Police Close
Saar Basin;
Fear Riots
People To Decide
'European' Issue
Police shut the frontiers of this
rich industrial basin yesterday be-
cause officials said they feared
gangs of rowdies might come in
and try to intimidate voters and
vote counters in today's historic
Promptly at noon, red-and white
poles were lowered across all roads
leading into the Saar, effectively
sealing off the 991-square-mile
area. Urtil midnight today after
the votes on the statute proposing
to "Europeanize" the territory
have been counted, all incoming
traffic from West Germany,
France and Luxembourg will be
stoped, with certain exceptions,
to insure that 664,000 Saarlanderh
can vote freely.
Mark An "X"
The voters, steamed up by three
months of hot campaigning, will
simply mark an X beside yes or
no. If the majority vote yes, the
Saar will become a supranational
state, smaller than Rhode Island
and with a population of between
90,000 and a million, in the indus-
trial heart of Europe.
The coal-rich steel-producing
valley would continue its close
economic ties, including a customs
union, with France; and control
its own internal government. For-
eign relations and defense would
pass from France to a neutral
high commissioner appointed by
the seven-nation Western Euro-
pean Union.
If the voters say no, the status
quo will continue. That means
political autonomy, but still a close
economic tieup, with France. It
also would mean a customs and
currency barrier between the Ger-
man-speaking Saarlanders and
other Germans living just across
the eastern frontier.
Crucial Vote
On the eve of the crucial vote
that may give a new boost to
European unity-or perhaps bury
it-pro-Europeanization and pro-
German forces fired off final
charges and countercharges. Each
'side called the other "traitors."
Premier Johannes Hoffmann's
pro-Europeanization forces assert-
ed the German Homeland League,
grouping the three parties seeking
the Saar's return to Germany, is
betraying both the European idea
and West German Chancellor
Xonrad Adenauer.
Red China
Accuses .S.
of Espionage
TOKYO (P)-Red China yester-
day accused the United States of
"repeated espionage" since 1950
and declared that two of 19 Ameri-
cans under arrest are "outstand-
ing examples."
The two, among the 19 Red
China agreed at recent ambassa-
dorial talks in Geneva to release
as "expeditiously" as possible,
John Thomas Downey, New
Britain, Conn., given a life sen-
tence for "espionage," and Rich-
ard George Fecteau, Lynn, Mass.,
given 20 years.

The Red broadcast did not im-
ply that the Communists would
refuse to free them, but it used;
them to bolster the espionage
Downey and Fecteau, both civi-;
lian Army employes, were on a
plane which vanished on a flight
from Korea to Japan in November
1952. The plane was not on any
Air Force mission, the Army said.
But Peiping charged they were
on a bomber which Peiping insist-
ed was shot down over Manchuria.
The Reds said the bomber wasa
dropping supnlies to "American.

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN.-Mighty Michigan used its aerial attack
to conquer a fired-up Minnesota squfd, 14-13, before a sellout crowd
here at Memorial Stadium yesterday.
The victory, coupled with Ohio State's 26-16 win over Wisconsin,
left Michigan in the top spot in the Western Conference. It also gave
them possession of the coveted Little Brown Jug for another year.

Little Exuberance
There wasn't much exuberance
in the first quarter. One student
watching the game muttered,
"Maybe I'll have to go home for
Christmas after all."
The' announcer, who didn't
bother to conceal his liking for
the "home" team, was soundly
booed throughout in one frater-
nity. "Why does Michigan get
'lucky breaks' while Minnesota
'capitalizes on opponents' errors'?"
someone asked angrily.
"Rose Bowl, Rose Bowl .,.."
Smell of roses was in the air
and the usual Saturday chant,
"Rose Bowl, Rose Bowl, here we
come . . . " was heard often.

Munch To
Lead Boston
Charles Munch, distinguished
conductor of the Boston Symphony
Orchestra, is the personification
of the double culture of Alsace. j
Born in Strasbourg of an Alsa-
tian father andsa Parisian mother,
Munch, who will appear with the
Orchestra at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow
in Hill Auditorium, is Gallic to
his fingertips.
His devotion to the music of
Berlioz, Debussy, Roussel and Hon-
egger is well known. On the other
hand, the music of Bach is his
Bible, a natural result of a boy-
hood closely surrounded by the
works of this master.
Classical Tradition
His musical training benefited
by the classical tradition at Stras-
bourg, and at Leipzig, where he
had valuable experience in the
Gewandhaus Orchestra. Yet he
studied violin in Paris and was
first a conductor there.
France claims him as its f ore-
most spokesman among conduc-
tors, and while giving his loyalty
to her, he remains an artist of
international affiliations and
If a conductor's qualities can be
summed up from observation of
his approach to his art, then the
qualities of Munch are absorption,
devotion, directness, and the kinds

Molotov Will
Reveal Plans
As Minister
MOSCOW (A') - V. M. Molotov
said yesterday he will announce
"in Geneva and from Geneva"
whether he plans to quit his job
as Soviet Foreign minister.
Molotov leaves Tuesday for the
four-power foreign ministers' con-
ference which opens in Geneva
Thursday. Western diplomats here
have speculated about his future
as foreign minister ever since he
confessed an "ideological error" in
the magazine Communist Oct. 8.

He was reluctant to discuss his
plans in further details.
Erred "Dangerouly"
In his confession in the maga-
zine Communist, Molotov said he
had erred "dangerously" in a ma-
jor speech last Feb. 8 when he
suggested the Soviet Union was
not yet a full-scale Socialist na-
tion. The speech was made at the
same Supreme Soviet session at
which Georgi M. Malenkov con-
fessed errors and resigned as
Ike Praised*
By Bulganin
In Letter
MOSCOW (P)- Soviet Premier
Nikolai Bulganin published yes-
terday a letter to President
Dwight D. Eisenhower hailing him
for his position on the disarma-
ment problem.
Bulganin, however, pushed the
Soviet plan for control post guar-
antees against attack as a step
toward settling the problem.
The Premier's letter was made
public as the Big Four foreign
ministers prepared to convene for
their "acid test" conference at
Geneva Thursday.
"Great Significance"
It is said that agreement on the
Soviet control post proposal would
have "a great significance for fur-
thering the settling of the problem
of disarmament." Bulganin made
no mention in the letter of Presi-
dent Eisenhower's "open sky" pro-
posal for reciprocal aerial inspec-
Bulganin said he was awaiting
President Eisenhower's recovery
so disarmament proposals could be
discussed. This made disarmament
loom large as the principal topic
for discussion at Geneva.
Awaits Clearance Reply
The United States agrees it Is
important to avoid the possibility
of surprise attack by either side
in this atomic age, but still awaits
a clearcut reply to the President's
"open sky" proposal. Bulganin's

fing a 10-play series from the Go-
pher 48-yd. line. VanPelt con-
verted for the winning point to
keep the Wolverines unbeaten in
five successive games this season.
Day of Awakening
The game proved to be the day
of awakening for a new star on
the Michigan gridiron scene. Van-
Pelt started at the quarterback
spot for the injured Jim Maddock
and led the team through a dreary
first half.
He then took charge of th
Maize and Blue attack as if it
awoke and completely outplayed
the Gophers for the final 30 min-
Michigan hardly looked the No.
1 rated team in the Nation as they
bogged down in the opening min-
utes in which Minnesota took a
quick 13-0 lead.
Working alternately from the
wing and split "T", the Gophers
scored their first touchdown after
8:10 had elapsed in the quarter.
Halfback Dick McNamara took
a Wolverine punt on the Michigan
47 and ran it back to the 27. Full-
back Ken Yackel took the pigs .;
in to the eight on two runs through
right guard.
From there, Halfback Bob Sch-
ultz skirted right end for the score.
Mike Falls converted for a 7-0
The Gophers again took a Mich-
igan punt in Wolverine territory
and marched 46 yards for the sec-
ond tally. Yackel took the ball
over on a 16-yard run through
center. Michigan Halfback Terry
Barr blocked Fall's conversion at-
tempt. The first touchdown mark-
ed the first time in over 150 min-
utes that Michigan's goal had been
crossed for a touchdown.
Barr Scores
Michigan's first score came in
the closing minutes of the first
half when Barr went over from
the five. The touchdown climaxed
a six-play series after Tackle Dick
Heynen recovered a Minnesota
fumble on his own 40.
Hardly looking like the top team
in the Conference, Michigan Was
completely outplayed in the early
portion of the game. Its defense
couldn't seem to hold the Gopher
backs as they broke through the
tackles and guards at will.
The offense wouldn't move for
the Wolverines either. VanPelt
and Maddock threw 12 passes with
only four of them completed. The
Gophers took a commanding lead
in rushing, gaining 140 yards to
41 for Michigan in the first half.
After trailing at halftime, the
Maize and Blue came charging on-
to the field to open the third
quarter. They looked like an en-
tirely new squad. They dominated
the play with a sparkling mixture
of running through the -line and
around the ends, until they had
driven over the winning tally.
They continued to dominate
play with some deceiving running
plays by Tony Branoff, the right
half, who turned out to be the
workhorse of the backfield. Time
and time again, Branoff, along
with Barr and Fullback Lou Bal-
dacci, hit the line for five to ten
yard gains.
