Begins to Take Form GREEN DECIDES TO OPPOSE BILL SENATE PASSED House Pushes on Toward Vote on Reforesting Measure WASHINGTON March 29 The house was told today tha William Green president of th American Federation of Labor hai changed his mind and was nov opposed to Presidents Roosevelt forest conservation measure how at the conclusion that his only hope of a business revival in the United States lay in revival of world trade Europe in Error Of course it may fairly be as sumed that he does consider Amer icas advantage best served by prosperous world conditions but tha Europen theory that he had no faith in the idea of an independently fairly thriving and happy United States regardless of other coun tries is now revealed as quite er roneous This notion perhaps was arrived at from such expressions by Amer ican statesmen as Senator Cordell just after his selection for the state portfolio to the effect that America henceforth must play its full part in world commercial re habilitation from whichalone busi ness recovery hvsatlsfilctory meas Had ilfo Intention Seoretary Hull probably had no intention of begging other nations for heavens sake and upon any terms to join Americans in a program designed to save them from ruin It is plain however that such substantially was the inter pretation they placed upon his words for they promptly assumed the attitude that they might be will ing to consider a plan of the sort suggested provided the United States would make sufficient con cessions British Chancellor of the Exche quer Chamberlain indeed will be recalled as having intimated in a lormal speech that England would scarcely be prepared to acquiesce in debt cancellation Englands debt to America without a quid pro quo of one kind or another This overseas complacency natur ally must have been sorely jolted by the new presidents casual remark in the course of his inaugural ad dress that I shall spare no effort to restore world trade but the emergency at home cannot wait on that accomplishment More Rational Now His subsequent utter obliviouness of international questions while dealing with the bank crisis taking up farm and unemployment relief and even disposing of the wetand dry issue undoubtedly rattled t still farther Now opening international corri mercial negotiations after a consid erable lapse Secretary Hull finds the old world quite ready to tall business very rationally It is unlikely to be sure that Jnany Americans are optimistic over prospects of further war debt col lections but there certainly will be no more hints at the necessity foi American concessions to the debtor powers for file privilege of cancell ing them AUNT HET By Robert Quillen i Nature arranges it purty good Mighty few folk get prosperous enough to have
