Michigan's hockey team opens
its 1952-1953 Midwest Hockey Lea-
gue season tonight against Colo-
rado College at Colorado Springs.
The Wolverines, in the midst of
an eleven game winning streak ex-
tending over two seasons, will try
to make it an even dozen against
Coach Cheddy Thompson's Tigers.
Colorado has played two games
this season, both with Toronto
University-winning one and los-
ing one.
Saturday Michigan beat Toron-

THOMPSON, "Collegiate Hock-
ey Coach of the Year" last season,
blasted his club with charges of
"over-confidence" when they lost
to Toronto, 4-3, after beating the
Blues, 11-3, the night before.
Colorado's mentor was incen-
sed at his players' failure to
forecheck the Toronto icemen,
allowing them to move in on
Goalie Ken Kinsley undisturbed.
jBut Thompson sent out a warn-
ing when he said, "If there's
anyone we want to beat, it's our
'friends' from Michigan."
He added, "There isn't a team in
the league we can't beat with our
material. Our big job is to get the
team mentally right for Michi-

In the three meetings between
Michigan and Colorado last year
the Wolverines won two and the
Tigers one. The final game in the
NCAA tournament saw Colorado
playing on its home ice at the
Broadmoor Ice Palace, lose the
title as Michigan coasted in a
4-1 win.
During the regular season Colo-
rado visited Ann Arbor and took
a 5-3 verdict and lost, 7-6, in over-
time. In the 21 meetings between

The Allies answered with a pul-
verizing smash at a huge enemy
troop concentration area near the
North .Korean capital of Pyong-
yang, 115 miles northwest of Seoul.
THE REDS propaganda brags
were supplemented by the rare ap-
pearance of a Communist plane
over the quiet front. It dropped
leaflets hitting the theme: "Yan-
kee, go home."
Answering words with bombs,
waves of Allied fighter-bombers
winged through 10-degree above

than numbers in building their
1953 barricades for Western Eur-
In the face of warnings by their
highest military commanders that
Europe remains wide open to at-
tack, the council of the North At-
lantic Treaty Organization nearly
halved the program for construc-
tion of airfields, radar screens,
roads, bridges, and other defense
structures next year.
THE 32 MINISTERS of foreign
affairs, finance and defense of the
14 nations voted to build 224 mil-
lion dollars worth of top priority
works, as against the 428 million
requested by the military com-
The council announced it also
had agreed to:
1. Revise their basic strategy
to insure defense of the Balkans
and Turkey.
3. Build up their economies so
they can stand up to the burden
of rearmament.
4. Support France in the war
against Communist-led armies in
Indochina without physically join-
ing the battle.
5. Hurry up the project for the
six-nation European army in
which German ground, air and
sea units would be included.
6. Meet again in the spring, as
early as possible, presumably after
British Prime Minister Churchill
has had a chance to hold talks with
the new administration of Presi-
dent-elect Eisenhower.

The measure was passed unanimously ir! both houses in a one-day

Truman Still
Calls Ikse Trip
By The Associated Press
President Truman stood pat
yesterday on his view that it was
demagoguery when Gen. Dwight
D. Eisenhower announced during
the presidential campaign that he
would go to Korea.
"Your opinion is still the same?"
a reporter inquired at the Presi-
dent's news conference.
Oh, yes, Truman said, my
opinion hasn't changed.
The President had no comment
on the New York meeting Wed-
nesday between President - elect
Eisenhower and Gen. Douglas
MacArthur, the fired Far Eastern
commander who says there is a
way to end the Korean War.
MEANWHILE in New York,
President-elect Eisenhower indi-
cated yesterday he may follow up
his inauguration by making a
speech to Congress on his legis-
lative program and the state of
the Union.
Word that Eisenhower is con-
sidering this possibility came
from Rep. Joseph W. Martin of
Massachusetts after he attend-
ed the first of a series of con-
ferences the President-elect has
scheduled with Republican con-
gressional leaders.
The address "naturally will deal
with his legislative program and
the state of the Union," Martin
told a news conference at Eisen-
hower's Hotel Commodore head-

gan and at other research centers
throughout the country are open-

"We of Chrysler have pride in
the engineering accomplishments
of our own researchers and in their
contributions to the betterment
and growth of America's trans-
portation system. We are glad to
be able to assist the University's
search for advanced industrial
techniques, better products, and
better living."
WITH CONSENT of University
officials Chrysler will specify from
time to time additional research
activities to be carried on under
the Phoenix Project by the engi-
neering Research institute or
other Uiiversity departments.
Stating that the University "is
happy to have been chosen for
this work," President Hatcher
said, "the latitude in research
permitted under terms of the
Chrysler project is both grati-
fying and challenging.".
The Chrysler gift was the sec-
ond largest to the Phoenix Pro-
ject to date, topped only by a
$1,500,000 grant by General Motors
Corporation in 1950 to establish an
Institute of, Industrial Health.
Alan W. McCarthy, Phoenix
campaign director, said he had
hoped the $6,500,000 project goal
could have been reached this
year, but that even after the
Chrysler grant, he saw little
chance of campaign completion
in 1952.
"But it is very encouraging to
see the interest that industry has
shown in this atomic research pro-
gram," MacCarthy said.
The check for $250,000 was pre-
sented by Colbert to University
vice-president Marvin L. Niehuss
at a brief ceremony yesterday in
