ShowingOf Season
A victory-hungry Michigan basket-
ball team went scoring mad last1
night in Yost Field House and smo-
thered a hard-fighting Ohio State
squad beneath an avalanche of bas-
kets, 53-39.
Led by Capt. Bill Cartmill who
scored 17, points, the Wolverines took
a 9-7 lead with about ten minutes re-
maining in the first half and never
slackened their torrid pace until the
final whistle had blown.
In winning their second Big Ten
victory in seven starts, the Maize
and Blue cagers took the opening
jump, exchanged the lead two times,
and then went on to take a 27-16 lead
at halftime.
It was the curly-haired Michigan
captain himself who started the fire-
works going by taking the tipoffI
dribbling through three Buckeye1
players and sinking a one-handedc
push shot from about 15 feet out.
With the score 11-10, Cartmill scored
two buckets in quick succession to
boost the Wolverines' lead to five
points and give them added confi-

Martin, Patten Star
In Swimming Contest 1
Lifting the lid off its 1942 home
season, Michigan's rampaging swim-
ming team completely submerged a
strong Ohio State crew, 50-34, in the
Sports Building Pool last night to
run its undefeated streak to 32 con-"
secutive dual meets.
The Wolverines stroked their way
to first place in all but two events,
as junior Jack Patten, winning both
the 220 and 440 freestyle races, gar-
nered individual scoring honors with
a total of 10 points as well as un-1
officailly cracking the Big Ten 220f
But in spite of Patten's singular
brilliance, the spotlight of the entire
meet was focused on the diving con-
test which brought together the three7
foremost collegiate divers in the
country, Charlie Batterman and
Frank Dempsey of Ohio State and
Michigan's own T-Bone Martin.
Martin Stages Comeback
And when the ripples had settled
in the pool, Martin, who came from'
behind when the optional dives werer
called for, was the winner with 417.1
points to Batterman's 404.6 and
Dempsey's 389.8.
Except for one brief splurge, the
Maize and Blue ace trailed the Buck-
eye stars until the eighth dive out of
the required ten. Then the close-knit1
senior turned the tide of the battle.
For it was that eighth dive that
won for T-Bone. Ten points arrears
Dempsey and seven behind Batter-
man, he poised himself rigidly on the
back end of the board as Coach Matt
Mann announced a front one-and-a-
half gainer with a tuck would be
T-Bone's next attempt.
With the crowd straining forward
Martin expanded his barrel chest,
strode forward and soared off the

edge of the board to enter the water
without as much as the smallest of
splashes. When he emerged the
judges' cards had already flashed and
T-Bone held a lead which was never

Michigan Wrestlers
Defeat Findlay, 26-6
The big secret about the Findlay
college wrestling team was finally
brought out into the open yesterday
afternoon at Yost Field House and
as far as the Oilers are concerned
it might just as well have remained
in the closet.
Michigan won 26-6.
But don't let that score make you
think the Findlay lads are a flock of
rag dolls. A huskier grappling out-
fit would be hard to find in these
parts, but the small Ohio school's
matmen lacked just enough in exper-
ience and finesse to miss scoring
heavily against Cliff Keen's tricky

RIO DE JANEIRO. Jan. 24.-VPl)-
Uruguay and Peru severed diplomatic
relations tonight with Germany, Italy
and Japan, putting into swift and
dramatic effect terms of a compro-
mise anti-Axis agreement reached
by all the Western Hemisphere re-
publics at the Pan-American Confer-
ence here.
The action of the Montevideo and
Lima governments was announced a
few minutes before Sumner Welles,
U. S. Undersecretary of State, told
the conference that "we have already
met with the utmost measure of suc-

thus gave pointed emphasis to Welles'
further declaration in an address to
the conference that "we can truly
say this has been a meeting of deeds,
not merely words."
Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador and Para-
guay are expected to follow the lead
of Uruguay and Peru and observers
here were predicting that by the end
of next week Argentina and Chile
would be the only Western Hemi-
sphere countries maintaining diplo-
matic ties with the Axis powers.
Uruguay's decision to break with
the Axis was announced by Foreign
Minister Alberto Guani upon receipt
of word from President Alfredo Bald-

With War Minister Francis M. Forde's announcement that Japanese forces had landed at Rabaul (1),
in New Britain, at Kieta, and had gained several footholds in New Guinea, feverish preparations were begun
for the mobilization of Australia's man-power. Jap troops were also reported at Bougainville in the Solo-
mon Islands (2), 300t to 900 miles northeast of Australia. In a broadcast, Forde took the view that the whole
war might be won or lost in the Pacific.
