PARIS, July 8.-()-A huge pool
of gold for defense of their curren-
cies was formed today by six chiefs
of central banks of gold countries
who threw down the gage of battle
to the world.
The National Banks of Italy, Bel-
gium, Poland, Holland and Switzer-
land joined the Bank of France in
the formation of this gigantic fund
to maintain their respective coun-
tries on the gold standard.
The agreement for this concerted
action was proclaimed as solely for
self-protection and in nowise direct-
ed against the dollar or the pound.
The fund will be operated as a vig-
orous attack against speculators.
Technical arrangements were
worked out by the gold bloc bankers
at their meeting in the Bank of
France, including a common fund
to maintain their monies at parity.
A Fight Against Time
Experts at the close of the con-
ference frankly recognized that their
battle was a fight against time and
they admitted that if it continued
for several months some of the
weaker countries still on gold prob-
ably would drop out, although the
six conferring nations are sure that
they can hold out. .
It was learned authoritatively that
t-oMe wil ~e'embargo n gold
exportations by the countries in-
It was expected that Germany,
Czechoslavakia and the Free City of
Danzig would join the agreement
The gold situation will be reviewed
at the next meeting of the directors
of the Bank for International Set-
tlements on July 7.
The six countries participating in
the meeting and the agreement hold
40 per cent of the world's supply ofi
gold. Their action was declared to1
be designed to "maintain unhin-
dered the functioning of the goldl
standard in their respective coun-
tries, at present parities."1
Hull Attempts To Keep
Economic Parley Alive
LONDON, July 8.-(P)-Cordell
Hull, American secretary of state,,
sought tonight to rally the forces of
the World Economic Conference,1
sorely divided over the monetary is-t
sue, by issuing a challenge to states-t
manship and pointing to various
major problems which he said the1
nations might yet attack.
In an appeal which was inter-
preted as aimed primarily at regain-
ing the co-operation of France and
other members of the gold bloc, Hull
urged the summoning of "fresh reso-
lution to surmount immediate ob-
stacles" and called for better under-E
standing of opposing viewpoints.
Armed with fresh amplifications ofE
President Roosevelt's policies, re-1
ceived by cable today Hull endeav-
ored to enlist as many nations as
possible in a price-raising programf
on an internationalhscale similar to
that under way in the United States.E

Boxing Gloves Balance
For Scales Of Justice
CRISFIELD, Md., July 8.-()')-
Algie Crippin and Louis White, two
Negroes, were brought before Mag-
istrate Fred N. Holland on a charge
of being drunk and disorderly..
The Magistrate conferred with
Sheriff Luther Laugherty, and they
agreed it would be futile to put the
county to a $30 expense for impris-
oning the Negroes five days, the cus-
tomary penalty.
The county officials then decided
that justice could be satisfied, the
county funds protected and the
argument settled all at one time.
The Negroes were provided with
boxing gloves, a ring marked off on
the water front and the pair told to
fight it out. For more than an hour,
all commercial activity in the neigh-
borhood was stopped while a crowd
watched the fight. Crippen was de-
clared the winner on' points.
Professor Bohr
Ends Series Of
Lectures Here
Prof. Niels Bohr, Nobel prize win-
ner who finished his series of lec-
tures here last week on the funda-
mental concepts of physics, is now on
his way back to Copenhagen; Den-
mark, it was announced yesterday
by members of the physics depart-
Professor Bohr is the most im-
portant theoretical physicist of the
present day and nearly all the' prog-
ress -made in experimental as well as
theoretical physics in the past 15
yearsecan be considered. as adirect
result of his work, authorities said.
He stated before leaving AnntArbor
that it was a great pleasure to him
to have taken part in the Physics
Symposium of which he had already
heard so much from colleagues and
friends who had attended previous
successful sessions.
That this Physics Symposium,
unique in this country, has become
a tradition at Michigan makes the
possibility of success greater each
year, he said. It attracts the inter-
est of scientists throughout the
country and has no doubt an influ-
ence on the forming of theoretical
physicists here. To the advantage
of those who attend these Symposia,
as well as for this University, Prop:
fessor Bohr expressed the hope that
it will be possible to continue the
annual meetings for many summers.

Roosevelt Is
Adding Force
To Wet Votes
Three Southern States'
Impending Balloting Is
Cause Of Message
Telegrams Sent As
Reminders Of Aims
President's Message Is
Restatement Of Speech
Made At Convention
WASHINGTON, July 8--(A)-With
three southern states approaching
votes on prohibition repeal, Presi-
dent Roosevelt today put his force
behind the Democratic campaign
pledge to expel the Eighteenth
Amendment from the Constitution.
Pointing out that he had had in-
quiries from Tennessee, Arkansas,
and Kentucky as well as Alabama,
Mr. Roosevelt sent a telegram to
Leon McCord, the Democratic na-
tional committeeman for Alabama,
repeating again his stand on repeal:
"I have made it clear ever since my
nomination a year ago that I sub-
scribe to the Democratic platform
one hundred per cent," it read.
Alabama, Arkansas, and Tennessee
vote this month on repeal.
This is one of the first utterances
of Mr. Roosevelt on prohibition re-
peal since he took the oath of office.
In his acceptance speech at Chicago
a year ago, he said he was whole-
heartedly in favor of the Democratic
platform and would work to see that
it was fulfilled.

Immediate Steps To
Reach American Flyer
(By The Associated Press)
Rescue parties seekingsJimmie
Mattern directed their attention to-
day to a point in the Siberian wil-
derness 50 to 80 miles from the tiny
village of Anadyrsk.
A wireless message from Anadyrsk
relayed through the coast guard cut-
ter Northland to San Francisco said
the 28-year-old Texan had crashed
80 miles from ther. Fragmentary
reports received in Moscow indicated
he went down 80 .kilometers (50
miles) from the village.
Irving Friedman, backer of a res-
cue airplane expedition from New
York, informed of Mattern's where-
abouts, said William Alexander, chief
pilot of the expedition, would carry
on into Siberia.
Message Is Confirmed
The Texan who set out alone to fly
around the world and who had been
unreported three weeks, got a mes-
sage through to civilization Friday.
It read:
"Safe at Anadyr, Chukotka, Si-
beria, Gemmy Mattern."
Sent by wireless from the Soviet
station at Anadyrsk, July 5, it was
received in Moscow Friday. The
Soviet government issued a com-
munique confirming the message.
Neither the misspelling of Mat-
tern's first name nor that of Anad-

yrsk created doubt of authenticity.
The Soviet governmenthtook imme-
diate steps to reach the flyer and
care for his needs. Moscow ordered
the officials of four eastern provinces
to check definitely on his where-
abouts and take care of his wants.

Pittsburgh, 1932 captain, Captain-
elect James Cristy of Ann . Arbor,
brilliant long distance free-styler,
and Richard Degener of Detroit,
champion fancy diver, will compete
in the National A. A. U. outdoor meet
to be held as a sport feature of Chi-
cago's Century of Progress Exposition
next Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Schmieler, who graduated in June,
will be wearing the colors of the D.
A. C. for the first time. He is a prob-
able place-winner in his favorite
event, the 300-yard medley swim.
Cristy, like Degener, will compete un-
attached in two free style races, the
800 and 1600 meter. It is expected
that the lanky Michigan star will
have difficulty in outdistancing three
strong competitors, Wiget, Flanagan,
and Medica, but he will undoubtedly
place high in both events. The third
Michigan man, Degener, is a top-
heavy favorite to win the two div-
ing titles, from the platform and the
10-foot springboard. The blond diver
has won four 'major titles this year,
and two victories at Chicago would
give him a perfect record for the sea-
Both Cristy and Degener were
members of Uncle Sam's Olympic
swimming team at Los Angeles in
1932, and each of them was a point
winner. The former placed third in
the 1500-meter swim behind two Jap-
anese school-boys, while the Detroit
boy also won a third in the spring-
board diving event with two of his
own countrymen ahead of him.
