Iraq Asks U.S.
For Military Aid
Fears Pro-Soviet Controlled Syria;
Wants Jet Planes, Antiaircraft
WASHINGTON (P)-Iraq formally appealed yesterday for Am-
erican jet planes and antiaircraft "defensive weapons."
The request came amid reports that a group of pro-Soviet army
officers has seized virtual control of neighboring Syria.
Iraq's Ambassador Moussa Al-Shabandar asked for the arms
during a call at the State Department.

.-Itustseemed to be "Michigan's
Day" last Saturday in Columbus.
< YzThe 1956 football season ended
on a positive note for the Wol-
verines, who added up an overall
season record of seven wins and

in the Big Ten Conference, and a
final ranking of seventh in the
nation by the AP poll.

Saturday's impressive 19-0 de-
feat of Ohio State will long be
remembered by most of the chilled
82 223 fans in attendance.
For the enthusiastic Michigan
contingent of nearly 10,000 the
game brought a satisfying reversal
of last year's distasteful 17-0 de-
feat in Ann Arbor.
The game also left the impres-
sion that maybe this Michigan
= yteam was the best in the Confer-
ence. After all, Michigan State
and Ohio State had fallen, Minne-

A number of the demonstrators
were refugees from Latvia, Lithu-
ania and the Ukraine.
As Kudryavtsev described it,
"Americans assured us that true
Americans had nothing whatever
to do with the hostile hoodlum
ruffianism we received at the
hands of reactionary scum from
among Displaced Persons in Den-
ver, Ann Arbor and Wichita."
Prof. Pollock, when he finished
chuckling, called the description
in Izvestia "typical Russian jour-
nalism" and said the observers
were "treated very politely."
The students who picketed were
"a little bit persistent, but I
wouldn't say they were impolite.
"I explained that this is a free
country and that unless what they
did was against the law they were
free to do it."
He said the Russian comments
"speak something for the selec-
tivity of their thinking" when the
demonstrations were described'and
sights such as the Rackham
Building, the law library, and the
stadium were ignored.
Prof. Pollock also suggested that
"an hour and a half seminar with
me and two other elections ex-
perts in the department" would
be something the Russians would
remember, if not report,
