Pick Finley for ASUO
Prcxy Nominee L
+ By Tex Thomason
The world has taken another
step toward that seemingly inevi
table conflict. In the cold grey
dawn of February 26 young army
fanatics struck to wipe out the
liberal element of the Japanese
government. They were highly
successful, Premier Keisuke Okada,
Admiral Viscount Makoto Saito,
former premier and at his death
lord keeper of the privy seal, and
General Jotaro Watanabe, chief of
military education, are dead. Kor
ekiyo Takahashi, minister of fi
nance, and Admiral Kantaro Suzu
ki, lord chamberlain of the impe
rial court, were wounded.
With the tight censorship that
Japan has clamped on, it is impos
sible to obtain an accurate picture
of just what the situation is, but
that it is very critical is indicated
by this very censorship.
London is quoted as observing
that the revolt was inspired by
three developments:
1. Lack of more forceful action
by the Japanese government in
Manchukuoan - Mongolian border
2. The sudden unexplained halt
of Japanese penetration in north
China last November.
3. Dismissal of Gen, Jinzaburo
Mazaki, ex-inspector - general of
the military education department,
whose successor, Gen. Jotaro Wat
anabe, was reported assassinated.
The assassinations are the ex
treme militarists’ way of answer
ing the people of Japan, who only
last week voted against militarism
and for parliamentary rule by es
tablishing Premier Okada more
firmly in power than he had been
since his induction into office in
1934. The samurai, or the war
riors, have given notice that they
will brook no interference with
what they believe the proper course
to put Japan in her “place in the
sun.” They are off, and heaven
alone knows where they will end
up. The greatest of the moderate,
liberal statesmen have been done
away with. There are none to re
place them, and if there were,
what could they do? It has been
proven over and over again that
those who control the army con
trol the nation, and in Japan the
government does not control the
army or the navy. The ministers
of war and navy are from the ac
tive services and, though members
of the cabinet, are not responsible
to it or to parliament, so they do
just about as they please.
Russia eyes all this with grave
misgivings. The border clashes
along the Manchukuo-Outer Mon
golia frontier have intensified and
strained Russo-Japanese relations
almost to the breaking point. She

Pi Delta Plii Hears
Longfellow Story
Members of Pi Delta Phi heard
the story of Longfellow in France,
which was presented in French by
Dr. Carl Johnson, assistant pro
fessor, at the honorary's monthly
meeting in Gerlinger hall at 7:30.
Dr. Johnson, who spent two
years living at the home of Long
fellow while attending Cambridge
university, received his doctor’s de
gree in the subject of Longfellow
in France. While living at the
poet's home he had access to pri
vate correspondence and delved in
to hundreds of original manuscripts
of the great man kept in vaults.
Last evening he related in
French, Longfellow's voyage from
New York to Europe where he
visited not only France, but Italy,
Germany, and Spain as well.
The club decided to postpone the
meeting in March because of exams
and spring vacation. It was
planned to have a purely social
meeting, where French conversa

It has been tentatively called the
“browsing” room and will be open
to all students of the University.
Walls will be lined with good
books, most of which will be gifts,
all in shelves conveniently placed
for easy access and inspection.
There will be an attendant on
hand at all times, not to enforce
peace and quiet, but to help in the
selection of useful books, and to
charge out those the students want
to take home overnight.
The present plans for the struc
ture have placed the “browsing”
room on the main floor between
the two principal entrances, facing
Condon hall. It will be 25 by 90

The vote was held to reveal the
choice of the entire student body
for class and student body offices,
before political machines swung in
to annual spring campaigns.
About fifty ballots were distrib
