LONDON, Jan. 13.—(C.P>-Japan has decided to withdraw from the five-powers naval limitation conference because of the refusal of Britain and the United States to grant her demand for naval equality, it was announced tonight. Japan will re-state her position about naval limitation, just as she did before resigning Irom the League of Nations when the league denounced her actions in Manchuria, and then wUl walk out of the naval parleys. British Informed The Japanese decision was conveyed to the British delegation, as hosts of the conference, by short, stocky Admiral Osami Nagano, chief Nipponese delegate. The United States delegation was informed later. * The re-statement of the Japanese attitude was expected to be in the nature of a general statement to the world outlining again Tokyo’s contention that Japan must be recognized as the equal in all respects of the greatest of world powers- New Pact Expected Admiral Nagano and Ambassador Matsuzo Nagai, his associate, probably will return to Tokyo via the United States. If Washington shows interest, it was said, they may talk informally about the possibility of a separate Japanese-American naval understanding. British experts saw these re percussions as likely to follow the Japanese withdrawal: 1. Japan's position in eastern Asia win be strengthened and she will be able to hasten her program for domination of China and to impress upon all Asiatics her determination to make real her declaration that Japan is to be the dominant force in aU the ‘Far East. 2. The movement for an Anglo-Japanese understanding with regard to mutual rights in China will be abandoned. Britain Regards Pacific 3. Britain will seek a general understanding with the United States, particularly with regard to the Pacific ocean and the Orient where Britain hopes for American support in curbing Japanese expansjon. 4. Militaristic domination of Japanese life will be intensified and the civilian groups supporting parliamentary government again overshadowed as they were in the wave of intense nationalism which followed the Manchurian adventure of the Japanese army. Morgan Inquiry Reveals Fresh War Sensation Document Shows Wilson’s Suspicions of Huns’ Propagandizing Steel Heads To Be Called Spooks and Spokes Plan Versatile Entertainment For Carnival Tomorrow You needn’t be involved in a bloody murder plot to prove to yourself the dependability of the lie detector used by police and detectives in singling out criminals. You need only visit one of the side-shows provided for your enjoyment by the Spooks and Spokes at their charity carnival tomorrow afternoon. ~ _ Worries about finding Investigations Committee Charges Banker With Coercion in 1915 WASHINGTON, Jan. 13 — <L’JE»— President Wilson suspected Germany in 1915 of seeking to make the United States a “catspaw’ in opening up wartime trade, it was revealed late today at the senate munitions investigation. A document from the files of Col. j E. M. House containing the war president’s suspicions was introduced and hastily withdrawn from the record when Senator Warren a job next year may be dispensed by a consultation with Tanya, the gypsy see-ress, who will reveal all things if her palm is crosed with silver. Other sideshows are being prepared by Lucille Hoff for those who possess the “curiosity that killed a cat.” Plans for entertaining music lovers have not been neglected. The Phi Mu Alpha band wUl entertain W. Barbour, R., N. J., discovered its “unfortunate” use of language. Apparently Barbour had in mind previous references to foreign governments which have brought protests- to Secretary of State Cordell Hull. The investigation, centering chiefly about the war tisie financing and contract business of J. P. Morgan and company developed: Three Points 1. That the Midvale Steel company, Philadelphia, “seriously delayed United States government munitions orders for the 1916 Mexican campaign to give preference to British orders.” Chairman Gerald P. Nye, Republican, North Dakota, said Midvale officials would be summoned next week to explain the situation. 2. That “everybody in Wall street,” according to Morgan’s partner, Thomas W. Lamont, “knew that the house of Morgan had withdrawn from the foreign exchange market in 1915.” Committee members inquired last week whether the firm had not sought to use foreign exchange operations as a lever to force the government to alter its neutrality policy. Morgan Not Blamed 3. That J. Pierpont Morgan, the inquiry’s star witness, stUl subscribes to his 1915 belief that a nation must pay its external debts or incur “the worst form of bankruptcy and disgrace.’’ Morgan said he did not see why his firm should be held to blame lor the delay. The house of Morgan handled billions of dollars’ worth of munitions orders for the British government. “We re not trying to hold you to blame for anything,” replied Raushenbush. “We are merely attempting to show how this thing worked.” Louise Wells . . , ’round and ’round those who thriU to the roll of drums, and Carlton Rogers and Helen Osterhedge will tickle the ivories. And that is not all! Joe Sullivan and Louise Wells will present vocal-lythe latest Jazz—and might even favor their audience with the masterpiece of nonsensical musical absurdity that’s going round and round in most peoples’ heads these days. Times set for the stage shows are 3:00, 4:00, and 4:45 p.m. They will include in addition to the music, the tap dancing of Nancy Holmes and the tumbling of that agile quartet, Hal Newell, Rand Hall, Miles Calvert, and Emil Sady.

Italy Promises British Safety II Duce Also Assures Laval Country To Remain in League of Nations PARIS, Jan. 13.—<U.E>—Premier Benito Mussolini today sent personal assurance to Pmnier Pierre Laval that Italy will not attack Great Britain or quit the League of Nations, the United Press was informed. Italian ambassador to France. Vittorio Cerutti, returning to Pans today after a week in Rome, brought confirmation of II Duce’s two-fold peace promise to Laval, which was conveyed to Count Charles De Chabrun, French ambassador at Rome, last week. Mussolini's promises were; 1. Italy will not quit the League of Nations even if further sanctions are voted. 2. A formal pledge that Italy will not become an aggressor against Great Britain. Although II Duce s pledges are not equivalent to Italo-Ethiopian peace overtures, observers believe they greatly cleared the political atmosphere over Europe, a week before the league council convenes at Geneva to discuss possible extension of sanctions against the Fascist state to include oil. Meanwhile, observers do not expect new peace initiatives from any quarter at present as they believe the moment unpropitious ta that neither Italy nor Ethiopia has gamed a sufficiently crushing military victory. Flght for Life of Doomed Man To Be Carried to Highest Tribunal Attorneys Advise Counsel Application for Writ Will Be Entering Wedge in Desperate Battle TRENTON, N. J., Jan. 13.— Counsel for Bruno Richard Hauptmann, at a secret conference outside of the city tonight, agreed to try to carry the fight for their client’s Ufe back to the United States supreme court. Working with the benefit of thc advice of two Washington attorneys —experts on constitutional law—C. Lloyd Fisher. Frederick A. Pope, and Egbert Rosecrans, the lawyers who defended Hauptmann, planned to try to get an entering wedge into the supreme tribunal through the federal district court. May Apply For Writ The strategy, it was understood, will be to go into federal distric, court either here or in Newark and apply for a writ. There are a dor-en types of writs they could ask for, but they will probably stake all on a demand for a writ of habeas corpus Stripped of its legal language, that means that the attorneys will ask for an order to “produce the body of Bruno Richard Hauptmann in court.” In case their application is denied—and it probably win be, because Judges are reluctant to remove condemned men from the death house—the lawyers then could appeal to a higher, federal court until they reach the nine Judges in Washington who are the supreme arbiters of the law. Race Against Tlrae It was a desperate race against time that the lawyers were running when they met in Pope’s office at Somerville, N. J., today for a three-hour conference. Hauptmann will be executed Friday night unless some court stays the executioner’s hand, or Gov. Harold G. Hoffman grants a reprieve. Hoffman stayed away from his office all day. He was in New York, reported to be working on business connected with the opening of ths New Jersey legislature tomorrow. He will return tomorrow to face an assembly and senate containing many persons hostile to him because of his Intervention in th* Hauptmann case. Threats were heard among New Jersey legislators that an invest i-gation of the governor would be proposed if he grants a reprieve and there even was some talk of impeachment proceedings. Students Urged To Plan Next Semester Course Students are urged by Theron Clark, registrar, carefully to think out in advance fhe courses they wish to take for next, semester, thus avoiding undue waste of time on registration day. and secure more satisfactory programs for the second semester Chapel’s Dedication Scheduled in Foyer Town and Gown will devote its meeting today to the dedication ceremonies for the Little Chapel of Silence, which are to be held in tlie new Foyer building.

Troy’s ‘Man of the Year’ Is Next Wampus Feature Who’s the “Man-of-the-year?” To Time magazine it is Haile Sel-lasie. To S. C. students it is Mussolini. And the “Woman-of-the-year" is Yvonne Dionne, according to Tro-I jan women. But to the Wampus, 1 Trojan magazine, it is none of these j personages. According to the Wampus chief, j whose fourth “colossal” issue will I greet the campus Friday morning, his staff has gone to a great deal or trouble ta scrutinizing public records of outstanding S. C. students, and the unanimious decision as to who is the S. C. “What-a-Man-of-the-Year” will be published in Friday’s January number. “The ‘What-a-Man-of-the-Year’ is one of the outstanding campus figures. He has been chosen for plainly stated reasons. Although his identity cannot be divulged at this time we are certain that the campus will agree with our choice for this honor,” said the Wampus headman. “No, it Isn’t Eames Bishop,” he emphasised. Also included in the January number is a complete parody of a nationally-known magazine, the name of which has not been disclosed as yet. Similar typography as well as quasi-verbatim articles will be included, along with the regular monthly Wampus features. Such outstanding writers as J. Claude Manderbaugh, Asquith Q. Borklittle, and Clark “Tex” Jones will again have *,helr masterpieces included within ihe covers of the unique one, wholly in keeping with the mercenary outlook of the magazine. Scandal, gags, cartoons, subtle humor (and some not so subtle), music and rhythm, and roundabout-campus articles aU add up to make the January issue, out Friday, the “best ever,” according to reports, despite the detriment of several sparkling bits of poetic brilliance. But what stiU remains to be discovered is who is the Wampus 1936 “What-i-Man-of-tbe-Year?” LONDON. Jan. 13—d'.Pi—Rudyard Kipling, “grand old man” of English letters, today underwent a successful abdominal operation. His condition tonight was described aa “good.” The 70-year-old poet and novelist was hurried to Middlesex hospital | this morning, and the operation was ; performed within an hour. Dr. A. 1E. Webb-Johnson, abdominal and gastric specialist, was the surgeon ; in charge.
