Teruel, center of a month-long

the Government last night in the face
of unceasing artillery fire, Associated
Press reports from Insurgent sourcesJ
claimed last night.
American volunteer troops, which
Saturday were reported by Govern-

squadrons of Insurgent Moorish cav-
alry, were reported destroyed by the
Insurgents yesterday. The troops
were known as the Washington and,
Lincoln battalions.
Killed By Machine Guns
Although the Government made no
mention of heavy casualties, Insur-
gent advices said the Americans were
mowed down by machine-gun fire in
their desperate attack. A third unit
of the International Brigade-the
Walter Brigade-Insurgent sources
claimed, was "decimated."
An Insurgent communique said ob-
servers had reported no sign of life
in Terue since Gen. Miguel Aranda's
troops drove down the Alfambra Val-
ley, north of the city, making the
Provincial Capital untenable.
Loyalists Hold Two Positions
Government troops, however, were
still holding two strong positions toj

COLUMBUS O., Jan. 24.- Ohio
State's madcap long range runners al-
most boomed out defeat for the Mich-
igan quintet here tonight, but the
doughty Wolverines, led by an in-
spired Jake Townsend, weathered a
desperate last-half flurry to emerge
the victor, 29-26.
A blonde sharshooter named Dick
Boughner, rifling distant shots from
every angle, was the chief Buckeye
perpetrator. He peppered the bucket
with deadly accuracy and caused the
Varsity defense no end of anxiety with
his five field goals.
But Captain Jake, contemptuous of
his treacherous guard, Buckeye Capt.
Jim McDonald, got hotter than a
Bunsen burner during the last 10 min-
utes of the first period, to forge a lead
for the Wolverines which was never
relinquished, although it was bitterly
contested by the firing Buckeyes.
5,000 Fans Expectant
A coliseum gathering of some 5,000
fans got down-right expectant in the
last period when the Scarlet Scourge
(anywhere from behind the foul cir-
cle) began to assail the netted hoops.
John Smick, a substitute center
potted one, but Leo Beebe, playing an
amazingly agile game beneath the
backboard, matched it with a tip-in.
Dick Baker bagged a long one, Beebe
again offering an exchange. Then
the sharpshooters, Boughner and Jim
Hill, scored three longs in hurried
But Big Jake managed to wrestle a
set-up, and the issue was virtually
decided, although Boughner picked
up another deuce from the field.
Rae Hooks Basket
T h e Buckeye distance artists
threatened to rout Michigan at the
outset. After Jim Rae hooked a bas-
ket, and Dick Baker had evened the
count with a brace of free throws, the
local lads trained their guns and ex-
ploded. Boughner's unerring aim
scored two direct hits from the side.
Hull got a push in and the Buckeyes
were out front, 8-2.
Jake, after missing two fouls, both
called on McDonald, finally took a
pass from Fishman and snapped the
ball across his shoulder, almost with-
out looking, for a basket. Rae added
another, which, combined with a
Townsend charity toss, brought Mich-
jigan up to 8-7.

MIAMI, Fla., Jan. 24.-(A') -Presi-

He let it be known that it is far
from being a foregone conclusion that
the AFL Executive Council, which'
opened its mid-winter meeting to-
day, will oust the CIO unions.
"The Council is not meeting in a

belligerent frame of mind," he re-
marked in connection with the pos-
sibility that the United Mine Work-
ers, the Amalgamated Clothing Work-
ers and other groups whose charters !
are suspended might be expelled out-I
right and their fields opened for or-
ganization by AFL units.
"The Council is conscious of thet
state of mind of the masses of work-

said in an interview. "They want a
united movement. In my opinion the
Council will proceed judiciously andt
carefully in dealing with the situa-
tion between the AFL and the CIO."
Referring to the recent New York

The Foreign Office spokesman, who
made the denial, declined to mention

her ambassador to Tokyo to deter-

(Japan is not a signatory of the
