SAVINGS BONO TO BE GIVEN AWAY EVERY DAY AT STERUNGI REGENTS (Continued from Page 1) back next year if he wants to stay. But by setting up a fact-finding committee of sit members — Including three football enthusiasts — to make n broad review of school athletic policies, the board el regents apparently left open the door for n reopening of the Armstrong case. Directors of the graduate letterman M Club scheduled a meeting for this afternoon to discuss the action. It appeared virtually certain there would be rumblings by some against failure o' the thool's policy - making body to take action against Armstrong or Warmath. M Club In Forefront The M Club had been in the 'orefront of a campaign • during he past month to replace either the athletic director or the coach or both in an effort to restore Go- jher football to its former stature. Minnesota won only one game and lost eight this year for It* worst season on record. Despite Mori-ill's declaration that Warmath and Armstrong presumably would be back next year, Lester Malkerson of Minneapolis, orie of the regents, said afterward 'the issue is not closed." Malkerson said he went along with other regents in keeping the status quo "only for academic reasons." "If it were a straight matter of getting a new athletic director now I would vote for it," he said. One other of the nine regents present, Richard Griggs of Duluth, wanted an immediate change in the Minnesota athletic department and football leadership. But his motion for ouster for Armstrong and Warmath failed to get a second. In a statement read to a news conference after the session, Morrill acknowledged that the 1958 Gopher season had been disappointing to the school and the state. Respect Contracts '"But," he said, "athletic enter- talnment ... is not the primary purpose of the institution or the Justification of its existence. Nor can its athletic program be conducted with the 'win or else philosophy which is perfectly appropriate to professional athletics The athletic director holds academic tenure as a professor and the football coach holds a contract, both of which the. university fully intends and is bound to respect." Morrill said the university could not in conscience break Wai-math's contract—which has three years to run—or undermine Armstrong's rights of tenure. Yet he admitted "there is no aspect of the university program which conceivably cannot be strengthened and improved." He took note of criticism against the athletic department's public relations policies, the recruiting program, the Western Conference relationships and other activities or inactivities. He said some of this criticism had been unfair or prejudiced but that some had been sincere and informed. The committee set up by Morrill and the regents appeared to be aimed at appeasing to some degree demands by alumni that something be done about improving the school's athletic policies. Morrill said it would undoubtedly "find things to commend and criticize constructively" in its appraisal of the athletic department. But, he added, it would not have ihe right to hire or fire anybody. Malkerson said he was sure the .•egents would be strongly guided by whatever recommendations this committee makes "and it might very possibly recommend a new athletic director." Three members of the committee are J. D. Hotzermann, Alumni Assn. president; Lee Johnson, M Club president; and Louis Gross, chairman of the university stadium committee. All are believed to be in favor of a change in athletic department personnel. The other members are Prof Max SchuJte, chairman of the University Senate Committee on Intercollegiate Athletics; Thomas Hagenstadt of the All-University Congress commission on athletics; and Dean Walter Cook of the college of education. HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) - Arkansas Gov. Orval E. Faubus speaks Here tonight amidst a controversy boiling between two Houston groups. The Houston Assn. of Schools, active in school board pol : itics, said his scheduled speech in MUTUAL CONGRATULATIONS — Ed Lubanskl of Detroit and Charlotte Grubic of Steelton, Pa., congratulate one another on winning the men's and wo- men's divisions of the second annual World invitational bowling tournament at Chicago Friday night.

Knees Drawn Up The monkey wore a helmet of molded electrical potting compound over chamois. It was strapped face up in the cylinder, with its knees drawn up. This position provides the best resistance to the strains imposed by gravity as a missile blasts off. Extending from the helmet were nylon straps tied to rubber posts embedded in the rubber bed to which the monkey was strapped. Thermometers were placed under its armpits to record body temperatures. Over its chest was a pad of foam rubber containing a microphone to listen to the heart beats. A wire mesh fastened over the helmet was hooked to an instrument that detected the sound of breathing of the monkey. The tiny one-pound monkey was put into his space riding chamber about five hours Before blast off at 4 a.m. EST. 10 Inches Long The compartment measured 10 inches in length, 13% in width and was 434 inches deep at one end, and 7 inches deep at the other end. This provided about 789 cubic inches of space for the animal and the recording equipment. The chamber was fastened to the inside of the nose cone, about one inch from the shell. It was located at the base of the cone to provide easy access during the pre-firing time. The box, the instruments and the monkey had a combined weight of 29.5 pounds. It was insulated with foil and fiberglass for protection against rapid temperature changes. Survive Reentry "A monkey was selected for the experiment in an attempt to use an animal high in the phylogenetic (evolutionary) scale which might, as predicted from ground testing, survive reentry," the Defense Department said. "The very sensitive squirrel monkey proved to be an animal approximating the ecological variations presupposed for manned space flight and resembling man anatomically and physiologically. "Purposes of the experiment were to prove the basic requirements for survival and consciousness in the primate family, of which man is a member, during rocket travel; to determine the physiological variants and response in the primate to stress factors similar to those involved in escape from earth's gravity; and to establish a basis for further experimental studies." CANON DIES CAPETOWN, South Africa (AP) — Anglican Canon Lancelot Liddell, rector of suburban Plym- stead for 38 years, died Friday. He was 89.

Remained Hidden The officers, fearing they might hit one of the family if they opened fire, remained hidden. The gunmen ordered Marchegiani's wife and daughter to lie on a bed. "I'd hate to shoot your heads off," one said. At that moment, one of the two gunmen remaining downstairs spotted detective Sgt. Leonard Kragh crouching behind living room furniture. He fired at Kragh Dash for Door As Kragh and the other officers began shooting, all four gunmen dashed for the door. Police bul lets dropped three of them. The fourth, an unidentified Negro escaped. The dead hoodlum was identified as Raleigh Morton, a Negro, of Washington. The injured were identifed at Providence Hospital as Gene C. Smawley, 28, and Charles L. Cross, 38, both white. They were charged with assault with intent to rob and kill. Police said Cross was the gunman whose garb resembled that os a priest. None of the police were injured. ACTOR'S MOTHER DIES ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Mrs. Bryna Demsky, 76, mother of actor Kirk Douglas, died of a heart attack Friday in Albany Hospital. Senate Leader Gives Opinion on Integration SAN ANOEtO, Tex. (APwSen- ite Majority > Leader Lyndon B. bhnson (D-Tex) told questioning ollege students here Friday that he is against "forced Integration." "But," the senator added, "I wish the hotheads on both sides would give us a chance to evolve a solution." He told San Angelo College students that he believed the Civil Rights Commission has subpoena powers. And although professing opposition to "forced integration," he added: "We're a little late in our section in recognizing that all men are created equal." . Sorry About Faubus Johnson made his remarks on he eve of a scheduled speech Sunday in Houston, Tex., by Oov. Oral Faubus of Arkansas. He said le was sorry Faubus mobilized the National Guard in Little Rock, but added: "I regret even more that the President of the United States mshed a button and sent in paratroops." Discusses CRC He discussed the Civil Rights Commission In connection with the refusal of election officials in some Alabama counties to produce their registration records for that federal agency. "I think without question the commission-has the authority (to subpoena the records), and I do think in time they (the Alabama officials) will recognize it," Johnson said. "I voted for the civil rights bill because I think everyone ought to have the right to vote, whether he's white or brown or black." Nationalists Voice Thanks for U. S. Aid TAIPEI, Formosa, (AP) —The Chinese Nationalist general staff has extended warm thanks for U.S support during the Quemoy crisis. The Nationalist chief of staff, Gen. "Tiger" Wang Shu-ming wrote thank-you letters to Vice Adm. Roland N. Smoot commander of U.S. forces on Formosa, and Maj. Gen Leander L. Doan, commander of U.S. Army forces on Formosa and chief of the U.S. Military Assistance Advisory Group. The letters were received at American headquarters here today. Meanwhile, the Communists resumed their every-other-d a y bombardment of the Quemoy islands. This was an odd day—the shooting day—and the Reds fired about 50 shells by noon, the Nationalists reported. Faubus to Speak In Texas Tonight the Music Hall "Is an apparent effort to make Houston a battle* ground in the Little Rock pattern." Final Date Set on Proposal to Drop 2 Trains ALBERT LEA, Minn. (AP) The Interstate Commerce Commission Is setting Jan. 12 as the final date for submission of briefs on discontinuance of two Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway passenger trains between Minneapolis and Des Molnes. An examiner fixed the date at conclusion'of a hearing in the case here Friday. Strong opposition against dropping the trains was voiced by res- dents of Waseca and New Richand, Minn., and Forest City, Iowa. Two manufacturers in the Iowa community, Robert Thurson and Conrad E. Frederickson, said *bx- jress service would suffer greatly f Trains 3 and 4 were discontinued. Richard Musenbrock, general counsel for the railroad, said it is losing 6,000 monthly on the trains. He said he thought that showing ample, under recent national legislation, to permit their discontinuance. The ICC is not expected to make a decision in the case until March, at the earliest. It referred to Faubua in * state- Better m ent as "a symbolic hero of the cross burners" and said Houston- lans should be fully aware of the "consequence! of the course of action he advocates." The group recognized his right to speak, however. Its members have included both whites and Negroes. Faubus was asked to speak as part of the annual observance of Bill of Rights Day by the Sons of the American Revolution. "Gov. Faubus was selected because he is not only the governor N of a sovereign state, but because he has been re-elected by an overwhelming majority, because of his courageous defense of states rights," .a statement from the group's arrangements committee said.
