in their half of the inning. Two
Spartans got on base via walks off
pitcher Mary Wisniewski. Then
with one down Bob Powell hit a
double into left field scoring the
game winning run.
4 Parade of Pitchers
The first game featured a pa-
rade ofspitchers as Coach Ray
Fisher sent three hurlers to the
mound after Bill Thurston lost
his control in the sixth inning.
All of them failed to stop the
Michigan State sluggers. While
Coach Fisher used nearly every
available man, Michigan State
Coach John Kobs played only his
starting nine in each game.
Gene Snider and Thurston were
the big men for the Wolverines in
the opener as each man drove in
two runs. Snider hit a home run
in the fourth inning with a man

ting leader and Jim Sack each
drove in three, runs. Pitcher Ed
Hobaugh racked up seven strike-
outs while winning the game for
the Spartans.
Thurston Ties Game
Thurston, the losing pitcher in
the first game, came back in the
second game in a pinch-hitting
role. He hit the game tying home
run with two mates on board.
Until the fifth inning, the sec-
ond game was a pitchers' duel, but
Dick Idzkowski had more control
of the two pitchers. In his six in-
ning pitching stint, Dick Peter-
john of the Wolverines issued eight
bases on balls.
Four Michigan base hits scored
the runs but Michigan State
scored its runs on walks. Don Ead-

Highlighting the meet was light-
ning-fast Jim Golliday of North-
western who tied the world rec-

Reds Set Up
WARSAW, Poland ()-The So-
viet Union and seven East Euro-
pean Communist states set up a
unified military command yes-
terday to counter the North At-
lantic Treaty Organization.
Soviet Marshal Ivan Konev was
made supreme commander, with
headquarters in Moscow.
The eight allies :signed a 20-
year mutual security and friend-
ship treaty and a protocol group-
ing their military forces under a
single command. Marshall Konev,
the deputy Soviet defense min-
ister, has been a Communist party
member for 37 years.
Treaty Signed By Premiers
The treaty ceremonies took
place in a white and marble hall
of Poland's Parliament building.
Premiers of the eight nations-the
Soviet Union, Poland, Czechoslo-
vakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Roman-
ia, Albania and East Germany-
signed the documents.
Later, nearly 100,000 cheering
residents of Warsaw jammed into
Tzierdzinsky Square and heard top
Communist leaders hail the new
treaty as "a move for world
West Germany 'Dangerous'
Premier Nikolai Bulganin of the
Soviet Union declared the Paris
accords rearming West Germany
sponsored "a new and dangerous
"We want peace," he cried, "but
we will defend our countries by
all means."
The loudest cheers and ap-
plause came when Premier Bul-
ganin told the crowd -of Konev's
appointment as supreme com-
mander. He reminded the crowd
that it was Konev who led the
armies which liberated much of
Poland from the Nazis..
No Real Change
Western diplomats believe the
Russians have been in over-all
command of their satellites' arm-
ed forces for some time and that
today's Warsaw action does not
change the existing situation.
.But the pact gives the Russians
a legal framework under which
Soviet troops can remain in the
satellite nations through individ-
ual treaties between the Soviet
Union and each country.
Six Million Mlen
The United States government
estimates the armed strength of
these European Communist na-
tions at more than six million
men in from 175 to 225 Russian
divisions and 80 satellite divisions.
NATO divisions under Gen. Al-
fred M. Guenther number about
100, with West Germany to con-
tribute later a 12-division army
of 350,000 men.
Bulganin led -the procession of
premiers, foreign ministers and
defense ministers into the hall for
the ceremony winding up.-the four-
day conference.

Vaccine Report
Due Tomorrow


House announced yesterday it will
release a voluminous report to-
morrow on the Salk polio vaccine
The mass inoculation of first-
and second-grade school children
began picking up momentum
again, after a week-long suspen-
sion for new safety checks, as gov-
ernment scientific inspectors mov-
ed into the second of five labora-
tories making the serum.
Enough vaccine for more than
a million shots was released by the
U.S. Public Health Service late
Friday as a result of their inspec-
tion of the first plant on the list,
Parke, Davis & Co. of Detroit.
The check and doublecheck team
is now at the Eli Lilly & Cot labo-
ratories in Indianapolis. Other
plants to be visited, though not
necessarily by the same team, are
Pitman-Moore Co., Indianapolis;
and Sharp & Dohme, Inc. and
Wyeth, Inc., both of Philadelphia.
The product of a sixth manufac-
turer, Cutter Laboratories of Berk-
eley, Calif., has been withdrawn
for a special check.
Health officers in several states
which have received the newly
cleared Parke, Davis & Co. vaccine
announced plans for resuming the
voluntary inoculations at once, or
at least within a few days.
