payments spread over ten years would
be reduced to a farce. In Austria,
where the rate rose to 65 per cent on
large fortunes, receipts ultimately
covered the direct cost of administra-
tion. This can hardly be called a suc-
A capital levy is not only ds-
astrous but unnecessary. Drastic
economics and a strong tax policy can
solve France's domestic finances. After
all, these huge debt sums are owed to
her own people. The problem is that
of transferring wealth from one groupi
to another through the machinery of1
taxation. This is a difficult task, but
not insoluable. France's foreign debt
situation, however, is a horse of an-
other color. My own conviction is
that only through a reduction in the
luxury schedules of our tariff, for
France's exports to us are primarily
of this type,' and a considerable re-
duction of her debt to us will she be
able to make payments at all
"We could couple such a reduction'
of debt with French disarmament.
This would help France and us. Our
duty and our interests are at one in
this respect. The present time seems
Iextraordinarly favorable for such a
move on our part. Negotiations be-
tween prance, England, and Germany
looking to a guarantee of the western
frontier of Germany are pending. If
put through, French disarmament is,
feasible. France's financial situation
makes disarmament necessary. A
proposition from the United States to
reduce France's debt might well re-
ceive a favorable response."

Believe Legislators Will Criticise
Government For Failure to
Consult Parliament
Paris, April 7.-(By A. P.)-The po-
litical crisis brought on by the ex-
treme measures proposed by the
French government to relieve the em-
barrassment of its treasury is now be-
fore parliament and debate will begin
tomorrow with about even chances
that Premier Herriot's cabinet will
succumb at the end of it.
The concensus of opinion in the lob-
by of the chamber of deputies this
evening after the intrdouction of bills
for a forced loan and for an increase !
of 4,000,000,000 francs in paper money
was that the latter measure would
pass, because the limit of issue fixed
by law already has been exceeded,
but that favorable action by the cham-I
ber on the proposal for a forced loan
was doubtful.
The chamber was reported non-
plussed by the announcement today
that the increase in the issue of bankf
notes was to "regularize an existing
situation." This was the first public
disclosure of the fact that the author-
ized limit of 41,000,000,000 francs in
paper money had been exceeded, al-
though rumors to that effect have beenI
current on the Bourse for severalj
weeks. The French parliament was.
placed in the face of an accomplished
fact. The money is in circulation to
an amount of about 2,000,000,000 more
than authorized by law, and the sit-
uation must be made regular.
Both the senate and the chamber
are expected to pass the bill author-
izing a 4,000,000,000 increase, but with
sharp criticism of the government for
resorting to such an expedient without
consulting parliament. Senator Henry
Berenger, head of the finance commit-I
tee of the senate, this afternoon said
that the proposed issue in excess of
the legal limit was not for commercial
purposes but for the ease of the treas

Decide Fate Of
University Bill
By Visit Today
1iansing, April 7.-(By A. P.)-In
an attempt to come to a final decision
on the amount of money to be ap-
propriated for the University of Mich-
igan, the senate committees on finance
and appropriations will pay a visit to
the state University tomorrow. An-
nouncement to this effect was made
today by Senator Brower of Jackson,
administration floor leanler.
1Action on the bill will not be taken
until after the committee reportskon
its trip to the University.
By prolonging its session this after-
noon beyond the customary period for
adjournment, the Senate succeeded in
speeding up consideration of the long
line of bills now on the floor. Two
score or more of bills were disposed
of on the third readings and in the
committee of the whole.
This action clears the calendar of a
large share of the measures and
makes room for consideration of ap-
propriation measures now the subject
of controversy between the two
