GENVEA, May 17.-(UP)-Great
Britain called on the world today to

do to smash the war in its own back-

League of Nations to cable 17 nations
at once and ask them to cease ship-

Pledge Support
Support of the British move was
immediately pledged by the represen-
tatives of France, Italy, Spain, Ar-
gentina, Australia and Czechoslovakia.
Hugh R. Wilson, United States min-
ister to Switzerland and American ob-
server at the League of Nations, said
he would ask instructions from Wash-
ington. League officials said they un-
derstood Capt. Eden was encouraged
to take the initiative here because of
the efforts for peace of Cordell Hull,
the United States secretary of state,
at Montevideo.
Furthermore, they pointed out,;the
United States constantly since 1929
has led efforts to bring about amity

MADRID, May 17. - 0) -A group
of 10 Smith College students and sev-
eral other Americans intending to
visit France were refused visas by the
French consul today unless they
cabled at their own expenses for cer-
tificates of good conduct from the
French consuls in the districts of their
American residence.
The young women college students
have been visiting in Madrid, and the
others of the group are temporary res-
idents here. They all planned the trip
en route back to America.
An appeal was taken by the college
girls to Custis Jordan, United States
Jordan said he could not under-
stand the French consul's procedure.
"I am wiring to Paris for further in-
formation," he said.
The French consul, Manuel Neville,
declared he was merely applying reg-
ulations "existing folssome time but
not always in force."
"The Americans should have ob-
tained visas from the consuls in their
home districts when beginning the
journey," he said. "Since they have
not done that, they must communi-
cate with the consuls at their own ex-
pense, to obtain the required character

Instructed By Sea Lords
To Reject Any Proposal
Aside FromEquality
YOKOHAMA, Japan, May 17. -
WP) - Prince Fumimaro Konoye sailed
for the United States today, ready to
inform American officials that Japan
at the 1935 naval conference will de-
mand "equal rights in national de-
fense" and abandonment of the pres-
ent ratio method of naval limitation.
The prince was given last minute
instructions, a high authority re-
vealed, at a breakfast with Japan's
naval war lords in Tokyo shortly be-
forehis departure by train for Yoko-
The youthful political leader, only
recently installed as president of the
House of Peers, sailed on the liner
Asama Maru bound for San Fran-
cisco. United States Ambassador Jo,.
seph C. Grew saw him off in Tokyo.
Whether "equal rights" means ac-
tual tonnage parity or whether Japan
will be satisfied with a general Anglo-
American admission her equal rank-
ing as a naval power remains to be
decided in a series of high state coun-
cils in coming months.
The naval leaders told Prince Kon-
oye that Japan is unwilling for the
1935 conference to break down, but
'will reject any agreement which she
believes fails to remove all appre-
hension concerning the empire's se-
Japan has indicated that she will
seek naval parity with Great Britain
and the United States at the confer-
ence and Prince Konoye is expected to
sound out American sentiment on
naval affairs.

Slosson Speaks
Addressing the yesterday afternoon
session on "Mussolini: Emissary of
Peace or War?", Prof. Preston W.
Slosson of the history department
traced trends of Fascism and dis-
cussed the difference between the
Italian dictator and Hitler in Ger-
"Mussolini," he said, "has two ad-
vantages: a touch of humor, which is
a priceless asset for any dictator, and
a little more intelligence than Hit-
ler. Hitler, however, is the better
orator - in fact he is said by many
to be the greatest orator of modern
In the opinion of Professor Slos-
son, "If Germany were to attack
France with an army the size of
France's, Germany would win on ac-
count of her superior natural re-
sources. If France were to attack
Italy with an army the size of Italy's,
France would win on account of her
superior natural resources." It is
due to this factor that Professor Slos-
son called Hitler in Germany more
potential than Mussolini in Italy.
"Modern warfare," he said, "is
merely a matter of physics and chem-
istry on a large scale."
Traces Nazi Movement
Tracing other Fascist, or national,
movements such as the Nazi develop-
ment in Germany, Dr. Slosson de-
clared they appealed chiefly to youth,
and that they were essentially a pro-
test of youth.
Following this, Robert Henderson,
director of the Dramatic Season,
spoke on "Henrik Ibsen, the Man and
His Plays." He said he classed Ib-
sen as a great dramatist along witht

Speak Before
istitute Members
Sophocles, Shakespeare, Tchekhoff,
and Shaw. Ibsen's "Wild Ducks,"
Mr. Henderson promised, he would
bring to Ann Arbor for next year's
Dramatic Season.
"Everyone loves the theatre," he
said. "It is a primitive emotion. And
I think that the much maligned men
students here in the University make
marvelous audiences - all Ann Ar-
bor audiences in fact are understand-
ing - so quick to pick up the points."
Touching on Shakespeare, Mr.
Henderson declared, "It is not enough
to produce Shakespeare as it was pro-
duced in the age of Elizabeth." The
scenery, the setting, and the back-
ground must be improved, he said.
European Actors Better
"European actors are better as a
rule than American actors," he stated.
In his opinion, Ibsen and Shaw "are
two persons who know their theatre
most thoroughly." Shaw, in particu-
lar, was praised by the director of the
Dramatic Season.
Mr. Henderson then introduced
Miss Elizabeth Risdon, noted actress,
who is appearing here in "The Bron-
tes." Miss Risdon said that "the one
great change in the theatre is the
change in the attitude of actors with
regard to the public. Formerly we
were supposed to keep away from the
public while off the stage, as if we
might disillusion them," she admit-
ted. "Now we are glad to meet and
know those for whom we perform."
Besides Professor Slosson and Mr.
Henderson, the Thursday meeting
of the Institute also heard a lecture
on "Sculpture" by Prof. Avard Fair-
banks of the fine artsndepartment,
and "What Is the Meaning of the
Revalued Dollar?" by Prof. Leonard
