MASOH (Uuited Press War Eswrt) The. sudden death of Count Te- leki, premie^ of Hungary, described today in Budipeat as having occurred "in "tragic circumstances," comes at a moment when persistent reports credit Germany with preparing t o attack J u g o s l a v i a through Hungarian territory. The Hungarians'a^nd Jugoslavs have no quarrel between themselves, and it Is difficult to believe Count Telekl would have "desired to submit to belligerent G e r m a n - pressure, Involving his country in -,var solely in Ado'f Hitler's,interests. - · Suspicions Aroused Count Teleki's death was not preceded by any Indication of serious illness.

They can be reached by a difficult and lengthy movement from Rumania, but Hungary Is the natural gateway nnd would have to servo as a base for transporting supplies even for a campaign against Jugoslavia moving from Rumania. N Danger From Bonbers _ Hungarians naturally have no desire to · see their own country aflame with war from which they can get nothing. Although It is not probable that Hungary would be invaded by a Jugoslav army, nevertheless, f.ttacka from the air on German supply bases and military concentrations in Hungary would seem inevitable with Budapest, itself, In range of Jugoslav bombers.
