Prc-World war diplomats were able to speak in that cynical style of the vast area of fertile "black earth" plains bordering the north shore of the Black Sea. They used the phrase bccau.se her borders were ill-defined, her institutions chaotic, her peoples backward, her cities legendary and unreal. But not any more. The Ukraine today is somber truth. As the "breadbasket of Russia" her possession in vital to the Soviet Union. Bui for the e reason, Germany's Hitler has more than once speculated longingly on "what Germany might be if it had the Ukraine." And that German ambition is no idle dream. Twenty years ago it was a fact. Early in 1918, amid the confusion of ihe Russian revolution, German troops under General Siclmni invaded and occupied the -Ukraine to force delivery of grain and supplies so badly needed by hard-pressed German troops An Ancient Land Tin. 1 Black Sen shore is one of the Czechs Accede to Demands of Poles, Averting Invasion New Threat, After Ger. man Settlement, Also Is Quickly Solved TAKE SUDETENLAND German Army Marches Across Frontier, Following Munich Pact WARSAW, Poland—M>)—Czechoslovakia accepted Poland's territorial demands in full Saturday, thereby avert' ing a threatened invation.

(Hope time) Saturday, to start formal occupation of Uio Sudctenland. Rcconnitering units preceded the main body of the occupation force across the border during the early morn ing. A force estimated at about 30,000 men, commanded by Col.-Gen. Rilter von Lccb. As the German troops advanced they were separated from the Czech forces by a neutral zone 3,280 yards wide, running roughly parallel to the new frontier. ancient regions of the earth. Since long before historic time, men have lived find worked there. Three hundred years ago it was part of a great Polish-Lithuanian empire. But for the past 150 years it has been politically a. part of Russia. .. , . ,. ._ _. Not until about 100 years ago did a strong agitation arise for an independent stale to include all those Ukrainians or Ruthenians who lived in what arc now Russia, Poland, Hungary and Rumania. The movement had little importance before the World war, but it was a great element in the chaos which came with thq breakup of old Russia, Germany and the old Auslro-Hungarian empire. When Czarist Russia fell apart the Ruthenium; of the Ukraine set up a .separate republic which was recognized by the Russian Provisional government and later by the Communists when they took over the revolution. But the Communists soon changed policy, and it was against their will that the Ukraine signed a separate peace with Germany, agreeing to furnish vast supplies of grain in return for manufactured goods. The Atistro-Gcrman armies with- Polish Demands PRAGUE, Czechoslovakia—(/I 1 )—The Czechoslovak government, after yielding under protest to the Munich partition accord, received a new Polish note Friday night calling for immediate response to Poland's territorial demands. Poland has asked the Czechoslovak government to vacate all Czechoslovak territory inhabited by Poles. In Warsaw, the Polish government WHS said to have set Saturday as a deadline for answering its demands. Polish authorities have not disclosed just what the demands were but the region generally mentioned is Tescb,cn Silesia, an area of 772 square miles where most *f the Polish minority of approximately 100,000 resides. Extra police and soldiers were drafted to curb demonstrations against the Munich accord after Gen. Jan Syvovy, soldier premier, announced the government's decision to surrender Su- dctenland to Germany in fact of "a superior force 'which has compelled us to accept." "We are ready to give our blood— don't give- in" and "we want the whole republic—we want to fight," the demonstrators shouted. Police used peaceful persuasion to quiet them. There were no clashes. The government, determined not to give Germany any excuse for intervention, ordered a fresh blackout similar to ones conducted on recent nigh'ts against air raids. The Munich agreement was pub lithed here for the first time Friday night. The nation was reported to have received it calmly us a whole. Radio programs were cancelled as a signal of national mourning. Only ar occasional news bulletin or appeal foi order went on the air. drawing at the Armistice, Pctlura and Vinnichcnko set up a dictatorship at Kiev and warred with the Poles for East Galicia, which had been awarded to Poland by the Allies. Pctlura, driven out by a Communist rising, then joined the Poles in an attack on the Ukraine. But both this effort and that of Denikin the "White" general were repelled by the Communist Red Army. Both Poland and Russia recognized the independence of the Ukraine. In 1923, when the Soviet constitution was adopted, the Ukraine became one of the constituent republics of the U. S. S. H, llcvtiUs Klourish The independence movement did not die. From time to lime during the past 10 years, revolts, separatist and nationalist movements have been reported from the Ukraine, with wide lisagrccment as to their scriousness. raminc of similarly disputed gravity several times swept the region, but recent crops, under a system almost completely colleutivizcd, appear to lave been bountiful. Much of the nationalist agitation is carried out by Ukrainians outside the country. German propagandists have •jcen active in the Ukraine itself. However widespread rebellion against Moscow rule may have been, It is certain that it has mafic no headway, and by purge or progress hus been promptly "liquidated." In Poland 4,500,000 Ukrainians constitute a racial "minority" which claims to be oppressed and demands autonomy. And the Ukrainians in Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and Rumania also constitute minority problems. But there seems no doubt at all that in any war waggd by Moscow against powers to the west, the Ukrainians would inarch in the forefront. The vast -wheat fields, the Donctz coal mines, the iron center of Krivoi Rog, the industrial cities of Kiev and Kharkov, the vast electric plant at Dmuiprostroi, the Black Sea ports of Odessa and Rostov (Russia's best coast line) make it vital to Russia that this area be kept an in tergal purl <>C Ihe Soviet system. By LEONARD 1-.LL1S SMACKOVER, Ark.—Held scoreless in the first half by a fighting Buckaroo team, the Hope High School football squad was forced to turn on all its power in the last two periods to whip Smackover, 19 to 0, before approximately 2.500 fans that jammed the Buck stadium here Friday night. Tho victory, hard-earned, was the third straight win of the season for Hope. Scoring touchdowns for the Bobcats were Roy Taylor, center, Joe Eason, halfback, and Jimmy "Ding Dong" Daniels, who really rung the bell with his all-round play. The First Score Smackover received to open the last half and returned to their 35-yard line. Three line plays failed. Este.s went back to punt and a snarling pack of Bobcats tore through the line and blocked the punt. The alert Roy Taylor scooped up the ball, tucked it near his heart and was off for a touchdown. He was tackled as he went over the last stripe. The Bobcats were marching for a touchdown as the third quarter ended, having the ball on the eight-yard line with one-yard to go. The fourth attempt, a line play, failed. Smackover punted, out, but with Charles Ray B^iker and Daniels hitting the line for consistent gains ,the Bobcats soon were on the three-yard line where Daniels dashed through to score on a line plunge. Hope's third touchdown came alxntt five minutes before the gun ended the game. Daniels intercepted a pass and ran 25 yards before he was brought down on the three-yard line. Daniels moved it to the one-yard line and then called on Joe Eason to carry it over. Eason drove- hard and went five yards beyond the goal line before he was brought down, Battle Throughout While all the Bobcats fought hard, Roy Taylor, Captain Dean Parsons, Major Simpson and Norman Green played bang-up defensive ball. Jimmy Taylor and Charles Quimby fought hard at the guard positions. Smackover was impressive in the opening quarter and outplayed the Bobcats, making three first downs while Hope played mostly defensive ball. Estes and Scott, halfbacks, were the two outstanding men for the Bucks. The Smackover team never serious-1 ly threatened to score at any time during the game, but put up a defensive scrap that forced the Bobcats to fight for all their gains. The first downs were Hope 14; Smackover !). Hope attempted three passes und completed two of them. Smackover attempted 10 find completed only one. The Kirst Quarter Smackover received, returned to their 40. Scott went over his right tackle for first down. On the next play, Roy Taylor tossed Estes for a 12- yard loss. Norman "Tarzan" Green was through on the next play to throw Scoll for five yard loss. Smackover pomted. the ball rolling to Hope's 12- yard line. Colcman made two on a line play and Hope punted to its own -10. Roy Tayor was through the line on the next play and brought the carrier dovin for a five-yard loss. Colcman nailed Este;i on an attempted end run for a five-yard loss. Smackover punted to Samuels who fumbled on his own 40, Smackover recovering. Samuels intercepted a pass two plays later and brought the, ball back to his own -10. Three line plays netted six yards and Daniels punted to the Buck 30. Three line plays failed and Estos got off a long boot which sent the ball rolling to Hope's five-yard line. The punt was good for about 60 or 65 yards, Daniels punted to his 10.

Jonesborg Sliips Spa HOT SPRINGS—For the first time since they have been meeting, the Joncsboro High School Golden Hurricane defeated the Hot Springs Trojans, 13 to 0, here Friday night. Coach Wayne (Red) Swaim's boys lucked a scoring punch. Three times they had thc ball close to thc Joncsboro goal, only to lose it on downs. Once they had two downs in which to go only two yards, another time only three yards. In the fourth quarter they drove to within five yards of thc Hurricanes' goal and failed to score. Trojan Air Game Disastrous The Trojans were woefully weak on passes. Practically every Hot Springs liass was caught by a Joncsboro player.

Friday night. George Zawislak, 175-pound Polish youngster, smashed over a touchdown from thc one-foot line on fourth down two minutes before the end of the game to enable thc hard-fighting North Little Rock Wildcats to gain a tie. Aflcr Ihree scoreless periods, Blythc- ville. scored before thc final quartei was a minule old. A couple of substitutes, Monk Mosley, brother of Russ Mosley, the Chick star and Willis Ford fullback, completed a 15-yard pass for the touchdown. Warringlon failed to convert for thc Chicks as did Zawislak for the Wildcats. Wildcats AtU(ck Furiously Virtually whipped with the game nearly over the Wildcats stood a crowc estimated at 10,000 on their toes wher "Dashing Dale" Duckworth, complel- ed a 42-yard pass to Carl Laffcrty placing Ihe hall on the Blytheville 10. It was the first time during the game that thc courageous Cowanitcs hac gotten within 30 yards of the Chicks goal and they attacked furiously. Stanley Pasierb, Duckworth and Zawislak smashed tVje ball to the 10. They just picked up thc ball and whammed away. With first down and goal to go, Zawislak powered two, Laffcrty lammed seven on a culback through tackle and got a half-yard on third down. But Zawislak, an excellent blocking back, proved he can plunge by going over like a tank. Umpire W. A. (Scrappy) Moore took one look and turned on the touchdown nod that even made the stands stagger'. Intercepted Pass Helps Chicks Blythcville's score largely was due to thc fact that Eugene Hood, another sub Chick back, intercepted a Wildcat pass on the North Side 30. Another pass put thc ball on the North Side 20 as thc third quarter ended. Thc Chicks failed to choke on this occasion a.s they ganicd five yards on two runiug plays and then Mosley passed to Ford for the touchdown.
