Sea Offensive; Germans

Wolverines Turn Tables
On Purple With Sizzling
Second-Half Drive, 45-39
Trackmen Enter
Triangular Meet
A gang of Northwestern huskies
applied weight and brawn to the im-
proved Michigan cage attack last
night, but by the time 2000 spec-
tators, who turned out to witness the
home finale, straggled out of Yost
Field House, the Wolverines had
chalked up their fifth Big Ten vic-
tory, 45-39.
It was a sizzling second-half at-
tack, much like the one displayed
against Illinois on the same floor Sat-
urday night, that enabled the Oos-
terbaan charges to turn the tables
on the 45-34 licking the Wildcats
handed them earlier this year.
Sofiak Spurs Wolverines
Three points behind entering the
second half, the inspired Wolverines,
spurred on by battling Michael Sof-
iak, and shuffle-footed Bill Cartmill,
turned on the heat and left the visi-
tors with their eighth Conference loss
of the season against two wins.
The veteran seniors, making their
final appearance on the Field House
court, accounted for 27 of the Michi-
gan points. Little Mike dumped in
four baskets and five foul shots in
the final spurt to lead the Wolverine
scoring with a 16 point total. Cartmill
finished second with 11.
Michigan Attack Begins
Once the Michigan attack began
rolling, the Northwestern quintet, re-
sembling a weight-lifting outfit more
than a cage team,- found their
strength no match for the Wolverine
speed and deception. Strapping Don
Clawson, 220 pounds of gridiron
brawn and a scratchy head, steamed
up and down the floor like a runaway
horse, but his efforts were all in
vain. Michigan was on its way and
couldn't be halted.
The only thing that kept the Wild-
cats in the ball game was the eagle
eye of Bob McCarnes, the Logans-
port, Ind., flash, who split the nets
nine times for an 18 point total to
make him high scorer for the eve-
ning. ,
Michigan sprang to an early five

Thinclads To Meet
State, Normal Today
Michigan will send its mighty
track reputation under the heavy
fire 61 a pair of home-state rivals,
Michigan State and Michigan Nor-
mal, in their annual triangular meet
tonight at the Spartans' spacious
Jensen Field House.
But from all. advance indications
it appears that State's most import-
ant contribution to the meet will con-
sist in the furnishing of the site. The
Spartan squad, weak at the season's
start, was rendered even more anem-
ic by the injury of their ace all-
around performer, Walter Arring-
ton, and tonight's meet stacks up as
a triangular clash in name only.
In reality the Hurons from near-
by Michigan Normal will provide
most of the opposition for Coach Ken
Doherty's cindermen, who will be
striving for their second straight win
of the current indoor campaign. And
stiff opposition it will be, too, for
Michigan's Ypsilanti neighbor ranks

As Fire Breaks Out
Diligent law school students were

Enactment of the bill is not "an
absolutely safe course," the petition
cautioned, but, failure to pass it "may
be the most dangerous of all.

Enlarged U-Boat Activity
Will Reach Full Swing
In Next Two Months
Thailand, IndoChina
Agreement Is Near
MUNICH, Germany, Feb. 24.--4R)
-Adolf Hitler himself reported to-
day that German sea raiders had
sunk 215,000 tons of shipping in the
past two days and he proclaimed
that this was only the beginning of
a sweeping naval offensive to reach
full swing in the next two months.
He said Germany's undersea war-
fare had been restricted until re-
cently to ~ the operations of "so few,
submarines" while new crews were
being trained to go to sea in force.
The announcement of sinkings by
surface and undersea raiders in the
past two days (later increased as to
217,300 tons by DNB, official news
agency) gave grim point to the
Fuehrer's threat of a grand offens-
Hitler credited Italy with tying up
large British sea forces, as wep~ as
land forces and planes, in the Medi-
terranean area while Germany pre-
pared for her naval onslaught.
"Our struggle at sea only now can
begin," he said. "The reason for this
lies in the fact that, to begin with,
we wanted to train new crews for
U-boats~ which are now ready.
"There should be no doubt of that.
Just two hours ago I received infor-
mation from the navy high command
that just now reports on the last two
days had come in during which high
seas forces and U-boats sank 215.000
tons of "which U-boats alone sank;
190,000 tons,, among them one con-
voy of 125,000 tons which was de-
stroyed yesterday.
"Those gentlemen (the British),
however, must be prepared for still
bigger events in March and April.
Then they will find out whether we
slept through the winter or who made
use of time.
Far Eastern Mediation
Reported 'Near At Hand'
TOKYO, Feb. 25.-()--Koh Ishii,
spokesman of the cabinet 'informa-
tion bureau, announced today that
an agreement was "near at hand" in
the Japanese mediation of the con-
flict between Thailand and French
He gave no details of the proposals
under consideration or the sort of
settlement expected, but deplored
newspaper reports from Saigon to the
effect that fighting might be re-
sumed. In view of the continuing
peace negotiations and yesterday's
10-day extension of the armistice to
March 7, these reports obviously ex-
aggerated the situation, he said.
