Russian Consul Says Diplomatic Corps
May Move From Peking'o Seat
Of Cantonese Government
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, April 7.-Official re-
ports confirming the violation of
Russian diplomatic immunity in Pek-
ing by police and soldiers vied for;
attention with disclosure that a fleet
of 21 foreign warships has mobilized
at Hankow, Nationalist political capi-
tal at a time when demands for re-
parations for the Nanking outrages
are being drafted for presentation at
Minister MacMurray cabled that the
Russian embassy raid had followed
the granting of permission to the
Chinese authorities by the senior dip-
lomat of the Boxer protocol powers,
the Dutch minister, for a search of
the privately owned Dahlbank and the!
building of the Chinese Eastern rail-
way, adjacent to the embassy com-
pound, for evidence of "subversive So-
viet agitation."
Criticizes Chinese
He added that the Chinese had evi-
dently exceeded this authority to
search Russian private owned and oc-
cupied property and invaded the bar-
racks in the old Russian legation com-
pound occupied by the Russian lega-
tion guard before the Moscow govern-
ment waived its special right under
the Boxer protocol.
State department officials said per-
mission to search the privately owned
property in the diplomatic quarter
constituted no infringement of diplo-
matic rights but that the protocol
diplomats had not and could not au-.
thorize any forcible entry into actual
legation or embassy structures. A
protest by the Dutch minister to theJ
Peking government because of this!
circumstance is anticipated.
Of far greater moment as it affects
the whole Chinese situation, howeyer,
is the course the Moscow government
may take as a result of the incident.
Undoubtedly it would afford ground
for vigorous action which might add
to the already complicated problem
of protecting Americans and other
foreigners in China from violation.
Fleet Mobilizes
The fleet mobilization at Hankow
was reported by Consul General Lock-
hart. His dispatch, as made public,
did not indicate that the concentra-
tion of war vessels had any other sig-
Afificance than as reflecting tension
over the status of foreigners still pre-
vailing at Hankow.}
Four Japanese destroyers reached
the city within 48 hours after the riot-
ing of April in the Japanese conces-
sion, in which Japanese and Chinese
were killed, Lockhart said. In all
there are eight Japanese naval craft,

French and one Italian now at han-

May Move To Peking
SHANGHAI, April 7.-The possibil-
ity of the removal, of the Soviet em-
bassy at Peking to Hankow, the seat
of the Cantonese, or Nationalist gov-
ernment, was suggested today by Wil-
helm F. Linde, Soviet consul here, asl
a result of yesterday's raid by North-
ern soldiers on buildings attached to
the Russian embassy.1
Mr. Linde said that such a removal
was not impossible in 'discussing the
incident with newspapermen after he
had called on the Norwegian consul
general, dean. of the diplomatic corps
in Shanghai, who announced that he
would hold the consular body respon-
sible if the Soviet consulate here were
raided also.
The Soviet consul general also de-
clared -that if the Peking raid was
carried out with the approval of the
diplomatic corps, it would set a pre-
cedent that would endanger the foun-
dations of diplomatic prerogatives.

quale With Growth And Social
Change Latest Survey Finds
A University College, to include all
students of less than junior standing
in the present schools and colleges
of the Universtly'was recommended
yesterday in the report of the Senate
Committee on Undergraduate studies
which was created by action of the
Senate committee several months ago
to investigate the undergraduate
years 'of the present University cur-
The report, made by apyroval of 21
of the 2' members of the committee,
presided over by President Clarence
Gook Little as chairman and Dean
Alfred Lloyd as vice chairman, was
made in respone to a resolution by
the Board of Regents requesting that
a study be made of the undergraduate
years of the University.
The committee, according to the re-
port, found that in recent years there
has been a general tendency among
the universities of the nation to ex-
amine anew the aims and methods of
instruction as well as the form and
nature of the University organization,
n order to deal more effectively with
he problems of undergraduate life.
"There has been a widespred feel-
ig," the report; states, "that the
methods and organizations which
proved their value in the smaller col-
legiate communities of a generation
ago, have become inadequate with the
growth of numbers and changes in
the social order."
Numerous Problems Faced
The problems which the committee
faced are briefly: affording the first
year students an opportunity to be-
come intimately acquainted with at
Least one or more faculty members,
o eliminate certain students who
meet with mediocre success in class
work but who fail to exhibit the qual-
ities which a University should de-
mand of its students. to eliminate the
students who are forced by social
pressure into college against their
own better judgment, to take account
of the differences in preparation and
qualifications of the vaarious first year
students, to stress more fully subjects
of mental and physical hygiene, to
discover the student' of superior abil-
ity, and to make the first year stu-
dent feel that he is an integral part
of the University.
The committee examined reports on
the subject from a number of other
universities and colleges, and de-
cided that the purpose of the recom-
mendations would be to make the first
two years of the Univers ty cur-
riculum of greater value to the in-
vidual" student. To do this the plan
would distinguish early between the
superior and the mediocre students,
would provide more adequate means
for dealing with the student as an
individual, and would create an, inter-
est in University affairs that will tend
to make students intelligent and help-
ful alumni.
New College Is Solution
The effective solution of the prob-
hem which the committee recommends
is the "Univesity College," to take
all students of less than junior stand-
ing in any of the present schools.or
colleges of the University which now
admit students (directly from high
schools. The students will be mem-
hers of the college for te first two

years, accordin o the plan, orni
such time as th qualify for admis
sion to one of 'he other schools or
colleges of the University.
It is the belief of the committee
that the transfer of the students from
the University College to the other
schools on colleges on the campus
should be allowed as -soon as the stu-
dent meets the requirements of these
other units. Such transfers may take
place in some instances as early as
the&lose of one semester. In view of
the existing conditions, the commit-
tee considers it at present impratic-
able to include in the University Col-
lege students of the College of
Pharmacy, the three year course in
nursing, and the one year course in
oral hygiene.
In recommending the organization
of the University College the commit-
tee recommended that a dean should
be appointed and that certain stand-
ing committees be appointed. The
College would b _under the direction
of a faculty composed of those mem-
hers of the other faculties of the Uni-
