Branch of French “Gibraltar,”
Whose Failure Caused Riots,
Was Planned.
By the Associated Press. •
MONTREAL, February 14 —The Ga
zette says that Serge Stavisky’s huge
pawnshop in Prance blew up just in
time to prevent an affiliated enter
prise from being established in Mon
treal. Financial circles were given as
the source of the paper’s information.
The local venture would have been
connected with the supposedly solid
Bayonne Bank, which failed for about
$40,000,000, causing a cabinet to fall
and leading indirectly to the recent
riots in Paris, the paper said.
’’Clues have been run down.,” it
added, ‘ showing a syndicate here was
proposing to take advantage of the
'Rock of Gibraltar’ reputation of the
Stavisky bank and- to launch here a
pawnshop bank along similar lines.
"Promoters of the proposition are
declared to have been as much
shocked as were the people of Prance
when the scandal broke and Stavisky
committed suicide.”

as a result of a special meeting of
the County School Board held here
for the purpose of discussing budget
ary problems.

little possibility of malting any ma
terial changes. The matter of In

budget, which for the current year
la expected to amount to approx
imately <132.000. was considered at
length by the board.
As a result of a rapidly Increasing
enrollment In the majority of the
schools, the School Board decided
that at least four additional teachers,
three elementary and one high school,
would be necessary next year.
Although called especially as a bud
get meeting, a number of other prob
lems came to the attention of the
board and consumed the greater part
of its time. Representatives of the
Fairfax County Colored Citizens’ As
sociation appeared and requested that
provision be made to provide Instruc
tion beyond the elementary grade
level for colored children. The board
decided to withhold any decision on
the matter for the time being.

Anarchist Leader Says General

By the Associated Press,
NEW YORK, February 14 —Emma
Goldman declared last night she
favored general strikes such as those
in Austria and France as “the only
means of spreading the anarchist Ideal
At the end of the first of a series
of public lectures she Is scheduled to
give during her 90-day stay granted
by Washington, a heckler rose from
the audience and shouted:
“You may have been a sensation
before the war. Emma, but what you
have to say today Is mild.”
The topic of her talk was “Living
My Life," and In It she gave excerpts
from her published memoirs. Not
until questioners arose from the
audience at the end of the lecture did
the anarchist leader, clad In a bro
caded shawl and black dress, talk or
the world today.
“President Roosevelt,” she said
then, “is the first President of the
United States to recognize that the
workers have rights.
"He Is not a Communist nor an
anarchist, of course, but he is a cap
italist who sees the worker, which Is
a rare thing. Indeed. And now It la
up to the workers to retain those
rights which they have been given."

Fascism conquered England, quietly

From the audience came the query,
“Why did you write against the Com

"For the same reason," Miss Gold
