Marks End
At Geneva
GENEVA I Russia and the
Western Powers last night broke
up the Big Four conference in con-
fessed failure to secure the peace
of Europe, unify Germany, or ex-
pand East-West relations.
The three Western foreign min-
isters bitterly accused Russia's V.
M. Molotov of bad faith in all his
major proposals during the three-
week conference.
Molotov, in his c o n c l u d i n g
speech, claimed that only the
Soviet Union had maintained the
"Geneva spirit" which marked the
summit conference here f o u r
months ago.
Won't Cease Efforts
In a separate declaration direc-
ed to Germans on both sides of the
Iron Curtain, the United States,
French and British ministers said
their governments would "not
cease their efforts to end the in-
justice and wrong now being done
by dividing the German people."
All four ministers agreed on only
one thing-no commitment to
meet again..
To Report Results
The final conference communi-
que said they would "report the
result of their discussions to their
respective heads of government
and recommend that the future
course of the discussions of the
foreign ministers should be settled
through diplomatic channels."
In 21 days, the conference scored
a series of massive failures.
Contrary to the directive from
the heads of government at the
summit meeting last July, the min-
isters contributed nothing to "the
relaxation of international tension
and the consolidation of confidence
between states." Instead, their pro-
longed psych'ological warfare here
created new distrust.
Froze German Division
They froze harder the division
of Germany between Western and
Eastern blocs, with Russia no
longer even paying lip service to
the principle of free elections to
unite 70 million Germans.

Judge, Gives

Ticket-scalping enthusiasts were
given "fair warning" yesterday by

With this Saturday's Michigan-
Ohio State game a sellout, pres-

paying as much as $10 for tickets
issued free to students by the ath-
letic department.
Ticket scalping is defined as the
selling of admission tickets above
the price set bythe issuing agency.
Though no cases of scalping have
been reported to date by either
local or state police, Judge O'Brien
issued this stern warning:
"While each case will be de-
termined on its merits, in the past
penalties have included jail sen-
tences and fines. It is the policy
of this court to impose jail sen-
tences particularly in those cases
where there has been a previous
record of like offences, and where
circumstances indicate that an
effort has been made to collect a
large number of tickets for the
purpose of charging exhorbitant
Judge O'Brien said that the
'present ticket situation is rapidly
approaching that during the OSU
clash in 1953 when two scalpers
were sentenced to 60 days in jail
and a $75 fine by his court.
"I don"t went anyone to be
misled into expecting that he can
pay any fine out of the profits
that he makes by charging ir-
regular prices," the Judge admon-
ished. '

It was difficult singling out anyone at SGC ballot-counting last
night who was just an interested spectator.
Almost everyone was either a University official, a campus leader
or a candidate-and at times not even all the candidates were present.

apathy. Assistant to the Dean of Men John Bingley noted there is
