"AM' Dominates Play
Despite the loss of its outstand-
ing forward, Tommy Rendall, for
the remainder of the season, Mich-
igan managed to dominate play
completely in recording its twenty-
first consecutive encounter without
defeat against the Spartans.
Coach Vic Heyliger, pleased with
his squad, which equalled its sea-
son's high in scoring, pointed to
the return of defenseman Bob
Schiller as the key to the Wolver-
ine victory.
Wearing a mask: to protect his
face, injured in a pre-Christmas
game, Schiller tallied one goal, had
two assists, and led the stellar de-
fense which aided goalie Lorne
Howes in chalking up hl- first
shutout of the season.
MacFarland Scores
It was Schiller's first assist on
the second goal of the evening
which began the demoralization of
the Spartans. Driving in all alone
on the Michigan State net early
in the second period, Schiller wait-
ed until the last second to pass the
puck to MacFarland who drove it
past the off-balanced Spartan
goalie, Ed Schiller.
Jerry Karpinka, with the aid of
MacFarland and Dick Dunnigan,
had begun the scoring at 11:58 of
the initial period, but Michigan

Moise To Speak
To Math Students
High school mathematics stu-
dents from Michigan cities and
Toledo will visit the University,
Jan. 15.
Prof. Edwin E. Moise will speak
to the group, sponsored by the
undergraduate Math Club, on
"Variations of the First Topolggi-
cal Problem."
Students from Central Catholic
High School, Toledo, will have a
panel discussion on the duodeci-
mal system.

Several of the Democrats who
now control both houses voiced
uneasiness over the President's
plan to trim the armed forces'
manpower and put more emphasis
on air power and on "new weap-
ons, especially those of rapid and
destructive fighting power."
Sen. Richard A. Russel . (D-Ga.),
who will head the Senate Armed
Services Committee, said he may
re-establish a special preparedness
sub-committee with broad powers
to look into defense policies and
Similar Group Before
"I am seriously considering this
to deal with a number of prob-
lems," Sen. Russell told a reporter.
Such a watchdog group operated
under the chairmanship of Sen.
Lyndon Johnson (D-Tex), now
the majority leader, before the Re-
publicans took over control of
Congress in 1953.
In general, Democrats as well as
Republicans continued to praise-
with some reservations-the 33-
point program outlined by the
President Thursday.
The White House reported pub-
lic reaction, judging from tele-
grams which came in, was "prac-
tically unanimous" in favor of the
President's message, which severa'
Democrats on Capitol Hill de
scribed as "somewhat New Deal-I
ish" in tone.
Complain of Theft
More than one Democrat ex-
pressed the view that President
Eisenhower had stolen much of
the Democrats' campaign thunder
with his program.
Along with the defense ques-
tion, these were some principal
points on which congressional re-
action showed signs of division:
Wages-President Eisenhower'st
proposal to raise the nationwide
minimum wage to 90 cents from 751
an hour got a generally favorablet
reception, though some lawmakers1
called for a bigger raise and oth-
ers said a 15-cent increase mightI
be too much.
Farm Prices-Democrats in both
houses tended to turn thumbsj
down on the President's request t
that Congress let the new flexibleI
price support system alone. t

of the Army Robert T. Stevens

that he is leaving office soon. "I
have never felt better in my life
and I am not resigning," he said.

tal anguish he has been suffer-7
ing" following his bitter dispute!
with Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R-

Washington has been filled withl
reports this week that Stevens
might step out around Feb. 4, tak-

n~~~ak With Italy',f" {

PARIS WP)-France has submit-
ted detailed plans for an arms
pool project which it hopes will re-
pair the damage inflicted on Allied
unity by French rejection of the
European Defense Community.
Reliable informants said yester-
day a memorandum containing
these details was in the hands of
the six nations to be linked with
France in the new Western Euro-
pean Union-Britain, West Ger-
many, Belgium, the Netherlands,
Italy and Luxembourg.
Part of the ground lost with the
defeat of EDC was recaptured
when the seven nations signed the
WEU treaty establishing a frame-
work for bringing a rearmed West
Germany into NATO.
Premier to Discuss Plan
French Premier Mendes-France,
fresh from his narrow but -solid
parliamentary victory in getting
the National Assembly to ratify
WEU, will discuss the arms pool
idea with Italian and West Ger-
mnleaders in" Rome and Baden-
Baden next week in advance of the
arms pool conference Jan. 17.
He undoubtedly will urge Ital-
ian Premier Mario Scelba. and
West German Chancellor Konrad
Adenauer to endorse the project.
Officially, contents o f t h e,
French memorandum still are se-
cret, but French sources disclosed
enough of it to show that it re-
peats some of the features of the
European Steel and Coal Commu-
nity, Schuman plan, the North At-
lantic Treaty Organization, and
even of the ill-fated EDC itself.

In this respect, as viewed from a
French domestic political .angle, it
appears to be an effort by Mendes-
France to win support from some

Traywick. associate professor of economics at Michigan State,
said the committee is planning to make important policy decisions
by a "select few" of its members. He also said that since Prof.
Oppenheim, in his recent Mich-*,

legality rule for determining anti-!

Cites Court Deciion
Commenting on the article, Prof.
Oppenheim pointed out that, while
he definitely is in favor of the
rule of reason, the Supreme Court
has itself supported that doctrine
since the historic Standard Oil
case of 1911.
1He added that the rule of rea-
son is not, as Traywick assumes,
in conflict with the "per se" ille-
gality rule. He said that certain
practices are inherently against
competition and are therefore un-
reasonable per se. These would in-
clude any market price fixing

major policy decisions would be
made by a select few of the Com-

"The co-chairmen have the obli-
gation to see that the report sets
forth the thinking of the com-

Poll Reveals Students

At last it can be reported.
Michigan students are well satisfied with the University.
A Daily poll asking: "If there was one thing you could change
about the University, what would it be?" has found that most stu-
dents would just as soon leave things as they are.
There were some suggested changes, but they were varied. Top-
ping the "proposed change" department was the recommendation to
remove the driving ban.
