Is British-French Adjustment New
Plan to Embarrass United States?
From the Kansas City Star
France, with British co-operation, has taken the first step to
learn the best possible terms it can get on its debt to the United
States. That is the meaning of the French-British agreement' ar--*
rived' at .'recently.
The French government owes us $4,000,000,000. It doe6
not propose to pay any of the principal on this debt. It does not
propose to pay even the interest. It proposes to pay a little less
than half the interest for 60 years.
The American taxpayers would be expected to take care of in
terest amounting to about $90,000,000 a year, and the full amount
of the $4,000,000,000 of principal. This in brief is the proposal
made under cover of the British agreement.
The reasons why the offer was made under cover are appar
ent. Britain has agreed to the terms proposed. If the United
States fails to agree—although its debt status is wholly different
from that of Britain—this country can be held up to the world as
a cruel Shylock, demanding its pound of flesh. This moral pres
sure is expected to hold down the American demands even if the
present offer is refused. Britain tried the same thing through
Lord Balfour’s famous note of August 1, 1922, when he suggested
that his government would be glad to cancel debts if only America
would cancel the British obligations.
Britain was glad to lend its co-operation to the French scheme
because in the first place it had virtually abandoned hope of coL
lecting anything from France, and in the second place there was a
bare possibility of using any concession from America to France
as the basis for an appeal for a revision of" the British debt settle
Altogether it apparently struck both the French and British
negotiators as a pretty slick maneuver. Pretty slick. But it won’t
get them anywhere.
As has been said, the position of the United States in the war
was wholly different from that of England and France. The na
tional existence of those two nations was threatened. They made
common cause in a desperate struggle in which for a long time
France furnished the men and Britain mads up with money for its
lack of trained men. On the successful outcome both profited
enormously. France won back national security and the rich pro
vinces of Alsace and Lorraine. Britain won an enormous colonial
empire and got rid of the menacing German fleet.
The interest of the United States was much more remote. It
had had nothing to do with the conditions that finally brought on
the war. It did not seek to profit in any degree by the outcome.
When someone you love
Has been away
And comes back home to you,
You wa'k ’neath the stars
In the dewy dark
And a winged prayer,
Like a singing lark
Mounts up—unto the blue.
In wonderment,
With grateful heart—
"I come, dear Lord, to Thee—
For Thou hast brought my own—
Back nome—
Safe home again to me.
—Neva Lavelle Wadhains.
Economic Recovery in Europe,
From Bache Review.
Measured by strict economic
standards and comparing the situ
ation from year to year, enough defi
nite progress has been made in Eu
rope to warrant optimism as to final
quite substantial recovery. It is
true that the financial conditions in
some countries are still matter for
apprehension, but a,i the latest Bul
letin of the International Chamber
of Commerce says, or quotes, “if
people judged each other wholly by
their shortcomings instead of by
i their virtues, no one would have any
friends,” and this principle applies
Blonds Dying Out in England.
From the Youth’s Companion.
An authority on cultural anthro
pology says that In the great urban
centers of Great Britain the tall
blonds are dying out and are being
replaced by short, dark-haired and
brown-eyed people. The Nordic
blond seems to thrive best in the
country, and the dark peoples do best
in the cities. The 'anthropologist
predicts that, if England continues
to become more and more urban,
Alpine and Mediterranean folk will
predominate, as Urey did centuries
equally to countries. The Interna
tional Chamber of Commerce is
about to publish a digest, In detail,
of what the belligerent countries of
the great war have accomplished in
economic restoration. Briefly, the
digest shows that five of these coun
tries have regained sufficient con
trol of their finances to create or re
organize Independent Banks of Is
sue, freo from all political influences,
and have ceased currency infla
These countries are Austria, Po

In Great Britain, Sweden, Switzer

has returr.ed to par. In Germany,
Austria, Hungary and Poland, the
currency appears to have been stabil
ized definitely,#:>nd in Germany rests
upon what is practically a gold basis.

every country in Europe has Im
proved, and in a number of coun

Canadian Farmer* Anti-Tariff.
From the Christian Science Monitor.
Another change in the political
oomplexion of a Canadian provincial
government has resulted from the
elections in New Brunswick, where
the conservative party, under the
leadership of J. B. M. Baxter, ha*
won a sweeping victory over the lib
erals, who have held office for eight
-^•ears. As in h ,va Scotia, there was
only a slight attempt to Introduce
dominion partisan politic* into the
“contest, which was conducted almoBt
entirely upon issues of provincial af
fairs, combined with the usual
"charges of extravagance and Incom
petence that are always urged
against the party in power. The chief
point of controversy was over the
development of the Grand Falls wa
ter power, the plan put forward by
the liberal government being de
nounced by the conservatives a* un
wise, and likely to result in a bur
den of debt *oo great for the taxpay
ers to assume. That the electorate
has voted the government out does
not necessarily mean, however, that
this great project, and other water
power developments, will be aban
doned, as the Incoming party la
pledged to aid in utilizing the coun
trys’ rivers by all practical methods.
The defeat of the liberal party,
taken in connection with the reverses
in Ontario, Nova Scotia and Prince
Edward Island, may have a highly
significant bearing upon the proba
bilities of a conservative victory in
the coming election of the dominion
house of commons. It is expected
that the prime minister, W. L>. Mac
kenzie King, will shortly set a date
for this election at some time this
year, and the conservatives arc high
ly confident that they will secure a
majority, or at least a sufficient
number of members to give them the
government. The present administra
tion exists only by sufferance of the
farmer contingent in the house, and
if the conservatives are able to make
substantial gains, the farmer repre
sentatives may decide to withhold
their support from the liberals. Since
practically all the farmer members
are pledged to the policy of tariff
reduction, and the establishment of
closer trade relations with the United
States, a direct alliance with the
high-protection conservatives la im
probable, and it is conceivable that
in event of an effort being made to
Increase taxes on imports, a combina
tion might be effected that would
make it impossible for a conservative
government to carry out a higher
tariff program. _
Rotor Ship Is for Sale.
From the Pathfinder.
FOR SALE—Flettner rotor ship
Buokau, 600 tons, steel built 1921.
Flettner rotors installed 1924, subse
quently charged to accommodate
about 500 sightseers. On account of
world-wide interest which the inven
tion of the Flettner rotor has at
tracted, this vessell is considered of
tremendus advertising value.
The above advertisement recently
appeared in a New York paper. It
writes the last chapter In the story
of an invention that not long ago
attracted world-wide attention. After
many tests, the practicability of the
Flettner rotor has been disproved
and the object of so much publicity
has degenarated into a pleasure
craft for advertising purposes. The
wind driven revolving masts do not
give the boat a speed that will enable
it to compete with ordinary sail
The Buckau at present Is cruising '
in the Baltic for publicity purposes.
It carries passengers who want go
pay for the novelty of riding on the
odd craft. Not long ago the ship
was driven away from in front of
the royal palace at Stockholm where
it ran as an excursion boat until its
Jazz band and beer taps proved too
great a nuisance.

Chinese Boy Scout
Won Courage Badge
Tlie Bronze cross, highest award
of honor granted by the British Boy
Scouts association, was recently post
humously presented to a member who
sacrificed his life In an attempt to
save the life of Ills father.
The story of the boy’s courageous
net follows: “Early this year the
home of Scout Fred Gsell of the First
Tientsin (China) troop of hoy scouts
caught fire. Gsell’* father and mother
were asleep when the boy raised the
alarm. The mother escaped through
a bedroom window onto the garden
wall. The scout could have followed,
hut would not desert his father, who,
lie saw, was stupefied and unable to
move. The scout could not lift his
helpless parent, and refused to leave
him. When the firemen entered the
building they picked up tbe dead body
of the father and the living hut un
conscious body of the scout himself.
The hoy, however, was dead when he
reached the hospital."
