Daiy Sports Editor
Ohio State, already the Big Ten Conference Football Champions
for 1957, and Michigan will clash at 1:30 today in the Stadium to
close out the 1957 season.
A sell-out crowd of 101,001 Eans will witness this 54th game of
the 60-year-old series.

Successful Season Possible
The best answer from a Michi-
gan point of view is that a victory
over Ohio State will make the
difference between a mediocre
and a successful season on the,
It's been a relatively tough year
for the Wolverines. They suffered
humniliation at the hands.of Mich-
igan State, a bitter sense of fail-
ure in tying Iowa, and severe dis-
appointment ' down at Illinois.
With all this, their record in
Big Ten play is still 3-2-1. A vic-
tory today would up it to 4-2-1,
better than all teams except Ohio
State, Iowa, and Michigan State.
A victory would prove Michigan as
good or better than two of these
Victory Remembered
Even if the recorl were worse,
beating the visitors from Colum-

that strong.
The coaches and this year's

17-0 trouncing Michigan took in
1955 to lose* both championship
and Rose Bowl bid.
These same seniors have an
even bigger stake in today's game.

For these reasons it's obviously
not a "nothing" game for Michi-
gan. The team has been in secretL
practice all week and reports have
come from these sessions that
they are working as hard as they
have all year. Everyone is ii-
spired to the task.
As for Ohio State, the game has
the same meaning in traditiohal
rivalry terms as it does to Michi-

New Strife
Breaks Out
In Mid-East
BEIRUT, Lebanon (P)-A series
of new incidents from Lebanon
southward through Jerusalem to
Cairo set the Middle East post to
boiling again yesterday.
Lebanese security forces refused
to permit 17 members of the Sy-
rian Parliament to cross the bor-
der into this tiny republic on the
Mediterranean shoreline. The Sy-
rian government . :as reported in-
Plane Refused Landing
Egyptian authorities refused to
let a Jordan airliner land in Cairo
with its 20 passengers, includting a
seven-man Jordan delegation to
an Arab educational conference, a
Jordanian airline spokesman
charged in Amman.
No official explanation was
given for either action.
At the same time a blockade in
Old Jerusalem ad new outbreaks
of gunfire sharpened Jordan-Is-
raeli enmity.
Hussein Suspected
High - ranking Israeli officials
said they believed Jordan's King
Hussein, whose enemies in Soviet-
aided Syria and Egypt have been
calling for his assassination, had
started a new campaign to dis-
drove charges that he is soft to-
ward Israel.
These incidents occurred as an
interview with Soviet party boss
Nikita Khrushchev was published
in Cairo reviving charges that the
United States had tried to inveigle
Jordan and Iraq, and then Turkey
into an attack on Syria.
Lebanon's slap at the Syrian
Parliamentary delegation was the
first hint that an open break be-
tween Damascus and Beirut might'
be imminent.
The Lebanese government, has
been trying to avoid stepping on
any Syrian toes.
UIN Passes
The United Nations authorized the
spending of an additional 38h
million dollars to maintainits
Middle East Emergency Force
through 1958.
By a vote of 51-11 the 82-nation
General Assembly decided that the
sum should be paid on the basis
of the regular scale of UI assess-
ments. Nineteen nations abstained.
The Soviet bloc announced it
would not pay anything toward
maintenance of the deficit-ridden
force. Its assessed share would
amount to about 20 per cent of
the total.
Soviet Ambassador Arkady A.
Sobolev denounced the force as
illegal and said it does not guaran-
tee peace in the Middle East. N'
Rep. R. Carnahan (D-Mo.), a
member of the U.S. delegation,
told the Assembly there can be no
doubt that financial support of

Ron Shorr, '58, former admin-
istrative vice-president was elect-
ed executive vice-president; May-
nard Goldman, '59, former treas-
urer was elected administrative
vice-president; pnd Scott Chrys-
ler, '59BAd, was elected treasurer.
Shorr was the only candidate
to run against opposition. He com-
peted with Chrysler. Goldman ran\
unopposed as did Chrysler for
Collins noted that he hoped the
Council could do something in the
area of transferrable football tick-
ets and other aspects of the ath-
letic program.
Chrysler, in his campaign
speech, while running against
Shorr, noted "two interests" on
the Council. He did not see them
as affiliate - independent v i e w-
points, but rather as different
"thought approaches."
Shorr told the Council that SGC
members were expected to be pro-
gressive by an essentially con-
servative stugent body. ,
He noted that students want
to see disagreement with the ad-

Russia's satellite launchings are
only one payoff from their educa-
tional program, the Regents were
told yesterday.
Members of the recently ap-
pointed Scientific Advisory Com-
mittee attended the November
Regents meeting and warned that
the United States should. expect
further Soviet accomplishments.
"They will be of far greater,
importance, both militarily and
economically than the Sputniks,"
Prof. David M. Dennison, chair-
man of the physics department,
Cites.Nuclear Progress
Prof. H. R. Crane of the physics
department told the Regents that
the Russians are making consid-
erable progress in controlling the
release of nuclear energy. "If the
Russians succeed in harnessing
the hydrogen, they probably would
export power plants, to any back-
ward country they chose and thus
strengthen their ties," he warned.
Other members of the commit-
tee agreed that the Russians
would be more likely than the
West to consider the political ad-
vantages of such a power plant
and ignore its higher initial cost
when compared to conventional
sources of power.
Warns of Rocket
Prof. Crane also warned that
the Russians are ahead of the
United States in the field of nu-
clear physics research and that
they are working on a nuclear
powered rocket which "would be a
tremendous advance for the first
nation to perfect it."
Increased financial backing for
research and students in the area
of science was suggested by the
faculty members.
Urges Incentive
Graduate School Dean Ralph A.
Sawyer said it "wouldn't be very
difficult to provide the incentive
that would make the sciences
more attractive, He cited the
Legislature's support of driver ed-
ucation in Michigan's high schools
as an example of the state provid-
