Marshall declared that the re- nulls ol the conference at Petro- polls, Brazil, in which the treaty was drafted and signed "demon- strated, I think beyond doubt, that where nations are sincerely desir- ous of promoting the peace and wen-being of the world it can be done." He added that "It can be done without frustrating delays and without much of the confusing and disturbing propaganda that has' at- tended our efforts of the part two The who earlier this year eight futile weeks In Moscow trying to negotiate agree- ments on the future of Germany with F.uiiln, Britain and France, returned Wednesday from the Pet- meeting where the IB Amer- ican govenimcnta present drew up the new security treaty In three 'Sunlight1 Vandenberg, chairman of the Semite foreign relations committee, told his radio listeners would present the .pact to, for ratification with "every con- fidence that it will deserve prompt and enthusiastic- approval of traditionally American ideals."

They were tokens wrapped in strands of hair from the tresses of lasses who had discovered that a streetcar token, properly ar- ranged, can be used, to play two music numbers on a Juke box. The hair-lined token fits into the dime slot. Gates advertised his sale with a huge sign In the front window of the shop. But persons who came In to inquire were inclined to ask ques- tions. They wonted to know if there was a "catch" to the propo- sition. The situation changed complete- ly Thursday after a story appeared in a Minneapolis paper on the sale. A steady stream of token purchasers moved through the shop. -By noon the slim was down, and the tokens had disappeared. Dozens of brown envelopes, each containing 14 tokens, were handed over to customers in exchange for SI. The customers asked no ques- meat.
