NDefending Northern Troops Were
Either Taken Prisoners Today or f
Are Fleeing Disorganized 1
(By Associated Press)1
HANKOW, China, Oct. 12.-Execu-
tion in the streets of Wuchang of some
northern soldiers charged with looting
marked the assumption of control by
the Cantonese Red forces who have1
beseiged the city more than 4 days.1
The defending northern troops are
either prisoners today or are fleeing
disorganized, many of them in dis-
guise as civilians. 1
General Liu Yu Chun, who directed
the defense of the city, and Chen Kia-
Mu, former military governor of
Hupeh province, are prisoners. 1
The former probably will be tried
by court martial. It is believed neith-
er will be executed. Liu Yu Chun
sought safety under the American
flag, hiding in the home of Doctor A.
M. Sherman, principal of the Cetral
China university. A servant betrayed
him. Chen Kia-Mu was captured
while endeavoring to escape disguised
as a coolie.
Seeking hidden soldiers of the cap-
itulated northern troops, the victori-
ous Cantonese searched all mission
buildings and the foreign quarters.
Mimes Will Start
"S. S. Glencairn"
1Ticket Sale Friday
Tickets for the Mimes production
of Eugene O'Neill's "S. S. Glencairn"
which will be given in Mimes theater
on October 19, 20, and 21 will be plac-
ed on sale in the box office of the
theater on Friday afternoon at 2
o'clock. Seats may also be obtained
after that date by telephoning the Un-
ion and asking for the Mimes theater
box office. Mail orders may be sent
in now and will be filled in the order
of their receipt. Last year the tickets
for all campus dramatic productions
were placed on sale in the book stores,
but to avoid the confusion resulting
from this practice, the tickets for
these plays will be sold only from the
Mimes theater office.
The "S. S. Glencairn" was the last
play of last year's and played to ca-
pacity houses for three scheduled per-
formances and gne extra showing. It
was decided to revive the same series
of plays for the first campus dramatic
production of this year, since the play
was turning away patrons at its last
performance. The cast which is prac-
tically the same will be announced lat-

Aviator Commend Scientifie Work of
Hobbs Greenland Expedition and
of Koelz With ilfac)lilla
Depicting with the aid of motion
pictures the rigors of the first flight
beer the North Pole, Lieutenant-Comn-
mander Richard E. Byrd opened the
annual Oratorical association lecture
series last night in Hill auditorium.
Com. Byrd opened the lecture with
a brief record of previous attempts to
'reach the pole by air, the first of
'which was made in 1898 in a free bal-
loon by Andre, a Frenchman. In 1908
another attempt was made, this time
in a dirigible, by Wellman, and then
there were no attempts until recently
when Amundsen made his two unsuc-
cessful trials to reach the goal. Mr.
Byrd was a member of the MacMillan
expedition to Etah, Greenland, in th
summer of 1925, in which he hadt
charge of the navy squadron of planes
which attempted to find new lands in
the region.
. No attempt was made to reach the
'pole from this base, although a great
eal of scientific work was accomplish-
ed, notably that of Dr. Walter M.
IKoelz now of this University, for
whom Mr. Byrd had the highest praise.
'He also commended highly the work
of Professor William H1. Hobbs, who
has done a great deal of scientific
work in the North, although not with
this expedition.
Plan Flight
After this expedition was completed,
'plans were immediately undertaken
for the flight to the pole. A giant
'Fokker plane, with three motors de-
veloping 600 "horepower, was secured
through private interests and on April
'5 of this year the party set out from
'New York.
The decision had already been made
to start from Spitzbergen rather than
Etah, Peary's base, because due to
the flow of the Gulf stream the harbor
at King's Bay. Spitzbergen, offered
the farthest north open harbor in the
world. It was necessary to build a
raft on four lifeboats, lashed together,
to carry the plane ashore in that man-
ner -at great hazard and effort.
Plane Is Assembled
After considerable difficulty the
plane was assembled and made ready
for the flight, and at 12:30 o'clock on
the morning of May 9 the aviators,
Com. Byrd with his companion, Ben-
nett, left Spitzbergen for the pole.
It is 650 miles from the starting
point at King's Bay to the North Pole
and the whole round-trip flight was
made in a little over 15 hours.
At 9:02 in the morning the pole was
reached. The return flight was im-
mediately begun and at about four in
the afternoon the plane landed at
Spitzbergen and the announcement
was made to the world.
Combining mimicry with clever
lyrical numbers, Elsie Janis, well
known actress and vaudeville enter-
tainer, will appear at 8 o'clock to-
morrow night at Hill auditorium. Miss
Janis is bringing four excellent art-
ists with her and the combination
should provide a fine program. Tic-
kets are on sale at Wahr's book store
or may be purchased at the door. The
Ann Arbor group of University o

Michigan women are responsible for
bringing Miss Janis and they are
planning to give the proceeds of the
venture to the Women's league fund.

Arrangements Made
I For Senior Pictures
Arrangements have been completed
by the 'Ensian staff for the taking the
individual pictures of the members
of the Senior Class for the 1927 Mich-
iganensian. It is urged that all those
who expect to graduate this year buy
their. order slips at the Michigan-
ensian office and make appointments
for their sittings as soon as possible.
Before making an appointment for a
picture each senior must first go to
the business office in the Press build-
ing on Maynard street, which is open
every afternoon from 2 to 5 o'clock,
fill out an activity card, and pay $3
for the order to be photographed. One
dollar of this goes to the year book
to help pay for the engraving and
printing, and the balance goes to the
photographer when he delivers a sat-
isfactory picture to the Michiganen-
sian. Two dollars will be allowed by
the photographer on a private order

for additional photographs. The of-
ficial studios are Dey, Randal, Rent-
'schler, and Spedding. Only prints
from these studios will be acceptable.
It is urged that this.work be started
immediately by every member of the
senior class.

Opposition To V. S. Debt Settlement
Grows In Chamber Of Deputies
Following Demonstrations
(By Associated Press)
PARIS, Oct. 12.--The Poincare gov-
ernment today introduced a budget
in the Chamber of Deputies, which,
for the first time since the World
war shows an apparent surplus.
PremierPoincare estimated that the
total exepnditures for 1927 would be
39,382,000,000 francs while receipts
would be 39,960,000,000. Under the
government's plan, the surplus of 578,-
000,000 will be utilized to speed up
home production, especially in wheat,
to obviate the necessity of importing
from countries having a high ex-
Debt Payments Provided
Appropriations for payment on the
foreign debt are provided for to the
amount of 2,375,000,000 francs, of
which 1,500,000,000 is expected to come
from reparation payments.
In introducing the budget, Premier
Poincare remarked that the sinking
fund commission, during the year, will
have at its disposal 6,174,000,000
francs to reduce the public debt. The
finance minister also notified Parlia-
ment that at the proper time he will
introduce indispensable measures for
the stabilization of French money.
Nothing could be said in advance of
the nature of these measures, the
finance minister said, because of the
fact that such information would fa-
cilitate speculation in exchange.
Calculate Payments
The sum inscribed in the budget
for the foreign debt payment are cal-
culated and a rate of 150 francs to the
pound and 31 to the dollar. The pre-
mier pointed out that there were two
important maturities during the year;
3,018,000,000 credit national recon-
struction bonds, due in February, and
4,587,000,000 treasury bonds due on
Sept. 25. The premier said that these
sums have not been inscribed in the
budget because they would entail too
great a burden on the tax payers. le
intimated that in due time the gov-
ernment will resort to consolidation,
which it has been authorized to do
by Parliament, in order to cover these

PARIS, Oct. 12.-A wave of pes-s
simism concerning ratification of the
Washington debt settlements tonighto
submerged the lobby of the Chamber d
of Deputies. Tomorrow the financef
committee will consider the entiret
The special committee, which has
been investigating the agreement, has y
finished its work. It makes neitherc
criticism nor recommendation regard-I
ing the Mellon-Berenger agreement,t
contenting itself with a general clear-
ing up of the principal points involved.
During the afternoon it was saidI
that many members of both thei
finance and foreign relations commit-
tees were adverse to considering thej
question at all until after the Ameri-I
can election.t
Ratification Tendency Turns 1
The tendency which was strongly
towards ratification ten days ago has
turned decidedly since the deputiesa
began to return from the provinces
for the present session in greater
numbers. The predictions now are"
that the government will have a hard
time to get the agreement ratified. /
M. Franklin-Bouillon, chairman of!
the foreign relations committee of the
chamber, vehemently expressed the
opinion in the lobby today that the l
Washington settlement will never be
ratified as it stands. He declared al-
so that the government probably will'
not demand ratification ,without
Soldiers Change Sentiment
This change in sentiment on the!
part of many deputies is said to be}
due largely to the recent action of the
ex-soldiers in protesting against
France assuming too great a burden
in the question of debt. The pro-
nouncement of some leaders in the
Republican union group in the chain-
ber, to which Louis Marin, minister
of pensions belongs, also are felt to
be responsible.
These leaders have declared that
their group will vote against ratifica-
tion, minus perhaps only one voice
which is supposed to be that of M.

Vice-President Denounces Indifference
Shown by Americans to Danger a
That Besets the Governmentf
(By Associated Press)
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 12.- Vice-t
president Dawes and General Persh-
ing, one a crusader in the realm of
politics, the other a leader in war,t
both members of the American Legion,
greeted and addressed the formerf
nembers of the American Expedition-a
ary forces in annual convention today.
The vice-president denounced indif-t
ference shown by Americans to theI
langer that beset the government, the
greatest of which, he said, was indif-
ference itself.C
Pershing Makes Short Speech
The general, the first to greet thet
legionnaries, made a happy \little
speech in which he said it was im-
portant to the "boys" to see that theirt
representatives in their local com-I
munities were "fine, upstanding, alert,t
honest men, intelligent and efficient,I
and not slackers or demagogues." t
Vice-president Dawes was applaud-l
ed when he declared he believed that
the primary system in elections
should be "largely abolished." 1
"If we follow the theory and plan1
of representative government laid
down in our constitution by providing
for nomination by convention, a bet-..
ter and more impartial class of candi-
dates will result," he said.
"But even if the primary system1
was abolished," he added, "an in-
crease in the impartial voting in the
United States is the crying need of
the hour."
Dawes Decries Indifference
"If the American government is to
be a success, the American people
must vote," Mr. Dawes declared. "In-
difference in the attitude of the
American public towards the fran-
chise is the greatest existing menace
to American institutions. It is tend-
ing to substitute government by ag-
gressive and interested minorities for
government by the people. Especially
is this the case in state, county and
city elections."
General Pershing told the legion-
naires he came only to' say 'how-do-
you-do', shake hands, look into your
faces and review the parade."
The invitation of the government of
France for the American Legion to
hold next year's convention in Paris
was reviewed today when a series of
messages from the President of
France, the Premier, the Minister of
Foreign affairs, Marshal Foch, and
others were read to the delegates.
The question of going to Paris next
year has agitated American Legion
officials for some time and it is un-
lierstood the matter will not be set-
tled without a contest.

English Prelate Declares Belief In
Evolution And Upholds Stand Of
Church In World War
Five 'questions asked him by stu-
dents of the University wer answered
by Rt. Rev. Arthur Foley Winnington-
Ingram, Lord Bishop of London, in
his speech before the Michigan School
of Religion yesterday afternoon in
Natural Science auditorium. The
questions were taken from among
those asked of him at the close of his
talk on "Why I am a Christian," given
at the faculty-student mixer on Mon-
day night.
The first question which the Bishop
discussed was "Is it really true that
reigion and science are opposed to
each other?" In answer to this, Dr.
Ingram stated that "No educated man
holds this opinion today. The story
which the Bible tells of Adam and
Eve, is merely a picture way of de-
scribing the creation of man. Every
educated Christian believes in evolu-
tion; the records which we find in the
rocks are as much the word of God
as is the Bible." The famous prelate
further stated that he believed man
to be the most perfect thing which
God ever created, and that those peo-
ple who accepted any definite state-
ment regarding the time when the
creation of man took place, were en-
tirely too credulous.
Astronomy Mentioned
"As for those who believe that as-
tronomy is opposed to the idea of
Christianity, nothing could be further
from the truth," he continued. "In
astronomy, the ind is drawn on to
believe in the existence of God, rather
than the reverse. The stars could no
more throw themselves into an order-
ly arrangement than could a box of
letters throw themselves into a play
of Shakespeare."
Answering the question "Why has
the Church always favored capital
against labor," Bishop .Ingram stated
'that despite the fact that there is some
truth in that statement, the church
has not always opposed labor, in fact,
the Church of England is in hot water
now because it has taken the side of
the coal miners in their strike in
England., "The church, at present,
wishes to maintain an entirely fearless
attitude and act independently regard-
less of what class may be injured or
Defends World War
In defending the church's support-
ing the World war, Bishop Ingram
stated that it was a question of pro-
tecting "the child from the bully who
had pledged to protect the child,"
rather than a question of 'aggression.
"It is the greatest Christian duty to
bring all the nations of the world to-
gether, including your own country, of
course, and get them to agree to bring
every disagreement before and arbi-
tration tribunal."
On the question of the reconcilia-
tion between the Anglo and the Roman
Catholic churches, the Bishop stated
that he could see no prospect of a
reconciliation in the near future.
Considers Doubt No Sin
The last question, concerning the
manner in which "doubters" should
be considered, was answered by the
Lord Bishop in a few words. "I don't
consider doubting any sin at all; the
classic example of the way to treat
doubters, is in the treatment of St.

Thomas by Christ. In time, Thomas
saw the light, and fell down before
Christ acknowledging him as his Lord
and God."
Last night, the Lord Bishop had din-
ner with the Episcopal Students' club
in Harris hall, afterwards attending
Commander R. E. Byrd's lecture in
Hill auditorium.
At noon today, Bishop Ingram will
have luncheon with members of St.
Andrew's Episcopal church at Harris
hall, following which he will give a
short talk. The Lord Bishop will be
the guest at an informal tea and re-
ception at 4 o'clock in the main as-
sembly room of the Union.
The general public has been invited.
