Von Papen Talks With Minister Saracoglo
On Acceptance In 'European Order';
Bulgaria, Slovakia Expected To Enter
ANKARA, Turkey, Nov. 23.-(W)-German Ambassador Franz Von Papen
conferred with the Turkish foreign minister for nearly an hour tonight in
an interview in which the future of Turkey may have been decided.
The nature of the conversation Adolf Hitler's ace trouble-shooter had
with Foreign Minister Sukru Saracoglo was not disclosed, but it was pre-
sumed he delivered terms for Axis acceptance of Turkey in the projected
"new European order."
In an interview later with the official newspaper Ulus, Von Papen de-
nied he issued a statement in Berlin to the effect that Turkey should submit
to the new European order and that Russia is interested in naval bases on
the Persian Gulf. These'reports had been widely circulated in the Turkish
The German Embassy likewise declared without foundation reports that
Von Papen would fly back immediately to Berlin.
Saracoglo received Von Papen following audiences with the Greek and
British Ambassadors, who called separately.

directly, to refrain from attacking

SALONIKA, Greece, Nov. 23-(/P-
Greek troops, inspired by the fall of
Koritza, were reported today to have
split the retreating Italian Army in
two, driving a spearhead from the
Pindus Mountain sector straight
through the Fascist lines..
Military observers declared the
pursuit into Albania was so relentless
that the Italians were unable to form
a warfront for defense against fight-
ers of the nation they sought to in-
(The Greek Legation in Sofia, Bul-
garia, said it had been informed two
Italian divisions - about 24,000 men
- were surrounded south of Argiro-
castro, in the central Pindus sector.)
While the civilian population cel-
ebrated what was termed Greece's
greatest military victory since the
days of the ancients, the army -
fighting entirely on Albanian soil -
had started a three-pronged drive.
The Greek forces were drawing on
large stores of guns and equipment
captured in Koritza and it was re-
ported that Italian tanks manned by
Greek crews were being used in the
campaign in the north.
Officials here expressed the view
the recent victories give their forces
impressive strategic advantages. They
pointed out that, while Albania is
almost all mountainous, the river val-
leys - the only feasible travel routes
- run from the present Greek po-
sitions straight into the heart of Al-
bania and thence to the Adriatic.
In Koritza, the troops surrendered
the task of policing the city to 350,
gendarmes. Their instructions were
to restore civil life in the city to nor-1
mal as soon as possible.

Sellout Crowd Witnesses Power Display
Which Gives Buckeyes Their Worst
Drubbing Since 40-0 Setback In 1905;
Kriomer, 'Evy' Have Share In Scoring
By DON WIRTCHAFTER
(Special To The Daily)
COLUMBUS, OHIO, Nov. 23.-Michigan's thundering football forces
roared all over the Ohio Stadium today before winding up one of the greatest
years in Wolverine gridiron history.
With brilliant Tom Harmon leading the way, Michigan battered a com-
pletely demoralized Buckeye squad, 40-0, to carry off its seventh triumph of
In his final collegiate appearance, the Hoosier Hurricane treated a
sellout crowd of 73,648 spectators to a dazzling display of football, if there
ever was one.
All in all, he drove over the Ohio goal three times to smash Red Grange's
former Western Conference three-year touchdown record of 31, passed to
teammates for two of the other Wolverine tallies, place-kicked four points
after touchdowns, and maintained a punting average of 50 yards per kick.
Spark Behind Devastating Drive
If that were not enough, Harmon was the spark behind a devastating
Michigan drive that handed the battling Buckeyes their worst defeat since
1905 when the Wolverines trounced them, 40-0.
Michigan was an inspired football team today. It was alert, determined
and spirited. The Wolverines' complete superiority was never in doubt.
Even a steady autumn downpour failed to stop their merciless plun-
dering which netted two touchdowns in the first quarter, one in the second,
two in the third, and one in the fourth.
It was Michigan's battering, double-barreled attack that knocked the
Buckeyes' defenses into a state of dizziness. When Harmon wasn't smashing
off tackles or whirling around ends, Bullet Bob Westfall was crashing over
the cente: of an outclassed Ohio line.
Statistics clearly show how badly the Buckeyes were beaten this after-
noon. Michigan rolled up 22 first downs to Ohio's six. Wolverine backs
rambled over 299 yards of sloppy stadium turf through the rushing route
while the Buckeyes dented Michigan's adamant forward wall for only
In passing it was the same story. Harmon completed 11 out of 23
aerials for 148 yards while Don Scott, Francis Schmidt's heralded back-
field star, and substitute halfback Don Sexton found the mark on only four
out of 14 tosses for 33 yards.
'Shut The Gates Of Mercy'
Schmidt was handed a dose of his own medicine today. Nicknamed
'Shut the gates of mercy" because of his treatment of gridiron foes, the
Buckeye coach found the doors jammed closed when the powerful Wolver-
ines went into action.
It took Michigan 11 minutes to cross the Ohio goal line, but once Fritz
Crisler's battering rams hit pay-dirt, touchdowns followed with amazing
The first tally came on an 80 yard sustained drive. Westfall and Har-
mon alternated in tearing the Buckeye line to shreds before Terrible Tom
