PRINCETON, N. J., March 3.-As
a result of "Bfcker Monday," the an-
nual brawl which follows the selec--
tion of members of the eating clubs
here, several students found them-
selves in peculiar circumstances the
"morning after."
One individual found himself lying
across the aisle of a prominent
church, another awoke somewhere in
the stacks of the library. A third
found to his embarrassment that he
had spent the night on the ties of
I railroad tracks in the vicinity.

SYRACUSE, March 3.-Students
protested recently against the use of
cribbing machines in honor system
examinations at Syracuse University.
During recent iid-year examinations
five engineers of the College of Ap-
plied Science walked out of the ex-
amination room declaring that they
refused to compete against students
cheating to pass the test.
Rigid investigation by the faculty
showed that "cribbing machines,"
consisting of long strips of onion-
skin paper rolled at either end on
match sticks, were e ¢Id to the stu-
dents. The entire course was outlined
on the paper and students, by skill-
ful mahipulatoirmif the palhs of
their hands, were able to find the
answer to any question asked.

Dr. S. E. Fagerstrom, professor of
history at Michigan State Normal
College, Ypsilanti, will discuss "Man-
churia, America, and the League of
Nations" at 4:15 p. m. Tuesday in
Natural Science Auditorium.
Professor Fagerstrom has recently
returned. from Geneva, where he
spent some time in studying the sit-
uation. A graduate of the University
of Chicago, he received his Ph.D. at
Michigan. He was born in Sweden,
coming to the United States when 19
years old.
The lecture is being sponsored by
the Tolstoy League. According to Dr.
Francis Onderdonk of the School of
Architecture, it should be of special
interest to those opposed to Japan-
ese imperialism in Manchuria.


Oriental travelers, many of them'
but recently returned from interior
points in China and Japan, report E
nothing untoward in their observa-
tions, he said. "This perhaps is quite
natural inasmuch as very few tour-
ists and only a small number of bus-
iness men have real occasion to go
far from the more important Asiatic

China from well north of Peiping
downward are as safe to travel in to-
day as any country in the world," he
continued. American representatives
of Oriental tourist bureaus state that
everything is as normal in Japan asj
it is in this country, and the same)
is true of all countries in this area.
Mr. Randall added the further'
comment that the tourist travel in
the Far East in the last year or so,
and particularly in China, has on
been moderately reduced. He s-
however, that most of the travelers

yesterday to attend a meeting of the

The Pack board met to pass on ap-
