He is Paul Reynaud "llltle giant" of French politics, today the most uncompromising opponent of German Naziism In the French government, It was In 1323 Unit Rc'ynand wns first called pro-German In the Cliamber of. Deputies. The late President Polncalrc was Impudent with Die Germans for their failure to pay reparations. He went to the chamber and asked, (or support to send troops Into the Ruhr. He got Leon Daudet to suoporl him. •'.-•' POINCA1RE ATTACHED PRO-GERMAN LABEL Andre Tardleu' countered opposition, said the British wouldn't stand for it. Then a little mnri ("The. Mexican," tiiey called him) took the floor, siild "No" also. It was Reynauel's maiden speech. , Later, Pplheaife' said to Daudet: "Your speech: was French, Tardieu's was English, but Reynaud's was German." The story got around and Paul Reynaud was 1 labeled. The label stuck even more firmly after Reynand, 8s minister of nuance tmcjor Tardleu,. went to Germany, and began conversations with German leaders with n view toward appeasement between tlm two historic enemies. Nothing cam c of the conversations because of Prenclr'lntolefahce. Had France heeded German appeals there may not have beer) the financial collapse ot the republic.
