Promises To Avoid Japs'
Armies In China War
As Result Of Parleys
Japanese jubilant
Over British Act
LONDON July 24.-(IP)-Britain
promised today to stay out of the way
of the Japan army in China and dis-
avowed any plans to "buy peace" by
charting a new appeasement nourse
through a loan to Germany."
Prime Minister Chamberlain made
the two statements in the House of
Commons amid openly-voiced fears
of opposition members that he was
swinging again to the appeasement
policy he pursued until the German
army marched into Prague March 15.
As an outgrowth of the bitter anti-
British campaign in Japan ad Ja-
panese-occupied sections of China,
the Prime Minister announced terms
of a preliminary agreement under
which britain recognized that "Ja-
panese forces in China have special
requirements for the purpose of safe-
gutrding their own security and
maintaining public order in the re-
gions under their control.
"They have to suppress or remove
any acts or causes as will obstruct
them or benefit their enemy."
Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax in
the House of Lords declared that as a
result of the agreement it was expect-
ed Japanese anti-British agitation
would cease.
The agreement, announced simul-
taneously by Britain and Japan, was
freached in Tokyo talks by between
British Ambassador Sir Robert Les-
lie Craigie and Foreign Minister
Hachiro Arita as a preliminary to a
broader British-Japanese conference
on -their dispute in Tentsin which
has been intensified by the Japanese
blockade since June 14 of the B ritish
and French concessions.
Hailing the agreement as a "sweep-
ing diplomatic victory," Japanese in-
sisted it granted them virtual bellig-
erent rights in their undeclared war
against China.
Chamberlain denied, however, that
the agreement involved any change
of British policy toward the Chinese-
Japanese war or that his government
"has now definitely taken the side
of Japan.''
Land Tenures
To Be Subjeet
Of onference
Latin - American Institute
Sponsors Symposiums;
Two Sessions Are Listed
What to do about land tenures and
agricultural systems in Latin Ameri-
ca will be probed and sifted by a
group of experts 'today in the second
and final session of a conference
sponsored by the Institute of Latin
American Studies.
Under the guidance of Prof. Carl
0 Sauer of the University of Cali-
fornia, formerly associated with the
University geography department,
the conference has for its purpose
not so. much the drawing of specific
conclusions but rather the broader
topic of considering the possibility of
an associative and interdisciplinary
approach to the problems involved.
Today's session will begin at 10 a.m.
in the Rackham auditorium with land
tenure in the areas of the highland
Indian culture ranging from Mexico
to Peru as the subject of discussion.
A luncheon will be held at noon in
the Union.
The evening session to be held at

8 p.m. in the Rackham amphitheatre
will be devoted to consideration of
the forms of land tenure on the hu-
mid Pampa of the Argentine. Com-
parisons will be drawn between the
tenures of that region and those of
the grasslands of North America.
Music Faculty Hold
Concert Here Today

Life and experiences among the
Arabs were described to an apprecia-
tive audience of Ipre than 1,000 per-
sons in the Rackham Auditorium last
night by Dr. PaulmHarrison, famed
medical missionary to Arabia.
Declaring that "what we under-
stand we come to sympathize with and
have an admiration for," Dr. Harrison
explained the peculiarities of climate
and soil that cause the primitive liv-
ing habits of the Arab peoples. The
main factors are terrific heat during
most of the year and a total average
rainfall of only one inch annually.
Thus the Arab lives in a country
marked for its great aridity and for
desert wastes except for the moun-
tains. The one inch of rain falls onto
a gravelly soil for the most part and
is carried to springs which create
oases in which date groves flourish.
The people who live in this land
are mainly nomad bedouins, Dr. Har-

rison said. They are shepherds with
a few camels and goats, and both
man and animal is almost the sole
and fundamental support of the oth-
er. The nomad subsists on camel's
milk and butter and on dates which
he obtains from the oasis dwellers
in exchange for his milk products.
This exchange of products is the
fundamental economic transaction in
Arabia, Dr. Harrison declared, and
the meagerness of this diet explains
the thin, boney build and features of
the Arab people.
Dr. Harrison, then took his listen-
ers on two trips through Arabia, one
across the lowland desert region, one
across the mountain region. On the
desert journey, he said, travelling is
done between 4 p.m. and 8 a.m. Short-
ly after sun-down, the riders dis-
mount from their camels at the near-
est place where a twig or other frag-
ment of fuel can be found. Here the
cook takes down his camel-skin sad-
dle and proceeds to use the inner side
as a holder in which to mix a little
water and some flour. A hard bis-
cuit is made which is pushed into the
ashes to bake.
One of the Arab delicacies, Dr.
Harrison described, is baked locust.
This is enjoyed in the seasons when
great locust hordes swarm over the
earth in a mass from six to eight
inches deep. The insects are gathered
in handfuls and then put in the oven.
When eaten, the wings and hind legs
are pulled off before they are put
into the mouth, Dr. Harrison ex-
Although protesting against the
extreme heat of the day-time on the
desert, Dr. Harrison said that the
most striking and beautiful view in
the world was to be had in the early

Congress Plans
By Next Week
Administration Lending
Bill Only Remaining Bar;
Makes Slow Progress
Senate Schedules
Evening Sessions
WASHINGTON, July 24.-(/)-
Officially and finally, Congress set-
tled into its annual adjournment
drive today, with the hope of end-
ing the session about the middle of
next week.
Night sessions for the Senate were
scheduled beginning Wednesday, and
Senator Barkley (Dem., Ky.), the ma-
jority leader, appealed to his col-
leagues to stick by their seats so time
might not be unnecessarily lost in
quorum calls.
Lending Bill Jammed
This situation developed after a
day which found the Administration's
$2,490,000,000 lending bill made little
progress in either House or Senate.
This measure is the one piece of leg-
islation upon which adjournment
most depends.
Late in the day, Barkley arose in
the Senate to say that the leadership
was anxious to adjourn on "the earl-
iest date consistent with the orderly
disposition of necessary legislation."
"We hope," he said, "that this may
be the middle of next week."
Plan Night Sessions
Not only were night sessions sched-
uled, Barkley continued, but it was
planned that the Senate meet at 11
a.m., each day, an hour earlier than
"It is important," he said, "that we
come early and stay late."
In the Senate, the lending bill was
reported by the Banking Committee,
with an accompanying statement
that it would put 500,000 men to work,
would raise the level of business ac-
tivity, and reduce Federal relief. out-
The measure, the committee as-
serted, was intended "to bring to-
gether idle men, idle equipment and
unused savings for the purpose of in-
creasing employment and the nation-
al income.

'Attitudes' For Job Interviews
To Be Sifted By Purdom Tonight

How to avoid alienating prospective
employers by wrong- attitudes and
how to win them over through the
correct approach will be demonstrat-
ed' today by Dr. T. Luther Purdom,
Director of the University Bureau of
Appointments and Occupational In-
Speaking at 7:15 p.m. in the Rack-
ham Auditorium, Dr. Purdom will
put his "troupe" of six trained stu-
dents through their paces to demon-
strate graphically just where people
slip-up in fumbling the interviews for
the jobs they "might have had."
Brilliance and training alone are
not guarantees of good jobs, Dr. Pur-
dom has pointed out. The impression
an employer gains at the moment of
the interview, or in the introductory
letter, can offset the most outstand-
ing record if the impression is not
a favorable one. He cited case after
case from the Bureau's files to illus-
trate how often precisely that has
Frequently, he said, the people who
are most capable are the worst of-
fenders. They adopt an over-confi-
dent or "don't care" attitude which

usually proves fatal to their hopes
in the end.
As in last week's demonstration,
when he emphasized the vital role
which appearance plays in landing
a job, Dr. Purdom will comment on
the attitudes of the demonstrators
and summarize the proceedings, illus-
trating his points with material from
a wealth of experience in the field
of guidance and personnel.
The program is the second in a
series of three devoted to the broad
topic of securing available employ-
ment. The third and last topic will
be discussed next Tuesday when Dr.
Purdom approaches the job prpb em
from a totally different angle entitled
"Whom Do You Know?"

Father Risks His Life
Trying To Rescue Son
A drama of stark tragedy mixed
with heroism unfolded on Cavanaugh
Lake near Chelsea last night when
a father who couldn't swim risked
his life in a futile attempt to save
his drowning son.
It occurred in the calm of the late
afternoon when Casmer P. Head of
5536 Yorkshire Drive, Detroit, took
his five year old boy,'Richard, for a
motor boat ride.
Richard had found an oar in the
bottom of the boat and was playing
with it as boys will when suddenly he
thrust it into the water and the im-
pact hurled him out of the boat into
the lake.
His father, although he had never
swum a stroke, plunged in after him
but couldn't reach the boy and was
forced to cling to the boat while his
son drowned before his eyes.
He was finally picked up by an-
other boat. Mr. Head is a member of
the law firm of Walter and Head,

"The Eastern Orthodox Church is
democratically organized. Originally
there were four independent eastern
patriarchates, equal in power and dig-
rAity but eventually the Patriarch of
Constantinople acquired greater im-
portance in administrative matters
and so was placed first on the list,
but never was he allowed the pre-
rogative of telling the . other patri-
archs what to do," Professor Michael-
ides said.
Independent Church
As states became independent, a
general policy was adopted of recog-
nizing an independent church with-
in the free state. So came into being
the independent and self-governing
churches in Russia, Greece, Rouman-
ia, and the other eastern countries,
each with their own head supreme
in her own territory. But there is no
central authority in the Eastern Or-
thodox Church as there is in the
Roman Catholic Church.

Virus Investigation To Be Topic
Of Belgian Bacteriologist Today
Classifications and investigation of actions of bacteria in the presence of

bacteria and especially of viruses will
be discussed in a series of four lec-
tures beginning at 4:15 p.m. today
in Room 1528, East Medical Build-'
ing, by Prof. Andre Gratia of the
Laboratorie de Bacteriologie of the
University of Liege, Belgium.
Dr. Gratia has been especially in-
terested in investigating methods of
classification employed in bacteriol-
ogy and in devisig new methods of
investigation, chiefly through the use
of the new ultracentrifuge developed
by Henriot-Huguenard, which is ap-
plicable to the study of viruses.
Classification of bacteria, accord-
ing to Dr. Malcolm H. Soule of the
department of bacteriology, has pre-
viously been arranged according to

anti-sera and upon their ability to
produce diseases on animal tissue.
Due to variousinconsistencies in
behavior, and since the viruses can
be observed only through the new
electronic microscope, they do not
readily lend themselves to these sys-
tems of classification. Dr. Gratia's
problem, therefore, has been to de-
vise a new order of investigation es-
pecially adapted to the study of vi-
Ordinary bacteria can readily be
separated by the use of fine filters.
Viruses, however, pass readily through
even the finest filters available, thus
