MIAMI, Fla., Jan. 7. - UP0) - One
too many insi(e ioops is blamed for'
the death of Dale "Red" Jackson,
26, St. Louis flyer and co-holder of
the unofficial endurance refuelling1
flight record.
He fell 3,000 feet, apparently un-
able to extricate himself from a
plane whose wings failed to stand
the ,strain/ of aerobatics, as he
stunted above Miami Municipal
Airport Wednesday on the eve of
I the fourth annual All-American Air
Holder of the record for 417
aerial barrel-rolls, Jackson took to
the air in an amphibian plane to
practice for competition for the
Freddie Lund cup,rdonated by the
city of Miami for proficiency in
aerobatics at the air meet.
He lopedi, rolled, and went into l
an Immelman turn. Then specta-
tors saw him wing into another
inside loop.
While the gaze of hundreds was
held skyward, a wing of the amphi-
bian tore loose and spun towardI
the ground. Another wing fell away
and the plane hurtled down.-
Jackson's body was found in thel
pilot's seat. A finger of his right
hand clutched the ring of his para-
chute cord.
Fellow flyers said they believed
the bending of the wings pinched
the fusselage too tightly for Jack-
son to free himself.

Faculty Men Lead in Discussion
and Decide Literary College
Not Ready for Plan.
4n' affirmation of faith in stu-
dent honesty, with the reservation
that the literary colege will not be;
ready for the honor system until
a greater unanimity is apparent in
support of it, came out of Sigma
Rho Tau's open forum discussion
led by faculty menbers last night.
Virtual proof tha he honor plan
is nearly perfect insoperation in
the engineering c "ge was pre-
sented by Prof. A, . Moore, head
of the honor syste committee in
that school. The only type of person
on whom it is inffective. is the
socially maladju ted oie, and these
individuals are destined to be un-
successful in school andl ut any-
way, he said.,
Both Professor Moore and Prof.
Robert C. Angell, who gave the lit-
erary college aspect, agreed that it
is conditions within the literary
college which prevent its successful
applicatirn there present. Pro-
4essot Miexe -po \amt that ta
definite statement of what is ex-
pected under such a system must,
be made, or the students will not
be able to live up to it.
Faculty co-operation is necessary,;
he showed, and it must be realized
that prevention of cheating is not
the sole objec~t. Dean Joseph A.
Bursley, who soke on the general
topic of student conduct, affirmed
this point, stating that honesty and
good breeding in all affairs, in and'
out of classrooms, should be a part
of every university student's equip-
ment. The dean said the Michigan
student body has the highest stand-
ards of any group he has known.
Continuity and leadership must
be developed in the literary school
before the honor system can work
thre, Professor Angell said. It is
the student body which has always
fallen shrt in these respects pre-
viously; he said, for the faculty has
always shown itself willing to co-
operate. .

Covernment Displays Annoyance
at Defiant Attitude of.
Crisis Is Reached in Manchurian
Situation; Nine-Power
Pact Invoked.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.-(/) -Re-
peaeed American protests against
occupation of Manchuria were cap-
ped today by a direct notification
that the United States would stand
on its rights under International
agreements, including the Nine-
Power Treaty and the nellogg-Bri-
and Pact Against War.
A note was dispatched to Tokio
reaffirming the American postion)
in tle face of continuing Japanese
operations which now have virtu-
ally completed the conquest of the
Manchurian provinces.
U. S. Takes Lead Among Powers.
Officials would not discuss the
subject in any way. They declined
for the time being even to specu-
late on the steps which may be pos-
sible now that Washington has
taken the lead among the powers
toward an invocation of the treat-
ies considered applicable.
The Nine-Power Treaty, negoti-
ated at the Washington Arms Con-
ference in 1922, pledged the Nations
having interests in the Far Eat to
"respect the sovereignty, the Inde-
pendence, and the territorial integ-
rity of China." Those who signed
that pledge, in addition to China,
were the United States, Japan,
Great Britain, France, Italy, Bel-
gium,- the N+eeerlan s and Prtu-
gal. Five other Natio s have since
adhered to this reaty... .
Japan Signatory to Both.
The Kellogg-Biand P a c t, ,to
which Japan and most of the other
renounces, war. "as an instrument
of National policy.",
Neither ox these agreements ever
has led to actual concerted action
and it has been a matter of specu-
lation just what action might be
taken under them. Both lack def-
inite statements as to what would
happen in case of violation.
While officials here have consist-
ently refrained from comment on
the developing trouble in Manchu-
ria, news dispatches have showri
clearly the war-like character of
the Japanese advance t h r o u g h
these Northern Chinese provinces.
This advance began in $~ptember
when Japanese troops stationed
along the South Manchurian Rail-
way, where they had a right to be
under treaty agreements, began at-
tacling various Chinese communi-
ties outside the railway zone. They
speedily captured Mukden, the cap-
ital, pushed on to the North, and
finally returned to complete their
occupation by taking Chinchow, the
Southern gateway.
Advanced, Despite Protests.
There has been repeated fighting
between the Japanese armies and
the Chinese, and the United States
and other powers through t h 0
League of Nations, have expressed
fear that Japan not only. was de-
stroying China's administrative in-
tegrity, but was resorting to war
as an instrument of national policy.
Twice, at' least, Washington has
notified Tokio it would look with
much apprehension on the capture
of Chinchow. The Japanese replied
that they had been forced to begin
the advance because their railway
troops were harassed by Chinese
bandits, -and forced to continue it
because these attacks continued.

Youths Are' Charged
With Murder of Eight
First degree murder charges were
placed against two boys in the 'teen
age today for t'e confessed murder
'of eight persons, trapped in a log
cabin"'arid burned to death.
The boys, Albert Ramer, 15, of
Gallipolis, and Ellsworth Mowyer,
17, of Buicyrus, 0., were brought,
here by county authorities tonight
from Lancaster where they were
serving terms in the state boys in-
dustrial school for auto theft.
Motivated by revenge against
James White, 59, for parental ob-
jection against Ramer's attentfns
to his daughter, the boys nailed up
the windows and doors of the White
cabin last April and set it afire,
cremating White and seven of his
eight children, according to the
confession to Sheriff C. H. Swan-
