WASHINGTON, April 9. -Several na
onally known pro-league Republican
ipporters of President Harding, rep?
resenting the Western and Middle
Western states and New England, who
ad prepared a memorial to be pre
?nfed to former Premier Viviani, have
bandoncd the plan, because a dis?
agreement as to the wisdom of present

le New York signatures were being
The memorial is described by some
f the originators as being "very
riendly to President Harding" and as
le "first approach to an authoritative
tatement of the pro-league Republican
iewpoint and attitude since the elec
on." It declined to accept the elec
on result as a mandate to enter a
roposed new association of nations,
ut rather as one to enter the league
'ith the Lodge reservations "or such
?odincaiion of them as changed eon
itions may require."
Memorial Made Public
Although not presented to M. Viviani,
le Contents of the memorial was given
ut as an explanation of the position
f the signers. "A new association of,
ations was not the mandate of the
residential election," it said, and ex
lained that the sweeping victory for
[arding was attributable to the expec
ition of voters that he would "fulfill
he promise of the party record and
he United States would enter into the
eague with the Lodge reservations or
uch modifications of them as changed
onditions might require."
"We desire," the letter intended for
I. Viviani reads, "to contribute our

French Sent Note to Washington
Prior to Decision hy
WASHINGTON, April 9.??he French
government, it became known hero to
?lay, sent a note to the United States
some time ago in which it expresse?!
the hope that the controversy over the
Pacific island of Yap might be set?
tled by direct negotiation between the
United States and Japan.
The French note was received before
Secretary Hughes sent his four com?
munications on the Yap question and
the subject of mandates in general to
Great. Britain, France, Italy and Japan,
and is understood to have been in reply
to the communication sent by Secretary
Colby last February to the League of
Nations protesting against the Yap
France was said to have expressed
the hope that the Yap question might
be settled without involving that gov?
ernment as a principal in the discus?
sion. It is not thought likely that the
note will be replied to, in view of Sec?
retary Hughes's decision to treat the
Yap issue merely as a part of the gen?
eral mandate subject.
League Committee Asks
Long Credits to Austria
Ahility to Trade Freely With
Other Countries Emphasized
GENEVA, April 9 ? Among the find?
ings of the finance committee of the
League of Nations is a proposal that
long credits, for at least twenty years,
should be established for Austria. It
recognizes that restoration of Austria's
economic life is largely dependent on
her ability to trade freely with other
countries and emphasizes" the import?
ance of n speedy settlement of the
problem of the division of debts of the
former Austro-Hungarian empire.
It is recommended that an internal
loan be floated to cover the entire ex?
isting budget deficit, thus making It
possible to issue further paper cur?
rency. Budget expenditures ,it believes,
should be reduced to a minimum.
According to the proposal the com?
mittee would control the use of ?sums
realized through loans and credits and
would have the trusteeship for the
management of the Austrian assets on
behalf of the nevj leaders and the
present creditors. It also stipulates
that no external loan could be raised
without the committee's conscsnt.
