IDEA GETS BOOST
“Laboulaye Speech Called
“Flirtation” to Overcome
Debt Feeling.
By tfct Associated Press.
PARIS, May 28.—The idea that
France hopes to borrow more money
in the United States was augmented
today by the French press in a
speech by Andre Lefevre de Laboulaye,
Prance's Ambassador to Washington.
The Ambassador joined in France'!
new drive to overcome ill-feeling ir
the United States by making an ad
dress at the American Club, which
financial authorities described as “t
flirtation’' in the hope of borrowing
money. •
Newspapers said the recently
signed "Franco-American commercial
treaty might be a prelude to a
“friendly” loan of about $1,000,
000,000.
Discussed by Financiers.
In financial quarters there was
talk that Leon Blum, the probably
next premier, would seek a long-term
3 per cent loan.
Financial experts warned, however,
it was “foolish” to believe the problem
of France’s unpaid war debts to the
United States, the chief obstacle to a
loan, could be solved within “several
weeks.”
Neither Blum nor his associates has
made any suggestion that the war
debts will be paid. In some financial
quarters it was suggested that France
might open negotiations to wipe the
whole subject off the books.
Meanwhile, the Bank of France still
is suffering withdrawals from its gold
reserve. The bank reported today that
during the week ended May 22, with
drawals amounted to 56,000,000 francs
($3,715,000).
This withdrawal was small compared
to previous weeks before the present
high discount rates went into effect.
The present gold reserve of the bank
is 57,459,000,000 francs ($3,811,500,
000).
Said one authority : "It is perhaps
wise not to have too many illusions
on the financial miracle of American
assistance—especially Immediate as
sistance.”
Ambassador de Laboulaye listed a
series of events which he called con
ducive to Franco-American friend
ship.
Foremost, he said, was the trade
treaty. Others were the French par
ticipation in the Texas Centenary cele
bration as well as the Harvard Uni
versity and Statue of Liberty anni
versary ceremonies.
Stongly in Limelight.
M. O. Mitzakis, writing in the news
paper L'Intransigeant, said: "The
question of American financial inter
vention, in the form of a 15,000,000,
000 franc (about $1,000,000,000) loan
with a friendly Interest of 3 per cent
is strongly in the limelight.
"However alluring this formula
would be on a Sentimental and techni
cal plane, it is impossible to ignore
the etate of mind of the United States'
Congress in the hostility it has evi
denced since passage of the Johnson
law regarding countries 'in default,’
namely those which have interrupted
payment of their war debts. • • •
"The negotiation of such a loan on
a political plane would nevltable raise
again the question of war debt pay
ments, making the loan conditional
on a resumption of payments.”
Crowd Prevents Meeting.
By wrecking the speaker’s rostrum,
burning a streamer above it and de
stroying literature which was to be
offered for sale, a crowd prevented the
holding of a meeting of the Irish So
cial Credit Party in Dublin, Irish
Free State.
