UP, VIA JAP'S
LVES OLD MYSTERY,
at McGill university, Montreal, by
the well known trial-and-error sys-
tem.
A Japanese freshman was walk-
ing down the Quad (which corre-
sponds to the Diagonal here) with
a huge stack of books under his
arm. A sappy sophomore, coming
up from behind, gave the books a
push which scattered them over an
area of many square feet. Here
Na as the trial.
But the Japanese freshman knew
Jiu-Jitsu. Here was the error.
The Jap turned around delibe-
rately and calmly faced the soph-
omore. Not a word did he speak.
Deliberately he bent to a semi-
squatting position. Then-
Suddenly the sophomore was
standing on his ear, perched atop
the freshman's shoulder. Screams
of agony rent the air.
Thus, a sophomore's slip-up
found the answer to a puzzle that
has long troubled a scientific world.
But the said sophomore, instead of
wearing the laurel wreathes of a
famed discoverer, is wearing raw
beefsteak on his left ear.
To Offer "Diplomacv"
As InitialProduction
Sardou's "Diplomacy" has been
definitely decided upon as the pro-
duction for Comedy club in place
of Gray's, "The Best People," which
he wrote in collaboration with Av-
ery Hopwood. "Diplomacy" had
been considered originally and it
was decided that in view of a great
deal of sentiment for the play the
change would be made.
Try-outs were held late yesterday
and the cast as well as the definite
date of presentation will be made
public sometime today. The pro-
duction will constitute the opening
Comedy Club presentation for the
current season.
"Diplomacy" was recently the ve-
hicle for an all-star cast consisting
of such noted actors and actresses
as Rollo Peters, Helen Gahagan,
Margaret Anglin, and William Fav-
ersham. That group toured theI
country visiting many of the large
and small cities and receiving fav-
orable comment everywhere.

NEW STATE CRIMINAL
CODE GOESTO COURT
Constitutionality Will Receive First
Severe Test Before Supreme
Court
TWO CASES ATTACK LAW
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, Mich., Oct. 12.-Argu-
ments on a criminal docket which
will give the State's new crime code
its first severe test opened Thurs-
day before the Supreme Court.
Two cases, directly attacking the
code, are on the comparatively
short calendar. Briefs have been
filed and oral arguments were ex-
pected today. The Fred Palm ap-
peal from a life sentence for four
felonies, the last of which was pos-
session of a pint of gin-assails the
constitutionality of the habitual
criminal provision. The other raises
the question of whether the new code
repealed the 1917 liquor law. If it
did, search warrants could not be
employed at night except on ab-
solute proof of the presence of
liquor, Gus Snyder, bf Graitn Ledge,
charges in his appeal.
The opening argument was the
appeal of Archie W. Baxter, who
was found guilty in Kent of at-
tempted bribery in connection with
asphalt contracts in East Grand
Rapids.
According to the record Baxter
was charged with attempting to se-
cure the support of Dr. Oscar B.
Frye, a city council member, with a
split of $4,00O6.William G. O'Con-
nor, a contractor, was found guilty
of bribery, on virtually the same in-
formation. Then the jury found
Baxter guilty of "attempted" brib-
ery.
"If the evidence proved Baxter
guilty of anything, it was bribery,"
George E. Nichols, his attorney, told
the court. "The lesser charge of at-
tempt is not contained in the major
charge. As counsel for these men it
leaves me in the position of having
one guilty of bribery, the other with
attempted bribery and charges
pending against Dr. Frye."

LOS ANGELES, Oct 12-Dr. Rob-
ert Meals, young Hollywood sur-
geon who three days ago removed
his own appendix, today said he
felt well enough to get up and
walk, and "I would do so now in-
stead of waiting the necessary ten
days if I thought it would be safe."
Neither economy, necessity, nor
desire for publicity prompted his
self-operation, the doctor said.
Rather, the operation was an ex-
periment to verify his previous!
conclusion that the "shock" which
most patients suffer from opera-
tions was due largely to anesthesia

So reluctant were hospitals to{
be the scene of the experimentj
that Dr. Meals said he was refused!
permission to carry it out at two
of the larger institutions here and,
consent to enter a third was given]
only after a promise that therEI
would be no publicity given the
hospital.
Dr. Meals was assisted by a
friend, Dr. J. Norton Nichols, who
helped locate the appendix, which
was in an unusual position, and
to loosen it from adhesions to the
back of the abdominal wall.
Dr. Meals took his place on the
operating table with only nurses

MARINER'S GHOST
RETURNS H OME
That yesterday, October 12, was
Columbus day or the anniversary
of the discovery of our country
-was probably not realized by most
c~f the University students. The
fact is, that yesterday was the day
Ion which the ghost of Christopher
Columbus returned to earth in
commemoration of the day when
he first set foot on American soil.
Just 436 years ago the "ancient
mariner" sailed the stormy ocean
in quest of things which led him to
this hemisphere.
On the first few Columbus days
red calendar dates were, no doubt,
unnecessary. Friday, October 12,
1928, however, the red date was
looked on with a perplexed coun-
tenance by the average individual.
"W~hy is October 12 printed red?"
was no uncommon questionryes-
terday.

"but what he and the administra-
tion of which he has been an im-
portant part have already done,"
offering "an unparalleled record{
of constructive achievement." .
"Under the present administra-
tion," he continued, "taxes have
been materially lowered on four
occasions. Expenditures have
been cut. The public debt has
been reduced so that it is no longer
a heavy burden to the taxpayers."1

Age-old trade routes between the
Orient and the Occident are being
motorized. The old caravan route
used more than 1600 years ago in
the days of Queen Zenobia when
Palmyra was a flourishing city, is
now frequented by motor cars. An-
other, from Bagdad to Damascus,
approximately six hundred milk, is
now being covered by six-wheel
buses.
