PARIS, (.f)--France today loots forward with fear as a declining ii-th rate seems likely to fall till Tower during the next lew ecades, while at the same time he possibilities of war are rising. There is a popular French, say- ng that sums the situation in their eyes (50,000,000 compared to France's | 40,000,000. Depression Darkens I'icturc Since the depression hit France, the excess of births over deaths have registered the lowest in ·re-- cent history. If the present trend continues, e x p e r t s announce, France will be reduced to a population of only 29,000,000 in 19B5. Moreover, every Frenchman feels ,, _ i ,_!_ country will face a that date, and he| 1 war before ·es: . "A country with a falling population attracts the invader. Moreover the fear is more directly centered in discussions pointing to Germany as Irencu vital statisticians announce figures showing that Germany s birth rate had fallen more sharply than France's before the ascendency ol the nazis, but since then has begun to soar. Today Germany counts roughly a population of war oeiorc uui u^Lt, "··- ··- knows that the population will go down even more sharply then.

"A nation without babies is a nation condemned to death, the league proclaimed. "If things go on as they are today, in 50 years we will have lost half of our population and France will be finished as a nation in the modern world. Grope for Ilemedy It is clear thatUhc French are on the defensive m tackling this problem of population. They know that the roots of the problem go back to the war, but they do not know how to remedy it. One thing is clear, (he war broke up the traditional French family life, lorcecl millions of widows and unmarried women into the factories and government posts, and naturally cut down at once the possibilities of motherhood. Since then other hundreds or thousands of women have been forced out of the home to supplement (he constantly falling wages of their husbands and menfolk. The mothers of France refuse to rear large families any more, the depression has made a bad situation worse, and the danger of war has made it a national calamity. In principle the French always have accepted the idea that workers with large families should receive additional pay according to the sivce of the family. Heads of families holding government posts today are paid S30 a year for the first child, 515 for the second, $92 for the third, $115 for the fourth and so on. · . Industry Not in Step What annoys the League Against Depopulation and many of the French political parties is the fact that in business and industry family allowances are three or four times less and in many cases give nothing for the first and second children in a family. In an economy where the producers are all consumers, prosperity naturally rill run into a blind alley, they ay, and announce that compul- ory family allowances in all inns try form one of the requisites f recovery. . . Leon Blum, as prime minister, once said: "The Tbirlh of a baby in a poor or modest family should no longer remain a piece of bad luck, which condemns the whole , faim , 1y TM° more poverty, and bad health. We agree that women's work should not be a necessity and that the wages of any worker should be enough to take care of the whole family." But devaluation, rising prices continued business stagnation and the imminence of an European conflict do not give much hope that anyone will be able to solve this problem soon.
