FRANCE BOWS
TO BRITAIN
AT PARLEYS
England Talks Paris
Delegates Out Of
Strong Censure Of
Hitler’s Move
(Copyright, 1935, by the AP.)
STRESA. Italy, April 12.—Franoe
withdrew her strong resolution of
censure for German rearmament In
the face of firm opposition by both
Great Britain and Italy in Friday’s
V session of the tripartite conference.
The resolution was to have been
presented to the League of Nations
for a vote following discussion Mon
day of France's appeal against the
German conscription move.
Considerations Made
French official circles said the
resolution was withdrawn out of
deference to considerations made by
Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald
of Great Britain and Premier Mus
solini of Italy.
In place of the resolution, it was
disclosed, there will be substituted
a series of conclusions appended to
a French memorandum. The con
clusions will consist of juridical
statements reaffirming the duty of
nations to abide by their treaties.
These conclusions, however, will
not be voted upon by the league, it
was said.
Premier Mussolini's newspaper,
Fopolo D’ltalia. set forth the Ital
ian position on France s appeal by
saying, "recourse to Geneva remains
a French initiative and seemingly
should not become a Franco-Italo
English initiative even if the Italian
and British ministers have been
wholly informed of the memorandum
which France will present to the
league and even If they share its
aent intents.”
Conference circles were much in
terested in the decision of Maxim
Litvinoff. soviet commissar for for
eign affairs, to go to Geneva to
be near the Stresa conference, but
they expressed the opinion the Rus
ai&n would not come here to attend
any of the sessions.
The French, realizing the British
—■ere to avoid antagonizing Reichs
faWirer Hitler, have carefully avoid
ed any talk of "sanctions.” such as
military and economic penalties for
treaty violators, an authoritative
French source said.
Reports Ridiculed
Certain French cabinet officials
had proposed discussing sanctions
before the conference opened, in
formed French circles said, but
Premier Pierre Etienne Flandin and
Foreign Minister Pierre Laval over
ruled them. Flandin and Laval
pointed out. it was said, that the
League of Nations would be certain
to shy away from any consideration
of —actions, since they must be
voted upon unanimously bv all
members of the league by the terms
of the covenant.
French observers ridiculed a ru
mor circulated here that France
had submitted a secret report on
Oerman armament to the confer
ence. since Italy and Great Britain
already are informed of the Reichs
military activities and the extent of
her armed strength is no longer a
secret.
The semi-official Italian news
paper. La Stampa, said Friday. "Sir
John Simon’s answers to the French
and Italian questions yesterday
indicated that the British foreign
office was much struck by the ad
vanced stage already reached by
Oerman armaments."

SUNDAY SCHOOL
LESSON
Text: John 1:14-17; Romans
5:6-19; Philippian* 2:5-11.
The International Uniform Sun
day School Lesson for April 14.
By WM. E. GILROY. D. D.
Editor at Advance
If there was one thing that Jesus
taught clearly and directly, it was
that He had come to the world as a
Saviour of men.
Again and again through different
;>arables He illustrates the realityj
of the fact that He had come to seek
and to save the lost. His mission as
Saviour is from God the Father,
who loves men and who will receive
them with pardoning grace if they
will turn from their sins and seek
His mercy and the power of His
salvation.
Depth and the extent of this go6
oel of salvation are alike set forth
in John 3:16 — "For God so loved
the world, that He gave His only
begotten Son. that whosoever be
lieveth on Him should not perish,
but have eternal life.”
The passages in our lesson from
Romans and Philippians may be
regarded as expositions of this el
emental gospel concerning the love
of God and the sacrificial mission of
Christ. When Jesus hung upon the
cross. His enemies railed upon Him
contemptuously, saying. “He saved
others, himself He cannot save.”
• • •
There was more truth than they
realized fn their sneer. Even in or
dinary human life we see often how
men can save and help their fellow'
men only through giving themselves.
Jesus gave Himself w -h the glory
of a complete sacrifice — “God com
mendeth His love toward us. in that,
while we were yet sinners, Christ
died for us.”
We ought to notice the way in
which Paul expresses this. It has
not always been put in that way. and
men have sometimes taken even
the language of Paul to express quite
a different conception of the gos
pel; namely, that God could forgive 1
man’s sin only by making his own
suffer the penalty.
Paul does discuss the nature of the
sacrifice of Christ in re!*.on to the
conception of sacrifice in the Old
Testament and among the Jews to
whom his epistles were for the mo6t
part addressed. But when he comes
to express the reality of the gospel
on its positive and constructive side,
he makes it plain that what Jesus
was. God is.
• • •
The love and sacrifice of Jesus
were the expression of the Divine
Father Himself. If God had not
loved men. Jesus would not have
gone to the cross, and the crosi
would have been of no avail. It is
not God who is reconciled to us by
the death of Christ, but it is we
who are reconciled to God.
But our lesson concerning Christ
the Saviour has its human appli
cation. It is possible for us to have
the man which was in Chgsl Jesus.
We can live, also, in the sacrificial
spirit of love. We can so learn to
know Christ and so receive Into our
hearts and lives the power of His
salvation that we become saviors.
“We are co-workers together with
Him,” said Paul, and we could not
be co-workers with Christ without j
participating In the great work
that He came to accomplish in the
saving of men.
Nor is this salvation that Jesus
brings merely an Individual or iso
lated thing. Men are saved into a j
fellowship. Through the salvation)
of Jesus we are brought Into com
munion with the great company of
those who everywhere bow in rever
ence and devotion at the name of
Jesus.

NEW YORK. April 12. Two
minutes of silence on the wires and
cessation of all activities of the
Associated Press throughout the
world were observed at 10:30 a. m

In a message ordering the ces
sation of activities for the period,

loyalty never wavered. He had
real affection for the organization

worked for it. Out of respect for
him two minutes of silence at 10:30
a. m. Friday, April 12. the hour of
his funeral. Is enjoined on all

Rangers Keep Corpus
Vote Probe Secret
CORPUS CHRIST!. April 12.
—Texas rangers kept their activi
ties secret as they pressed their in
vestigation of charges of irregulari
ties in last week's city election here.
"We have no statements to make,"
Zeno Smith, one of the three ran
gers detailed here for the Job, said.
The others were A1 Allee and C.
W. Williamson.
R. A. Thompson, a member of
the new city council which won of
fice at the election under investi
gation, said the administration
wrould co-operate with the rangers.
District Attorney R. B. Rentfro
said his office would take no part
in the Inquiry until requested by
Corpus Christ! seaidenta.
be rounded up for the state’s cen
tennial celebration in 1936. The an
niversary will be Texas’ first and
perhaps the longhorns’ last, but
visitors, many of whom will have
their first glimpse of the lanky,
razor-back animals, will look upon
the inspiration of the romance ol
cattle in the southwest and the
source of many solid family for
tunes.
The round-up will be a simple
affair. The drumming hoofs of the
cowboys pony, the bellowing of
harried animals, the bawling of
calves, and the clashing of pon
derous horns will be absent. This
handful of descendants of the
vast herds that made history in
dramatic “drives” up the long
trails to northern railheads will
be driven in from the game pre
serves of L. A. Schreiner of Kerr
ville for their short Journey.
Mr. Schreiner, banker and ca
pitalist, owns probably the only
herd of genuine Texas longhorns.
He has announced he would exhi
bit the historic cattle, headed by
“Old Paint,” whose gaunt form
and long, undulating horns repre
sented his species at Chicago's
Century of Progress, at Texas’ one
hundredth celebration of Independ
ence at Dallas next year.
The longhorn, a domestic animal
but essentially wild, is bel.eved to
be of Spanish origin, developed
and acclimated in Mexico and
crossed the Rio Grande soon after
Texas gained independence from
Mexico. The supremacy of this
hardy and easily sustained animal
as the nation's chief meat supply
during the 70’s and 80's Is one of
the strange chapters in American
economic history.
At the end of the Civil War the
herds of the middle west, which
failed to multiply without suitable
attention, had been heavily deplet
ed. Farmers in that area had abun
dant com but few cattle to eat it.
On the other hand the semi-wild
cattle in the prickly pear country
of the Rio Grande, the brush
country and plains had so multi
plied that by the early 70's their
millions paralleled the myriad buf
falo thatc ropped the public pas
tures before man's greed brought
their extinction. Indeed, so cheap
were these cattle that many were
butchered for their hides and tal
low.
Tha middle west with abundant
feed and Texas with the cattle to
fatten upon it and make the na
tion's beef were the ingredients
of the Texas longhorn, the cowboy,
the round-up and all the fiction
that picturesque era has inspired.
A market for the Lcfne Star
state's chief commodity launched
the famous trail driving. Millions
of longhorns went up the old
Chisholm and other trails and the
rough. nngy and unlovely animal
dwindled almost to the point of dis
appearance leaving barbed wire
and the short-necked, heavy short
horns rulers of the cow country.
The heights and the depths of the
longhorn's fame is told in a cen
tury of Texas history.
