In Third Period

Ohio State's vauntedfquintet went
down to stunning defeat before a
fighting Wolverine cage crew last
night to the tune of 62-46 on the
floor of Yost Field House.
The Buckeyes were never in the
lead and managed to tie the score
only once in the game on an initial
exchange of free throws in the open-
ing minutes of the contest.
Neither team lacked scoring oppor-
tunities in th'e first minutes of play.
Buckeyes Ray Snyder and Jack Un-
derman failed to make good on shots
from the pivot. Michigan Capt. Dave
Strack started the Wolverines on
their way with a free throw. A mo-
Michigan's all-freshman 400-
yard relay squad broke the Nation-
al Collegiate freshman record yes-

Building as the swimmers tramp-
led Purdue's natators 49-32, taking

count on another gift shot. From
then on Michigan was never headed.
In quick succession Glen Selbo, Bob
Harrison, and Strack scored to run
the count to 7-1. 1
Favored OSU threatened only once
in the. game as Bennie Oosterbaan's
charges outfought and outshot their
rivals. The Wolverines ran up a six,

Special to The Daily
TORONTO, Jan. 26-Unleashing a
five-goal assault in the final period,
the University of Toronto hockey
team came from behind to hand
Michigan's sextet its second straight
defeat, 7-5, today at the Varsity
Until the Blue's whirlwind finale,
Cocha Vic Heyliger's pucksters had
things all their own way. They piled
up a four-goal advantage during the
first two periods and completely
smothered the Toronto attack with
a. great defensive exhibition. Jack
MacInnes was outstanding in the
Maize and Blue net.
Score Five Goals
Then the roof caved in. Led by
Wally Halder and Bill Kosick, the
Blues poured five goals through Mac-
Innes and the tiring Wolverine de-
fense while checking Heyliger's men
with a lone marker. For the second
time in as many nights, Haider again
sparked the Toronto attack with
three goals, two of them unassisted.
Wall Grant spearheaded the Mich-
igan scoring with a pair of tallies
while Al Renfrew chipped in with
three assists. Gordie MacMillan and
Captain Connie Hill each contributed
a goal and an assist to the Wolverine
total and Bill Jacobson accounted for
the other tally.
Jacobson Stars
Jacobson started things off for the
Wolverines in the first stanza, scoring
on a pass play from Renfrew at 3:33.
It was 10 minutes before the Maize
and Blue could add a second marker,
Hill then taking another of Renfrew's
>asses and rifling the puck past the
Toronto goalie from just inside the
home team's blue line.
That was all Michigan could do in
the initial period but Grant kept up
the hot pace for Heyliger's crew after
the intermission by firing a pair of

Use Taxes as
Guard Against
Inflation - Ruml
CLEVELAND, Jan. 26-(P)-Fed-
eral taxation should block inflation
by maintaining the purchasing power
of the dollar, Beardsley Ruml, au-
thor of the Ruml "Pay-As-You-Go"
income tax plan, today told a joint
conference of the American Economic
and American Finance associations.
"Taxes should be high enough to
protect the stability of our currency,
and no higher-or, putting it another
way, as low as they possibly can be
without putting the value of ,our
money in danger of inflation," he de-
The economist appealed for elimi-
nationof taxes on consumption "ex-
cept when these are'imposed for reg-
ulatory purposes," and abolition of
corporation income taxes.
Ruml urged adoption of a "simple
and understandable" tax system ac-
companied by regulatory measures
"so that the corporate form of doing
business will not be used as a device
to avoid payment of individual in-
come taxes or as a means of building
up unneeded and unused corporate
surpluses, or to secure tax advan-
tages over unincorporated busi-
Dr. Alfred G. Buehler of the Uni-

Raise Granted
Auto Workers
CIO.Demands GM
Officials Go Higher
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, Jan. 26 - The CIO
United Automobile Workers Union
settled its wage disputes today with
the Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler
Corp. at approximately half the
originally demanded 30 per cent in-
Close on the heels of an agree-
ment between Ford and the UAW-
CIO providing for an 18 cents an
hour (15.1 per cent) increase,
Chrysler and the union announced
their dispute had been settled on
the basis of an 18 cents an hour
(16.2 per cent) increase.
Approximately 100,000 Ford work-
ers participate in the increase which
brings their average wage to $L37
an hour; 48,000 production and
hourly-rated employes share in the
rise in Chrysler wages, which will
average $1.32 1/2an hour.
The increases add approximately
$39,000,000 annually to the Ford pay-
roll and $18,000,000 a year to Chrys-
ler wages.
The increases granted by Ford
and Chrysler are not expected to
have any effect on new auto prices
recently set by the Office of Price
A Ford spokesman said no requests
for upward adjustment of auto prices
would be sought, while Chrysler of-
ficials declined formal comment.
The new wage scale leaves Ford's
average hourly wage 4/2 cents an
hour higher than Chrysler, while un-
der the old pay levels Ford paid five
cents an hour more.
Announcement of the settlements
brought no immediate comment from
General Motors officials, whose 175,-
000 production workers have been on
strike since Nov. 21.
In Washington, however, R. J.
Thomas and Walter P. Reuther,
UAW-CIO president and vice-pres-
ident, respectively, announced the
union would expect more from GM
than was obtained in the Ford set-
tlement. "GM will have to go
higher," said Thomas, "because its
present rates are lower than
The General Motors average now is
Said Reuther: "We will not settle
with GM for less than 191/2 cents."
Both the Ford and Chrysler agree-
ments must be submitted to the work-
ers for ratification. Effective date of
the Ford agreement was left to fur-
ther discussions. The Chrysler con'-
tract, effective tday, will run until
Feb. 15, 1947.

Rocket Travel to Moon Out

Allan D. Maxwell, longtime member
of the University Observatory staff,
yesterday deprecated the possibility
of using radar to the moon for any-
thing more exciting than accurately
measuring astronomical distances.
Acknowledging that the recent
radar contact with the moon is un-

"Man already has as accurate a
picture of the moon, down to its very
detail, as could be desired, these maps
having been drawn through telescopic

The successful transmission of
such radar waves to the other plan-
ets encounters tremendous obstacles,
Prof. Maxwell said. The nearest
planet to the Earth is Venus, 108
times as far from us as the moon. It
would require an electrical impulse
