Victory Gives Michigan
Tie with Boilermakers
For First in Big Ten
It was Michigan all the way yes-
terday as they easily trounced a game
Wisconsin eleven, 27-0, in a contest
that saw Fritz Crisler use 37 Wolver-
ines before a meager crowd of 15,000
fans, the smallest of the season. In
handing the Badgers their eighth loss
in nine starts, the Maize and Blue
squad pulled up on even terms with
idle Purdue in the Western Confer-
ence grid standings.;
Michigan outclassed the sadly de-
pleted Red and White team in every1
department, making 14 first downs
to the Badgers five. Bob Nusbaum-
er, who replaced the injured Elroy
Hirsch, was the offensive star of the
tilt, personally accounting for 113 of
the 294 yards the Wolverines gained
by rushing. Nussbaumer scored one
touchdown and passed to Earl Maves
for another as the 160 pound tailback
from Oak Park ripped the ragged
Badger line to shreds.
Hirsch Provides Human Interest
It was Hirsch, however, who pro-
vided the human interest angle. The
former Badger's shoulder injury had
not sufficiently healed to allow him
to play, but midway in the fourth1
period after Maves caught Nuss-
balimers pass for a score, thej
"Ghost," with his arm limp at his
side, went in to kick the extra point
against his old mates for the final
The Varsity's first score came
shortly after the game started, when,
after an exchange of punts, Nuss-
baumer carried Don Kindt's kick to
the Wisconsin 39. At this point Nuss-
0aumer and Bob Wiese alternated to
carry the ball to the one yard line.
Wiese then went over for the touch-
Just after the second quarter open-
ed, Nussbaumer faded back from. the

his interference and went wide

Get More Milk
Burger Says Situation ,
Will Improve Soon
DETROIT, Nov. 13.-(/)-Outside
supplies and increased producion
willgreatly improve the milk situa-
tion in Detroit during the next few
weeks, Carl F. Burger, attorney for
milk distributors, predicted Saturday.
"The situation, the last week," he
said, "has been at its worst. There
has been inconvenience and a cur-
tailment of supply, but there have
been few, if any, who have suffered
acutely. It may be that many per-
sons will not get all the milk they
want, but we feel that they can be
sure of getting all they need."
The question of milk supply for
weeks has hinged around a basic issue
between producer and consumer-
that of federal subsidy. A subsidy of
30 cents a hundredweight is now be-
ing paid farmer-producers in an
effort to stimulate increased produc-
tion. Some farmers in this state are
accepting the payments, but others
are refusing them because of the gen-
eral farm bloc opposition to subsidies.
Af An Arbor
To Be Adequate
Prof. Mentor L. Williams, chairman
of the Civilian Defense Consumer's
Interest Committee announced yes-
terday that although milk supplies
for Ann Arbor are slightly below
maximum consumption, the residents
of the Ann Arbor area need have no
fear of a milk shortage rivaling that
Prof. Williams, of the English De-
partment, stated that the University
dormitories as well as all the public
and parochial schools are well sup-

LONDON, Nov. 13.-American Fly-
ing Fortresses and Liberator Fighters,
fought through swarms of German
fighters, thick clouds and 50-below-
zero temperature today to batter the
vital port and communications cen-
ter of Bremen.'
Railway yards, canals, highways,
bridges and the Germans' best port
since the- destruction of Hamburg
were blasted by the American heavy
bombers which also took a toll of 33
Nazi interceptors. The accompany-
ing Thunderbolts and Lightnings ac-
counted for 10 more enemy aircraft
for a total of 43.
New Technique Used
In swamping the heavily-defended
port-using a new technique of
bombing through the clouds, Berlin
said-15 of the big bombers and nine
American fighters were reported
The Germans sent at least 100
fighters to meet the attack.
In addition to the American heavy
bomber attack, RAF fighters were al-
so out today, continuing their usual
daily blasting of enemy communica-
tions along the invasion coastline.
The size of the attacking American
force in the 800-mile roundtrip flight
was not officially disclosed.
One pilot of a supporting Lightning
fighter which helped cover the Am-
erican heavies said the Germans sent
up everything from single-engine ME
109S to JU-88 fighter-bombers shoot-
ing rocket shells.

second roundtrip flight of more than
2,000 miles within less than a week
by Liberators for a night attck on
Soerabaja, former Dutch naval base

Twenty-two tons were dropped, du-
plicating the earlier raid.
Allied planes kept up the ceaseless
attacks on shipping in the New Ire-
land-New Britain sector from which
the Japanese on Bougainville must
draw their support. A Liberator, in
the latest blow, scored a bomb hit
which damaged a 7,000 ton mer-
chantman off Kavieng, New Ireland.

long ... carferries steaming back and
forth across theStraits on a 24-hour
schedule . .. icy pavements causing
dozens of accidents. . . Office of
Price Administration agents check-

That was the scene today as thou-
sands of Michigan deer hunters con-
verged on this small northern Michi-
gan city seeking transportation
across the Straits of Mackinac to be
on the ground when the state's an-
nual 16-day hunting season opens
So heavy was the traffic that three
state-owned car ferries were unable
to keep up with it and the five-mile
line of vehicles, some with trailers,
was maintained throughout a large
part of the daylight hours.
For the thousands of deer hunters,
coming from two to six to a car it
meant hours of waiting, miles from
the ferry docks, in a temperature of
around 26 degrees.
The ferries, City of Munising, City
of Cheboygan and Straits of Mackin-

GRIM ITALIAN WINTER:
Fifth Army Meets Determined
Resistance on Road to Rome
ALLIED HEADQUARTERS, AL-
GIERS, Nov. 13,-(P)-Winter des-
cended on the Italian front in earn-
est today with the American Fifth
Army locked in grim, see-saw fight-
ing with the Germans on the main
road to Rome and the British army
still moving into position against
enemy lines along the Sangro River.
The Fifth Army made what head-
quarters described as "further local
advances against stiff resistance and
in difficult country."
The Germans in their determined
resistance have struck out at several
points and .headquarters disclosed
for the first time today that on
Thursday the Germans had beaten
the Fifth Army back and occupied
high grounds on Mount Camino,
north of the town of Mignano, stra-
tegically guarding the road to Rome.
The Allies smashed forward Fri-
day and not only regained the lost
ground but won new positions.
The Eighth Army was engaged
principally in sending out patrols,
one of which crossed the Sangro
River and wiped out a German
machine gun nest. To the south
they repelled a German counterat-
tack in brisk fighting between Allied-
held Casalagnida and Nazi-held Ates-
si, and succeeded in occupying im-
portant high ground.
The struggle during the past week
has demonstrated conclusively that
the Germans still cherish the hope
of staving off a real attack on Rome
for months, thereby nullifying any
prospects the Allies have of using
Italy as a jumping off point for
further assaults against Axis-held
Europe in the spring..
The terrain and the weather as
well as reinforcements of several
divisions which the Nazi command
moved into the line during the past
week combined to give Generals
Clark and Montgomery one of the
toughest assignments any Allied
Commanders have yet faced.
U.S. To Foot
About Half of
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Nov. 13.-
(')-The United States stands to foot
about half the bill of reconstructing
the postwar world, according to lobby
talk here as the working committees
of the United Nations Relief and Re-
habilitation Administration went to
work today behind - closed doors.
There are two leading formulas for
paying the costs.
One would assess the UNRRA na-
tions which have not been invaded
one percent of their national income.
That could mean for the- United
States a bill of two billion dollars, if
the levy is computed on the war-in-
flated year of 1943. If the levy is
computed on the last pre-war year
for us, it would mean about 900 mil-
This first plan, obviously, would
make the United States the largest
contributor, since it has the largest
per capita income.
Vatutin Smashes On;
Advance Is Aimed
Toward Polish Line
JAMES M. LONG
Associated Press Correspondent
LONDON, Nov. 13-The western
Ukraine rail and highway hubo
Zhitomir, the half-way marker on
the Russians' road from Stalingrd
to Berlin, fell today to Gen. Nikolai
Vatutin's armored assault as the Red
Army virtually split the German's
northern and southern forces and
drove to within 60 miles of the pre-
war Polish border.
In a related drive on Korosten, 45
miles north of Zhitomir, the Russ
sians smashed to within 27 miles
of that railway supply center for the
Germans' northern forces by tak-
ing the town of Malin.
The Moscow daily communique,
recorded by the Soviet Monitor, said
that more than 100 towns were taken
in the Ukrainian drive. The ("r.
mans still were sending waves of
counter-attacks against the Russian
positions near Pastov, 35 mles
southwest of Kiev, but made n
gains, the bulletin said.
Twelve Strong Points taken
Twelve heavily fortified German
strongpoints were taken in the area
south of Rechitsa, where the Us-
sians were struggling through te
marshes toward another grip on the
German supply railroad running
north from Korosten.
The fall of Zhitomir, taken in a
15-mile frontal advance, was an-
nounced by Marshal Joseph Stalin
tonight exactly a week after he had
triumphantly told the Russaza and
their allies of the fall of Kiev, M
Stalin's special order of the day
described Zhitomir, a town of 95,000
persons, as "a most important junc-
tion of communications and a pow-
erful x strongpoint of Germah de-

ITALIAN GOVERNMENT HEAD-
QUARTERS IN SOUTHERN ITALY,
Nov. 13.-(P)--Marshal Pietro Badog-
lio organized a "technical" govern -
ment today in a makeshift .mve ob-
viously forced by the flat refusal ~f
Italy's main political leaders to join
any government until King Vittorio
Emanuele has abdicated.
The Badoglio government, which
until now has been described as be-
ing simply "Badoglio and a secretary
who uses the hunt-and-peck system"
on the typewriter, was revamped to
consist now of the aged Marshal and
a series of under-secretaries and ex-
perts who will carry on the actual
business of government but who will
neither play any political role nor
participate in any policy making.
This stop-gap was necessitated by
the refusal of Italy's six leading poli-
tical parties to join in any govern-
ment under the aged Vittorio Eman-

To Leros by Air, Sea
CAIRO, Nov. 13.-(A)-The Ger-

ros from the Allied landed rein-
forcements both by boat and by par-
achute and on the second day of stiff
fighting got a footing on the north-
west corner of the tiny Aegean island,
it was disclosed officially today.
The Germans dropped numerous
parachutists in the center of Leros
as sea-borne invaders landed on the
coasts, and Nazi dive-bombers at-
tacked the British and Italian de-
fenders repeatedly. Landings were
made on the west coast.
Reports from the island continue
to be sketchy as the Allies fought off
the second day of attack. No authori-
tative person in Cairo was hazarding
any predictions on the eventual out-

world famous contralto will give the
second concert of the Choral Union
Series at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow in Hill

In spite of her long years of train-
ing in both Europe and America Miss
Anderson still constantly seeks out
the coaching services of various song
specialists. During one summer she
was coached in the works of Gustave
Mahler by Mme. Charles Cahier; she
studied Italian songs with Jeni Sa-
dero of Rome and French songs with
Mme. Geramine de Castro.
"At the beginning of the war the
Russians adopted a defensive depth
strategy and followed a policy of
trading space for time," Capt. Sergei
N. Kournakoff said in a lecture last
night on "The Russian Army and Its

"Under these circumstances a rd-
treat based upon counterattack and
giving them time to complete mobili-

the Russians to adopt. A country can
conduct a depth defensive only when
it is large enough. Russia has plenty
