In Limitation

Wilson Declares Geneva

To Illustrate Difficulty
Of Reaching Accord
The last ten years have seen enor-
mous progress indthe limitation of
armaments, declared Prof. George
Grafton Wilson, of Harvard Univer-
sity in the concluding /lecture last
night of-the Conference for Inter-
national Law Teachers series. This
has been done in spite of the fact
that at the present time total dis-
armament is probably impossible.
"The Geneva conference, which
adjourned Saturday, has accomplish-
ed a great deal. It has made the
contribution of ensuring the world
that limitation of some kind is feasi-
ble by gneral agreement. It has led
nations oreal problems of disarma-
Will Have Definite Propositions
"This conference has been the first
disarmament conference, and it has
shown that there is a great interest
in this question. Previous confer-
ences hive usually come after a war,
to make peace. Next time the dele-
gates will come back with concrete
propositions. They have obtained an
understgnding of the points of view
of other countries on many ques-
There have been some results from
the conference in the form of, reso-
lutions, Professor Wilsoh pointed out.
These .have favored the strengthen-
ing of defensive rather than offen-1
sive measures, prohibition of chemi-
cal and bacteriological warfare, and
continuation of naval disarmament.
Reviews Past Conferences
In reviewing some of the past limi-
tations conferences, Professor Wilson
indicated the difficulties facing such
meetings. One of the main ones lies
in selection of satisfactory phraseol-
ogy and definitions. In discussion f
abolition of chemical warfare, he
said, the question arose as to wheth-
er or not manufacture of chlorine
gas, for commercial purposes, was to
be included. A proposition to abolish
large guns depended on agreement
for a definition of the word "large."
"The liinitation' of arms is not so
easy," he said. "The citizen has
learned to depend on the state for
protection he formerly found in
clans or in his own strong right arm.
Even though we have measures in-
corporated in treaties, signed, sealed,
and delivered, we have found that
fact does not make them permanent
unless almost self-operative.
Scrapping Capital Ships
"The Washington Limitation Con-
ference was the first great step to-
w a r d s limitation of 'armaments.
Scrapping of capital ships under this
convention was real limitation. The
London Naval Conference then ex-
tended this principle to a certain ex-
tent to other classes of ships. The
Qeneva conference has had a com-
mission doing work in preparation
for the meeting since 1925. This
commission proposed limitation of
total tonnage ,and also limitation of
expenditures for arms, but neither
proposal proved acceptable to the
"Other proposals which were not
accepted," he concluded, "were Rus-
sia's for complete disarmament and

Error in Map
Nearly Caused
Interstate War
Karpinski Relates History
Of Toledo Dispute; Tells
Of Early Survey
A cartographical error nearly pre-.
cipitated a war between the states of
Michigan and Ohio, Prof. Louis Kar-
pinski of the mathematics depart-
ment declared in a talk yesterday.
The error, Professor Karpinski
said, consisted in a misplacement of
the southern tip of Lake Michigan
and resulted in the famous boundary
dispute over the possession of Toledo.
In settling this dispute Congress
gave to Michigan the upper penin-
sula. Among other errors in the
early maps Professor Karpinski noted
that on some a mountain range was
drpwn through, the center of Michi-
gan and connected with the appala-
chian chian and on dthers the pres-
ence of a group of fictitious islands
in Lake Sjiperior
"The fi'rst map ; showing all five
great lakes," Profesosr Karpinski
said, "is that of the Frenchman,
Samson, appearing in 1650. Lake On-
tario is not well laid out for the Iro-
quois Indians would not allow travel-
ers to pas along its shores. A French
priest whose name, unfortunately,
has been lost, made an exceptionally
accurate map of Lake Superior in
the early eighteenth century, un-
doubtedly having made astronomical
observations of latitude and longi-
tude on the lake."'
Prdfessor Karpinski pointed out
that the British Admiralty.made the
first governmental survey of the
Great Lakes in the early nineteenth
century and that the United States
topographical engineers did not
make a survey until twenty years
Tilson Resigns; Hunts
More Lucrative Work
WASHINGTON, July 26.-(AP)-
as Rpubican floor leader-Rep.
After 2'2 years in the House-six
John Quillin Tilson, of New Haven,
Conn., is going to resign to seek a
more lucrative job.
The affable lawyer-politician to-
day announced his decision not to
run for re-election and to resign
from the present Congress as soon
as it is practicable, in perhaps his
last "extension of remarks" in the
Congressional record.
Declaring "legitimate necessary
expenses" of a member of Congress
require his entire salary and make
it impracticable to lay aside any-
thing for his family, Tilson at 66
years of age says he willseek ac-
tivity in other fields where he hopes
the net financial return for his la-
bors "will at least be on the right
side of the ledger."

Completes Third Flight
Across Atlantic by Way
Of Arctic Route ,
MONTREAL, July 26. + (AP) -
Capt. Wolfgang von Gronau, veteran
German airman, landed his flying
boat in Montreal harbor tonight at
7:06 p. m. (E. S. T.), completing in
four and a half days his third 5,100
mile aerial trip between Europe and
America by the Arctic route.
Civic and aviation delegations met
the bronzed German and his three
companions at the seaplane base, as
he taxied up after a 10 hour and 16
minutes flight from Cartwright, La-
May Circle Globe
In the absence of announcements,
it washunderstood that Capt. von
Gronau planned to proceed from
Montreal around the world this year,
since gasoline has arrived at Prince
Rupert, B. C., for his use. This would
mean he planned to take Col. Charles
A. Lindbergh's route across northern
Canada to Alaska and proceed down
Kamchatka peninsula to Japan.
Pending a check,. Capt. von Gra-
nau's flying, time from List, Isle of
Sylt, Germany, was not revealed, but
it was believed to have compared
well with his 1930 time when he
reached New York in 47 hours.
Made Similar Flight
Last year he made a similar flight
in about the same time from Ger-
many to Chicago. His route in all
three flights has been approximately
the same.
From Germany Capt. von Gronau
flew, across in two hops. From Reyk-
javik, Iceland, he proceeded to Ivig-
tut, Greenland, in two jumps. Then
came 600 miles across Davis Straits
to Labrador and to Cartwright.
The captain was accompanied by
Gert von Roth,co-pilot, Franz Hack,
mechanic, and Fritz Albrecht, wire-
less operator.

Visit to Hollywood
Is Part of Training
LOS ANGELES, Calif. July 26.-
(Special) - Playing around Holly-
wood, Will Rogers, Clark Gable, and
a swajm of prezy movie satrs is just
one side of the life being led here
by Carl Dougovito, University f
Michigan wrestler, who is in train-
ing at the Olympic Village.
When the Michigan star and sev-
eral others from the camp of "finest
humans" on earth were taken to the
Fox Studios here, Will Rogers found
the athletes an interesting crowd.
For almost an hour he walked with
them through the studio. He marvel-
ed, that Dougovito was able to makb
the team. "Doug, you must have
bridged the referee, being a Michi-
gander," he exclaimed.
But back at the camp the life is
altogether different. The athletes
are kept under strict orders. Visitors
who throng about gates with the
hopes of obtaining pictures and au-
tographs are not peimitted to enter
the grounds. The daily training rou-
tine is rigid, and the diet is strict.
The village is inhabited not only by
athletes from this country, but the
pride of all nations in the world are
to be found jabbering in their native
tongues in all sections of the camp.
69 Men Lost
As Cadet Ship
Sinks in Gale
German Training Vessel
Goes Down Off Holstein;
Only 37 Rescued
KIEL, Germany, July 26.-(AP)-
The three-masted sailing v e s s e
Niobe, used as a German naval train-
ing ship, was struck by a gale today
and sank off the coast of Holstein.
Sixty-nine of the more than 1100 per-
sons aboard her were missing several
hours later, and it was feared they
were drowned. 4
Fifty officer cadets and 18' sub-
officer cadets were on the vessel
when she put out from Kiel on her
cruise. Thirty-seven persons' were
rescued by the steamer Therese Russ,
which was no far off when the ship
In the absence of definite informa-
tion, naval authorities could not ex-
plain the disaster, but they believed
the crew, unprepared for the sudden
wind, had been unable to reef the
sails in time.
A few minutes before the Niobe
went down the giant flying boat
DO-X, which visited the United
States a few months ago, passed
overhead en route to Kiel. The DO-
X swooped down and signaled a
greeting to the young cadets and
then proceeded- on her way, alight-
inig safely after a stormy flight.
Naval officials were told that , the
training ship was swept over- on her
side and went to the bottom in three
or four minutes. She was equipped
with a 240-horsepower motor, but
apparently was operating only under
sail at the time of the disaste.r.
Those aboard included, sixofficers
and 20 or 30 members of the erew
in addition to the officer cadets and
sub-officer cadets.
The Niobe used to be commanded
by Count Felix Luckner, famdus war-
time raider, who has spent much of
his time in the United States re-
cently and has been made an honor-
ary citizen of/San Francisco.
Shortly after the ship went down
a seaplane reached the scene, fol-
'lowed by the cruiser Koenigsberg
ahd four fast torpedo boats. Hope
was held that the speed with which
rescue ships gathered would result
in saving many mqre lives, but late
tonight that hope had waned.

Miss Atkinson is, at the present
time, returning from a trip to Eng-
land. Before coming to Michigan
three years ago, she received her
training in Oregon. Restaurant man-
agement is one of her specialties. r
