Revenge ... and against the Big
Ten basketball champions .. . is
especially sweet.
The University of Michigan bas-
k'etball team closed out the 1954-55
season in high style here last night
as it mauled NCAA-bound Iowa,
Hot From the Floor
A sparse crowd saw the Wolver-
ines play one of their best games
of the season. The Maize and Blue
had a hot night from the floor,
hitting on 47 per cent of their field
attempts, passed well, controlled
the backboards, and tied up the
potent Hawkeye offense.
With 22 seconds gone in the
game, Paul Groffsky snared a re-
bound, threw a perfect lead pass
to Don Eaddy who went in2for an
easy lay-up. Michigan led, 2-0 ...
and not once throughout the con-
test did the Wolverines give up
that lead. Instead the hosts slow-
ly built up their advantage.
Three fouls, two by Tom Jor-
genson and one by Ron Kramer
made the score, 5-0. At the 5:29
mark, a right-hand hook shot
from the foul line by Kramer
boosted Michigan's lead to 11-4.
Iowa came back but could never
come closer than three points in

the first half. Michigan's biggest
edge in the initial 20 minutes wasi
11 markers.f
Fade Never Came
After the intermission, the 4,-t
500 spectators expected the Hawk-
eyes, rated one of the top clubs in
the nation, to come back. Most ex-
pected Michigan would fade-as
it has done in the past. Six straight
points by the visitors strength-
ened this impression. With 18 min-
utes remaining in the tilt, Iowas
had cut Michigan's lead to four
points, trailing 37-33.
But this was as close as the
Hawkeyes could get. The Wolver-
ines gradually increased their lead,;
and in the last 10 minutes of the
game, the smallest difference be-
tween the two squads was 10
Jorgenson enjoyed one of the
best nights of his career as he'
tossed 26 points through the hoop.
The stocky guard missed only four
of 16 charity tosses and connected
on seven of 17 from the field. Ead-
dy, Michigan's other back-court
man, also had a fine evening. He
scored 20 markers, hitting on nine
of 1" field goal tries and two for
two from the free throw line.
Eaddy Gets Ovation
Eaddy, a Senior, left the floor
with 1:34 remaining in the game.
The crowd, almost as one, rose and
gave him a standing ovation.
When, a minute later, Captain
Groffsky was replaced, the crowd
again rose to their feet.-
Though Groffsky only scored six
points, his last game for the Maize
and blue was a good one. He led
both teams in rebounds, capturing
eight, did an excellent defensive
job on Deacon Davis, and picked
up numerous assists.
Indict Mrs. Natvig
On Perjury Charge
Natvig, who see. off a sensation in
a Federal Communications Com-
mission hearing by denouncing her
own testimony, was indicted yes-
terday on nine charges of lying
under oath.

The upset victory broke a los-
ing streak which had stretched tos
five games. It enabled Michigan to
conclude its season in a four-wayl
tie for sixth place in the Big Ten.
Perigo's squad captured five vic-
tories in 14 attempts. The Wol-
verines' season mark was 11 wins
and 11 defeats. .
Perigo's Best Record
It Is Perigo's best record since
he came to Ann Arbor three years
For the season, Kramer led the
squad in scoring, racking up 352
points, aU average of 16.0. Jorgen-
son, with 333 tallies, was a close
second. In all, six wcen completed
the campaign averaging in double
figures. Jorgenson had the best eye
on the team, making 38 per cent of
his field attempts and 75 per cent
of his charity throws. Groffsky was
the top rebounder.
Pan hel Change
In Constitution
Panhellenic Association yester-
day returned to the sororities for
further consideration a proposed
Constitutional change concerning
nomination of officers from the
The original proposal stated that
members of the Board of Dele-
gates could make floor nomina-
tions at the meeting at which the
slate is presented and also when
the vote is taken.
The slate of nominees is chosen
by the Executive Council from ap-
plicants who have petitioned for an
office and have been interviewed.
Objections that women who had
neither petitioned nor had been
interviewed could be nominated
are overcome by the new amend-
ment. It also allows women who
have been defeated for one office
to run for another.
Requiring agreement of 12 soror-
ities, each of the other three ma-
jor Constitutional revisions were
passed by at least 13 houses.

:alled by SL. president Ned Si-
non, '55, after the SL failed both
Vednesday and Thursday last
eek to make a final decision on

"If we don't we'll have to meet

Parts one and two were approv-
ed tentatively at the last meet-
If SL decides to give $1,500 to the
Free University the Legislature
will have to vote again on the
whole motion.
Opposition led primarily by Paul
Dormont, '55, has snagged giving
$1,500 to the Free University
Questioned Benefits
Quoting from a book supposed-
ly received from the Free Univer-
sity he strongly questioned the
benefits of the exchange program.
Dormont proosed a substitute
motion delegating $1,500 to the
Free University only after a study
of the benefits of the present Free
University program.
He suggests giving the money to
SGC if the Free University pro-
gram is found seriously wanting.
Kohler To Defend
Heinz Kohler, exchange stu-
dent from Germany under the
Free University program, will be
at the SL meeting tonight to
speak in defense of the program.
SL President Ned Simon, '55,
told SL's open cabinet yesterday
he would not recognize any speak-
er more than three times tonight
to speak on any one motion.
He will also invoke a ten min-
ute time limit on all speeches for
and against motions tonight. Si-
mon referred cabinet members to
the SL by-laws pertaining to
length of speeches.

Group Turns
Down Dean's
Review Right
Assembly Association yesterday
tentatively turned down a provi-
sion for review of all new poli-
cies by the Dean of Women's of-
This was done by substituting
the phrase "cooperation with the
University administration" for a
clause, in an amendment to its
proposed constitution, which had
provided for review.
The "review" clause was first'
presented at last week's Assembly
Dorm Council meeting and has
since gained approval of a ma-
jority of independent women in
dormitories and League houses.
Approval by the housing units
will be necessary before the new
clause can be substituted in the
Heated Debate
Heated debate proceeded vote
by the Assembly Dorm Council
meeting on the substitute clause.
It reads: "Assembly Executive
board shall cooperate with the
University administration in the
formulation and maintenance of
policy and of high social and
scholastic standards."
Speaking against themotion Do-
lores Messinger, '55, last year's
Assembly president said, "I believe
in cooperation with the adminis-
tration but I do not believe it
should be stipulated in the con-

Fallout Predicted
It was predicted there might be
a dangerous radioactive fallout
from the lower part, or stem of
the atomic cloud near the control
This, however, failed to happen
immediately. Six hours after the
blast there was no report of seri-
ously high radiation anywhere, on
site or off.
The soldiers and Marines had
taken the impact of the blast well-
protected in six-foot trenches 5,-
500 yards away from ground zero
-the 500-foot tower from which
the device was exploded. No cas-
ualties were reported.
Highest Shot
It was the highest tower shot
ever held here; 300 feet was the
previous high. That and the clear
weather accounted for the amaz-
ing distances the flash was seen.
Speculation on the device itself
centered on the possibility it was
a new atomic trigger for the hy-
drogen bomb. The AEC would say
only it was a major effort for the
Livermore, Calif., laboratory, with
an assist from Los Alamos, N.M.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (P)-The biggest blast of the new atomic test
series flashed forks of light visible in a dozen states yesterday, caused
an earth rumble 30 miles away and sent scientists and soldiers scur-
