Chinese Draw
Soldiers From
Peiping Area;
Pewee Is Likely
Situation In North China
Changes Complexion As
Hatreds Cool
Sino-Japanese Pact
Signed By Leaders
PEIPING, July 23.-(P)-Chinese
and Japanese hatreds in north China,
at boiling point for 16 days, appeared
tonight to have cooled enough to
make war in the near future unlikely.
Withdrawal of the Chinese 37th
division from the Peiping area
changed the complexion of a situa-
tion which has been close to war
since soldiers of that unit and Jap-
anese first clashed 10 miles west of
Peiping the night of July 7.
Meets Urgent Condition
It met Japan's most urgent condi-
tion for restoration of peace and
marked beginning of Chinese fulfill-
ment of the latest of the four-year
series of local, military agreements
by which the Japanese army has
steadily strengthened its power in
north China.
The Japanese assert this agree- I
ment was made between their high
command and General Sung Cheh-
Yuan, head of the semi-autonomous
north China regime. They said he ac-
cepted its terms orally Sunday at
Tientsin, then confirmed them in
writing Monday at Peiping. The Jap-
anese version said it provided for:
1. Elimination of persons "imped-
ing" Sino-Japanese relations.
2. Complete suppression of Com-
3. Stricter control of anti-Japanese
organizations and anti-Japanese ed-
4. Evacuation of the 37th division
of General Sung's 29th army, which
the Japanese said was hostile to them.
Accept Sung Pact
Japanese reports said the central
Chinese government had accepted
General Sung's pact. At Nanking,
however, officials said the Nanking
government had not even seen the
pact and could not have approved it.
Experienced observers believed the
north China situation still held the
seeds of grave trouble. They point-
ed out Japan's military strength
there had been more than doubled,
while there was no assurance of suc-
cess in future negotiations seeking
settlement of deep-rooted Chinese-
Japanese clashes of interest.

After two weeks free from bom-
bardment, while the government of-
fensive bit into insurgent lines west
of Madrid, the capital was heavily
shelled twice in 24 hours.

The city counted 15 killed and 20
injured, many in the squares and
main avenues of the city. Workmen
scrubbed at red stains on the pave-
ment and cleared away rubble.
Alcala street and Cibeles Square
took the brunt of the first bombard-
ment, while the second sent several
hundred shells along Granvia and
the Chamberi section near the United
States Embassy.
Including casulaties in other bom-
bardments 15 miles f!om Madrid and
in Toledo Province, a total of about
70 dead and 150 wounded civilians
was added to the war's toll.

George's Only Duty Is Keeping
WomenFrom Union'sFrontDoor

Caine In From South Lyonf
Farm 17 Years Ago To t
Guard Entrance
That "George".has a surname, and g
that it is Johnson, is lost in a happy d
wave of cordiality that exists between t
him and thosuands of Michigan men.
George has been the doorman at t
the Union, summer and winter, since
the building was opened 17 years ago. 0
He is 76 years old and has just as L
much fun, he says, as he did 50 years h
ago. h(
.His one and only duty is to keep i
women from entering the front door. 1
"It's a men's club," he says. "If
women were allowed to enter the t
front doors it would be just a hotel." l1
His method of keeping women from i
the front entrance is to politely lift
his cap and ask them to take the side
entrance. If they refuse to go around
there's nothing to do but let them
enter. Good nature is his stock-in-
trade, and a lot of it is required for
the job.
George seldom loses his temper, but
once he was ruffled. A man and wife,
guests in the Union, were descending
toward the front doors on their way
to State St. The doorman doffed his P
cap to the pair and asked the man to
take the lady out the side entrance.
He simply took George by the shoul-
ders, shoved him aside, and said,
"We're going through here."
Slightly irked, George picked upe
the fellow iquietly and laid him neat-
ly upon E table near the entrance. c

The eighth Summer Session excur-
sion today will go to Milford for a
visit of the General Motors provingi
grounds. Reservations were to haveC
been niade yesterday.
The party to visit the 1,268-acre
laboratory for testing automobiles
speed and endurance will' leave at
8 a.m. from Angell Hall, to return atw
2 p.m.t
More than 165 tests are applied onI
all kinds of road surfaces, including
mud, brick, gravel ,tar-treated sur-p
faces, and concrete. Engineer-guides
will conduct the party through theg
shops and garages equipped for
measuring vibration, brake efficiencyc
and steering effort.o
Special points of interest are thep
four-mile concrete loop where alle
makes of motor cars, including Euro-b
pean, are tested for speed and endur-i
ance, the "bath-tub," a depressedp
piece of co crete built to test effectss
of water on moving automobiles, and
the two straightaway concrete roads.
The ninth in the series will be heldn

Minor Tremors
Continuing To
Shake Alaska
FAIRBANKS, Alaska, July 23.-(P)f
-Minor tremors continued to shake
1interior Alaska today after a sharp
Searth shock yesterday broke liquor
bottles and other merchandise and
caused six-inch to one-foot cracks in
the earth.
Dr. Erwin H. Bramhall, University
of Alaska scientist, said today's tre-

mors indicated the earth fault was
readjusting itself. He said the uni-
versity seismograph has registered1
more than 80 quakes since the first
sharp one early yesterday. ,
A plane party which flew above
the Black Rapids glacier, about 1259
imiles southeast of here, said the
quakes had no apparent effect on thel
forward movement cf that ice-river,
but that falling rock had buried 2,000
feet of highway.

b Murphy signed today a bill approp-
a riating $300,000 for additions to the

eet he had considered the error of
is ways, and followed his wife toward
he side doors.
Students are not as wild today as
hey once were, especially during pro- R
ibition, he says. Students and
uests at the Union invited him
ownstairs for a "swig" three or four
imes a week in those days, but he
asn't had that many invitations in

He came to the Union after tiring

ng from women visitors daily between o

Discussion Of f
Greek. 'Mutes
Is Concluded re
Prof. Sturtevant D r a w s a
Pronunciation Evidence t
From Ancient Tongues s
Concluding his presentation of the in
vidence for the pronunciation of the tr
lassical Greek "rough mutes," Prof.c
E. H. Sturtevant of Yale University t
ast night delivered the second of a p
eries of two lectures sponsored by t
he Linguistic Institute. f
That the external evidence, which
s provided by a study of loan-words, s
s pretty shaky was readily admitted l
t the outset by Dr. Sturtevant, who t
n his first lecture had offered the s
naterial which supplies, as he said, sl
;he conclusive proof. The theory then
ubstantiated and last night sup- t
orted with supplementary evidence I
s that the rough mutes, chi, theta,
nd phi, were pronounced as c, t, or p,k
with a following h.
Use "C" for Chi
Dr. Sturtevant's first contention
nvolved the way the Romans wrote
Greek words. They used c, pro-
nounced as k, for the Greek chi, and
p for the Greek phi. Although they
might have used c for chi anyway,
;ince there was no Latin spirant cor-
responding to that k sound, yet they e
would not have used p for phi, for t
they had the symbol for f available.
Therefore the Greek phi must have w
represented an aspirate p, that is, a t
p followed by the h sound. f
Besides one. or two additional ar- a
guments based upon Latin and Greek E
relationships Dr. Sturtevant usedt
considerable evidence adduced from s
other languages of the Hellenistic and
post-Hellenistic periods. He foundu
evidence in Persion loan-words, for b
instance, and also in Indic borrow-a
ings, where the Greek chi, theta, andp
phi are always represented by theu
symbols for voiceless aspirates. t
Evidence May Arise
Although possible ftLire evidence1
may arise in a study of Greek words t
in Egyptian suggested Dr. Sturtevantt
that study is yet to be made. But 1
a strong argument is available, he
added, in Coptic. In that language,I
where the words are run togetherv
in writing, the Greek chi, for example,t
is used to represent the combination
of a final k plus the initial h of ther
next word.
The final evidence was drawn from
Armenian, which in the 6th century
used aspirate signs to represent the
Greek rough mutes.

Schoolboy Rowee
Banished After
Futile Attempts
DETROIT, July 23.-(P)-Lynwood
Schoolboy) Rowe, the Detroit Tig-
rs' ailing pitcher, will hurl no more
his season.
Manager Mickey Cochrane, who
watched Rowe's futile efforts against
he Philadelphia Athletics Thursdaya
rom the press box, said today after
a conference with acting Manager
Del Baker and Coach Cy Perkins that
the Schoolboy probably will leave
soon for his home in El Dorado, Ark.
The three Tiger leaders said they
were convinced that a sore arm is
bothering Rowe, who yielded five hits
and five runs in the one inning he
pitched against the A's. He has been
uneffective in his other appearances
this year and once visited a specialist.
The final decision on sending
Rowe to his home until next spring's
training season will be made by Wal-
ter O. Briggs, president and owner of
the American League Club.
Cochrane indicated also that
Briggs will be called up to determine
whether the Schoolboy will be asked
to undergo an operation.
Tigers, A's Break
Even In Twin Bill
DETROIT, July 23.-(P)-Detroit
and Philadelphia broke even in their

twin bill today, the Athletics over-
whelming the Tigers, 16 to 4, in the
first game and losing the second, 9 to
8 in the 11th inning.
The A's collected 16 hits off of
four Bengal hurlers-Auker, Coff-
man, Rowe and Russell-in the op-
ener, while Detroit got to Kelley for
only six. Philadelphia went into the
lead in the second inning and kept in
front easily.
In the seventh Wally Moses hit
a home run with the pitcher scoring
ahead of him. Charley Gehringer
got a round trip in the night-cap.

day that its defeated court bill was
partial success in that it induced

onstitution more liberally.
A spokesman for the President him-
lf told newspapermen that since the

e influence of the ensuing contro-

Renew Administration Plea
In addition, while a restless Con-
ress talked of adjournment in mid-
ugust, or earlier, he renewed the ad-
inistration's plea for enactment of
age' and hour legislation, a farm
rogram and a housing bill before the
d of the session.
If Congress should adjourn with-
ut disposing of these measures, he
lade it clear that the President is re-
rving a decision on calling a na-
onal legislature into special session
a October to attend to them.
Senator Barkley, the majority
ader, outlined a program for the
emainder of the session and predict-
d that Congress will not adjourn
ntil the measures are enacted.
Besides the new court bill now be-
g drafted by the Senate Judiciary
ommittee, the list included the wage
our and housing measures and a bill
o plug holes in the tax laws. Bark-
ey did not include the farm bill, or

Labor Relations Act, he added, re-

Lastly, he cited the decision up
