Future Of League Held At
Stake In Settlement Of
In Africa Continue
England To Demand Full
Investigation Of Border
GENEVA, July 30.-()-With
peace in Africa and possibly the fu-
ture of the League of Nations at
stake, statesmen of many nations
gathered tonight for tomorrow's ex-
traordinary session of the League of
Preparations for efforts here to
settle peacefully the Italo-Ethiopian
quarrel contrasted sharply with ap-
parent preparations for war.
Italy sent more troops to join the
tens of thousands already massed on
the Eritrea plateau, while Ethiopia's
field army, 10,000 strong, marched
away from Addis Ababa, supposedly
to the front.
Conflict Held Almost Certain
League officials said conflict was
almost sure to develop around the
council table. Italy, they pointed
out, wants to limit discussion sharply,
confining the council's procedure to,
reviving the Italo-Ethiopian concilia-
tion commission. Britain, on the
other hand, desires full investigation
of all issues, and may demand force-
ful League action. Scandinavian
states are reported determined to seek
League protection for small states,
such as Ethiopia.r
A dispatch from London said the;
British government's program in-;
volved efforts to bring Benito Mus-1
solini to accept economic concessions,I
instead of armed conquest, of Ethi-.
While Anthony Eden, Britain's sec-1
retary for League affairs, stopped over
at Paris to confer wih Premier Laval,,
expecting to accompany him to Gen-1
eva, Il Duce sent seven representa-
tives, headed by Baron Pompeo Aloisi.,
Ethiopia's spokesmen were already
upon the ground.
Trying to Find Phraseology
Eden and Laval were reported try-
ing to find some satisfactory phrase-
ology to cover Ethiopia's eventual sub-
mission to Italy, in an eleventh hour,
effort to avert war. Rome withheld
comment on the council's chances for
success, but 500 more officers and
men sailed from Naples for East Af-
Eden apparently was slated for the
role of "leading man" in tomorrow's
He brought with him the draft of
his government's carefully worked out
peace program, expected to prove an'
obstacle to continuance of the
League's current program of handling
with gloves the African dispute with
the African dispute with velvet gloves.
Ethiopian spokesmen, too, were in-
sistent that the council get to the
bottom of the dispute, instead of lim-
iting itself to discussion of the causes
of frontier clashes and resurrection1
of the conciliation commission, which,
collapsed recently at Scheveningen,

Link Name Of
$25,000 Fee Paid Former
Roosevelt Partner By A.
G. E. Company
Utility Magnate Is
Sought As Witness
Officials Deny O'Connor
Was Hired For Influence
WASHINGTON, July 30. - (') -
The Senate lobby committee today
was informed that Associated Gas &
Electric paid a $25,000 fee to Basil
O'Connor, former law partner of
President Roosevelt and brother of
Chairman John J. O'Connor, chair-
man of the House Rules Committee,
which is conducting a lobby inquiry.
F. S. Burroughs, vice president of
A. G. E., made the disclosure. Ques-
tioned by Senator Ernest W. Gibson,
Burroughs said O'Connor had been
employed only for the past six
Burroughs would not say definitely
whether O'Connor was retained in
connection with the Utility Bill lob-
"He is a former law partner of the
President,. but we didn't expect to
influence him," the witness added.
Had German Kin
"Did you know he had kin in the
Government service when you em-
"I wouldn't say we didn't" the
witness said, "but he wasa lawyer
of standing and we need lots of help."
Basil O'Connor formed a law part-
nership with Franklin D. Roosevelt
as Roosevelt & O'Connor in 1925.
The partnership was continued until
Mr. Roosevelt assumed the presidency
He remains in close contact with
the President, serving as treasurer of
th&aWarm Springs fund. His broth--
er, Rep. O'Connor is chairman of
the House lobby investigation, paral-
leling the House Inquiry.
Senate lobby investigators, mean-
while, broadcast a general alarm for
Howard C. Hopson, millionaire main-
spring of the vast Associated Gas &
Electric System, and threatened to
flood the country with subpenas com-
manding his appearance.
New testimony revealed the missing
witness to hold virtually dictatorial
power over the A. G. E. structure, ex-
tending downward through a bewild-
ering maze of subholding companies
to others which supply electricity, gas
and water to 2,000 communities.
The committee received investi-
gators' reports showing the cost of
A. G. E.'s fight against the Adminis-
tration Utility Bill and its abolition
for "unnecessary" holding companies
had mounted to $791,000. The com-
pany originally reported an outlay of
$700,000, a figure repeated only yes-
terday in a statement by Burroughs.
Hurley Is Mentioned
The day's evidence also brought in
the law firm of Patrick J. Hurley,
former secretary of war, as the re-
cipient of $25,000 in fees for help in
the campaign against the Utilities
It showed, too, that with an original
investment of $1,800, a subordinate
company of A. G. E. piled up a two-
year profit of $1,046,000 through ser-
vice fees charged the operating com-
Hurley was out of the city and not
expected back until tomorrow.

Yost Given Support
Encouraged by a slight though no-
ticeable climb by Coach Harry Kipke

football team which meets the Chi-
cago Bears Aug. 29, and by a large
return of ballots to The Daily, leaders
of the group which is sponsoring a

The balloting closes at midnight,
* In the poll results announced yes-
terday by the Chicago Tribune, which

Fundamental Issues Which
Precipitate Crises Are
Discussed By Visitor
Fundamental issues which precipi-
tate constantly recurring crises in
philosophy were discussed yesterday
in Natural Science Auditorium by
Prof. George Adams of the University
of California. Prof. Adams addressed
as Summer Session audience on "The
Present Crisis In Philosophy."
Any distinctive American contribu-
tion to philosophy or civilization will
come from some fresh restatement or
formulae for dealing with the rela-
tion between the "principles of or-
ganization which distinguish philo-
sophical thought and the materials
presented by nature and history, Prof.
Beginning with the assumption of
man as living in two modes of ac-
tion and knowledge, Prof. Adams
stressed the common structure be-
tween those two. Philosophy he sug-
gested as a process of gaining per-
spective, a perspective which is in
the set of fundamental organizing
principles by which man correlates
the two modes of action and knowl-
In all knowledge, behavior, and
conduct there must be the same com-
mon structure, Prof. Adams said, the
relationship between those same prin-

By Browns 8-6 In First
Game Of Series
DETROIT, July 30.-(/P) -For the
second consecutive time, a Detroit
ninth-inning rally fell short with the
bases loaded, and the Tigers lost to
the St. Louis Browns in the opening
game of their long home stand today,
Again Schoolboy Rowe was hit hard
and often. He allowed eight runs
and 12 hits in the seven innings he
worked, and it was a home run by
Julius Solters in the seventh with two
on that drove him to the showers.
Detroit lost no ground in the pen-
nant race, however, for Philadelphia
whipped the Yankees.
Matching the Browns in number of
hits, Detroit was unable to score runs
in bunches and found themselves
pecking away futilely at a four-run
St. Louis lead throughout the last
half of the game.
With the bases packed and the
Tigers two runs behind in the ninth,
Billy Rogell lifted an easy fly to left
ending the game. Detroit had scored
one run previously in this inning, and
the winning run was on base.
Pete Fox's homer was the most not-
able offensive move for Detroit, while
Solters was the chief thorn in he
Bengal flesh. His two singles and
timely home run enabled.him to score
twice and bat in two teammates.
Tommy Bridges is expected to take
the mound for Detroit in the second
game of the series tomorrow.

State Department Attacks
Current Nazi Activities
Nazi Note Of Protest
In Riot Is Received
LaGuardia Promises That
Those Who Tore Banner
Down Will Be Punished
WASHINGTON, July 30. -( P) -
Taking direct official cognizance of
current Nazi activities against Jews
and Catholics, the state department
today spoke out for religious freedom
Coincidentally, diplomatic officials
acted upon a formal German protest
against an alleged insult to a Nazi)
flag, stripped by a mob from the liner
Bremen in New York harbor. Upon
receipt of the protesting note from
the German embassy, the Department
relayed its content to Gov. Herbert
H. Lehman, of New York.
La Guiardia Promises Action
Almost immediately came word
from Mayor Fiorello La Guardia, of
New York, that those involyed in the
flag incident would be prosecuted.
In answer to a letter from four
leadingrJewish organizations, Acting
Secretary Williams Phillips declared
that Americans considered religious
freedom and liberty of conscience "the
most fundamental principles of our
civilization and political faith" and
were sympathetic to the maintenance
of those concepts in all countries.
"A Serious Insult"
He added that he could "fully un-
derstand" the solicitude regarding
the "experiences which these '(relig-
ious) groups are reported to be suf-
fering in Germany."
The German government formally
protested against what it termed a
serious insult to the German national
emblem in a note delivered at the
state department by Dr. Rudolph
Leitner, German charge d'aff airs, act-
ing under instruction from the Ber-
lin foreign office.
While the department did not make
public the text of the note it was
learned authoritatively that it re-
quested the American authorities to
make every effort to insure that the
anti-Nazis who tore down the swas-
tika flag be punished.
No Apology Demanded
It was learned also that the note did
not demand an official apology. Wil-
bur J. Carr, acting secretary at the
time of the incident, made an infor-
mal and verbal apology the next day
by expressing regret that irresponsible
individuals would mistreat the flag of
any friendly nation.
The Nazi note had immediate reper-
cussion on Capitol Hill, where Ger-
man incidents have been discussed on
the floors of both Houses.
Rep. Samuel Dickstein, New York
Democrat, chairman of the House Im-
migration Committee, said that he
would "bitterly oppose" any apology
for the flag incident.
Sen. William H. King, Utah Dem-
ocrat, pressing his resolution for an
investigation of Nazi activities, as-
"Let Germany apologize for the
way she has treated our citizens and

Marshall Explains Importance
Of The Satire In Moliere Farce
By ELSIE PIERCE
"In spite of the fact that 'The Doc-
tor In Spite of Himself' is an extrav-
agant and joyous farce," Oswald Mar-
shall, guest director of the Michigan
Repertory Players, who will open the
Moliere comedy tonight at the Lydia
Mendelssohn theater, "it is also sig-
nificant as another of Moliere's many
attacks upon humbug and quackery in
whatever form he found it."
"The Doctor in Spite of Himself"
is a brilliant satire on the medical
profession, he said, "and when the
amazing state of medical science in
the seventeenth century is known,
Moliere's play hardly seems exag-
feat of bringing drama one step closer
Moliere was not only a playwright,
but was an actor of note in his own
times. He also managed his own
company. He wrote many of his plays
for the court of Louis XIV, bringing
his company before the court.
Moliere died, according to reports,
after catching cold when playing in
one of his own plays, "Le Medecin
Imaginaire." However, in spite of
the successes of his plays before thej
court, he was refused the last rites
and proper burial by the parish priest.

countermanded the order that the
