In the small chamber of Xuanwumen Congress, Cai Yuanpei, Chen Duxiu, Li Dazhao, and Hu Shi were seated dignifiedly. This was the proposal meeting for Cai Yuanpei’s recall. However, after the meeting began, the proposer Yi Kuilong did not come to the meeting. As the second proposer, Zhang Changli not only refused to explain but also refused to debate, saying that this would not affect the voting on the motion and he could vote directly.
Cai Yuanpei and some congressmen all protested against this. They want to impeach Cai Yuanpei without allowing him to protest or justify. This is a trivial matter. But Zhang Fengzai immediately led the people to instigate a vote and instructed a large number of reporters to swarm into the venue to take pictures.
Zhao Shiyan stood up and suggested that the articles about the attack on Peking University were mostly written by a reporter named Tanren, who was the pseudonym of Zhang Changli’s nephew Zhang Fengzai.

The students actually He smashed things like shoes and vegetables at Zhang Fengzai one after another.
Seeing that the parliament was about to end, Yi Kuilong hurried over to apologize to Cai Yuanpei. He told everyone the cause and effect of his love for his daughter who was not mistakenly used by the gangsters. Fortunately, Zhang Shizhao’s teachings made him sober. He formally proposed to withdraw this absurd motion and said that he would make a deep review to the Congress. Some members asked Zhang Changli to explain. Zhang Changli beckoned and called Zhang Fengzai over. He slapped him and said that he did such a stupid thing because he was bewitched by him.
Chen Duxiu smiled and watched the two people acting in front of him, then stood up and walked to the stage to describe the situation of “New Youth”. He said that “New Youth” is an independent and responsible newspaper, and he does not have any affiliation with Peking University. Chen Duxiu elaborated on the “New Youth” magazine, and they will continue to adhere to the purpose of implementing Mr. De’s Mr. Sai. Japanese reporters asked Li Dazhao questions, and Li Dazhao did not shy away from his longing for Marxism and answered seriously.
The farce of this proposal of course ended with Cai Yuanpei’s victory. The group returned to Peking University. Liu Shipei gave the written beliefs to everyone. He said that “Guo Gu” is only a literary argument and discussion with “New Youth” and will never rise. When it comes to personal and political struggles, Li Dazhao and Hu Shi admire such an open approach.
Cai Yuanpei proposed that they also have to express their views on Zhang Fengzai, the inner ghost, and Hu Shi, who has always been gentle and elegant, also said that Peking University will never tolerate such a person. Zhang Changli brought Zhang Fengzai, who was expelled from Peking University, to Wu Bingxiang late at night, but Wu Bingxiang poured tea and water and was very flattering, and said that gold like Zhang Fengzai can shine everywhere.

Gu Weijun was extremely disappointed with the proposals, so the presence of the Chinese delegation was gone. significance. Fortunately, the US government proposed that Japan’s proposal to take over Germany’s rights in the Shandong Peninsula should be discussed by the Chinese delegation.

Wang Zhengting and Gu Weijun were appointed to attend, and Gu Weijun gave a speech. The Paris Peace Conference in 1919 re-divided the world order. Although Gu Weijun argued hard at the peace conference and demanded that the Shandong Peninsula be directly returned to China, the Beiyang government Cao Rulin and others actually issued a statement saying that Gu Weijun’s remarks were purely personal.
Chen Yu hurriedly came to Wang Daxie, and the Japanese Minister Xiaoba came to see him, demanding to prevent Gu Weijun from publishing the Sino-Japanese secret agreement, and ordered him to call the Chinese delegation to be cautious in his words and deeds. Wang Daxie smiled indifferently, saying that some people in the Chinese government are afraid of Japan, but the Chinese people are not afraid of Japan.
The next day, the news that the Japanese minister forcibly rushed into the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to intimidate the Chinese side was published in the newspapers. The teachers and students of Beijing published a rally on this, and selected more than ten officials including Zhao Shiyan to unite with major universities in Beijing to take concerted action to boycott Japan The act of occupying the Shandong Peninsula.
Wang Daxie hurriedly summoned Lu Zhengxiang to Paris. The Chinese delegation now has different opinions on whether the two withdrawn sovereignty proposals need to be submitted again. Gu Weijun showed the reprimands of major domestic universities and newspapers to Japan’s unreasonable requests for everyone to read. Lu Zhengxiang also said that the delegations are now sympathetic to China’s situation. At this time, the Japanese should not be pleased. He suggested that he send the post and then go to Wilson.

Guo Xingang asked whether the Western and Eastern occupation of the Shandong Peninsula should not be returned, as Mohist said. But Hu Shi was very evasive and thought This issue is a political issue, not an academic issue discussed today.
