Pact To Permit
15 Allied Nations Sign Agreements
Following Saar Basin Compromise
PARIS (Mi - Inceremonies of the greatest historic significance, 15
Western nations signed agreements yesterday to bring 500,000 rearmed
West Germans into the Allied defensive alliance against Communist
The action brought immediate and unfavorable Soviet reaction.
The last hurdle was dramatically cleared by an 11th hour com-
promise settlement of the long and acrimonious dispute between France
and West Germany over the future of the coal-steel rich Saar--once
German, now tied economically to France.
As the foreign ministers solemnly affixed their signatures to the
pacts, the Soviet Union denounced them as war-breeding instruments.
In notes to the United States, Britain and France the Russians proposed
once again that the Big Four meet next month and wrestle with the
r German problem-on Soviet terms.

Wolverines Surprise Homecoming
Crowd of 70,303 in Crucial Test
By HANLEY M. GURWIN
Associate Sports Editor
Michigan did it again-and this time in grand style.
Scoring in every quarter, the Wolverines dominated the game
from the opening kick-off till the closing seconds to completely stun
a favored and previously unbeaten Minnesota eleven, 34-0, before a
Homecoming Day crowd of 70,303 fans here yesterday.
For the second time this season, Michigan overcame the odds
to dump one of the nation's top teams, the first time being the
14-13 victory over Iowa.

West Not Surprised
Few Western diplomats were
surprised by the timing of the
note which, in effect, rejected pre-

mands that the Soviet Union agree
to sign an Austrian independence
treaty and to hold genuinely free

such conference takes place,

France and West Germany where
many political leaders favor an-
other try at ending the cold war

Aside from the Saar agreement
-which isn't textually final as yet

1. The United States, Britain,
France and Germany agreed to

For a change, the statistics do
tell the true story of the contest.
Michigan piled up an astronomi-
cal total of 443 net yards for the
afternoon while the Gophers could
muster only 138. In racking up a
17 to five advantage in the first-
downs column, the Wolverines
rolled to 261 yards on the ground
compared to Minnesota's 43.
From the moment that Wolver-
ine Danny Cline returned the
opening kick-off back to his own
39-yard line, it was evident to the
cheering crowd that the Maize
and Blue were primed for another
After an exchange of punts,
Michigan began a drive on its own
30-yard line which was not stop-
ped until the Gophers stiffened
and held on their own one.
Not to be thwarted, Cline gath-
ered in a Minnesota punt on the
next play and ran it back to the
13. Tony Branoff, back in the
line-up for the first time in three
weeks, galloped with the ball the
rest of the way in two plays.
Kramer converted the first of
four perfect extra-points (he has
not missed one this season) and
the Wolverines led 7-0 with 12:35
gone in the quarter.
Midway through the second per-
iod, Michigan culminated an 80-
yard march as fullback Fred Baer
cracked over left guard for the
first of his two touchdowns. The
drive took only eight plays and
