Michigan Clinches First Division Berth
As Suiprunowiez Sets Pace with 25 Points
Special To The aily
COLUMBUS, March 3-Michigan's seven point half time lead,
plus the 22 point second period performance of Mack Suprunowicz, was
enough to enable the Wolverines to pull out a 66-62 season finale from
the Ohio State quintet here tonight, and give the Maize and Blue un-
disputed possession of fifth place in the final Big Ten standings.
Michigan closed its season with six wins and six defeats while Ohio
State, the defending Big Nine cage champion, wound up with five
victories and seven losses.
The contest witnessed by 5,235 was a real Wolverine-Buckeye
thriller, particularly in the last 10
Mack Suprunowicz walked off
with individual scring honors,

these came in the exciting second

Michigan Leads At Half
Michigan was in front at half
time, 27-20, after the Bucks
jumped into an early lead. The
Wolverines tied the score at 10-10
and went on from there to com-
plete their first half margin.
The score was tied at 62-62 with
only 16 seconds of play left when
Bill Roberts, Michigan center,
sank a field goal. Suprunowicz,
forward, then intercepted Ohio
State's attempted throw-in from
out,of bounds and dropped in an-
other field goal, making the score

LONDON, March 3 - Prime
Minister Stalin, after six years as
commander of the vast Russian
military organization resigned his
post as minister of the armed
forces today because of the "ex-
cessive pressure of his main work"
and handed the job to politically
astute Marshal Nikolai Aexan-

dio said tonight.

Norman Granz' "Jazz at the
Philharmonic" will bring every
type of jazz, blues, boogie woogie
and swing, played by ten of the
nation's top artists, to campus at
8 p.m. tonight in Hill Auditorium.
AuditQrium doors will be open
at 7 p.m. Women will have late
permission until one-half hour
after the concert is over.
"Jazz at the Philharmonic"
grew out of jam sessions in Los
Angeles night clubs. Even then
Granz worked with a firm anti-
discrimination policy under which
he refused to play at any clubs
which restricted admittance or
had segregated seating plans. At
present, his contracts stipulate
that he will not play in concert
halls which practice "segregation
of white people from Negroes."
His first major concert was a
benefit which helped free a group
of Mexican youths. Immediately
after that, the group played 18
concerts at the Philharmonic

Office Hit by
By Martial Law
By The Associated Press
JERUSALEM, March 3 -Five
hand grenades were hurled into a
British military office at Haifa
tonight, shortly after the Jewish
underground organization Irgun
Zvai Leumi proclaimed that "open
warfare exists in Palestine."
A British announcement said
there were no casualties in the
Irgun claimed that it had suc-
cessfully attacked British Army
camps at Petah Tiqva and Hadero,
in retaliation against the imposi-
tion of martial law on more than
a third of Palestine's 600,000 Jews.
There was no confirmation by
the British of these claims.
Meanwhile the Jewish Agency,
warning of the possibility of "ab-
solute anarchy and chaos," de-
manded that Britain define terms
of martial law imposed yesterday.
With approximately 250,000
Jews isolated from the rest of the
world, Jewish and British sources
agreed that indefinite continua-
tion of the military rule would re-
sult in financial ruin for the areas
The Jewish Agency, indignant
over the slaying of two Jews by
British authorities within the last
24 hours, asked whether such kill-
ings were considered "right" un-
der terms of martial law.
One of those killed was a four-
year-old girl, Ketti Shalom, who
was shot last night while standing
with her mother on the balcony of
a house in the martial law area of
Jerusalem. The mother also was
wounded. British officials said the
girl's parents apparently had
quarreled, and that soldiers opened
fire when the father tried to leave
Isaac Poli, 30-year-old Jewish
war veteran, was killed in Tel Aviv
today when he failed to heed an
order to halt. The two deaths
boosted the fatality total from vio-
lence in the last three days to 22.

Talk on Trials
At Niernberg Jail
Dr. Gustave M. Gilbert, psy-
chologist who made daily studies
of the top Nazi war criminals dur-
ing the Nuernberg Trials, will
lecture on his experiences as "A
Psychologist in the Nuernberg
Jail" at 4:15 p.m. today in the
Rackham Lecture Hall.
In the course of his year of
clinical work with the former Ger-
man leaders, Dr. Gilbert was oc-
casionally asked to give testimony
before the Court. The most spec-
tacular instance of this was his
testimony on the mental state of
Rudolf Hess, who had feigned loss
of memory during the early stages
of the trial.
Before his special assignment
to Nuernberg Dr. Gilbert spent
four years with the Army as clin-
ical psychologist and personnel
consultant. He has had clinical
experience at Columbia University
and Hunter College and has also
taught psychology at those insti-
