Ask To Lease
New Site For
Bondholders Of Property
At Hill And State Meet
To Make Decision
Ending the dispute over the pro-
posed location of the Michigan Chil-
dren's Institute at the old Hoover
residence on Washtenaw Avenue
formerly the Kappa Sigma frater-
nity, the state welfare commission
yesterday sent to the Ann Arbor
Trust Company, trustees of the prop-
erty, a lease calling for the renta]
of the former Delta Chi house on the
northeast corner of State and Hill
Streets by the Michigan Children's
Institute. The contract cannot be
signed by the trust company until
it has been approved by the bond-
A meeting of these authorities will
be held some time during the next
week, the trustees said. It is ex-
pected that they will approve the
agreement, which calls for imme-
diate occupation upon its acceptance.
The property reverted to the bond-
holders when the fraternity evacuat-
ed it last June.
The lease was signed Tuesday in
Lansing by George R. Thompson,
state budget director. The terms
provide that the state will pay $150
a month for rental, with the option
of purchasing the estate for $30,000
after two years. All necessary re-
pairs and renovations will be made
by the state. A three-months notice
will be required to terminate the
lease after Jan. 1, 1937.
Opposition to the location of the
Institute at the old Hoover estate
was aroused here when members
of the Common Council advanced an
amendment permitting state-owned
buildings, except penal and correc-
tive institutions, to locate in Class
A residential districts. The Council
subsequently voted down the pro-
posal after a public hearing, in which
local citizens voiced their disapproval,
was held. The Delta Chi house is
in a Class B residential district.
An amendment proposed to the
Ypsilanti Common Council Monday
night, which would change certain
sections of the Class A residential
districts to Class B in an effort to
entice the Institute to that city, will
probably be abandoned, city officials
To Ask Parity
At Arms Parley
t Says Japanese will Not.
Begin Building Program
If They Get Equality
LONDON Dec. 3. - (P) - Admiral
Osami Nagano, chief Japanese dele-
gate to the forthcoming international
naval conference, stated today that,
under certain conditions, Japan would
be willing to abolish her submarines.
Outlining the Japanese attitude
prior to the opening of the confer-
ence Dec. 9, Admiral Nagano said his
delegation's primary consideration
was security for Japan.
He said he believed battleships,
aircraft carriers, and large offen-
sive-type cruisers should be abolished
and that Japan should be given
naval parity with the United States
and Great Britain.
The admiral said that if "certain
conditions" were met, Japan would
even abolish submarines, adding:
"But we think Russia, Germany, and
other countries would have to enter
into any agreement involving them."
The coming conference of United
States, Great Britain, Japan, Italy
and Frances does not include Rus-
sia and Germany.
Admiral Nagano declared the
Japanese had not the slightest de-
sire to break up the conference,
adding his country was most an-
xious to see limitation continue on
a basis of equality and security.
He stressed Japan's desire to
economize on naval armament. An
agreement on equality in principle
with the United States, instead of
the present 5-5-3 ration, would not
be followed by a huge Japanese
shipbuilding program, he stated.
Nagano refused to commit him-
self on the British suggestion for a
declaration of building programs.
The Japanese chief delegate as-
serted a pacific non-aggression pact
would be very desirable to Japan
and would go far in giving Japan
the necessary security, but said he
had no instructions to propose such
He refused to comment on the
question of making the Philippine
islands neutral, saying this was out-
side his province.
United States Will Ask Big Nations To Limit Navies
That the presence of codliver oil
or irradiated foods in the diet as
preventives of rickets is entirely su-
perfluous was demonstrated Tuesday
night by Dr. C. A. Lilly of the medical
school in an address before the Jun-
ior Research Club in the Natural Sci-
, Reporting on the results of experi-
ments carried out by himself and Dr.
C. B. Peirce, Dr. Lilly found that these
traditional sources of Vitamin D, the
bone-forming control agent, were no
more effective in producing a healthy
bone structure than any general un-
fortified diet, when fed to a number
of rachitic rats.
After the condition corresponding
to rickets had been developed in the
rats through feeding them a bare
subsistence diet very deficient in both
'phosphorus and Vitamin D. Drs.
Peirce and Lilly investigated the ef-
fects of three changes in their diet.
One group's food was augmented by
.03 per cent visterol. a source of
highly concentrated Vitamin D; a
second group was given .04 per cent
of a phosphate in addition; and a
third was allowed to fatten on scraps
from the Hospital kitchens.

Although facing the fact that Italy wants a navy as large as France's that Great Britain wants more sea
power for her trade lanes, and that Japan wants to increase her navy by two-fifths, United States delegates
to the London naval conference have definite instructions to oppose increases in the world's burden of
naval costs. The U. S. delegation will include William Phillips (right, center), potent undersecretary of
state, while Dino Grandi (upper left), Italian ambassador to England, will head the Italian delegates,
Admiral Osami Nagano (lower left), the Japanese, and Sir Samuel Hoare (right), the British. The confer-
ence opens Dec. 6.
