Opening Game

Outclassed Varsity Squad
Is Held To Three Hits
By Big Visiting Hurler
Fisher Uses Three
Pitchers In Contesi
Michigan's Varsity baseball team
turned up with an off day at the
plate yesterday as it dropped its home
opener to Notre Dame, 6 to 2. Se-
bastian (Subby) Nowicki, big right-
hander, went the distance for the
Irish and 'limited the Wolverines to
three hits, all singles.
The Notre Dame junior used a good
curve ball and a lot of brains to tie
up a Wolverine batting attack that
had brought them six wins in eight
games on the recent southern trip.
He was touched for one unearned tal-
ly in the first frame and gave up
another on two walks and a single
by George Harms in the fourth, but
for the rest of the contest he was
invincible, He gave up three bases on
balls and set down a trio of batters
on strikes in the nine innings.
Coach Ray Fisher used three hurl-
ers in an attempt to stp the Irish
hitters, but the victors collected five
hits and four runs off southpaw
Neil Muir, who pitched the first
four frames, and that was enough to
win. Little Mase Gould, Fisher's
other lefthander, relieved Muir after
Chuck Farrell, Notre Dame first base-
man, singled to open the fifth, and
the Irish scored twice on another
single when Farrell walked, went to
third on Ray Pinelli's single to right,
and tallied on infield out. Les Veigel
finished for Michigan, walking three
men in the last two frames, but was
not touched for a safety.
Andy Chlebeck, Notre Dame cap-
tain and center fielder, was the of-
fensive star of the contest. He hit
safely three times, once for two bases,
the only extra-base blow of the af-
ternoon, and stole three bases. It
was Chlebeck who opened the Irish
bid in the first. He led off with a
smashing single at shortstop Mike
Sofiak, stole second, went to third
on an infield out, and scored a mo-
ment later when Sofiak dropped Bill
Steppon's throw in an attempted
double play.
Michigan tied it up in their half
of the frame, however, when Davey
Nelson went to first after failing
toduck an inside pitch, and promptly
stole second. Don Holman laid down
a perfect bunt on the next pitch,

Southern Coal Operators Agree
To Negotiate Wagze Differences

(By The Associated Press)
An agreement to resume wage
negotiations in New York last night
was the answer of southern soft coal
producers and the CIO United Mine
Workers to President Roosevelt's re-
quest that the bituminous mines be
opened immediately.,
Dr. John R. Steelman, Federal
conciliator, announced in Washing-
ton that the conferences would be
resumed. The southern operators
withdrew from negotiations for the
eight-state Appalachian fields after
the northern owners had reached an
agreement with the miners calling
for a basic $7 a day wage scale. The
southerners demanded a sectional
wage differential. The soft coal mines
in the eight states have been closed
since April 1.
After bolting the New York negoti-
ations, the southern owners set up a
wage conference of" their own in
Washington and insisted for a time
that Lewis and the other UMW ne-
gotiators go to' the Capital City to
meet with them separately. Lewis
held out against negotiating inde-
pendently with the southern opera-
tqrs and demanded that the latter
return to the general Appalachian
conference. However, Dr. Steelman
disclosed yesterday that independent
negotiations had been arranged.
Thus, both sides appeared to have
made concessions.
Mr. Roosevelt stepped into the soft
coal stalemate Monday night, issu-
ing a statement which said that
"bituminous coal production must be
resumed, and promptly," because "the
Air Raid Plan
Is Organized
Volunteers Are Requested
For Defense Of State
LANSING, April 22.--(P)-Michi-
gan received orders today to recruit
a volunteer air raid defense system,
as the House of Representatives pre-
pared to vote Thursday on a bill giv-
ing the State Defense Council sta-
tuatory, power to act as the integrat-
ing agency.
Everett De Ryke, of Milan, execu-
tive secretary of the Council, disclosed
plans to istart immediately the task
of building a trained organization
to be alert for air raids, gas attacks
and to combat fires that might ac-
company any attempted invasion of
this hemisphere.
A skeleton plan, De Ryke said,
would establish 20 to 27 listening
posts for air raid alarms, geared to
spread the alarm by radio, telephone,
telegraph and courier, with a check-
ing, system as a safeguard against
"false alarms,"

public interest demands it and the
public interest is paramount."
In Detroit, two officials of the CIO
United Auto Workers issued a state-
ment saying they could not see that
an order of the Michigan Labor
Board invoking a 30-day "cooling
off" period applied to the union's
threat to strike at General MotorĀ§
plants. They contended that no de-
fense workers would be involved,
and hence they did not believe the
30-day law applied.
The union last week filed intention
to strike after saying that negotia-
tions for a new contract were un-
satisfactory. The union officials who
Issued the statement were R. J.
Thomas, president of the UAW; and
Walter P. Reuther, director of the
UAW General Motors department.
Meanwhile, in Washington a de-
cision was reached to postpone action
in the House of. Representatives on
similar "cooling-off" legislation spon-
sored by Representative Vinson

Athens Will .Be Next Goal
Of Panzer Divisions,
High Command Says
Nazis Deny Stories
Of Heavy Losses
(By The Associated Press)
BERLIN, April 23.-German spear-
heads are within sightof historic
Thermopylae Pass, German military
commentators said early today, with
the British in "full retreat" before
The German phrase was that the
fight had developed on a "verfolgung"
- a following through after a break
in resistance.
"And when we say we are follow-
ing through we mean the enemy is
running," said a military spokesman.
With Adolf Hitler's panzers rolled
up before the fabled pass, the Nazi
high command hoped to send them
swiftly over the 100 miles to Athens
and its port of Piraeus.
The Germans, at the southern edge
of the plain of Thessaly, seemed to
be in position to cut off the ap-
proaches to Athens soon and if that
is .accomplished any British who
might still be in the northern, part
of the country would be cut off from
the best harbors.
Lamia, old citadel near Thermop-
lae, is occupied by the German troops,
the high command announced. Now
- should the Germans repeat the
strategy they used in Yugoslavia -
they will throw a noose of panzer
divisionmen about Greece's neck, be-
tween the Gulf of Lamia and the Gulf
of Corinth.
Such -a maneuver, if successful,
would isolate some British and Greek
forces alongthe lower Pindus Moun-
tains, much as the Serbian troops
were trapped in the mountainous
area between Sarajevo and Mostar
just before their final surrender.
Simultaneously such strategy might
be calculated to cut off what the Ger-
mans claim is the British 'second
Dukerque" route toward the port
of Athens and other points of em-
DNB, German official news agency,
said Nazi reconnaissance planes
found eastern Greek harbors already
packed with ships of all'sizes - in
cluding motor boats, cutters and
smaller craft - busy shipping Brit-
ish troops out of the country.
German press dispatches indicated
the intense German air attacks had
been extended to the island of Crete.
It was reported that "about 20" en-
emy planes had been destroyed on the
ground at five Greek airports on
Crete in attacks yesterday. Air at-
tacks on Britain's island base Malta
were also reported continuing un-

Ports Of Southern Greece
(By The Associated Press)
ATHENS, Greece, April 23.-South-
ern Greece and ships leaving Greel
ports are being pounded by swarms
of Nazi planes attabking ahead of
Germany's panzer divisions, the gov-
ernment said early today.
In Athens itself sirens screamed
air raid alarms seven times in the
24 hours up to last midnight but the
Germans appeared to be concentrat-
ing on isolating Greece from over-
seas contacts. ' _
Vessels in the Gulf of Athens were
bombed and machine-gunned with-
out regard for their size, and official
reports, acknowledged considerable
casualties and damage on the coastal
