On February 6, the arbitration treaty between France and the U. S. expires. Last week Secretary of State Kellogg gave French Ambassador Claudel the first draft of a new treaty to send home on approval. It was proposed that the U. S. and France agree:

4) To keep domestic politics out of Franco-American relations.
