    • Abstract:
      The article presents political developments around the world. The French Chamber of Deputies by 321 votes to 264 and the Senate by 286 to 17 have in effect suspended the Constitution of the French Republic and suppressed democracy in France until the end of next November. The fact that Edouard Daladier, the French politician, has asked for and obtained dictatorial powers certainly does not mean that he will adopt a firm policy toward Germany and Italy. The nomination of William O. Douglas to fill the vacancy created on the Supreme Court by the retirement of Louis D. Brandeis can hardly fail of confirmation by the U.S. Senate and will meet with much approval and little criticism.
