Combined Group Discusses Housing
Plan, North Campus, Other Issues
North Campus, final examinations, the Michigan housing plan
and the University calendar were discussed by over 60 campus leaders
yesterday afternoon at the Inglis home during the third semi-annual
student-faculty-administration conference.
Although no decisions as to policy were made by the group, a
general "ironing out" of problems resulted from the discussions.

Cooney Nets
'Hat Trick'
For Victors
Gets First Goal
I n41 Seconds
A determined Wolverine hockey
team opened its season in a con-
vincing manner last night as. Mi-
chigan completely dominated play
to turn back a McGill sextet, 7-2,
before a near capacity crowd at
the Coliseum.
The Maize and Blue puckmen
outplayed the invaders from Mon-
treal right from the opening face-
off and were never behind in the
one-sided contest.
PAT COONEY,. right-wing on
Michigan's first line, netted the
first of his three goals only 41
seconds after the game had started.
Cooney, playing with glasses on
for the first time, blasted the puck
past Redman goalie Moe Jacques
after taking passes from linemates
Doug Mullen and George Chin.
With Cooneys initial goal as,
an early inspiration, the Maize
and Blue continued to apply the
pressure throughout the entire
first period and before intermis-
sion had built up a comfortable
4-0 lead.
Sophomore B ill McFarland,
playing for the first time as a Wol-
verine, performed brilliantly and
bagged the first of his two tallies
and the Wolverines second of the
night at the 5:26 mark of the op-
ening period.
Less than three minutes later,
Doug Philpdtt, who assisted on
McFarland's gaol, bagged one of
his own as he swept in from the
right boards on a breakaway, fak-
ed the McGill goaltender out of
position, and deposited the puck
neatly in the twines.
s s
COONEY SCORED the second
of his markers at 13:05 of the per-
iod to end the scoring for the first
session. Captain Jim Haas, play-
ing defense again after serving as
a forward last season, and Chin
both received assists on Cooney's
The McGill sextet returned to
the ice for the second session de-
termined to get back in the game'
and promptly proceeded to score
the first of its two goals at the 40
second mark of the period. Wol-
verine Burt Dunn was serving a
two-minute penalty for interfer-
ence when the puck bounced off
Philpott into the Michigan net for
the McGill counter.
The goal was credited to Guy
Bourgoin since he was the last
Redman to touch the puck with
the assist going to wing Pete
Shortly after the beginning of
the second stanza, Jay Goold, so-
phomore left-wing' on the second
line, crashed into the boards be-
hind the McGill net and had to
retire for the night. The extent of
Goold's injury is not known but it
is doubtful whether he will see ac-
tion in tonight's encounter.
The loss of Goold caused a
shake-up of the Michigan forward
lines which resulted in rather un-
steady play for most of the second
period. However, with just a few
minutes left in the period, a pair
of newcomers, McFarland and Don
MacArthur, playing on the third
line, netted two more goals, bring-
ing the Wolverine total to six.

To Be Given
Here Today
Handel's monumental oratorio,
the Messiah, will be performed to-
night at 8:30 p.m. and again to-
morrow at 2:30 p.m. in Hill Audi-
torium with a 330-voice chorus
featuring four well-known soloists.
The success of the "Messiah"
was immediate, especially the cli-
mactic "Hallelujah Chorus" which
was hailed at the first perform-
ance by England's King George
III. Another well-known aria
from the oratorio is the bass solo,
"The Trumpet Shall Sound."

WITH ONLY rough estimates
of the number of people. taking the
two hour- examinations yesterday,
the total number of students par-

approached the figure of 1214. Ac-
cording to a pre-examination sur-

ed by Commission director DaeI

be revised to meet the needs of
students majoring in liberal edu-
cation subjects if the results of the
tests and following tests prove that
the people in this category usually
do not find occupations in the field
in which they concentrate.
Students from more than 100
American colleges and universities
are cooperating with the Commis-
sion in the study. Results will be
reported sometime in 1954.

(M-President Eisenhower, Prime
Minister Churchill and Premier,
Laniel exchange opinions on So-
viet policy at the first session of
their historic conference in this
winter holiday island yesterday.
And their foreign ministers were
reported to have agreed on hold-

SPOKESMEN present at the
first meeting of Eisenhower, Chur-

tightly guarded conference room
in the Mid-Ocean Club said there
naturally were "certain divergen-

ent and future Soviet policy.
This was no surprise, as the
meeting had been arranged to
harmonize the views of the in-
ternational situation held by
Britain, France and the United
Their first meeting, taking place
just 3/ hours after President
Eisenhower had' landed in this
flowery island, lasted 2 -hours and
15 minutes.
The informants said the West-
ern reply to the Soviet note of
Nov. 26, proposing such a confer-
ence in Berlin, would be a short,
direct acceptance of the idea of a
parley, but they did not disclose
the proposed time or place. How-
ever, it is not likely to be before
mid-January, after the French
presidential elections.
THERE WAS NO hint of the
divergencies that showed up at

The 79-year-old Churchill is the
only survivor of the Roosevelt-
Stalin-Churchill wartime meet-
ings. The last such international
meeting attepded by an American
president was eight years ago at
Potsdam when President Truman

The conference of the Big Three
here began an hour after their
foreign ministers had started far-
ranging talks in the rigidly pa-
trolled club.
