Fraternity To Return

Interfraternity Council executive committee last night decided to
re-admit a fraternity to campus in the near future.
Final decision as to which fraternity it will be-Tau Epsilon Phi

MSC Hosts Big Ten
Illinois Risks String
By STEVE HEILPERN
This may be Michigan's year to
step out of the bridesmaid's role.
The Wolverine tracksters stand
an excellent chance of dethron-
ing four-time champion Illinois as
the forty-fifth annual indoor Big
Ten Track and Field Champion-
ships get-underway tonight at
Michigan State College's Jenison
Field House in East Lansing.
T h i s evening's preliminaries
will begin at 7 with the finals
scheduled for 1 p.m. tomorrow.
While Indiana and Iowa also
loom as major contenders for the
title, most track experts have
agreed that Michigan's well-bal-
anced team will probably be Il-
linois' biggest headache.
The Maize and Blue have been
good-but not quite good enough-
in their last four championship
tries. Don Canham's teams fin-
ished second to the Champaign
outfit in '51, '52 and '53, and was
barely edged out for second place
last year by Indiana.
Canham and Prof. Phil Dia-
mond, Michigan track expert, be-
lieve Illinois to be slightly strong-
er, but point-out that the meet's
site evens up things. This is the
first time in a few years that the
meet hasn't been held in Cham-
paign's Illinois Armory, and a rel-
atively unfamiliar confine may se-
riously hinder the Illini's chances.
Iowa has the potential to win,
but is generally considered a year
away from- championship caliber.
Indiana, last year's runner-up, can
challenge only if Olympic star Milt
Campbell is in top form; and
Campbell hasn't been up to par
recently because of a lingering leg
The Wolverines are favored in
four events - the 880, mile, high
jump and mile relay.
Pete dray has run the half-mile
in 1:52.8 this year, making him
the favorite in the event, but Hank
Cryer of the Illini has run under
1:50 outdoors. This could well be
the closest race of the meet.
John Moule is the best bet in
the mile run, but the Michigan
captain isn't alone in the field;
Rich Ferguson of Iowa, Indiana's
Jim Lambert and Karl Jonsson of
Illinois are all topnotch milers and
are capable of winning.
See MICHIGAN, Page 3
swinning time was 18:21.8, fully
ten seconds slower than Konno's
NCAA record which was set in
1952 at East Lansing.
Final Heats Pay Off
All of the six point-worthy
places were earned in the final
two heats. Chuck Stephanos of
Ohio State won the second heat
with a time that placed him
fourth in the race, behind Iowa's
Ross Lucas who trailed O'Reilly in
the third heat.
Stephanos' three points were
added to the seven that Konno
earned to give OSU a 10 point
total for the first night's activity.
O'Reilly was credited with the five
points which rated the Wolverines
an early second place tie in the
tourney. Lucas' third place finish
was worth four points for Iowa.
Rounding out the scoring were
Bill Kerr of Indiana who won two
points for firiishing fifth and Glen
Johnston whose one point for
sixth place ,carried Iowa into a tie
with Michigan behind the leading
O'Reilly was hard-pressed to
edge Lucas for the runnerup spot
in the opening event. After lead-
ing Lucas for the first 600 meters,
the fast-developing Wolverine was
matched stroke for stroke by the
Iowan until a last-minute sprint
earned O'Reilly second place by
only three seconds.
Both O'Reilly and Lucas were
well over a minute slower than the
victorious Konno. O'Reilly's time
was 19:41.6, while Lucas swam
the 1,500 meters in 19:44.9.
Two other Michigan tankers
participated in last night's race.
Harrison Wehner finished just out
of the scoring in eighth place with
a time of 20:59.5. Wolverine Tom
Prunk's 21:30.7 rated him far
away from point honors.
Wehner led Kerr early in the
third heat and gave promise of
contributing to Michigan's score
with a possible fifth place finish.
But Kerr outlasted the fading
Wolverine to gain fourth in the
heat and fifth in the race.

question of whether we will have

In reply to the statement that a
military Germany is necessary to
preserve and strengthen peace in
that area, Nowak said, "General-
ly speaking, the rearmament of
any country will lead to war. In
Germany's history, rearmament
has always led to war."
Points Out Contradictions
Pointing to contradictions in the
argument for rearming Germany,
.he commented that a half-million
man German army will not be an
effective force against the Rus-

value," he said, "it can only serve
to provoke war. Our policy, if con-

Cites Other Agreements
"Who will lead this new army?"
he asked. "There are no other gen-
erals than those under Nazi Hit-
ler," he commented, "so it will be
trained by the same Nazi offi-
cers that trained Hitler's army."
Nowak cited the program of the
Yalta and Potsdam agreements as
the real solution to the German
problem. "They provided for the
