The great debt that Amerika and
the nations of Europe owe to France

of consistently good literature will
be discussed by Rev. Frederick B.
Fisher at 7:30 o'clock tonight at the

To Discuss Herrick.
The unique position of Myron
Herrick in Franco-American rela-
tions will also be described by the
speaker in his discussion of France.
Herrick, Dr. Fisher stated in an
interview yesterday, understood
France perhaps as well as any
American since Benjamin Franklin.
Whereas the other nations of
Europe have produced great literary
figures such as Shakespeare, Dante,
and Goethe. France, he said, has a
consistent record of high achieve-
ment in literature covering a period
of 800 years. While other nations
such as England and America have
been effecting a revolution in our
industrial life and in the field of
world trade, France, he stated, has
gone rapidly to the fore in the ar-
tistic and aesthetic phases of life.1
As an interesting angle on how
France has infuenced our country
in recent years, Dr. Fisher expressed
the belief that owr soldiers after
the war brought home some feeling

Trial of Members of Outlawed
Party Parallels That
of Engineers.
But Defendants Pledge SupportI
to Government If They
Are Acquitted.
(By Assocfated Press)
MOSCOW, March 7. -- Fourteen
members o the oulawcd Menshe-
viki party stood in a Bolshevik'
court today and almost begged to
be shot.
This trial paralleled that of eight
prominent engineers tried and con-
victed last year. The engineers all
admittedatheir guilt and declared
that as a result of their plotting
against the proletarian dictator-
ship they deserved nothing better
than death, although most of them
hoped for mercy, and got it.
Make Full Confessions.
All the 14 defendants made full
confessons today. The sensation of
the hearing was the lengthy speech
of Michael Yakubovich, former as-
sistant chief of the supply sectionl
of the trade commissariat. :
It was a red hot communist
speech, and Yakubovich's flaming
whiskers, for all the world likel
those of a Bolshevik in a typical1
American cartoon, bounced vio-
lently as he exhorted and gesticu-;
"I was on the other side of the
barrier, he shouted, "and now I am
on this side. The prosecutor wasa
right; I should be shot. I deserve
it and have nothing to say againsti

Most Plead for Leniency.
The impassioned orator sobbed
frequently throughout the speech
and was crying outright when he1
took his seat. In the crowded
courtroom there were many mur-
murs of sympathy for him and it
was generally believed he had talk-'
ed himself out of facing a firing
All the defendants made lauda-
tory speeches favoring communism;

crated their guilt and declared they
were ready to give their lives for
the country. Most of them asked
leniency, however, and promised to
devote the rest of their lives to the
support of the communist govern-

WASHINGTON, Mar. 7-An effort
to work out an enlightened legis-

was given tonight by Senator La-
follette as the impelling reason for

Lafolette, speaking over a na-

.broadcasting system in the radio
forum arranged by the Washington
Star, said industrialists had con-
centrated on enlarging production
but had neglected the basic prob-
lem of enabling consumers to buy
the enlarged output of factories.
"Many have offered no solution
of the present situation other than
mergers and reduction of wages,"
he said, and few had "attempted to
display enlightened leadership."
He judged that President Hoover
had not only been remiss in his
duty of advising Congress from
time to time on the State of the
Union but had used the authorit3
of his office as a sanction for mis-
