For UN Security Council Seat
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (M)-The Soviet bloc switched its sdip-
port yesterday to Yugoslavia for a seat on the UN Security Council,
thus hoping to defeat the Philippines and deal the United States a
damaging prestige blow.
Faced with an East-West deadlock between Poland and the Phil-
ippines after four ballots in the 60-nation UN General Assembly, the
Soviet bloc dropped Poland for Yugoslavia. After two more ballots
neither Yugoslavia nor the Philippines could garner the necessary two-
thirds majority, and the Assembly voiced no objection to proposals by
Britain and the Soviet Union to postpone additional voting until
Brig. Gen. Carlos P. Romulo, who would occupy the Philippines'
seat on the Council in event of victory, did not appear downcast.

75,000 to See Top Team in Nation
Bid for Second Conference Triumph
Daily Sports Editor
A wounded animal is always the most dangerous.
Northwestern's winless Wildcats find themselves backed into the
proverbial corner this afternoon, as they stagger into the Michigan
Stadium to take on the top-ranked team in the land.
Lou Saban, making his coaching debut in Ann Arbor, leads his
thrice beaten team into this football-mad town in an ugly mood.
Cats at Fever-Pitch
He has fired them to a fever pitch. Already beaten by Miami of
Ohio, Tulane, and Minnesota, the Cats have nothing to lose and
everything to gain. Contrary to popular belief this team does have
potential. That's why they are so dangerous.
Some 12,000 high school bandsman will provide a backdrop of
pageantry for the crowd which their presence has swelled to 75,000-
the largest to see Northwestern -

While not yet fully recovered

On the fifth ballot the vote was
30 for the Philippines and 25 for
Yugoslavia and on the final tally
of the day the Philippines 29 and
Yugoslavia 28.
Switch to Yugoslavia
The Soviet bloc switch to Yugo-
slavia represented a complete
about face from the situation in
the Security Council race in 1949.
At that time the Western Pow-

supported Yugoslavia and the So-
viet bloc was bitterly opposed. The
West won.
Since then the Soviet Union
and Yugoslavia have patched up
differences stemming from Yugo-
slavia's break with the Commun-
ist bloc in 1948.
The balloting is for two-year
non-permanent seats on the 11-
member Security Council. The five
permanent members are the Unit-
ed States, the Soviet Union, Brit-
ain, France and Nationalist Chi-
na. The Yugoslav-Philippines con-
test is for the seat being vacated
by Turkey.

lNegyro Priest
Not Allowed
Mass Rights
NEW ORLEANS UP)-Archbishop
Joseph Francis Rummell says pa-
rishioners of the St. Cecilia Catho-
lic Mission at Jesuit Bend have
informed a Negro priest "in un-
mistakable language" that he is
not to celebrate holy mass in that
mission chapel.
As a result, the archbishop said,
he has suspended services at the
St. Cecilia Mission and reduced
services at Our Lady of Perpetual
Help Church at Belle Chasse and
at St. Joseph Mission at Myrtle
Grove. All three churches are
across the Mississippi River near
New Orleans.
In a letter to members of the
church and missions, Archbish-
op Rummell called the incident
"clearly a violation of the obliga-
tion of reverence and devotion
which Catholics owe to every
priest of God, regardless of race,
color or nationality."
Arrived Oct. 2
The letter said the Negro priest
arrived at Jesuit Bend Oct. 2.
"He was approached by several
members of the congregation and
informed politely but in unmis-
takable language that he was not
to celebrate holy mass in that mis-
sion chapel.
"The only reason alleged for
the unwarranted interference with
the discharge of his duty was the
fact that he is a memler of the
Negro race," the letter said.

Gale Strikes At Eastern Seaboard


NEW YORK (P)-A wild sneak
gale brutally pounded the Eastern
seaboard yesterday, posing a flood
threat along the hurricane lane
from the Carolinas to Canada.
At least three persons were dead
or missing in the storm.
Flood damage mounted as hea-
vy rains deluged a dozen states.
Flood Damage Mounts
With three to five inches of rain
forecast in the Berkshires and the
mountains of Vermont and New
Hampshire, the danger of flash
floods mounted.
Rainfall already topped the
five-inch mark in some areas.
A driving downpour dumped
rain on New York City at a rate
of 2inch an hour. Harbor craft
listed before the blow.
Tides Menace Coast
High tides menaced coastal ar-
eas. Waves up to 14 feet high
lashed the shoreline as the sea
stirred angrily under winds that
hit 69 miles per hour in gusts -
just six miles per hour short of
hurricane force.
The storm forced cancellation
of an air search" for a U.S. Air
Force jet fighter missing in the
Atlantic Ocean off Long Island.
Many planes were grounded and
some airports closed.

Wind-whipped flames destroyed
a big resort hotel in the heart of
Lakewood, N.J. It had not yet
opened for the winter.
Bridges were swept away by the
surly force of usually placid

A Pennsylvania motorist was
killed on the Merritt Parkway
when his car skidded on the slick
pavement and hit a tree near
Greenwich, Conn.
In Upstate New York, one man
died in a highway accident in the
rain. A second was feared drown-
ed when a boat capsized in a swol-
len creek.
Highways were awash in many
parts of the East and some were
closed to traffic.
A flash flood hit Danville, Pa.,
covered its main street, and forced
the evacuation of some of its resi-
dents by boat.
In the path of the menacing
storm lay New England and Penn-
sylvania, where some communities
still were rebuilding after last

August's death-dealing hurricane
The flood potential of the new
storm was emphasized by inun-
dated homes in New York, Con-
necticut and the District of Co-
lumbia. Residents were evacuat-
ed in some sectors by boats.
The storm was born suddenly
in the southeast Thursday after-
noon in a collision of cold western
air and warm southern moisture.
There was little advance warning
as it shrieked north at about 20
miles per hour.
It was described by the Weath-
er Bureau as an "extra tropical
cyclone"-that is a nontropical.
gale spawned differently than a
hurricane but with some of its less
severe characteristics.

French Deputies Return
Home to Talk to Voters
PARIS (MP)-With three days for reflection on whether to fire
Premier Edgar Faure or continue him in office a little longer, most
deputies of the French National Assembly returned to their homes
yesterday to talk things over with the voters.
To stave off certain defeat in a confused all-night Assembly
session, Faure asked early yesterday for the vote of confidence
in his ability to carry out Algerian reforms. The request immediately
suspended the debate. The Assembly then decided to vote Tuesday.
This was the first time in his term in office -- no a little less
than eight months - that Paure had resorted to the confidence

play in Ann Arbor since 1948.
Saban, who worked his white-
clad Wildcats through a brief drill
in the Stadium yesterday after-
noon, actually is looking for an
upset win. He is confident his
charges can push across at least
one or two tallies-and from there
on is relying on his defense to
take over.

man of the Big Ten," and at pres-
ent the boss of the conference
title favorites, has also primed his
The Wolverines staged final

and on the field of play are two
different things. The 75,000 who
will sit in on the game will see
soon enough for themselves, be-
ginning at 1:30 this afternoon.
Michigan Solid Favorite
Michigan is a solid pre-game
favorite-some estimates going up
to three touchdowns. This is far
from an accurate prediction-for
the slick running Michigan mach-
ine has quite a few cogs missing
this week.
It is a well-kno'wn fact here-
abouts that Ron Kramer, the man
who does everything but sell pro-
grams, is out of the contest with
a severely injured chest. The ex-

in confusion, but it is definite
that he will be watching today's

'Band Day'
To Feature
180 Groups
The biggest mass band demon-
stration ever held will take place
in the Michigan Stadium at half
time today.
The high point of Michigan's
annual "Band Day" will feature
11,500 members of more than 180
state high school bands, conducted
by Prof. William D. Revelli, direc-
tor of the Michigan Marching
The bands are expected to take
the field within three minutes and
play for 16. Their selection will
include "Youth of America,"
"Mister Touchdown USA," "Loco-
motive," "You're a Grand Old
Flag." "Melody of Love," "The
Baton Twirler" and "The Stars and
Stripes Forever."
Band in Pre-Game Show
The Michigan Marching Band
will take over the pre-game show,
featuring, besides "The Victors,"
"The Star Spangled Banner" and
"The Yellow and Blue," a salute
to President Dwight D. Esen.
With the playing of "My Hero,"
the band will march into a large
heart with a Block I superimposed
upon it, symbolizing the place
the President has won in the
hearts of the American people.
Next, playing "This is the Army,
Mr. Jones" and "There's Some-
thing About a Soldier," the band
will form a marching soldier.
Ike's Hobbies Portrayed
To the strains of "Three Little
Fishes," the band will portray one
of the President's hobbies, com-
plete with fishpole and leaping
The band will then do a drill
routine to "U.S. Field Artillery"
and "The Yellow Rose of 'T'exas."
The last formation will be an
airplane dropping a bomb on a
house, which will explode into the
capitol with a 40 by 80 feet Amer-
ican Flag.
1200 Mile Trip
For some of the high school
bands, Band Day involves a three
day trip covering 1200 miles. Each.
band must finance its own ap-
pearance through projects like tag
days, variety shows and sales of
homemade jams and jellies.
The first Michigan Ban Day
was held in 1929 when 1,850 mem-
bers of 29 bands participated. Last
year's spectacle included 7,250
members of 110 bands.
All the bands have been pro-
vided with detailed information
sheets, seating charts and maps
of Ann Arbor. Massed, they are
expected to cover the playing field
and extend well into the end zones.

Russians Don't Desire War in Israel

Communist offers of arms to
Egypt are "hell raising more than
anything else," Russell Barnes,
foreign affairs analyst of the De-
troit News said last night.
Interviewed at the Hillel Foun-
dation,. where he spoke, Barnes
guessed that the Russians "don't
intend to make war. They just
want to make trouble.
"It's part of a general program
of destroying Western control in
the Middle East," which he de-
scribed as "the most strategic
theater in the world today."
Will Deliver Arms
Barnes said the Communists
"will probably go through with
the arms deliveries. They're un-
loading a large stock of surplus
and obsolete arms stocks that are
of no military value to them but
I cn be of consiernaepoiticali

start anything. If Russia now in-
tervenes by delivering jet aircraft,
tanks, and artillery to Egypt, the
Western balance is upset."
Israel has indicated it will re-
quest arms from the West, he Laid,
and "the practical effect of it all
is to boost the arms race in the
Middle East."
May Attack Egypt
"The great risk of war now,"
the news analyst added, "is if Is-
rael figures that Russian arms
will too greatly beef up the Egypt-
ian army. They may attack Egypt
to prevent the buildup.
"Personally, I don't think Is-
rael will."
Barnes said that "activitists" in
Israel may think "the best way
to stop infiltration is to carry the
war to the Arabs. Premier-desig-
nate David Ben Gurion is gener-
oliv eonsiderlo +r he a,n etist

into line.
Reasons Against Overthrow
Faure's supporters can cite sev-
eral reasons against overthrow of
the government now:
1. The vote is on France's policy
toward Algeria, a North African
area considered by Frenchmen an
integral part of France. When the'
United Nations Assembly decided
to debate the troubles in Algeria,
where Moslem terrorists have been
active, the French delegation walk-
ed out. A vote now against the
government for its Algerian policy
might imply repudiation of the
2. A vote will be held in the
Saar ct. 23 on proposed European
status for the rich coal and steel
area which long has been a sore
point between Germany and
France. The Saar now is tightly
bound economically and politically
to France, but sentiment has been
growing in favor of closer ties with
Germany. The spectacle of an
indecisive France might encourage
