Ittrestlng - tight U thrown on the French pol loy toward th American debt In th last few years by the publics tlon of secret Instructions by for naer Premier Polncalrs and his minister of finance. Lest eyre, the French expert, Parrnentler when - he was sent to Washington In 1922 The Instructions say France fully recognizes her debt but finds the American dent funding: law un acceptable. The document asserts there can be no separate settle ments but should be a general set tlement of all war debts. Germany' having: nothing, and France having: therefore been obligated to reconstruct her devastated regions wholly with her own resources, the Instructions continue, It is absolutely lmpossiblo for France to pay its arrears oh po litical debts to the United States. LOAN FOB ALLIED VICTORY. "This debt was contracted to in sure common victory of the allies,' ays the statement.' "It weighs more heavily on France than on any other country, for France, invaded and bruised, was obliged to buy abroad the major part of Its arms and ammunition as well as part of the foodstuffs and manu-, factures necessary to the subsistence of its troops and civilians, because of the exceptionally large proportion of able bodied men mobilized. "A nation of such noble and elevated sentiments as the United States certainly does not expect that repayment of our political debts shall be given precedence oyer our sacred reparations expense. "An opposite priority was formulated by President "Wilson and recognized b all the allies When they accepted the fourteen points." Parrnentler then was instructed to inform the debt commission fully regarding France's financial situation, emphasizing particularly fhflt FVanop'a TitiHtarv hlldcrpt lmrl been reduced in larger proportion that that of any other country. FREXCH CAPACITY. "You must not fail to point out," Parrnentler was told, "that pur present difficulties are in no respect attributable to France itself, but are Imposed on France solely as direct or indirect consequences of the aggression she has undergone. "Despite the exhaustion caused by unprecedented sacrifices made to the common cause, France, has assumed fiscal burdens which seem to have reached the maximum of her capacity and which would suffice-to balance the budget if Germany had fulfilled Its obligations." -' " Given these circumstances the memorandum continues. France can make no promises concerning the American debt. M. Parmentier was forbidden to accept any conditions whatever or even by silence to allow the debt commission to think that France acquiesced in the terms of the American debt funding law.

The bells of Blackawton, in Devonshire, shall not ring because the men who know how to ring them will not promise to keep the Lord's day holy. The bellB of the parish church were once famous in the county, but they have not been rineing for ten years. Rev. William Charnell, the 72-year-old vicar, .has made another drive for proper bell ring-ps and has failed to find the right kind of . men. He posted a notice Inviting application from seven men who understood change ring-Jng, but added "they must be men of good moral character, and who are In the habit of keeping holy the Lord's day." He offered a bonus for those who would guarantee to attend three services out of four.

Y. M. C A. The appreciation of the citizen was shown by-the -crowds at the buildings and grounds. A short program was arranged, and Rev. Nelson Pryor, pastor of First A. XI. E. church, acted as master of ceremonies- Addresses were delivered by Dr. Newman, In regard to the years when he acted as secretary on part time while he was attending the dental college. But, upon his graduation and beginning practice of his profession, it became necessary that the organization secure a full-time secretary. Hence they now have Attorney Wm. E. Watkins, a former Y sec retary, of Twelfth street branch, Washington, D. C. Rev. G. C. Coleman, of Nortn Oakland Baptist church, gave a short address on the history of the organization. He said. In part, "that a little more than ten years ago, owing to the rapid growth of Oak land, Rev. Li. A. Brown aeciaea the time was then due that some provision be made for a x. M. C A- for this group. He spoke to sev eral public-spirited and race-lov ing men, resulting in a campaign being launched by which $500 was raioed to apply on a building for such an organization. The Central M. C. A. still retails this money to be so used when needed for the nuroose for which it was collected. He spoke of the splendid work and cooperation furnished to the group by both Rev. J. M. Brown, then pastor of Firsit A. M. E. church. and Rev. Washington, then pastor, of Bethel A. M. E. church, of San Francisco. He closed by stating hat hi church, in an after roller-ion, had raised the sum of J6.50 o be applied on tne current ex penses of this branch. Miss Ruth Moore, the executive secretary of the Linden branch, Y. I C. A., spoke on uie value or co operation. She said: "That upon a visit from Secretary Attorney Watkins, she had given him the names and addresses of the very best workers she had ' in her branch. This resulted in these women forming an auxiliary commit tee to the men's branch. They had already rendered valuable services to this new organization. Othere making addresses were Father Wallace of Saint Augustine Episcopal church; E. B. Gray, a real estate dealer, and Master Alexander Turner, a member of the organization, who spoke on its value to him. Attorney W. E. Watkins was introduced and said: "No credit was due him. as it was the fine spirt of cooperation of both the crfcirches and the general public that had made it possible for the dedicatory exercises." He then told of his plans to secure a membership of 1000 and for equipping the plant with necessary things to carry out the program of the institution. He read the following list of donations for which he wished to give thariks: 18 electric bulbs, gift of the Swastika club of Berkeley; window draperies, auxiliary committee of women of the Y. M. C- A. Kitch en and pantry draperies, by Mrs. John Creigg. of Eerkeley. The following were the gift of Jackson Furniture company of Oakland: Dining room table, kitchen table, gas range, water heater and six chairs. And from Breuner Furniture company, two davenports: from Mrs. Ceoyla Brown, one rug:' from Mrs. Dora Anderson, one half dozen cups and saucers. The use of Saint Augustine grill room for the rest of the year free, from Fat-tfer Wallace, and six months' subscription to The Oakland TRIBUNE from Secretary W. E. Wat kins. The following are board of managers of the branch: Rev. Nelson Pryor, Father Wallace. E. B. Gray, Rev. Coleman and A. M. .Smith. The exercises were attended by Wm. Gillanders, of the Central Y. M. C. A. Rev Pryor then said that while muc hhad been said concerning the organization, no one had said a word about the needs of the same. Of the money they received from the central Y. M. C. A., which was made possible through the Community Chest drive, that $60 went to pay the salary of the secretary, which was about one-half of a living wage for a man with a wife and child, and that 20 was allotted for Y. M. C. A. quarters. This building rosts 147 a month rent. And to- with current expenses it would be necessary for the church es and the general public to supply the remainder of the money. Of this.

June 12. - The pretty butterflies of Chinese night life, the sing-song girls, whose entertainment1- consists purely of singing and reciting and who adorn themselves In brilliant array, jewelry and colorful silks, are now facing a slump In demand for their services and some of them have been forced to extremes. ' Two extremes. Two sing-song girls appeared at the Mixed court to testify against two robbers , who had held them up in the early hours of the morning and . robbed them of jewels worth $300. Their predicament was brought out in court when thev were forced to admit that they did not own their brilliant adornments, but in common with many others of their profession they had been compelled to rent their jewelry by the month. As a result an extensive and elaborate jewelry hire service has arisen in Shanghai,' and the girls by spending a few-dollars a month could wear enough jewelry to stir envy in any millionaire's breast. The system exacts that the girl must sign a note guaranteeing to, pay for the jewels if lost and also provide shop security to guarantee her credit. Only the stars, the queens of the flower circles, can afford to own their own jewels. Ulster Drinking, Declared.

Al though the Philippine Islands are the largest, overseas market for American cotton manufacturers, the Philippine tariff, unrevised since 1909, is so low on many Items that two-fifths of the cotton manu facturers trade of the Islands goes to otner countries than the United States., The liisular cotton tariff has become one for revenue onlv according to Investigations by the American Chamber of Commerce. jniring the nr-st quarter of this year the total value of seven types or cotton goods imported into the islands was $5,136,637, of which $3,060,375 worth came from the United States. Japan and China supplied J.706.3!.ri square yards of muslins, the I nited States 1.34S !52. Due to cheap labor the goods trom the Oriental countries sold at a cheaper price than that from America. The United States supplied 7,600,941 yards of bleached goods, of a total of 9,228,903. but Japan alone outsold the mother country by nearly 60 per cent In dyed cotton textiles, the United States supplying 2,055,694 vards and Japan 2.972, 4S6. Great Britain sold the islands 1,020,214 yards of tliisVI,iss of goods. American nianufactuerers had about SO per cent of the cotton prints market, with Japan and Great Britain as leading Competitors. Japan enjoys almost a monopoly of the cotton underwear trade, which amounted during the three month to $251,81,8 and Great in ii;nn gin me nous snare or ine $:'7S.151 thread trade. The chamber of commerce, composed of America! business' men interested in American trade with the islands, calculates that the United States lost $2,000.0011 in cot- tan goods trade due 'to the low tariff, while the Philippine govern ment gained about $350,000 in duties colleceted on foreign cottons.

The reduction is partly due to the high price of whisky, which has been more than quadrupled. It is also partly due to the restrictive liquor legislation of the northern government.

By Radio to The Oakland TRIBUNE and the iCiucago Daily Newi. PARIS, June 12. It is reliably reported that Outrey, deputy from v rencn inao-c nina, proposed re cently in a secret session of the col onial commission that the chamber of deputies cede to the United States two million acres of lund in Cambogla, for the pujviose of growing rubber. Outrey's idea was that the United States, in return for this land, should cancel a large part of the French debt. The Question is said to have been referred to a subcommittee for further study. The idea of ceding part of the French colonies to the United States in payment of the war debt has been suggested repeatedly, but never before in this form. There is strong opposition to giving ui the West Indian colonies of Mnv-tinlque and G uaileloupe, as was suggested in the United States senate, but there would doubtless be less objection to ceding a part of Indo-C'hiiia. Nevertheless. French opinion Is profoundly reluctant to see the national territory diminished for any reason whatsoever after a victorious war. (Copyright, 1926, The Chicago Dally Newi.)
