iMiade By RI'osevelt
"Uncle Sam is marked down in
Japan's books as a boor," said Dr.
Galen M. Fisher of New York city,
noted orientalist, lecturing yesterday
on "The Moral Issues in the Relations
of Japan with America," under the
auspices of the Michigan School of
Religion. The speaker said, "The re-
cent Immigration Act was passed
without consulting Japan, thus break-
ing the gentleman's agreement initiat-
ed in 1907-08 by President Roosevelt."1
The breach of faith was reflected
in a diminution of the original fervor
in the ranks of the Japanese liberals,
who had been inspired by the pre-war
idealism of President Wilson. The
speaker indicated that America's at-
titude during the World War had dis-
illusioned the Eastern liberals re-
garding the president's teachings, and
that when their faith in the sincerity
of American asseverations was about!

brought up at a meeting tomorrow.

Speaker Will Tell Story Of Thirteen
Expeditions Whieh Are Being
Planned At Present
Supplementing his lecture on "Abol-
ishing the Arctic" with a discussion
of the many polar expeditions now
in progress and those being planned
for the near future, Vilhjalmur Ste-
fansson, Arctic explorer and lecturer,
will deliver the first of a series of
lectures planned by the Student coun-
cil to arouse interest in the Burton
Memorial campanile, at 8 o'clock to-
night in Hill auditorium.
Thirteen expeditions to the polar
regions are either in progress at the
present time or ae being planned to
take place within the next year. These
will be discussed by the speaker with
special emphasis being placed on
their purpose, the territory which
they plan to cover, their personnel,
and the possibilities of the success of
Studies Eskimo Life

Stefinsson, who has spent 13 sum
mers and 10 wintems in the Arctic,
will also describe his many and varied
experiences encountered during his
northern explorations. The Eskimo
will receive much attention in the
presentation of his subject. Stefans-
son lived among the Eskimos who
inhabit the region around the Mac-
Kenzie river durimg tithe winter of
1906-07, and at that time he made a
close study of their life and habits
and also of their language.f He is
one of the few white men who has
masteredI the difficult andi multitudi-
nous dialects which go to make up
the so-called Blond Eskimos.
The explorer led his first expedi-
tion during the years 1s08-1. At that
time, he continued the study of the
Eskimos which he had started the
year before. Those living on the o-
rinthian gulf received the greater part
of his attention, many of the tribes
among which he lived never before
having seen a white man. These are
the so-called Blond skimos.
It was on his second expedition,
1913, that he succeeded in establish-
ing a theory which had always up
until that time been considered ab-
surd. He had maintained for many
years that it would be possible to go
into the polar regions and depend on
the seals and other polar animals as
a source of food. This was consider-
ed as being impossible by most sci-
entists and explorers, among them
being Admiral Robert E. Peary, who
has since acknowledged the practic-
ability of such a scheme.
On this second expedition, Stefans-
son made his way with both his men
and dogs across 700 miles of floating
ice-cakes, depending entirely upon
the seals which were shot or har-
pooned as a food supply. Before that,
it had always been considered neces=
sary that sufficient food be taken
along to last for the duration of the
I The establishing of this theory of
"living off the country" has become
E famous, since it makes it possible for
man to explore regions never before
visited, and since it greatly reduces
the amount of work and expense ne-
cessary to prepare for an expedi-
Fihds New Lands
Stefansson, although he will prob-
ably always be remembered because
of the establishment of this theory,
will also go down in history as the
discoverer of four large islands. Dur-
I ing the five years following his see-
ond entrance into the Northland, lie
discovered Borden, Brock, Lougheed,
and Meighan islands. He also mapped
large sections of territory which ha
never before been graphed correctly.
The speaker will be introduced by
President Clarence Cook Little, who
heartily endorses the plan for rais-
ing funds for the Burton Memorial
campanile. The entire proceeds of
the lecture will be turned over to the
fund since Stefansson has donated
his services for the evening.
Tickets were placed on sale on the
campus yesterday and they will also
be on sale today. The State street
and down town book stores also have
a supply of the tickets, priced at $1
for the main floor and $.75 for the
