January 26. - The dis-eusicon ef possible economic "ap-pewe.nent' In Europe will be intensified ail over the world with the publiration in Friday's news-p.r..ri of the long awaited report by ?aul van Zeeland of Belgium.

PMiC REACTION SOUGHT. Tt report can hardly be endorsed ur. a whele by British and French go'ifWittients and its recommendation! may never be embodied in formMntal policies. Mr. Cham-erla ii, (of 4xample, likes some of it .psoposak but is not enthusiastic vw others such as a five-power eec-siomie conference which is said to te one of Van Zeeland's specific rewimmeriations. But Premier Chamberlain and his GivtrrsD.em want the report to be duciiaifd in all its aspects by public opinion.. They are curious to obtti've public reaction not only to Vs Zeeland's proposals but to the fir? part ef the report which survey obstacles heretofore facing wc'd economic recovery. 'the British Government is especially glad the report will be a con-ciMiiorjr document for conciliation is mt of the watchwords of British ptL'ey at tiie present time. In spite of all provocation the British Gov-ersment is trying to minimize rivalries already evident between democratic and totalitarian states, the British may be rearming against the these aggressive dictatorships but at thi? same time they feel that demo-c?aoies and dictatorships must learn to Jive ids by side if another world wfir is to be avoided. T!he search for economic and political conciliation is going on busily amiougli en the surface the present aRjears Sc be the quietest period British diplomacy has known for two and a half years. There is accumulating evidence that Mr. Chambefjain and his intimate ad-vers are working quietly behind tins scenes to discover some way of ctortcibatiiig Germany and Italy mvnout overturning international nvjurahty ia the process.

Quebec, January 28. P A no-quarter warfare against Communism, labelled "Public Enemy No. I" by Quebec's Premier, was pledged loday in the Speech from the Throne launching the third session of the province's 20th Legislature. Th speech, read by Lieutenant-Governor E. L. Patenaude from 'the Throne of the aged Legislative Council chamber, outlined a broad programme of National Union Government Jrgtitallon providing for aid to the province's basic Industries and co-operaticn with neighboring Ontario in th solution of common problems.

"War against this enemy of our iniiiiuiinna and traditions will be waged flnlleJy." the Speech de-flared, and fnr the purpose the fXinlelur would b aiked to -approve reorganisation of the provincial poliro. who have been striking almost daily at suspected sources of Communistic propaganda with raids, seizures and padlockings. Much of the speech, delivered simultaneously to the members of Upper and Lower Chambers, was devoted to a sketch of legislation aimed at strengthening the "fundamental" farming industry. But the l,20U-word address forecast Premier Maurice Duplessis's Government would bring down measures also for forestry, mining, education, fisheries, the unemployed, capital-labor co-operation, hydro-electricity, and statute revision. The Ontario-Quebec economic alliance, cemented in conferences between Premier Mitchell Hepburn and Premier Duplessis, was emphasized. "The Government of Quebec," the speech said, "is pleased to co-operate with the Government of Ontario toward the solution of their common problems, for it believes such a co-operation is in the best interests of both provinces and the entire country." To the members of the Legislative Assembly the Lower House the speech brought the formal advice that the province had enjoyed a revenue surplus on ordinary account over the last fiscal year. Provincial Treasurer. Martin B. Fisher previously had announced the surplus. The speech sounded the opening note for the second regular session of the National Union administration that swept the 40-year Liberal regime out of power in August, 1MB.

(Wireless to The New York Times . . and The Gazette.) . . Paris, January 26. Fourteen men, of whom five were soldiers, were killed this morning in, the Paris suburb of Ville Juif by the explosion of 3,000 hand' grenades which were recently seized in the depots of Cagoulard plotters. So powerful was the explosion that bodies and . limbs of men were blown to pieces and scattered a distance of nearly 200 yards. The police laboratory from which the cases of grenades were being moved to the military depot at Versailles was partially wrecked and the windows of houses nearly a mile around were shattered. : The fact that the ammunition was part of the big supply of the Cagoulard or CSAR organization, which was plotting to upset the regime and seize power, has given the tragedy a political aspect although the explosion was possibly due, according to statements of investigators, to the careless handling of the cases containing the grenades. In Left political circles there was an urgent demand today that those in any way implicated in the plot , Continued on Page 17, Col. 6.) C.I.O.

No one will be deceived by it. This is identical with the impossible plan proposed by Mr. Lewis towards the end of the peace conferences. After he had vetoed our proposal which had been accepted and approved by the C.I.O. committee, we rejected his plan then because it would not bring about peace.

Brazil-Italy Trade Deal Held Aim Of Touted Flight by Dace's Son (Special Cable to The New York Times and The Gazette.) Rio de Janeiro, January 26. Sur. rounded by an aura of success. Brunj Mussolini, I Duce's favored son. arrived here last night after his nighly-publicized non-stop flight from Dakar. West Africa, to Rio, a distance of 5,000 -kilometers. II Duce's air fleet covered the Dakar-Hio distance in 13 hours. 48 minutes, three planes made the flight, but one of them landed at Natal, up the coast. ' Whether Bruno Mussolini ' established a flying record or not, one thing is clear that behind the speed spurt of his three fleet planes he matives other hah merely a goodwill visit to the new unitarian regime set up by President Getulio Vargas on November 10. The flight just ended is a sequel to two other flights in less than a month. Arriving early ln January six crack Italian aviators remained her for romi time, flew over the city and often engaged in all kinds of acrobatics. Soon after that Italy's chief ace. Stopanni arrived. The purpose behind the flights has been given out as a study of air routes to es tablish regular air traffic between Rome.' Rio and Buenos Aires, which according to plan will be a 48-h.our run. Because of recent heavy purchases of planes by Brazil, especially from the United States, and the certainty that Brazil . has only scratched the surface of air preparedness, to the Italian . flights and the lustre added by the presence of II Duce's son can be linked the parpose of impressing the Brazilian Government with tne f erformance of Italian-made planes, n fact, Italy was compelled to do something of the kind if she wanted to put her finger into Brazil's airplane-buying pic. Several years ago, when Balbo brought here a large fleet of Italian planes and traded them for coffee, it soon was found that the planes were safer on land than in the air. On the other hand, the fliers may be simply general trade ambassadors paving the way to a new programme to open new commercial channels between Brazil and Italy. (Continued on Pag 8, Col. 7.) Denounces Talk ol Amendment Without Provincial Unanimity SEES CONTRACT BREACH Avers Quebec's Desire for, Unity and Co-operation But 'Not by Force' By ABEL VINEBERG (Gazette Staff Correspondent.) Quebec, January 26. In a ringing challenge to Ottawa's threat of amendment to the; British North America Act without . unanimous consent of the provinces, Premier Maurice Duplessis tonight declared Quebec would yield no further power to a Federal authority which "says it can do better, yet neither of the parties has hiid the guts to settle the railway problem." His audience, delegates to the convention of the Canadian Construction Association here, gasped at the Premier's use of the word "guts" but warmly applauded his statement. "They say there is overlapping (of government services)," cried the Premier. "The same people who make this statement are the ones who put the country into the mess in which it is at present. They are the people who . cannot settle the railway problem, who have hatched schemes that cost the people dear. "I am willing to go to school, but I want my teacher tn be able to teach me something. We have nothing to learn from Ottawa, and the sooner they realize it the better. "There can. never be and there will never be unity if they try to force it on us." , . The Quebec Premier's address, delivered at: the banquet' of the Construction Association convention in the Chateau Frontenac, was a warm appeal for unity and cooperation within the Dominion of Canada but on the basis of Confederation, not of legislative union. Any tampering with the British North America Act at the word of a mere majority of the provinces wa3 a breach of solemn contract which could rot be tolerated. Quebec was not opposed to change, ,ior was she parochial or disloyal French-Canadians stood by their allegiance to the British Crown. But toe basic principle of Confederation was provincial autonomy, and on that autonomy Quebe: would continue to insist The Premier commenced by saying that vhile there might at times be differences as to financial responsibility, there was agreement as to exchange of view in vital and national problems. "Lately, and during the last few months," said the Quebec Premier, "those of you who have read the newspapers realize that there is a movement afoot by people of good faith and I believe in that good faitK who wish to centralize authority and do away with provincial autonomy. I think it proper that the position of Quebec should be made clear once for all. In Quebec we are not parochial. We are not separatists. We are true to the British Crown because we swore allegiance to the Crown, and we recognize that the British Crown is one of the most important factors of peace and order in the whole world." The builder was th great man, and of all the builders the greatest had been the builders of Confederation, said the Premier. Tne foundation of Confederation was greater than all other foundations. Confederation of Canada had been built by men of different political opinions. The task had been accomplished at a time when men's minds were cU ar, capable of studying and weighing problems, and not in times of stress and disturbances, "and," added the Premier, "I consider anyone, no matter of what politics, who tries lo hurt Confederation, is the worst enemy of Canada ru'd of the British Empire." Changes? He favored rhanges, and he believed that recently the Province of Quebec had benefited from a change (This brought laughter.) ' STANDS BY B.N.A. ACT. The Premier added: "Thtre ar changes, and changes. It is trua that a building may not be of the tarn dimensions, that some people may want the parlor in frnnl and others in the rear, but the. vital 'act is that a building no matter of what size or color is a building with foundations if it Is worth vhile. Ihat is a cardinal principle and cannot be changed, and, as far is Quebec la enncermd, we will sand on our obligations and without challenge or threat to rnyona deciare that th poslimn of Quebec is clear, Hnd thoif. who contend that the Constltutl m, or the Rritlnh North Amerlci Act. may be changed with thi crntent pf a majority of the provinces do not realize what they an say Could there be a mor slam ful repudiation of contract, demanded the Premier, than such a chsnc even if the majority of th provinces were ln favor?
