Despite "officially permitted;' explana

Throughout discussions of tho departure
of Calllaux from France at such a crisis
In his country's history are repeatedly
heard mention of intimations which came
out at tho trial of tho wlfa of the ex

men of Germany havo termed Calllaux as
"Germany's best friend In France."
Less than ten days ago the appearance
of Calllaux with his wife on the streets
of Paris brought forth demonstrations
from tho populace In which cries of "Ger
man spy" were heard, During his wife's
trial It was frequently hinted that Call
laux failed to exhibit his customary firm
