Crisler Obtains Copyright
On Official Football Material
A legal cloud appeared on the -horizon for student hawkers of
football rosters when Prof. Herbert O. "Fritz" Crisler revealed yes-
terday that a copyright has been obtained on all material in the
official football program published by the athletic department.
Immediate speculation on the legality of the copyright and
methods of enforcement was clouded by-lack of information as to
the exact nature of the copyright. Student spokesmen for the dis-

tributors of the dime program

expressed serious doubt about the
successfullness of the copyright in

LONDON - (A) - A new purge,

the Soviet republic of Georgia yes-
Two top men were - fired in a
shakeup possibly mirroring a
fresh struggle in the Kremlin for
political control of that home-
land of Joseph Stalin and Lavren-
ty Beria. * * *
A BROADCAST from Tiflis, the
capital, gave the details:
Premier Valerian Bakradze,
who had headed the government
since last April, was dismissed in
disgrace and G. D. Javakhishvili,
a former deputy premier, was
named in his place.
Secretary Mirtshkulava of the
Central Committee of the Geor-
gian Communist party was sim-
ultaneously dismissed and re-
placed by a man named Mamal-
adje, presumably a former justice
minister of the republic.
Apparently the Kremlin leaders
felt the Georgian Communists
were being too easy on Beria 's
henchmen still in power.
THE REMOVAL of Bakradze{
and Mirtshkulava could be just
a delayed-action cleanup of BeriaI
men in top Georgian posts.
Georgian politics have become
so complicated in the last year
and a half it is difficult to fol-
low them.
In April, 1952, a man named
Charkviani, political boss, hench-
man of Beria and first secretary of

er Stalin's death, another purge of

Secretary George M. Humphrey
drew applause from 3,800 bankers
yesterday with an unqualified
statement that personal income
taxes will drop and the excess pro-
fits tax will die on Dec. 31 as
Humphrey spoke after Presi-
dent Eisenhower urged the Amer-
ican Bankers Association to join in
a quest for "truly American" ans-
wers to national problems.
THEY SHOULD seek, the Pres-
ident said, policies that are "sound
for all Americans-not for just one
class, group or segment, but for
Humphrey, besides reporting
"real progress" toward a bal-
anced budget and, a reversal of
the rise in Federal spending,
ended guessing that the Ad-
ministration might seek renewal
of the excess profits levy and
the expiring 10 per cent increase
in income taxes.
Such speculation had been stir-
red by Mr. Eisenhower's address
in Boston Monday night.
The President then declared
"there is no sacrifice-no labor,
no tax, no service-too hard for'
us to bear to support a logical and
necessary defense of our freedom."
That the bankers approved
Humphrey's reassurance on this
score was clear. They interrupted
his speech with applause at sev-
eral points.
The White House had approv-
ed Humphrey's words in ad-
vance. If more revenue is need-
ed for defense-because of So-
viet possession of the hydrogen
bomb or other factors-the Ad-
ministration reportedly will seek
to get it from "other taxes."
Humphrey gave the bankers no
hint, however, that the Adminis-
tration would not insist on con-
tinuation of, the present 52 per
cent corporate income tax, sched-
uled to drop to 47 per cent on April
1, or of the wartime excise rates
which are due for reduction on
