find it more economical to eat out. A

Buckeyes Regain Big
Ten Title in Thrilling
Game Before 72,O00
By DAVE LOEWENBERG
Associate Sports Editor
Special to Thes aily
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 25.-Regain-
ing the Big Ten title which they lost
last year to Michigan and Purdue,
Ohio State came from behind in the
closing minutes of play to whip a
gallant Michigan team, 18-14, before
a throng of 72,000 suspense-ridden
Several bad breaks caused the
Wolverines' downfall. At the outset
of the second half with Michigan
ahead, 7-6, the Wolverines drove
deep into Ohio territory only to have
their attack bog down as the result
of a costly fumble. The Bucks failed
to capitalize on this break and were
forced to punt.
Fumble Proves Costly
Two running plays netted four
yards and then another Wolverine
fumble was recovered on the Michi-
gan 23 yard stripe. Seven plays later,
Les Horvath scored from the one
yard line. Gordon Appleby, Buckeye
captain and center, made both of
Lady Luck pointed another evil
finger at Michigan in the fourth
quarter. After an 83-yard drive had
put the Wolverines on top, 14-12, a
poor kickoff gave Ohio a first down
on their 49 yard line. The Buckeyes
covered 52 yards in 14 plays, with
Horvath going over for his second
score from' the three yard line.
Bucks Stalled Momentarily
After Ohio's Bob Brugge had re-
turned the opening kickoff to the
34 yard line, Horvath and Brugge in
six rushes carried the pigskin to
Michigan's 41. The Buckeyes were
stalled momentarily and they punted
to Chubb who was downed on the
eight. Gene Derricotte made it a first

WASHINGTON, NOV. 25-!PA)-The
quarrel between Russia, and Pol-
and's exile government in London
has reached an extremely danger-
ous stage, authorities here say.
It is threatening to become a can-
cerous growth in the future peace of
Europe and thus a source of poison
to the security of the whole postwar
Such is the grave view taken of
possibilities stemming from the res-
ignation of Stanislaw Mikolajczyk
as Premier of the Exile Government.
Mikolajcyk bore the hopes of both
Washington and London for a
friendly, workable settlement be-
tween the London Poles and Moscow.
The British and American Govern-
ments now will try to close the breach
again. Conferences of State Depart-
ment experts today indicated the
whole question is being subjected to
most intense study. President Roose-
velt, who knows Mikolajczyk as a
result of his visit here early this
year, evidently was being kept cloely
informed of developments.

Premier Hubert Pierlot.
F. Demany, Belgian resistance lead-
er, said four civilians were killed and
38 wounded in the clash with state
The police, however, said six gen-
darmes were injured with fists and
sticks-not by gunfire-and that 20-
odd demonstrators were wounded.
Col. Miller will stress two points in
his address: cost of transporting self-
propelled projectiles, in terms of
damage inflicted upon the enemy and
efficiency in operation of the rocket,
from the engineering standpoint.
"The job of the Army is obvious-
ly to destroy the opposing army,"
Col. Miller said. "Air bombs are
designed to destroy the enemy's
power to resist whether it be hu-
man or productive power."
Stating that jet-propelled bombs
are spectacular from the public
standpoint, Col. Miller explained that
transportation and engineering prob-
lems of self-propelled projectiles, es-
pecially air-borne projectiles, have
always been a puzzle to the Army.

minded people who cannot affQrd
