Border Crisis
Called Grave
Concentration Of Troops
On Frontiers Alarms
Premier Of France
Parliament Closes
In Sudden Uproar
PARIS, June 27 -OP)- Blunt-
spoken Premier Edouard Daladier
adjourned the French Parliament for
its summer vacation tonight with the
warning that the gravest interna-
tional crisis "in twenty years" faced
France with 3,000,000 soldiers across
her frontiers.
He said the troop concentrations
were "more important than ever be-
fore" and did not count "semi-mili--
tary units."
The Premier apparently 'referred
to the troops of Germany, Italy and
Spain and by "semi-military units"
meant the German S.S. and S.A. or-
ganizations and the Fascist Militia
of Italy.
Deputies In Uproar
The sudden adjournment, which
took most Deputies by surprise, cre-
ated an uproar in the chamber which
had expected the session to continue
through this week and possibly next
since several important questions
were pending.
" Deputies who had received their
gas masks just before reading of the
closing decree expressed amazement
at the extreme pessimism of the Pre-.
mier's speech delivered in a heavy,
measured tone.
At the Senate, where Daladier
later read the same decree, he was
equally grave and was heard by the
Senators in dead silence.
"We are in the hands of events and
it is possible that the Parliamentary
vacation will be more brief than
those who are protesting against
closing the session think," he said.
Some deputies said this referred to
the Constitutional requirement that
Parliament must act on any declar-
ation of war.
Ask Freedom
"What we ask you," he said, "is to
leave the government the liberty of
movement that is essential at the
present moment."
The Premier painted a gloomy pic-
ture of dangers surrounding France
in reply to a series of questions posed
by Louis Frossard on the use the
Government planned to make of its
decree powers during the summer re-
Intense foreign propaganda is be-
ing waged "to separate frenchmen
and disrupt the French and British
solidarity so indispensable to the
peace of the world."

"Michael and Mary" was first pro-
duced in New York on Dec. 10, 1929
and ran for 232 performances. Leads

Alan Alexander ,Milne is a play-
wright familiar to American audi-
ences. Of Scottish descent, a graduate
of Trinity College, Cambridge, he
began writing plays in 1918. His
"Belinda" was at one time in the
repertoire of Ethel Barrymore; his
"Mr. Pim Passes By" ran for almost
a season in New York; his "Dover
Road," "The Truth About Blayds,"
and "The Ivory Door" are well known
to theatre goers. Milne was for many
years editor of Punch Magazine and
has written numerous novels, the
best known of which are famous
children's stories of Winnie The Pooh
and "Christopher Robin."

Predicted By Paper
LONDON, June 27. -(P)- An
autumn homecoming for the Duke of
Windsor and his American-born
duchess was confidently predicted to-
night in large black type by the Eve-
ning Standard.
The Standard devoted the entire
top half of its front page to the story
that the Duke of Windsor, having
abandoned his demand that his
Duchess be made "Her Royal High-
ness"-the title given royal duchess-
es-would take up residence with her
here in October.___ ______

Still Missing

Dr. James Monroe Smith is still
the object of police search after
he resigned aspresident of Louisi-

peared with what officials now
believe is $500,000.

Promises State
A Square Deal
Louisiana Hears University
Ex-prexy Bilked Banks
Of Over Half Millioni
BATON ROUGE, La., June 27-()
-While new Governor Earl Long}
pledged a "square deal," news-groggy
Louisiana was told tonight the fugi-
tive former president of its State
University had bilked three big banks
of $500,000.
Since 51-year-old Dr. James Mon-
roe Smith dropped from sight Sun-
day night just after resigning, de-
tails of his ' supposed wrong-doing
had been as mysterious as his where-
abouts but late today Attorney Gen-
eral David M. Ellison announced
Smith had obtained a half million
dollars through invalid University
Ellison asserted any loss must be
borne by the banks and not by the;
University. He explained the money
had been obtained on notes which
had been accepted by the banks with-,
out required authority of the State,
Bond and Tax Board and therefore
the loans were between the banks
and Smith.
"State Police Superintendent Louis
F..Guerre said it was learned defin-
itely tonight that Dr. Smith had been;
in Memphis, Tenn., but could noti
now be located there.
"Guerre said J. Emory Adams,
Smith's wife's nephew, admitted driv-
ing the fleeing L.S.U. prexy there
after Smith resigned.
"The officer said Smith was not
now in Memphis but a nationwide
dragnet was being tightened in an
effort to capture the educator."

subsequent sessions are: "How Much
Government Do We Need?," "What's
Wrong with Our Schools?," "Can
We Have Peace in Industry?," and
"Whither World?" The panels, which

Siegel, Siegel,
Now Where's
(Special to The Daily)
BOWL, Detroit, June 27.-Even the
State police were trying to get Don
Siegel, Michigan's all-conference
football star who's now making a
living on the bashed nose and cauli-
flower ear circuit, into the ring to-
Informed in the middle of the
afternoon that George Cerosky, his
opponent in a four-round prelimi-
nary bout of the Johnny Whiters-
Steve Dudas card, had been injured
in an automobile accident outside
Barberton, O., while driving up for
the fight, Siegel took off his gloves
and went home to Ann Arbor.
That seemed OK -- until State
Boxing Commissioner John Hettche1
stepped in.
"Siegel was advertised as an at-
traction and fight or no fight he's
got to show up," the pug czar de-
"How can we get hold of him?"
his managers inquired frantically.
Doug Mode, the commission's sec-
retary, took things into hand by1
phoning the state police and having
Don ordered back to Detroit.
In the meantime the cynical com-
mission did a little more phone work,
asking the Ohio State Police to find
out whether the convenient acci-
dent at Barbertown really occurred.
The Siegel incident proved just1
about twice as interesting as the
main go, which saw Whiters, a 198-
pound Pontiac Negro veteran, skid
through to a split decision over New
Jersey's Steve Dudas, a 194 pounder
who was quite a fighter a long time
ago-a very long time ago.

Lovett, teacher of Henry Ford. Stu-
dents intending to take lessons in
square and country dancing are urged
to come on time as many late-comers
had to be turned away Monday be-
cause of lack of space.

Reveal 6-Year Curriculum
Study Results at 5 P.M.
Results of an important six-year
study of secondary school curricula
will be explained at 5 p.m. today in
the Rackham Auditorium by Prof.
George E. Carrothers of the Educa-
tion School. Professor Carrothers is
to talk on "Criteria for the Appraisal
of Educational Institutions."
Professor Carrothers will explain
some of the new criteria for evalu-
ating school programs that were de-
veloped as a result of the Coopera-
tion Study of Secondary School
Standards, of which he was general
chairman. This study, made possible
by a grant of $225,000 from the Gen-

HYDE PARK, N.Y., June 27.--P)
President Roosevelt told Congress
today it would undermine national
defense and. return control over
money toWall Street and interna-
tional bankers if it refused to con-
tinue his power to devalue the dollar.
He pictured for reporters a possible
return to the times when he said in-
ternational currencies were jumping
up and down like a Jack-in-the-box,
the internal economies of all na-
tions were disrupted and only specu-
lators and international bankers were
the beneficiaries.;
The devaluation power will expire
at midnight Friday unless Congress
drives a monetary bill to speedy final
enactment. A Senate vote yesterday
to strip from the measure a section
extending the devaluation authority
raised doubts over the possibility of
that action.
Ready For Press
Mr. Roosevelt anticipated a request
for comment on that vote at his press
conference. He was ready.
The loss of his power to reduce the
gold content of the dollar again would
strike a definite blow at national de-
fense, he said, since a nation was
weakened if its foreign trade was
Administration officials have con-
tended that the fact that the United
States could meet devaluation with
devaluation had tended to discour-
age other nations from entertaining
any idea of tampering with their
currencies to obtain a competitive
advantage in foreign trade.
More than the defense angle, the
President stressed the prospects that
control over -money might be taken
from the Treasury and handed over
to Wall Street, speculators and in-
ternational bankers.
Not Been Used
For 5% years, he said, we have
had the right to devalue the dollar
from 59 to 50 percent of its former
gold content. We haven't used it, he
said, and we have had no intention
of using it unless other principal na-
tions started taking cracks at us as
they did.in 1930 and 1931-when it
took us three years to recover.
As long as we have the right to
devalue another 18 per cent, he con-
tinued, the chances are 10 to 1 we
won't have to use it.
Taking away that right, he said,
meant a possible return to conditions
that existed in 1930 and 1931-giving
international speculators an oppor-
tunity to sell the pound short this
month, the franc next month and the
belga the month following.
Senators Reply
WASHINGTON, June 27.--P)-A
few barbed remarks from Hyde Park
stirred up anger in the Senate wing
of the Capitol today as worried Ad-
ministration leaders struggled to push
major legislation through Congress
by midnight Friday, 'the close of the
fiscal year.
The hard money Republicans from
the East and the "Silver Senators"
and currency expansionists of the
West who engineered the pooling of
votes which brought these things
about promptly made a series of
wrathful retorts. Privately, their
language was even more sulphurous.
Some old-timers at the Capitol,
summing the situation up, felt that
the development had served chiefly
to harden attitudes to a point which
any compromise arrangement could
be reached only with extreme diffi-
culty. And the Monetary Bill still
had a tortuous path to follow before
it could reach the White House.

Senator Thomas Asks Return
To Universal' Economic Laws

Blaming the plight of the world
today on economic nationalism and
the desruction of free enterprise,
United . States Senator Elbert D.
Thomas voiced a plea for the appli-
cation of "universal concepts" of
Asiatic study to the University cur-
riculum before a lecture audience
last night.
"Conditions today," he declared,
"are due primarily to the fact that
leaders of states and leaders of schools
of economics have been attempting
to run contrary to the world wide
economic habits of all time."
The history of the Far East dem-
onstrates that China's teeming mil-
lions have been the determining fac-
tor in world prosperity, he said. Since
Roman times they have absorbed the
"surplus" of the world, presenting an
inexhaustible market for the goods
of producer nations.

"Restore peace in the Far East for
just one season and give the Chinese
worker the chance to buy," he de-
clared, "and the cotton surplus pro-
blem of the United States will be
Drawing a moral for America and
the rest of the world from the history
of Asia, Senator Thomas hit at the
"planned economies" and authoritar-
ian regimes of today with the ring-
ing phrase: "You can't have political
democracy long in America unless
you have economic democracy with
it." And you can't have economic
democracy, he pointed out, without
free enterprise-the "freedom to
come and go and buy and sell as you
The growing philosophy of eco-
nomic self sufficiency of totalitarian
regimes has dangerous implications
for the United States, he indicated.
