In an unprecedented vote, Big Ten athletic directors selected
Wisconsin over Purdue for the Pasadena classic after the two teams
finished their regular season Saturday as co-champions.
Wisconsin, winding up with a 21-21 tie against Minnesota, and'
Purdue, with a closing 21-16 victory over Indiana, each posted league

MAYBANK'S statement, made

WOODS SAID he had submitted
his resignation to President Tru-

effective at the end of the month.
Woods, 42 years old, has been
price boss since Sept. 1 when he
succeeded Ellis Arnall, former
governor of Georgia. Before that
he served as rent controller.
Even if Woods had decided to

One special interest provision
in the law, Woods said, is the
Harrison Amendment Exempt-

became effective last July 1.

that canned fruits and vegetables
have advanced 3.1 per cent since

Prof. Eldersveld maintained that

Parking Structure Ordinances Secure
Council Endorsement onFirst Reading
By GENE HARTWIG
The Ann Arbor City Council
gave unanimous endorsement to
two ordinances required to finance
the proposed $400,000 Maynard
St. parking structure in a first
reading before a special session of
the council last night.
Final council approval is ex-
pected to come at a second read-
ing of the proposals Dec. 1. Pass-
age of the ordinances at this time
will permit issuance of $465,000
worth of bonds to finance the 350-
car structure and the recently ac-
quired "Moose property."
OPENING discussion on the or-
dinances Mayor William E, Brown,
jr. outlined the history of the
parking system in Ann Arbor and
went on to urge immediate action
by the council so that construc-
tion can begin in early spring.
Brown said that in his opinion
the entire bond issue could be
retired in less than ten years
through revenues from the park-
ing system. The bonds as now
described in the ordinances are
all callable by Sept. 1, 1954
when the city can pay off the
entire debt if it chooses.

Hiss was convicted on Jan. 25,
1950, on charges of lying under

ments to Whittaker Chambers, ad-
mitted courier for a pre-war So-

THE ONE-TIME diplomatic ad-'

Regardless of what the coin -
mittee does, delegates generally

promising stand made unlikely
any break here in the long
stalemate' in Korea.
Acheson praised the Indian res-
olution for containing the West-
ern stand against forced repatria-

ing that it went against the Gen-

the Indian plan with chill finality.
To Go Before
By a unanimous vote yesterday,

ed to hear the case of Bob Perry,
'53E, who has been accused of vi-
olating quadrangle rules in cam-
gaigning for the Student Legis-
lature, Council president Joel Bil-
ler, '53L, announced last night.
Judiciary action came as a re-
sult of charges by the South Quad
Council that Perry, who-won re-
election to the Legislature, stuffed
campaign literature under the
doors in the quadrangles in vio-
lation of house rules.
On the basis of this complaint
Biller said, the Judiciary felt a
hearing was warranted. The hear-
ing will probably take place next
Tuesday, he indicated.
PERRY, meanwhile, has admit-
ted distributing the literature but
has also questioned the legality
of the rules. '
