Paris, June 5. — Pierre Laval, swarthy, imperturbable independent senator and veteran of politics, accepted tentatively today a mandate to form a cabinet and liquidate the financial crisis. Reluctantly, after several refusals, he agreed to try to form a government after Jean Jeanneney, president of the senate, refused. Two governments had fallen within a week. A stubborn, suspicious chamber of deputies had lurled to defeat first Pierre Etienne . Flandin, then Fernand Bouisson rather than give them emergency powers to deal with the financial problems. Laval refused last night to act, and recommended that Bouisson reform a cabinet. Bouisson, angry over his defeat by 264 to 262 votes on his demand for emergency powers, declined to serve again. He obtained a promise from the Nationalist associations, including the war veterans, not to indulge in street manifestations against the chamber during the crisis. Left wing parties met in the chamber and sought with apparent lack of success to find a means to form a left wing coalition, which would include Communist.?, Socialists, and left radicals. At the Diana. Two American playwrights combined their talents to write "The Bride of Frankenstein," the strange Universal screen' drama which comes to the Diana theater on Sunday, June 9, with Karloff in the starring role. The two men are William Hurlbut and John.L. Balderston, and though their story has for its central character the grotesque "Monster" originated by Mary Wollstonecroft Shelley, the screen-play is an original one. William Hurlbut, born in Belvidere, Illlinois, on July 13, 1883, prepared for a career as an artist at art schools in St. Louis and Chicago, but turned his attention to writing plays and is the author of such successes at "Lilies of the Field," "Little Miss Fix-it," "The Fighting Hope" and "Trimmed _in Scarlet." Is Improving Slowly. Mrs. Lynn Pickerel!, who underwent a severe operation 1 two weeks ago Monday, at the Coleman hospital in Indianapolis, is now at the home of her son Lawrence Pickerell and family, 238 Kentucky Ave. Mrs. Pickerell is making a slow but steady improvement and will be confined to her bed for some time before being permitted to take any exercise. She was brought to the son's home Monday, making the trip in a private car. Is in Hospital. Mrs. M. G. Nicholson of this city, has entered a hospital in Gary where she will be under observation and treatment for a time, and will possibly undergo an operation.

FRENCH CRISIS. Heriot May Attempt to Form a New Cabinet. • Paris, June 6. — A defliant Chamber of Deputies by two votes yesterday overthrew the young Cabinet of Fernand Bouisson and last night both the veteran Pierre Laval and Bouisson refused calls from President Lebrun to.Jtorm a new one. France was thus plunged into one of its greatest political crises of years. The Bouisson government was smashed when it demanded emergency powers from the chamber to safeguard the franc. Edouard Herriot, whose Cabinet fell several years ago because he insisted upon payment of war debts to America, was widely regarded as the President's next choice. PRINCESS OPERATED.
