Consecutive Singles
End Brooklyn Hopes
EBBETS FIELD, Brooklyn, Oct. 4.
-(1P)-Masterful pitching by Marns
Russo, a young southpaw with a sick
stomach, and four quick singles in
the eighth inning brought the New
York Yankees a 2 to 1 triumph over
the Brooklyn Dodgers today and gave
the Yanks a two to one advantage
in the games played. ; .
But the memory that was printed
indelibly in the minds of the 33,100
sweltering fans who jammed this
little park for Brooklyn's first series
show in 21 years was the gallant fight
of old Fred Fitzsimmons until a line
drive struck him on the left leg in
the seventh inning and knocked him
out of the ball game.
Fitz Hurled Well
,The fat, 40-year-old knuckle-ball
expert whoIn his younger days as a
tarr of the New York Giants was
beaten three times in World Series
contests, battled beautifully In a
scoreless hurling duel that kept every
tan in suspense while it lasted and
brought them to their feet cheering
time after time.

Rlusd ripped off a vicious line drive
that struck topheavy old Fitz inches
above thq left knee and bounced high
in the' air. Peewee Reese caught the
ball to end the inning, but Fitzsim-

and later was taken to New York
hospital for x-rays to deterninfe whe-

"Less than that, less than that,

Defense Will Call For 18%

in the spring, Budget Director Harold
D. Smith predicted today that de-

"In the near future," he said, "de-
fense costs will take 18 per cent of
the national income."
This estimate was $2,500,000,000
higher than 'a similar calculation he
made a few months ago. He said
the increase was due to faster de-

Wayne And Michigan Teachers Petiton
For Declaration Of War On Germany
O er)a

Adding their voices to those that
have already been insisting "the time
is now,"278 teachers at the Univer-
sity of Michigan and Wayne Univer
sity. yesterday petitioned Michigan
Congressmen for "total war upon
Germany and her tools until ,Hitler-
ism is utterly destroyed."
While demanding no specific mea-
sures-these, it was asserted in a
separate cover letter, must be left
to the discretion of national leaders
-the petition did declare that "we
should league ourselves without stint
or limit to the. enemies of Hitlerism
and thus bring the war to a victor-
ious termination."
1financial and material aid alone,
in the opinion of the signers, cannot
bring about the defeat of fascism.
According 'to the petitions, "it will
require military and naval action, the
extent of which cannot now be for-
seen but which will certainly be ,in-
creased with each month of delay."
Originated At Wayne
The idea for such an undertaking
had its origin at Wayne where Profs.
Bryan Rust and Alfred H. Kelly were
the leaders of the drive for signa-
tures., Profs. Carlton Wells of the
English department and Preston Slos-
son of the history department filled
similar roles here.
In a separate letter which accom-
panied the petitions, these men em-
phasized that the signers were acting
in the capacity of private citizens
and did not represent any institution
or organization.'
In return for the "total" aid which
the teachers are demanding, they
4so call for a "definite pledge" from
the nations who would be our allies.
Such a pledge would guarantee "an
international league or federation-
based on political liberty and econ-

omic justice-strong enough to pre-
vent the recurrence of future wars."
The original cover letter and peti-
tions, with the 275 signatures, were
sent to Senator Prentiss M. Brown,
while a copy of both was sent to Sen-
ator Arthur Vandenberg and all the
Michigan members of the House of
According to information released
by Professor Wells, all the schools
and colleges of the University were
represented by one or more signa-
tures. Of the 60 departments in the
College of Literature, Science and the
Arts, 44 were likewise represented.
Significant Trend
Signers were limited to members of
the teaching staff and included fac-
ulty men of every rank. 67 were full
professors, 40 associate professors, 34
assistant professors, 25 teaching fel-
lows and six of other rank.
The same held true at Wayne
where the divisions were 12, 20, 18
and 25, respectively.
The present petition is considered
by the sponsors as being the natural
follow-up of one they sent to Con-
gress last February. At that time the

thus reduced to within $25,000 of

signers were demanding the passage
of the Lease-Lend Bill. Signatures
then numbered 214, all of them ob-

sity teaching 'staff.

Professor Slosson said that he
thought the trend indicated by the
two petitions was a significant one
and representative of other colleges
and uiiversities throughout the
country, .
"Te faculty, just as the student
body, at Michigan is made up of
persons from every section of the
nation," he pointed out, "and it can.

cational institutions. I would almost

Hull Asks U.S.
For Defense
From Piracy
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4. -(AP)-
Secretary Hull today described the
sinking of the American-owned tank-
er, the I. C. White, as an act of
"fightfulness," and called upon the
United States to invoke the right of
self-defense against Nazi "piracy."
The fact that the ship had been
transferred to Panamanian registry,
placed at the disposal of the British
and was sailing under British orders
was secondary, in his opinion. He
made it clear that to his mind the,
real significance was that:
The I. C. White was torpedoed as
part of the Nazi program of world
conquest. That that movement ne-
cessitated the command of'the seas,
which America must resist in its own
self defense.
Neutrality Revision
Observers immediately tied his re-
marks in with the current agitation
for revision of the neutrality law.
The administration wants that act
amended to remove restrictions which
now forbid American ships to carry
guns for their protection and keep
them from sailing into belligerent
ports with supplies.
President Roosevelt plans a con-
ference with Senate leaders of both
parties next Tuesday, after which he
will decide the extent to which Con-
gress will be asked to revise the law.
Fate Learned Yesterday
The I. C. White was torpedoed in
the South Atlantic on Sept. 27. Her
fate was learned yesterday when the
American freighter West Nilus picked
up 18 men about 450 miles east of the
Brazilian coast. Today the freighter
Delnorte reported rescue of 17 others,
leaving four of the crew of 39 un-
accounted for.
Congressional supporters of the
Roosevelt foreign policy immediately
seized upon the incident to bolster
their case for amending or repealing
the neutrality law, with the Presi-
derit's opponents dissenting. Mr. Hull
was asked about it at his press con-
ference today,
"That seems to be another act of
lawlessness, piracy and attempted
frightfulness in connection with the
general movement to drive people off
the Atlantic as a part of the world
movement of conquest," he said.

power combination with deadly effi-
ciency, the Wolverines really rolled.
Capt. Bob Westfall bulleted to the
10-yard line in two smashes, Kuzma
threw an incomplete forward pass,
then on fourth down Westy again
dragged Iowa tacklers with irresist-
ible force to their own three for a
first down. Legs driving, Kuzma
scored over left tackle on his seond
try to put the Wolverines into the
lead. Melzow's placekick was to the
right of the goalpost, leaving the
count, 6-0.
Wolverines In First
That was the scoring for the day.
But it doesn't begin to tll the real
story of the game. The Wolverines,
by virtue of the victory, move into
first place in the young Confeence
campaign. But the Hawkeyes, who
poured everything they had into this
grueling contest, soared to inspira-
tional heights and amassed a definite
edge over the Maize and Blue in game
Slated to lose by at least two
touchdowns by expert observers, the
slim band of Hawks asked nothing,
gave nothing. They played rough,
tough 60-minute football, scrappig
for every inch of ground. They h
heard of Michigan's g.reat forward
wall. But they paid it no deference.
They had read about the Wolverines'
rugged running attack which had
rolled over Michigan State only seve#
days before. But they rose up in
all their "fury and threw it back our
times within their own six-yard line.
Michigan Outgained 77
Statistics showed that the invad-
ers' speed-saturated backfield drove
for 147 yards despite the soggy
ground, much of it around the Wl-
verinedflanks, and gained 46 yards
by passing. Michigan, on the other'
hand, was held to a rushing total, of
129 yards, while failing to complete
any of its four passes.
From the opening whistle Iowa
gave indications of its toughness.
They took the kickoff, and sparked
by a diversified, intricate offense,
promptly marched to Michigan's 33-
yard tine before they were halted.
Featured by te off-tackleesmashes
of fullback Bill Green and the light-
ning-quick end runs of fancy-step-

but a fourth down pass was grounded
and Michigan took over. Then fol-

British Rush Reinforcements
In Men, Munitions Eastward

(Associate'd Press Staff Writer)
Implicit in utterly conflicting Lon-
don and Rome accounts of recent
sea-air battles in the Mediterranean
is the obvious fact that heavy British
reinforcements in men and fighting
gear are being rushed eastward
through those dangerous waters.
They may be destined to join battle
with their Nazi foes, fighting beside
Russian troops in defense of the Cau-
casus. Certainly they are designed to
increase substantially the strength of

ernment had weighed unfavorably

of relieveing pressure on Russia does
not rule out that possibility.
Italian, press comment indicates
serious expection of a new British at-
tack in Libya. Hitler could not spare
either the air power or the troops and
tanks from his great adventure in
Russia to prop his faltering Axis mate
anew in Africa, even if means of get-
ting German reinforcements to the
scene were available.
