Japanese Charge '

TOKYO, Oct. 9.-(Saturday)-(1P)
-The Japanese foreign office charged,
China with the responsibility for the
Sino-Japanese conflict today in a,
formal answer to condemnations o
Japan by the United States and the<
League of Nations.
"It is the Chinese governmenta
which is violating the spirit of the

LONDON, Oct. 8.-(A)-Prime-1
Minister Neville Chamberlain tonight
promised President Roosevelt Great
Britain's whole-hearted cooperation
to end "the sickening and horrifying
spectacle" of two major wars.
The Prime Minister also cautioned
Premier Mussolini of Italy that last-
ing Anglo-Italian friendship depends
on Italy's decision on withdrawal of
Italian volunteers from the Spanish
civil war.
While Chamberlain was speaking
at a conservative party mass meeting
at Scarborough, there were reports
from Rome that Italy was reinforcing
her garrisons in Libya and from Gib-
raltar that 4,000 to 5,000 troops of
undetermined nationality had landed
at Algeciras, in southern Spain.
"Three days ago the attention of
the world was arrested by a clarion
call from the other side of the At-
lantic, as welcome as it was timely in
its utterance," Chamberlain said.
"Hitherto it has been assumed the
United States, the mst powerful
country in the world, would remain
content with a frankly isolationist
"But Mr. Roosevelt has seen that
if-what he calls an epidemic of world
lawlessness is allowed to spread, no
country will be safe from attack:
"In his declaration of the necessity
for a return to belief in the pledged
word and the sanctity of treaties he
has voiced the convictions of this
country as well as his own, and in
his call for concerted effort in the
cause of peace, this government will
be whole-heartedly with him."

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8.-(P)-An
international conference to discour-
age Japanese ",aggression in China

Hugh Wilson, for the United States,
and V. A. L. Mallet for Great Britain

rangements, with the result that a
date and place for the meeting may
be announced within a few days
Their meeting at the state depart-
ment was preceded by significant de-
velopments both here and in Great
Returning from the western trip in

MADRID, Oct. 8.-(P)--Reports
from Tarragona, on Spain's eastern
coast, quoted shore observers today as
saying an Insurgent airplane flew
over a British merchant ship eight
miles offshore and dropped several
The observers said the ship was
not damaged but was forced to change
its course several times.
Insurgent planes also raided Reus,
10 miles northwest of Tarragona, and
Alicante, on the southeastern Spanish
coast. Bombs fell near the Alicante
breakwater, injuring 15 persons.
Madrid newspapers expressed the
hope that France immediately will

Conflicting Interests Need
Not Interfere, He Says;
They Can Be Tabled
Arguments attempting to prove
that Italy and German could not ally,
because of their conflicting interests
in Austria, the plight of the Germans,
in South Tyrol, and the force of cen-
turies of conflict between the two
peoples, were discounted yesterday
by Prof. Howard M. Ehrmann of the
history department.(
He pointed out that alliances are
of use to states quite apart from the.
question of mutual support in the
event of war. Alliances frequently
serve the immediate purpose of
strengthening the hands of govern-
ments in the conduct of their for-
eign relations, he explained.
Professor Ehrmann believes that
conflicting interests are not neces-
sarily a barrier, as these can be
temporarily tabled in order to present

This statement comes on the heels
of the proclamation yesterday of
Japanese invasion in which Mat-
sui declared the. Japanese army
"is now prepared to use every
means to subdue its opponents."

Divided Over
Liquor Control Members
Approve Anti-Gambling
Restriction, Then Split
LANSING. Oct. 8.-(P)-Mediation
powers of Governor Murphy that al-
ready have cemented one split in the
ranks of the state liquor control com-
mission, were needed again today as
the commission approved a contro-
versial anti-gambling restriction, only
to split again, two to two, over an
$18,000 appropriation to install a tab-
ulating system, in the commission's
offices here.
Members of the Liquor Control
Commission, the guiding words of the
Governor still in their ears, passed
by a three to one vote the ruling that
banned all games of chance from
drinking establishments. The lone
rebel was Commissioner V. F. Gor-
Passage of the anti-gaming rule
brought to an end a controversy that
has plagued the commission since it
first adopted the regulation more
than two months ago.
Originally, the rule was designed

to oust slot machines from drinking
establishments. With the one sweep-j

nts Arguments
many Can't Ally
a united front in the furtherance of
interests held in common.
He went on to say that Italy and
Prussia had allied in 1886, with a
view to a war on Austria, and that
between 1882 and 1915 Italy had
been a member of the Triple alliance,,
along with Germany and Austria-
Hungary, although the latter state
still held lands inhabited by Italians.
Regardless of any alliance, Italy'
would only support Germany in the
event of a war if the Italian govern-
ment considered that to be her inter-'
est, Professor Ehrmann believes. He
drew attention to the situation in
1914 when Italy, an ally of bothGer-t
many and Austria-Hungary, declinedT
to fight and instead proclaimed hers
"In 1914 Italy interpreted her ob-t
ligations under the terms of the
treaty of alliance in such a fashionT
as to justify a policy of neutrality,"
Professor Ehrmann said. "From then i
until May, 1915, Italy used the pro-t
visions of that alliance to seek a ter-
ritorial compensation from Austria-
Hungary in return for a continuation
of that neutrality.
"During the period from March 4 to'
May 24, 1915 the negotiations with,
the Central Powers were paralleled
by dealings with the Allies, looking

Inquiry Proves Life

HONOLULU, Oct. 8.-(/P)-An in-
vestigation today apparently elimin-
ated the possibility that a deflated
rubber life raft found on the island
of Hawaii came from the ill-fated
plane of Amelia Earhart and Fred-
erick J. Noonan.
In Clifton, N.J. officials of air
cruisers, Inc., the firm which sup-
plied Miss Earhart with a two-place
raft for her world flight, said thepraft
found in Hawaii bore markings dif-
ferent from the one they furnished.
Naval and commercial fliers said
the raft was not of the type they used.
George Palmer Putnam, husband of
Miss Earhart, and others who took
part in the flight preparations ex-
pressed doubt that a raft would have
floated to Hawaii from the area in
which Miss ,Earhart vanished July 2
while attempting to fly 2,500 miles
from Lae, New Guinea, to Howland
They said currents about Howland
would have carried the raft westward.

Gjerstad Holds'
Ancient Cyprus was a great me-
diator of culture between the Orient
and the Occident, according to Dr.
Einar,. Gjerstad, who lectured yester-
day in Natural Science Auditorium
on "The Excavations in Cyprus." Dr.
Gjerstad was head of the Swedish
Cyprus expedition from 1927 to 1931.
Dr. Gjerstad traced the history of
Cyprus, based upon excavations made
there, from the Stone Age to Roman
times. He told of the discovery of
large milk bowls, tending to show
that the early Cyprians were engaged
in agriculture. Ancient Cyprus was
a strong commercial nation, he said,
and there is proof of trade with Syria
and Egypt and of immigration from
Asia Minor.
Increased immigration threatened
the culture of Cyprus, the lecturer
added, but assimilation was accomp-
lished by 1,000 B.C. Colonists from
Greece and the Levant came to Cyp-
rus, Dr. Gjerstad said, but shortly
