Six of the seven airlines pre-

men work as long as it remains at
Willow Run.
Improve Facilities
This first part of the program,
according to ANTSCO president
Robert E. Miller, is to make pre-
sent facilities more comfortable
and attractive. Early plans in-
clude new seats, a new floor, and
# a false ceiling, and improvement
and renovation of the baggage
area and rest rooms.
A permanent canopy will be
built above the entire terminal en-

is expected to be adequate for an-
ticipated air travel needs for the
next ten years, and "at least until
the Northeast airport is in opera-
tion," Miller concluded.

primary fights.
Vice-president Richard M. Nix-
on, frequently complimented by
Ike, got 13% of the GOP votes.
Almost 8% of the Republican
votes went to Chief Justice Earl
Warren, former California gover-
nor. Experts say that he may be
reluctant to leave the Supreme
Court and probably will not run
unless drafted.
Kefauver Polls 12%
Sen. Estes Kefauver (D-Tenn.),
runner-up for the 1952 nomina-
tion, polled 12% of the Democratic
votes. Long-time Ohio governor
Frank Lausche, who received 4%
of the Democratic votes, is con-
sidered conservative and a possible
bet for Southern support.
Possible dark-horse candidate
Gov. Christian Herter of Massa-
chusetts, considered a strong
Eisenhower suporter, polled a little
more than 3%2%, while Gov. Good-
win Knight of California, a culti-
vator of labor, polled almost 3%.
Neither minority leader Sen.
William Knowland (R-Calif.) nor
Sen. Stuart Symington (D-Mo.)
received any campus votes.
Ike Taking Chance
Most of the students polled felt
that President Eisenhower, whose
decision is expected some time this
month, would get the GOP nomi-
nation if he decided to run. How-
ever, some of them qualified this
statement by saying that he would
be taking a chance with the na-
tion's security if he did decide to
One Junior coed claimed, "Ike
couldn't win, not with everybody
worried about his health." And a
senior man growled, "He's a damn
fool if he runs."
On the other hand, most stu-
dents felt that,; although Steven-
son will get the Democratic nomi-
nation, he can't win. In the words
of a sophomore man, "He's not the
best man, but he's practically the
only one they've got."
Stevenson Win
However, many students express-
ed the feeling that if Vice-presi-
dent Nixogi ran, Stevenson would
beat him.
The complicated California situ-
ation is expected to liven up GOP
nomination proceedings. Four of
the possible Republican candidates,'
Vice-president Nixon Chief Justice
Warren, Gov. Knight and Sen.

On 5-3 Win
Special to The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS-Michigan kept
the pressure on in the torrid WIHL
race last night by steamrolling to
an impressive 5-3 clutch win over
Minnesota's dangerous Gophers
here before a sell-out Williams
Arena mob.
The Wolverine triumph threw
the sensational league race into
a three-way tie for first place, as
Michigan Tech's rampant Huskies
kept pace by blitzing North Dakota
6-2, at Houghton.
Tommy Rendall banged home
two goals, while Don McIntosh,
Ed Switzer, and Jerry Karpinka
each caged one. Lorne Howes
played one of the greatest games
of his college career, stopping some
36 shots.
Key Marker
McIntosh's goal was the key
marker of the contest -- as he
punched a neat shot by Gopher
Jack McCartan at 13:03 of the
final period to put the game virtu-
ally out of Minnesota's reach.
With the Wolverines leading by
only one slim goal, the lean Mc-
Intosh took a pass from Ed Switz-
er, who had taken a cross ice pass
from Tommy Rendall. Roaring in
as a trailer on the play, McIntosh
pounded it home easily, and the
Gophers were beaten.
It was a wild,' penalty marked
game, with both teams totaling 17
trips to the sin-bin. Michigan was
called on 11 of them. The Wolver-
ines appeared ragged throughout
the game until coming to life in
the final period. However, from
the scoring, one would never have
realized it.
Tallied Twice
The Heyliger men tallied twice
in the first, once in the second,
and twice in the third period to
notch the triumph. Minnesota
garnered one in the first and two
in the final stanza.
Michigan opened the scoring at
9:48 of the first period, when little
Eddie Switzer took a pass from
Dick Dunnigan aided by Bill Mac-
Farland from behind the Gopher
net, and slapped it by McCartan's
outstretched glove.
But much to the delight of the
crowd the Gophers tied it up about
six minutes later, when 'at 16:24,
Captain Kenny Yackel took a pass
from veteran George Jetty and
banged it by Howes.
Michigan however, would not

New. Weapon
LONDON (A')-Britain announc-
ed yesterday a defense program
accenting output of a variety of
nuclear weapons.
These include an inter-contin-
ental-type missile.
Prime Minister Anthony Eden's
government said the program was
essential to defeat what the Brit-
ish termed Russia's fundamental
aim of world domination.
Work Expanding
A government White Paper out-
lining 1956-1957 defense plans re-
ported, without elaborating, that
work is-expanding on the develop-
strengthened the power of the de-
weapons." It added:
"Particular emphasis is being
placed on the development of the
ballistic rocket as a deterrent to
aggression." ,
Defense Minister Sir Walter
Monckton later told reporters the
rocket is an intercontinental type
of missile. Its development has
been discussed by British spokes-
men previously.
Russia Blamed
The White Paper blamed Russia
for Chattering world hopes last
year of a live-and-let-live agree-
ment between East and West. Such
an accord could have had the ef-
fect of easing the defense burden
which is weighing heavily on many
countries, the document said.
It went on: "The advent of the
hydrogen bomb has enormously

rent is maintained, the likelihood
of global war has decreased.

Senators Ask'
Of Shiplent
WASHINGTON (P) - Senators
yesterday planned an investiga-
tion of the Eisenhower administra-
tion's abortive shipment of tanks
to Saudi Arabia--an episode which
angered both sides in the Middle
East tinderbox.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
early yesterday called off the ship-
ment of 18 Walker Bulldog tanks
after Israel called it "beyond com-
prehension" and Democratic sen-
ators denounced it is upsetting the
Middle East military balance.
The call-off order upset the
Arabs. The Saudi Arabian Embas-
sy said it was "very surprised"
and Ambassador Sheik Abdullah
Al-Khayyal arranged a State De-
partment conference to seek an
Shipment 'Unwise'
Sen. Walter George (D-Ga),
chairman of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, called the
proposed shipment "unwise." He
demanded an explanation from
Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles as soon as Dulles returns
from a Bahamas vacation.
Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-
Minn) said colleagues should study
the advisability of a "full-scale in-
vestigation" of American policies
in the Middle East.
In addition to halting the tanks
at a Brooklyn dock, the Eisenhow-
er administration suspended all
export shipments to the Middle
East, and started a review of all
such sales.
Suspends Shipment
Meanwhile France announced
suspension of all light arms ship-
ments to foreign buyers in view of
the tense Middle East and North
African situations. But Britain
said it will continue selling arms
to the Middle East, although it
was indicated this policy might
have to be reconsidered in view of
the U.S. and French embargoes
which apparently caught the Brit-
ish by surprise.

American Ideals
WASHINGTON (P-The natur-
al gas bill died suddenly yester-
day-killed by a wad of $100 bills
and a presidential veto.
With a slap at the "arrogance"
and "highly questionable activi-
ties" of some supporters of the
legislation, President Dwight D.
Eisenhower refused to sign it into
He said he agreed with the basie
objectives of the bill, which would
exempt natural gas producers
from direct federal regulation.
But he said that to put his signa-
ture on it now would "risk creat-
ing doubt among the American
people concerning the integrity of
governmental processes."
Referring to $2500
The President left no doubt that
he was referring to the $2,500
campaign contribution-25 $100
bills in an envelope-offered to
Sen. Francis Case (R-S.D.) a few
weeks before the Senate voted on
the controversial legislation.
Sen. Case refused the 'donation,
and in a subsequent investigation
a special Senate committee traced
the money to oil and gas inter-
ests favoring passage of the bill.
The committee is now trying to
decide whether or not the contri-
bution was offered in an attempt
to influence Sen. Case's vote.
But at any rate it was clear that
the $2,500 proferred by ardent
supporters of the bill had boom-
eranged and dealt a death blow
to the measure, in its present form
at least. Nobody had any belief
that Congress would override the

the bill had split party lines

tally 31 Republicans and 22 Demo-

That made the vote 53-38, well
short of the two-thirds majority
needed to override a veto. The
House vote was closer, 209-203.
President Eisenhower's veto mes-
sage was drafted at his vacation
headquarters near Thomasville,
Ga., and delivered to the House,
where the legislation originated
last year. It hit Congress with a

side, which had argued the bill

Chamber music dates back to the time of Haydn when Prince
Esterhazy of Hungary commissioned the composer to write and play
quartets for him. Since then string quartet playing has been the
private enjoyment of every accomplished professional string player.

have subsidized foursomes in order to have the privilege of playing

Fraternity intitation stunts are "uncalled for," William S. Zer-
man, Assistant Dean of Men said early this morning.

had been searching for the body all week.'
Clark, a pledge of Delta Kappa Epsilon, was being initiated into
the fraternity at the time and had been left in a lonely wooded area.
His father, Alfred R. Clark, branded fraternity initiation stunts.
as "criminal."

"any kind of hazing or initiation done outside of the fraternity house."
