Work on Driving
Ban Progressing
Student-Faculty Talks Very Fruitful
In Solving Problem Dean Rea Says
With three weeks remaining before the next Regents' meeting,
discussion on policies and procedures relating to the proposed driving
ban change is "progressing remarkably well."
Informal student-faculty-administration talks have proved very
fruitful to date and cooperation is the by-word on the attempt to
solve the driving problem, according to Dean of Men Walter B. Rea.
Typical of general administration and student comment, Dean
Rea's statement indicates that a sincere effort is being made to
present administrative recommendations on the amendment of By-
law 8.05, approved by Student Government Council and agreed to
"in principle" by the Regents at their Dec. 13th meeting.
Plan to Be Submitted
The Regents scheduled full consideration of the proposal as the
first order of business when they meet Jan. 27, and called for sub-

WASHINGTON ('-Sen. W. F. George (D-Ga) voiced vigoro
opposition yesterday to President Dwight. D. Eisenhower's propc
that Congress authorize a long-range program of economic aid
other nations.
Sen. George, who heads the Poreign Relations Committee anc

In Overtime
Special To The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.-No mat-
ter what the opinion, before,
Michigan's basketball team is defi-
nitely not "down and out" in the
Big Ten.
In the game here last night, the
Wolverines played a highly rated
Minnesota team to a 71-71 stand-
still at the end of regulation time,
and then dramatically went on to
a last second overtime upset, 8 1-79.
With but 30 seconds of over-.
time remaining and the score tied
79-79 Michigan got control of the
ball, and patiently held it to get
the last shot. The clock ticked
away and still they stalled.
Shearon Nets Long Shot
Finally, as the clock showed but
seven seconds of overtime to go,
Jim Shearon let go with a 30 foot
j ump shot, and it swished through.
Minnesota took a wild desperation
heave which missed and the game
was Michigan's-its first Confer-
ence win.
To set up these last minute
dramatics, the Wolverines had let
a 10-point lead slip through their
fingers. They had outscored Min-
nesota at the end of the first half,
45-38, and with nearly eight min-
utes of the second half played

Out Troops

Carlos Ibanez's government moved

avert a threatened nationwide
Four regiments of troops and
500 navy men were brought from
the provinces to Santiago, increas-
ing the capital's military strength
to 30,000. The government palace
was guarded by four tanks. Police
squads patrolled the city's streets
around the clock.
The army also took ovr key rail
points and at least 300 persons
have been arrested.
The government acted under a
state of siege declared last Sun-
day. Most of those arrested are
labor union leaders, but some im-
portant politicians, who once sup-
ported Ibanez and some news-
papermen also were Diabbed. If
Congress approves the siege state
at the special session opening
Wednesday, those arrested can be
held up to six months without
court action.
Ibanez also is asking Congress
to approve a freeze on wages,t
prices, and pensions. This move is1
a desperate effort to curb infla-
tion which has been plaguing thet
country for 15 years and now has
reached the galloping stage. t

Ellender (D-La) yesterday chal-
lenged President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower and Secretary of Agricul-
ture Ezra Taft Benson to "keep
the new farm legislation out of
partisan politics."
Sen.Ellender, Democratic chair-
man of the Senate Agriculture
Committee, said he made his pro-
posal at a conference with Secre-
tary Benson and Sen. G. D. Aiken
(R-Vt), senior GOP member of the
Senate farm group.
"If they will accept a bill that
includes the best recommendations
of farmers, farm organizations,
the Department of Agriculture and
Congress, I think we can act
quickly," Sen. Ellender said in an
"If they come up here with an
administration bill and say 'It's
that or nothing', then I will take
that as a signal they want a politi-
cal advantage rather than a real
solution to our farm problemns."
President Eisenhower will detail
his farm program recommenda-
tions in a special message to Con-
gress tomorrow.
In his broad State of the Union
outline last Thursday, President
Eisenhower urged that farm prob-
lems be kept out of partisan poli-
tics. "I told Secretary Benson this
could be done if the administration
cooperates with my committee and
the Congress," Sen. Ellender said.
Sen. Ellender said he asked Ben-
son to include these four major
points in the program the ,Presi-
dent sends to Congress:
1. Effective methods for dis-
posal of the more than seven bil-
lion dollars worth of accumulated
farm spluses.
2. A "soil bank" plan that
would give farmers payments in
either commodities or cash if they
agreed to retire acreages produc-
ing surplus crops.
3. Revision of farm price sup-
ports so that cotton, wheat and
other crops would get quality rat-
ing values. Critics say much of
t he surplus wheat and cotton now
in government hands are of in-
ferior grades.
4. Trial of a two-price plan on
rice, one of the six basic crops-
rice needed for domestic food pur-
poses would get high-level govern-
ment supports while that for ex-
port or other uses would sell for
whatever it brings.

More Housing
Space Opened
Housing situation in men's resi-
dence halls will not be as tight
during the second semester as it
was in September, Assistant Dean
of Men Karl Streif said yesterday.
Streiff urged students now liv-
ing outside residence halls who
would like dormitory rooms next
semester to make application now
in the Office of Student Affairs,I
1020 Administration Bldg.
"We are particularly interested
in accomodating' those who were
turned down in September." StreiffE
commented. He noted many of the
students unable to live in residence
halls last semester were forced to
accept substandard housing.,
Reconversion of West Quad-
rangle's Chicago House will pro-
vide additional housing for ap-
proximately 140 men.
Streiff noted Chicago House is
accepting applications from older
students on campus who want to
return to University housing.

Rough Contest
The contest was rough and fast
from the opening face-off until
the final horn. Volleys of shots,
brilliant saves, fights, scrambles,
brawls, lighting fast plays, pin-
point passing-all were profusely
present in the two hour spectacle.
The Wolverines pressed the at-
tack all the way but did not sew

Dean Rea Compliments
Work o House Council
Dean of Men Walter B. Rea concluded the third annual Inter-
House Council Conference yesterday by complimenting students and
administration for their working together.
"The participation of so many of us." Dean Rea said, referring
to the many faculty members present, "does show a real concern on
our part with the entire residence halls picture."
Again speaking of the administration, he added that they get
"inspiration and experience" from discussions like those conducted
At the summary sesson of the day's 12 meetings. IHC President
Tom Bleha, '56, summed up the
- success of the conference.
Real Value
"It's important." Bleha said. "to
get the people together to talk
about a problem, even if it's just
the dog races in Florida. That is
For the first time, the confer-
ence had a theme this year, "Let's
Improve the House."
"In future years." Bleha said.
"we will approach the conference
from a different way. But don't
forget that this year we discussed
the house, and that we can look
back on this conference and build
on it."
h Dean Rea also expressed the
hope that the delegates, as stu-
I dent leaders, would take back to
I their groups and continue, in
smaller discussions, the pursuit of
the problems discussed yesterday.
"We will always welcome
thoughts that come from you,"
I Dean Rea concluded.

A habitual fire chaser, Arthur Fiedler will be made an honorary
fire chief of Ann Arbor following the Boston Pops Orchestra concert
he will conduct at 8:30 p.m. today in Hill Auditorium.
Mayor William E. Brown will present a fire helmet and the keys
to the city to Fiedler at this time.
The dynamic orchestra leader is an honorary fire chief in over
twenty cities including Boston, San Francisco and San Antonio. His
car is equipped not only with a short wave radio but also a siren.
Fiedler is known as the man who has made the Pops a synonym
for light, enjoyable classical and semi-classical music. The distin-

certs played on the bank of the Charles River in, 1929, and the following
year began conducting the Boston Symphony Pops Concerts, an insti-
