ordered displays of force from, one

gressive attitude of Italy.
The French Atlantic and Mediter-
ranean fleets were ordered to show

Pessimism in French official circles
over the outcome of the Rome talks
and, therefore, over the possibility

Drive Raises Concern
Concern lso was felt over the
swift drive of the Spanish Insurgents
toward Barcelona, carrying Italian
influence closer to France's southern
frontier, and over unconfirmed re-
ports of new Italian troop concentra-
tions in East Africa. One of the tar-
gets of Fascist territorial clamor has
been Dilbouti, France's strategic sea-
port on the Gulf of Aden.
The three submarines were ched-

Athena Advocates Of Celibacy
Best Alpha Nu In Verbal Battle

Connubial Bliss Is A Snare j eat when and where one pleases and

And A Delusion Protest
Disillusioned Debaters
Protesting that "most men marryl
some dizzy little blond who can't
cook," two members of Athena, wom-
en's' debating society, rose success-
fully to the defense of celibacy yes-
terday and won from three faculty
judges (two of whom are wed) an ad-
mission that "marriage is jumping
from the frying pan into the fire."
Ironically enough, the winners,
Faith Watkins, '39, and Mrs. David
Rank, '39, were presented with a lov-
ing cup apiece for their attacks on
connubial bliss.
Alpha Nu, men's speech organiza-
tion which was represented by bache-
lor David Laing, '39, and Fred Thom-
son, a former student who took unto
himself a wife last summer, found
itself unable to prove "that in the
words of Plato, you should marry
by all means-if she's a good wife
you'll be very happy and if she's a
bad one you'll be a philosopher."
Miss Watkins, lead-off speaker for
whe attacking forces, defined man's
primary needs as "food, clothing and
shelter" despite spirited challenges
from Alpha Nu
Declaring that in sirngle life one can

live in the place that best suits one,
Miss Watkins launched a vicious
tirade at married life.
"Why, when you're single you can
wear any color of nail polish you
wish," she declared. "You can even
take the color off the tips or remove
the tips themselves,"
"I don't see how any girl can sit
right down and think she'll enjoy
housework. Singleness is to be en-
joyed, relished and kept as the most
happy state in life."
Laing, the next speaker, suggested
that it would be a good thing "if Miss
Watkins and I whipped off to Tahiti"
where her theories could be tested.
"Bachelors usually give up average
quarters to take better halves," he
Mrs. Rank, who is a bride of several
months standing, declared that mar-
riage isn't all it's cracked up to be.
The reason she likes it, she declared,
is because she's an excepteion to the
"Making men buy clothes for their
wives is like making little boys sell
newspapers and then use the pennies
to buy castor oil," she said.
"Men have the cruel candor of
children," Mrs. Rank charged. "When
I came home with my hair done up

Neither Hunter nor Col. F. C. Har-
rington, Works Progress Administra-;
tor, offered any solution to the auto-
motive problem. Harrington said that
at the heighth of the recession the
Administration "was hard put to it"
to create work relief jobs.
"I know that at one time during
that period WPA employment in-
creased in Detroit from 10,000 to
100,000," Hunter said. "It is also true
that later in 1938 private employ-
ment picked up in the automobile in-
dustry in Michigan just as promptly
and there has been a drop of 58,000
in WPA employment in Michigan in
the last four months."

The Varsity Band's first concert of

day, Jan. 22, in Hill Auditorium, spon-
sored by Michigan's fraternity men,
who will attend en masse, Gilbert
Phares, '39, ainounced yesterday.
"We're going to show you just
what the marching band can do,"
Phares said, "because the band that
will play Sunday will have no out-
siders in it. Even the soloists will come
from the ranks."
At a meeting of fraternity presi-
dents held Wednesday, it was de-
cided that the fraternities would
sponsor the concert to show their ap-
preciation for the work the band had
done at the Christmas party, the foot-
ball games, and the ice carnival, ac-
cording to Robert Reid, '39, president
ofthe Interfraternity Council. Fra-
ternity men will take an active part
in publicizing the concert, Reid said.
The program will include a march
written especially for the Band by

has written a majority of the marches

Sextet Whips

In Penalty-Studded Fray;
James Scores Shutout
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Jan. 14 ---
(Special to The Daily)-Michigan's
hockey team marched to its fourth
victory in six starts this year by hand-
ing Illinois a 4-0' setback here to-
More than 500 fans saw the Wol-
verines, paced by Evie Doran and
George Cooke pour in a quartet of
goals to the Illinois net.
With Michigan leading 4-0 in the
last period, the game developed into
a wild orgy of high-sticking, vicious
body-checking and even flying fists
as eight penalties, seven minor and
one major, were called.
Al Chadwick, Michigan wing, and
Capt. Dick Fee of the Illini, tangled
in the center of the ice and exchanged
a pair of blows before the officials
could separate them and send them
to the penalty box. Chadwick alone
accounted for four of the eleven pen-
alties registered during the course
of the game.
Although it was the fisticuffing and
roughing that pleased the crowd, it
was a combination of George Cooke
and Everett Doran that proved the
margin of victory for the visiting
solo dash after he had picked up
sextet. Each got two goals to account
for all the scoring and Cooke got an
assist on Doran's last marker to make
him high man.
Cooke s first goal, which came at
6:42 of the opening stanza, was a

Minnesota's flawless basketball
team celebrated their first annivers-,
ary last night at the Yost Field House,
and it was strictly a closed affair.
Commemorating one year of unde-
feated basketball, the poised and cn-
fident Gophers made Michigan their
19th straight victim as they routed
the Wolverines 34 to 21 before 8,700
One year ago, a Michigan basket-
ball team won its third straight game
and a Minnesota team, the same fiv
men who played last night, lost their
third game in a row at Minneapolis.
Since then, the Gophers have swept
to 12 Conference and seven non-con-
ference victories, mncluding last
night's rout.
Termed Fines Team
Labeled by Michigan coaches and
players as "the finest team we've ever
seen," this veteran crew, four of
whom are seniors, out-classed Michi-
gan in every phase of the game to win
with consummate ease.
Passing with an uncanny accuracy
and employing a lightning fast,break,
sans any race horse tactics, the visit-
ors were sure, finished, and out in
front all the way.
Michigan went to a 3 to 2 lead in the
initial minute of the game on a basket
by Eddie Thomas and a foul by
Charley Pink, but when the Gophers
opened up the throttle the ball game
became a mere formality.
Led by unshaven Johnny Kundla,
who canned five field goals and two
fouls for 12 points, and Gordon Add-
ington, their diminutive play-maker,
the Gophers rifled in three baskets
and two fouls with incredible finesse
to make it 10 to 3 before the crowd
realized what had happened. Shoot-
ing the ball around the court like a
baseball around an infield, they
would maneuver the Wolverines out
of position and crash in with the fast
break for easy buckets.
Michigan Inferior
Admittedly inferior, Michigan,nev-
ertheless, ws far off its game. Pass-
ing was slopPy, and the defense was
lax. The Daily score card for the first
half shows the Wolverines taking 32
shots and making five while the visit-
ors hit 10 times out of 23 attempts.
Close guarding by Minnesota clogged
up the inside court, and ten Michigan
shots outside netted only =a single
With Jimmie Rae suffering from
his mysterious back ailment, Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan deviated his of-
fense somewhat. Rae seldom went in-
to the pivot spot, and Charley Pink's
attempts to get off his favorite hook
shot or feed to a breaking mate from
the foul circle were nullified by Paul
Maki, Charley's tall guard..
osterbaan shifted his lineup re-
peatedly to find a scoring combina-
tion, but only on one brief occasion
did life hit the Wolverines. With the
score 13 to 5 against them, Dan Smick
was sent in to relieve Tom Harmon.
A pretty three way pass, Pink to
Smick to Rae set up an easy basket,
and the varsity showed a flash of
