Germans Driven from Greece in



Ground Attack
Is Effective in
First Periods
Wolverines Score
Six Touchdowns
Associate Sports Editor
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 4.-Rolling
up the highest score in the history
of this intersectional classic, Michi-
gan's spectacular running attack
continued undaunted yesterday as
the Wolverines pounded out a smash-
ing 41-19 triumph over a bewildered
University of Pennsylvania squad
before 45,000 fans at Franklin Field.
The Maize and Blue were in com-
plete control of the situation all the
way; and duing the first half, Mich-
igan connected for fivestouchdowns
with the ever-dependable Joe Pon-
setto registering four conversions.
The most spectacular scoring out-
burst of the game occurred in the
second quarter when with four min-
utes to play Michigan amassed three
scores and cliked on two of the
three extra points.
Rout Begins
The first of this trio of scores came
as a result of a 47 yard touchdown
pass from Ponsetto to Art Renner,
who caught the ball on the 15-yard
line and continued unmolested over
the goal line.
Michigan then kicked off to the
Quakers, and on the first play Don
Lund intercepted Al Sica's pass and
the Wolverines took over on the Penn
23-yard line. One running play failed
and then Howard Yerges, second
string quarterback, tossed a 25-yard
touchdown pass to Bruce Hilkene
who was camped in the end zone.
Ralph Chubb missed the kick and
the score was 27-0.
The same procedure was followed
on the next kickoff, only this time
Charley Wahl made the interception
on the Penn 30 and ran the ball back
to the three-yard line. A lateral pass,
Yerges to Jack Weisenberger, hit
pay dirt and with Ponsetto's suc-

Red Army Assaults

LONDON, NOV. 4-Russian tank

swept Budapest today as other Soviet
troops 50 miles to the southeast top-
pled the Tisza River stronghold of
Szolnok in a great wheeling move-
mentaon the imperilled Hungarian
Premier-Marshal Joseph Stalin
announced in an order of the day the
fall of Szolnok on the double-trunk
railway into Budapest. The Germans
were sent reeling northward, their
direct escape route into the capital
severed. Forty more Hungarian lo-
calities were seized, the Soviet bul-
letin said.
Berlin announced that the Rus-
sians temporarily had seized Vecses
and Ullo, only five and eight miles
southeast of Budapest, but said they
were then thrown out of those rail
towns in fierce counter-attacks.
French radio broadcasts said Red
Army tank spearheads already had
broken into Budapest's suburbs, but
this was not confirmed by Moscow.
However, dispatches from the Soviet
capital and Berlin broadcasts said
Russian artillery and planes were
pumping explosives into the capital.
A Budapest dispatch relayed by
Berlin said Soviet planes roared con-
stantly over the Danube city, bomb-
ing and machinegunning streets
clogged with German troops, tank
and gun columns and knots of fran-
tic civilians.
Long caravans of vehicles jammed
with fugitives and their scanty pos-
sessions flowed westward across the
Danube bridges out of the city as
German reinforcements passed them
enroute to the battle line in the city's
outskirts, the broadcast said.

Speaking in the same city where

Mr. Roosevelt conceded that his

man divisions."
States Credo
Dewey summed up the credo of
his campaign in these words:
"Openly and in plain words John
Bricker and I, in the name of the
Republican Party, are dedicated to
these propositions:
"1. To speed total victory and the
prompt return of our fighting men
by putting energy and competence in
Washington behind the magnificent
effort of our military command.
"2. To provide American leader-
ship in the world for an effective or-
ganization among all nations to pre-
vent future wars.
"3. To direct all government poli-
cies in the peacetime years ahead to
achieving jobs and opportunity for
every American."
To these ends, Dewey pledged:
"We shall restpre honesty and in-
tegrity to our national government.
"We shall put an end to one-man
"We shall unite our people in
teamwork and harmony behind a
president and a Congress that can
and will work together to realize the
limitless promise of America."

Nazi Rearguards
Enter Yugoslavia
Retreating Foe Battling With Tito's
Partisans; Two Cities Under Siege
By The Associated Press
ROME, NOV. 4-British troops and Greek patriots have driven the
Germans completely from Greece in a whirlwind campaign that was little
less speedy than the lightning Nazi conquest of 1941, Allied headquarters
announced today.
An RAF officer said it was believed the last German rearguards
crossed over into Yugoslavia Thursday night-38 days after British troops
landed on the rocky western coast of the Peloponnesus Sept. 26. It took
the Germans 27 days to overrun the little country in the spring of 1941.
An Allied announcement today said additional British troops had
landed near Salonika, which previously was freed by patriots and other
Tommies moving up to the northern Greek port by land, and these forces

Final Appeal
Of War Chestr
Drive Is Made 5
The War Chest campus campaign
for funds ends tomorrow afternoon.t
"Even though our solicitors havee
contacted almost every student ons
campus through his house, there are!
still a few who have not yet con-3
tributed to this drive," Paul John,
'46, in charge of the campaign in
men's houses, said yesterday.
For those who have waited untiln
the last moment to make their con-I
tributions, a special desk has beenF
set up in the lobby of the Union tos
accept donations for the War Chest
between 1 and 4 p.m. tomorrow. t
"I believe we have been handi-r
capped somewhat by the disorgani-5
zation of the campus during the firste
days of the new term, but our re-
turns so far have been very gratify-
ing," John declared. "We won't
know the final results until some
time Tuesday, but I'm sure they will
be high.'
For the last day of the campaign
John re-emphasized the many relief
societies and welfare organizations
that one contribution will benefit:
In the local drive, there are 36 agen-
cies, including the USO, which share
the donations.
"I have found the response to our'
campaign very encouraging," Peggy
Morgan, '45, women's co-ordinator,
asserted. "Most of the girls have
been very happy to have our solici-
tors contact them, since many wo-
men had no chance to contribute
to the War Chest before they left
home for the fall term."
Prof. Harold M. Dorr, director of
the campus drive, commented, "I,
believe that the students who have
organized this campaign so well
should be given special credit for
their work during the past week."
~Sinking of Yank
Vessel Revealed
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4.-(IP)-De-
tails of the sinking of an American
transport by an Axis submarine in
the north Atlantic with heavy loss
of life early in 1943 were revealed for
the first time today. ,
The vessel, the liner Henry R. Mal-
loy, which in peacetime flew the
Clyde-Mallory flag in the New York-
Galveston run, was in a convoy car-
rying Army, Navy and Marine Corps
personnel to Iceland when attacked
during a snow storm and heavy seas.,
Nearly 300 servicemen were miss-!
ing when survivors were rescued by
the Coast Guard cutters George M.
Bibb and Ingram. Thirty-eight mem-
bers of the ship's crew of 71, includ-
ing the master, also were lost.

"Being American-born is no handi-
cap for a singer when learning a
foreign language if the singer obtains
a thorough knowledge of the lang-
uage," Helen Traubel, red-haired and
colorful soprano, stated after the
first Choral Union concert last night
at Hill Auditorium.
Miss Traubel, garbed in a black
evening gown and wearing very lit-
tle make-up, commented that a sing-
er must understand the depth, mean-
ing, and feeling of the words and
language which she or he is singing.
This understanding of a foreign

language cannot be obtained by a
phonetic study .of the language.
"However, my greatest desire is
to sing my entire repertoire in Eng-
lish, not because I find it hard to
understand a foreign language, but
because I firmly believe that an audi-
ence can understand the meaning of
the music much better if the words
can also be understood," she said.
Most musicians and singers today
believe as I do, she stated, but our
greatest problem lies in the transla-
tion. It is very hard to find translat-
crs who will write the English words
in place of foreign words who can
make the song singable and reason-
ably free.
"They fail to understand," she
said, "that what we are seeking is
a reasonably free translation rather
than a literal one. As long as the
poetic content is there, we would be
satisfied. Someday I am sure we

Fleeing Serbia, Albania
Tonight the Germans, who may
never get back to the fatherland in
