CASH CRISIS THREATENED IN ST. JOHNS Bankers Refuse to Underwrite Deficit of Newfoundland. ST. JOHNS, Newfoundland. May 25—(UP)—The government of Newfoundland, faced with a grave financial crisis, endeavored tonight to ward off default on national bonds. The most critical period of the present difficulty—due to failure to obtain an underwriter for the Newfoundland $8,000,000 five per cent untaxable loan — appeared to be scheduled for tomorrow, when banks will re-open after a holiday. Premier Sir Richard Squires and the finance ministry were w-orking determinedly to avert a more serious situation. but there was considerable nervousness among the public, where It was generally believed that only the aid of the British government could end the crisis. Interjratcrnity Managers Asked To Meet at Noon Athletic managers front all so-clal fraternities are requested to meet in room 322 Student Union today at noon for an important meeting of the Inter-fraternity athletic committee, according to Bud Medbery, chairman, and Andy Anderson. director of intramural sports. Many of the difficulties of the past semester arising from intra mural sports are to be settled at this time and new business pertaining to the program for next semester is to be discussed. “it is very Important that all social fraternities be represented at this meeting as several of them will be involved in the disputes which are to be brought up, and failure of a house to be represented will almost automatically deride the dispute In favor of the house that Is represented,” stated Medbery.

Martin Malone is president of the active cliaptei, Francis Tap paan Is vice-president, and Clifford Twably I* secretary. Judge Crail Tappaan, father of the vice- president, was thc founder. Eligibility includes one year of service in such activities as class office, editorial work on the Southern California Law Review and high scholarship. Skull and Scales members also sponsor aud promote the honor system among law studenis, and hold class elections according to strict rules and regulations. Judges, attorneys, and lawyers now active are members ot the collegiate legal bod). Canada. Bids were invited four weeks ago but there were no responses —an unprecedented event in history of Newfoundland's self-government. The closing of lenders for the loan on May 22 resulted in the sending of notice to the Ministry of Finance that no banker had bid for the loan. The next morning thc bank of Montreal declined to accept the government’s checks. The first check was for the railway and dock laborers payroll, amounting to more than $500. ACCOUNT OVERDRAWN Later the government's current account with the bank of Montreal, the official bank, was overdrawn by about $1,250,000. Government checks were refused by the trade on Saturday. After a confernce between the Premier and the Minister of Finance, Instructions were Issued to governmemnt departments to discontinue issuance of checks until further notice. The result was an intensification of consternation among the public. The gravity of the situation caused considerable fear that the i re-openlng of the government savings bank and other banks tomorrow — today was a holiday —would result in runs. CALM FEARS The breathing spell afforded the government today, however, permitted an opportunity to calm Ihe fears of the public and to push efforts for solution of the problem. The most serious phase was that half of the yearly interest of $1,387,00*) due on the government’ bonds on June 30 had not been provided for. Default of this payment appeared to be Inevitable unless the British go\ ern* » hlcb did not seem likely in the immediate future although such aid might be forthcoming later.
