Illinois Women Lead In Drive
For European Student Relief

Cabbage soup and:a chunk of black
bread was served to Illinois student'
solicitors at the lucnheon concluding
the two lay European student relief
drive, which netted $2,974.39, accord-
ing to the Daily Illini.E
Of this amount, more than $1,9001
was turned in on the second day of
the drive. Women students turned in
the largest total, the men were next
and the faculty, third. Unsolicited
townspeople also contributed.
E. F. Nickoley of the Illinois school
of economics, told the campaigners
that general ignorance of conditions in
Europe hampered the work of theI
Speaking of the European students,

Mr. Nickoley said. "These students
are making a fight for existence and a
fight to keep themselves from drop-
ping down to the lowest animal levels.
They are trying to keep alive the
intellectual traditions of Europe. Most
of the students are either from the
formerly cultured and well to do
homes or have risen from the ranks."
"I have often wondered," he contin-
ued, "if my own countrymen would
put ip such a fight. We admire a game
fight, and we need the kind of a Eu-
rope that only university people can
make and preserve."
This campaign is one of many being
conducted in the larger universities
and colleges throughout the country.

"One of the reasons why I came tc
America," said M. Paul Peliot, of the
College de France, in his lecture Mon-
day afternoon in the Natural Science
auditorium, "is to instill in the young
man an interest in the history, the
language, and in the archaeology of
the Far-East. It is strange that s
great a country as America which i
vitally interested in the problems of
the Pacific should take so little inter-
est in this field, for in order to spec-
ulate as to the future of the Far East
it is necessary to know something of
its past."
Professor Peliot spoke of the forma-
tion of China, of its relations with the
neighboring tribes, and of the influence
of these tribes on China itself.'
The Chinese civilization developed
along lines of its own and according
to Professor Peliot it is for this rea-
son that the Chinese civilization is the
only civilization withwhich we can
check the progress of our own.
In his lecture yesterday jme showed
the development of Christianity in the
far-east under the Mongol conquer-
ors following Jenghiz Khan.
"Christianity first reached Asia ir
the. seventh century . and the first
christian chirch existed for two cen-
turies. This is evidenced by the mon-
uments and tablets found In the north'
and west of China. Some of these
monuments have only recently beer
discovered, Manuscripts and docu-
ments which had been walled in the
caves of the thousand Buddhas since
the eleventh century were discovered
a few years ago by Professor Peliot
In these manuscripts are contained
the gospel of the three trinities, the
books of Genesus and Psalms.
Professor Peliot also said that early
in the middle ages there was a meag-
er correspondence between the Pope
and the Khans, while in the first hal;
of the thirteenth century two Christ-
ians who were borq; in the vicinity o
Peking became priests and in th
year 1275 they made pilgrimages t
the holy land.
President William G. Spencer of
Hillsdale college was the princ'pal
speaker at the opening banquet of the

He also discussed special points of

Prof. Leroy Waterman of the Semit-
ics department who is holding course
of study in the Institute dealing with'

fact that a knowledge of the strong
and weak points of other faiths is in-
dispensable to the missionary, as weP
as other Christians.

President Shows Yearlings the Three
Paths from Which Every Man
Must Choose
Three choices which every man must
make were discussed last night by
President M. L. Burton, addressing
an all-freshmen assembly in the Un-
ion. In the course of his talk on "ThE
Freshman's Choice" President Burtor
I mentioned "A straight-cut out and out
choice between good and evil, the
choice from among a lot of things
all of which are good, and the choice
between all of these things and what
you are. The last of these was char-
acterized as the supreme choice.
"Be Your Best"
In speaking of it, President Burtor
said, "Before anything else, be your-
self at your best. Face squarely th
forces which would disentigrate you
personality," for we will have a great
student body just as we have great
individual students.
"It is impossible to get away froir
a choice between good and evil," the
speaker said. "There are element
f which require you to choose betweer
them. And there is a sharp distinc-
tion for everyone between what yor
ought to do and what you ought not
to do. You must choose."
Among the characteristic eviltI
President Burton mentioned laziness
dishonesty in work, mediocre worl
and slavish work. In the evils of1
social relations he included waste of
time, waste of money and the laying of
habits which limit permanently ef-
fectiveness in the world. Quoting
Theodore Roosevelt, he r said, "You
must be able to look a man straight
in the eye and tell him to go to hell!"
"Good, Better and Best"
The hardest choice was declared by
the .speaker to, be the choice from
among a lot of things, all of which'
are good. In treating of this he Men-
tioned good things, better things and
best things. "Get as much of thebes1I
as you can," was his advice to the
In closing, President Burton told
the 'freshmen to "recognize their lim-
itations and not run to extremes. Try
if you can, to make your choice fit
your needs as individuals, always re-
garding symmetry," he said.1

Garner and Longworth Reach General
Agreement On Question of
Auto Levies
Washington, Feb. 25.-(By AP)-
Two amendments were incorporated
in the revenue bill today by the house
amid storms of debate involving a
series of personal exchange of threats
of Republic organization leaders to
1 vote against passage of the entire bill,
and a warning from Representative
Mills, Republican, New York, of the
possibilities of a presidential veto.
The session ended in a row over the
reduction of the automobile taxes,
while action on these proposals go-
ing over until Thursday. The house

Soft Collar Mart
Sduffers 'Collapse,
The soft collar market in Ann Ar-
bor has collapsed. Neckgoar which
dealers say cost the manufacturerE
nine cents each to make are begging
buyers at a solitary, humble nickel.
It all started when one dealer, an-
xious to unload, offered thirty-five cent
collars at ten cents each; three for
twenty five cents. A few hours later
another State street haberdasher had
his window filled with collars with r
placard in the center bearing the
symbol, "five cents each."
Popularity of shirts with collars at-
tached among Michigan men is cited
by dealers as the principal factor in
the lack of demand for soft collars
"Spring is comning and we just have
to unload," explained one dealer.
Pastor of Labor Temple, New York,
Speaks on Moral Phase of
Modern Industry
Social workers of the middle west
opened a two day conference conduct-
ed by the Fellowship for a Christian
Order yesterday afternoon in room
302 of the Union. The purpose of'
this conference is to discuss the in-
dustrial and economic problems in
their relations to social work.
Mr. E. B. Chaffee, '13L, pastor of
the Labor Temple, New York opened
the conference, choosing for his sub-
ject "The Modern Industry: Is it Pag-
an or Christian?" Mr. Chaffee's
church located on the East Side of
New York, caters to the foreigners
engaged in the industrial life of that
city. He spoke of the industrial evils
which seem to be prevalent among
these people.
"Unemployment is a great today as,
it was during the depression of 1921.
There are more than 400 unemployed
sleeping on the benches of the Labor
Temple each night. This continued
unemployment causes deterioration of
character among the working class
and is one of the worst evils of the in-
dustrial situation today," said Mr.,
After discussing other evils of the
industrial situation among which hej
included underproduction, poverty,
which is due to underproduction,
child labor, the industrial system asI

machine production, Mr. Chaffee con-I

Representative to Mexico Discusses
Relations' Between Japan
And United States
Denouncing American interference
with Mexico so long as seized proper-
ties are properly paid for, and advoc-
ating the World Court as a necessity
to the equable conduct of nations,
Hon. Charles B. Warren, '91, former
ambassador to Japan and now ambass-
ador to Mexico, addressed the Ann Ar-
bor Chamber of Commerce at their
Lawyers day luncheon yesteday
noon. Frank E. Stivers, of this city,
president of the Lawyer's club pre-
sided and Pres. Marion L. Burton de-
livered a short introductory preface
to Mr. Warren's speech on "Inter-
national Relations."
Mr. Warren occupied the first por-
tion of his address with the Far East,
having, as ambassader to Japan, fol-
lowed the situation there for years.
The general public of America, accord-
ing to Mr. Warren, have a number of
mistaken conceptions in regard to far
eastern problems.
"The people of Japan," he told his
listeners, "realize that great numbers
of them will never be allowed in the
United States; they realize that the
better classes of America, moreqver,
do not object to them, on racial
Wants Fair Play
"All that Japan wants is that they
be measured by the same yard-stick
used on others. The Japanese are
perfectly willing to be excluded from
the country by the same rule that ap-
plies to other' races and countries.
But they protest, and justly so, when a
special provision' is made against
One of the greatest of the prob-
lems that is puzzling the Far East,
according the eminent authority, is
the "total inability of the Chinese gov-
ernment to function in that capacity."
One of the reasons, Mr. Warren be-
lieves, is the f'act that Chinese politi-
cians have not come to realize that a
public office is a public trust.
"China is a great international mar-
ket and there has been ruthless coin-
petition for the in and out trade there,"
