Claims Order To Troops Is Violaioi
Of vashington Agreement As Well
As Ruling Of Covenant
(y AAssociated Press)
Geneva, .Feb. 16-The Chinese dele
gation announced tonight that it ha
sent a note to Sir Eric Drummond
secretary-general of the League of Na.
tions, oninstructions from the Peking
foreign office, demanding the with-
drawal of the British order to send
troops to China.
The note included a copy of .Peking's
earlier protests to Great Britai
against the dispatch of the British de-
fense force as a violation of the Wash-
ington agreement and of Article X of
the covenant of the League, binding
members of the League to protect the
territoriality and political independ-
ence of fellow members.
The note insisted that the Chinese
forces were capable of maintaining or-
der in Shanghai, asserted that the
presence of troops would lead to com-
plications and demanded the with-
drawal of the order to send troops.
The Chinese spokesman said that
Chu-Chao-Hsin, the Chinese delegate
to the League, left for Rome after
forwarding the note and that he still
is awaiting instructions whether to
preciptatea discussion over the,Brit-
ish dispatch of troops at the League
council session on March 7.

Shanghai, Feb. 16-This city again
became menaced today with an invas-
ion of Cantonese (Nationalists) forces,
as a result of .a severe defeat suffered
by the defending troops of Marshal
Sun Chuan Feng, in Chekiang province.
Sun's army was forced back almost to

by reinforced Cantonese troops.

Honan province, alignments are tak.

These were the major developments
today in civil war-ridden China. The
chief stake has been stated to be con-
trol of a united China by either the
Peking or Nationalist government, but
lesser prizes are sought by the war
lords composing the chief forces oper-
ating independently. The fall of
Hangchow, capitol and chief city of
Chekiang province, is imminent. Na-
tionalist troops, reinforced from Fu-
kien province, suddenly cut the line of
communications of Sun Chuan Feng's
army betwen Yenchow and Hangehow
and penetrated within 18 miles of that
great city of 800,000 inhabitants.

Sherwood Eddy
World Pacifist To Hold Open Forunm
Discussion Sunday Afternoon
At Lane Hall
Plans are nearly complete for the
debate between Sherwood Eddy and
Prof. William H1. Hobbs and Prof.
Thomas H. Reed to be held at 10:30
o'clock, Tuesday, in Hill auditorium.
lit was announced yesterday. The de-
bate will conclude Mr. Eddy's discus-
Sunday afternoon Mr. Eddy is to
meet members of church guilds and
others who are interested in an open
forum discussion in Lane hall audi-
torium. That night he will address
a meeting in Hill auditorium on some
phase of the world situation. He will
speak Monday afternoon in Natural
j Science auditorium, using for his
topic "Dare We Think?"
There has been only one change in
the plans for the debate. The ques-
tion which Professor Hobbs origin-
ally favored was: "Resolved, that un-
der the existing conditions, the United
States maintain a system of national
defense."! This has been slightly
changed to : "Resolved, that, under
the existing conditions, the United
States maintain the present system of
national defense." Professor Hobbs
is to open the debate with a 25 minute
talk for the affirmative. I-I will be
followed by Mr. Eddy in a 25 minute
talk on the negative side of the ques-
tion. Rebuttals of 15 minutes each
will then be given, the first by Profes-
sor Reed on the affirmative and the
second by Mr. Eddy.
' The world pacifist has recently re-
turned from his seminar of American
writers and speakers who met to
study conditions in Europe. It is ex-
pected that in his talks he will use
matrial from his recent trip to Russia
where, with the rest of his party, he
interviewed some 30 outstanding
leaders including Stalin, Lenin's suc-
cessor, and the Ministers of Foreign
Affairs. He is coming under the

Prosess Employed In Mining Alaskan
Gold And Rescue Of Ship From j
Reef Included In Description
Using motion pictures taken by rep-
resentatives of the Pathe corporation
to illustrate his lecture, Captain Rob-
ert A. Bartlett, veteran of 16 Arctic
explorations, described his recent trip
on the Morrissey sent out by the
American Museum of Natural History,.
last night in Natural Science audito-
rium. The lecture was the sixth of a
series being presented by the geology
Among the varied subjects treated'
by the motion pictures and Captain
Bartlett's lecture were the running
aground of the Morrissey on an un-
chartered reef off the northwestern
coast of Greenland, dredging for gold
in Alaska, the capture of the various
animals which the Eskimos and
Danish inhabitants of Greenland used
for food, the curious kayaks or canoes
in which the inhabitants travel in the,
water, the sledge dogs, and divers re-
pairing a leak in the boat off Green-
land. I
While on the coast of Greenland,
the Morrissey ran aground and was
carried onto a reef out of the water
by the beating of the waves and an
on-shore breeze. When the tide rose
the day after the ship went aground,
it was found that it was two feet too
low for the vessel to float. The second!
day, empty oil kegs were placed on
the keel in another attempt to float it,
but this also proved unsuccessful. The
third day, the mainsail was hoisted in
the hope that the wind which was
coming off-shore would drive the boat1
off the reef. When the breeze sud-
denly shifted, the boat rolled over into
the water and was once more safely
afloat. All provisions had to be re-
moved, and the crew had been busy in
other ways for all three days so that
none of them obtained any sleep, ac-
cording to Captain Bartlett.
The loosening of the soil by a pow-
erful stream of water, dredging the
rocks and muck up, and the casting
out of the material from which the
gold had been extracted was hown in
the pictures. Many thousands of dol-1
lars worth of gold is recovered by this
process, Captain Bartlett said as he
described it.
Captain Bartlett himself explored
the botto mof the ocean in a diver's
uniform while off Greenland. He used
a cost guard's uniform and the mo-
tion pictures showed him' going down
and coming up.
Union Will Send

paid life members of the Union, as
provided in the amendments to the
constitution adopted last fall, have
been arranged for, and will be mailed

terday by LesterwF. Johnson, '27L,
president of ,the Union, in reply to
numerous requests concerning the
date of payment.
The Union can not make these re-
funds, Johnson explained, until after
the University has refunded to any
students, withdrawing from the Uni-
versity, the 40 per cent of their
tuition to which they are entitled, and
which includes .the Union portion. In
order to facilitate the process, as 'well
as to prevent a double refund of the
Union element of the tuition, the

Premier Wakatsuki Promises Support
In Any "Fair and Equitable"
Disarmament Scheme
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Feb. 16.-Speculation as
to what course President Coolidge
may follow in seeking further naval
armament limitations, in view of the
rejection by France of the Geneva con-
ference plan, was handicapped tonight
by failure of the Italian reply, forecast
in Rome as also a rejection, to put in
an official appearance.
Secretary Kellogg would not expand
on his formal statement last night as
,to the'French answer and presumably
was awaiting an official expression of
Italy's attitude before taking up with
the President whatever further step
the Washington government may deem
it expedient to take.
The indicated Italian rejection serv-
ed to put tentative consideration of
the possibilities of a four power sub-
stitute plan out of the picture for the
present at least. Such a program
was based on intimations that Italy
was inclind to look favorably on the
American proposals.
Unofficially, speculation turned
again to the old three power plan, first
put forward at Geneva, before the pre-

Dr. Emerson, who is dean of the
medical school of the University of
Indiana, delivered the third in a se-
ries of non-technical lectures being
sponsored by Alpha Omega Alpha,
honorary medical society, choosing as
his topic "The Emotional and Psycho-
logical Factors In The Development.
of Pathological States." He has long
been interested in the social and envir-
onmental background of the medical
case, and has been instrumental in de-;
veloping at Indiana a department of
medical sociology which trains men
especially for that work.
"Physical concomitants. are import-

erson told his audience, "and even as

cause so little is known that can be
said concerning the disease, without
frightening the patient. Unless a pa-
tient has considerable medical knowl-
edge, he should not be, taken into the
confidence of the practitioner."
