An enemy light cruiser was sent to
the bottom of the Bismark Sea
Thursday night 22 miles southwest
of Kavieng New Ireland, by three
bomb hits scored by Liberators.
Five heavy cruisers, two light crui-

Indiana, 23-6
Loss of Daley and Pregilman Felt
In Wolverines' Spotty Performance
Michigan's Wolverines informed 20,000 fans that they missed Big Bill
Daley and Merv Pregulman by their ragged performance in downing a
dogged Indiana eleven, 23-6, yesterday afternoon in the Stadium here.
The Maize and Blue gridders proved that you can't remove two vital
parts of a machine and continue to perform smoothly, for both the work of
the backs and the linemen was spotty.
Hunchy Is Frustrated
There were thousands of eyes on the Hodsiers' highly publicized passing
phenomenon, Bob (Hunchy) Hoernschemeyer. Although this talented
freshman heaved a touchdown aerial<

'Think To Win'
Is Theme of
Armny Contest
6th Service Command
Offers Its Personnel
Prizes and Promotions
All War Department personnel of
the Sixth Service Command are eli-
gible to participate in the "Think To
Win" pogram to save men, money,
material'and time, according to an
order recently issued by Maj-Gen
Henry S. Aurand, Commanding Gen-
eral of the Sixth Service Command.
All officers, enlisted men and ci-
vilians in the Sixth Service Command
personnel may enter the contest,
which began Thursday and contin-
ues through Sunday, Nov. 21. All
contributions must be mailed by mid-
night of that date.
Promotions will be made to offi-
cers and enlisted men whose sugges-
tions are judged best, while civilians
who win will be awarded war bonds.
The purpose of the "Think To
Win" program is to give the per-
sonnel of the Service Command an
opportunity to convert any ideas to
save four vital commodities in the
war, men, money, material and time,
into definite suggestions according
to the announcement.
'"It is the undeniable responsibility
of those of us in the Sixth Service
Command to conserve these all-im-
portant items so that American sol-
diers who are fighting all over the
world will have what they need,
where they need it, when they need
it. Any suggestion which is withheld
is a breach of faith with the men
in combat," the announcement said.
Suggestions need not conform to
existing Army Regulations, Circulars
or Directives. The Army Service
Forces and War Department are will-
ing to change existing regulations to
meet practical suggestions of the
field.
The announcement stated that only
one yardstick will be used, "Will it
work?"
Enlisted personnel whose sugges-
tions are judged best will receive in-
creases in grade, or, if no longer in
the Service Command, letters of com-
mendation to the Commanding Offi-
cers. The Legion of Merit will be
awarded those suggestions which
warrant it.

cers in the rank of 2nd lieutenant

to End Pete Pihos for Indiana's lone
score, he completed only four of 16
passes and had four intercepted, one
for a touchdown. And to make mat-
ters worse, Hunchy was trapped in
the end zone on an attempted pass
and stepped out for a Michigan
safety.
For the Wolverines it was their
fourth straight Conference victory
and their sixth win in seven starts.
The triumph together with Purdue's
last-minute victory over Minnesota
kept both teams in a tie for the Con-
ference lead.
Hirsch Is Injured
Elroy Hirsch, the Wisconsin boy
with the slicing, hop-skip motion in
his ,stride, sparked the Wolverine
offensive in the first half. The Bad-
ger-turned-Wolverine bucked across
from the two after a 67-yard advance
in the first period.
And it was Hirsch, whose tally was
his eleventh -of the season, again
when Michigan .made it 14-0 in the
second period :t'he Wolverines were
on Indiana's 43 when Hirsch faded
back to midfield and flipped a high,,
arching, wobbly pass to Wally Drey-
er. The p3ony back took it over his..
shoulder on a; dead run on the 12
and raced ovei' 'for the TD. It was
the man-in-motion play, Dreyer's
speed allowing him to get beyond
Hoernscherneyer. Hirsch injured his
shoulder and did not play the second
half.
The Hoosiers who could advance
no further than Michigan's 33 in the
first half, scored midway in the third
period. And it was Indiana's other
wingman, Frank Hoppe, who set up
the touchdown play.
Lateral Goes Astray
Three Girls
Head Business,
Staff of Daily
Senior appointments for the Daily
business staff for the fall term have
been approved by the Board in Con-
trol of Student Publications for Molly
Winokur, '44BAd, as business mana-
ger, and for Elizabeth Carpenter, '45,
and Martha Opsion, '44, as assistant
business managers.
Miss Winokur, whose home is in
Detroit, is vice-president of her sor-
ority, Sigma Delta. She worked on

Michigan attempted a lateral be-
hind the line with Bob Nussbaumer,
reserve halfback and Wolverine
trackman, on the flipping end.
Hoppe, one of eight starting Hoosier
freshmen, waltzed in to grab the ball
in midair on the Michigan 47. Nuss-
baumer, with a terrific burst of
speed, overhauled him on the seven.
On the third play Hunchy flipped to
Pihos who burrowed under a pile of
Wolverines to score. Captain John
Tavener's conversion try failed.
Michigan's lone score in the third
period was after Hoernschemeyer's
safety. Here's how that happened.
Indiana had been penalized 15 yards
to her three. On the second play
Hoernschemeyer faded back almost
into the stands before-tossing the
ball and itwans ruled a safety. Tackle
Bob Derleth almost nailed him a few
seconds prior to the toss.
Smeja Scores on Interception
The Wolverines came to life early,
in the fourth period. On the first
playa End Rudy Smeja snagged a
Hoernschemeyer special out of the
air on the 35 and ran unmolested
through a maze of Hoosier gridders
for Michigan's third touchdown. A
terrific block by "Half-Pint" Dreyer
cut down one potential Hoosier tack-
ler.
Rex Wells, a Marine transfer from
Idaho State College, booted the try
for extra point after all three touch-
downs. His kickoff boots lacked the
distance of Pregulman's, however.
Michigan, whose sole defeat this
fall was that 35-12 fiasco with Notre
Dame, outrushed the Hoosiers 269
yards to 124. And Bob Wiese, the
Dakota boy, picked up where Daley
left off at fullback to gain most of
the Wolverine yardage.

Capture of Kiev
Climaxes ,:Four
Months' Drive.
Stalin Predicts 'Real
Second Front' Soon;
Soviets Invade Crimea
By JUDSON O'QUINN
Associated Press Correspondent
LONDON, Nov. 6.-The Red Army
climaxed its four months' offensive
today by liberating Kiev, mother of
Russian cities, on the eve of the 26th
anniversary of the Soviet Revolution
and Premier Marshal Joseph Stalin
told a gaily celebrating Moscow that
Germany now "stands at the edge of
catastrophe" and that "a real second
front" is near.'
The Russians also announced they
had invaded the Crimea from the
east and had firmly established
bridgeheads on the Kerch Peninsula
both north and south of the town of
Kerch, the one to the north being
six miles wide and four. miles deep,
Half a dozen towns and strongly-
fortified German strongpoints were
captured in the landing operations
which smashed back constant Ger-
man counterattacks.
The Russians smashed on 19 miles
south of ruined Kiev to Vasilkov,
heading toward a junction with the
bridgehead already extended across
the river from Pereyaslav, the Mos-
cow daily communique, recorded by
the Soviet Monitor, said.
The fall of Kiev was announced by
Stalin in a special order of the day
in which he indicated this master
stroke opened the way for freeing
all the rich, western Ukraine.
More than 60 towns west and
south of Kiev were taken as the Red
Army, continuing its drive, forged
west and south less than 130 miles
from the old Polish border. Great
German losses in men and material
littered the city and the roads, but

Mine Explosion
Kills Nine Men,
Injures Two
NELLIS, W. VA., Nov. 6.-()-
Nine men lost their lives and two oth-
ers were hurt tonight after a local
gas explosion wrecked a section of
the No. 3 mine of American Rolling
Mill company, which had resumed
work only two days ago after the
general mine shutdown.
Only 11 men were in the mine at
the time of the blast, the. first in 17
years, said Superintendent A. E. Oak-
ley.
Two were brought out alive and
sent to hospitals at Charleston, 25
miles away.
The other nine were known to be
dead and seven of the bodies had
been located at midnight, four and a
half hours after the disaster, Oakley
said.
The explosion occurred in a me-
chanical loading section where 11
men were at work.
Rescue crews had a considerable
distance to travel to the scene and
company officials asserted that they
had no information on injury or loss
of life.
The mine employs 284 men.

ISTANBUL, Nov. 6.-(P)-Specu-
lation that Turkey was about to en-
ter the war was firmly denied today
by the newspaper Aksham which said
the Cairo talks are only for Turkey's
information and do not concern the
giving of Turkish bases to the Allies.
Referring to the conference be-
tween Turkish Foreign Minister Nu-
man Menemencioglu and British For-
eign Secretary Anthony Eden who
is returning from the tri-partite dis-
cussions in Moscow, the newspaper
said: "The Cairo talks are not an
extension of the Moscow Conference.
The single aim of the meeting is for
Eden to give Britain's ally Turkey
full information upon questions and
discussions there."
(The Bari Radio of the Marshal
Pietro Badoglio government in Italy,
meanwhile, said "It is already agreed
that Turkey will cede a number of
important bases to the Allies."
(The broadcast, recorded by the
Federal Communications Commis-
sion, said the cession is on the same
basis as Portugal's Azores Islands.
(Berlin broadcasts reported the Al-
lies would ask Turkey for bases and
demand that she enter the war pn
the Allied side. It said Menemenci-
oglu would return to Ankara tomor-
row and that the results of the tatks
will be announced next Tuesdywe

Orchestra.
Although he is only 31 years of
age, Leinsdorf has already won wide
recognition for his performances of
the German repertoire of the Metro-
politan Opera Association and has
conducted operatic and symphonic
performances in Germany, Italy,
Canada and the United States.
The conductor regards his engage-
ment as coach for the Salzburg Fest-

career. He returned to Salzburg in
the three succeeding summers, work-
ing in Italian cities in the winter
season. It was in 1937 that he came
to America as assistant to Artur
Bodanzky. Upon Bodanzky's sudden
death in 1939, the whole responsi-
bility of the Wagnerian operas fell
upon his shoulders.
