Wolverines Lead Visitors

Until Drive Starts
Score Three Times
In Final Minutes
(Daily sports Editor)
Featuring a wild, wide-open scoring
sortie in the third peiiod, Minnesota's
rambunctious hockey team last night
defeated Michigan, 4-3, in the first of
a two-game title series before a vocif-
erous crowd which jammed the Coli-
seum to capacity.
Larry Armstrong's undaunted
Norsemen trailed the Wolverines, 3-1,
with seven minutes of the final frame
gone. But in the next eight minutes,
slammed home three goals to win the
match and give themselves a 2 to 1
edge in the four-game set which cul-
minates Saturday night.
Crowd Is Pleased
It was a bruising combat, with some
of the most vicious body-checking
seen here this season. Attracted by
the presence of colorful John Mari-
ucci, the widely-publicized Gopher de-
fenseman, noted for his hockey havoc,
the crowd revealed immense pleasure
as Michigan's blue line patrol fre-;
quently destroyed his equilibrium and.
jarred his sensibilities.
While Bit't Smith and Capt. Bob
Simpson rendered Mariucci's tactics!
ineffective most of the evening, they
neglected their chores in the last pe-
riod to permit Minnesota's concen-
trated assault upon Goalie Spike
James. And in each of those rallying
scores, Co-Capt. Loane Randall pro-
vided an assist.
Edwin "Smack" Allen, Michigan's
courageous center, was severely han-
dicapped by a football helmet which
he was forced to wear to protect a
nasty head injury. Yet, the redhead-
ed sophomore dismissed from mind
the gash which required nineteen
stitches and performed with his usual
crashing abandon, Teaming with Gib
James, a skating gazelle last night,
Smack negotiated a goal in the third
period, with only 44 seconds elapsed.
Defensemen Subdue Michigan
The third member of,Michigan's en-
durable first line, Johnny Fabello,
was an alert puck hawker, and only
a couple of remarkable saves by Min-
nesota's rookie goalie, PeeWee Pet-
rich, prevented modest John from
scoring more than one goal.
But it was the Gopher defensemen
who subdued Michigan's offense. Ad-
vancing past the blue line was a
tough chore with Dick Kroll, Bill
Bredesen and Mariucci discouraging
Wolverine forwards with insinuating
The chronology of goals:
Michigan: Cooke skated past center
ice and well outside the blue line,
blasted the bootheel past Petrich, who
never did see it.
Minnesota: With both Alln and
Smith in the penalty box, Mariucci, on
a power play, jockeyed the puck into
position just inside the blue stripe,

Battle lines were drawn tonight for an
intensive struggle between the Amer-

Months-long strife was pointed to-

Chamberlain Vote Of Confidence
Branded Misleading By Pollock

Opposition To His Policy
Is Greater Than Figures1
Lead World To Believe1
A huge majority in Parliament and
not the overwhelming support of Eng-
lish public opinion stands behind the
vote of confidence in Prime Ministerf
Neville Chamberlain's foreign policy
of recociliation with Italy and Ger-
many, Prof. James K. Pollock of the
political sciencedepartment declared
Explaining that the British admin-
istration has a majority of 432 votes
out of a total of 615 in the House of
Commons, Professor Pollock pointed'
out that his foreign policy was upheld
in the motion of censure Wednesday
by a vote of only 330 to 168. This
means that 15 of the opposition and
over 100 of the administration sup-
porters did not vote at all.
"The pertinent question is, where
were the .100?" Professor Pollock de-
clared. "They knew that Chamberlain
was not possibly going to be outvoted
in view of his tremendous majority in
Parliament, but they were not en-
thuusiastically behind him or they
would have voted. When as many as
100 fail to support their chief, it is
some kind of an indication that his
ideas aren't very popular."
This Conservative party majority
of 432 in Parliament is utterly misrep-
resentative of British public opinion
in itself, Professor Pollock said. It
was set up in the 1935 elections, being
much greater than the actual vote for
the party. The result left the other

Glass led the fight for economy al-'
though he told the Senate when he
asked for a vote:
"We shall not be greatly surprised,
or greatly disappointed, if the com-
mittee is overriden in this instance."
Glass aimed a few pointed re-
marks at the board's personnel, de-
dlaring that "some of us did not want

It remained for Senator Burke,
(Dem., Neb.), however, to voice se-
vere criticism of the group which ad-
ministers \the National Labor Rela-
tions Act. It was Burke who charged
that the board's operations had been
a "national disgrace."

with so few seats that they do not
have enough strength to sustain op-
position to the government beyond
the point of raising a fuss in Parlia-
ment and questions such as the one
at present are smothered by the Con-

Thus while Chamberlain represents
a majority of public opinion in Eng-
land, he does not represent an over-
whelming majority, as has been
claimed, Professor Pollock stated, and
the vote on his measure indicates
more opposition than is apparent in
the figures. This is especially true
because of the fact that the Con-
servative party was elected on a plat-
form which called for support of the
League of Nations, which Chamber-
lain has recently denounced in de-

3-Hour Blaze
Razes Local
Liquor Store
$50,000 Damage Caused
By Fire As All Available
Firemen Are Called Out
Many Neighboring
'Buildings Damaged
Fed by alcohol from thousands of
liquor bottles, fire destroyed the state
liquor store at 113 W. Huron St.
yesterday morning, causing damage
estimated at $50,000.
Five explosions took place during
the blaze. Several firemen were cut by
flying glass.
All available fire-fighting equip-
ment and manpower in the city was
mobilized by Fire Chief Charles J.
Andrews in combating the three-hour
blaze which is believed to have been
started by smouldering coals in 'a
pile of ashes near the basement fur-
First discovered by employes of
Miller's barber shop at 9 a.m., the fire
sent billowing clouds of smoke
throughout the Huron-Main St.
business district. Hundreds of spec-
tators were forced to flee frequently
by the smoke, which at times even
forced firemen to draw back.
The store had a stock of 35,000
liquor bottles valued at between $40,-
000 and $50,000, according to Der-
wood Prochnow, manager.
A fire insurance adjuster estimat-
ed that approximately $15,000 dam-
age was done to the building, which
is owned by Titus Hutzel. Extensive
damage was done to Goodyear and
Co.'s warehouse above the liquor
store. Suspension of business was
necessary at both Davenport's res-
taurant, a favorite student rendezvous
and Miller's barbershop, which ad-
join the destroyed store. Both suf-
fered from smoke.
Whenthe fire was first discovered
it was believed it could be easily ex-
tinguished. Liquor and pure alcohol
fed it, however, and it was only after
a hard battle that firemen had it
under control by noon. At 11 a.m. the
first floor caved in, but in another
hour firemen had the upper hand.
When the fire was finally extin-
guished the basement was half-filled
with water.

Split As- Austria

Nazis See Franco-Russian


Its Independence Of Hitler

Schuschnigg Asserts Hitler
Promised Independence
In Accord With Austria
Flouts Nazi Efforts
To Hitlerize Austria
VIENNA, Feb. 24.-(IP)-Chancel-
lor Kurt Schuschnigg tonight dedi-
cated himself to a relentless fight to
p r e s e r v e Austrian independence
which he said Germany unmistakab-
ly had guaranteed.
Addressing the Diet, he defiantly
proclaimed "Austria must remain
Austria" and declared that since il-
legal political activity in the nation
was finished for all time the Aus-
trian mission now was to develop
her own independent life.
Austria's independence, he de-
clared as both Austrians and Ger-
mans listened to an international
broadcast of his speech, was guaran-
teed by Chancellor Adolf Hitler of
Germany, by the Austro-German
friendship accord of July 11, 1936,
and the agreement which he and
Hitler reached Feb. 12 in their Berch-
tesgaden conference.
'Milestone Toward Peace'
Schuschnigg called the agreement
with Hitler a "milestone toward
peace" and an assurance Austria
may preserve her sovereignty.
He recited industrial and commer-
cial statistics to establish that Aus-
tria was capable of independence and
able, with the cooperation of 3,000,-
000 members of the fatherland front,
to perpetuate the Christian authori-
tarian form of state.
Vienna police and members of the
Fatherland front scattered several
groups of Communists and Nazis in

sions using the flat sides of their

Police Flash Sabres
"For us it is not a question of
National Socialism or Socialism, but
patriotism," Schuschnigg shouted to
the Diet he used as a sounding board
to tell the world Austria still was on
the European map as a free nation.
Demonstrations organized by the
Fatherland Front, Austria's only legal
party, completely overshadowed any
outbursts which the Nazis might have
When several hundred Nazis start-
ed singing their marching song-the
Horst Wessel-in front of the Opera,
mounted police flashed their sabres-
but did not use them.
"The government stands firmly be-
hind the 1934 Constitution and is
directing all its efforts toward Au-
stria's freedom and independence,"
Schuschnigg said, his voice trembling
with emotion.
"The Constitution recognizes no
parties and no party state."

Acknowledging that State had con-

out that strong Christian trends are
on the increase and that the ulti-

Admitting that the conflict is in-
evitable, Dr. Moehlman traced the
history of the struggle between the
church and the state from the Ro-

church and to the present day, %.-
plaining the formation of totalitarian

to follow. The new control was the

church of the medieval age has been
replaced by the totalitarian state of
the 20th century.
"It would seem," he concluded,
"that the state has conquered and
that its position is strongly fortified
by the infinite demands of the com-
plicated modern environment."
In his talk at a faculty noon lun-
cheon yesterday, Dr. Moehlman urgd
a revision in the theological curricu-
luum to bridge the gap between or-
iginal New Testament meanings and

The much desired companionship
of a wooden model of the noble Babe
will be awarded to the school whose

The champion liar will be deter-

BERLIN, Feb. 24.-(P)--An even
bigger stake than domination of
Czechoslovakia-the possibility of

horizon tonight as Fuehrer Adolf
Hitler's followers celebrated the 18th
anniversary of the Nazi party.
Pointing their editorials at the

Chautemps Is Confident
PARIS, Feb. 24-(A)--Premier Ca-
mille Chautemps, with his own gov-
ernment strengthened by the refusal
of political leaders to form a National
Union cabinet, turned tonight to-
ward the British plan of negotiating
with Italy.
Foreign Minister Yvon Delbos had
hinted earlier this week that France
might adopt a policy parallel to
British Prime Minister Neville Cham-
berlain's as a possible solution to the
Continental isolation in which that
diplomacy has left her.
Chautemps, however, apparently
had sought to strengthen his own
hand before trying such a course.
Parliamentary leaders pictured him
now as confident of his strength and
considering overtures to Italy.
Nazis Follow Italy
LONDON, Feb. 24.-(A)-Germany
was reported reliably tonight to have
followed Italy in acceptance of Great
Britain's plans for the withdrawal of

Agreement on this issue has been

Minister Neville Chambeilain for
friendship talks between Great Brit-
ain and Italy.
With Italy's acceptance in prin-
ciple already indicated, German
agreement would place Reichsfuehrer
