against Hungary today in a friendly.
but unmistakable objection to any
hasty partition of what is left of the
Republic of Czechoslovakia.
Hungary, remnant of the pre-war
Austro-Hungarian Empire, is anxious
to obtain some sizeable portions of
Slovakia in the wake of Germany's
acquisition of Sudetenland.

Rumors Of Big Parade
Led By Dewey spread;
Banquet Is Tomorrow
More than 1,000 students gathered
last night at the Michigan Central
station to cheer the football team,
the Varsity Band, and 65 of their
fellow students off to New Haven
for the Yale-Michigan game Satur-
Rumors last night had it that the
band and students would march
through the heart of Manhattan to
the Lincoln Hotel, their headquarters;
that a motorcycle escort would lead
the parade; that the parade would be
led by Thomas E. Dewey, candidate
for governor of New York and a
Michigan alumnus; and that Mayor
Fiorello LaGuardia would deliver a
welcoming address.
A telephone call to the New York
police department last night brought
the information that no one had
made any arrangements with the de-
partment for any kind of parade
whatsoever. It was known, however,
that Prof. William D. Revelli had
given marching instructions to the
members of the band.

Subject Of Talk

Germany Replies
To all the rumors of imminent
trades which wouli remake the map
of Eastern Europe, Germany has re-
plied unofficially that the remain-
ing minorities questions will be
reached in good time.
' Moreover, informed Nazis have in-
dicated that when that time comes,
the decision will rest with Germany
and Italy, and will be guided strictly
by a determination of predominant
While reports of border troubles
issued from Hungarian-Slovakian as
well as from Sudeten-Bohemian
borders, the Czechoslovak govern-
ment took action which was regard-
ed as an added index of a turn toward
the political right.
Police Outlaw Reds
In Prague the police outlawed the
Communist Party and suspended its
newspapers in Bohemia, Moravia and
Silesia. Previously Slovakia had out-
~ wed the-,Communists. That left
them integral as a party only in Ru-
thenia, the easternmost tip of the
Republic, and in that area they were
considered distinctly weak.
Prague also rounded up an unesti-
mated number of Jews in an effort to
meet the vexing refugee problem.
Former residents of Sudetenland by
the thousands, fleeing sectors into
which the German military marched
after the "Peace of Munich," have
streamed into Bohemia.
Though the Czech general staff and
DNB, the official German news
agency, said a half dozen persons had
been killed in disorders on the Su-
deten-Bohemian border, the German
administration in the newly-acquired
areas prepared to take control fromi
the hands of the military and give it
to the civil authorities.
Need For Revision
Of Drama History
Seen By Mueschke
Prof. Paul Mueschke of the English1
department stated last night that
existing histories of the drama will
need thorough revision as a result of
the careful scholarly study now going'
on in order to make them accurate.
In his address before the English
Journal Club in the Rackham School
he declared "erroneous" the prevail-
ing attitude that 17th Century drama
has been fully and accurately inter-
preted. To substantiate his statement
he pointed to the failure of many
contemporary scholarly articles and
works to deal with the important
problems of the period. They are not,
he added, representative of the real
Indicative of the new trend in a
sound interpretation of the Renais-
sance in 17th century drama, he said,
are Granville-Barker's "Shakespear-
ian Prefaces" and the existing opera-
tive venture at Huntington Library
in San Marino, Cal., in which sTchol-
ars of the Renaissance are devoting
themselves to a careful study of the
culture of the time and its relation
to the drama.

rado River Expedition .A 1938" will be
the subject of a lecture given by Dr.
Elzada U. Clover of the botany de-
partment at 4:15 p.m. today in the
Rackham building auditorium. Dr.
Clover attracted nation-wide atten-
tion as a member of the expedition
last summer.
The colored movies used to illus-
trate the review of the 666 mile river
trip include views of shooting the
rapids, of plant and animal life and
geologic formations in the canyon.
Pictures of the boats which were
especially designed for the trip by
Norman D. Nevills, leader of the ex-
pedition. are also included.
"The expedition was started when
I was collecting cacti in Mexican
Hat, Utah,, remarked Dr. Clover.
While there I ran into Mr. Nevills and
it took about 30 minutes to decide on
it, one year to plan, and 53 days to

Dies Witness
Says Reds Run
Labor Unions
Membership Dropping Off
According To Detroit
Police Superintendent
WASHINGTON, Oct. 20-0P)-Fred
W. Frahm, Detroit's Superintendent
of Police, told the House Committee
on- unamerican activities today that
unless Communist influences are re-
moved from that city's labor unions
an "awful clash" is coming and "a
lot of people are going to get hurt."
With indignant emphasis, he testi-
fied that Communists "instigated" 75
per cent of the numerous strikes
which have occurred in the Detroit
area in recent years. Evidence is
plentiful, he added, that "Communists
dictate" the policies of the unions.
As a result, he continued, many
union members have grown "dissatis-
fied," are "dropping out" or stopping
their dues payments.
"So that," Chairman Dies (D-Tex.)
interposed, "the Communists are
actually destroying the unions?"
"There is no question about that."
"Membership is falling off? Men
are quitting in droves? Is that right?"
"Yes, sir."
Another witness, John P. McGillis,
Secretary of the Detroit Council of
the Knights of Columbus, testified
that Communist organizations had
collected "thousandsand nthousands
of dod s in Detroit," for which no
accounting had ever been given.

JERUSALEM, Oct. 20--UP)-Small;
groups of Arab prisoners, rounded up

The concentration camp is on Frank
Mountain, between Jerusalem and
Bethlehem to the south, where the
crusaders offered their last pro-
longed resistance to the Moslems.
The Holy Land lapsed into an omi-

poking into the dark recesses of the
Old City to clean out the last vestiges
of rebel rule.

China Fortifies
Canton As Japs
NearKey City
Invaders Within 20 Miles
Of Metropolis Rapidly
Advancing, Report Says
HONGKONG, Oct. 20.-(P)-The
defenders of Canton tonight were
hastily digging trenches and throwing
up barricades in the streets, appar-
ently in anticipation of a last-ditch
struggle with the Japanese within
the South China metropolis.
The 100,000 persons remaining in
Canton after the exodus of hundreds
of thousands of non-combatants were
showing no sign of panic-even with
semi-official Japanese reports plac-
ing one fast-moving column of in-
vaders within 20 miles of the city.
French forces defending the insular
foreign settlement, Shameen, were
rushing their own barricades to com-
pletion. Canton authorities canceled
plans to leave the city.
The Japanese reports indicated the
advanced column was risking defeat
at the hands of the numerically su-
perior Kwangtung provincial troops
by its rapid "back door" campaign
against the metropolis.
These advices said the column had
side-stepped Chinese forces arrayed
near Tsungfa, 30 miles northeast of
Canton, and was expecting to strike
a lightning blow at the primary de-
fenses of the city by a drive down
the Tsungfa highway.
Chinese military authorities denied
the Japanese claims of rapid strides
toward Canton, insisting that Tseng-
shin, which the Japanese said was
taken yesterday, and Sheklung, which
the Japanese said they had entered
on the same day, were still in Chinese

Implicates Two More,
NEW YORK, Oct. 20.-(P)-A
frightened-eyed German girl, Frau-
tein Johanna ("Jenni") Hofmann, 26,;
alleged "payoff" agent of a 'German
spy ring, wept today as a statement
was read in Federal Court quoting he'
as saying she helped steal American
military secrets because "I believed
I was doing my duty to my father-
If convicted, the red-haired frau-
lein and two co-defendants face a
maximum sentence of 20 years in
The statement, described by As-
sistant U. S. Attorney Lester C. Duni-
gan as a "confession," quoted Miss
Hofmann as admitting she acted as
a courier of purloined U. S. Army
and Navy secrets to her superiors in
As the alleged confession was read,
the smiling German girl lost her
poise for the first time and dabbed
nervously at her lips with a handker-
chief, Her eyes brimmed with tears
when the phrase "duty to my father-
land" was read.
The statement, introduced over the
shouted protests of Miss Hofmann's
attorney, George C. Dix, who asserted
his client was an "innocent tool" and
the victim of a "frameup," quoted
the Dresden-born fraulein as admit-
ting she knew the inner workings of
the spy plot.

are nine Conservatives, seven running
on the Liberal Coalition, five on the

forms in the Student Publications
