A timely last minute basket by
Ted Berce enabled Michigan to
come from behind and defeat a gal-
lant Indiana five, 54-53, giving the
Wolverines the inaugural victory in
the 1945 Big Ten race.
The Wolverines led throughout the
second half but the Hoosiers sparked
by Ray Brandenburg's two baskets
and scores by Al Kralovansky and
Gene Fars surged ahead, 53-50. Bob
Geahan then hit for the Wolverines
and Berce followed with his game-
winning marker, a one-handed push
shot from the right side of the floor.
Geahan Is High Man
Michigan's high point man for the
evening was Geahan, who dumped
in seven field goals and one charity
toss for 15 points. Indiana's scoring
punch revolved around Kralovansky
and Gene Faris who tallied 31 points
between them.
During the first half the lead
changed hands eight times with
Michigan finally going ahead, 27-
25, at the intermission. Early scores
by Don Lindquist and Keith Harder
gave Michigan a 3-0 lead but Indiana
quickly countered and regained the
edge, 8-7, on Brandenburg's shot
under the basket. Faris made it 10-7,
but the Wolverines then took the
initiative and went ahead, 11-10, on
Geahan's two free throws.
Lead Changes Hands
The score then changed hands
four times with Geahan again com-
ing through on a push shot to put
the Wolverines on top, 25-23. Don
Lund sunk a free throw making it
26-24, and a pair of charity tosses by
Kralovansky and one by Walt Kell
concluded the half-time scoring.
The play during the first half was
unusually rough, with 15 fouls being

during that period," he said.
Bliska went on to say that he
felt the student interest was a con-
tinuation of the revived campus
spirit that exhibited itself earlier
in the semester for the flomecom-
ing week-end and Kampus Kapers.
Paul John, '46, chairman of the
social committee of the Michigan
Union, who led the candidates in
number of votes cast, declared yes-

* Ballot makers had not counted
on the unusually heavy voting yes-
terday, and in several cases, after
the supply of ballots had run out,
students voted on ordinary note-
book paper. These ballots were
counted as official by the Judi-
ciary Council.
"I believe the election was handled
very efficiently, and I could find no
evidence of any dishonesty connec-
ted with it," Bliska declared. "A few
ballots were destroyed because stu-
dents had voted for more than one
school's candidates, but not enough
votes were thrown out to have affec-
ted the outcome of the election.
Postmen Ask
For Clean Wank
Oswald J. Koch, Ann Arbor post-
master, has appealed to local house-
holders to use "salt or cinders, even a
shovel" to clear slippery snow from
dwelling entrances.
He explained that icy, snowy steps
and porches constitute a hazard for
mail carriers. "Postal regulations do
not compel the postmen to deliver
mail when danger is involved and
while each resident should be con-
cerned about the safety of members
of his family in ascending and des-
cending the front steps of his home,
he should also consider those whose
daily rounds take them and their
mail sacks to his door," he stated.

New Provisional Gover n1ent

LONDON, Jan. 5-Soviet Russia brought to a head one of the thorni-
est problems facing the impending "Big Three" parley today by extending
formal recognition to the Polish Provisional Government of Lublin and
making a clean break With the exiled Polish regime in London, which is
supported by the United States and Great Britain.
The Soviet move emphasized with finality the inability of Russia, the

smashed back powerful German
counterattacks northeast of Buda-

great tank, airplane and infantry
battle. To the southeast the Soviets'
Yugoslav Allies announced they were
fighting on the soil of Austria after
crossing the Styrian frontier.
As the entire eastern front ap-
peared to be stirring in preparation
for great winter operations, Berlin
reported new Russian stabs 120 miles
below Warsaw which may herald an
all-out Soviet offensive on that long-
dormant front.

Diplomatic and military observers

The Soviets severed relations with
the London Polish Government in
April, 1943, in a dispute over the
finding of the graves of thousands of
Polish officers in the forests near

new and coordinated knowledge
which has developed in the field of
environmental sanitation.
To Study Food Sanitation
Early consideration will be given
