Washington, March 28. With the ar
rival here thisweek of former Premier
Rene ' Vivian! Ion ' a" special mission of
courteey Jtromf the French government.
ilhelfirit step will have been taken to
ward establishing Washington as the in
;teriitional peace center of the world."
-Vivianl's coming is to be followed by
a British and a Japanese delegation,
and sooner or later, it is believed in of
ficial ' qaurters here, conclaves to dis
cuss the following problems will give
Washington the aspect of Paris during
the peace conference :
. An international gathering, called to
discuss the subject tff disarmament.
Formal conferences designed to es

tion of nations. - - .
Individual, if not collective, i confer
ences between the United States and the
associated powers on the subject of pay
ing the loans extended by this country
during the war. ;y". ' " :
The VJvianl i mission, while officially
one of extending the respects of the
French government to "the v new admin
istration, is to linger in this country at
least three weeks. Obviously it would
not require that much time formally to
extend respects. It will go into finan
cial, economic and political subjects with
this government:
The British mission, fficjally, is sail
to be principally financial, but its per
sonnel, according to reports here.wlll
be such that political subjects, including
America's bases for participation in' an
association of f nations, may easily and
authoritatively be considered. -
It is the announced purpose of Japan
to -send a delegation from its diet to
establish a basis for better understand
ing between the United States and the
Nipponese. It is-learned here, however,
that the personnel of this delegation also
will be such as to ' permit of ; official
discussion between it and the officials
of , the administration on disarmament
or any other Subject' that may be suggested.-
I :-
In all these transactions between the
administration and the European rep
resentatives, secretaries Hughes and
Hoover ;btd fair to be the outstanding
figures. America's foreign policy is to
be based very largely on economics and
world trade rather than international
politics. Hence Hoover, becaupe of his
own private sources of information de
veloped through his relief organizations.
assumes ;k position of importance in
transacting the nation's foreign policy,
which is not exceeded even by the sec
retary of state. -.
Those who ' saw, . for . : example. ' in
Hughes' announcement on the Russian
trade proposal. ? indicative of Hoover's
influence, recalled that Hoover has more
sources of unprejudiced and in many
cases unpaid information than has the
state department itself. Hoover's relief
workers are all over the world. They
report to him, not on the basis of xo-
litieal expediency, "but on the 'basis of
cold economics. : They have been se
lected by him as experts in their line
of work and many of them are working
for no pecuniary return whatever. : v ,
SOURCES ARE: MAHY'tf';- -i-'t
T-A' an illustration of Hoover's lines
of information it may be recalled that
his was .the first information .that Beta
Kun had sticcessfully effected a Bolshe
vik, revolution, in Hungary. - The state
department had no official advices in
Paris, the war department had none, but
Hoover's food relief wires working from
Budapest to Paris by way : of -Coblens
carried the word. ; "r1
Equally to day Moover'a mukm n
formation' are In prompter and more in
timate touch with Washington than are
the representatives of the state depart
ment in many nations. - It is an Interest
ing situation which gives Hoover al
most commanding power in formulating
w uecisioni oi me administration on
subjects Involving international trade
and economics generally.

Moscow, by Wireless to Berlin,
March 28.I. n! 8.) The deciaion
of the Russian soviet'government to
abolish money as the . medium , of
value arid exchange has been - re
scinded. This announcement was
made today by M. Leahava, head of
the Russian foreign trade board.
, In response to a question as to how
Russia plans to resume trading not only
in this country but with foreign nations,'
M. Leshava said : -;.-' ,f ? y -; i-j .
, "Naturaiiywe cannot uso money just
yet in our internal commerce. However
we Intend to return to the money stand

the money standard and ft is Being so
ordered by the soviet -government. ; Mer
chants will repay to the state la goods
that they get frorrr.the peasants and
other .customers will-pay in goods for
products they, receive. , - , " ' ,
"It is probable that the small business
people will be under the control of the
cooperatives society. ' The foreign trade
board will act as agent of the coopera
tives In foreign countries. ,
'The cooperatives will control the dis
tribution of ait goods bought, both local
and foreign, j The cooperatives will im
mediately give, the peasants some man
ufactured articles . on credit ;from the
government, r f.-"''' 1 -T
"When confidence is established the
peasants will pay in producta" ! l
As to ' government concessions they
must be approved as follows s k
First,, ta the department to which the
concessions belong; second, by the for
eign trade board, and third, by the com
mittee of commissars, . of which Nicolal
Ieiwn is the chairman. ;: r
"The- concessions require foreign -cap
ital to strengthen Our industries.' With
out It our social and economic develop
ment would be Interfered with. ; -?
The announcement that- the Russian
soviet government will adopt the mone
tary system of the "capitalistic govern
ments" does svay with one of the most

the establishment of the soviet federal
government It was stated that the old
monetary system would be done away

be used, as the medium ef exchange and
'barter. It was declared that the finan
cial systems - of the "bourgoiae" coun
tries was one of the chief causes of suf
fering of the working class. t
' However, while 'money was ordered
abolished the government continued to
print paper roubles. They were not used
in the distribution of such food and
clothing and fuel as the government ra
tioned. These suppltes were doled out
upon a system of cards, the : status of

weatherman down., in Washington is the
meanest thing ever. He predicted that
the customary .Easter fashion parades
would be spoiled by bad weather.
"Everywhere east of the Mississippi
river there were promises of unsettled
Weather and showers of Sunday," is
what he said. What happened was that
much of the usual spring flne-y which
has always marked Atlantic City's great
Easter fashion parade was left at home
by the thousands upon ' thousands of
visitors who came. here for the celebration.-

It was a case of a beautiful day going
to waste. Here everybody was all ready
to blossom out in new hats and coats
and suits and dresses -and stockings and
shoes and everything, and that mean
old thing down in Washington was so
Insistent about it that it looked like
flirting with sure destruction to bring
tne -prettier- along. ;
The whole result waa that one of th
largest Easter parades ever held on the
famous board walk In this resort was
limited, in the main, to tailored suits
and maybe there wasn't a display of that
portion of milady's' wardrobe. They
were reany wonderrul and were a de
light to the feminine eye, but mere man

and diaphanous before it spells spring

Where all -the ' men. women, young
men and young women, girls and' boys

is something that will never - be an

er.ding streams. And If the costumes of
some on the board walk are to be be
lieved many came down by motorcycle
also. : Possibly one or two arrived by
airplane, but. however that may be, the
fact remains that it was some crowd.
The unexpected happened in the hotels,

phrase it differently. It didn't happen

announcea at the tune thai this business
of "lifting the lid" was generally
against his principles, but that in this
case, it being a worthy object, he was
in favor or it, and Issued pne last ap
peal: The "city of Portland has never
failed In anything which it has under
taken to do. Come on, now everyone
do his bit."
The "Have a Heart" band then struck
up "The Star-Spangled Banner" and the
American flag, was raised above , the
Community Chest.
The $000 wcars in the task of col
lecting; the funln are divided into five
distinct and independent corps of work
ers. The first division is the seml-mil-ltary
organization under the immediate
direction of Mayor- Baker, which in
cludes two lieutenant -generals, 20 col
onels. 200 captains and 2000 workers W
cover the business districts. The indus
trial and institutional districts will be
covered with -a second division. The third
division will reach the large companies,
whose main offices are outside of the
city. The fourth section will be the fly

prominent business men who will go
after the heaviest contributors. The
fifth division will no 1 1 lot the residence

of the Portland Service league.

squadron" yesterday, in amounts suffi
