
dena in the series. Wisconsin has
not even won or shared the Big
Ten crown in 40 years until now
while Purdue has figured in five
championships in that span.
THE DEADLOCK developed
yesterday when Wisconsin and
Minnesota tied 21-21, Purdue de-
feated Indiana 21-16 in the final
minutes of the game, and Ohio
State knocked Michigan out of the
running, 27-7.
The combination of results
left Wisconsin and Purdue each
with four victories, one defeat
and one tie for a .750 percent-
age. Ohio State, playing seven
instead of six league games,
wound up in third place with a
5-2-0 mark for .714.
Athletic directors do not neces-
sarily have to choose between the
co-champions. They could take
Ohio State which defeated Wis-
consin 23-14 but lost to Purdue
21-14 during the season. The
Buckeyes' trouncing of Michigan, a
team that trimmed Purdue 21-10
but did not play Wisconsin, leaves
Ohio State a possibility.
Directors, however, usually lean
toward the title-winners and are
expected to do so more than ever
this time since neither Purdue nor
Wisconsin has been to the Rose
Bowl while Ohio State went in
Thus, the over-all season records
of Purdue and Wisconsin probably
will be the main basis for selection.
Wisconsin has won six games,
lost two and tied one for the cam-
paign while Purdue has a 4-3-2
Wisconsin's loss to UCLA stands
as its biggest detriment in the
