statement was more presumptuous
than anything rise it served to re-

in the country. There are Smiths
in every community, no matter how
small, and a grand bunch of typical
American citizens they have proven
Originally Smith denoted mechan-
ical craftsmen to general and is not,
as often presumed, a mere contrac-
tion of the word blacksmith. Its
meaning was not restricted to work
ers in any particular craft. Back in

been accused unjustly of planning to
sdfrfnder its fleet snd Atlantic naval
bases "to Germany.
What success he had was not im-
mediately apparent for Secretary of
State Hull declined to comment on
their conference. It was believed,
however, that the ambassador was
told that future Franco-American re-
]r*<r.n<< depended upon the acta of the
Vichy government in carrying out
its collaboration decisions.
. Henry-Hay* said he called on hla
own Initiative to give Hull an expla-
nation of Chief of 8tate Potato's
speech last week to which the aged
marshal spoke of collaboration with
Germany is “a long term labor” and
said the French must turn themselves
"toward -broad perspectives which
can open up a reconciled continent.”
In telling newsmen of hie confer-
ence with Hull, the ambassador as-
serted that there was nothing to the
Petain address to justify an assump-
tion that rtw* intend to surrender
the fleet or take new military steps.
France, by' necessity, he said, had
to do some things which might not
entirely please the tJnited States.
But he added that the leaders of
France were as good Frenchmen as
could be found anywhere and that his
own one desire was to maintain the
long existing friendly relations with
the United States.
