and 20 seconds remaining in the
contest, the only American on
Michiga'n's team, Gary Mattson,

doubtedly his most important one

and give Michigan a season split
John Hutton centered the puck
from behind the Gopher nets, and
Mattson, who had registered his
first goal of the season only the
night before, deftly tapped it past

House Republicans from the Mid-
west yesterday challenged Secre-
tary of Agriculture Ezra Benson,
to offer to resign after they have
given President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower "all the facts."
Benson only Friday reaffirmed
his irtention to stay on the Job
after meeting with two represen-
tatives of the Midwest group.
However, Rep. Arthur Miller (R-
Neb.), who wrote Benson yesterday
on behalf of the group, predicted
"it might be a different story"
once they present their views to
Rep. Miller said a six-mandele-
gation hopes ;to see President
Eisenhower early next week about'
their cotnention that the admin-
istration's farm policy must be
changed if the GOP is to win the
November congressional elections.
"I suggested that Benson resign
when the President has all the
facts," Rep. Miller said. "I don't
think the President has had all
the facts that he will have after
we get through talking to him."
Rep. Miller and Rep. Walter
Judd (R-Minn.) talked' pointedly
to Benson Friday but the secre-
tary said shortly afterward he
had no intention of dropping his
program of lower price supports.
