S. and Passion for Armaments Scored (Associated Press Leased Wire) W ASHINGTON, Jan. 20.—Prance was labeled a "thorough In grate" In the Senate today by Sen ator Arthur Robluson, Republican, Indiana, In an address criticizing that nation's war debts payment default and ' expressing opposition to anj ; cuncelatlon or reduction. IWblnson, chairman of the Judiciary subcommittee considering the bill of Senator Johnson, Republican, Callforhla, which would prohibit notation In thin country of defaulting nations' securities, approved that measure and urged Its enactment. Warlike Spirits Deplored "Tho republic of France," he said, "Is entitled to no consideration 1 from us. ... If slio would think more of pence, less of war, cut down her enormous armaments and exhibit tho strength of character nations are expected to possess, she could pay her honest obligations to the American people and never miss the money Involved. Embarrasses U. S. "Furthermore, throughout the past year, she has continuously done everything possible _to embarrass this country economically, In fact, her withdrawals of Bold from America at one time were so barefaced as to be positively unfriendly. "It Is a tragic thing to «ee France, who has received so much from the United States and the American people, turn Into tho thorough Ingrate she has <jome to be. Her policy Is undoubtedly ruinous and If she continues along the route she Is now pursuing, she will find at no distant future date that she Is without frletids when she needs them most." Robinson wild that tho "paltry amount" of the defaulted French debt payment was only a fraction of her national Income and "perhaps not more than 7 per cent of the amount •he spends annually for armaments." • Ingratitude Shocks "France, together with some smaller countries, largely under her influence, 1ms recently given an exhibition of Ingratitude that .shocked the world," Robinson continued. • Observing that "America saved her life and' then furnished the money for l*>r economic rehabilitation," llobln- son said, "In tho most flagrant manner" Vratico has repudiated that obligation, and added: "A man who refuses to pay his honest debts Is without standing, esteem or respect In this community. Franco, and other world defaulters, have placed themselves In this category In world opinion."

This -fact was called to the attention of the fact-finding committee, headed by Senator David P. Bush, Oakdale, with the suggestion it be kept in mind "In determining the amount set aside for rental of buildings by the state."

At present leases may be signed for,any length of tlmo as long o.a the rent does not obligate the state's credit for more than $300,000 a month." "Tho second measure would restrict sale and 1 purchase of bonds by the state by requiring that all such transactions be made by a Joint commission of the director of finance, state controller aryl state treasurer."
