GOP eader
Special to The Daily
DETROIT-A cheer went up as-the 14th Congressional District
cast the majority of its 110 votes for John Feikens at the State-
Republican Convention here yesterday, assuring him of a second
term as the party's state chairman.
The votes of three more Wayne County districts gave Feikens a
total of 997 of the possible 1606 votes and led his opponent, Arthur
T. Iverson, to concede defeat.
Feikens' ability to pull votes out of the big areas such as Oak-
lal~d, Kent, and Wayne districts proved the deciding factor in his

Ice Squad Beats Minnesota
To Raise Playoff Hopes

Television viewers could have
switched channels but the capaci-
ty crowd of 8,500 that jammed
Yost Field House yesterday after-
noon had to watch until the bit-
ter, dismal end.
The high-flying Minnesota Go-
phers took a giant step towards
their first Big Ten crown in 18
years as they grounded out a 74-
65 triumph over a scrappy, but
out-manned Michigan five.
Bill Simonovich, a mammoth
6'10" 270-pounder, was the big-
gest of many guns in the Minneso-
ta scoring attack. The Gopher
center whipped in 28 points, 19
coming in the second half. ick
Garmaker, leading point getter
in the Western Conference, threw
in 20 points, and Chuck Mencel
garnered 17 markers.j
Kramer Nets- 25I
For Michigan, the sensational
Ron Kramer again led the way.
Playing at the center slot, and giv-
ing away 10 inches and many
pounds, the sophomore still man-
aged to flip 25 points through the
But Kramer couldn't do it all
by himself and Minnesota had too
much for the Wolverines. The
Gophers showed greater height,
more accurate shooting, better
floor play, and a stronger bench.
Minnesota began to open up a
bulge with two minutes gone in
the second half. Simonovich pick-
ed up six straight points for the
visitors while Michigan was be-
ing held to a lone field goal by
Captain Paul Groffsky. Then
Garmaker and Mencel hit from
the field, and with 14:15 remain-
ing in the game, the Gophers led,
The winners kept on applying
the pressure and it began to tell

At the 11:58 mark, the Maize
and Blue received a break. Groffs-
ky blocked a Garmaker shot, and
in the ensuing scramble, Garmaker
grabbed the Wolverine forward
and picked up his fifth personal
But Michigan could not take ad-
vantage of the gift. Instead, the
winners increased their lead. Five
points by the robot-like Simono-
vich, two by Gerry Lindsley, bro-
ken up only by a scoring jump shot
by Jim Shearon, gave Minnesota a
74-57 advantage with only two
minutes left in the game.
Michigan Opens Quick
In the beginning, however, the
upset-minded Maize ,and Blue
threw quite a scare into the Ozzie
Cowles-coached aggregation. For-
ward Jerry Stern brought the huge
crowd to its feet as he sent a one-
hand push shot through the hoop
to open the scoring. Kramer and
Tom Jorgenson followed Stern's
example, and pushed Michigan's
lead to 6-0.
The Maize and Blue kept on
scoring ... and the crowd kept on
roaring. When Kramer scored
from the field with 5:17 gone in
the opening half, the Wolverines
led '13-3. -. ~
But this was not to last. When

SINGAPORE (P)-Eight nations

separate agreements by the United
States hold at bay the Red Chi-

Along with plans for coordinat-
