Riot Damage
Nears $200,
Several Hur
Local High School Student
Receives Head Wounds,
ReportedlyFrom Police
Officers Use $100
Worth Of Tear Gas
Damage to city property to the ex-
tent of around $200 and injuries to
several persons, one of them of serious
nature, were counted up yesterday
as the toll of Michigan's week-end
football riots.
Warren Jessop, 16-year-old Ann
Arbor high school student, was taken
to St. Joseph's Hospital Friday night
for treatment of head wounds alleg-
edly received from a patrolman's
night stick as he was standing as a
bystander watching a bonfire on
North University Ave. The wounds
necessitated three clamps.
According to statements substan-
tiated by five high school companions,
Jessop was returning from a moving
picture when he saw the blaze. As the
youths were turning away from the
fire, following orders by police ar-
riving on the scene, one of the patrol-
men mistook a remark of Jessop's and
hurried the boys, unnecessarily strik-
ing Jessop with his stick. The youth
did not collapse, but was taken im-
mediately to the hospital by the squad
George Kyer, the only one of the
three police commissioners who could
be reached last night, said that there
will be a meeting of the police com-
mission tonight. According to Mr.
Kyer, no formal complaint has been
received yet, but if such a complaint
is made, the case will be thoroughly
Many others, mostly students, came
from the riotous evening with minor
cuts and bruises, but no other serious
injury was reported. City engineers
estimate the cost of the pavement
damaged at nearly $200, while $100
worth of tear gas was expended. The
Michigan Theatre, which had received
serious damage in previous football
demonstrations, escaped the trouble

500 Czech Soldiers
Almost Lost Battalion'
Falkenau, Oct. 3 - (R)- More
than 500 Czechoslovak soldiers and
gendarmes were surprised and sur-
rounded by an advance guard of
Adolf Hitler's SS men here today
and held for three hours while they
were threatened with death from
machine gun bullets.
When finally freed the Czecho-
slovaks were deprived of their mo-
tor equipment and arms.
Excitement in surrounding gar-
risons was caused by the incident.
The Carlsbad Garrison detailed
two squads of machine-gunners to
guard the Spa where the German
entrance is not expected until to-
morrow, and sideroads were barri-
Czechoslovaks said the incident
occurred when the advance Ger-
man guard moved in six hours
ahead of the schedule of the Inter-
national Military Commission reg-
ulating occupation of the western
Sudeten Zone.

Fuehrer And Henlein
Get great Ovation
Latest events in the Czechoslo-
vakian situation yesterday were
enacted at London and in the
Sudeten area when Prime Minis-
ter Chamberlain told a critical
House of Commons that the re-
cent Munich meeting had saved
civilization; and when Reichs-
fuehrer Hitler received the hom-
age of the inhabitants of the
newly ceded Sudeten areas.
Reichsfuehrer Hitler
Receives His Ovation
With the German Army of Occupa-
tion in Sudetenland, Oct. 3-(AP)-
Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hitler rode vic-
toriously into the Sudetenland today
and proclaimed the region part o
Germany with the pledge that "never
again will this land be torn away
from the Reich."
He entered the Sudetenland witI
his soldiers, airplanes, armored car
and artillery. The populace, cheering
wildly, strewed his path with flower
and shouted "We thank our Fuehrer.'
Tonight he went to Hof, not fa
west of Eger, to sleep in his specia
tri.Tomorrow he will return ti
the Sudetenland to visit Graslitz
Falkenau and Koenigsberg.
About three hours earlier, at 8 :01
a. in., 2,000 'soldiers of the Germar
army under Gen. Walther von Reich
enau began occupation of Zone three
the Asch-Eger region, of the new
German acquisitions.
The populace raised deafenini
cheers for the soldiers, but these were
dwarfed as the Fuehrer himself ar-
rived in an open car, accompanied b:
Konrad Henlein, Sudeten Germal
party leader and now Germany'
commissioner for Sudetenland.

HOUSTON, TeX., Oct. 3-UP)--
William Green shook his fist today
and caustically accused John L. Lewis
of leading an industrial union move-
ment that Lewis labeled 14 years ago
as "one of , the objectives of the
Communist International."
The president of the American Fed-
eration of Labor, opening its national
convention, couched his keynote
speech in bristling terms as he at-
tacked the C.I.O. chairman.
Green shouted that Lewis in 1924
gave a Senate Committee a state-
ment charging Communists were at-
tempting to gain control of the Ameri-
can Federation of Labor to reach an
objective of "one big union."
Green produced a newspaper clip-
ping describing a speech Lewis de-
livered last month at the Latin-Amer-
ican Trade Union Congress in Mexico
City. Green pictured Lewis address-'
ing a throng of "denim clad workers"
waving red flags in a bull ring in
Mexico City.
Green turned to labor legislation
and thundered:
"American labor will not tolerate
governmental control-governmental
He branded the National Labor Re-
lations Board "an ally of the C.I.O.,"
and added "we won't stand for that."
He asserted the Federation would
ask Congress to amend the Wagner
Labor Act and then urged American
employers to accept the doctrine of
the American Federation of Labor.
He asked employers to accord labor
collective bargaining rights and urged
them to pay wages as high as indus-
try can bear.
