Barron, Eaddy Lead
'M' With 16 Points
Michigan guards Don Eaddy and
JimBarron scored 16 points apiece
last night to lead the Wolverine
basketball team to an easy 71-65
win. over an outclassed Butler
Although playing listless ball dur-
ing most of the encounter, the Wol-
verines gained an early 6-0 advan-
tage and were never headed.
Scoring Honors
Butler guard Wally Cox took
scoring honors for the night with an
18-point total, scoring 14 in the
second half as the Wolverines were
unable to halt the 6'-3" Bulldog
Obviously not emotionally up for
the tilt, Coach Bill Perigo's crew
played exceptionally well when
they had to, but Butler failed to
press the Wolverines during most
of the game.
A fast-breaking offense and a vir-
tually airtight defense built up 10-
4 and 27-12 leads in the first half,
which ended with Michigan holding
a 32-16 advantage. As the half was
drawing to a close, however, the
Wolverine offense became slipshod
at times and continued to be so in
the second half, which was an en-
tirely different story.

The Bulldogs outscored the!
Maize-and-Blue squad by a single
point during the last 20 minutes of
action, but the Michigan lead was
never seriously threatened. The

MOSCOW AP)--Soviet Russia in
a note warned the American gov-

The warning was contained in
a new note on the shooting down.
of a United States RB29 photo-
mapping bomber near the north-
east tip of Japan Nov. 7. The note
was handed the American ambas-
sador'yesterday and was broad-
cast by Moscow radio early today.
The incident took place near
the northeast tip of the Japanese
island of Hokkaido. The 11 crew-
men bailed out. One was found
dead and the other 10 suffered mi-
nor injuries.
The United States has sent
Russia two notes over the inci-
dent. One note, immediately aft-;

Assistant to President
Dodge, 63-year-old Detroit bank-
ers and Pres. Eisenhower's first
budget director, will have the non-
salaried title of special assistant to
the President. One of his primary
jobs will be to try to pull together
the conflicting views that have
been reported in the President's
official family on how best to block
Moscow's bid for cold war con-
In a letter made public by the
White House, Pres. Eisenhower
told Dodge he was designating him
to "assist and advise me in accom-
plishing an orderly development of
foreign economic policies and pro-
grams and to assure the effective
coordination of foreign economic
matters of concern to the several
departments and agencies of the
executive branch."
Proper Relation
"Because the formulation of for-
eign economic policy in many in-
stances is an integral part of the
formulation of national security
policy or of international financial
policy," Pres. Eisenhower said, "I
want you, as quickly as possible,
to establish appropriate working
relations with the National Advi-
sory Council on International Mon-
etary and Financial Problems, re-
spectively, to the end that in those
instances referred to the desired
integration will be effected."

'Hold Party Together'
He said the first task of Re-

the President is to "hold the par-
ty together and make a construc-
tive record of accomplishments in,
the 84th Congress."
"We have first got to cross the!
bridge of 1955 before we get to
1956," Sen. Knowland said.
He declined fresh comment on
an attack by Sen. Joseph R. Mc-'
Carthy (R-Wis) on President Eis-I

the President of displaying "a,
shrinking show of weakness" to-

At Peiping
Request Parley

United Nations Secretary General
Dag Hammarskjold has asked
Prime Minister Chou En-lai of Red
China for direct talks on the case
of the 11 American fliers held as
He suggested a meeting in Pei-
ping around. Dec. 26.
The UN released late yesterday
25 hours after it was dispatched to
Peiping by Hammarskjold, the text
of a brief cable asking for a meet-
ing. Hammarskjold said in the
UN Command Personnel
"The General Assembly of the
UN has requested me to seek the
release of 11 UN Command person-
nel captured by Chinese forces onr
12 January 1953 as well as of all
other captured personnel of the
UN Command still detained.
"Taking into consideration all
facts and circumstances the sec-
retary-general must, in this case,
take on himiself a special respon-
sibility. In the light of the concern
I feel about the issue, I would ap-
preciate an opportunity to take this
matter up with you personally. For
that reason, I would ask you
whether you could receive me in
Peiping. I would suggest a visit
soon after26 December and would,
if you accept my proposal, ask you
what date at about that time would
be suitable to you."
Full Weight of Office
Hammarskjold thus threw the
full weight of his office into what
he regards as the greatest assign-
ment so far handed the secretary
general. He dispatched the cable
at 5 p.m. Friday-within minutes
after the General Assembly ap-
proved 47-5 a resolution condemn-
ing Red China for jailing the avia-
tors and calling on him to act for
their release. -
A diplomat in the Soviet bloc in-
formed of Hammarskjold's dra-
matic and quick action, said he did
not expect much to come from it.
This diplomat pointed out that
the Assembly resolution entrusting
Hammarskjold with the assign-
ment also condemned Red China
for imprisoning the men and hold-
ing the other prisoners who desire
He said this was exactly the
wrong way to go about getting the
men out and he added that he
wondered just how anxious the
West was to have the men re-
leased. If they really wanted ac-
tion, he continued, they would have
left out the condemnation.
Malik Comments
Hammarskjold was reported to
have informed Henry Cabot Lodge
Jr., chief American delegate, and
Anthony Nutting, British minister
of state, of his plans. He also was
reported to have told, in separate
conference, Arthur S. Lall, India's
permanent delegate to the UN, and
Jacob A. Malik, Soviet delegate,
who had maintained throughout
heated Assembly debate that the
resolution would not have any ef-

port by the Citizens' Housing Com-
Based on a survey conducted
during the winter of 1953-54 by the
Committee and the University's
Survey Research Center, the re-
port gives no recommendations.
Florence Crane, committee chair-
man, said the purpose of the report
is to give an over-all picture of lo-
cal housing.
Ne Cost to City
The survey was made at no cost
to the city. Procedure used was
similar to that followed by the Cen-
ter in its standard operations.
Interviews were taken at 324
households selected at random. Of
those interviewed, 72 per cent con-
sidered the cost of local housing
too high. Forty-two per cent of the
sample sensed discrimination in
local housing on racial, religious or

Today's children are too big for
their benches, says the National
School Service Institute.
The Institute's 90-page report!
of a study conducted by Prof.
Frederick P. Thieme, of the an-
thropology department at the Uni-
versity, and former Ann Arbor
school teacher Dr. W. Edgar Mar-;
tin, also revealed that the old'
style bench-desk type of school
furniture used by previous gen-;
erations is on its way out.
Last summer, the two educa-
tors took 55 separate measure-
ments of 3,318 pupils in ten ele-
mentary and secondary schools in
the Wayne-Washtenaw countys
area. They found that present day
adolescents undergoing the char-'
acteristic "growth spurt" average
the height and weight of those two
years older a quarter century ago.
Martin attributed increased'
weight and growth tendency to
improved nutrition, control of#
communicable diseases, great ad-
vances in medicine, wider diffu-
sion and acceptance of nutritional
knowledge and standards.

While Sen. Knowland commended
the UN Assembly for its prompt-
ness of action, he rapped the na-
tions that abstained from voting.
He said their abstention seemed'
hard to comprehend because "they
are all nations" that did not fur-
