Turkey Will Resist Axis:
Greek Defenses Ready;
lVazis Raid England
(By The Associated Press)
The German army rolled into Bucharest, Rumania, yesterday with
Swastika banners flying and bands playing Deutschland Uber Alles and
the Nazi rallying hymn, the Horst Wessel song.
By nightfall the capital had the appearance of a city dominated by an
invading army, save that in this case the Nazi troops under two generals
and other officers who wore the red-striped trousers of the general staff,
were in Rumania ostensibly to instruct the Rumanian army and to protect
the country's precious oil fields.
The British still remaining in the city hurried their packing, pre-ared
to leave as quickly they could as British-Rumanian relations becamne more
Turkey. non-belligerent ally of Britain, already has pointed to "two
million bayonets" with which, she said, she will bar any Axis march to Egypt.
A high authority tonight announced that the Greek army is mobilized
and that this country-like Turkey-is ready to fight if anyone pulls the
trigger by an invasion.
Vastly concerned at the implications of Germany's march into Bucha-
rest, in the heart of the Balkans, this authority said Greek forces were being
strengthened on the Albanian frontier where Italian forces, already esti-
mated to number 120,000 to 150,000, are being gradually increased.
Bulgaria looked to her own borders.
In Western Europe the war carried on with no change in its dreary
violence: The Nazi Luftwaffe made five daylight attacks on London and
the Kent and Sussex areas, and returned after nightfall to spread further
ruin and distress.
The Royal Air Rorce engaged them throughout the day and at night
began its own offensive, operating in Germany and with particular vigor
along the French, Belgian and Dutch coasts.
German torpedo boats based on the Channel coast, presumably at Cher-
bourg, sallied out to give battle to British light naval forces, but the results
of the engagement were not made known.
In England, at least three persons were killed and many injured when
an express train was derailed after an explosion. ,
One German soldier and several civilians were among the dead andl
wounded in Berlin, official sources said. Damage was reported slight.
One famous London square was-
blasted by a Nazi bomb, killing sev-
eral persons and inflicting heavy State
property damage. Ten areas in Lon-
don were raided in bright moonlightCl i

Total Defense
Is Promised
By Roosevelt
President Pledges Naval
And Air Might Of U.S.
For Hemisphere Unity
DAYTON, 0., Oct. 12.-P)-Pres-
ident Roosevelt enunciated a policy
of total defense of the Americas
against a tot-al attack -from any seg-
ment of the world tonight andj
pledged the United States Navy and
Air Force to the defense of all the
Western Hemisphere.
The President's address, one of his
most momentous declarations on in-
ternational conditions and foreign
policy, was broadcast to every nation
of the Hemisphere.
He said that this country, as in
1798, insists on the peaceful use oft
the Atlantic and Pacific for trade
and commerce. He said the American
nations were united in their deter-
mination to resist the threats of dic-
tators and rejected the doctrine of
He renewed assurances that Britain
would receive all aid short of war.
He voiced confidence in the ability
of the Americas, bound together in
the spirit of Good Neighbors, to re-
sist infiltration of "alien political.
and economic ideas which would de-
stroy our freedom and democracy."
"When we speak of defending, this
Western Hemisphere," Mr. Roosevelt
declared, "we are speaking not only
of the territory of North, Central and
South America and the immediately
adjacent islands. We include the
right to the peaceful use of the At-
lantic and Pacific oceans. That has
been our traditional policy."
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch in
1936 announced in a Sunday editorial
its support of the President for a
third term.

fHarmon, Kromer Score'
As Varsity Rolls Up
15 First Downs
(Special To The Daily)
CAMBRIDGE, MASS., Oct. 12. -- Mighty Michigan kept its powerful
gridiron wheels rolling down victory trail here this afternooh before 30,000
spectators in historic Harvard Stadium. The Wolverines, with All-American
Tom Harmon once again in the driver's seat, overpowered a gallant band
of Crimson from Harvard University, 26-0.
In adding its third and final chapter to a triumph-studded tour across
the nation, Fritz Crisler's crew found little in the way of opposition from
tha undermanned Crimson warriors today.
From beginning to end the Wolverines had things their own way and
the final score was just as large as they cared to make it. After Michigan
had tallied its fourth touchdown with two minutes played in the final period,
Crisler removed his first team and used nothing but substitutes from there
until the gun barked finish.
All told, the Maize and Blue clad gridmen charged and passed for 15£
first downs while their Crimson opponents were held to five, two of which
came against the Wolverine third team in the dying moments of the game.1
From scrimmage the Wolverines galloped over 22,0 yards of Massachu-
setts' green grass while the lads from Harvard were stopped at 97.
Michigan did everything better than the loyal Crimson sons today,1
everything including lost yardage through penalties. Officials had a field
day during the struggle, calling back Michigan 14 times in all for offside,
backfield in motion, holding, clipping, and substitute communication penal-
ties for a net loss of 110 yards.
But the Wolverines could afford to lose yardage that way this after-
noon, for their super-charged offense was at its best, and that was muchZ
too good for the Crimson.
Critical Eastern spectators, trying desperately to find some flaw in
Michigan's sensational halfback Harmon, threw up their hands when he
galloped off the playing field shortly after the fourth period got under way, I
and acclaimed him a true "gridiron great". There was no further debatingc
necessary after Harmon's superb exhibition today on Harvard turf.
In a way that's all his own, the Hoosier Hammer stole the whole show.
He crashed through the valiant Harvard defense for touchdowns on three
occasions. Once in each of the first
three periods. And in the final quar-
D ykstra Takes ter he completed the rout by pitch-
ing a beautiful touchdown pag to
Post As Head teammate Paul Kromer from the ten-r
yard marker.
All in all, Harmon was good for 20t
