(By The Associated Press)
LONDON, Jan. 16. -With a bright
moon and their first bombs to light
the #way, RAF crews battered at Ger-
man North 'Sea bases overnight, the
Air Ministry said today, bombing
docks at Emden and Bremerhaven
and leaving Wilhelmshaven "a waste
of flame."
For Wilhelmshaven, main base of
the Reich's North Sea Fleet, it was
called the 40th and greatest British
attack in' this air war 'which knows
no fronts.
The Air Ministry News Service
said the Wilhelmshaven raid was
carried out in two installments-from
8 p.m. to shortly after midnight and
then again from 1 to 6 a.m.
"It was more like stoking than
bombing," said one pilot. "We just
shoveled our bombs into the fires
and watched them increase."~
Homeward-bound airmen said they
could see the ruddy glare in the sky
for 130 miles. All bombers but one
came back, the British said, and it
messaged "mission completed" before
its radio went dead.
(The German High Command ac-
knowledged that. 20 persons were
killed and 35 injured in the Wilhelm-
shaven attack, saying "several in-
cendiaries flamed in the harbor sec-
tion." The British caused no "note-
worthy damage," its communique in-

'Illustrious' Damaged
By German Planes
BERLIN, Jan. 17.-(P)-Informed
sources said early today that German
dive bombers had attacked the Bri-
tish aircraft cairier Illustrious for
the second time in six days Thurs-
day, scoring three direct hits.
The same sources said the attack
took place "in a British naval for-
tress in the Mediterranean, where a
number of bombs were dropped."
(The 2,000-ton Illustrious made
port in the Mediterranean under
her own power Wednesday, after
being damaged in a ferocious attack
by German dive bombers on Jan. 10.
(Dispatches from Valetta, Malta,
told of a heavy raid by dive bombers
on that island naval base Thursday,
and presumably this is where the
Illustrious was attacked the second

PITTSBURGH, Pa., Jan. 16.-
Michigan's power-packed swimming
tean coasted to an easy 52-23 victory
over the University of Pittsburgh's
Eastern Association champions at
the Pitt Athletic Club tonight before
a small crowd of Panther fans.
Although the Wolverines broke
three pool records and captured
eight out of the nine first places,
their times were far from sensational.
Only in the diving event did Coach
Ben Grady's outclassed mermen have
a chance., Dick Amers won this for
the Panthers, while Mack Hayes, the
Michigan entry, finished third.
Sophomore Jim Skinner provided
the only excitement in an otherwise
dull meet. He was pushed and pushed
hard in his specialty, the 200 yard
breast stroke, by Pitt's Eastern col-
legiate champion, Herb Cosgrove, be-
forehe finally won out in 2:32.9.
Jim took a small lead at the first
25 yards but the courageous Cos-
grove quickly closed this up. They
were swimming even in the second
lap and then the smooth, rhythmical
stroke of Matt Mann's star pulled him
to a very short lead again.
Cosgrove swam only part way with
the butterfly stroke and astounded
the Wolverine team and the entire
audience by hanging right on to the
Michigan ace with his conventional
breast stroke.
Young Ted Horlenka broke one of
the three pool records by streaking
to victory in the 150 yard backstroke
in 1:41.2. beating Fedor and Soles of
The opening 300 yard'medley relay
provided the Wolverines with an-
other opportunity to crack a record

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 16-A deter-
mined University of Minnesota hock-
ey squad broke through Michigan's
hard-charging defense for four goals
at the Minnesota Arena tonight to
gain a 4-0 triumph over the Wol-
Local boy Bobby Arnold, the Go-
phers up-andicoming sophomore
center, paced the winners' attack
with four points on two goals .and
two assists. Collaborating with Arnold
on the offense was diminutive Babe
Paulsen, the Minnesota captain. Paul-
sen scored two goals.
Bert Stodden, fiery Wolverine de-
fense man, stood out on the back
line for the visitors and also paced
the Michigan offensive, such as it
was. The little senior's defensive play
was the outstanding factor in jpre-
venting the score for the locals from
becoming a good deal larger.
Michigan played defensive hockey
throughout the greater part of the
game as is indicated by the fact that
Burt Joseph, the Gopher goalie, was
forced to make only 11 saves during
the entire evening. But the Gophers
were determined to win and thus
partially atone for the defeat suf-
fered Saturday at the hands of Il-
Minnesota's opening tally came
at 12:06 of the first period when
Bob Arnold pushed his own rebound
between Loud's legs after a scuffle
in front *of the nets.
The second period was but six sec-
onds old when Arnold, again un-
assisted drove into the clear and dent-
ed the cords to increase the Gopher
lead to 2-0. Two minutes later, Arn-
old charged down the ice and gave
Babe Paulsen a pass which the Min-

Plans For Auto
National Defensive Needs
Compel Cancellation
DETROIT, Jan. 16.-Because of
the demands of the national defense
program there will be no National
Automobile Show this year.
In making this announcement to-
day, Alvan Macauley, president of the
Automobile Manufacturers' Associa-
tion, said the decision was reached by
the Association's board of directors
after consulting with all car produc-
ing companies.
He added that cancellation Of the
Show, held annually in New York,
usually in Grand Central Palace,
would not affect plans the individual
manufacturers may have to introduce
new models as usual next fall. There
will be new models, he added, but
explained that the industry had
pledged its whole support to the de-
fense program, and the model changes
will be regulated by the requirements
of the rearmament task.
The National Automobile Show
which has been held annually since
1900, first as a combined bicycle and
automobile presentation, is the only
showing sponsored exclusively by the
automobile manufacturers.

Sen. Wheeler States That War Department
Expects U.S. To Enter War April 1;
Democrats Appoint Byrnes, Glass
WASHINGTON, Jan. 16.-P)-Secretary of War Stimson asserted today
that if Britain should succumb to the Nazis, America would be in danger of
invasion from the air, and he urged Congress not to forbid President Roose-
velt to transfer American warships to nations lattling the Axis.
"I can foresee conditions under which the Navy could be transferred un-
der conditions very advantageous," he said.
He made these, statements as, with grim earnestness, he testified before
the House Foreign Affairs Committee in support of the pending bill author-
izing thePresident to lend, lease or transfer American-made fighting equip-
menb to England.
The subject of transferring warships came up when Representative Fish
(Rep.-N.Y.), committee member, asked him whether he had any objection
to inserting in the pending measure a clause forbidding the President to
give away naval vessels. The question, Stimson said, was really one for the
Secretary of the Navy but for his part he would not favor a ban on a trans-
fer because he could foresee conditions which might make a transfer advan-
tageous. w
Meanwhile. Herbert Hoover, in whose cabinet Stimson served as Secre-
tary of State, made public in New York a letter to Chairman Bloom (Dem.-
N.Y.) of the House Commitee suggesting that "much controversy and bitter-
ness" could be eliminated by #mendments giving positive definitions of
powers the President is to have. He himself, he said, favored "every prac-
0+ticable aid, short of war, to Britain,
Piro Stimson "but did not approve of "our joining
,', x: i the war."
However, he added, many patriotic
citizens, anxious to support the Presi-
I' dent, are held back by the possibility
that under the bill he could do such
things as: give away naval vessels,
send American ships into the war
.}x } zones, seize alien ships now "in sanc-
tuary in our harbors," or open Ameri-
...can ports for belligerent operations
and the repair of belligerent naval
'; tvessels.
Wheeler Leads Opposition
Senator Wheeler (Dem.-Mont.),
;<: leader of the Senate opposition to the
lease-lend bill, opened fire on Stim-
son by telling reporters:
"Every informed person in Wash-
ington knows that Mr. Stimson was
placed in the War Department be-
cause of his known pro-war attitude;
and every informed person knows
that high officials of the War Depart-
ment are today working on the as-
sumption that we will probably be in
the war by April 1."
COn . WheelerIt - was learned, meanwhile, that
the Democratic leadership has chosen
. ..' Senator Glass (Dem.-Va.) and Sena-
tor Byrnes (Dem.-S.C.) to fill two
Sarty vacancies on the Senate For-
?'' '??gn Relations Committee, which will
handle the lend-lease bill in the
Glass, although frequently oppos-
ing Administration fiscal policies, is
wholeheartedly behind the bill, as is
Stimson Orates
Stimson argued for the bill earn-
estly and emphatically. Many ques-
tions put to hirm by committee mem-
bers brought him to his feet to stress
his replies with sweeping gestures
and the emphatic shouted tones of
an orator addressing an audience.
He asserted that the present crisis
is far graver than that which con-
fronted the country in 1917, that he
was not so much interested in keep-
ing America out of war as in keeping
"war out of America," that the bill
would be of immeasurable value in
helping America
