BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER

Certain obstinate doctrinaires maintained that these reforms would endanger the Republic. Actually these reforms alone could have saved it, as events clearly proved. President Doumergue, instead of acting, made speeches over the radio and let the opportune moment slip by. His popularity, which had been tremendous, declined. In order to lighten ship he dismissed Cheron, his Minister of justice, whom one section of public opinion blamed for not having arrested the murderers of Prince. This ridiculous-looking fat man one day made a profound remark to Henry de Jouvenel who repeated it to me:
`You think me ridiculous, Monsieur?' Cheron said. `I want to be ridiculous, Monsieur. And do you know why? It's because in this jealous country being ridiculous is the only form of notoriety that does not kill a politician.'
It was Marshal Main who, with the brusqueness of a timid man, put an end to Cheron. One day at a Cabinet meeting the Marshal said:
`We are carrying too much dead wood around with us.'
`To whom do you refer?' Cheron asked.
`To you, Monsieur,' the Marshal said.
Cheron collapsed.
Doumergue's Minister of Foreign Affairs was Louis Barthou, a native of Warn, who wore a goatee and eyeglasses and was prodigiously pleased with himself. He belonged to Poincare's generation; both had been ministers at thirty, and at that time had been called `the two babies'. A collector of autographs, he had amassed a collection which after his death was sold for seven million francs. I loved to look at his beautiful editions of Hugo, Rimbaud and Verlaine. Pleased by my enthusiasm, he treated me as a young protege until the day when Marshal Lyautey inadvertently turned him against me. After dinner Lyautey had taken me by the arm and had said, jokingly:
`Look here, Barthou! This is the man who invented me.'
I protested, but Barthou, who had himself written a book about Lyautey before I had, never forgave me for this incident. He was a vain man but I respected him all the same because his vanity seemed to me more than balanced by his sincere patriotism. He had just completed a grand tour of Europe to strengthen our alliances when King Alexander I of Yugoslavia came to Marseille. Barthou went there to greet him and both were assassinated. I remember the feeling of disintegration at that
