DELADIER SAYS FRANCE WANTS BINDING GUARANTEES ('Mercury' Service) PARIS, December 29; 'This French and British union is open to all, but I state categorically that without material and binding guarantees France will not lay down hw arms,' said the French Premier, ' M. Daladisr, in the Senate in the course of a speech punctuat ed by wild cheering. 'Just as 1 distrust the grand theoretical conceptions, I prefer ma terial guarantees against the return of events such as those from which we are suffering. So, too, I can con ceive a now Europe that should have wider organisation. 'It will be necessary to extend it, of course, and perhaps to make some new European States.

MARSHAL GOERING Absence From Functions GENERAL COMMENT LONDON, Dec. 29. The absence, of Field-Marshal Go erlng from all German Christmas fes tivities-has aroused general com ment. Herr Hitler and the Commander-in- 1 Chief of the German Army, General von Brauchitsch, visited the front, and Herr Hess, the Fuehrer's deputy, and the Minister for Propaganda, Dr. Goebbels, made speeches at Christ mas functions, while most of the other Nazis made public appearances; but Pield-Marslial Goering failed to turn up eve.i at the traditional poor child ren's party in Berlin, at whiqh he is generally most prominent. Observing that Field-Marshal Goer ing is a pastmaster af compromise, some commentators declare that he is holding aloof from violent discussions, which, it is believed, are raging be tween the Reich and the Services concerning Soviet relations, to avoid a personal expression of opinion. Others declare that he is in enforced obscurity because ot a quarrel with Hitler. In any case, the c...
