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

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.

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. Under the rapid advance
of this theory, however, the feeble
minded and mentally unfit are
not being controlled because they

The Roosevelts’ summer home at wind-swept Campobello.
He frequently went up for short

on the Fourth of July, he made
a triumphal appearance at the
island on a United States de

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

She was ensconced in the bot

the bow, his father steering at
the stern—and they capsized.

arrival that Mrs. Moroney still was
in the house. Search was started
and then her screams were heard.
After being led to safety, she at

WOMAN AID OF
ROOSEVELT FOR
30-HOUR WEEK
Frances Perkins, Hinted in
Line for Labor Secretary,
Gives Doctrine.
iOoorrieht. 1932. by United Press)
ALBANY.-N. 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.”
