period of Ave years.
The French prepared Immediate

settlement at any time within the
period.
Under the proposed arrangement
France would pay $40,000,000 a
year for the next five years and
would resume negotiations for full
settlement during that time when
conditions warranted. The pay
ments would be considered as full
interest on the total debt, which is
$4,200,000,000.-
The French Finance Minister did
not sign an Iron bound agreement.

(Aam-Utrd Prm Leased Win.)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 1. Ex
tending the American govern
ments welcome to the assembled
delegates. Secretary Kellogg de
clared in an addresses al the
opening session today of the Inter-parliamentary
union that the
presence In the American capital
of so many representatives of
self-govornnienting nations shows
that In this remarkable age the
attention of the world Is centered
upon the problems of self-government.
"Nothing can be more stimulat
ing to the announcement of liber
al ideals or will contribute more
certainly to peace," Mr. Kellogg
said, "than for members of var
ious parliaments and legislatives
to meet as you are doing to ex-
change views on your respective
problems.
The secretary reminded the del
egates that they represented
countries with varying economic
condition, race wnn wmeiy uu
ferent political histories and tra
ditions. .
"Universal peace has been the
dream of statesmen for ages," he
said, "but no one has found a
specific. A cure must come from
the hearts and understanding of
the people. They must be thought
to think In terms of peace; they
must realise that there are bet
ter means of adjusting interna
tional disputes than the arbltrat
ment of war.'
Mr. Kellogg said forces were
at work for the disintegration of
orderly representative govern
ment and for the establishment of
class rule." which may give us
serious thought." He added:
"I am not an alarmist and I
have absolute confidence in the
intelligence and patriotism of all

who have reared and maintained

BOSTON. Oct. 1. Alfred Geier

at a hearing before the board of

He said that the crash between

bunk and at the foot of the ladder
leading Into the conning tower

helping another man up. He fol

Lieutenant Commander R. K.

aeronautics, urged creation of
separate air corps In the navy,
and recommended establishing an
advance school for training naval
air officers.
About 60 or 70 per cent of na
val filers he said, favor a sepa
rate air corpa, but the desire for
an independent air aervlre "haa
faded away." entirely. Much dis
satisfaction exists, he' continued
over the present naval air organi
sation because pilots want con
trol of the aviation affairs placed
In the hands of flying men.
"The naval air reserve force,
leads' a hand 1n mouth existence,
and la short of personnel and
equipment,' he testified.
Although there la a growing
tendency in ' favor of aviation
among high naval offlcera, con

to sea that It does not "over-atep
