Mitchell Paces Illini To Upset Win;

Special to The Daily
CHAMPAIGN, ILL.-Fleet reserve sophomore halfback Bobby
Mitchell spearheaded Illinois to an astounding 25-6 upset win over
Michigan here yesterday, and thereby derailed the Wolverine's Big
Ten title hopes, at least temporarily.
Mitchell, an old time rival of Michigan's Jimmy Pace from Hot

Of Smears
WASHINGTON (M) - Republi-
cans accused Democrats in control
of Congress yesterday of using
legislative investigations to fur-
ther "a smear campaign of im-
mense proportions" against the
A Democrat replied his party
was after the facts, adding, in
effect, that the Republicans hadn't
seen anything yet.
The Republican National Com-
mittee said in its official publi-
cation "Straight from the Shoul-
der" that its political opponents
in Congress are "playing rough
and dirty in their desperate at-
tempt to find issues for 1956" in
137 separate investigations.
PlayIng With Probe Money
"They are playing with more
than six million dollars in probe
money, ranging far across the
eountry for possible targets, hit-
ting hard at what they like to
call 'big business in government,'
military programs, farming, trans-
portation - you name it," the
GOP publication said.
Specifically, it criticized the Sen-
ate Agriculture Committee's in-
quiry into farm prices, a Senate
Judiciary subcommittee's investi-
gation of business pricing methods,
another Judiciary subcommittee's
proposed look into administration
news release policies and the ac-
tivities of several Senate-House
Economic subcommittees.
The GOP publication said the
Agriculture Committee "has been
involved in a nationwide quest for
a Democratic 'farm program' cyn-
ically taking advantage of the
farmers' current cost squeeze to
sow resentment and create a fa-
vorable climate of opinion for
their discredited rigid support
Charge 'Ridiculous'
Calling this charge "completely
ridiculous," Sen. Russell B. Long
(D-La) said he thought the agri-
culture group was doing a public
service - without any "political
,varfare" in mind-of finding out
what the farmers think about
price supports.
"I hope the Republicans are not
suggesting that the farmers ought
not to be heard," Sen. Long said
in _an interview. "If they think
t they are hearing bad things from
the farmers now, wait till they
hear from them in next year's
Long Comments on Tax
Sen. Long also commented on
the GOP publication's contention
that a Tax Policy subcommittee of
the Senate-House Economic Com-
mittee "is interested in trying to
prove that the 'little fellow' is not
getting the breaks in taxes."
Sen. Long, a member of the tax-
handling Senate Finance Commit-
tee, said "I'll have to agree that
no investigation is needed to prove
that the Eisenhower administra-

Protest Filed
Israel filed a protest with the
UN Mixed Armistice Commission.
The Egyptian spokesman said
the Israel armored vehicles ap-

marcation line south of Khan Yu-
nis in the lower Gaza strip and
started firing at Egyptian posi-
tions. The Egyptians returned the
fire and the Israelis withdrew, he
The Israeli Foreign Ministry
spokesman did not pinpoint the
three Egyptian invasion attempts.
The Israelis reported two Egyptian
platoons attacked Israeli positions
two miles east of the southern
Gaza border line Friday and were
beaten back.
No Resumption of Battle
Fifty miles south, Israeli and
Egyptian guns faced each other
atop the El Sabha plateau, but
there were no reports of a resump-
tion of the fierce 17-hour battle
which ended Thursday.
The United States expressed its
concern yesterday as Britain did
earlier this week, at increasing
military action between the two
neighbors, but the UN truce super-
visor in Palestine said he did not
believe "the Israeli-Arab dispute
will grow into a full-scale war."
The supervisor, Maj. Gen. Ed-
son L. M. Burns of Canada, con-
ferred in London yesterday with
Prime Minister Eden and Foreign
Office officials.
Burns stopped over in the British
capital en route to Jerusalem after

tary Dag Hammarskjold.
UN Proposes Plan
The United Nations has proposed
to Israel and Egypt a plan which
it hopes both sides will accept and
restore peace. The plan is under-
stood to call for clear marking of
the El Auja-Nizana demilitarized
zone and troop withdrawals from
In a statement to reporters,
Burns said: "I think there is a
fair chance of getting a pause in
the fighting to enable the situa-
tion to be stabilized. I don't think
the Israeli-Arab dispute will krow
into a full-scale war. It is possible,
but my guess it that it is not
likely to happen."
The ambassadors of Israel and
Egypt were summoned to the State
Department in Washington to re-
ceive the U.S. views. They were
told the United States strongly
supports the UN proposal to end
the border fighting.

MontgomeryLauds Ike After Talks.

DENVER (P)-President Dwight
D. Eisenhower climbed his first
steps yesterday and a close com-
rade of World War II ealled him
"a very valuable man" to the
world, in the White House or any
other color house.
Two old soldiers, the President
and British Field Marshal Lord
Montgomery of Alamein, discussed
the world problems for 40 min-
utes yesterday. "And I reckon,"
the field marshal told a news con-
ference afterward, "that he looks
better today than I have ever seen
him look."
'Ike Valuable
Disclaiming any implication that
he was pushing for a second term,
for President Eisenhower, Mon-
gomery remarked that the Presi-
dent is valuable to the universe
because he visualizes in a global
way the "vast problem" of the'
split between the Communist East
and the anti-Communist West.
"He's not only your President,"
he said, "and you value him high-
ly in the States here, but we value
him very highly in the world-
terribly highly.
"He's not only your guy, he's'
our guy."
Heavy Reinforcement
Whether he meant to or not,
Montogomery supplied heavy rein-
forcement for Republicans who
want the chief executive to run
again in 1956.
And reporters told him he had

given them the best political story
they had had here since President
Eisenhower's heart seizure.
In response to a question
w h e t h e r President Eisenhower
would be of equal value if he were
not in the White House, the field
marshal smiled and parried:
"I should think Ike would be of
great value wherever he was."
In advance of the reunion,
President Eisenhower s t a r t e d

It is the first visit of an Ameri-
can secretary of state to Yugo-

diplomatic fence to mend-more

cent flying visits to Italy and

servers. Since the dramatic visit of

grade last May, there have been
dramatic changes in the Mediter-

Molotov Flies

cess to make a hurried flight to

first defeat of the season.
The loss was Michigan's worst
setback at the hands of Illinois
since Red Grange ran wild, 39-14,
in 1924.
Blue Line Outplayed
The Michigan line was outplayed
completely by the savage ground
attack which burst upon them in
the second half. It was an attack
that came without warning-and
completely put Michigan to rout.
At half-time, Michigan found
itself deadlocked at 6-6. It was in
better shape than it was the past
two weeks, being behind on both
previous occasions. But yesterday
was to be Illinois' day.
Michigan capitalized only once.
Lou Baldacci recovered Harry Jef-
ferson's fumble on the Illini 17
yard line, and Tony Branoff raced
over on the next play at 11:05 of
the second period.
This was the last time Michigan
was in the game. The Illini de-
fense bottled up the pass catching
duo of Ron Kramer and Tom
Maentz completely by intense
rushing of the harried Michigan
players. The ground attack sput-
tered and stalled when it was
needed the most..
Mitchell Illini Spark
Illinois saved Mitchell as an ace
in the hole. When the going got
tough-in came the Hot Springs
Hotshot-and he squirted and
dodged his way through the entire
Michigan team. He couldn't be
stopped. His performance is being
likened to that of Red Grange
in 1924 and J. C. Caroline in 1953.
The Illini began their inaugural
march when center Jim Minor in-
tercepted a Baldacci pass on the
Illinois 39. Harry Jefferson, Mickey
Bates, and Ray Nitschke marched
right down in just six plays, all on
the ground, to the Michigan 33.
Quarterback Ed Lindbeck flipped
a short pass to Bob DesEnfants,
setting the Illini on the Michigan
25. Then Lindbeck again faded-
hit DesEnfants with a perfect
touchdown pass, and the Illini
were off and running, never to
be headed. The kick was no good.
Michigan marched back to tie
it up by cashing in on Jefferson's
second quarter miscue, when he
bobbled a handoff from Lindbeck
and Baldacci pounced on it. Bran-'
off's touchdown dash was spectac-
ular-as he dragged several Ill-
ini over the goal with him. The
extra point try failed, as Ron
Kramer tried to pass it-and hit
an illegal receiver.
Illini Drive Spectacular
Neither team could get going
after the half-time intermission.
Then little Mitchell went to work.

Ilhini optimism started at a Fri-

enthusiastic than its Ann Arbor
counterparts. It swept into Cham-

where customers screamed that

whole state of Michigan.
They wanted an upset, and they
got it. Their fathers, rather than

Ann Arbor visitors, turned down
at dormitories, sororities and fra-

for themselves in the race for a
place to stay. Some travelled
miles in round trips to and from
the campus.
Everybody wondered where the
Michigan band was-particularly
when its Illini counterpart took
the field. A befeathered Indian
chief, traditionally called "Iini-
wek," shared half-time honors with
the drum major with his dances.
But the Ann Arbor crowd did
get some music. Two Marching

Kalven Talks on Jury Study

Daily City Editor
Listening in on jury sessions
with hidden microphones during
actual court cases was only one
part of a more comprehensive stu-
dy of the jury system in the United
States; Prof. Harry Kalven of the
University of Chicago School of
Law said yesterday.
Information obtained with the
hidden microphones was used only
to corroborate data gathered from
other methods of study, he told
the Conference on Aims and Me-
thods of Legal Research at the
Law Quadrangle.
Discussing the controversy cre-
ated by eavesdropping on jury ses-
sions and the subsequent ban on
such a method after his address,

"Anyone with such an interest
in the American jury system as an
institution could hardly be want-
ing to destroy it," he said.
In fact, the purpose of the
study of jury behavior carried on
by -the University of Chicago, is
to learn and understand the work-
ings of the jury system and its
implications in social sciences, law
and the administration of justice
so that improvements might be
