HOPE STAR, HOPE, 'We're Not Glory-Grabbers!' Bristle Boys of the U. S. Volunteer Unit in France By NEA Service , PARIS — In front of the snappin) logs of the great fireplace in the dining hall of the Chateau de la Ronce at Ville d'Avray, just outside Paris, a group of young Americans warm themselves smoking and humming to the indigo minors of the Cook's accordion. Now and then someone turns to look out at the cold rain—a meaningful gesture when you know how familiar these youngsters are going to be with rain a few weeks from now. ' They have cast their lot with luck on, the Western Front as the first organized group of American volunteers in the Allied cause in the Second World War. They arc the thriving nucleus of the Iroquois Ambulance Corps, and when they start through the colder November rains up toward the battle line slush, their equipage will bear as insignia an Indian warrior figurehead representing The Five Indian Nations. Plenty 'to Be Done Yet All told, there will be 40 drivers, a doctor, two mechanics, two cooks, 20 light ambulances of standard French Army specifications, a staffcar , a repair truck and a rolling kitchen. That will be the outfit. Right now It's considerably under full strength. There are not enough trucks. The personnel isn't complete. There is a budget to be balanced; ambulances, trucks, gas masks, helmets to be bought; straight drills and training courses to be given. The Iroquois ambulance drivers con- side^r these things as they stretch before the fire after the meal which Cookie Eddie Wiggins of Chicago served up home style. And it's obvious that getting a foot into a big war isn't the easiest thing. Some of these boys, who were in Spain for the hostilities already realize that operations here are going to be slightly more scientific, • Nevertheless, much has been accomplished. Basic asset is immense Chateau de la Ronce, lent to the outfit by Mrs. Alice Steel Powers. It contains commortable barracks space, storage and offices for G. H. Q. Some of the rolling stock is in and some more is in prospect. The organization is established firmly according to legal requirements. Big Chief Has Medals Chief of the Iroquois is Jean de la Chesnaye of New York, graduated cum laude from the Foreign Legion, where he gamed a string of honors headed by Croix de Guerre des T. U. E. With him on the committe are Steele Powers of Atlanta, Ga., automotive technical adviser and manager in Europe for 10 years; John F. Hasey of Bridgewater, Mass., for three years with Cartier, the Rue de la Paix jeweler; J. G. B. Campbell, assistant manager of the Guaranty Trust Co. of New York in Paris, and H. de DIAMONDS The Iroquois Ambulance Corps has headquarters in Chateau de la Ronce near Paris. Pictured are three officers of the corps and a stenographer. Left to tight, Jean de la Chesnaye, president; Stcelc Powers, technical advisor; John Hasey, secretary, and Mona Ducret at desk.

In this instance the department is succeeding in breaking up what it considers one of the worst rackets to boost building costs—and is doing it without criminal proceedings. The department is not yet ready to reveal thc name of the city. Sub-Contractors Involved in Rackets This racket involves use of the so- called "bid depository" is found in almost every branch of the building supply industry—plumbing, heating, painting, excavating, brick, tile, elec- Becker, retired importer. The committee engages only American citizens who offer their services as volunteers without pay. Candidates must he at least 21 years old and have papers in order. Each volunteer signs a .six-month contract binding him with the committee, renewable for six-month periods. He is forbidden to sign a contract with the French Army. On the other hand, the committee itself will sign a contract with the French authorities binding themselves for war duration. Already on Military Basis ^ Already the Iroquois Ambulance Corps is on a military regime. For a few minutes after lunch, there is a non-business get-together. Then de la Chesnaye is off to Paris to iron out a new problem confronting the corps. He takes Charlie Ahrenfeldt, former Print-ton student, to handle some side missions.

That's obligatory passive defense because white concrete | reflects the skylights. Donaldson, the steward, goes out to rummage for supplies. He is already planning the meals a week ahead. Hasey takes over G. H. Q. and with Mona Ducret, the committee's stenographer, starts poring over the cor. respondcnce. Greatest concern is over thc .state uf finance.-; and prospective source* of income. How di, these young Americans sec- it all? What's in the game for them'.' "Well, for one thing," they bristle.

Germans Willing to Mediate In 1916, Germany, hard-pressed, said she would accept the U. S. as mediator, but the allies refused. As 1917 opened, Wilson made his last offer, proposing his famous "peace without victory." Both sides reviled him. Then it was the fate of Wilson the peacemaker to lead his own country into war, and try to make such a peace as would halt wars of the, future. Peace must be organized, for j ional Justice at The Hague which had been temporarily set up years before. Again the United States refused to take part (1935). Desertions fror.t League The story of the League effort, its large failures and its little triumphs, is a long one. Beginning in 1933 members began to desert it, and though in December, 1938, it still technically had 54 member-countries, the absence of Brazil, Japan, and Germany and the notice of withdrawal of Italy, Chile, and others has left if a frozen cripple in its marble palace in Geneva, helpless to have prevented or to halt the new war sweeping Europe. These things Wilson was not to sec. On Armistice Day, 1923, he spoke his last public words. "I am not one of those," ho said, "that have the least anxiety about the triumph of the principles 1 have stood for. I have seen fools resist Providence before and I have seen their destruction, as will come upon these again—utter destruction and contempt. That we shall prevail is as sure as that God reigns." On the morning of Feb. 3, 1924, he diecl.dcfeatc d as a statesman, immortal as a prophet of peace. NEXT: Frank B. Kellogg, the man who "outlawed" war. member nations was to try it.

It works like this: The sub-contractors in one field- painting, for example—club together and set up a trade association office. When a general contractor calls for bids for painting on a new construction job, all painting sub-contractors submit their bids to this association office, or "bid depository." Then, when all bids are in, the group goes over them and eliminates Die lowest ones—say the lowest 15 pel- cent. The sub-contractors who submitted those bids are not allowed to bid again on the job; or, if they are allowed to, they are required to submit bids higher than the lowest of the bids which were not eliminated. In the end, then, the bids which go to the general contractor have an average level much higher than the one which would otherwise be obtained is presented. Officials Willing to Talk Now in the city rej'crrcd lo above, the department did not take thc "bid depository'' matter before a grand jury at all. It sought indictments in an entirely different branch of the building industry. But when the young lawyer who was handling the case for the department got in touch with officials of the subcontractors' trade associations and mentioned that he would like to talk to them, they came in to see him without delay. Twenty-four hours later, one of thc associations announced thai it had closed its office and was going to discontinue the "bid depository" system at once. In this particular city there exist four other .similar associations; and they, too, indicated thai they will .shortly follow suit. In the end. the department expects to get a set of consent decrees covering tlio.se five .'iub-contracling fields in that city, outlawing thc "bid depository" practice- and rendering the bidders liable to punishment for eon- tcmpt^jf court if it is ever resumed. ft i.s m ways like this that Hie department expecl.s to get its l/iggt-.st. results out of its campaign. The indictments will be noim-rou:, and will be sensational, and -if they stand up—a number of people- will be liable to get i fined or go to jail. ! But their chief value wij) be that ! they will unable Die department to ; break up a great many restraints of trade without going to the expense of criminal proceedings.
