Japan's Reply To Previous
Charges Unacceptable

New Order In Asia
Worries Diplomats
WASHINGTO, Nov. 22--P)--In
an effort to break a diplomatic dead-
lock with Japan, the United States
state department appeared to be pre-
paring tonight to send a new note to
Tokyo insisting that American rights
in China be observed.
Japan's reply to an earlier Ameri-
can note, which demanded the main-
tenance of the open door and com-
plained that Japan was trying to
monopolize Chinese trade, was char-
acterized today by Secretary of State
Hull as unsatisfactory.
Japs Rejected Principles
The Japanese reply had rejected
all major contentions in the earlier
American note and declared that
"ideas and principles" of the past
no longer applied to the Chinese situ-
Hull said today that the Japanese
communication conflicted with the
general position the United States
has taken throughout its history.
Officials acknowledged that it was
the implications in Japan's remarks
about past principles and about the
creation of a "new order" in Eastern
Asia. that troubled them most. Ob-
servers have interpreted the remarks
as an indication that Japan expects
to dictate conditions under which
foreigners shall live and foreign busi-
ness be carried on in China.
Promises Equality
Although Japan promised equality
of economic opportunity in China,
officials here incline to believe she
means that there should be equality
among all foreign nations but that
Japan in China is not a foreign na-

Germany and France exchanged
good-neighbor assurances as the new
French ambassador, Robert Coulon-

Fall Elections
Restore South
To Old Power
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22-(fP)-The
changed party complexion of the new
Congrepss due to Republican gains in
Senate and House is not the only
significant election result which will
confront the Administration leader-
ship when that Congress assembles.
Democratic losses in the north and
west returned the southern and bor-
der state Democrats to the balance-
of-power position in the party that
they held before the Democratic con-
gressional sweeps of 1934 and 1936.
And the Democratic line-up from
the south and the so-called border
states like Maryland, West Virginia,
Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee and
Oklahoma, is virtually unchanged
from the old Congress. The election
brought only a few new faces from
that area.
Already there is speculation as to
just how this realignment of relative
strength between the northern and
western Democrats on the one hand
and those from the "solid south" and
border states on the other may affect
party policy-making either in the
next Congress or in the 1940 presi-
dential race preliminaries.
This situation has intensified the
talk among Washington political ob-
servers as to whether the southern
Democrats will insist that the old
"two thirds rule" be restored at the
Democratic National Convention in
1940. This rule required a two-thirds
vote for a presidential or vice-presi-
dential nomination. For a century, it
gave the solid south virtually a yetc
power over candidates.
It was dropped in 1936 only be-
cause re-nomination of Franklin D
Roosevelt was a certainty. An effori
to revive it in 1940 by party forces
hostile either to a Roosevelt third-
term candidacy or to selection of a
Roosevelt-dictated "New Deal" tickel
appears certain.
Whatever comes of such a move-
ment, the fact is obvious that the
Democratic losses in the 1938 elec-
tion have served to entrench the sout
more firmly than ever in the ke
positions of the new Congress-an

CHICAGO, Nov. 22.- (A) -The'
management of the stock yards today
announced operations would be con-
tinued despite a strike of CIO union-
"We will continue to operate,"
stated O. T. Henkle, vice-president
and general manager of the Union
Stock Yards and Transit Co. "We
have been in business 65 years. We
are going to continue to do business."
He issued this defy an hour before
a trading truce expired at 5 p.m. but
declined to outline his plans for mov-
ing livestock through the nation's
largest market without benefit of
the striking handlers.
Under an agreement with the Pack-
ing House Workers Union, the 60,000
cattle, sheep and hogs -heided into
the corrals since the walkout yester-
day morning were sold.
Pens Are 'dTeeming
The squad mile f pens teemed
with men and animals throughout the
day. Clerks and cQmmission men
guided the stock to the weighing
chutes. Thence they were led to the
slaughter houses.
It was indicated the dispute would
reach a crisis, tomorrow. Approxi-
mately 10,000 head of stock were ex-
pected to arrive from the country
Charles R. Rice, president of the
Chicago Livestock Exchange, made
up of buying and selling agents, told
reporters he had entered into a
"gentlemen's agreement" with the
Union. It will permit the commis-
sion men to feed and water the in-
coming animals.
But farmers had been advised, he
added, not to send any more stock to
the yards.
The accumulation of animals as-
sured continued operation of the
packing plants until the Thanksgiv-
ing holiday at least.
'No Peace Parley


Seek Inquiry
Into Pitt "New
Deal' Athletics.
PITTSBURGH, Nov. 22 -P)- A
long-smouldering controversy over
football at Pitt broke wide open to-
day. with Chancellor John G. Bow-
man assailing interference "from un-
official managers who want to sit in
the press box."
Bowman's outburst preceded by an
hour a charge by Pitt's varsity letter
club, comprising 900 former athletes,
that he had rejected a proposal for
an "impartial" investigation of ath-
letic affairs.
The Chancellor, in one of his in-
frequent addresses to a student as-
sembly, turned suddenly from gener-
alities to a hot blast at critics of the
Bowman "code" which put Pitt ath-
letics on a "strictly amateur basis"
a year ago.
His speech apparently was pro-
voked by the student newspaper's
demand for an explanation of the
athletic situation and ieports of a
threatened strike of freshmen football7
players. The freshmen complained
they were being "dunned" for pay-
ment of tuition notes, which they
claimed they signed as a formality.
Angrily, Bowman denied that he
was unsympathetic to football or un-
friendly to Coach Jock Sutherland,;
pledged continuance of the "code,"
and blamed athletic troubles on "un-
official managers" inside and outside
the university. He added:
"Only half an hour ago I received
a threat, and I have received numer-
ous others, telling me that I must
back down in my stand on Pitt's
athletic policy or take the conse-
Dr. Norman C. Ochsenhirt, head
of the Letter Club, declared Bow-
man refused the suggestion for an
investigation and declined action up-
on a memorandum handed him by
club representatives on Nov. 17.
The memorandum charged Pitt's
athletic affairs were in "a terrible
muddle," laid the blame on inefficient
management, and appealed to Bow-
man to "take hold of this mess and
clean it up. Set our athletic house in

Engineering professors quivered in
their boots yesterday when the
American Society of Mechanical En-
gineer's local chapter announced that
it will hold its annual "Roast" ban-
quet on Dec. 7 at the Union.
The high-spot of the annual af-

venerable "Spoofuncup" to the pro-
fessor who is adjudged the "most lo-
quacious lubricator." According to
Mark Stoddard, '39, publicity chair-
man, the winner is "in reality the
most popular faculty man in the En-

The bonquet also affords engineer-

Traditionally, "anything goes," Stod-

Students Called To Testify
At Questioning Of Loeal
Cigar Store Proprietor
Losses Estimated
To Reach $9,000
A general investigation of football
pools and other gambling devic'es in
Ann Arbor, which have "taken" stu-
dents and townspeople for about
$9,000, was seen in the offing last
night with the arrest and arraign-
ment of John R. Pieters, of Kala-
mazoo, charged with the operation of
one of these pools.
Several students will testify in
Pieter's examination which was set
by Justice of Peace Jay H. Payne
for 2 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1. Among
them is Earl Iolloway, Jr., '40BAd,
of Flint, who lodged the formal c'om-
plaint with Prosecutor Albert J. Rapp.
Complainants Not Liable
The possibility offered by Edward
F. Conlin, counsel for Pieters that
these students, who are prepared to
offer incriminating evidence against
the alleged bookmaker, will be liable
for similar prosecution under the
gambling law, was denied last night
by Prosecutor Rapp, He termed this
(just a "groundless scare."
The charge against Pieters, is the
operation of a football pool based on
chance, Mr. Rapp explained, and this
charge is based on the statute which
holds no one but the operator liable
for criminal prosecution.
Local authorities have been con-
stantly after these bookmakers, the
prosecutor declared, and, their efforts
have been impeded at all times by
their failure to secure persons who
would testify. A general cleanup was
not deemed impossible if adequate
testimony could be secured in the
criminal proceedings against these

Avalanche Buries Towns
And Scores Of Rescuers
After Continuous Rains
CASTRIES, St. Lucia, Nov. 22--0)
-One hundred and fifty persons wereI
believed dead in landslides in the in-
terior of. this British West Indies
island tonight as rescue workers
waded through mud and water seek-
ing other, victims.
A mountainslide eight miles long
buried two hamlets and many of their
inhabitants last night.
Rescue workers laboring all night
recovered 45 dead and 60 injured,
but this morning a new avalanche
buried all of the dead again in addi-
tion to many injured and sevexal
rescue workers. r
Shortly after the first avalanche,
50 laborers were swept into a river
when a house in vWhich they were
sheltered slipped away with an acre
of land. Of the few saved, six died
in the night.
Continuous rains the last three
weeks apparently caused the disaster.
There were reports, however, that
the landslides might be of volcanic
origin, since the meteorological sta-
tion of neighboring Martinique issued
a warning Saturday that disturb-
ances could be expected Monday or

No peace parley was arranged.
Union members-estimated to num-
ber 575 by officials of the organiza-


tion-left the yards after they ceased
work. Pickets paraded at the Halsted
St. entrance. A force of policemen
remained on guard duty.
Henkle said the strike would have
no effect on the International Live-
stock Show. Thousands of prize farm'
animals were scheduled to arrive'
before the exposition opens next Sat-'
urday in the International Amphi-
theatre in the stock yards.
First to reach the grounds .were 45
carloads of prime beef steers from
Schleswig, Ia. They were accom-
panied by 40 farmers, who will care
for them. The stock was moved to
pens near the Amphitheatre.

LANSING, Nov. 22--)-Governor
Murphy said today he was "very sure"
the succeeding Republican State Ad-
ministration will continue the de-
velopment of a retirement plan for
state employes already begun by a
special pension study commission.
Murphy said the study group he
appointed was considering a com-
pulsory retirement clause in legisla-
tion which it is. preparing to submit!
to Gov.-Elect Frank D. Fitzgerald'
within 90 days.
A retroactive provision will correct
injustices resulting from the dismis-
sal of veteran state employes who
failed to qualify for their positions
under the new, civil service system,
he said. Murphy also expressed the
hope that the commission would
"leave the way open for cities and
counties to participate in the plan."
Commission Meets Here Monday
Gov. Murphy's pension plan study
commission will meet here Monday
to begin work on the preliminary re-
port for its proposed pension plan
for state civil service employees.
Whatever plan is recommended will
be on nothing short of actuarial basis,
according to Prof.-Emeritus James
W. Glover of the mathematics de-
partment, the chairman. The plan
will have sound reserves as sound as
those of any insurance department,
he said, with the indication that con-
tribution to the fund may be on a
50-50 basis between employees and
the state.
University Seeking

Students Not Paid
Action by the student was instigat-
ed when Pieters, graduate of the
University in 1922 and owner of the
City Cigar Store at 106 E. Huron
St.. did not pay off students and
townspeople an estimated $3600 in
winnings. Holloway "won" $80 and
other students reported unpaid win-
nings ranging from $1.75 to $00.
The bookmaker's offer to pay $2
for every $1 bet, was rejected by a
crowd of 100 students Monday at the
downtown cigar store. Piete;s said
that his backers' had "skipped" on
him, and he too had been victimized.
Students were also involved in three
other pools which operated from De-
troit and Chicago, and whose opera-
tors also left town this past weekend,
without meeting obligations estimat-
ed to reach more than $9,000, it was
learned last night. One of these, re-
putedly controlled by Harry Gordor

ers at the Richtin Recreation Hall or
