WASHINGTON, Nov. 29.-(/P)-
Anxiety lest China's open door be
slammed shut has prompted the State
Department to demand that Japan
talk things over with the United
States before altering the maritime
customs service of China.
The move, announced by Sec. Cor-
dell Hull today re-aroused much
official apprehension here that the
reported intention of Japai to seize
control of the customs might have
the effect of restricting the commerce,
of non-Japanese nations.
Similar action has been taken by
Great Britain. The two nations, act-
ing independently but keeping each!
other closely informed of their move-
ments, presented their virtual de-
mands yesterday in formal notes to
the Japanese foreign office.
T h e American representations,
stressing in vigorous written phrases

an oral communication by the Ameri-
can Ambassador to Tokyo, expressed
strong opposition to any action cal-
culated to disturb the integrity of the
customs setup. I

Low Building

Seeks To Provide Building
Boom By Checking High
Labor, Material Rates
Cut First-Payments
For FHA, He Says
WASHINGTON, Nov. 29.-(A')-
President Roosevelt asked Congress
to cut the cost of home building as an
anti-depression measure today-and
Congress quickly showed a liking for
the proposal.
In a special message, the chief ex-
ecutive suggested amendments to the
Federal Housing Act which, he said,
would halve the down payment on
small homes and reduce the financing
charges on them, as well as on more
ambitious structures.
He proposed, also, changes in the
law to stimulate large scale construc-
tion of houses for sale and houses for
rent, with a $50,000,000 allocation
from the Reconstruction Finance,
Corporation to give the movementi
As a supplementary project, Mr.
Roosevelt announced he would hold
conferences with industry, union of-
ficials and financiers directed at re-
ducing the cost of labor and of
building materials. He blamed the
high cost of these items for the con-
tinuing lag in construction and called
the latter "one of the principal rea-
sons" for the current business re-
He said he hoped the total effect of
this program, one of several methods
he has chosen for combatting the
slump, would be a boom in residen-
tial construction spreading economic
benefits in many directions.
"The long continued lag in build-
ing is a drag on all industry and
trade," the message said. "This pre-
sents an urgent problem which is the
common concern of industry, labor
and government. All business needs
the infusion of orders and the diffu-
sion of purchasing power that come
when building is thriving."
In addition to the liped-for hous-
ing boom, the President is obviously
counting on other lines of action to
halt the depression: tax revision, an
immediate purchase of some $245,-
000,C00 worth of Government sup-$
plies, a reduction in Federal alloca-
tions for road building and a truce
with the utilities that will encourage
them to go ahead with "ong delayed
construction programs running into
the billions.

Tear Gas Bomb
Hits Discordant
Note At Recital
Tear gas again visited Ann Arbor,
but this time under more distin-
guishedmcircumstances, when a tear
gas bomb burst last night in Section
5 of Hill Auditorium just as Fritz
Kreisler finished the first number of
his scheduled recital.
The applause was dying out when a
loud explosion occurred and blue-
gray smoke began to rise between
seats 6 and 8, row 0, in the western
side of the packed auditorium.
The fumes spread rapidly and per-
sons for several rows on either side of
Row 0 rushed for exits. The audi-
ence remained comparatively quiet
and Mr. Kreisler did not leave the
stage. Several suffered. ill effects
from the gas and were unable to re-
turn to the auditorium.
An usher located a large blue foun-
tain-pen-like tear gas bomb and
turned it in to Edward Warren, head
usher of Hill Auditorium, who would
make no statement. They were un-
able to locate the person who threw
the bomb.
Mr. Kreisler was inclined to treat
the whole affair as a prank. "It was
probably some freshman trick," he
said laughingly. "I have had many
bombs burst in my presence but none
in such a spirit of fun."
Dr. Charles. A. Sink, president of1
tle School of Music, stated that noth-
ing of the kind had ever happened be-
fore in Hill Auditorium. Police were
not called and no explanation was ad-

The Deer Seem All Right
But Hunters Need Aid
State Conservation Director P. J.
Hoffmaster ordered an irtvestigation
Monday to determine the cause for a
sharp increase in fatalities among
deer hunters during the season which
ends today.
With one day to go, the Con3erva-
tion department recorded 11 deaths
from gunfire in the woods since the
season opened Nov. 15. A twelfth fa-
tality, a hunter who tripped over his
gun and was killed at his home as
he prepared to go deer hunting, was
not included in the department's
records. At least a dozen hunters
were wounded.

Premiers Of Two Nations
Agree Time To Concede
Has Not Yet Arrived
Organize Program

To Proinote Peace
LONDON, Nov. 29.-(IP)-The pre-
miers and foreign ministers of Britain
and France today decided in a "suc-
cessful" eight hour discussion of ma-
jor world problems they were not yet
ready to grant any German political
or territorial demands.
French Premier Camille Chau-
temps said the British and French
ministers were in "full solidarity" -in
their search for peace. "We made a
tour of the world," he said as he left
Prime Minister Neville Chamber-
lain's official residence.
Diplomats Pleased
The diplomats appeared pleased
with their first day's work and au-
thorized this official five point ac-
count of the conference:
1. France fully understood the lim-
ited scope of Lord Halifax' explora-
tory talk with Reichsfuehrer Adolf
Hitler and agreed with Britain it ful-
filled its purpose;
2. The ministers discussed the co-
lonial question in all its aspects and
agreed it required further examina-
3. Both governments expressed
themselves as concerned for preserva-
tion of peace in central Europe and
discussed Germany's ambitions there;
4. They also expressed their appre-
ciation of the "seriousness" of the
Chinese-Japanese war and their
"need for vigilance" to safeguard
their interests;
5. They pronounced non-interven-
tion the right policy in the Spanish
civil war.
The ministers were understood to
have dwelt seriously on French For-
eign Minister Yvon Delbos' coming
tour of France's eastern and central
European allies.
Informed sources said the two na-
tions had declared their desire to
cooperate with all nations but needed
a great deal more preparation before
a detailed plan could be drafted.
The premiers and foreign ministers
of the two powers, which-with the
United States-largely dictated a new
map for Europe after the World War,
sat through the first of two days of
talks which observers in both Lon-
don and Paris described as among the
most important since the war ended.
U.S. To Be Informed
While the United States took no
part in the conference. It was under-
stood Washington later would be in-

thony Eden, Chautemps and Foreign
Minister Yvon Delbos, the chances for
settlement of Europe's problems were
held generally brighter than in sev-
eral months. The conflict between

ominous shadow.
But equally important in the re-
view of the entire post war era were
the issues raised by a Germany reborn
under Hitelr-her claims to colonies
and demands for special rights in
central and eastern Europe. Of only
slightly less importance was the
Spanish Civil War and its attendant
threat to Mediterranean security.
Behind the Anglo-French meeting,
was believed to be a determined ef-
fort by Chamberlain to find some
method of European settlement that
would lead to arms limitation.
Britain, spending vast sums on an
armament race from which she would
like to withdraw but cannot, has
shown recently a more conciliatory
attitude toward German demands.
Like France, however, Britain was in-
sistent any concessions be coupled
