France’s position in the new Eu
ropean division brought about by
the adjournment of the foreign
ministers’ meetings is the first.
The second is this country’s posi

France's place in the western
orbit was, of course, defined by its
acceptance of a share in the Mar

maining is when open orientation
shall begin, though one thing is
already certain. That is, that on
this side of the Rhine advantage
must be taken of any and all anti
To that end rapprochement with
Franco Spain is considered essen

the Franco-Spanish border and
arranging a Franco-Spanish com

On Extradition Order
By th# Associated Press
PITTSBURGH, Dec. 19.—Revers
ing an extradition order of Gov,
James H. Duff, an Allegheny County
judge yesterday freed a Negro fugi
tive from a Georgia chain gang who
feared he would be tortured if re
turned to the Southern State.
Judge Samuel A. Weiss said in
freeing James Moreland, 26:
"This court will not permit the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to
join the State of Georgia in the fur
ther perpetration of injustice against
a helpless Nefero.”
Moreland, alias Jacob Head, testi
fied he was "framed” on a burglary
'-harge because he worked for a
Georgia sheriff in the operation of a
whisky still. He had served three
years of a 12-year sentence when
he escaped from the hospital of the
Greenville Penitentiary at Cairo, Ga.
Arriving in Pittsburgh last May,
the defendant obtained a construe
tion job and was arrested in June.
The case came to court on his appeal
from the Governor's extradition
In his 51-page opinion, Judge
Weiss cited newspaper and magazine
reports critical of Georgia's treat
ment of Negro prisoners.
