Operation To Remove Bone Fragment
Will Keep Wolverine Pilot From Game
With Minnesota Gophers Next Week
By PAUL CHANDLER
A sorrowful Michigan campus learned today that Capt. Forest Evashev-
ski, pilot of the all-powerful and undefeated Wolverines, will not play
against Minnesota next week.
Evy will not lead the maize-and-blue football tribe on the field for its
most important contest of the season. He will be recovering from an opera-
tion he will undergo today to remove a fractured bone chip from the outer
end of his collar bone.
The blow will strike not lightly on a team that has depended through
five straight victories on Evashevski for powerful blocking, field leadership,
and supreme strategy as a play caller.
Ceithaml Gets The Job
To George Ceithaml, 195 pounds of backfield dynamite, will go Evy's
job against the Golden Gophers of Minneapolis Saturday. Behind Ceithaml
is plucky, 155-pound Harry Kohl. Both Kohl and Ceithaml have entered
combat before, and black-haired George emerged from the Pennsylvania,
game a kind of hero in his own right.
Michigan's cement-shouldered captain suffered his injury in that Penn
game as he threw a jolting block into 0
RAF Looses Heavy Attack
On Railroads Of Berlin;
Power Station Bombed
In Night Assault
LONDON, Nov. 2-(AP)--German
and Italian raiding squadrons were
beaten off short of London time and
aigain today and, at the end of another
week of aerial siege, the Air Ministry
declared the invaders' striking pow-
c r was faltering, that Nazi plane
l3ses were running ahead of the
British 3 to 1 and Nazi losses in air-
men 14 to 1.
Tonight the customary after-dark
assault opened with reports that a
raiding plane had machine-gunned
London streets in a busy shopping
area crowded with customers making
their week-end purchases.
Two bursts of a chattering gun,
according to British accounts of the
incident, cleared a congested street
of pedestrians, most of them women
carrying shopping bags.
Hostile planes, which had plunged
through a gale sweeping the Channel,
crossed the southeast coast early in
the night and headed for London.
In two smashes at Berlin official-
ly called the heaviest ever loosed by
the RAF, British bombers were de-
clared tonight to have repeatedly
bombarded three of the German cap-
ital's main railway centers and left a
mile-long blaze about a vital power
One raiding wave, the Air Minis-
try said, went into action shortly af-
ter 8 p.m. last night and stayed on
the job nearly two hours and another

today and fired away with bombs
for 40 minutes.

station, . returning pilots reported,
which formed the biggest torch left
by their tons of explosives and hun-
dreds of incendiary bombs.
Michigan students are more con-
servative than the rest of the coun-
try, a comparison between a poll
taken by the Bureau of Student Opin-
ion and Fortune Magazine's poll re-
veals. The student poll is directed
by Frank Bender, '43.
Of a carefully seletced sample of
574 students, 47.9 per cent prefer
Willkie for president, while the For-
tune poll shows that 45.8 per cent
favor Roosevelt. The student poll
indicates that 38.5 per cent support
Roosevelt whereas the Fortune poll
reveals the same percentage pledged

Today arrived the message of

said X-rays showed that a small

Golden Gophers Edge Out'
By SinglePoint, 13-12
EVANSTON, Ill., Nov. 2--0)--Still
undefeated, still untied, Minnesota's
Golden Avalanche roared along in
football's empire today in quest of the
Western Conference Championship
and national honors.
By the margin of a single point af-
ter touchdown, Minnesota, unable to
beat Northwestern in its home field,
since 1929, finally triumphed 13 to
12 over the hitherto-undefeated Wild-
cats before a nerve-wracked crowd of
48,000 spectators. It was Minnesota's
fifth straight win of the season.
Minnesota's victory, which left the
Gophers and Michigan the only un-
defeated and untied elevens in the
Conference, was achieved by a pow-
erful rushing game, one timely pass
and the place-kicking accuracy of
Joe Mernik, whose sucessful try-for
-point after the first Gopher touch-
down ultimately meant victory as
the Wildcats missed on two after-
Led by Bob Sweiger, who scored
both Minnesota touchdowns, George
Franck and Bruce Smith, the Goph-
ers established themselves as a dan-

title by whipping a valiant Northwes-

battle until the final gun.

most exciting battle royals witnessed

H Harris May Write
Concerto For Band
Roy Harris, famous American com-
poser and conductor, has been in
Ann Arbor since yesterday listening
to and studying the University Band.R
He is contemplating writing a spe-
cial piano concerto for the band, it
was revealed yesterday, and if he
does, his wife, a noted pianist in her
own right, will perform here with the
band at the world premiere of the +
on a new stature or diminish as
factors likely to determine the out-
come of the presidential contest. Two
in particular stand out now.
The first is war. Willkie, although
endorsing all possible military as-
sistance to Great Britain, emphatical-
ly contends that a provocative at-
titude toward the Axis countries will
lead to war if the President is re-
Ii reply, the President says that
any charge that he is heading toward
war is contrarysto all the facts in
the record. It is for peace he has
labored, he says, and will continue
to labor throughout his life.
The second great issue is the sum-
mation of months of controversy over
power in Washington. The Republi-
cans contend this issue is epitomized
in the proposal that, contrary to
tradition, the president is elected
for a third term. Dictatorship may
be the result, says Willkie.
Opens Here Friday
The genius of Tolstoy and Beethov-
en will be brought to the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre's screen when the
Art Cinema League brings the French
film "Kreutzer Sonata" here at 8:30
p.m. Friday for a two-day run.
All seats for the performance Fri-
day and Saturday will be reserved
and may be had on and after Thurs-
day by calling Albert Stutz, Grad,
manager of the Art Cinema League,
at 6300. Tickets will sell for 35c.
Made in France, with English sub-
titles, "Kreutzer Sonata" is based
on a story by Count Leo Tolstoy
and the music of Beethoven.
Roosevelt supporters answer that
the powers of the Federal Govern-
ment have necessarily been increased
to meet successive crises - the de-
pession, the war abroad and the ur-
gent necessity for rearmament. They
add that Congress still functions, the
election is free, the press is free,
speech is free, and they ask: "What
sign is there of an impending dicta-
torship?" Roosevelt's knowledge of
foreign affairs makes a third term
necessary at a time of crisis such as
this, they assert.

ATHENS, Greece, Nov. 2.-Greece's
hard-fighting mountain troops were
reported officially tonight to have
captured a hill four milesinside Al-
banian territory overlooking Koritza
after a furious bayonet charge against
the Italian invaders and reliable re-
ports said the Italians still have not
reached the main Greek defense lines
after six days of fighting.
There was no information in Ath-
ens, however, on just how far the
Italians have penetrated Greek terri-
tory on the Epirus sector, where they
have concentrated their drive.
But some reports from the front
said the Italians had made scant gains
in the last three days in this area
despite repeated attacks with tank
units along the road to Ioannina, cov-
ered by heavy Greek artillery fire.
Meanwhile the Italians reported
sending their crack "disperato"
squadron of bombers and fighters
against Greece today, planting bombs
from shore to shore of the invaded
kingdom, and said the only peace
the Greeks would get from them
would be by the sword.
"Italy has no intention of entering
into peace negotiations with Greece,"
an authoritative source said. ."The
Greek rejection of our ultimatum

motion. It will proceed to deal with
