NAtiqn.al security, a return. to a
spund financial condition, and re-
building of the devastated regions
will be the three considerations up-
permost in the minds of the French
delegates to the Dis'armament confer-
ence, acoprding to Professor) Charles
B, Vibbert, of the philosophy depart-
ment, in a lecture on "Franoe's Po-
sition Ir the Disarmament Confer-
ence." at the Congregational church
Sunday night,
Professor Vibbert, who up to a year
ago was in close touch with condi-
tions in France, pointed out that
France's northern frontier was far
from strategic as a line of defense.
He showed howl no natural boundary
separated France from Germany, all
the efforts of the Nationalist party to
make the Rhine the frontier having
failed. For this reason, he said,1
France's greatest concern, is that of
national security, and no plan for lim-;
itation of armaments which does not
guarantee this will be considered by
the delegation,
Finance Next in Importance
France's second concern, according
to Professor Vibbert, is that of fin-;
ance. France's financial condition, asl
showw by the exchange rate, is well-
nigh desperate, so much so that since,

That is the kind of a glass you
want when you buy your
BEVERAGES of

the war the national budget has been
made to balance only with the great-
est difficulty. The three main means
;f raising money: foreign loans, loans
from citizens, and direct taxation, are
practically exhausted. Foreign loans!
are out of the question on account of
the high rate of interest, and France's
citizens are individually in too seri-
ous, a financial condition to respond
to national appeals to any great ex-
tent. The main solution seems to be
paymetn of the indemnity, none of
which has as yet been received by
France.
The third major concern in the
minds of the delegates, says Profes-
sor Vibbert, will be that of rebuild-
ing the devastated areas in northern
France. Although much of the land
1aid waste there has again been
brought under cultivation, and make-
shift roads and bridges have been con-
structed, buildings have not been re-
stored to any great extent. This is
largely due to lack of funds, and re-
flects back directly to that problem,
Must Guard Own Security
"Anyone not in close touch with the
situation in France cannot fully ap-
preciate it," said Professor Vibbert.
"Franc3 is willing to do all that can
be done toward limitation of arma-
ments and world peace, but her first
consideration, very logically, since
neither Germany nor Russia will be
represented in the conference, will be '
that of national security, a guarantee
of which will alone afford a working
basis for negotiations."

Early in the afternoon he appeared
at a fraternity house and after giving
several references was permitted to
borrow a saxaphone. The lender,
growing suspicious, telephoned the
persons mentioned and discovered that
no one on the list had heard of Long,
and that the address given for te
dance was the home of a minister. The
owner immediately called the Uni-
versity Music house, and described the
instrument to Mrs. Minnie M. Root,
proprietor. Soon a man entered the
store with the horn and offered to sell
it. Seeking to detain him while the
ownev, might be galled, Mrs. Root
asked the thief to wait while the horn
was tested. "Mr. Long" sudednly left
the store, leaving the instrument. In
the afternoon, someone assuming the
name of G. E. Rogers, '22E, of the
Rogers orchestra, telephoned another
fraternity house with a request that
a saxaphone that had been borrowed
from Rogers be left at Calkins' drug
store for him. The request was car-
ried out and the confidence man ob-
tained the horn at the store.
"Mr. Long" soon appeared at the
same house and borrowed an instru-
ment, supposedly for use in place of
his which he had broken while play-
ing at a house party. When the saxa-
phone was not returned at the. time
promised, the lender upon inquiry dis-
covered that there had been no party
at the house named.
