Three Tally Marks
By DES HOWARTH
Michigan's young puck squad set
three new scoring records last night
as it swamped Sarnia A. C., 16-2 at
the Coliseum in a game that more
closely resembeled a three ring cir-
cus thana hockey contest.
Wally Grant and Neil Celley both
turned the hat trick for the Wolver-
ines with Grant scoring four goals
while his team-mate marked up three
tallies and two assists as this pair
led the Michigan attack. The 16 goals
racked up is a new high for one game,
exceeding the 12 goals scored bythe
Wolverines in a game in the 1935-36
Nine Tallies in Firset tPeriod
Practically every member of the
team had a hand in the scoring.
Coach Vic Heyliger's aggregation
nine times in the first period, scoring
five goals in four minutes, 16 seconds
to establish two more marks for the
The game was a crowd pleaser de-
spite the lop-sided score, and there
was never adull moment. Nine penal-
ties were handed out as the Sarnia
club kept even with the Wolverines in
the rough-and-tumble aspect of the
Amusing highlight of the game oc-
curred late in the final period when
Michmigan goalie Jack MacInnes be-
came bored with the inactivity a-
round his own net and attempted to
make a solo dash up the ice, much to
the delight of the spectators.
Sarnia scored first on a surprise
goal after the Wolverines had been
pressing the attack around the Can-
adians net. Ollie Haddon countered
for the visitors. But from here on the
game was strictly no contest as the
Michigan puckmen showered goals
past goalie Jack Rutter.
Celley Evens Score
Celley evened the count in less than
a minute after taking a pass from
Walley Gacek. Then Celley set up a
beautiful play, going behind the Sar-
nia net and passing to Grant who
lifted his flrstt goal high into the net.
Celley scored again froml Gacek, and
Dick Starrak got his first score of
the year with Bob Marshall and Al
Gord MacMillan quickly added a
fifth goal. Karl Sulentich, playing
his second game of the year for the
Wolverines, countered the first of his
two goals, scoring from a pile-up.
Grant ran the count to 7-2 on the
best play of the game as he took the
puck behind his own blue line and
skated the length of the ice to score.
He stick-handled his way past two
defensemen and then beat Goalie
Rutter by faking him out of position.
Renfrew and MacMillan banged in
two more goals to conclude the scor-
ing for the period.
Two More Added
In the second frame Renfrew and
Sulentich added two more for Mich-

Closing Foul Shot
Gains 49-48 Win
By HANK KEISER
Seven thousand cheering fans, the
largest crowd in five years, watched
the University of Michigan's basket-
ball squad fight its way to a story-
book one-point victory over a power-
ful Illinois quintet, last night in Yost
Field House, as the Wolverines
turned a last minute foul shot into
the margin of their 49-48 win.
With the game tied up, 48-48, and
but 30 seconds of play remaining,
Glen Selbo, Michigan's center, had
a pushing penalty called in his favor
and was awarded two free throws.
While the crowd literally held its
breath Selbo sunk the first one and
then elected to take the ball out at
half court. The game ended, seconds
later, with the ball still in Michigan's
Neither team was more than six
points ahead throughout the entire
see-saw contest. The lead changed
hands 10 times while the squads bat-
tled to a tie on nine successive occa-
sions. After 19 minutes of the first
half had run out the Illini led by one
point, 24-23. But, when the whistle
blew at the end of the first frame the
tilt was knotted up, 24-24.

May End Strife
Meeting of Negotiators
Scheduled for Monday
By The Associated Press
CHUNGKING, Jan. 5-The Gov-
ernment and the Communists an-
nounced today an agreement on
methods of ending China's civil strife
and instructed their top negotiations
to meet not later than Monday to
work out the details.
It was learned reliably that Gen.
Chiang Chen, the Government nego-
tiator, and Chou En-Lai, the Com-
munist representative, would seek the
help of Gen. George C. Marshall, spe-
cial U. S. Envoy to China.
K. C. Wu, minister of information,
said a cease fire order, stilling the
sporadic shooting that has punctu-
ated the civil turmoil since Japan's
surrender, would be set when the ne-
It still was not known here whether
the government had agreed to lift the
blockade of Communist areas, which
the Reds demanded as one condition
before going farther with peace talks.
The long-awaited agreement was
widely acclaimed in Chungking as as-
suring at least a temporary peace,
and there were expressions of relief
on all sides in this long-anxious capi-
It was generally conceded that the
existence of an armistice when the
Chinese unity conference opens Jan-
uary 10 would greatly enhance the
prospects of its success, but that
there was the danger of a resumption
of hostilities should that all-party
Meanwhile, a semi-official dispatch
reported that government troops had
begun landing by air in Changchun,
the capital of Manchuria, the vast
and rich territory which both sides
have been trying to control.
Asked Withdrawal Delay
The government, needing the terri-
tory's natural resources and indus-
tries for the reconstruction of China,
has asked Russian occupation forces
to delay their withdrawal until Feb.
1 so that Chinese troops can take
over stratigic areas.
The announcement that the gov-
ernment and the Communists' had
agreed at last on procedure for a
cessation of hostilities was made in
the form of a joint statement.
While this first big step toward
peace was taken, such crucial ques-
tions as the government advance into
Jehol province-which the Commun-
ists declare must be halted as a pre-
liminary to unity talks-apparently
still were unsolved.

trol of the football squad, including
the varsity, junior varsity, and
freshman teams. He also has the
authority to pick his own assis-
tants, and stated that he will have
at least three coaches under him.
In a farewell message to Michigan
friends, Munn said, "To 'Fritz' Cris-
ler and the Michigan men who played
for us during eight grand years, I
should like to express my sincere ap-
preciation. It was a privilege to have
been associated with the University,"
he continued, "and I will always have
a warm spot in my heart for Michi-
gan and its fine people."
Munn declined to comment on the
rumor that he will take Earl Mar-
tineau, Wolverine backfield coach,
to Syracuse with him. No salary fig-
ure was mentioned, although it has
been rumored that Munn will receive
$8,000 per year.
Athletic Director H. O. (Fritz)
Crisler, who brought the new Syra-
cuse coach to Michigan with him in
1938, stated, "Munn will be a very
good investment." Crisler said that
he had only learned of Munn's deci-
sion at 2 p.m. yesterday.
Commenting on the choice of a
new line coach, Crisler pointed
out that "good line coaches are
hard to find." He added, "There
will definitely not be a selection
before the football coaches' meet-
ing at St. Louis is over Jan. 17."
"My first inclination," Crisler said,
"is to look back over the outstanding
linemen that have played for Michi-
gan during the past eight years. But
I have not sat down and tried to fig-
ure the thing out in black and white."
Prof. Ralph Aigler, chairman of
the Board in Control of Athletics,
expressed regrets that Munn was
leaving Michigan. He stated yester-
day, "I'm terribly sorry personally
and on behalf of the University that
we are losing him. If he feels that
he can better himself in his new job,
however, I am very happy for him."
Members of this year's line also
wished Munn success at Syracuse.
Bob Callahan, varsity tackle, said,
"Our loss is Syracuse's gain, but it
was a pleasure playing under him.
If he wants to be a head coach, he did
the wise thing."
Stu Wilkins, a varsity guard this
season, stated, "I think he's one of
the best coaches I've ever played
under, and I'm sorry to see him go."
Other members of the team con-
curred with Callahan and Wilkins.
The rumors surrounding Munn
and his possible acceptance of a
Syracuse offer had been circulated
since the middle oflast month,

Menotti, who wrote "Amelia Goes

combined in the opera a witty treat-

scenes are concise and effective.

Many Japanese, who were aware of
the barbarous actions of their own
