Michigan's Hopes For Penn Game D:
As Kromer Injures Leg Again In Bat
The Wolverines fell in a Gopher hole yesterday afternoon and
buried alive-and interred along with them were whatever mathema
hopes they had entertained for a Big Ten championship tie. And with
titular aspirations went the historic Little Brown Jug, back to its res
in Minneapolis for the sixth consecutive year, as Minnesota whippe
favored Michigan eleven, 20-7.
The Gophers completely bottled up a Wolverine running attack that
for the first four games of the year, been the most highly geared in
nation. And synonomous with curtailing Michigan's ground gain was
fact that Tom Harmon, second best runner in the country before yesterd
game, was able to ick up only 50 yards from scrimmage and was hel
one point after touchdown.
It was the sixth consecutive victory for the Norsemen as they exter
their own modern record for successive victories over the Wolverines.

Is Prepared,
Minister Says

As European Battlefield,
Asserts Its Neutrality
BRUSSELS, Nov. 11.-VP)-Defense
Minister General Henri Denis, de-
claring that the Belgian Army was
well-equipped and ready for any
sacrifice, told the nation today that
it must be able to defend itself.
"Help yourself and God will help
you," General Denis said during a
nationwide broadcast in which he ex-
plained the military situation.
He condemned alarmist rumors
which have accompanied the nation's
stepped up program of precaution-
ary defense measures, including a
mobilization boost which placed the
army's strength at nearly/600,000.
HAGUE, Nov. 11.-(A)-Nether-
lands officialdom, taking all pre-
cautions to preserve and defend the
nation's neutrality, indicated strong
displeasure tonight over reports pub-
lished abroad that the little lowland
nation was on the verge of becoming
a battleground for warring powers.
Well informed sources said tension
over reports of German troop move-
ments on the Eastern frontier had
eased. The cabinet met and pre-
sumably discussed the international
situation but no announcement was
An editorial in the Amsterdam de
Telegraaf, based on reports from its
foreign correspondents, said that
while the situation of the Nether-
lands "continued precarious," there
was no evidence that it was becom-
ing worse.
"Our information," it said, "with-
out exception is contrary to alarming
rumors published about our country,
especially in the British press."
