Veteran Heads Players of FiveI
Nations by One Stroke .
at Mississagua.I
Toronto, Ont., July 10.-(P-The
old master, Walter Hagen, toured
around Mississauga's layout in 68
strokes on the second round of the
Canadian open golf championship
today to blast his way into the lead
by a single stroke..
Hagen's 36-hole total of 136, rep-,

resenting a pair of 68's, was just
good enough to nose out John Far-
rel of New York, former United
States champion, who added a 68
today to his 69 of yesterday for a
total of 137.
Farrell was on the line all the
way, hitting his tee shots down the
middle of the fairways and his ap-
proaches dead to the pin. Hagen,
on the other hand, was in frequent
trouble, but saved himself by some
magnificent recoveries and his fine
work on the greens.
Back of these two leaders trailed
Percy Allis of Germany, whose 67
in the first round had given him
the lead on the field. Allis slipped
to a 71 today for a total of 138.
Tommy Armour, defending cham-
pion, put together rounds of 68 and
'72 for 140.

Ninety Cent Per Capita Increase

During June.
$298,001,558 Rise in Amount
in Use Throughout Nation
Recorded for Year.
WASHINGTON, July 10.-(A')--
The per capita circulation of money
n the United States increased nine-
ty cents during June and $1.81 in
the year ending with that month.
The Treasury said today there
was $4,819,949,520 in circulation on
June 20, which figured on a basis
of 125,007,000 population, gave a
per capita circulation of $38.56. A
month before there was $4,702,257,-
432 in circulation, which based on
a population of 124,853,000 gave a
per capita of $37.66.
Money in Use Grows.
On June 30, 1930, the per capita
circulation was $36.71, based on a
population of 123,146,000 with $4,-
521,987,962 in circulation. The
year's circulation showed that de-
spite the de ressian, there was an
increase in money in use in the
country of $298,001,558.
The highest per capita circula-
tion wa~ recorded on October 31,
1920, when it was $53,01, based on
a population of 107,491,000 with $5,-
698,214,612 in circulation. The low-
est rate was on January 1, 1879,
when it was $16.92, based on a pop-
ulation of 48,231,000 and $816,266,-
Total Over Nine Billion.
The statement showed that the
total amount of money of various
kinds in the country was $9,077,-
300,048, an increase of $295,201,784
in the month, and an increase of
$770,735,984 in the year. Of the to-
tal money there was $4,953,771,670
in gold, of which the Treasury held
Union Members Parade Before
White House; Operators
Confer With Doak.
WASHINGTON, July 10. (')-The
distressed situation in the bitumi-
nous mining industry has been
brought to the attention of the fed-
eral government by both operators
and miners.
Members of the National Miners'
union paraded in front of the White
House shortly after operators of
three states had concluded a leng-
thy conference with Secretaries La-
mont and Doak.
The operators and the chiefs of
the commerce and labor depart-
ments failed to agree on a general
coal conference of all elements of
the industry. Secretary Lamont an-
nounced later that "little could be
accomplished" at this time.
The parading miners were pre-'
vented from halting in front of the

executive mansion and banners
they carried were seized by police.
Frank Borich, secretary of the
union, however, presented to Theo-
dore Joslin, one of President Hoo-
ver's secretaries, a protest against
the conference between the two
cabinet officers and the mining
Borich handed Joslin a petition
which said the union wished to
"protest against this conference as
a conspiracy of the Hoover-Mellon
government, the operators and the
United Mine Workers of America to
break the present strikes of the
miners in Pennsylvania, West Vir-
ginia, Kentucky, and Illinois."
Although operators who attended
the conference declined to discus
the proceedings, Sec'y Lamont in a
formal statement said 'many of thf
operators held the view that little
could be accomplished of advantagE
to the public, the industry or th
workers engaged in it by the sunm-
moning of a national coal confer
ence at this time."

-Senator Robinson, of Arkansas,a
Democratic state leader, today an-
swered a challenge of Senator Wat-

leader, by announcing that "an ear- h
nest effort" will be made to re-
duce tariff rates when Congress
convenes in December.
Senator Watson last night cha- w
lenged the democratic leader to "as-
sume the leadership in a fight to d
make a serious revision of the pres- d

"I feel justified in replying," Sen- l
ator Robinson said here today,n
"that when Congress convenes anu

and economists, have tended to re-r

Reich Upheaval Feared
as Paris Demands
-America added impetus to the
world disarmament movement to-
night by wholeheartedly accept-
ing a formal invitation to attend
the League of Nations general
disarmament conference' which
s to be held next February.
On instructions of President Hoo-
ver, the American government dis-
patched a note to' the Secretary-
General of the League, indicating
full participation by the United
States and complete co-operation
with the movement.
The note was signed by acting
Secretary Castle of the State De-
partment and 'was communicated
to the League by High R. Wilson,
American minister to Switzerland.
Hans Luther in France.
PARIS, July 10. (P)-Hans Luth-
er, President of the German Reichs-
bank, spent the whole day going
back and forth between the Bank
)f France and the Finance minis-
ry seeking French participation in
a $400,000,000 loan to Germany.
For nearly three hours he talked
with Clement Moret, the gover-
nor of the Bank of France, then
he conferred with Pierre Flandin,
minister of finance, had luncheon
with a half a dozen financiers, and
wound up the day in conference
with Premier Laval.
He was as uncommunicative to-
day as he was in London yester-
day, but it was understood that he
s seeking first advances equiva-
ent to the sums by which Ger-
many's budget will be lightened
under the Hoover moratorium
amounting to about $385,000,000
which would be repaid in monthly
installments; second, he wants a
renewal of the $100,000,000 one-
month loan made by the Bank of
England, the Bank of France, the
Federal Reserve Bank of the Unit-
ed States, and the World Bank at
Basel, which falls due next Thurs-
day; third, he would like to extend
that loan and increase it by $200,-
000,000; and fourth, he is said to
seek a one or two year loan of
$400,000,000 for the gold discount
bank of Germany.
Situation Grave.
BERLIN, July 10. (I)- Official
Germany is making no attempt to
conceal the gravity of the situation
which has developed from Hans
Luther's visit to Paris ,where, ac-
cording to reports reaching here,
the French imposed political con-
ditions upon the granting of a loan
to the Reichsbank,
Chancellor Bruening' office was
a beehive today as conferences with
bankers, industrial heads, and po-
litical leaders, including U. S. Am-
bassador Sackett, followed each
other in rapid succession.
The political opposition is known
to be watching its opportunity, and
there is a feeling that only a good
excuse is needed to provoke a po-
litical upheaval.
No better excuse coUld be found,
the government is afraid, than sur-
render by Chancellor Bruening to
political pressure from France.
