TWO NATIONS
FAIL TO AGREE
Purls, Aug. 29 (By the Associated
Press ).?The reparations commission
met again this afternoon In an effort
to reach unanimous agreement
regarding the German request for a
moratorium on her indemnity pay
ments. At the ervd of several hours
of discussion thp British and French
viewpoints were still widely at vari
once, with the Italians and Belgians
merely trying to And some proposal
which would meet the ideals of
France and Great Britain.
Two projected solutions were seriously
discussed. One of them was
known as the Belgian plan and tho
^ther was an amplification of a last
minute suggestion offered by Germany
just before Sir John Bradbury
and Eugene Macluer, British and
French members of the commission,
left Berlin for Paris last week. The
Belgian plan has been unofficially offered
by the Belgian delegation as a
means of preventing a break between
England and France on the reparations
issue. Under its terms Belgium
would accept long term notes in place
of the remaining cash payments due
this year, amounting to 150,000,000
gold marks. As a guarantee of ultimate
payment of these installments,
Germany wqald deposit 210,000.000
gold marks from the reserve of the
Reichsbank in the Bank of England.
France has not definitely declared
herself on this proposal, and M. L#a
I* Croix, Belgian member of the
commission, and M. Dudboise, president,
are conferring in the hope that
it might prove satisfactory. England
and Italy already have approved the
proposition.
The German plan, which probably
will be the subject. of conversations
between the commission and German
officials .on Wednesday, would meet
Premier Poincare's demand for allied
control of German state mines and
forests by a guarantee to France of
the products of these resources (.luring
the period of the moratorium.
Failure to promptly deliver the
stipulated timber and coal would result
in the seizure of certain mines
which would be designated in the
agreement.. British approval is be.
hind this arrangement, which is regarded
as giving France the productive
Phfe-qfegy
actually fawwwy oVer political control
of the mines and forests.
The British continue to emphasize
their belief that Germany is doing
everything: she can to meet the
French point of view and would be
willing: to give the productive guarantees
which M. Poincare demands in
return for a moratorium if such guarantees
are of a strictly business character,
and not political.
The French official position con.
tinues to be that full control of the
German mines and forests must be
handed over to the allies in return for
a moratorium. However, there is considerably
less talk of threatened isolation
action and more of the desire
of France to reach a unanimous decision
in the commission through a
compromise.

NO VOTE YET
ON BONUS PLAN
Washington, Aug. 29.?Senate consideration
of the soldier bonus bill
neaped an end today but some of the
senators-doubted that a Anal vote
before adjournment tonight would be
reached. . Half a dozen amendments
remataed-~to be acted upon- A nunyber
of senators desired to deliver addresses.
, Washington, Aug. 28 ?Semite debate
today on the soldiers' bonus bill
centered largely eta the land reclamation
amendment offered by Senator
McNary (Republican) of Oregon, but
neither that nor any of the other
amendments offered came to a vote.
The unanimous consent agreements
limitinir diirmalnn nf a man dm ant* f
20 minutes on each senator will become
operative tomorrow and leaders
were hopeful that a final vote on tha
bill itself could be had before adjournment.
In the discussions today Senators
Wadsworth of New York and Sterling
of South Dakota, Republicans,
voiced their opposition to the bonus,
although Senator Sterling supported
the reclamation project. Senators
Nicholson (Republican) of Colorado
and Heflin (Democrat) of Alabama
supported the bill, the former also
arguing 5n favor of the McNary
amendment.
Senator ' Nicholson attacked big
business men opposing the bonus,
mentioning particularly the United
States Steel Corporation and the
Standard Oil company. He charged
that the latter company profited
through "unconscionable" prices
charged during the war and declared
that it ill became Judge E. H. Gary,
chairman of the board of the steel
corporation, to oppose adjusted compensation
for the veterans when his
company made "great profits" daring
the war.
Senator Wadsworth was particularly
vigorous in his attack on the
measure. He declared that the bonus
could be financed only through
taxes now or later and that the An&criaan
people had reached a limit 'n
the burden they could bear. Also
he argued that the veterans themselves,
their wives and their children
money the former soldiers received,
which he contended, would be instuiicient
to afford any lasting benefits.
In presenting his reclamation
amendment, Senator McNary told the
conoto tVint if nflPorHpH nn onnortunltv
for congress to do "a great thing in
empire building" by reclaiming arid
lands in the West and swamp and
cutover lands in the South and East.
He argued also that it would give
opportunity to veterans desiring to
get back to the land, to acquire
homesteads with government aid
and operate to maintain a much needed
balance between the rural and
urban population.
The reclamation plan received the
support of several senators from the
West and South and was unopposed
in the debate. Senators Ransdell of
Louisiana and Fletcher of Florida,
Democrats, pictured the benefits that
would accrue in their states.
Mice Infest French
Fields; Killed by Gas
Geneva, Aug. 28.?The valley of
Ajoie, on the Swiss-French frontier,
has been invaded by thousands of
mice and the rodents are doing much
damage. They are believed to have
come from the trenches in Alsace.
The village authorities have arranged
drives by the people, offering
half a cent for each dead animal.
Poison gas is being used and the
method is to inject this into the subteri^fcean
galleries builty by the
mice. It has proved most effective;
27,000 dead being the record for one
day. N

Work Accomplished
By Miss e tuth
Summing up the work done in June,
July and August by your county home
demonstration agent, we find that she
has stressed conservation of food to
a great extent. Miss Smith has had
200 calls for her assistance, and visited
40 farm women to give them help,
has not failed to meet hS* regular
club meetings in which she has given
32 demonstrations. In this way she
reached 680 people in Union county.
A short course lasting three days
was held in the court house in Union
on July 27 to 29. Miss Matmla Smith
is surely gifted in ability to meet
emergencies. This is the second time
her place for a short course had to
be changed suddenly. I>ast year it
was the school house instead of camp,
this year the court house instead of
school. This did not seem to interfere
with its success, howevar, as 75
girls and boys were present. The
specialists from Winthrop College
WCIC jiirHtui iAJ give wit; vuyiw in mstmction.
The recreational features
brought joy and gladness to the girls
and boys.
Five communities are planning exhibits
to be put on at the Boganville
Township Fair.
Your cooperation will be appreciated
in advancing the work in Union
county.

There are glorious first times and

young correspondent is pleasod the

you will pardon the personal pronoun,
I have been a correspondent for
some periodical for 50 years and for
The Union Times, off and on, for over
20 years. I am the only one left
save one of the old correspondents.
I will not name him as he is still in
single blessedness. Yes, there is Vox,
that old veteran, who could wield his
pencil so glibly. Whose letters had
an individuality of their own Then
there was the late lamented "Moxv",
who not only wrote interesting letters
to The Times but talked Times and
possibly dreamed Times. They have
passed to the great beyond, where
there is no deaths or society news to
report.
When I consider all the scribes so
linked together,
I've seen around me fall,
Like leaves in wintry weather
1 feel like one who treads some banquet
hall
Deserted whose lights have tied.
Whose garlands dead.
And all but he departed.
So now admitting my inability u
run after with any prospect of overtaking

meeting it until it is weather beater
I tako my leave as a regular corre

such a manner that we may meet
