Churchill Joins Dalfon
In Demanding Slash in Britain's War Debts Sptciol Dispatch to The Star LONDON, May β. — Winston Churchill joined Chancellor of the Exchequer Hugh Dalton today In demanding "a downward revision of Great Britain's war debts. Why, he asked in a speech, should Britain "be the only debtor country in the world while those she had rescued and those she had conquered go into the future without having to drag the terrible chain of war debts behind them?" Debt ToUb $16,856,MO,OM. Mr. Dalton keynoted the govern ment drive for a reduction of British foreign obligations, calling for a scaling down of British war debts in * speech Tuesday night, sterling balances piled up by credi tor nations in Britain during the war are estimated at $16,856,000,000. Mr. Churchill spoke in a ceremony at which he received the freedom of the city of Darlington and called for a settlement of British war ob ligations along the line of lend lease. The wartime Prime Minister said: "When I consider how we de jenaea ana rescued uiese cuuuuiea, I certainly feel that the question of settlement of these war obligations, which are quite different from com mercial transactions, should be brought into the general line of lend-lease, that great idea of Presi dent Roosevelt, the most unsordld act which history records, whereby all in the war together share suf ferings and burdens and go equally Into the sunlight at the end." First Blow In "Tough" Policy. Britain's bold declaration that she will not pay in full her war-born debts is the first blow in a new "tough" financial policy, highly placed sources said yesterday. The dollar total of Britain's debt is important because the American loan with which Britain Is trying to regain her economic equilibrium caused Mr. Dalton to •peak out. Under the loan terms, Britain must make some move to ward debt settlement by July 15. V. 8. Suggested Scaling Down. In making the loan, the United States sugested that Britain get its creditors to scale down their claims. The United States itself holds Britain to no war debt. That was all settled under lend-lease and Mr. Dalton himself said that if other creditors had operated during the war on the Anglo-American plan, Britain would · not have the debt burden to wrestle with today. "Dalton's speech may be con sidered the opening shot in a cam paign to have Britain's sterling bal ances reduced." an official source said. "It is intended as a warning that Britain plans to be tough in her negotiations. Brazilians Hear Declaration. "Britain Is not prepared to regard all her sterling balances as they •tand at the present time as a' genuine measure οι ner lnaeoiea ness." Mr. Dalton made his declaration At a meeting of the Brazilian Cham ber of Commerce. Britain owes Brazil 65 million pounds ($260,000, 000). Negotiations for settlement of this debt are now under way here and are not moving too smoothly. But observers said Mr. Dalton was not speaking merely for the benefit of the South Americans. His speech was aimed also at bigger creditors— gpecifically India and Egypt. Britain owes India 1,200 million pounds <$4,800,000,000). It owes Egypt 440 million pounds ($1,760, 000,000). Both India and Egypt, in preliminary fiscal talks, have re fused to scale down these debts.

Wisconsin Widening Project Is Delayed Work on the widening of Wis consin avenue, north of East-West' highway, cannot be started before September I, County Commissioner Weslev I. Sauter said, after a con-! ference in Baltimore yesterday with' State road officials. There are still some legal tech nicalities to be worked out in con-, nection with rights of way. A 72-foot wide, six-lane road, with ft center safety zone, is contem plated.

Articles such as gas masks, gloves, books and electrical equipment were rot ting or rusting or simply covered with fungus on benches. Some were falling apart from decay. The mast spectacular part of the show was a demonstration of a heli copter which descended to the fort's airfield to place lengths of pipe on the ground and unreel rubber hose.

May 8.—Legis lation enacted by the 1947 General Assembly to extend Montgomery County's powers and authorizing varied forms of gambling for rev enue purposes in six counties waβ killed yesterday by Gov. Lane's veto. The vetoed measures were in cluded in 72 acts remaining from the recent Legislature. The Governor vetoed a bill to per mit the Montgomery County com missioners to impose a tax up to 5 per cent on residential and commer cial rents, sponsored by the all Republican county delegation. He also vetoed a Montgomery County bill authorizing the com missioners to assume all the taxing powers now vested in the State. This would have permitted the levying of a county income and corpora tion tax. Another measure killed would have permitted pari-mutuel betting on midget auto races in Prince Georges County. School Bus Bill Signed. Gov. Lane signed a measure to permit Prince Georges County chil dren attending nonprofit schools to ride public school buses. The measure, similar to laws per mitting such rides in other coun ties, was opposed on the ground it was a violation of the principle of the separation of church and State. Proponents, however, said it was simply a local problem being solved on a democratic and just basis. Yesterday's action completed the work of the State's first postwar General Assembly, which passed 1,013 of the 1,418 bills introduced. Gov. Lane signed 927 of the acts. Most of the bills approved were local in nature. Principal measures signed in cluded one outlining the authority of a State aviation commission, giving it the power to approve use of Federal funds, except where lo cal commissions exist.

In addition, she said, girls willing ly accept discipline as cadets. "And not the least important Is their improved posture—which all the teachers at Roosevelt have commented about," she added. Lt.

Bronchial Pneumonia Fatal to Owner of Big London Store By th· Associated Ργμι LONDON, May 8.—H. Gordon Sel fridge, 90, who brought American I merchandising methods to Britain. ! died at his Putney home today of bronchial pneumonia. Mr. Selfridge, a native of Wis consin, began his spectacular busi ness career with Chicago's Marshall Field & Co., and retired with a for tune in less than 25 years. He re sumed his career in London with a store which became the largest in all Europe. Mr. Selfridge joined Marshall Field's at the age of 22 and advanced until he had an interest in the firm. In 1904 he retired, but later the same year bought out the Chicago firm of Schlesinger and Mayer, changing its name to H. G. Selfridge Ac (To Hp sold t.hi» enmrmnv short.lv afterward to Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co. In 1906 he caml to London to pur sue his hobbies, collecting art ob jects, reading and traveling. In London the Wisconsin-born merchant organized Selfridge & Co., Ltd., and opened the store in the spring of 1909. The American methods he introduced ran counter to traditional British methods, but the establishment attracted crowds of curious Londoners, and the store became a huge success. Became British Subject. Mr. Selfridge became a British subject in June, 1937, and retired for the last time in 1939. Mr. Selfridge once remarked that he attained business success by a bare quarter of an inch. It was his mother's ambition—and his own at the time—that he go to the United States Naval Academy. A naval doctor rejected him because he was S a quarter of an inch under the mini mum regulation height. For three years after Mr. Selfridge I opened his London store, he had an uphill climb. Frequently his com petitors predicted his efforts to "Americanize" British merchandis ing methods would fail. But the criticism redounded to his benefit as publicity, and Londoners flocked to the only store In which they could buy a pin or a gramophone. A few years later Mr. Selfridge was a lead ing member of the Mercahnts' As sociation, which at first had barred him. Harry Gordon Selfridge was the Marshall Field of London. The anal oev is Darticularlv annronriatp he cause it was from the Chicago mer chant that Mr. Selfridge learned the secrets of merchandising. Later those teachings enabled him to found on American business meth ods the first department store in Europe and eventually to become the greatest merchant prince of Britain, if not the whole of Europe. The death of his father made it necessary for Mr. Selfridge to begin at the age of 10 to help support himself. He worked at various odd jobs until 1879, when he entered the employ of Field, Leiter & Co. in Chicago, which afterward , became Marshall Field & Co." He advanced steadily with the latter firm until he acquired an interest in it and which he dis posed of in 1904. He had made a fortune and intended to retire so that he could enjoy it by indulging in his hobbies of traveling, reading books and collecting art objecte. Fascinated by Business. However, he soon learned that he could not bear to be out of the game, for to the author of "The Romance of Commerce," business always was the most fascinating, romantic and satisfying game in the world. During his travels Mr. Selfridge H. GORDON SELFRIDGE. —AP Wirephoto. visited London and there saw an unusual opportunity for a great, progressive department store, run on American business methods. At the time there existed no such houses in London. Conservative shops, specializing only in particular lines, showed customers what they want ed when they asked for it, but they made no attempt to advertise or display their goods. Nor did they try to tempt people to purchase by allowing them to wander unmolested through the shops and look without obligation at the goods for sale. After three years of preliminary work Mr. Selfridge introduced such American innovations to London when he opened the doors of Sel fridge & Co. to the public on March 15, 1909. Born in Ripon, Wis. Mr. Selfridge was born January 11, 1857, in a small house at Ripon, Wis. His parents, Robert O. and Lois Frances Baxter Selfridge, were of good Yankee stock of Scotch-Irish descent. On his fathers' side, the family for several generations was represented by officers in the United States Navy, several of whom at tained high rank. There was not much money in tlje home and when his mother was left a widow while Gordon was a child, she was obliged to teach in the high school at Jackson, Mich., in order to suDDort herself and her son. The boy atteAded the public schools at Jackson, and it was there during the summer vacations that he helped eke out his mother's meager income by working at· odd jobs. Prophetically enough, his first employment was a cash boy in a dry goods·store at $1.50 a week. He con tinued part time work until he was 14, when he left school for his first job. Was Junior Bank Clerk. He became a Junior bank clerk at Jackson at $20 a month and then a bookkeeper in a factory. It was when the latter position offered no opportunity for advancement that he went to work for Wield, Leiter & Co. On November 11, 1890, Mr. Self ridge married Miss Rose Bucking ham of Chicago. They had three daughters who were married to noblemen, becoming the Princess Wiasemsky, the Viscomtesse Jac ques de Sibour and the Vicomtesse Louis de Sibour. and a son, H. Gor don Selfridge, jr. The latter became associated in the business with his father as general manager of the Selfridge Provincial Stores. The death of Mrs. Selfridge in 1918 was regarded by the merchant as one of the greatest Wows of his life. He also was greatly grieved by the death of his mother, who lived with him and to whom he was tenderly devoted all her life.
