ty, Leader of Insurgents, ,De-
mands Obedience From

(By Associated Press)
Oppen, Silesia, May 6.-Two hund-
red , Italian soldiers, commanded by
Colonel Bond of the British army, ev-
acuated Gross Strelitz, a little more
tha4 20 miles southeast of this city,
last night. At that time the town' was
under artillery fire from Polish in-
surgents. Ah making his report to the
Allied commission here, Colonel Bond
urged the necessity of sending rein-
Sforceents, laying emphasis upon the
need;of machine guns and ammuni-
tion. The French officials here declar-
ed they were unable to furnish more
soldiers, saying they were 'short of
-men everywhere in the plebiscite zone.
The Poles are reported to be in pos-
session of the entire eastern section
of Silesia as far north as Rosenberg,
which the commission heard they oc-
supied yesterday without opposition.
Fighting is still going on at Rybnik,
in southern Silesia.
Organize Civians
Organization of civilian police to
the number of 3,000, to reinforce en-
tente troops is contemplated here.
These police would be upper Silesian
Germans, it is indicated.
When a copy of the proclamation
issued by Adalbert Korfanty, in which
he declared himself governor of Upper
Silesia, reached the inter-Allied, com-
mission here, a French official said:
"Korfanty is now a rebIl, and should
we apprehend him, he will be treated
as such."
Frenh Not Surprised
The proclamation, which, it is un-
derstood, was issued at Sosnowice,
where Korfanty has his headquarters,
demanded obedience 'to Nowina Doi-
liwa, named as chief of the insurg-
ents, and Korfanty, on pain of death,
It also threatened thieves and plund-
erers with the death sentence. French
authorities here accepted Korfanty' ,
action without surprise, saying it
would make little difference with the
"With insufficient forces," said one
official, "we are doing everything pos-
sible to put a, end to this movement,
and we hope to have the situat~on In
hand in two or tlee days. Had the
Germans not behaved so well, 'condi-
tionk would have been more serious."
Au unconfirmed report from War-
saw today stated that Korfanty has
been captured with his entire staff.
Dr. Joseph A. Vance, pastor of the
First Presbyterian church of Detroit,'
will be the chief speaker at the an-

ary affair given by the Session of the

At that time announcements will be

ing should inquire of Louis C. Rei-]

Oratorical Contest Honors Given To
,Wisconsin; JMichigan Fails To Place

Wisconsin won. first pltc'e in the
'1orthern oratorical contest held at
Iowa city Thursday night, Illinois
took second, and Northwestern came
in third. Michigan, the winner of
first place in last year's contest, failed
to place.
Although Michigan did not recpive
recognition among the first three con-
testants this season, she has won
more contests during the 30 years
that she has participated than any
other school, having gotten 10 first
places and 4 second places. Oscar A.
Brown, '21, was the representative
from here this year.

Prof. H. D. T. Hollister, of the ora-
tory department, when asked his opin-
ion as to the results of the meeting
said: "It must have been an' excep-
tionally strong contest, for I -have
seldom seen a speaker representing
Michigan in the Northern oratorical
contest as well prepared as Brown."
Sterling Tracy, of Wisconsin, who
won,flrt place, spoke onw"America
and Britain for Civilization". The Il-
linois speaker, Miss Gladys Penning-
ton, spoke on "Return America".
"The Hopes of Peace" was the title
of the oration delivered by Russell
Kirkpatrick, of Northwestern, who
finished third.
Prof. Thomas C. Trueblood, who ac-
companied Brown, went last night
from Iowa city to Mitchell, S. D.,
where he will act as a judge in the
Interstate Oratorical association con-
test in, which 12 states are represent-
ed. This league is composed of the
smaller colleges which do not belong
to the Northern Oratorical league. On
his return trip he will stop at Free-
port, Ill., on Sunday to speak on Sav-
ronola at the Presbyterian church

Other Nations Lead
"Since China is a great undeveloped
country," he said, "and probably our
greatest potential trade field, it Is nat-
ural that the attention of congress
should be directed toward legislation
calculated to place our merchants in
that field upon an equal footing with
our competitors. _ Other nations which
have preceded us in China have al-
ready taken this action, years ago and
have obtained strong foothold there.
Congress Should Act
"If congress does not come -to our
assistance and enact legislation to
place us on an even footing with our
strong competitors. our trade out

unimportant position of before the.
"Our trade with China has Dot Jbeen
healthy for the reason that we buy
more from China than we sell to
China. China is a great market for
mtachnery and forapractically all lines
of m ufactured articles produced In
America, btu we can't sell enough out
there to even balance our purchases
of Chinese raw products. What fur-
ther argument do we need for legis-
lation that will enable our manufac-
turers to go to China, and sell' their
products on an even basis with the
manufacturers of other nations?"
Detroit is to have a motorboat and
sportsman's show during the week of

Tuesday, May 24, 10 students of the
landscape design department, under
the supervision of Professor -Tealdi,
wil begin their annual spring, tour.
The trip this year is to be made by
automobile which, it is expected, will
add a great deal to the pleasure of the
expedition and make it possible to

terest on the way. This will leave
