SPEECH President ( alls for Co-operation in Drive to Stabilize Currency Says World Should Be Freed From the Sore Burden of Armaments WASHINGTON, Feb. 14— GNS)— A call for cooperation in a drive to stabilize currencies as the only way to avoid economic ruin. stood as the final public utterance of President Hoover to the American people today. Speaking as the nead of his party, the man whose administration coined the phrase “prosperity is just around the corner" warned an economic war impends “which threatens to engulf the world." Addressing the Lincoln Day conclave of the National Republican Club in New York, he told his colleagues to forget political affiliations and pull A ith the Democratic regime in every constructive remedy. Mr. Hoover expressed confidence the Republicans would be returned to power, but added the present was no time to think of political advantage. The p'’dress sounded the basic note that W' o currencies must be stabilized tnrough return to and maintenance of some sort of a gold standard. Mr. Hoover recommended at the same time an endeavor to find a place for silver in enlarged subsidiary coinage, but with gold the basic standard. President Hoover said in part: “It is a pleasure for me to address you upon the day when this club and our countrymen of all faiths throughout the land are paying tribute to the memory of Abraham Lincoln, We tonight also play tribute to him as founder of the Republican party and the inspirer of its ideals. He, more than any other man. created the living, virile organization which has given responsible interpretation of those ideals to our people in each succeeding generation. An organization that can show more than 15,000.000 adherents after 70 years is indeed testimony to the virility of the principles which Lincoln enunciated. “Those principles, the fiber and the determination of the party assure that it will be recalled to power by the American people. “The people determined the election. Those of us who believe in the most basic principle insisted upon by Abraham Lincoln—the transcendent importance of popular government— have no complaint.. We accept and, as Americans, will continue whole-heartedly to do our part in promoting the well-being of the country. Our party ran truly* feel that we have held the faith; that we shall do so in the future is our solemn responsibility. “The Republican party will sup- Continued on Last Page CHILA HANK BANDITS SCARED BY SHOTS A gang of armed bandits that attempted to hold up a branch of the Sixth National Bank in Philadelphia, shortly before noon today were frightened off when a guard on the balcony opened fire.

Some persons also were hurt in falls. Of the more serious accidents, Henry Dudley, of 245 East Fourth street, slipped on the icy covered pavement near his home and in falling landed on his right .shoulder., causing a fracture of the shoulder blade He was taken to the Chester Hospital by friends, where the shoulder was set in place.

Issued an interpretative ruling designed to soften somewhat the effect of his proclamation The Governor's interpretative ruling said his earlier edict, calling for the closing of the State’s 500 banks and trust companies for eight days, beginning todav, was “a permissive” proclamation, and not a mandatory order. Banks may reopen “to whatever extent seems wise," the Governor said in his interpretative ruling. “I expect that some of the banks will work out a plan for taking care of small payrolls and checks within a day or two.” in accordance with this ruling the Upper Peninsula's 50 banks opened for business, relieving the pressure on the northern part of the State. Virtually all banks in the Lower Peninsula remained closed, however. Wielding the power of a dictator, ti governor, to save the State from financial chaos, tied up approx-! imately $1,200,000,000 by his proclamation. It was a choice, he declared, between closing all banks or allowing one of Detroit’s largest financial institutions to fall. “Then.” he said, “ we might have seen banks toppling like dominoes.” The week's legal holiday, which amounts to a banking moratorium seven business days, was declared early today after all night conferences between Governor William A Comstock, state and city banking authorities. Secretary of Commerce Roy Chapin, and representatives of the United States Treasury and the Federal Reserve Bank. Representatives of the Reconstruction Finance Corp. also attended the conference. The R F. C. has loans outstanding to several Michigan banks. The proclamation of a legal holiday was an adaption of the technique used in Louisiana recently when a one-day special holiday was declared after heavy withdrawals started on a bank there. Immediate necessity for the mora-, torium was created by an acute condition in the affairs of the Union Guardian Trust Company, Gov. Comstock said. He said he war, Informed that as matters stood, it would have been necessary to have closed the doors of that institution today. The Union Guardian Trust Company has been a heavy borrower from the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. Inability of the Union Guardian to realize on its assets quickly, to meet demands for withdrawals existing and anticipated, created the emergency, bank officials disclosed.
