PARIS, Aug. 8—Herbert C. Hoover is sick of his job.
Putting it bluntly but accurately, that is the dominating reason for ihe announced retirement to private life of the man who has rome to be looked upon as the most successful individual feeder of the world’s nations and who has saved many millions in all parts of tile globe from sure starvation.
Mr. Hoover has just passed up an OE offer to become the world’s coal controller, with virtually dictatorial powers. It has no lure for him, for he has been "through the mill’1— the food mill and he says that’s enough for a lifetime.
. "The time has come for Europe to run its own affairs,”—that sums up Mr. Hoover’s opinion, at which he has arrived after two years of infinitely patient labors against gigantic odds. He has come to believe that to try to swim against certain currents which persist in sweeping away patient, unselfish efforts, is as useless as it is unwise.
Briefly, Mr. Hoover is thoroughly "fed up” on the present diplomatic situation, particularly the inability of the men around the green table to come to a definite understanding to la* at least the basis for an international "get together” on the tremendous economic issues I of the day.
There is talk that he was in a mood to consider the coal control! ing job, though for months bitterly dissatisfied with the way the diplo matic situation was being handled. 8- but Rumania’s action in resuming path of force In the midst of
