Chancellor Stresemann Advoeates
"Xore Elbow Room" for the
Occupied Territories
Berlin, Nov. 19.(-By A. P.)-Chan-
cellor Stresemann and the Reischtag
committee on foreign relations today
devoted six hours to a rambling dis-
cussion of the situation in the Rhine-
land and'the Rhur and then adjourned
without having arrived at any definite
Party leaders and representatives
from the occupied areas invited as
special guests, 'took part in today's
debate, the chancellor having taken
the position that the issues must be
discussed with local elements and that
the committee of foreign relations was
a competent body in that the impend-
ing solution was closely wrapped with
Germany's foreign relations.
The concensus in the ranks of all
parties seems to be that the Rhineland
and Rhur are lost as far as Ger-
many's ability to assert and maintain
complete sovereign rights over both
the areas are concerlied, and that
ways and means must be devised tc
forestall their -complete political de-
tachment and loss to the republic.
"If the Rhineland and the occupied
Rhur sector are 'to pass out of all
control we must devise means whic
will enable them. t remain with Ger-
many," said' one of the parliamentary
Chancellor Stresemann advocated
"more elbow room" for the occupied
zone, permitting the inference that the
government was more fully rec9nciled
to the plan of allowing the occpied
areas to work out their own salvation
even to, the, extent of permitting th
creaton.'of a local parliament or leg-
islative government body, tp which the
central government would concede un-
restricted,. administrative autonomy
and upon which, would fall the re-
sponibility of negotiating with 'the
occupying powers.'

"A Thousand Ye
Presented By
"A Thousand Years Ago," an Ara-
bian Nights story presented in elabor.
ate settings and depicting the adven-
turous life of a band of Maskers in the
city of Pekin, will be given at 8
o'clock tonight in Hill auditorium by i
Masques Dramatic society.
Prof. Nelson Director
The play, under the direction of
Professor J. Raleigh Nelson, of the!
English department, is the eighth an-!
nual production presented by the so-
ciety. It is an experiment in the Im-
provised Italian comedy-the Comedia
dell' Arte by Percy Mackaye.
"A Thousand Years ago" was first
produced in New York under the di-
rection of William Brady. Its distinct
literary merit marked it as a valuable
contribution to dramatic literature
and the atmosphere of oriental musicj
will be obtained by the use of the or-j
iginal music score used by Mr. Brady
in New York. The Sheherazada of
Rimsky-Korsakoff, the Turkish March
of Mozart and the Persian Garden of
Lii Lehmana are some of the' sourc-
es from which the music has been
drawn. Mrs. J. L. Schneider will di-
Liberals Will De-ote The to Attack
On Government's Weak
Foreign Policy
London, Nov. 19.-(By A. P.)-The
election manifesto of all the three
great parties are now before the coun-
try and ammunition is thus provided
for one of the most intense election
campaigns the country hs ever ex-
perienced. During the coning three
weeks there will be a perfect tornado
of election speeches.
The manifesto issued from United
Liberal headquarters today - affords
proof that the liberal campaign will
be.devoted to an attack on the govern-
ment's alleged feeble. foreign policy
which will be represented as. the
prime cause of trade depression and
unemployment, with less insistence on
the familiar complaints of the. liberal
In such attack Mr. Lloyd George's
effective platform manner will be of
tremendous advantage to the liberal
campaign. This seems to be recogniz-
ed by Premier Baldwin in his speech
today when he characterized Mr.
Lloyd George's latest speech as "a re-
version to type" and declared that Mr.
Lloyd George lost the last general
election because the people had ceas-
ed to trust him, and added the prime
minister, "lie will never recover that
trust by such speeches."
There is still no sign of any agree-
ment between the liberal and labor
party for a united campaign against
protection, and present indications
are such that this factor, as in the
general elections, give the government
.with its new protectionists policy a re-
newed lease of power on a minority
vote of the electorate,, or that all three
parties will be returned in such nearly
equal strength that none will have a
working majority.

Acquitted on Charges of Corruption in+
Connection with Purchase
of Residence
Oklahoma City, Nov. 19.-(By A. P.)
-Gov. J. C. Walton was removed from
office today by a unanimous vote of a
state senate court of impeachment on
the first article of the impeachment
bill submitted for a verdict.
The vote, which was on the charge
that the executive had abused his par-
1 don and parole authority was 41 to 0
for conviction.
A verdict of guilty also was return-
ed on article two charging the execu-
tive with placing his personal chauf-
feur on the state health department
payroll. Six senators voted for acquit-
tal on this charge. A member of
Governor Waton's council who re-
entered the senate chambers when the
roll call on the verdict was started en-
Itered exceptions to the vote on both
counts. The governor had not been
represented since he withdrew from
the trial Saturday.
Governor Walton was acquitted of
the charge of corruption in connec-
tion wtih the purchase of his resi-
dence here. The vote was 23 to 18,
which was less than the two thirds
majority needed for conviction.
In rapid succession the court sus-
tained charges that the governor had
padded the state payrolls, dispersed a
grand jury, suspended the habeus cor-
pus, issued the efficiency certificates
Iwhen no efficiency existed, for ob-
structng the October 2sspecial elec-
fion, collecting excessvs campaign
funds and irregularly sought contri-
bution and gifts.

their determination to disagree on the

Campu's Opildon Is That Rockwell
Was Tackled and Ball's
Progress Stopped
By Porter F. Butts
(Editor of Wisconsin Daily Cardinal)
Madison, Nov. 19.-The view of the
Daily Cardinal, student newspaper of
the University of Wisconsin, supported
by the prevailing opinion on the camp-
us, is that 'Referee Eckersall's deci-
sion in Saturday's game was not justi-
fied, in that Rockwell apparently was
tackled and the forward progress of
the ball was stopped.
The fact that the two teams im-
mediately lined up for play and the
unanimous opinions of competent eye
witnesses it is held place Eckersall in
error. The rule cited, it is admitted,
is correct but the application is not.
Here on the campus, however, the
decision is regarded as final and~there
is nothing but the best of will toward
Michigan and her players.w.
The crowd that surrounded Ecker-
sall after the game came from the pub-
lic stands near the field gate. The
trouble did not assume the propor-
tions o f a riot= but was, confin ed toa*
vigorous verbal protest. The students
stood in the opposite stands and sang

was tak'ng place.

person or the threatening demonstra-

protest of the game.
