Move Comes as Result of Labor
and Religious Disorders
in Country.
MAbRID, Jan. 19.-( P)-The re-
ligious and labor disorders that
have caused turmoil in many parts
of Spain during the last few weeks
resulted today in a cabinet order
that Santiago Casares, minister of
interior, used the defense law with
"all severity" to preserve the peace.
The disturbances have consti-
tuted a revolutionary movement on
the part of communistic elements,
government officers declared. 'One
phase of the movement, govern-
ment authorities said, has been the1
succession of riots between Catho-
lics and anti-Catholics.and numer-.
ous attempts in various parts of
Spain to burn churches.
While the government moved to
put down these disorders, it was
learned authoratively that Presi-
dent Niceto Alcala Zamora has
signed a decree dissolving the Jes-
uit order and taking over in the
name of the government all of the
society's property, estimated to to-
tal $30,000,000.
Reports were circulated in Mad-
rid that a general strike through-
out Spain might be called next
Monday. Government forces were

Liquor Control.
WASHINGTON, Jan. l9.-(/X)-.
Opposition to the home-rule liquor
control 'proposal of Chairman John
J. Raskob of the Democratic nat-
ional committee was expresed to-
day by the Anti-Saloon League in
a formal declaration.
The league, which said "Prohibi-
tion iq not a partisan political is-
sue," expressed "confidence in the
President of the United States" as
the chief law enforcement officer.
"Let there be no mistake, Ras-
kobian 'home-rule' means eventual-
ly saloon rule," the league's decla-
ration said.
The declaration of policy was
made public tonight at a banquet
closing the prohibition organiza-
tion's five-day convention.
It covered six primary points, op-
posing repeal, referendums, resub-
mission, state control, modification,
and beer proposals, and said "wets
are trying to saddle on the tax-
payers" expenses of their "feudal
and hopeless" campaign.

Ill feeling between the 25 Japan-
ese and 92 Chinese students in the
University, has been instigated by
trouble in Manchuria and heighten-
ed by a recent campus opinion,
written by Takehisa Miwa, a grad-
uate student from Yokohama, Jap-
an, Robert Suez a special student
from Shanghai, China, president of
the Chinese Students' club, stated
Much, resentment is felt by his
countrymen because of the article
but no immediate trouble is im-
minent, he said. Suez added that
affairs between the Japanese and
Chinese in America had not as yet
reached their climax.
The paragraph in Miwa's article
that is particularly objectionable to
the Chinese is as follows: "The
misunderstood state of Japan in
Manchuria is due to the sentimen-
tal appeal and propaganda to the
world, since the beginning of the
present troubles, by the Young
Chinese leaders, most of whpm have
been educated in the universities
of this country or other foreign

countries, and do not have a realr
understanding of the fundamental
questions of their own country.
These Chinese leaders, unlike mostt
of the Japanese leaders, have a
good knowledge of English and are
able to spread a lot of misinforma-
tion to the outside world, and get
by with it." ,
Suez stated last night that Japan
was "grossly misunderstood" but1
not in the way that Miwd meant.
He said that he could not possibly
see how Japan could gain world1
He stressed the point that it is
Japan and not China who is try-
ing to spread misinformation. "If
Japan had an air tight case against1
China, why didn't she let the world
know what was happening in China
(Manchuria as our friends the+
Japanese prefer to call it). A cen-
sorship comparable only to that

churia by the Japanese military

Meanwhile, Chinesetofficials hoped
for further action by the United
States in the Manchurian conflict.
"A new Washington conference" to
discuss such action was advocated
by Sun Fo, premier of the Nanking,
government. I
An official'Chinese spokesman, de-
clared Japan had been "imperti-
nent" to the United States and "in-
sulting" to China in its reply to
Secretary of State Stimson's note
invoking the nine-power treaty and
the Kellogg pact in the Manchur-
ian affair.
Mr. Henry Pu-Yi, former boy em-
peror of China, came back in the
picture again by way of Shanghai

government had decided to order
his arrest.
The order might be difficult to
carry out, as Pu-Yi is in closely

patches said he was being advocat-
ed for the post of first president o:

tiations are successful, with the ad-
vice and assistance of Japan.
