PEIPING, Aug. 10.-(Tuesday)-
(MP-The Soldiers of Japan erased
methodically from this old capital of
the Emperors of China today all
traces of the nationalism of Sun Yat-
Sen and Chiang Kai- Shek.
From the bookshops the military
patrols combed out "objectionable
In the public schools they forbade
the teaching of the principles of na-
tional salvation of Sun Yat-Sen, the
Chinese "liberator." These, they said,
were impractical and "tended to poi-
son youthful minds"
Without hesitation, the troops
searched Tsing Hua University, built
in 1911 as the result of United States
remittance of more than 10 million
dollars of the Boxer Indemnity. They
looked for traces of activity which
they might not approve.
General War Breaks Out
The general war which had been
threatening for a month or more ap-
parently broke out today, but there
were still no formal declaration of
hostilities. Fighting, reports said,
has spread over a large area and had
passed far beyond the bonds of a local
The casualties on the both sides as
a result of the fighting were said to
be more than 20,000, making it the
most serious battle so far.
At Shangai the Japanese demanded
that the Chinese Peace Preservation
Corps be withdrawn 12 miles from
the city as they had agreed after the
Shanghai wa of 1932. The Chinese,
apparently following the threat of;
Chaing Kai Shek, refused.
Warning Is Issued
Forces of the Central Government
and the Japanese regular armies were
engaged northwest and southwest of
Peiping and south of Tientsin. Ja-
panese naval patrols faced Chinese
soldiers in Shanghai, where a Japan-i
ese naval officer, a sailor and a Chin-
ese soldier were killed.-
The Japanese high naval com-
mand met in the great fortified naval
barracks which the Nipponese com-
pleted two years ago on the river
front and debated their course of ac-
Resume Normal
Activities After
Sit-bown Ends
Normal production was resumed at
the American Broach & Machine
plant yesterday while negotiations to
effect a final settlement on workers'
demands were held during the after-
noon at the City Hall.
Working under a truce agreement
arranged through the intervention of
Governor Murphy, representatives of
the city, workers, UAW and company
conducted negotiations which a
prominent city official described as
"amiable." Further conferences will
be held, probably starting on Wed-

nesday, to discuss working condi-
tions, wages and hours.
The 36-hour sit-down and picket-
ing which followved the plant's evac- 1
uation came to an end Friday after
a conference with Murphy at Lan-
sing. The only agreement made then I
was for conferences to begin within1
five days.

Trial Proceedings
May Be Suspended
BERLIN, Aug. 9.-(P)-Indications
tonight were that some Nazi quar-
ters desired to drop trial proceedings
against The Rev. Martin Niemoeller,
Protestant leader in the fight against
I government regulation of chunh af-
An end to the affair was under-
stood to be desired because of last
night's demonstration parade by
members of Niemoeller's congrega-
tion, irked by a ban on a public prayer
meeting planned on his behalf.
Another possible factor was the re-
cent acquittal of the Rev. Otto Di-
belius ,another prominent protestant
who was tried for an old open letter
upholding that Christ was a Jew.
Niemoeller's trial was postponed
today, having been scheduled orig-
inally for Tuesday. No new date was
made known.
Organizers Tell
Board Of 'Fear'
In Labor Ranks
Republic Steel Company
Refuses To Sign With
Representative Leaders
CANTON, O., Aug. 9.-(P)--Two
CIO organizers told the National
Labor Relations Board today of
"fear" among Republic Steel Corp.
employes, and the board was advised
the company had refused to sign an
agreement with the leaders of an em-
ploye representative plan.
The board is investigating CIO
charges that Republic violated the
Wagner Act. Republic has contended
it did not have to sign an agree-
ment under the act. CIO called a
strike last May to enforce its de-
mand for a contract, but all Republic
plants now are operating.
Howard Porter, an or'ganizer for
the CIO Steel Workers Organizing
Committee, said "There seems to be
a lot of terror" among Republic em-
ployes when he came to Canton a
year ago. Guy L. Sweany, an organ-
izer who formerly worked for Re-
public, said workers were "afraid"
the company would find out they had
signed membership application
blanks. Both men told of being
trailed by men they said were com-
pany policemen.
More than a hundred steel work-
ers, many wearing CIO buttons,
crowded a stuffy courthouse room
here to listen to resumption of the
hearing, which began last month in
Edward Kirkland, a steel worker
since 1907 in the tin plate plant here
which is not a Republic subsidiary,
described the employe representative
plan from its formation in 1933.
Kirkland said that prior to the
time Republic acquired the mill, the
employe representatives had a writ-i
ten agreement covering wages andI
conditions of work, signed by the
management each year. This was,
discontinued when Republip became,

Of Speech Are
Listed In Talk
Speech Personalities, Both
Social And Individual,
Confused, Sapir Says
Person's 'Speech
Side' Is His Topic
Social and individual speech per-
sonalities are often confused and mis-
understood, Prof. Edward Sapir of
Yale University, visiting instructor in
the Linguistic Instiute, told the Sum-
mer Session lecture audience yester-
day in his talk on "The Speech Side
of Personality."
Professor Sapir listed seven char-
acteristics of speech, six of which he
called both social and individual.
Voice, he said, is altogether biological,
while voice dynamics, pronunciation,
morphiology, style, vocabulary and
dynamics of pronunciation are all
capable of either individual or gen-
eral social peculiarities. Voice dy-
namics he distinguished from mere
voice by describing it as "the way a
person handles foreign materials in
Affectation Often Mistaken
In discussing the confusion of in-
dividual with community speech and
idiom, Professor Sapir remarked,

In Lecture Series
"Japanese Wood-block Prints and
Printing" will be the subject of J.
Arthur MacLean, curator of Oriental
art in the Toledo Museum, in the
Summer Session lecture at 5 p.m. to-
day in Natural Science Auditorium.
Mr. MacLean has played a leading
part in gaining widespread critical
recognition for modern Japanese
prints as compared with 18th cen-
tury work. In his talk he will discuss
both the old and the new artists
and their work. The lecture will be
illustrated. with lantern slides.
In connection with his lecture Mr.
MacLean has prepared an exhibit of
Japanese prints in Alumni Memorial
Hall which will remain there for the1
rest of the semester.

Attorney For Union Writes
Letter To Dearborn And

A 'LegalNonentity'

public today letters to the sheriff, the
county prosecutor and the corpora

respondents and retaliated by order-
ing a prominent British news writer
to leave Germany within two weeks.
Norman Ebbutt, Berlin correspon-
dent of The Times of London for
about 15 years, was ordered to leave.
Since the Nazi regime came to powerI
in Germany, his articles have been
widely quoted.
Through the British foreign office
the Times was informed that the
German government wanted a Times
correspondent in Berlin "Who will,
pay less attention to work consideredl
here as trivialities and more atten-
tion to what is important."
An authoritative source indicated
the German action would not alter,
the refusal of the British home office,
announced last week, to renew labor
permits of three German correspon-
dents, two of whom already have left
The British government offered no
explanation. The Conservative Eve-
ning.Standard in an editorial, asking
official light on the affair, said:
"If the men have been guilty of
espionage, it is better that the public
should be told so than that the pres-
ent atmosphere of uneasy specula-
tion should exist."
In the absence of explanation, the
Evening' Standard said, "Wide pub-f
licity is being given to theories of an
alarming character." It insisted,
however, it did not question the jus-
tice of the expulsions.
Germany's protest was delivered by
Dr. E. Woermann, charge d'affaires
in the vacation absence of Ambas-
sador Joachim Von Ribbentrop, but
it followed a week-end conference
between members of the German
Embassy Staff and the Ambassador at
Renfrew, Scotland.

Turning to behavior characteristics
in speech, Professor Sapir pointed out
that students of psychology inform
us that there are certain desires, im-
pulses and motivations which are ex-
plicit in various overt signs. They
are also often found expressed in
more disguised shape in speech, as
when a person is angry, amused, or
melancholy. "It is unavoidable," he
concluded, "that the conflict situa-
tions of ordinary life should be re-
flected in habits of speech."
