the fate of southeastern Europe in

Foreign Minister Sukru Saracoglu,
returning from Moscow after three

for a Turkish-Soviet Russian pact,
made a report to President Ismet In-

Saracoglu gave them, unofficial

ported to have caused the breakdown
of negotiations.
Soviet To Keep Eye
On Turkish Dardanelles
Moscow, Oct. 21.-()-Ominous
rumblings against Turkey and her
new mutual assistance pact with
Great Britain and France were heard
today in the German and Russian
capitals, with Germans generally ex-
pressing belief that Russia had de-
cided to deal roughly with the Turks.
Russia served notice today as "the
greatest Black Sea Power" she "must

"The Soviet Union, which is the

Izvestia said.
The newspaper said the pact with
the allies "drew Turkey into the orbit
of war" and attempted to "draw the
U.S.S.R. into a combination which
is chiefly directed against Germany
and eventual enemies of England and
France in the Mediterranean (pre-

Freshman Bashfulness
Foils Plans For Dinner
That old villain bashfulness is foil-
ing the plans of a housemother in the
new West Quadrangle mens' dormi-
tories to arrange for an exchange
dinner with Mosher-Jordan.
The housemother complains that]
all the boys want to go to Mosher-
Jordan; none want to remain as hosts
in their own dining halls. The fresh-
men claim, according to the house-
mother, that "you can always get by
with seven women, but imagine en-
tertaining a girl at a table with sev-
en other men."

Gold Reduction
Vandenberg Asks Control
Over Metal Purchases
WASHINGTON, Oct. 21.-()-
Senator Vandenberg (Rep., Mich.)
said today he had suggested to Sec-
retary Morgenthau that the treasury
curtail purchases of gold, repricing
the metal at a lower level at least
for the duration of the European war.
Vandenberg read to the Senate a
letter he had written to Morgenthau
in whch he declared that the pro-
posed "cash and carry" sale of war
materials to belligerents might bring
"dangerous repercussions" on this
country's fiscal system.
Such sales, Vandenberg said, would
be almost sure to cause the "dump-
ing" of foreign securities on Ameri-
can markets by nations seeking cash.
In addition, he said the effort to ac-
quire cash might be "an ultimate in-
flux of all the remaining gold in
the world" into this country.
"If we invite the further inflow
of gold to the exent that we wholly
monopolize it, we will create a situa-
tion which will defeat the utlimate

hope of remonitizing gold in world
trade," Vandenberg declared.

To Halt Debate

On Neutrality Next Week
WASHINGTON, Oct. 21.--()-
Vice-President Garner, impatient over
long-drawn-out speechmaking on the
administration neutrality bill, was
reported today to be exerting his in-
fluence to secure a final vote next
Friends said that Garner, who has
given wholehearted support to Presi-
dent Roosevelt's recommendation that
the arms embargo be repealed, be-
lieved that the three weeks of de-
bate had been ample and that oppo-
sition senators now should accept
a limitation on future debate.
The Vice-President advised ma-
jority leader Barkley (Dem., Ky.) it
was said, to ask the Senate to agree
to a restriction on debate. If that
is not accepted, Garner was quoted

as saying, then the leadership should
call the Senate into session at 10

The game, which by the way was won by Michigan, 85 to 0, was more like

fourth marched up the field and down again and nothing stopped them
but the goal line.
Every time, with the exception of three, that the Wolverines gained
possession of the ball they scored. Twice they quick-kicked on the first
down, and the other time they lost the ball on downs.

Rake And Canvass
To Be Antiquated
By New Invention
Rolling up leaves in canvas may
soon be a thing of the past on the
University campus, if a mechanical
sweeper-upper tried out yesterday
proves successful.
Sounding the eteath knell of the
old rake and sheet method is a nw
vacuum sweeper invented by Ernest
M. Maddux, Ypsilanti street com-
missioner. The sweeper, which works
on a principle similar to the ordinary
household vacuum cleaner, is pulled
across the lawn behind a truck, into
which the leaves are swept by the
strong air blast generated by the
motor-driven fan.r
The machine was first used about
a year ago, and has been slightly
altered within the last two weeks by
Maddox. The giant sweeper was

day to a group of city and University

The third quarter was compara-

Then Crisler called it a day for the

Mutual Assistance Pact With Turkey
Called Victory For Western Powers,

The mutual assistance pact signed
Thursday by Great Britain, France
and Turkey may be regarded as the
first diplomatic victory of the wes-
tern powers in the present war, Prof.
Howard M. Ehrmann of the history
department commented yesterday.
This agreement is of value to the
western European signatories, Pro-
fessor Ehrmann observed, in that it
provides for the armed intervention
nf Turkey in behalf of England and

Professor Ehrmann said. Under no
circumstances, however, he added, is
Turkey to be forced to take up
arms against Soviet Russia.
Moreover, in case England and
France become involved in war with
a European power (outside the Medi-
terranean area and apart from their
agreements with Greece and Ruma-
nia), the three signatories are bound
to "consult," and Turkey is to as-
sume an attitude of at least benevo-

pansion in the Balkans, and can give
valuable assistance to the western
powers by keeping the Dardanelles
open to the British and French navies.
Russian aims in the Balkans also
have been temporarily checked by
the treaty. One of the most impor-
tant or these aims is to wrest Bessa-
rabia from Rumania, an action which
now would bind Turkey, at least, to
benevolent neutrality toward Great
Britain and France in their efforts to
