Oklahoma City, Okla., Sept. 26-(By
A.P.)-Undaunted by the result of the
first skirmish with military forces of
the state, members of the lower house
of Oklahoma legislature prepared to-
night for the next move in their at-
tempt to meet to consider the ofil-
cial acts of Gov. J. C., Walton.
Despite the fact that thely were

A statement by Rep. W. D. McBee,
a leader in the assembly move, de-
clared that the proceedings constitut-
ed a meeting of the House notwith-
standing its interruption by troops.
With the statement, Representative
McBee made public what he declared
to be the official journal of the House.
It detailed the action which termin-
ated in the clearing of the capital
corridor by the military.
No Atempt to Re-assemble
Prevented from meeting the House
members tonight pinned their hopes
from protection against the military
authorities upon the efforts of legal
committees which are preparing court
proceedings to force the next step
in the coflit.
That there will be no immediate at-
tempt to assemble again in defiance
of martial law regulations, was the
lromise made late today by house
leaders of Adjutant General Baird l.
M~arkam. Observers predicted tha
the solons would await a court rul:ng
before essaying another assembly.
Representative W. l i. Biney, chair-
pan of the legal committee said to-
Alght that the court proceedings
could not get underway before morn-
ing. He refused to indicate what
form the action might take.

More than 1500 members of the class
of '27 gathered last night in the As-
sembly hall of the Union for the an-
nual Freshman reception of the Union.
Following a short musical program
President Marion L. Burton, the
speaker of the evening was introduced
by Thomas J. Lynch, '25 L, chairman
of the reception.
Do Not Limit Friendship
"The mark of an educated person is
his ability to make easily and quickly
a difficult transition", said President
Burton speaking on the subject "Thri
Test of Transition". "It is like a jump
in the dark and the real man must not
be afraid to take it or become con-
fused in the process".
Enlarging upon the subject of tests
President Burton cautioned his hear-
ers to learn to keep their balance and
claracterized this as the first test.
"Do not limit your friendship to any
one group or class," he said, "and be
extremely careful in your final choice
of friends".
"There is no better place in the
world to acquire an understanding of
the world than in this University", the
President continued, in touching on
the test of adaptabiliy. "Wherever you
may travel you will find that the
knowledge gained here will be invalu-

in fact anyone who can urn a brush or
crayon is eligible to take part in the
poster contest for the 1924 Union op-
era. One of the ountan ;iing features
of the annual .Lov is its trade-mark
the poster, and a novel one is wanted
this year. The poster is not usually
one that requires a great deal of work,
but its prinme requisite is originality.1
Anything original will be considered,
and for that reason it is expected that
men who have not had a great deal of
experience in drawing will compete,
together with those who have done
more work.
E. Mortimer Shuter, director of the
opera, will meet all men who desire to
take part in the contest for which
prizes are to be given, at 5 o'clock this
afternoon at his office in the Mimes
theater. iHe will explain in a general
way what is wanted in the poster, and
then throw the contest open.

Government Determined Not to Yield
Any Territory; Von Klhar Named
Berlin, Stept. 26--(By A.P.)-Presi-
dent Ebert and Chancellor Strese-
mann announced in a formal procla-
mation today that the German govern-
ment had been compelled through
bitter necessity to end the Ruhr bat-
Adherence to passive resistance,
said the document, would have
brought on the economic collapse of
Germany and consequently would
have threatened the livelihood of the
German people.
Appeals to Nation
The government appeals to the na-
tion to stand by the republic in the
present hour of "severest soul-search-
ing and material privation, as only
(hus can the nation's honor and life
he conserved."
The proclamation lays emphasis on
the statement that under no circum-
stances can a particle of Germany be
conceded to another power. The na-
tion is assured the government will
0do everything possible to obtain res-
toration of "elementary human rights"
for the German nations evicted from
the Ruhr and the Rhineland.
The history of the passive resist-
tance is reviewed over the document,
which sets forth that 180,000 men,
women and children have been driv-
en from their homes and firesides
while many millions no longer have
any conception of personal liberty.
Hundreds in Prison
"More than 100 of our fellow citi-
zens have been forced to lay down
their lives," it continues, "while hun-
dreds are st:ll languishing in' pris-
As to the expense of the support
given the passive resistance the pro-
clamation cites tile fact that only
last week the assistance given in the
Ruhr amounted to 3,500,000,000 marks
and that this would have to be doub-
led the following week,
The cost of this assistance had j
made the stabilization of the currency
impossible, it was pointed out. "The
entente now is able to give Germany
peace," the document declares.

has not been determined as commun-
ications have been disrupted. Kure
is in the extreme southwest end off
the island of Hondo and about 450
miles southwest of Tokio.
Floods had followed a typhoon yes-
terday in Sukagawa and hionjo wards
of Tokio. Many had suffered as a
result as thousands of refugees were
camping in rude shacks in these
wards. The storm damaged rice and
other crops in many sections.
Thousands of men, chiefly profes-
sional men and clerks are out of em-
ployment here as a result of the
earthquake. They are also without
hope of obtaining employment for
months to come, although there is
plenty of work for laborers.
