Varsity Wrestlers Defeat
Northwestern In First
Big Ten Game Of Season
Swimmers Beat
N.Y.A.C., 4-36
It was talent against heart again
in Yost Field House last night, and
the talented ones from Wisconsin
won the basketball game, 40-30.
The valiants of Coach Bennie 0os-
terbaan played with their backs to
the wall for 40 toilsome minutes, but
their Badger rivals were too good and
the Wolverines dropped their fourth
straight Big Ten contest and thus
plunged deeper'into the gloom of the
Conference cellar.
Team Works Hard
No team ever worked harder to
win a ball game. The Wolverines
scrapped all the way, wrestled for
the ball with their bigger opponents,
took 62 shots at the hoop, many of
them of the do-or-die variety, and
even took advantage of some lax
refereeing in an effort to outrough
the Cardinals.
In fact, little Mike Sofiak went so
far as to get himself ejected from
the game for the Varsity cause. The
tiny veteran became all tangled up
on the floor with Wisconsin's Ted
Strain in a scramble for the ball
during the closing minutes of the
game, and when Mike's fist ended
up in the vicinity of Strain's chin,
Referee Bill Haarlow rewarded the
fiery Wolverine's efforts by giving
him the heave signal and Strain two
foul shots.
Too Much For Varty
Coach Harold "Bud" Foster's hoop-
men had too much for the Varsity.
With Strain calmly setting up the
Badgers' attack from his position in
the backcourt, and omnipresent Gene
Englund controlling the ball off both
backboards, Michigan never had a
The Wolverines hopped off to an
early 3-1 lead in the first minute of
play, but once Englund swung into
action, Wisconsin left Michigan far
in its wake. The towering Badger
pivot man threw in six straight
points, while a bewildered Jim Mand-
ler took to fouling him in an attempt
to keep him in check.
Mandler had three personal fouls
called on him before six minutes of
play had elapsed, and was promptly

Wrestlers Overpower
Northwestern, 27-5
Displaying complete mastery over
an underdog Northwestern wrestling
team yesterday afternoon, the Wol-
verine grapplers opened the 1941 Big
Ten season with a one-sided 27-5
After sweeping through seven
matches, and over thee minutes in
the match in the unlimited class, it
appeared as if Coach Keen might have
a clean sweep. In the unlimited
match, Michigan's Jack Butler went
into the second period with a two-
point advantage over his Wildcat op-
ponent, Lyman Grover. However, in
his anxiety, Butler accidently strted
an illegal body slam from a standing
position instead of with one knee on
the mat. Grover was knocked out and
was awarded the match by default.
He was not injured seriously.
The meet opened with both 121-
pounder Fred Klemach and 128-
pounder Tom Weidig winning their
matches on points. Klemach was on

Minnesota But Defense
Weakens To Lose Game
Heddle, Goldsmith
Score On Assists
(Special To The Daily)
MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 18-Minne-
sota's hockey team took its second
straight decision over Michigan here
last night as the Gopher offense;
counted in every period to outscore
the Wolverines, 7-2.-
Michigan found the speed it lacked
in the first encounter Thursday night,1
matching the Gophers with plenty of
drive, but the scoring power of the
locals was too much for them. Babe
Paulsen, Minnesota's speedy wing,,
led the scorers, his three goals alone
being enough to beat the Wolverines.
Two-Goal Lead
Minnesota got off to a two-goal
lead before the game was ten minutes
old. Allan Eggleton tallied first in
7:21 on an easy push shot, taking'
a pass from behind the Michigan1
nets from Jim Magnus. Paulsen
started his string less than three min-
utes later, blazing into the Michigar
blue line and letting go with a should-
er-high sizzler that poor Hank Loud,
the Wolverine goalie, didn't have a1
chance to stop.
From then on the contest was1
never close. The Wolverines came
closest to matching the Gophers late
in the second period when Fred Hed-
dle counted Michigan's first goal of
the series on assists from John Corson
and Bob Collins. This only made it
4-1, however, as Paulsen had pre-
viously ended his scoring for the eve-
ning by decorating the cords twice in
43 seconds, both times on passes from
Gopher center Bob Arnold. His goals'
came at 9:01 and 9:44 of the period.
Arnold Passes Loud
Arnold came back again just 48
seconds later to pull the Gophers to,
a four-goal lead once more, passing
Loud on a blazing shot after defense-
man Ian Anderson broke through
to set up the play in front of the
nets, and that's the way the session
Michigan opened the scoring at
3:19 of the final period when Paul
Goldsmith took a pass from Bert
Stodden to tally on a close-in shot.
Magnus took less than a minute to
equalize Goldsmith's counter, how-
ever, taking a pass from Bill Gali-
gan feinting Loud out of position
to give the Gophers their four-goal
lead back.
The trio of Eggleton, Galliganand
Magnus closed thenscoring as they

Validity of the basic assumptions

critically analyzed as democracy
faces a period of crisis, Prof. Hay-

department told more than 400 edu-
cators who convened here yesterday
for the Third Annual Conference on
Instruction and Curriculum Prob-
The purpose of training the stu-
dent today for society of tomorrow
may result in using education as a
means of propaganda for a type of
society desired by a few, Professor
Keniston warned. If the function
of education is to train intelligent
citizens, an abstract and potent pri-
macy of the state may result.
The aim of education should be
to develop the powers of the indi-
vidual to maximum capacity compat-
ible with society. In a democracy
"the ladder that leads to the top
must be kept open to all," he insist-
ed. It must also be realized, Pro-
fessor Keniston pointed out, that the
same ladder is not suitable for every-

President Prepares
Inaugural Address
NEW YORK, Jan. 18.-(P)- Joseph
P Kennedy, retiring ambassador to
Great Britain, urged tonight that the
United States "give the utmost aid
to England," but said he did not feel
the nation's immediate danger justi-
fied passage of the "lease-lend" bill
In its present form.
He declared this country's aid to
Britain "should not and must not go
to the point where war becomes in-
The "lend-lease" bill, he said, con-
ferred upon President Roosevelt "au-
thority unheard of in our history,"
and he commented:
"I am unable to agree with the pro-
ponents of this bill that it has yet
been shown that we face such im-
mediate danger as to justify this sur-
render of the authority and responsi-
bility of the Congress. I believe that
after the hearings have been com-
pleted there will be revealed less dras-
tic ways of meeting the problem of
adequate authority for the President."
Once a bill had become law, Ken-
nedy said in an address over the
nationwide Red Network of the Na-
tional Broadcasting Company, it was
the duty of every American to "rally
behind the President."
Regardless of what this nation's
foreign policy should be, he said, "we
must go 'all out' for rearmament."
"It is only in this way," he said,
'that the American people can real-
ize their national policy of security
and their desire to help EngI T."Tihe
more we rearm, the larger our arsen-
al, the more we shall have available
for England. There is no need to

Kennedy said one argument ad-
vanced as to why we should get into
the war was that "England is fight-
ing our battle."
"England is not fighting our
battle," he said. "This is not our war.

To Hold Conference
BERN, Switzerland, Jan. 18-(R)-
Amid portents of stepped-up German
aid for Italy, diplomatic quarters here
heard reports today that Adolf Hitler
and Benito Mussolini, with their chief
military, diplomatic and economic ad-

Rumanian-bases was a matter of
Neither Rome nor Berlin confirmed
officially that such a meeting was
set, but diplomatic sources said they
expected no confirmation until it
is over, possibly Monday.

for several Axis conclaves, is regarded
as the likely scene. Mussolini, how-

Prof. Schuman To Talk Today
On Can America Escape War'


Noted author and political scien-
tist, Prof. Frederick L. Schuman of
Williams College, will express his
views on the question, "Can America
Escape War?" at 8 p.m. today in the
lecture hall of the Rackham Building.
The talk, which is sponsored by
the Hillel Foundation here, will deal
mainly with the diplomatic back-
ground which immediately preceded
the present war, the various factors
in the conflict affecting the United
States and Professor Schuman's an-
swer to the problem of war aid which
is facing the entire nation.
Professor Schuman's personal be-
lief is that it will be to America's
disadvantage to keep out of World
War II and he further feels that the
longer the U.S. keeps out of war, the
worse state the country will be in.
In The New Republic of July 8,
