Cites 'Gifts'
To Officials
Money of '48
Campaign Used
LOUISVILLE, Ky.- () -Gov.
Adlai E. Stevenson announced last
night his "gifts" totaling $18,150
to eight top Illinois appointive of-
ficials from money left over from
his 1948 political campaign fund.
The Democratic Presidential
nominee said the gifts came out
of a surplus of $18,744.96 left from
the campaign plus $2,900 in sub-
sequent contributions from certain
+ Chicago businessmen.
He did not account for the dif-
ference between the total of the
gifts and the fund total.
Stevenson said his financial
showdown with the Republicans
will go further-he will make pub-
lic his income tax returns for the
last 10 years after he returns to
Springfield, Ill., today.
Sen. John J. Sparkman of Aa-
bama, his Vice Presidential run-
ning mate, has promised to do the
same thing, Stevenson said.
By implication he thus suggest-
ed that his Republican opponent,
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhow, do the
STEVENSON said the $18,744
left over from the campaign fund
plus some additional contributions
was used as a special fund to sup-
plement the salaries of eight key
officials who he said went to work
for the state at financial sacri-
f ices.
His list sbowed that Fred
Hoehler, Director of the Depart-
ment of Welfare who received
two $1,000 gifts, donated $25 to
the campaign fund.
J. Edward Day, Administrative
Assistant and Director of Insur-
ance, who also received a total of
$2,000 in two separate gifts, made
a $50 contribution to the 1948
Four Michigan sources were
among the donors to the 1948
+ gubernatorial campaign fund of
Gov, Adlai Stevenson, publication
of the donors' list disclosed.
Contributions from the four
ranged from $5 from a Detroit
, woman to $2,500 from the CIO
United Auto Workers Union.
Stevenson had been under heavy
pressure from Republicans to
make public details of the "Illi-
nois fund," especially since the
° GOP Vice Presidential nominee,
Sen. Richard M. Nixon, explained
to the nation last week the $18,235
expense fund raised in his behalf
by wealthy Californians.

Overcomes Early Michigan Lead
Associate Sports Editor
Michigan State's colossal Spartans unleashe4 a power-packed
gridiron attack to overcome an early two touchdown Michigan lead
and defeat the Wolverines, 27-13, before a sellout throng here
The victory-16th in a row for the smooth-running State squad
gave them the longest consecutive win streak in the school's history.
It also marked the second time Spartans have won three in a ,row
from the Maize and Blue.

The isCallIt Football,
Sir NAw~A First Impressionl


(EDITOR'S NOTE: The author is
a graduate of Oxford University now
doing research at the University. :He
gives his impressions of the first
college football game he has seen.)
Back in 1823, at Rugby School,
England, a chap by the name of
William Webb Ellis caught the ball,
and in defiance of every conven-
tion, started to run with it. And
so it all began. A casual visitor
from that Georgian age would find
difficulty in recognizing the game
as it is played in America today.
Indeed he would find difficulty in
recognizing it as a game at all.
The first simple impression is
of war. Two armies with apparent-
ly limitless reinforcements. fully
armoured, face each other in a
grim trench - warfare without
In the battle itself, life is short
and extinction is violent. Indeed,
looked upon as a game, the punc-
tuation is the feature which can
be criticized most validly. The
whole action of the afternoon if
taken consecutively would last
about fifteen minutes, and the
longest play runs for perhaps ten
seconds. One misses the fluid con-
tinuity of action, the graceful con-
struction of thought and enter-
prise which characterizes soccer.
All, and to my taste too much,
has been sacrificed for the at-
tainment of power. Exhibitions
of power are impressive, and the
game is often tense because the
play, even when stolid, is always
potentially eruptive. The longed
for may occur at any moment.
The scheme of action is inter-
esting to watch as it manifests it-
self in the calling of the plays,
but for the most part the plan is
hidden in the recesses of the
coach-general's mind, or in the
mind of his quarterback-lieuten-
ant. Again for the power of per-
fect team co-ordination is sacri-
ficed the occasional genius of in-
dividual improvisation-a genius
which can fill the afternoon with
But there are moments of bril-
liance. Two especially I remember.
Once yesterday when Michigan
State was 13 points behind, Mc-

accompanied him for the first
time. One could sense a new ela-
tion in the way he ran, and
many who had experienced such
feeling in some obscurer field-
even amongdthe ranks of Sus-
cany-shared in his joy and
somethingrof his triumph.
And thent again, on a; somewhat
earlier passing play, the ball was
spiralled into a distant open space
-I felt like Zeno as I watched its
smooth hyperbola-and a team-'
mate,. I think I fished the name ofl
Perry out of the acclamation, raced
leaping to catch it on his finger-
tips, foiling his interceptors to
reach the promised land. That
was precision. It was laughing at
distance and time and rate of
change. It was the sporting of men.
These two jewels I remember-
and some minor sparklers too-but'
the rest of the afternoon was a
setting of magnificent, but unin-
spiring, might. The magnificence
of a vast packed stadium in the
colourful sunshine, the magnifi-
cence of two massed bands stir-
ring in one fine romance the souls
of a hundred thousand dim little
individuals, the magnificence-a,
Wagnerian conception - of two
wonderfully trained and condi-
tioned teams hitting each other
with such power that sensitivity
could almost feel the earth itself
give tremor.

course. of the 54 years of rivalry
between the two schools.
A better than packed stadium,
with hundreds of spectators clog-
ging aisles, witnessed the some-
what inglorious return of King
Football to Ann Arbor.
Scalpers were known to have
gotten as much as $20 for a single
ticket, outstripping last year's
known high of $15.
STARTING the game on the
Michigan side of the field, Gov. G.
Mennen Williams took a round of
derisive booing at the half when
he semi-circled the gridiron to the
MSC 50 yard seats, escorted by
Mrs. Williams and an honor guard
of ROTC members. The Gover-
nor's concession to political reali-
ty was underlined by the Univer-
sity Marching Band's highstepping
execution of an "election year"
show, featuring a White House,
donkey, elephants, and admoni-
tions to vote. With amazing pre-
cision and sparkling originality
the 135 man army whipped

McAuliffe and wingback Billy
Wells, chewed up 223 yards rush-
ing and 210 passing while holding
the Wolverines to 161 and 151.
. However, Michigan remained
in the game until late in the
final stanza and managed to
give the Spartans more than
one uneasy moment. during the
afternoon. Scoring twice in the
first quarter the Wolverines
forced the green-shirted invad-
ers to go all out to avert upset.
Tailback Ted Kress gave Michi-
gan an early lead with a six point
sweep around his own right end
at 9:50 of the first period.
THE SCORING scamper capped
a 22-yard drive set up by Lowell
Perry's dazzling return of s Y.W,
cic punt midway in the quarter.
Gathering the pigskin in on the
midfield stripe, perry scampered
down the western sideline to the
State 22.
Four running plays moved the
ball to the five, and on the next
play Kress moved behind a key
block by quarterback Ted Topor
to paydirt. Russ Rescorla's at-
tempted placement was low and
the Wolverines led, 6-0.
FOLLOWING Rescorla's kickoff,
Michigan State tried three plays
without success, and Yewcic punt-
ed to halfback Don Oldham who
returned to State's 37.
On the first play from scrim-
mage, left-handed Topor
dropped back and lofted a long
pass to Perry who snatched it
up on the 12 and waltzed on
into the end zone. This time
Rescorla's kick sailed through
the goal posts to give the Blue
underdogs an impressive 13-0
It took the Spartans just one
play from scrimmage to get back
into the contest.
SPARTAN safetyman Jimmy El-
lis returned the kickoff to the
State 30. Taking the ball on a
handoff from Yewcic, swivel-
hipped McAuliffe poured through
a gap off tacle, cut to the right
sidelines, and raced 70 yards for
the score.
Slonac added the point after

After a lengthy discussion at
the special 10 am. meeting, the
IFC voted to permit their EXcu-
tive Council to draft a cnstutu-
tion and by-laws for at non-pofit'

n ileus for the new set-up.
The proposed constitution and
by-laws will then be submitted to
the house president's assemblyfor
revision and approval before go-
ing to the individual fraternities
for further study. A report on the
mechanics of the buying program
will also be submitted.
THE BASIC idea behind the
plan is that mass buying through
a professional purchasing agent
will enable the participatingfra-
ternities to save more money tha
is possible under the present prac-
tice of separate buying, Thorpe
In a. talk before last week's
house president's meeting, How-
ard Walsh, who organized a sim-
ilar system at Michigan State
two years ago, indicated that 3t
might beijossible for the frater-
nities to obtain an average net
savings of three percent on their
year's food bills
Thorpe pointed out that the
corporation would also provide an
experienced and permanent buying
organization 'for the fraternities.
It would relieve the men of many
of their current buying problems
The history of this seventh try
at a cooperative buying program
goes back to last springWhen "the
IFC voted to set up an interview
ing board empowered to select a
fraternity buying agent who would
organize and present a plan to the

State Game Draws Crowd of Ticket Scalpers


* * *

The Union front steps became a miniature market-place yester-
I day, as ticket scalpers moved in to unload scarce football ducats on
fans unlucky enough to be without seats for the big game.
Students and professionals alike were busily hawking the precious
pasteboards up until game time, and getting as much as $15 apiece
for 50 yard-line seats.


PLAIN-CLOTHESMEN from city and state police forces were
also on hand at various scalping spots around Ann Arbor. Local
police reported one arrest yesterday and said state officers had picked
up two other dealers.
Michigan law prohibits scalping (defined as selling tickets for
higher than face value prices), and local police indicated that
fines for the offense could range up to $100.
But fear of arrest did not seem to bother hawkers, for they
openly pinned tickets to their lapels and took on all comers. However,
