Nation's Foreign

Douglas, Judd, Match Words at Hill;

Sen. Paul Douglas and Rep. Walter Judd tangled in an exciting
foreign policy debate before an appreciative Hill Auditorium crowd
last night.
Speaking first, the big, silver-haired Illinois Senator told the au-

Speaking on a variety of sub

On the question of paring

Douglas replied that "five bil-

The grand jury was assigned
to study whether McMillan vio-
lated federal law in connection
with his 1951 purchase of oil
lease rights in Utah from the
Interior Department.
The law involved prohibits mem-
bers of Congress executing or
holding an interest in a contract
with the government. It provides
a maximum penalty, upon convic-
tion, of a $3,000 fine.
McMillan said the leases covered

IN A LATER action the Federal
grand jury yesterday also indicted
Lester Luther, former U. S. dis-

Luther was removed from office
in June of last year by President
Truman, who acted at the request

Truman Sees
Bright Future
For Economy
By the Associated Press
President Truman said yester-
day in Washington that within
the next decade the nation can
achieve a 500 billion dollar an-
nual economy with every family
having an income of at least
$4,000 a year.
* . * -
THE 500 billion dollar output
of goods and services would com-
pare with X345 billion now. As for
family income, Truman said that
in 1951 about 40 per cent of all
American families had spendable
income of less than $3,000.
In a 15,000-word message to
Congress-his seventh and last
economic report-Truman said
that despite some faint alarm
signals which it is "none too
early to note," the prospect is
for continuing "unparalleled
prosperity" throughout 1953.
But the President cautioned that
once defense spending begins to
taper off, the gravest threats since
the end of World War II may con-
front this country's economic sta-
Locally, Prof. Kenneth E.
Boulding of the economics de-
partment noted that Truman's
prediction of a $4,000 income for
everyone is subject to three con-

1. Is our productivity going to
2. Won't all increase in produc-
tivity be "gobbled up in rearma-
3. Will income be distributed
equally enough to raise the min-
imum to $4,000?
With regard to the latter, Prof.
Boulding said "there is no reason
to assume that income distribu-
tion will become more equalized."

College Football
Drops Disputed
Platoon System
College football's controversial two-platoon system succumbed
after 12 years of costly operation yesterday and was replaced by
almost the same regulation it superceded-the time-honored "iron-
man" offensive and defensive interpretation.
The surprise move, announced by NCAA Rules Committee Chair-
man Fritz Crisler after three days of closed-door sessions at St.
Petersburg, Fla., put a finish to the embattled free substitution rule
and gave new hope to the more than 50 small colleges that have
dropped the grid sport.
Crux of the tightened-up regulation is revealed in two sections.

minutes of the second and fourth
periods may go back into the game

NO PROVISION was made for
the extra-point kicker, who pre-
sumably is under the same re-
strictions as the other players.
Committee Chairman Crisler,
Michigan athletic director, said
the change was approved by
unanimous vote of the ten-man
board. "We did it without
thinking of our teams and our
schools, but with the best inter-
ests of football and its future
in mind," the former Wolverine
coach commented.
Implementation of the nw rules
come as a shock to most observers
since only recently the nation's
college coaches voted by a 4-1
majority for keeping the substi-
tution rule the way it was.
THE tvo-platoon system was
implemented in 1941 with the
adoption of a rule allowing coach-
es to make unlimited substitutions
any time the clock was stopped.
It also provided for single re-
placements between plays while
the clock was running.
But "rat-race" football de-
manded huge squads and big
coaching staffs studded with
both offensive and defensive ex-
perts. This was anathema to
the small colleges, who couldn't
compete with bigger schools for
topnotch personnel or the big
Small college protest was given
as one of the major reasons for
the switch back to the old system,
with financial problems as the
biggest evil.
, * , ,
ON THE local scene, Assistant
Football Coach Wally Weber de-
clared that Michigan had always
been for the two-platoon system.
"It gave more boys a chance to
participate," he said, "and was in
line with the late Fielding H.
Yost's 'Athletics for All' policy."
Weber recalled that Michigan
practically invented the two-
platoon system. Playing against
such teams as powerful West
Point (with Blanchard, Davis
& Co.), "Michigan's 17-year-
olds had to conserve manpower
and keep fresh," he said.
Merritt (Tim) Green, 1952 grid
captain, said that the startling
decision was 'not a wise move."
Green pointed out that special-
ists had perfected the game to its
highest degree, making sheer pre-
cision. He predicted a consequent
decline in spectator interest.
FOOTBALL captain-elect Dick
O'Shaugnessy forecasted "bigger
responsibility for fewer men,"
while Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
was out of town and unavailable
for comment and Michigan Big
Ten faculty representative Ralph
Aigler declined comment.
Up at East Lansing, Coach of
the Year Biggie Munn couldn't
see anything wrong with the
rule the way it was. He thought
"it will throw the picture wide-
open next fall."
Officials at the Florida con-
clave agreed that thousands of
college coaches will have to throw
their present programs overboard
and start new planning.
"They're going to have to start
considering now who their best
eleven players are," Crisler said.'
"Obviously, the boys now will have
to play the game both ways."

SL Debates,
Parlimentary entanglements

censure The Daily for its series
of articles on campus Communist
activities in the final minutes of
last night's Student Legislature
The motion vll automatically
come up for debate under the "old
business' heading at the first SL
meeting next term.

INTRODUCED by Paula Lev-
in, '55, the proposal read, in part:
"We feel that the methods of
journalism used in the recent se-
ries on Communist activity on this
campus were those which stifle
discussion rather than facilitating
the free discussion of ideas.
"Therefore, in the interests of
preserving a free and objective
atmosphere, the SL expresses its
disapproval of the recent series
or articles," the motion conclud-
Four separate motions of referal
or postponement of the proposal
were defeated before time ran out
on debate.
MISS LEVIN stressed that the
motion was one of censure and
was not meant to censor The
Daily. Bob Ely, '54E, and Dudley
Chapman, '56, maintained that an
investigation of the articles was
not within the Legislature's pow-
"It should have been obvious
at the start to discerning Stu-
dent Legislators that it is, to
say the least, an unwise prece-
dent for SL to pass judgment
on Daily policy," Daily Manag-
ing Editor, Crawford Young, '53,
commented last night.
In other action, SL passed a mo-
tion sponsored by Human Rela-
tions chairman, Sam Davis, '53,
which will start work on a system
of "fair play" stickers to be dis-
played by campus merchants to
indicate that they do not prac-
tice discrimination in hiring or
customer service.
