In its report from Transylvania
(half Hungarian in population, ac-
cording to Budapest) the semi-offi-
cial Hungarian news agency spoke
of urgently needed protection for
Magyars. Thousands of Hungarian-
born Rumanian soldiers in Transyl-
vania are refusing to fight for Ru-
mania, the dispatches added, and
the number of deserters was growing

It was no secret here that the
Russian army's overstepping of the
line of demarcation fixed in the Mos-
cow ultimatum to Rumania is caus-
ing considerable worry for Hungar-
ian officials as well as their German
and Italian friends.
In official circles it has long been
emphasized that Hungary would be
forced to seize the Carpathian Moun-
tain barrier in Transylvania for "self
protection" should the Red Army per-
sist in advancing towards the Danube
Basin. Support of the Rome-Berlin
,xis was claimed in this plan.

tack, it said the Hungarian raid
started at 10:55 p.m. Sunday and
lasted until 1 a.m. Monday.
A number of frontier outposts were
attacked with rifles, machine guns
and even artillery, the report said,
and there were a number of casual-
ties on both sides.
IDuring the same hours the Bul-
garians were said to have attacked
three Rumanian posts on the Do-
bruja frontier, where a number of
casualties resulted.
The German bombing planes
reached Brasov a few hours after
the Rumanian Cabinet had thrown
out the old British guarantees of
Rumanian territorial integrity and
decided that Rumania henceforth
must follow "the new orientations
of Europe." Some diplomatic quar-
ters interpreted this as strengthen-
ing the possibility that King Carol
now has a good chance of getting
German guarantees against further
Soviet encroachments.

pose we find so devastating in Ger-
many today."
Between 1871 and 1914 Germany
had grown tremendously in political
power, but had not, as the World War
<hwed, reached the point where it
could dominate Europe, because the
other powers were ready and able to
defeat such desires for hegemony.
Dealt Harshly
In the Versailles Treaty Germany
was dealt with harshly in economic
terms, but territorially she was treat-
ed rather gently. The real criticism
of the Treaty of Versailles, he said,
was not that it was too severe, but
rather that it could not enlist the;
support of a majority of great powers.
The United States would have no
part of it; Japan only wanted to ful-
fill her interest in the Far East;
Russia did not enter the negotiations;
Italy was not satisfied colonially;
England regarded it as a temporary,
device which could be revised in order
to bring Germany back into the fam-,
ily of nations at some future date..
France was the one nation in Eur-
ope that believed in the Versailles
Treaty. Professor Ehrmann pointed
out that the French believed their
national existence depended on the1
continuance in force of the Treaty.
Thus France was the only European
nation ready to support its decrees.
Meanwhile, the many small states
which had grown out of the War did
not have the power independently to
sustain themselves, and they looked
toward single great powers or groups
of powers to aid them. France, as
a part of her scheme of national de-
fense, protected the small states to
the east of Germany, between Ger-
many and Russia.

could deal and could perhaps bring
about a peaceful Europe; therefore,
she refused to aid France in her
^ampaign of repression. He declared
his disbelief in the theory that had
the Weimar Republic continued inF
power the course of hisory would
have been substantially altered, for
he said that the same national inter-
ests would have forced Germans into
occupation of Austria and extension
of their influence in Central Europe.
Allowed To Learn
In 1935 Hitler was allowed to re-
arm Germany. Italy was lost to the
French when she decided upon col-
onial expansion at the expense of
safety on the Brenner Pass. When
Germany occupied the Rhineland in
1936, Britain felt she was only re-
suming her old rights. But this re-
occupation meant the end of French
influence with the small nations of
the east, for this influence was de-
pendent upon her ability to invade
Germany from the west, should Ger-
many move in the east.
There was a possibility, Professor
EhrmAnn pointed out, of hope for
the small European states if France
could conclude an alliance with Rus-

Bolshevists. When Germany moved
against Austria in 1938, Italy had
been won over by promises of colon-
ial gain from cooperation with the
Reich. With the addition of Austria,
Germany was in a position to en-
circle the Czechoslovakian flank. This
left Poland as France's one bastion
in eastern Europe. England became
alarmed when Hitler started moving
against Poland. The only way that
England and France could enforce
their guarantees to Poland was
through the cooperation of Russia.
The Russians, however, had terri-
torial desires in the Baltic which
England refused to foster, and thus
Russia would not aid the Allies. This
left Germany in a position to wage
war against the Allies without fear
of attack from the rear.

tional classifications and merely eru-1
dlite prestige values if the study of
American literary history is to aid
us in achieving and maintaining a
real culture at a period when the
European world seems to be dissolv-
ing like the fragments of a dream."
At first glance American literature
seems to offer a simple exercise in
intellectual history, but this appear-
ance is wholly specious, Professor
Jones claimed. It involves no devel-
opment in language, it is continuous,
its general frame of reference is the
history of English literature, its doc-
uments are easily available and, what
is nore, Professor Jones said, the
first two centuries are confined to
colonial and provincial literature,
while only for a century and a half
have we had a national letters.
It is there, however, that the error
lies, he pointed outThereasoning
that to be a colonial is to be paro-
chial and to be parochial is to be
simple, and therefore American lit-
erature of the colonial period is with-
out real pertinence to the cultural

history of a vast industrial nation,
he deemed erroneous.
Though colonial life may have been
,simple, colonial literature was not
therefore simple, Professor Jones
tlaimed. The colonial settler had to
begin all over again, he stated, but
the colonial writer did not; the set-
tled ways of an English style did not
have to be abandoned on the fron-
tier. Far from being simplified, he
brought out, colonial literature pre-
sents the inquirer with a complex
problem of points of reference.
Professor Jones referred to the
problem of American letters as. a
whole as one of confusion, having no
agreement or principle of intellectual
order and many attempts at analysis
with conflicting premises, naive
methodology, cloudy aims and more
bias than scholarship.

N.Y.A. Aids Michigan Students
By Providing Part-Time Work

LANSING, June 19.-More than
24,675 of Michigan's high school and
college graduates and those leaving
school for the summer were enabled
to continue their education through
part-time work provided by the Na-
tional Youth Administration.
In Washtenaw County 174 youths
were employed on a part-time basis
in 11 schools during the past school
year for which a maximum of $6
per month was paid in wages by the
NYA for work assigned by school offi-
cials School authorities in 803
schools who supervised the selection
and assignment of 17,698 needy high
school students during the past school
year found all sorts of useful jobs
to be done which, if possible, Were
correlated with the type of study in
which the youth was specializing in
order to give practical work experi-
ence in this field. As an example,
youth taking commercial courses as-
sisted in the school office doing typ-
ing, mimeographing and general
clerical work; some did landscaping
and repair work. Other youth assist-
ed in chemistry laboratories or in
the school libraries. In no case were
regular maintenance personnel dis-
In 43 Michigan colleges, 6,980 needy
students did similar types of work
with perhaps more specialization be-
cause of the advanced character of

the instruction and facilities.
Evidence of the earnestness with
which these NYA youth are pursuing
their education are reports from prac-
tically every college in the state that
NYA students show superior scholar-
ship records to the average prevail-
ing in the institution.
There are 50 per cent more ap-
plications for NYA part-time :work
than can be assigned to the program
because of the limited funds avail-
