Senator Boarh wants that $4,000,000,000
France owes to the United States. Deputy Marin,
of France, says the debt will be paid, but that
America should balance or adjust its call for gold
against the blood of France that was shed to win
the world war. Each spokesman presents solid
and substantial arguments wherein dollars are
balanced against sentiment. In a sense, both are
right. We had thought all the time that there
could be no dispute over the repayment of a plain
loan of the staggering figures of the bill presented
to France. After reading the French view, h
ever, we are reminded of the story of the defen
dant who was represented in court by an able
lawyer. Having cleared the man of the charge,
the lawyer said to him, "Did you really steal the
mule?" "Well sir, it was just like this," said the
man. "I really thought I did steal that mule, but
after hearing your argument to the jury I was
convinced that I didn't."
Reviews of business conditions throughout
the country are refreshing reading. Production
is advancing, distribution of goods is on the in
crease, and prices are gaining over the low points
of last summer. Business is on an upward trend;
and to the business man, the farmer, the miner,
and all of us, the upward trend on a business chart
is the best possible antidote for the "tired-busi
ness-man" feeling.

that 60 per cent of the proceeds shall
be distributed among the 66 counties
equally, and 50 per cent be returned
t0 the counties in proportion to the
registration of automobiles from that
