The article probably constituted the most Important political statement since the armistice. By Aristide Briand. riCIAL CABI.B TO THS INQCTBZB. Copyright, 1926, by Universal Service.) Paris, December 28. I tak6 this op portunity of sending through Unlver- al Service my best wishes to the American people for 1927. ' I feel that Americans understand my policy and believe In It. I hope that In 1927 material disarmament as well as spiritual disarmament will make great progress. France Is do- lng everything possible to bring it about. America is making praiseworthy ef- forts to attain it, and others are also trying. Let me say now that France de sires that an International conferenco on disarmament should meet very soon. I hope that 1927 will see further development of the policy of Franco- German rapprochement. 1 have been bitterly criticized and vilified satir- ized and lashed violently by news- papers because of this policy. A Isrc-A nnrr nf the French nress proaches me for the so-called Locarno policies. But that portion of the press is wrong. It is not in tune with ; , the country and does not understand , French public opinion. But In spite of all criticisms, no one has suggested a contrary policy. A policy, oi isolation lor France ana ex MiatvA firmnmcnTa is nn nrtiinv. France could strengthen her arma- . ments and refuse to talk about col laboration with Germany. Where would that lead? To war. But It Is easy to make war. Any Government can do that. To avoid war Is difficult and I wish to avoid war. The policy I am carrying out today . Is one I formulated in 1921. Fremlcra Herriot and Palnleve took It up after me ana x nave cuiiliiiuuu wim wimi ' they had already done. Just call to mind tho situation In France in 1921. France was heading toward isolation; interallied solidar ity was weakening: we wore losing Contact with our allies. We could no longer count on England's constant support 1 Other Nations Hand. And while France was becoming Isolated, what was happening on the continent? Germany was regaining her strength. Russia extended a With Germany and also with Russia, Just think what it would have meant if this bloc, already In process of formation, had been molded ' What would have become of us?

IJeclslve Argument Is Cited. ... One decisive argument explains my i .,,, i,. rifi- if r Amanr(au ' Said: -If the guarantee pact to the Versailles treaty Is not ratified by England and the United States, the ha. n value whatever." Well, this pact was ratified by neither England nor the United States, and we had no guarantee whatever on the Rhine in case of German at- tack. What, therefore, Is the advantage ' of the Locarno treaty? " England, Germany, Italy, Belgium -'and France, five nations, signed the treaty which guarantees the Rhine Irontler. ! I Imagine this is a tangible result. What has France lost on account of my policy? Have her rights been diminished In any way? Are any of her interests wronged? No. We have ceded nothing. We have lost nothing. Our rights and our interests remain Intact. As soon as Parliament reconvenes In January I will take my place on the tribune of the Chamber of Deputies and ex plain my policy in detail. I will de mand a vote of confidence. Parliament will have to take Its responsibilities. 1 will permit the debate to go the limit. I intend to clear up the misunderstanding which 'seems to-have arisen between some of the political parties', personalities and myself. There must be a clear understanding In France of my policy, Mother's Bargain I SFBCUL DISPATCH TO THS IXqUIEES.

I SPECIAL DISPATCH TO THS XNQUIRH. Indianapolis, Ind., December 28.- B'if teen of the 21 policewomen of In- dianapolis were ordered to be sus- ded today and wlll be dUmBsed as soon as charges against them are drawn up by the city's legal depart- ment.' Another- was reduced from the rank of Sergeant to that of police- woman. The "shake-up" was made beoausa the 1927 budget provides for the re- tentlon of only five and does not make any provision of rank among women. Policewoman Sadie M. Os- borne was retired on a pension. No member of the police force legally may be dismissed unless charges are brought before the Board of Public Safety. The charges will be technical ones, based on the grounds that their dismissal Is neces- sary for "public economy." Ten men were appointed by the board to be patrolmen, five being Re- publicans and five Democrats. These appointments are the first under the new civil service system for policemen and firemen of Indianapolis. BIRTHS. The following births were recorded ln.
