Birth Town - Starts With Magyar

I am looking for some help identifying the birth village/town in Hungary of my grandfather, Henry Vanek.

I have attached his World War I draft registration form to this message. There are two words that identify his town. The first is clearly Magyar. The second is not so clear - it may be Feuss, Fluns, Feurs or ?? I have tried looking in the LDS PlaceSearch and a gazeteer of Hungary with no luck so far.

Henry emmigrated to the U.S. through Ellis Island from Budapest in 1907. The manifest indicates his place of birth is Magyar. I have other information that indicates Henry's father was very likely Bohemian. So I am wondering if Henry's birth town is someplace between Bohemia and Budapest.

Thanks for any thoughts or ideas.
