Special To The Daily
CHICAGO-Senator Estes Kefauver (D-Tenn.), taking time out
from monopoly and crime investigations, left his position in the
presidential nomination race open for investigation, as he postponed
defnite comment until at least December 16.
The Tennessee senator, who was boosted into the national lime-
light as a result of his wide-spread crime investigations, appeared
sharp-witted and poised before the nation's top political reporters.
He said he woul dannounce no stand until he completed previous
hearing and report-filing commitments and paused to confer with
leading Democratic supporters and

Band To Hail
By TAMMY MORRISON
Thoughts of California will fill
the minds of the sell-out crowd
at the Michigan Stadium today in
more ways than one.
The Michigan Marching Band
will make its contribution to Pasa-
dena fever at half-time with a his-
torical salute to another suburb
of Los Angeles-Hollywood.
The 120-piece all-brass Ohio

will join forces with the Michigan
marchers for the pre-game show,,

theme will be "A Saturday Ddte

Hints at Campaign
He hinted at his present atti-
tude, saying "if I become a candi-
date I will carry on a campaign
not of tearing down, but of en-
deavoring to present a program
for the future.
"I can think of no nobler ambi-
tion than running for President,"
he added sincerely, and then
quipped, "nor anything more fun."
He commented about other candi-
dates with an air of calm know-
ingness, and stated he would have
to consult other leaders as to his
chances before he decided to toss
his hat into the proverbial politi-
In his most controversial state-
ment Sen. Kefauver charged the
Democratic National Committee
with violating neutrality toward
the candidates by sending out
telegrams signed by Adlai Steven-
"I'm not complaining," the sena-
tor said. "I just don't think it's
proper. Put that together if you
can," he challenged the reporters.

The sloppy conditions should only0
make more equal what is already

If the Wolverines defeat Ohio,
they take the Big Ten crown, and
march on to Pasadena. If Ohio
State downs Michigan, the Buck-

drop to third, and the Spartans of

nod. A tie would do the same.
Ohio State, unbeaten in Con-

for this, but they are not avail-
able to the Council for a year and
a half, Diamond added. Therefore,

Success Despite Snow,
By BILL HANEY
Last night's pep rally lived up to expectations of being "The
biggest and best rally this University has ever seen."
According to Student Government Council officials, other campus
leaders, and over six thousand students it was a success despite the
snow and cold.
The rally was not supposed to form at the-Union until 8:15 p.m.
but as early as 8 o'clock expectant students had filled the Union
steps, overflowed onto State Street -and crowded sidewalks as far as
the Administration Building.
Fire-crackers, small house bands, fire sirens, and spontaneous
cheers and songs put the "beat Ohio State" spirit into the crowd
even, before the University Marching Band appeared to lead the rally
to Ferry Field.
By the time the Band reached Ferry Field where the entertain-
ment was staged, the ralliers, packed tightly on the sidewalks and
street, stretched all the way back to the intersection of Packard and
