Wolverines' Smooth FipS
Control Game Until Final
Splurge By Bill Hapa
Free Throws Prove
Winning Margin
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Feb. 28.-(Spe-
cial to the Daily)-Illinois scored
eight points in the last two and a
half minutes of play to deadlock the
score against Michigan at 30 t6 30 in
the regular playing time and then
scored six points in the overtime to
win its fourth Big Ten basketball
game here tonight, 36 to 32.
The smooth passing Wolverines ap-
parcutly had the game well in hand
until Bill Hapac, Sophomore Illini
forward, went on a scoring rampage
late in the game and rejuvenated
the Illinois attack.
Field goals by Pick Dehner and
Tommy Nisbet in the overtime cou-
pled with free throws by Nisbet and
Hapac more than offset the lone
Michigan field goal made by Jim
Rae and gave Illinois its victory.
Capt. John Townsend and Illinois'
high scorer Pick Dehner switched
from offense to defense and held each
other to six points.
Important Free Throws
Free throws provided the deciding
factor in the game, both teams mak-
ing 14 field goals. Michigan made
four charity tosses and missed four
while the Illini made eight and missed
Michigan led by a healthy margin
throughout the first half until just
before half time when Illinois made
five poinm in thee minutes to come
up from 14 to 7 to 14 to 12, where
the half ended.
Bill Hapac of Illinois was the out-
standing player on the floor with 15
points to his credit. Rae was right
behind with 13 points. Tommy Nisbet
of Illinois scored seven points and
two players on each team scored six
points each, Dehner and Lasater for
Illinois and Fishman and Townsend
for Michigan.
Illinois' defense was lax in the first
half, but tightened in the second
and Michigan had more trouble get-

Fishman and Townsend connected

nois. Fishman and Thomas came

of the gaue. Rac's field goal brought
the score to 10 to 5, Mihigan. Fish-

charity toss to end the alf with
the Wolverines leading 14 to 12.

Michigan and Hapac and Lasater
countered for the Illim to put Mich-

200 At Progressive Club
Meeting Hear Debate
On Prevention Of War
Opposition Distrusts
Government Action
The collective security program to
"keep America out of war" by check-
ing fascist aggression through the
united economic action of democratic
nations was upheld by a two to one
vote of the Progressive Club last
night. Two hundred people listened
to the tense, heated debate that rever-
berated for two hours through the
crowded room in the Union.
The club unanimously voted to
,ommunicate to President Ruthven
the organization's "gratification at
'he progressive ideals and objectives
expressed in his New York speech of
Friday, Feb. 25."
The Oxford Oath
The proponents of the Oxford Oath,
which is an individual pledge not to
support any war or war preparations
of the United tSates government, ar-
gued that the masses of people can-
not rely on the interests of the "so-
called democratic governments" to
prevent war because of the capitalist-
imperialist structure of their econ-
omies. They urged the labor move-
ment and students to oppose fascism,
independently of their governments,
and stated that the factors which pro-
duce war can only be checked by
fundamental readjustments in the
world economy.
The collective security resolution
that was adopted provided for:
Collective Security Plan
1. Building of a nation-wide peace
movement to take economic action
against aggressor nations and to give
support to the victims of aggression
by boycotting Japanese goods, pre-
venting shipment of war materials
to Rebel Spain and sending material
aid to the Spanish and Chinese people.
2. Passage of federal legislation
amending the present Neutrality Act
so as to name aggressor nations, place
an embargo on goods going to such
nations and their allies and to main-
tain normal trade relations with the
victim nations-'"without having re-
sort to military sanctions"
3. Support of the anti-war strike
to mobilize American sentiment
against the brutality of war
4. Repudiation of the armament;
program of the United States because

people. Armed soldiers cruised on motorcycles,

Prof. William E. Dodd, formerlyj
of the University of Chicago and
more recently a "disillusioned diplo-
mat" returned from a turbulent
career as Ambassador to Germany,
told a large audience Sunday in
Jackson that the democracies of the
world must unite if Hitler and the
fascist axis are to be kept* from<
dominating the entire world.
German annexation of minor
neighboring territories, Professor
Dodd said, will cone slowly, as Hit-
ler does not want to antagonize the
pacifist democracies. He pointed
out that Germany itself does not
relish the thought of war at present,
for it is striving for economic self-
sufficiency by means of "peaceful
penetration" of the Danube valley.
In regard to the present Austrian
situation, the former Ambassador as-
serted that Premier Kurt Von
Schuschnigg is only momentarily

ifest destiny" by entering Czechoslo-
vakia too soon-that is, within the

crease the Fatherland's population to

As to Hitler's ascension in Ger-

caused by France's occupation of the
Rhine at a time when the Germans
could not meet their reparations pay-
ments. Before Hitler, by their very
forming of the republic the German
people manifested an inherent "love
for democracy," a love which they
still have, Professor Dodd said, con-
