Suddenly Ends Situation
4hich Threatened, Peace
of Eltire World.
HOLD ARMY READY

Calls on Other Leadi qg Powers
to Enforce Terms of
New Truce.
TOKIO, May 11.-(AP)-The Jap-
anese govcrnmcnt (innounced today
it had decided to withdraw all the
rest of its troops from Shanghai,
ending with an unexpected sudden-
ness a situation which for four
months has threatened the peace
of the world.
The announcement was made by
a government spokesman at mid-
day. He said the cabinet made the
decision at a meeting Tuesday.
The matter was laid before Em-
peror Hirohito this afternoon and
approved by..him, after which the
general stalil tolegrtp dcl orders to
Gen. Shirakawa, Japanese army
commander at Shanghai, to hold all
army forces there in readiness to
return to Japan. The spokesman
said the movement was expected to
be completed within a month.
From then on, the spokesman
said, Japan expected the United
States and other powers interested
in Shanghai to see to it that the
terms of the recently signed truce
agreement were observed by Crina.
The troops, once returned, would
be held in readiness to return
should a "genuine emergency" de-
mandit, he emphasized, but he
added that the government in the
future would probably be slow to
decide such an emergency existed
and would not consider minor in-
fractions of the truce by the Chin-
ese reason for dispatching troops.
"The decision is due to the Jap-
anese government's desire to con-
form to world opinion," he said,
"and to prove that Japan had no
territorial or other ulterior motives
in sending the troops to Shanghai."
The withdrawal will mean a re-
turn to conditions as they existed
before the outbreak at Shanghai
last January which cost thousands
of lives, both Chinese and Jap-
anese, and the destruction of mil-
lions of dollars worth of property.
Since the withdrawal of the 14th
division from Shanghai to be sent
to Manchuria, announced by the
war department Tuesday, only
about 15,000 Japanese troops re-
main there.

In 1920 the policy of having regu-
lar monthly meetings was begun.
Usually at these meetings, one or
two short plays were given by mem-
bers of the group and helpful crit-
icisms were offered from the floor.;
The opportunity for practical ex-
perience was thus extended to every
member of the club.
These meetings were opened to
the public for the first time in 1924
and, from that time to the present,
a large attendance has been as-
sured for the plays, which are not
only entertaining but also careful-
ly and ably prepared.
Meanwhile, the club continued
to present its one big play a year,
which had now come to be regard-
ed as one of the principal social,
as well as dramatic, events of the
year. "Alice-Sit-by -the-Fire," in
1920, marked the first of the plays
directed by Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson
of the Engineering English depart-
Mnent. Under his supervision, great
progress was made in securing
greater attention to details of a
technical nature.
Professor Nelson was in charge
of most of the clubs work from 1920
Confers With Senate Members
on Projected Budget Cut
of $300,000,000.i
WASHINGTON, May ll.-(AP)-At
a bi-partisan White House break-
fast with members of the new Sen-
ate Economy Committee, President
Hoover today set under way a new
money saving program in the Sen-
ate along the same lines as that
riddled by the House.
The drive is intended to save
$300,000,000 or more through re-
duced appropriations and govern-
mental consolidations.
Many of the items of the original
House Economy Bill were discussed,
including the five-day week and
payless furlough plan for Federal
employes.
Ogden L. Mills, secretary of the
Treasury, was appointed spokesman
for the group breakfasting with the
President, a role he has assumed
following all of the series of recent
White House larl]eys.

Comedy club's 193 l organization
.* * *
co 1926 and gave to every one of
the annual plays a professional fin-
ish not often found in strictly ama-
teur performances. "Mr. Pim Pass-
es By," "Pygmalion," "Captain Ap-
plejack"-all were worthy of a
group of actors of twice the exper-
ience and yet retained the spon-
taneity of amateur work.
The play "Great Catherine," in
1926, established several records. It
was the first time that Comedy
club essayed to put on a second
big play in one year, and also
marked. the first of the student-di-
rected productions. The play en-
Joyed a record run of ten days.
Comedy club had by this time
attained a high degree of efficiency
in its organization. Try-outs were
regularly held at the beginning of
the school year, and there was al-
ways a great deal of competition
for the places which were open.
Those trying out for positions on
the technical staff were given work
on the club's own productions.
The club continued giving two or
three public performances a year,
usually in Sara Caswell or Mimes
theatre, doing the best they could
with the facilities at their com-
mand. In 1919 came the comple-
tion of the Women's League theatre
and Comedy club was given the
honor of officially opening the hall.
Clemence Dane's "Granite" was se-
lected for the occasion and present-
ed on May 6.
Since the improvement in facili-
ties brought about by the new the-
gtre, interest in dramatics has been
raised to a high level at Michigan.
Comedy club has benefited both di-
tectly and indirectly since more tal-
ent than ever before is finding its
way into the club.
Last season, Comedy club pre-
'ented "Straight-Jacket," a drama
written by Prof. John L. Brumm
of the journalism department. Oth-
_r plays still remembered from last
year are "Olympia" and "Pierrc
Pathelin."
"The Streets of New York" and
Anthony and Anna," presented
this year, have been the club's pro-
ductions up to date. The proceeds
from the first play were donated
to the community fund, for which
action Comedy club was generously
praised. The coming performance
will be the third this season.

NHALING has long been an "un-
touchable"... a subject taboo in
the tobacco trade... a "sacred cow"!
Why?... Because in every tobacco leaf
-even the finest, the mildest-nature
hides certain impurities which, when
not removed, are unkind to delicate
membranes!

Luckies created that process. Only
Luckies have it!
Do you inhale? Remember-more
than 20,000 physicians, after Luckies
had been furnished them for tests,basing
their opinions on their smekingexperience,
stated that Luckies are less irritating
to the throat than other cigarettes.
