LAVAL UPHOLDS FRENCH COURSE OH WAR DEBTS Germany Must Pay Before His Nation Can, Asserts Former Premier. BY RICHARD M’MILLAN United Pre Staff Carreapnndrnt (Copyright. 1939. by United Preosi PARIB, Dec. 17.—Prance has the right to withhold war debt pay ments until a world debt confer ence. with both the United States and Germany represented, is called to revise inter-governmental obli gations, Pierre Laval told the United Press in an exclusive inter view today, Laval preceded Herriot as pre mier of Prance. In such conference. Laval said, the United States must agree to reduce her demands on her debtors, and Germany must consent to pay rep arations to whatever extent experts decide she has the capacity. The swart, stock ex-premier, known to Americans by virtue of his vtait in New York and Wash ington in 1331, granted this corre spondent an interview shortly after he had conferred with President Albert Lebrun, to whom he offered advice on the question of naming a new cabinet. Sees Other Crises He told the president that this week’s cabinet crisis probably is the first of several. In view of the diffi culties of the debt situation. He reiterated earlier declarations that, ‘ if I were the only one to vote in the senate, I would vote against payment.” He explained that he remains opposed to payment, either conditional or unconditional, until the United States and all debtor nations meet to re-establish debts on a basis where they can be paid in a “reasonable” number of years, rather than in sixty-two years. “I never have,” Laval said, “agreed to abandon Germany's reparations, without previous agree ment with the United States. I have never gene farther than the Washington communique of Oc tober, 1931, which clearly fixes the debt moratoriums for the period of the economic depression. (The Washington communique was a joint statement of President Hoover Rnd Laval, summing up their con versations at the time of Laval's visit to Washington.) Germany Must Pay "My attitude is not dictated by what happened at my Washington meeting with President Hoover, but by conditions and circumstances which decided the July, 1931, mora torium. “In the Washington communique there was no question of annuling or reducing debts —it merely limits the moratorium to the period of de pression. As chief of the govern ment, I always insisted that France can not pay if France is not paid by Germany. "Today there is no question of annulment, or refusal to pay debts. It is merely a question of suspend ing payments until the impasse is broken by anew agreement, under which France will receive her just damages from Germany, with which she can pay England and the United States.” Laval looks forward to an impor tant debate on debts in the French senate as soon as anew government is Senator Henry Berenger may lead the senate attack against payment, and Laval intends to ex pose in detail the extent of his agreement with President Hoover and the text of the Washington cqmmunique.

RESCUES TRAPPED DOE Caretaker Brave* Thin Ice on Res ervoir to Save Animal. By I nilrtl Prc* COLORADO SPRINGS. Col., Dec. 17.—The duties of a caretaker on a watershed include strenuous tasks. Clyde Mcßeynolds thinks one of the most strenuous is rescuing deer that fall into the reservoir. A young doe wandered out on the thin ice of the reservoir here and fell through. Mcßeynolds saw the animal floundering around, unable to get back onto the ice. He pushed a flat bottomed boat out over the ice, to save himself from going through, and finally managed to herd the deer shoreward, where it reached firm ground and made its way hur riedly into the nearby timber.

How he aronirfd tbl* lore of the aea and Imparted It to hia children la told In the following article, the eighth in a aerie* of twelve about THE RISING ROOSEVELTS. BY PAUL HARRISON NEA Serytee Writer INDELIBLY traced in the story of the rising Roosevelts is a little Island, two miles by ten, in the Bay of Fundy near East port, Me. It is Oampobello, New Bruns wick, and there, in the 1890's, went the late James Roosevelt to find seclusion and intimacy with the sea. There were only a few cottages and one summer hotel on the wind-swept island in those days. James Roosevelt bought a house atop a hill that dipped steeply to the water an eighth of a mile away. It was there that Franklin Roosevelt developed his great love for the sea and transmitted it to his five children. Asa boy, the President-elect learned to handle a sailboat like a down-east fiisherman in the choppy waters about Campobello. It was there that he acquired his early desire to attend Anna polis, an ambition to sail and en couragement of a hobby in col lecting naval prints. Franklin Roosevelt was an ex pert navigator at 18, and in his early 20’s, after he had begun the practice of law in New York, he sometimes cruised up to Campo bello over a long week-end. His mother still recalls how he would leave town on a Thursday at about 4 o'clock, wiring ahead that he would arrive Saturday at 5:30. And. she contends that, despite shifting winds and uncertain cur rents along the Maine coast, he never was more than a half hour early or late! B B B THOSE were some of the tradi tions the younger Roosevelts found themselves facing when they began to accompany their parents to the island retreat during the hottest months of the summers. But possibly because none of the boys showed quite the aptitude that their father had, he did not provide a separate boat for them for several seasons. “You can’t sail a boat,” he said, “until you know everything about boats, and can do everything there is to be done about a boat.” So the youngsters did their sail ing on the family yacht, and worked like common seamen at the reefing and hoisting of sails, ing of decks, of decks. Over and over again they were instructed in the ways of the tides and treacherous currents. And to acquaint them with their nautical fundamentals, the father made model sailboats for them. These were really finished prod ucts of the model-maker's art, and they were large enough for exciting regattes in which the whole family took part. “All the models were made along different lines,” Elliott re called. “And each of us had one that could make a good showing in varying kinds of weather. “There was such keen rivalry among us that when one boat lost consistently father always made another to replace it, and built it in the same design as the most frequent winner.” B B B DURING the eight years that Roosevelt was assistant sec retary of the navy he was unable to spend the usual two whole months with his family in New Brunswick. Fears Birth Control I. U. Research Director Thinks Theory Is Advanced Too Fast. Ry United Press SPRINGFIELD, 111., Dec. 17. Advocates of birth control are ad vancing their theories too rapidly, Dr. Charles P. Emerson, director of research of the Indiana univer sity college of medicine, said here today. Dr. Emerson, who Is attending an annual conference of Illinois health offlcails, declares that "women who should not be af fected by the theory are the ones who are giving it deepest study, while others who should be study ing 4he problem are ignoring it entirely.” “One of the fundamental theo ries of birth contral,” he said, “is the control of feeble minded and mentally unfit per sons from Increasing their num bers.

He frequently went up for short visits, however, and one summer, on the Fourth of July, he made a triumphal appearance at the island on a United States de stroyer. Then, to the delight of every one. it was discovered that hung on the side of the war ves sel was a little knockabout sail boat intended for the children’s use. They called it the Vireo, for the bird by that name. The Vireo was as nearly fool proof as a small boat could be, and there were few duckings in the icy waters about the island. But there was also a sailing ca noe. treacherous in the calmest water and certainly nothing for a youngster to monkey with in the choppy Bay of Fundy. Franklin Roosevelt and his eld est son, Jimmy, decided to try out the sailing canoe one day, and took the younger children’s gov erness along. She was ensconced in the bot tom for ballast. James was at the bow, his father steering at the stern—and they capsized. The water was so cold that It put jv t one thought into James’ and should rear fine children are the very ones who are giving the birth control theory the deepest thought,” he said. “The result will mean the gradual decreasing of their number togeher with the increase of the other group.” BOUNTY RACKET BARED Law Repeal Sought as Thousands Profit on Gopher Catches.

He knew his father would be safe enough. But suddenly he thought of the governess, who was nowhere in Sight! They considered diving for her, which seemed a pretty use less thing to do since no one knew where she might have gone down. And then they discovered that she hadn't gone down! She was inside the overturned canoe, high and dry under a seat, and scared into hypnotic rigidity. They got her out with no serious results and pushed the boat ashore. It stayed ashore; and so did the governess. 808 THE Campobello “cottage” really is a long, rambling, three-story frame house, with a children’s wing containing sleep in gporch and playroom recently added.

Y„ Dec. 17.-A 30- hour working week to help guard against a future depression was ad vocated today by Miss Frances Per kins. mentioned as President-Elect Roosevelt's choice for secretary of Labor. The New York industrial commis sioner declared the nation should muster all of its weaoons to combat a recurrence of economic ills. She believes a reduced working week would result in increased purchasing power and said fortifications against a future depression might include: 1. A thirty-hour week. 2. Substitution of man for ma chine, where possible. • 3. Establishment of a nation-wide system of employment bureaus. 4. Increased vocational training. 5. Prohibition of child labor. 6. Stabilization of industry. “We must let the working man and woman off m<ye from their daily and weekly tasks if the pur chasing power Is to be increased.” she said. “If the people spend all of their time working they do not have the opportunity to see and buy.” “We have found that where fac tories released their help on Sat urday afternoons, merchants re ported doubled business. People must have time to spend. It is vital.” Miss Perkins, whose hair Is just turning gray at the temples, sat be hind a huge desk in her office over looking downtown Albany as she explained that relief funds to the unemployed, strangely enough, had contributed much toward restora tion of the nation's purchasing power. “It is important,” she declared, “that we do not regard relief con tributions as charity for we should look upon them as part of an eco nomic program to provide increased purchasing power.” LOSES SUIT: ATTACKS FOE IN COURTHOUSE Screams of Woman Brings Rush in Corridor; Policeman Stops Fight.
