Without dissent, the French Parlia-

10,000,000,000 franc ($325,000,000)
defense fund, and Great Britain, the
vastness of her armed might pro-
claimed to the world, prepared to
make concrete conciliatory gestures
to Italy and Germany.
Addressing the Chamber of 15ep-
uties, the Radical-Socialist premier
Camille Chautemps called on the na-
tion and parliament to unite and
carry French economic, financial and
military power to its highest point.
He asked the nation quickly to
over-subscribe the first 3,200,000,000-
franc ($104,000,000 loan) to be float-
ed "within' a few days" to show the
people's readiness to support military
The Senate adopted the bill without
dissent but with minor textual mod-
ifications which necessitated cham-
ber reconsideration. The lower house
promptly and unanimously approved.
Gratified, Chautemps said the ac-
tion indicated that "many billions of
francs which have been retired from
circulation for various reasons will
be invested in work and destined to
assume the security of our frontiers."
The Earl of Perth, British Ambas-
sador to Italy, left for Rome with full
instructions from Prime Minister Ne-
ville Chamberlain and Viscount Hali-
fax, the foreign secretary who suc-
ceeded Anthony Eden.
The groundwork also was laid for
parallel talks with Cermany through

vile Henderson, British Ambassador
to Germany, with Reichsfuehrer,
Adolf Hitler and German Foreign
Minister Joachim Von Ribbentrop in
At the same time Prime Minister
Chamberlan has shown that the gov-
ernment may spend even more than

Actors Charge
'Double Cross'
Of 'Stage Door'
"When 'Stage Doors' collide, pickets
So goes the war-cry around Play
Production where irate students sense
the "double-cross" in the showing of
"Stage Door" in a local theatre be-
fore the opening of the student stage
show Wednesday night.r
Two members of Play Production,
therefore, will rise up tonight in
pickets' arms against the "subversive"
action of the theatre. The two, How-
ard Johnson, '39, and Bernard Ben-
oway, '39, representing the students
of Play Production, will picket again
tomorrow night.
"Play Production'had first call on
'Stage Door,'" claims Morlye Baer,
Grad., a member of the stage cast for
the play and counsel for the plaintiff.
"When we decided to give 'Stage
Door' we found no conflict. The
movie was scheduled to arrive in Ann
Arbor several weeks following Play
Production's presentation. But the
shift in dates on the part of the
theatre, we believe, is the double-
cross, and a threat to the ligitimacy
of the stage," Baersaid.
Larry Munn, manager of the the-
atre, representing the defendant, told
the Daily last night tht the motion
picture, "Stage Door," was scheduled
to appear several times in Ann Arbor
before the Play Production presenta-
tion, but no print could be obtained
to coincide with the dates. Thus, the
picture was finally scheduled for a
showing in about two weeks from
now, he pointed out. When a Jane

Swedish Authority To Talk
On Post-War Tendencies
And Economic History
One of the outstanding scholars
of European economic history, Prof.
Eli F. Hecksher, president of the Ec-
onomics Institute of Sweden, will
give a series of five lectures on ec-
onomic history here next week under
the auspices of the University.
Professor Hecksher has been called
the greatest authority in the field of
mercantilism and has written a wide-
ly-known and standard work on that
subject. He hais made an intensive
study of Scandinavian economic con-
ditions, and his work in this field is
also a best-known source of reference.
He is a member of several Swedish
learned societies and has served on
many government commissions.
He is one of a group of scholars in
the United States this year in con-
junction with the Tercentenary Cele-
bration of the landing of the Swedish
colonists in Delaware in 1638. Mem-
bers of this delegation are now tour-
ing the United States under the spon-
sorship of the Scandinavian-Ameri-
can Foundation. Professor Hecksher
is coming here under the direct au-
spices of the history and economics
The first of the five lectures which
he will give is intended primarily for
popular interest, with the others more
specialized for persons interested in
history or economics. This first lec-
ture will be at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday in
the Natural Science Auditorium, or
the subject, "Some Post-War Ec-
onomic Tendencies."
On Wednesday and -Thursday he

will give two lectures on the subject
of "Mercantilism, Theory and Prac-
tice," in Room C, fMaven Hall,

Maintaining Constitutional
Government Is Issue Of
Strong Dissension
The conflict over the National Mo-
bilization Bill now raging between
Japan's two leading political parties
on the one hand and the Emperor
Hirohito's Cabinet on the other is
not due to a fundamental split over'
the war with China, according to,
Prof. Joseph R. Hayden of the po-
litical science department. The
partyleaders, he said, are merelytry-
ing to maintain constitutional gov-
ernment and the power of the pop-
ularly-elected Parliament.
"The Japanese people are united
in support of the Chinese venture,"
he said. "The industrial and finan-
cial interests, the big land owners,
the mass of laborers and the peasants
are all behind the Army now."
Although in 1936, when Profes-
sor Hayden was last in Manchuria,
there was talk of forcing the indus-
trialists and financiers to back Ja-

University Theatre Group
Calls ScriptInadequate
Possibilities for a sophomore mu-

Policy was denied.
Plans for the show, which had been
drawn up by a committee headed by

were "sympathetically received," but
disapproved because the script was
inadequate. The committee believed
also that not enough time remained
for getting the prodiuction ready,
