China Unified After Bloodless Civil Conflict, Prof. Haydc

China Intesify Feeling

Against Russia
Where before two dissentient
groups severed China politically, now
China has emerged as a unified
country after a bloodless encounter
between the southern Cantonese
forces and those of the National gov-
ernment of China.
This was described by Prof. Joseph
R. Hayden of the political science de-
partment as the incident of great-
est importance which has recently oc-
curred in the Orient. Professor Hay-
den is regarded as an authority on
Far Eastern affairs, and was vice-
commissioner to the Philippine
The Cantonese military generals,
he explained, favoring a more force-
ful policy in dealing with Japan and
opposing Chiang Kai-Shek's methods
of conciliation, led their armies north
but were met by the Nationalist
forces. A crisis had arrived but
without any actual fighting Chiang
Kai-Shek's authority was reaffirmed
by the opposition. Thus, north and
south China, frequently at odds since
the establishment of the republic
were reconciled to form an important
step in China's political development,
Professor Hayden said. However, he
added, time alone will tell whether
the recently achieved unity between
Nanking and Canton will be perma-
Not Seriously Damaged
But, Professor Hayden pointed out
that the status quo in the Far East is
essentially as it has been for some
time. It has not been seriously dam-
aged as yet by the series of incidents
during the last few weeks in which
Japanese in China are alleged by
Japanese to have been assassinated
by Chinese citizens.
The New York Times bplieves that
Japan may use these incidents as an
excuse to urge that the five northern
provinces of China be organized as a
buffer state. However, Professor Hay-
den explained that the situation be-
tween the two oriental neighbors has
been as acute before with ways hav-
ing been discovered to avert blood-
shed, and the same may prove true
of the present near-crisis.
Another angle to the Far-Eastern
situation which has more profound
international significance was also
discussed by Professor Hayden. He
stated that the tension which has
existed for a number of years be-
tween Russia and Japan has re-
mained the same during the summer
months. But the number of serious
incidents along the border of Man-
chuokuo and Russia or Mongolia
have increased during the summer
and, he added, Japan has apparently'
extended her influence into inner
Thus far, however, there has been
no open break between the two coun-
tries. Yet Professor Hayden stated
that it is generally believed in the
Orient that Japan and Germany have
at least an understanding that if
either of them should be attacked by
Russia, they would both join forces.
In discussing the rest of the Far
East, Professor Hayden expressed
great respect for the . achievements
of the government of the Philippine

Commonwealth during its first year.
He lauded the efforts of President
Quezon in causing the passage of
much constructive legislation and al-
though the budget was not balanced
for this year, which some regard as
a major failure, more taxes have been
levied which will favorably affect
next year's budget.

Art Cinema League To Present
Best Pictures In Movie History

Museun Film Library Will
Be Shown This Year At
Lydia Mendelssohn
A series of some of the outstanding
films in the history of the cinema, in-
cluding such pictures as "The Great
Train Robbery," "A Trip To The1
Moon," and D. W. Griffith's "Intoler-
ance" will be exhibited during the;
coming year by the Art Cinema,
League, Mitchell Rashkin, manager of;
the League announced recently.
The pictures are part of the film
library which has been assembled by
the Museum of Modern Art, under the
direction of John E. Abbott, and with
the assistance of the film industry
and some of its leading directors, pro-
ducers and stars. The purpose of the
film library is suggested in a report
to the Museum.
"There exists a widespread demand
for the means and material for
studying the motionpicture as art,
yet the bulk of films, both domestic
and foreign, which are of importance
historically or aesthetically are in-
visible under existing circumstances,
and are in serious danger of being
permanently lost or destroyed by the
action of time."
The purpose of the Museum of
Modern Art's film library was there-
fore stated to be; "To trace, catalog,
assemble, exhibit and circulate to
museums and colleges single films or
programs of films in the same man-
ner in which the Museum traces, cat-
alogs, exhibits and circulates paint-
ing, sculpture, architectural photo-
graphskand modelsor reproductions
of works of art so that the film may
be studied and enjoyed as any other
one of the arts is studied and en-
The films are divided into a num-
ber of series, the first, which will be
shown here this year, being "A short
survey of the film in America, 1895-
1932." This group opens with "The
Execution of Mary Queen of Scots,"
filmed in 1893, and closes with
"Steam Boat Willie," A Walt Disney
short filmed in 1928. There are 17
films in the entire series, and they
will be shown in five seperate chron-
ological groups.
Other of the pictures which will be
shown are "The New York Hat," with

Mary Pickford and Lionel Barrymore,
"Queen Elizabeth," with Sarah Bern-
hardt and the Pathe filming of
"Faust" made in 1905.
The terms under which the films
are rented out by the library forbid
the selling of admissions to showings,
which are intended only for mem-
bers of the organization which has
obtained the films. To make the films
available to as wide an audience as
possible, the Art Cinema League will
sell 650 memberships enabling the
member to enjoy the entire series,
which will begin this fall. Programs
explaining the historical and artistic
importance of each film will be dis-
tributed at each showing in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Dorothy Goebel, '39,
Is Back In School
Dorothy Goebel, '39, of Detroit, who
was severely injured in astoboggan
crash in the Arboretum last February,
has fully recovered and is now back
in the University as a second-semes-
ter freshman.
The accident in which Miss Goebel
was seriously hurt occurred when an
11 foot toboggan on which she and
two companions, Elizabeth B. Hen-
derson, '38, and Madeline Meyers, '39,
were riding crashed into a tree. Miss
Meyers suffered a bad scalp lacera-
tion. Miss Henderson was not in-

Establish New
War Laboratory
Classes Will Use Precision
Instruments In Measuring
And GaugingWork
The second precision laboratory to
be installed in a university has been
established here by the War Depart-l
ment, and will be available for class
study in measuring and gauging.
Including precision instruments
such a the super-micrometer that
measures to 0.0001 of an inch, the
laboratory lists all types of devices
needed to check the tools used in
accurate processes in modern indus-
During the school year the labora-
tory will be used to instruct engi-
eering students in precision methods,
but at all times it will be held in
readiness for war-time use. Prof. O.
W. Boston, director of the Depart-
ment of Metal Processing, will be
custodian. This is one of the most)
completely outfitted gage laborator-
ies in this section of the country.
Stanfrod University has such a lab-
oratory, and there are six others
located in' government arsenals.
Among the advanced type of.
measuring devices installed are those
which make use of light wave inter-
ference, making simple measure-
ments to one-millionth of an inch.
One instrument of this kind is ac-
curate enough to show the bending
of a solid steel bar from the pressure
of one finger. A bar, being measured,
will start almost immediately to in-
crease in length due to the heat
radiated from the person's body. Be-
cause of the need for precise
measurements, the room temperature
must be kept standard ,in fine
measurement work.
