so as to achieve his aim of international prosperity But how far he will go remains to be seen The administration and congress regard debts as obligations as def inite as the proposed consultative agreements by the United States to satisfy European demands for se curity Yet since the debts question the inter thc presi dent in the face of expressed con gressional objections seems bent on meeting the challenge in some way and answer bargain with bargain if necessary The French cabinet voted yester day against paying its defaulted December payment without assur ance that the forthcoming June in

tariff truce Not Prevent Work Mr MacDonald said the truce would not prevent continuation of work which Britain now had begun or was developing in accordance with announcements already made n the house
