f,000,000 in American Bonds Mar.
keted in Asiatic Island
Japanese merchants and exporters
ve bought between $30,000,000 and
),000,000 American securities in the
t six months, according to estimates
ade yesterday in banking quarters,
tere an important part of the pur-
ases were put through. The 'securi-
s wer~e bonds for the most part,
gely underlying railroad issues, al-
,ugh a substantial part consisted of
)rtgage bonds of industrial com--
nies returning a high yield on the
rchase price. It is assumed that
my hundreds of thorrands of dol-
's worth of Americ2 a bonds sold
re by Europe have gone directly into
panese hands.
Investments on Large Scale.
These Japanese investments on so
ge a scale are the outgrowth of the
ifts of commerce which resulted
>m the war. Japan has been ship-
ag to the United States a great
ount of goods which formerly were
knufactured by Germany, and at the
me time exports to us of silks and
ier far eastern products from Ja-
a have been stimulated because the
.ropean demand for them has been
luced. In consequence Japan's trade
lance' I. this country has been
wing steadily, producing credits
ich either had to be transferred to
owners or put to use here.
For the most part the securities
ght with the proceeds of Japanese
ods sold in the United States have
en deposited with local banks. As
e interest on the bonds falls due it
IL be credited to the owner's account,
: dividend checks will receive
ilar attention. On most of the
icks and bonds, it is said, an income
urn of at least 41-2 per cent is
stained, while is 11-2 per cent, or
re higher than the owners could
if they had their funds sent back
me and the money lent at interest
es current in the Japanese market.
Abundance of Money in Japan.
['he superabundance of money in
pan is the primary reason for in-
stments in American stocks and
ads. The nation has prospered
atly from war orders, and this
siness has flooded the country with
ney. A number of prominent banks
ve of late begun to refuse further
posits, and the bankers have dis-
iraged gold imports as far as pos-
le. Gold is sent from this side from
e to time, however, $2,000,000 hav-
been transferred yesterday by the
-treasury to the San Francisco mint
shipment to Japan. Half of the
al was arranged for by the local
"cy of the Yokohama Specie bank,
d-the remainder by a local banking
apan has invested a part of her
Iance of trade in Great ritain in
Itish treasury notes. Three months
a it was learned that approximately
,000,000 of Japanese government
ids held in New York had been sent
London to be used in the purchase
these English treasury obligations.
rroughs Bandit Again Pleads Guilty
and Faces Long Term

)etroit, Nov. 23.-James Walton, the
rroughs bandit, was sentenced
Judge Connolly in recorders court

nions robbed the Burroughs Adding

I in spectacular fashion last Au-

Clearing Houses Show Gain of 44.3%
Over Figures of Last Year; Car
Shortage Delays Shipments
The United States seems without a
doubt to be caught in a wave of pros-
perity that is far from temporary in
character. Reports that have been re-
ceived during the last week show that
the state of trade is exceedingly ac-
tive. Stimulating features are in the
ascendant, new high level prices for
wheat, corn, oats, cotton, iron, steel,
and other metals, and the widespread
advances in wages being the most
significant. In a statement by Brad-
street's we find that "the chief com-
plaint is still, as for some time past,
the difficulty of obtaining merchandise
in sufficient quantity to satisfy buy-
ers." A policy of conservation is be-
ing preached with greater vigor than
before to avoid inflation and wild-cat
speculation but there is no doubt that
demand in all but a few cases is ac-
tive beyond precedent.
However, there are influences at
work that may in effect bring a slight-
ly more moderate state of trade. Not-
able among these is the decision of the
railroad managers to test the constitu-
tionality of the eight hour law. This
action has again caused the chiefs of
the railroad brotherhoods to hint at a
strike. The car shortage evil is still
in prominence and without question is
the source of much inconvenience and
delay to producers.
Nevertheless the general trend of
trade is forward. Dry goods, wearing
apparel, and general merchandise are
selling in immense quantities and the
grains are doing very well. A good
covering of snow in many cases is
proving very satisfactory to the crops
of winter wheat and is the first step
towards restoring the balance lost by
reason of this year's short crops.
Freezing weather in the western and
southern states is not expected to do
much damage as the crops are nearly
all harvested.
Bank clearings for the last few weeks
have established new records. The
gain at New York over last year is
44.3 per cent. One hundred and six
cities report increases over last year,
while eight exhibit losses.
Ann Arbor Nurse in Tuberculosis Work
Miss Mary Wilson, of Ann Arbor;
visiting nurse of the state of Michigan,
left Bad Axe the first of the week to
go to Frankfort, where she will re-

of the Michigan anti-tuberculosis asso-

Gabrilowlsch an
rtist of Depth
Ossip Gabrilowitsch, the gifted Russ-
ian pianist whose reputation is world
wide and who is ranked as among the
four or five leading pianists of the
world, will appear in Hill auditorium
Dec. 12.
It is fourteen years since this Russ-
ian genius visited America for the first
time, and the impression he made then
was very favorable.At that time he
was twenty-three years of age and a
player of wonderful freshness and fire.
Two years later he visited America
again, and once more showed himself
an ardent lover of beauty and an art-
ist of great intellectual depth. It was
not, however, until after Gabrilowitsch
had come to this country after another'
lapse of years that the critics deemed
him of full maturity as well as of in-
finite charm and brillancy. His re-
cord since that time has been one of
extreme interest as he has come into
prominence as conductor and compos-
er as well as executant. The orches-
tral concerts which he has conducted
in Europe have been in many ways
unique and have won him wide ac-
A prominent European critic writing
of the pianist said: "As Gabrilowitsch
has matured in years his art has
steadily advanced, while his temper-
amental ardor has remained undim-
ished. His technique seems even more
finely developed. He enters with such
virile spirit into his interpretations
that he carries the listener quite be-
yond his own preconceived imaginings.
Such a player would awaken the most
unmusical audience to a sense of

tive or the negative side of the in-
heritance tax question and will de-
liver a five-minute speech on any one
point covered in the brief. The judges
then have the privilege of question-
ing the speaker on any phase of the

The last week in January has been
set aside as the time for the rifle team
to make its debut. The Wolverine
sharpshooters will engage in 13
matches altogether and will meet some
of the best aggregations in the coun-
try. Thirteen weeks will be consumed
in shooting off the entire schedule.
Next week the rifle club will start
building a regulation range in the
Waterman gymnasium. Prof. C. E. Wil-
son of the engineering college will
watch the team practice here. Only
members of the team and those who
bave affiliated themselves with the club
will be permitted to use the range.

Fresh Lits to Play Soph Engineers
The football game between the fresh
lits and the . soph engineers has been
postponed until Saturday afternoon.
Sophomore engineers who are en-
rolled in course one in engineering ma-
terials, accompanied by Prof. W. L.
Badger and Dr. Laird, will leave Ann
Arbor on the 5:35 Michigan Central
train tomorrow morning for Detroit,
where the party will visit the follow-
ing manufacturing plants: The Tim-
ken-Detroit Axle company, where the
heat treatment of steel automobile
parts will be noted; the Michigan Steel
Castings company, the Semet-Solvay
company, manufacturers of coke with
recovery of by-products; the Detroit
Iron and Steel company, and the Mich-
igan Malleable Iron company. The
visiting party will number about 100.
The seniors of the metallurgy de-
partment accompanied by Prof. A. E.
White will also leave with the party of
sophomores to visit the plant of the
Parkard Motor company and that of
the Ford Motor company, where a spe-
cial study of the heat treatment of

At their class meeting yesterday the
senior architects decided to dedicate
the architects' section of the Michigan-
ensian to Prof. J. J. A. Rousseau. Prof.
Rousseau was formerly a member of
the faculty of the Ecole des Beaux
Arts, in Paris, but owing to the lack
of students on account of the war, he
has come to this country for the dura-
tion of the conflict.
A novel scheme for the decoration of
the class canes was also adopted. The
members of the class will carve their
names on each other's canes,. and as
there are 25 men in the class, the
canes will be well covered with "trade
The seniors further decided not to
wear corduroys, but instead a commit-
tee will be appointed by the president
to devise some distinctive hats or
coats for the class.

"The Magazine Girls," headlining
the Majestic this week, and Morris
Golden, "The Yiddle with the Fiddle"''
saves the Majestic this week from en-
tirely presenting vaudeville of the or-
dinary sort. Morris Golden, a wizard
with the violin, and with a line of or-
iginal patter that gains more of its
value from what he does not say than
by what he does say, is really some-
thing new in the line of light enter-
tainment. His is the best single act
seen thus far this season.
"The Magazine Girls", six of them,
supported by Doc Baker and Elaine,
Julyette, present a fast-moving musi-
cal comedy playlet that is greatly aid-
ed by brilliant costumes and some
quick changes.
Tilford & Co., in "Abe Stibble" a{
ventriloquist act, amused some to
whom the marvel of "speaking by
proxy" was new.
The Barry Girls gave one good num-
ber, their Chinese song, but the patter
was slow-moving, and while perhaps
new, was possessed of very little
laughable qualities.
Bell and Eva, opening the bill, in
"Bounds and Bounces" work hard and
were given a generous hand for their
Immigration Commissioner Says Plan
Will Solve Existing Em-
ployment Condition
Chicago, Nov. 23.-Plans for a na-
tional clearing house for labor, to be
conducted in connection with the gov-
ernment immigration stations, were
indorsed by the representatives of 120
Illinois women's organizations at a
conference held in the government im-
migration station and employment of-
fice yesterday.
Anthony Caminetti, commissioner
general of immigration, said the plan
would solve to a great extent the un-
employment problem.
Commissioner Caminetti is now mak-
ing a tour through the country to ob
tam the support of women's organiza-
tions. Before leaving for St. Louis,
he said campaigns to further the young
men's and boys' and the professional
service departments will be set on
foot, as soon as the women's depart-
ment has been properly arranged.
At the conference, Caminetti urged
the opening of employment bureaus in
all cities where men, women, and chil-
dren could obtain work. The national
bureau will have two units, one to
handle immigration and the other em-
ployment. All applicants for positions
will be examined as to their qualifica-
tions before being sent to a prospec-
tive employer and all employers will
be investigated before anybody will be
sent to them.
A resolution was passed indorsing
the government's employment bureau
for women.
