(By The Associatea r-ress)
FRONT, Nov. 20. - (Exchange Tele-
graph Agency)-The Italian head-
quarters staff admitted today that an
Ethiopian force had made a success-
ful night attack on a column of Ital-
ian troops in camp near Hauzien, in-
flicting heavy Italian losses.
Among the casualties, it was stated,
was Capt. G. Rinaldi, commanding a
cavalry detachment.
LONDON, Nov. 20.-(P)--Mus-
solini's march of conquest into Ethi-
opia received its first setback Wednes-
day with reports that the Ethiopians
had won two sharp engagements on
the Southern front.
At the same time the Roman le-
gions, heavily intrenched around Ma-
kale, were awaiting a big Ethiopian
counter-offensive in the north.
Officers said that thousands of
Ethiopians were massing in southern
Tigre province and that one column
even was marching on Selicot, only
eight miles south of Fascist-occupied
Military observers are uncertain
whether these developments signal a
change of tactics in Ethiopian war-
fare. Until now the natives have re-
treated without resistance, except in
minor skirmishes, and have fortified
themselves in the impassible moun-
tain regions to the south of Makale,
awaiting a further Italian movement
in the north.
Counter-Drive Possible
It was felt that either the pending
visit of Emperor Haile Selassie to the
front will result in a counter-offen-
sive, or that the movement on Selicot
was made to appease the more impa-
tient war chiefs who are restive as
result of the Ethiopian's defensive
Reports of the decisive Ethiopian
victories-but at the cost of hundreds
of casualties-reached Addis Ababa
from the southern front, where Haile

The successful ambuscade of a
train of 72 Italian trucks, carrying'
Somali warriors and munitions, was
described in unofficial reports from
More than 150 Somalis were killed
or wounded while Ethiopian casual-
ties were estimated in excess of 300.
The battle, south of Sasa Baneh on
the left bank of the River Faf an, was
waged without quarter.
At the same time it was reliably
reported that 1,000 of the empire's
crack marksmen, under Fitaurari
(Commander) Bakala Ayela, had
halted an Italian push in an impor-
tant pass in the Radowa Hills, in-
flicting heavy losses.
These hills are about 50 miles

southeast of Sasa Banch, to the east
of the River Fafan, and about 175
miles southeast of Jipiga, key Ethi-
opian city of the south.
How To Combat Tanks
Wolde Giorgis, commanding Ethi-
opian troops which, as announcement
stated, captured six Italian tanks and
killed six Italian officers at Anele on
Nov. 12, arrived in Addis Ababa and
told the Associated Press:
"We do not fear tanks. Once we
are near them they are lost."
He said the six tanks were captured
by cutting them off from the infantry.
Then the Ethiopians poured gasoline
over them and set them afire, "the

1 'Japanese Will Deal Fairly
With Crisis,' Minister Of
War Declares
TOKIO, Nov. 21.- (Thursday) -
(P) - Japanese military authorities
are "highly displeased" at the defi-
nite setback to the North China auto-
nomy movement, the Rengo (Jap-
anese) News Agency reported today
from China.
The set-back as attributed to the
unwillingness of important Chinese
military leaders to join in the scheme.
Japanese sources said that "machina-
tions" of the Nanking government
are responsible for the attitude of the
Chinese generals.
Governor han Fu-Chu of Shan-
tung, whose adhesion to the plan of
autonomy is necessary if Shantung
is to be included in the "independent
area" was reported to have informed
General Sun-Cheh-Yuan, one of the
leading autonomists, that he would be
unable to go to Pieping for a confer-
ence "because of the pressure of offi-
cial business."
Japanese military officials in
Tientsin, Rengo dispatches said, are
"anxious lest the autonomy move-
ment degenerate into a personal bick-
ering between the Chinese leaders."
"Should French intrigues disturb
the peace of North China," the Rengo
(gency continued, "The Japanese
army may be compelled to take defi-
nite action."
(By The Associated Press)
A far-reaching campaign for the
independence of North China abrupt-
ly slowed up Wednesday and Japanese
army leaders in China were reported
to be both annoyed and impatient.
The delay was attributed to a con-
ference in Nanking between General-
issimo Ching Kai-Shek, virtual dic-
tator of the Chinese national govern-
ment, and Akira Ariyoshi.
Japanese officers were understood
to consider the meeting a conciliatory
gesture by Japan and to resent it.
After the conference, Ambassador
Ariyoshi told the Associated Press:
"Gen. Ching Kai-Shek has given me
his solemn assurance that Japan has
no cause for apprehension regarding
North China."
Although the autonomy movement
was slowed up, reports indicated it is
inevitable that it will be carried
through to completion.
Japan's minister of war, Gen.
Yoshiyuki Kawashima, said in Tokio
that if the Nanking government sent
troops to the northern provinces his
country "must take action because it
"would inevitably produce a serious
He asserted Washington and Lon-
don "need not be concerned . . . be-
cause of Japan's manner of dealing
with that crisis will be fair and just."
A source of the Japanese foreign
office attributed the independence
movement in part to American and
British currency policies - Washing-
ton's silver purchase program and
London's support of the Chinese gov-
ernment's new currency plans.
Leaders in North China were in-
structed by Nanking not to negotiate
with the Japanese on the ground that

the issue is a national one. I

The fate of women's Friday night
hours will be determined at 4:15 p.m.
today when the question will be put
to a vote of the members of the Board
of Representatives.
In a surprise vote Monday, the Un-

Should the change from 1:30 a.m.

Lord Jellicoe,
British Naval
Leader, Dies
Led Fleet At Battles Of!
Kiel And Jutland; Taken
By Chill At 75
LONDON, Nov. 20.-(P)-Lord
Jellicoe, Britain's naval leader in the
World War, who bottled up the Ger-
man fleet in the Kiel Canal, squashed
the U-boat offensive and led the fleet
at the Battle of Jutland, died today.
Lord Jellicoe was 75 years old. He
has long been in poor health and

never recovered fully from bronchitis
contracted in 1931 after staying too
long in a Turkish bath.
The immediate cause of his death
was understood to have been a chill
caught while attending outdoor ex-
ercises on Armistice Day.
An attempt to convey the news of
his death to Earl Beatty, who also
played a leading part in the Battle
of Jutland and was almost equally as
prominent as Jellicoe in the naval ac-
tivities of the World War, disclosed
that Lord Beatty also is ill.
His residence said he was in bed
and unable to answer the telephone.
John Rushworth Jellicoe, created
Viscount Jellicoe of Scapa in 1918
and Earl Jellicoe in 1925, entered the
British Navy in 1872 and had a long
and distinguished career.
He was in command of the Grand
Fleet during the war from 1914 to
1916, when he was made First Lord
of the Admiralty, then Chief of the
Fleet. He retired in 1924.
From early youth he followed the
sea. He came of a seafaring family

SHistorical China' Passing As
Japanese Invade Territory

Dr. Stanton Says Start Of
Chinese Civilization Was
In Captured Provinces
"The passing of historic China"
was the way Dr. John W. Stanton of
the history department yesterday
characterized the projected Japanese
occupation of five northern Chinese
These five provinces, he declared,
are not only the second richest sec-
tion of all China, but were the original
center from which the whole of Chi-
nese civilization has developed.
Dr. Stanton, who spent two years
in China and six months in this par-
ticular section, said that this latest
Japanese move is another step - the
most important thus far -in the
gradual partition of Chinese territory
by Japan and Russia in a bitter
struggle for supremacy in Eastern
This struggle, which has been going
on since 1895, has culminated in re-
cent years in the extension of Soviet
influence to Outer Mongolia and Chi-,
nese Turkestan and by the establish-
ment of the puppet state of Manchu-
kuo by Japan, Dr. Stanton continued.
He explained that Japan's contem-

plated action also is motivated by its
desire to maintain important markets
in northern China, which, he said,
are being threatened by a Chinese
industrial revolution and a conse-
quent boom in Chinese industry.
Further moves and counter-moves
of expansion by Japan and Russia are
foreseen by Dr. Stanton, and he re-
gards an eventual clash between the
two as inevitable.
He deplored the 'Japanese policy as
an out-and-out violation of the nine
power pact of 1922, but said that al-
though millions of dollars worth of
American investments are being af-
fected, our state department's atti-
tude so far has been limited to formal
He likened Japan's strategy in act-
ing at the present time with the
world's attention diverted by the
Italo-Ethiopian crisis to the policy
of Michigan football teams of "watch-
ing for the breaks."
The five provinces which Japan
plans to incorporate in an indepen-
dent state under her influence for
possible union with Manchukuo, are
chiefly agricultural, but also contain
the most important cities of north-
ern China, including Tientsin and

Old Sol Visible For

First Time


Nov. 9, Yesterday
Old Sol was visible to Ann Arbor
for the first time in 11 days yester-
day when it shone for 20 minutes.
Not for its lack of sunshine, how-
ever, has November been an unusual
month, Miss Mary E. Lindsey of the
astronomy department said last night.
The unique aspect of this month's
weather has been the small daily
temperature range, the difference
between the mercury readings at 7
a.m. and 7 p.m.
Excepting Nov. 11 when the tem-
perature range was 19.7 degrees, the
daily temperature range has varied
between 8.5 degrees on Tuesday and
2.7 on Nov. 13.
So far this month there have been
15 cloudy days, three partly cloudy
days, and one clear day. A clear day
is when the sun is visible more than 70
per cent of the time, a partly cloudy
day when it is visible between 30
and 70 per cent of the time, and a
cloudy day when it is visible less than
30 per cent of the time.
November, she pointed out, is tra-
ditionally a cloudy month. Last year
there were 21 cloudymdays, seven part-
ly cloudy days, and two clear days.

Washtenaw Literary Class
Cuts Margin Of State As
Delano, Two Others Win
One of the most hotly-contested
class elections in history was run off
yesterday afternoon when junior stu-
dents in the literary and engineering
college flocked to the polls to award
the major share of the spoils to the
State Street Party and the United
It was a day of surprising results
end bitter disappointments to many
Benjamin Cox, Phi Kappa Psi, of
the United Engineers, overturned the
political dopesters' calculations when
he defeated Rush Bowman, Delta
Upsilon, of the Consolidated Engi-
neers, for the chairmanship of the
J-Hop by a vote of 88 to 78.
The unexpectedly large turnout in
the literary college proved a genuine
surprise. Approximately 320 votes
were cast during the two hours and
a half in which the polls were open,
as State Street emerged with a nar-
row victory marred by the loss of the
post of treasurer and two J-Hap com-
mitteeman jobs.
Hard-Fought Presidency
Thomas Oyler, of Beta Theta Pi,
the State Street nominee for presi-
dent, was returned a 146 to 142 vic-
tor over Richard Mavis, Phi Delta
Theta, of the Washtenaw Party. The
presidential fight was characteristic
of a harrowing afternoon of nip-and-
tuck battles which caused many jun-
ior electioneers to which they had
campaigned for their favorites just a
little harder.
Beth Turnbull, State Street can-
didate for vice-president, eked out a
145 to 142 victory over Betty Ann
Wills, her opponent of the Washte-
naw ticket. Jane O'Farral, State
Street candidate for secretary, suc-
2eeded in besting Nancy Olds of the
Washtenaw Party, 146 to 140, but
Fred DeLano, Washtenaw candidate
for treasurer, gave election partici-
pants something of a shock when it
was discovered that he had beaten
Louis Goldberg, State, by two votes,
144 to 142.
An Independent Party in the liter-
ary college ran far behind the two
major machines, polling between 22
and 30 votes for the various positions.
Ballots Rechecked
After the literary college students
had cast their ballots in Room 25
Angell Hall, the results were an-
nounced in rather vague fashion and
the assumption was that State Street
had swept the four major offices. A
~heck-up by The Daily disclosed a
pluralitydin favor of DeLano, how-
ever, and a recount on the voting
machines was deemed advisable by
William R. Dixon, '36, president of
the Men's Council, who is in charge
of the elections.
Dixon, who possesses theonly keys
to the machines, re-tabulated the
vote in the presence of Goldberg and
two other witnesses about 10 p.m.
yesterday, and the victory of DeLano
was pronounced official.
The wild State-Washtenaw battle
was reminiscent of the strife that has
occurred in these groups' clashes in
former years.' In 1933, the State
Street men, then freshmen, emerged
the victors in a heated election. In
1934 the election, termed "the dirtiest
in history," was thrown out and a
substitute election in which only mild
interest was evidenced took place
shortly after.
The State Street Party won three

of the five literary college J-Hop
committeeman positions. Homer La-
