French Wou Over by Argument, Tampering With Currency Might Cause Price Debacle-Hull Urges Nations Drop Trade Barriers London, June 22 () The American delegation to the World Economic Conference said in a statement today that the United States Government feels that currency stabilization now would be untimely and possibly would "cause a violent price recession" to the detriment of the conferences The statement said that "undue emphasis" had been placed upon proposals for temporary stabilization, and asserted this matter was never an affair of the delegation itself but rather of the Treasury and the central banks of the United States, Great Britain and Prance. Price-Raisin Held Vital The American Government, the statement continued, feels "that Its efforts to raise prices are the most Important contribution it can make." Simultaneously with the publication of the American statement it was authoritatively said the confer-ence had been saved from foundering on the rocks of stabilization as the result of aojigreement by American and French representatives to postpone discussion of the stabilization question. Prime Minister Ramsay MacDon-aid, president of the conference, who has been working night and day to save the parley from collapse, was Jubilant when the news was rushed to mm. The Franco-American agreement was reached at a meeting attended k fey. James M. Cox, American delegate; James P. Warburg, American technical expert, and Finance Minister Georges Bonnet of France. Cox 'Lays Cards On Table" The stroke of master diplomacy In effecting the Franco-American approachment was described as having been accomplished when Mr. Cox cast aside all traditional diplomatic tactics and laid his cards on the table regarding the American position.

J., June 22 W A 15-pound bomb containing what explosive experts at the Du Pont factory at Pompton Lakes described as "the most deadly ex-ploive in the world" was found to day attached to the automobile of Representative Charles A. Eaton of the Fifth Congressional District. State police of the Morristown barracks, who took the bomb to the du Pont plant, reported its deadly composition to Representative Ea' ton at his estate in the Watchung Mountains. When the bomb was found by Joseph Balent, an employe, Eaton was uncertain whether It was real or merely the work of a practical Joker. "If it he a bomb " he nlrl "T fpel It Wks not directed against me so much as against the United States Government." The Congressman returned to his home after midnight from a speak lng engagement at Lake Hopatcong. Several hours later Balent was awakened by a noise In the combination garage and barn. He thought the noise might have been made by a norse and he arose to investigate. On the floor of the garage near the door and between two automo biles he saw an unsmoked cigar. stooping to pick it up he saw a five cent piece and another cigar under a new sedan Eaton bought recently in Washington. Bomb tinder Hood From the front of the car dangled a piece of wire. Balent opened the hood and saw the object believed to be a bomb. It appeared to have been made from part of a compression pump and was about 12 Inches long and five Inches In dttmeter. Balent ripped the object rom the car, wire and all, and so later was not able to say to what part of the motor the wire was attached. He doused It In a nail of water. He wakened Representative Eaton and notified the local police, who in turn notified Sergt. A. H. Al-bracht of the State Police. Albracht took the contraption to the State Police barracks at Morristown for analysis. He said that if it contained a high explosive the size of it would have assured widespread destruction wherever It exploded. Eaton said that to his knowledge he has no enemies. He has received no threatening letters. Helen Hicks Meets Mrs. Lake in Final By RALPH TROST Staff Corrspondent of The Eagle Women's National Golf and Tennis Club, Glen Head, L. I., June 22 For the fifth time Miss Helen Hicks Is a finalist In the Long Island women's golf championship.

Mitchell himself took his seat at the counsel table with a grim expression on his face. The Jurors had their hats in their hands and personal belongings in brief cases as they filled the Jury box. The attendant called the roll and then asked the question: "Gentlemen of the Jury, hava you arrived at a verdict?" James K. Campbell, foreman, answered, "We have." "What is your verdict?" "With respect to both Indictments we find the defendant not guilty." Mitchell Thanks Jurors Newspapermen rushed from ths room to send out the news. Mitchell, his face a deep red. leaned forward, placed his hands on the shoulders of his attorney, Max D. Steuer. After a few moments he smiled. After the Jurors had filed out Mitchell made his way to Judg Ooddard's chambers, where he shook hands with each Juror In turn and to each said, "Thank you." It was only after he had time to recover from the first startling effects of the verdict that Mitchell seized Steuer's hand, shook it vigorously and threw one arm around the attorney's shoulders. What the two men said to each other was drowned out by the hubbub around them. The courtroom had suddenly been turned into a handshaking circus. Mitchell shook hands not only with his own counsel but with United States Attorney Oeorge Z. Medalle, the prosecutor; with Assistant U. S. Attorney Thomas E.

Central Bank Being Planned Savings Slale Glass Institutions in Move to Get Act Protection A central bank designed alone the lines of a trust company will be or ganized by savings banks in New York State in the near future through which the savings Institutions will receive full benefits of the deposit Insurance provisions of the Glass-Steagall Banking bill, without becoming members of the Federal Rcsere system themseles, The Eagle learned today on excellent authority. Announcement of the Central Bank's formation, anticipated with in the next 10 days, is expected to coincide with a further announcement that the restrictions placed on withdrawals from savings banks, following the bank holiday, have been lifted. These restrictions for bid any savings bank in the State from paying out more than $250 weekly on accounts excepting under unusual circumstances. Oppose Withdrawal Limit Since the bank holiday most sav ings banks have attained an usually high degree of liquidity and have been further strengthened in many Instances by substantially Increased deposits, under these circumstances, many savings bank heads are anxious to have the deposit withdrawal limitations abolished as they claim there is no further need for them. Creation of the central bank, which, it is reported, will become a member of the Federal Resere system, will automatically prolde for the guaranteeing of saings bank deposits. At the same time the bank will make it unnecessary for saings Institutions to take out ln-diidual membership in the Resere a step which many saings bank men feel would be of little benefit other than from the standpoint of insuring deposit.
