France's New Strategy rpHE arrival of M. George Bonnet, the new French ·*· Ambassador to the United States, naturally raises the question of why he has been sent at this time. In France, no secret is made of the fact that he is not merely another diplomatic representative, but an important political personage who has been entrusted with a special mission. ·- This special diplomatic, mission is not primarily the negotiation of a new war-debt settlement. That war debts will eventually be a subject of discussion between France's ambassador and the government in Washington is obvious. But there is every : likelihood that any sanguine hopes of immediate negotiations or early agreement would be doomed to disappointment. . . . M. Bonnet's object in coming to America' is both ;less precise and more important. It might be summarized essentially as an effort to obtain the more active aid of the United States in the preservation of European peace. What France hopes for, and M. Bpnnet seeks, is the development and extension of Anglo-Franco-American collaboration--as exemplified, by the recent tri-partite monetary accord- broader realms of commercial, economic and, ally, political action. "The; time has come," said a member of the French government and particularly close associate of Premier Leon Blum recently, "to complete this accord with more general economic and political agreement." This does not necessarily mean, as has been asserted, that M. Bonnet has come over here to "rope America in on preparations for the next European war." Surely there is a significant distinction between seeking America's help in the preservation of peace through the removal of economic maladjustments which lead 'toward war, and simply seeking American support in resigned anticipation of another \var. ' One might confidently hazard the prediction that M. Bonnet will succeed in his American mission to the degree that this distinction is strictly adhered to, and his diplomatic efforts genuinely confined to furthering the development and intensification of that primarily economic collaboration between Europe and the United States which both President Hooseyelt and Secretary of State Cordell Hull have frequently advocated and endeavored to plitjnto practice. they've Done Pretty Well A GREAT deal of sympathy has been directed at the parents of the Dionne quintuplets, on the ground that their babies were taken, from-them, and .they themselves forced to play "second fiddle" to the doctor and nurses in charge of the famous five. Much criticism of the Canadian government has been voiced, because it stepped in and created a dominion guardianship to remove the children from parental control; : One can sympathize with the parents, and yet realize that the government undoubtedly acted for the best interests of all concerned. Yesterday the i government guardian resigned, expressing the belief that the world-famous little girls will soon be re-united with their parents and brothers and sisters. They have been brought past the dangerous age with the best of care, and are now apparently stout and strong, able to face the future with no more than normal hazards to be expected. · Financially, the guardianship has been a great success. _ By wise 1 dealing with those who wished to exploit the quints, a fortune of more than half a million dollars has been piled up for them, in trust. And it will continue to grow. That Papa Dionne could have done as well, or as well protected the youngsters from being rushed around the country for exhibition and other unseemly and dangerous methods of exploitation, is certainly to be doubted. It may be recalled that before the government .stepped in, Dionne had agreed to let the babies, then mere infants, be exhibited in a ·Chicago world's fair side show. The Dionnes, instead of feeling aggrieved, may well thank the dominion government for doing a better job for their famous daughters than they could possibly have done. Spying Unnecessary JOHN S. FARNSWORTH, a former naval lieuten- J ant commander, must serve a sentence of from 4 to 12 years in a federal penitentiary for conspir- ipg to sell information in regard to the United States navy to Japan. . The sentence is none too. drastic for the crime of treason, the offense really committed by the former naval officer. The seriousness of the situation lies in (he belief that any country should regard it as necessary to obtain information in regard to the army and navy operations of another. _ Spying is a creation of war sentiment. Our nation has no intention of goins to war with Japan or any other country. No nation need fear that we have any ideas of aggressive warfare. Other nations need not hire spies to obtain reflections of our citizens. They are always for peace rather than for war. Attempts to obtain surreptitious information are foolish as well as futile. This King Business q-HE controversy which touches on England's coronation and the crown jewels still seems to be sputtering jn spite of the best intentions of the empire to forgive and forget.

Something must have raised hob with their health. EDITOR'S MAIL BAG HABITS CAUSE COMMON1LL PREDISPOSING FACTORS in case of constipa- ·*· lion are: . 1. IMPROPER FOOD AND DRINK. One of the simplest causes is starvation. Many physicians believe that almost as many people undereat as overeat This is especially true in school children, who rush off with inadequate breakfast, and go through the day with concentrated and inadequate food The 5°i?. e i v | lel ' e * here . is no individual assigned to the '""Ping, where the mother and father both woi'k and all the children go to school, is the prize example of this sort of a situation. Adequate bulk is the most important requirement in the diet of this type of constipation. People wh o ~ Ch ange. their i die t" from , time to time, or take! for' 1 a time less amounts than they are accustomed to as in traveling,, visiting or taking a sea voyage, are apt to have megular action, which is a common experience. Fussy and capricious appetites _. are another cause which lead to Uenifemni diminished total bulk in the diet. This creates a vicious circle.

If yielding to lawbreakers, ignoring court decisions and repudiating the oath of office (which binds the executive to uphold the constitution) are qualifications lor high office, then Mr. Murphy is excen- tionally well qualified. Mr. Murphy ranks with Mr. Roosevelt in that respect. If Tommy forcibly takes Jimmy's coaster wagon papa must never punish Tommy. That would indicate that he belonged to the "horse and buSKy" age. Tommy's "human rights" must take precedence over Jimmy's "property rights!" Undoubtedly .tommy will become more efficient as he grows old- are have laxative effects. 2. THE MEDICINE HABIT. _, B USE ai Ja live and cathartic drugs is often more potent in causing constipation than curing it. Not only that but they bring many serious complications, such as hemorrhoids, fissures, mucous colitis and even ul- cerauon. Many a chronic case of constipation has been cured, and this includes attendant symptoms of heaviness and discomfort in the abdomen, simply by stopping the use of cathartics. The enema habit is just as bad. It means that the individual is consciously tekmg over the functions of the lower W A r HABIT TIME.

Ts Johns Hopkins on the One Eight Trail? am going to be more than - 1 '- 1 -"-- interested in the . new policy with respect to intercollegiate athletics recently announced by Johns Hopkins uni~ " e ,TM lty o£ Baltimore, as follows: The university has placed athletics at the level which they would occupy if in the realm of collegiate sports there were' no such thing as a recruited football team and no gold mine of gate receipts to be tapped." In practical effect this means that Johns Hopkins has abolishec gate receipts at its athletic contests. Hereafter admission tickets wilt be issued free, with students and alumni getting preference in the distribution* The Wisconsin State Journal published at Madison, has this to say about the plan: "We don't know how long the policy will remain in force, but we feel that it is the only way in which collegiate sports can be given 'back to the boys' as so many reformers insist should be done. It is one of two ways in which collegiate sports can be made honest and above-board. The other is to pay the performers enough of the gate receipts which their performances produce to enable them to remain bona fide students without subterfuge or resort to questionable practices. "All those who think the Big Ten conference will do either will now join in a big, resounding cheer." This isn't quite my view of it. I realize, the imperfections of the intercollegiate athletic setup. But I still believe it has far more to its credit than to its discredit. '· For every person harmed by participation in such competition, I venture there are ten who are benefited. Ditto for thos,e who are spectators. "Let Me Live in a House FAR AWAY From the Eoad!" (^g*^ caught this paraphrased '^JSr^ version of an old favorite . on the second bounce. It was passed along by a South Federal business house to the Cerro Gordo County Safety Council headquarters and it was from the safety council that I received it. It follows: "Let me live in a house away from the road where the cars and the trucks go by; where the noise and din and the rattle of tin ring loud through the midnight sky. Where the sirens shriek.like a fire alarm and backfires like cannon roar. I've sold that shack and I'm not going back to live there any more. "The maple that stood where it looked so good, with seats beneath its shade, was hit by a truck it was my hard luck--when the brakes failed down the grade. The sparkling spring with its babbling brook that flowed through the meadow green, along its brink looks a bit like ink, and it smells like gasoline. "I'd like to live by the side of -he road and be a friend to man; and freely give of the life I live but I don't believe I can. I've lost my nerve watching 'Dead Man's Curve,' where the maimed and the dying call, where through the night, from a glaring light, strange ghosts dance on my wall. "I'm moving back from that old race track, from the din and the traffic's roar, to a little home where the roses bloom and the- birds sing 'round my door; where he trees in bloom give a sweet perfume--a part of an infinite 5lan; where the sun shines bright and I sleep all night and feel like friend to man."
