You sea the chamber of commerce had led these folks to the mountains (you can always trace all devilment to a chamber of commerce). The chamber didn't figure It would snow. But It did snow. Well, you take a southern Callforntan and put him in a snowdrift, or anywhere -else, where he can't see a filling station or a cafeteria, and he is ready to write out his will. There wasn't a 'suit of long underwear In the bunch. Now we got to set 'em under these orange trees for three months to thaw 'em out.

Reports of Moratorium Declared "Fairy Tales By FRANCIS M. STEPHENSON (Anitwitited Prc*n Leaned Wire) . W ARM SPRINGS, Ga., Feb. 1.—President-elect Roosevelt shielded his plans for dealing with war debts and world economics today as he consulted with experts In this field. Reports from abroad about various proposals assumed to be In the Roosevelt mind, Including one for a three-year moratorium on war debts, were laughed away by the presi- dentelect. Some friends described such accounts as "fairy tales." Realizing the world economic conference probably cannot be held before the last of May at the earliest, there are signs that Mr. Roosevelt In dealing with tht war debtors will restrict his bargaining to tariff agreements. He has never said what ha Intends to do. It was emphasized here that only details of procedure were discussed at the Sunday meeting between Mr. Roosevelt and Ambassador Lindsay of Great Britain. The speech today or Sir Neville Chamberlain, chancellor of the British exchequer, stating that his country did not consider concessions necessary in talking debt relief with the United States brought no response here. Mr. Roosevelt is saying nothing but planning a lot. He has always been an advocate of the theory of old*fashloned tracing, and no doubt he Intends to-do some.
