SHANGHAI, Feb. 22.-A Cantonese
(Nationlist) gunboat shelled this city
today while endeavoring to bombard
the Kiangnan arsenal, one mile south.
Five shells fell in the French settle-
ment district and five in the native
Two Chinese were killed and two
American homes were damaged. Nd
foreigners were injured.
Lying in the Whangpoo river, the
gunboat attempted to fire over the
city at the arsenal which contained
munitions.of Sun Chuan Fang, ruler
of this province of Kiangsu with
whom the Cantonese are at war. The
shells fell short, owing to defective
guns. The arsenal lies isolated from
other habitations, and had the marks-
manship been good, there probably
would have been little danger to
The bormbardment by the gunboat
was part of a traitorous plot against
Sun Chuan Fang. The gunboat turn-
ed overnight from his control whenl
its personnel went over bodily to the
Cantnese. Two warships of Sun also
were said to have turned to the Can-
tonese cause, and to prevent their
joining in the bombardment, the
French gunboat Alert, and marines'
trained their guns upon them without
Police Guard Concessions
All volunteer and police forces oft
the French concession were called to
arms Then the shelling was begun
and with machine guns they guardedr
all entrances to the district from the
adjoining native city. It as thought
for the time that an effort would be
made to overrun the foreign sections
of the city.E
The international settlement, oiher1
foreign districts of Shanghai, were
not menaced by the gunfire, they
being to the north of the line of fire
which was directed southward.
The heavy foreign naval and rail-
itary forces were aroused by the
sound of firing, but did not participate
in the disturbance, with the exception
of the two French warships which I
manned their guns.
Alert to protect foreign lives and
property if need be, there are at
Shanghai more than 25 foreign war-
ships and more than 10,000 fighting
men available for shore duty. These,
it is believed, will be sufficient to
guard the interests of the many thou-
sand foreign residents living in a city
of more than a million Chinese.
SHANGHAI, Feb. 22.-The heavy
swords of Sun Chuan Fang's soldiers,
which since Saturday have struck
off heads of inciters to the strike pro-
moted by the Nationalist government
to weaken resistance to its armed
forces, was less active today. There
has been a partial resumption of
postal and transportation service, but
approximately 100,000 strikers remain
idle in general industry.
Threaten British Employee
The violence of the beheaders, how-
ever, has aroused the opposition to
threats of reprisal. In Changsha,
capital of Hunan province, threats of
death have been made by labor unions
to all Chinese. who remain in British
employ and to all who supply neces-
sities to the British. In that far in-
land city, controlled by the Cantonese,
a coal contractor was seized for sup-
plying his commodity to the British
While there was no sign or anti-
foreign feeling in the strike agitation
in Shanghai, where heavy military
and naval forces of foreign nations

were on guard, increased anti-Britisn
agitation was reported from up the
Yangtze river. Chinese pilots were in-
timidated at Ichang and the crews of
American ships were threatened for
carrying British passengers.

The proclamation by Li Tao-Ching,
Chinese' defense commissioner of
Mfarshal Sun's forces in Shanghai,

Poincare Expresses
Views On War Debt
To French Chamber
(By Associated Press)
PARIS, Feb. 22-Equality of treat-
ment of the United States and Great
Britain in payments of war debts is
the policy of the Poincare government
as disclosed in a letter from the pre-
mier to the finance committee of the
chamber of deputies, given out this
Premier Poincare confirmed reports
that negotiations have been going on
at Washington respecting a provision-
al payment on the Mellon-Berenger
accord and said that he hoped that the
proposition of the French governmentJ
1to make payment for 1927 on the same
basis as the payments to Great Britain
would be accepted.
He reminded the committee that the
debts in question were payable at'
sight in their totality and that the
arrangements made with London and
proposed to Washington must conse-
quently be considered favorable since
i they gave Parliament time to consider
carefully both settlements without
abandoning the right to approve or re-
ject them.
It is exclusively an administrative
prerogativeto decide how money
available from foreign debts shall be
applied, the premier declared. He
pointed out that the payments already
have been made to other nations un-
der the same conditions as proposed
to Great Britain and the United States.

Harrigan And Oosterbaan Divide
Scoring Honors, While Chambers
Stars With Play On Defense
Wilton A. Sipson
Ohio State's upset of Indiana com-
bined with the Wolverines' record
scoring victory over Chicago last
night placed Michigan in a deadlock
for the leadership of the Big Ten Con-
ference with the Wisconsin team
which defeated -Iowa, one of the four
teams which held a joint claim to
second place.
Michigan and Wisconsin now hold
first place in joint tenancy, each hav-
ing six victories and two defeats on
its record. The Indiana five, which
defeated Michigan Saturday night to
advance into the top position, fell into
a tie for fourth place with Illinois.
Indiana and Illinois each have won
six games, but have three defeats to
mar their records. Purdue, one of the
teams in the multiple tie for second
place, remained just a step out of
first place with a percentage of .714.
Theoretically, -there are still six
possible champions, if a percentage
of nine games won and three lost will
win the title. However, if it takes
ten victories to claim the title, there
are only Michigan, Wisconsin, and
Purdue to be considered. Of the lead-
ing teams, Michigan and Wisconsin
are generally Iconsidered to have the
most difficult schedules to face. The
Wolverines must meet Illionis, Chi-
cago, Iowa, and Purdue, while Wis-
consin is faced with Indiana, Iowa,
and a two game series with Illnois.
Purdue is the most feared member of
the Conference, meeting such teams
as Minnesota, Chicago, and North-
western (two games), Michigan being
the only team of first rank which the
Boilermakers have yet to play.
Maroons Start Strong
At the outset of the game, it looked
as though the Wolverines were to suf-
fer another defeat. The Maroons had
command of the situation for the first
few minutes, leading by four points,
but Michigan came to the fore when
McCoy and Martin sank three long
throws. From that point the Wol-
verines took the lead and never re-
linquished it, commanding a 29 to 16
lead by the end of the first half.
Play at the beginning of the second
period was particularly slow, the only
scoring being on free throws by Chi-
cago. Harrigan broke the lull when
he dribbled through the Chicago de-
fense for three short shots.
After the Wolverines had gained a
40 to 20 lead over the Maroons, Coach
Mather made frequent substitutions,.
Petrie, Truskowski, Rasnick, Schro-
der and Nyland, all being given an
opportunity to play. Oostrbaan was
the only regular to play throughout
the contest. With the score 46-25 and
the crowd clamoring for a score of
50 points, Oosterbaan dropped in a
"pot" shot and followed with a long
toss. Chambers was fouled and given
a free throw which he completed,
makingthe score 51 to 25 as the gun
was fired.
Chambers Stars On Defense
Although Captain Chambers did not
figure in the scoring from the floor,
he was clearly the outstanding man
on the Michigan defense. Time and
time again, Chicago raced down the
floor with two men at the basket,
only to have Chambers leap into the
air and block the throw. McCoy als
played an excellent game .beneath the
Oosterbaan was the high point man
of the contest, scoring one more point
than his teammate, Harrigan. Ooster-
baan and Harrigan each scored seven
I baskets, but the former made three
free throws while Harigan was suc-

force to put down unnecessary upris-
