Rukdediei torles Believed To Indicate
Opening Of New Phase Ili
Chinese War
(By Associated Press)
PEKIN, China, March 3.-The Kuo-{
minchun, or national armies, which
owe their origin to and still acknowl-
edge the leadership of Marshall Seng'
Yu-Hsiang, and which still control
Pekin and its surrounding province,'
Chihli, today were on the defensive,
on three major fronts. From two of
these cane reports of decisive Kuo-
minchun defeats.
In Honan Province and south of
Tientsin victories, for the Kuomin-s
chun's foes were reported, while on
the northern front, from Shanhaikwan,
the forces of Mukden have started an
advance. The Kuominchun claimed
success in a limited engagement south
of Tientsin.
On all three fronts the forces op-
posing each other are considered ap-I
proximately equal, and all are being
reinforced. Heavy fighting is believed,
to be imminent all around, especially
in the north and around Machang,
south of Tientsin.
Marshall Seng Yu-Hsiang, who an-
nounced a practical retirement from
public life after his capture of Tient-
sin last December, remains far from
the front, at Pintichuan, northwestern'
Chihli, although he is directing the
Kuominchun's dispositions.
Today's developments are consider-
ed to indicate the opening of a new
phase of the Chinese civil war, in
which concerted action by the en-
emies of Marshall Seng may place new
masters in the military capital.
In Honan Province, Marshall Wu
Pei-Fu, at the head of a Huteh army,I
apparently has ended a military dead- I
lock by a rapid advance north of the
Pekin-Hangkow railway to the Yellow
river. He has captured Cheng-Chow,
where the Lunghai railway, an east
and west line, joins the Pekin-Hang-
kow trunk, and compelled the second
Kuominchun, under General Yuieh Wi-
Chun, governor of Honan and ally of
Marshall Seng, to retire across the
river, destroying the railway line at
the bridge in his flight.

Wants Better Plays;
Wants Retter


(13y Associated Press)
NEW YORK, March 3.-Representa-
tives of both the, church and theater
agreed tonight that the reform within
the theater was of vital interest to
both institutions, and could be best
brought about by cooperation between
Speakers at a dinner given by the
Federal Council of Churches of Christ
in America to representatives of
church and drama, said that the
church leaders should actively sup-
port plays of which they could ap-
prove. Thebchurch representatives
asked for better plays; representa-
tives of the theater asked for better
audiences before which to present
their plays.
Arguing for theater reform, the Rev.
George R. Andrews, representative of
the committee on drama of the federal
council, said that such reform should
come from within. Many people, he
said, t1hink only in terms of law and
censorship legislation, but asserted
that the less legislating done in the
regulation of art, education, and re-
ligion, the better for civilization.
"We can throw the weight of our
influence on the side of those per-
sons and groups, especially those in-
side the theater, working for better
things," he said. "This course recom-
mends itself to us for trial, and I be-
lieve will prove effective in applica-
tion. If you agree with us we want
you of the theater, and interested in
the theater, to think with us and work
with us toward a practical program
of action."

Past Year Shows Steady Progress In
Electrical Development, Bailey Says

Continuous progress has been made
in the practical application of .elec-
trical apparatus during the la't year
in the opinion of Prof. B. J. bailey,
head of the electrical engineering de-
partment, who was interviewed in re-
gard to the publication of the Gen-
eral Electric company on "Develop-
ments in the Electrical Industry dur-
ing 125."
Chief among the advances made,
said Professor Bailey, was the appli-
cation of the gas electric engine to
rapid transit railways and to motor
busses. The latter met with much
favor with the electric railroads which
are organizing bus service, following
the initial trial by the Philadelphia
Rural Transit company. During 1925,1
more than 300 gas electric busses
were placed in service in nine cities.
Of importance to the automotive

field was the development of a new
supercharger, which is a modification
of the type originally designed for
high altitude airplanes. Although sup-
erchargers have been used for a num-
ber of years, it was not until 1925
that pr ctically all racing cars were
so equippied. First places in both the
500 mile race at Indianapolis and the
250 mile contest at Altoona were won
by Peter De Paolo with a Dusenburg
car equipped with this new centrifu-
gal supercharger.
Notable applications of electrical
equipment were also made in shipping
industry with the electric turbine
and Diesel-electric propelling appara-
tus. Toward the close of the year,
a contract was placed with the New-
I port News company for the construc-
tion of the largest liner ever built in
an American shipyard with specifica-
I tions for electric propulsion.

Two Weeks Care I N Walte Reed
Hospital Brings General Back
To Normal
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, March 3.-The con-
dition of Gen. John J. Pershing, after'
two weeks' treatment by medical -and
dental specialists in Walter Reed hos-
pital, tonight had returned to normal.
He was in better general health than!
he has enjoyed for several years.
The general's rapid and complete
recovery, however, has not been with-
out its heroic features. For one thing
he has lost all his teeth at the hands
of dental surgeons. He also has tol-

well, in a reduction in blood pressure
from 185 points to between 140 and

pleased over the recovery their pa-
tient has made, are determined to ex-
ercise every precaution they know to
keep him fit. He will remain in hos-
pital quarters for some time to per-
mit a continual observation and re-
ceive the added benefit with the rest
and quiet that goes with the enforce-
nient of military regulations at Wal-

LOS ANGELES, March 3.-Several
new discoveries throwing additional
light on an ancient race have been
made at Pueblo Grande d Nevada,
the buried city of Nevada.
The archeological finds were de-
scribed here by Gov. J. C. Scrughan,
who has followed with interest the
excavating work in his state. They
include tile remains of the works
where these ancient people obtained
their salt, ledges where they mined i
for ornaments, and remnants of
clothing indicating familiarity with
the use of cotton.
"The salt was dug from a series of
caverns a short distance from the
buried city," Governor Scrugham
said. "Some of the walls and floors
of these caves are formed in part of
pure rock salt and here the ancients
conducted their salt mining. The
workings, showing where large blocks
of salt were removed are in the same
condition of about 2,000 years ago.I
"One of the relics was a pair of
Ssandals of a type never before found
in this country. They are in a good
state of preservation and were made
of deer hide and equipped with cotton
cords for fastening."
Only traces of turquoise workings
have been uncovered as most of the
t work of excavators has been directed
toward the salt mines.


War Department Proposes
Building l'rogram For
Air Service

Five Year

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, March 3. -- The
numerous proposals which have aris-
en out of the turmoil of discussion
over revision of the national defense
to give increased recognition to avia-
tion were thrown into the discard to-
day by the House military committee.
In rapid succession, it disapproved
the proposals for a department of na-
tional defense, a unified air service,
and a separate air corps in the army,
and then voted to dIraft an all-embrac-
ing bill of its own to provide for a
larger air service, but one that would
harmonize with the defense organiza-
tion as it now exists.
The committee made clear, in an-
nouncing its plan, that it would give
creased expenditure of $30,000,000 an-
building program for the army air
service, made public during the day by
the war department.
The program, as endorsed by Sec.
Dwight Davis, contemplates an in-
creased expediture of $30,000,000 an-
nually for the air service, and at the
end of five years would provide 2,200
new airplanes. The House naval com-
mittee recently approved a five-year
program for the naval air service
which involved a total expenditure of
$85,000,000, and was designed to pro-
vide 1,000 new planes at the end of
the period.
The military committee voted 11 to
10 against the bill to establish' a de-
partment of national defense in which
land, sea, and air armaments would
be given co-equal status, and 16 to 5
against a unified air service. The vote
against a separate air corps in the
army, which was endorsed by Maj.
Gen. Mason M. Patrick, army air chief,
was 15 to 6.
A -bill started by the war depart-
ment, to carry out recommendations
of the president's air board, also was
rejected, 11 to 10. Chairman Morin
of the committee explained this plan
was rejected on the ground that it
did not go far enough in proposing
changes that a majority of members
considered necessary for aim adequate
air service.
Under the war department plan an-
nounced today, the army air service
at the end of five years, besides hav-
ing 2,200 planes would posess5 aper-
sonnel of 1,650 regular army officers,
550 reserve officers on active duty, and
15,000 enlisted men, including 500 fly-
ing cadets. The expansion would not
be effected through reductions in othr
branches of the army.
Secretary Davis, in announcing this
program, said it had been furnished
the department by Chaiman Morin,
and had been drafted with the recom-
mendatious of the air board in mind.
At the same time, he announced the
department's disapproval of a bill in-
troduced by Representative James, of
Michigan, a Republican on the mili-
tary committee, designed to carry out
recommendations of the Lassiter
board for a ten-year expansion pro-
gram for the air service.
LANSING, March 3. -- Governor
Groesbeck today submitted a second
message to the special session of the
legislature opening the way for an in-
vestigation of the state pardon and
parole system, recommending approp-
riations for the new Jickson prison
and the proposed women's training
school at Okemos, and permitting the
appointment of a legislative commis-
sion to investigate the disposition of
funds turned over to the American
Legion for welfare work.
Altogether, the governor submitted
nearly a score of additional matters
Ithat the legislature may consider.
The bills covering the subjects in-
eluded in his message- were mostly
ready, and a flood of them descended
ion both branches the moment his
message was read.
