VOL. XXXVI. No. 81











Foreign Students Will Introduce
Speaker, Read Scriptures,
And Give Solo
"Jesus Christ in the Orient" will be
the subject of Dr. Charles W. Gilkey's
address at the fourth University serv-
4ce at 7:30 o'clock tonight in Hill audi-
torium.' Impressions of his recent
tour of the Orient will be recounted in
the talk, together with portions of the
text of a series of six lectures which
he delivered to Indian students at
several of the large university centers
in India.
Chosen Foremost Pastor
/Dr. Gilkey was recently chosen as
one of the 25 leading preachers in
America by the vote of more than
25,000 ministers. He is at present
pastor of the Hyde Park Baptist I
church in Chicago, but has spent con-
siderable time recently in lecturing to
university audiences.
Tonight's program will be conduct-
ed ly foreign students who will intro-
duce the speaker, read the scriptures
and give a solo. Nur M. Malik, '27M,
of India, will preside at the service
and will introduce Dr. Gilkey. Miss
Mildred G. Drescher, '27Ed., will lead
the prayers, Miss Achy Iype, '28M,
will read the scripture passages and
L. S. Azad, '29E, will sing a solo. In
addition to the solo, a mixed quartet
will present the musical part of the
program, accompanied by Philip La-
Rowe, grad., on the organ.
Dr. Gilkey was chosen to deliver
lectures in Bombay, Lucknow, Lahore,
Calcutta, Rangoon and Madras to I
more than 40,000 students by the Bar-
rows Foundation. These lectures
have since been collected and printed
in book form under the title "Jesus
and Our Generation."
wm!1 Answer Queston
In his address tonight, Dr. Gilkey
will attempt to answer the question
in the minds of many foreign stu-
dents-"What Value has Jesus to an
Oriental." By 'reason of the oppor-
tunities for studying conditions in the
Efast ' which have been given to Dr.
Gilkey, it is believed he will be able
to give valuable information to stu-
dents interested in the progress and
place of Christianity in the Orient.

BERKELEY, Calif., Jan. 9.-
Frank Baker, motion picture ac-
tor of Hollywood, dived through
a window during the filming of
a feature movie here today, ex-
pecting that a group of stalwart
firemen were holding a life net
to catch him three stories below.
Through a misunderstanding the
net was on th'e other side of the
building and he struck the

This was the second accident
of the afternoon experienced in
the making of the same screen
play. A short time before, Ray
Steele, who was subbing for BenI
Wilson, plunged from the top of
the building to the ground, when
his heels caught on a wire from
which he was suspended as heI
swung into space. A net had
been spread to receive him also,
but by reason of the mishap in !
the air, he struck only the side
of it, falling heavily.
Both actors suffered internal
injuries and broken bones and,

Donizetti's comic opera, "The Elixir
of Love" will be presented in Hill
auditorium tomorrow night. It is
generally known through its Italian
name, "L 'elsir D' Amore." The
opera, as presented by the William
Wade Hinshaw company, is also noted

ure in singing the role of the corned-
ian Nemorino. The Hinshaw company
will present the opera in English;

The story of the opera concerns
a man in love, who drinks wine for

In the last few minutes of the game,

was stopped by Michigan's strong de-
fense, and scientific stalling. Captain

ROME, Jan. 9.- A violent earth-I
quake, which shook Tuscany for 121
seconds, causing casualties and prop-
erty damage, and a renewal of por-
tentous activity in Mt. Vesuvius mark-
ed a reawakening of Italy's seismic
and volcanic forces yesterday.
Both these phenomena are believed
to be the results of the same mysteri-
ous subterranean forces, which dur-
ing the past ten days in various parts
of the country have caused panic-
stricken crowds to flee as the earth
trembled or the famous volcano belch-
ed angrily.
The earthquake in Tuscany center-
ed in the region around Monte Amita,
and resulted in minor injuries to a
score of persons and damage to sev-
eral hundred peasant houses. The
first shock was felt at 10:15 o'clock,
and this was followed by a tremori
of smaller intensity. The quake in-
spired widespread terror, driving the
inhabitants of several villages from
their homes.

After spending a year in compara-

once war commisar of Soviet Russia,,
is again in power as a member of the

Trotzky, for he not only regained his
!place on the central committee, but
also saw the defeat of Leo Kameneff,

as war commissar a year ago.hIt is
understood that in the future he will'
follow party policies closely and ex-
pound the doctrines of strictly ortho-
