Japs Charge
U. S. Official
Was Insolent
Claim American Diplomat
Deserved Slap In Face
From Sentry At Nanking
State Department
Reveals Sharp Note
SHANGHAI, Jan. 28.--(Friday)-
()-A Japanese statement today
charged a Japanese sentry slapped
the face of John M. Allison, ranking
United States diplomat at Nanking,
after the American adopted what was
called an "insolent attitude."
The incident was reported to have
occurred Wednesday in Nanking and
a second American, whose name was
not given, was said to have been man-
handled also by Japanese soldiers at
the same time.
The statement, carried by Domei
(Japanese news agency and attrib-
uted to a Japanese military spokes-
man as his account of the episode) al-
Adopts Insolent Attitude
"The case arose from the insolent
attitude adopted by Allison who
sought to deal with Japanese soldiers
as a policeman would treat a law
"It must also be attributed to an
attitude by Allison characterized by
outspoken criticism of Japanese army
practice which he engaged in not-
withstanding his official status."
Domei said Japanese authorities
had apologized and were trying to
settle the incident locally. Allison
protested immediately to the Jap-
anese consul general afte the as-
sault Wednesday. Allison is third see-
retary to the Embassy.
(The State Department at Wash-
ington Thursday made public a sharp
Anerican note, presented to Japan
Jan. 17, protesting against "flagrant
disregard" of American rights by
Japanese troops at Nanking and other
Chinese cities,.
Dispatch Strong Note I
(The note, strongest since the Jap-'
anese -sinking of. th ,American gun-
boat Panay, said the disregard of
American rights could not be recon-
ciled with previous Japanese assur-
ances that American interests would
be respected and demanded the as-
surances be enforced.)
(A Dome dispatch received in
Tokyo said the army announced Al-
lison had been struck by a corporal
and "an investigation reveals the sol-
.dier's outrageous conduct seems trace-
able to a critical attitude on the part
of the American diplomat.")
Japanese reports on the attack con-
flicted. Advices received early today
said Allison was manhandled when he
refused to leave a house where he
had gone with "Japanese gendarmes
to conduct an investigation."

Eighth Choral
Concert Today

To Make L
In Presenta


Gina Cigna, dramatic soprano. will
make her first Ann Arbor appearance
at 8:30 p.m. today in Hill Auditorium
in the eighth program of the Choral
Union series.
Madame Cigna has been known in
this country since she made her debut
at the Metropolitan Opera last season
after having scored successes in lead-
ing opera houses in every country of
Europe. She has also appeared in
this country at the Chicago and San
Francisco Operas.
Born near Paris, she showed artistic
talent when she was young, mainly in
the field of painting. She was sent toy
the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris,
and to the Paris Conservatoire, where
she studied piano. Her parents did not
recognize the quality of her voice,
however, and so she received no for-
mal voice training. She carried on her
training by herself, mainly by listen-
ing to records and going to operas.
She made her professional debut at
La Scala in 1929, under the eri-
couragement of Toscanini.
Her program tonight will include :
"O del mio dolce ardor," by Gluck;
"Danza, danza Fanciulla," Durante;
"Se tu M'ami se sospiri," Pergolesi;
"Divinites du Styx," Gluck; "L'invi-
tation au voyage," Duparc; "Vocalise
Etude," Ravel; "Adieu," and "Tou-
jours," by Faure; "Vissi d'Arte," fron
"Tosca," by Puccini.

Consulted Roosevelt
The Belgian, who came to Wash-
ington ilast year and saw President
Roosevelt in the course of his inves-
tigation preliminary to the report,
urged a conference of representatives
of the United States, Great Britain,
Germany, France and Italy to prepare
the economic pact.
He predicted the agreement "would
impart to the world the impetus
which it is awaiting in order to re-
cover its confidence in the pacific
destiny of nations."
Declaring himself against economic
self-sufficiency, Van Zeeland pro-
posed, first of all, a lowering of trade
barriers. He also favored elimination,
through bilateral agreements, of "a
whole series of regulations or of ad-
ministrative practices which, by a re-
strictive interpretation or by an abuse
of regulations in forces, result in ex-
cluding certain foreign products."
Seek International Standard
An "international monetary staid-
ard to be sought in the reestablish-
ment of the gold standard, though on
a considerably altered basis" was an-
other suggestion by the Belgian.
In order "to return to complete
freedom of all movements of funds"
in international payments, he sug-
"The suppression of all restrictions
on payments for merchandise."
"The past," he said, "should first
be liquidated. The liquidation of the
past implies an agreed adjustment of
external debts which weigh on the
country, as far as may still be neces-
sary and warranted."
His solution was "consolidation" of
the debts, through "bonds issued to
the creditors by the debtor state in
the currency of the creditor."
"International institutions," he
said, should be set up to provide "some
kind of extra facilities for mobilizing
the bonds for commercial purposes."
