Hockey Team Loses, 9-3,
To University of Toronto;
Quintet To Meet Ohio State

Sextet To Seek
Revenge Today
For First Loss
TORONTO, Jan. 25 - Michigan's
hockey winning streak was halted at
11 games tonight at the Varsity
Arena as the University of Toronto
put on a great offensive display to
beat the Wolverines, 9-3.
Suffering its first defeat of the sea-
son, while the Toronto Blues chalked
up their seventh consecutivetriumph,
the Maize and Blue sextet will be out
to even the score tomorrow afternoon
when they encounter the Canadian
club in the second tilt of the series.
In all pre-game reports, Toronto
was called a "great team," and it cer-
tainly lived up to expectations. Not
only did the Blues' pucksters out-.
shoot Michigan, but they also played
a top defensive game, allowing Coach
Vic Heyliger's charges only three
Taking scoring honors tonight was
Bill Halder, who previously averaged.
four goals per game. The Toronto
Star bagged three against the Maize
and Blue, while the top man for the
Wolverines was Wally Gacek with
two markers. Al Renfrew netted the
Maize and Blue's third tally.
In the first few minutes of the
game, both sextets passed the puck
back and forth and then Toronto's
scoring spree was on when Halder
crashed the Wolverines' nets with a
hard, fast shot on a pass from Will
Kosick and Gordie Bal.
Ball and Halder again collaborated
to mark up the second tally of the
contest. Four minutes later the Can-.
adian's star forward again placed one
past Michigan's goalie to bring the
initial stanza to an end with Toronto
out front, 3-0.
Wally Gacek opened the scoring
for the Wolverines on a pass from
Walt Grant in the early seconds of
the second period. It was a hard shot
that scooted past goalie Dick Ball at
the corner of the net. Bill Lawler

Returns to AFL
CIO Creator Has Seat
On Executive Council
MIAMI, Fla., Jan. 25-(P)-John L.
Lewis returned today to the American
Federation of Labor which he split
asunder a decade ago.
The big man who created the CIO,
and then left it in a huff over the
1940 Roosevelt election, which he bit-
terly opposed, brought his 500,000
United Mine Workers back to the
parent federation and was quickly
elevated to a seat on the policy-mak-
ing executive council.
He would not have come back
without that place among the 15 all-
powerful union heads on the council.
Previously he turned a cold shoulder
on re-affiliation without an assured
council seat.
AFL President William Green,
mindful of the stories that Lewis' re-
turn to the federation boded an end
to his reign of more than two decades,
emphasized he would remain as

Travel Films
Two documentary films will be
shown by the Art Cinema League
at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow in the Lydia'
Mendelssohn Theatre.
"Night Mail," one of the many
films produced in Great Britain for
the purpose of dramatizing the pub-
lic services performed by the govern-
ment, is the story of the nightly
journey of the Postal Special from
London to Glasgow. In addition to
showing the role which government
plays in maintaining a complex sys-
tem of communication in the modern
world, the picture also furnishes doc-
umentation of British regional land-
scape and local speech.
"Baboona" was produced in 1935
by Osa and the late Martin Johnson,
describing their aerial safaari over
Central America. As "pioneers of the
unknown," this was their first trip
made by airplane, during which they
took unusual pictures of native
tribes, various jungle animals, and a
"village" of baboons.
Tickets go on sale today at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre. All seats
are reserved.

Report on Lea
Am endment
Commenting on the House action
in reporting the Lea amendment to
the Federal Communications Act pre-
venting control of broadcasting by
coercive practices, Dr. Joseph Maddy
declared, "It indicates that Congress-
men are beginning to respond to the
public wrath at the unbridled des-
potism of Petrillo."
Ousted a week ago from the Am-
erican Federation of Musicians after
a 37-year membership, Dr. Maddy,
professor of radio education, suggest-
ed that letters should be sent to Con-
gressmen, expressing appreciation of
this move, and urging the passage of
the bill, H. R. 4737. He was tried by
the AFM national executive board
at a private hearing in Chicago on
the charge that he taught music at
The bill, directly aimed at curtail-
ing the dictatorial tactics of AFM
President James C. Petrillo, was re-
ported out of committee for immed-
iate consideration by the House by a
14-5 vote.
Dr. Maddy will address the annual
conference of the Illinois Music Ed-
ucators Association Feb. 3 at North-
western University on the effect of
Petrillo's attempt to control music
education in America.
