WASHINGTON, Oct. 25.-(AP)-
The Senate will begin debate Monday
on the controversial bill to permit
armed American ships to sail to any
port. in the world.
Senator Barkley, (Dem.-Ky.) Dem-
ocratic leader, said today he had no
Idea how long it would take the upper
house of Congress to reach a vote.
The Senate Foreign Relations Oom-
mittee voted 13 to 10 to submit the
nmeasure to the Senate.
The momentous bill, a substitute
for the House-approved measure lim-
ited to ship arming1 was accepted af-
ter the committee had voted 12 to 11
to take it in lieu of similar legislation
proposed by Senators Pepper (Dem.-
Fla.), Lee (Dem.-Okla.) and Green
(Den.-R.I.). Senator White (Rep.-
Me.), who voted with the opposition
on the first tally, jo ned the Admin-
istration majority on the final ballot.

KUIBYSHEV, Russia, Oct. 25.-(YP)
-German armies reinforced, by
troops from the Leningrad front are
hurling mass assaults against Soviet
forces in revitalized offensives at
the western approaches to Moscow,
into the Crimea, and toward Rostov
on the road to the Caucasus, Russian
frontline dispatches said tonight.
A supreme test, Moscow's defenders
admitted was rapidly developing in
the 23-day-old Nazi offensive in
which the Russians say Adolf Hitler
has lost 300,000 men.
Six successive attacks by the Ger-
man 129th motorized division upon
the Soviet left flank in the Mozhaisk
sector, 57 miles west of the capital,
were declared repulsed in three days.
Here a howling wind shrouded the
fallen with drifted snow.
In the Maloyaroslavets sector, 65
miles southwest of Moscow, the Ger-
mans were reported thwarted in at-
tempts to cross the Oka River.
A second mighty Nazi offensive is
underway in the Crimea, where Rus-
sian accounts said. the first was beat-
en off with 5,000 German and Ru-
manian dead. Despite these losses,
it was admitted the Germans had
made new gains at the approaches of
the isthmus.
(There was no Soviet confirmation
of a German announcement of the
capture of Kharkov, the biggest in-
dustrial center of the Ukraine 150
miles northwest of Stalino.)

Alpha Sigma Phi first place in the
annual homecoming display contest,
with Sigma Chi, Kappa Sigma and
Trigon receiving honorable mention.
With a twist of the wrist, the Al-
phas changed a well known slogan
to "Their Roasted," as applied to the
Golden Gophers, and built the Wol-
verines up to king size in two packs,'
10 players in each, commenting
"Where Particular People Congre-
gate." ,
Below a cloud of smoke, the butts
of Michigan State, Iowa, Pitt and
Northwestern rested in an ashtray;
next to it a match box with the in-
scription "The Wolverines are a
Match for Any Team."
Standing alone, king size, were two
numbers 86 and 54, for Captains
Westfall and Smith.
Backing up the entire display was
a public address system with a com-
plex, but complete repertoire which
included Michigan cheers and a
Michigan version of "Modern De-
sign." In the background, through
all this, the "Victors" sounded vali-
Sigma Chi went rustic in a big way,
using Paul Webb's Esquire cartoons
as a starter. Beginning with an out-
house and the legend "We ain't gona
plumer this one," they completed the
hill-billy establishment with live
chickens (no eggs reported)- a bale
of scattered hay and an old ricket
Trigon used a "not Harmonized,
but Michanized" team display, throw-

ing in a Gopher grinder-they go in
whole, come out hash idea--and four
other grinders for the last four
games. The final angle was packed
ground Gophers, with a whole one
looking 'on.
Kappa Sigma also used a hill-billy
theme, having the previous games
commemorated in small brown jugs,
and Minnesota bottled up in a huge
little brown jug. Hillbillies were scat-
tered around the lawn, drinking from
the jugs.
Biggest what might have been
award went to Sigma Chi who at-
tempted to have a cow in their dis-
play with the slogan "This ain't no
bull, beat Minnesota," but the idea
was given up after several men lost
several tussles with the obstinant bo-
vine, who refused to leave the rural
