McKennell Out
John McKennell, '53BAd, classy left wing on Michigan's hockey
team was "temporarily suspended" by Athletic Director H. O. "Fritz"
Crisler for an altercation with a referee after a game in Denver,
Colorado on December 23.
The affair took place after Denver had beaten Michigan 5-4 in
a sudden-death overtime contest, and resulted from a dispute over

the legality of Denver's winning>
. & .
CRISLER spoke to McKennell
and Hockey Captain John Match-
efts, '53, yesterday before he left
for an NCAA meeting in Washing-
ton, D. C. He also wired Cheddy
' Thompson, Colorado College Coach
and president of the National Col-
legiate Hockey Coaches Associa-
tion that he was reserving final
action until he received all of the
facts on the case.
Colorado newspapers had
made an issue over the incident,
even though the Referee, Mike
Yalich an ex-Colorado College
hockey player said that he'd
"just as soon forget all about
it." The press of Denver and
Colorado Springs created such
s furor that Crisler was forced
to act.
Michigan's Athletic Director
blasted the Colorado press saying
that he was "unable to recall an
incident in college athletics as
badly handled."
CRISLER ASKED for reports
from Denver Coach Neil Celley,
the Denver players and Referee
S Yalich. He was incensed that the
formal protest from the coaches
association was "undocumented as
to facts" and wanted the whole
story before making any final de-
cision on McKennell's status.
McKennell himself comment-
ed on the "unfair" way the press
magnified the incident and
maintained that he never hit
Yalich. Other Wolverines chim-
ed in to say that the four games

played in Colorado were the
most poorly officiated they had
ever witnessed.
A permanent suspension of Mc-
Kennell, the Wolverines second

leading goal-getter with. nine

maining of the great Michigan

Keyes graduated in mid-year.

Churchill, I
Ike Confer
In Privacy
No Report Issued
On First Meeting
NEW YORK - () - Presi-
dent-elect Eisenhower and British
Prime Minister Churchill sat down
before the comforting warmth of
a crackling fireplace yesterday to
chat as old friends do and doubt-
less to discuss world problems, too.
In the strictest privacy, they
spoke together for a little over an
hour and a half. At 6:45 p.m., Ei-
senhower left without making any
comment to newsmen and went
home to freshen up for dinner
with Churchill.
AS CHURCHILL arrived early
yesterday on the liner Queen Mary,
he spoke on numerous world top-
ics at a shipboard news confer-
Among other' things,, the 78-
year-old Churchill said that Al-
lied action in Korea has given
the world a "hopeful future" for
peace, but that he opposes any
extension of that war.
He also asserted that the danger
of another world war has receded.
He credited resistance to Soviet
aggression in Korea as the main
reason for that.
Nevertheless, he warned against
widening the fighting there, de-
claring that the "center of gravi-
ty" for peace "lies along the fron-
tiers of the Iron Curtain in Eu-
rope"-not in Korea.
* * *
BEFORE the conference a dele-
gation of Republican senators con-
ferred with Eisenhower and said
afterward they expected early
statehood for Hawaii.
Sen. William F. Knowland of
California said legislation to make
Hawaii the 49th state would be
introduced in Congress in a few
days and that he had "every rea-
son" to believe it would be ap-
Statehood for Alaska was not
discussed, he said.
In another phase of activity at
Eisenhower's headquarters, retir-
ing Republican Gov. Val Peterson
of Nebraska said he had accepted
"an important assignment" from
Eisenhower in the new GOP ad-
ministration. He declined to say
what the job would be.

lai E. Stevenson said yesterday he

Weather during the holidays
was of an un-winterly variety.
Except for snow last weekend
the -weather highlight was a
thick, soupy and dangerous fog
which rolled into town as stu-

'Court Rules
United Steelworkers failed yester-
day in their effort to get a quick
Supreme Court ruling on the val-
idity of the 80-day injunction pro-I
vision in the Taft-Hartley law.
The court turned down without
comment a request of the union1
for a review of a decision by U. S.
District Judge John Knight hold-
ing the provision constitutional.
Judge Knight, in holding the
80-day "cooling off provision" of
the Taft-Hartley Act constitution-I
al, granted the government an in-
junction restraining the . steel-
workers from continuing a strike
at the American Locomotive Co.
plant in Dunkirk, N. Y.

Bill Wilks teaming up for 40 tal-
lies, hit on 31 per cent of its shots
and had the game wrapped up
from the opening moments.
The winners' margin was 8-2
with three minutes gone, and withI
Ebert counting with nine of his3
22 markers in the first period, OSU
was on top, 20-9, after 10 minutes.
DURING THIS session, Michi-
gan shooters found the range on;
a mere three of 23 attempts from
the floor.
The red-clad Buckeyes went
into some shooting doldrums of
their own in the next stanza,
and as a result they still retain-
ed an 11-point, 32-21, bulge
at halftime. Michigan fired
through four for 25 in the sec-
ond quarter' with guard Don
Eaddy hitting on two field goals,
his only points in 17 attempts
on the evening.{
Lone semblance of a scoring
surge came during the secondl
chukker when Eaddy converted on
a fast-break and John Codwell
followed with a jump shot and
free throw. That made it 25-15,
as close as the Wolverines got for
the rest of the contest.

GROFFSKY HAD just rung up
a hook shot and charity toss to
spearhead a Michigan thrust. He
was waived out on a controversial

NEW YORK - UP - The sen-
tencing judge all but reprieved
the Rosenberg atom spy team
yesterday until the White House
decides whether they must die
for treason.
Federal Judge Irving R. Kauf-
man, keeping an earlier promise,
said the execution of Julius Ro-
senberg and his wife Ethel will be
stayed automatically if they apply
for presidential clemency by Sat-
urday - four days before their
scheduled Jan. 14 electrocution in
Sing Sing Prison.
* * *
HIS STAY would hold until five
days after President Truman or
President-elect Eisenhower makes
a decision. Eisenhower takes of-
fice Jan. 20 and Truman may pre-
fer to leave the decision to him.
The White House seems the
only recourse now for the con-
victed traitors. Further court
appeals are in the works but
have little chance of success.
Meanwhile, to the constant
drum-beat of Communist propa-
ganda, pickets by the hundreds
marched in 24-hour vigil across
from the White House in Wash-
ington. They demanded mercy
for the Rosenbergs.
* * *
FANNED BY the Communists,
world protests mounted Over the
pending execution, first of its kind
in American history.
The Rosenbergs were convict-
ed March 29, 1951, of conspir-
ing to turn America's A-bomb
secrets over to Soviet Russia.
Only last week, in denying them
his personal clemency, Judge
Kaufman called their crime
worse than murder.
The Rosenbergs, in Sing Sing's
death house since the spring of
1951, have steadfastlyhmaintained
their innocence as the sands of
their lives drained away.

VELDE announced that investi-

"There is no definite number
of schools under investigation,"
Velde said, "but I suspect there
are a good many which have
subversive activities of one type
or another."
Velde continued by stating that
the committee is prepared to meet
charges of "thought control" lev-
eled by some educators.
