Wolverine Wrestlers

(Special To The Daily)
CHICAGO, Ill., Feb. 17-Control
of the rebounds under both baskets
gave Michigan a 42-29 victory over
Chicago in a raggedly payed game
before 1,500 fans in the Midway Field
House tonight.
The Maroons, banking practically
all their offense on bespectacled Joe
Stampf, jumped off to an early lead
but faded just before the end of the
half and were never again serious
contenders for their first Big Ten
What some hoped would be a scor-
ing dual between Stampf and Jim
Mandler failed to materialize when
the big Wolverine sophomore was re-
moved for Mel Comin with about
five minutes left in the first half.
Comm promptly dropped in two bas-
kets and a free throw as Michigan
pulled away to a 21-17 half-time
Stampf drove further toward the
Big Ten scoring title, dropping three
baskets and eight free throws for 14
points. The eight free throws brought
his season total to 56, seven over
the number with which he led Con-
ferenice free throwing last year.
Bill Cartmill, Capt. Herb Brogan,
and Mike Sofiak paced the big second
half, accounting for all but three of
Michigan's 21 points. Cartmill, Michi-
gan's most valuable man under the
baskets, trailed Stampf for high scor-
ing honors with 13 points and a free
Sofiak drew three personals in the
first half, but settled down to open
the second period with a 20-foot push
and the Wolverines pulled steadily
away, leading by no less than ten

Ineligibility Cripples
Wolverine Grappiers
Old man ineligibility stopped-over
in Ann Arbor again last night and
helped Indiana to a 17-9 victory over
Only four regular Wolverine grap-
plers worked last night against the
Big Ten Champions, but in spite of
these adverse conditions, it was one
of the best dual meets seen here in
a long time.
Stepping down into Capt. Bill
Comb's 155-pound spot, Art Paddy
gave the fans one of the best fights
of the evening. Against the Hoos-
iers' Dan Gill, Paddy continually
piled-up points but couldn't gain a
fall win. He had several near falls
in his 18-2 decision.
The most surprising match was
the one in the 165-pound class.
Sophomore Bill Cour;ight, in his
first varsity tussle held his own
against Angelo Lazzara, Big Ten
Champion. The fight was even at
4-4 until Lazzara gained a go-behind
in the last five seconds to win 6-4.
Ray Deane .and Jim Galles con-
tinued their wins by virtue of one-
point decisions. Deane, a regular

Festival Today
The snow came-so at 3 p.m. today,
500 to 1000 Michigan students will,
travel by sleigh, taxi, bus and foot
out to Carnival Hill in the middle of
Nichols Arboretum to take part in
the Michigan Union's much-delayed
extravaganza, the winter carnival.
It was an anxious Jack Grady, car-
nival chairman, who dropped his for-
ty cents into the telephone last night
to call Detroit's weatherman, Nor-
man B. Conger. The answer was
short, but consoling: Cloudy and
Colder, Lowest Temperature about 18
The show begins with a cross-
country ski race over a mile and a
half course and will be followed at
3:30 by a skiing demonstration by the
Ann Arbor Ski Club, headed by Bob
Lewis, Grad. The club members will
slalom and illustrate intricate turns.
After the special short-course ski
race for women the downhill tobbog-
gan race for distance will be held.
There will alsobe a women's division
in this race. There are no restrictions
on the size of the tobboggan or the
number of men.
Skis and tobboggans may be rented
from the Women's Athletic Building,

University enrollment figures re-
vealed a substantial decrease for the
second semester of the 1940-41 school
year as statistics released late last
night showed that 10,458 persons had
enrolled in all schools and colleges
up to that time as compared with
10,908 students enrolled by the first
day of the last semester.
The enrollment was also consid-
erably less than that of last year
when 10,682 students registered in
With four exceptions the percent-
age decrease was spread almost even-
ly among the various schools and
colleges of the University with the
School of Forestry and Conservation
suffering an approximate twenty per
cent decrease in enrollment as com-
pared with last year. In real figures
its enrollment dropped from 156 last
February to 124 this year.
The largest real decline in enroll-
ment was evident in the College of

Engineering, whose total enrollment
dropped from 1,977 for last year to
1,872 for this year.
A slight gain was noted in the Col-
lege of Literature, Science and the
Arts as registration figures topped
last year's total of 4,418 by 41 stu-
Had it not been for an increased
registration of women students the
real decline in registration would
have been considerably sharper. This
year's total enrollment of women was
3,047 as compared with last year's
enrollment of 2,989.
In the graduate school there were
94 fewer students enrolled this year,
a total of 1,189.
Compared wtih registration statis-
tics for last September, enrollment
decreased in nearly all divisions ex-
cept the graduate school, where en-
rollment moved up from 1,474 to
1, 523.

Quick End To Greek War
Expected As Probable
Result Of New Treaty
British May Lose
Balkan Foothold
(By The Associated Press)
Bulgarian-Turkish nonaggression a4
cord emerged tonight and by a few
statements in which the two Balkan
nations professed no more than sim-
ple amity for each other it threat-
ened to change the oourse of the
European war.
Reliable informants said the accord
meant, among other things:
1: A probable quick peace between
Greece and Italy, with Greece the
suppliant despite its victories in Al-
2. That Germany would steer clear
of the Dardanelles, vital link between
the Russian-dominated .Black Sea
and the eastern Mediterranean.
Major Obstacle Is Removed
(The strategic Dardanelles pas-
sage bisects Turkey, separating its
European and Asiatic parts.)
3. That a major obstacle to a Ger-
man march through Bulgaria to
Greece and the Mediterranean had
been removed, for the Turks had
promised in the accord not to attack
-A tangle of diplomatic maneuver-
ing lay behind the accord.
It was understood that in return
for Germany's promise to leave Tur-
key alone and keep away from the
Dardanelles, Soviet Russia would be
forced to seek return of the "lost"
provincesoftars ani Ardahan froi
Turkey should the Turks become em-
broiled with Germany over passage
of Nazi troops through Bulgaria.
In the eyes of most diplomatic ob-
servers the platitudes of the Bulgar-
ian-Turkish accord seemed to have
sealed- the fate of Greece and to have
squeezed Britain out of its last small
foothold in Southwestern Europe.
Axis Is Jubilant
German and Italian quarters joy-
fully interpreted the understanding
to mean that Turkey, despite its stat-
us as nonbelligerent ally of the Brit-
ish, would stand within its own fron-
tiers when and if the time comes for
Adolf Hitler's Balkan army to roll
through Bulgaria into Greece and to
the shores of the Mediterranean.
Reliable informants even doubted
that such a move by Germany would
be necessary to cause Greece to yield.
They felt the threat of it, without
any opposition to Germany from the
Turkish plan, would be enough to
stop the Greeks.
The kingpin of this latest victory
for Axis diplomacy is understood to
be Franz Von Papen, ace Naci diplo-
matist. It was said he played a big
part in bringing the Turks and the
Bulgars together. The negotiations,
culminated by the accord, have been
going on for weeks.

German Internal disorder Depends
On Military Reverses, Simons Says

Internal opposition to the Nazi
regime can be successful within Ger-
many only after the Nazi war ma-
chine has suffered very great mili-
tary reverses, such as the failure
of the invasion of Great Britain,
Dr. Hans Simons, noted political
science authority on the faculty of
the New School for Social Research
in New York City, commented in an
interview here Sunday.
"No one except he who has lived in
Germany in recent years can begin
to realize the extent of the tremen-
dous amount of power back of this
war effort by the Nazis, and only the
most fundamental failure in military
strategy will affect adversely that
effort," Dr. Simons declared.
KR+ m+nrmnrisinP-,rr, qav en-i nga

Any future European peace plan
must have a promise of social secur-
ity, no slavery of some national
groups for the benefit of others, and
a regulated disarmament, according
to Dr. Hans Simons of the New
School for Social Research in New
York, who spoke here Sunday in a
lecture sponsored by the Ann Arbor
chapter of the Committee to Defend
America by Aiding the Allies.
Dr. Simons is an exiled German
leader who served on the German
peace delegation to Versailles in 1919
and is a student of political science.
Director of the Institute of Political
Science in Berlin, he was District
Governor of Pomerania and Silesia
in 1929-30.
