U.S. May Invoke Measures Other
Than All-out Korea Offensive-Ta
By The Associated Press
A Foreign Office spokesman made it clear at a news confere
yesterday that Britain would resist any American proposal to ble

Commenting on the growing discussion of a blockade in Wa

would be dangerous, ineffective, politically unwise and possibly n
harmful to the Western Allies than to the Chinese Communists.

BRUCE ALLEN (12) AND DON EADDY FIGHT FOR REBOUND WITH ILLINI BOB- PETERSON
F A . " e ere
Fighting Illini Humble Wolverines
By DICK LEWIS
Power-laden Illinois raced to its
second consecutive 30-point vic-
tory over Michigan's hapless cag-
ers, drubbing the Wolverines by
a decisive 92-62 margin at Yost
Field House last night.
Coach Harry Combes' sure-
shooting Illini put on an exhibi-
tion of court finesse and alertness
that turned the contest into a
rout early in the second period
and paved the way for the eighth
triumph in ten conference starts
for the Champaign quintet.
IT WAS the bony frame of
6'-9" Illinois center John Kerr
that sent the visitors off and run-
ning. Kerr entered the game with
two minutes remaining in the first
period and the Fighting Illini on
top by a scant two points, 16-14.
The elongated red-head pro-
ceeded to reel off three quick
field goals in the waning sec-
onds of the opening quarter,
and added three more hook
shots in the early moments of
the next stanza.
Kerr opened with a hook and
guard Irv Bemoras followed with a
one-hander to make it 20-14.
After Michigan center Paul Groff-
sky countered with a hook shot
of his own, the roof fell in.
s * *
ILLINOIS CHALKED up six
straight points to extend its ad-
vantage to 26-16 at the quarter,
and came roaring back in the sec-
ond round with six more tallies
to open the gap to 32-16.
A host of Illinois second-
stringers hit from all over the
court as the tally mounted to
a 50-28 figure at the halfway

half with another hook, but that
was a's close as the Wolverines
got in the one-sided fight.
Michigan outscored the Illi-
nois reserves in the final ten
minutes, 20-15, to close the de-
ficit to 30 points. The Illini five
had previously defeated the
Wolverines at Champaign, 96-66.
Guard John Codwell notched
three field goals in the last session
to run his game-high total to 19.
Groffsky followed the converted
forward with' a 15-point output.
The Orange and Black, scoring
its fifth consecutive verdict over
a Michigan squad since 1949, put
four men in double figures.

DULLES was reported to have
explained that the President was
referring in part to the Yalta
Agreement to let Russia take over
Japan's Kurile Islands and South
Sakhalin, when he declared in
his State of the Union message
that the United States would not
recognize secret wartime agree-
ments which permitted "enslave-
ment" of peoples.
The view of the Foreign Office,
it was reported, was that any
one-sided repudiation of an in-
ternational agreement by a major
Western Power would establish a
bad precedent which the Russians
might easily copy, particularly in
the case of Berlin.
COMMENTING on the blockade
discussion, the spokesman told
1. Britain's policy remains as it
was laid down five days ago by
Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden
who told Parliament, "We think it
would be a mistake to have a pol-
icy of blockade."
2. Britain "expects to be con-
sulted" on any such policy and
believes she would be.
3. Britain has made her obje-
ban~s known quite plainly when
the idea has come up in the past
