(Special to The Daily)
MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 22.-Michi-
gan's hockey team won its first game
over a Minnesota ice squad since
1938 at Minneapolis tonight, 3 to 2,
when a final period rally by the
Gophers failed to even the battle.
Both teams took better than half
the game to give the fans a fast
game. In the first period, Michigan's
Bob Collins caught the Gopher de-
fense-off guard near the boards and
made the first score unassisted from
beyond the red line. The time was
7:12.
Loud Saves Day
Minnesota's sextet worked hope-
lessly with long shots from beyond
Michigan's defense concentration,
but Wolverine goalie Hank Loud was
too fast. Although the Gophers man-
aged to steal the puck for perfect
set-up shots, they lacked the coordi-
nation, due to inexperienced players,
to profit.
Michigan's Paul Goldsmith and
Minnesota's little Bob Arnold, .cen-
ters, did most of the work for both
teams.
Max Bahrych, Wolverine spare,
made it 2 to 0 in the first period with
the time 15:22.
In the second period, both squads
turned on the speed but not the ac-
curacy, and' the canto ended with
neither team cashing .in. Gophers
Fred Heiseke and Bob Graiziger
journeyed to the penalty box for
hooking and slashing.
Scores Come Fast
Three scores came within two min-
utes in the middle of the last period.
Goldsmith and Roy Bradley worked
down the ice together and made it
3 to 0. Immediately afterwards,
Gopher Arnold took a shot off the
back-board from Graiziger, who just
came out of the penalty box, and
netted the puck from 10 feet out.
Again, the Minnesota squad caught
the Wolverines out of position and
Captain Al Eggleton finally made a
long shot click. A final scramble
around the Wolverine net ended the
game, 3 to 2.
The attendance was 1100.

To Hold Meeting
Here Tomorrotw
Three hundred superintendents of
Michigan schools will convene at the
fourth mid-winter Education and
Guidance Conference beginning at
9:30 a.m. tomorrow in the Lecture
Room of the Rackham Building.
The joint program, to be run un-
der the auspices of the School of Edu-
cation and the Bureau of Appoint-
ments and Occupational Informa-
tion, will consist of a series of re-
ports of problems relating to teacher
supply and demand, teacher adjust-
ments and guidance programs, in ad-
dition to roundtable discussions,
demonstrations and presentations of
new techniques in visual education,

The luncheon at 1 p.m. in the
Michigan League will provide a sym-
posium of "Frontier Problems in the
Field of Vocational Guidance and,
Vocational Education" and will be
followed by an afternoon session in
the Michigan League Ballroom.
It is recommended that all stu-

Nearly 300 student "minute-men"
will go on active duty today as the
University opens the first defense
savings Tag Day on any campus in
the United States.
From 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., stu-
dent and faculty dimes will be ex-
changed for 10-cent war savings
stamps and albums, first step towards
a defense bond share in the future
of the United States government.
Tags bearing the campaign's min-
ute-man symbol will be distributed
to every man and woman who intro-
duce themselves to the "savings hab-
it." Ann Arbor residents have already
contributed at the rate of $100 per
capita.
In the fraternity, sorority and
dormitory drive held yesterday, 4500
defense stamp albums were sold to
students. These albums hold 50 10-
cent stamps and provide a "dime-a-

City Workers
Vote To Delay
Detroit St ritke
DETROIT, Jan. 22.-(/P)--City em-
ployes voted tonight to delay a
threatened strike until a referendum
of members of their AFL union may
be taken. The action was completed
at a mass meeting within five hours
of a 4 a.m. deadline for the tie-up of
municipal transportation and other
facilities.
Arthur M. Stringari,, business agent
of the union, urged the delay after
receiving a telegram from Undersec-
retary of war Robert F. Patterson
which stated:
"A strike on your part would im-
peril Detroit production of planes,
tanks and guns desperately needed
in the- conduct of the war, delay in
the receipt of which may cost many
lives. Under these circumstances I
expect you to settle your dispute by
negotiations, mediation or arbitra-
tion, resorting to the War Labor
Board if necessary."
Stringari also read the members a
telegram from Dr. Arnold Zander,
president 'of .the Union of State,
County and Municipal Employes--
AFL. Zander, too, asked that a walk-
out be deferred.
Detroit's 4,000 police had been
placed on emergency duty pending
the outcome of the mass meeting.
A strike had been voted last Sunday
over objections of International Un-
ion officials who claim 15,000 of the
city's 37,000 employes as members.
SovieL Ski Troops
Attack Nazi Flanks
MOSCOW, Jan. 22.-(A)--German
armies floundering back along Na-
poleon's road of retreat from Moscow
were harried tonight by Russian ski
troops that skimmed the snow-drifts
on fast, propeller-driven sleds and
struck fiercely at their flanks.
Riding waist-deep snow in front of
roaring plane engines, the far-flung
Russian vanguards were reported to
have intercepted the Germans west
of the Napoleonic battlefields of Bor-
odino and, with their light arms, to
have spread terror and confusion
along the enemy's difficult line of
communication.
The old Borodino battlefield lies a
dozen miles west of Mozeheisk, which
was the point of the German's main
frontal salient aimed at Moscow. The
Germans were in retreat toward Vy-
azma, about 60 airline miles farther
west.

No Refunds

Rental In Rooming Houses
May Not Be Returned
Under Semesterial Plan
Dorms Will Adjust
Payment On Board
Students who have signed rooming
house contracts upon the University-
suggested semesterial pattern are
apparently without grounds to secure
any rent money refunds occasioned
by the shortened school year.
Although the University-printed
rooming house contracts provide for
the payment of rent by semesters,
many householders have struck out
The following statement in yes-
terday's Daily was accidentally at-
tributed to Dr. Karl Litzenberg,
director of University residence
halls. It should have been attribu-
ted to Dean C. T. Olmstead, super-
visor of University-approved room-
ing houses:
"We cannot tell the landladies to
make (rental) adjustments as the
University is not giving any in the
dormitories."
Neither Dr. Litzenberg nor Dean
Olmstead made the statement that:
"... we hope that some landladies
will voluntarily make any necessary
refunds."
the semesterial clause and have sub-
stituted provisions for payment upon
a weekly basis. Therefore, students
with a weekly contract will lose no
money.
On the other hand, students signed
to semester payments in rooming
houses will be paying for two weeks
lodging which they will not receive, as
each semester has been shortened by
one week.
Despite the fact that the acceler-
ated calendar wil graduate seniors
three weeks early this May, Univer-
sity students will be on campus only
one week less than under the old
schedule during the Spring semester.
The resumption of classes one week
early and the omission of Spring Va-
cation cut two weeks from the three-
week-early graduation.
There will be no refund of rent
money in the dormitories, Dr. Karl
Litzenberg, director of the University
residence halls said yesterday. The
Board of Governors of the University
residence halls has always computed
room rent upon an annual contract
of two semesters.
According to Dr. Litzenberg, a per-
diem refund will be made on meals
served in all dormitories. This will
entitle residents to a refund of ap-
proximately $7,
Crisler Given
New Positlin
By War Board
The University took another big
step Tuesday in its attempt to aid in
the nation's defense program when
the War Board announced the ap-
pointment of Michigan's Athletic Di-
rector, Fritz Crisler, as chairman of
a Physical Education and Public
Health Committee.
Crisler, who recently returned from
a football coaches' meeting in Phoe-
nix, Ariz., immediately took active

steps in appointing members and
organizing plans of the committee so
as to increase the value of the Phys-
ical Education and Public Health
Departments in the present crisis.
The plans of the committee are to
make a study of present conditions,
take an inventory of all equipment
and buildings and to make recom-
mendations for future undertakings.
Crisler pointed out, "We have one
of the most elaborate athletic pro-
grams in the country, and certainly
we are lacking nothing in equipment,
"As far as new undertakings are
concerned, I am in favor of compul-
sory physical education for the en-
tire four years that the boys are in
college. Proper physical condition is
a prime requisite for all those en-
gaged in the war effort.
"I would like to see further enmpha=
sis on all intramural sports."

Enemy Pounds U.S. Lines
In Attempt To Conquer
By Force Of Numbers
MacArthur Faces
T 'eine ii(dons Odds
WASHINGTON, Jan. 22.-UP)-The
Japanese, with 200,000 troops on Lu-
zon and reinforcements still arriving,
today directed hammer blows at Gen-
eral Douglas MacArthur's army in an
apparent attempt to crush it by sheer
numbers.
Reporting that enemy attacks were
being intensified all along the nar-
row front on Batan Peninsula, the
War Department said that the entire
Japanese 14th army and other units
had now been massed on the island
of Luzon.
Commanded by bulky, English-
speaking Lieut. Gen. Masaharu Hom-
ma, the force included possibly ,ten
divisions and auxiliary troops num-
bering altogether 200,000 or more
men. Only in the drive on Singapore
are larger enemy forces being em-
ployed, observers believed.
Bombers Raid Cebu
A raid by 17 bombers on Cebu, the
Philippines' second city, which was
reported at the same time, suggested
enemy intent to occupy other island
areas which thus far have escaped
invasion.
Cebu, about 150 miles south of Lu-
zon on the island of Cebu, has been
a major link in communications be-
tween the United States and unoccu-
pied sections of the Philippines.
Whether radio facilities there were
damaged or put out of commission
by the raid, which took place Sun-
day, was not disclosed by the War
Department.
The sombre picture in the China
Sea area was lightened somewhat by
a report from a high government of-
ficial that since Dec. 7 a stream of
reinforcements had been started to
the southwest Pacific, while, mean-
time, defenses on Hawaii and the
United States Pacific coast had been
made stronger than ever before.
The temporary advantage in naval
strength that Japan gained by
treachery was declared to have been
largely offset by the mounting pro-
duction and use of American long
range bombers. Whether the rein-
forcements were other than aerial
was left unsaid.
Reinforcements Landed
In the morning communique, the
War Department said particularly
heavy fighting had developed along
the left flank and center of General
MacArthur's line, now believed to
be about 25 miles north of the fort-
ress of Corregidor. Enemy reinforce-
ments were said to be landing both
at nearby Subic Bay and farther
north on Lingayen Gulf
Repulsed in earlier attempts to
turn the right flank of the little
American-Filipino army and batter
it southward along the single high-
way leading to Corregidor, the Jap-
anese are making their new efforts
to advance in exceptionally rugged
jungle country.
General MacArthur's left flank ex-
tends to the Batan Peninsula coast
only a few miles from Binanga Bay,
scene of a daring motor torpedo boat
attack on a Japanese ship.

Health Service
Makes Appeal
ForFacilities
A new outbreak of German meas-
les which struck 13 students yester-
day, has overtaxed the facilities of
Health Service and the Contagious
Ward of the University Hosital and
has resulted in an appeal for aid.
Any landlady with a number of
empty rooms and facilities for feed-
ing patients is asked to get in touch
with Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, direc-
tor of Health Service.
Students exposed during the first
outbreak, which occurred immedi-
ately after Christmas Vacation and
reached a high water mark of 27
patients in the first week of school,
are now coming down with the highly,
contagious disease.
German measles requires from two
to three weeks to develop but takes
only three days to run its course, and
is often not even as serious as some
bad colds.
The current crop started off slowly
with only two cases reported Tues-
day and three on Wednesday, but
yesterday the Health Service received
13 more patients which overcrowded
the contagious section of the Service
and University Hospital's Contagious
Ward-both already well filled with
more serious cases
Rio Conclave
Is Deadlocked
By Argentina
New Difficulties Attributed
To Resentment Aroused
By Words Of Connally
RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan. 22.---
Argentina deadlocked the Pan-Amer-
ican conference again tonight with
efforts to weaken still more the al-
ready revised resolution calling for
an eventual diplomatic rupture with
the Axis, and some observers attribu-
ted these new difficulties to Argen-
tine resentment over Senator Con-
nally's remarks yesterday in Wash-
ington,
Political leaders here said that Ar-
gentina apparently had swung into
line last night about the time the
U. S. Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee head declared "We are trust-
ing that Castillo (acting President of
Argentina) will change his mind, or
that the Argentine people will change
their President."
Connally's statement had followed
one by Castillo in which the Acting
President in Buenos Aires declared.
that, "right or wrong," Argentina
would not modify her opposition to
the rupture resolution.
rn Buenos Aires tonight, Castillo,
in another published interview de-
clared that Argentina was " in soli-
darity with the American nations,
but we do not agree that an attack
on one of the nations of America
signifies that all others take the posi-
tion of belligerency."

Marines Reported Landing
On New Britain; Harbor
Installations Destroyed
Counter-Offensive
Started In Malaya
(By The Associated Press)
MELBOURNE, Australia, Fri., Jan.
23.-Japanese marines, in their first
invasion of Australian territory, were
believed today to have landed on New
Britain Island 800 miles off the
northern mainland after a withdraw-
ing garrison fired and dynamited
dock installations at Rabaul, its capi-
tal.
A radio flash from Rabaul at 4
p.m. yesterday (1 a.m. EST) said that
eleven Japanese vessels including
warships had been sighted 45 miles
offshore bearing down on the island.
That was the last word from Ra-
baul which had undergone two heavy
Japanese air attacks during the day.
Town Is Evacuated
An Australian army bulletin issued
last night said:
"It is considered that the stations
were demolished by our forces and
it is probable that the town has been
evacuated.
"It is not known presently whether
any Japanese forces have attempted
to land."
The communique said the eleven
Japanese ships were seen 30 miles
off Watom Island, which is 15 miles
northwest of Rabaul in St. George's
Channel between New Britain and
New Ireland, both Australian man
dates in the Bismarck Archipelago.
(The London radio also reported
that three Japanese aircraft carriers
had been sighted off New Guinea, the
British and Dutch mandated island
lying west of New Britain on the
road to the Netherlands East Indies.)
Australia Electrified
For two days officials had warned
that heavy Japanese air raids on both
New Britain and New Guinea were
the prelude to invasion, but last
night's announcement electrified
Australia.
While newspapers cried out for Al-
lied air reinforcements, defense offi-
cials planned to blackout all cities
on the mainland, and also began
accepting enlistments from resident
aliens-Germans, Austrians, Danes,
Italians and Czechs.
Counter-Offensive
Started In Malaya
SINGAPORE, Jan. 22.--(P)-The
British Imperial line northwest of
Singapore lunged out today in what
appeared to be the first strong coun-
ter-offensive yet launched by the de-
fenders, and reinforcements of Huf-
ricane fighters went into action to
shorten the ratio of the enemy's
aerial superiority.
British, Australian and Indian
troops, covered in their initial ad-
vance by heavy artillery fire, were
engaged in a great and perhaps de-
cisive struggle with the bulk of te
invading forces in the rough Bukit
Payong hill area above Batu Pahat
in western Malaya-a wild battle
ground 70 miles above Singapore
itself,
This strong counter-thrust, which
was planned by general officers in a
war council held under the shade of
the rubber trees, was intended to
solidify the western British anchor in
northern Johore State and to rescue
the survivors of two Australian bat-
talions and one Indian battalion
which had been isolated just to the
north below the Muar River.
It was accompanied by new fight-
ing on the eastern end of the front
-also in an area about 70 miles
north of this base--below the port
of Endau.

And thus, in the words of :Prof. H. 1
H. Goldstine of the mathematics de-
partment, is described the response
to the recent University offer to ar-
range special math courses to en-
able law students to qualify for the
Navy's V-7 classification.
But more interesting, according to
Professor Goldstine, is the fact that
only part of the students he has in-
terviewed have been law students,
the remainder coming from the lit-
erary college, the College of Phar-
macy, the education school and even
the School of Music.
As administrator for the program

Law School pointed out."
V-7 requirementsdstate that the
applicant be credited with two one-
semester courses in mathematics of
college grade. A number of programs,
varying with the amount of previous
mathematics credited the applicant,
have hence been drawn up.
It will be necessary for each stu-
dent wishing to pursue this program
to consult Professor Goldstine be-
tween 2 and 4 p.m. today, the last
day of interviewing, in Room 20A,
East Hall, in order that the specific
course open to the applicant may be
determined.
