'An American, Not
Southern Dilemma'
enson yesterday called the racil
problem "an American, nota
Southern, dilemma" that cannot b
solved until there is a change i
the minds and hearts of men.
Stevenson told 5,200 Universit
of Minnesota students and facult
members civil rights are "a mat
ter of grave national concern whe

were to the Autherine Lucy an
Emmett Till cases in Alabama an
Mississippi. At Cicero, Ill., severa
years ago mob violence greeted a

"Before we cast a stone at Ala
bama," Stevenson said, ';it migh
be well for those of us who live i
some of the great Northern state
to ask ourselves in candor how th
Negro minority is faring in ou
own communities."
Opening a five-day campaign fo:
votes in the March 20 Minnesot
presidential primary, Stevenso
declared "the Democrats are o
the way back to Washington.'
When they get there, he said, "a
American citizen who has the habi
of original thought will no longe
be a displaced person."
He was starting a five-day swing
through the state in his drive fo
Minnesota support in the state's
March 20 presidental primary, i
which he opposes Sen. Estes Ke-
fauver (D-Tenn).
Hisuniversity audience applaud
ed when he said, "There is no ares
in which partisan advantage shoul
be more subordinated to nationa
interest than in the conduct of ou
foreign relations."
Sees Better 'Treatment
"I hope and confidently believe
that the Eisenhower Administra-
tion will get more responsibl
treatment from the Democrats ir
1956 than it gave in 1952," th
presidentialhopeful said.
"And I can at least hope, an
I confidently believe, that in these
perilous times even Secretary Dul-

can be secure until the liberties of
every individual are secure.
Auto Workers

DETROIT () - Studebaker-
Packard .Corp.'s Clipper Division
Friday summoned 5,500 laid-off
workers to return to work Monday.
It was the first major recall in
the auto industry, where layoffs
and slowdowns have been the rule
since Jan. 1. An estimated 48,000
of the industry's 800,000 produc-
tion workers now are on furlough
or indefinite layoff. Studebaker-
Packard furloughed workers on its

time, as did other auto-makers in
making layoffs, that the reason
was to bring production into line
with retail sales and thus reduce
dealer stocks, which have been at

record levels this year.

Daily Sports Editor
Special To The Daily
HOUGHTON-Michigan shattered the myth of Michigan Tech
here last night with a precision-smooth 5-2 win to assure itself of its
ninth straight NCAA playoff berth.
Colorado College's last chance to overtake the Wolverines for
second place in the Western Intercollegiate Hockey League and for
a playoff bid were destroyed with the Tigers' humiliating loss to Den-
ver, 10-3.

Tommy Rendall paced Michi-
gan's attack with two goals while
Captain Bill MacFarland, Bob
Schiller, and Ed Switzer each gar-
nered one.
Taking advantage of a rather
weak Tech defense, forwards Mac-
Farland, Rendall, Switzer, and
Neil McDonald continually stick-
handled their way successfully in
on goalie Bob McManus. It was
only McManus' great skill in turn-
ing aside 32 shots that kept the
game from becoming a rout.
Brilliant Passing
Michigan's beautifully executed
passing plays were a big factor

... two big goals
from the beginning. The first goal
came at 5:27 when MacFailand
flipped the puck to McDonald near
the net.
Seeing no opening, McDonald
drove it back to Schiller near the
blue line and the defensman

Only 25 seconds later, before
the stunned Huskies could regain
their composure, MasFarland skat-

taking a pass from Rendall, fooled
McManus again for Michigan's
second point.

Judge Sends
To Solitary
Harold A. Johnson, found guilty
of murder in the first degree
Thursday, was sentenced yesterday
to life imprisonment in solitary
confinement by Judge James R.
Breakey, Jr.
The life penalty is mandatory In
Michigan. Johnson's chances of
ever being free on parole are slight.
Only a governor's pardon can over-
ride the sentence.
A Circuit Court jury of eight
women and four men returned a
verdict of guilty to the charge that
Johnson shot to death his one-
year-old daughter, Margaret, while
she lay asleep in her crib Jan. 9.
Johnson's wife and daughter,
aged three, also died by his hand
that same evening.
The convict will be lodged in
Southern Michigan Prison. Al-
though the sentence calls for soli-
tary confinement, this part of the
penalty will not be carried out as
the prison does not have facilities
for such punishment.

from Autherine Lucy, the Na-

On Wednesday, United States
District Judge H. Hobart Grooms
ordered Miss Lucy reinstated at

Promptly, the university trustees
expelled the coed for making false
charges against the school.
The charges that university offi-

Niehuss Clarifies
'U' Plans On Bid
A second citizens' committee has
been formed in Grand Rapids to
back Michigan State University in
attempt to establish a four 'year
MSU branch.
F. D. Pace, a member of the
Grand Rapids - MSU Committee
said yesterday "positive interest"
in establishing such a branch has
been shown by MSU officials.
University officials met with the
Grand Rapids Citizens' Commit-
tee for Medical Education recently
in response to queries whether the
University would be interested in
establishing a branch.
'U' Would Consider
At that time University Presi-
dent Harlan H. Hatcher said the
University would "most seriously
consider" a four year branch in
Grand Rapids.
MSU Director of Extensions Dur-
ward B. Varner said yesterday he
had conferred with members of
the Grand Rapids-MSU Commit-
tee at their request Wednesday.
"They asked me if MSU would
be interested in a four year branch
at Grand Rapids. I told them we
would be if the local citizens
wanted it," Varner said.
University Vice-President and
Dean ofdFaculties Marvin L.Nie-
huss told the Daily yesterday that
the University is interested only
if it is the desire of Grand Rapids'
citizens to have a University
branch there.
"We will continue to negotiate
only so long as the opinion of. the
Grand Rapids Citizens' Committee
represents the opinion of the com-
munity." Niehuss commented.

if the community is opposed and
we won't oppose any other insti-
tution that wants to establish a

'Pace described the committee as
being composed of interested cit-
izens, MSU alumni and "other
friends of MSU. He said his com-
mittee has had no contact with

Niehuss stressed that before a
branch of any school is establish-
ed, a good deal of preliminary
study must be made.
"You don't dash out and estab-
