Washington Accepta
British Offer

Tokio, Rome and Paris
Word Not Yet
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, D. C., Oct. 10.-
The American acceptance of Great
Britain's invitation to a Naval
Limitations conference in London
next January was sent to theBrit-
ish capital this morning almost at
the moment of the departure of
Prime Minister MacDonald from
It was the first acceptance in re-
sponse to the invitation of Oct. 7th
asking the powers to participate in
the proposed conference. With the
formality disposed of, American of-
ficials were awaiting word from
Tokio, Paris and Rome regarding
the attitude of those governments
toward the British invitation.
Press dispatches from Japan,
France and Italy concerning the at-
tention which is being given by the
officials of those countries to the
invitation were being keenly
watched. President Hoover in his
informal talk with Mr. MacDonald
during the past week had assured
the Premier that full cooperation
could be expected from the United
States in the limitation movement.
Has Been Long Pending
The attempt to secure either a
reduction or limitation of sea arm-
aments in catagories oTher than
those included in the Washington;
Arms Treaty of 1921 was initiated
by President Hoover soon after
coming into office. Through Am-
bassador Dawes in London, ne-
gotiations looking toward an agree-
ment between the United States
and Great Britain on the points of
difference which stood in. the way
of a successful conference of the
three powers, the United States,
Great Britain and Japan, were
begun immediately after the Am-
bassador's arrival in London.
These discussions between the
Ambassador and Prime Minister
MacDonald had at their climax the
invitation to the powers after An-
glo-American naval parity had
been agreed upon. Another result
of these discussions was the visit
to the. United States of the Pre-
mier, who left today for England
by the way of New York and Can-
American Response Is Brief
The American response to the
British invitation was unusually
brief, consisting of a single sen-
"I have the honor to refer," the
acceptance said. "to the note which
you were good enough to address
to the Ambassador on October 7th,
and I take great pleasure in in-
forming you that the American
government hastens to accept the
invitation of Hi Majesty's govern-
ment to a conference on naval arm-
ament to take place in London the
latter part of January, which will
unite the powers signatory to the
Washington treaty in a discussion
which will anticipate the prob-
lems raised under Article XXI of
that treaty as well as broaden its
whole scope by the inclusion of
other catagories 'of ships."
The note, which was made pub-
lic by the State department was
signed by Ray Atherton, the Amer-
ican charge de affairs at London.
The article referred to in the
American note applies to the calling
of a conference to consider the pro-
visions of the treaty of 1921 with a
view to its amendment by mutual

Lafayette, Indiana, Saturday,

After a seach that lasted nearly
a week, the body of Dr. Jan Metze-
laar, who was drowned in Granc
Lake, Presque County, Mich., or
October 4, was found early yester
day morning by members of the
field trip party with whom Metz
elaar was engaged at the time o
the accident. The body was brought
to Ann Arbor yesterday afternoon
Funeral arrangements wer
made immediately upon receipt of
the message from Grand Lake. Th

est Hill cemetery this afternoon at
4 o'clock, although by request o:
Mrs. Mezelaar, the committal wil

Visitors Will Examine
Moon Through New
Angell Hall's observatory will be
open to the public both this eve-
ning and Saturday evening from 7
until 10 o'clock, according to Prof.
R. H. Curtis, Director of the ob-
servatory. Tickets must be procured
from the astronomy office for at-
tendance as it is impossible to
handle more than 30 guests an hour
at each observation.-
Contrary to the general belief,
the best time to observe the moon
through a telescope is during the
first quarter, its present position,
and not at full moon. This position
is found only once a month, or more
accurately, every twenty-nine and
a half days which will make an-
other observation impossible until
the tenth of next month. The ob-I
servatory'will be open at that time,
but that will mark the last opening
to the public until some time in
All those' desiring tickets are
urged to procure them as soon as
possible, as they are being given
out very rapidly. According to
Prof. R. H. Curtiss, Director of the
observatory, this will be an excel-
lent time to view the solar system
through the University's new 10-,
inch telescope.

Nature of Show is. Secret.
The exact nature of this year's

by Shuter, and no comments are
forthcoming from him in regard to

are derived are being guarded jeal-

he explained.

lars of the book, but it is generally;
understood that it will be an-
nounced soon. ,

Gigantic Torch Lights,
Oklahoma City
(By Associated Pres)
10.-Two men crouched behind
metal shields continued today to
pit their skill against a gigantic
roaring torch flaming high in the
air over what once was the Sinclair
Oil & Gas Co.'s No. 3 stamper well,.
in the Oklahoma City oil wells.
Thundering loads of high explo-
sive near the 100-foot pillar of fire,
and directing final connections of
a battery of approximately 20 steam
boilers, M. M. "Mack" Kinley and,
his brother, F. T. Kinley, prepare
to snuff out, in one giant pu, the
flame which, fed by 50,000,000 feet
of gas a day, was whipped and
writhed over the Sinclair lease
since shortly before 3 a. m. Tues-
Hardly more than five miles from
the downtown business district, the'
f ire has cast a weird glow over the
city's streets at night, and in the
southern section of the city, three
miles from the well, has made
street lights almost unnecessary.
Some time today-the Kinley
brothers were reticent regarding;
the exact time-one man, crouched
low behind a metal shield that
grows sizzling hot despite streame
of water which constantly drench
it, will creep toward the plume of'
flame which has reared high in
the sky for more than two days..
Clad in a heavy asbestos suit, he
will drag 200 quarts of nitro-glycer-
ine almost to the mouth of the well.
There he will place it so that the
forcei of the explosion will be di-
rected at the base of the flame,
and then scurry away from the
broiling heat.
When he is safely out of range
the charge of explosive will be

The force of the explosion is ex-
pected to hurl the flame above the
gas rearing from the hole. A
heavy blanket of steam, played
from the battery of boilers onto
the mouth of the well, is expected
to retard the flow of gas until the
flame has burned out.
With the fire extinguished, the
gas will be allowed to run wild
while debris, which could not be
removed before the explosion, is
dragged from the well. Then a new)
derrick will be erected in place of
the twisted, whit-hot steel skeleton
which was dragged away piece by
piece Wednesday and efforts will be
directed toward confining the flow.,
