In addition, anti-aircraft batteries

BUCHAREST, Jan. 6.-MP-King
Carol declared that all Rumanians
"are ready to die together to defend
their borders" in a bristling speech
today interpreted throughout the
Balkans as a warning to both Rus-
sia and Hungary.
He spoke only 12 miles from the
Russian frontier at Chisinau (Kish-
inev), capital of Bessarabia, the prov-
ince that was Russian until 1918.
Russia and Hungary have been in-
sistent in demands for return of
territories they lost to Rumania in
the World War settlement.
"The whole country is united as
one man," insisted Gen. George Ar-
gesanu of the third army corps in
a speech welcoming Carol. "It will

LONDON, Jan. 6.-(IP)--Reuters,
British news agency, quoted the Tal-
linn radio tonight as saying that an
unnamed Estonian steamer had been
bombed and sunk by a "belligerent"
warplane in the North Sea 25 miles
off the Norwegian coast.
The crew was said to have been
machinegunned while taking to the
lifeboats, and two men were reported
wounded. All aboard were rescued by
a Swedisgh steamer, according to the
Conforming to nearly a decade of
Michigan tradition the University
Concert Band will formally inaugur-
ate its 1940 season by presenting the1
annual midwinter concert in Hill
Auditorium at 4:15 p.m., Jan. 14.
Supplementing this year the usual
attraction of concert music will be
the appearance of Dr. Edwin Franko.
Goldman, director of the Goldman
Band of New York City, as guest con-
ductor of the University Band. Dr.
Goldman will conduct the Band in at
least two of his own compositions,
according to Prof. William Revelli,
conductor of the University Band.
The concert will be the highlight
of the annual Band and Orchestra
Clinic which will be convened in Ann
Arbor, Jan. 13-14.
Recordings by a Chicago music
publishing house will be made of
some selections by the band during
the concert, Professor Revelli said.
These recordings, he explained, will
be made available to high school band
and orchestra conductors throughout
the United States who will not have
been able to attend the Band and
Music for the concert is drawn
from the works, of both modern and
classical composers, Professor Revelli
revealed. Compositions of Dr. Gold-
man will be given a prominent place
in the program, he said.
Much of the music of the mid-
winter concert will be presented by
the band in a broadcast over Station
WJR Detroit at 2:15 the same after-
noon. Dr. Goldman will also act as
guest conductor at that time. A studio
audience will be admitted to the
broadcast, but it is recommended by
Professor Revelli that all who are able
attend the midwinter concert for
a more complete program.

Today's 3:15 p.m. general session
of the group at the North Lounge of
the Union will conclude the Parley.
At this final session, to be presided
over by Robert S. Reed, '41, the con-
clusions of the several groups com-
prising the Parley will be summar-
ized by the group secretaries, presen-
tation of a talk by Prof. Preston W.
Slosson of the history department.
The general group. will then recon-
sider the problems raised during the
preceding sessions and will adopt fi-
nal resolutions indicating its view-
points on these problems.
Suggestions for keeping the Unit-
ed States out of war was fundamental
at all of yesterday's afternoon and
evening sessions of the Parley. But
recurrent at all of these sessions was
the discussion of the origins of the
present European war together with
analyses of political and economic
systems and their probable effects on
the maintenance of peace.
Imperialist competition for raw
materials and markets was generally
agreed upon as one of the principal
causes for war but the degree of em-
phasis to be placed on this factor
differed widely throughout the va-
ried groups. Suggestions, however,
for reallocations of colonies and more
liberal treatment of native popula-
tions featured all sessions.
General agreement that modern
war was primarily totalitarian led
the groups in the evening sessions to
a considerations of American civil
liberties at the present time, their
existence during a possible war in
which the United States was in-
volved, and their survival after this
Prominent in the discussion of
methods .to prevent American in-
volvement in war were the pleas for
the maintenance of objectivity and
intellectual balance by the American
populace. Public opinion was cited
as one of most powerful weapons to
involve the United States in war.
A complete understanding of the
war aims of the European nations
was listed as a preventative toward
American involvement in war. The
groups, moreover, generally agreed
upon the "necessity of the United
States becoming an intervening,
powerful neutral at the end of the

Michigan Tech's Huskies evened
their hockey series with the Wolver-
ines last night aD the Coliseum when
they put on a last, period two-goal
drive that earned them a 2-0 victory
over Michigan's outplayed sextet.
After carrying the game to the
visitors for more than half the game,
the Wolverines fell back before the
upstaters as the Miners' attack gained
momentum and finally produced two
goals, one coming early in the last
stanza, and the other at the midway
The tally that broke the scoreless
deadlock came two minutes and 46
seconds after the period had gotten
under way when Maurice Villeneuve
picked up a rebound shot off James'
pads and caught the open corner of
the net with his shot. The second
score came at 11:18 when Moose
Mulliette gathered in Bud Briden's
perfect pass and flicked the puck
over James into the net as Spike slid
out to meet him.
The game was much faster than
Thursday's contest, and the overflow
crowd which watched the game was
treated to thrilling hockey when the
two teams threw caution to the winds
to play wide-open hockey in their
efforts to score. The Miners eased up
on their attack in the third period
after scoring the first marker and
chose to sit back and protect the one-
goal lead only breaking away when
their chances came.

Hore-Belisha's Ouster Is -Seen
Result Of His Energetic Nature
By HOWARD A. GOLDMAN
The man's boundiess energy and'
his tremendous impatience to push1
the war probably were dominant fac-
tors in the ouster of Leslie Hore-Be-
lisha as Britain's war minister, Prof.
Arthur L. Cross of the history de-
partment declared yesterday in an
The deposed war secretary is
known for his opposition to the policy
of delay now being effected in the
war, Professor Cross pointed out, and
this opposition is running counter to
the plans of Marshall Gamelin, com-
mander-in-chief of the Franco-Bri-
tish forces. Gamelin, he explained,
is supposed to be one of the best mili-
tary strategists in Europe, but he is
also an extremely cautious man, keen
on fighting a delaying kind of war.
Professor Cross recalled that the
term "Bore War" is being applied to
present hostilities but that Prime
Minister Chamberlain has declared
that he would rather be bored than
bombed. Nevertheless, Professor Cross
appointee, Oliver Stanley, is from an
old conservative family and is a firm
believer in Chamberlain conservatism.
Stanley, he added, served in the World1
Hore-Belisha was "locking horns"
with the British Field Commander,'
Galt, supposedly concerning Game-'
lin's position as commander-in-chief
of combined forces of Britain and
France, Professor Cross said. The'
ousted secretary also found opposition
to his desire to unite the air force
with his army, he observed.
A similar situation arose during the
last war, Professor Cross observed
when British Marshall Haig was not
too enthusiastic about French Mar-
shal Foch as commander-in-chief of
the Allied troops, but that "deal" was
put through by Prime Minister Lloyd
George. Prime Minister Asquith had
resigned a short time previous, Pro-
fessor Cross added, when his govern-
ment was charged with listlessness in
prosecuting the war.
Professor Cross received a letter

The world is upon the brink of an-

Mr. Knickerbocker will deliver the
fifth Oratorical Series lecture, "At
the Ringside of History," on Wednes-
day, Jan. 17, in Hill Auditorium.
He believes that the present con-
flict between Germany and the Allied
democracies will probably last at least
six years, but predicts that this con-
flict is merely the prelude to the
greater war that is to come. That
war, Mr. Knickerbocker thinks, will
be a conflict betwen a "Red Russia
and a Red Germany on one side and
the Allied Powers and anyone else
who will fight in the interests of de-
cency and civilization on the other."
Mr. Knickerbocker intends to dis-
cuss the consequences of the conflict,
the possibiilties of this country's in-
volvement and the American stake in
Europe in his lecture here.

Michigan Men Use Speed,

Ohio's Fighting Quintet
Brogan Is Scoring
By CHRIS VIZAS
Michigan turned on the heat last
night and out-fought Ohio State's
defending Big Ten basketball cham-
pions to register a 40-35 victory in the
opening game of the Conference sea-
son before a capacity crowd at the
The Wolverines made up for their
lack of height by playing smart and
wide-awake ball. Time and again
they broke up Buckeye passes in their
opponents' territory and converted
them into baskets, and they outplayed
the champions underneath the mesh-
es in a wild, nip and tuck contest.
Brogan Steals Show
Herb Brogan stole the show as he
scored 13 points to take scoring hon-
ors for the evening. The 5 ft. 10
in. Wolverine guard faked and slipped
through the giant forward Johny
Schick, who starred on last season's
title winners, three times in the first
frame to score six points.
In addition Brogan connected with
three perfect long shots, which did
not even touch the rim as they
swished through the meshes. One
came in the final minutes of the first
period and the other twoat points in
the last stanza when Ohio State was
threatening to overtake Michigan.
Right on Brogan's heels was Capt.
Jim Rae, who collected 11 markers
to take second place scoring honors.
Rae turned in another great defensive
job as he held center Bill Sattler to
six points and gotsthe jump on him
most of the time. Rae's one-handed
pivot shot from outside the foulcircle
wasn't clicking, but six of his points
were spectacular corner shots.
Lynch Kept orm
Despite the ragged play of his team-
mates Capt. Bob Lynch still looked
like the great ball player he is rated
to be. All of his field goals came
on long shots far back of the foul
circle and three of them were from,
approximately the same spot.
Lynch bucketed three of these loop-
ing shots in the first half, but Char-
lie Pink, who had the tough assign-
ment of guarding the Buckeye star,
kept him pretty well bottled up in the
last half as he connected only once
for two points. Lynch was watched
so closely in this frame that he was
forced to hurry a good number of his
