Former Premier of France
Pierre Laval it> reported to
have sent Edouard Herriot to an
insane asylmn in an attempt to
create the impression that the
former French premier was in-
According to an intimate
friend of Herriot's, Laval tried
to use Herriot to save the Vichy
government, hut failed to inti-
midate the French politician.
Little else is known of the
fate of Herriot since — in 1942
he was reported arrested by
the German gestapo in a round-
up of French leaders.
This report ended a brilliant
political career that really had
come to a climax just 10 years
before—in 1932—when a French
cabinet sat in all-night session
to decide the fate of Herriot.
In the morning, Herriot was
no longer premier of France.
Later, when Herriot came to
the United States, he smiled and
said he had "lost his job" be-
cause of the United States. The
all-night session had turned
against Herriot when he conten-
ded that France should pay her
war debt to the United States.
In this country, Herriot was
accorded the same quality of de-
votion he had attracted during
his 18 consecutive years as may-
or of Lyons.
His natural friendliness, and
simplicity—and lack of pretense
—endeared him to all who met
him. A massive, broad-shoulder-
ed man, with a bullet head,
square jaw—Herriot's appearan-
ce is no index of the spirit dwell-
ing in the hulking body.
Before he was taken prison-
er, Herriot would travel hur-
riedly through France — a doz-
en books with him at all times
—his ponderous body almost
grotesque beneath an 1880 hair-
cut. Yet, if the build of this man
shows none of his poet's mind,
his complete disregard for van-
While other French politicans
were pompous, and impeccably
groomed, Herriot would attend
conferences in a suit bought by
| his mother-in-law.
Herriot himself never had the
time—nor the inclinaiton — to
go to his tailor for a fitting. His
suits were always fitted to a
tailor's assistant who resembled
Herriot in build.
j While he discussed some sub-
ject of politics, economics, art,
lor literature—cigarette ashes of-
ten dropped onto rich Louis 15th
But few thought of the care-
less cigarette—or the clumsy
clothes. They listened — almost
mesmerized—to the man him-
self. In his life Herriot has done
many things—teach, write, and
become a political leader.
I His life-motto was not "create
an impression," but the more
As far back as 1934, Herriot
warned that the United States,
| Soviet Russia, and Japan were
dangerously on the brink of war.
In Herriot's words:
"Japan is studying American
policy and above all—American
Ten years before that, Her-
riot had issued another warn-
ing, when he urged the world to
follow up the work begun by
Herriot said then:
"Since the great American
died without having even real-
ized the great dream born of
of Washington—it is
his long meditations
for Franc.e | rising.-
by the tomb ( mans
to take up the moral heritage left ! sons had
s by hint, and breathe life into it."
Born at Troves, France, on
July .r)th. 1872, Herriot went to
I school in Paris, taught at Nan-
tes and Lyons, and in 1904—just
I 40 years ago—began his politi-
■ ea) life as municipal councillor
I of Lyons.
Later, when Herriot became
i mayor, the people of Lyons said
j they would elect and elect their
mayor until he became premier.
On May 11th, 1924—their pop-
i ular mayor—Big Ed as they call-
j ed him—became premier of
Then. Herriot said:
"Being premier is like riding

consists in being able to fall out

Apparently. Herriot had great
need for that sense of humor,
The Allies have opened a
brand new front against Ger-
many—inside Germany itself.
General Eisenhower has issu-
ed a call-to-arms to the foreign-
ers toiling within the Reich. Ev-
en now, the slave society Hit-
ler created may be stirring, mak-
ing plans to strike down its mas-
ter. The Trojan horse technique
—which Hitler used to help con-
quer most of Europe—is being
turned against him. Thus, a

time that the Reich's foreign
slaves are organized for resis-

} essary spark for an explosion.
The Germans are well aware
of their danger. Nazi broadcasts
have spoken of a "foreign parti-
san band roaming through the
Reich." The Germans are tak-
ing the necessary steps to pro-
tect themselves. Only last week,
the Brazzaville radio said:
". . . the Hitlerian commis-
sioner for foreign affairs has
published a circular on the sub-
ject of the new principles for the
distribution of foreigners over
German territory to prevent
mass revolts and sabotage."
The broadcast added:
"According to the circular,
concentration and labor camps
will be multiplied. This meas-
ure is motivated by the danger
of concentrating too large a
number of hostile elements in a
The Germans also are mixing
the nationalities in each labor
camp because, as the Brazzaville
report says, "experience in the
last few months has shown that
mass revolts and the most dan-
gerous plots are the results of
the union of foreigners of the
The Germans have taken oth-
er measures. A foreign diplomat
in Madrid recently said Hein-
rich Himmler had arrested 50,-

Hitler once said that every
German would be taught to shoot
a rifle in defense of the father-

' the Germans formed a city
guard and a country guard to
serve as auxiliary police. Now
the Nazis are oganizing what
they call "war auxiliary groups"
consisting of civilian males from

tics and shooting.

ian has little time for extra-cur-
