steps which would make for a
more efficient structure.
Also on the agenda is a motion
by Daly Managing Editor Dave

period. .
With only 49 seconds of regula-
tion play left, Denver center Jack
Smith grabbed a loose puck in
front of the Wolverine goal and
batted it home to tie the score at
3-3. Only 25 seconds earlier Coach
Neil Celley had pulled his star
goalie Dave Broadbelt from the
goal and rushed six forwards.
Michigan was also underhanded
at the time with defenseman Bob
Schiller sitting in the penalty box
for board checking.
Everything that had happened
in the first 60 minutes, however,
was forgotten during the hectic
overtime period. Cries of "Let's
Go Blue!" from the remaining
majority of a 2,500 weeknight
crowd rocked the Coliseum in the
tense, extra 10-minute climax.
Both teams came close to scoring
but not close enough.
Wolverine scoring was divided
between sophomores Wally Max-

former getting two tallies.

vice as a Regent yesterday.
Regent Herbert was presented
with a beautiful silver bowl by
his fellow Regents, and cited by
Prof. Allan Smith on behalf of
the faculty for "distinguished"
Testimonial Read
"His purpose has always been
to decide what, in his own good
judgment, is best for the Univer-
sity. When that becomes clear, his
decision is clear," Prof. Smith read
from a testimonial for the Senate
Advisory Committee of the Fac-
ulty Senate at a Monday night

Bentley Calls
For Respect
Of Minorities
"The Role of Labor Unions in
Politics" was Rep. Alvin M. Bent-
ley's (R-Mich) topic in an address
before the Young Republicans Club
in the Union last night.
Quoting the President and the
Secretary of Labor, Bentley wel-
comed organized labor's participa-
tion in politics as long as the rights
of minority groups within the
unions are not prevented from
freely expressing views which dif-
fer from union leadership's.
Expressing the belief that the
Republican Party has little to gain
by appealing to labor leaders for
support, Rep. Bentley called for
Republican efforts to gain sup-
port from workers as individuals.
Pointing to the favorable condi-
tions created by the Eisenhower
administration leading to current
national prosperity, he noted the
job of Republicans in the coming
election year is to see that the
present administration gets the
credit for it.
On the possibility of President
Eisenhower being a candidate in
next year's election, the Congress-
man commented no one, even the
president himself, could predict
the answer at this time.

the details will be worked out in
time to be presented to the Regents
at the January meeting, he said.
SGC President Hank Berliner,
'56, saidhe "had every reason to
believe the Regents have endorsed
the plan" to modify the controver-
sial driving ban.
To Ask For Committee
SGC will ask Dean of Men Wal-
ter B. Rea to appoint a commit-
tee with student representation to
work out administrative regula-
tions for presentation at the Janu-
ary Regents' meeting, Berliner
The Regents raised questions
about parking, enforcement of
modified rules, and administration
of the proposed new regulations in
an executive session prior to the
regular December meeting yester-
day, according to Lewis. SGC
raised similar questions last week
before approving the report and
its..recommended changes.
The. report, prepared by a study
committee of students, faculty and
townspeople and chaired by As-
sistant Dean of Men Karl D.
Streiff, calls for permissin to drive
for students more than 21 years
of age.
It also provides strict penalties
for violations-fines up to $50 for
first violations and expulsion for
a semester for second violations.
Need More Time
The Regents deferred considera-
tion of the specific recommenda-
tions until January to allow them-
selves more time for study of the
report and Lewis more time to
work out administrative details.
The Regents highly commended
the study committee for its work
on the problem. They mentioned
appreciation for bringing towns-
peolle onto the committee to study
the driving ban.
Under present Regent by-laws,
only students more than 26 years
of age or those having special per-
mission are allowed to drive. This
rule has been in effect since 1928.
No formal statement of ap-
proval in principle of the changes
was made. Regent Alfred B. Con-
nable of Kalamazoo suggested an
amendment to the original mo-
tion, which called for January ac-
tion, that the Regents officially
indicate approval in principle.
Thought Statement Unnecessary
But Regent Otto E. Eckert of
Lansing, who made the original
motion, thought approval in prin-
ciple was indicated by the Regents'
past interest in the problem, and
that a formal statement was un-
Placing the modification of driv-
ing rules as the first order of busi-
ness at the next meeting was also
considered adequate indication of
approval in principle.
Members of the study commit-
tee that prepared the report were
Chief of Police Casper M. Enke-
mann, Councilman Norman Ran-
dall, Rudolph Reichert, Prof. John
Kohl of the engineering college,
Prof. Roger W. Heyns of the psy-
chology department, Eugene Hart-
wig, '59L, Bill Diamond, '56E, and
Bill Hanks, '56 BAd.

The half joking, half melan-
