Storm Hits U.S.;
Takes 170 Lives
Ann Arbor Temperature Reaches
Low of -8, Rise Likely Today
A predicted high of 10 to 12 degrees-above-zero faces the Ann
Arbor area today after a low of seven degrees-below-zero yesterday
and temperatures of five degrees-below-zero early this morning.
Admitting to two and four-tenths inches of snowfall on Satur-
day and "traces" of snow yesterday, one phase of the Willow Run
Weather Station's report can be questioned by many Ann Arbor resi-
dents, still digging out from Saturday's snow blitz.
Forecast for the Michigan area is continued cold and generally
fair, with heavy snows near Lake Michigan and occasional snow
flurries in other areas.
Weather forecasters predict moderating temperature for tomor-
row in the Ann Arbor area.

Rebels Seek.
Gold Control
JAKARTA, Indonesia (')-Indo-
nesia's rebel government in Su-
matra stepped up its economic
war on the central government
yesterday, seeking to tie up its
gold abroad and to shut off its
major income at home.
With financial wizard Sjadrud-
din Prawiranegara as its premier
the rebel regime asked 40 banks
in the United States and 16 other
countries to block all gold bal-
ances belonging to the central
It called for reports on balances

The rebels launched their eco-
nomic war Sunday with orders to
all foreign oil companies in Indo-
nesia to halt oil shipments and
payment of oil royalties to Ja-
There was no immediate indica-
tion whether foreign governments
or firms would comply with either
order. Sumatra is the richest in
oil of all Indonesia's islands. It
would be a severe blow to the
central government if its millions
in oil income were cut off.
The avowed aim of the rebels is
to force out the central govern-
ment of Premier Djuanda and
force President Sukarno to drop
his program of "guided Democra-

North Korea
Re'jects Plea
munist North Korea yesterday re-
jected a demand by the United
Nations Command for the immedi-
ate return of a South Korean
airliner which flew 32 persons to
North Korea Sunday.
Communist spokesmen at a
meeting of the Military Armistice
Commission secretariat here said
the South Korean government
must deal directly with the North
Korean regime.
South Korea did not sign the
armistice suspending the Korean
War and has no direct contact
with the Red regime.
The North Korean radio Sunday
night admitted the plane was in
North Korea and claimed the in-
cident was the result of a defec-
tion to the 'Communists. Aboard
were two American pilots and 30
others, mostly Koreans.
A South Korean spokesman at
Seoul said it was a case of "burg-
lary in broad daylight." He said
the passengers and crew in effect
were kidnapped.
The plane vanished after flying
past Seoul from Pusan Sunday.
South Korea radar tracked it as
far as Sunan, site of a Red air
base about 15 miles north of
Pyongyang, North Korean capital.

Spartans whip wolverines, 79-69

Michigan State moved to a
"comfortable" lead in the tight
Big Ten basketball race last night
with a 79-69 defeat of Michigan
before nearly 8,700 fans at Yost
Field House.
It was the Spartans' seventh
Conference win against three
losses. Coupled with Ohio State's,
93-83, victory over Indiana, it gave
MSU a one game lead over idle
Purdue, who backed into second
place with a 6-4 record.
The loss was Michigan's third
straight. The Wolverines who led
the league eight days ago, have
now dropped into the seventh
place with a 4-5 record.
Spartans Pull Ahead
After a slow start, the Spartans
jumped out to a 31-25 half-time
lead and then constantly beat
back Wolverine second-half chal-
lenges with torrid out-court shoot-
ing led by forward Bob Anderegg.
The Spartan forward, who was
high man for the night with 25
points, scored 21 in the second
half on a hot streak of jump shots
from the corner. Star eenter :
Johnny Green, who had three dif-
ferent Wolverines guarding him at
various times during the game,
hit a respectable 18.
Forward George Lee lead Michi-
gan with 22, while Pete Tillotson
hit for 17.
Anderegg Stops Drives
On two different occasions in
the second half, the Wolverines
pulled 'to within two points only
to have Anderegg hit from the
side, killing the spurt.
They quickly bounced back from
the six point half-time deficit to
trail, 35-33, but Anderegg, play-
ing his best game of the season,
hit four straight baskets and a
foul shot to help boost the Spar-
tans to seven-point, 46-39, lead.
Not ready to give up, the Wol-
verines came fighting back to trail
by two 47-49, only to have An-
deregg hit again. Tillotson hit a

Expels Negro
LITTLE ROCK (P)-The Little
Rock School Board decided last
night to expel Minniejean Brown
from integrated Central High
School for the remainder of this
The move was recommended by
school Supt. Virgil T. Blossom.
W. B. Brown, father of the 16-
year-old Negro girl, labelled the
decision as "very unfair."
"It sounded to me like Mr. Blos-
som was expelling Minniejean for
her own safety," Brown said. "He
didn't say it in those words, but
that's the way we took it."
The Negro girl claims she has
been a main target of segrega-
tionist students during her five
months at the school. She had
been suspended in incidents in-
volving Minniejean.

Michigan, with fine outside

the Spartans' zone defense, jump-

through the half. State cut the,

The British bases, reported to be
four in number and strung along
Britain's eastern coast, are sched-
uled to be armed with United
States Jupiter and Thor ballistic
missiles by the end of the year.
Could Reach USSR
From Britain these 1,500-mile
missiles could conceivably reach
as far north into Russia as Arch-
angel, just below the Arctic Circle,
and as far east as Odessa, on the
Black Sea.
Moscow and Leningrad would be
within the firing radius. Bases in
France would provide even deeper
Gen. Lauris Norstad, NATO's
European commander, said in
Paris Monday that while prelimi-
nary discussions have been started
with France for bases there, no
specific agreement has been reach-
ed so far.
Joint Control Planned
Under the arrangement with
Britain, the launching sites will be
jointly controlled.
Information from London is that
Britain will pay the 90-million-
dollar cost of constructing the
sites and the United States, in,
addition to providing the weapons,
will furnish Air Force crews to
man the sites initially.
Later the Royal Air Force will
take over the British bases. RAF
crews are now in this country
training on the Thor and Jupiter.
Hydrogen warheads for the mis-
siles will be stockpiled at the bases
but they will remain under Ameri-
can control. Wartime firing of the
missiles, it is understood, would be
by mutual agreement of the United
States and the host country.

Buildings at 712 N. Fourth Ave. and 630 Hiscock St. were the

Four minutes later an alarm was reported at the Fourth Avenue

Sparks from plumbers' blowtorches, being used to thaw frozen
