29,150-Ton 'Royal Oak'
Was One Of Largest
In Great Britain's Navy
Germany Rejoices
Over Sea Victory
(By Associated Press)
Germany chalked up her second
major sea triumph yesterdy (Satur-
day) by sinking the Royal Oak, one
of Great Britain's biggest battleships,
amid mounting indications the Nazis
are getting ready for the finish fight
promised by Adolf Hitler if his peace
efforts failed.
Terse communiques from the Bri-
tish Admiralty disclosed the loss of
the 29,150-ton Royal Oak and re-
vealed that 830 of her crew probably
had been lost. The Admiralty said
it was believed a submarine sank the
Germans rejoiced over the sinking
of the Royal Oak. It was the second
time in a 'month that the Nazis had
scored an undisputed sea success. The
British aircraft carrier Courageous
was torpedoed on Sept. 18 with the
loss of 515 men.
No Details Available
Neither. government gave details
of the Royal Oak sinking, but she
presumably wasin the North Sea.
The Admiralty did not disclose
where or when the disaster came to
the Royal Oak, which was completed
in May, 1916, and was credited with
sinking four German ships in the
World War battle of Jutland without
damage to herself.
The Admiralty's announcement
came only a few hours after it had
asserted the British destroyed three
German submarines "on Friday the
Of these it was reported today that
two were of the large, ocean-going
The, naval- correspondent of the
Evening.News called the loss of the
Royal Oak "a bad blow for the navy"
'but "'With the overwhelming supre-
macy in capital ships already in com-
missiort--nine new battleships are
now building-not a crippling blow."
British Navy Still Large
(With the Royal Oak gone Britain
'has 14 capital ships-11 battleships
and three battlecruisers-and France
seven. Germany has only five, includ-
ing three "pocket battleships" of 10,-
000 tons each. The United States has
15 capital ships.)
The Royal Oak was heavily ar-
mored with a 13-inch belt of steel to
protect her vital parts and deep
bulges extending almost up to the
gun batteries as a protection against
submarine attack.
How a submarine was able to reach
her if she was shielded as usual by
accompanying destroyers puzzled
neutral naval observers.
The sinking of the Royal Oak fol-
lowed a period of comparative inac-
tion by German submarines and
Admiralty assertions that the sub-
marine menace rapidly was being
overcome. Other sources attributed
the period of calm to the refuelling
requirements of the submarines.

Try-outs may register either for
dramatic parts or for work on one

scenery and properties, dance, make-
up, personnel and publicity.
The Board has as yet announced
no decision on the possibility of in-

27,518 yesterday afternoon at 1
The Hoosier Hammer was the
tire offensive show in Michigan's C
ference opener. He scored all of
Wolverine's four touchdowns, one
them on a 95-yard runback of
intercepted pass, and successfi
converted on three of them. His
fensiveh play completely over-sh
owed the bruising line-backing a
blocking of Forest Evashevski, t
defensive play of Joe Savilla, e
Joe Rogers and Ed Frutig, the pass
of Iowa's Nile Kinnick. It was a H
mon day and nobody could take a
thing away from him.
Iowa Threatens
But for the first five minutes it
peared as though Iowa were go
to pull a major upset. On Iov
second set of downs in the first qu
ter, Nile Kinnick faded to his o
20-yard line and threw a 50-y
pass to Floyd Dean on the Michi
30. With Michigan'sdefense set
the touted Kinnick-to-Erwin Pra
combination, Da slippd beh
Bob Westfall, to the ball on
dead run to score unmolested. K

'The Wolverine stands were glum
they saw the Hawkeyes, in five m
utes, take the lead.
But then the first of three bre
came Michigan's way. After Mic
gan had failed to make up eno
ground to compensate for a 15-yp
penalty, Bill Smith came out of
line to kick to Kinnick on the IC
40. Frutig, downfield fast, hit
Iowa ace as his hands touched
ball, forced Kinnick to fumble a
Savilla pounced on the ball on
Hawkeye 39.
Five plays later the Wolveri
had scored. After Harmon's pass
Evie fell incomplete and a line p
picked up but three, the Ham
faded and threw a bullet pass
Frutig on the 15 and the River R0
end went to the two-yard line bei
he was knocked out of bounds. We
fall could get only one at center
on the next play Harmon star
around left end; then cut back c
guard for the score. He conver

Lifting Of Embargo Promises
No Boom, Says C. L. Jamison

The repeal of the Embargo Act
seems unlikely to benefit American
business enough to be worth a pos-
sible risk of becoming involved in the
European war, Prof. Charles L Jami-
son, of the School of Business Ad-
ministration,, said last night.
Many people think that orders by
belligerent nations will total billions

feet of increasing output of a very
few industries until their production
approached capacity. One must con-
sider, he pointed out, that the steel
industry and other "war industries"
have already expanded their plants
to sizes beyond peace-time needs,
and no series of mere million-dollar
orders is likely to cause a boom in
industries ready to handle billion-
