As far as the Pacific Islands are
'concerned, Professor Calderwood be-
lieves it is certain that Japan will not
give up her share.
Australia, too, has reiterated many'
times the feeling that she cannot be
expected to give up the tremendous
amount of capital invested in im-
provements for the benefit of her
mandates.
New Zealand, at the present, a
strong advocate of collective security
arrangements, might have considered
the return of her mandates to the
Weimar Republic but not to the pres-
ent Nazi government with its totali-
tarian ideas, Professor Calderwood
said.
The possibility of Germany obtain-
ing some of the Portuguese colonies
is not very great, Professor Calder-
wood said. An interesting occurrence
in connection with this development
is the publication of a Portuguese bul-
letin purporting to prove the superior-
ity of Portuguese administration over
that of all other colonial powers. This
might very well be an advance guard
against possible German charges of
maltreatment of natives such as those
preceding the Italian entrance into
Ethiopia.
Salvation Army Feeds
Homeless At Christmas
While most of Ann Arbor sits down
to its Christmas turkey, the local
branch of the Salvation Army will be
busily rushing bushel baskets cram-
med full of food to indigent families.
And those baskets will be the final
i fruition of weeks of work, accord-
ing to Major A. J. Robbins of the
local Salvation Army branch.
Already the "Salvation Army has
had its Christmas kettles on down-
town streets for two weeks.
