fleeing Italian soldiers, swung tri-

military base in Albania, today while

Twenty-five days after Italy start-

At least 72000 Italian troops have
been forced out of the Koritza area,
ten miles inside Albania, a govern-

said to be threatening the second

rushed up Fascist reinforcements to
form a new battle line.
The General, who only 12 days ago
was given command of the Italian
campaign by Premier Mussolini, was
expected to prepare the counter-at-
tack with great care before beginning
it. Thus, there seemed no immediate
prospect of heavy action.

Who Governs
State In Lieu
Of Dickinson?
LANSING, Mich., Nov. 22-WI)--
Governor Luren D. Dickinson left the
state today and immediately the puz-
zle of "who is acting governor?" con-
fronted Michigan capitol circles.
Some said the state had its first
woman acting executive..
If it did, she is Mrs. Matilda R.
Wilson, widow of automobile manu-
facturer John F. Dodge. She was ap-
pointed lieutenant-governor this
week by the 81-year-old Dickinson
before he left to attend a national
Anti-Saloon League convention at
Mrs. Wilson made no attempt to-
day to exercise the prerogatives of
the governor's office. Neither did
Harry F. Kelly, secretary of state,
who was said by Attorney-General
Thomas Read to be the officer upon
whom the governor's duties should
devolve in Dickinson's absence.
Read contends Dickinson had no
right to appoint Mrs. Wilson or any
one else to be lieutenant-governor.

BERLIN, Nov. 22.-(A')-The four
men who hold Axis-Rumanian rela-
tions in their hands held extended
conversations today which foreign
diplomatic observers insisted would
make Rumania a fifth member of the
Rome-Berlin-Tokyo-Budapest Axis.
A conference among Rumania's
Iron Guard premier, General Ion
Antonescu, his foreign minister,
Prince Costin Sturza, and German
Foreign Minister Joachim Von Rib-
bentrop was followed by an extend-
ed meeting of the Rumanians with
Reichsfuehrer Hitler in Von Rib-
bentrop's presence.
Foreign observers were of the opin-
ion that if Rumania joins the Axis
military pact in writing, the ceremony
would be reserved for tomorrow as a
climax to the Rumanians' two-day
visit ending Sunday morning.
Not only is Rumania expected to
sign up, but also Slovakia, the Ger-
man-protected state left by dismem-
berment of Czecho-Slovakia, and
(A Berlin dispatch to the Bucha-
rest Tageblatt, purporting to quote
authorized German souruces, said the
Axis alliance implies "passive con-
sent" to passage of German~ troops
through any signatory country.)
Other developments in the war to-
day included a convoy said to have
been attacked contno results were
reported. Informed sources said a
2,000-ton ship off England's east
coast, near Harwich, was believed to
be sinking from bomb hits. Reports
indicated that German bombing
had destroyed an English railway.

Of Murray Coolly
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., Nov. 22-(P)
-The CIO wound up its third annual
convention today by adopting a reso-
lution calling upon the Department
of Justice to "institute a searching
investigation of employment by Ford
Motor Company of known Nazi
Another resolution termed special
legislation to deport Harry Bridges,
West Coast CIO leader, "an attack

The reolutions were passed after
pleas for internal unity in the organ-
ization were made by Philip Murray,
who was installed as the new presi-
dent, and John L. Lewis, who stepped
down from the CIO helm.
Resolution Passed
The Bridges resoution said a bill
now before Congress which would
order the West Coast leader's depor-
tation was "unconstitutional."
The same resolution asked that the
National Defense Commission, the
War and Navy Departments "exert
every effort to bring complete and
immediate compliance by the coin
pany with the Wagner Act and other
labor laws of the nation."
The Labor Board handed down sev-
eral decisions against the Ford Com-
pany in cases brought by CIO's Unit-
ed Auto Workers Union.
Another resolution introduced by
R. J. Thomas of the United Auto
Workers Union, promised Ford Mot-
or Company employes that the or-
ganizing drive already under way
"would be the paramount object" of
the reorganization in the immediate
The resolution declared efforts of
CIO officials would be pledged "to
the end that the reign of economic
dictatorship over the lives anti for-
tunes of the Ford workers shall be
brought to an end."
Election Greeted Coolly
Meanwhile the prospect of labor
peace through Philip Murray's elec-
tion to the CIO presidency today was
greeted coolly by AFL chieftains in
New Orleans - whose own union
leaders prepared for a challenge to
their authority.
President William Green of the
American Federation of Labor which
is in convention here said he "hoped"
Murray's selection would work toward
closing the gap between the AFL and
the Congress of Industrial organiza-
"All I can say is that we hope for
the best," said Green, whose previous
assertion that Murray's succession to
Lewis would mean nothing so long
as Lewis remained president of the
CIO's powerful United Mine Workers
was re-echoed by AFL Secretary-
Treasurer George Meany.

Tom And Evy Hang Up Cleats Today

Craven '43 Cringes In'Absentia
As. '44 Turns Against, Itself

There was so little sophomore com-
petition for "Black Friday" last night
that by 9 p.m. the freshmen started
"depantsing" one another.
The blase college one-year-olds
just failed to show up. A few gathered
behind the Economics Building early
in the evening and suucceeded in
beating up a few frosh but after that
"it was '44 all the way."
Following their schedule to the let-
ter, the neophytes ran their class
banner up the flag pole near the Na-
tural Science Building at 7:30 p.m.
and waited in vain for an attempt to
tear it down. An hour later, the
group, numbering more than 500,

But "'43 blood" was not to be found.
Several of them went downtown on
an automobile spree, overturned a
car, lifted a second on the sidewalk
and wedged a third in between two
trees. That completed, they fulfilled
an ambition of many years' standing
-crashing every movie house in town.
Others marched en masse to Mosh-
er-Jordan and Stockwell Dormitories
breaking into the latter through a
window on the first floor. Further
actions, however were thwarted by
Stockwell's house mother-the only
individual last night capable of tell-
ing the frosh what to do.
Before leaving a chorus of "The
Victors" was sung and a cheer for '44
was offered. The girls seemed to like
the spirit and took part in it them-
selves by shouting the praises of the
sophomores. Said one of them as the
boys left: "Bring them back for an
encore." aid another: "Why doesn't
this happen every night?"
After reconvening about the flag
pole the few freshmen who had worn
pants tore them off at the same time
cursing the "cowardly sophomores."
A few of the latter, who had posed as
frosh, were noticed shortly after-
wards and carried down to the Union
pool for a thorough ducking.
Earlier in the day Stan Summers,
'44, and Lloyd Partridge, '44, climbed
along the one and a half foot ledge
below the roof of Angell Hall to put
up a sign reading "Hell With '43."
University authorities ordered them
off declaring that "we don't want to
bother picking you up in the morn-
ing with a blotter."
The sign was later placed in front
of the Union just below the dummy
of a John Q. Sophomore hanging in
According to the police this "Black

expected. "We just left them alone,"
one officer said, "and, as far as we

Ohio State Homecoming Contest Matches

Ini Last Game Of Careers; Michigan
Quoted 4-5 Favorites Over Buckeyes
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 22.-Michigan's 1940 gridiron machine comes
to the end of the road here tomorrow.
Before more than 72,000 howling fans who will pack every available space
in the double-decked Ohio Stadium, the once-beaten Wolverines will wind
up their campaign against Ohio State's unpredictable forces.
Wild Columbus town anxiously awaiting this hard-fought battle, has
gone football mad tonight. This is the Buckeyes' homecoming. Hotels are
jammed. Late-comers without reservations can't even obtain cots to sleep
on. Scalpers are drifting up and down busy North High Street and doing
a land-office business.
There's noise, color and action around the downtown section. People
of Columbus have been waiting for this game for a long time. They feel
that the disappointing Buckeyes, whipped three times already, can turn
a dismal season into a good one by trouncing the high-riding Wolverines
Many look upon it as a vital game for the future of Buckeye coach
Francis Schmidt. Awarded the summer championship last September by
grid experts, Ohio has not lived up to expectations, and it is generally be-
lieved that the wolves will get to work-on Schmidt if Michigan does not
go down.
It was more than a week ago that the stormed Ohio ticket office had
to close shop and hang out the SRO sign for more than 10,000 Michigan fol-
lowers alone are piling into town to see Tom Harmon's "Old 98" in collegiate
action for the last time. There were that many tickets sold in Ann Arbor.

Wolfgang Pauli, Professor of The-
oretical Physics at the Technische
Hochschule in Zurich will deliver a
University Lecture on the atomic nu-
cleus at 4:15 p.m. Monday at the
Rackham Building under the aus-
pices of the physics department.
Professor Pauli, currently at the
Institute for Advanced Studies at
Princeton where he is carrying on
work in the theory of atomic nuclei,
is best known as the discoverer of the
Pauli Exclusion Principle which for-
bids two electrons within an atomic
move in identical orbits.
The ' Pauli Principle has led to a
satisfactory explanation of the Peri-
odic Table for the elements as well
as many results in spectroscopy. As a
result of this principle Professor Fer-
mi of Rome has built up a new set of
atomic statistics. Professor Pauli's
lecture will deal with the relation of
the choice of statistics to the mag-
nitude of the spin of the atomic nu-

With Greek capture of Koritza,
Mussolini may be tasting the first
bitter fruit of a disaster that could
destroy him.
The impact of this defeat upon
Italian public morale can as yet only
be conjectured. It could have far-
reaching effects upon the whole
course of the Axis-British war, of
which the Italian-Greek struggle is
an offshoot.
It is a reasonable assumption that
the wires between Rome and Berlin
are hot with urgent Italian pleas for
help. Not all the ingenuity of Fas-
cits official communique writers can

ian retreat, almost a rout. Rome's ex-
planation that the Italian opera-
tions at Koritza involved only "pro-
tective troops" cannot fool Italian
readers who recall communiques of
three weeks ago. Nor can such readers
fail to realize that it is Italy's back,
not that of Greece, which may be
broken unless Germany comes to the
aid of her Axis mate.
In a military sense, the fall of
Koritza is less serious than a simul-
taneous Italian retreat of as yet un-
known proportions in the Epirus sec-
