Friday night's panty raid defies any new editorial
comment. There is no reason to say it was wrong be-
cause everybody knows it was wrong.
And obviously we would be stretching things with
a case in support of the riots.
Be that as it may, unfortunate damaging publicity
is again directed at the University of Michigan-public-.
ity that denies our claim as one of the most respected.
co-educational schools not only in the nation, but in
the world.
Blame can't be placed on anyone but the students.
The pep rally may have been disorganized but organized
Michigan pep rallies are a rarity. Usually not enough
spirit is generated to inspire such demonstration as hap-
pened last night.
Obviously with over 1,000 students mobbing across
campus the undermanned Ann Arbor police force could
take little action.
Last night's riot makes one think the increased en-
rollment has brought students suffering from too early
separation from their mothers. Some schools have
active campus cops because they can't trust their kids
after dark.
Michigan believes University students could take
care of themselves.
Meanwhile Michigan's football team and marching
band spent yesterday trying to restore some of the Uni-
versity's dignity and tradition of first class accomplish,
And those who hated to admit Michigan State's
equal to University status- are sporting red faces today.

radesmen's 'Sit ow
Strike Gets NO Action
No University action has been taken regarding the "sit-down1
.strike" of the tradesmen at the University Plant Department.
Friday afternoon more than 150 employes stopped work in pro-
test to new parking regulations passed by the University parking,
committee, which require the workmen to pay for space in lots they
had previously occupied free of charge.
The men intend to work tomorrow, according to Starr Lolaugh,
carpenter and one of a. committee negotiating with the University
"We'll work at least until we find out what action will be taken,"
he said.
No Decision Reached
Wilbur K. Pierpont, University vice-president, said no decision

Faure Calls
French UN
Group Back
The French government, bitter
over a United Nations vote to de-
bate the way France rules North
African Algeria, ordered a boy-
cott of the U. N. General Assembly
and its committee yesterday.
Decision on whether the French
will cut away entirely from the
U. N. was to be taken at a Cabinet
meeting in Paris.
Ordered Home
The whole delegation to the As-
sembly was ordered home in an
overseas telephone call from Pre-
mier Edgar Faure in Paris to
French Foreign Minister Antoine
Pinay, temporarily heading the
Assembly group here.
Nerve Alphand, the new French
permanent representative here,
was also. preparing to fly to Paris,,
on call for consultations.
Pinay Leads Walkout
Pinay led the delegation walk-
out from the General Assembly
hall Friday after delegates voted
28-27, with five abstentions, to re-
verse a Steering Committee de-
cision which would have barred
an Algerian debate.
France argued that Algeria is
part of France and the U. N. must
not intervene on domestic matters.
Arab-Asian countries argued that
the U. N. could properly discuss
the question of human rights in
Hurt In Crash
A University student was ser-
iously injured early Saturday
morning when his car smashed
into a steel support on the Miller
Ave. railroad viaduct.
William T. Woodell, '59, was re-
porte din "fair condition" at the
University hospital operating room
five hours after the accident.
Woodell suffered a skull frac-
ture, internal injuries, a broken
nose, and serious face lacerations,
but late last night his condition
was improving.

Doctors Report Ike
HWas Excellent Day
Ends First of Two Crucial Weeks;
Signs ' Two Government Documents
DENVER ()-President Dwight D. Eisenhower's doctors, said
yesterday the cheif executive "had an excellent day."
This was the first time a medical bulletin from the President's
physicians at Fitzsimmons Army Hospital had described his day as
excellent, although the adective had been applied to his condition Fri-
day night. Yesterday marked the beginning of the second week since
the President suffered a heart attack.
Bulletin No. 32, at 8:45 p.m. said:
"The President's condition continues to be satisfactory without
" complications.

'Comfortable, Quiet Day'
"He had an evcellent day." A
late afternoon bulletin yesterday
said the President had a "comfort-
able quiet day" with satisfactory
The White House stressed that
the President's physicians will
continue to have absolute control
over how soon he returns to active
command of the government.
After talking. with the doctors,
Press Secretary James. C. Hagerty
told a news conference it would
be "a fair assumption" the chief
executive will be allowed to put
his name to more official papers
during the next week.
Signs Two Documents
Friday night the President, still
hospitalized, signed two documents

minor, that he had transacted

the oxygen tent."
Oxygen Tent Removed
The oxygen tent, a standard
precaution in the early stages
after a heart attack, has been re-
moved from President Eisenhow-
er's room since early Thursday
At his news conference, Hagerty
was asked whether a fair summa-
tion of the President's condition
would be that, as a reporter put it,
"he is making very satisfactory
progress but is not yet out of the
"Of course," said Hagerty in
nodding agreement.
He added he wanted. to stress
that President Eisenhower's phys-
icians have said repeatedly that
the two weeks after an attack are
the period of greatest danger-
the time when complications are
most likely to occur..
New Members
Ann Arbor's short-staffed police
department was boosted Friday
by the addition of two new men,
Robert F. Oee, of Ann Arbor and
Ralph I. Hocking, of Ypsilanti.

Schools Ask
Law Exam
Site Shift
D E T RO 0I T (A)-Reports of
cheating in the State Bar Exam-
inations last month have stirred
new proposals that the examina-
tions be shifted from the Univers-
ity to a "neutral ground."
Spokesmen for three Detroit law
schools who advocated the move
contended University law gradu-
ates have a "psychological advan-
tage over other students in being,
able towrite their examinations
in familiar surroundings.
Investigate Cheating
Meanwhile, state police contin-
ued their investigation into re-
ports of cheating at the Sept. 8-10
tests in an effort to find out how
the tests were stolen and offered
or sold to some of the examinees.
Joseph F. Childs, state police
commission, has refused to com-
ment on the investigation until it
is completed. He said any evidence
of crime in connection with the
evamination would be' turned over
to the prosecutor of the county in
which the offense occurred.
Neef Would Favor Move
Arthur Neef, Dean of the
Wayne University Law School,
said he would favor a change of
location provided a substitute lo-
cation with facilities equal to
those here could be found.
"I would favor such a move, not
because of the recent reported,
cheating at Ann Arbor, which
could have happened anywhere,
but because I cannot believe De-
troit law graduates are on an equal
footing with University of Mich-
igan men, psychologically," Neef

Any final decision is up to the

Too Early
Refusing to rule out the possi-
bility that he may again seek the
governorship, Leonard remarked,
"It's too early to say anything
definite. He attributed his defeat
by Governor G. Mennen Williams
to national issues, denying that
the November result was a "per-
sonal defeat."
The young legislators, who
united last year in supporting the
Coleman highway bill, heard Re-
publican State Chairman John
Feikens say the party is "sunk"
unless it continues the Eisenhower
On the state level, Feikens as-
serted "we've made Soapy look
awfully good by our inactivity in
areas of social need."
Discussed Mental Health
The legislators discussed mental
health, highway safety and state
penal institutions, all expected to
be issues at the coming special
session called by Gov. Williams.
Charges were also voiced that
"tax money is not being spent
wisely," that there should be 850
more state policemen, and that
Gov. Williams is a 'political clown'
and "lives on crisis, putting the
Republicans over one barrel after'



Argentina s
Cuts Decree,
tina's new government yesterday
abolished the State of Internal
War Decree through which Juan
D. Peron clamped a modified form
of martial law on this nation four
years ago.
} Peron used a short-lived revolt
against his regime in Sept., 1951,
as an excuse to issue the decree.
It suspended constitutional guar-
antees, including the right of ha-
beas corpus. Prisoners could be
- and were - held indefinitely
without trial.
The president-dictator assumed
emergency powers and held them
until rebels within the armed
forces forced his ouster 12 days
ago. The state of internal war
has been one of the major tar-
gets of Peron's political foes.
Abolition of the decree was ac-
companied by an announcement
of the executive branch that it has
agreed to hand Provisional Presi-
dent Eudardo Lonardi extraordi-
nary powers. The nature of these
powers was not specified.
Most of Argentina's newspapers

Leo nard Predicts Ike
Won't Seek Re-election
Special to The Daily
DEXTER - "It would be a cruel injustice to impose the Presiden-
tial nomination on a man who isn't well," Don Leonard, defeated
Republican candidate for Michigan governor said yesterday.
Interviewed at a Republican meeting attended mostly by young
members of the state legislature, Leonard said he assumed that

has been reached by the Univer -
sity. "The situation is still under
study and discussion with the em-
ploye group."
No important work was held up
Friday. Two electricians excused
themselves from the "sit-down"
long enough to repair a danger-
ously hanging electric wire.
The tradesmen presented a
petition to Walter M. Roth, sup-
erintendent of the Plant Depart-
ment, which they also sent :to H.
G. Watkins, Regent's secretary.
Two New Lots Sought
The petition asked that the two
lots, located, near the Plant De-
partment building, be returned to
their former status of "free, open
parking lots."
According to the new regula-
tions, starting Wednesday the em-
ployes must start paying for space.
They asked, "in case these lots.
can not be re-opened by Wednes-
day, we further petition for a
temporary stay of policing the lots
until further negotiation can settle
this question to the satisfaction
of the parties concerned."

Prison Riot
Breaks Out
In Boston
BOSTON (All) - Some 250 in-
mates of Suffolk County House of
Correction, hurling stones, lumber
and furniture, staged a tumultous
riot for over two hours last night
before more than 150 police and
firemen quelled them with tear
gas and heavy stream of water.
At least, 30 guards, firemen and
policemen were struck by stones
but none was injured seriously.
The jail was in an uproar from
shortly after 6:30 p.m. EDT until
the men were driven back to their
cells at 8:50 p.m.
During the melee the inmates,
most of them serving short terms
for minor offenses, set severalfires
in the yard, broke windows- and
furniture and for a time held con-
trol of the institution.
Police and firemen gradually
herded the men from the yard into
a cellblock by using streams of
Once in the building, the in-
mates smashed nearly everything
breakable and threw the pieces at
police and firemen.
Tear gas was fired into the cell-
block and the men straggled out
one by one. As they reached the
doorway, they were grabbed by
police and hustled into a nearby
prison wing.
After the water 'and tear gas
assault, a jail official said "it
looks like we've got the thing
under control now."
U Plans No
Action Against
Panty Raiders
Dean of Men Walter B. Rea said
last night that no disciplinary ac-
tion would be taken against riot-
ers in the "panty raid" activities
Friday night.
However, Dean Rea did say that
in the future "pep rally programs
will have to be more carefully
worked out.

Blocked Punt
Help in Win,
Peaks, Morrall
Lead MSU Attack
Associate Sports Editor
Mighty Michigan didn't lookso
mighty as they eked out a 14-7
victory over a rough Michigan
State squad in the Michigan
Stadium yesterday afternoon.
The Wolverines capitalized on
breaks to gain the one-touch-
down advantage as the Spartans
held the expected Michigan aerial
attack to a virtual standstill. The
Wolverines didn't even get a
chance to pass to their highly-
toutedend, Ron Kramer, who
played the entire game.
But it was Kramer who paved
the way to the Maize and Blue
victory, catching MSU's halfback,
Clarence Peaks, behind his line-of-
scrimmage to climax a near goal-
line stand late in the first quar-
Score Early
Michigan opened the scoring
early in the first quarter when
the right halfback, Tony Branoff,
intercepted a pass from Spartan
quarterback Earl Morrall intended
for Peaks on the Michigan 42
yard line and ran it back to the
Michigan State 20. From there
fullback Lou Baldacci and Bran-
off battered the Spartan forward
wall until Iranoff went over for
the touchdown, six plays later.
Late in the first quarter, the
Michigan left half, Terry Barr,
fumbled in his own territory and
MSU's Embry Robinson recovered
on the Wolverine 22. This set up
the Spartan's first scoring oppor-
tunity which was foiled by Kramer
when he stopped the drive near
the goal-line.
Michigan State had another
scoring opportunity near the end
of the first half when halfback Ed
Shannon fumbled on the Spartan
40. MSU drove 57 yards to the
Michigan three where its drive
stalled and the Wolverines took

The Spartans came out of the
locker looking like a newly-in-
spired team for the third quarter
and immediately set to work to

gains drove over the goal. Full.
back Gerry Planutis converted to

partmient of Welfare. said yester-
day in the first official report of
such scope, that preliminary re-
ports from the nationwide Salk
polio vaccine program "are very
The announcement, for Secre-
tary Marion B. Folsom, said:
"Preliminary data, now being
compiled, show that the incidence
of polio among about seven mil-
lion vaccinated children, most of
whom have received only one in-
jection, is running roughtly 25 to

50 per cent below the rate among
non-vaccinated children in the
same age groups.
"These preliminary reports are
very encouraging," Folsom said,
"and more information is expect-
ed soon."
There have been previous indi-
cations of the effectiveness of the
vaccine, but these have been based
on studies of only segments of the
great number of children who
have received shots. Yesterday's
report was the first to embrace the
whole seven million and to give
such percentages.

Scalpers, Band Spar k Game

With over 100,000 people packed into the Michigan stadium (the
official word is 97,239 but the fans were sandwiched tight) and beauti-
ful weather, it was almost a shame the television cameras weren't
here for the spectacle.
TV comes October 29th against Iowa on a national hookup.
There'll be other games televised regionally.
As in all sellout crowds, scalping was prominent before the game.
As the crowds started pouring in, tickets were selling as high as $15,
dropping to $4 after the kickoff. It wasn't very difficult to find some-
one to sell them to you.
The halftime show, billed as a "battle of bands" provided some
interesting twists.

called "laughing at ourselves." This included some fancy ballet step-
ping and some farcical antics satirizing the modern college marching
