Philip Barry's brilliant comedy,
"Paris Bound," will open the third
season of the Michigan Repertory
players tomorrow night at the Lyd-
ia Mendelssohn theatre, as the first
in a series of seven plays.
"Paris Bound," which is being di-
rected by Valentine B. Windt of
Play Production, treats of modern
domestic problems. It recently fin-
ished a successful run on Broadway
and as a motion picture starring
Ann Harding.
Will Run Four Days.
The student dramatic organiza-
tion, which is sponsored by Play
production department, will present
six more plays during the Summer
Session, running from Wednesday
through Saturday of each week.
The remaining plays will be, in the
order named: Moliere's "Don Juan";
"Lilliom" by Ferenc Molnar; "Love
and Chance" by Marivaux; Susan
Glaspel's Pulitzer prize play, "Ali-.
son's House"; W. Somerset Maugh-
am's "The Circle"; and an original
play by Thomas Wood Stevens and

Staff Augmented.
Two prominent directors have
been added to the staff of the or-
ganization for the Summer Session.
Thomas Wood Stevens, one of the
three judges of plays for the Hop-
wood contests, and M. Jean Mer-
cier, of the Cornish school, in Se-
attle, will assist director Windt.
Stevens and Mercier are both
prominent in dramatic circles. Ste-
vens is the founder of the Carnegie
Institute of Technology drama
school and was head of it for more
than 10 years. For six years, he
was director of the Goodman thea-
tre, in Chicago. He is also promi-
nent as an author and playwright,
having collaborated in the writing
of one of the summer presentations
To Supervise Comedy.
Mercier came to the United
States nearly two years ago to en-
ter the staff of the Cornish school.
He was formerly connected with the
Theatre du Vieux Colombier, Paris.
He will remain here three weeks
to direct the Marivoux comedy.
Director Valentine B. Windt has
requested students who would be
interested in taking part in these
productions during the summer to
interview him.

Other Countries in Agreement
on Hoover's Debt Plan,
Castle States.
WASHINGTON, June 29. (P) -
Two points of disagreement tonight
prevented an accord between the
United States and France on the
moratorium plan.
France insists that Germany's
proposed unconditional reparations
be made available for the use of
the Paris government at the expira-
tion of the moratorium. America
takes the position that the money
should be funded over a period of
Two Statements Issued.
The French ministry wants na-
tions other than Germany to share
in the credits for loans by the in-
ternational bank from the uncondi-
tional German payments which are
to be continued uninterrupted.
Washington is anxious that all
money paid into the international
bank by Germany in the next year
go back to Germany, if the Reich
so desires.
Two statements were issued to-
day by Acting Secretary Castle of
the State Department. He came
after a conference with President
Hoover and after reports from Se-
cretary Mellon and Ambassador
Edge at Paris. The first statement
said no agreement had been reach-
ed with the French because "some
details" remain to be settled. The
second, issued tonight, pointed to
France as the only nation which
had not agreed to President Hoo-
ver's proposal in principle.
Discussions Continue.
"It is our understanding," the
last statement said, "that all gov-
ernments have now agreed in ~in-
ciple to the President's plan except
the French government. Some dif-
ficulties have arisen in reconciling
the French position with the spirit
of the President's proposal. Dis-
cussions are still continuing be-
tween Ambassador Edge and Secre-
tary Mellon and the French minis-
A delay in negotiations was in-
dicated by Secretary Mellon in his
last report to Washington. The
French cabinet must appear tomor-
row before the Senate. Discussion

Polish Corridor Will Be Grave
Danger to European Peace
Within Decade.
"The League of Nations can fore-
stall possible war by virtue of her
right to reconsider treaties that im-
peril peace, according to the nine-
teenth article of the Covenant of
the League," declared Prof. James,
K. Pollock, of the history depart-
ment, as the first lecturer on the
University summer program, yes-
terday. "The peace of Europe will
be in grave danger within a decade
if the problem of the Polish corri-
dor is not solved," he said. The
unnecessarily stupid drawing up of
the boundaries of the corridor by
the terms of peace imposed upon'
Germany by the Allied and asso-
ciated powers was given as one of
the important reasons for the Po-
lish-German impasse. The Germ-
ans of East Prussia have been vir-
tually denied access to the Vistula
which has now ceased to be the
important artery of trade that it
was under German rule, Professor
Pollock said.
"The Germans feel that the Po-
lish corridor has cut the fatherland
in two," he continued. "On a rail-
way journey, German passengers
will talk rather vehemently while
passing through this corridor of the
wrong done to Germany. Accusa-
tions of racial, governmental, cul-
tural and educational discrimina-
tion are rhade by the Germans liv-
ing in the corridor against the Po-
lish government," Professor Pollock
"Poland is now a great Power, a
republic in name but with a mili-
tary dictatorship, with thirty mil-
lions of people, and is growing fast-
er than any other country in Eur-
ope. The Polish nation is becom-
ing sea-minded because of the ac-
cess to the sea and a remarkable
port only 18 mile from the free city
of Danzig is being built at Gdynia,
that may become the rival of Dan-
zig, one of the leading ports of the
Baltic since the 12th century, Pro-
fessor Pollock explained.

Last Year; Literary School Shows
Slight Decrease.
A record attendance for the University's thirty-eighth annual
Summer Session was indicated yesterday, when 3,750 students had
enrolled at the close of registration for the day. This total is an
increase of 239 over the number registered at a similar time last
summer. Since more than 40o entered after the first Monday last
year, it appears possible that the total for this summer will be well
over 4,000.
Phenomenal gains were shown in the registration for the Gradu-
ate school, which totalled 1,750. The number entered at a similar
time last year was 1,362, an increase for this summer of 388. The
College of Lterature, Science, and the Arts was second in enrollment

Students in Good Standing May
Obtain Permits.
Summer Session students who are
engaged in professional pursuits
during the regular academic year
are not subject to restriction in the
use of automobiles during the sum-
mer, W. B. Rea, assistant to the
dean of students, said yesterday,
explaining the application of the
University automobile .regulation,
which went into effect on the first
day of the session.
The recreational use cars, Rea ex-
plained, applies only to athletics,
such as golf, tennis, and swimming,
and does not permit the use of cars
for other personal purposes. Any
student not on warning or proba-
tion -and not repeating courses or
working off conditions may obtain a
recreational permit, Rea said. This
permit allows him to take other
students with him when he is driv-
ing to lakes, golf courses, or other
recreational fields. A student with
such a permit must not drive with
a girl after 9 o'clock at night, Rea
said. This curfew hour applies on-
ly when members of both sexes are
in the car, he explained.
Rea cautioned students under the
Irestriction not to drive without first
obtaining permits, since the regu-
lation became effective yesterday.
Students who have received permit
tags should be sure to attach them
properly, he said. Further informa-
tion- may be obtained in room 2,
