Bombers Blast
British Shipping
(By The Associated Pr'ss)
BERLIN, Nov. 8.-An entire British
merchant convoy of from 15 to 20
ships totaling 86,000 tons has beenl
destroyed in the very middle of Bri-
tain's vital north Atlantic lifeline by
German surface warships, according
to today's Nazi claims.
This success in the air and sea
counter-blockade of Britain apparent-
ly came three days ago, but the
heightening tempo of the campaign
was reflected in the report of an
informed source that today Stuka
dive bombers blasted 31,000 tons of
shipping to the bottom out of strong-
ly-protepted convoys and damaged
23,000 tons.
Stuka bombers, the terror which
Germany unleashed against her op-
posing lines in her sweep through the
low countries and France, are rang-
ing around the British Isles and
more than 300 miles to sea in\ the ef-
fort to choke off Britain's suppplies.
Six ships were reported to have
gone under today under the Stukas'
bombsights, two of them "somewhere
west of Ireland.' Yesterday, accord-
ing to the high command, two Brit-
ish ships were sunk by aerial bom-
bardment and a 10,000-ton British
cruiser was among several ships re-
ported damaged by bombs.
Such blows against the shipping
of a nation which must import and
export in orderdto live and Mfigh
represent the direst threats to the
convoy system, which saved Britain's
world war commerce and upon which
she relies in the present conflict.
Various bits of unofficial informa-
tion indicated the convoy was at-
tacked Tuesday about 1,000 miles
out of Newfoundland on the main
line of supply from Canada and the
United States.

Student Male
Perilous Climb'
Defying 14 doctors, 7 policemen,
10 powerhouse employees, 9 firemen,
and 40,000 volts, an ill University
Student climbed to the top of the
transformers at the University power
plant, yesterday morning and re-
mained there for more than 30 min-
He was being taken from the Health
Service to another hospital for treat-
Ment when he ran to the transformers
and climbed to the top, despite ef-
forts to restrain him. Power was im-
mediately cut off all over the cam-
pus so that he and would-be rescuers
would not be endangered.
Rescuers were balked at first by
his steadfast refusal to come down.
More than once ladders and ropes
were placed against the transformers
only to be drawn up to the top by
the student and held there.
The danger of his .escapade can be
realized that if he had touched the
ground and the wires' of the trans-
formers at the same time he would
have been immediately electrocuted
by 40,000 volts.
He finally came down when all the
rescuers climbed up on the transform-
er at one time, forming a human net
so that he was forced down. He then
left with Dr. Agate and Dr. Him-
ler, for a private hospital.
Lights, adding machines, cash reg-
isters, elevators, clocks and all other
machines driven by electrical power
on campus stopped working for a
short period while he was forced down.

Hears Noted
'Child Delinquency Bred
By Adults,' Dr. Hulbert
Tells Personnel Group
Convention To Hear
School Panel Today
Adults breed delinquency by speak-
ing disrespectfully of other adults in
he presence of children, according to
Dr. Harold S. Hulbert, '14M, psychia-
trst of Chicago, Illinois, who lectured
before the Tri-State Conference on
Pupil Personnel yesterday in the
Rackham Building.
Disrespectful opinions of the op-
posing parties in a political campaign
cause children to believe that the
laws of the winning party are not
deserving of respect and should not
be obeyed. Freedom of speech is not
such, said Dr. Hulbert, that we must
listen to words that breed disrespect.
Dr. Meyers Appears
Dr. Garry Cleveland Meyers, ed-
itor of the magazine, "Children's
Activities," told the educators that
each step of learning in academic
courses must be adjusted to the ability
and skills of the learner. He warned
against the idea. of some teachers
that vocational curses like woodwork-
ing are for "dumbells."
In an afternoon lecture Dr. Hugo
Masters, Consultant in Adult Educa-
tion at the W. K. Kellogg Institute,
asked for the development of the
responsibility of the parent in the
school program, This responsibility,
said Dr. Masters, must be worked out
by the school and the parent cooper-
atively. A critical view of what is
being done in the name of education
should be developed.
Judge Kelley Speaks
At the banquet in the Union Judge
Camille Kelley of Chattanooga, Tenn.,
spoke on "The Adventure and Re-
sponsibility of Present Day Living."
Judge Kelley questioned the belief
that the psychologist means unre-
strained freedom when he advocates
giving the child free-rein in his af-
fairs. "There is no freedom without
control," said Judge Kelley, "and
when psychology pleads that the
child should have freedom he means
that the child, with the aid of mod-
ern inventions like the radio, should
develop control of his own."
The Convention will hear a panel
at 9:00 a.m. in the Rackham Build-
ing today on "How Can the School
be Adjusted to the Physical, Mental,
and Emotional Life of the Individ-
ual Child.'Dr. William Sadler, Spec-
ial Consultant in Psychiatry at the
W. K. Kellogg Foundation, will speak
at the closing luncheon at 12:30
p.m. in the Union.

Entire Greek Line
Is Claimed Intact
(By The Associated Press)
ATHENS, Greece, Nov. 8.-Greek
troops were reported tonight to have
pushed back the invading Italians
along great sections of a mountain-_
ous battle front, and at the end of
12 days of this new war, the defenders'
postion was declared by neutral ex-
perts to be as good or better than it
was on the first day of the Fascist
The Italians, according to available
military information, had been
thrown back both in the center sector
and on the northeastern or right
GreJ. wing in the territory of Al-
bania - the country from which the
invasion was sprung.
Italians Trapped
In the center, a large but unde-
termined number of Italiansuwas re-;
ported trapped some days ago, and
the action now appeared to be aimed
at their encirclement and possible an-
nihilation or capture.
The Greek high command itself
had announced that Italian attacks
on the Greek left, in the theatre near
the Ionian Sea, had been repulsed.
Thus the entire Greek line appeared
to be not only holding firm, but to be
pressing back the Italians in a great
rough arc.
The day's actions were heavy and
artillery fire boomed intermittently
through the high, rugged terrain
of the defense line. The Italians had
brought up heavy mechanized forces
Greek guns were concentrated to pro-
tect the coastal route to Ioannina,
stragetic city.
No Break
Neutral observers said they could
find no evidence of any break in
Greek communications or supply and

was high - due in part, perhaps, to
British aid. ;

It's the tale of two unbeaten and untied teams, two gridiron powerhouses
