In Promoting Peace;
DENVER, Oct. 7.-UP)-The Amer-
ican Federation of Labor declared
economic war on Japan today, with
delegations to' the Federation's con-
vention shouting their approval of a
boycott on Japanese goods.
Answering a boycott appeal from
British organized labor, the delegates
applauded and cheered President Wil-
liam Green's call for a favorable reply.
Formal action on a boycott resolu-
tion will be taken later, but the dele-
gates left no doubt that they would
adopt it.
Green read the cablegram asking
boycott support just after J. C. Little,
fraternal delegate from the British
Trades Congress, appealed to the con-
vention to help promote peace by pro-
posing "concerted action" of all dem-
ocratic nations.
"The mere threat of such a com-
bination would be sufficient to save
the world for democracy and estab-
lish for posterity a system of collective
security," Little declared.

Denunciation Of Japanese
Aggression, Roosevelt's
Talk Are Main Factors
By JACK DAVIS
Startling action by the United
States in the past three days touched
off by President Roosevelt's Chicago
speech and climaxed by the state
department's denunciation of Japan-
ese aggression seems to mark the end
of America's new-found policy of iso-
lation, Prof. C.'F. Remer of the ec-
onomics department prophesied yes-
terday.
Events in the Far East forced the
United States to choose between two
fundamentally different war policies,
he pointed out. "Under the Wash-
ington treaty we are pledged to col-
lective action to maintain peace in
China.
"Yet by our isolation policy strict
neutrality is mandatory in all wars
irrespective of circumstances.

The Treasury disclosed today that it

working balance to pay government
expenses during October and Novem-

by additional borrowing.
Secretary Morgenthau has said in
the past that the cash balance was

because of unsettled conditions

President Ruthven. and two other'
prominent educators of the country,

vard University and President Ernest
M. Hopkins of Dartmouth College,
will take leading parts in the inaug-
uration of Dr. Edmund Ezra Day
as president of Cornell University
today.
President Ruthven will speak at the
inaugural services on "Tax Supported
Universities," President Conant will
talk on "The Endowed University,"
and President Hopkins wiill address

Matriculating as an undergraduate
and later as a graduate student at

Dartmouth College, Dr. Day became
an instructor in economics at Har-
vard University, where he also re-
ceived the degree of Doctor of Philos-
ophy and finally became a professor.,
The University of Michigan first
claimed him as professor of economics
in 1923. Later he was made the first
Dean of the School of Business Ad-
ministration, a position once held by
President Ruthven.
In 1928, Dr. Day went with the
Rockefeller Foundation as Director
for the Social Sciences and held that
position until he was named presi-
dent of Cornell University late last,
spring.
President Ruthven, President Con-

ant and President Hopkins will march
with him in the academic procession
leading to his induction as the fifth
president of Cornell University.
Presidents- of 35 other universities
and colleges of the United States and
Canada will join delegates from
learned societies and other educa-
tional organizations, representatives
of 132 Cornell clubs, class secretaries,;
directors of the Cornell Alumni Cor-
poration, the Federation of Cornell
Women's Clubs and the executive
committee of the Cornellian Council

SALAMANCA, Spain. Oct. 7.-(-1P)-
A Spanish Insurgent court martial
decreed death by shooting today for
Harold E. Dahl, American aviator,
but the sentence was reprieved im-
mediately.
The 28-year-old Champaign, Ill.,
flier who was shot down by Insur-
gents while he fought for the Spanish
government will be held in jail for
further orders.
Insurgent Generalissimo Francisco
Franco, who granted the reprieve for
Dahl and three Russian airmen, was
expected to decide within two days
whether he will free the prisoners
outright or negotiate their exchange
for fliers held by the Government.
Dahl was tried Tuesday for "rebel-

the trial his counsel insisted Dahl

"Inevitably, it seems to me, partici-
pation in this conference will mean
the end of even such lip service as
is now being rendered to neutrality.
This is the fault that has been ap-
parent in neutrality proposals from'
the beginning.
President Roosevelt emphasized
such reasoning in his Chicago speech
as he forcefully declared a policy of
isolation was not sufficient in dealing
with today's crises. "A state of in-,
ternational anarchy and instability
exists from which there is no escape
by mere isolation or neutrality," he.

SHANGHAI, Oct. 8.-(Friday)-P)
-The thunder of war burst on the
doorstep of Shanghai's foreign settle-
ments early today when Japanese,
warships engaged in a duel with Chi-
nese artillery batteries across the
Whangpoo River in Pootung.
/ The dawn bombardment, the sever-
est the conflict has produced, shook
the city. Concussions of the heavy
ordnance shattered windows in scores
of buildings along the international
section.
Mass bombing raids of Japanese
warplanes earlier were reported to
have killed more than 500 Chinese
civilians in -the rich Southern prov-
ince of Kwantung.
These encounters marked the open-
ing of the fourth month of the unde-
clared war which the United States
government and the League of Na-
tions formally have characterized as
a Japanese violation of the Nine-
Power Treaty safeguarding China
against armed invasion.
Under black, rain-laden skies the
deep-voiced guns of the Japanese
warships, anchored in the Whangpoo
downstream from the mouth of Soo-
chow Creek, began to hurl shells into
?ootung, once a rich industrial center.

TOKYO, Oct. 7.--P-The Jap-
anese Foreign Office was quoted today
as declaring that no matter what de-
cision a nine-power conference may
make, the Japanese Empire's "funda-
mental policy will remain un-
changed.
The Domei (Japanese) News Agen-
cy reported that the Foreign Office
spokesman declared "Japan is con-
fident she will prove equal to the
contingency, nq matter what meas-
ures the powers take- against her."
.Firm Policy Declared
Domei represented the Foreign Of-
fice as feeling certain, in view of the
United States Department of State's
disapproval of Japan's actions in
China, that signatories of the Nine-
Power Treaty would be called into
session by the League of Nations.
Japan is one of the signatories of
this treaty which, among other
things, binds the signers to respect
the sovereignty of China. Neverthe-
less, the Foreign Office made it clear
that Japan would not participate in
any meeting of the treaty powers.
"No matter what decision such a
conference should take," Dome ut-
ed Foreign Office officials as saying
"Whether moral pressure, concrete
measures or materialrsanction
against Japan, the Empire's funda-
mentaldpolicy will remain un-
changed."
Japan 'Bewildered'
Japanese statesmen were described
as "surprised and bewildered" at
President Roosevelt's declarations .in
Chicago concerning' "concerted ac-
tion" against aggressor nations and
the subsequent State Department
condemnation of Japan.
"We had been certain prior to this
that the United States understood the
situation better than any other coun-
try in the world," a high ranking
statesman said as Japanese officials
were called into emergency session
at the Foreign Office to discuss the
news from Washington.
"We felt that the American public
was completely enlightened and was
;raditionally neutral. We complete-
ly fail to understand the American
action, which is bound to make a very
bad impression on the Japanese
public."
U. S! To Cooperate
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7.- 0-The
United States government prepared
tonight to participate in a momentous
nine-power conference on possible
measures to halt the Chinese-Japan-
ese War.
Following up speedily the State De-
partment's denunciation of Japan for
its invasion of China, Secretary Hull
made it clear that America intends to
accept an expected invitation to meet
other signatories of the nine-power
treaty, which guarantees China's sov-
ereignty.
The conference was suggested by
the League of Nations Assembly, with
which the United States has aligned
itself firmly in efforts to stop hos-
tilities in the Orient.
Some high officials in Geneva and
London suggested that the conference
be in Washington-birthplace and
depository for the nine-power pact.
Secretary Hull and his aides would
give no hint, however, as to this gov-
