Pep Rally To Spark
To the Ounce
W) -- - Sounds
By HANLEY GURWIN
Associate Sports Editor
With fullback Fred Baer still a
doubtful starter, the Michigan grid
squad ran through its last strenu-
ous workout yesterday before its
Big Ten championship battle with
OSU Saturday at Ohio Stadium.
As the Wolverine eleven ran
through defensive practice against
Ohio State's running attack, Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan said, regarding'
Baer: "I don't know whether he'll
be in good enough shape to play
or not." Michigan is already minus
its first string center, Jim Bates,
and back Tony Branoff.
The Wolverines will journey to
Columbus hoping to play the spoil-
er role again, as they have thrice
so far this season. This time the
odds are really against them, but
if team spirit can be substituted
for past performances, then Michi-
gan has an excellent chance of
embarrassing the Buckeyes in
their own back-yard.
Need Convincing Victory
The young Wolverine team real-
izes that while even a one-point
victory would earn them a share
of the Big Ten title, it will take a
convincing victory to earn the Rose
Bowl nomination of the Big Ten
Physically the team is in about
the same shape as it was for last
week's game against the Spartans.
The only men missing from the
line-up due to injuries are still end
Jerry Williams, halfback Tony
Branoff, and center-linebacker Jim
Oosterbaan had hoped that Bates
would be available for tomorrow's
contest but doctors have advised
against his seeing action.
Weather May Be Factor
One of the big determining fac-
tors in tomorrow's clash may be
the weather. According to the Wil-
low Run Weather Bureau Columbus
is expected to be a bit damp over
the week-end. Showers are forecast
for both today and tomorrow in the
While the wet ground may slow
up the speedy Buckeye backfield,
it will also cut down on the scor-
ing for the Wolverines, a factor
which will go a long way toward in-
fluencing the Rose Bowl vote in
case the Wolverines win.
Fans Via Television
While thousands of University
students will be making the trip
to Columbus to cheer the Wolver-
ines in the last regular season
game of the year, most of Ann Ar-
bor and vicinity will be watching,
the game over television.
For one of the few times this
season, the NCAA .is presenting a
game which has national signifi-
cance and they couldn't have1
picked a better one than the Mich-
igan-Ohio State clash.
If Michigan wins, it will be the
19th time that the Wolverines have
won or tied a Western Conference

The Conference also included a
report by Dean Charles E. Ode-
gaard of the literary college and
Dean Ralph A. Sawyer of the
graduate school on "America's Re-
sources of Specialized Talent."
Stresses 'Hard Thinking'
"Hard thinking" and emotional
maturity were stressed by Dean
Stanley F. Teele of Harvard's
Graduate School of Business Ad-
ministration for the student pre-
paring for professional study of
"Neither intellectual capacity
nor specific knowledge alone pro-
vide much of a guarantee of suc-
cess in a professional school or
profession," Dean Teele said. He
urged that research be undertaken
to providing means of judging
these extra-academic qualities.
"Lack of a sense of mission" in
present-day medical students was
discussed by Dean Aura E. Sever-
inghaus of Columbia's College of
Physicians and Surgeons.
A 'High Calling'
Students "feel that it is senti-
mental to regard one's work as a
high calling," he continued, "but
they might well remember the
Oslers, the Grenfells, and the Al-
bert Schweitzers." Dean Servering-
haus maintained that competence
and attitude are equally signifi-
cant in a man's life.
Personality traits of the profes-
sional student were also stressed
by Maynard M. Boring, manager
of Technical Personnel Develop-
ment Services of General Electric
Company. Many basic difficulties
in professions were attributed to
bad habits and traits, which Bor-
ing said should have been cor-
rected earlier in the educational

by Boring as one of the greatest
problems of the firms which hire'

Michigan's upset-minded football
team will get a rousing student
sendoff today for the climactic bat-
tle of the season tomorrow against
Ohio State at Columbus.
Led by three bands, the stu-
dents will swarm from the front
of the Union at 2:00 p.m. toward
Yost Field House where the team
is expected to leave by bus for
Willow Run Airport at 2:45 p.m.
Master of ceremonies Howard
Nemorovski, Grad., is expected to
call on Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
and team captain Ted Cachey as
well as a few other players for
short speeches during the rally.1
Three Bands To Play
Although the University March-
ing Band will be well on its way
to Columbus by Pep Rally time,
Phi Gamma Delta and Taylor
House's marching bands and a
group of musicians from the Air
Force ROTC unit will provide
music for the affair.
Starting from divergent spots
on campus the bands will converge
in front of the Union and lead the
students down to the Field House.
The Phi Gam band will starts
from its fraternity house, march
down Hill Street and then to the
Union. Taylor will open its playing
in the West Quad, South Quad
area, with the Air Force group!
starting at the Diagonal.
Balzhiser Urges Attendance
Richard Balzhiser, '55E, who
has helped in the preparations for
today's rally said yesterday, "it's
now up to the students to show
they are behind the team."
"The team has been faced with
crippling injuries all year but it
has still managed to pull some big
upsets in their clutch games.
"Students can show the players
today how much. they will be be-
hind them tomorrow in Columbus,"
Want Large Crowd
Pep rally officials want no repe-
tition of last year's sparsely at-
tended Michigan State game send-'
off or of previous pre-game rallies!
for home games this season.
"There's no reason why 5,000
students can't be outside Yost Field
House for the rally," Balzhiser
Comes To Rescue
A University Alumni Association
official, Robert 0. Morgan yester-
day rescued three employes of the
University Club in Chicago from
a locked vault.
The employes had been locked
in an office vault for more than
two hours in the morning by three
robbers who escaped with $2,500.
A trapped clerk shouted the com-
bination to Morgan.
Morgan is assistant general sec-
retary and field secrtary of the
A wafer-thin water glass fell
from an eighth floor window of
the snazzy Terrace Plaza Hotel
this morning, struck a fender
of a parked automobile, dent-
ing ' it, then bounced off into
the street, and didn't break.
It was not even chipped, said
Policemen Ralph Adams and
Joseph McCarthy, who were
summoned following the inci-
dent. They could not find out
who dropped the glass.
The problem facing this gener-
ation of Americans is to adapt our
institutions to a rapidly changing
industrial society and still pre-
serve individual liberty, accord-
ing to novelist John Dos Passos.
Dos Passos presented this propo-
sition to a Hill Auditorium audi-
ence last night saying that the
answer lay in the foundations set
by the earliest generation of Amer-
Americans haven't explained to
the rest of the world the basic
principal of freedom and its ap-
plication, he said, "maybe because
we don't understand it oursleves."

Try To Persuade LandlordsI
"We have tried to persuade the landlords," he said, in those

would be "reluctant to be the focal point of complaints."
"If you go out crusading" you're likely to run into opposition,
Dean Rea added. "People dislike being forced into doing anything."
Student Legislature has gone after the problem too, mainly from
the standpoint of apartment listings which landlords call into the
Office of Student Affairs.
A resolution was passed last year requesting that the listings
be made on a non-discriminatory basis. According to Tom Bleha,
'56, former chairman of the SL Human Relations Committee, those
in charge of listings felt that all available housing was badly needed,
and a compromise was worked out whereby those landlords who
accept Negroes or foreign students indicate that fact in the listings.
Several such cards are now on the listings board in the Student

Dismissed mathematics instruc-
tor H. Chandler Davis has filed a
formal complaint concerning his
dismissal and severance pay with
the American Association of Uni-
versity Professors, he said yester-
Although he has also requested
an investigation of his dismissal,
Davis asked the AAUP to give im-
mediatesattention to Regental re
fusal of severance pay. He filed
the complaint before the most re-
cent action of the University Board
of Regents definitely saying that
"under the circumstance, sever-
ance pay is not warranted."
He based his complaint on a
letter received from University
Secretary and Assistant Vice-Pres-
ident Herbert G. Watkins contain-
ing the information that the Re-
gents had indicated there would be
no severance pay.
Ackley Comments on Decision
Meanwhile, Chairman of the Eco-
nomics Department Prof. Gardner
Ackley released a statement ex-
pressing the "keenest disappoint-
ment at the Regents' action regard-
ing severance pay."
President of the University Chap-
ter of AAUP, Prof. Ackley said.
''I think that the University's ac-
tion was a serious mistake, which
threatens to undermine faculty con-
fidence in other aspects of the ten-
Prof. Ackley said, "This action
ignores the explicit provision con-
tained in the statement of Prin-
ciples on Academic Freedom and

ly and approved by the AAUP, rep-
resenting college faculties, and the
Association of American Colleges,
representing American colleges
"No Legal Status"
Adding that the "statement has
been generally accepted in academ-
ic circles as the definitive expres-
sion of the rights and responsibili-
ties of university faculties," Prof.
Ackley pointed out, "To be sure,
it has no legal status."
He added, 'however, "it has
strong moral force" and "it pro
vides the only generally accepted
definition of principles of tenure
which presumably underlie fac-
ulty appointments here and else-
where. Severance pay (or, as an
alternative, one-year notice) is an
integral part of the tenure sys-

that the Regents had given the

and careful deliberation.

visions in the Regents' by-laws re-
garding severance pay.

There appears to be little prospect for an early decrease in
the amount of discrimination in Ann Arbor housing.
Few contend that nothing should be done. Few suggest a solution.
Most calls for action are centered on the University. "The
University is big business" is the way it's often expressed, "and
they can pull a lot of strings if they want to." More specifically,
there are calls for the University to build more non-discriminatory
housing in order to put "more pressure on townspeople to take
whomever they can get."
Increase of 6,000
One high University official estimates an increase of 6,000
students by 1960 without a corresponding increase in housing,
because the financing of any future non-discriminatory dormitories
is about at "the end of the rope."
Others suggest the establishment of "uniform criteria for every-
one who expected to rent a room" to students.
"How can a University do anything about a person's private
home?" Dean of Women Deborah Bacon asked. "We don't have
any authority over private housing." She said Ann Arbor is no
different than any other place in the country,' pointing out that
