The opposition began attacking the government's financial policies and plans to remove the $232,000,000 deficit as soon as Daladier and the cabinet were seated on- government benches. The pro. gram was said to take too little off government expenditures and to put too great a burden on middle-class taxpayers. The government's life was threatened by powerful elements In the chamber which overthrew the last two cabinets. The frequency with which governments are ousted gave rise to the papu- lar expression "to the guillotine." Meanwhile French business men, angered by increased taxation and the Inability of the government to pass the budget, made plans for a "business strike" throughout France next Thursday.
