Precise Blocking, Broken Field Runnin

Halfback Tom Kuzma was off again on one of his smashing gains when this picture was snapped dur-
ing yesterday's game. It shows Michigan's latest "Ga ry Galloper" about to be brought down by Panther
backs Jack Kerr (No. 17) and Joe Adamchic (No. 68). Or you may guess that the efforts of the unidentified
Wolverine blocker were not in vain, and Kuzma went on for a further gain past the 15 yard stripe.

Ending a two-day run at 8:15 p.m.
today in the Lydia Mendelssohnr
Theatre, the new Soviet musical com-
edy, "Volga-Volga," will be shown
by the Art Cinema eague along with
a short subject of the Red Army en-
semble, the latest newsreel from the
Eastern Front and an English docu-
mentary film of an RAF raid on
Nazi-held islands.
The geieral artistic calibre of
"Volga-Volga" is perhaps best sug-
gested by the fact that four of the
leading artists' connected with the
production were awarded a collective
1941 Stalin prize of 100,000 rubles.
Probably the most astonishing fea-
ture of "Volga-Volga" is its use of
action gags, character-gags and just
plain slapstick with an expertness
that would evolve cheers from Mack
Sennett himself.

The dastardly crime, committed at
the Student Publications Building,
was revealed yesterday morning by
Gerald Hewitt, '42, editor of the
Student Directory which is to be is-
sued in the near future.
Cards bearing the names, addresses
and phone numbers of 2,000 Unver-
sity students had been stored in the
offices of the Michiganensian. Fri-
day night they were there; yesterday
morning they were gone.
"But there is no need to become

the original cards.
However, duplicates can be ob-
tained from University offices, so
no harm has been done, Hewitt says.
nBut rather perturbed is the Direc-
ory's guiding light, for cornered last
night by a Daily reporter for a
statement, he said: "It's sabotage.
That's what it is, sabotage by some
misanthropist that doesn't want the
Directory to come out."
Edito Hewitt went on to declare
that this is the second act of its kind,
in the past week. Last Wednesday a
galley of type disappeared, and has
not been found. The type had to be
reset, resulting in some delay and an
additional headache for mempbers of
