Illinois To Provide
Stiff Competition
Michigan Pucksters Seek Initial Big Ten Victory
As Powerful Illini Sextet Invades Ann Arbor;
Starting Lineup Will Remain Unchanged
Sterle Leads Visitors In Quest For Title;
Game Will Be First In Series Of Four
The Michigan hockey team will make its fifth attempt at winning a Big
Ten'game tonight when it takes the ice at the Coliseum to face a truly great
Illinois outfit. The game will start at 8 u.m.
The Wolverines have lost four straight in Western Conference competi-
tion, all to Minnesota, the only other conference school which supports a
hockey team. The Illini have also played four contests with the Gophers,
emerging from the series with two victories, one defeat and a tie. They need
four victories over Michigan to clinch the title.
Consequently, the series, which consists of two games here this week and
two at Champaign next week, will be watched with more than casual interest
by Minneapolis observers. The Gophers would like to take a fourth con-
secutive Big Ten crown but they can't unless Michigan takes one or two
decisions from the Illini, a feat which would be something in the nature of
an upset;'to say the least. Two vic.--
tories for Michigan in the coming He'll Pace Attack Tonight
series would give Minnesota an undis-
puted Big Ten championship. If the -.
Wolverines take one victory, the Go-
phers will wind up in a deadlock with
the Illini. Likewise, if Michigan winsk
one, it wll cause great joy and no little
surprise in the ranks of local fans. -i

Hank is in for a busy evening since
Illinois has the reputation of being
one of the best stick-handling and
fastest-skating clubs in the business.
Johnny Gillis and Bert Stodden will
once again do full-time duty on the,

German forces in Bulgaria (northeast of Salonika) are but 65 miles
from the vital Greek port, upon which the fate of all Greece largely de-
pends. German seizure of Salonika would give the Nazis both sea and
air bases for attacks on the Suez Canal and other British Mediterranean
strongholds. But it is easily defended, dominating as it does the Balkan
valley approaches to the Aegean. It was from Salonika that the Allied
Armies under General Frenchet D'Esperey began an offensive late in
1918 which crushed Bulgaria in less than one month and forced he
surrender of Turkey in two.

Thailand's dispute with French

controversy settled temporarily by a
treaty in 1907, Mr. Edwin E. Neville,
former American Minister to Thai-
land ,asserted in an interview after.
his last University lecture here yes-
"Cambodia Province, which is com-
posed mostly of peoples with no eth-,

Saigon for assistance," Mr. Neville
"The French accepted the invita-
tion to insist on the previous fron-
tiers and in 1907 agreed to a treaty
which set the boundaries as they
are today," he said.
Thailand never became reconciled
to the agreement, however, he stated,
and this fact aroused the interest
of Japan who, as the leading power of
East Asia, assumed the responsibility
of mediating the dispute between
lesser nations.

Greek Port

ROME, March 5.-W)-A clash of British and German expeditionary
armies for Salonika, key to the back door of Europe, was envisaged by Rome
observers tonight after Virginio Gayda, the authoritative Italian commenta-
tor, declared nearly a whole division of Canadian troops already had reached
that ancient Greek city.
Gayda, writing in Il Giornale D'Italia of a reported plan by the British
to divert many divisions to the aid of Greece from the North African front,
viewed the prospect with equanimity.
He said Germany "is bringing a fresh and powerful contribution of forces
against the coalition of the British Imperial armies."
In Sofia. Bulgaria, 12 Nazi divisions-some 150,000 men-were reported
standing at Bulgaria's frontier with Greece tonight, with more on the way,
and the great Balkan war so long expected seemed all but begun.

this appeared very near. Only today,'

Debate Teams
Fraternities, Dormitories
Independent Men Vie
Thirty-six men's debating teams
swing into the intramural tourna-
ment this week representing frater-
nities, dormitories, and the Independ-
ent men, under the direction of Ed-
win Bowers, '41.
There will be three Round-Robin
debates on the proposition, "Re-
solved: That every able-bodied male
citizen in the United States should
serve one year's military service be-
fore he reaches the age of 21 years."
This will be followed by an elimina-
tion contest to determine the winner
of the year. The winners and run-
ners-up will be awarded trophies at
the Speech Honors banquet to be held

re-organized in order "to meet the
needs of a growing peace movement
on the campus."
The announcement was made by
William Clark, '42, newly elected
chairman of the Committee, who also
released the Committee's plan to hold
a campus peace strike on April 23.
A speaker of national importance
is expected to keynote the meeting,
which willbe held coincidently with
traditional, national April peace
strike on American campuses.
A statement of principles formulat-
ed by the Committee is summarized
as follows:
"To build a bulwark of defense
against the inroads of war and totali-
tarianism, the ,Michigan Anti-War
Committee offers a program of ex-
panded democracy to be achieved
through cooperation with trade un-
ions, cooperatives and other demo-
cratic progressive organizations. To-

diplomatic relations with Bulgaria,

The two mighty outside powers now
almost certainly coming to grips in
Southeastern Europe-Britain and
Germany-hurried their last disposi-
tions to meet the storm.
The prelude to violence-the week.
of diplomatic maneuvering-was run-
ning out.
Standing with Germany, as occu-
pied and passive or non-passive allies,
were Bulgaria and Rumania-and
Hungary as a potential highway for
Nazi troops.
Holding fast to their alliance with
Britain, so far as could be seen, were
Greece and Turkey.
Turkish diplomats in Sofia put it'
this way:
"We don't change our shirts every
day-we remain faithful to Britain."

Pleads For Aid
In Sea Crisis
Parliament Told Of Need
For More Ships, Men
In 'Battle Of Atlantic'
(By The Associated Press)
LONDON, March 5.-The greatest
need for ships and men in the proud
hiistory of British seapower was pro-
claimed to the House of Commons
today by the First Lord of the Ad-
miralty, A. V. Alexander.
It was an extraordinary plea to
Parliament for "many more ships afd
great numbers of men" . . . to fight
"the Battle of the Atlantic," which,
beginning now, may mean as much to
Britain as did last summer's fateful
"Battle of France."
Alexander remained silent how-
ever, when a member asked, as to
whether the government had "told
America that what we require even
more urgently than planes and money
is ships and still more ships."
From the back benches, Captain
A. S. Cunningham-Reid arose also to
warn the House of a "suicide fleet"
of U-Boats, small, fast, stripped of all
but essential gear and manned by
skeleton Nazi "voluteers of death"
which, he said, Hitler plans to turn
loose on British sea lanes. The U-
boats, he said, are not expected to
return home.
Alexander told the House the 50
American destroyers obtained last
year already have done good work
in helping to meet the U-boat menace
in escort work and in rescuing sea-
To resounding cheers, he added
that "American aircraft are now in

Mayor Jeffries Declares Stand
Against Strong Federal Control

"We must be resentful of a strong
federal government which wants to
control people at the source," Mayor
Edward J. Jeffries, of Detroit, warned
his audience at a meeting sponsored
by the Michigan Party last night at
the Union.
Alarmed about Federal dictation
-from remote places on defense mat-
ters, the youthful alumnus declared
that "if we are able to provide a local
environment which fits in with what
we want our local environment to be,

younger generation "'to take an in-
terest and participate in governmen-
tal activities as part of the selfish
responsibilities necessary to preserve
the democratic system."
Asked what he thought his action
would be ac mayor if the impending
Ford strike should occur, Jeffries in-
dicated that the problem had been
bothering him for some time and
as yet he had not reached a decision.
The mayor pointed out that his
power to deal with a strike situation
was limited, and said that he would
