Laval On Spot-Nazis Risk Revo

Casualties, Axis Pressure,
Food Shortage Blamed
For Anti-War Sentiment
LONDON, Sept. 28.-(P)-Increas-
ing anti-war sentiment in the Bal-
kans was reported by Allied govern-
ment sources tonight and a Yugoslav
official described conditions as simi-
lar to those in 1918 shortly before
the collapse of ,Bulgaria, Austria and
Hungary.
The reasons were listed as these:
1.) The lengthening death list on
the Eastern front. Rumania alone
was said to have lost more than 300,-
000 men in Russia and Germany was
reported demanding 50,000 additional.
2.) Decreasing food supplies.
3.) Increasing Axis pressure for
"closer'*collaboration."
"The Rumanians are particularly
bitter toward both Germany and
Hungary," a Fighting French source
said, "for the first time since the war
began the word 'pace' (peace) is seen
scrawled on pavements and buildings
throughout the country. Recently
several hundred men and women
were tried by court martial for un-
patriotic activities including sabotage.
"The majority of the people feel
that they have received nothing from
Germany except additional demands,
and they are bitter at Hungary be-
cause they were forced to yieldTran-
sylvania to her." '
In an effort to counter dissension
in Hungary, Germany recently gave
Hungary 200,000 acres of rich Serbian
agricultural lands, the Yugoslav gov-
ernment announced. The lands ad-
join Bachka province which previ-
ously had been ceded to Hungary.
The inhabitants of 62 villages were
evicted.
Hungary also was reported worried
by decreasing war goods production
because of the flight of workers to
the country after an air raid on Bud-
apest, the Leningrad radio said.,

Governor Asked
To Alter Clocks,
Bring Sunshine
Van Wagoner Stands Pat
On Federal Time Rules
Over Schools' Request
LANSING, Sept. 28- (P)- A num-
ber of school boards have written to
Governor Van Wagoner, asking him
to do something to take Michigan off
"war time," because the advanced
clocks will send their pupils to their
classes in the dark hours of the morn-
ing, the executive said today.
He said he has replied with sugges-
tions that the schools fall in line with
others which have changed their class
room starting times, to allow the pu-
pils an extra hour's sleep each morn-
ing.
Van Wagoner said he has not
changed his position that Michigan
must abide by the federal statute im-
posing war time. He vetoed in a spe-
cial session of the legislature last
winter a bill to exempt 'Michigan
from the fast time schedule.
He said he still is convinced that
"with 95 per cent, of manufacturing
industry in war production, we must
keep the war time schedule or we
would lose about four hours a day
contact between these plant manage-
ments and Washington."
YOU AIN'T JUST WHISTLIN' BUD
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 28. -(P)--
Douglas Mains, 72, a widower, and
Miss Ruth Staley, 21, applied for a
marriage license at city hall today.
Miss Staley told the clerk, "I know
he's old enough to be my grand-
father, but he's so kind-hearted he'll
do anything for me."
Mains added, "My secret ot getting
along with women is to let them
have their own way."

Candidates For Governor,
Senator Will Stump
State This Week
LANSING, Sept. 28-- ()- Repub-
lican and Democratic nominees for
state office held separate councils of
war here today, completing arrange-
ments to launch their campaign
stumping tours this week.
Harry F. Kelly, nominee for gov-
ernor, and Circuit Judge Homer Fer-
guson, nominee for U.S. Senator, will
hit the trail Thursday, addressing a
rally in Jackson that evening, one in
Traverse City Friday night, and will
be at Manistee Saturday noon.
Their travels will take them into
the Upper Peninsula next Monday,
Kelly to speak in Ironwood that
night, Ferguson in Calumet Monday
afternoon and Houghton Monday
night. The judge is to visit Iron
Mountain Tuesday afternoon and re-
join Kelly at Marquette Tuesday
night for a joint speaking engage-
ment.
They will attend a meeting of the
Upper Peninsula Development Bureau
in Munising Wednesday noon, and
travel together to Escanaba for a
night engagement, leaving in time to
appear jointly at a rally in Kalama-
zoo Thursday night.
Kelly said the tour would be made
by train and bus, to save tires.
The Democrats will travel this
week as two teams, one composed of
Governor Van Wagoner, Maurice E.
Eveland, nominee for secretary of
state, and John W. Babcock, nominee
for attorney general, the other com-
posed of U.S. Senator Prentiss M.
Brown, Lieut. Gov. Frank Murphy,
Leo J. Nowicki, nominee for auditor
general, and State Treasurer Theo-
dore I. Fry.
The Governor is to appear alone
Wednesday at presentation of the
Navy "E" award to the Eaton Man-
ufacturing Company, at Detroit; his
full "team" in Lenawee and Hills-
dale counties Thursday. The Gover-
nor will attend presentation of an-
other "E" to the Hayes industrial
plant at Jackson Friday and cam-
paign with his team in that city the
rest of the day.
The other Democratic, team, minus
Senator Brown, will visit Clinton and
Gratiot counties- Thursday, Midland
and. Bay. counties -Friday, and Iosco
and Alpena counties Saturday. Brown
is in Washington.
Van Wagoner; explaining as much
of the tour. would be made by train
and bus as possible, said specific

appearances in the counties listed
have not been arranged, pending a
study of public transportation sched-
ules.
The declaration in Detroit of Ger-
ald L. K. Smith, defeated candidate
for the Republican nomination for
U.S. Senator, that he might run as a
sticker candidate against Ferguson,
caused little commotion in the capi-
tol, although John R. Dethmers, Re-
publican state chairman, said such an
action by Smith would "confirm the
suspicion. .. that he was in the Re-
publican contest for the sole purpose
of bringing about the reelection of
Senator Prentiss M. Brown."
The Republican aspirants them-
selves expressed little concern but
Governor Van Wagoner said of Deth-
mers' statement, "I'll tell you right
now, I hope Smith does not run. We
have had nothing to do with his polit-
ical plans and don't intend to."
WILLKIE LEAVES FOR CHINA

BERN, Switzerland, Sept. 28.-(P)
-Pierre Laval gave the Germans
the choice today of keeping him in
office or risking revolt in France over
compulsory labor conscription, reli-
able advices from Paris said tonight.
Informed observers believed Laval
had a good chance of winning his
point with a plea that public reaction
must be considered but they were un-
certain of the final outcome of the
arrest of some 300 Americans by the
Germans in the occupied zone, pre-
sumably as hostages for future ex-
change.
Official American quarters still
lacked formal information on what
was going on in occupied France. The
seizure of the Americans, most of
them in Paris, caused no surprise be-
cause those in the occupied zone were
liable to internment as enemy aliens.
The situation served with other
factors, including U.S. endorsement
of the British occupation of Mada-
gascar, to intensify the acute status
of American-French relations. But
Laval's apparent stiffening on the
labor program, it, was pointed out,
could be an important factor in
avoiding a rupture.
By his current stand against com-
pulsory conscription to raise 120,000
workers in three' weeks for Hitler,
Laval had not necessarily changed his
perennial white tie for one of red,
white and blue.
He appeared simply to be giving a
prudent ear to rising popular indig-

nation. Whether he had gotten any
comfort from the Nazis in current
Paris negotiations remained to be
seen.
Laval's troubles multiplied during
a week-end in which he ousted
Jacques Benoist-Mechin, Secretary of
State in his foreign ministry, for
plotting to replace Laval as chief of
government by the more rabid Pro-
Nazi, Jacques Doriot.
The Swiss Journal De Geneve said
in a resume of Laval's predicament
that the French people "were stricken
by defeat but their vitality again is
appearing."
"After more than two years of res-
ignation and sacrifices accepted si-
lently," the newspaper said, "they
seek to see clearly and ask where they
are being led.
Laval's Paris appearance in the

I

Paris newspaper circles disclosed
the basi issue: the Germans wanted
to apply their own labor conscription
decree in occupied areas, similar to
that which permits them to command
Belgian and Dutch labor.
U.S. MERCHANTMAN SUNK
WASHINGTON, Sept. 28- ()-
The Navy 'announced today that a
small United States merchant vessel
was torpedoed and sunk by an enemy
submarine in the North Atlantic
about the middle of September. Sur-
vivors were landed at an East Coast
port.

role of a French patriot today stem-
med from a dispute over application
of the compulsory labor law and the
efforts of his erstwhile trusted col-
laborationists.
