Nine Defeats
Wayne, 12-6
In One-Sided
Sluging Duel
Michigan Aided By Tarta
Errors In Fourth Win:
Visitors Score 11 Run
In First Four Innings
Netmen Favored
In Badger Match
The Wolverine baseball team got
more base hits yesterday afternoon
than they would in a lengthy bat-
ting practice as Michigan soundly
thumped a Wayne University nine,
The game was a knock-down, drag-
out affair that saw Coach Ray Fisher
use 17 players, four of whom were
pitchers, while Wayne used 11 play-
ers in an effort to stop the rampag-
ing Wolverines.
The win for Michigan was their
fourth of the season and their sec-
ond straight since their return from
the Southern trip.
Ferry Field spectators knew from
the very beginning that this would
be a high-scoring contest because
the Varsity scored three runs before
the first inning was over.
The Tartar nine was one of the
poorest fielding teams that Michigan
has faced in many a day. The boys
from the auto city made six costly
errors which accounted for at least
four of the Wolverines' runs.
From the parade of six that saw
action, the only good pitching job
for the afternoon was turned in by
Pro Boim. The hurlers' colorful
sophomore struck out five men and
allowed but one hit in the two in-
nings he worked.
Don Robinson, sensational Maize
and Blue shortstop, continued his
heavy hitting by helping himself to
three hits in three official times at

Vichy Embassy Officials
Hand In Resignations;
Turn To Free French
American Fliers
KUIBYSHEV, U.S.S.R., April 22.-
()-The Russian Karelian armies,
freshly reinforced by reserves, pushed
through two break-througlis in the
Finnish lines tonight in violent fight-
ing, and Red Army dispatches said
the Finns had suffered grave defeats-
in an exhausting attempt to stem
the Russian advance at any cost.
With the vast German-Russian
front a quagmire in many sections,
the northern battles, while not on a
major scale, appeared to be the hard-
est and most significant.
(Helsinki dispatches attested to the
ferocity of the Russian drive against
the Finnish lines, although claiming
that the Finns were standing firm.
The Finnish dispatches said the Rus-
sians had made 150 attacks along the
Svir River in two weeks, using six
divisions, four brigades, an armored
regiment, numerous ski battalions
and other combat units, and lost 14,-
000 killed in terrible charges.)
(The main fighting is going on in
the Svir River area of Karelia be-
tween Lakes Ladoga and Onega, and
the primary Russian objective is to
free the lower sections of the Mur-
mansk Railroad to clear the way
for movement southward of U.S. and
British supplies now accumulating at
In one sector of a three-day-old
breakthrough, the Russians were wid-
ening the gap in small but sure ad-
vances; in another, where the Finns
had fortifiedna town, a Red Army
unit found a weak spot at a- uncton -
of the Finnish troops, threw reserves
into the breach and compelled the
Finns to retreat with heavy losses ini
a night assault on the flank.
Two Vichy Embassy
Officials Resign
WASHINGTON, April 22. - (A -
The revolt in French official quarters
here against the collaborationist pol-
icy of Pierre Laval flared up anew
late today when Etienne Burin Des
Roziers, second secretary at the
French embassy, handed his resigna-
tion to Ambassador Gaston Henry-
He was the fifth member of the
French embassy and consular staff
to quit in protest. Earlier this after-
noon, the embassy counsellor, Leon
Marchal, followed up his resignation
by appearing at Free French head-
quarters here and announcing his
loyalty to the cause headed by Gen.
Charles DeGaulle.I
Meanwhile, London reported Mad-
agascar, the strategic French island
lying athwart the Allies' vital Cape
Route to the Indian Ocean ports and
the Middle East, to be undergoing a
reign of terror in the enforcement of
new Vichy orders to imprison Free
French sympathizers.
A dispatch to the Daily Express
from Tananarive reported orders
from Pierre Laval, Vichy's new "Chief
of Government," led to terroristic
practices in the island.
American Fliers
Claimed Captured
(By The Associated Press)
Japanese Army spokesmen in To-
kyo and Shanghai were quoted by
European radio stations yesterday as
saying that several1American airmen
who raided Japanese cities last Sat-
urday had been captured in the oc-
cupied zone of China after making
emergency landings.
The Vichy station said they were
to be taken to Shanghai to meet
newspaper correspondents.

These reports on a reverberating
episode were vague in content and
added new conflicting data to what
previously had been put out by Japa-
nese officials. In other words, it
appeared the Japanese still were try-
ing to put together a jig-saw puzzle.
Radio Tokyo, moreover, was not
heard broadcasting the same reports
offered by the Vichy, Bern, and Ber-
lin stations.

Take Them Off The Streets:
Tag Day For Fresh Air Camp
To Be Held On Campus May 1

Hit Song Of JGP Skyrockets
To Fame With Charlie Barnet

Campus organizations and student
volunteers will conduct the 22nd Uni-
versity Fresh Air Camp Tag Day Fri-
day, May 1, in the annual effort to
take the "boy on the diving board"
and 300 other under-privileged boys
off the city's streets and give them a
four weeks' summer vacation.
Proceeds from Tag Day enable boys
from Ann Arbor, Flint, Jackson and
Detroit to attend the Fresh Air Camp
on Patterson Lake in Livingston
County, where they receive physical
and psychological adjustment. Boys

ties will be in charge of separate col-
lection posts both on campus and in
downtown Ann Arbor. Fraternities
and sororities are also being solicited
for special donations. The student
committee organizing the drive is
headed by Richard Schoel, '43E.
Other committee members are: An-
drew Caughey, '43, men's posts; Mil-
dred Otto, '44, women's posts; Jack

Receiving first public recognition
at this year's Junior Girls Play, Al
Waterstone's "Why" skyrocketed into
new heights last night as Charlie Bar-
net put his 17-piece swing band
through an arrangement especially
prepared for him by Bill Rhoades,
Five minutes after the concert was
scheduled to begin, Barnet was un-
aware that such a song as "Why"
even existed. The arrangement, sent
to him weeks ago, had obviously been

sleepless days and nights on an ex-
tensive tour of one night stands,
Barnet willingly sat down to talk with
interviewers shortly before concert
time. Outside the tissue-paper walled
office, pandemonium raged among
the other 16 musicians who were bus-
ily and noisely tuning up.
Frankly-the interview was most
inadequate. Between the mascot dog,
Judy, Manager Jimmie Lamare, pho-
tographers and Buck Dawson, ques-
tions were asked but the answers got
lost. Anyhow, you can't cover a guy's
life in 15 minutes.
