Intellectual distinction. His patriot

known throughout France and he has

VERSAILLES, Jan. 17. (By the As
sociated Press.) Paul Deschanel was
elected president of the French re
public today by 734 votes of the S89
members of the national assembly
voting. His majority was the largest
eince the election of Louis Adolphe
Thiers, he ffrst president after the
fall of the empire, who was chosen
The result was certain since the
caucus yesterday, at which Deschanel
was chosen the candidate of the sen
ate and chamber of deputies, com
prising all the various parties.
The feeling among the senators and
the deputies was that the new presi
dent should come into power with a
vote that would give him the neces
sary authority to speak impressively
Sentiment Favor Deachanel.
The general sentiment is that while
M. Deschanel has not won the presi
dency by such outstanding services
as those rendered by Premier Clemen
ceau, he is a man admirably adapted
for the position.
The proceedings, as provided by the
constitution, were formal. However,
the members of parliament and visit
ors joined in a great outburst of ac
clamation when ex-Premier Briand,
who is generally credited with a large
share in the election of M. Deschanel,
declared to a group of friends.
"France and the republic continue.'
The return to Paris was watched
by thousands along the route who
cheered each car, crying "Long live
Deschanel!" and "Long live the re
public!" Public Service I PraUed.
M. Bourgeois made an address of
congratulation to the president-elect,
pledging him the support of France.
He mentioned M. Deschanel's public
services, particularly during the war,
and "during a life of admirable up
rightness consecrated, like your
tather's, to the cult l liberty."
M. Deschanel replied:
""The national assembly, in calling
to the presidency of the republic the
president of the chamber of deputies,
wished to mark its profound attach
ment for those parliamentary institu
tions which in the greatest drama
of history showed again their sup
pleness and their strength. . As a
faithful guardian of the law, 1 will
seek to apply the constitution in
letter and in spirit to solidify and
perfect, in close accord with the na
tion's representatives, these free In
stitutions. Application of Treaty I'rgred.
Our hopes of 1918 were not entire
ly realized and it is necessary today
to conquer the difficulties that press
upon us by strict application of the
treaty of Versailles, by development
of our alliances and friends-hips and
by the union of all the French. That
Incomparable people, whose heroism
and sacrifice saved the world, will
surmount all obstacles upon condition
that they be kept thoroughly conver
sant with affairs and are told the
"1 salute my illustrious predeces
sors, among them M. Poincare, who in
the formidable war represented
France with such dignity and nobility.
I salute also the great Frenchman
who contrioutea so mucn to tne vic
tory by gathering together all the
national energies through a magnifi
cent effort. 1 express the wish- that
the houses of parliament will con
secrate my solemn homage to the im
mortal services he has rendered the
"1 address to the members of the
national assembly an expression of
unspeakable gratitude. I bring to
5"rance and to the republic all my
devotion and all my heart."
Paul Eugene Deschanel, statesman
and author, is known as one of the
most brilliant public speakers of
France. He was brn in Brussels in
1857, during the exile in Belgium of
his father, Emile DeschaiRl, senator
and professor of. the College of Paris.

pointed president of. the parliament

Red Government Loses Excuse for
Fighting and Falling to Sup
ply Xced9'bf People.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 17. Removal
of the blockade on soviet Russia has
knocked one of their "greatest props
frpm under the bolsheviki," Herbert
Hoover said in a statement here to
night. . Speaking from his knowledge
of world conditions, the former di
rector of European relief said the
soviet government had laid every
failure of -socialism .on the blockade,
and used -it' as. a stimulus for raising
armies, on the ground that the Rus
sians ' were fighting . to save them
selves from starvation. With the
blockade removed in large part. Mr.
Hoover said, the "bolshevik tyranny"
will face collapse when it fails to re
, Mr. Hoover. thought Russia had no
commodities, wheat, flax or cotton,
for exports since starvation is acute
in the larger cities and the people
almost in rags.
"I have advocated ever since last
winter," Mr. Hoover said, "that the
blockade on soviet Russia should be
removed on everything except arms
and ammunition, not because it
would do the. bolshevik' tyranny in
Russia any good, but because 1 be
lieve the removal of the blockade will
take from under them one of their
greatest props. For the past year
tney nave laid every failure of so
cialism onto the blockade. They daily
and hourly blamed the allied blockade
for the shortage of food, clothing and
agricultural implements, and the mis
ery that has arisen therefrom, and
they . have succeeded in impressing
this upon an Ignorant people. They
have also used it as a stimulus to
raise armies under - the contention
that they are fighting to save them
selves from starvation.
"These shortages and this suffering
are not due to the blockade, but are due
to the total industrial demoralization
and bankruptcy In production, which
will continue as long as socialism and
the bolshevist rule lasts. If the
blockade is opened the bolshevik gov
eminent must secure the import Of
food and clothing at once, and there
by great suffering will be mitigated.
The greatest blow they can receive
is to- have such an exposure of the
complete foolishness of their indus
trial syKteai to the people. More
over, lifting of the blockade will
allow the real truth of the horror of
bolshevik rule to come out of Russia.
"One thing that needs to be guarded
against in the Unite1 States is that
our frontier and port officers must
redouble theu- vigor against the ex
port to us of bolshevik agitators,
propaganda -and ' money for subsidiz
ing criminals to create revolution."
POLITICAL CHANGE IS DEME1)
Defeat of Clemenccau Is Held of
NEW YORK, Jan. 17. Commenting
on the election of Paul Deschanel as
president of the French republic.
Maurice Caeenave, director-general of
French services in the United States,
"The defeat of M. Clemenceau in
the presidential election has no polit
Jcal significance. There has been no
political change in the balance of
power in the French chamber. The
French president, being without re
sponsibility according to the rules of
parliamentary government, is no
more an active force in political life
than is the king of England.
"The defeaU'of M. Clemenceau ag
nifics that the presidential electoral
college was under the impression that
a man of his forceful character was
less suited to the office of president
than that of prime minister, 'who is
the real head of government in
France, being directly responsible to
both chambers. A. French president
is pot elected on a question, of policy
but on a question of his personal fit
ness for the office.
"M. Deschanel is the son of one of
the founders of the third French -re-Bublic.

high character and great personal;
