France has cnitalned ererr thock of war. Some of the Iklreat portions of *er,:JeTrttpix kare been overran, and others are useless except for mffitarr operations. Now, with characteristic adjustability, the French are transforming emergency Into opportunity. Iii all their . preparations lor reconstracUon when peace conres .they.-are.-applying.-are principles that-harrrEbeS ' dation ot their ".efBciehcy liflhe. war. They propose to'; keep mobilized for"a" considerable period after the'war Is over that spirit of unity, CD-operation and. concentration !n -enterprise that has kept them from vassalage since those things for which this comitry lu th. ·».rh«TMn the past has looked to Germany. Hhe refuses to consider resuming purchases the, war began, France sees clearly tbe doable na- · tare of «er problem. She must re- · store "the \-oontrr Itself nj most reestablish i:s relationship'-with ptber countries. 7n doing both she looks to. the TJnJted States for help,, e proposes to purchase in this-country vast of ,ra_ material, jmildlng sap- her-: colonies · or -irom other ;;" woirk ·* rehVbDltaHon.!

The RcpnMIcnn Committee of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture, which .was founded in 1014 under the auspices of the Ministry of Commerce. has been surveying the possibilities of the French coionles. and of friendly countries to ascertain where products formerly Imported from Germany arc to be obtained. The French government is now concluding agreements for materials with countries which, It la hopedr will prove to be permanent sources of supply. ' In preparation to meet German, com- mercial competition after the war the French are iryinp now through the medium of great fairs, IlUe those nt Lyons, to acquaint nil the world xvlth the excellence of tnetr wares, a$d also to .learn ^rom the exhibits of others where French Importers may look for their requirements. The French war debt at the close of this ycnr prohahly will lie nearly 524,000.000,000, or nbouc four times wha.t It vras before ilic war. For several years Franc*? ims been a lender to Russia, and the present state of that country has postponed the payment of this debt. Trobabty Great Britain and the United States will help their ally with this burden, but even th.;n the task will tahe time to accomplish. Franco has certiiin elements of strength, however, upon which sho is relying to restore her former prosperity. She has a spCendld climate, a rich sofl and an industrious, and thrifty population, With her coal and iron mines, her crops, of wheat, grains, hemp, flai- and jute, her skill In the manufacture of leather, hosiery, cotton goods, glassware and silk goods, her future IB exceptionally bright There, will probniily pans from view7 lor ZL IM THC . ·KE-OF-- GERMANY'S ** .,_.

Her leaders look forward to a long period, of standardized, quantitative production for the markets of new countries, They eircct also ro erplolt*tJbe colonies that can purchase. raw materials and absorb finished products. Until her debts are paid France will be a nation of traders. France has gone steadily toward her goal of bringing foreign trade under the strictest control, and her government proposes to Insure the country against any private Interference with the wort of rebuilding and 'rehabilitation. She nrast have easy and cheap communication with her colonies and with other countries. The prime essential is ships. All sen-going vessels haTe been requisitioned fnr government sexv- A rcftnu as jaiTa try u merit and an allowance for tbe maintenance, working and other things made. Ship owner* themselves mnnngQ their fleet! aad of* encouraged to moke them as afffrcttal as'possible by the distribution ot bonuses nnd the replacing ot thlpathat are srank. Ships cannot now be buQt In France The iUnlster of Maritime Transport and Merchant Marine holds that t* bring materials from the United States or England would handicap French shipbuilders because of the cost of materials and transportation. Thta would mean that French erportem would have to pay higher freight rates to the owners after the ships were In tha water. This would place not ooiy «r- porters but all French Industry trade* a handicap In the competition for after- war markets. It Is proposed, therefore, that the state shall replace destroyed ships, as it can buy materials more cheaply, and therefore ""Hll be able to contract for new ships on a basis of insuring reasonable rates to the trader. The government contracts to rnplace ships in this manner within tbree years after the war, these ship* becoming the absolute property ot those from whom their equivalent* havo. been requisitioned. On the other hand^ the Ministry proposes to build a state-owned fleet for the colqpies, which will be managed by ship owners, the state sharing in th» profits and deficits. There, will be no more subsidies or ships In which this government has no interests. With these plans go proposed harbor IBV provement, France has today no harbor where ships of the largest type* can dock. The government plans further to co-ordinate railroads and skipping lines, especially across tbe Mediterranean to Algiers and Tunis, While France cannot avoid making extensive purchases of building materials and machinery abroad, she phini to curtail largely her food Imports. Wheat, barley and rye are grown ordinarily, but' the war has brought many changes, and the French are getting acquainted . with the cheaper ceroals, such as Indian corn, mlltot and rice flour. In the government report on war economy It was recommended that every parcel of sotl aot cultivated be so^n without delay wi.th, wheat, barley, Indian com and oata, and planted with potatoes and vegetables. Legislation to Increase agricultural production is being framed. Deserted territory wfll be cultivated. A back- to-Che-farm movement has been Inaugurated, and bonuses are to be given to those who abandon their ancient Implements for modern agricultural machinery. France has no snch resources of men and materials as have Great Britain, and the United States. She Tinder- stands that without tbe most Intense application of energy to such resources as she hns, Increased production, elimination of all waste, and a resolute effort to "win foreign markets, ih« will be tunable to regain her standing among commercial nations. That effort she is making. She Invites th« United States to establish relation* with ber that wfl! be of mwraal benefit. Tbere is for this country no for service and proftt. !"SlV!OKY;JOE7rWOOO.IS . . SURPJRISE;TO'MANAGERS s lias jcilned .. . . :' Doc'Swtglcr has;, been a lUe-saver ltd. the.

'In the report .of the torpedoing of the Anchor liner Cameronia with troops in. the'Mfiditerrauean last Kummer, mention .wiis made of the splendid conduct oC the captain's boy, Mar.b- f innon.. This youngster was on the t bridge with the captain when the ship j was struct, and, he did piuch to. allay the. excitement, b'y shouting through I the megaphone ' to; Olo troops, "keep i yonr. heads, men. Dlnna get eiclted. ! It's a' ridiU Kae hurry,** and so on. i The sight of tha small boy with a megaphone as big as himselt advising the soldiers to keep cool made many laugh and quieted many nerves.. The boy did many other tilings, and at the end the captain found he hud disobeyed orders and wis still on the [ bridge ·when everyone else had left the i chip. "When the captain told'him to I "clear out," he snld, 'Til no go till you ) go, sir." Tl-.a captain then caught him j by the coat'and slung him overboard into the destroyer before jumping-him- eelf. An eyewitness on the destroyer described seeing the captain and the boy on the bridge of the sinking ship. , I.-hear now that Macldnnon -went down in the Tnscanla.

On the fast cruisers that convey the troop ships across Ul« sea, the Y. M. 0. A. movies are in many cases-the only recreation the sailors have. Owing to the need of cnotlon about showing lights, and owing to thetfact that coal fills most of the space in the ship, these shows have to be given below flecks.in highly restricted ..^quarters.
