DETROIT, Oct. 13.-(A) -The
United Automobile Workers Union
announced tonight that its represen-
tatives had reached an agreement
with the Chrysler Corp. whereby 8,000
additional men would be put to work
in the company's blants next week.
At thc Plymouth plant, where the
Union's demands for a 32-hour week
resulted in a shutdown last Friday,
1,600 men will be called back to work,

president in charge of operations, an-
Company officials would not . dis-
cuss plans for additional employment

officials said the increases would be
Plymouth workers last week had
demanded that their work week
should consist of only 32 hours in
order that more unemployed auto
workers might be called back to jobs.
Weekler said today that "the cor-
poration's right to operate more than7
32 hours a week under its contract
with the UAW was not involved."
The Union statement said that "thet
32-uhjur week was aot the important
issue, what we wanted was.,to get_ ast
many men back to work as possible."1
Weekler said 'that "after the Briggsk
(Briggs Manufacturing Co., whichC
supplies Plymouth with bodies) strike
several weeks ago it was at first
thought that operating 37 hoursas a
week instead of 32 would enable the
plant to make up lost production and{
at the same time keep up with cur-l
rent orders. Unfilled orders, however,t
have increased sq, much since then
that from a business standpoint the
situation can now best be met by
putting a second shift to work in thet
final assembly operations at this
(Plymouth) plant."k

BERLIN, Oct. 13.-(P)-Nazi
circles predicted tonight that
Adolf Hitler would tell Czecho-
slovakia's Foreign Minister blunt-
ly and directly tomorrow that the
Prague government must cede
quickly to Hungary those portions
of the republic where Hungarians
obviously predominate.
These sources said the Fuehrer
would lose no time in making his
stand clear to the Czechoslovak
foreign minister, Frantisek Chval-
kovsky, who sped tonight toward
Munich to see Hitler.
Hungary called upon the authors of
the four-power Munich accord last
night to meet again "as soon as pos-
sible" to settle her territorial claims
against Czechoslovakia.
The appeal to the heads of the
four major Western powers-Britain,
France, Germany and Italy-capped
a day which saw the breakdown of
negotiations between the two coun-
tries and mounting military prepara-
tions on both sides of the Hungarian-
Czechoslovak border.

At 5:25 the train pulled in. As

train stopped with the car reserved
for the team just beneath the hill on
which the multitude was assembled.
Space was cleared by the side of
the train for the players, who came
single file from the station. As the
band played they mounted the plat-
form, one by one, and took their
places in the car. Scarcely five min-
utes after the train had arrived it was
again on its way, bearing with it
Michigan's hopes for victory Satur-

Roving Reporters Get Answers

"What makes the world go 'round?"
"Where on the campus does Sally
Rand have her office?"
"What is the most athletic insect in
the world?"
That's the kind of questions which
Gil Phares, '39, and Prof. John
Brumm of the journalism department
are sorting by the dozen these days.
When their choices are finally made
another "stunt" will be ready for
Varsity night, which will take place
at 8 p.m. Tuesday before what is ex-
pected to be a capacity audience of
students and townspeople who are
eager to send the band to Yale.

goes on the stage next week will be
