IIV CONSTANTINE BROWN. Ry Radio to The Star and the Chicago Daily New*. PARIS, September 27.—Pressure has been brought on Premier Herriot by the French Socialists to abolish the French embassy at the Vatican. Sev erance of diplomatic relations be tween France and the Vatican has been one of the outstanding points in the present French cabinet elec toral platform. It appeared prepos terous to the French Socialists that the country “should continue rela tions with a monarchy" without a worldly empire and spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for an em bassy which could render no actual service to the country. In order to avoid lengthy discus sions. the government has decided to ask the financial commissions of the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies to suppress appropriations for the up keep of the Vatican embassy. I.ong Fight Persists. For the last eighty years the ques tion of Franco-Papal relations has been coming up every few years. It was hoped that the action in 1906, whereby the state ceased to pay sal aries of the clergy, relations with the Vatican were seven*! aifll all reli gious congregations were made illegal and driven out of France, would set tle once and forever the matter of re ligious strife. This, however, did not happen. In 1915. for political reasons, relations with the Vatican were re sumed. And later, in 1921, a French ambassador to the Vatican was ap pointed. Suppression of the embassy now is likely to create a serious disturbance, since the Alsatians were promised by a former government that they would be allowed to preserve all their privi leges of protesting against the sup pression of relations with the Holy See. The Alsatian bishops are al ready warning the government that the population is resenting the idea of severing relations with the Vati can and that the loyalty of this re annexed population will be put to a severe lest If the severance is put into effect. The correspondent learns that the government has decided not to pay any attention to the Alsatian prptests and one of the first acts of the next meeting of Parliament will be the sup pression of the embassy.
