Homecoming Crowd
Sees Varsity Win Again
Lund Strikes Initial ┬░Sigma Chi Takes
Blow; Weisenburger Honors for Display;
Scores in Later Drive Theta Women Win.


Associate Sports Editor
Striking for touchdowns in the
first and last quarters, Michigan kept
alive its Big Ten championship
hopes, as they blasted Illinois, 14-0,
in one of the hardest and cleanest
games of the year before a gathering
of 42,000 wildly cheering fans.
The Wolverines registered their
first score of the game, four minutes
after the opening kickoff. Ralph
Chubb, on the initial play of the tilt,
returned the pigskin to the 46 yard
stripe. Eugene Derricotte, in three
running plays, moved the ball to the
15 yard line. Two more plays picked
up two yards and then Don Lund
exploded over right guard for a first
down on the four yard line. Lund,
on the next play, went over standing
up and Joe Ponsetto added the extra
point. This touchdown drive 54 yards
in seven plays.
Michigan collected its second score
in the last quarter when Don Green-
wood, Illini back,,fumbled Jack Wei-
senburger's punt and Harold Watts,
Wolverine center, recovered on the
Orange and Blue 32 yard line.
Michigan Scores Again
Lund, in five thrusts at Eliott
forward wall, reached the 15. Wei-
senburger, on an off-tackle smash,
carried the ball to the three and twc
plays later Weiseinburger ski'ted left
end for the touchdown, with Pon-
setto again converting. This drive
netted 32 yards in nihe plays and
came with six minutes of 'playing
time still remaining.
Illinois made its most determined
threat late in the first quarter, when
they marched 70 yards to the Michi-
gan one foot line. This drive was
temporarily interrupted when Michi-
gan took possession on their own 33
yard line. However, Chubb's lateral
was recovered by Lou Agase on the
next play, and the Illini threatened
once more.
Claude "Buddy" Young, Illinois'
amazing speedster, spearheaded this
70 yird splurge by picking up 60
yards in ten tries. After Eddie Bray,
another of Illini's scatbacks,Bhad
driven to the one foot line, Bill
Butkovich, on the first play of the
second quarter, fumbled with Watts

Chinese Admit
Into Kwe ilin
CHUNGKING, Nov. 11.-(A)-Es-
timating that 350,000 Japanese had
been flung into the sprawlin battle
for Kwangsi province, the Chinese
high command admitted tonight that
the enemy hal broken into Kweilin
and also was pushing a menacing
drive in the south toward important
Yungning (Nanning).
Resistance continued inside Kwei-
lin, Kwangsi capital and defense
pivot for southeast China, which
was penetrated Thursday night, the
high command said.
Liuchow, site of the last advance
American air base in southeast
China, still isrin Chinese hands, the
communique said. A U.S. 14th Air
Force communique detailed wide-
spread attacks in Hunan and
Kwangsi provinces.
(The Japanese high command

both Kweilin and Liuchow, which

iously had reported taken. An im-

Twenty graves, a tepee, two agi-
tated Indians and a complacent but
virile Wolverine gave the Sigma Chi
fraternity first place honors in the
men's division of the homecoming
display judging yesterday.
Nineteen of the graves-leave-
covered mounds with markers nam-
ing the years-represented the nine-
teen times Michigan has thwarted Il-
linois since the team rivalry began
in 1898. An open grave, marked
with 1944 and a few spruce branches,
lay ready to acknowledge the Illi-
ni's 20th defeat at the hands of the
Maize and Blue, 14-0.
Champaign--That Way
One Indian Illini, after being heft-
ily kicked by the Wolverine, was hur-
tling in the general direction of an
arrow which announced, "Cham-
paign, 355 miles." His destination was
the tepee headquarters of the Illinois
tribe. In front of the tribe's wigwam
was a smouldering fire, complete with
war-dancing redskin who grunted,
"Ugh! Next year!"
"Criser, We're Behind You!"
shouted the sisters of Kappa Alpha
Theta. Their slogan was matched by
a bevy of coeds earnestly pushing a
(real) Chrysler automobile. The
novelty of the pun was enough to
make them winners in the women's
division, even though their feminine
competition was strong.
'Seventh Cross'
Seven and a half crosses decorated
the yard of the Alpha Delta Pi sor-
ority. Six of the crosses were filled
with effigies representing Michigan's
grid victims this season. The soror-
ity's slogan, "We Want Our Seventh
Cross Filled," (from the book of
similar title) was borne out in the
seventh cross, reserved for Illinois.
Upon each cross was a song title, rel-
ative to each game. On the Illinois
cross was "It Could Happen to You."
One very small cross pictured Indi-
ana, with the notation, "Just One
of Those Things."

Quota Topped
In Campus War
Chest Drive
Fund Totals $23,509
As Campaign Ends;
Campus Gives $1,362
Over the top by more than $500
with returns still coming in were the
results of the recent campus War
Chest drive, Prof. Harold M. Dorr,
director of the University campaign,
announced yesterday.
Totals reported thus far in the two-
sectioned drive from October 5-14
and October 28-November 4 show
that $23,509.26 was raised for the
Fund. Of this amount $1,361.86
came directly from the students.
"Because the disruption caused by
the break in semesters made this a
very difficult time to organize the
campaign, and because many stu-
dents had contributed to the War
Chest in their own home towns, the
amount that they turned in for the
Ann Arbor drive is highly gratifying,"
Prof. Dorr asserted.
Martha Cook Highest
Martha Cook Dormitory was high-
est both in amount and percentage
of individual returns, reporting
$141.47. Delta Delta Delta led the
sororities with $90.50. There were
student solicitors in each organized
residence, which for the women in-
cluded sororities ($422.93), converted
fraternities ($205.15), league houses
($79.96) and dormitories ($478.62).
The small number of organized men's
residences reported $101.01.
'Efficient Organization
"I was very well pleased with the
efficient manner in which the stu-
dents organized on so short a no-
tice," Prof. Dorr, who has been con-
nected with Community Chest activi-
ties for five years, added. "Credit
for the faculty co-operation is divid-
ed among the great many people
who worked faithfully under adverse
circumstances," he said.
"I wish to thank all those who so
generously supported the campaign,
and especially Profs. Kenneth Hance
and James Gault, who co-ordinated
the drive in the east and west divi-
sions of the campus, and Peggy Mor-
gan, '45, who led the student cam-
paign," he continued.

The wiping out of four troop-laden

Francis Sayre
To Be First
Guest Speaker
Philippine Diplomat
To Begin Lecture Series
The Hon. Francis Bowes Sayre will
be the first guest speaker in the
1944-45 University Oratorical Asso-
ciation series the first lecture of
which will be held Thursday at 8:30
p. m. in Hill Auditorium.
Sayre, who was appointed High
Commissioner tothe Philippines in
1939, has consistently befriended the
idea of Philippine independence.
Even before Sayre's appointment, he
had shown considerable interest in
planning new economic ties between
the United States and the Philip-
pines, and in 1938, as Chairman of
the Joint Preparatory Committee on
Philippine Affairs, he turned in the
most complete report ever made on
the Islands. With this background
he will develop the pertinent topic
"Our Relations with the Philippines."
A native of Pennsylvania, Sayre re-
ceived a B. A. degree from Williams
in 1909, and graduated from Har-
vard Law School in 1912. Shortly
after this he married the daughter
of President Woodrow Wilson, and
as a coincidence, it haS been said
that he resembles Wilson in appear-
ance and has the same Wilson en-
Before becoming Assistant Secre-
tary of State in 1933, Sayre held vari-
ous positions including a professor-
ship in law at Harvard, director of
its Institute of Criminal Law, and
immediately preceeding his appoint-
ment to the State Department, he
was . Massachusetts State Commis-
sioner of Correction.
Working directly under Cordel:
Hull, Sayre was right-hand man ir

MacArthur declared that only
remnants of the 8,000 Japanese
fightingmen in the second ill-fated
convoy reached shore.
Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, reporting
on the same operation, listed four
transports, two destroyers and a
destroyer escort sunk, two destroyers
probably sunk and one damaged.
He added 13 Japanese planes shot
down and five probably destroyed by
carrier pilots to the 19 reported shot
down by Army fliers. Two Nippon
planes were blasted out of the air
near Third Fleet carriers.
The carrier plane strike against
the convoy, said by Nimitz to have
been in the Camotes Sea immedi-
ately west of Leyte, disclosed that
Third Fleet carriers have returned to
direct support of Yank doughboys
fighting on Leyte.
Fresh Jap Troops
The Japanese, their original Leyte
garrison of some 35,000 men already
liquidated, have lardied fresh troops -
in excess of that number since Oct.
Yank Army airmen shot down 19
Japanese planes in bombing sweeps
over Visayan Islands west of Leyte
and, in the Ormoc sector.
B-29's in Operation
American aerial bombs, dropped
by Superfortresses, blasted vital mil-
itary targets Saturday inside .the
Japanese homeland and in two major
Nippon-occupied cities of China.
A large task force of B-20's, em-
ploying secret instruments to locate
targets through clouds, were reported
by the 20th U.S. Air Force Command
to have hit the Omura aircraft fac-
tory at Omura, on Japan's home
island of Kyushu. They also raided
dock and loading facilities at Nan-
king and military storage and trans-
shipping installations at Shanghai.

Americans Keep
Armistice Day
-(-P)--Two hundred American sol-
diers participated in ceremonies to-
day in the Forest of Compiegne,
where the Armistice which ended the
first World War was signed-and
1 where Hitler, in June, 1940, imposed
his armistice terms on France.
The Germans carried off the fa-
mous railway car in which the two
events took place in 1940. They ex-
hibited it at a fair at Leipzig and in
other German cities. Later it was
reported destroyed in an Allied
bombing of Berlin.
The monument with the inscrip-
tion marking the end of "the crimi-
nal pride of the German empire"
was destroyed by the Nazis, but they
left the statue of Marshal Foch

Slash Deeper
Soward Metz
IN FRANCE, Nov. 11.-UP)-Ameri-
can tanks and infantry slashed five
miles deeper into the defenses of
Metz today, fighting up to the Nied'
River nine miles east and slightly
south of the fortress and breaking
across the stream at one point.
While German resistance stiffened,
gains of five and seven miles were
racked up on this Armistice Day-the
fourth day of a drive which might
well develop into the last great push
on the western front.
Lt.-Gen. George S. Patton Jr., cel-
ebrating his birthday, had split the
German defenders south of the fort-
ringed city and had tanks maraud-
ing 18 miles from the Saar border
near Saarbrucken, where they had
cut one of Metz's rail lines by which
it is supplied from the east.
(Although there was no armistice
on any section of the 450-mile front,
the only other major activity report-
ed was on the U.S. First Army sector,
where the doughboys still were slug-
ging it out with the Germans south-
east of Aachen in Hurtgen forest.

man said Patton "has now engaged
about two thirds of his tank forces
