good reason to believe that the tier
man guarantees are likely to take the
form of an order to submarine com-1

This, according to the Herman vlew-

assurances which it hau beeti seeking.

I might Include any steps Which the
I United States might take to promote

pointed out that anything short of a

It was acknowledged here to-dav that
these sentences in the President's last I
note had a great deal to do with Hi r- !
many'l final decision to make concessions !
to the 1'nited States.
Many here have thought that tin-
president s suggestion that tin- Govern
ment might act as a common friend tn-
dicated a possible intention on hla part
to attempt to bring Hreat Britain and
Hermany to an understanding through
which Germany Would Rive up her un-
lawful submarine attacks upon British '
I commerce and Hreat Britain would do ,
1 away with the all. ged unlawful feature.-
i of its bhe kade of Hermany.
i Hermany hail trie,) on one nr two oc-
asioie to get the President to move In
I this direction, but up to this time he
j has declined to go further than to trans-
j mil to Kngland any proposal which tier

President has been actuated ohletly hy i
a desire to keep the submarine and Ih.
Written blockade i.s-ues separate, fear
ing that if he allowed theill to heroine'

would be greatly weakened. Therefore,
