Fu rher DissensionI Threatens China
When Nationalist Chief Breaks
With Hankow Government
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON*, April 1.--A firm
stand of the Washington government
to use means necessary to protect
Americans in China, was reiterated1
today in a formal statement by Sec-
retary Kellogg.
"The United States government is
taking necessary steps to protect the
lives and property of Americans in!
China," Secretary Kellogg said.
Ile added that no orders for Amer-
ican evacuation of Shanghai had
been issued from Washington, and
that only those Americans located at
points in China where protectionf
could not be afforded have been ad-I
vised to withdraw by Minister Mac-
Murray at Peking.I
Kellogg Answers Criticism
Mr. Kellogg's statement was
prompted by published criticismj
among Americans at Shanghai, in-
cluding certain officials of the muni-
cipal council, which governs the in-
ternational city, charging lack ofj
firmness in Washington in dealing
with the crisis and failure to co-
operate with other western powers.
"American diplomats and military
representatives in China are cooperat-
ing fully with other foreign repre-
sentatives when faced with a joint
problem such as protection of the

WASHINGTON, April 1-Conclud-
ing four days of public hearings at
which scones of representatives of
radio interests appeared, the federal
radio commission tonight took under1
advisement a voluminous record of{
testimony out of which it hopes to.
bring a semblance of order to the
present chaotic radio situation. A mul-
titude of proposals to remedy the con-
gestion resulting from 732 stations us-
ing 95 available wave lengths was of-
fered, and these the commission is at
liberty to use in reaching a starting
point for re-licensing stations after
April 24 when the 60 day respite al-
lowed by law expires.
Out of the mass of suggestions
came several large scale plans which,
if adopted, would revolutionize pres-
ent broadcasting by wholesale reduc-
tions of the number of stations; al-
most general opposition to revision of
the present broadcast band or other
physical changes, on the ground that
existing equipment would have to be
scrapped, and less drastic formulas
for numerical curtailment of stations.
While no announcement was madeI
by the commission, the prevailing;
opinion among competent observers,
was that the control body would not
adopt any station reduction plan for
general application to the country as
a whole, but rather would settle its
admittedly difficult problem in a grad-
ual manner by eliminating only those

stations which from time to time are
proven useless from a public serviceI
One proposal put forward today,
which is expected to have some weight
with the commission, was that of S. B.
Davis. solicitor of the commerce de-
partment, who is considered an ex-
pert on radio matters. He proposed
that the commission consider each ap-
plication for a license on its merits
from a public service standpoint,
classifying them by wave lengths de-
sired and go down the line for all
available wave lengths which woul(l
make possible at least a tentative rul-
ing as to which stations shall use at
particular broadcast channel.
He realized that under this pro-
cedure there must be some stations
eliminated, but declared the commis-'
sion should not "shut its eyes to that
Shows How Washington, Lincoln, And
Wilson Were Subjects To Rid- i
ieule During Lifetimes
(By Associated Press)
PHILADELPHIA, April 1-Intoler-
ance is widespread in America and
whether "we can support free institu-
tions is problematical," Dr. Alexander
Meiklejohn, former president of Am-
herst college, and now associated with
the University of Wisconsin, asserted
today before the educators attending
Schoolmen's week.?
Many outstanding Americans in-f
cluding Washington, Lincoln, and Wil-
son had to bear the sting of ridicule
during their lives before their opin-
ions differed from the rank and file,1
Dr. Meiklejohn said.
"I am not sure America can support
free courts, a free press, free litera-
ture, a free theater and a free life,"
he added. "Russia and Italy have tried
and failed. I wonder if America will
fail too."
The colonial ambitions of a Euro-
pean nation in the Mediterranean area
threatens the world's peace, Prof.
Hugh C. Wendell of New York univer-
sity told the conference. Control of
the waterways of the Red sea and the
Mediterranean is coveted by all the
great powers, he said.
"So long as Great Britain and
France pursue a friendly policy peace
in the Mediterranean will be maintain-
ed," Dr. Wendell asserted. "A seriousI
divergence of vital interests over col-
onial possessions, however, will re-
sult in conflicts which will involve
