Last Summer's Record
Is Surpassed as
4,132 Enter.
Engineering, Graduate
Schools Show Big
Summer Session enrollment at
the University reached a new all-
time record yesterday when 4,132
students were reported officially
registered. The former high total
of 3,995 was reached last summer.
Yesterday's total was a gain of
321 over the corresponding day in
1930, when 3,811 were enrolled.
"We are immensely pleased by
the increased interest shown in the
session and delighted' by the very
fine character of the student body
which has come here," Dean Ed-
ward H. Kraus, of the Summer Ses-
sion, stated yesterday.
Graduate School Gains Most
Largest gains for the day were
recorded in the Graduate and engi-
neering schools.
The College of Literature, Sci-
ence, and the Arts had reached a
total of 744 at five o'clock last night.
Three hundred sixty one students
were registered in the engineering
college, and fifty seven in the archi-
tectural college. The Medical school
showed a total of 231.
Law School Enrolls 161
The Law senool enrolled 161 and
the Pharmacy school 25. Seven
students entered the dentistry
school. The Graduate school had
the largest eenrollment, 1,969.
The remaining totals were: Edu-
cation school, 317; School of Busi-
ness Administration, 29; forestry
school, 14; music school, 117; and
the Biological station, 101.
Twenty-seven holders of doctor's
degrees will attend the physics sym-
The Graduate school also includes
76 of the students at the Biological
station. If these were to be count-
ed in the enrollment of the school,
it would show a total of 2,041.
Officials Believe It Impossible
to Continue Unemployed
Aid Another Year.
DETROIT, July 1.-(JP)-A sharp
cut in Detroit's expenditures for
"doles" to families of the unem-
ployed was in prospect today as
the beginning of a new fiscal year
found some city officials frankly
stating that it will be impossible to
expend in the next 12 months a
sum similar to that paid out in the
last year.
An estimate of the cost of relief
through the public welfare depart-
ment at $20,000,000 during the last

12 months was made by William
P. Bradley, member of the city
council, who took the initiative in
the proposal to shave expenses.
The estimate was some $1,500,000
higher than any previously made.
Bradley proposed in a resolution
that the expenditures during July
be limited to $300,000 anc that the
welfare department be directed to
plan to get along with less than
that sum in August. The resolu-
tion was presented to the council
Tuesday night and five of the nine
councilmen indicated their support
for it. It went over, under council
routine. fnr cnnsideration later in

Ceremonies Climax Three Years
of Restoration Work.
BOSTON, July 1.-(P)-Restored
to her erstwhile glory by the penny
contributions of American school
children, "Old Ironsides" was re-
commissioned today almost within
sight of the spot where she first
was launched 134 years ago.
While hundreds of men, women
and children looked on, naval and
civic dignitaries attending the re-
commissioning exercises at Boston
navy yard paid glowing tributes to
the famous frigate, whose feats in
war and peace fill many pages of
American history.
Today's colorful ceremonies cli-
maxed three years of restoration
work begun in 1928 after Old Iron-
sides, officially known as the U.
S. S. Constitution, had long rested
as an all but forgotten relic at the
navy yard.

France Told Counter-Proposals
Not in Keeping With Spirit
of Hoover Settlement.
Washington Answers Fears That
Young Agreement Changes
Might Be Made.
WASHINGTON, July 1.-(P)-
America threw into the diplomatic
deadlock with France tonight a
warning that the failure of Presi-
dent Hoover's debt postponement
plan would result in a moratorium
declaration by Germany.
It was contained in a memoran-
dum communicated on instructions
of the State Department to the
French government by Ambassa-
dor Edge in Paris. It was friendly
in character, but firm in the asser-
tion that French counter-proposals
are not in keeping with the spirit
of the President's plan.
Communications Firm.
The communication showedtan
adamant stand by the United Stat-
es against two French demands, a
conciliatory attitude toward a third,
and reluctance to deal directly with
a fourth point because the United
States is not directly interested.
A French proposal that credits
established from Germany's con-
tinued payments on unconditional
annuities be available to German
industry and not to the German
government was termed incompat-
ible with the Hoover plan. A sim-
ilar objection was offered to a
French proposal that $25,000,000 of
these funds be available as credits
to Czechoslovakia, Jugoslavia and
Rumania. '
Offers Inducement.
The United States held out "the
same length of time" for repaying
lapsed war-debt' installments due1
America as inducement for the ac-
ceptance of this twenty-five year
America declined to enter a con-1
troversy over a possible revision of1
the Young plan. To French fears
that such a revision might follow
the moratorium, Washington re-
plied that France herself had pro- '
posed a Young plan revision in sug-
gesting a plan to relieve herself of
guarantee fund obligations in the
event of Germany's declaring a mo-
ratorium in the future.
Record Figure of 15,483 Is Set
by Last Summer Session
and 1930-31 Term.
Total enrollment at the Univer-
sity during the last fiscal year, in-
cluding the 1930 Summer Session
and the 1930-31 regular term,
reached a record figure of 15,483,
it was announced today from the
registrar's office. This total repre-
sents an increase of 329 students
over the figure for the previous year
which had stood as the record.
Last year's total was 15,877, but

this figure included 394 non-credit
students, a new classification in
making the compilation.
Comparing the totals for the two
regular sessions, it is shown that
10,107 students were enrolled dur-
ing the past year as against 10,-
191 in 1929-30. The decrease of 84
is considerably smaller than was
anticipated after the autumn to-
tals had been compiled November 1.
The 1930 Summer Session showed
3,995, an increase of 322 over the
3,673 of 1929. The extension group
stood at 3,486, including the non-
credit students, during the past
year as against 2.822 the previous

Repertory Players Offer Intelligent
Production of Barry's 'Paris Bound'
A Review, by Leo Kirschbaum
To the members of this very tropical community who have lost
faith in all but poetic memories of snow capped Alps, this reviewer
recommends Mr. Windt's exceedingly intelligent production of Philip
Barry's "Paris Bound." Like "Holiday" the present play, while escaping
from mere heaviness of purport contains rather quiet and sober thought
in regard to an interesting dramatic situation. Barry does not present
problem plays: what is much better is that he creates a fundamentally
provocative situation and places in it enough of truth of character

and understanding of various ac-
tion so that the finished product
is not merely a lather of smart
conservation but supplies a con-
vincing resolution to an almost un-
iversal' dilemma. In this play it is
the dilemma of love or marriage.
Barry's point of view, if I interpret
it aright, indicates, that the love ofj
two young people is beyond un-
faithfulness: that it is narrow
enough to take of the best of the
husband and wide enough to con-
tain centripetal and honest affec-
Mr. Windt has seen clearly that
the part of the husband, Jim Hut-
ton, is the crux of the above ex-
position, and consequently of the
dramatic growth and action. It is
he whose escapades, revealed un-
consciously to the totally unsus-
pecting wife in gossip at the mo-
ment of her husband's departure on
a trip, slpplies the climax of the
play and leaves the last act finely
open for the scene of the wife and
her musician lover. And it is he
who suddenly brings clarity into the
wife's attitude, finally, by forcing
his love upon her, and refusing to
listen to her tangled objections,
and confession. Mr. Allen is amaz-
ingly good in the part.
The rest of the cast is adequate.
Eugenie Chapel gives an efficient
characterization of the wife, neith-
er deep nor hysterical. Helen Carrm
as the drunken would-be mistress
of the bridegroom, in the first act,
does a difficult task well. Mildred
Todd is also excellent as the hard-
boiled sophisticate. In a part rem-
iniscent of the bottle-manufacturer
of "Holiday" Mr. Showers is his.
own capable self. Barry's gay non-
sense is always welcome-and there
is a fantastic disruption of a Bal-
let, in this play, that is as good
nonsense as it is indirectly rele-

British Sport-Playing F i e 1 d s
Will Be Exempted From '
Former Land Tax'
LONDON, July 1.-(YP)-A politi-<
cal crisis which had threatened theI
defeat of the labor government in
commons tomorrow, ended tonight9
when the government surrendered
to the liberals' demands. After re-
fusing the liberals' demands that
all sport-playing fields should be
exempt from the land tax, propos-
ed by Philip Snowden, the govern-
ment decided to move its own
amendment to the bill tomorrow.1
This was .accepted by the liberals.
Observers saw a rebuff to Snow-
den, as it was felt that the chan-
cellor would have agreed only after
strong pressure. It was hailed also
as a triumph for the liberal leader,
David Lloyd George, who was seen
as having proved that he still has
influence, despite the contention of
his political foes that he had sunk
to subservience.
Grain Stabilization Corporation
to Regulate Exchange; Plea
of Farmers Answered.

growers and traders who have been
appealing to President Hoover for

today had a promise of assistance
from the farm board.
It was that the Grain Stabiliza-

sales of wheat from July 1, 1931,
until a year from today to a cumu-
lative maximum of 5,000,000 bush-
els a month.
Sales to foreign governments or
their agencies now being consid-

as were sales for the purpose of
clearing trade channels for other

Police Battle Mobs at
Roosevelt Field as
Flyers Arrive.
Plane Girdles Earth in
Only Eight Days,
16 Hours.
Island, N. Y., July z.-P)-Wiley
Post and Harry Gatty completed
a flight around the world at 7:47
E. S. T. tonight, making the A6,-
ooo-mile journey in less than nine
days with 13 intermediate stops.
At 7:44, the white Winnie Mae
shot at terriffic speed out a sal-
mon colored sunset and a crowd'
of approximately 2,000"burst into
wild cheers. Post, the one-eyed pi-
lot, who had done all the flying on
the journey around the world, shot
his fast plane over the crowd, bank-
ed steeply, and made three leis-
urely circles over the field, select-
ing the best possible place for the
When he saw where the crowd
was placed, held in by 150 police-
men, Gatty dropped his white
wings and slid to within a few feet
above the ground. Straightening
out then, he dropped the big plane
gently onto the ground, facing
away from the crowd so there would
not be the slightest possibility of
injuring any of the over-enthusias-
tic welcomers.
Take Under.Nine Days.
Gatty and Post completed the
world flight in 8 days, 15 hours, and
51 minutes.
Their actual flying time in the
air Was only 4 days, 10 hours, and
8 minutes.
As soon as the plane stopped roll-
ing, the flyers climbed from the
cabin and entered a waiting auto-
mobile which carried them half a
mile across the field to the Admin-
istration building.
As they left the automobile, the
crowd cheered again and attempted
to' break through the police line,
but were largely unsuccessful.
Friends and admirers of the flyers
gathered them up and carried them
the last stage on their shoulders
as flashlights boomed in the fall-
ing dusk.
Fights Are Numerous.
Suddenly the police line gave way
and the field became a bedlam with
excitement ruling supreme; numer-
ous fist fights began' while police,
with nightsticks in hand, attempted
to force a way for the flyers.
The flyers were dragged back into
an automobile which was immedi-
ately 'surrounded so closely by the
crowd that it was entirely impos-
sible for police to break a passage
for them. At the last moment, au-
tomobiles began to pour into the
field, disgorging hundreds of per-
sons who wanted to see the flyers
and were willing to fight for the
chance. Half a hundred photogra-
phers took full advantage of the
jam, and the air became thick with
flashlight smoke.
Interviews Postponed.

It had been arranged in advance
for the flyers to be taken to a
hangar for an interview as soon as
they left their ship, but their own
weariness and the unexpected stress
of the popular welcome apparently
caused them to change their minds.
As soon as police were able to force
a passage through the crowd, the
big car bearing Post and Gatty and
the former's wife 'drove rapidly
from the field under a heavy es-
cort of motorcycle policemen. Mrs.
Gatty, who was flying from the
West to greet her husband, had not
vet arrived when the Winnie Mae
