HUN RELATIONS WORRYFRANCE Public Is Divided Over Re sumption of Business With Enemy Paris, Oct. 2. —The Impending re sumption of commercial relations with the enemy of yesterday is caus ing the French public at large a good deal of misgiving. Many would keep the German out at all cost, but cooler heads realize that France cannot afford to close the door upon a customer of a billion francs annually. There is however, a fairly unanimous feeling that if ■the German is to come back to France, he must come back in some recognizable shape and not dis guised as too often before. Incidents such as the following do not serve to put the public mind at ease. A woman of good social stand ing of Lille recognized yesterday, in the person of a cashier in one of the big department stores of Paris, a former German officer. She had good reason to remember him as one of the invaders who had been quartered upon her home in Lille. Challenged as to his identity the man stoutly denied his Teutonic nationality. He spoke French per fectly; his papers were to all ap pearance in order, and the accuser at first found scant credence on the part of the management. Then she remembered that the man had once boastfully exhibited his arm, on which the portrait of the former German Emperor was tattooed. The cashier officer was dismissed and the newspapers are now demanding that employers shall be held re sponsible for the civil status of their employes.
