I The chief industry of the is-, lands is codfish. One of the chief industries of France is wine making. A business common to bom is shipping. In nil these brnnrhe 1 ; of human endeavor the mother country and the islands share sympathetic interests. 11 has been unofficially reported that the French government will take steps to stop liquor smugglnm ir.iough Saint Herre and Miqne- lon, and Washington lias been reported as pleased. The French Ministry of Colonies is said to be interested in the plight of the promotion agents ana to have askc'i me governor 01 the islands to look into the cargoes leaving his shores..

They have asked lor intormation on shipping traffic from the islands, but it is said that no statistics have ycl been yivcn. in tins connection, it is recalled tlr.a tnese treasury agents have been exceedingly unpopular here ol late and a campaign tor Iheir removal has been waged in the press. Thc''[aVnous' Uodge mustoms fine, with thi information that French informants get 25 per cent of such lines, left a bad impression and started an investigation that is still in progress. The chief bookkeeper ol the Maison Polrct, which sold dresses to Mrs. Dodge which hac not been declared, commuted suicide after it was revealed that a photograph of the receipted Poi- ret bill was In the hands of the United States customs officials. All these things may be sighted as ramifications of any change m French policy towards its Island possessions. Sentiment Favors Islands As much as prohibition agent- would like to see Saint Pierre and Minuc-lon as dry as their codfish, the wealthy wine growers and merchants of France would like to sec American prohibition repealed. There is in France a strong organization, with almost unlimited funds, whose aim is to popularize wine drinking and fight prohibition One of its stalwart spirits is Jean Henncssy, member of the oid Hennessy brand producing family, and a former Tardieu minister ol arrlcullurc whose name has been =ugKCsted as a possible candidate for'the presidency of the republic nc:;t year. It is no secret here, any than in the United Slates, that a icinarkaWe amount ol champagne, wines and liquors arc shipped to Saint Pierre and Miquelon. Recently published figures of the French State Hallways, regarding the amount of liquor and wine shipper! over Its lines to French ports, with Saint Pierre and Miquelon as their actual destination, caused astonishment and nol a little amusement. ., The value of this wine nnmiallj becomes a member of a good sor- ! w ho amounts to anything comes ority. attains a certain popularity, with the male students, learns rill . to agree with the young man i" • the end.

'This,"b"f course, sounds very much ; . miie. like the ordinary 'flaming youth" • '_ story of the popular magazines.; What hits the book from that class | is Miss White's evident sincerity and indignation. She recalls that! university is, in theory, a place j for study, a place where youns' people can get wider horizons and ' prepare themselves for broader, • fuller lives; and she points out, acidly, that Ihe average coeducational university does none ot these tilings for any but a very small minority of its students. "I Lived Tins Story," then, is a disturbing book. Its author finds the intellectual level of the big university extremely low. Thai, perhaps, is nol news ;yet it, is not reassuring to ga?.c on the picture Miss While paints to reflect thai | it is, in its cstcnliaH. a true pic- • lure, and to ponder on the vacuity, ' the provincialism and the narrow- ; ness of the characters she presents. !

The transport of these wines and liquors is. of course, a perfectly legitimate and legal business. There is no violation ol the law until smugglers succeed in gelling it within American jurisdiction, ll-.c questions arise: arc these jimiggucrs French and arc the Islanders illegally involved? Als-o could the governor ol the island, control the cargoes if requested to du so? Among other ramifications of the problem, irom the American prohibition agents' poml of view, is the fad that the prosperity of the islands is a matter of pride to France, where prohibition in the American tense is not tiudcrsood and wine is considered as much a toad as bread.
