BROOKLYN EAGLE. MONTH V. OCTOBER 17. 193ft Czech Patrol Attacked Twice By Hungarians Prague Will Decree Martial Law in 17 Areas Near Frontier Prague, Oct. 17 (U.R) The army received advices today that Hungarian soldiers had opened (ire on a Czechoslovak patrol at Biel, Clo-vakia, and had thrown hand grenades at them as Prague decided to decree martial law in 17 frontier districts. After withdrawing, the Hungarians returned and attacked the patrol a second time. The Czechoslovaks did not return the fire. An army report from Slovakia and ftuthenia reported that Hungarian terrorists seized there were armed with rifles, pistols, hand grenades, and dynamite. Continued activity of terrorists was reported. Near Slanky, 297 Hungarians were held, including 26 army reserve officers and 62 non-commissioned officers. The report said 2.000 Hungarians had been seized or dispersed in Ruthenia in the last few days and that a so-called Slovak legion was being formed in Hungary along lines of the Sudeten free corps. To Resume Parley Czechoslovak and Hungarian delegations will resume negotiations this week and the Czechs will make essentially the same offer that the Hungarians rejected angrily at the Komarom conference last week. The Czechs believed that in the light of weekend developments the Hungarians would either accept or seriously consider the offer, which they denounced at Komarom as ridiculous. Frantisek Chvalkovsky, Czechoslovak Foreign Minister, who has Just returned from Munich and Berlin, was understood to have brought assurances that Germany would aid Czechoslovakia industrially and financially, as well as guarantee fair treatment from Hungary. Hungary Rushes Troops to Border Budapest, Oct. 17 (P) Hungary continued' to move troops and war equipment to the Czechoslovak border today while the Cabinet met to consider suggestions made by Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini to settle the minority dispute. (Reports from the frontier said Czechoslovak troops also were moving up to their lines facing Hungary. One Czechoslovak diplomat said it was possible that Prague had assembled 500,000 to 750,000 men along the Danube.) Rome Puts Czechs In Axis Rome, Oct. 17 W) A strong hint came from Italian official quarters today that in order to satisfy Premier Mussolini and Reichsfuehrer Hitler Czechoslovakia must come within the orbit of the Rome-Berlin axis. A bulletin of the Informazione Dl-plomatlca, information service, distributed by the Ministry of Popular Culture, indicated that the Prague government's policies political, economic and "spiritual" must swing toward those of nazl Germany and fascist Italy. The bulletin said negotiations for the cession of Czechoslovak territory to Hungary would be resumed in a few days and the outcome would be successful for Hungary. It added that once the new frontiers of Czechoslovakia are fixed in accordance with Mussolini's principles they would be guaranteed by Italy. Once Czechoslovakia's "international political, economic and spiritual readjustment" is achieved along with establishment of its new frontiers diminished by losses of territory to Germany, Poland and Hungary Prague can count on Italy's friendship, the bulletin said. The bulletin said the "military measures adopted by the Budapest government are regarded in responsible Roman circles as perfectly justified." Editors Praise U. S. Free Press In Czech Crisis Chicaeo. Oct. 17 (U.R) The American Society of Newspaper Editors today praised the privilege of a free press as the factor which enabled United States newspapers to keep their readers better informed on details of the recent European crisis than were the people in the nations involved.

Snyder said he hadn't Intended to shoot his former wife's present husband, that the gun had gone off by accident? Alderman, Miss Etting and Enyder's daughter, who Is Miss Etting's secretary, told a different story. Snyder shot Alderman in a jealous rage, they said, and if Miss Etting hadn't gotten her own pistol and if his daughter hadn't fired at him he would have shot them all.

Snyder ran out the back door, knocking over a garbage can as he went, and rang the door bell of Wayne Morris, an actor, who lives next door, to say that Miss Etting had shot him. Then Snyder clasped his hands behind his back and started pacing the sidewalk in front of the Etting home. He still was walking back and forth when police arrived. They confiscated his gun, from which they said the serial numbers had been filed, and took him to jail. Japanese Bomb U. S.

The Japanese column thrusting toward Canton ran into well intrenched positions held Dy some 100,000 Chinese troops equipped with field guns, howitzers and antiaircraft defenses.
