WASHINGTON, Oct. 24.-(J)-The
Reconstruction Finance Corporation
will make its first purchase of gold
at a fixed price tomorrow and offi-
cially set in motion the economic
mechanism by which President
Roosevelt hopes to achieve a man-
aged currency and higher prices.
Jesse Jones, chairman of the cor-
poration and Henry Morgantheau,
Jr., acting as spokesman for Presi-
dent Roosevelt, will call at the treas-
ury at 9:30 a. m. and with Acting
Secretary Dean Acheson decide how
much newly-mined gold is to be
bought and what price is to be paid
for it.
Through the regular facilities of
the treasury and Federal Reserve
System, they will be supplied with
gold quotations from London, Paris,
and other foreign centers. The price
they agree on is to be slightly higher
thanthe foreign figures. They"prom-

Roosevelt Kept In By Cold
With President Roosevelt confined
to the White House by a cold, officials'
of the agencies involved were busy
today making preparations for the
transaction. Numerous details had to1
be arranged and a system devised for z
assaying, delivering and storing gold.I

key men in the administration's re-
construction and relief program, alsot

President's absence. Secretary oft

Reaping the highest praise from
critics wherever she appears, Doro-
thy Sands, impersonator of stage and
screen stars, who will appear Wed-
nesday, Nov. 1, in Hill Auditorium,
was enthusiastically received when
she appeared at the Wilson Theater
in Detroit recentlyhto openthe Town
Hall series.
"Miss Sands rocked us with mirth
as she caricatured wicked ladies of
great influence from Delilah to Mata
Har," declared Ralph Holmes, De-
troit Times critic. "Even the wo-
men of the audience laughed."'
Mr. Holmes called Miss Sands a
"rare artist," ranking her with Ruth
Draper and Cornelia Otis Skinner.
"She has perhaps even a slight ad-
vantage over them in being able to
sing most charmingly," he added.
"Miss Sands can hardly fail to face
ever larger audiences on each suc-
cessive return to any community."
Appearing in the triple role of cre-
ative artist, interpretative artist, and
historian, Miss Sands presented her
own one-woman review of the Ameri-
can theater, "Our Stage and Stars,"
the same performance which she will
give here.
"It was a great parade, and fas-

cinating not only because of the ac-
curacy of the impersonations them-
selves but also for the sharp contrast
it afforded between the styles of the
past and the present in stage mate-
rial," Mr. Holmes said.
"'The Picture That's Turned to
the Wall' leaves us limp with laugh-
ter today, almost unable to belive
that such unforgiving righteousness
on the part of the father of a
'wronged' girl ever could have been
so commonly accepted as it was by
an audience at Tony Pastor's," he
From the opening scene Miss
Sands' performance was loudly ap-
plauded, Mr. Holmes said, but when
she made her final exit, leering over
her shoulder with Mae West's clas-

sometime?" the audience fairly

30 Passengers
Dead In Wreck
Of Paris Train'
Engine And Four Coaches
Leave Tracks Rounding
Sharp Curve
EYREUX, France, Oct. 24.-(A)-
Thirty persons are known to be dead
and 36 injured in the wreck of the
Paris-Cherbourg Express train today
near Saint Elier, nine miles from
At least 12 of the dead were wom-
en. No American names appeared
on the casualty list.
The express was rounding a sharp
turn at the time of the accident. The
engine and four coaches hurtled
from the tracks off, a thirty-three
foot viaduct into the Rouloir River.
The fireman and engineer died in
their cab. The derailed coaches were
crushed on the river bed. Many of
the deaths were caused by drowning.
The death list mounted rapidly
through the day as many of those
most seriously injured died in hos-
Senator Pierrer-Adolphe Dudouyt,
72 years old, narrowly escaped
drowning. He was pulled from the
wreckage and carried to safety.
Most ofathe victims were French.
The train was the regular express
which leaves Cherbourg early every
Ten bodies were removed from the
wrecked coaches approximately si-
multaneously in the ;early rescue
work. The injured were removed to
hospitals as fast as rescue facilities

The President went ahead with his
work in his White House study, how-
ever, devoting considerable time to,
the details of the gold-buying agency.
Grain Gains Lost Later
Officials of the RFC, treasury, and
Federal Reserve scanned reports of
second-day market reactions to the
President's plan, announced in his
address of Sunday night. They were1
pleased to note an upward trend in
wheat which carried quotations to the
highest point of the current move-
ment, even though the gain was
erated later by profit taking. A steady
cotton market also brought encour-
The dollar slid downward, but this
brought no expressions of concern. In'
fact, it has been intimated that one
aim of Mr. Roosevelt's currency pro-
gram is to encourage such a trend as
a means of helping domestic prices.
The stock exchange after puzzling
for two days over the effect of the
Roosevelt plan on the general eco-
nomic structure decided late in the
day that the move was inflationary
in nature, and a strong rally ensued.
As in the trading yesterday, gold
stocks were particularly buoyant.
As with virtually all of Mr. Roose-
velt's recovery projects, the prime
purpose of the gold-buying plan was
to increase the prices of the things
the farmer and manufacturer pro-
duce to a level that would give them
a profit and thereby increase busi-
ness activity and, consequently em-


After 40,000 Flips
Science Finds That
You End Up Even
ATHENS, Ga., Oct. 24.-(AP)-
Penny-flipping odds are about even
on heads and tails after 40,000 sci-
entific flips, says Prof. Pope R. Hill,
of the mathematics department of
the University of Georgia, but his
experiments have progressed only
half way.
Months ago the professor began his
flipping. He assembled 200 pennies,
a hundred of one date and a hundred
of another. He balanced each penny
against the other down to one-thou-
sandth of a gram.
Since they were weighed on chem-
ical balances, Prof. Hill said that, in
addition to the heads and tails falls,
he would, get information on the
probability of runs of certain num-
bers as well- as to test the general
law of probability.
He expects to flip the pennies for
the 100,000th time next July, and
then his experiment will be com-
Extra Session
DFepends Upon
New Rum Law
Liquor Control Measure
And Banking Legislation
Would Be Enacted
LANSING, Oct. 24.--(P)-Governor
Comstock is awaiting only the com-
pletion of a liquor control bill by the
State Legislative Council before or-
dering a special session of the Legis-
lature, he said today.
The governor declared the complete
program he willsubmit to the extra
session is about ready.
Receipt of a telegram from Wash-
ington tentatively accepting the pro-
posal to enact a law giving the ad-
ministrative board power to nego-
tiate Federal loans for the $25,000,-
000 State building program, ended
conjecture in that direction. The gov-
ernor has made up his mind what'
banking legislation is.needed. All that'
is lacking is a liquor control neas-
ure that will be workable after the
Eighteenth Amendment is repealed.
"There is no use in holding a spe-
cial session for any one of these sub-'
jects. I want to put them all to-
gether," the governor said.
Whether the extra session will be
held early in November or around the
first of December depends on de-
velopments in connection with the
liquor control- measure. A subcom-
mittee of the legislative council is to
meet here this week and hopes to
reach agreement on a control draft
by Friday or Saturday. Next week
the council will convene to listen to
the recommendations of the sub-
committee. How long it will take the
council to decide upon what sort of a,
bill should be submitted no one was1
able to state.
Mooring Of Graf Zeppelin

AKRON, Ohio, Oct. 24.--()-A

PARIS, Oct. 24.--()-A strong
coalition, government like that of
Raymond Poincare in 1926 and the
sidetracking of Socialists for a new
Center majority were urged on Pres-
ident Albert Lebrun in protracted
conferences today as the proper gov-
ernment to succeed the fallen cab-
inet of Edouard Daladier.
M. Daladier's denunciation of the
Socialist leader, Leon Blum, as the
Chamber of Deputies this morning
gave the Premier a:vote of no con-
fidence on his budget-balancing
wrecked present chances of bridging
the breach.
A resumption of the old Left ma-
jority thus was considered impossible
because of the bitterness between
Daladier's party, the Radical Social-
ist, and its erstwhile supporters, the
Favor Socialist Exclusion
The elimination of the Socialists,
whose hostile votes split the old ma-
jority and drove out former Premiers
Edouard Herriot and Joseph Paul-
Boncour in the same way as they
did Daladier, was declared essential
in most camps.
A possibility was seen tonight that
Camille Chautemps, Radical party
leader and former premier, or Jules
Adolphe, Theodore Steeg, a Radical
Socialist who has held many minis-
terial posts, might be asked to try
their luck at forming a cabinet.
If they fail, as many quarters ex-
pected, Senator Albert Sarraut may
be urged to form a strong ministry
supported by the Center.
Daladier's Return Unlikely
The return ,of Daladier was sug-
gested by the veteran Herriot, but
this was considered unlikely unless
the others fail.
Meanwhile, the broad lines of the
present foreign policy and the safe-
guarding of the franc were expected
to continue.
It was on the franc issue that
Daladier's government got into
trouble. He had asked an 8,000,000,-
000-franc (about $440,000,000) taxa-
tion and economy program as essen-
tial to balancing the budget and pro-
tecting the franc.
He was defeated by 329 votes to'
241 on a measure of confidence re-
sulting from an impasse on a com-
promise amendment to cut in half
the government's proposed reduction1
in civil servants' salaries.

We Desire To Live With

Says Chancellor
Speaks Bitterly Of
French Armaments
Says Germany Suicidally

Had Great Army
BERLIN, Oct. 24.-(P)-Chancellor
Adolf Hitler pleaded with Germany
today to endorse his regime in its
efforts to win equality for Germany
abroad and domestic peace at home.
"We desire to live with all others
in peace," he asserted. "Let others
draw the consequences. We shall sign
nothing that is dishonorable. If any
nation is entitled to claim divine help
it is Germany.
"I would rather die than act dis-
honorably toward my nation. If I fail
therein send me to the gallows."
His appeal was in a 95-minute ad-
dress marking the inauguration of
the Reichstag election campaign in
preparation for the Nov. 12 plebis-
cite on the administration's foreign
His irony was bitter as he talked
of French armaments.
"We almost suicidally scraped arm-
aments," he continued. "We had one
of the greatest armies in the world,
yet we completely disarmed. The
world might have disarmed also. +
"It was mutual distrust of our vic-,
tors that compelled them to re-arm.
It is not true that other states fear3
us-that would be too much honor."
When the Nazis undertook to
"master" the ills of Germany on Jan.
30, the chancellor said, they found
room everywhere with Marxism de-]
stroying the country.
This threat, he said, was success-I
fully fought, however, and the ad-1
ministration thereupon "conducted a
war upon class war and fought for a
restoration of faith in, the nation,j

series of Choral Union Concerts.
The audience of more than 4,500
persons, composed of students, fac-

large number of visitors from other
cities, enthusiastically applauded Dr.
Koussevitzky at the conclusion of
the concert. This is the third con-

of the Choral Union series.
Dr. Charles A. Sink, president of

Because Varsity Yo-Yo Capt. Rob-

of selling his team's signals yester-
day, he will be replaced by Charles
Jewett, '34, a top-twirler of several
years' standing, according to San

Varsity's fighting squad.
"We weren't going to use the sig-

I am sure;" the dark-haired trainer

from the contest altogether, because

of organizing the house managers

last night. The plan of co-operative
