By LESLIE D. HARROP ~ (United Frets Leased Wire) D ETROIT, Mich., Feb. 14.—Every bank and financial Institution In the state of Michigan was closed today under a sweeping, eight-day suspension order Issued In the early hours of the morning by Governor William A. Comstock. 'The closing order 'brought to a standstill the .financial affairs of Detroit, the nation's automobile capital, and halted similar activity In scores of farming and Industrial communities of the state, which has a population of more than five million. Action Explained Immediate necessity for the unprecedented moratorium was created, Governor ComBtock declared, by a crisis in the affairs of the Union Guardian Trust Company of Oetrolt. Ho said he understood the trust company would have had to clone Its doors this morning. Last-mlnuto emergency measures were started by Michigan banking department officials to provide the necessary cash to tide the state over the holiday. Plans, under which small and necessary bank withdrawal could be made wore considered by R. E. Rolchert, state banking commissioner. A possibility that the right-day banking holiday "might be modified In a day or so after the banks get straightened out," was seen by Governor Comstock today as he prepared tfc return to tho Capitol. $1,555,385.768 "Frozen" Banking officials estimated the holiday paralyzed approximately $1,410,- 91S.629 In banks and $144,407,139 In trust companies. These amounts are virtually "frozen" for the next eight days even though plans are effected to allow small withdrawals for ncces- ettles.

H.—The valedictory of President Hoover's administration—a plea for co-operation by the peoples of the world to restore prosperity—lay before the nations today. • Speaking to 1500 party leaders and adherents at the Lincoln day dinner of the National j Republican Club, he called for "bold and courageous action" on u united world front.

He said: "If some sort of international financial action Is necessary to enable central banks to co-operato for the purpose of stabilizing currencies, nations should have no Uesitutlon In joining such an operation under proper safeguards. If some part of the debt payments to us oould be set aside from temporary use for this purpose, we should not hesitate to do so. At tho same time the world should endeavor to find a place for silver, at least In enlarged subsidiary coinage." M'arning that tho return of the gold standard Is Imperative, he said: "If tho major nations will enter the road leading to tho early re-estab- llBhment of the gold standard, then and then only can the abnormal bar- Irlers to trade, the quotas, the prefer| ences, the discriminatory agreements and tariffs which exceed the differences In costs of production between PAL EWE Attempt of Quartet to Loot Express Car Thwarted Warnings Sent China Ignored; Tokio Defies League on Manchukuo (United Press Leafed Wire) Another war with China, with- the Japanese threatening to sweep southward, clearing the province of Jehol and perhaps even storm- Ing the major cities of Tientsin and Pelplng, appeared Imminent today.
