Loss of Mukden
War, revolution, striking work-

be signs that civil unrest is more
irresistibly on the march than at
any time since World War II, As-
sociated Press reports reveal.
NANKING-Mukden has col-
lapsed into Chinese Communist
hands in the most stunning gov-
ernment loss of the three-year
civil war, reliable sources in this
fearful capital reported last night.
Many high Chinese and for-
eign sources declared the civil
war had been decided with the
fall of the great Manchurian
city. Quick retirement from the
remaining small holdings in
southernmost Manchuria was
Bitter fighting may continue in
China proper for months or even
years, the sources said, but Gen-
eralissimo Chiang Kai-Shek's ef-
fort to defeat the Communists on
a nationwide scale has died. The
latest setback brought speculation
on the possibility of replacing
China's long-time leader.
ATHENS, Greece's 87-year-old
premier, Themistokles Sophoulis
said his government would re-
sign within two or three days.
The Premier's statement came
as a result of a quarrel between
himself and the deputy leader
of his Liberal Party, Sopho-
cles Venizelos, over a proposed
re-shuffle of the cabinet. Veni-
zelos is the son of the late
Fleutherios Venizelos, founder
of the Liberal party and one of
Greece's greatest statesmen.
Venizelos had given notice that
he would ask parliament for a
new government picked for ability
rather than party affiliations or
political strength.
The country has been under
martial law for 48 hours.

In one of the most bitterly contested games seen in Ann Arbor in
over a year, Michigan's undefeated Wolverines carried their victory
string past the 20 mark yesterday as they subdued a desperately bat-
Uling Illinois eleven, 28-20.
Before a screaming Homecoming crowd of 86,000 the Wolverines,

sota last week, exhibited just enough power and finesse to stop the

U' Professor Crticizes
Life's Ridicule of Band

A statement in Nov. 1 issue of
Life Magazine concerning the
Michigan Marching Band, in-
tended as humor according to
Life officials, was regarded as ser-
ious by Prof. William D. Revelli,
band director, today.
Life said the Michigan band
was "sotpitiful in comparison" to
Ohio State's last year, that the
team was accompanied to the
Rose Bowl by a band of "Detroit
ringers carrying Petrillo cards and
subsidized by the Buick Division
of General Motors."

LIFE HAD concluded the charg-
es with "or at least so the report
was around Columbus."
Part of an article on Ohio

ments were intended as color,
according to Life's Detroit offi-
cials and were not the opinions

But Prof. Revelli was not amus-
ed, nor the many alumni who
contacted him, from as far away
as Oklahoma.

"ONLY STUDENTS are eligible
for the Marching or Concert
bands," he said, "and we are
stricter than most of the nation's
colleges in that, eligibility require-
ments are the same as for ath-
letics, a 2.0.

references to Buick, saying that
the General Motors Division had
subsidized the band to one trip
a year.
"Last year they sent us to the
Rose Bowl," he said. "This year

Judges Choose Winning
Sigma Nu, Alpha Chi Omega Place First
Phi Gamma Delta, Mosher Hall Second
When the judges of this year's record crop of homecoming dis-
plays started touring the town yesterday morning, they had no idea
what a job lay before them.
It took them two and a half hours to look over the 92 displays and
pick the ten winners, and there were some tough decisions to make.
* *
SIGMA NU TOOK first place among the men's entries, followed
by Phi Gamma Delta with second place and Alpha Delta Phi with
third. Psi Upsilon and Zeta Psi were awarded honorable mention.
Alpha Chi Omega won first place honors among the women's
displays. Mosher hall was judged second, and Delta Delta Delta
Honorable mention went to Gamma Phi Beta and Chi Omega.

CROWDS WHICH STOOD and stared at the displays were some-
times heckled by hucksters attempting to "sell" their entries over
loudspeakers. Many of the displays were equipped with sound ef-
fects, moving parts, and blinking lights.
Sigma Nu's winning entry was modeled after an atomic fis-
sion lab. They called it "The Phoenix Athletic Lab," with white
coated Doc Bennie as the brain behind the atomic team.
The second place Phi Gams engineered a "Michigan Point-Ma-
chine," with Illinois players as raw material. A long conveyor belt

Wally Teninga.
The Illini attack, which also
sputtered on the ground, was
centered around the aerial wiz-
ardry of Bernie Krueger, a
heretofore unheralded junior
from Hammond Indiana.
The elusive Illinois quarterback,
dropping back sometimes fifteen
yards behind the line of scrim-
mage with superb protection,
completed 12 amazingly accurate
bullet-like passes out of 21 at-
tempts good for 216 yards, ac-
counting for more than twice the
yardage .of any other individual on

is, another junior who towers 6
feet 4 inches that threatened to
bring Michigan's long winning
streak to an abrupt halt.
But when the clock finally ran
out the Wolverines emerged
with more than enough for the
victory, and a more secure
grasp on their defense of the
Big Nine title.
For the Wolvtrines on a far
from perfect afternoon, the point-
after-touchdown perfection of end
Harry Allis, who kicked four in a
row, was the highlight of the day.
HIS ACCURACY could well
have been the margin of victory,,
but just to make it certain, the
Wolverine sophomore personally
accounted for the final touchdown
when the Maize and Blue led by a
single point.
The contest threatened to turn
into a punting duel between
Michigan's Walt Teninga and
Illinois' Dike Eddleman, as early
in the game neither team was
able to get its offensive machine
Not until 12 minutes of the first
quarter had expired did either
team register a first down and
neither team was able to capitalize
on a couple of breaks that could
havet split the contest wide open.
MIDWAY in the initial period
Teninga dropped back to kick on
his own seven and fumbled a bad
pass from center. It was Illinois
ball on the Michigan five.
In four plays, including a fake
field goal attempt, the hard-
charging Wolverine line stopped
the Illini cold.
Only a few plays later Eddleman
fumbled a Teninga punt on the
