Student Confcrencc Recommends
Reciprocity .Basis in Peace Pacts

Revision of the peace treaties on
a basis of reciprocity as a necessary
preliminary to any closer co-opera-
tion between the European powers
was advocated in one of a series of
resolutions made public yesterday
by the British and American Stu-
dents Conference on International
Affairs meeting here.
The Conference approved the
Austro-German customs union but
opposed any form of general Euro-
pean union inconsistent with the
purposes and methods of the
League of Nations. Any planatend-
ing to weaken the League was op-
Complete control of raw materials
by international boards was ad-
vocated in a resolution which point-
ed out a belief that development
along international lines would be
a better method of reaching world
organization than building up of
regional organizations.
The Monroe doctrine and any
form of pan-American union were
condemned by the conference as
inconsistent with the purposes and
methods of the League.
"The conference firmly believes

that the treaty for the renuncia-
tion of war can best be served by
the accession of the United States
to the League," according to the
preamble of a report accepted in
the final sessions.
"Particular emphasis should be
laid on the development of methods
of peaceful procedure for the pre-
vention of hostilities, rather than
on measures to be taken after hos-
tilities have brokn out," it was said
in the resolution.
Measures recommended in case
of a violation of the pact included
concentration of all agencies of
public opinion against the viola-
tor, co-operation in preventing in-
tercourse with the violator, and co-
operation in military measures to
preserve the pact.
Entrance of the United States
into the World court was recom-
mended in another resolution as
a step towards world security. The
resolution also recommended that
the United States express its will-
ingness to co-operate in economic
sanctions against a state considered
an aggressor by the council.

- (P) - At the request of Col.
Charles A. Lindbergh, the Danish
government has deposited a supply
of Gasoline at Godthaab on the
western coast of Greenland for his
forthcoming flight to the far east.

on an easterly trip to the orient via
the north Atlantic and Europe or
whether he was planning to use it
for the final stages of a westerly

Second Presentation in America
to Be Given Here; Mercier
Directs Production.
"Love and Chance" by Marivaux,
will open as the fourth production
of the Summer Repertory players
next Wednesday, and will run the
remainder of the week.
The play is considered by some
critics as the best to come from
the pen of the noted French drama-
tist. It deals with court life in the
eighteenth century.
The present production, it was
announced, is the second presenta-
tion of the play in America. It has
been staged under the direction of
Jean Mercier, guest director of the
Repertory players.
M. Mercier, who was formerly a
member of the staff of the Theatre
du Vieux Columbier in Paris, also
mounted the first production of
"Love and Chance" in this country,
at the Cornish school of Seattle
last winter.
Three more plays are scheduled
for presentation by the players
this summer. "Allison's House,"
Susan Glaspel's Pulitzer prize play,
will open week after next under
the direction of Thomas Wood
Stevens, and will be followed by W.
Somerset Maugham's "The Circle,"
staged by Director Valentine B.
Windt, of Play Production. The
closing play has not yet been de-
cided upon.

Finishes Flight in 8 Hours and
40 Minutes, According to
Unofficial Record.
Fog Blanket Impedes First Part
of Journey; Blind Flying
Instruments Used.
HAVANA, July 18.-()-What
was declared by aviation officials
to be the fastest non-stop flight
from New York to Havana was.
made today by James Goodwin
Hall, former army flyer, when ac-
cording to his timing he spanned
the long stretch in eight hours and
thirty-five minutes.
According to the flier's record, he
took off at Roosevelt field at 4:23
o'clock this morning. Unofficial
figures made the take-off from
New York at 4:38, which would
make the total elapsed time eight
hours, 40 minutes.
Lands at Wrong Field.
Through error Hall landed his
Lockheed-Altair monoplane at Co-
lumbia airport instead of at Curtis
airport, official government field
at Renta, Boyers. Officials there
clocked his arrival at 1:18 eastern
standard time, which would mean
that he had beaten Captain Frank
M. Hawks' time of nine hours, 21
minutes, by 46 minutes on the basis
of a take-off at 4:43 a.m.
Encounters Fog.
Hall said he had encountered fog
during the first few hours of the
flight and was forced to fly at 500
feet. Later it cleared and he climb-
ed to 5000 feet, remaining at that
altitude the remainder of the trip.
His blind flying instruments, espec-
ially his artificial horizon, came
in handy when cutting through the
fog blanket at the outset of the
flight. His 450 h.p. motor, develop-
ing 550 h.p. at high altitude be-
cause of a special super-charger,
functioning perfectly, he said.

day by Acting Chairman Croxton
of the president's emergency com-

PARIS, July 18-(A)--The ob-
stacles in the way of French par-
ticipation in the conference of
major statesmen to be held' in
London Monday were sWept
away today in conversations be-
tween the heads of the French
and German governments.
Premier Laval decided after
discussing the German crisis with
Chancellor Bruening and Foreign
Minister Curtius that his separate
negotiations with Germany were
sufficiently advanced to remove
the French objections to taking pait
in the London meeting.
The French decision remained in
doubt until a communique was is-
sued at the conclusion of the
Franco-German conversation, and
even then it was set forth indirect-
ly in connection with a reference to
a meeting tomorrow of the repre-
sentatives of the powers that will
be present at the British capital.

for M. Laval to refuse to go to Lon-

The Germans made it clear they
were in Paris on their way to Lon-
don and the departure of Arthur.
Henderson, British foreign secre-
tary, already has been scheduled
for tomorrow. This virtually puts
M. Laval in the position of making
the best of whatever understand-
ing he could get from the Germans.
There was an evident desire on
both sides to avoid any clashes in
Paris over prickling political ques-
tions, such as the guarantee of the
Polish frontier and Austro-German
political union. But the veiled re-
ferences to these problems were un-
derstood by all participants so the

They left the meeting with grave
faces and shortly afterward it was
announced they would confer with
Secretary Stimson, Secretary Mel-
lon and Ambassador Edge, at the
American embassy tonight.
An offiicial communique issued by
Premier Laval said the chancellor
had outlined Germany's financial
situation and that Pierre Flandin,
French finance minister, had of-
fered suggestions as to methods by
which Germany may obtain finan-
cial aid.
The discussion, said the com-
munique, was "frank and cordial."
s It was the, first time a German
chancellor had been in Paris offici-
- ally since 1871 when Bismark
came to proclaim the German Em-
pire at Versailles at the end of the
