Top Honors
in Scrap Drive
Manpower Corps to
Send Students Today
to Harvest Sugar Beet
Crops in Mt. Clemens
By BOB PREISKEL
Three Axis bad boys are helping
Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity make
one of the strongest bids on campus
for top honors in the all-out scrap
drive which ends tomorrow night.
A huge oil tank has been set up in
front of the house, and three openings
in that tank have been turned into
the gaping mouths of Hitler, Hirohito
and Mussolini."
All day every day, the'Lambda Chi
boys are busy throwing scrap metal
into :those jaws, "choking the bad
boys.iwith the scrap that will beat
them in this war.
But Theta Delta Chi, a sure winner
in ;the fraternity division according
to the Theta Delts, still has four'aces
up its seye.'
The Theta Delt members have
found a truck and three old cars, lying
idle, i. -nearby fields. They will spend
all dIay today dismantling them and
adding them to the scrap pile in front
of their house.
Althoughthe drive ends officially
tomorrow night, any junk you can
find and throw on your pile before
the Manpower Corps trucks pick it up
on Tuesday will count for your house.
Meanwhile, yesterday's football
game threw a slight block into the
salvage campaign, but according to
Boss Borman, the salvage drive has
recovered its stride and 150 Manpower
Corps men will be at work today on
University scrap piles.
Volunteers from the Manpower
Corps are' still' at work on the farm
front. Thirty of them are harvesting
beets at Mt. Clemens today in what
Mary Borman called "one of the fin-
est responses and efforts to date."
"We told the fellows that they
wouldn't make much money, and that
the work would be hard, but they all
felt that they were in this to do their
part and really turned out to work
when we explained the situation to
them," he said.
British Repulse
Nazis in Egypt
CAIRO, Oct. 31.- (iP)- The British
Eighth Army methodically whittled
down German strength today in the
western Egyptian desert, consolidated
its newly won positions and repulsed
counter-attacks while maintaining
air supremacy with the help of
American planes.
.The German radio said the British
resumed the attack early Satuday,
wheeling up reinforcements especially
of artillery and tanks.1
Still there was no major tank bat-
tle and the German counter-attacks
were made only with infantry and
light armor.

Identity OfIVessel
Is Still Unknown
Japs' Second Attack Sends Ship to
Bottom; Casualties Reported Light,
By The Associated Pressr
WASHINGTON, Oc. 31.-Sinking of another U.S. aircraft carrier-the
fourth-in the furious air and sea battle for control of the South Pacific,
was announced by the Navy tonight, leaving only three American carriers
known to be still in action.
The latest victim of two Japanese aerial attacks was not identified by
the Navy.
She went down near the Santa Cruz islands, a tiny spot in the Pacific
about 250 miles northeast of Guadalcanal in the same battle which cost
the U.S. Fleet the Destroyer Porter
last Sunday night (Washington of action had been received from that
time. 1-1--..f+I, 1%nF~t of+ha ~n~~nn

How to Make Touchdowns ... in Two Ways

Salvage Attempted/
'The first assault on the carrier,
which came before noon, caused
heavy damage. She was put in tow in
an effort to salvage the big vessel, but
the Japanese returned in the after-
noon. Bombing and torpedo planes
roared in to attack. This time the at-
tackers inflicted damage below the
water line of the helpless carrier.
She began to list. Orders were given
for removal of the personnel and most
of them were saved. Then came the
final orders-instructions to complete
destruction of the crippled ship.
Name Not Disclosed
The Navy said the name of the lost
ship would -not be disclosed until after
next of kin of all injured' or missing
had been notified.
The vessel presumably came from
among four vessels listed in Jane's
registry of fighting ships-the Sara-
toga, a converted carrier, commis-
sioned in 1925, with a tonnage of
33,000; the Hornet, commissioned
1940, tonnage 19,900; the Ranger,,
commissioned 1933, tonnage 14,500
and the Enterprise, commissioned
1936, tonnage 19,900.
Each of these carriers has a normal
complement of between 1,800 and
2,100 officers and men. Each, too,I
carried a striking force of about 85
airplanes-bombers, torpedo planes
and fighters.
"Enemy Loses, Too
Previously the Navy had announced
the loss of three of the seven carriers
which the United States had at the
start of the war. Among them was the
Wasp, newest of the carriers, which
went down in the battle of the Solo-
mons on September 15. The Lexington
was lost in the Coral Sea battle May
8 and the Yorktown in the battle of

phaseotheP eo theomons.
Not Sure of Jap Fleet
Knox, in telling a press conference
yesterday of the disappearance of the
Japanese fighting, transport and sup-
ply ships from the Guadalcanal zone,
said that while it was known some of
the vessels had gone to Japanese
bases, he was not sure that all had
returned to various ports.-
That left the possibility that unitsi
of the enemy force which had not
returned to base might be reassem-
bling elsewhere for a new try at join-
ing with Japanese land forces in re-
ducing the American defenses at
Guadalcanal - or that they might
rendezvous with another enemy task
force for some fresh assignment.

Allies Destroy
Jap Cruiser
in Solomons
MacArthur's Bombers
Blow Up Ship at Buin
By The Associated Press
HEADQUARTERS OF GENERAL
MACARTHUR, Australia, Nov. 1.
(Sunday)- One Japanese cruiser
was destroyed and another severely
damaged in the third straight attack
by Allied bombers on shipping in the
harbor at Buin in the northern Solo-
mons, the high command announced
today.
Coming in on the target area, some
300 miles northwest of Guadalcanal,
just before dawn today as they did in
yesterday's previous large scale bom-
bardment, the heavy bombers dropped
18 tons of explosives. A direct hi
blew up a cruiser, the sixth Jap war-
ship sunk or believed sunk by Mac-
Arthur's bombers in a month of oper-
ations.
A light cruiser was damaged severe-
ly and a direct hit was scored on a
merchant vessel. Near misses were
believed to have damaged other ships.
Only the day before, three waves of
bombers damaged a big warship, be-
lieved to be either a cruiser or a bat-
tleship, probably damaged an aircraft
carrier, also another cruiser, a de-
stroyer and set ablaze an unidentified
vessel in the Buin-Faisi area.
The communiqcue referred to the
previous raid, noting that reports had
come in, hitherto not announced, of
the results of bombing by medium
units which made up the second of
the three waves of that attack.

Illinois No
Match for
'M' Eleven
Varied Ground, Air
Attack Hits Pay Dirt
Four Times as Like
Puts on the Pressure '
I By BUD HENDEL
Daily Sports Editor
An inspired Michigan eleven, lashed
a vaunted Illinois team with an over-
whelming "assortment of power for
four periods in Michigan Stadium
yesterday to hammer out an impres-
sive 28-14 triumph and thunder back
into the thick of the Western Confer-
ence title picture.
Shaking off all effects of their
heartbreaking loss to Minnesota last
week,'the Wolverines rode roughshod
over the waning Illini outfit that had
beaten the Gophers to score in every
perlod and win going away before a
erowd of 33,000 enthusiastic Michigan
rooters.
Yesterday's victory was the fourth
of the season and the second Con-
ference win for the Maize and Blue.
Illinois now'has a Conference mark
of two triumphs and, one, loss, the
same 'as Michigan.
White Scores First
A perfect 19-yard pass from the
fingertips of Tom Kuzma to Paul
White gave Michigan a touchdown
advantage at the end of the opening
quarter. The Illini surged back to
knot the count in the second period,
but the Wolverines countered again
on a 69 yard march to enjoy a 14-7
halftime lead. It was all Michigan af-
ter that, although Illinois did swarm
downfield for a benighted touchdown
late in the' fourth period.
For Michigan the scoring was dis-
tributed among White and Bob Chap-
puis, Bob Wiese and chunky Bob
Stenberg. White tallied on the Kuzma
pass, while the others all crossed the
double line on straight line smashes.
Illinois, unable to crack the Wolverine
line, resorted to the aerial lanes for
its two touchdowns. Don Griffin
flipped to Elmer Engel for the first
One, and Art Dufelmeier threw to Jim
McCarthy for the final Illinois vista.
Except for their touchdown drives,
Illinois was completely throttled.' The
Michigan forward wall relinquished
only a scant total of 69 yards along
the ground.
Wistert Leads Way
Those Michigan linemen were the
"Seven Oak Posts" in every sense of
the term yesterday. They beat-the
Illini to the punch time after time,
and led by a bruising tackle in Al Wis-
tert, who more than lived up to all
