the discovery of the tomb which
Count de Prorok believes is that of

The discussion showed a division
of opinion among the scientists .as to
the antiquity of Tin Hanan's tomb al-
though all agreed on Its importance I
to archaeology. Solomon Reinach,
conservator of the national museum
of St. Germain, called it the "greatest'
discovery and richest tomb ever,
found in North Africa outside Egypt."
He placed the date of the tomb about
500 B.C. The Abbe Chabot, noted
orientologist, however, said it dated
from about the time of Christ.
M. Gsell, who said he had been mis-
quoted by French and American news-
papers, asserted the tomb would not
have been made earlier than 1,000 B.
C., because of the iron objects found
in it, but said he thought it more like-
ly it dated from the ninth or tenth
century of the Christian era. Dis-
patches from Paris quoted M. Gsell as
saying that Tin Tanan lived in the
15th or 16th century of our era.

Council Of Churches Also Asks For
Demilitarization Of Chaplaincy
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, Dec. 11.-Repeal of the
immigration law excluding Japanese
from the United States was urged ati
the closing meeting of the Federal
Council of Churches' executive com-
mittee today. A strong plea for thei
demilitarization of the chaplaincy also
was made.
The council acted affirmatively on
the report of the committee on good
will which asserted that the Japan-
ese had been "deeply wounded" by
America's immigration stand, and
asked that the council take some steps
toward expressing to Congress dis-
approval of the Japanese exclusion
and asking repeal of the law.

C. C. Morrison, editor of the Chris-
tian Century, Chicago, stirred discus-
sion with a plea that the Council of'
Churches take action toward demili-
tarization of the chaplaincy -ystem.
Such action, he said, would be "the
first step of the church to excommuni-
cate war."

luckeye's Strong Team Will Be Faced
By Doyle, Chambers, Harrigan,
Schroeder, and Cherry
By Joseph Kruger
Ohio Wesleyan's giant five will en-
-age Coach Mather's Wolverine quintet
at 7:30 o'clock tonight at the Yost
eld house in the opening encounter
of the season.
The Buckeye squad boasts five vet-
rans, all of whom are tall, strong
players, who made quite a reputation
on the court last season. Ohio Wes-
eyan possesses one of the strongest
eams in the Ohio conference each
Coach Mather will start the contest
with Ed Chambers and Frank Harri-
gan at the forwards, Captain Dick
Doyle at center, and "Red" Cherry
nd Wayne Schroeder at the guard
ositions. Ha'rrngan and Schroeder,
he latter a sophomore, will play their
irst game of collegiate competition,
and upon their showing will depend
Michigan's strength in the Big Ten
Chambers Is Veteran
Chambers, who played at forward
nd guard last season, has been play-
ing a fine brand of ball in practice
and should prove to be one of the
eading scorers in tonight's encon-
er . Harrigan is also a clever shot,
especially around the basket.
Schroeder possesses the ideal build
for the back guard position, but he
acks experience. Doyle and Cherry
should prove real stars this season.
Coach Mather's chief problem Is to
develop a strong defense as this
seems to be the team's chief weakness
at the present time. Offensively the
Varsity five has shown considerable
strength in scrimmage, and the Skip-
per has been holding defensive drills
all week in order to bolster up the de-
fensive power.
Football Men Will Play
Ohio Wesleyan will line up with
Hill and Lamme at the forwards,
Captain Turney at center and Har-
low and Campbell at the guards. The
first four mentioned were -all mem-
bers of the football team that held
Syracuse to a 3-3 tie this fall.
Captain Turner, the visitor's cen-
ter, is rated as one of the best play-
ers in the Ohio conference, and he
and Dick Doyle should engage in an
interesting duel.
Michigan will meet the University
of Pittsburgh five at the Yost field
house on Thursday night in the sec-
ond non-Conference game. Molenda,
who joined the squad yesterday, and
Oosterbaan, who is expected out on
Monday, will in all probability see ser-
vice against the "Smoky City" five.
