music school yesterday, bringing
the total to 103. The literary col-
lege added 42, making a total of
721. The education school closed

Police, Pepper Solve
Stolen Fish Mystery
NORTHBROOK, Ill., June 30.
(A)-Charles Sutherland took his
troubles to the police Monday
and although it was too late for
relief he had the satisfaction of
knowing what happened.
"I haven't an enemy in the
world," Sutherland said when he
called police to help him solve
the mystery of his five missing
goldfish. "In addition my cat is
"That's a clew," said the in-
vestigating officer. "Let's have
the cat and some pepper." Both

National Assembly Will Consider
Abolishment of Titles,
MADRID, June 30. (P)-A pro-
posed constitution providing for un-
iversal suffrage, religious freedom
and abolition of titles of nobility
will be submitted to the newly-elec-
ted national assembly when it con-
venes July 14.
The preliminary draft, as formu-
lated by a government commission,
first will be passed on by the cab-
inet, possibly this week.
It stipulates that women shall be
allowed to participate for the first
time in the election of deputies,
that all creeds will be allowed re-
ligious freedom and that the an-
cient distinctions of aristocracy
shall be no more. The Catholic
church would become a "corpora-
tion" and the state would have no
official religion.
Supreme authority would be vest-
ed in the republican government in
Madrid, although the provinces
might organize for local adminis-
trative purposes. The president
would be elected for a term of six
years by a majority of the senate
and lower house in joint session.
The senate would be made up of
240 members chosen equally among
the "cultural, industrial and labor
entities," and the lower house would
consist of 470 deputies elected by
popular suffrage.

ATLANTA, June 30-(P)-Resig-
nation of office-holders who say
prohibition cannot be enforced is
demanded by Georgia dry leaders
and a group of their followers.
Resolutions expressing full faith

Harris Armor, W. C. T. U. work-
er, Atticus Webb, superintendent of
the Texas Anti-Saloon league, and

that prohibition is a "failure" and
the announcement of Chief of Po-
lice James Beavers that Atlanta
could not hire enough policemen
to stop bootlegging.

Cast for Paris Bound' Includes
Many Actors Prominent in
Campus Dramatics.
Harry Allen, Eugenie Chapel
Have Chief Roles in Brilliant
Modern Comedy.
"Paris Bound," Philip Barry's bril-
liant high comedy, will open to-
night in the Lydia Mendelssohn
theatre as the first production of
the Michigan Repertory players,
who are entering their third sea-
son on campus. The play will be
presented tonight and Thursday,
Friday, and Saturday nights.
Barry, considered one of Ameri-
ca's most important dramatists, is
the author of "Holiday," with which
the Repertory players opened last
summer. He is said to combine the
two sides of modern American dra-
ma: the ability to deal seriously
and straightforwardly with modern
problems and the ability to write
whimsical, disarming chatter of
high comedy.
Windt Directs.
Tonight's production is under the
direction of Valentine B. Windt, for
three years head of the Play Pro-
duction department.
The cast for "Paris Bound" in-
cludes many students prominent in
former campus productions. The
players are: Harry R. Allen, who
had the leading role in "The
Guardsman"; Eugenie Chapel, lead-
ing woman in "Rebound"; Kathryn
Kratz, the lead player in Mimes'
production of "The Perfect Alibi";
Mary Power, who appeared in many
of the plays last summer; Mildred
Todd, prominent for her work in
character parts; Paul Showers, who
played the comedy lead in "Holi-
day;" Helen Carrm, who played op-
posite him in the production; Ed-
ward Fitzgerald, prominent in "The
Criminal Code;" and Frances
Cast Announced.
The remaining plays for the sum-
mer term will be, in the order
named: Moliere's "Don Juan"; "Lil-
iom" by Ferenc Molnar; "Love and
Chance" by Marivaux; Susan Glas-
pell's Pulitzer prize play, "Alison's
House"; W. Somerset Maugham's
"The Circle"; and an original play
by Thomas Wood Stevens and Wil-
liam Byron, "I Confess," which will
be produced on Broadway next win-
Five North China Leaders Agree
to Support Revolution, But
Want Financial Banking.
HONG KONG, June 30. -(P)-
Agents bearing credentials to the
anti-Nanking revolutionary govern-
ment at Canton from five North
China leaders, including Feng Yu-
Hsiang, former "Christian" gene-
ral, and Yen Hsi-Shan, governor of
Shansi province, reached the

Kwangtung capital today.
They announced promises of mil-
itary support in the insurgents'
campaign against President Chiang
Kai Shek's Nationalist government,
provided the Canton government
furnishes financial backing.
The proposals struck close to the
root of the present South China
situation, for the greatest prob-
lem encountered by the Cantonese
government in its opposition to
Nanking has been that of raising
funds for military defense, let alone
Reports here today said com-
manders of Cantonese forces in Ki-
angsi province had refused to fol-

proposed advance against the in-

alists and insurgents since he was
ousted from the governorship,
Chen finally has cast his lot defi-

British Economist Says Failure
of Moratorium Conference
Would Be Dangerous.
Italy Informs Her Debtors That
Installments Due July 1
Need Not Be Paid.
(By Associated Press)
The status of negotiations at Pa-
ris between Secretary Mellon and
Premier Laval is described by high
administration authorities at Wash-
ington as serious, but the American
government is not discouraged and
the negotiations are to be contin-
By a vote of 197 to 5 the French
senate upheld Premier Laval's
course in his negotiations with Sec-
retary Mellon and gave him a free
hand to continue these negotia-
tions along the lines he has thus
far pursued. The Premier describ-
ed the present situation as "The
most delicate since the war."
Germany Watches.
Germany, convinced that she
should not interfere, remains on
the sidelines, watching what 'she
has come to regard as a duel be-
tween President Hoover and Pre-
mier Laval.
Great Britain also was watching
and Sir Josiah Stamp, one of the
nation's greatest economists, said
that if anything should happen to
impair the Hoover plan, the situa-
tion would be worse than if the plan
had never been offered.
Inaugurates Plan.
Italy, meanwhile, has put the
plan into tentative operation with-
out waiting for the outcome at
Paris. She notified her debtor na-
tions that they will not be required
to pay installments July 1, at the
same time informing her creditors
that she is ready to pay her own
obligations when they fall due.

turned today upon Senator Fess's
announcement that he expects to
remain "temporary" chairman of
the Republican national committee

EDMONTON, Alberta, June
30. tm)--Wiley Post and Harold
Gatty, the glbe girdling Ameri-

a 1,450 mile flight from Fairbanks,
A drenched crowd of several
thousand broke police lines and
sped toward the far side of the
field, about 1,000 yards from the
hangar, where the "Winnie Mae"
came to rest.
Having traversed approximately
13,500 miles of their 16,000 mile
route, the airmen appeared in need
of rest and decided to remain un-

for the United States.

They may stop at Cleveland or
Detroit or may proceed direct to
New York.
They were not too tired, however,
to supervise closely the operation
of a tractor which was required to
tow their plane through ankle deep
mud to shelter. The fliers also de-
clined to enter a limousine to car-
ry them to a hotel until their plane
was berthed.
The pair left Fairbanks at 3:24
a. m. or 8:24 a. m., E. S. T., today,
fighting rain and murky skies to
complete the Edmonton leg in ap-
proximately 10 hours.
Glad to be Near Home.
"We're very glad to be near home
again where we don't have to make
signs," said Gatty as radio an-
nouncers, photographers, and news-
papermen gathered around the avi-
ators. "Yes, and where we don't
have to eat brown bread," inter-
posed Post.
The mayor of Edmonton and Ver-
non Smith, minister of railways and
telephones of Alberta, extended an
official welcome to the fliers at the

I'm O. K.," said Post of the flight.
