Shot In Closing Minutes
For 2 7-26 Victory
3,500 Fans Witness
Thrillng Struggle
Wolverines Miss Many Free
Throws; Are Weak On
A twisting, one-handed shot from
under the'basket made by Dick Joslin
in the last two minutes of play gave
Michigan's basketball team its second
victory of the current season in the
game with Michigan State Normal
last night at Yost Field House. The
final score was 27 to 26.
Thirty-five hundred fans saw the
Wolverines come from behind in the
last five minutes to knot the count
at 25-all, slip behind again when
Rukamp scored on a free throw, and
finally came through with the de-
ciding basket.
Off To Good Start
Michigan started fast running up
a 12-4 lead midway in the first pe-
riod against a Normal team that
showed signs of nervousness in its
first game of the season. The Teachers
fought back doggedly in the last ten
minutes of the first half and suc-
ceeded in tying the score, 17 to 17
on a basket by James Dirkse, as
the period ended.
The Ypsi team continued its rally,
into the secondperiod and the Wol-
verines found themselves six points
behind before they started the win-I
ning spurt. Dirkse was the high point
man for both teams, with six baskets
and two free throws for a total of
14 points.
Joslin Shows Improvment
Dick Joslin, who showed a great
deal more ability in handling him-
self than he did last year, led Mich-
igan's scorers with three baskets and
three-free-throws for nine points.
Captain Al Plummer, high scorer
against Calvin last week, was runner-j
up with three goals from the floor.
John Jablonski was playing heads-
up ball and contributed a fine floor
game while John Gee was practically
useless except in getting the tip-off,
from Captain Glen Haidt. His ob-
viously unintentional foul on RukampI
in the closing minutes almost gave:
Normal the game. Joslin is a muchj
smoother player than a year ago and
proved effective under the basket.
The Wolverines missed a lot of free
throws and showed laxity in following#

Final Report States Illness
Of Nurses Was Caused
By Germ In Food
Chicken salad served at the Uni-
versity Hospital on Oct. 28 contained
a germ known as "hemolytic Staphy-
lococcus aureus" and caused the wide-
spread acute-indigestion illness which
attacked nurses and internes after the
night meal of that date, it was stated
today in a final report prepared by the
bacteriological laboratory and issued
yesterday by Dr. Harley A. Haynes,
director of the hospital.
Organism In Salad
The report states that the organism
apparently was present in the chicken'
salad. "It is believed that the salad
had not been sufficiently chilled in
the ice box during the several steps
in its preparation, giving the bacteria
a chance to gain a start," the hospital
report stated.
The germ which caused the food
poisoning is of a small, cluster type
and is destructive to certain elements
in the blood, it was explained. The
outstanding features of food poison-I
ing by this germ are rapidity of on-
set of nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
usually in about three hours after
eating, and a subsequent complete
recovery from these symptoms.
Cause Of Eruptions
Staphylococci are frequently as-
sociated in minor skin eruptions,
such as pimples, boils and the more
serious carbuncle. It is also to be
found many times in dangerous dis-
eases. the report stated.
This is the first outbreak of food
poisoning that has occurred at the
University Hospital.

France Supports Jugoslavia,
GENEVA, Dec. 8 -(P)- Revision of
post-war treaties emerged today as
the broad, danger fraught question
facing Europe's statesmen, and
France took her place squarely beside
the Little Entente for preservation
of the territorial status quo.
Italy, meanwhile, aligned herself
with her friend and ally, Hungary,
in advocating equitable revision of
the peace treaty as the best means
of conserving the peace of Europe.
As four of Europe's big powers-
England, France, Italy and Russia-

ly "France stands beside Jugo-Slavia"
in this grave conflict and repeated his

Michigan's hockey team sustained
its first loss of the current season last
night, at the hands of the aggressive,
fast-skating Londlon A.C. in the Coli-
seum, 3 to 1. Co-Captain Johnny
Sherf scored the lone goal for the
Wolverines on a successful poke check,
which left him in the clear for a front'
center shot at the net.
The victory was the seventh of the
season for the Green and White team
from London, Ont., which is leading
the Intermediate Ontario Hockey As-:
sociation at present, and Coach Cecil
Hill's forward line was without a
doubt superior to the Wolverine line
last night. Michigan perhaps was out-
played as much because it was out-
substituted as for any other reason.
Have More Spares
Hill had two teams of approximately:
the same strength, and the pace at
which these teams kept the game was
too hot for the Wolverines.
Johnny Sherf was well covered
especially by Mills, right wing for the
Londoners who skated about as fast
as the Calumet flash and constantly
mussed up his dashes down the ice
with a back check. But despite this
fact Sherf still seemed to be the best
on the ice and would have scored
oftener if it had not been for the good
goal tending of barrel-like Goalie!

Undefeated So Far
Thus far this semester, the Varsity

its preparatory debates. Mr. Mc-

debates this week "will show whether
that means anything or not."
