Model Senate
To Be Chosen
By P.R.Ballot
Committee Recommends
Limiting Discussion On
National,_World Affairs
Scammon To Head
P.R. Study Group
Election by proportional represen-
tation was unanimously accepted as
the means of choosing members of
the proposed Student Model Senate,
at a meeting of the executive organiz-
ing committee of the Senate yesterday
in the League.
At the same time, the committee
voted to recommend, to the Senate
that it limit its discussion to national
and international affairs as they af-
fect students as residents of the
United States.
Election By States Replaced
The system of proportional repre-
sentation will replace election of
members of the Senate by states, as
previously recommended in first pro-
posals for the organization. A com-
mittee to investigate the most appro-
priate form of "P.R." for the campus
election was organized and asked to
report its recommendations at the
next meeting of the committee.
Richard M. Scammon, will be chair-
man of the committee, with other
members including Virginia Krieghoff,
'38, secretary, Hope Hartwig, '38, Wil-
liam Jewell, '38, Tuure Tenander, '38,
and Phil Westbrook, '40. Professors
James K. Pollock and Arthur W. Bro-
make of the political science depart-
ment will be asked to take part on
the committee.
Non-Citizens Included
By expressly providing for the dis-
cussion of world affairs as they affect
students as "residents" of the United
States, the committee proposes to in-
clude an opportunity for partici-
pation by non-citizen students of the
campus in the activities of the Senate.
With selection of Senate members by
"P.R.," it is hoped that these mem-
bers of the student body will avail
themselves of this opportunity for
Martirt' DWoklki s, :10, chahman

tee to take care of necessary business

tive committee. This meeting will be
on January 11, following the vacation.

Dr. LaFever Is Installed
As President For Year
Dr. Sidney L. LaFever was installed
as president succeeding Dr. Reed M.
Nesbit of the University Hospital at
the annual election of officers of the
Washtenaw County Medical Society
held last night in the Union.
Dr. LaFever was elected a year ago,
but did not take office until last night
because of the society's new practice
of electing its president a year in ad-
Other officers who were elected were
Dr. John W, Kemer, who will be-
come president next December; Dr.
William M. Brace, secretary-treas-
urer; Dr. Leo Knoll, member of the
board of censors; and Dr. John Wes-

Electrical Engineering Students
To Study Room Lighting Systems

Fifty To Conduct Survey
Of Illumination Using
Photometers, Cameras
Lighting conditions in student
rooms will again be subjected to thor-
ough-going technical tests during the
next month when approximately 50
'members of Prof. H. H. Higbie's Elec-
trical Engineering 7 and 7A classes
will survey their own rooms as part
of their regular work in this course.
Examination of the rooms will be
made using some type of photometer
and cameras will be employed in
many cases. Light intensities in vari-
ous parts of the room will be meas-
ured, tabulated and compared. Photo-
graphs will be used to indicate both
the general effects of the lighting sys-
tem and to reveal the presence of
Reports from previous years show
that the majority of rooms thus sur-
veyed have harmful lighting arrange-
ments. One report goes as far as
to say that bad conditions exist in 90
per cent of the rooms on this campus.
Reports condemning the lighting
systems, for the most part, stressed
the difficulty in getting the landladies
to cooperate in their efforts to im-
prove the illumination in the rooms.
In some cases, landladies were said to
have refused to allow the installation
of lights of only slightly higher watt-
age even if the student bore the cost
of buying the new fixtures.
In general the opinion was ex-
pressed that the improvements that
were made would not remain there
after the present occupants left.
Lighting conditions were so bad in

mpossible to study more than an
'our at a time.
A study of the surveys from year
o year reveals that the lighting sys-
tems show little improvement in spite
of the emphasis which has been placed
on good lighting in recent years.
The story of how difficult it is to
get landladies to cooperate in improv-
ing the illumination is told in another
report. The elimination of an espe-
cially bad glare resulting from an
overhead luminare was found to be
advisable. The landlady, however,
refused to do anything about the sit-
uation. The engineering student, be-
ing familiar with her likes and 'dis-
likes, knew that she had a decided
aversion to untidiness.
Covering of the luminare at fault
with a towel served to reduce the
glare somewhat. This was done and
the window shade left open so that
the device would be visible from the
street and consequently visible to the
landlady when she came. The un-
tidy appearance caused the landlady
to help in improving thc iighting ar-
rangements of the room.

UAW Pickets
90 Seized At Ford Plant
In Kansas City
KANSAS CITY, Dec. 14.-(I)-Po-
lice reported the arrest of 90 pickets
throughout today at the Ford Motor
Co. assembly plant where United Au-
tomobile Workers of America have
called a strike. Union leaders said
"a lot more than that" were arrested,
"we don't know how many."
The pickets, including nine women,
were -charged with disturbing the
peace. Police director Otto P. Hig-
gins issued orders to arrest all pick-
ets. He said he agreed with the con-k
tention of Ford officials that there is
no strike.
Forty-nine pickets were arrested
last week and released on personal
bond. Workers left the plant's police
guarded gates tonight without inci-
dent. Company officials said work
progressed as usual.

Strongly Worded Message
Virtually Demands 'Open
Door' Be Kept In China
Jap Apology Pledges
Attack Indemnity
The United States, in a strong,
formal note that covered far more
than the Panay incident, virtually
demanded Japanese pledges yester-
day that China's door would stay
open and 'that all Americans and
American interests in China would be
free from "unlawful interference."
The message, presented by Secre-
tary of State Cordell Hull, was under-
stood to refer to the numerous cases
which have led to U.S. protests,
among them the Japanese taking
over the Chinese customs at Shang-
hai, in addition to the Panay inci-

American, British and Japanese res-
cuers were struggling against ob-
stacles yesterday to return the 75
survivors to Shanghai,
In accoraance with the Hull state-
ment, Admiral Harry E. Yarnell,
commander of the United States fleet
in Chinese waters, rejected ani i-
direct Japanese suggestion that
American gunboats be withdrawn
from the area of hostilities on the
Hull's note asked Japan for "a for-
mally recorded expression of regret"
for the sinking of the gunboat Pa-
nay; "complete and comprehensive
indemnifications"; and "an assurance
that definite and specific steps have
been taken which will insure that

ests and property in China will not be
subjected to attack by Japanese
armed forces or unlawful interference

This last phrase-"or unlawful in-
terference by any Japanese authori-
ties or forces whatsoever"-was re-
garded at the state department as
highly significant. It was termed a
reaffirmation of the principle of the
open door.
The message was received by For-
eign Minister Hirota after Japan
had dispatched a note giving apolo-
gies arid assurances. The latter docu-
ment mentioned that Hirota. already
had~ asked United States Ambassador
Joseph C. Grew to "transmit to the

from the Japanese Government," so

Additional Japanese apologes were
being made to Britain because of the
bombing of British boats on the
Yangtze and to Japan's new anti-
Communist ally, Italy, because of the
killing of the Italian Journalist San-
dro Sandri aboard the Panay.
Tokyo Offers Apology
TOKYO, Dec. 15.-(')-Japan to-
day offered apologies and compen-
sation for her attack on the United
States Gunboat Panay and three
steamers and safeguards for foreign-
ers even before she formally received
President Roosevelt's demands.
Japanese citizens at the same time
halted Americans in the streets of
Tokyo or called at American business
offices to express their personal sor-
row over Sunday's warplane bombing
of the vessels near Nanking.
Foreign Minister Koki Hirota sent
a note to United States Ambassador
Joseph C. Grew in which Japan:
1. Presented her "sincere apolo-
gies" for the attack;
2. Promised to make "indemnifica-
tions for all losses and deal ap-
propriately with those responsible

for the incident";
3. Announced "strict orders" had
been issued "to the authorities on
the spot with a view to preventing re-
currence of a similar incident."
Foreign Minister Hirota presented
a similar note to Sir Robert Craigie,
British ambassador to Japan, con-
cerning the Sunday bombing of the
British gunboats Bee and Ladybird.
