As Favorites
Depend on Passing
Attack Against MSU
Associate Sports Editor
Mighty Michigan's aerial prow-
ess will be .thoroughly tested, this
afternoon, as the Wolverines open
their 1955 Big Ten season meeting
up-state rivals Michigan State.
And for the first time in a long
while, Michigan is favored to win.
The key to the game, to be- play-
ed before a sellout crowd expected
to reach over 97,000, will be the
ability to get the pigskin through
the Spartan pass defense into the
hands of Michigan end Ron
Kramer. And there will be several
Wolverines to try it.
Almost every one in the Michi-
gan backfield can pass, as evi-
denced by the use of eight passers
against Missouri last Saturday.
However, the quarterbacking of
Jim Maddock and Jim Van Pelt
is expected to provide the majority
of throwing to Kramer and right
ends Charlie Brooks and Mike
Rotunno. ullback Lou Baldacci
will also be heavily counted on to
bolster the passing attack.
Probably the main reason for
expecting a Michigan passing at-
tack, is the strong forward wall of
the Spartan line. In its opening
game against Indiana, Michigan
State held the Hoosiers to only
42 yards on the ground, handing
them a 20-13 defeat.
The Spartans average an even
200 pounds along the line with
such stalwarts as Norm Masters
(227 pounds) and Pat Burke (201
pounds) at the tackle positions.
Embry Robinson and Carl "Buck"
Nystrom fill the guard slots with
Joe Badaczewski at center.
Pass Defense Strengthened
MSU Coach Hugh "Duffy"
Daugherty has had his backfield
working out all week in an attempt
to strengthen pass d e f e n s e.

Nav Okays
F or Landy
WASHINGTON (RP)-The secre-
tary of the Navy yesterday over-
ruled a special review board and
ordered that a reserve commis-
sion be granted to Eugene Landy,1
21 years old, whose mother was
once a Communist.
Secretary Charles Thomas held
there was no indication that the
honor graduate of the Merchant
Marine Academy had ever been in-
fluenced by his mother in a sub-
versive way. He said the youth's
association with his mother was
the "natural relationship of moth-
er and son and not a sympathetic
association with her political be-
lief s."
Mrs. Deborah Landy of Brad-
ley Beach, N. J., the mother, had
admitted to 10 years membership
in the Communist party. She said
she left it in 1947 at the urging
of her son.
Last August, the Navy with-
held the ensign's reserve commis-
sion for which young Landy had
worked at the academy at Kings
Point, N. Y.. He stood second in
his graduating class, and among
other things won the award giv-
en by the Daughters of the Ameri-
can Refolution for attainments in
naval science.

French Walk Out on UN;
Hint Total Split Possible





Bell Workers
Plan{ To Strike
DETROIT (P) - A state-wide.
strike of 16,500 Michigan Bell
Telephone Co. workers was set
yesterday for 6 a.m. Monday by
the CIO Communications Workers
of America.
Strike notice was given as the
union advised the company it is
terminating its present contract
on the Monday deadline .
The company-union contract
has been extended on a day-to-
day basis since its expiration date.


France walked out of the U. N.
General Assembly last night and
one high ranking member of the
French delegation said his coun-
try might quit the world organi-
zation entirely.
The walkout followed the As-
sembly action in deciding by a one
vote margin to take up, over bitter
French objection, the torrid issue
of Algerian independence.
Immediately after the vote
French Foreign Minister Antoine
Pinay asked for the floor and in
grave tones told the representa-
tives of 60 nations that France
would regard as null and void any
action taken by the Assembly on
Then he added:,
"I do not know tomorrow what
will be the consequences of the
vote on the relations between
France and the United Nations."
Then the French delegation
arose from their seats toward the
front of the Assembly auditorium
and walked out.
Outside the chamber a- reporter
asked Herve Alphand, the French
ambassador to the U .N., whether
France might withdraw from the
United Nations because of the3
Algerian decision.
The assembly, by a vote of 28-'
27 with five abstentions, overrode

the recommendation of its 15-na-
tion Steering Committee that the
Algerian issue be skipped during
this session of the Assembly. Only
on rare occasions has the Assembly
ever rejected the action of its
Steering Committee.
Members of the, Asian-African
bloc, made the original request to
take up the Algerian question. In
the General Assembly they re-
ceived the support of the Soviet
Union and other communist coun-
tries, including Yugoslavia, and of
somenLatin-American nations.
Lining up with France were the
United States, Britain, the small-
er colonial powers and a scatter-
ing of nations from Latin America
and other parts of the globe.

The other type, issued free of charge, enables the holder to park
