WANTS FRANCE TO (
Governor Blaine Does Not
Want Debt Settlement -
Until France Stops Pres- '
ent War In Morocco.
Madison, Wis.. Sept. 24.— (A*) —Gov. J
Blaine, of Wisconsin, today made pub
lic a telegram he sent to President
Coolidge declaring that before conver
sations are entered upon with France
upon settlement of the war debt,. Am
erica should demand “a halt in this
ruthless warfare between the French
and Riffians in Morocco.”
“Caillnux, French finnace minister, '
landed in America today seeking ex
tension of time of payment of Frencli
debts due America and reduction of
interest thereon,” the telegram said.
"A few days ago dispatches carried
the news that France had sent a fleet
of 16 airships to fight the Riffians in
Morocco, and France boasted that
each airship dropped two tons of high
explosives upon the homes of Mo
roccans, killing defenseless men, wom
en and children.
“France is engaged in a competitive
undertaking in building larger armies
and navies and extending her terri- '
tories in the exploitation of weaker '
and smaller nations. The ruthless
warfare that France is making on the '
mountain folk of Morocco in the kill
ing of non-combatants and women
and children is nothing short of bar
barism. Before conversations are en- *
tet-od upon with France on the debt :
settlement, America should demand a ’
halt in this ruthless warfare. Before '
any confessions are made to France 1
or any other foreign government. '
America should demand that they
cease building larger armies and nav- 1
ios and cease their warfare on small- 1
er and weaker peoples.
"To advance the time of payment :
of America's debt owing by France as
wns (lone in the case of Great Britain,
means that the American taxpayer is
to be burdened for the benefit of for
eign governments in the pursuit of
war and exploitations. In the name
of humanity and decency I protest the
settlement of foreign debts until Am
erica has assurance that American
dollars will not be used for more war
and the murdering of helpless, de
fenseless .women and children."

Red Cross Campaign For Sweaters
For Ex-Service Men in Hospitals
• As we stated in the announcement
■ in Tribune the American
1 Red Cross has launched a campaign
‘ for 30,000 sweaters for ex-service men

' rus Chapter has been asked to furnish

small quota for our Chapter, aid it
has already been oversubscribed
thanks to the good people who have
the interest of our ex-service men at
heart. The reason for this campaign

fi by the time cold weather reaches us
'some of the men in the hospitals will
s suffer for lack of clothing if this pro
i- vis’on of sweaters is not made. Many
e of the men take only the clothes on

c pinch finds them without sufficient

French and American debt commis
sioners meeting here today to effect a
settlement of France's $4,000,000,000
war debt, pledged themselves to go into
issue as jiractical men, recognizing the
problems of each other, and desirous
of reaching a quick agreement.
France's position, stated by Jos.
Caillaux her minister of finance, was i
that her country had not forgotten
"what we owe to America for her
splendid work to end victoriously the
war, aad the generous help our people
received from citizens of the United
M. Caillaux spoke very briefly, ex
plaining that the hope of the French
is to reach a settlement that be not
only practical insofar as material in
terests are concerned, but one that
wottbl be worthy of the past of the
two great nations. He said the dis
cussions between the two commissions
should go forward "in such away as
to fortify peace and help the economic
stabilization of the world."
Secretary Mellon, head of the Amer

recognized the influence the present
conference may have on the peace of

of a settlement that would be fair to

The joint session today was com
paratively brief, lasting only a little
more than an hour. It was followed,
however, by a meeting of the Ameri

was prepared to talk over the general
situation among its own members.
The conclusion of the joint session
gave the French a test of treatment
by a small army of American newspa
per photographers. M. Caillaux took
the affair as a matter of course, and
frequently cautioned members of the
commission to sit still While the pic
tures were being made.
“I have come from France,” said
M. Caillaux at the opening of the con
ference "entrusted by my govern
ment to meet the obligations of 'ray
country toward the United States.
“Highly appreciative members of
our parliament belonging to all par
ties, chairmen or reporters of the fi

self, these gentlemen have the great

"We do not forget and no one in
our country will ever forget what we

to end victoriously the war, and for
the generous help our people received
from citizens of the United States in
