Displaying overwhelming strengtl
in the field events, Michigan's mighty
track team swept to a decisive 62 1-3
to 41 2-3 dual meet triumph ove
Ohio State's powerful Buckeyes last
night at Yost Field House.
Although the Scarlet and Gray in-
vaders managed to outscore Coacl
Ken Doherty's defending Western
Conference champions in the eight
track events by a two point margin
they were unable to stem a flood of
Wolverine points in the other fou
events. Copping first in the high
and broad jumps, the pole vault and
the shot put, Michigan amassed the
startling total of 29 1-3 points to the
Buckeyes' meagre 6 2-3.
That was the story of the meet
statistically-and therein can be
found the primary reason for Michi-
gan's supremacy. But from the view-
point of the more than 2,000. en-

TOKYO, March 2-(Sunday)-The
failure of the French Ambassador to
keep a scheduled appointment with
the Japanese Foreign Minister pro-t
longed today the crisis in Japan's
mediation betwen French Indo-China1
and Thailand, made more acute by
an expired ultimatum.
Foreign Minister Yosuke waited at
hi sresidence for six hours, from 4 un-
til 10 p.m., last night, for ambassador
Charles Arsene Henry to kep an .ap-
pointment which authoritative quar-I
ters had hinted might end in ac-I
ceptance of Japan's final terms.
But the conference did not occur,
and observers said they believed thisI
development indicated a French hoper
of postponing a showdown.I
It was presumed Amebassador Hen-
ry had received last-minute instruc-I
tions from the government at Vichy
which at least postponed his antici-I
pated talk with Matsuoka.I
Consequently Japan still was not
officially informed of Vichy's final
decision despite authoritative hint,
widely displayed in the press, that
the French had agree dto the basic+
terms of Japan's compromise pro-.
posal, made in an ultimatum which
expired at midnight Friday, Tokyo

Observers believed the Japanese
were hesitant to resort to the "force-

But the first and gravest questions
to Bulgarians were the fear of in-

Aid Britain To Protect Nations
Of Latin America, Remer Says

The problem of preventing the Axis
powers, if triumphant, from gain-
ing control of South America through
economic penetration is so difficult to
solve that it is one of the arguments
for supporting Great Britain immed-
iately, according to Prof. Charles
Remer of the economics department.
Professor Remer, a recognized au-
thority on international trade, is
quite pessimistic about South Ameri-
ca in the event of an Axis victory.
Convinced that the situation can not
be considered apart from conditions
beyond the oceans, he believes, that
the concept of self-sufficiency with-
in this hemisphere is really an ex-
tension of isolationism. "To accept
regionalism is a victory for totalitar-
ianism and exactly what Germany
wants for the moment," the econo-

Hitler's Plans May Be Hurried
By War Needs, Simpson Says

(Associated Press Staff Writer)
The month of March, reputed in
respect to weather to go out like a
lamb when it comes in like a lion,
does not seem destined to live up to
that reputation so far as events of
the European war are concerned.
It has come in like a lion with ten-
sion high in the Balkans and Ger-
many reporting sea-war successes
against Britain. It bids fair to go out
roaring with action certainly in the
Atlantic and possibly also in the Bal-
kans and the far Pacific.
Germany reached its high-water
mark in the World War in March,
1918. The Kaiser's armies all but
cut the French and British apart on
the west front in that spring drive.
Thev risked everything on that final

ish and neutral economists gauge
German food and oil resources aright.
Nazi leaders from Hitler down have
said repeatedly they are prepared for
a war of any duration. Months ago,
however, Americans back home from
Berlin told this writer of their doubts
on that score.
They saw possibilities of an upris-
ing in Germany only distantly. It de-
pended,, they believed, on either of
two factors.
Even iron-fisted Nazi suppression
at home could not avert the many
rumblings of discontent, they be-
lieved, if the German army sustained
a disastrous defeat. They felt cer-
tain it was fear of just such a defeat
that withheld a German attempt to
invade England last summer or early
fall when other conditions seemed
right for the attempt.
