New Political
Group Plans
With 50 per cent of the required
number of members already sign-
ed up, the Student League of In-
dustrial Democracy hopes to be-
come the newest campus organiza-
tion before next Friday night.
SLID has been organized as a
student branch of the League of
Industrial Democracy by campus
politicos Art Cornfeld, '56, and
John Leggett, '54, both of whom
have been active members of the
campus Students For Democratic
Action. Cornfeld is the SDA vice
president; Leggett an executive
board member.

Aims of the forthcoming Mich-
igan SLID group, according to
Cornfeld, "are both educational
and political." In its cultural as-
pect the group plans to initiate a
series of lectures by prominent
leaders in field of economics.
Among the prospective speakers
are Norman Thomas and Victor
"We will not shy away from con-
troversial topics,. as is typical of
most of the other political groups
on campus," said Cornfeld.
Right now, with 15 members in
the fold, SLID is looking for 15
more to reach the minimum 30
that is needed for University rec-
ognition of any campus group.
A meeting devoted to this organ-
izational task will be held either
Wednesday or Thursday of next
week, to be announced later.

years, six months; Wellman,
four years and eight months,
and Schatz, four years and four
"Under federal law, I can
change this sentence any time
within the next 60 days," Judge,
Picard said, "and if any of you
should decide you want to go toj
Russia, I would be glad to do so."

HE SAID he saw no mitigating
circumstances in favor of the de-
fendants and could not consider
placing them on probation.
Prior to Judge Picard's sen-
tencing, all of the defendants
made statements declaring their
innocence of the charges against
them under the Smith Act.
They were convicted Tuesday of
violating the Smith Act by con-
spiring to teach and advocate: vio-
lent overthrow of the government.
The defendants said the sen-
tences would be appealed. ,
Ganley's bond was fixed at $25,-
000; Wellman's- at $22,500; and
Allan, Dennis and Schatz at
Judge Picard set Mrs. Winter's
bond at $5,000 in view of the fact
that her husband, Carl Winter,
already is in prison on a Smith,
Act conviction in New York.

Overtime Contest

Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING - Michigan's
hockey mastery over Michigan
State ended last night as a fired
up Spartan squad desperately
fought off a Wolverine sextet du-
ing 70 minutes of scoreless hockey
and gained a 0-0 tie.
The tie game, which gave the
Wolverines only a half-point in
the WHL standing, practically
ended the last remaining hopes
the Maize and Blue had of earn-
ing a berth to the NCAA playoffs.
Ikola and Spartan Ed Schiller
played sensationally in the nets
as they turned back a total of 91
shots between them in the con-
test which ended after ten min-
utes of sudden death overtime.
It became evident from the
opening face-off that Amo Bes-
sone had his Green and White
clad charges ready to assume a
spoiler's role. In the first period
the Spartans outskated, out-
fought, and outthought the slug-
gish Wolverines as they swarm-
ed all over Ikola. Only the
Michigan netminder's sensa-
tional play staved off any MSC
The Heyligermen, who had
perked up somewhat in the second
stanza, bombarded Schiller in the
third period with everything but
the goal itself, but the Spartan
was equal to the task. Time and
time again Schiller was called on
to perform amazing feats in the
State twies against desperate
Wolverine onslaughts.
THE HECTIC third frame prov-
ed extremely frustrating to the
Ann Arbor sextet as their repeat-
ed breakaway and close range
shots were attracted t Schiller's
stick like filings to a magnet.
Shifting in high gear, Michigan's
golden opportunity came in the
final six minutes of the period.
At 14:31 of that period Gordie
King boarded George Chin so
viciously that the Michigan
wingman was down on the ice
for ten minutes. Fifteen seconds
later John Gipp joined King in
the penalty box and the Wol-.
verines enjoyed a two man ad.
vantage. Jim Haas, Doug Mul-
len; Burt Dunn and Doug Phil-
pott combined on a power play
but Schiller's circus acrobatics
stymied the Michigan attack.
The Wolverines had two more
chances to break the deadlock
before regulation play ended but
Schiller again proved an unsur-
mountable obstacle. Doug Mac-
Farland rocketed a shot at the
Spartan goalie from close up but

Hatcher Says
Never Made
MSC Head Drops
Change to MSU
Michigan State College Presi-
dent John A. Hannah yesterday
lashed out at what he called
University claim that University
appropriations are being cut be-
cause of MSC's growth.
University President Harlan H.
Hatcher countered last night, after
he was read Hannah's statement
over the telephone, that "Inever
made any such claim and I don't
know what he is referring tg.
PRESIDENT Hatcher seemed
amazed by Hannah's blast.
Speaking before the State Board
.of Agriculture, MSC governing
body, Hannah declared that the.
University had used the argument
that State is growing at its ex-
pense before the State Legislature,
which controls the purse-strings
for both schools.
"The University claim that
they are suffering because of us
is pure myth," he said. "I tried
to pitch this thing on a high
plane," Hannah told the board,
referring to his own presentation
to the legislature. "We are not
suggesting that the University is
getting too much money-in fact
they are not getting enough."
The Board was shown charts i1-
lustrating the MSC contention
that the University is getting more
than its fair share of legislative
In 1947-48, -one chart showed,
the University had 5,707 more stu-
dents and received $3,507,722 more
in State money. The difference in
enrollment is only 3,000 now, the
chart showed, but the University is
scheduled for $6,999,000 more Un-
der the present budget.
THE CHART showed that al-
though Michigan State is steadily
catching up in the number of stu-
dents enrolled Michigan has been
pulling ahead in the amount of
money appropriated.
President Hatcher declined to
comment on whether the Un-
versity was "pulling ahead." "We
have been trying to mind our
own business at the University,
he said.
- President Hatcher said he would
have no further comment on Han-
nah's statement until he had time
to study it.
"It is unfortunate," Hannah de-
clared, "that we have to make this
invidious comparison, but the ar-
gument that Michigan State is
growing at the University's ex-
pense just doesn't hold water."
Hannah also told the Board of
Agriculture that he had dropped
the request to change the name of
MSC to Michigan State University
for the time being on the advice of
friends in the Legislature. "They
said we were getting into difficul-
ties," he said, "and that even if
we won we would lose friends."

Pollock Discusses Berlin Conference,

Citing the main Russian purpose in attending the Berlin Peace
Conference as an attempt to split France from England and the Unit-
ed States, Prof. James K. Pollock, chairman of the political science
department said "what follows in the next few weeks will prove more
important than the conference itself."
The European political expert called the consideration of the Eu-
ropean Defense Community by the French Parliament in April and
their action on the proposed six nation armed force as "the only effect-
ive way" of measuring Soviet success in attaining their purpose.'
** * *
CURRENTLY he said it appears as though Russian strategy had
failed since French Foreign Minister Bidault has chosen to stand with
the Western allies, "presumably with the approval of his government."
"If EDC is passed in April," the professor pointed out, "it will
prove a serious defeat for the Russians-like the recent German
elections or the Berlin riots." If it fails "the United States will be
forced to make what Mr. Dulles aptly called an agonizing reap-
praisal of our foreign policy."

sense in hoping she will get out of Germany, a defeated country. Rus-
sia won't get out of Europe until she has to."
However the political scientist feels the unification of Ger-
many is "natural and inevitable." When and how this will be ac-
complished is the only uncertainty. "But the problem will be solved
sooner or later," he insisted, "and the sooner it happens the less
danger there will be of arousing dangerous nationalistic emotions"
in the divided country.
The fact that the Russian position has been placed "nakedly be-
fore the world" was called one of the most interesting aspects of the
conference. By neutralizing Germany, Molotov hopes to acquire "new
seedgrounds for Communism."
The professor pointed to the success already enjoyed by the Com-
munists in emplanting their doctrine in their own zone of Germany,
and said that whatever happened to Germany would subsequently
happen to the rest of Europe. For this reason "Germany is important
to us as a bulwark against Communism."
As to the end achieved by the conference, Prof. Pollock claimed he
