Paris. (AF) Leon Blum, destined to become the French premier, re nounced today any idea that the new leftist government will wage "a war of propaganda or reprisal." As for France's' war debt to the United States, he told the American Club: "In France we believe the question of debts is wiped out." He called the debt issue "a tragic misunderstanding between the two countries." Although he said. "I hope with all my heart this misunderstanding can nuickly be eliminated," he gave no indication that he intended as premier to reopen a discussion of the debt. Avowing France's desire to "live at peace with all. Blum fedded it was j only natural that France would 4ean toward special friendships with nay tions which, like her, are passionately j attached to public, civil, and personal j liberty" and "the same ideal of social justice." See War Opposition Observers interpreted Blum's remarks as an attempt to refute any idea that France would be driven Into a war with Germany or Italy because of hatred for Fascism. Coincident with his speech, it was reported that Edouard Herriot, radical-socialist leader, was being : considered as Blum's choice for the foreign ministry. Herriot, known as a friend of the United States, once lost the premiership when he fought French refusal to pay the war debt.
