Institute Of Far Eastern Studies
Only One Of It's Kind In Country

This year there appears on the
summer school curriculum for the
first time the Institute of Far Eastern
Studies-virtually the only one of its
kind in the country-in "response to,
the rapidly growing scholarly and
public interest in the Far East," as
especially evidenced at Michigan.

Bible Address
Will Be Given
By Humplhreys
He Approaches The Bible
As Layman And Teacher,
Not As Theologian
Dean Wilber R. Humphreys of the
English department will speak on "A
Professor Looks at the Bible," at 7:30
p.m. today at the First Congregation-
al Church.
"The content and structure of the
English Bible has an important place
in the cultural curriculum of every
university in the country," said Dr.
Edward Blakeman, counselor of re-
ligious education. Since 1908 Dean
Humphreys has been giving such a
course to University students. More
than seven thousand have been in
this course. It runs for two semes-
ters each year and covers in survey
fashion the entire 66 books which
make up the Bible.
Dean Humphreys, because of his
own study in this subject and his
long and varied contact with stu-
dents at the University, is considered
by Dr. Blakeman to be the outstand-
ing person able to speak on the appre-
ciation side of Bible literature.
He approaches the Bible as a lay-
man and not as a clergyman, as a
teacher of English and not a theolo-
gian. In many particulars this ap-
proach is the best means of popular-
izing these ancient documents.
This series at the First Congrega-
tional Church was opened last week
by .a powerful address delivered by
Rabbi Bernard Heller upon the Jew-
ish appreciation of Jesus. The series
is interspersed by a campus vesper
at the Library Terrace on Sunday,
July 25, at which time music will be
under the direction of Prof. David
E. Mattern and the vesper address
will be delivered by the Rev. R. Ed-
ward Sayles.

Toward State
Truck Peace
Governor's Plan Includes
5-Man Board To Study
Wages, Rates, Legalities
Operators, Union,
E Accept Proposal
MUSKEGON, Mich., July 17.-(/')
-Gov. Frank Murphy said at the
conclusion of a joint conference with
representatives of Michigan intra-
state truck operators and their strik-
ing employes that they had agreed
upon a plan which he believed would
lead to "permanent settlement" of
their difficulties.
The Governor's proposal called for
a five-man commission to make a
30-day study of the legal phases,
rates and wages in the trucking in-
dustry of the state and then submit
its report to Murphy as a basis for
adjustments to prevent further labor
3r other troubles.
Gov. Murphy said he would an-
nounce the commission's personnel
VIonday. On it will be two represen-
tatives of the operators, two for the
union and a third person acceptable
to both sides and to him. The neu-
tral member, the Governor said,
probably will be one of the Michigan
public utility commissioners.
The plan was accepted without
qualification by all of the operators
present and all but two of the union
leaders, Murphy said. These two said
they would have to refer it to their
drivers, but assured the Governor, he
said, it would be accepted. They are
to report to Murphy before he desig-
nates the commission's membership.
The commission is to hold its first
meeting in Lansing, the state capital,
"There will be more than a truce
during the 30-day study period," the
Governor said, adding that he ex-
pected normal shipping to be restored
The number of drivers affected by
the strike ranged from the operators'
estimate of 3,000 to the union's figure
of 8,000. The strike began Wednes-
day midnight to enforce the union's
demands for wage increases, which
operators' spokesmen said they could
not grant unless rates were increased.

'Yellow Jack'
Is Next Play
At Mendelssohn.
Repertory Players To Give
Drama Based On Book
Of Paul de Kruif
"Yellow Jack," a play by Sidney
Howard based on a chapter of Paul
de Kruif's "Microbe Hunters" and
dramatizing the fight against yellow
fever, will be presented by the Rep-
ertory Players for four days begin-
ning Wednesday in the Lydia Mendel-
ssohn Theatre.
The drama is divided into short
"blackouts" rather than orthodox
scenes and acts, and runs chronolog-
ically in reverse, opening in England
in the 1920's, then shifting to pre-
war Africa and finally to Cuba in
1900, where the yellow fever epi-
demic was successfully combatted by
a group of American doctors.
There are no actual "leading roles"
in the play according to Frederic
Crandall, director, but a large num-
ber of almost equally important parts.
The cast includes William P. Hal-
stead as Dr. Walter Reed; Charles

Warlike Preparations Are
Rushed As Tientsin Is
Made Military Base
Officers Incensed
With Chen-Yuan
TOKYO, July 18.-(Sunday)
--'P)-Japanese newspapers to-
day demanded "Immediate de-
cisive action" by peace or war in
the north China crisis.
The newspaper Nichi Nichi,
and other Japanese newspapers
which had maintained a re-
strained, moderate attitude to-
ward the trouble in China, sud-
denly changed their tone and
asked expulsion of the Chinese
29th route army and the inaug-
uration in north China of a re-
gime "willing and capable of
bringing peace."
The newspaper also demanded
the overthrow of the Hopeh-
Chahar governing council in the
trouble zone.
The newspaper Kdkumi de-
clared Japan had exhausted au
diplomatic dealings with the cen-
tral Chinese government at Nan-
king and recommended the Jap-
anese government take "Swift
and determined action" against
the "Frankenstein monster of
anti-Japanese agitation which is
now going to swallow its creator,
the Nanking government"
The Yomiuri newspaper said:
"Japan has decided its final at-
titude. It is now up to China
to choose settlement by gun-fire
or by peace."
TIENTSIN, July 17.--(P)-The
Japanese army tonight threatened
drastic use of its rapidly increasing
power in North China unless the
Chinese yielded soon to its demands.
Grimly the Japanese rushed war-
like preparations which were turning
Tientsin into an important military
base from which large scale opera-
tions could be launched at any time
if the 10-day-old north China crisis
does not develop to their liking.
16,000 Arrive
They had an estimated 16,000 meri
in the Peiping-Tientsin trouble zone
and other thousands were arriving
or on the way from Manchuria, Korea
and Jaipan.
Japanese officers, although denying
mn ultimatum had been presented,
expressed growing irritation at the
Chinese tactics of delay.
They were especially incensed with
General Sung Cheh-Yuan, chairman
of the Hopeh-Chahar council and
commander of the 29th army, who
has remained outside week-long peace
negotiations of subordinates at Tient-
"The sooner Sung decides (to ac-
cept Japan's demands) the better it
will be for him," said a Japanese
army spokesman.
(In Tokyo the government an-
nounced Japan had decided "to ac-
celerate negotiations" in the north
China crisis. Japan's demands hav
not been announced. Japanese say
they provide for a local settlement of
the conflict which began July 7 with
a clash of Chinese and Japanese
troops west of Peiping. Chinese say
they are tantamount to severance of
the north from the rest of China).
Two Airports Staked Out
Japan's north China army, with
headquarters here, staked out two
airports, increased the Japanese
army communication system and took
over the last of Tientsin's three rail-
way stations.
One airport was located three miles
east and north of here and the other
inear Fengtai, five miles from Peiping.
