east of Moravska-Ostrava.
Presence of three armies in the
crumbling Republic, with a fourth not
far away, created a tinder box of the
entire region.
Germans were advancing eastward
in Slovalia while 20,000 Czechs were
retiring westward in the same area
from Carpatho-Ukraine.
Hungary during the day had given

Ukraine, and Hungarian troops

The fourth army was the Polish,
remaining on its own side of the
border to the north.
Czecho-Slovakia's last day as a
federal republic began with Slovakia
declaring herself-with Germany's
bacing-independent of Prague.
Then Hungary-acting also with
German's backing-sent two ulti-
matums to Prague. One had a 12-
hour deadline expiring at 3 a.m. to-
morrow (9 p.m. Tuesday EST) and
demanded various Hungarian rights
be granted in Carpatho-Ukraine. The
second was a 24-hour order, expiring
at 3 p.m. (9 a.m. EST) tomorrow,
demanding withdrawal of Czech
troops from Carpatho-Ukraine.
Hungary rejected a Czech reply to
the first ultimatum, received four
hours before the deadline. As for the
second, the Hungarian troops raced
northward through Carpatho-Ukraine

House To Discuss
Health Insurance
LANSING, March 14. --P)-A
health insurance bill, limited to the
medical profession only, was released
from a House committee today for
debate on the floor of the House of
Representatives tomorrow.
Attempts to amend the measure to
permit osteopaths, dentists and
nurses to incorporate similar non-
profit associations to provide health
services were rejected in the com-
Rep. Warren G. Hooper, Republi-
can, Albion, sponsor of the bill and
2hairman of the committee, indicat-
ed he would renew his attempts to
obtain the amendments on the floor.
The committee released a compan-
ion bill which would permit osteopath-
ic hospitals and other hospitals to
incorporate non-profit group hospit-
alization cooperatives for the benefit
of persons of limited means.

Is Not Temperamental
Helen Jepson, who makes her first
Ann Arbor appearance in this year'sj
May Festival, represents a modern
prima donna in more respects thanko
trim figure and American parentage
and education.
She isn't temperamental and says
she can't scare up a good outburst
even for showmanship purposes.
She swims in the ocean with utter
disregard for possible dire conse-
quences to her precious vocal chords.
She likes popular music and likes
to sing it; she can cook and, on occa-
sion, does.
Tea parties, cocktail hours and
night clubs see very little of Miss
Jepson, who has had her full meas-
ure of ups and downs. She is ever
striving for perfection in her art and
allows nothing to interfere with her
work at any time. As she puts it:
"I shall never let myself think that
I am at the top. Or at least, I shall
always try to feel that the ladder
really is a greased pole with danger
of one's slipping down much faster
than one has climbed up. An operatic
career is a serious thing-a 24 hour
In her brief career, Mist Jepson has
crowded an amazing series of success-
es in opera, concert, radio and pic-
tures. Since her Metropolitan debut
opposite Tibbett a few years ago,
she has fast become an outstanding
favorite of the Golden Horseshoe.
Probably the greatest compliment
ever paid Miss Jepson came when

these two countries were reported to
have drawn up a secret agreement

section of Slovakia in order to form a
corridor blocking Hitler's push to the
The success of the Slovak revolt,
Professor Stanton observes, has stim-
ulated the Nazis to embark on a more
vigorous propaganda campaign to
arouse a Ukrainian revolt. Here
again the national ambitions of a
people long suppressed and divided
are playing into Hitler's hands.
Ukrainian nationalists began their
separatist movement in the 1860's,
Professor Stanton said, but they have
achieved their aims during only a few
months in 1918. Then Ukrainian aut-
onomy was fostered by Germany, but
the new republic was crushed almost
immediately and its territories divid-
ed among Russia, Rumania, Poland
and Czechoslovakia.
These master count:ies have, by
their persecutions, created more an-
tagonism among the Ukrainians than
have Nazi propagandists, Professor
Stanton claims. Hitler's aim is to focus
the attention of the Ukrainians on
their own subjection until they follow
the lead of Slovakia.

Coops Evoke High Motives
Because it is on a voluntary basis,
Mr. Stevens believes that the coop-
erative evokes a higher level of re-
sponse and participation of its mem-
bers. It expects people to act on
"right" motives, whereas government,
is drawn up to control the worst mo-
Within the cooperative movement,
Mr. Stevens said, are degrees of dif-
ference in cooperation, yet if the
members believe in the principles they
will seek complete cooperation on all;
levels of social structure. The re-
sult, Mr. Stevens perdicts, would be,
a vastly improved social order.
Foresees Beneficial Effect l
A member of a cooperative society'
today finds himself living in two
worlds, Mr. Stevens believes. One is
the world of cooperation; the other is
the world of tradition that has de-
veloped haphazardly from the ef-
fects of competition and compulsion.
As the cooperative movement gains
ascendancy, Mr. Stevens foresees that
the effect on the traditional world
will be beneficial because the in-;
dividuals participating in it are cer-
tain to carry over a better sense of (
