Louis Barihou, French loreign minister itntl former pfc'- mier, told me that, wive for a miracle, Otrmany iias ktllco disarmament by arming. As a result, he frankly admitted. Euroix.' today confronts a grave situation. Indeed, it was precisely because of the gravity of th; hour dial M. Barthou consented to depart from his "no interview" rule and explain his country's position to the American peopb tlncifgh the medium of this newspaper. "Grinmny's action hus dimmed hO]>c almost to the vanishing point," he declared. "She has quit the League of Nations and left ths; .disarmament conference, and again and again reaffirmed Iiei intention not to return until an arms convention is concluded satisfying her every demand. "I will not say Ihere is no pos-' Mbilily of accord at Geneva. But while I am an optimist, 1 do not believe in, or expect, niiniclcs. "I-rance, of course, is at Geneva lor the General Disarmament Commission sessions which o|K?ned May 29. We shall explore every avenue which might i>ossitjly lead to scinclhing useful. But Germany is absent, arming. F.ii3l ID'Aims Pact Hope "That, above all. is what makes the situation Ee?m so hopel?s.s. It war, long ago rrcognized by tlw United Slates. Great Britain, and Ihe olhcr powers that for Gsr- niany lo rearm would be disastrous, if not fatal, to th? whole cause of disarmament. Now that is exactly what flic, is doing. "While the world was ar : Geneva trying to finn a solution t( an admittedly, and obviously, dif- fici;ll problem — lor what the world demands is a decrease, not ati increase, iu armaments—Germany walked out of the League and out of the conference uno flammed the door behind her. • "Quite 'easily and comprehensibly the world's efforts at disarmament m.^rit have ended then and there. That, they did not do so is a striking testimonial to the good lailh nnrt sincerity of the nations which are honestly striving fqr icduction. Despite the setback, they continued to exchange views outside the conference, in ths hope ol reaching an accord.

Science has taken an interest in the home of late years, and has done much to lighten the burdens of household tasks. Science.has harnessed electricity to make it perform a sort of "Aladdin magic." It works for us, twenty-four hours a day—and its pay is low considering the labors it accomplishes. It furnishes light and,heat. It sweeps the carpets and polishes the floors. It runs the sewing machine and washes the dishes. It toasts the bread and percolates the morning cup of coffee. It beats tiie eggs; it stirs the dough and bakes the bread; and last, but not least, it furnishes the power for the radio to entertain day and night. / i .' • jti . >, \ \ LHJMIft.
