(By The Associated Press)
LISBON, Portugal, Oct. 24 - The
exiled former King Carol of Rumania,
detained in Seville, Spain, with Red-
haired Mme. Magda Lupescu, sought
today through a faithful follower to
put himself under the "protection" of
President Roosevelt.
Jean Pangal, one time Rumanian
minister to Lisbon and now the har-
assed ex-monarch's personal repre-
sentative, asked Warden M. Wilson,
the United States Charge D'Affaires
here, to appeal to Mr. Roosevelt for
help in Carol's behalf.
Specifically requested was the Pres-
ident's intercession to induce the
Spanish authorities to allow Carol,
Madame Lupescu and his former Pal-
ace Minister, Erst Urdareanu, to
come to Portugal. They have been
promised asylum here and Carol,
in turn, has pledged himself to remain
here throughout the war and to re-
frain from all political activity.
The American legation was study-
eing the request.

BERN, Switzerland, Ot. 24 - Mar-

hero of Verdun when Adolph Hitler
was a corporal, met the German

operation with his German and Ital-
iam conquerors in their war against
his former Ally, Britain.
Reports reaching Switzerland said
the white-haired Chief of State of
France left Vichy, the little provin-
cial watering place that is serving,
this conquered nation as a capital,

the same type the Marshal wore when
he defended Verdun in the World

the Axis in the war, diplomatic
sources said, Petain's principal com-
pensation and that of his Vichy
Government, will beto carrythe tri-
color back to Paris, the center of the
world in every Frenchman's heart.
British Bombers
Cruise Over Berlin
LONDON, Oct. 24 - Heavy Brit-
ish bombers cruised over Berlin for
two hours early today, pounding
electric plants, railway yards and oth-
er targets in their 22nd foray against
the German capital, the Air Ministry
announced tonight.
The pilots said they flew squarely
through a great Anti-Aircraft bar-
rage and dodged grouped searchlights
to bomb such objectives as:
The Berliner and Klingenberg Elec-
tric plants;
Rail facilities at Tempelhif Air-
drome, the Lehrte Station, Terminal
for Hamburg and Bremen, the Pulitz
Strasse Station and the Charlotten-
burg power station.

Present Revue
Lifelike puppets, sophisticated lyr-
ics, original music-these are the
elements that distinguish the Yale
Puppeteers' shows from the run-of-
the-mill marionette shows.
Their revue, to be presented here
at 8:30 p.m. tonight and tomorrow in
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, 'dis-
cards the usual attempts to main-
tain an illusion of reality as the pup-
peteers cast aside the curtains and
permit the audience to share in the
fun of the production techniques.
An innovation on this, their 12th
and last tour, is the tabloid musical
comedy, "My Man Friday," an adap-
tation of the Defoe masterpiece, "Rob-
inson Crusoe."
Included also in this performance
called "It's A Small World" will be
the usual lampooning of celebrities,
although because of the seriousness of
world events, they have tended to
stay away from caricatures.
Michigan graduates, librettist For-
man Brown, '22, and puppet designer
Harry Burnett, '23, adopted the "Yale"
part of their title because Brown spent
some time in the Yale workshop. He

G.O.P. Candidate Calls
Record 'Reactionary"
In Address At Akron
For Labor Peace
AKRON, O., Oct. 24 - (P) - Wen-
del L. Willkie tonight described the
New Deal concept of collective bar-
gaining as "reactionary" and said he
wanted to "put an end to this era of
bad feeling" between labor and in-
Returning to the city where he
practiced law 11 years ago, the Re-
publican presidential nominee de-
clared in a prepared address that "the
true purpose of collective barganing
is to achieve a coordination of effort
by the American people and coordi-
nation between them."
New Deal Caused Trouble
"The New Deal has created bad1
blood between certain groups in in-
dustry and certain groups in labor,"
he said. "With the help of the leaders,
both of labor and of industry, I want
to put an end to this era of bad
I want to unify the spirit of Amer-
ica. With the help of both, we can.
not fail."
Willkie came here for three evening
meetings after asserting in a national
broadcast at noon that the New Deal
had written a record of "broken
promises and failures of performance
so staggering as to shock the faith
of the American people."
That address, from his private rail-
road car on a siding at Harbor Creek,
Pa., was in reply to President Roose-
velt's Philadelphia speech.
In his talk prepared for an audi-
ence at Goodyear Hall tonight, Will-
kie asserted that there could be no
growing national economy "except by
understanding and cooperation be-
tween labor and management.
Collective bargaining as conceived
by the New Deal is not true collec-
tive bargaining. The New Deal is a
reactionary concept.
Collective Bargaining Necessary
Only through collective bargaining
"in its broadest sense," Willie assert-
ed, can the nation "keep faith with
the half million young Americans who
enter the mature life of America
each year."
He reiterated that he wanted to
keep already-achieved social gains,
and said:
"We intend to put the whole pow-
er of government behind a drive to
abolish the slums of our great cities
and to give decent housing to all our
people both in the cities and on the
"America should be a land where
there is no wrong side of the rail-
road tracks, and we will make it just
"The New Deal's method of keep-
ing faith with these young people,"
he said, "is to treat them as problem
children whose only hope is a Govern-
ment hand-out."

Grid Chances
Against Penn
With Michigan's football team
proven a fighting outfit with cham-
pionship possibilities, student inter-
est in tomorrow's game with the
powerful, high-scoring Pennsylvania
eleven is approaching fever pitch.
Football is the favorite topic of
conversation on the campus this
week, and the Penn game is the
favorite subtopic. Even the war and
political campaigns have been driven
into weak, barely held, second and
third positions in student opinion.
Students have faith in the Wolver-
ine football machine, now that its
records displays impressive victories
over Michigan State and Illinois,
both teams which were rated "good."
Penn, they apparently believe, will
prove to be another "big shot" vic-
tim for the Varsity.
Sure Michigan Will Win
Louisa Penny, '41, is sure the Wol-
verines will be victorious over the
Quaker squad. "But," she commented
yesterday afternoon, "it's going to be
a struggle. Harmon and Reagan?
That meeting will produce another
struggle, with Harmon getting the
better of it the way an All-American
Though Prof. Arno Bader of the
English department has little time
for football, he has kept in fair ty
close touch with sports writers' prog-
nostications regarding the coming
battle. "Prospect leaves me breath-
less," he said.
"We're going to see a top-notch
game of football Sunday afternoon,"
Frank Pecott, '41 predicted. "The
Harmon-Reagan duel should be won-
derful to see, and the lines are even-
ly matched, apparently.
Biggest Thriller Expected
It should be the biggest thriller
of the year, with plenty of scoring
and close ending. Penn is good, so
we are certain that the game will
be no walkaway. The game won't
top the 1939 Ohio State battle,
"Although this should be one of
the better games of the season, it
won't produce any big score," Don
Schmidt, '43, disagreed. "Penn, I be-
lieve, has played pushover teams and
is highly over-publicized, but Rea-
gan is the best back of the East and
should go well even against Michigan.
Tom Harmon will outshine him, with
the rest of the Varsity functioning
the way they have shown they can.
The women's angle was brought
out by Florence Turin, '44, who said:
"It should be a swell game if it
doesn't rain. And even though this
Reagan fellow may be better look-
ing than Harmon, Tom is a much
better ball player. We're going to

Slosson Discusses
WASHINGTON, Oct. 24. -(n-
Against foreign propagandists whom
he accused of seeking "to divide us
with their strategy of terror" Presi-
dent Roosevelt today hurled Abra-
ham Lincoln's declaration of a faith
that "right makes might."
While the Civil War president's
statement of faith gives the American
answer to these propagandists, Mr.
Roosevelt said in a radio address, the
nation is not neglecting its might.
Rather, he asserted, it is arming to
defend the Americas and the oceans
serving as their highways.
The President, closing the New
York Herald Tribune's forum on "Sav-
ing Democracy," spoke from the diplo-
matic reception room of the White
"Despising Democracy and not
knowing our strength," he declared,
"those who have destroyed other free
peoples deem the United States an
'effete, degenerate democracy.'
Now (Preparing For Defense
"At first we dismissed this con-
tempt with our traditional spirit of
good humor. We are now replying to
it in characteristically American
"We are preparing for the defense
of the two American continents, and
of the oceans that are the highways of
those continents. And we are doing
so in a mood of determination, but
unafraid and resolute in our will to
Foreign propagandists, the Chief
Executive said, seem to believe that
"if they tell us often enough that
democracy is outworn and that we
are decadent, we will begin to believe
it ourselves and we will immediately,
obediently proceed to decay."
They believe, also, he said, that we
are not match for a dictatorship in
which uniformity is compulsory, each
man lives in terror of his neighbor,
and the dominant atmosphere is that
of the concentration camp.
Hitler Effect Seen
In National Politics
If it were not for Hitler and the
present world situation, neither Pres-
ident Roosevelt nor Wendell Willkie
would have been nominated by their
respective parties, declared Prof.
Preston W. Slosson of the history de-
partment, last night in the opening of
six lectures on current events before
an audience of about 500 in the
Rackham Building.
"I think President Roosevelt will
be reelected," the Professor stated,
also expressing the opinion that it
would probably be a close race, de-
pending on the electoral vote of the
state of New York.
The lecture, sponsored by the Ann
Arbor branch of the American Asso-
ciation of University Women, was a
survey of the present situations on
the Western Front, in the Balkans,
in the Mediterranean and in the
Far East.
The next lecture, to be given Nov.
13, will deal with world events as
they have happened since the time of
last night's lecture.

Prof. Arthur Boak, chairman of the
history department, has been appoint-
ed to succeed the late Prof. Arthur
Lyon Cross as the Richard Hudson

Established in 1916 to the memory
of Dr. Richard Hudson, professor
of history and dean of the department
