On the whole, he is a steady old man and I do not think he has the temperament to do rash things. His election is an indication-of the renewed spirit in Germany." Disinclination to say much regarding the German elec- tions was displayed in the official world, but one officially ventured opinion was that the choice of von Hindenburg as president was not expected seriously to affect German for- eign relations, except possibly to make Germany's former enemies less trustful to her. Serious international complica- tions, it was said, were not expected to arise. The election result Is considered unfortunate, but not disastrous, so far as the reparation and future financial rela- tions are concerned, it was stated at the treasury. NO BAD RESULTS IN BERLIN.

Colonel Mitchell Asserted that he had fount! It impossible to anything to develop air force through tiic war and na'vy departments nnd that ho would continue to take- the fight to congress and the people. He paid tribute to General Patrick, asserting the air service' chief 'had hccn handicapped in his efforts. General Patrick, in replying, salrl differences of opinion with Colonel Mitchell had Icon the most honest differences and he added that Colonel Mitchell "knows more than any other man in this country t or in any country" in his line.
