BERLIN, Nov. 25.-(.')-Nazi Ger-
many tonight claimed for its bomb- 1

British navy-square hits on four
warships in the North Sea.
DNB, the off icial 'German news
agency, said the attack occurred 560
miles from the German' coast.
Eluding heavy fire from ati-air-
craft guns, DNB said, the German
planesreturned safely.
The DNB account ended there, giv-

Turns The Tables
Germany proposes, in other words,
to turn the tables on Britain as com-
pared to 1914 by starving her out
rather than let her starve the Reich.
Oe of the most outspoken dailies,
Schlesische Zeltung of Breslau, de-
"We arefirmly convinced we will
succeedin defeating England with
her own weapons, reverse the block-
ade dart aimed at us 'and isolate this
pestilential island."
Deutsche Algemeine Zeitung dis-
cussed "the dangerous lanes" leading
to the British Isles and adjured neu-
trals to follow the United States ex-
ample of forbidding American ships
to go there.

LONDON, Nov. 25.-()-The Bri-

Scott-Marino Pass Accounts For First O.S.U. Touchdown;
Interception By Kodros Halts Buckeye Scoring Threat'

I Closing Seconds
Intercepted Passes And Fumbles Provide
Scoring Opportunities; Buck Tallies
Made In Game's Initial Quarter
One final burst of Michigan brilliance broke through the sullen, shape-
less skies that hung over the Stadium yesterday afternoon and when the
last bit of lightning had struck in the last 50 seconds of play, the Wolverines
had humbled the new Conference champions, Ohio State, 21-14.
Eighty-one thousand fans, jammed into every corner of the bowl,
watched in awe and admiration as a Michigan team that wouldn't give up
overcame a first period 14-0 deficit. But to do it the Wolverines had to tear
a page from Francis Schmidt's own book of football legerdemain as two
of the touchdowns came on razzle-dazzle that would have done the Ohio
mentor's heart good-had his own Buckeyes been the perpetrators.
The climax came in the last minute when, with the score knotted at 14
all and the ball on the Ohio 23-yard line, Tom Harmon faked a field goal
and Fred Trosko, who had simulated holding the ball for the attempt, picked

Study Effects
Of Blockade'
State Department Experts
Consider Protesting Plan
Of British And French
WASHINGTON, Nov. 25. -(P)-
State Department legal' experts
studied 24 year old precedents today
in considering whether the United
States should protest the latest Bri-
tish-French plan for strangling Ger-
many economically.
In 1915 Secretary of State William
Jennings Bryan protested vigorously
that a British-French order similar
to the present Allied plan to seize all
German exports, was without prece-
dent in international law.
The p r e s e n t Administration's
stand will not be determined defin-
itely, officials said, until Great Bri-
tain issues the formal order in coun-
cil which Prime Minister Chamber-
lain said would retaliate for German
submarine mine attacks. The order
is expected next week.
Meanwhile, the State Department
reported that 14 more American ships
had been detained by the British and
French and, in several instances,
cargo removed which was adjudged
to be destined for Germany.

Union Officers Start New Search
For Madcap Grant' In Opera Role.

Union officers will start a new
search for "Maacap Lee Grant"
whom Sleuth Dean 3ursley found
out isn't a madcap freshman after
all, when they hold the first try-
outs for parts in this year's revival
production of the Opera. Lee Grant
is the lead role in this production.
Try-outs for dancing, smging and
acting parts will be held for five
days in the Union. The times are:
today 3 to 6 p.m. in Room 318; to-
morrow, 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Room
318; Tuesday, 1 to 3 p.m. in Room
318; Wednesday, 7 to 9 p.m. in Room
305; and Thursday, 7 to 9 p.m. in
Room .304.
In issuing the plea for tryouts
yesterday, the Executive Committee
announced that "The main purpose
of the Opera is to give you, the men
of Michigan, the opportunity to par-

of the Opera's publicity committee,
made the campus actually believe
that Grant was a flesh-and-blood
mischief-maker. Dean Bursley and
the Apostles' Club of prominent fac
ulty men finally succeeded in un-
masking the whole hoax last week,
but not until the campus knew the
type of personality that is needed
for the Opera's "leading man."
The leading lady of the show will
be Hedy La Tour, a slinky "glamor
girl" who will be selected from
among the ranks of the men in spite
of a vehement protest by women
students last week.
According to Robert Mix, '40,
"There will be room for practically
every type of talent-singing, com-
edy, dialect, imitations of the Presi-
dent and Mrs. Roosevelt, of Samuel
Goldwyn, of inebriated newspaper
men, even of dogs."

The lecture is the second in a series

guages on themes of social, political
and economic science in all parts of
the United States, Canada, Great
Britain and France.
This series on "The Religious As-

that students, from whom the main]

Ohio State for the winning touch-
lown. The play was a masterpiece
if football hypnotism as no one in
the packed stands or, more impor-
;ant, on the Ohio State team, was
ble to penetrate the deception.
-Michigan Magic
It took all of this magic to exceed
that on which Michigan scored its
econd touchdown. The ball was on
the Ohio 16-yard line in the early
minutes of the second half, and on
first down, Michigan again astound-
d the spectators and Ohio State on
a fake buck' and lateral which only
a few people were able to decipher.
None of them were Buckeye players.
Bob Westfall took the pass from
enter and on his way through the
fiddle handed the ball to vashev-
ski who had remained motionless in
the short position. Evie faked a
ateral to Rogers on an end-around
and then threw a short shovel lateral

right to take the pass. The Hammer

The other- Wolverine touchdown
came in an entirely orthodox man-
ner but once again it was astute
quarterbacking on the part ofEva-
shevski 'that set the scoring play up.
Michigan had driven from its own
44-yard line to the Ohio five on four
plays and then, with the Buckeye
backs expecting an end sweep, Har-
mon faked to the right and threw
a short bullet pass to the One-Man-
Gang all alone in the end zone. Har-
mon converted on all three occa-
Breaks Determine Play
Notwithstanding t h e excellent
football that was displayed all after-
noon by both teams, in the final
analysis it was the breaks that led
to four of the five scores and to the
final winner. Ohio's fumbling was
disastrous. They dropped the ball
eight times and on half of these alert
Michigan linemen recovered. The
Wolverines had the same difficulty.
They lost the ball once on a fumble
(it led to a Buckeye touchdown) and
in ,the first period, their recurrent
threats were repeatedly broken up
by wide-awake invader backs inter-
cepting aerial thrusts.
Both the Buckeye scores came in
the first period and both came be-
fore the last of the fifth largest
throng in Michigan history had filed
into their seats. They scored twice
within a minute and for a time it ap-
peared that' the Michigan football
season that had started out so bril-
liantly would end in complete dis-
grace. Less than 1 minutes after
Charley Maag kicked off. to Harmon,
the Bucks had notched their first.
And a minute later they did it again.
First Break Comes
Their first break came when Tros-
ko's bullet pass was intercepted by
Jim Strausbaugh, a threat all day,
on the Ohio 40, and returned to the
Michigan 25 where Westfall stopped
him. They failed to gain and when
Maag's attempted field goal from
the 17-yard line went awry for a
touchback, the Michigan supporters
began to breath easier. They might
just as well have saved themselves
