(Daily Sports Editor)
Michigan's scoring attack reached
a white heat in 'the third period of
last night's hockey encounter with
Michigan Tech's Miners, and as a
consequence, the visitors sustained a
5-2 defeat in the sparsely-filled Coli-
seum. -
It was the first of a two-game set,
and the Wolverines' opening wedge
toward retention of the mythical state
championship, which they acquired
last year by beating the Houghton,
Mich, contingent thrice in four meet-
Roughly contested throughout, the
match was enlivened by a brief flurry
of fisticuffs late in the second period
when Tech's warm-tempered center,
George McCarthy, threw a meaning-
ful punch at apologetic Evie Doran,
who had just accidentally tapped Mc-
Carthy on the back of his noggin.
Score Is Knoted
At that juncture, the score was
knotted at 2-all, both squads count-
ing twice in a productive first period.
Michigan's blue line men, Capt. Bob
Simpson and Bucko Smith, had prov-
en lax in their tactics to permit the
aforesaid McCarthy to sift through
them on a solo flight and rifle one
past Goalie Spike James (10:30).
The Wolverines' defense stiffened
thereafter, but for another lapse later
in the same stanza when Bud Pekkala
took a pass from the busy Mr. Mc-
Carthy and sliced one in from a dif-
ficult angle.
Allen Tallies
Meanwhile, Smack Allen turned in
one of the neatest goals of the sea-
son. From a faceofV in front of the
nets, he cut a sharp puck past Goalie
Gus Gustafson, who stood by too sur-
prised to prost. A minute ,or so
later, with the Wolverine second line
serving, Les Hillberg and Evie Doran
collaborated for another marker. Do-
ran swept through Tech's defense and
laid a perfect pass on Hillberg's stick
for a wide open shot.
At times sloppy on offense, neither
sextet relaxed in their bruising work
on defense. Hillberg and Bill Ville-
nueve became over-enthusiastic in the
first period and were ousted for mu-
tual roughing. Pekkala also got the
referee's nod for tripping Allen. At
one stage in the second period both
Simpson and Smith were chilling in
the penalty box as the Miners made
a concentrated, though futile, assault
on Goalie James.

and Smith, Gib James, playing under
the handicap of a swollen ankle,

Petitions For Enforcement
Of Edicts; Decision May
Be DelayedFor Months;
WASHINGTON, Jan. 6.-- )-The'
Labor Relations Board took the first
step today in what promised to be a
prolonged court battle with the Ford
Motor Company.
The Board mailed to the Sixth Fed-
eral Circuit Court of Appeals at
Covington, Ky., a petition for an
order to enforce the Board's recent
decision against the Ford Company.i
In that decision the Board ordered1
the company to reinstate 29 employes
who, the Board said, had been dis-
charged because of union activity.
The Board also ordered the corn-
pany to stop discouraging member-
ship in the United Automobile Work-
ers and to refrain from a number
of other activities which the Board
called "unfair labor practices."
Circuit Court attaches in Coving-
ton said it probably would be several
months before the court could con-~

sider the Board's petition. Either the'
Board or the Ford Company may ap-
peal to the Supreme Court from the
Circuit Court's decision.

For, he added, in times such as
these it is "better" to work off ac-
cumulations of unsold stocks by cur-
tailing production, than by adjusting
prices downward in accordance with
reduced demand.
In addition, he made it evident
that he thought little good could come
from President Roosevelt's proposal
that industry and Government get
together periodically to gauge the fu-
ture and plan production.
"I don't think anyone in God's
world could have told me that sales

Naval Bomber,
Seven Airmen
Reported Lost
Warships, Aircraft Search
All Night But Discover
No SignOf Giant Plane
Officials Withhold
SAN DIEGO, Calif., Jan, 6.-VP)---
One of the Navy's long-range patrol
bombing planes vanished at sea last
night with seven men aboard, officers
disclosed today after a fruitless all-
night search.
Warships and fighting aircraft be-
gan their search shortly after the
plane dropped out of radio communi-
cation with other craft.
The hunt broadened today as
Capt. Alva D. Bernhard, chief of staff
for the aircraft scouting force, gave
out word that the craft was missing,
Secrecy enveloped details of the
plane's disappearance as well as
phases of the hunt. Captain Bern-
hard refused to say where the plane
was bound, or where it was when It
last communicated with other craft.
Names Of Crew
Bernhard likewise declined to name
the seven aboard, but the Navy De-
partment in Washington said the
craft was piloted by Lieut. Truman
Ernest Carpenter, with Aviation Ca-
det Philip O. Browning as co-pilot.
Carpenter is from El Paso, Texas, and
Passumpsic, Vt. Browning is a-na-
tive of Lees Summit, Mo.
Eristed men on board included:
Edgar Angling, aviation chief ma-
chinist mate, 37, 1012 Moran Ave.,
Norfolk, Va.
G. A. Mills, 22, radioman, third
class, Prescott, Mich.
C. C. Creech, 22, aviation machinist
mate, third class, Richland, N.Y.
William Erbe, 52, aviation chief
machinist mate, San Diego, Calif.
Joe D. Adair, 21, radioman, third
class, Coruttiersville, Mo.
Captain Bernhard said the plaie
was "capable of landing in any kind
of a sea" and expressed belief it would
be found.
Twin Motored Craft
Presumably the plane's last known
position was about 200 miles north-
west of here. It was said the search
had begun in that area. Eleven bat-
tleships, and unannounced number of
destroyers and target tenders were
reported to be somewhere near the
area where the patrol cruiser van-
ished. Two fast cruisers, the Chester
and the San Francisco, left San Pe-
dro harbor this afternoon to join the

Recently squadrons of 12 to 14 have

Zone, 3,080 miles from here, and to

A group of 18 such planes is ten-
tatively scheduled to leave here Jan.
19 for Honolulu to reinforce the large
concentration of fighting aircraft al-
ready stationed in the islands.

Another political consideration
which might influence the President

Sen. Bertrand Wheeler of Montana
has been mentioned as a possibility
for that reason. He is also from the
