Illinois Swamps
Michigan, 89-66
'M' Drops Fifth Straight in Big Ten;
Kramer Scores 26 in Losing Cause
Special To The Daily
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - Led by the sharpshooting of George BonSalle
and little Billy Ridley, Illinois swept to its 14th straight victory by
trouncing the Michigan cagers 89-66 last night in Huff Gymnasium.
The triumph was the eighth in a row in Conference play for the
Illini and kept them in front of challenging Iowa.
Despite Ron Kramer's 26 points the Wolverines were unable to
cope with the Illini's overall height advantage and well-balanced
attack, and suffered their fifth consecutive setback of the Big Ten

reached between Prime Minister
Anthony Eden and President

brought forth the renegade Britons
to revive American doubts about
the sharing of atomic and other
secrets with Britain.

Gift to Case
Senate Seeks
Other Attempts
WASHINGTON (-) - Two oil
company laywers who, figured in
the offer of a $2,500 contribution
to Sen. Francis Case (R-SD) dur-
ing the Senate scrap over the
natural gas bill were summoned
yesterday to testify before a fed-
eral grand jury,
The attorneys are Eliner Pat-
man and John M. Neff. They rep-
resent the Superior Oil Co. of
California. The grand jury is to
head them today.
Senator Case rejected the $2,500.
Patman has told Senate investi-
gators he turned over the money,
from personal funds of, Harold B.
Keck, Superior Oil Co. president,
to Neff to be donated to Senator
Case's re-election campaign fund.
Neff Testifies
Neff has testified he passed the,
money on to Business Managed E.
J. Kahler of the Sioux Falls, S. D.,
Daily Argus-Leader for relay to
Senator Case.
Both Patman and Neff swore no
strings were attached.
Now they and probably other
witnesses will be called on to re-
peat to the grand jury here, start-
ing at' 10 a.m. today, the story they
already have related to a special
Senate investigating committee.
Only Contribution Made
The committee wound up its
own hearings, at least for now,
with Neff testifying today that the
$2,500 Senator Case rejected was
the only contribution he made to
any senator.
Charles W. Steadman, the com-
mittee counsel, said the committee
knows of no other such contribu-
tions by Neff, or anyone else, re-
lated to the gas bill.
Maneuvers were under way, nev-
ertheless, to broaden the hunt for
any possible additional donations,
with signs of a rivalry shaping up
between two Senate committees. A
possible expanded inquiry might go
back as far as the 1952 and 1954
political campaigns in search of
any efforts to influence senators.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
was reported to have. discussed the
gas bill with his Cabinet yesterday.
However, Press Secretary James
C. Hagerty said "no" when asked
whether any decision had been
reached to sign or veto it,
The bill would exempt producers
of natural gas from direct federal
price controls.

Hospital Fees
To Increase
Beginning March 1, patients in
Michigan hospitals may be re-
quired to pay larger fees for hos-
pital care.
The increased cost is a result
of a recent decision, by the. Michi-
gan Department of Revenue which
will make hospitals responsible for
collecting sales tax on medicine
and meals.
Prior to the decision all hos-
pital services had been exempt
since the passage of the Sales Tax
Act in 1933.
More than 25 private non-profit
hospitals have been notified by
the Revenue Department to apply
for sales tax licenses before
March 1.
