VOL. XXIV NO. 22. BARRE, VERMONT, FRIDAY, APIUJ.. 9, 1920. PRICE, TWO CENTS. TH K FRANCE'S RESENTMENT TOWARD GREAT BRITAIN REACHES HIGH PITCH Entente Relations Serious ly Threatened as Resul of the British Attitude in ' Regard to the Occupation ;of Frankfort by French Troops Diplomatic Con versations May Be In stituted. FRANCE WILL INSIST ON LET- TER OF TREATY And the Government at Paris May Ask Great Britain What She Thinks About Continuing the : Entente Relation Great ; Britain's Version of the Treaty Is Considered Too Flexible. Faris, April It. The British attitude regarding the ' French occupation of Frankfort will cause the opening of a diplomatic conversation between the power of the entente concerning the whole subject of action with regard to Germany, it was said to-day in official Circles. In this conversation the French at titude will be, first, on maintenance of the entente, and, second, on strict execution of the treaty of Versailles. The1 French, although declaring them selves not satisfied with some of the terms of the treaty, accepted it as finally signed and now consider it sort of a charter as regards relations with Germany. Great Britain, it is thought here, considers it rather as a sort of elastic basis of settlement of Europe an affairs which is capable of diverse modifications. - The conciliation of these viewpoints will be the object of the ensuing con versations, during which France, it is stated, will probably ak Great Brit ain whether t stands for execution of the ireaty. It is recalled that articles 42, 4.1 and 44 of the Versailles treaty defined ac tions by Germany which might be re garded as calculated to disturb the peace of the world and it pointed out that such action by Germany was ar jComplished when the Reiehswebr pene trated the Ruhr district. I in provision lor sncn viomuon oi me '.treaty by Germany, Great Britain ana the I'nit'ed States," through their repre sentatives in I'aris, it is noted, agreed .in separate treaties to support France 'against the German menace, but those treaties, it is recalled in official circles, 'arc thus far a dead letter. France, it j1s declared here, is thus left alone fac ing Germany, which is at Lackiiiffone aft er another the clauses of the treaty. iThe opinion is expressed in official eir- !eles that, while maintenance of the jlrnlente is the first point on which fu jture conversation must be based, there seems to be a need "readjustment of It he relations of the entcnie powers. 'The original understanding having been jto ward off the menace of aggression jby Germany, it was continued during 'the war with the view of winning the jwar. but was never adjusted to after Mar conditions, which, it is asserted Hiere. require a more comprehensive Record. ! FRENCH CABINET IN SESSION. AMERICAS ATTITUDE THAT OF OBSERVER Will Not Participate Toward Any Ad justment of Situation Created by Entry of French Troops Into Ruhr. Washington, D. C, April 0. Ameri ca's attitude toward any adjustment of tjje new situation created by the entry of French troops into the Ruhr district of Germany, will continue to be more that of an observer than an interested participant," from what can be learned in official circles here. It is known the state department was in communica tion with London and Itaiy, aa well as trance, up to the time the frencn army moved forward from the May ence bridgehead, and there has been no indication here of any change in the position taken more than a week ago when the state department announced that tins government knew no reason why German troops should not be sent into the troubled district if it were clearly understood they would be with drawn once order was restored. While recognizing the seriousness of the situation created by the independ ent action 'by France, officials here were not inclined to regard it "as deli cate" as the British foreign office indi cated last night. It was regarded as one of those situations full of poten tial donsrer, but in which the proba bility of adjustment was predominant. All reports have indicated Germany s unwillingness to contest the force of French arms, and it was pointed out that there is no reason to assume Franco will not adhere to her assur ances that her forces will be withdrawn once the German troops have fallen back to th eastern boundary of the neutral zone. An interesting development foreseen here is the measures that may be tak-1 en to prevent the recurrence of sun lar action on the part of any of the allied powers. Since the United State has no representative on the Rhine commission, it is :iot a member or the league of nations anil the commander of the little American ennv at toblenz will not act without direct ordeTs from Washington, any nteps taken by Great Britain or her allies to effect a more definite understanding with France must be without direct participation of the I nited States, it was indicated It was assumed, however, that Ambas sador Wallace would continue the part of an observer with limited advisory powers.

The burgomasters of the cities of Barmen and Klberfield, it is stated, re quested the minster of defense not to allow the troops to enter those towns. Great excitement prevails in Ihiessel- dorf, in view of the threatened entry of the regulars. The majority Socialist newspaper orwaerts has advices from Duesscl dorf, which declare that a general trike is impending there m which all ITALY AGREES WITH GREAT BRITAIN premier Millerand Describes British Attitude on Occupation.

The number of persons who have crossed the line from the Ruhr region into occupied territory is in excess of a thousand, according to the British authorities. Several of the Berlin newspapers print the report that the American member of the interallied Rhineland commission had informed the president of the commission that he refused to participate in any decisions of the commission favoring the advance of the French into unoccupied Germany. The Vossische Zeitung says that en tente envoys already have arrived in the industrial region to supervise the evacuation of the neutral zone. SPANISH BUDGET PASSED.

Two years before the LTnited States Joined the allies in the World war the navy general board prepared a comprehen sive plan for war against a "central power" of Europe, Rear Admiral F. F. Fletcher to-day told the Senate inves tigating committee. He was replying to Rear Admiral Sims' charges that when the LTnited States entered the war the navy department had no "well considered" plans or policies for fight ing Germany. Many such plans had been made in the past, Admiral Fletcher said, but the plan referred to "covered every phase of naval operation under the as sumed conditions of war." It dealt, he ss il, wHh the mobilization, organi zation and composition of the fleet, its disposition and employment, protec tion of the coasts, bases of supplies on the United State coast and in the West Indies, routes across the Atlantic and the enemy's, forces and probable courses of action, and compromised nearly 300 typewritten pages. Admiral Fletcher was a member of the general board during the war, but engaged for the moxt part -with his du ties as a member .of the war industries board, the priorities board and the I council of national defense. Explaining that he wished to com ment on certain specific charges made by Admiral Sims before tentifying re garding his duties as a member of these various boards, the witness nrst tooK up Sims' criticism that the navy was not prepared for war in April, 1017 No navy ever was or ever will le fully prepared for war in the eyes of everyone, the admiral declared, bit the American navy when it entered the war was "just as well prepared as any other navy in the world when the gTeat war hurst forth," he asserted. Admiral Sims' declaration that the navy department should have immedi ately sent all available destroyers and small craft abroad to fight submarines, sounded "plausible and convincing," the witness eaid, but such a course of ac- ion would have left the American coasts and irt full f invaluable ves sels and cargoes open to attack by Ger man submarines that had aemon strated in 1916 their ability to cross the ocean, menace the I nited states coast and return to Germany unaided. Such an attack, he asserted, would have caused great ajarm in this country and would have prevented sending 'any small vessel to the war zone. Admiral Fletcher characterized the work of the war industries board a one of the "greatest achievements of he war." and declared that the mem hers of the board complimented high Iv the efficiency with which the navy department conducted the business end of its participation in the war. No hss of shipping or failure of the navy to transport troops to France prolonged the war for a single day. the admiral asserted. Admiral Sims' asser tion that 'the navy department is re sponsible tor the loss of two and a half million tons of shipping, the prolon gation of the war for four months, fif teen billion dollars of debt, and the loss of STO.OOO lives," was based upon as sumption and had no foundation in fa't. the officer declared. "The whole conclusion reached in the foundation of the hypothetical condi fnttndation of a hypopthetieal condi tion and is wholly without value," he said.
