Government Relaxing Stand or
Japanese Evacuation in-
By P. L Lipsey, Jr.
PARIS, Nov. 17.-IP)-Portents of
changes in the attitudes of the
United States and Russia today
threw fresh anxiety over the Leagu
of Nations council which is facing
the test of its dozen years existence
in an effort to restore peace in
Reliable indications appeared
overnight that the United States
was relaxing its firm stand for Jap-
anese evacuation of the disputed
area and that Russia is beginning
to bestir herself against Japanese
military activities close to the Si-
berian frontier.'
The members of the council,
without the Chinese and Japanese
representatives, met privately at
the Quai d'Orsay shortly before
noon. The meeting followed private
individual conversations of Ambas-
sador Charles Dawes and Chairman
Briand with the Chinese and Japa-
nese spokesmen, Dr. Sze and Am-
bassador Yoshizawa.
Dawes May Not Aid.
The impression gained ground
that Ambassador Dawes and the
United States government are not
inclined to co-operate closely with
the league in its efforts to settle
the controversy, and a report was
received from a high authority that
Maxim Litvinoff, Soviet commissar
for foreign affairs, has filed a pro-
test at Tokio regarding Japanese
army movements in the region of
the Chinese Eastern railway, which
~in the Russian sphere of influ-
ece in Manchuria.
This news led to the belief that
Russia would not keep her hands
off the situation indefinitely if the
league and the United States failed
to halt the Japanese advance.
Gen. Dawes denied himself to
qgestioners but the impression was
gained at his headquarters that the
United States government now re-

session of the council and believes

The French press had adopted
an attitude frankly favorable to
the Japanese and expressed the be-
lief that the great powers, except
Germany, are beginning to regard
Japan'as the defender of the valid-
ity of existing treaties and a pro-
tection of the status quo.
Ma churian Rumor.
Intiiations from Manchuria that
Russia is showing concern over
Japanese moves there reawakened
talk of Soviet intervention "to save
China from the invader."]
Dr. Sze, Chinese spokesman, has
given notice that he expects action
from the council and will noilonger
be satisfied with promises. Chinese
sympathizers now suggest that if
the Nanking government can't get
help from the league and the
United States, its next move will be
to accept Soviet assistance to de-
fend its territorial integrity. 1
Compromise Discussed,
In certain quarters it was said
that. a so-called compromise plan
discussed Monday night amounts1
to an effort by the great powers to1
rebind China to the old treaties
under which the great nations en-
joyed special privileges of extra-
territoriality in Chinese territory.
The Chinese position is that
treaties were concluded under pres-I
sure and are invalid and that so
far as the Sino-Japanese "treaty"
of 1915 is concerned the position
has received United States support.
The Chinese are determined reso-,
lutely to maintain this position but
have said they are willing to arbi-
trate the question of the validity
of the disputed treaties.
This issue touches the question

of the validity of the World war

though "On, Wisconsin," w e 11l-
known football song of the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin, has paid to its
Milwaukee publishers more than
$50,000, its composer, William T.
Purdy, whose children are attend-
ing the university this year, and its
author, Carl Beck, '10, never re-
ceived more than $15 in royalties
on the song, it was disclosed in a
recent interview with Beck.
The two men who, according to
Beck, at a time when they were so
hard pressed that they used post-
age stamps to pay for a meal,
scraped together $50 in credit back
in September, 1909, used the credit
to finance the first edition. Beck
designed the cover himself and
wrote'most of the words, Purdy do-
ing the music.
The inspiration had been a $100
prize offered by a Saint Paul music
house for a new University of Min-
nesota song, but when Beck heard
the first strains of the new music,
his loyalty to the Badger institu-
tion, which he was attending,
prompted him to convince Purdy to
use it for Wisconsin.
The first copies were printed and
taken by Purdy to Madison on the

eve of the Minnesota game in Octo-
ber, 1909, when it was presented do
the students at a mass meeting by
Jack Wilce, fellow Deke of Beck
and Purdy. The song immediately
took hold, and students sang it
over and over.
Publication was arranged for with
the Milwaukee house on a royalty
basis. Later, along about the begin-
ning of the war, the publisher, hav-
ing been approached by phono-
graph and player-piano companies,
induced Purdy, who was hard
pressed at the time, to part with
the copyright for $100.
"The publishers of an all-Amer-
ican college song book," said Beck,
"have tried. for years to include
'On, Wisconsin,' which John Phillip
Sousa is said to have called the
finest of college march songs. Wis-
consin's representation as a univer-
'sity is not for a moment considered
by the publishers, who are reported
to have demanded a cash payment
of $500, five times the amount for
which the. ownership was sold 17
years ago."
"I believe that the students and
alumni should hurl a challenge on
the ppblisher. The song has be-
come more than a piece of prop-
arty. I dedicated it to the univer-
sity and the state. The moral re-
sponsibilities are no less than the
property rights. Has the new legal

American Agriculture All
for Comeback, Report


By J. F. Cox
EAST LANSING, Nov. 17.-()-
The essential soundness of American
agriculture is demonstrated by its
strong resistance to the demoral-
izing effect of low prices and low
yields ove widespreadeareas due
to drought. In spite of heavy drafts
on the reserves of capital, fertil-
ity, and equipment of individual
farms, and the sapping effect of
long continued low prices and in-
crease in credit restriction, agri-
culture is in a position to make a
rapid comeback in keeping with
improvement that may develop in
industry and business. -
Higher wheat prices have had a
widespread effectinchanging the
viewpoint of the farmer. Apparent-
ly the bottom has been plumbed
and instead of the pessimism ac-
companying a downward price
trend, farmers'and others who de-
pend on farm profits are thinking
in terms based on our improved
price. They are hopeful that beans,
potatoes, meat and milk will be af-
fected favorably, by the rise in
wheat and that these products also
have reached the lowest possible.

ward-trend during the winter and
The determination and confi-
dence of Michigan farmers to
maintain those agencies that ac-
company an effective farm and
community program are shown by
the fact that 61 out of 65 Michigan
counties have continued to support
their county agent, home economics
and 4-H club work. Strong gains
have been made in the co-operative
movements affiliated with the Farm
prehension among the French, Pol-
ish and little entente diplomats.

er in Manchuria, his submitted a
set of counter-proposals to the
Japanese general, Honjo, dispatches
from Mukden said today, but is
standing his ground south of An-
ganchi with no indication that he
intends to withdraw.
Dispatches from Harbin earlier
in the day indicated that Gen. Mah
had accepted the Japanese demand
that he withdraw, but the Mukden
report of the counter-proposals
said he would fall back only if the
Japanese evacuate the Nonni river
sector and give guarantees that
Gen. Chang Hai-Peng shall not be
permitted to use the Taonan-An-
ganchi railway.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 17.-(P)_
Received with warmth and splen-
dor, Italy's foreign minister, Dino
Grandi set today upon a path of
preliminary ceremonies before for-
mally offering President Hoover
his country's "contribution to the
common work for the common
So the statesman described the
purpose of his 'visit in a first ut-
terance upon Washington soil. For
tingly, his earliest rendezvous this
morning was at the marble shroud
of the Unrnown Soldier. Chief
thought in Grandi's visit is the
preservation of the peace for which
the warrior gave his life.
Late in reaching the capital Mon-
day night, the 36-year-old minister
and Signora Grandi were welcomed
with the full honors due foreign
guests of the nation. A few min-
utes later they were presented to
President and Mrs. Hoover at the
White House. Informal greetings
were exchanged in English and the
couple hurried off to Secretary'
Stimson's home for dinner and a
night's rest.
Signor Grandi will not discuss
world problems with the president
until after a formal dinner at the
White House Wednesday night.
Meanwhile he has defined the gen-
eral purpose of his visit in a state-
ment to the press and in informal
chats by, the fireside at "Woodley,"
the Stimson home in fashionable
northwest 1Washington.
He ta1ked after dinner with Sen-
ator Borah, and unlike Premier La-
val of France, his immediate pre-
decessor in that scene, Grandi
found himself in fairly close ac-
cord with the outspoken chairman
of the senate foreign relations com-
mittee. The other guests afford-
ed them 25 minutes of undisturbed
conversation. The Versailles treaty
gave them common ground, for
both want it revised.

Dean J. B. Edmonson of the Uni-

Although Dean Edmonson, Frank

the recommendation, it was car-

The, department of education, as
recommended by the committee,
would be headed, by a full-time
cabinet member. Tendencies to-
ward over-centralization of the de-
partment, however, were advised
against, and it was stipulated that
the department would have no leg-
al or financial power "by which
it might control the social purposes{
and specific processes of education."
Questioned about the difficulty of
adjusting school credits in the case
of indilriduals that transfer from
state to state, Dean Edmonson said
that there. was similar difficulty,
