Board OK's
1953 Agenda
Long-Range Plan
Given Go-Ahead
More than 30 members of the
Development Council Board of
Directors yesterday stamped unan-
imous approval to the Council's
1953-54 Operating Plan, setting in
motion a long-range fund raising
and public relations program.
Yesterday's business meeting cli-
maxed a weekend of organization-
al activities which brought togeth-
er prominent alumni from all cor-
ners of the country and University
administrators and deans.
A PROJECTED organziation
s since the Michigan - Memorial
Phoenix Project campaigns came
to a close, the Development Coun-
cil has three chief aims:
1. To interest alumni in the
University's development and car-
ry on a long-range study of the
University's needs.
2. To assist in the public rela-
tions of the University and pro-
mote financial support through
r gifts, grants and bequests.
3. To coordinate the University's
special fund raising programs. y
Formal sanction to the 37-
page operating plan embodying
the above purposes gives the go-
ahead to five committees set up
to handle various aspects of the
program. The committees are:
Special Gifts, Grants and Be-
quests; Public Relations and
Promotions; Survey of Needs;
Finance; and Alumni Fund.
Coordinating the activities of
the several subgroups is a sev-
en-member executive committee
which meets monthly and is re-
sponsible to the larger Board of
Directors. Board meetings are
held four times a year.
Speakers at yesterday's confer-
ence registered enthusiastic ap-
proval of the Development Coun-
cil concept and characterized it as
a "broadly educational" rather
than strictly fund-raising project.
Second Board of Directors meet-
ing is scheduled for Jan. 17.

THE COLLISION ocurred Fri-

The Green Wave wasn't much more than a trickle yesterday as

second straight win, dropping the Tulane eleven, 26-7.
Coach Raymond "Bear" Wolf's club has now lost two in a row

again it was Tony Branoff, square-hewn sophomore wingback who
paced Michigan's scoring attack.

'U' Rooters Win Honors by Storm

" Daily Associate Editor
An unexpected downpour addeda
impetus to the school spirit of
Michigan rooters yesterday after-
noon, allowing them to come froma
behind in the second half and
sweep cheering honors by at least
two touchdowns and x "Varsity"
from 6,500 high school bandsmen.
New faces, bright colors and a:
host of cheers-new to the Univer-
sity stadium-but with a familiar
ring-dominated the first half of
grandstanding. When rain clouds
threatened in the third quarter,
the end zones became suddenly
quiet. Raindrops, the fourth quar-
ter and a rush for the gates came
simultaneously, leaving the field
open for University students to
make a comeback.
'With an unfamiliar drive ofI
team support, the Wdtverine sup-"
porters, almost to a man, stayed,
glued in their seats throughout
the downpour. Although they
cheered with undampened hearti-
ness at Wolverine activities, the
biggest roar of the day came when
the sun broke through again seven
minutes before the game was over.
BEFORE THEY forsook the
stadium, the high school bands-
men turned in a 'creditable half-
time performance. They filled the3
field to capacity with sound andI
color. Contrary to previous years,
the dominant colors were not
maize and blue.
Selections rendered included,
two Sousa marches, Paul Yoder's
"The Locomotive," Henry Fill-
more's "Ha, Ha, Ha" and Rich-
ard Rodgers' "Some Enchanted
Although no single high school
majorette attracted the attention
given Sally Geier last year (which
resulted in Miss Geier's being ask -
ed to leave the field), a trio of
girls from Bentley high school at
Livonia was enthusiastically sup-
ported by near-by grandstanders.
Immediately after the half, a small
procession of University men filed
over to, the Livonia group, presum-
ably in search of dates.
Marching Band was crowded pret-
ty much off the field during the
half-time activities. While the

stadium was filliig, however, the
band rendered its usual sparkling
performance of University songs
and gave out with its newest dance
step, the Charleston. Appearing
even more ambitious than the
band's former maneuvers, the
Charleston seems destined to be-
come as much a Michigan Band
classic as "Alexander's Ragtime

After Knutson and Topp col-

No Russian
Unrest Seen
By Hollander
Convinced "we have made some
impression on the Soviet people,"
former Daily feature editor Zan-
der Hollander and two other
American college editors prepar-
ed yesterday to leave the Soviet
Union after a 10-day stay.
Their trip included a visit to
Kiev University', where students
"swarmed around us like bobby-
soxers with Frank Sinatra," they
pointed out.
EXPLAINING they had come to
the Soviet Union primarily to ob-
serve rather than to take up the
cudgels for the American view-
point, the student editors found
themselves "forced into the role
of preachers by questions that the
Russians fired at us."
Other editors accompaniying
Hollander on the tour are Dan-
iel Berger, editor of the Ober-
lin College Review and former
'University of Colorado editor
Mark Emond.
They explained they had niot
seen any signs of unrest or lack
of sympathy with the Soviet re-
gime in the Ukraine.
The students said they had
found that Ukrainian collective
farmers took the Government's
new farm program very serious-
ly. "Ukrainian farms looked good
to us. We didn't think the Rus-
sian farms we saw from the train
windows were so hot, though,"
Hollander reported.
According to the New York
Times, the editors were asked
whether they could tell the truth
about their impressions whet they
went back to the United States
without being put in jail. "We told
them that we could say whatever
we pleased when we went back to
America," Hollander remarked.
"But I don't think they quite be-
lieved us."
