CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Mar. 13-Play-
ing without their star defenseman,
Amno Bessone and Capt. Chet Ziem-
ba, the Illinois Hockey team skated
to a 4-2 decision over a hard-fight-
ing band of Wolverines from Michi-
gan here tonight.,
Although Illinois displayed much
superiority over their Ann Arbor op-
ponents, as they did in last week's
two contests, which Illinois cap-
tured by scores of 7-1 and 8-2, they
were held to four tallies by a master-
iul net-minding job turned in by lit-
tle Hank Loud, Wolverine goalie.
Local fans were loud in their praise
of Loud who, although he made only
29 saves, came up with at least ten
shots fired from sticks of Illinois
players who were completely in the
clear.

JIM GALLES
Galles Chosen
New Captain
Of Mat Team;
By STAN CLAMAGE
The Michigan wrestling team paid
tribute to Jim Galles, their only 1941
Conference Champion, yesterday,E
when they selected him to lead the
grapplers during the 1941-42 season.
Galles selection was not at all sur-
prising, for he has been one of the
most consistent performers on Cliff
Keen's squad. Last year, as a soph-
more, Jim was a regular 165-pounder
and lost only one match out of nine
in dual meet competition. He then
went on to place second in the Big
Ten Meet.
During the past season Galles, a
Chicago product, continued his fine
work by finishing the dual meet sea-
son with eight victories and no losses,
in addition to winning the Confer-
ence 175-pound crown.
Commenting on the selection of,
his new captain, Coach Cliff Keen
said, "I'm very happy over the se-
lection, and am sure that Jim will
be a very fine leader."

Nazis, Britain
Are Letting Go
Indicates A Connection
Between Air Blows,
Bill Enactment
By KIRKE L. SIMPSON
(Associated Press Staff writer)
There was obviously a direct con-
nection between enacting of the
American Aid-for-Britain Bill and the
furious British-German exchange of
air blows that followed.
The British wanted to give a bomb-
illustrated notice to the German peo-
ple that they can expect more and
worse immediately; that American
help for Britain is already effective.
The German counter-blow at Liv-,
erpool areas was obviously planned
to follow up the Nazi boast that
American help will come "too late"
for England. It also probably is a!
forerunner of immediately intensi-
fied Nazi air attack on British ports,
to supplement the war at sea.
Conflicting accounts of losses and
ydamage do not obscure the most sig-
nificant fact of that night of air
duelling. It is, as the British say, a
demonstration that Britain has held
in reserve a powerful and slowly-
accumulated bomber force, now
turned loose.
With replacemerias assured by the
American aid, program, Britain can
risk its reserve in stepped-up of-
fensive action. It is already reaching

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia, March 13.
-Like men lost in a maze, leaders
of the World-War-born-kingdom con-'
ferred for hours today in an effort to
find a way to appease Germany with-
out lashing their nation to the Ber-
lin-Rome-Tokyo Axis.
Chief Regent Prince Paul and Pre-
mier Dragisa Cvetkovic locked them-
selves in conferences in Deinje Pal-
ace's study, but what conclusions
they reached were not disclosed.
Earlier Cvetkovic conferred with
Dr. Vladimir Macek, leader of the
Croations and lesser politicians.
Only along the short Greek fron-
tier could Yugoslavia still count on
non-Axis friendship, and access to
that 100-odd mile gateway is the
principal objective of German press-
ure.
Greece, which has declared it will
continuesits fight against the Axis
regardless of Yugoslavia's decision,
busily fortified Thrace against at-
tack of a German army on its Bul-
garian frontier and continued Ito
move civilians out of the line of
march.
Turkey still watched the situation
calmly, but with warlike prepara-
tions. Officially inspired newspapers
counselled the public to be calm, and
assured the nation defenses were
"adequate" for any contingency.
In German quarters in Belgrade

there were reports Berlin was grow-
ing impatient for Yugoslavia's de-
cision and might demand a quick re-
ply to the "invitation to join the
Axis."
Yugoslavs still carry over from
World War days a hatred of the Ger-
mans and, conversely, affection for
Britain and France, who helped at!
Versailles to amalgamate with the
Serbs the numerous minor and an-
tagonistic races which form this larg-
est Balkan nation.
Leaders of the nation's army of a
million still talk some of the possi-
bility of military resistance, but poli-
tical leaders in answer point to the
map showing five Axis countries ring-
ing Yugoslavia.

RAF's Cautious Campaign
Dropped As U.S. Planej
Provide Needed Reserve
Liverpool Target
Of German Attack
(By The Associated Press)
LONDON, March 14.-(Friday)-
German bombers, the howlin har-
bingers of spring, aimed furiously at
the ports of Britain last night and to-
day while the British doggedly fought
back and thankfully credited Ameri-
can aid with making possible a great
developing offensive of their own
against the Nazis.
The Germans lashed at Liverpool
and the Merseyside on the west
coast, at London, and at an uniden-
tified northeastern city, but the Brit-
ish said five Nazis already had been
shot down, bringing the bag to 17
since Wednesday night.
(The Germans said they were
raiding Glasgow, big west Scottish
port, but- the British were silent on
that score.)
The British said the attack on
the northeast city was its worst of
the war, featured by Nazi scream-
bombs and a fierce defensive barrage.
On the offensive side, the British
told of far-ra4ging attacks Wed-
nesday night and Thursday morning
on Germany and German-occupied
territories, and daylight assaults yes-
terday on the French coast.
In an informed quarter it was
made plain, with restrained exulta-
tion, that the days of Britain's "pen-
uriously defensive" strategy in the
air were over and done; that, by
President Roosevelt's signature of the
lease-lend bill, Britain is able at last
"to launch a really offensive war"
in the skies.
Explosions rolled across the Eng-
lish Channel this afternoon to sig-
nal a running broad-daylight Brit-
ish bombing attack upon the Nazi-
held French coast which was cen-
tered about Calais.
Nazis Claim New Weapons
Used In Assaults
(By 'The Associated Press)
BERLIN, March 13-The Germans
followed up a fiery assault against
Liverpool with a declaration today
that they have contrived new and
sharper air and sea weapons for "the
Battle of the Atlantic."
The hours-long attack on Liver-
pool-British west coast port of en-
try for American supplies-was made
by the Luftwaffe while the British
Air Force was carrying out deadly
overnight raids on Berlin, Bremen
and Hamburg. The German high
command reported "several hundred"
Nazi planes were sent against Liver-
pool.
At Cardiff, at least ten large fires
were started and at London, the
Purfleet docks wereerocked by ex-
plosions, DNB reported.
In addition, hangars, barracks and
searchlight batteries of ten airdromes
in middle and south England were
declared by the agency to have been
"effectively bombarded."
Informed quarters said the RAF
attackers killed 16 persons and in-
jured 37 in its first raid on Berlin
in 82 nights. Three were reported
killed and three injured at Bremen
and none at Hamburg. Only minor
damage was acknowledged at all
three places.

Brief Work Stoppage Reported
At Ford Rolling Mills In Detroit

I

DETROIT, March 13.-(Y)-A dis-
pute developed tonight as to whether
there had been an actual work stop-
page at a Ford Motor Company plant
this afternoon and meanwhile plans
were speeded for a hearing on the
petition of the CIO's United Auto
Workers for a Ford election.
At reports of a disturbance at the
Ford rolling mills and open-hearth
department-later described by Harry
Bennett, Ford personnel chief, as "a
little excitement"-police of subur-
ban Dearborn went to the plant about
noon today.
A Union spokesman said there had
been "a brief stoppage of work" by
about 3,000 employes who he said
were demanding reinstatement of

the rolling mills grew out of a "mis-
understood" statement he had given
Dewey regarding rehiring of the men.
"There was a little excitement for
a few minutes until I got there,"
Bennett said.
"If the mills were down for an
hour," he said in denying there had
been a cessation of work, "they'd be
down for a year."
Remarking that "it's plain that
something has to be done here," Frank
H. Bowen, regional director here of
the National Labor Relations Board,
announced that the Ford election
hearing had been set, tentatively for
March 24.
The hearing will involve the Rouge
and Lincoln plants of the Ford Com-
