Notre Dame To Defeat Northwestern's Outfit NEW YORK, Nov. 12. — OT — Our chief crystal gazer has been ill the past week with the flu and the following football selections ,re offered with some reservations: Notre Dame over Northwestern —Frank Leahy, Notre Dame coach, says he discovered this summer during preparations for the Chi cago all-star game just how good Northwestern’s Otto Graham is. He probably found out at the same time how to stop Mr. Graham. The contest is a sellout of 48,500. March Field over Southern Cali fornia—the Trojans aren’t the same since the transfer of Mickey Mc Cardle, their quarterback and ace runner. Dartmouth over Cornell—figur ing that Dartmouth’s cripples will be cured by time of the kickoff and knowing that ■ Bill Maceyko, late of Cornell, now is a member of the Sampson naval team. The game is being played at Boston where 20,000 are expected. Georgia Tech over Tulane—The Georgia Engineers are the class of the Southeast Conference as long as Eddie Prokop romps be hind that Tech line. Ohio State over Illinois — some 40,000 Ohioans will be on hand to cheer their freshmen to victory. Texas A & M over Rice—Hardly more than a scrimmage for the Aggis on their way to the title game with Texas on November 25 Texas over Texas Christian — and the same goes here. Pennsylvania over North Car olina—a spot for an upset but the Quakers should sneak through de spite their mauling last week by Navy and the ailments acquired by Bob Odell. Michigan over Wisconsin — Elroy Hirsch, star of the 1942 Wisconsin team, and numerous other ex- Bad gers now compose the Michigan team and have nothing to fear from Wisconsin’s 1943 freshmen. Navy over Columbia — Despite Columbia’s six straight defeats, some 20,000 will huddle in Baker field to watch the Middies and the antics for their pet goat. Yale over Princeton—Remember when this was one of the coun try's greatest? This year it draws attention only because neither has a defense and Yale end Walter Brown and Princeton Center Charles Brown are twin brothers. That’s enough to lure 20,000. Missouri over Oklahoma—Miss ouri plays its toughest, rival on its home field and will retain the Big Six title for a third year. California over UCLA—The Bears to repeat their 13 to 0 win of earl ier in the season. Duke over Virginia—The Navy transfers haven’t hurt Duke enough to lose to the Cavaliers. Great Lakes over Indiana—The Hoosier civilians were badly bat tered in their fray with Michigan a week ago. Iowa Pre-Flight over Camp Grant —A good tuneup for next week’s Notre-Dame-Seahawk affair. Army over Sampson Naval—Fig uring that the Cadets’ team work will payoff over the star-studded Sampson ' outfit. But it • could be close. Georgia over VMI—The Cook-to Smith passing combine to pay big dividends. Minnesota over Iowa—The Hawk eyes will continue looking for their first victory. Hurrying through the rest: Camp Davis over Presbyterian, Camp Le jeune over North Carolina Pre Flight, Georgia Pre Flight over Clemson, North Carolina State over Davidson, Daniel Field ovei Jack sonville Naval, Bainbridge Naval over Maryland, Brown over U.

Football Owner Indicted On Charge Of Gambling CHICAGO, Nov. 12.—OP—Charles Bidwill. owner of the Chicago Car dinals professional football team, was ordered seized and brought before the Cook county grand jury today by Chief Justice Benjamin P. Epstein of the criminal court. The jurist issued an attachment for the widely known sportsman after he failed to appear before the jurors, who are investigating gambling. Bidwill, who operates a printing company and is a stockholder in the Hawthorne and Sportsman’s Park race tracks, was questioned by the jury last Wednesday. He had been asked to return today, but Assistant State’s Attorney Wil tert Crowley said that, instead, he sent a letter saying "On the advice of counsel I respectfully de cline to be present.” Before the attachment order was issued, Crowley read to the judge a series of questions which had been put to Bidwill Wednesday. In the transcript he was represented as declining to answer a query as to whether he had dealings with a firm that permitted the firm to make "bet tickets.” He was quoted as saying “it might incrim inate me.” He also declined to answer questions about whether the Bidwill printing concern print ed tickets, hand cards and wall sheets “for various bookies in Chi cago and Cook county.” WARNING IS SOUNDED ABOUT OVER-OPTIMISM (Continued From Page One) persal of industry means that bombing attacks must be contin ued and even extended.

He found one gooo thing: Due to Allied attrition Japan’s ship ping situation is getting worse. -V Hungarian Premier Says War Approaching Country NEW YORK, Nov. 12. — (ff) — Premier Nicholas von Kallay of Hungary warned his people today that war was fast approaching the country “from all directions” and announced increased military pre paredness. Quoting a dispatch of M. T. I., Hungarian news agency, the Of fice of War Information said Kal lay warned against “cowardly trai tors” and declared he was prepar ed to take energetic measures tc prevent a recurrence of “the situ ation of 1918.” FLASHLIGHTS WITH BATTERIES PICKARD'S t0« Martlet 84. LEBANON CRISIS MAY HIT ALLIES (Continued From Page One) Italy proper. Eisenhower inter vened with the approval of Lon don and Washington then to tell the French committee that Gen eral Giraud’s command of the French army in Afrrica and its officers must not Be interfered with in an attempted deGaullist purge of alleged Vichyites from its rolls Giraud’s resignation as joint committee president has left de Gaulle in sole authority over that body. It has not changed Giraud’s function as commander of all French troops in Afrirca, Corsi ca, Sardinia or elsewhere within Eisenhower’s jurisdiction. The Washington government has remained silent thus far both as to the reputed deGaullist-forced retirement of Giraud from the committee and as to events in Lebanon which prompted the British warning. Presumably it is now being left to Eisenhower, as previously, to take such action as he deems necessary to insure suc cess of further offensive opera Among those operations must be eventual Franco-American land ings in southern France from the Corsican or other bridgeheads. Giraud’s forces are being re-arm ed and re-equipped for that. It is estimated that a full 300,000 French and French colonial forces will be available when that re-equip ment and training in • the use of Allied weapons is completed. How far that project has yet progress ed has not been revealed. If, with the Corsicon jump-off secured, French forces are now poising with American comrades for a thrust to regain footholds in metropolitan France itself, Gi raud’s , willingness to step out of his committee role would be un derstandable, also Eisenhower’s failure to take any known Action in that respect. It would mean that the French veteran is too busy with military matters to engage in a political fight—and too well secured in control under. Ei senhower of the gateways to France itself to be much concerned by committee actions. CANINE PROBLEM ■NEW YORK, Nov. 12.-M*-Beth Erown wrote a book called “All Dogs Go To Heaven,” but today she was looking for an earthly home for 86 dogs. Her responsibility started when she took over the care of 18 dogs cwned by an 83-year-old dog train er cited by the health department for keeping them in.his home in violation of the city’s sanitary code The trainer,' Daniel Lewis, receiv ed a suspended sentence on the charge. But Miss Brown’s problems snow balled, because she placed the Lewis dogs in a Long Island ani mal shelter on the condition she help its owner find homes for 70 other dogs already being cared for there. To date, she said, she had found homes for only two of Lewis’ dogs. -V BREADLESS MEALS ALGIERS, Nov. 12—Ml—Bread less meals in Algerian restau rants and other cereal economies have been ordered to maintain a daily ration of 300 grams (about 10 ounces) per capita until the next hspfst. Wildcats Edge Visiting Bulldogs, 13-0 RUNNING ATTACK DECIDING FACTOR Dyches, Lawrimore, And Sutton Spark Wil mington Power Before a near capacity crowd at Legion Stadium Friday night, the Wilmington Wildcats nosed out the invading Durham Bulldogs 13 to 0. The game had all the thrills and spills of big-time football and the local eleven looked impressive in scoring once in the second quarter and again in the third. The Wild cats displayed an effective ground game that was sparked by the sensational plunging of “Piggy” Dyches. The Cats relied almost en tirely on their running attack which operated off a single wing forma tion with Dyches, Sutton, and Low rimore alternating on the ball carrying. The Bulldogs were pretty well stymied on the ground but exhibit ed a scintillating aerial attack that had the Wildcats in trouble consistently. Late in the first half, Carlton uncorked a long toss to O’Brian who was knocked out of bounds on the Wilmington three. When the gun sounded ending the half the Bulldogs had a second and goal on the Cats’ two. First score of the ball game came in the second period and was the climax of a fifty yard sustained drive. Dyches bucked over from the four and Mcllwain booted the extra Doint. The second half found the Dur ham passing attack clicking for short gains with Reed, substitute back, doing a nice job of spot pass ing to the rangy Carlton in the flat zone. On one occasion, Mcllwain, in the Cats’ secondary batted down a pass on his own fourteen that seemed almost certain for a com pletion. Late in the third canto the Wild cats started on their own twenty and a mixture of off-tackle slashes and end sweeps drove to the Dur ham seven-yard line. Dyches hit the line for the score, but was stopped by the Durham forward wall on the attempted conversion. Both teams displayed a lot of power at different intervals during the contest, but it was evident that the Wildcat running attack was the determining factor in the outcome A rather porous Cats’ pass defense enabled Durham to complete 14 passes of twenty attempts. The Cats rolled up fifteen first downs while the losers acounted for eight most of which came through the air. The pile-driving of Dyches was cutstanding for the Wildcats with the whole forward wall giving him plenty of support Reed, Loftis, and Carlton were the big guns for the vanquished Bulldogs. GERMANSUPPLY FUNNELS STRUCK (Continued From Page One) in the entrance to the Mt. Cenis tunnel at Modane, France, which the Germans had only recently repaired after an RAF raid Sep tember 16. Coupled with these two crippling blows to German efforts to keep the Nazi armies in Italy supplied was the Wednesday daylight Fly ing Fortress attack from Mediter ranean airdromes on the railway bottleneck of Bolzano .iust below the strategic Brenner Pass through the Alps from Austria to Italy. In addition to these major heavy operations, the British bomber command last night once m ore sent 400-mpb Mosquitos over Ber lin—the first time since October 8—and others attacked Hannover and objectives in the industrial Ruhr valley. From all these operations seven RAF bombers were missing, giv ing the RAF a total loss for the month to date of 26 bombers in three major assaults. All of the Liberators retprned safely to their Mediterranean bases from the raid on the Cannes area, which they made unescorted. In moonlight so brilliant the crews could pick out roads, fields and railways 11 across France, making navigation only a matter of map reading, the RAF bomb ers sent a great concentration of explosives showering on the glis tening rails of the Riviera France Italy line. A communique said the line was attacked at several points, the main blow being at the railway center at Cannes, with bombing '‘heavy and well concentrated ” Returning crews reported the big bombs landed squarely among flares dropped by preceding path finder- groups which marked the target, and said that only slight opposition was encountered from coastal defenses and from one or two fighters seen over Cannes. The fact that a plant producing ball bearings again was a target for the Americans was new indi cation of the intensive drive against factories throughout Nazi dom producing this vital part of war machinery. The Fifteenth Air Force itself has twice bombed a bearing fac tory at Villar Perosa near Turin, and the Briths-based U. S. Eighth Air Force had delivered two dev astating blows on the Nazis’ great bearing works at Schweinfurt, Ger many. » I SON SHOWS ROOKIE DAD HOW sw tr *■ "THIS IS THE WAY it’s done,” is the advice James E.

(International) j GERMANS APPEAR AFRAID OF LOSS (Continued From Page One) strategy is that they do not dare to surrender their armies before they get them back home. II they did, such is the implacable hatred they have aroused among the occupied peoples, they might be massacred in Russia, Poland, the Balkans, Italy, France, Nor way and the Low Countries. Or the other hand, if they can disen gage themselves and withdraw within the old frontiers of the Reich, they could expect protec tion from the Allied armies when they surrender. This maf not be the correct ex planation, but, if we assume, as we must, that the German offi cers are professional soldiers, whc think realistically about the Ger man army, it is a rational explan ation. It is a good reason why the German army goes on fight ing. It takes account also of Mr. Churchill’s warning that England may still be attacked in a way which, while it will not "affect the final course of the war,” may “call for the utmost efficiency and devotion in our fire-watchers and home guards.” If the Germans are now fighting the most gigantic rear-guard action in military his tory for the purpose of getting the bulk of their troops back home before they surrender, then a counter-attack on England to de lay the invasion from England may well be part of theiv plan. It is clear that the German army is no longer fighting for Germany, but for itself. The German troops who are not killed in battle may, by this rear-guard action, survive the war. But while the survivors stand to gain, the German nation stands to lose by every month that the war is now prolonged. The air bombardment will reach a scale of violence in the coming months __.„„u in-f'iifi irrenarahle damage upon the German econ omy. Moreover, if what the re treating German armies have done in Kiev and in Naples is a sample of what they intend to do every where else, then the justice which Europe will mete out to Germany will not for a long time be temp ered with much mercy . The Germans are in the appal ling dilemma where if they try to save their army from an absolute catastrophe'fhey will commit new horrors, as they withdraw it, for which the German nation will in evitably have to suffer the conse quences. . United Nations plans now in the making are certain to be profound ly affected by the length of the war and by the kind of devasta tion which the retreating German armies leave behind them. It is, therefore, supremely important to develop further the great achieve ment of the Moscow conference when it established the means for combined action by the great pow ers The necessary next phase is to do all that can be done now to make it possible for the liberated nations to set up effective govern mental authority when the Ger mans leave. Britain, Russia and the United States will have to gov em the wreck that was the Ger man Reich and perhaps the re mains of the Axis satellite states. But it is imperative that they should be spared the need to gov ern Allied territory, and indeed that the allied European states should play their part in restor ing order in Europe. For this reason wisdom in deal ing with France is critically im perative now. To a_!old£1V1,ld’s' order in liberated France, to be able to count upon the rapid es tablishment of a strong democrat fic and friendly French £^^n ment, is the one and only sure way to make all ol western Europe underwrite what was achieved and planned at Moscow. And if west ern Europe is secure for a good settlement, the prospects in cen tral and eastern Europe will be immensely more favorable. The latest news from Algiers— if we do not misunderstand it and act unwisely—is reassuring. This may astonish those who continue to misinform themselves about French affairs by thinking that what is at stake is a personal con test between General De Gaulle and General Giraud. They should note that the changes at Algiers occurred at the precise moment when Mr. Churchill was saying in London “I rejoice with every in crease of unity and consolidation that I notice in the French Na tonal Commttee at Algers.” The changes at Algiers, which have just been carried out, have been anticipated for some time by those who are well informed, and Mr. Churchill is very well informed. There is no contest between Gen eral De Gaulle and General Gi raud because General Giraud has no political following in France whereas General De Gaulle’s fol lowing is now greater than it has ever been. But that does not mean that General De Gaulle is moving toward a personal dictatorsnip. On the contrary, the signs are clear and increasingly positive that his personal power is contained within French republican traditions and institutions. It is very republican and very French that General Giraud, as commander in chief of rhe armies, should hold no political office and should be placed under civilian authority. It is equally re publican and French that the com mttee should now have been made to inclue members of the r°s!st ance in France and also of the French Parliament. The National Committee today is more demo cratic and more representative than it has ever been before. In this development, which we ought to encourage, lies our best hope of an orderly liberation of western Europe. -V DEBATE ON TAXES WILL BEGIN SOON (Continued From Page One) of individual and corporation in comes.

BRIGADE MEETS PRESBYTERIAN Fifteen Thousand Expect ed To Witness Soldier Collegian Battle CAMP DAVIS, Nov. 12—There will be no rationing of touchdowns this afternoon on the Camp Davis athletic field when Presbyterian College of Clinton, S. C., collides with the Blue Brigade. Between both teams a total of 297 points have been registered thus far this season and only once—the A set back at Camp Lejeune—has either outfit been blanked. From T-formations on both sides will emerge full spinners and half spinners, wide lateral plays, straight line smashes, ends around, and a flock of aerials sufficient to test any defense. Coach Lon MacMillan’s visiting collegians in flicted a 26 to 6 defeat upon the soldiers last season and Major Henry A. Johnson, Brigade men tor, is wary of their overhead and ground attack. An estimated crowd of 15,000 AA soldiers is expected to foregather at the 2:30 p.m. kickoff, in an ticipation of touchdown carnival day. Hank Caver, Blue Stocking quarterback, is the pitching spe ujctixst ctxxxuxxg uxe jiivducxs axxu his receivers are the agile Jack Adams, end, who scored twice last year opposed to the AAs: Dick Kaleel, at the other flank, and halfbacks Inman and Gres ham. Mainstays in the line in clude Bud McLaughlin at tackle, and Gene Avery at center. Against Georgia U. last Saturday the “Pressies” accumulated 225 yards via passes and rolled up twelve first downs. To spike these full-powered speedsters Camp Davis will unlim ber its choicest Antiaircraft gun ner, Norm Standlee, from his full back slot, surrounded by Johnny Bezemes, ex-Holy Cross swiftie; Frank Waugh, a Rockforrd, 111. broken field stylist, and blocking back Stan Yoder. Standlee, play ing but half the game against Fort Monroe, delivered a flashback to his All-American days at Stanford U. and with the Chicago Bears in the pro circuit. The “Steamer” can boot them consistently for 50 yards and when not carrying the ball, is a blocker and tackier of equal ability. Joe NeSsing, Burr Baldwin, George Breeding, Bob Barton, Jim Krumtinger, and Allie Goldberg supply a wealth of flanker talent that figures to counteract the Presbyterian wingmen’s worthy pass-snagging. At the tackle posts, with John Melius a doubtful starter due to a bad knee and Bill West a like ly absentee because of soldiering. Bill Weekes and John Shubert might get the nod. Guard assign ments will rest with dependables njwwci tuiu naip rumavera and as usual Frank “Cowboy” Vannoy will function at center im possible full time duty. Possessing an undefeated home record this campaign Camp Davis gridders will attempt to uphold their prestige while seeking their sixth victory before a capacity audience.
