Britain countered with a proposal Cor a nine-power anti-aggression declaration, to be followed if necessary by a foimal confeience aimed at agreeing on a "stop Hitler" pi'ogram. Russia had suggested] Bucharest as the most appropriate meeting place for any conference. As regards the original Russian proposal, the British government was said to feel that immediate action was imperative. Hence it favored a flat "stop 1 waining to Hitler, to be proclaimed to the world it once. It was argued that if necessary a full dress conference could be held after the declaration had been issued. But the government was said to feel that the more direct and positive was any international action, the greater its effect, and it was not enthusiastic about conferences. Britain pieferred a series of nav- to-day consultations through diplomatic channels, so that policy could remain liquid, ready for any emergency, and Germany could be Uept guessing, it was indicated.

Just as uncompromisingly t h e operators negotiatois, representing 21 producers associations, insisted upon a 50-cent reduction and retention of the 35- hour week. Charles P. O'Neill, spokesman for the operators, said today there was still time to negotiate an agreement before midnight March 31 if the conference doesn't waste time.

A special deciee divided the vital Metz area near the German frontier into two military regions, each with its own commander-m-chief. Another decree made the commanders of the Metz, Lyons and Strasbourg areas military governors and thus gave the army absolute control over all industrial and civil activities in thos,e regions. It was provided that the ministry of war should start at once creating a new native division in Morocco, to consist of picked men. President Lebrun's last official act before he left for London was to sign decrees authorizing today's action and giving the cabinet blanket authority to put France on a war footing by ordering industrial and partial m.litary mobilization under the near dictatonal powers granted by parliament.
