The new cabinet he will be called upon to* form is scheduled to last until mid-January, when a permanent government is to be established. The Socialist party had announced earlier in the day that Blum would take the job on condition that he be unopposed. The Socialist announcement said that the aging Blum, who •was premier in 1936-1937 and again for a short period in 1938. had agreed to return from political retirement to head the government and deal with Prance's urgent financial and economic situation. .The Communist party, strongest of the three main parties, made no statement of its attitude toward the Blum candidacy prior to the inter- party meeting.
