Trophy Awarded
is For 52-53 Year-






"We're surprised and very
pleased," Interfraternity Council
President C. A. Mitts, '54, said yes-
terday as he admired a three-and-
a-half foot high wrought iron
He was looking at the trophy
awarded to the University's Inter-
fraternity Council Friday for hav-
ing "the most outstanding pro-
gram of IFC activity in the Unit-
ed States and Canada during
ANNOUNCEMENT of the honor
came at the 45th annual National
Interfraternity Conference held
last weekend in Cincinnati.
Presenting the award, awards
chairman J. Edward Murphy of
Philadelphia lauded the Univer-
sity's IFC for "an all around
job of service, help and deter-
mination to have fraternities
play the role for which they
were intended-and then add
something to that - Michigan
gets top honors."
IFC officers said last year's IFC
president, Pete Thorpe, '57M, and
the rest of last year's IFC staff de-
served "most of the credit."
Representing the University at
the conference were Acting Dean
of Students Walter B. Rea and
William S. Zerrman, assistant to
the dean of students.
Local IFC delegates at the con-
clave were Mitts, IFC executive
vice-president John Baity, '56, and
administrative vice-president Sam
Siporin, '54.a
A WEIGHTY 25 pound report
on the IFC's activities during
1952-53 was the basis for the
judges' decision.
Four areas of IFC operation
were considered in making the
awards. They are service to 1)
local community, 2) member fra-
ternities, 3) the university and
general student body and 4)
"fraternity ideals."
The undergraduate interfrater-
nity councils at the conference
represented 125,000 college men

Sigler Killed
In Air Crash
Governor Kim Sigler and three
companions were killed late yester-
day in a light plane crash near
Augusta, about eight miles north
of here.
A coroner identified Sigler as
one of the victims.
SIGLER'S private plane, which
he was piloting himself, rammed
into either the top of a 540-foot
television tower or a guy wire sup-
porting it. The plane sailed out of
control for three-quarters of a
mile, crashed into a woods and
burned. One wing was ripped off
the plane by the impact.
The other victims were be-
lieved to be his secretary, Mrs.
Ruth Prentiss; her sister, Mrs.
Virginia Schuyler; and Mrs.
Schuyler's husband, Harold.
Sigler, silver-haired 59-year-
ld one-time fiery prosecutor who
rocketed to the top of state poli-
tics and the governor's chair in
1946, had been on a business trip
to New Orleans. He had called his
law office in nearby .Lansing only
an hour before the crash to say he
was on his last leg of the flight
home in his four-passenger plane.
The television tower toppled ov-
er a few minutes after the crash
and smashed through the roof of
the transmitter building. The tow-

er, that of Battle Creek UHF sta-
tion WBCK-TV, is near Augusta.
Sigler, a Republican, was gov-
ernor for one two-year term in 19-
47-48. Then he was defeated by
the present Democratic governor,
G. Mennen Williams, who has held
the office since then.

Hyma Lauds"
Court Ruling
'On Medium
Calling it a "step in the right
direction," Prof. Albert Hyma of
the history department yesterday
I praised the State. Supreme Court
ruling permitting him to sue a
Detroit spiritualist over bad finan-
cial advice.,
He said the court decision was
"unprecedented" because never
before had a high court upheld a
decision against spiritualists and
their financial "manipulations."
A YEAR AGO, Prof. Iyma
charged Lillian Lee, widowed pas-
tor of the Church of Christ Inter-
denominational, with bilking him
of $16,400. He contended she had
"held herself out as a spiritualist
with mystical powers of commun-
icating with the dead."
According to the history pro-
fessor, the medium had con-
ducted seances in which the{
advice of various "spirits" caus-I
ed him to turn down a $2,700
offer for stock in a company
that later went bankrupt, spend
$4,200 for a fruitless oil venture,
and mortgage his Ann Arbor
home for $8,500 to ransom a
political prisoner in a Mexican
jail, who would then turn over
to him a considerable fortune.
Circuit Judge Adolph F. Marsch-
ner at that time dismissed the
suit on the grounds there was no
cause for action, since there was
no proof the medium had profitted
In its reversal, the Supreme
Court said there is cause for

Eden Hopes
For Russia
I.T.S. To Adopt
Tough Attitude
of State Dulles hinted strongly
yesterday the United States will
accept Russia's bid for an early
meeting of the Big Four foreign
ministers in Berlin.
"We approach a possible meet-
ing with the representatives of the
Soviet Union," he told a congres-
sional committee.
DULLES SPOKE about the same
time that Foreign Minister An-
thony Eden was telling the British
House of Commons he has "every
reason to believe" the United
States shares his hope an early
conference can be arranged.
The State Department declin-
' ed to say whether Dulles has as-
sured Eden of this attitude in
secret cables which have been
flowing between London, Paris
and Washington.
State Department press officer
Lincoln White noted tha't numer-
ous diplomatic exchanges have
been made since Russia sprang its
surprise invitation on the West
last Friday.
IN GERMANY, British and
French officials said informally
that all signs pointed to a Big Four
session being held in West Ber-
lin late in January.
Dulles' comment wound up
testimony before a special.House
committee investigating Rus-
sia's seizure of the three Baltic
states of Latvia, Lithuania and
He gave advance notice that the
United States will adopt a tough
attitude in dealing with Russia's
Foreign Minister Molotov in the
event a satisfactory basis for a
conference can be found.
His broad hint, however, that
the United States might agree to
Russia's invitation contrasted
rather sharply with official State
Department comment on Moscow's
bid last Friday.
At that time, the department
labeled Russia's note "disappoint-
ing" and said it represented ano-
ther Soviet move to block French
approval of the proposed unified
European army.
