TAKE EARLY LEAD
Badgers Held to Four
Goals by Wolves'
By Sheldon C. Fullerton
Paced. once again by N4orm Dan-
iels, who dropped 13 points more
thrqugh the meshes, Michigan's
basketball team r scored its second
victory of the season over Wiscon-
sin by a 33-13 count, last night at
Yost Field House. The game was
one of the ,slowest and most. unin-
teresting that has been held on the
local. court this season, with the
Badgers, hard hit by ineligibility,
proving no opposition at all for the
more experienced Wolverines.
Badger Defense Weak.
While Michigan's tight defense
Was limiting the Cardinals to only
four field goals, all of them coming
in the final period, the Badger
guards were having a hard time in
holding the Maize and Blue scorers
from dropping in more points, the
Wolverine leader especially bother-
ing them with his numerous tries
at under-the-basket shots. If Dan-
iels had dropped in only half of the
shots he tried there would be no
question now as to the man who!
would eventually pace the Confer-
ence in scoring at the end of the
season, bult in spite of the fact that
he caged 13 points, many of his at-
tempts rolled around the hoop and
Coach "Cappy' Cappon sent 11
men into the game before the final
whistle blew, but the hapless Badg-
ers were powerless to stop any com-
bination that Michigan placed on
the floor. Captain Mary Steen,
playing at forward, was the out-
standing man for Wisconsin, the
whistle several times robbing him
of brilliant baskets from out past'
the foul circle.
Lead at Half Time.
Michigan jumped into the lead
shortly after the start and were
never threatened afterwards. At
half-time the Maize and Blue had
piled up a 17-5 lead, which was in-'
creased to 22-9 shortly after the
start of the second half. From that'
time on the Wolverine subs enter-
ed the game, but had no more
trouble than Michigan's regulars .
had had previously.
CHINESE DEFENDERS FLASH 'COLD STEEL'
With bayonets drawn Ahese Chinese defenders are shown advancing on the Japanese lines after leav-
ing their dugouts in the Chapei district of Shanghai. They are members of the now famous nineteenth
route army, who have successfully turned back many Japanese attacks. Note the straw hats attached to
their backs. They are used to keep off the snow in winter and affor4i protection from the sun in summer.

in the Big Ten by swamping Illi-

Boilermakers had things their own
way throughout the game.
The victory gave Purdue nine
victories against one defeat with

Illinois away from the basket.

TActual Experience to Replace
Training Period; Expect
50 to Report.
.. Freshmen tryouts for The Mich-
igan Daily will assemble in the staffl
room at 3 o'clock, Tuesday after-
noon, March 8, for preliminary in-
struction and filing of names with
David M. Nichol, '32, news editor.
More than 50 underclassmen are
expected to try out for the editor-
ial staff, while many more will
probably be added to the roll by the
end of the week, Work bn the Daily
will begin at once, the preliminary
training period being used to aug-
ment rather than precede actual
,journalistic experience this year.
Eligibility for freshmen who wish
to try out for The Daily on March 8
consists of a record of no mark low-
er than C and one above C. Soph-
omores, and other underclassmen
wishing to try out on Tuesday, will
have an equal chance with second
semester freshmen, and positions
on the editorial staff are now open
for such prospects. Previous news-
paper experience, while a great as-
set, is by no means a prerequisite.
Several incentives for Daily work
ahve been indicated by members of
the upper staff during the first se-
mester at freshman gatherings.
High dampus -standing, honorary
recognition in campus societies, ac-
tual experience on a daily newspa-
per, and some financial return are
among the facts which have been
stressed. The small number of re-
porters now on the staff gives this
year's freshman an additional op-
portunity to gain a place on the

United States, Other
in New Peace Move
By The Associated Press.
A proposal for truce at Shanghai and an international confer-
ence to arrange ai final settlement of the Sino-Japanese conflict was
accepted yesterday by the representatives of Japan and China on
the League of Nations Council.
The United States is participating in this new move for peace,
as are Great britain, France and Italy. All four have important in-
In hopeful tones both the Chinese and Japanese representa-
tives at Geneva gave their support to the peace plan and promised
to recommend immediate acceptance to their governments.
Both Geneva and Shanghai were optimistic over peace-but
that made no difference to the men in the battle lines. This morn-
ing Chinese infantry men swept across Chapei and broke the Jap-
anese defenses in a surprise attack.
The Japanese called fot help from their big guns, reformed and
put on a counter attack i which they recovered most of the lost
Warfare May be Carried Inland.
Japan gave formal .warning to the Chinese mayor of Shanghai
that if Chinese reinforcements were brought in the warfare would
be carried inland 50 miles by the Japanese bombing planes. Thqi
mayor was informed that both the Shanghai-Nanking and the
Shanghai-Hangkow railway would be bombarded and that all mili-
tary trains would be destroyed.
The Tokyo foreign office was informed that 100,000"Soviet Rus-
sian troops had been massed in the vicinity of Vladivostok in prep-
aration for what is considered in Russia to be an inevitable conflict
with Japan. The Japanese consul at Vladivostok said that an iodine
factory had been converted for the manufacture of pgison gas.
The Japanese government at Nanking decided to launch a puni-
tive expedition against the new Manchurian-Mongolian state
established under Japanese auspices, and to resumediplomatic rela-
tions with the Soviet government which were broken off in 1929.
Enumerate Bases for Conference.
The peace proposal was phrased thus:-
"A conference. would be set up immediately at Shanghaicoem-
posed of representatives of the governments of China and Japan,
together with the representatives of the interested great powers, for
the purpose of bringing about a final conclusion of the fighting and
restoration of peaceful conditions in the Shanghai area. ,
"This conference 'would be undertaken on the basis that:
1. Japan has no political or territorial designs and no intention
of establishing a Japanese settlement at Shanghai or otherwise ad-
vancing the exclusive interests of the Japanese ; and
2. China enters the conference on the basis that the safety and
integrity of the international and French settlements must be pre-
servedundermarrangements which will secure those areas and their
residents from danger; and
3. The meeting of this conference is, of course, subject to mak-
ing local arrangements for the cessation of hostilities. The council
trusts that this will be brought about very speedily.
"It is proposed that. the military, naval and civilian authorities
of the principal powers represented at Shanghai will give all, nossible
assistance in consolidating these arrangements."

WASHINGTON, Feb. 29- (P)--
Virtually the entire American navy
is being mobilized in the Pacific.
Under orders disclosed today, ten
warships will pass through the
Panama Canal to join the fleets
which soon will hold maneuvers
in defense of the Pacific coast. This
will bring to 202 the fighting ships
flying the American flag west of
the Canal. The unexpected move
attracted widespread attention.
Asked if there was any relation,
between the sudden orders anct the
Far Eastern' situation, Navy offi-
cials replied their latest reports
showed an easing of tension in the
Orient, and emphasized a statement
by Admiral Pratt, chief of naval
operations, that a plan for such a
ship movement had been "under
consideration since the maneuvers
were first announced.
The vessels that will be concen-
trated in the Pacific are made up
of 12 battleships, 17 cruisers, 33 sub-
marines, :81 destroyers, three air-
craft carriers and 56 auxiliaries.
