A proposal to invite college news-

"Tosafford an opportunity for

and to promote understanding" was
the feeling expressed by one stu-

an objective analysis of student

How to cope with the racial in-

A brief poll taken yesterday of
sorority presidents and members
here showed that sororities in Ann
Arbor seem to be meeting the
needs of their members adequately,
with little danger of what Luberg
predicted as "going by the boards
for being too superficial."
Asks Stimulative Program
Luberg urged, for example, that
sororities set up stimulating pro-
grams for their members, such as
discussion sessions as a follow-up
to classroom work.
"Issues of discrimination and
selecting members," he added,
"will have to be faced head-on."
He concluded that sororities' in-
fluence on campus life is "probably
deeper and more real than we

sentatives didn't think their groups
are facing a critical situation.
"Right now," pointed out Ann
Bartlett "new sororities are form-

Sorority's Purpose

added, "is learning how to get
along with others - not closing
your doors to them. Stimulating
opportunities come along spon-

remarked, "but a chance for clos-

ed, "programs for stimulating
members would make a sorority
too institutionalized. I don't think
that sororities are weak in the

faculty." Davis refused to disclose
political beliefs before the Con-
gressional committee last May on
grounds of the First Amendment.
Prof. Arthur J. Lohwater, of the
mathematics department declared,
"The decision of the President and
Regents not to grant severance
pay to these men shows a deplor-
able irresponsibility, not only to
the faculty and to common decen-
cy, but also to contractual obliga-
tions. Unfortunately, these men
are not the only losers; in the end
the University is the real victim."
Other faculty members reacted
to the Regents' decision in the
same manner. Many of them ex-
pressed disappointment because
Davis and Prof. Nickerson would
not receive severance pay; many
of them preferred to defer words
to future action they are sure will
take place on the matter.
The question of severance pay
in dismissal cases is being studied
by a Faculty Senate committee as
the result of a motion passed by
the Senate last month. Report on
the pay issue, as wvell as on other
maters related to faculty members'
behavior before Congressional in-
vestigating committees, will not
be made until the spring term

Michigan Holds 33- 10 Edge,
InBitter Intra-State Series
Two Teams Meet Saturday in 47th Battle;
97,239 To Watch 'M' Try To Snap Jinx


The traditional series between the University of Michigan and
Michigan State College is a series of streaks-mostly big Maize and
Blue ones.
Since 1898 the two squads have battled 46 times, and meet
for a 47th this Saturday before nearly 100,000 fans in the Michigan
Stadium. During that period the tide of battle has run in cycles for,
all but one three year period during World War One.
Michigan holds a lop-sided 33 victories to MSC's 14, and three
have been tied-but you can throw all records to the winds when

Clard 's Campaign Tactics
Lost Him Election--Haywortli

"It wasn't the hearings them-
selves, but the way Clardy used
them during the campaign, that
the voters didn't like," Prof. Don-
ald Hayworth of Michigan State
College, said regarding his recent
victory over Rep. Kit Clardy (R-
Mich.) in the sixth district.
The people were stirred up at
first and thought he was rendering
a serviceto the country, but soon
they began to question the value
of the hearings, said the profes-
sor of speech, who will be holding
a political office for the first time.
Character Was Issue
"Most important issue for the
people was a matter of character,"
Democrat Hayworth pointed out,
"and they doubted Clardy's sin-
"During the campaign .I circu-
lated 10,000 copies of an editorial
in the Michigan Christian Advocate
which questioned Clardy's interest
in legislative activities and suggest-
ed that he was only interested in
conducting investigations on un-
American activities.
"I believe the editorial had an
effect on the people's votes," he
No Outside Help
Regarding Clardy's charge that
his defeat was due to "an especial-
ly vicious smear-type campaign"

by left-wing elements, Hayworth
commented "I had no help from
outside the district except for two
contributions, one of which was
from the National Democratic
"My opponent calls everyone
who doesn't agree with him a left-
winger," Hayworth pointed out.
"Throughout the campaign Clar-
dy never talked about anything
else but Communism, while the
people were interested in bread
and butter issues," he feels.
"Besides economic issues, I hit
hard on the fact that Clardy has
not supported his own party poli-
cy," he said.
"Concrete and vigorous" was
how Hayworth described his cam-
paign. "I guess some people ex-
pected that a campaigning profes-
sor would have his head in the
clouds. However I'm also a busi-
nessman," he said. Hayworth owns
a plastics business.

The 1898 39-0 Michigan victory
was just a warmup for the next
year when Michigan rolled up a
119-0 score-one of the most lop-
sided counts in the History of the
game-and the Wolverines first
big streak was underway.
Michigan went on to win seven
straight games from the Michigan
Agricultural College, as it was then
called. It was not until 1913 that
the Farmers (then the nickname
of MAC teams) won their first tilt
from the Wolverines, by a 12-7
count. Michigan won again in
1914, 3-0, but the Aggies march-
ed right back in '15 to hand the
Big Blue a 24-0 whitewashing.
Then it started. The longest
domination of a team in Michi-
gan's entire football history was
'underway with 1916's 9- victory,
a streak that reached 18 straight
games without defeat against the
Spartans. When the 1934 Aggies
finally nicked Michigan 16-0 it
marked the first time in the en
tire lifespan of many a Michigan
freshman that a State team had
been victorious over the men from
Ann Arbor.
State Streak Starts
This game was the signal for
State to start its own streak, and
with the powerhouses of Charlie
Bachman going full blast, the
Spartans rolled to four straight.'
However, with Fritz Crisler at the
helm, Michigan snapped the State
streak in 1938, 14-0, and from
there on, Crisler coached teams
won over the Spartans for ten
straight victories.
The most memorable game dur-
ing this third great Maize and
Blue streak was the 55-0 butcher-
ing over MSC in the Michigan,
Stadiumin 1947. It was the initial
game for Clarence "Biggie" Munn
at the State helm, and it was his
worst humiliation. The great Cris-
ler juggernaught of Chappius, El-
liot, Mann and Ford rolled through
the Spartan line for the most lop-
sided tilt since 1922's 63-0 Michi-
gan victory.
After 1949's 7-3 Michigan tri-
umph, the cycle again swung and
the Spartans rose to prominence
for the first time since the reign
of Bachman. For the last four
years, great State teams have trip-
ped Michigan. The most recent
was last year's 14-6 loss to the
eventual Big Ten and Rose Bowl
champions up at East Lansing.
Last year's game was probably
the best Wolverine effort of the
season, despite the fact that they
lost. The game also marked the
debut of G. Mennen Williams'
controversial Paul Bunyan tro-
phy which will go to the winner
of all succeeding M-MSC battles,
The trophy is not expected to re-
place the Little Brown Jug in pop-
ularity however. As yet, Michigan
has not given its'official sanction
to the award.
However, it appears as if the
pendulum is again ready to swing.
Last week, Michigan snapped a'
similar Illini four year hex.
Michigan is still hoping for the
chance to visit California's Rose
Bowl in January. The Spartans
meanwhile are in the throes of
one of their worst seasons in re-
cent years. This combination may
mean an explosion is due Satur-
day afternoon in the Stadium.

1948 Who's got it? Actually Michigan's Tom Peterson (center bottom) is carrying the leather, as
the Wolverines win, 13-7.
