hungary Sends
Czechs A New
Compromise
Imredi Threatens Action
If 'Really Conciliatory
Proposals' Are Rejected
Demand Answer
Within 48 Hours
BUDAPEST, Oct. 24--I)-Premier
Bela Imredi tonight declared that
should "our really conciliatory pro-
posals be rejected" by Czechoslovakia
the Hungarian government has de-
cided "to enforce its justice by all
means available to the nation."
The declaration was made in a
press statement shortly after a gov-
ernment communique announced a
new compromise proposal had been
submitted to Prague by which Hun-
gary shaved her demands for terri-
torial cessions by about 30 per cent.
New Demands Are Milder
The compromise suggestion was of-
fered after Hungary had stood fdst
for weeks in her demands for return
of large areas inhabited by Magyars
in Czechoslovakia, demands whicn
Czechoslovakia has insisted were ex-
cessive.
In his press statement Premier Im-
redi stressed that Hungary hoped for
a peaceful settlement, an attitude that
earlier had been emphasized by a
government communique.
This followed preparation of an
army of almost 500,000 men along
the Czechoslovak frontier for any
emergency and reports in well-in-I
formed circles that it would march oni
Wednesday if Czechoslovakia had not
by then acceded to previous Hun-1
garian demands.
Hungary's ew stand was under-i
stood in diplomatic circles to have1
been taken only after Germany, Italy1
and Poland strongly advised her not
to continue pushing demands which
would be unacceptable to any Czecho-
slovak government and which would
endanger p~ae.
Hungary's Offer Is 'Final'
Hungary's offer, described as "fin-
al," and with an answer demanded
within 48 hours, contains the follow-'
ing four proposals:
1. That undisputed areas of Czecho-
slovakia claimed by Hungary be occu-
pied by Hungarian troops without
further delay..
2. That plebiscites be held in dis-
puted districts not later than Nov. 30,
3. That in the event Czechoslovakia
should reject these demands, a Ger-
man, Polish and Italian joint jury
should arbitrate the dispute.
4. That the right of "self-determin-
ation" be given to Ruthenians, Slo-
vaks, and other nationalities.

Murphy Condemns Reactionary Forces

-Daily Photo by Freedman
Pictured above is Gov. Frank Murphy absorbed in a lengthy discussion
of current politics with Daily reporter Stan Swinton in the Union Tap-
room late yesterday afternoon. Although voice-weary after a long tour,
the Governor granted a detailed interview and discussed Michigan
state politics.
Governor Attacks Dies Probe;
Pledges State Reorganization

By STAN M. SWINTON,
Stigmatizing the Dies Committee asE
a tool of political opponents, Gov.
Frank Murphy, in a speech before a
capacity audience at the Masonic
Temple yesterday pledged himself to
fight for non-partisan administration,
of relief, re-organization of state:
government and expansion of public
health facilities if he secured re-elec-
tion.
His voice weak from the strain of
his campaign tour of the state, the
Governor warned the audience that
the people of the United States must,
before many years pass, "decide whe-
ther they want a democracy."
"When emotion rules us instead of
intelligence, suppression of liberties
results. We turn back the clock of
civilization. Luckily, so far this has not
been the ca rt
democracy not yield to the age-
old trend toward despotism."
"I was taught at the University
here that government stands for in-
tegrity, not for profit or spoils," he
declared. Terming the merit system
"government for all;," he promised to
continue to support it and told of the

Threatening to make Black Friday,I
Oct. 28th, the "bloodiest" in the
school's history, the class of '42 last
night distributed violent handbills
about camupus.
In huge black letters, the Freahmen,
not only stated their independence but
also laid down regulations for the
Sophomores. In pompous terms '41
was forbidden to sit on the campus
benches, warned to retire by sundown,
and what may have been a touch of

possibility of adding a retirement
system to its present scope.
Speaking of Prof. Joseph Hayden's
investigation of Michigan's govern-
ment, he said: "We have the greatest
reforms in mind. Professor Hayden is
at work on one now which will make
government effective and economical.
It will give it character and quality.
It will put democracy to work."
Comparing the Lansing labor holi-
day last year with the Star Theatre
riot which took place in Ann Arbor
when he was a student, Governor
Murphy explained, "Then thousands
of students gathered at the theatre.

Asks For Tolerance
To Save Democracy
By NORMAN ABBOTT SCHORR
Gov. Frank Murphy, '14, openly
struck out yesterday afternoon against
reactionary forces in the State that
have opposed his method of dealing
with the sit-down strikes, and would
have preferred "civil war to concilia-
tion." He called for an intelligent,
steadfast trust in reason, tolerance
and the defense of human rights,
which he said characterized democ-
racy.
President Ruthven introduced the
Governor and presided at the meeting
in the North Lounge of the Union,
which was sponsored by the Student
Senate. Dr. Ruthven was presented
by Thomas Adams, '40, president.
Other men on the speakers' platform
were Prof. Joseph A. Hayden of the
political science department, head of
the State government reform com-
mission, Lieut.-Gov. Leo Nowicki,
State Treasurer Theodore I Fry and
Mayor Walter C. Sadler of the engi-
neering school.
Addressing an audience of more
than 500, the Governor declared that
in his refusal to abuse the power
vested in him by "spilling blood and
taking lives" he has always been
guided by the principles of tolerance
and sanity that he learned while a
student here at the University.
"Whenever I come to Ann Arbor,"
Governor Murphy said, "I can't help
thinking of the debt I owe here-this
place of inspiration and all that it
did for me."
Earlier in the day, he called the
State appropriations for the Uni-
versity "the soundest investment pos-
sible." Spending money here on build-
ings and dormitories is for the good

Eastern Grads
IPromise Band
Financial sAid,
Taken with the sterling perform-
ance of marching and playing pre-
sented by the University of Michigan
Band at the Yale Bowl Saturday, the
Eastern Alumni Association has prom-
ised to grant the Band financial
assistance in order to insure a yearly
appearance in the East, Prof. William
D. Revelli, Director of the University
Bands, announced yesterday.
The form the aid will take and the
amount have as yet been undeter-
mined, but it is expected to'reach a
figure substantial enough to reduce
the strain on the Band members inci-
dent to their yearly drive for traveling
funds.
A. W. Kohler, president of the
Eastern Alumni, claimed that the
Band's appearance was the most fin-
ished and professional showing that
has been seen in the east by College
Bands in the past few years Ted
Husing, star sports broadcaster, has
called the Michigan Band the "cream
of all college bands-"
