French Want Neideckers
and Coles for Trial in
Bank Failure.
By the Associated Press.
Police Commissioner Valentine of
New York City and representatives of
the French government yesterday
asked the Supreme Court for the
right to return B. Coles, George W.
end Aubrey Neidecker to France to
face charges in connection with fail
ure of their Travellers Bank in Paris.
Attorneys for Valentine and Charles
De Ferry De Font Nouvelle, consul
general of the French republic, ap
pealed from a ruling last January 20
by the Second Circuit Court of Ap
peals. which freed the Neideckers.
The Circuit Court allowed them to
avoid return to France by interpret
ing a section of the 1909 Franco
American extradition treaty. This
provided for exchange of persons
wanted by the two governments for
certain alleged crimes, but added
neither of the governments "shall be
bound to surrender its own citizens.”
The French government representa
tive and Black told the Supreme
Court that if this opinion was cor
rect "an American citizen is free to
commit in France all the crimes on
the calendar; and if he wants to suc
ceed in escaping to the United States
no power on earth can punish him.”
The Neideckers. brothers and na
tive-born Americans, were described
as having “fled” to the United States
after their Paris bank "closed its
doors.” On arrival here they were
arrested by the New York police un

British advisers said Eden expected
that the present exchange of views
and two days of reflection would con
vince the French that they should
proceed cautiously in the demand for
, sanctions against Germany which
might lead to war.
Gen. Louis Felix Maurin. minister
cf war, presented a report to the gen
eral staff last night showing that if
more military classes were recalled to
the colors that they, with the present
troops, would form an army of 1,000,
000 men. which could take and hold
the Rhineland.
This theory was based on the
premise that it be done immediately
before the Germans were thoroughly
French Army Prepared.
The general staff was understood to
contend that the Germany Army was
still unprepared while the French
Army was at its best. An authorita
tive source said the general officers
stated that, if there must be war,
they preferred to have it now rather
than a year or two hence, when Ger
many would be fully ready.
Ambassador Cerruti and his few
Italian advisers did little more than
listen during the conference discus
The Italian envoy was in a difficult
position of desiring to side with France
but being unable to advocate the
withdrawal of troops from the Rhine
land before negotiations since the same
reasoning would require Italy to re
move its troops from Ethiopia before
peace talks through the League could
be begun.
An official communique, after listing
the delegates, said that Flandin “made

"go the limit,” informed sources re
ported. in backing the French demand
that, Britain take a stronger stand
against the third Reich.
French readiness to move for an
easing of sanctions against Italy, and
possibly for League reconsideration of
whether Italy was the aggressor in
Ethiopia, brought the aid of Italian
Ambassador Cerruti for the campaign.
Frankly dismayed by Eden's an
nouncement to the House of Commons
yesterday of his government's desire to

French officials considered the chances
of changing Britain's attitude to be

Calls Confidence Vote.
At the same time, Premier Sarraut
called for a manifestation of Frencn
"National Union” in the crisis, through
a vote of confidence from the Chamber
of Deputies.
The Senate Foreign Affairs Com
mittee adopted virtually unanimously
a report recommending ratification by
the higher House of the Franco-Soviet
mutual assistance pact—the treaty
which Hitler interpreted as directed
against Germany and on which he
justified his Locarno violation.
Britain’s “desertion” of France
strengthened the Senators’ enthusiasm
for the accord with Russia. They
argued that if British aid was uncer
tain, France must perfect her ring
around the Reich.
Government leaders predicted a
greater majority ior approval or me

coming if Hitler had not denounced
the Locarno pact, or if Britain had
supported the French desire to “go the
limit” against Germany.
Sarraut Victory Seen.
Ministers said Premier Sarraut, go
ing before the chamber to make a
government declaration and gain a
vote of confidence, was certain of a
majority in the movement to bury
party differences and confront Ger
many with a united France.
When the representatives of Lo
carno signatories met at the Quai
d'Orsay this morning Flandin had the
backing of an aroused France—and
six other nations—in his negotiations
with Eden for British support.
The Polish Ambassador, Dr. Alfred
Chlapowski. assured Flandin in ad
vance that Poland intended to remain
faithful to its obligations under the
Franco-Polish alliance. Russia and
the little entente (Czechoslovakia,
Yugoslavia and Rumania) did like
wise. Italy, too, was with France,
although Premier Mussolini expected
"something”—loosening of sanctions—
for his support.
The only weak link in the line-up
against Germany—and an important
one—was Britain's avowed desire to
negotiate with the Reich, French
officials said.
Conciliation or Force?
The conference of Locarno repre
sentatives hinged on this question—
should the Rhineland be evacuated
and Germany be punished before new
negotiations were undertaken, or
should conciliation be attempted im
In any event, French officials de
clared they were convinced Britain
must mediate between France and

Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden
went to Paris for a conference of rep
I resentatives of signatories of the Lo

tact and persuasion to bear against
the difficult twofold task confronting
1. To cool France's eagerness for

many for its occupation of the Rhine
2. To obtain at least consideration
of Adolf Hitler's proposals for new
pacts, which accompanied his breaking
of the old.

Difference in Situation,

between actual aggression against a
nation, for which Fascist Italy was be

GENEVA, March 10 (A3).—Brisith
Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden's
address to the House of Commons,
setting forth a conciliatory British
stand in the Locarno pact crisis,
created an impression in League of
Nations quarters today that applica
tion of sanctions against Germany
was unlikely.
League officials attributed great im
portance to Eden’s declaration yes
terday that Britain would ‘‘march
with France and Belgium” if Ger
many violated her frontiers, but saw
a tacit warning that Britain would
not approve drastic action for Ger
many’s occupation of the demilitar
ized Rhineland.
This Impression w'as strengthened,
League authorities said, by Eden’s
statement that Britain was not dis
posed to reject summarily Hitler's pro
posals for a new security system after
he broke the Locarno pact and Ver
sailles treaty Saturday by sending his
troops to the left bank of the Rhine.

the Locarno pact were meeting—for
