Democrats Promise To Oppose
Contract Execution in Next Session
WASHINGTON (R-The Republican-controlled Senate-House Atom-
ic Energy Committee gave President Eisenhower an immediate go-
ahead for the controversial Dixon-Yates contract yesterday.
Democratic opponents promptly served notice they will continue
their fight against the private power project.
By a 10-8 vote along straight party lines, the committee decided
to waive a requirement that the contract lie before it for 30 days while
both houses are in session-or until next February.
Democratic congressmen, who have fought vigorously since June
against the proposal to bring new private power into the Tennessee

"Eisenhower Democrats" have
been drawn back to the Democrat-
ic party fold.
A nation-wide study conducted
in October by the Survey Research
Center indicates that "party-
switchers" of 1952 returned to their
own party for the recent Congres-
sional election, allowing Democrats
to capture control of the 84th Con-
The study reveals that President
Eisenhower did not accomplish a
major swing to the Republican
party as Franklin D. Roosevelt
achieved for the Democrats in 1932.
As a result of the New Deal phe-
nomenom, Democrats now outnum-
ber Republicans about three to two
in the country at large.
More Republicans Vote
However, the difference in party
proportion is off-set somewhat by
the fact that Democrats are less
likely to $go to the polls than Re-
publicans. The Center study shows
that this was true in 1954 as in
most recent elections.
According to Center studies, there
are three main factors that deter-
mine the outcome of an election:
candidates, issues and party affili-
ation. In 1952 the Eisenhower per-
sonality coupled with the Korean
issue accomplished a mass swing
that cut sharply across party lines.
Prof. Angus Campbell, director
of the Survey Research Center,
also pointed out that in only one
election since 1890 (in 1948) did the
party who won the off-year elec-
tion fail to capture the next presi-
First Off-Year Analysis
The recent October study, based
on a sampling of 1,139 individuals,
is the first off-year election analy-
sis conducted by the Center. They
have also held a major study-proj-
ect of the 1952 election.
Results show that no one issue
held major prominence in 1954.
The only issue that came through
with any strength was Korea, with
28% of the sample saying the best!
thing the Republicans had done in
office was to end the war.
Despite the attention given to

The committee also voted to stop
further hearings on the hotly de-

committee had "defied the will of

Star for 'M' in Final Home Game
By HANLEY GURWIN
Associate Sports Editor
Michigan's unpredictable Wolverines reduced a once-haughty band
of Michigan State Spartans to shambles yesterday afternoon as they
rolled to an awesome 33-7 victory before a capacity crowd of 97,239
fans in Michigan Stadium.
The win sets the stage for next Saturday's climactic rose-scented
battle with Ohio State at Columbus.
After four straight years of taking a back seat to the East Lansing
eleven, Michigan exploded with three touchdowns in the final quarter
to sew up the contest when it seemed as if the Spartans would iebound
from a 13 point deficit.
SURPRISE RUN-With a group of Michigan State Spartans stan ding around a punted ball about to roll dead, Wolverine Back Lou
Baldacci (27) surprised the crowd by picking up the ball and running it ten yards before being stopped. Chasing him here are Spar-
tans Embry Robinson (77) and Alvin Lee (61). Michigan won 33 to 7.
