(Daily Sports Editor)
They fought "the State ;game up
front Saturday.
And it was the grueling two and a
half weeks that. Michigan's rugged
squad spent in pre-season condi-
tioning that made the difference.
The long practice hours devoted to
calisthenics, blocking, tackling, indi-
vidual contact work, lung-searing
wind sprints-all played their part,
all paid rich dividends as the Wol-
verine forward wall paced the 1941
Michigan machine to a 19-7 win over
the battle-weary Spartans.
Now, having sent the victory-hun-
gry State outfit bAck to East Lan-
sing empty-handed for the fourth
straight year, Michigan's squad is
training its sights on the forthcom-
ing Big Ten grid campaign which
swings into action with a lone con-
ference tilt Saturday when the Maize
and Blue plays host to Iowa's invad-
ing Hawkeyes. '
Iowa Highly Touted
Nor did Wolverine hopes for a
triumph in ,their initial conference

ends against the Bulldogs with such
effectiveness, and of their: three in-
dividual stars, Bullet Bill Green at
fullback, Capt. Bill Diehltatkcenter,
and big Jim Walker at tackle.
It was the report of Iowa's fast-
stepping ,offensive around Drake's
flankmen last Saturday that especi-
ally bothered Wolverine coaches yes-
terday. According to Oosterbaan,
nearly half of the Hawkeye offen-
sive was devoted to end sweeps with;
great effectiveness, although Eddie
Andeison's outfit was admittedly per-
forming under wraps. And it is the
mediocre play of MicJigan flankmen
which- now stands as one of the
most pressing problems confronting
the Wolverine mentors as a result of
the 'partan clash.

Czechs To Die
For Treason,
Reports DNP-,.
/By The Associated Press)
Twenty-four Czechs, including two
high-ranking generals, have been
sentenced to death by German mili-
tary tribunals for plotting the over-
throw of the Nazi-erected protector-
ate of Bohemia-Moravia, DNB re-"
ported today in Berlin.
Thus dismembered Czechoslovakia
joined the growing list of Nazi-occu-
pied territories where unrest creat-
ed fresh problems for Germany while
it is engaged in an ambitious pro-
gram of conquest in Russia.
Last night the Germans announced
six executions in Czechoslovakia, and
the Prague radio, quoted by the BBC
and Reuters, reported 14 more per-
sons' had been shot down by Nazi
firing squads.
A 10 p.m. curfew was reported by
the Prague station to have been im-
posed on restaurants, hotels, theatres
and other places of amusement in
the six districts placed under' a states
of emergency by the Gestapo leader
whom Adolf Hitler entrusted with
smashing the anti-German manifes-
German theatres alone were ex-
empt from the curfew, the Prague
station said.
Thus former Czecho-Slovakia-
under Nazi rule since the spring Qf
1939-was added to the lengthening
list of conquered nations where a
rising tide of sabotage, strikes and
violence increased the strain on the
huge police and military forces with
which the Reich patrols most of

cutigns, but reported arrests under

Italy Bombed
In RAF Raids
Assault Termed 'All-Out';
Possessions Attacked
LONDON, Sept. 29.-()-Italy has
been caught in a two-direction, all-
out assault by the RAF-an offen-
sive based on Britain's own flying
fields as well as those of the Middle
East-which to some quarters looked
tonightl ike the start of a drive to
"bomb Italy out of the war.".
Synchronized with. the operations
of bombers from the sandy plains of
Egypt for attacks over the week-end
and Sunday night on Italy's insular
possessions - Sicily, Sardinia and
Rhodes, as well as the Libyan coast
of North Africa-the greatest weight-
carrying planes of the RAF crossed
the Alps last night to raid the north-
ern mainland of Italy.
They smashed at military, naval
and industrial centers, blazing a trail
of fire and destruction.
So far as the Middle Eastern as-
sault on Italy was concerned, the
Italian High Command's own ack-
nowledgements provided the best in-
dication of the scale of attack: raids
on the city of Rhodes on the Dodec-
anese island of the same name, on
Palermo, Trapani, Marsala and Cas-
tel Vetrano in Sicily and Bardia,

WASHINGTON, Sept. 29. -('-
Deporting of Harry Bridges was rec-

Department inspector in a report
which may become an important pre-
cedent in future proceedings under
the new alien laws.
The report made the flat finding
that the Communist Party, from its
organization in this country in 1919
up to the present time, advocated
overthrow of the government by vio-
lence and , that consequerntly any
alien who ever had been affiliated
with it was subject to deportation.
Bridges, it said, had been so affili-
ated. \
It also held that affiliation with
