Seeking Renmoval Of Limitation
On Mill Tax System
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, March 24.-President
Clarence Cook Little, of the University
of Michigan, lobbied in favor of the
$14,000,000 University appropriations
bill before the senate which recessed
for ten minutes to hear him speak.
President Little, who had just come
from a meeting of the senate Univer-
sity committee, which has the appro-
priation bills before them, spoke of
the need of more money for the Uni-
versity.
"The point you gentlemen must de-
cide," Dr. Little told the members of
the house, "is not, 'Can we afford to
spend this money?' Rather the ques-
tion is, 'Can we afford not to ."
Committee Figl t Expected
The senate bills reported out of
committee shortly after the meeting,
would allow the University $4,925,000
for new buildings for the next two
years and would give the University
the whole mill tax, amounting to ap-
proximately $4,200,000 annually in-
stead of the present limit of $3, 700,000.
Both measures were referred to the
senate finance committee, where a
fight is expected when the committee
begins to trim the bill down.

(By ;associated Press)
WAS1I N(ITC)N, March 24.-The Chinese situation flamed to
a sudden crisis, filled with the gravest possibilities, with the roar of the
American and British naval gns at Nanking.
An unknown number of American and British lives have been taken
by a mob of undisciplined Nationalist soldiers. , uns of American and
1-ritish warships and rifles and bayonets of American and British sailors
blasted a way to safety for the survivors.
Other foreigners, including more than oo American men, women,
and children, are still in the seething turmoil of the river city, their
fate unknown. Solomn warning has been served on Nationalist leaders
by the American and British conmanders, to produce these unharmed
or take the consequences. Menacing muzzles of naval guns, trained
on the swarming city of a quarter of a million population, backed the
demand.
