'M' Cagers Win;
Pucksters Tied

Basketball.. .
By SY SONKIN
Michigan's cagers broke loose in
the second half last night to win
a 51-40 victory over a previously
unbeaten University of Toledo
quintet.
For the first half it was a close
game, with the Rockets a con-
stant threat to overhaul the Wol-
verines.
* * *
IT WAS A FAST first half, too,
with a total of eleven personal
fouls being called, nine against
the Maize and Blue and two
against the visitors.
But the second period saw a,
rougher brand of ball, and the
beginning of a steady parade
from one foul line to the other.
There were almost three times
as many misdemeanors in the
final stanza, 32 to be exact with
the quintets splitting them evenly.
FORWARD BOYD McCaslin
sparked the Wolverine attack
with 15 points, while Ed LeRoy led
the losers, netting six field goals
and one foul shot for 13 points.
With center Bill Roberts in-
jured, 4rv Wisniewski started
the game for the Maize and
Blue at the pivot position.
Using a man-to-man defense,
Michigan stopped the high-scor-
ing Toledo outfit cold. The Rock-
ets hadn't been held to less than
65 points until meeting the Wol-
verines.
CHARLIE HARMON and Dal
Zuber, the highly-touted forwards
on the Ohio quintet, were held to
a combined total of 13 points by
Pete Elliott and Bob Harrison, but
it was Iarmon who connected
with themost spectacular shot of
the evening.
Midway in the second half, the
Toledo forward found himself
with the ball behind the basket
and his way out blocked by Wol-
verines.
He took one long stride to get
under the netting and lost his bal-
ance, but, on his way down, Har-
mon let go of the ball and watched
it sail cleanly through the hoop.
During the first half, no one in
Yost Field House could be sure
which way the game was going.
MICHIGAN JUMPED right off
to a 2-0 lead on McCaslin's initial
tally, but saw Toledo tie it up on
Zuber's two-pointer.
The Wolverines pulled ahead

Hockey-...

i

By B. S. BROWN
But for an oversight by the offi-
cials, Michigan's hockey team
would have had its first win of the
season last night.
The final score was 2-2.
* * *
AFTER THE Wolverines jumped
off to a first period lead on a goal
by Wally Gacek, the Windsor
Spitfires and the home club bat-
tled on even terms, each scoring
one goal in the middle stanza,
until late in the final period.
Then came the break of the
game that knotted the count.
Gerald Lawerence, Spitfire for-
ward, shot past Jack McDonald
from a steep angle as the Michi-
gan goalie, who undobutedly
played one of the finest games
of his career, was coming out of
the net to cover.
Lawrence's shot hit the padding
of a team-mate who was standing
in the crease and. went into the
nets for the tying goal.
* * *
BUT THE OFFICIALS failed to1
see the man in the crease and al-
lowed the goal. It was tallied at
15:55.
McDonald and several of the
Michigan players protested the
coach Jim Skinner admitted
score but to no avail. Spitfire
after the game that the shot
shouldn't have been allowed.
The game started off fast and
rough with both teams getting in
shots cn goal, only to have them
saved by the respective goalies.
The first break came at 9:08 of
the initial period.
DEFENSEMAN Bob Fleming
took the puck over the blue line,
fired it to Gordie MMillan off to
the left, and the first line center
fired a hard one to the right of
the crease which Wally Gacek
basted by Dan Kewley, Windsor
net-tender.
The remainder of the period
saw fast skating and vicious
checking, with Fleming drawing
the only penalty for hooking.
Earlier in the stanza Al Ren-
frew, Michigan captain, was
tagged with a two minute el-
bowing penalty, and Jim Hay,
Windsor, served time for hook-
ing.
There were a pair of penalties
in the second period, and two in
the final stanza.
MICHIGAN WENT INTO a two
gcal lead at 13:07 of the second
frame on a beautifully executed
play by McMillan and Renfrew.
McMillan carried the puck over
the blue line to within 15 feet of
the Spitfire nets, dropped the puck
to Renfrew and went in on goal.
Renfrew shot the disk behind Mc-
Millan, beating Kewley with a
near corner shot.
Windsor drew within a goal of
the Wolverines late in the pe-
riod on a rebound shot past Mc-
Donald. Francis O'Grady grabbe

GRAHAM LECTURE:

Costa Rica
Invaded By
Small Army
Claim Invasion
By Nicaraguans
COSTA RICA has been invaded
by armed forces. The government
said they came from Nicaragua,
and were headed by former Presi-
dent Rafael A. Calderon Guardia.
In Managua, Nicaragua, Gen.
Anastasio Somoza, minister of war
and head of the national guard,
denied that the invasion had been
launched from Nicaragua. He said
he had unconfirmed information
that Calderon Guardia's forces
landed at Puerto Soley, about 13
miles from the Nicaraguan border,
and entered nearby De La Cruz.
,' , *
ONLY NINE DAYS ago the
Costa Rican Junta (military gov-
ernment) headed by Jose Figueres
disbanded the nation's army of
5,000, declaring it wanted school
teachers more than soldiers. The
Junta overthrew the government
of President Teodoro Picado last
May 8 after a short revolution.
Dispatches from Guatemala
reported the followers of Cal-
deron Guardia had reached the
outskirts of Liberia, capital of
the province of Guanacaste and
about 60 miles south of the Nic-
araguan border. Liberia is
about 180 miles northwest of
San Jose, Costa Rican Capital.
The Costa Rican government
suspended constitutional guaran-
ties. Thousands of citizens were
reported volunteering to fight the
invaders.*
A TRAVELER from Costa Rica
who reached Panama said reports
up to noon Saturday indicated the
invaders made up a well-armed
force of about 800 men, all Costa
Ricans. He added that demobili-
zation of the Costa Rican army
had not yet been carried out.
Broadcasts from Costa Rica
heard in Guatemala quoted Fig-
ueres as having sai: "This is not
a counter-revolution. This is war
between Costa Rica and Nicara-
gua."
In Washington, Costa Rican
Ambassador Mario squivel told re-
porters he would ask the U. S.
State Department and the organi-
zation of American States (OAS)
for help under the new Rio De
Janeiro mutual defense treaty.

Spy Papers Tell

Discovered in Chambers' Pumpkin
WASHINGTON-()-Secret U.S. Government papers obtained
ten years ago by an admitted Communist agent contained interna-
tional dynamite, it has been disclosed.
Twelve of some hundreds of papers uncovered by the House
Committee on Un-American Activities in its investigation of a Com-
munist spy network were made public by the Committee with State
Department approval. The papers were from confidential State De-
partment files.
ONE OF THE DOZEN was among the secret information which
had been recorded on microfilm. a

SHOT PUT STAR-Charlie Fonville, University shot put star who set a new world's record last
spring, is now recovering from an operation in his Detroit home. Fonville may return to school
next semester, but his recent operation will keep him from participating in athletics for at least
another year. Coach Don Canham reports that Fonville may be able to compete in 1950.

MAY RETURN IN 1950:
Fonville Recoveri ng from Operation

By BILL CONNOLLY
Charlie Fonville may be back
throwing the shot for Michigan,
but if he does it won't be before
the spring season of 1950.
Fonville, who entered the Uni-
versity Hospital last October, was
released last week and is now
resting in his Detroit home. He
has one year of eligibility remain-
ing, and Coach Don Canham re-
ported that he may be able to
compete in 1950.
AS WAS INDICATED before
the operation, Charlie will be in-
active for at least another year,
possibly longer. Right now he has
a cast on his back which will be
there for at least three months.
Canham reported that after
the operation, Fonville felt the
first relief since his back started

to trouble him last April. It was
then, April 17th to be exact,
that Charlie set his world re-
cord of 58 feet one-fourth inch,
at the Kansas Relays.
This distance was officially re-
cognized by the National AAU
last week, and now stands as the
farthest distance the 16 pound
sphere has ever been thrown.
SHORTLY AFTER the Kansas
meet, the pain became more pro-
nounced and it was a downhill
fight for the Wolverine shot ace
from then on.
After undergoing a three
week observation period in the

University Hospital, Fonville
was operated on by Dr. Carl
Badgley last October 29th.
The operation forced Charlie to
leave school for a semester, but
he may return in February. If
he does, however, he will carry a
light schedule, as he was told by
his doctors to keep off his feet as.
much as possible during his year's
convalescence.
The surgery, which fused a de-
tached vertabra in the spinal col-
umn, was termed successful by
Coach Canham. Any operation of
this type, however, calls for com-
plete inactivity for a considerable
time afterwards.

This film was found last week
in a hollowed-out pumpkin on
the farm of Whittaker Cham-
bers, a self-admitted former
Communist.
Chambers has accused Alger
Hiss, former State Department of-
ficial, and others of passing some
of the secret documents to him.
This has been denied by Hiss.

A NEW YORK Federal grand
jury, which also has been looking
into the extent of the Communist
espionage, is going to have a look
at the microfilms.
Transfer of the films from
the safes of the Committe of
Un-American Activties to those
of the gratnd jury was author-
ized today.
The 12 documents made public
by' the Committee would have
been "extremely valuable" to any
foreign governments which got
them back in 1938, diplomatic
authorities said today.
The documents show that
Hitler might have known some
of Britain's secret naval plans
18 months before he actually
plunged the continent into war
by invading Poland.
""n~'a'd.*g * 't(*""
ANOTHER told of Japan's in-
creasing belligerence; of the one-
time belief by a British official
that support of Chiang Kai-Shek
would be detrimental to British
interests in the Orient.
These were all things that if
brought into the limelight at the
time might have had marked
repercussions on the interna-
tional picture at a time when
the United States was far from
ready for war.
The 12 papers made public by
the Un-American Activities Com-
mittee ranged over a wide se-
quence of events.
AMONG THE documents are
typewritten copies of 21 diplo-
matic messages signed by such
pre-war figures in American di-
plomacy as former Ambassador to
France William C. Bullitt, former
Ambassador to Japan Joseph C.
Grew, and former Ambassador to
Poland Anthony J. Drexel Biddle,
Jr.
Several of the documents are
marked "strictly confidential,"
but the House committee said
the State Department indicated
that with the long passage of
time their publication would no
longer be considered "danger-
ous" to American security.
But their potential value to
other governments at the time
they purportedly "leaked" from
the State Department is evident
from a cursory examination.
Yet one of the documents, a
memorandum which Committee
records say is in the handwrit-
ing of Alger Hiss, former State
Department' official, spoke of
Britain's battleship building
plans in that critical year 18
