soldiers and troops loyal to the government of President Grau San Martin. Members of the ABC, Cuban
secret society seeking reinstatement of Carlos Manuel de Cespedes as president, retired to the fortress but
surrendered after a day of bitter fighting. Loyal soldiers, pictured here, are shown on the firing line during
previous disorders.

In order to more completely fulfill
the needs of the women on campus
interested in sports the Women's Ath-
letic Association executive board re-
cently altered the intramural and
W.A.A. point systems, Billie Griffiths,
'35, president, announced yesterday.
The student may work at the same
time to win points for her W.A.A.
letter as well as gaining points for
the participation cup given to the
sorority or dormitory which has the
greatest percentage of its members
active in sports. The awards for the
individual are a small "M" for 300
points, the privilege of buying and
wearing a W.A.A. pin for 600 points,
and a large "M" for 1,000 points.
Points may be earned in either
major sports or individual activities.
The major sports are hockey, basket-
ball, and baseball; the players on the
first team receive 100 points and
those on the squad 50 toward their
W.A.A. letter. The individual activ-
ities include such sports as riding,
swimming, badminton, bowling, rifle,
tennis and hiking. The winner of an
individual tournament receives 50
points toward her W.A.A. award.
The houses entered in the intra-
mural hockey or basketball tourna-
ment receive 25 points toward the
participation cup and, if winners, re-
ceive 100, or 50 if they place sec-

five points for the house, and winners
add 100 points toward the cup. Thus
a woman may gain 50 points toward
her W.A.A. award by winning a
bowling tournament and gain 105
points toward the cup for her house.
Among the new changes instituted
are the requirements for active mem-
bership, which state that a student
must have earned 50 W.A.A. points
to have -the privilege of voting or
holding any office in that organiza-
tion. Another alteration is that the
season for individual sports is limited
to a 12-week period. No woman may'
earn team and individual points in
the same season; for example, she
may not enter basketball and bowling,
tournaments in the same season.
Remers Book On
IChina Is Published1
Publication of "A Study of Chinese
Boycotts," a 300-page book by Prof.
C. F. Remer of the economics de-
partment, by the Walter Hines Page
School of International Relations of
Johns Hopkins University was an-
nounced yesterday.
Professor Remer, who has spent
considerable time in China and who
is considered an authority in the field
of international economic relations,
treats not only the present situation
of China but the possibility of eco-
nomic effectiveness of the boycott as
a means of non-violent coercion.
In the gathering of data and sta-
tistics and in the writing of the book,
Professor Remer was assisted by Wil-
liam B. Palmer of the economics de-
partment.
The study is especially significant,
Professor Remer believes, because
China has used more effectively than'
any other nation the boycott which
is provided for in the Covenant of
the League of Nations.
Professor Remer was in China
from 1912 to 1922 and again in 1930-
31. In May of this year he had pub-
lished a book on "Foreign Invest-'
ments in China." The present work
has been in preparation for over a
year.

Rice, Famous
Playwright, To
SpeakSunday
Elmer Rice, noted playwright, will
speak here Sunday night at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre under
the auspices of the Hillel Players, it
was announced yesterday by Law-
rence Levy, '34, president. His subject
will be "The Future of the Theatre."
Tickets will be on sale in Angell Hall
lobby today and tomorrow, and at
the Lydia Mendelssohn box office
Saturday and Sunday. Admission will
be 50 cents.
In 1929 he was awarded the Pulit-
zer Prize for his "Street Scene." His
plays have been translated into many
languages and have been published in
book form. He blasted theatrical tra-
dition when, as an unknown, he had
his first play accepted through the
naive procedure of mailing it to a
producer.
Mr. Rice first studied for law, but
became so interested in drama that
he took that field as his life work.
Some of his works are "The Adding
Machine," which was produced by
Play Production here, "Street Scene,"
the stage and screen success, and,
Counselor at Law," in which Paul
Muni became a big success.

Kohn Denies Hiring
Of Architects For
.PW ABuilding
A complete denial that the Public
Works Administration was the proper
agency for hiring architects to de-
sign buildings which are being built
with the aid of Federal funds was is-
sued recently and appeared in the
November issue of Architectural Fo-
,rum, architects' trade magazine.
The statement, from Robert D.
Kohn, director of housing for the
PWA, reads as follows: "So far the
Public Works Administration has had
nothing directly to do with the en-
gagement of architects for projects
on which they are going to make
loans. School buildings, hospitals,
and other structures of an institu-
tional nature, which are eligible un-
der the general "Public Works defi-
nition," as well as housing projects
presented for our consideration all
come in completely 'supplied' with
architects and engineers.
"These men have been, of course,
selected either by the municipalities
and states or by the local corpora-
tions presenting the housing projects.
Where Federal public buildings are
involved the plans are in charge of
the fourth assistant secretary of the
Treasury. The PWA has no official
knowledge of how the architects are
selected there nor is it officially con-
cerned in the matter."
Further statements, also in Archi-
tectural Forum, stress the fact that
official representation in Washington
will not be of any assistance to arch-
itects and engineers who desire to
receive government contracts. While,
no prosecution is being made of those
who do make such representation,
the Treasury Department has an-
nounced that the practice will be out-
lawed.
March Will Talk On

Seventeenth Century Persian fres-
coes which havenbeen reconstructed

lated by the American Institute for
Persian Art and Archaeology. This
exhibition was one of those shown'
last year at the Museum of Modern
Art in New York City and is said
to have received particular commen-
dation from the New York critics.
This exhibition opens Nov. 16 and

Interview Men
In Regard To
RuleViolations
More than 200 men students who
have been violating the Regents' rule
by living in apartments without se-
curing the permission of the office of
the dean of students are being inter-
viewed by Prof. Fred B. Wahr, as-
sistant dean.
"We are judging each case upon its
individual merits," Professor Wahr
said, "and are not laying down any
blanket rules about violations." The
rule which the Regents passed in
June, 1930, reads, "All men students
in the freshman class must live in
approved men's rooming houses and
no unmarried male student may be
allowed to live in an apartment. The
dean of students is given authority
to make exceptions to this rule."
An apartment has been defined by
the office of the dean as "a room or
group of rooms, with or without
kitchen and bathroom facilities,
which is not under the direct super-
vision and care of a responsible
householder (a woman) and so af-
fords its occupants opportunity for
entertaining mixed company; being
so located that the University rules
and regulations governing approved
rooming-houses do and can not
apply "

tures will be given today by Dr. Carl

The lecture will be largely devoted
to a discussion of the aims and
methods of archeology and will also

their histories, and their contribu-
tions torthe present American cul-
ture.
