Note; Albanians Battle Greek Soldiers
(By The Associated Press)
VICHY, France, Oct. 26.-France moved officially into the Axis lineup in
Europe tonight with her government's announcement that Adolf Hitler and
Marshal Philippe Petain, France's chief of state, had agreed in principle
to work together to restore peace in Europe.
The announcement, endorsed by the French Cabinet, marked an historic
about-face for France and put this vanquished country on the threshold of
negotiations on concrete points of agreement with her German conquerors.
It followed a 75-minute meeting of the Vichy Cabinet where Petain and
his second in command, Vice Premier Pierre Laval, explained what they
talked about this week in conferences -
Prentiss M. Brown Scheduled
To Address Michigan Forum
By ROBERT SPECKHARD
A beautiful daughter and a loyal
son will greet Michigan's Democratic
United States Senator Prentiss M.
Brown, when he comes to the Mich-
igan campus to address the Michigan
Forum at 4:15 Wednesday in the
main ballroom of the Michigan Union.
The daughter is Miss Ruth Marga-
ret Brown, a graduate student in
the Department of History. The class
of '44 counts among its members the
Senator's son, James John Brown,
who is headed for a career in the field
The Senator, himself, will discuss
the issues of the current presidential
campaign when he speaks before the
Forum audience. The meeting is pairt
of a regular series of political speeches
by prominent party representatives
designed to present all possible view-
points in the coming campaign.
When asked to give a short biogra-
phy of her father, Miss Brown sat
down and with the memory of
a true historian, related the following
"My father was born and raised in
St. Ignace and began his career there
after he received his A. B. from Al-
bion College in 1911 and attended the
University of Illinois for a year as
a student of economics.
"As senator dad has supported the
New Deal fairly consistenly, though
he opposed the method used in Roose-
velt's attempt to enlarge the Supreme
Court. Reciprocal trade agreements
have received his continued support,
and he was instrumental in raising
the guarantee of Federal Deposit In-
surance from $2500 to $5000.
"Besides being on the Finance,
Banking and Currency Claims and
the Manufacturing Committees of
the Senate, father also heads a spec-
ial committee investigating reciprocal
tax relations between state and fed-
eral government instrumentalities.
"He has given his consistent sup-
port to agriculture, social and labor
policies of the New Deal.

sion centered upon the effects of pos-
sible government entry into the tim-
ber industry, taking up specifically

1Do u ble AttackSie
Quaker Lin Dfes
By DON WIRTCHAFTER
Michigan poured its mighty gridiron potion over a challenging Pennsyl-
vania menace in the Stadium yesterday and smashed all doubts of its great-
ness before 59,913 howling spectators.
Capitalizing on an early break and applying the wizardy of all-American
Tommy Harmon thereafter, the undefeated Wolverines staggered George
Munger's pride of the East with a thundering 14-0 triumph.
It was Michigan's double-barreled attack that knocked Penn's vaunted
forward wall into a state of dizziness yesterday. When Harmon. wasn't
slicing off tackle or skirting the ends, fullback Bob Westfall was bolting
through the center. If one didn't gain yardage, the other did.
All told, Tornado Tom streaked 19 yards for Michigan's first score, rifled
a brilliant pass to Ed Frutig in the end zone for the second, and successfully
converted on both occasions to add eight more points to his season's total
which now has swelled to 87,
A Band Of Battering Rams
With Michigan's powerful front line, from end to end, charging like a
band of battering rams, Harmon's publicized duel with Francis Reagan never
materialized. Terrible Tom completely stole the spotlight from Penn's
He out-ran, out-passed, out-punted and out-classed Reagan from begin-
ning to end. Carrying the ball 28 times, Harmon rolled 142 yards from
scrimmage, while the Quaker halfback gained but 10 yards in 12 attempts.
In passing, Harmon completed three out of eight for 51 yards. Thi's was
sufficient to hold off Reagan, who tossed home three of seven for 32 yards
with two going astray into waiting Wolverine paws.
Only in the punting department was Frank able to hold his own against
his sensational Wolverine rival. They each finished the afternoon with a
37-yard kicking average.
The Quakers were by far the toughest nut Michigan has been forced to
crack all year. On first downs, they.held the Wolverines even with 12. But
under fire, and when plays meant points, Michigan's brilliance shone through.
Within Two Yards Of Goal
In the fourth quarter, the gallant men of Munger, 14 points behind,
charged within two yards of the Wolverine goal, with two plays to score.
But a courageous Michigan line held Reagan's center-thrust without gain,
and then rushed quarterback Gene "Stinky" Davis fast enough so that the
Quaker's toss into the end zone on fourth down sailed where Westfall easily
battered it down.
Aside from that threat, however, Penn never got closer than Michigan's
18-yard line. Despite their even break on first downs, the Quakers strolled
only 130 yards along the rushing route, while Michigan plowed its way
The Wolverine cause appeared dismal yesterday when soon after the
opening kickoff, halfback Davey Nelson was forced out of the game with a
knee injury. Then in the second quarter, seven points out of front, the
Wolverines were riddled by a barrage of disheartening breaks. First Rube
Kelto, then Al Wistert and finally Capt. Forest Evashevski were wounded in
New Deal Spokesmen Answer Lewis
As Schism Develops In CIO Ranks
The Roosevelt Administration
struck back yesterday at John L. Lew-
is' denunciation of the New Deal
and support of Wendell Willkie while
evidence piled up that a deep politi-
cal schism had developed in the CIO
Stephen Early, Presidential secre-
tary, said Lewis had "chosen to go
down the lonely road." Many CIO
leaders. Early declared, had "rendit-
itely to make a political address in

The CIO, he said, was "torn with
dissentation, divided polically be-
cause its leaders seek to compel it to
support a poiltical party." The AFL,
he added, "has evolved and followed
a non-partisan policy."
