Russo -wTurkey
Military Pact
Seen If Nazis
Advance South
Move Against Dardanelles
Feared As Red Troops
Line Ruinanain Borders
German Planes Mass
Near Soviet Frontier
SOFIA, Bulgaria, Oct. 15.-()-
Bulgarian friends of Soviet Russia
claimed tonight to have information
that Russia and Turkey are nego-
tiating a military assistance pact.
The government in Moscow ac-
cording to these sources, is willing
to promise Turkey armed support if
Germany and Italymshould develop
a rumored plan to seize the Dar-
danelles.
The informants asserted they had
been assured by "high Communists"
that negotiations were under way
between Moscow and Ankara and
"have every chance of success."
Russia's reported concentration of
troops along the Rumanian border,
understood here to have been in
progress even before the German
"instruction division" was sent to
the Black Sea, was described by pro-
Soviet observers as a possible fore-
runner of a Turkish-Soviet agree-
ment.
Such a military understanding
would of course increase the risk of
a Russian conflict with the Axis-a
conflict which the Soviet heretofore
has tried to avoid-but it is claimed
here that a current lack of warmth
dence that Moscow is considering
shifting position.
The Bulgarian government, at'
pains to stay friendly with both the
Axis and Russia, is reported adamant
in rejecting Axis suggestions that'
300,000g to400,000 men be mobilized
as a gesture against Turkey and
Greece.
Russia Sees Nazis Mass
BUCHAREST, Oct. 15.-(P)-
Paced by thickly-packed formationst
of German fighter and bomber
planes, 300 Nazi tanks lumbered to-
day into Rumania's important Dan-
ube port of Galati, opposite the
Russian frontier where the Red army
has mobilized between 150,000 and
180,000 men.
Arrival of the military reinforce-
ments carme as the Germansrushed
to remove 90,000 of their nationals
from Soviet-occupied Bessarabia as
a result of Moscow's refusal to ex-
tend the Nov. 15 deadline -for them
to get out.
(The Kremlin, through its official
news agency, Tass, declared today it
had not received satisfactory ad-
vance information concerning Ger-
many's plans to send troops into Ru-
mania, despite a German statement
of Oct. 10 that powers friendly to
the Axis had been notified Nazi
forces had arrived and that more
were to follow.

Hope Of Opera
Revival Noted
In Registration
An encouraging first day's regis-
tration of 61 persons interested in
participating in a Mimes Union
Opera has revived the hopes of many
that the campus will witness a 1941
edition of the shows that made Mich-
igan famous back in the "golden
twenties."
A number of the registrants are
veterans of last year's production,
"Four Out of Five." The 'misfit
fifth,' Bob Titus, '42; Jimmy Neilson,
'41, of the team of Silcott and Neil-
son; novelty tap dancer, Dick Strain,
'42; "Master of Ceremonies," Jerry
Brenner, '42E; and Art Treut, '41A,
the "sorority girl" of last year's
Opera, have already registered.
However, there is still plenty of
room for many more, as any rebirth
of the Opera depends on the num-
ber who register between 3 p.m. and
5 p.m. and between 7 p.m. and 9
p.m. today and tomorrow in the
Union Lobby.

Each Comnunity Naies
Draft Places, Officials;
To Begin Task At 8 A.M.
Eleven Questions
To Be Answered
WASHINGTON, Oct. 15. -(p)-
The nation's young men will place
themselves at their country's call for
military training tomorrow in the
first drat registration ever conduct-
ed with America at peace.
In every community the men, some
16,500,000 strong, will go to desig-
nated registration places, answer a
series of eleven questions, sign their
names and await the results of a gi-
gantic lottery that will determine
which of them must spend a year in
military camps. All men between 21
and 35, inclusive, must register.
The registration places-precinct
voting headquarters, schools, and
other buildings designated by the
local authorities-will open at 7 a.n
local time. At 8 a.m., EST., Presi-
dent Roosevelt will make a radio ad-
dress on the draft. At 9 p.m., local
time, the registration places will
close, unless there are men still wait-
ing in line. All waiting at that hour
will be registered if it takes until
morning.
National Headquarters Quiet
With a gigantic task of organiza-
tion accomplished, national draft
headquarters here probably was the
quietest spot connected with conscrip-
tion today, a condition which officials
expected would continue through to-
morrow. Precautions against every
foreseeable hitch had been taken.
During the day, headquarters an-
nounced local draft boards had been
appointed and approved for 38 states
and the District of Columbia. From
time to time statements were issued
on various phases of registration, in-
cluding an announcement that all
aliens, except those connected with
foreign diplomatic and consular
staffs, must register if they are with-
in the specified draft ages.
Senate Confirms Appointment
The day also saw the Senate con-
firm unanimously the appointment
of Clarence A. Dykstra, president of
the University of Wisconsin, as the
national director of selective service.
The action had been delayed by the
objection yesterday of Senator Holt
(Dem.-W.Va.), an opponent of con-
scription and of the administration's
foreign policy.
For the big registration job, an
army of about a million officials was
mobilized at the registration places.
As each man presents himself, he
will be asked (1) his name, (2) his
address, (3) telephone number, (4)
age, (5) place of birth, (6) country
of citizenship, (7) the name of a per-
son who will always know his ad-
dress, (8) his relationship to the lat-
ter, (9) the address of the latter,
(10) his employer's name, and (11)
his place of employment.
A four by six-inch filing card, up-
on which his answers have been en-
tered, will be handed. him for his
signature, and that is all that each
will be called upon to do tomorrow,
Rebekah, I.O.O.F.
To Install Officers
More than 2,000 delegates of Re-
bekah Assembly and the Independent
Order of Odd Fellows will bring their
annual convention to a close here
today with a series of events climaxed
by the installation of the new assem-
bly officers 3:30 p.m. in the Rack-

ham Building

FormerMinister Thomas, Ex-Editor
Vandenberg, To Give Forum Talks'

'A former minister from Princeton
and an ex-newspaper editor who
once was a Michigan law student
will be the main speakers at the
second and third meetings of the
Michigan Forum tomorrow and Sun-
day afternoons, respectively, in the
Michigan Union.
Norman Thomas, socialist candi-
date for president, is the former
clergyman, and Senator Arthur H.
Vandenberg of Michigan the former
journalist.
Now in diametrically opposite poli-
tical parties, both Thomas and Van-
denberg have experienced long and
colorful careers.
After graduating from Princeton
University in 1905, Thomas spent six
years at Union Theological Seminary,
matriciating in 1911. That same

Thomas headed his party's ticket
in '32 and '36 and was unanimously
renominated as presidential candidate
in the April convention this spring.
He is the author of a number of books,
including "America's Way Out-a
Program for Democracy," "As I See
It," "Human Exploitation," and "War
-No Profit, No Need, No Glory."
Like Thomas, Vandenberg is also
the author of several books dealing
with political and social thought. Van-
denberg, however, has used the medi-
um of the historical approach to ex-
press his convictions, writing a biog-
raphy, "Alexander Hamilton, the
Greatest American" and later "If
Hamilton Were Here Today.'
However, Vandenberg started writ-
ing a long time before the decade of
the twenties. Strange as it may seem
