ACKING at this writing an oelal statement of France's intentions, one ctln nnike fl close gnoss by retidilig the inspired articles in the s+mi - official newspapers of Paris, These are thus summarized by a crrespond- eat : "First, the French openly flirt with Germany toward direct negotiations for a solution of the reparations ques- tion, with the exclusion of Great Brlt- aln or any otlmr tr,mblesome power. Second, the French tell he British --and the Americans, to(--la so many words, that the only time they will pay their war debts due is after Germany pays for the reconstruction of the war devastations and pays in addition the amounts due from France to London and Washington. Third, repulsing the Curzon sugges- tion to refer tile Ruhr occupation to the world court, the French inthnate that they might ask The Hague to de- cide whether tile Versailles treaty pro- vides that all reparations must be paid before tile lnterallled debts are recov- ered and whether President Wllson's 14 points provide that the allies' pen- sions are among the obligations which Germany must assume. If all conciliatory plans fall, Pre- mier Polncare will continue the occu- pation of tile Ruhr with Increased vigor and if necessary will seize the valley of the Main with Frankfort and other cities in that rici reghm. This would practically cut Germany in two. OREIGN MINISTER CCRZON'S note to France and Belgium, whlch possibly brought the France-British entente to an end. said Great Britain was tired of diplomatic exchanges and want.ed immediate action; that she be- lieved the occupation of the Ruhr t be Illegal and would submit that ques- tion to the world court; mad that France must repay to Great Britain enough of the money lent her to en- tble Iritaln. with what she may re- ceive from Germany, to pay tmr debt to the United States. The note con- eluded with a definite tlreat to take action for a separate settlement with Germany. France is insulted by Curzon's clauses on the interaIlied debts, assert- ing that she never had the slightest intention of repudiating her debts to England and America. She points out that the Ruhr occupation was first suggested by England less than two years ago, was Justified by Sir Robert tIorne in the 4muse of commons Oc- tober 29, 1920, and was authorized by the reparations comnflssion by a vote of three to one. Regarding the allies" debts, the lournal des Debars polnLu out that Great Britain wants only 14,000,000,- 000 gold marks ($3,500,000,000) to pity the United States+ and as she is entitled to 22 per cent of the 50,000,- 000,000 godd marks ($12,500,000,000) A and B series bonds, this leaves a balance of only 3,000,000,000 gold marks ($750,000,000), "and there is certainly some means to arrange that, about whlit we can talk later." RESIDENT COOLIDGE and hLs cabinet met Tuesday and dis- cussed many of the important ques- tions confronting them. It was then announced from the White House again that the President's policies would be the same as those of Pres- ident Harding, and his views on vari- ous questions were given in pmre de- tall. Summarizing some of these, it Is ated that the administration tanda ready to eb-operate qth Eu- rope In working out a solution of the reparations question, if it can do so without involving the United States, but it has no concrete proposal to make at this time; that it will pro- ceed with effort.s to collect the debts owed America by foreign govern- meats: tlmt the President and secre- ta' of agriculture are sympathetfcal- y studying many suggestions for leg- Islation to help the farmer; that the determination of the adnflnlstratlon to enforce strictest econonly cannot be stated too strongN and the budget system will I)e scrupuhmsly followed; that the President favors the iu)llcy of admitting only the better class of immigrants and will study plans sub- mitted by Secretary of Labor Davis. Mr. Coflldge sees no need now for an extra seslon of congress. ONFIDENCE  and decision have taken the place of the former ap- parent shyness of President Ooolldge, and Washington officialdom is pleased lwith the vigorous way In which he Is tackling his tasks. Politicians give him first l)lace in tile list of aspirants for the Repu/)lican presidential nom- Inathm next year. Last week he held conferences with a number of Repub- iitul leaders from Southern states, and there were signs that the South- ern delegate support was driftin his way. In line with this was Mr. Cool- idge's appointment of C. Bascom Slomp as secretary to the President. Mr. Slemp was fornmrty a congres nmn a-ore Virginia and has long been one of the most important lPpublto- arts of the South. The Democratic na. tlonal co,mnlttee promptly character- Ized the appointment as "the first step to round up Southern delegates" for Coolidge, and then went on to at- tack Slemp, asserting that he was "exposed on the floor of the house De- cember 15, 19"22, in connection with the alleged trafficking in offices by Re- pubIicans In Southern states." FFORTS of the administration to prevent the suspension of anthra- cite coal mining after September 1 have not yet met with success. With the approval of President Coolidge, the federal coal commission head- ed by John Hays Hammond invited the representatives of tile operators and miners to meet it in con- ference in New York dry. Accord- ingly' the sub-scale committee, four men from each side, joined the board members in discussing the questions at issue. Tile miners proposed to abandon their denmnd for the "check-off" of union dues if the op- erators would cease their practice of collecting explosive and fuel accounts by the same method. To this the op- erators agreed, but with conditions at which the miners balked. Mr. Ham- mond said "frankly, the outlook is dis- couraglng." Meanwhile other government depart- ments are preparing for a possible strike. OHN BARTON PAYNE and Charles B. Warren, representatives of the United States in the prerecognition conference in Mexico City, have con- eluded their task satisfactorily and by this thne are back in WaMllngton with the signed records of the ses- sions. These c)mprlse the two claims conventions and the Mexican govern- meat's interpretation of the bearin'g of the subsoil petroleum and agrarian laws on American property in Mexico. It is believed the agreements reached by Payne and Warren with the Mexi- can representatives will be acceptable to the American administration and that the resumption of diplomatic re- lations will so)n follow. An agree- mere was made to have the president of the permanent court of lnterna- tlonai Justice at The Hague appoint neutral umpires for the United States and Mexican slalom commissions, which are to tie createl through the revolutionary and mixed claims con- ventions, if and after diplomatic rela- tions are resumed. HE gasoline price war which Gov- ernor MeMaster started In South Dakota where the state placed the fuel on sale at 16 cents began to spread to other states in the Middle West and resulted In the Standard Oil company of Indiana, meeting the cut, though it protested that the price was below the cost of produc- tion. Other concerns followed suit and the consumers were comparatix- l.v happy. In a few days Governr McMaster. after conferring with inde- pendent oil Jobbers, raised the price In South Dakota to 20 cents, "so the prevailing price would hae the same relative reduction as in other states." The war is still going on, and it may tie tile federal government will take a hand. 0 NE hundred and thirty-eight men were entombed in a coal mine at Kemmerer, Wyo., by an exploslon about 1,700 feet-below the surface. and despite tile frantic efforts of res- cue workers 98 of them perished. AMON DE VALERA, the Irish Free State's chief thorn-In-the- flesh, was becoming altogether too ac- tlw in tlle campaign for the election s(m to be held. so government troops grabbed him while he was addressing a big meeOng of republicans at Ennls, County Clare. and locked him up. He probably will be kept In Jail in Dublin until the country is more peaceful. rlod the bird used these curious claws as a minor means of defense. These odd-looking claws were inherited from his reptilian ancestors. For the most part the ostrich does his fighting with his feet, and the ma- ture bird Is able to deliver as power- ful a kick as a heavy horse or mule. It is a rilng, tearing blow that the ostrtch'rikes, which often reault fatally to vleth access to Juicy fruits or vegetable& l'ecu]larty enough, the ostrich can roar as loud as a lion, due to au un- usual arrangement of the vocal chords. The bird generally contents himself with bissing like an alligator when he Is enraged, and his hiss Is a sign of danger. The Tree of Life.
