Hitler And Duce Hear Plea
By Budapest To Step In
After Conference Fails
Reich Asks Prague
To Show It Loyalty
BUDAPEST, Oct. 14 -( )- The
Hungarian government tonight or-
dered mobilization of five army
classes totalling approximately 50,000
men after failure to obtain from
Czechoslovakia satisfaction of Hun-
gary's territorial claims.
It was understood the mobilization,
to be decreed formally by the War
Minister tomorrow, would bring to
200,000 the number of Hungarian
troops under arms in the border crisis
intensified bythe breakdown of direct
negotiations between the two nations.
Reinforcements of troops massed in
border regions was ordered.s
After yesterday's failure to come to'
terms with Czechoslovakia at the
Komarom conference, the Hungarian
government today sent delegations to
Munich and Rome to impress upon
the Fuehrer and Il Duce the necessity
of their immediate intervention to
prevent a serious conflict.
German dispatches said Hitler was
able to assure a Hungarian mission
headed by Koloman Daranyi that he
had talked plainly to Czechoslovakia
and tat Hungary might rest content
her legitimate demands would be met.
It was believed, however, one major
difference existed between Hitler and
Mussolini regarding the Hungarian
claims. This was said to be Hungary's
demand for a common border with
Poland, which presumably would
mean a cession of at least a strip f
Ruthenia, Czechoslovkis eastern-
most section.

Rail Wage Cut
Waste Is Million A Day
, Federal Board Told
WASHINGTON, Oct. 14.- (A') -
President Roosevelt's fact finding
board heard testimony today that the
railroads could save a millon dollars
a day by eliminating "indefensible

Senator Wheeler, (Dem., Mont.),
chairman of a Senate Committee in-
vestigating l'ailroad financing, con-
tended that in view of such losses the
roads were not justified in asking
railroad labor to accept a 15 per cent
wage reduction. He said this would
amount to two-thirds of a million
dollars a day.
Basing his assertions upon evi-
dence gathered by his committee,
Wheeler charged the roads had suf-
fered losses through fraud, improper
purchases, waste in receiverships, im-
proper dividends, purchases of equip-
ment at monopoly prices, banker
domination, waste by "paying tribute
which should not be paid," and losses
in the stock market.

officials of the Federal government,
with Europe's recent crisis fresh in
their minds, worked tonight on a
tremendous, four-fold program to
strengthen and modernize nation.

President Roosevelt informed his

If the items in the vast program
receive final presidential approval,
they will go before Congress early
next year, it was indicated. Meantime,
the President is delaying his budget
estimates for the coming fiscal year
to see how much the drastically re-

The primary aim of the utility con-

Richard Reading moved on -two fronts
today to push investigations of

The Mayor ordered a meeting of
the Board of Health for Monday to

The Rev. J. H. Bollens, chairman
of an organization named in the in-

AFL Gives Charter
To Seamen's Union

HOUSTON, Texas, Oct. 14.-()-
The Executive Council of the Ameri-
can Federation of Labor today issued
an International charter to the Sea-
farers International Union of North
America, which will replace the dis-
rupted International Seamen's Union.'
The charter was handed to Harry
Lundeberg of San Francisco, by
President William Green after the
council had met in executive session.
Lundeberg's Sailors Union of the Pa-
cific will serve as a nucleus around
which the AFL hopes to build its new
seamen's organization.

PWA Grants
ToHelp Build
Health Center
Structure Will Harmonize
With Campus Buildings;
Work ToBegin Jan. 1
Ruthven Terms It
A Fitting Reward
'The University will boast a new'
Health Service Center as a result of
the Board of Regent's sanction of a.
$213,000 PWA grant for that pur-
pose, President Alexander G. Ruthven
announced last night. The announce-
ment climaxed a banquet commem-
orating the silver anniversary of the'
Health Service.
Described by President Ruthven as
"a beautiful structure in harmony
with other beautiful buildings on the
campus, and fully equipped with the
most modern improvements," the
new Health Service Center will be
located at the junction of 12th and
Washington Avenues. Construction'
will begin Jan. 1, 1939. The present
center will probably be used for ad-
ditional hospitalization, according to
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, Health
Service head.
Termed A Reward
Terming the new building a fitting
reward for 25 years of service to the
University, President Ruthven urged
that the Health Service take two more
forward strides when the new center
is completed. The first step suggest-
ed by the President was extension of
the compulsory physical examination
of entering students to include like
yearly examinations of all students in
the University. "We will never have
proper service until that is accom-
plished," he declared. Secondly, he
urged that space be set aside in the
new quarters for extending the priv-
ileges of the Health Service to mem-
bers of the academic staff.
Banquet In League1
The anniversary banquet, held in
the Michigan League, was the scene
of much reminiscence as Dr. For-
sythe, acting as toastmaster, dwelled
on the earWy struggles of the Health
Service, founded in 1913, and intro-
duced former and present associates
who in turn recalled old memories.
Due to a change in plans, the new
Health Service Center will not re-
semble the architect's sketch in the
booklet released yesterday in celebra-
tion of the anniversary, President
Ruthven warned.

Minnesotans Are Confident
On Eve Of Game With
Rejuvenated Wolverines
Line Play Factor
To Decide Clas
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 14. (Special
to The Daily)-Hopes high and the
road to greatness clearly envisioned
before them, Michigan's 1938 come-
back eleven awaited their supreme
test today.
Tomorrow, before"-the hbtly par-
tisan eyes of more than 60,000 rabid
Minnesota homecoming spectators,
the Wolverines renew the blue ribbon
classic of the brown jug, emblematic
of supremacy inn the toughest football
rivalry in the nation.
No ordinary meeting is this year's
encounter, and as the Wolverines
rest in their St. Paul hotel, they
realize to a man the importance that
tomorrow's battle will have.
New Era Approaches
Seeking a "new era" four years in
the offing, Coach Fritz Crisler's squad
of 36 is prepai'ed for its toughest as-
signment of the season. As opposi-
tion, notwithstanding the lament of
amateur prognosticators who insist
that the Gopher is weakened, they
will have a typically rugged, fast, and
powerful Minnesota eleven.
Optimism and noisy pre-game ex-
uberance waxed freely in this Jammed
town tonight with everyone predict
ing a victory for the Gophers. Book-
makers offered as high as 5 to 2, and
there were few takers.
Yet in the eyes of competent ob-
servers a close battle tomorrow seems
inevitable with one of football's un-
predictable breaks paving the way to
a victory for either team.
It will be a battle of two great
lines with backfield dynamite in abun-
dance on both squads. Michigan
has its Tom Harmon, Norm Puruck-.
er, Paul Kromer, and Fred Trosko,
anyone of whom can supply the
treasured victory punch. Minnesota's
backfield lasts will be fired by the
highly touted Wilbur Moore, Marty
Christiansen, and Larry Buhler.
Lines To Be Decisive
Still when you unravel the intri-
cate maze that surrounds any foot-
ball game, the clear issue becomes ap-
parent. , Tomorrow's battle will be
won and lost in the line, and the
team that shakes its high powered
backs into the clear most frequently
will carry home the jug.
Michigan's forward wall boasts of
an amazing record this season. In
two games, only 40 scant yards have
been advanced by rushing through
it. Yet, the Wolverines have not met
a team with a line of Minnesota's
undeniable ability. Tomorrow will
test the real Wolverine strength here,
Minnesota's line averages an even
200 pounds from end to end, some
three pounds more than does the
Hichigan forward wall. The Gopher
backs average 197 pounds, nine
pounds more than the Wolverines'.
That makes Minnesota's team av-
erage 199 and Michigan's 193 pounds.
Probable Michigan lineup will find
Dan Smick and John Nicholson at
ends; Capt. Fred Janke and Joe Sa-
villa at tackles; Ralph Heikkinen and
Jack Brennan at guards; Arch Ko-
dros at center; and Forest Evashev-
ski, Tom Harmon, Norm Purucker,
and Ed Phillips in the backfield.
Possible alternates are Vince Valek,

Diehl Praises Health Movement

At Health;


25th Year,

With a tribute to the student health '
movement, which he cited as respon-
sible for improving the mental and
physical health of students, Dean!
Harold S. Diehl of the University of!
Minnesota Medical School, yesterday
helped the University Health Service
celebrate its 25th anniversary.
Tracing the growth of the health'
movement, Dean Diehl pointed out
that such organizations as the Health
Service were unknown 25 years ago.
Sick students were either cared for by
friends or sent home, perhaps to
spread their disease among members
of theirJfamilies. The lack of ade-
quate treatment quite often led to
serious epidemics, he said.
It is through the unceasing efforts
of early college physicians, said Dean
Diehl, that the present health pro-
gram has been developed. Both large
state universities with their huge

service supervises. corrective gymnas-
