For Mandler, who has carried the

Big Ten games, the battle will be a
"baptism under fire."
The baby-faced Chicago sophomore
proved he can score; he's been a
bear under both baskets; and he's
more than held his own with opposing
pivot men thus far. But if big Jim
can continue his high-grade basket-
ball in tonight's acid test, he'll have
more than fulfilled all of Coach Ben-
nie Oosterbaan's pre-seasonal hopes.
But it won't be an easy task. Eng-

Victors Over Britain

Secretary Urges Passage
Of Bill Authorizing Aid
To NationsBattling Axis
Threats To raft
Strikers Forbidden
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17-P)-Sec-
retary Knox said today Germany
would ultimately and inevitably seize
territory and bases in South America
if it defeated Great Britain, and like
Secretary Stimson he expressed fear
that a grave crisis would develop in
the European war in the next 60 or
90 days.
To prevent a British defeat, both
urged the House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee to approve the Administra-
tion's bill authorizing President
Roosevelt to lease, lend or transfer
American-made fighting materials to
the nations battling the Axis.
Knox said in response to questions
that his fears of a crisis in 60 or 90
days was speculation, purely. But,
he added, the "pressure" upon Great
Brtain was growing "greater and
greater." When Rep. Jonkman (Rep-
Mich) asked the exact nature of the
crisis, Knox replied simply:
"A crisis in which the defeat of
Great Britain is imminent."
It could come about, he said,
through the German submarine cam-
paign or the efect of the continued
German bombardment. He was, how-
ever, strong in his praise for the
manner in which British morale had
held up under the pounding of the
Nazis bombers.
Use Of Draft To Prevent
Defense Strikes Overruled
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17-(P)-
Draft headquarters ruled out today
any use of the selective service law
to bring pressure on defense workers
not to strike.
Brigadier General Lewis B. Her-
shey, acting director of selective ser-
vice, said a change in the classifi-
cation of a draft registrant because
of a strike would be "contrary to the
intent of the law." He added:
"The selective service system is not
in a position to use induction as a
threat to force a man to do something
or tonrestrain him from a course of
Richard T. Frankensteen, negotia-
tor for the CIO-United Automobile
Workers, had protested in a telegram
to President Roosevelt that a ruling
of the California draft board carried
an implied threat that emplyes of
the Ryan. Aeronautical Company,
San Diego, Calif., might be drafted
if they struck.

Preiss Urges All Measures
Necessary To Assist Britain

Ley Reveals Nazi Conspiracy
In Pocket BattleshipIncident
i ,-

American aid to Great Britain
should be determined solely by mili-
tary expediency, Prof. Lawrence
Preuss of the political science de-
partment declared- yesterday in an
He believes that we should do ev-'
erything possible at a given time
which is feasible. If an outright de-
claration of war is considered by mili-
tary authorities necessary to support
the British he feels that this country
should intervene.
Or if military advice is only to
supply partial aid like an air force or
part of the navy, or even less merely
continuing our present state of non-
belligerency, he would similarly sup-
port those measures.

to infringe relatively minor provisions
-of international law when the obser-
vance of law in detail would lead to
the total destruction of law and ord-
er which would be the natural result
of a German victory."
"Our condition is such that we can
no longer observe legal technicali-
ties. We must face a condition which
a state must resort to if it is to live,"
he asserted. I
When a nation commits acts of
war, everything depends on the other
parties. The other party will not con-
sider whether international law is
violated but whether she can gain or
lose by going to war.
If Germany feels that a declara-
tion of war against us will enable her
to cut off supplies to Great Britain

The Nazi conspiracy to back a
Uruguayan revolt a year ago last
October was revealed in an interview
to The Daily yesterday when Harry
Ley, former Michigan resident who
has spent the past six years in Argen-
tina, told the story of the sinking of
the Graf Spec the way Latin America
heard it.
Ley, who is band director at Ward
College in Buenos Aires, declared that
his account of the news story, which
was hushed up by the governmeht
when it broke, was given to him by
reliable authorities and is accepted
as truth throughout Uruguay.
At the time of the scuttling of the
pocket-battleship, Ley recalled, there
were about 30 German *dead, and
burial services with full military hon-

ed for a revolt that was in the pro-
cess of being engendered by Nazis in
Uruguay. Later investigation re-
vealed that the German dead had
actually been buried at sea.
Because of possible international
complications, the situation was
hushed up at the time. However, the
current state of public opinion in
Argentina, Ley asserted, is definitely
pro-ally. There are still Nazi-con-
trolled newspapers published through-
out the country, and an infiltration
of Nazi propaganda, Ley pointed out,
but the sympathies of the people
seems to be swinging heavily to-
wards the English. Since the Pan-
American conference last year, and
since the United States' concentrated
attempts within the last few years
to establish close relations with South
