Boat Kept Waiting
While Daughter of
Laval ~Steps Out'
NEW YORK, Oct. 27. - (P) - A
queen of the sea waited five and
one-half hours today while the
daughter of the premier of France
danced with a Yankee mayor at a
millionaire's birthday party.
The Ile de France was to have
sailed at five minutes past mid-
night with Premier Laval and his
daughter, Josee, aboard. At that
hour, however, the orchestra in the
fashionable night club, the Central
Park Casino, was playing "Cupid
on the Birthday Cake" and Mada-
moiselle Josee Laval was dancing
with Mayor James J. Walker. Mon-
sieur Laval was watching with an-
expansive smile, and a group of
socially important persons who were
gathered to honor the natal day of
Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney also
beamed their approval.
The boat waited. Finally, at 1:15
a. m., when Mayor Walker's car
rolled up with Josee, the premier
close behind, the captain decided
to postpone sailing until a more
advantageous tide rolled out at 5:30
a. m.
The mayor went aboard to wish
the premier bon voyage and to say
formally, "best wishes to your coun-
try for what she is doing to benefit
humanity." M. Laval replied with
an expression of admiration for

Madamoiselle Laval declared that
her last five hours in New York were
the happiest-they included the last
act of "The Vanities" and the night

of Fifty-Two Countries
Disarmament Question

WASHINGTON, Oct. 27.-(P)
-America will reply favorably
this week to a League of Nations
request for participation in an im-
mediate one-year armament holi-
The proposed truce, in which
52 nations have been invited to
join, has the wholehearted ap-
proval of President Hoover and
Secretary Stimson.
They believe it will add greatly to
the prospects for success at the gen-
eral disarmament conference in
February, and take a heavy finan-
cial burden off the world.
A detailed communication, speci-
fying the military and naval con-
struction activities that this coun-
try forego, is to be framed at the
state department before Sunday,
the expiration date pet by the league
of replies.
Stimson Answers.
In preparing the formal answer,
Secretary Stimson will have the
assistance of Hugh Wilson, Ameri-
can minister to Switzerland, and
representative at thie league of dis-
armament committee sessions at
Geneva in September when the
holiday was proposed. Wilson is ex-
pected to return from his home in
Chicago this week.
Participation in the move con-
forms with the administration's
attitude of sympathy toward all
proposals intended to reduce arma-
Compromise Proposed.
This attitude was expressed to
the league's disarmament commit-
tee by Wilson at Geneva when the
one-year proposal advanced by for-
eign Minister Grandi of Italy was
under consideration.
The Italian proposal failed of
adoption on encountering French
and Japanese opposition.
Men Made to Shave
by Hobart Faculty
GENEVA, N. Y., Oct. 27.-()-
A faculty seemingly unsympa-
thetic with the loyalty of several'
Hobart students who pledged
themselves not to shave until
their Alma Mater won a football
game, was responsible for the ap-
pearance today of faces clean
shaven for the first time in near-
ly a month.
A group of students after the
Syracuse game vowed not to
shave until Hobart broke a suc-
cession of 21 straight losses.
Defeats by St. Lawrence, Union
and Kenyon followed and a
chapter of the "House of David"
seemed immiennt until faculty
members unofficially suggested to
the students that they show their
confidence in the team in some
other manner.

Kirby Page Condemns Presence
of R.O.T.C. Unit on

Japanese intervention in China
is exactly the same thing as United
States intervention in Nicaragua or
Haiti, Kirby Page, nationally known
writer and editor, told a large stu-
dent audience here yesterday.
"Though in reality both are of
the same kind of action, motivated
by the same causes, and desirous of
the same results, we believe our in-
tervention to be justifiable," he
Page, speaking under the spon-
sorship of the Peace council and
the Student Christian association,
condemned the doctrine of the doc-
trine of the right of armed inter-
vention as one of the national dog-
mas most detrimental to peace. "If
the United States goes to war
again, the chances are a hundred
to one that it will be as a result
of an armed intervention expedi-
tion," he said.
Loud applause greeted Page when
he attacked William Randolph
Hearst for his dogmatic stand on
United States intervention in inde-
pendent countries.
Page scored the presence of an
R. O. T. C. unit on campus as an
encouragement for war. "Propa-
gandists of militarism argue that
the best way to preserve peace is
to prepare for war, and that war
is inevitable," he said. "But if war
is inevitable can we prevent it by
being prepared?"
The minority in favor of militar-
ism, Page asserted, attempt to instil
and maintain fear in the minds of
the people of a nation, because un-
less fear can be maintained the
people will refuse to pay armament

400 Men From Lower Peninsula
Promise to Contribute
to Hoover Pool.
DETROIT, Oct. 27.-(P)-Michi-
gan bankers, meeting here Monday,
pledged the resources of their in-
stitutions to the Hoover credit pool
and formed a state organization
to participate in the half billion
dollar National Credit corporation.
Four hundred bankers from the
lower peninsula attended the meet-
ing, then returned to their homes
to recommend to their respective
boards appropriations to carry out
the pool's function. A loan com-
mittee andregional loan advisors
were named.
Robert O. Lord, president of the
Guardian Detroit bank, presided at
the conference, which was held on
invitation of the Detroit Clearing
House association. He predicted the
corporation w o ul d "re-establish
confidence on the part of the
frightened public in value of prop-
erty, securities and confidence."
Only a small percentage of the
$500,000,000 fund proposed for the
National Credit corporation will be
required, he said, to "increase the
volume of buying and bring literal-
ly hundreds of millions of dollars
from safe-deposit boxes and other
hiding places."

Independents 2. This gives the
national government a total of
22o against 23 for the opposition,
disregarding the independents.
The heaviest blow that Labor
could suffer came in the first re-
turns with the defeat of Arthur
Henderson, leader of the opposition,
at Burnley.
Henderson Loses Seat.
Mr. Henderson lost his House of
Commons seat to Rear Admiral
Gordon Campbell by a vote of 35,-
126 to 26,917.
Several former Labor ministers
were election casualties. In addition
to Mr. Henderson, who was foreign
secretary in the Labor government,
they included Herbert Morrison,
former minister of transport; Tom
Shaw, former minister of war; Ar-
thur Greenwood, former minister of
health; John R. Clynes, former
House secretary; Albert V. Alexan-
der, former First Lord of the Ad-
miralty; Margaret Band Field, the
former minister of labor; Sir Sam-
uel Hoare, former secretary of state
for India, and Sir Ben Turner, the
former minister of mines,
Symptoms Impressive.
An impressive symptom of the
early returns was the huge major-
ities piled up by the Conservatives.
With the elimination of triangular
contests among Conservatives, Lib-
eral and Labor candidates, minority
representation became impossible,
and in straight fights Labor often
was swamped.

lor of the Exchequer Philip Snow-
den, was beaten by 12,000 votes at
Accrington, where he ran as a Labor
As returns increased there was no
relief for the gloom in the Labor
camp. An element, however, which
might develop ominously for Mr.
