Minnesota's Giel, McNamara Loom
As Troublemakers for 'M' Defense
Daily Sports Editor
Special To The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS-Michigan and Minnesota, time-honored football
rivals, meet here at Memorial Stadium this afternoon in a game which
marks the 50th anniversary of the famed "Little Brown Jug."
A sellout crowd of nearly 60,000 is expected to watch the thrice-
beaten Gophers and their All-American tailback Paul Giel attempt
to derail a Michigan team which boasts its best early season record
in five years.





ral Nations Repatriation Commis-
sion yesterday put off until Mon-
day an announcement that may
indefinitely delay the stalled Com-
munist "explanations" to defiant
anti-Red prisoners of war.
The five-nation commission had
been expected to make the an-
nouncement in a statement today.
. - *
COPIES OF the statement were
distributed to members at a 10-
minute meeting. Then, said Lt.
Gen. . S. lhImayya, Indian
chairman of the group, the mem-
bers decided to study it over the
weekend and come back into ses-
sion Monday for its release.
A reliable source said the
statement probably would an-
nounce an indefinite delay in
the violence-packed explanation
program, and "formally put on
the record" the position of mem-
bers who are at odds over the
amount of force that should be
used to compel balky North Kor-
ean prisoners to attend the Red
interviews in the neutral zone.
Red explanation teams have

decade, will be looking for their
fifth straight victory and third
conference triumph of the season.
Minnesota, which has been
defeated by Southern California,
Michigan State and Illinois, is at
fever pitch for the game. The
men of Wes Fesler are thorough-
ly aroused over last week's loss
to Illinois. Key fumbles deep in
Illinois territory ruined what
might have been a close game,
and the Gophers will be anxious
to do better against their best-
loved, most-hated opponent.
Whatever chance Minnesota has
for an upset rests with the fine
tailback-wingback duo of Giel and
Bob McNamara. Giel is one of the
greatest offensive performers in

fine offensive players has been the
slow-moving Gopher forward wall.
Wes Fesler's biggest headache
since his arrival at Minneapolis in

MSC Standards
Charging Michigan State Col-
lege is "lowering its standards,"
Prof. Russell A. Kirk of the MSC
Humanities department has re-
signed his position at the college.
"A lowering of grading stand-
ards and influence of so-called ob-
jective examinations is lowering
college reading and writing stand-
ards," Kirk said. "Colleges now
forecast enrollment, build dormi-
tories to hold hypothetical stu-
dents, and then lower standards to
attract them."

Charles E. Wilson questioned on

At the same time he indicated

erated of the charges he will carry

Commenting on the current
investigations being conducted
at Fort Monmouth by the Army

not see how Sen. McCarthy's
concurrent examinations "could
do any harm."

YD's Hold All Night Meeting
In Preparation for Convention

Speciai to The Daily
Amid traditional smoke filled
rooms, young democrats from 15
districts met in caucus until the
early hours this morning in prep-
aration for the today's bi-annual
Young Democratic State Conven-
tionat the Fort Wayne Hotel.
From the general tone it appear'
ed certain that Vic Baum will be
re-elected as state chairman.
Baum led the state YD's from a
nearly non-existent organization
last March to a group with more
than 1,000 members throughout
the state.
' * *
HOWEVER, discussions over
who will be vice-chairman, cor-
responding and recording secre-

tary, and national committeeman
and woman have not reached final
agreement among the nearly 100
caucusing delegates..
A constitutional amendment
which would add a second vice-
chairmar and two executive
committee members at large has
been tentatively approved by the
Gov. G. Mennen Williams who
had been scheduled to give the
keynote address, was unable to
attend yesterday's session of the
Neil Staebler, siate chairman,
will deliver the keynote address
this morning. The featured speak-
er at a luncheon session will be

BECAUSE THERE are "no sim-
ple remedies and no shortcuts to
the goal of unimpeded flow of
traffic," he advocated "expediting
reliable programs already well de-
veloped as rapidly as enabling leg-
islation, funds and public support
can be obtained."
In the area of local traffic,
Commissioner Moses advocated
in addition to new highway con-
struction "a substantial number
of off-street parking facilities
financed by bonds backed by
revenues from these facilities
and from wholesale use of park-
ing meters."
He also stressed the need fora
railroad grade crossings and for
highway research.
Because of. the currert desper-
ate need for engineers in industry
and because universities are not
producing enough of them to meet
the demand, he suggested "cor-
porations contribute much more
liberally to endowments, labora-
tories, and scholarships."
and facilities, less academic red
tape and faster promotion of cap-
able people will help the profes-
sion by attracting to it the most
ambitious youth of the country,"
he said.
Calling for broader education
before specialization, Commis-
sioner Moses pointed to the fact
that "relatively few first-rate
engineers practice engineering
after they are forty." When they
get out of their slide-rule en-
vironment they need the broad-
er education to make them suc-
cessful in the various fields of
business and contracting.
Stressing the need for profi-
ciency in written and spoken Eng-

Traces Past
At Engineer
Sees Pioneering
In Human Rights
Citing as the "third great pio-
neer movement" in the history of
man recognition of "the essential
dignity and inherant importance
of the individual and his unalien-
able personal rights" Secretary of
Defense Charles E. Wilson yester-
day divided the history of man's
development into three phases,
physical, scientific, and political
and human.
Speaking before a capacity
crowd of engineers, students, fac-
ulty members and ROTC cadets at
the engineering college convoca-
tion, Secretary Wilson called the
State "the servant of the people."
and pointed to the United States
- as the first country "established.
to promote the welfare of all citi-
zans rather than the aggrandize-
ment of the state or the rulers
TERMING the first period in
man's development one of "ex-
ploration of the world, its natural
resources and their simple uses,"
the Secretary named the "develop-
ment of machines, mechanical
horsepower and new products bas-
ed on a recognition and utiliza-
tion of the physical sciences" as
the second.
The third movement, he said
is our great pioneering exper-h
iment in government and human
Replacing the original physical
exploration period which began
centuries ago, Secretary Wilson
claimed that the united States
now has what we might call "two"
continuing frontiers:one in the
material and scientific field, and
the other in the political and hu-
man rights field."
Tracing the path, of human
thought, he painted a picture of,
man's earlier existence on earth
with his hunger and misery and-
pointed to the development of phy-
sical sciences which "opened a
new world for him."
.* * * -
OVERLAPPING this world of
physical exploration, and starting
some 200 years ago, Secretary Wil-
son pointed to the age of pioneer-
ing in the physical sciences which
"in the space of two or three gen-
erations substituted slaves of iron
and steel for human backs."
He said in the past two een-
turies "more progress has been
made toward improving the well-
being of the individual than in
all the centuries preceding
With the new "general accep-
tance of the scientific method,
man dealt first with things he
could see and reason about," he
"We are now well along in the
second great pioneering period,"

which are the result of forces that
