Attack

Against AAU Title

Wolverines Are Underdogs
With Strong Towers Club
Team Favored To Win
Kiefer, Jaretz Head
List FromChicago
By WOODY BLQCK#
An unblemished record-a Na-
tional AAU title--and all the pres-
tige you could find hang by a thread
as Michigan stiffens for the 'all-out"
attack of the Chicago Towers cluib
and a host of other aquatic stars
gunning for honors in the AAU meet
to be held here today and tomorrow
in the Sports Building pool.
The 19 teams and 87 competitors
gathered for this carnival of chain-
pions splash into action at 3 p.m.
in the qualifying heats this afternoon
with the finals of five events.sched-
uled for ,7:30 p.m. today, the re-
mainder tomorrow.
Kiefer, Jaretz Threaten
Thrust into the strange role of un-
derdog for the first time this sea-
son, Matt Mann's Big Ten and Na-
tional Collegiate Champs will have
the battle of their lives to roll up
enough points to outscore the Towers
squad led by the two .fastest tor-
pedoes in swimming-Adolph Kiefer
and Otto Jaretz.
Walkaway-winners of the Confer-
ence title, victors by a slim three
points in the Collegiates, the Wol-
verines have their backs to the wall
in this-the last meet of the year.
If they come out punching and[
punching hard enough, there is a
chance for the Mannators to complete
their second successive "grand slam"
of winning all three major titles in
one season.
Victories Streak At Stake
But if they slip anywhere along
the line in this two-day test of nau-
tical strength-if the little guys whose
teams won't come close to the title
,neak off with enough points to shove
Michigan down farther-one of the
longest undefeated strings ever re-
corded will go down the drain.
First places have already been con-
ceded any race Fiefer enters and
just about everyone Jaretz paddles in.
Kiefer is the backstroker of this
great duo. He holds every world rec-
ord on the books with a stroke that isI
smooth as silk and a pair of the
"whippiest" feet in the business. ?
A symphony of rhythm, he'll un-
doubtedly dominate the field includ-

feated champion, Mark Follansbee,

London=-13erlin
Claims Clash,
Simpson Says
By KIRKE L. SIMPSON
Lowering war clouds in the Balkans
tend to obscure, but do not hide,
a fantastic dispute between London
and Berlin over progress of the Brit-
ish-Axis war in the Atlantic.
. Against a British report that ship-
ping losses by enemy action had
dwindled to 59,000 tons in the week
ending March 23, Berlin 'informed
circles" have put a counter claim
that 367.000 tons of vital British car-
go space were destroyed in the At-
lantic in that same week. There is no
reconciling those figures. Yet the
trends of the war in the Atlantic
which they reveal or conceal will do
more to shape world destiny than the
Balkan tumult, whatever its upshot.
If the German figure were any-
where near correct, it would certainly
be the heaviest blow struck at Eng-
land since France was knocked out
of the war. For its timing as well
as its seemingly fantastic exaggera-
tion, however, the Berlin outgiving
s subject to suspicion.
Perhaps it was intended to affect
the strained situation in the Balkans
or the question of Japanese coopera-
:ion with the Axis team to divert
American attention from the sea
Ieige in the Atlantic.

Step Threatens Break
Move First Of Kind
Since World War
WASHINGTON, April3.-(IP)-In
a step just short of a break in re-i{
lations, the United States today
linked Italy's high ranking Naval At-
tache here with widespread sabotage
of Italian merchant ships and blunt-
ly told his government to call him
home immediately.
The move, ordered by President'
Roosevelt, was the first of its kind
since World War days when German:
and Austro-Hungarian diplomatic
and military officials were forced out
of the .country on charges of foment-
ing strikes and other anti-American
activities.

DETROIT, April 3 -(A)- Federal, Court -forbade the CIO's United

The Company's application for the injunction, a Union statement said,
was a "deliberate violation of its pledge to make no effort to open the Rouge
plant during a period of conciliation." A temporary injunction was issued
by Judge Arthur J. Tuttle.
For two days the giant Rouge plant, employing 85,000 men, has been
closed because of the UAW-CIO strike. In a surprise move tonight the

restrain the UAW-CIO from "threat-

Judge Tuttle, ruling there was a
"great emergency" at the Rouge
olant, granted the order.
The union statement, from R. J.
Thomas, President, and Michael F.
Widman, Jr., chairman of the UAW-
CIO's Ford Organizing Drive, con-
demned the injunction as "unjusti-
fied." A motion for dismissal will be
made tomorrow, Thomas said.
On Wednesday, when the strike
began, Gov. Murray D. Van Wagoner
announced that the Company and the
Union had agreed to a plan under
which no attempt would be made to
open the Rouge plant during the
mediation period.
When asked tonight whether the
Company would seek to bring pro-

A reouest of an AFL Federal
Local Union, a labor group organ-

was denied by Dewey on the
grounds the union was not on strike.
The union, addressed last night
at a mass meeting by Homer Mar-
tin, former xresident of the UAW
who led that group out of the AFL
into the CIO, claimed it had a ma-
ibrity of Ford workers and
launched a aek-to-work move-
ment.
I. A.,Capizzi, Ford attorney, said:
"I can't answer that. I have been in
court and out of touch with the fac-
tory officials."
Factory heads could not be reached
for comment.
Capizzi said, however, that it was
his opinion that the injunction would
permit Company officials 'and em-
ployes specified under the agreement
to enter the plant without passes.
Passes are being issued by State Po-
lice guarding the plant.
