PARIS, Jan. 25.-(A')-Premier Ca-
mille Chautemnps today threatened to

if the chamber of deputies created a

ga'te the Bayonne pawnshop scandal.
The scandal itself, resulting from
the operations of Serge Stavisky, who
muleted the French public of $40,000-

arrest, was the signal for numerous
mob demonstrations which have oc-
curred in Paris throughout the last

scandal possible but agreed only to

LONDON, Jan. 25.-(P)--Snarled
and crippled traffic under a black
fog, the worst in years, found thou-
sands of Londonaires marooned in
bus and rail stations early today
after a night of mishaps which
caused four deaths. Scores were in-
Many train schedules were can-
celled entirely. Thousands of pass-
engers were held at various stations.
Omnibus and train service was
largely suspended. One tram got
lost. Labeled Streatham Common,
it pulled into Streatham Hill, a mile
off the route.
Taxis refused fares and hugged
the curbs. Private cars were stalled
all over London. Collisions were nu-
merous. In one traffic snarl nine
automobiles and in another seven of
them became inextricably tangled.
The great fog blanket extended
from Doncaster in the north to Sus-
sex and East Engia, and was accom-
panied by temperatures just below
freezing. Southwestern England was
clear and bright.
