Molotov's move came in Moscow
where the Foreign Office made
public an interview by him sug-
gesting that Russia would be wil-
SIng to delay the European securi-
ty conference it has proposed for
Nov. 29 if the Western Powers
would delay ratification of the new
Western European Union treaties.
Dules and Mendes-France pro-
longed their talks here long enough
to have a quick look at news re-
ports of the proposal. They agreed
on its informal reection, which
was the effect of their communi-
que. If necessary, officials said,
it will be formally rejected.
From the communique and from
information provided by officials
these other points stood out in the
1.kDulles and Mendes-France
agreed that the organization of
three new Communist divisions,
two of them armored, in Northern
Viet Nam creates a serious new
threat in Indochina.
Critically important matter of
continuing American financial sup-
port for French forces in South
Viet Nam, at the rate of several
hundred million dollars a year, was
left to other negotiations.
2. Dulles agreed to consider use
of United States influence to try
and prevent any outside agitation

"hopefully" possibilities for estab-

France ahd Germany as a step
toward creation of a united and
peaceful Europe.
4. Associates privately confirmed
the usual assurances of a commu-
nique that the talks occurred in a
friendly, cooperative atmosphere.
This was a matter of some signifi-
cance this time since Dulles had
deep misgivings about the French
Premier following the French As-

fense Community last August.
5. Dulles assured Mendes-France
that when France makes a formal
appeal for British and American
support of an agreement with Ger-

territory, the United States gov-
ernment will do whatever it pos-
sibly can to give such support.

Rose Bowl Plans
Set byBuckeyes
'M' Cited for 'Champion' Calibre
Game, Despite Shattering Loss
Daily Sports Editor
Special To The Daily
COLUMBUS - A truly great Ohio State football team sent this
city into ecstacies yesterday afternoon as the Buckeyes conclusively
established their right to an undisputed Big Ten title and a January 1
Rose Bowl bid.
The dauntless Ohioans hammered a game band of Wolverines into
submission, 21-7, after Michigan had taken an early 7-0 lead and an
upset appeared to be in the making.
Coach Woody Hayes' gridders were, not to be denied as they
turned an intercepted pass in the closing minutes of the first half into
the tying score, and then rammed across two last quarter touchdowns,
Drive Stops One Foot Short
With the score tied late in the third period, the Buckeyes stopped
Michigan on the one-foot line after four plays had gained as many
yards for the Wolverines. That magnificent goal-line stand proved to

A 'DARK DAY IN COLUMBUS-But bright for Pasadena-bound OSU fans, who watched intricate plays like the one shown above. Thousands of homebound Wol-
verine fans sat glued to television sets all afternoons, with facial expressions varying from premature delight to solemn resignation.

All Campus
Quiet After
Final Loss
While people were cutting up in
Columbus last night, it was pret-
ty quiet in Ann Arbor.
Greeting each other with muf-
fled "hello's," students ambled
along slowly, thinking of roses
that never were.
"It would have been so bad if
they'd really killed us," one stu-
dent said, "but it looked so close-
after the first half I thought- we
had it sewed up."
Television sets blared all over:
town, watched by large numbers
of students and townspeople. The!
Union cafeteria was jammed and
noisy-until the last quarter when
it quieted down.
In the beginning, television
sound wasn't working properly and
overly-excited fans let off steam
by cursing the set every time a
sign appeared saying, "Our sound
is not up to standard."
There wasn't much to do in;
Ann Arbor last night to ease the
sting of seeing the country's most
surprising team come so close, only
to be repelled by Cassidy & Co.

'Roses Redder on OSU Side of Stadium


Special to The Daily
COLUMBUS, Ohio - It snowed
once again for the Michigan-Ohio
State football game, but this time
it was a snow of paper from the
stands, a snow of tears from Michi-
gan rooters and a snow of cheers
for Rose Bowl-bound OSU.
The blizzard of paper and cheers
came at the game's end, as delir-
ious Ohio State partisans realized
they were headed for Pasadena in
the first game they've played there
since New Year's Day, 1950.
Torn newspapers and tissue pa-
per cascaded fromn the upper dec
onto the field, reminding onlookers
of the "snow bowl" game here in
1950, which Michigan won, 94.
No Goal Posts
After the game was over and the
two marching bands had left the
stadium, the only visual reminders
of the titanic battle were two
mounds of paper where the goal
posts had once been, and two score-
boards bearing the legend: "Ohio
21-Michigan 7."
But there were reminders of the
game in the minds r f all, who saw
it. For some, it later seemed a
little unreal, foreign to memories
fuzzy from too much to drink.
For other rooters of both teams,
the memory of the game came lat-

er yesterday when they were asked
to speak louder. They couldn't-
they were too hoarse.
For still other Wolverine fans
the game's memory was partly su-
perseded by the struggle to buy
tickets. Friday night the sellers
were naming the prices. Then it
rained early yesterday.
With leaden skies mercifully
withholding their wet contenes dur-
ing the game, ticket prices- were
practically being named by buy-
ers at noon yesterday.
Some OSU students sold their
tickets and watched the game over
television. They weren't aln-.p
wards of 50,000,000 football fans
throughout the country a i s o
watched the spectacle on TV.
OSU's Screams Overpowering
During the first half of the con-
test Michigan rooters were quite
vocal in their support. By midway
in the last half, however, they
didn't have a chance. Ohio State
partisans drowned them out with
their freizied screaming.
Block M's OSU counterpart,
Block O, performed to the delight
of fans here all through the game.
One' of their stunts required flip-
ping flashcards through 45 sepa-
rate ovements.
During half - time, both bands
gave rooters a show which will' long
be remembered here. Michigan's
band did part of last week's show,
playing "Brazil" as a huge coffee
percolator brewed java.
Both Bands At Best
Also in the show were the "St.
Louis Blues" and "Sh-Boom"
dance routines. After the Michigan
band left the field the Ohio State
marching band brought the crowd
to its feet with a show called
"Music in the American Scene."
Biggest production was a huge
dragon formed by the band, which
breathed smoke and roared, only
to have its head cut off and fall to
the ground as a student dressed as
a knight beheaded it.

Following the game both goal-
posts disappeared beneath an ava-
lanche of OSU students. One even
came prepared with a small saw,
which speeded up the job consid-
More than 6,000 Michigan stu-
dents, who came here for the game,
left the stadium with memories of
a sad losing battle. They headed
to temporary residences in local
fraternities and sororities to pre-
pare for the evening's big dates.
In these, anyway, they had some-
thing to look forward to.
But as they left the horseshoe-'
shaped stadium, some with tears
streaming down their cheeks, they
couldn't help reflecting that the
wrong set of rooters was singing
something Michigan fans had them-
selves sung at local parties and
bars Friday night.
The song was "California, Here
We Come."

The Weekly Glenville Demo-

with a front page, bearing only

Noise Called
Only Object
Of Grid Fan
Gone are the days when a foot-
ball fan could cite mere enjoyment
as his excuse for watching his
Alma Mater:
Now, according to a new theory,
it's all psychological. People go to
football games to make noise and
let off steam.
"Stadiums are the ony places
left where a person can be noisy,"
one writer says.
TD Screaming Excuse
"Sometimes a fellow just wants
to stand up and scream but hef
doesn't dare, except when a touch-
down is being made," he continues.
Alumni, who thought they came
to games because thye liked foot-r
ball, learn now it's just to get rid'
of complexes.
Prof. Dorwin Cartwright of the;
psychology department said the
theory sounds reasonable.
No Problems Solved
"Football games undoubtedly
help relax tensions but they don't
solve many basic problems," Prof.;
Cartwright noted.
The theorist, a Detroit Free
Press writer, also proposed that
"this is the most shushed-up civil-
ization of all time."
A student laughed and remark-
ed, "If this is the most shushed-
up civilization, the others must
have been pretty noisy. .
Prof. Cartwright said the state-
ment would be "hard to prove."
He noted, "When you think of the;
New England Puritan period, it's
hard to accept a statement like
Another member of the psychol-
ogy department refuted the theory,
saying he himself went to football
games simply because "because
they're a lot of fun.'

W orld Famous Baritone
Fired Twice for Singing
Distinguished Metropolitan Opera baritone Leonard Warren, who
will appear at 8:30 p.m. today in Hill Auditorium, was twice fired
because of his singing.
The first time was in a ,Manhattan fur establishment. Officials
objected to his singing while counting mink and muskrat skins.
Later the director of New York's Radio City Music Hall Glee
Club discharged Warren becauseti

be the straw that broke Michigan',
99 yards for the score all Colum-
bus was waiting for.
With 44 seconds left in the game
and Michigan still trying desper-
ately to tie the score, Howard
"Hopalong" C a s s a d y plowed
through left guard from the one to
plant an insurance touchdown.
Diminutive Tad Weed kicked his
third perfect conversion as 82,-
438 fans turned the Ohio State sta-
dium into a madhouse.
The Big Ten athletic directors
will cast their ballots for the Rose
Bowl nominee tonight, but the vote
will be a mere formality as the
Buckeyes won their ninth confer-
ence crown with a 7-0 record, and
boast their first perfect season
since 1944.
'M' Ties for Second
The Wolverines, who outplayed
Ohio State for three frustrating
quarters- yesterday, dropped into
a tie with Wisconsin for second
place in the Western Conference,
each with 5-2 records. That is the
highest Michigan has finished since
1950 when it won 'the title and the
Rose Bowl berth. .
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's Wol-
verines marched 68 yards after
the opening kickoff to score before
Ohio had its hands on the ball. On
the first two plays from scrimmage
tailback Danny Cline picked up a
total of thirty-three yards to put
the ball on State's 35. Nine plays
later Michigan was faced with a
fourth and one situation on the
seven yard line.
The next play completely fooled
the Buckeyes as Fred Baer drove
into the center of the line and hand-
ed off to Lou Baldacci who in turn
pitched out to Cline who swept left
end all alone for a touchdown. Kra-
mer's kick was perfect.

Students compromise approxi-
mately 30 per cent of his total

Local drugstore proprietors con-

Optimism Replaces War Setbacks for Trigotn

Trigon, the University's only local fraternity,- may finally be re-
covering from setbacks received during World War II.
Bolstered by a special Interfraternity Council ruling last spring,
which enabled the local to activate immediately 13 men without a
pledge training period, the fraternity has not only become an active
organization again but is making optimistic future plans.
Ten of the original 13 to be activated became members of the
fraternity and are presently experiencing an intensive post-initiation
training program.I
Pledge Period Replaced
IFC officials stipulated as part of their special ruling that Trigon
give the new actives post-initiation on training in place of the usual
pledge period.
Bob Roensch, Grad., told IFC's Executive Council last week the
training period was moving successfully and should reach completion
The 10 new members, all active in local church young people's
organizations, bring Trigon's membership to 17.
Most Residents Active

"Trigon would never join a national organization," Roensch stat-
°d emphatically Friday, while discussing the comeback of his frater-
nity during the past few months.
"Our fraternity is based on the three-fold principle 'duty to God,'
'duty to University,' and 'duty to each brother'," he said emphasizing
that more than lip service was involved in the first ideal.
Church Work Voluntary
P.eligious work is purely voluntary, but the fraternity generally
only pledges men already active in local religious groups.
Organized in 1905 by 12 members of the Brotherhood of St. An-
drew (national men and boys' organization of the Episcopal Church),
the fraternity grew steadily until World War I.
Although the usual wartime difficulties occurred, the local boun-
ced back stronger than ever after the war, reaching maximum strength
in the 1920's.
Seldom possessing more than 30 men in the active ranks during
its history, Trigon refuses to pledge a membership exceeding house
