(Special To The Daily)
NEW YORK CITY, Nov. 15.-It was Bob Westfall, Tom Kuzma and
Michigan's mighty Wolverines all the way here today as a rampaging gang
of Maize and Blue clad gridders from out of, the Middle West completely
outclassed Columbia, 28-0.
One-sided as the score may appear, it gives absolutely no indication of
the superiority which Fritz Crisler's outfit demonstrated over the game
but overmatched Lions, a fact which becomes evident after one look at the
statistics which show the Wolverines moving for 359 yards net gain on the

The Russians said they still held a

ship Malaya which the German
High Command reported as severely
damaged in the fight which sank
the aircraft carrier Ark Royal has
arrived at Gibraltar with slight
nropellor damage, it was learned
here tonight.
BERLIN, Nov. 15-()-The Ger-
man High Command credited two of!
its submarines today with a. "great
new success." in which not only was
the British aircraft carrier Ark Royal
sunk, but the 31,000-ton British bat-
tleship Malaya was declared severely
damaged and "further British units
hit by torpedoes."
, The announcement disclosed for
the first time that Nazi U-boats were
operating in the Mediterranean. Yes-
terday's Berlin comment, when the,
British Admiralty announced loss of
the Ark Royal, was simply that the
vessel was attacked in an Italian op-
erations zone.4
(The Italian High Command, which
in its communiques frequently re-
peats German announcements on
Mediterranean area operations, has
been silent on the Ark Royal.)

Charity Drive
Has One-Third
Of $700 Goal
Less than one-third of the goal set
for local women's Red Cross collec-
tions has been obtained to date,
Elizabeth Luckham, '42, chairman of
the drive, announced yesterday.
As indicated by the chart and ther-
mometer in the League Lobby, cam-1
pus women have contributed only
$200 of the $700 quota which they
expect to reach.
Pointing out that the time to join
the Red Cross is nw, Miss Luckham
revealed that only three dormitories
out of 11 have reported; 11 sororities
o.ut of 20 and no League houses or
cooperatives have been heard from
thus far.
Martha Cook has the highest con-
tribution of all, $34.60. Collegiate
Sorosis and Alpha Chi Omega are
the first houses to report a 100 per
cent membership.
The 21 League house presidents
who have not yet picked up their
Red Cross materials are asked to do
sd at once in Miss McCormick's office
in the League. They are also 're-
quired to report to Mary Brownrigg,
'44, daily the amount of money col-
lected in each house.

Address To Begin Drive
For MedicalSupplies
Beginning a local drive for medical
aid to Soviet Russia, Philip Adler,
feature-writer of the Detroit News,
will dejiver a talk at 8 p.m. tomorrow
in the Rackham Auditorium under
the auspices of the Ann Arbor Com-
mittee for Medical Aid to Russia.
Adler, who was born in Russia, has
been back there twice-once in 1929
and again in 1934. Through first-
hand observation, therefore, he has
come to know the characteristics and
needs of the Russians.
While he will not urge military aid
of any nature, he does intend to
point out the terrible necessity of
sending medical supplies and other
civilian aid to the Russian people.
The sponsoring committee, com-
posed largely of local faculty mem-
bers, tbwnspeople and members of the
University Hospital staff, intends in
the near future to affiliate itself with
he national Russian Relief, Inc.

Crashing through the line like a
man berserk, Westfall, the ,Michigan
captain, scored three of the four
Michigan touchdowns and put on a
shpw which made his choice as All-
America fullback a virtual certainty.
Kuzma, great sophomore left half-
back, tallied the other Wolverine
marker and turned in the longest run
of the day when he raced 66 yards
through the entire Columbia team
midway in the first quarter, being
caught from behind on the seven
yard stripe.

Fritz. substituted extensively during
the second half and only this pre-
vented Michigan from running up the
biggest score it has turned in this
In the line, tbo, Michigan's superi-
ority was evident. The Wolverine
forward wall repeatedly crashed
through into the Lion backfield to
rush the passes of Paul Governali,
Columbia aerial ace who, incident-
ally, displayed plenty of football
ability in his own right.
But Governali alone was not enough
and, although he completed the sur-
prising total of 18 passes, he couldn't
give his team a touchdown. N
Kuzma Kicks Well
Although Kuzma was only forced
to kick twice, the Gary, Ind., star
stowed up well in this department,
too, getting off two 46-yard punts,
one a quick-kick and the other a
coffin-corner boot which bounceI out
on the Lion one-yard line to pave
the way for Michigan's first touch-
down, which he scored himself, just
four plays later.
Two of the scores turned in by
Westfall came on short line bucks
after he and Kuzma had put the ball
into position and, the other, Michi-
gan's last, was a smashing 21-yard
run through the right side of the
Lion forward wal.
Until the final quarter, when Mich-
igan was playing m6stly third-string-
ers, the home club never came close
to threatening the Michigan goal
line. An intercepted Governali pass
by Ted Kennedy stopped this final
attempt on the five-yard marker
