Above is shown a street scene in Shanghai, Ch ina, where the latest crisis in the Sino-Japanese situ-
ation centers. Japan sent troops and warships to the city to back up demands which included the disband-
ing of anti-Japanese organizations sponsoring the boycott of Japanese goods. The Japanese threatened to
occupy the city unless the demands were met. The map at the right shows the location of many foreign
concessions in Shanghai and the native section of the city.

Ambassador Attends.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 29. - (/F') -
Mindful that the Japanese pledge
against violating Shanghai's inter-
national settlement falls. far short
of removing the peril to foreigners
in China as a whole, the American
Government stood' poised tonight
for any further action needed to
protect its interests.,F
Teaming with it was Great Bri-
tain, whose ambassador, Sir. Ron-
ald Lindsay, twice visited the State
Department during the day
After his first call and a discus-
sion of the Far Eastern troubles at
the cabinet meeting with President
Hoover, .Secretary Stimson an-
nounced the two countries had'
obtained a promise from Japan
that its troops would not occupy
the treaty-protected quarter of
Shanghai .unless the municipal
force became clearly inadequate to
protect life and property."
Later the ambassador communi-
cated to the secretary a confidential
memorandum. This was studied,
and with the latest reports from
American officials in the Orient in
hand, Stimson again conferred with
the President.
A skeptical reception was given,
at the' State Department to the
threat by Chinese military authori-
ties to attack the international
settlement at Shanghai, unless offi-
cials there sought to end the Japa-
nese occupation. There was a tend-
ency not to place too. much credit
in all the information rushing in,
especially in view of conflicting ac-
counts of an armistice having been

in Chapei by observers in the in-

Armistice Fails.
Published reports of a truce were
nulified by the steady advance of
Japanese marines in their onslaught
to 6ccupy Cha'pei and the dogged
resistence of Chinese soldiers as
a a matter of act. an anistice
which did not go into'effect was
arranged between Japanese con-
sular officials and Chiese munici-
pal authorities, with the coopera-
tion of the American and ritsh
consuls, but the ,truce was rejected"h
by both the Japanese and Chinese
military leaders.
The quarters of the Southern
Methodist mission were entered by
Japanese soldiers early this norn-
ing, and the furniture was demol-
ished. They excused themselves by
saying they were searching for guns
and anti-Japanese literature. Mis-
sion officials said they would file a
claim for damages through the
American consulate.
Flames, Gunfire Continue.
The international settlement was
caught between two fires: a threat
by the Chinese command to bom-,
bard this foreign territory unless
authorities used their influence to-
halt Japanese occupation and re-
ports that the Japanese would oc-
cupy the settlement tomorrow with
the approval of the British consul
The crackle of flames, burst of
machine gun fire, and the threat of
bombs, told an anxious community
that the fighting in Chapei was
continuing without quarter into the
second day. The Japane were un-
derstood to have atained many of
their. objectives but failed in oth-
ers, and the outcome of the strug-I
gle was still in doubt.
The British government in Lon-
don announced that it would take
joint action with the United States
in bringing about a cessation of
Shanghai hostilities and requested
a statement from Japan as to her
further ntentions. France and Italy
wereinvited to make simlar rep-

cleared the way for a neutral in-

of the League covenant.1
President Hoover went over the
cri min Washington with his cab-
inet and Secretary of State Stim-
son .anounced that the AmericaA
and British governments had pro-
tested to Japan against posible oc-

tlement. Japan has assured him,
Mr. Simson said, that foreign rights
there will not be infringed.

At Harvard it's the policeman
system; at California it's the honor
system; at Michigan it's every man
for himself, except in the engi-
neering school where the professors
have the honor and the students
have the system.,
And so today the campus takes
off its coat, rolls. up its sleeves and
goes to work on final examinations.
About one third of the students,
however, are still trying to figure
out the examination schedule, if
they were lucky enough to get one
before they were all gone.

One of the favorite procedures
of the foot note artists has been
borrowed from the ancient papyrus
scrolls of the Egyptians. Memory-
savers are written on a long nar-

up on two pencils. By a simple ro-
tation of the pencils between the
thumb and forefinger any fact may
be easily brought to the fingertips,
they claim.
Other artists have been busy
decorating the cuffs of well starch-
ed shirts with interesting facts.
Still others have-gone into training
and spend hours every night trying
to read a blue book, which they
