Kramer Goes On 34-Point Spree
To Set New Michigan Scoring Mark
Special To The Daily


EVANSTON, Ill.-Paced by Ron Kramer's record-breaking 34
points, the Michigan basketball squad topped Northwestern 94-76 last
night in McGaw Memorial Field House.
The victory kept the Wolverines in the thick of the Conference
cage chase with only one setback in four outings. The mark is good
for a second place deadlock behind pace-setting Illinois.
Kramer netted 11 field goals and .12 free throws in compiling his
total which broke his own mark of 30 points established earlier in
the season.
Never headed, Michigan moved quickly to an 11-0 margin before
the Wildcats were able to get going. The 'Cats narrowed the spread

Talk About
Many students had definite
opinions yesterday on the faculty
and course evaluation that will
take place Tuesday and Wednes-
day in literary college classes.
A large majority favored the
use of the questionnaires in their

was that of James Dincolo, '59,
who said that "it gives the-student
a feeling that he has a part in the
Others Agree
Others were quick 0o agree with
him. They thought that the evalu-
ation would certainly be fruitful in
helping students to understand the
value of their courses , better and
in helping teachers to improve
their methods.
However, as quickly as students
agreed on the merits of the com-
ing evaluation program, they add-
ed their suspicions, doubts and
Onesof the major doubts of:the
wrthiness of thq program was
expressed by Harold G. Bay, 59,
who said "it'll be based too much
on personal feelings and not on
an objective viewpoint."
Students OpInion Differs
Although several students felt
this way about the question, they
differed on whether the student
would be overly harsh or lenient
in his criticism.
Some said that the student who
was doing poorly in the course
would bend over backward to de-
nounce his professor or teaching
Taylor House's Resident Adviser,
James R. Davies, Grad., felt just
the opposite. He said that students
would be overly generous with
their teachers.
Davies Favors Evaluation
However, Davies was very much
in favor of the evaluation on the
grounds that they do contain very
pertinent information. He explain-
ed that the staff of Taylor House
received some very good informa-
tion from its recent staff evalua-
Although many felt that the
students would be biased in the
completion of the questionnaire, it
was also felt that the procedure
for handling the questionnaires
would help some.
After the filled-in blanks have
been collected, they will be placed
in sealed envelopes and stored until
all marks are in for the semester.
Teachers Use Evaluations
Then the envelopes will be re-
turned to the individual teachers
3 who will use them as they see fit.
"But most people don't bother
to take time to fill the question-
S naire out," Buddha Birnbaum, 58.
complained. He also stated that
the evaluation program has the
same bad points as StudentGov-
ernment Council, in that "no one
knows who they're voting for."
On the other hand, some stu-
dents questioned said they won-
dered what the individual teachers
would do with the forms.
"I think it's a good thing,"
Robert Jones, '56, summed it up,
"but I wonder how much heed
will be paid to the results.'

again moved out ahead.
Within Easy Reach
Northwestern kept within easy
reach of the winners until finally
knotting the count at 33 apiece.
The score was tied twice more be-
fore the Wolverines left the court
at the half owning a 42-41 lead.
With the opening of the second
half Michigan slowly increased its
lead with sharp defensive play and
backboard coitrol. The 'Cats,
weren't able to cope with the su-
perior rebounding power of the
visitors and couldn't keep pace.
The Wolverines took advantage
of Wildcat mistakes and turned
them into points to seal the vic-
tory, their seventh of the season
against four losses.
Pivot Weak
The pivot was known to be a
sore spot with the Wildcats
and the Wolverines expedited the
weakness by feeding Kramer who
faked and then drove to the bas-
ket for the majority of his points.

Soviet Union
Unveils Sixth
5-Year Plan
MOSCOW (JP-The Soviet Union
unveiled today its sixth Five Year
It calls for tremendous boosts
in heavy industry with special
emphasis placed on an increase in
production of atomic energy.
Farm output was also stressed.
The huge Soviet farm collectives
are called upon to increase pro-
duction by 100 per cent.
Goals Announced
r The new goals were announced
in advance of the 20th congress of
' the Soviet Communist Party next
month, when the party will be
asked to approve the new Five
Year Plan.
According: to figures splashed
over the pages of Pravda, the
Communist party newspaper, an
average increase of 65 per cent is
sought in the total industrial out-
It was divided this way: heavy
industry 70 per cent; consumer
goods light industry 60 per cent.
Output Boost Planned
The highly ambitious program
would boost all industrial output
by more than half over the next
five years.
It includes a brisk stepup of
atomic energy power.
The program envisaged calls for
construction of atomic stations to
provide 22 million kilowatts. It
represents a substantial program

Printers, stereotypers, mailers
and teamsters all approved new
contracts with the Detroit News,

mediately called off picket lines
which had paraded before the
three newspaper plants for more
than six weeks.
Stereotypers Began Walkout
The stereotypers started the
walkout Dec. 1, hours after their
contract expired. The printers and
mailers joined the strike shortly
before Christmas.
The teamsters, who drive news-
paper delivery trucks, did not go
on strike. But they contract sep-

sides were tight-lipped as to any
program made, but some sources
seemed optimistic.
All three of the striking unions
were given wage increases of $3.75

Oppose Ike
Aid Program
WASHINGTON - Sen. William
F. Knowland of California, the
GOP Senate leader, yesterday
joined Sen. Walter E. George (D-
Ga.) in opposing President Dwight
D. Eisenhower's proposal for a
long-range foreign aid program.
Sen. Knowland told newsmen
he has informed Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles he thinks it
would be a mistake for the ad-
ministration to ask Congress for
any 10-year commitment to give
economic and military assistance
to other countries. ,
"It is my belief that it would be
far better for them to come to
Congress and make their presen-

tation each year rather than to
propose a 10-year program," Sen.
Knowland said.



Men Spend
Most Money
At School
Men spend slightly more than
women during the school year
according to a recently conducted
Out-state women living in resi-
dence halls spent more than out-
state men in residence halls but in
all other classifications the men
were ahead.
The survey, conducted by John
Bingley, assistant dean of men and
Dean of Women Deborah Bacon,
showed over-all average costs for
in-state women are $1,262 per year.
Out-state women spend an aver-
age of $1,540 a year.
$1,425 for In-State Men
Men living in residence halls or
fraternities averaged $1425 for in-
state and $1700 for out-state stu-
Bingley said he thought the
amount of money spent for recre-
ation accounted for the difference
between highest costs reported by
men taking the survey and lowest
Practically 100 per cent of in-
state men questioned said they
work during the summer. Fifty
per cent work all year.
Of the out-state men taking the
survey, about 85 per cent work
during the summer and 33 per
cent during the entire year.
Little Difference Reported
There was little difference be-
tween the number of fraternity
men who help support themselves
and the number of men living in
residence halls.
About 80 per cent of the in-state
women questioned are employed
during the summer (with the ex-
ception of women living in co-ps
where the percentage was much
Only 63 per cent of the out-state
women reported summer employ-
Roughly 42 per cent of all wom-
en in residence halls said they
work during the school year but
only six per cent of the sorority
women questioned worked then.
Survey Broken Down
The yearly cost survey was
broken down by sex, in-state or
out-state, and type of living (resi-
dence halls, co-ops or fraternities.)
For men, costs ranged from $820
a year to $2265. The range for
women was $750 to $1,917.
In-state men living in residence
halls averaged $1,400 a year. Those
in fraternities averaged $1,457.
Out-state men averaged $1,626 a
year for residence halls and $1,844
for fraternities.
Women from Michigan spent an
average $1,322 in residence halls
and $1,438 in.sororities. Out-state
women averaged $1,702 in dorms
and $1,750 in sororities.
A significant difference between
men and women, according to the
survey, was earning power. Men
reported earnings as high as $1,650
for a summer with the average
about $625.,
Highest earnings reported for
women were $380 for a summer.

Michigan Nips Gopher Six Again, 21



Michigan raged from behind
with two second period goals last
night to hang on to their slim
Western Intercollegiate Hockey'
League lead. as they defeated
Minnesota 2-1 at the Coliseum.
A capacity crowd of better than
3,500 roared their approval as
Neil Buchanan and Neil McDonald
tallied within almost two minutes
of each other mid-way in the
period to provide the Wolverines
with all the scoring punch they
needed to down the Gophers for
the second straight night.
Minnesota drew first blood in
the game, garnering their lone
goal of the evening after nine
Council Hears
1956 Plans
The Board of Directors of the
Development Council held its first
meeting of 1956 yesterday and
heard reports from subcommittee
chairmen and a review of plans for
the coming year,
Donna Netzer, '56, and Richard
Snyder, '57, reported on the work
of the Student Relations Comn-
mittee since its organization last
September, and the group was
commended for its progress by
Earl H. Cress, presiding officer
of the Board.
Alan W. MacCarthy, Director of
the Development Council, explain-
ed the structure of the Council's
administrative organization, and
Glenn Coulter, of Detroit, chair-
man of the Committee on Univer-
sity Needs, outlined the project
objectives of his group.

Of BarExam
The following Ann Arbor resi-
dents passed the State Bar Ex-

minutes of the fifst period hadl
been played.
Petroske Tallies
Taking advantage of a Michi-
gan penalty, Gopher defenseman
Jack Petroske took a pass from
Ken Wellen to beat Lorne Howes
cleanly with a screen shot from
the blue line.
Then Michigan, attempting to
gain the equalizer, swarmed into
the Minnesota zone and it took
superb efforts on the part of
goalie Jack McCarten to thwart
their bids. Both McCarten and
Howes were called upon several
times to make sensational saves
in the hard fought first period.
A shot by Bill MacFarland epit-
omized the Wolverines futility in
the period. The Michigan Captain
sped in along the left boards in
the opening minute of play and
sent a blazing shot past MacCarten
only to have it hit the pipe and
bounce away.

The partisan Michigan crowd
warmed up to the situation and
called for a Wolverine goal as the
second period opened. Dick Dunni-
gan brought the cheering crowd
to their feet at the four minute
mark when he narrowly missed
scoring on a close-in shot that was
smothered by McCarten.
Then at 8:29 Gopher center
Mike Pearson went off for cross
checking and less than a half
minute later Neil Buchanan took
a pass from Don McIntosh and
sent the puck flying through a
maze of players and into the
net. <
Pressure Pays Off
Then after McCarten had turn-
ed aside a couple of shots, defense-
man Bernie Hanna fired a shot
that caromed off Neil McDonald's
stick and past the surprised net-
minder to wind up the scoring
for the evening.

Republicans Rise
To New Defense
WASHINGTON (P)-Democrats
launched fresh attacks yesterday
on Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles' statement that this coun-
try had averted war- by going to
the "brink of war," but Republi-
cans rose to his defense.
The White House remained silent
on the controversy, which grew out
of a Life Magazine interview
quoting Sec. Dulles that Red China
had been blocked three times by
going "tothe verge without getting
into war."
Sec. Dulles said this policy of
"deterrence" had worked success-
fully in the Korean, Indochinese
and Formosan crises of 1953 and
1954. He called it "a necessary art,"
and said "if you are scared to go
to the brink, you're lost."
Stevenson Comments
In Chicago, Adlai E. Stevenson
said in a statement Sec. Dulles is
"willing to play Russian roulette
with the life of our nation," Stev-.
enson, a candidate forthe, Demo-
cratic . presidential nomination,;
added that the art of diplomay,
"especially in this atomic age,
must lead to peace, not war or the
brink of war."
Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey (D-
Minn.), speaking out for the third
time in three days in criticism of
the article, called on President
Dwight D. Eisenhower "to tell the
world that the United States has
no 4intention. of conducting its
foreign policy by bringing us and
the world to the brink of war."
But Sen. William F. Knowland
(R-Calif.) contended Sec. Dulles
"is not advising that we go to the
brink of war as a policy."
Enemy Restraint
He said Sec. Dulles meant only
that potential enemies may re-
strain themselves if they realize
there is a point beyond which the
United States cannot be pushed.
Seven Republican "House mem-
bers who toured last fall behind
the Iron Curtain issued a state-
ment praising Sec. Dulles' foreign
policy as "the nation's best guar-
antee for maintaining peace."
Speaking through Rep. P. S,
Hillings (R-Calif.) they referred
to what they called the policy of
"appeasement and, retreat"'under
former President Harry S. Truman
and former Secretary of State
Dean Acheson and said that under
it "a war broke out in Korea, and
many American boys were killed
or maimed."
The article also had repercus-
ions overseas. In Vienna, the
Communist p a p e r Volkeetimme
said Sec. Dulles' statements were
"a virtual refutation of claims the
United States would never touch
off an atomic war."
The Soviet newspaper Izvetia
referred to "the peculiar theory"
of Sec. Dulles "on constantly keep-
ing international tension 'on the
verge of war,"' and said it "can-
not be regarded as other than open
encouragement of bellicose state-
ments of American generals and

Professor Calls Daily
Editorial Contemptible

Choir Boys To Give Mozart Concert

New reactions to Friday's Daily
editorial criticizing the faculty for
failing to lead campus opinion on
controversial issues ranged from
"contempt" to disagreement.
One professor, who chose not to
be quoted, commented that he had
"a great deal of contempt for the
whole thing."
Asked about the faculty's re-
sponsibility for stimulating dis-
cussion, he said, "the faculty has
some responsibility for teaching
you kids to act like decent men."
Calling the editorial "sneaky"
and indecent," he added, "you fel-
lows have no loyalty to the Uni-
versity. You live on controversy,
parasites thrive on it. This con-
troversy is all bad stuff."
Liberals Pushing
Another professor saw no signs
'of anyone pushing anyone around.

Bretton Comments
Prof. Bretton commented on a
statement by Prof. William Leslie
of the history department, who.
had complained of a "dangerous"
tendency toward trying "to locate
the consensus and move toward
that consensus."
"I have the impression," Prof.
Bretton remarked, "that he labors
,under the assumption that the
consensus must always be wrong.
"There will always be some in
any group," the political scientist
went on, "who will be acting under
the motivation" to follow the con-
sensus. "I don't think it's true of a
majority of the faculty."
Prof. Bretton said he does "not
