VIEWS ON THE TREATY.
PARIS, May 8
On the whole the French view the Treat;- with satisfaction, though the Sociali-.'.s? are likely to think the terms nob mild .enough and the extreme Right that they aro not severe enough. All are agriHjd that the Treaty will require
careful watching to see that itß demands are complied with. The French take much the same view of Herr Rant-' zau's ebullition as do the British. M. Clemenceau, interviewed, said: "I think it is a good peace. France has derived immense benefits from her association with Britain and America. The peace is more satisfactory because it means "an alliance with the two most powerful nations in the world."
A British authoritative statement expresses great satisfaction with the Treaty, which is the sternest in modern history, yet contains nothing vindictive. It is more than a peace, it is the first step towards a world constitution.
