RIVERSIDE, Calif., Dec. 13.-(Spe-
cial t r he Daily)-Japanese expan-
sion i, riot new, but a phenomenon
as old ;ts the Christian era, declared
Prof. Robert B. Hall, of the geography
deparnmrent in an address yesterday
before .he sixteenth annual conven-
tion of ;he 'Institute of World Affairs.,
The only thing that has changed
Japan,.'e empire-building is a new
world .der that has altered the mo-
tivati o for expansion, Professor Hall
assert;. Japan's quest for empire
today, ne explained is a quest for
raw materials and markets in the
rich and populous areas of eastern
Asia. Previously, the Japanese
pushed outward either because of
popul.tion pressure or for strategic
reason:: after the coming of the wes-
ternei to the Far East.
The Japanese have not colonized
and c:-aot be expected to colonize
the teii ories they are taking on the
Asiatic continent, said Professor Hall.
"Unqutestionably," he declared, "the
prima - urge is to secure control of
the cc(a , the iron, the salt and the
cotton of North China and to insure
some 8) millions of new customers
for th. products of Japan's factories."
If, as it now appears, North China
becomes a Japanese dependency, Pro-
fessor Hall continued, a mighty em-
pire, rich in raw materials and con-
tainin: a tremendous population, will
have bee-n achieved. With Shensi
and tle northern provinces, he said,
the Japjanese Empire will have a
popul" tion of 250 million, second only
to the British Empire. Should the
Japane, coniquer all of China "there.
would be a total of more than 600
million pecple-greater than the
British Empire-well over one-quar-
ter of the world's population."

German Club Plans
Yuletide Festivities
A Christmas party in traditional

Oscar Bi::by, Grad., president.
The chorus of the Verein will pre-
sent a e :'al Christmas songs in Ger-
man and the members will join in
such numbers as, "Stille Nacht," "0
Tannenbaum" and other yuletide
songs familiar to the German people.
Refreshments and games will also
feature the party, Bixby said, and
it Is rnumored that a faculty member
in the guise of Santa Claus will hand
out small gifts. All students interest-
ed in German are invited to attend
and are requested to bring a 10-'
cent gift.
Christmas Parties
Planned By Alumni
(Continuted from Page 1)
lime next week. Archie Kodros, cap-
tan-elect of the football team will
be guest of the St. Louis Club while
Norman Purucker, graduating mem-
ber of the football team, will be hon-
ored by the Youngstown Club. The
Schenectady Club has arranged for
a dinner to be given at the Van Curl-
er Hotel in Schenectady on Monday,
Dec. 19.
It is estimated that approximately
ten other alumni clubs have made
tentative arrangements for entertain--
ing undergraduates from their re-
spective cities.


A traffic increase of 400 cars daily
per year at the Straits of Mackinac
was noted by Prof. James H. Cissel
of the structural engineering depart-
ment, who adlvocated the erection of
a Mackinac Straits Bridge in a
speech last night before a meeting of
Sigma Rho Tau, honorary engineer-
ing speech society.
This increase represents as iany
cars as one boat can transport in a
day. In other words, one boat must be
added to the present fleet every year
to keep pace with the traffic.
In advocating a bridge, Professor
Cissel pointed out that 20 million
people 'now depend on Michigan's
forest areas and streams for their
recreational needs and one-third of
the area-is in the Upper Peninsula
which has no connection, except a
bottleneck between Lake Michigan
and Lake Huron. Three of the coun-
try's major highways terminate at
Mackinac with no extension except
by ferry.
Bridges have already been con-
structed with more difficult condi-
tions to work against than are found
at Mackinac.
