Every time I drive by the Michigan
Central station I am reminded of the
unbelievable numbers of students that

there, hanging on eaves and strad-

team down there in a big wagon, with
all the freshmen and sophomores
hauling on ropes. If the team en-

of red fire all along the hill above

Informed quarters said the Hun-

this suggestion, and insisted upon
immediate occupation by the Hun-

ed Hungarian areas.
Hungarian sources said Hungary

Hungarians and only 145,000 Slovaks.
Czechoslovak 'census figures, how-
ever, showed only 700,000 Hungarians
in the territory demanded.

Program As Socialistic
HOUSTON, Texas, Oct. 12.-(RP)
The American Federation of Labor
convention, in a surprise reversal of
tactics, refused today to put its
stamp of approval on a strongly
worded report from its resolutions
committee criticizing as "socialism"
current government activities affect-
ing the labor movement.
Atevolt broke out on the floor as
soon as Matthew Wdll, chairman of
the committee, finished reading the
document, and there were cries of
opposition on the grounds the report
might be construed as an attack on
President Roosevelt's administration.
Instead of approving the reporjtas
they had previous reports demanding
the revision of the New Deal's Wag-
ner Act and wage-hour law, the dele-
gates voted unanimously to send the
report back to the executive ccuncil1
"for further study."
Woll qukckly defended the com-
mittee findings as "in no sense a]
criticism of the present administra-
tion," but his motion to adopt was
forgotten in the brief but exciting
debate that followed..
Even President William Green
joined the opposition, and sa i the
