Ask Egypt, Israel
To Halt Attacks
UN Warns of 'Grave Consequences'
In. Offensive Action in Middle East
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (A- The United Nations called on
Egypt and Israel yesterday to halt reprisal raids and warned that
grave moral responsibility would rest on the country that takes of-
fensive action in the frontier hostilities.
UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold joined Maj. Gen. L. M.
Burns, Canadian supervisor of the UN truce setup in Palestine, in a
strong appeal to both countries to avoid - action "which may result
in the gravest consequences."
The action came after new flareups in the El Auja-area and at
the end of a series of urgent diplomatic conferences here. They were
climaxed by a meeting here yesterday that included British and
United States representatives.
In a statement Hammarskjold said' he and Burns had consultedj
with the "interested governments" on measures that would prevent

Unleashing one of the greatest rallies in Big Ten history, mighty
Michigan yesterday smashed Iowa, 33-21, and established itself
beyond a doubt as the finest football team in the nation.
Striking through the air with the most devastating pass barrage
seen in recent years, the fired-up Wolverines churned a homecoming
crowd of over 72,000 into frenzy and chalked up their sixth straight
victory of the season to remain unbeaten and still on top of the
Big Ten conference.
Tops in Thrills
It was perhaps the most thrilling game eyer to be played in the
Michigan Stadium. The Wolverines opened up for 33 points in the
second half to catch and pass an Iowa team that had at one time

It was certainly cold and damp,
and dreary in that first half, but
the Wolverines warmed things up
with fireworks in the second.
Michigan's second-half display
of gridiron aerial artistry that
overcame a two-touchdown deficit
electrified not only the 72,096fans
in the rain-soaked stadium but
also more than 60,000,000 television

FESTIVITIES NOT DAMPENED BY RAIN:
Ci1i Phi, Sigma Kappa Take Home coming Display Honors
By VERNON NAHRGANG!
Hawks, whales, an octopus, and other animals seemed to dominate
yesterday's homecoming displays.
Winning display in the men's all-campus division was Chi Phi's
octopus. Captioned "20,000 Leagues to the Rose Bowl," it had Army
and MSU well within its grasp, and was reaching for Iowa.
Beta Theta Pi's bird that "Got it in the End Zone" and Tau
Delta Phi's "Anyone for a Fourth?" tied for second place. A pinball
machine, complete with sound effects and blinking lights, won third
place for the men of Scott House.
Rains Didn't Spoil Fun
Although the rains came during the night and morning, the
displays seemed to hold up well, at least until the judges went by.
"Confucius says, 'Great is Man Who Reaps Roses by Plowing
Corn'" was the title of Sigma Kappa's winning display in the
Second place went to Kappa Delta's "Scare Those Hawks Out of
Our Victory Field." Mosher Hall's twin-carrying stork won third place
for the women.
