Greek Forces lPenetrate Buigarian
Territory For Seven 11i1es
O Broad Front
(By Associated Press)
SOFIA, Oct. 24.-Bulgaria will repel
by force of arms any further invasion
of her territory. Mindful of her sig-
nature of the Neuilly Treaty, Bulgaria
will fight with the few thousand men
left her as a standing army.
Volunteers, flocking to the defense
of their national territory, althoughj
not officially mobilized or called tol
arms will be allowed to battle along-
side their brothers to defend their soil.
Such is the official information im-
parted by the ministry of national de-
fense tonight.
Meanwhile terror reigns in Mace-
donia. The refugee problem, with
men, women, and children fleeing
along impassible roads, stumbling,
falling and dying in exhaustion, is be-
coming too great for the Bulgarian
Red Cross to handle.
Word gomes that ihe Greeks have
penetrated Bulgarian territory to a
1depth of seven mile or more on a
i twenty mile front, and that Petrich,
only a few miles to the northwest
of Demirhissar, where the first clash
occurred, has been under a heavy
bombardment of shrapnel.
Belgrade, the capital of Jugo-Slavia,
thus far has shown a friendly atti-
tude for which Bulgarian statesmen
and people are duly appreciated.
SOFIA, Oct. 24.-Large contingents
Iof Greek troops continue to be sent
I toward the Bulgarian border, the Bul-
garian telegraph agency announces.,
It considers this an indication that the
I Greeks intend to enlarge the scope
of their present offensive.
The government says that the
Greeks have pierced Bulgarian terri-
tory to a depth of more than seven;
miles on a 20 mile front. The agency
declares that the population is highly
excited, and that feeling is growing
that a limit soon must be set to the
retreat of the Bulgarian forces.
The Bulgarian government has sent
a note to Athens, reiterating its de-
nial that Bulgarian troops have at
any time violated Greek frontier out-
posts, regretting that it coinot enter
into direct pourparlers with Greece
and confirming its desire to await the
The note which is in reply to the
Greek demands, declines all responsi-
bility for the frontier incident and
points out that although the Bulgar-
ian and Greek views differed as to the
origin of the trouble, the Sofia gov-
ernutent from the very first suggested
that a committee of inquiry should be
appointed to investigate the matter
and recommended that both govern-
ments should direct their armed
forces to cease hostilities.
Unfortunately, the note continues,
the Bulgar proposal elicited no re-
ply, while on the other hand Greek
troops advanced seven miles into Bul-
garia. Confronted by such a grave
I situation, the Bulgarian government
had no alternative but to appeal to
the league.

Detroit Youth {
Sentenced For
Theft of Coati
Pleading guilty to a charge of
stealing an overcoat from a University
building, John Clark, aged 24, of De-
troit, is in the state penitentiary at
Jackson today, beginning a sentence
of one to five years.
Clark, it is charged, walked into
one of the University buildings which
I for some time had been under sur-
veillance, picked up an overcoat be-
longing to an officer on watch there,
and fled, the officer in pursuit. After
a short chase, the young man sur-
rendered himself to the officer and be-
fore Justice of the Peace Gibson, Fri-
day afternoon, confessed the theft.
The arrest and conviction marks the
first made by authorities in their cam-
paign to check the theft of overcoats
on the campus, and in their opinion
has broken up the ring which is be-
lieved responsible for the 25 thefts
already reported this fall, and the 200
recorded last year. Several weeks
ago the University announced a 're-
ward of $100 for information leading
to the arrest and conviction of the
person or persons responsible for the
thefts. Clark denied that he was in
any way implicated in previous thefts.
The young man gave hiseaddress as
4693 Campblel avenue, Detroit, and
his occupation, as chauffeur. "He is

Will Act As Secretary At Meeting Of
Association Of Universities
Dean Alfred H. Lloyd of the Grad-
uate school, occupying the office of
secretary, will represent the Univer-
sity at the annual conference of the
Association of American Universities
to be held at Yale university, New
Haven, Conn., Oct. 29-31. The assoc-
iation is made up of 26 universities
throughout the country providing
graduate study under certain adopted
standards, having been founded for
the purpose of considering matters
relating to graduate study. The con-
ference this year will undertake in
general an exchange of ideas through
the medium of formal talks on as-
signed subjects. Representatives at
the conference are to witness the Yale-:
Army clash, which event will bring
the three'day program to a close.
Each year the association holds a
conference at a member school. Any
member institution is permitted to,
send as many delegates to these con-'
ferences as it may desire, but is en-
titled to only one vote. The associa-
tion offices are filled by universities,
it is being up to the institution chos-
en for any office to pick a man to
undertake the responsibility for the
work of that office.
The conference at New Haven is to
be attended by a number of Univer-
sity presidents, probably 12 in all,
among whom will be Pres. A. Law-
rence Lowell of Harvard, Pres. Max
Mason, University of Chicago, Pres.
Livingston Farrand, Cornell univer-
sity, Pres. Frank J. Goodnow, Johns
Hopkins, and Pres. James R. Angell

By Joseph Kruger
Ill., Oct. 24.-A wrath'ful, smashing
Wolverine line played havoc with the
Illinois forward wall her'e today and
dispelled Illinois' hope for a repeti-
tion of last year's gridiron victory,
the strong Michigan eleven vanquish-
ing the Illini 3-0 before a capacity
homecoming crowd of 67,000 persons.
Both teams battled furiously
throughout the contest in an effort to
score a touchdown, but each eleven
found its opponent's defense entirely
too strong, and it remained for Ben
Friedman's pretty place kick in the
second quarter from the 25 yard line,
to stand as the margin of victory,
the ball sailing squarely between the
Grange Makes 25 Tries
Harold "Red" Grange, Illinois in-
comparable halfback, found the Wol-
verine lie a tower of strength, and
his valiant attempt to register any
substantial gains against the Michi-
gan team proved futile. Grange's
longest run from scrimmage was a 14
yard gain, the Illinois leader getting
by Michigan's right end the second
time he carried the ball. Grange car-,
ried the ball 25 times during thlecoW
flict, for a gain of 65 yards, and was
thrown for a total loss of 9 yards.
To Michigan's great set of linemen
must go to the bulk of the credit for
today's splendid victory, and to Cap-
tain Bob Brown must go the Individual
glory of the superb defense manifest-
ed by the Wolverines. The Michigan
leader smashed his way through the
opposing linemen repeatedly and then
made brilliant tackles of the Illinois
ball-carriers before they could turn
on full speed.
Benny Oosterbaan,. sterling sopho-
more end of the Wolverine eleven,
failed to make the spectacular catch-
es of passes that first brought him
fame, but did succeed in giving a mar-
velous exhibition of defensive end
playing, stopping the brilliant Grange
in each of his attempts to circle Oos-
terbaan's flank, and covering Gilbert's
punts with an unfailing accuracy.
Sid Dewey, sent into the fray when
Edwards was forced out by an injury,
and Harry Hawkins were the two
other outstanding Wolverine linemen
who are greatly responsible for the
successful checking of "Red" Grange.
Molenda Intercepts' Passes
Bo Molenda, Michigan's husky ful-
back played a prominent part in the
Illinois defeat by intercepting no less
than five forward passes, two of which
he nabbed in the closing five minutes
of play, when the Zuppke eleven
frantically attempted to score, Molen-
ida also accounted for a 29 yard run
Iwhen he broke through the Illinois
line early in the first quarter.
It was Oosterbaan's interception of
Britton's pass in the second quarter
that started Michigan on its way to
the only score of the game, the catch
giving the Yostmen possession of the
ball on the 50 yard line.
Friedman Kieks Goal
A pass, Friedman to Gregory netted
9 yards, and Molenda then plunged
for 6 yards and a first down. After a
pass had been blocked by Grange, and
Molenda had hit the line for- 3 yards,
Gregory tore around Illinois' left end
for 13 yards on Coach Yost's famous
play, which was last uncovered in
that memorable dedication contest at
Columbus three years ago, Harry
Kipke then scoring on that play, and
brought the ball to the Illinois 18
yard line. Three line plays resulted
in bringing the ball towards the cen-
ter of the field and then Friedman
scored the goal that brought victory
to the Wolverines, the kick being
made from a slight angle.
The final five minutes of play was
the most hectic period of the contest
with Illinois striving desperately to
pass her way to a touchdown that
would mean victory.
Gilbert punted from his own 29
yard line to the Illinois 34 yard mark,
finding it impossible to advance the
ball, Illinois kicked to Friedman who
was downed on his own 32 yard line.
