State Department Report
Of Incident Different
From Japanese Version

Attack Unwarranted
WASHINGTON, Jan. 28.-(P)-
Secretary Hull sent instructions to-
night to Ambassador Grew, Tokyo, to
make representations to the Japanese
government regarding the slapping
of American Third Secretary John
M. Allison, Nanking, by a Japanese
At the same time the State De-
partment published an account of the
affair, which is at considerable vari-
ance with the official Japanese ver-
sion, and Secretary Hull took occa-
sion to praise Allison's work.
Hull's representations followed the
recent "emphatic" protest he ad-
dressed to Japan regarding violations
of the American flag and depreda-
tions against American property by
Japanese soldiers.
The State Department disclosed
that not only Allison but another
American was slapped in the face by
the Japanese soldier. This was

yesterday strongly advised students

nerve-stimulating drug to facilitate
study while Dr. Warren E. Forsythe,
director of the Health Service, in a
letter to local drug stores urged
them to "warn and advise against
their use."
The drug, little used here last year,
is sold in tablet form wihout pre-
scription and has replaced caffeine

account, the incident grew out of Al-.

from the agricultural implement shop

Allison and Riggs went to the Ja-i

charge of the Nanking Embassy would
not be punished as he was "only doing

literary magazine, with provisions for
their elaboration, were submitted yes-
terday by the Board in Control of Stu-
dent Publications' committee to four
interested persons: Edward Magdol,
'39, former Daily junior editor and
three members of the English Journal
Club, Giovanni Giovannini, Morris

Meeting exactly one week after it
was appointed, the committee of
Prof. Louis A. Strauss of the English
department, Prof. E. R. Sunderland
of the Law School and Prof. William
A. McClaughlin of the Romance
Languages department laid down the
four point prospectus which, it was
explained, gave no assurance that the
Board would publish the magazine.
Beard Will Pay Costs L
To assure maximum circulation,
the committee stipulated that "the
Board will pay the entire expense of
printing and will distribute it to all
subscribers to the Daily." Magdol's I
petition which prompted the Board
to name the committee sought to re-
vive the Daily's Sunday supplement
of 1922 to 1925.
The Board's committee suggested
that the magazine, literary rather
than of opinion, should be issued
whenever sufficient material war-
ranted its publication. Though the
magazine could be printed at regular
intervals, the committee pointed out
that publication dates set in advance I
would not be binding.
Plan Told To Four
The program was outlined for the1
four interested persons with the re-
quest that they prepare "a plan for1
an editorial organization includingi
a specific editorial personnel, a fore-
cast of the number and sizes of issues
for balance of the year, a name and a3
suitable format."
After the committee has gathered
all data, it will seek the Board's ap-
proval to print the magazine.
Henceforth, the committee decided,
all others interested in working for
the magazine should see one of the
four "representatives of the Univer-
sity literary interests." All informa-
tion coming to them would be trans-

By Mine Union To Face
Charges Of Dualism
MIAMI, Fla., Jan. 28.-()-Wil-

The American Federation of Labor
president, a member of the UMWI
himself, was summoned to appear be-
fore its convention now in session at
Washington on charges of fostering
dual unionism by chartering the Pro-
gressive Miners of America, a rival
of the United Miners in Illinois.
"I wish very much I might meet
my accusers face to face at the con-
vention and make answer to their un-
founded charges," Green declared,
indicating he was trying to wind up
his work here but could not tell yet
whether he would be able to go.
The AFL executive council con-
cluded the mine union was the "fi-
nancial angel," in Green's words, of
the CIO after studying the union au-
ditor's report for the six months end-
ed Dec. 31.
The report showed total income of
the UMW was $1,497,426.62 and Green
said the union paid $1,434,000 into
the CIO in that period, including
$650,000 to the CIO in loans and
$180,000 in taxes, $475,000 and $99,-

States Armament-Building
Plans Of Other Nations
Necessitates Expansion
Strenuous Senate
Opposition Likely
WASHINGTON, Jan. 28.-(P--A
presidential request for the broadest
expansion of the Army and Navy in
the nation's peace-time history went
today to Capitol Hill, where it en-
countered much approval and some
sharp criticism.
Declaring the armed forces "inade-
quate for purposes of national se-
curity," Mr. Roosevelt recommended,
among other things, a 20 per cent
increase in the Navy building pro-
gram at a cost estimated by navy of-
ficers at $800,000,000.
While many legislators called the
recommendation's "modest," "very
good" and "very wise," other state-
ments indicated that Senate debate
would explore all phases of the
Roosevelt foreign policy.
Mr. Roosevelt placed the responsi-
bility for his request "specifically and
solely" upon "the piling up of addi-
tional land and sea armaments in
other countries, in such manner as
to involve a threat to world peace
and security." He promised to con-
tinue his efforts at arms reduction
by international agreement.
His proposals were:
(1) An authorization of $8,800,-
000 for increased Army anti-aircraft
weapons; $6,080,000 of the sum to be
spent in the next fiscal year.
(22 An expenditure of $450,000
for "the better establishment of an
enlisted reserve for the Army."
(3 An expenditure of $6,080,000
for gauges, dies and other "aids to
manufacture" of army materials, $5,-
000,000 to be spent in the next fiscal
(4) An appropriation of $2,000,-
000 for ammunition for the Army.
(5) A twenty-per cent increase in
the naval building program.
(6) The immediate laying down of
two battleships and two cruisers in
addition to the two battleships al-
ready planned for this year and two
already started.
(7) An appropriation of $15,000,-
000 for the construction of small naval
vessels on an experimental basis.
(8) The enactment of legislation
"aimed at the prevention of profiteer-
ing in time of w and the equaliza-
tion of the burdes of possible war."
