Local And Naval Authorities Concede
30 Chinese Demands In Efforts
To Avoid Clashes.
(By Associated Press
LONDON, Jan. 6.-For the first
time since its creation as a little Eng-
lish city on the Yangtse river in 1861,1
Hankow appears to be slipping from
British control into the grip of Chin-
ese nationalists. After a night of un-
relaxed tension, the outgrowth of the
anti-British activities in the Yahgtse
region, all the British women and
children in Hankow were taken
aboard vessels for Shanghai, whilel
the men of the British concession were
concentrated in two buildings.
Late dispatches from the Hankow
district indicate that the situation con-
tinues most grave with the local Brit-
ish naval and civil authorities strain-
ing every effort to avert clashes and
yielding to the Chinese to an extent
which a few years ago would not have
been dreamed of-all because it is
realized that the smallest provocative
spark might start blazes of uncon-
trollable nationalist disorder.
Police Disarm.
Following upon the action of the'
British in withdrawing their marines
on Tuesday, all the volunteer policeI
forces have been disarmed and the
Chinese population left free to cir-]
culate at will in the British quarter.
The British are relying on the pledge
of Eugene Chen, the Cantonese for-
eign minister, of full esponsibility
-for law and order withiff the conces-
sion. Chen has insisted that the Can-
tonese military forces will be able to
maintain order in the district which

MADISON, Jan. 6.-A teacher's
opinion, however widely it may differ
from the politicalwbeliefof the state
chief executive, cannot be made the
subject of university discipline at
the University of Wisconsin, President,
Glenn Frank declared today.
Governor J. J. Blaine and United
States Senator-elect, recently attacked
as a "hodge-podge of lies, half-truths
and misrepresentations," the tax cate-
cism issued by Professor Ford H.
MacGregor of the university. Presi-
dent Frank said the governor's remark
carried the implication that Professor
MacGregor had two courses open-
either retraction or resignation fromj
the university.
"In the absence of Professor Mac-
Gregor taking either of these courses,
the governor implied that the duty of
the president of the university was
"As long as I am president of the
university," President Frank said,
"complete academic freedom will notf
only be accorded to members of fac-

er, or the prestige that may accomp-1
any any challenge of this inalienable
right of fellowship."
Dr. Cyrus C. Sturgis Of Harvard Will

Professor Of Medicine
Dr. Cyrus C. Sturgis, assistant pro-
fessor in the Harvard Medical school,
will come to the University to accept'
a position as director of the Simpson
Memorial Institute and professor of,
internal medicine as a result of action
taken last night by the Regents. Dr.
Sturgis was named by an unanimous I
vote of the department heads of the
Medical school, and according to a re-
port received by President Clarence
Cook Little, will come to Ann Arbor
in July.

ages ago in the quicksands of Mon
golia, Roy Chapman Andrews well
known naturalist and Asiatic explor-
er, delivered the sixth of the series
of lectures on the annual Oratorical
Association lecture series last night in
Hill auditorium.
The vast country, more than half
as large as the entire United States,
was first explored by the expedition,
which was sent by the American Mu-
seum of Natural History, under Mr.
Andrew's direction, in 1921. Seeking
to establish the theory, held by Os-
Smun 23 years ago, that central Asia is
the cradle of the human race, the
party of 14 Anericans, with its Chin-
ese assistants, went from Pekin to
Kalgan, a distance of 140 miles, by
rail, and then proceeded 700 miles
further into the trackless wastes of
Mongolia by motor and caravan.
Mongolia Oldest Land.
The Gobi, a bed rock desert that
covers a large part of Mongolia, was
the location of most of the excavations,
I although the grasslands which sur--
round it were also explored The
principal reason for supposing this to
be the location of the origin of man
is because it has been a dry land con-
tinent for the longest period of time,
the speaker explained. Years before
America and Europe rose above the
level of the sea the region of Mongo-
lia was high and habitable. This
fact, added to the knowledge that
Mongolia is approximately the cen-
ter of the land area of the world, Is
the chief reason for befieving that man
first existed there. Mr. Andrews be-
lieves that the findings of his expedi-
tion establish this point more firmly
than ever before.
The principal findings of the party
were at the base of the Flaming Cliff,
so named because of its brilliant red
color, and it was here that the dino-
saur eggs, the first ever uncovered,
were found. There was no design on
thq part of the excavators to find these
eggs, in fact they "were not even sure
that dinosaurs laid eggs," Mr An-
drews said, but, by accident, while
digging for other remains, one was
uncovered and later two nests, one
of fourteen and another of twelve,
were discovered.
"There is no doubt as to the fact
that these remains are actually dino-
saur eggs," the speaker explained,
I "because tiny dinosaurs are actually
I in two of them." Near one of the de-
posits was found the skeleton of a
small animal of this species that was
I evidently feeding upo, the eggs when
I overtaken by a sandstorm and buried.
A picture, showing a restoration of
the scene twenty-five million years
ago, was shown by Mr. Andrews.
Many of the specimens were dug out
in large blocks of rock, and the ex-
plorers were not aware of the nature
of their discoveries -until they were
removed here.
' Among the most important of the
other remains discovered were those
I of the largest mammals ever to ex-
ist, the mammoth. Parts of one of
these beasts were found standing up-
right where the animal had evidently
been caught in quicksands ages before.
Remains also of large carniverous
beasts were found, and pictures were
F shown of the remains themselves and
also of imaginary. restorations.
In the area explored, were also
found innumerable evidences of-a pre-
vious civilization, both In the Nean-
derthal and Paleolithic ages. The
similarity of these remains to thoe
found in Europe from about the same
, periods establishes beyond doubt, in

common source, or that the inhabitants
