per cent wage rate increase within

which yesterday rejected. a union ar-
bitration proposal, said no invita-
tion had been received from the la-
bor secretary. Until it had been re-
ceived, he Added, there would be no
management comment on the pro-
posed conferences in Washington.
"Industrial War"
Walter P. Reuther, UAW-CIO vice-
president, in a prepared statement
today asserted that "General Motors
has committed itself to industrial
war all along the industrial front."
"America's postwar problem," the
statement said, "is not production;
it is maintenance of purchasing pow-
er so that the American people can
buy back the abundance they can
"You will see in this strike," Reu-
ther asserted, "the greatest demon-
stration of labor's solidarity ever seen
in this country."

Welles Says
He Rearded
War Inevitable
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 24-Sumner
Welles, former Undersecretary of
State, said today that as early as
mid-September of 1941 he regarded
war with Japan as "probably inevit-
He told Congressional investigators
of the Japanese attack on Pearl Har-
bor that in his opinion only "complete
acquiescence" in Japan's policy of ag-
gression could have forstalled hos-
tilities. In fact, the Japanese pro-
posals of Nov. 20, 1941, amounted to
an "ultimatum," he said.
Questioned by Senator Ferguson
Under questioning by Senator Fer-
guson (R-Mich.), Welles said he did
not know, however, what information
and views were relayed by the State
Department to the Warand Navy De-
Welles named former Postmaster
General Frank Walker as one of the
"influential persons" with whom Jap-
anese Ambassadors Nomura and Ku-
rusu were dealing in the critical days
immediately before the war.
Commission Sees Kurusu Note
Earlier in the hearings, the com-
mittee had been given a copy of a
dispatch from Nomura and Kurusu
to Tokyo advising that they were
talking with "influential" individuals
behind their "frontal negotiations"
with Hull and President Roosevelt.
Ferguson was insistent about the
disclosure that President Roosevelt
and Prime Minister Churchill had
agreed they would warn Japan that
each nation would act if the Japan-
ese engaged in more aggression.

Parri Resigns
[From Italian
By The Associated Press
ROME, Nov. 24-Premier Ferruccio
Parri, confronted with a right-wing
revolt, resigned tonight as head of
Italy's six-party coalition govern-
The Committee of National Libera-
tion, after a one-hour session, ac-
cepted Parri's resignation.
The retiring premier addressed the
committee, which included represen-
tatives of the Liberal and Christian
Democrat parties, whose withdrawal
from the government coailwition pre-
cipitated the current cabinet crisis,
during the session, to which corres-
pondents were not admitted.
The premier indicated his resigna-
tion would result in rightist with-
drawals and charged that the Lib-
eral withdrawal was in reality a
maneuver to achieve a coup d'etat.
He said the Christian Democrats had
engaged in the same tactics.

Strategic City Falls
In Uncontested Drive
By The Associated Press
CIIUNGKING, Sunday, Nov. 25
-Chinese Nationalists troops have
wrested the Manchurian port of
Hulutao from the Chinese Com-
-mnoist, the Nationalist press re-
ported today.
CHUNKING, Nov. 24-(P)-Chinese
Nationalist troops reportedly seized
Chinsien's railway station today and
surrounded that city 120 miles from
Mukden in an uncontested drive 100
miles deep into Manchuria.
Although the Chinese Communists
had predicted the "first big battle for
Manchuria" would be fought at Chin-
sien-a strategic city girt by hills-
the Chunking World Daily News as-
serted the Nationalist Army threw
its lines about the city against only
"unorganized resistance."
Communist reports declared that
their Chinese forces were pouring
into the industrial city of Mukden.
They asserted 200,000 men including
the "people's malitia," were ready to
fight for Manchuria.

Pihos Sparks
Victory Drive
In Last Quarter
By The Associated Press
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Nov. 24-
Crafty Alvin (Bo) McMillin's once-
scorned "pore lil Hoosier boys" were
roaring football giants today, pow-
ering undefeated Indiana University's
first championship in Big Ten history
with a decisive 26 to 0 victory over
A delirious throng of 27,000 who
overflowed the small Indiana Sta-
dium saw the Hoosiers, denied a
championship since the school en-
tered the Big Ten in 1900, explode for
not only the Conference title, but
also a spot close behind Army and
Navy in the National picture.
With burly Pete Pihos, a rough
and tumble ex-paratrooper-bulling
his way to the first two of Indiana's
four touchdowns, the Hoosiers fin-
ished with a near-perfect record of
nine victories and a 7-7 conference
tie with Northwestern.
First Half Scoreless
The Boilermakers lived up to Old
Oaken Bucket tradition by battling
Indiana to a scoreless tie in the first
half. But relentless Hoosier power
unleashed by Pihos and George Tali-
aferro, great Negro halfback, and
Quarterback Ben Raimondi's superb
passing ripped Purdue's defenses to
shreds in the last two periods.
After Pihos rammed across from
the one-yard line to cap a 77-yard

Jennie Tourel
Offers Varied
Music Program
Selections by Stradella, Pergolesi,
Rossini, Debussy, Rachmaninoff,
Moussorgsky and Leonard Bernstein
will highlight the concert to be pre-
sented by Jennie Tourel, brilliant
mezzo-soprano of the Metropolitan
Opera Company, at 8:30 p.m. Tues-
day in Hill Auditorium.
Initial Appearance
The petite Russian-French singer,
will open her initial Ann Arbor per-
formance program with three Italian
numbers to be followed by the rondo
from Rossini's "La Cenerentola,"
Chabrier's "Romance de 'Etoile" and
"Toujours" by Faure. Included in the
group of Russian songs will be Rach-
maniff's "O Cease Thy Singing Maid-
en Fair," "Hopak" by Moussorgsky
and Gretchaninoff's "Lullaby." Two
Debussy compositions, an American
spiritual and Leonard Bernstein's "I
Hate Music" will complete the sing-
er's program.
European Star
A star of the Opera Comique in
Paris before the outbreak of the war,
Miss Tourel succeeded in leaving the
capital city and came to the United
States by way of Lisbon. After her
Carnegie Hall debut with Toscanini
and the New York Philharmonic in
October, 1942, the charming mezzo-
soprano skyrocketed to a top place
among concert and radio attractions
of the day.

Expand City
T raffic Load
Football was more than a game for
city, county, and state police yester-
day, when 80,000 odd fans poured
into Michigan Stadium from Colum-
bus, Chicago and Detroit.
The sheriff's office put the esti-
mated automobile traffic at "a con-
servative 10,000" which required
the complete city police force as
well as 35 state officers and 10
county deputies, a total of 78.
One woman died of a heart attack,
but there were only two recorded ac-
cidents, neither of which was fatal.
Chief result of the thousands of
emptied bottles which littered the
stadium after the game was a host
of inebriates, disorderly or lost or
both, which descended on police
and sheriff's headquarters steadily
late yesterday. Eight arrests were
reported, and countless others were
turned over to worried friends and

touchdown that provided the win-
ning margin.
Schnittker Kicks Goal
Up until the drive that culminated
in Fonde's tally, the only successful
scoring effort of the contest was a
20-yard field goal by Max Schnittker,
Ohio State reserve tackle, early in
the third period.
Aside from those two thrusts, neith-
er eleven was able to engineer any-
thing resembling a scoring threat as
the two lines stole the show in a great
display of defensive football.
The Bucks provided the only other
scares for the highly partisan Wol-
verine crowd with a flurry of passes
near the end of the first half, but
some great defensive work by Bob
Nussbaumer turned them aside.
Hoosiers Take Title
Meanwhile, Indiana's surprising
young ball club won a Big Ten title
for itself, exploding for 19 points in
the fourth quarter to down Purdue,
26-0. That victory gave the unbeaten
Hoosiers the championship and
forced Michigan to accept runner-up
honors for the second successive year.
All Conference teams ended their sea-
sons yesterday.
But loss of the title did not detract
from the valiant efforts of the fresh-
man-studded Wolverine eleven as it
battled against superior weight on a
muddy field and finally saw its efforts
rewarded. The uphill win provided
ample revenge for last year's 18-14
defeat by the Bucks that cost Coach
Fritz Crisler's 1944 squad a cham-
Offense was at a minimum as the
two lines stole the show. For Ohio,
it was big Russ Thomas, 223-pound
tackle, and guard Warren Amling
who proved most adept at upsetting
the Wolverine offensive game. For
Michigan, it was the whole of the
two alternating lines that rose to the
