Indiana Breaks Michigan's Seven-Year Hold On

Track Title

(Special To The Daily)
LAFAYETTE, Ind., March 8.-A small but potent band of Hoosier trackmen over-
came Michigan's vaunted balance here in the Purdue Field House tonight to snap a
seven-year Wolverine grasp on the Western Conference indoor title.
Led by the sensational veteran running twins, sandy haired Roy Cochran and
long Campbell (Billy) Kane, star-studded Indiana captured first place in five of the
12 events to wind up the two-day carnival with a 44 point total.
Completely swept aside by the Hoosiers' amazing parade to the finish line, Ken
Doherty's defending champions took runner-up honors with 33%i1 points, only three
ahead of third place Ohio State.
Illinois, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Purdue, Minnesota, Chicago and Iowa trailed

the leaders in that order with the cellar-occupying Hawkeyes failing to score a single
The very first event on tonight's program, the one mile run, gave 2,500 spectators
notice of what was to foliow. For moving into the eighth lap, Kane, Hoosier hot shot
and Michigan's greatest villain all night, roared into a commanding lead over Ohio's
Les Eisenhart and easily led the pack across the line in 4:16 with Paul Kendall and
Wayne Tolliver boosting Indiana's point total in the single event to 10 by racing home
right behind Eisenhart.
That wasn't all for the phenomenal elongated Indiana middle distance star. There
was plenty more good running left in his powerful legs and he returned to the cinders
about an hour later to cutsprint Park Brown of Illinois to the tape for the Conference
half mile title with a timing of 1:54.8.

The other three Hoosier individual titles came from Cochran, who whipped Mich-
igan's great sophomore, Bob Ufer, by five yards in the 440; Fred Wilt, brilliant young
distance ace, who won the two mile crown; and Bob Burnett, who took a surprising first
away from favorite Bob Lewis of Illinois in the broad jump.
Those performances were enough to take the heart out of the battling Wolverines.
Indiana garnered points in only two of the other seven events, but that proved more
than enough to snatch the team title.
As expected the Wolverines displayed outstanding team balance by scoring in nine
of the events, but their ability to win only two of' them and finish second in two, told
the tale of tonight's defeat. Capt. Don Canham leaped six feet, three and three-quar-
ter inches to snare the high jump title and Michigan's speedy mile relay quartet made
up of Bob Barnard, Bill Dobson, Al Thomas and Ufer, stormed home ahead of the Hoo-

IOWA CITY, March 8.-The great-

the world gave Michigan its third
consecutive Big Ten tank title here
tonight with a record-shattering
point total of 87 and as brilliant
a display of swimming as has ever
been seen.
Iowa was second with 24, Minne-
sota third with 17 and Ohio State
fourth with 16, with the rest of the

the only school failing to garner a

Galles Takes Title
(Special to The Daily)
COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 8.-Jim
Galles, Michigan's 175-pound iron
man, was the only Varsity grappler
to win a Big Ten individual title here
tonight in a meet which saw Minne-
sota unexpectedly upset Indiana and
take the Conference wrestling crown.
Galles outclassed Art Johnson of
Iowa and won 5-2 in a match which
was marred by Johnson's repeated
fouling tactics. Two of Galles' points
were gained when the Iowan commit-
ted fouls.
Minnesota's amazing team victory,
with a total score of 22 points, left
all the pre-meet dopesters non-
plussed. In discussing the possible

Civilians Killed
In London Raid
Luftwaffe Renews Blitz
Attack After Respite
(By The Associated Press)
LONDON, March 9-(Sunday)-A
number of Londoners were killed,
wounded or trapped in piles of debris
last night and early today in the first
heavy night Luftwaffe raid on the
British capital in weeks.
Attacking with a fury reminiscent
of the blitz raids of last fall, the Ger-
mans scored a direct hit on a night
club crowded with dancers; killed
and injured a number of pedestrians
on a London roadway; and caused
other casualties when two bombs ex-
ploding at the ends of a block caved
in a cafe where many were dining.
There was a brief lull in the raid
shortly before midnight and then
the Luftwaffe stepped up the bombs.
It was believed a large number of
civilians-and perhaps service men
enjoying a leave-were trapped late
last night in the wrecked night club.
Crowds which gathered around the
club wreckage quickly scattered as
more bombs fell.
Bombs falling on both sides of
another cafe caused casualties. Mass-
es of German planes were dumping
hundreds of high explosives on the

French Navy TOConvoy
Frei__rs Berlin Says

Greece Scores GermanyI
For Massing Troops;
Turk Intentions Asked
(By The Associated Press)
While diplomatic and military ac-
tivity increased in Europe's Balkans
Saturday, threatening to plunge all
southeast Europe into war, it was an-
nounced in Berlin, and denied in
Vichy, that remaining units of the
French Navy would convoy French
merchantmen if British attacks on
those vessels continued.
Possible effect of such a naval move
would be to throw the former allies
into naval conflict. However, the
United States Embassy in Vichy de-
nied that it had been informed off
such a move by the French, and it
was believed the statement, creditedj
in Berlin to Fernand de Brinon,
French representative in Paris, was
purely hypothetical. Some sources
said Admiral Jean Darlan, vice-
premier of France, may have cited
the possibilitiy of such action.
Newspapers Attack Germany
The report and denial opened a
new diplomatic front in Europe, al-
ready jittery from the suspense in the
Balkans, where activity was height-
ened by a statement published in an
Athens newspaper berating the Ger-
man nation for even thinking of at-
tacking the Greek flank, and a report
in Belgrade that Greece had asked
Turkey what her intentions might be
if Germany did attack.
An authoritative source in Belgrade,
said a clear statement of Turkey's
position with regard to the expected
Nazi invasion of Thrace and eastern
Macedonia has been sought from the
Turkish Foreign Office by the Greek
minister at Ankaar.
Turkey and Greece signed a mutual

GRAND RAPIDS, March 8.-(W)-
With 16 of 20 local unions giving
unanimous approval to an agree-
meng between the Consumers Pow-
er Comnanv and the International

assistance treaty in September, 1933,
which guaranteees their frontier in
Thrace and pledges use of military
force to defend it. They also are
bound in mutual defense pledges by
the 1934 Balkan Entente Treaty.
At the same time, with 150,000
German soldiers reported to be
massed at her border, Greece hurled
defiance at the Germans and chided
the central power for even thinking
of attacking her smaller neighbor.
Greeks To Fight To End
An army of "free Greeks" will fight
to the death against any German
invasion from the east just as they
have fought the Italians on the west,
an open newspaper letter to Adolf
EHitler said. The paper also hinted
the Italians must evacuate Albania
if they want peace with Greece.
The open letter appeared in the
newspaper Kathimerini. (Six words
of the dispatch were censored).
If Germany wants to save the
Italians now fighting in Albania, the
letter said, Greece is ready to settle
matters "without humiliation to It-
aly"-provided the Italians "leave Al-
bania alone," but it expressed incred-
ulity that the German nation of 85,-
000,000 people would "strike from the
flank" of Greece, a little country
"now struggling for freedom against
an empire of 45,000,000."

as saying that opposition to Japan
"would do the United States no good."
"The new order of the great Asiat-
ic Area is our unshakable objective,"
the envoy said.
"If anyone in America wishes to
oppose it with power, I cannot be-
lieveit, I do not want to believe it,
but if so such opposition would do
the United States no good.
"We have never been provocative
against the Anglo-Saxon powers and
we are not so now. Bit we are strong

Roosevelt Is Authorized
To Mobilize Industry
In Cause Of Britain
Walsh Amendment
RejectedBy Solons
WASHINGTON. March 8.-()-
Worn down by three weeks of oratory
and dispute, the Senate tonight by a
vote of 60 to 31 finally passed the
lease-lend bill authorizing President
Roosevelt to mobilize industrial
America and throw its products into
England's battle against Germany.
Then it sent the measure to the
House with a request that the latter
soncur in the series of Administra-
:ion-approved amehdments which
had been added. All indications were
the House would agree to doso on
Tuesday, or by Wednesday at the
latest, with the bill going to the
WhiteHouseimmediately tliereafter
for President Roosevelt's signature.
Senate In Good Humor
The vote on final passage found
;he Senate in easy-going good humor,
jespite many days of frazzled tem-
>ers and personal animadversions.
The opposition, clinging obdurately
o its view that the bill means war,
vas simply worn out by repeated
lemonstrations of the Administra-
ion's numerical superiority.
For all practical purposes it utter-
v collapsed last night, and today's
session consisted of a routine of
hrowing out remaining opposition
mendments as rapidly as they were
iffere, and then capping the de-
>ate with the passage of the bill.
In the course of this process, the
3enate summarily rejected an amend-
nent by Chairman Walsh (Dem-
Mass) of the Naval Committee, to
uard the navy and air force against
iepletion in the help-to-Britain pro-
ram, and a substitute bill by Senator
Taft (Rep-Ohio) to authorize loans
otaling $2,000,000,000 to Britain,
anada and Greece.
Amendment Turned Down
Walsh's amendment was rejected
56 to 33 and Taft's substitute bill
was turned down 63 to 28.
But, specifically, the manufacture
of the defense materials in question
would be limited, in'terms of money,
by a provision, added in the Senate
which Administration spokesmen said
would retain for Congress a complete
and always current control of the
program. This limits orders for the
production of war materials to the
extent to which Congress later ap-
proves appropriations or authorizes
the signing of contracts.
To make the money control com-
plete, another limitation restricts the
extent to which war supplies already
in the hands of the Army and Navy
may be used. These things may be
transferred to England or others to
a maximum "value" of $1,300,000,000.
There was extensive debate on what
the word "value" meant and Adminis-
tration leaders finally put in a pro-
vision that the "value" of the articles
should be determined by the heads of
the departments or agencies immedi-
ately concerned.
