(Special CaHe to Tht 0klnfl THIB0NE and the Chicago Daily News.) - PARIS, Aug. 17. Germany anil France are coming to an important agreement In one sphere this week, at exactly the Fame time they.are reaching'serious differences In another. Negotiations for a hard and fast Franco-German commercial treaty, -which- have- been under -way -for "many months are expected fo reach a conclusion today and most observers believe this will result In a definite accord. Such an accord ig planned to include a most-fa-vorert-nation clause and would smooth out customs annoyances across the Rhine, making provisions for governing the. steel cartel and perhaps give Germany certain commercial rights in French North Africa. w 11 BILLION FRANCS. The chief stumbling block, bo far as the present negotiations are concerned, is the French feeling that the Germans would gain more from the treaty at present than the French. The amount of business under t h e present provisional agreement is calculated at 11 billion francs, of which more than six and a half billions represents French exports, a tidy favorable balance. On the French side it is' clear this figure would mount If the negotiations were successful in eliminating the German duty on silks, linens and some agricultural products. Before waiving the duty, the Germans want corresponding free entry into France for gome of their electrical machinery, and chemical products. The negotiations have been extended many months and re-opened several times, but unless a last minute hitch occurs, an agreement is thought imminent. On the other side a serious divergence of opinion continues regarding occupation of the Rhine-land. Here, in the political sphere no such agreement is likely as is promised in the economic field. All France has been stirred by the speeches of German extremists and considerable mystery surrounds the report of General Guil-lamaut, chief of the Rhineland army of occupation. DENIES FIRST REPORT. The general made public a report of Increased German activity in the Rhineland and then is said, when called before the cabinet, to explain, to have repudiated this . --first report and denied he said any-' "thing about "feverish military ac-- .tivity." - There is a good deal of irritation in the French press over this confusion Foreign Minister Briand received Ambassador Von Hoesch again today and it is a foregone conclusion that an outline of the French viewpoint was given the Germans In preparation for the September meeting of the League of Nations council where the Rhineland is sure to be a paramount issue. At present the British have an army of 7300 on the Rhine, the French 66,700, and the Belgians 6200.. It is extremely unlikely in the face of public opinion that, the French will reduce their force by more than 6000. This, however, would amount to almost a 10 per cent reduction and might satisfy the Germans. (Copyright, 1927, the Chicago, Daily New) l Use it for frying ocand know how good, fried food can taste.

" " When he had recovered from his surprise at the approach of os youthful a bareback cavalier, Police Officer A. B.

"Well, you better take him back," said Salmonson, concluding the in-terview, "if you park him with the rest of the flivvers, ..nd get off, you'll never be able to climb back on again without a ladder." So Freddie kicked his bare heels into the flanks of his horse and plodded on to find the best place he could to watch the race.
