EVANSTON, IlL.-"We shouldn't
have won, but we did anyway;
sometimes the spirit goes up and
you come through."
With these words assistant coach
Bob Betzig summed up the Michi-
gan wrestling team's uphill stuggle
that finally culminated in a second
straight Big Ten Championship,
last night.
Battling all the way, the Wol-
verines edged pre-tournament fav-
orite Iowa, 63-59.
In the battle which everyone had
S been waiting for, Captain M~ike
Rodriguez pinned Illinois' Larry
TenPas in the 157 pound division.
The two men have been arch rivals
since their first meeting at Cham-
paign last year and TenPas step-
ped down one weight for the tour-
nament expressly to face Rod-
It was an extremely fast match,
and at times in the first period the
scoreboard couldn't keep up with
the action. The round ended with
TenPas ahead by a slight 6-5 mar-
With only :35 of the second
period gone, Rodriguez escaped to
knot the score. Both men then
gained simultaneous pin holds and
for almost one minute the upper
position continuously changed
Finally with the crowd on its
feet and cheering, Rodriguez held
TenPas' shoulders to .the mat for
two seconds fot the fall.
"It was worth coming all the
way just to see this match," said

track giants here yesterday.
Before a scant 2,454 enthusiasts, many of them from the Michi-

tain the Conference indoor title.
The team standings read Michigan-57 9/10 points; Iowa- 46

Lloyd Talks
With Nehru
NEW DELHI, India (P)-British
Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd
conferred yesterday with Prime
Minister Jawarhal Nehru after
flying here from the troubled Mid-
dle East.
Official sources said one of the
main topics in the 22-hour meet-
ing was the Baghdad Pact, a chief
cause of friction between some
Arab states and the West. In the
past Nehru has denounced the
pact, among whose members are
Britain and Pakistan.
Indian and Pakistan are at odds
over several points, including the
future status of Kashmir.

Senator George D. Aiken (R-
Vt,), who wants the present flex-
ible supports continued, told a re-
'Will Be Defeated'
"My guess is that rigid supports
will be defeated by from five to
seven votes."
The Senate is under agreement
to start voting Thursday.
The initial test should come on
a move by Senator Clinton P. An-
derson (D-NX.), former secretary
of agriculture, to eliminate a rigid
support provision for cotton, corn
and peanuts from an omnibus bill
that has been debated for most of
the past two weeks.
Voted Against Bill
Two years ago the Senate by a
49-44 margin voted to end rigid
wartime supports and approved a
system of lower, flexible supports.
Those favoring the flexible sup-
ports then included 39 Republicans
and 10 Democrats.

Circuit Judge Julius H. Miner

pay comes from state funds.
Other state employes have not
contested the oaths. Judge Miner
dismissed suits of three Chicago
schoolteachers who asked that the
law be ruled invalid.

Get $300
Pay Boost
The Ann Arbor Board of Edu-
cation has announced a $300 an-
nual salary increase for the city's
360 teachers.
This action will bring teacher's
base pay to $3,500 to $6,000 per
annum for those holding A.B. de-
grees while those with M.A.'s will
receive $3,700 to $6,400 yearly.
Also included in the new pay
scale are annual in-grade pay
raises of $200 after the first and
second years of teaching. Male
teachers will get $300 in addition
as pay differential.
Motive for establishing the pay
raises in this manner is to allow
teachers who are beginning fam-
ilies to buy homes and to provide
them with income when it is
most needed for their welfare and

Glubb Defied
King Says
Hussein Hailed
As Arab Hero
BEIRUT, Lebanon (P)-Jordan's
King Hussein fired Lt. Gen. John
Bagot Glubb for refusing to re-
organize his Arab Legion to meet
a possible Israeli attack, his gov-
ernment's radio said yesterday.
The King-hailed as a new hero
of the Arab world-immediately
drew a pledge of all-out aid from
Syria, Egypt and Saudi Arabia "in
event of aggression," a dispatch
from Damascus reported.
The 20-year-old monarch's sun
was rising in the tense Middle East
as that of Britain-and the United
States-sank lower.
Defied King's Demand
The radio in Jordan's capital of
Amman said Glubb was dismissed
because he defied the King's de-
mand that the legion be reorgan-
ized to meet any aggression from
Israel on Jordan's Western fron-
"The King demanded that mili-
tary plans be made for an attack
if the Israelis attacked Jordan,"
the radio said in the first public
explanation of the action.
King Hussein himself seemed to
tike on a more belligerent man.-
ner. He appeared yesterday morn-
ing before a cheering crowd out-
side the royal palace in Amman
and said he thanked God the
country was working united in face
of what he called the dangerous
Israel enemy.
Press Lavishes Praise
The Egyptian press lavished
praise on King Hussein. This is
the same press which only recently
pounded at him for his reported
support of the Baghdad Pact,
which is sponsored by Britain
with U.S. approval.
In Damascus, Syrian Premier
Said el Ghazzi told Parliameit
Syria, Egypt and Saudi Arabia
"have agreed to regard any ag-
gression on Jordan as directed
against each of them, and to rush
to Jordan's aid in all fields in
event of aggression."

Status Quo
LONDON (A) - Lt. Gen. Johln
Bagot Glubb came home yesterday
urging that nothing be done to
disturb friendly relations between
Britain and Jordan, which fired
his as its Arab legion commbander.
The fabulous desert soldier was
sad-faced and tired as he stepped
from his plane into a rainstorm.
He told reporters he had no com-
plaint about his treatment. Less
than 53 hours earlier, King Hus-
sein had summarily dismissed him.
But Britain was shocked by his
dismissal. For years Glubb had
personally symbolized British in-
fluence in the Middle East-an
influence that now appears to be
crumbling in a floodtide of ,Arab
United States Ambassador Win-
throp E. Aldrich had lunch with
Eden yesterday. Presumably Ald-
rich and Eden talked over the Mid-
dle East problems and the un-
doubted loss of Western initiative
in that oil-rich region.
The Soviet Union got a foothold
there recently with the sale of
Communist arms to Egypt. British'
newspapers charged that Egypt,
backed by Saudi Arabian money,
is now trying to oust Britain com-
pletely from the Middle East.
Overhanging the whole problem is
the danger of a new Arab-Israeli

States, Britain and France yes-
terday postponed a showdown
meeting on the proposed sale of
French jet fighters to Israel, while
evidence grew that the Western
powers face a dangerous crisis in
the Middle East.
From President Dwight D. Eis-
enhower down, officials were re-
ported to be deeply disturbed over
the ejection of British Lt. Gen.
John Bagot Glubb from Jordan.
This may lead to an opening into
which the Soviet Union will try
to move.

The Jordanian action also is re-
garded here as evidence that the
hard core of the Arab bloc, never
a very effective force in the past,

United States officials said the
surge of Arab nationalism from
Morocco to Iraq is sweeping away
the old, stabilizing anchors and
symbols of Western power.
One thing seems certain, State
Department experts said, and that
is that the United States and
France are tarred, so far as the
Arabs are concerned, with the
same brush as Britain,
Jordanians Take Control

military adviser in Jordan. His

For most of these people rush-
ing was a painful experience, but
one from which recovery has al-
ready largely taken place.
Ego Deflated
As one freshman explained it,
"Of course I was disappointed. It
certainly deflates your ego, but,
heck, the world hasn't stopped or
anything like that."
A sophomore who was rushing
for the first time had a different
point of view. "I didn't expect to
get a bid because I make a lousy
first impression. It takes me a little
time to warm up to people. For
that reason, I don't think my ego
was hurt any."
However, he pointed up a weak-
ness in the rushing system that
several 'others echoed. One fresh-
man was bothered by a friend,

as an escape from dorm life. The
