Paris. Aug. I. (AP) —Representa
tives of the United States and France !
were preparing today to lay tha !
ground work for understandings j
which would pave tne way for Am- j
erica's consiceration of revision of
war debts.
Walter E. Edge. American ambas- :
sador. planned rapid negatiation of a (
commcricial treaty with France, and ;
it was announced that negotiations be !
tween the two countries would be open j
ed soon to try to find a formula for
disarmament, with special attention !
to a reduction in the size of the
French army.
The two questions the United States;
was understood to have represented to j
the French government provided the '
proper means for approach to a re- !
vision of the French debt to the Unit- !
ed States, but it was explained that 1
no official pressure would be brought i
upon France to disarm.
On the other hand. France had con- 1
sented to let the debt question rest
for a while, probably until after the
Presidential election in the UUnlted
States. Her anxiety has not lessened, i
however, to know whether there is
a good prospeot that the debts will
be reduced to a level of the Lausanne i
reparations settlement. j

Albany, N Y., Aug. I.—< AP)
Friends assert that Governor Franklin
D. Roosevelt, who has been labelled
radical by the Republicans, considers
himself much less radical than Presi

sented as believing that the Farm
Board. Federal financing of the rail
roads and currency inflation are ex
amples of radical and unsound Re
publican leadership.
This Is expected to be the Democra

the Republican charges of radicalism.
Governor Roosevelt’s friends say the
answer will be made during an ex
tensive speaking tour, in which he
will discuss what he will call the un
sound governmental acta and policies
of President Hoover.
This was revealed jrestrday while
Mr. Roosevelt was at Peeks kill review
ing National Guardsmen. He returned
to Albany late in the evening, ob
viously happy over the pledge of. sup
