W. Yen, Chinese delegate to the league, announced at an extraordinary session of the assembly today. Acceptance of the terms would be "tantamount to surrender," Yen said. "We feel the only alternative is further resistance to the Japanese ' attack," 'Yen added, "and regard the continuation of hostilities as unavoidable." GEN'EVA, March 3 - League of Nations leader^ were skeptical of permanent peace at Slianghai when the special League assembly convened today to consider the Far Eastern conflict. The Chinese regarded the Japanese action halting operations as a trick to hold the territory gained. They doubted if the Chinese government could accept an armistice made entirely on Japanese terms. "The Japanese want to remain where they are instead of retiring," Dr. W. W. Yen, head of the Chinese delegation, told the United Press. "It is just a tr^ck to maintain the status quo." A prominent League leader told the United Press he doubted the permanency of the sudden change at Shanghai because the League's hopes had been dashed so often. "We naturally welcome an armistice, ^ut will anxiously await further news from both sides," he said. Joseph  Paul-Boncour of  France opened the assembly, which was called by Chinese under provisions of article XV of the League covenant.
