MY DEAR TIME'S WASTE

across his breast. The crowd filed past, sorrowful and respectful. As one couple was passing I heard the woman say to her husband, after looking for a long time at the President:
`It is indeed he!'
After the election of 1932 Herriot, who had come to power, made an attempt at the Lausanne Conference to adjust the question of reparation which was then poisoning France's relations both with Germany and with England. I knew Edouard Herriot only slightly but I had a high regard for his culture and honesty. One morning Jean Giraudoux, who was an attache in his Cabinet, telephoned me:
`Would you like to come to Lausanne?' he asked. `The Chief has authorized me to take you there.'
I accepted and had no cause to regret it, for I saw at very close range how an international conference functions. It was essentially a conflict of prestige between irascible experts whom uninformed but well-intentioned statesmen tried to placate. Herriot, generous and eloquent, rising above clouds of figures, would tell humorous anecdotes about Louis Philippe or discuss music with the Germans. The English delegation, knowing that he had written a Beethoven, had prepared themselves brilliantly on this subject, but he held forth on the poetry of jazz and took them by surprise. Ramsay MacDonald was there, accompanied by his daughter Ishbel, the Runcimans and the unfortunate Ralph Wigram who had been stricken by infantile paralysis but continued his work with inspiring abnegation. Every evening Paganon, Minister of the Interior and member of the French Delegation, would receive the journalists:

If you wish to give the public an exact idea of the situation say that, although we cannot indicate any actual change, the climate, the atmosphere (am I right, Monsieur Maurois?) is better ... No! ... Say: imperceptibly better. . . . '
Positive result: France gave up the reparations without any settlement of the question of the American debts. The delegates took a last dip in Lake Geneva. Giraudoux who, like his hero Jerome Bardini, had disappeared for almost the whole conference, reappeared on the last day:
