TerpisFor Settlemento!f Ethiopian
(Question Rejected by Haile- Selassie
JAPAN GIVES SUPREMACY
ON SEAS TO GREAT BRITAIN.
Latest terms for the settlement
of the Ethiopian question have been
emphatically rejected by Emperor
Haile Selassie, as giving a prem-
ium to Italy for aggression in de-
fiance of the league of Nations.
The tentative plans submitted by
•prance and , England would
give Italy Ethiopian territory con-
necting Eritrea ad Italian Somali-
land and unofficial control of more
land south of Addis Ababa. Mus-
solini was expected to refuse unless
given dominating / control, but
"P(ould probably use the proposals
as a basis for negotiations.
The small nations of the Little
Entente . and Scandinavian Penin-
sula united to protest against the
action of the League of Nations in
permitting II Puc.e to conduct the
African campaign; these nations
fear similar aggression if the Lea-
gue Covenant is disregarded. -
Japan is willing for Great Bri-
tain to retain the supremacy of the
seas,, a delegation to the five-power
naval conference said, but demands
equality with the United States. It
was expected that Norman. Davis,
representative.of the United States,
would reject this proposal on the
grounds that America wants equal-
ity of security, but not necessarily
of tonnage. The global parity pro-?
posal would allow each nation to
build the land of vessels it needs
most up to a certain tonnage. All
three powers would have to scrap
a number of warships.
Hitler was alloted only six lines
in the new "Wer Ist's," German
"Who's Who," while General Goar-
ing, cabinet member, received
three-fourths of a column and the
ex-ruler1 Wilhelm II, received a
column and a half.
Governor Landon of Kansas, po-
tential Republican' nominee for
president, declared that the next
election will determine whether the
American people want to .maintain
the parliamentary government nec-
essary to democratic institutions or
prefer to accept, a further concen-
tration of power. :
Work on the Florida Canal will
have to stop.in January unless, a
yearly outlay, of $25,000,000 is au-
thorized by the Works Relief Ad-
ministration, according to the A.?-,
my Engineer Corps. The reply to
this request will have an important
influence on the Democratic chances
; in Florida next year as North Flor-
; ida wants the canal and South Flor-
, .ida. is fighting it on the grounds
that salt water will seep into wells
in the central part of the state and
that the southern part will be cut
off and ruined commercially.
.Great Britain formally announced
Wednesday that she. would be un-
able to pay the $582,803,305 due the
United States^ Dec. 15.
Thirty thousand half dollars of
the 1,500,000 authorised by Con-

CITY BUS, 5c
Makes the Loop Every 10 Minutes
tt Sport Hob Nobs
This fair weather and crisp
north wind is a God-send to those
baslceteers. There is just enough
zest to make them enthusiastic.
To forecast that the squad is as
formidable as it was last year is
not all hot air. From the way they
are tossng the ball , around, drib-
bling, and ringing baskets, these
men promise plenty of headaches
in store for the coach that tries to
head the Plowboys off from an-
other undefeated season.
The schedule is not completed.
A. week's . play in. San Antonio is
being plannel. Institutions slated
to mix with the Wisdom men in-
clude Daniel Baker, Howard
Payne, Decatur Baptist, Hanger,
Hillsboro, VVeatberford, TMC, NT
AC, and Mexico City YMCA.
Augmented by a host of promis-
ing freshman material, the cinder
performers threaten to report as
champions of the conference. If we
may judge from the list of candi-
dates for the sprints, there is go-
ing to be quite a bit of fight to
see who will make the squad. ■
Of the lettermen returning for
the thinly clads, Elmer Finley is
probably outstanding. His record
last year' supports the, team's
judgment irj electing him captain.
In the conference meet held on
Hays Field, Elmer broke two rec-
ords. He broke the tape in the 100-
yard daah in 10.2 seconds, then re-
peated in i;he 220 with 22.5. • He
also ran in the 440-yard relay and
. Another welcomed lad is Clovis
Johnson. A naturally crack quar-
ter-miler, he broke theVConference
record last spring with 61.7 sec-
ondSi His team mates look to him
to supply a flna] drive as anchor
man on the mile relay. However,
it is expected that Harper, who
trailed Johnson only a few feet in
the quarter . last ■ year, will be in
there at the finish.
Jude Smith is out this year to
win a trip to the Olympic games.
He tossed the javelni for a coo
ference record of 199 feet, 7 1-5
Odell Elliott is the man who
floats through the air with the
greatest of ease. He leaped 23 feet
11 inches Ia*st year for a . new
mark and is out to break .his own
.record this year.
GRASSBURR PICTURES MUST
BE IN BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Pictures for the Grassburr have
been coming in rather slowly un-
til the last three or four days.
Most of the club pictures have
been turned in and the rest are ex-
pected before Saturday.
Tuesday the Cadet Corps had its
picture made for ,the annual. Thp.
Sandblowers got a break by being
first to face the camera. Really
were on the way to the Armory, be-
fore A Company marched off the
Some of our new officers surely
were happy to have their pictures
made in their uniforms with but-
tons and sabers. Captain Hart had
to be told by Captain Davis to put
his saber back in the sheath.
Those who expect to get their in-
dividual pictures in should do so
before the Christmas holidays.
After looking up and dowtj and
all around we- come to . the conclu-
sion that we are going to have
one real basketball team.
With Captain Oran' Spears,
handsome young athlete from
down Forney way, at the helm,
the-Plowboys arc. bound for ; that
ole undefeated record, again.
What is this we hear? Tarleton
has to win only two more games to:
set a basketball record. I-Iey! Hey!
You thinly clad basketeers, let's
have that old record to hang in
our hall Of fame. If you hit the
basket and guard like the captain
does, then the trophy is in thp bag:
Cinched! Plucked! And' stored un-
der lock and key.' , ■

Now that the Alamo City trip
