Britain Rushes Troops To Defense Of
Chief Commercial City Against
Cantonese Nationalists
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 26. - The
Washington government is ready to
negotiate new treaties with, China,
acting independently of powers if need
be,sbut cannt abrogatesexisting trea-
ties until new ones have been
signed and ratified by the Senate.
Meantime it is holding naval forces
available In Chinese waters to protect
American life and property should
Chinese authorities fail to accord
such protection.
This is the substance of Secretary
Kellogg's long deferred expression of
Chinese policy, made public here to-
night and timed for simultaneous pub-
lication in Peking, Hankow and
Shanghai. It asserts American sym-
pathy with China's "nationalistic
awakening"; strict neutrality as be-
tween Chinese factions; and a desire
to deal with China ins "a most liberal
spirit" regarding unequal treaties.
All that is demanded for Americans
in China, the statement said, is pro-
tection and equal treatment with
other foreign nationals in the right
to pursue legitimate occupations
"without special privileges, monopo-
lies or spheres of special interest or
"The only question is with whom it
(the Washington government) shall
negotiate," Secretary Kellogg said.
"If China can agree upon the appoint-
ment of delegates representing the
authorities of the people of the coun-
try, we are prepared to negotiate
,such a treaty.'
Specifically as to the present Chin-v
ese customs treaty, the secretary de-
lared that the United States "is now
and has been since the Washington
conference ready to negotiate with
any government of China or delegates
who can represent or speak for China

LONDON, Jan. 26.-The race for!
Shanglai, prize city of the Orient, is
on between the British armyl and
navy and the Chinese - nationalists.
The Cantonese conquest of the great
international settlement at the mouth
of the Yangtse must be accomplished
within six weeks if the Cantonese are
to avoid clashing with the British
defense force of 20,000 men who are
hurriedly leaving or will soon leave
'English ports, Malta or India. Forty
thousand foreigners reside in China
and= many foreign refugees from all
parts of China now are gathered there.
It is repeatedly emphasized by the
British foreign office, however, that
there would be no clash between the
British and Cantonese unless British
lives and property in Shanghai are
endangered. The British defense
force will make an effort to prevent
the Cantonese from entering and oc-
cupying the city of Shanghai.
The British maintain that the ques-
tion of the control of Chekiang prov-
ince, right up to the limits of Shang-
hai's international settlement, is a
problem to be settled by the attack-
ing forces of General Chiang Kaik

Parking On State Street For Sends Six Representatives To

Determined to uphold the tradition
of wearing the freshman pot, the Stu-
dent council, at its regular meeting
last night, adopted a resolution pro-
viding for the strict enforcement of
the regulation by all members of the
class of '30. It was pointed out that
a large number of freshmen this year
have been lax in the wearing of toques'
or pots.
In accordance with the council's
action last night, any freshman found!
guilty of violating the tradition in
the future will be summoned before a'
sepcial committee composed of coun-
cil members and officers of the fresh-
man class and immediately subjected
to disciplinary measures.
Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 23
and 24, were fixed by the council as
class dues days; during which time
treasurers of all classes in the Uni-
versity will make atconcentrated drive
towards the collection of dues, pay-
ments to be made at tables stationed~
in various campus buildings. .

It has been tentatively decided by
the general committee not to broad-
cast the J-Hop program this year. The
expense which would of necessity have
to be entailed to broadcast would be
much greater than in former years.
The price asked for the broadcasting
this year is *prohibitive, in the opinion
of the committee.
The actual decorating of the gym-
nasiums for the Hop will not begin
until three days before the party, it
has been announced. The decorations
have been designed by professional
decorators and the installation of the
materials will be entirely in their
hands. In former years students usu-
ally have taken part in the designing
and installation of decorations. t

Final Action On Arrangement Is Taken
At Meeting Of Coaches Friday
In Chicago, Yost Says
Football schedules covering 'all
games in the Big Ten for four years
were announced yesterday by con-
ference officials. A statement by
Fielding H. Yost lists all 'Michigan
games with conference teams from
1927 to 1930 inclusive. The arrange-
ment was compiled through a series
of agreements made since the Direc-
tor's meeting in December. The four
year schedule was finally approved
at a meeting of conference coaches
held last Friday in Chicago, Coach
Yost said last night.
Iowa and Purdue are placed on the
Michigan schedule in 1928 and 1929,
respectively, and the annual games
with Ohio State and Illinois are con-
tinued. Minnesota will not meet the
Wolverines in 1928, but will play them
at Minneapolis in 1929 and at Ann
Arbor in 1930. Chicago is omitted
from the 1928 schedule, but will play
at Ann Arbor in 1929. Wisconsin is
not to meet Michigan after 1928, when
they will come to Ann Arbor.
No non-conference games are an-
nounced, except that the Navy will
play at Ann Arbor this fall and at
Baltimore in 1928. Other games will,
of course, be arranged later, and it
is indicated that an eastern contest
may be scheduled in 1930, if desired.
This fall, as previously announced,
the Wolverines will travel to Chicago
for the first time since the fatal game
with Northwstern in /1925. Ohi
State, Minnesota, Michigan State, and
Ohio Wesleyan will play in the new
Michigan stadium, and Illinois and
Wisconsin will fill the out of town
In 1928, Iowa will come to Ann
Arbor for the first game since the
Hawkeyes defeated Michigan in the
last game of the 1924 season.
Purdue will play the Wolverines at
Lafayette in 1929 and at Ann Arbor
the following year. This is the first
time the Boilermarkers have been
scheduled during Coach Yost's ad-
ministration here, the last game being
played in 1900.
The schedules as completed for all
conference games are as follows:
At Ann Arbor:-Ohio State, Minne-
sota, and U. S. Navy.
Away-Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa.
At Ann Arbor-Wisconsin, Illinois,
Away-Ohio State, U. S. Navy.
At Ann Arbor-Ohio State, Iowa,
Away-Minnesota, Illinois, Purdue.
At Ann Arbor-Minnesota, Illinois,
Away-Ohio State, Iowa, and an
eastern game if desired.
Final rehearsals were held yester-
day for the farce-melodrama "Seven
Keys To Baldpate" by George M.
Cohan, which will be presented at
8:15 o'clock tonight in University
hall auditorium by Play Production
and Direction. Tickets for the pro-
duction are available at Wahr's book-
store. Seats will be reserved.
"Seven Keys To Baldpate" was
written by George M. Cohan from the
story by Earl Derr Biggers and was
first produced by him at the Astor
f Theater in New York in 1913. It has
