igated, according to the Great Lakes
Bulletin, official newspaper of t he

Virgil Cleary, 15, a sophomore in

sign an age certificate- permitting his
enlistment, James Everett Johnson of
Nashville, Tenn., was discovered by
naval officials to be only 17.
"I'd like to stay in, but Ma wants
me to speak English for her," said
Able Katz, a stubby 14-year-old rookie
whose parents have requested his dis-
charge. Abie ran away from home
and enlisted at Cincinnati under the

OHIO STATE FIVE
BY SCORE 38-2
CONTEST FULL OF FOULS; TIE
BROKEN FOR SIXTH PLACE
IN BIG TEN
BUCKEYE STATE TERM
Karpus, NeClintock and Williams
Play ,Stellar game; 0. S. U.
Take All Tips-Off
With a gradual increase in the
quality of basketball played, the
Michigan Varsity last night, walked
away from the Ohio State five by a
score of 38-20.
Displaying better basketball than
at any time this season, and with per-
fect working of the five man defense,
the Maize and Blue triumphed over
the Buckeyes, by keeping the ball al-
most continually in their own hands.
Despite the fact that the contest
was not as fast as others seen on the
floor, numerous fouls were called on
both sides. Weltner, guard on thd
visiting team, was forced out of the
contest when four personals were
called on him in rapid succession,
during the second half. McDonald,
the Scarlet center, managed to take
the tip off, in almost every case, but
Michigan would not allow Ohio to
hold te ball long.
Karpus of the Michigan five
played a brilliant game during the
second half, dribbling his way to the
basket for two pretty goals. McClin-
tock, at center 'for the Wolverines,
managed to steal the ball from Mc-
Donald's own tip off, and with sensa-
tional ability, carried the ball to the
basket for two points.
Ohio's failing camein their inabil-
ity to move the ball rapidly enough
to keep it away from the Wolverine
five. Coach Mitchell's men guarded
the visitors exceptionally well, yet
they were able to slip in 20 points,
six of which were made on fouls.
Ohio Sends on Three Subs
During the second half, the Scar-
let players sent three new men into
the contest, placing practically a new
team against the Varsity. Werthwein,
who substituted for McDonald, amaz-
ed the Michigan fans with his accur-
ate basket shooting, yet it could not
avercome the playing of the Wolver-
A total of 26 fouls were called, eight
of which were charged against Ohio
State as personals, while the Wol-
verines registered nine. Holding
proved the principal cause for them.
Neither squad seemed able to keep
their hands off the opposing mei.
Michigan's substitutions did not
come until the last few minutes of the
second half, when Coach Mitchell sent
Bornstein, Wilson, and Emory into
the game. Bornstein registered one
pretty field goal, while the other tv/o
men were not in the contest long
enough to make their work count
Karpus, the brilliant Maize and
Blue forward, took the largest count
in scoring, with 13 points to his cred-
it. Francis, of the visiting five, led
their bunch with 10 points.
Breaks Tie Standing
The contest breaks the Michigan-
Ohio State tie for the sixth place in
the Conference standing, and gives it
to Michigan. It also evens Michigan's
old rivalry with the Buckeye state
team, the latter having taken the long
end of the figure in last year's con-

Lieut. Paul K. Eaton, '19, who en-

in German prison camps after his,
capture in the spring of this last
year, was given a tremendous wel-

In an observation party of nine
American-manned planes in France
he became separated by the attacking
Hun aviators. The enemy fire struck
and damaged his engine, and he was
forced to land behind the German
lines. Wounded by shell fire, he re-
mained in a shell crater until discov-
ered by a searching party.
Then followed seven months of
prison life, experiences that Lieuten-
ant Eaton says little about because
of the thoughts of suffering and pri-
vation that the telling suggest. Food
and medical care were entirely inade-
quate to the needs of a soldier in
good health, and, weakened by the
wound, he would have never seen the
home folks but for the aid and food
obtained from a fellow prisoner in the
His return to Jackson followed a
period of convalescence in a New

pears in excellent health, the effects
