Hyma Finds
New Hope'
In Lawsuit
pressing disappointment with
xa Wayne County Circuit Court de-
cision, Prof. Albert Hyma of the
history department yesterday re-
vealed that he possessed "new dis-
covery" information which, if
presented, might change the com-
pletion of the court's verdict.
The decision, handed down Fri-
. day by Circuit Judge Philip Elliott,
awarded the history professor
$4,000 in damages to be paid by
a "spiritualist," Lillian Lee of De-
Prof. Hyma was denied recom-
pensation of an additional $9,000.
He claimed he had lost the money
ii ill-advised business ventures
which Mrs. Lee had proposed.
Mrs. Lee Called "Fake"
Mrs. Lee, whose business advice
was supposedly based on commu-
nication with spirits, was called
a fake by Judge Elliott.
"The proof in this case estab-
lishes with a reasonable degree of
certainty that Mrs. Lee's represen-
tation that she had the power
to communicate with spirits of de-
parted persons was false;" Judge
Elliott said.
In denying Prof. Hyma the
$9,000, Judge Elliott said the pro-
fessor had been overly gullible,
and "virtually asks the court to
'believe he made no effort to use
his God-given ability to think for
Found 25 Letters
Prof. Hyma said yesterday that
he felt this statement to be a'c-
curate considering the evidence
M available during the trial. But the
discovery four days after the trial
of 25 letters which he previously
had thought lost caused Prof Hy-
ma to raise his hopes.
"This new information," he said,
"could possibly cause the court to
reconsider its decision." Prof. Hy-
-ma, said' he has no definite plans
in mind for an appeal or re-trial.
k"on Jan. 24 Judge Elliott stated
that the swindle I fell for wasn't
too important," Prof. Hyma said.
"'"He said hundreds of people had
fallen for it.

Chinese War
Flares Again
Off Coast
Reds Reaffirm Aim
To 'Liberate' Islands
By The Associated Press
The China offshore island war
flared up Friday night and yes-
terday in Formosa Strait where
both Communist and Nationalist
reports agreed the weight of hos-
tilities pow has shifted.
Nationalist Premier O. K. Yui
told the legislative Yuan that the
Matus and Quemoy, off Red Chi-
na's Fukien province coast facing
Formosa, would "in no circum-
stances" be given up without a
fight. And he said the United
States should see it that way,
Quemoy Threatened
Chinese Communists are report-
ed to be closing in with new long
range artillery for intensified
bombardment of Quemoy Island,
one of Chiang Kai-shek's last
footholds close to the Red Chinese
This latest report was inter-
preted in some quarters yesterday
as indicating a sharp speedup in
events which can lead to a major
showdown in the troubled Far
The Nationalist abandonment
of Nanchishan Island, 20 miles off
the mainland province of Che-
kiang, moved the immediate focus
of attention southward to Matsu
Island, now the northermost out-
post of Chiang's forces. Red moves
indicate a buildup to push the
Nationalists out of there. And now
comes the word of increased pres-
sure on Quemoy.
New 'Favorable Conditions'?
A Peiping radio broadcast yes-
terday boasted that seizure of
Nanchishan "Has provided more
'avorable conditions for the libera-
tion" of Formosa, Quemoy and
While the primary function of
Radio Peiping is psychological
warfare, there was some material
evidence to bear out the military
implications behind the propa-
ganda announcement.
A Nationalist source said a
small fleet 'of torpedo boats and
gunboats given the Chinese Reds
by the Russians has moved south
from Tsingtao toward the port of
Foochow opposite the Matsus.
Nationalists Give Version
The Nationalists gave this ver-
sion of the latest flareup:
A group of 11 Red gunboats and
armed, motorized junks Friday
night shelled tiny Wuchiu which
is 80 miles west of Formosa in the
Strait at a point about midway
between.Quemoy and the Matsus.
The Nationalists on the island,
fired back, reportedly damaging
two Red craft. Early yesterday,
Nationalist planes attacked Red
ships northwest of Wuchiu, re-1
portedly destroying a torpedo boat
and two of unspecified type.
No Invasion Attempt
The Defense Ministry said there
was no attempt at an invasion.
Wuchiu probably is one of the
few outposts in the Strait which
the Reds could' seize without pro-
yoking a crisis. They may yet try
to get it by way of claiming pro-
gress in avowed plans to "liberate"
Peiping radio trumpeted yester-
day the "liberation" of Nanchi-
shan, 140 miles northwest of For-,

mosa. A broadcast heard in Tokyo
said that Red landings on islands
north and south "compelled the
Chiang Kai-shek troops to flee."
The' Nationalists had said the
2,000 civilians on Nanchishan were
evacuated first by request. Peiping
said they were carried off "at bay-
onet point." The Nationalists said
fortifications were blown up to
render them useless to the Reds.

Michigan Darns Trip
After 7-2 Triumph
Dreams of gaining a playoff
berth in the Western Intercolle-
giate Hockey League became a
sudden reality last night, as a
driving Michigan sextet pounded a
7-2 win over North Dakota at the
Coliseum while Colorado College
was eliminating Michigan Tech,
4-3, in overtime.
Michigan has now clinched sec-
ond place, culminating a season-
long up-hill climb to make the
much-sought-after trip for the
eighth straight time to Colorado
Springs, where the NCAA hockey
championships will be held on
March 11-12.
Another Hat Trick
It was all Michigan for the sec-
ond night in a row. Graceful cen-
ter Bill MacFarland was the cen-
ter of attraction in the brilliant
offense with three goals for his
fifth "hat trick" of the season and
three assists. Tom Rendall came
through with his fourth and fifth
goals of the weekend series, while
wings Jerry Karpinka and Dick
Dunnigan also added one apiece.
North Dakota was much sharper
than in last night's 7-0 drubbing,
but the brilliant goaltending of
'M' goalie Lorne Howes, especially.
in the hectic third period, made}
the difference.
Rendall Scores First
Rendall got the Wolverines off
to another flying start at 4:18 of
the first period, when with Mac-.
Farland cleverly skating interfer-
ence, he slammed the puck by
S i o u x goalie Jerry "Spike"'
A freak goal credited to Dunni-
gan came right after and seemed,
to break the visitor's spirit.

BOISE, Idaho - National Chairman Paul M. Butler said last

he said, "the wrong Administration in office for the wrong purposes,
doing the wrong things, and for the wrong people."
Butler lashed out at what he called the administration's "lead-
