Irish Sfe orst

Defeat Since


Great Power and Deception Mark
Rough Offensive Play by Both Teams
Special to The Daily
SOUTH BEND, Nov, 14.-Michigan and Notre Dame bridged the 33 .year
gap in their football relations today with an explosive display of offensive
fireworks that had a howling mob of 57,000 spectators screaming in the
aisles pf' Notre Dame Stadium as a sensational third period Wolverine scor-
ing splurge gave Michigan a stunning 32-20 victory.
Keyed to a fighting pitch, the Wolverines unleashed a savage third
quarter ground attack that netted them three quick decisive touchdowns
and sent them soaring far ahead of the Ramblers in the Wildest grid contest
staged this season.
Not since 1,916, when Army walloped them by a score of 30 to 10, have
the Irish been administered such an authoritative drubbing. Twice, Michi-

Battle Japs
in Solomons
Both Sides Suffering
Losses in First Big
Naval Engagement in
Area Since Oct. 28
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.- Power-
ful groups of American and Japanese
warships were slugging it out in the
vicinity of the Solomon Islands today
in an aftermath of a heavy American
naval bombardment of enemy posi-
tions on Guadalcanal
Both sides have "suffered losses,"
a Navy communique said, but it ad-
ded that no details would be reported
while the battle continues because of
the value of such information to the
The communique desgribed the bat-
tle as "a series of naval engagements."
This was authoritatively interpreted
to mean that the ships of both sides
were widely deployed in the Solomons
area so that the battle consists of a
number'of individual actions between
groups of ships, rather than a single
mass fight.
Aircraft Participates
It seemed probable that aircraft
were participating fully, both as wea-
pons of attack and as the eyes of the
opposing fleets, although the commu-
nique made no mention of them.
First word of the fresh outburst of
sea warfare in and around the battle-
scarred islands-where the airfield on
Guadalcanal is the prize which Japan
seeks and the United States is deter-
mined to hold-came today from
The Japanese broadcast that they
had lost two destroyers and more
than ten aircraft and had a battleship
damaged. They claimed-wholly
without confirmation from other
sources-that Allied losses had been
six cruisers and one destroyer snk,
19 planes shot down, two cruisers and
three destroyers heavily damaged ani
three transports set afire.

Bara Is Featured
in Cinema Series
The now-famous technique of
Theda Bara, the "vamp with a rose,"
which made the loving husband de-
sert his wife and child for the road
of drink and ruin, will again be
brought to life in the tragic film, "A
Fool There Was," produced in 1914.
This picture and three other silent
films will be shown by the Art Cine-
ma League at 7 and 9 p.m. today in
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theater as
the second program in the current
series describing a history of the
American film. Tickets may be pur-
chased for this single performance
or for the entire series.
Other notable stars of the silent
era will be shown in this group of
films which were produced between
the years, 1912 and 1917. The .trials
of a sweet girl who gets into diffi-
culty merely because she wanted one
particular hat is portrayed by Mary
Pickford with Lionel Barrymore in
the picture, "The New York Hat."
Those who are 'not interested in
the tribulations of the heart will find
what they want in the actions of
Wm. S. Hart whose dashing gun play
will be depicted in the picture, "The
Fugitive." The comedy relief of these
films will be provided by Ben Turpin
and Wallace Beery who are featured
in "The Clover Dummy."

gan came from behind before it fin-{
ally overtook the ermbattled Irish,
once in the opening period and again
in their amazingthird quarter touch-
down bonanza.
Offense Predominates
From start to finish, this battle was
one sustained march, with first Notre
Dame and then the Wolverines eat-
ing up large chunks of yardage with
smashing power drives. But once the
second half began the Maize and Blue
superiority established itself. The
Wolverines amassed the total of 19
first downs and 319 yards by rush-
king, while the best the Irish could
do was muster 15 first downs and 170
yards along the ground.
Throughout, the struggle was a
smashing exhibition of power and de-
ception. The two gridiron titans
slashed each other with every known
trick in football's book of wizardry
before the Wolverines- reignited their
scoring spark to come roaring back
from the brink of defeat. The rabid
fans, who weren't treated to moments
of inaction from the opening kickoff
until the last play, received the grid-
iron bargain that the football world
has awaited . since 1909 as the two
aggregations called upon every avail-
able source of offensive strength to
gain the ultimate triumph.
Michigan Power Wins
In the long run it was Michigan
power proving too much for Notre
Dame aerial thrusts. The Wolverine

Wiese and Don Robinson, literally

WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.- Senator
Connally (Dem.-Tex.) told a short-
handed Senate today that Sergeant-
at-Arms Chesley W. Jurney had or-]
dered a deputy to "break down the
doors of Senators' offices" in an effort
to compel attendance of a quorum for
discussion of a motion to take up the
controversial anti-poll tax bill.
"This is a perfect outrage," Connal-
ly declared. "It is in line, however,
with the unconstitutional, unwarran-
ted and outrageous actions of a group
in this Senate."
Senate attaches told newspapermen
that Jurney had deputized John J.
Kearney, custodian of the Senate of-
fice building, to unlock the offices of
absent Senators who were believed to
be in the city.
Kearney Acts
Theattaches said Kearney went to
the building immediately to carry out
the mission.
"If anybody broke down the door of
my office he wouldn't be in any shape
to break down any doors for at least
24 hours," Connally told the Senators;
Only three more members were
needed to gain a quorum-which al-
most certainly would mean the re-
sumption of a filibuster begun yester-
day by Senator Bilbo (Dem.-Miss.)
Senate attaches said it had been
many years since the Senate had been
forced to order the arrest of members
in an effort to obtain a quorum. The
chamber's only alternative, however,

For three hours and 42 minutes af-
ter it convened at noon, a minority of

Reports Say Troops
Cross Border 80 Miles
From City of Tunis
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Nov. 14. (Sunday)-Pow-
erful American and British forces
struck toward Tunis by land, sea and
air today for a showdown clash'with
German and Italian troops who con-
tinued to land in increasing numbers
despite resistance of French forces
reported led by Gen. Henri Girud.
The exact position of the Allied
vanguard was not known, but some
reports said U.S. and British ground
forces already were pouring across
the Tunisian border, only 80 miles
from Tunis, and that parachute
troops were preparing to land in the
30 Miles from Tunisia
Authorized dispatches from Lieut.
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's head-
quarters indicated that the main body
was somewhere east of the Algerian
town of Bone, 50 miles from the Tuni-.
;ian frontier, and that it was advan-
cing rapidly, with strong naval and
air support.
These reports also said the Ger-
mans and Italians, trying desperately
to establish themselves in Tunis and
Bizerte before the Allies arrived, were
rushing reinforcements both by sea
and air.
Aerial observation showed that
French and German troops already
were engaged in fierce fighting
through the narrow, winding streets
of the capital and struggling for pos-
session of airports on its outskirts.
The Tunisian garrisons who have
been fighting the Germans for four
lays are under the leadership of Gen-
-ral Henri Giraud, the Independent
French news agency in London re-
"he communique said.
Vazi Transports Downed
That Hitler had decided to make a
serious stand in Tunisia and perhaps
wven was hopeful of forming a junc-
;ion between Axis forces in West
9frica and Marshal Erwin Rommel's
:leeing Africa Corps .became obvious
when long distance Allied pursuit
olanes shot down seven of a fleet of
)erhaps 60 Axis transport planes fly-
ng northward from Tunisia.
As the troop carriers were thought
to have been empty at the time of the
attack, military observers deduced
hat they had transported men and
upplies to Tunis and were on the
'eturn trip to Italy for another load.
It was known that German light tanks
had reached Tunisia, probably.by air.
IHeavy British bombers attacked the
main Tunis airport. for the third
straight night, destroying ground in-
:tallations and large. quantities ..of
Tasoline and other supplies.
Eighth Army Adv~nces
Spurred by its commander, General,
B. L. Montgomery, the victorious
British Eighth Army intensified its
'ursuit of the demoralized Germans
m the coastal road west of Tobruk
.n Libya, and, with its air force in-
licting dreadful punishment on
ammed Axis' columns, prepared to
wipe out the Africa Corps.
The Vichy radio revealed that Gen-
:ral Lattre De Tassigny, commander

,)f the Montepellier military region in

short-lived revolt a few days prior to
the German march into unoccupied
Upon learning Nov. 8 that General
Henri Honore Giraud had gone to
