Italy Given Control Of Adriatic From
Virtual Protectorate Over
Albania, Is Pretest
(By Associated Press)I
LONDON, Dec. 7.-The conclusion1
of an Italo-Albanian pact which has
quickly brought about the fall of the
Jugoslav cabinet and seems to threat-
en a new embroilment in the pereni-1
annly troubled Balkans, is regarded
as essentially a matter for the League
of Nations, of which Albania is a mem-
It is regarded as an undoubted tri-
umph for Italian diplomacy, and for
that reason excites apprehension and
suspicion, not only in Jugoslavia, but
also in France and other countries,
for, by giving Italy a virtual protec-
torate over Albania, it isolates Jugo-
slavia and permits Italy to assume;
complete control in the Adriatic.
Although the pact is said to be of a
reciprocal nature guaranteeing inde-
pendence and territorial integrity for
Albania, its main purpose, from the
Italian viewpoint, is security in the
Adriatic and the encirclement of Jugo-
slavia by precluding Albania from
negotiating security pacts with either
Jugoslavia or Greece.
It is expected now that Jugoslaviaj
may turn to France, Hungary and Po-

land, and there is even talk of a com-
FENSE plete new grouping, which might even-
Itually bring about reconciliation be-
tween Jugoslavia and Bulgaria and the

physicians announce is necessary to
complete that performed yesterday.
They express the hope that the king
will be strong enough to undergo the
operation on Thursday.
The royal patient passed a good
night, and is reported to be progress-f
ing satisfactorily. When the sur-
geon, Professor Hartmann, was
operating yesterday, with the aid of a
local anaesthetic, the king puffed
complacently on his accustomed
lHe came through the operation in
excellent condition, and has since lost
none of his cheerfulness and courage.
The appelation "Ferdinand the be-
loved" is being popularized among his
subjects, hundreds of whom stand in
the cold, wind and rain, outside the
palace awaiting news of their ruler.
Illinois History Professor Believes
Moslem Countries Are Changing
The Same As Others
"Molsem countries are undergoing
much transformation, politically and
economically, as are the other parts
of the world," declared Prof. Albert
H. Lybyer, of the history department'
of the University of Illinois, in a lec-
ture upon the "Moslem Outlook in
West Asia" given in Natural, Science
auditorium at 4:15 o'clock yesterday.
Islamic lands have a greater and
more free field of action in their de-
velopment without interference from
the west than they have enjoyed for
centuries, is the opinion of Professor
Lybyer. Turkey has thrown off its
fetters of the west and is acting with
freedom and Persia is also pursuing
an independent way. "Nevertheless,
western ideas are growing vigorously
there and are being cultivated by all
the Moslem governments of the east,"
Professor Lybyer pointed out, "the
greatest being that there is a separa-
tion of the church and state, which
is an astounding liberality for the
Moslem religion which requires that
both the spiritual and temporal lead-
ers be identical."
Contemporary Turkish writers, in
stating the attitude of the Moslem
world toward the west, say that the
west represents "the happiest and
strongest life as compared to the lives
of Islamic peoples where divine com-
mands regulate social, political and
economic forms of activity," stated
Lybyer, "and the consensus of opinion
is that the Asian outlook must be re-
jected totally and the western outlook
be adopted in totality."
Professor Lybyer has had actual ex-
periences with the thought of the east,
having been professor of mathematics
at Robert college in Constantinople
for many years, and was selected by
the School of Religion to make this
lecture as a part of the seminar upon
"The Moral Issues in Modern Life."

PARIS, Dec. 7.-Trouble is brewing
over Italy's new treaty with Albania.
Jugoslavia is aflame with anger; her
foreign minister, Dr. Ninchitch, re-
signed last night as a protest, and
the whole cabinet followed his lead,
to attract the world's attention to
what he has rescribed as the "new and
grave situation," and what is gener-
ally regarded as a serious danger to
central European peace.

greatly disturbed over these events,

Specialist Claims Malad Was 1erely
Unconscious Ieans Of Escape (i
From War Terrorsc
"Shell shock, the over-worked bug-~
bear of the late war, was nothing morer
than a subconscious means of escape £
from an intolerable situation," said
Dr. Hugh T. Patrick of Chicago in his'
lecture last night in Natural Science
auditorium. "The ailment was at
times ascribed to those who had never
been at the front, and was but one of
the nervous reactions resulting from t
a combination of circumstances." t
Dr. Patrick, speaking on the topic,c
"The Nature and the Rational Treat-t
ment of Psychoneuroses," explained
that another from of this ailment ap-~
peared in the post-war tendency of
soldiers not adopting themselves to
the changes at home upon their re-
turn. He said that there were three
ways of meeting this situation, name-~
ly, to endure it, to revolt completely,
or to become the victim of ill health
or weak mind. Those who do revolt,
he stated, are branded by society ast
criminal, while those who endure thea
(strain are said to be normal. This
arbitrary restraint becomes more com-
plicated with increasing age, and con-!
stitutes the neurosis.
"Men are born liars, thieves, and
polygamists," said the speaker, "and
from birth their life is a struggle be-
tween instinct and duty. Fear is one
common expression of failure to bear
up. The case of a patient, nervous
and in ill health, may often be con-
nected with some earlier incident, and
when this is recalled to him a cure is
effected. Behavior rections find their
outlet in drunkenness, praying, pros-
tration and crime. Scientific treat-
ment is often-the most simple remedy.!
Tons of medicine are prescribed to
cure purely what are purely behavior-
Dr. Patrick was entertained at din-
ner at the Union before his lecture by
Alpha Omego Alpha, honorary medical
fraternity, under whose auspices he
was speaking.
Holding their annual joint meeting
preceding the Christmas holidays,
mree than 100 members of Alpha Nu,
Adelphi, Athena and Portia literary
and public speaking societies met 'in

of Angell hall last night.
The Line brothers, nfeld Line,

lustrated talk containing an account

Transfer of Ph~Ilipnes From Military
To Civil Branch of Government
Advised By Exeentive
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 7.-Conceding
that there should be no great amount
of new legislation during the present
session, President Coolidge laid be-
fore Congress today a long list of
recommendations in which temporary
tax relief and attention to the farm
marketing problem stood out promi-
To the House and Senate was left
the task of fitting the recommenda-
tions to the necessities of the limited
time at the disposal of th'e law-makers
before the 69th Congress goes out of
existence on March 4, next.' Inas-
much as Mr. Coolidge touched on al-
most every point of pressing national
interest, there can besnokquestion that
n goig about their task the Republi-
can leaders will have at hand the
desires of the chief executive.
Opposes Permanent Cut
While leaving the form of tax relief
to be decided by Congress itslf,
President Coolidge opposed any per-
manent reduction at this time, sug-
gesting that "it is possible' to grant
some relief by the simple measure of
making reduction in the payments
which acrue on the 15th of March and
As to farm relief, he asked a
"sound - solution" with the stipulation
that it was necessary to "avoid put-
ting the government into the business
of production or marketing or at-
tempting to enact legislation for the
purpose of price fixing."
The message, in addition to touch-
ing taxes and foreign problems listed
as desirable coal control legislation;
a Great Lakes to- the sea canal; re-
clamation development; railroad con-
solidation; adequate preparedness;
prohibition enforcement legislation;
branch banking laws; - radio- control
under the department of commerce, re-
turn of alien property; anti-lynching
laws; development of the Mississippi
and Colorado rivers; disposal of the
Muscle Shoals problems, and support
of the Geneva preliminary conference
and other movements for the reduc-
tion of armaments.
Steps to transfer the Phillipines
from the military to the civil branch
of the government was one of the
President's recomiiienations. Another
was that something be done "to end
the great inconvenience and expene"
caused by the lowering of the Great
Lakes. No mention was made of the
World Court, the President having an-
nounced he would not again submit
that question to the Senate.
-Reaffirms'Tariff Staid
Reaffirmation of ,his stand in favor
of the protective tariff, was included,
and pledge of economy on behalf of
the administration was made. The
reading of the message which required
an hour and ten minutes was accom-
panied by some noise on the floor of
the Senate, and at one point Senator
Harrison, Democrat, Mississippi, ask-
ed that order be restored on the Re-
publican side. The communication
itself was received with differing
emotions on the Republican and
Democratic sides but there was some
agreement that the two main sugges-
tions-foreign relations and tax regu-
lations-faced very dubious prospects
of enactment.
There are prospects of action of
some kind on several of the measures
touched upon in the message, such as
Muscle Shoals, alien property, radio
control, and a few others, but none
of the leaders expect any substantial
accomplishment at this session aside
from the passage of the appropria-
tion bills.
