GERMAN WAR MINISTER
Throws Down Challenge to Allies and
Says Let Them Occupy Country
If They Like
MAKES CHARGE OF DECEIT
Declares British and French Govern
ments are Doing Everything in
Their Power to Crush Germany
Berlin, Dec. 7.-(By the Associated
Press.)-Gustav Noske, minister of
defense, is determined not to sign the
peace protocol handed Germany by the
Fntente, and is resolved to recommend
that the government adopt his attitude
come what may, according to an inter
view with Noske printed today.
"I can not speak for the whole gov
ernment because it has not yet come
to a decision," said Noske "but I shall
recommend a refusal to sign the peace
Says Limit has Come
"The limit has long been reached.
Let the Allies occupy the country if
they like. The peace now presented 'o
us is not peace but a prolongation of
the war. -
"Were such a treaty accepted the
German nation would rise up and
avenge itself upon the men who signed
it, and it would be right. Great Brit
ain and France are deliberately plan
ning the destruction of Germany. All
the confidence I ever had in the
pledges of the Allies is gone forever.
"Deceit and Trickery."
"By deceit and trickery the British
and French governments are working
up opinion in their countries to crip
ple Germany still further beyond the
crushing effect of the first treaty. We
have yielded too often and now must
resist. Let the Allies do what they
Asked whether he would resign if
the remainder of the government de
cided to accept the Allied terms. Noske
replied that he could not say what he
would do a week hence, but that his
present position had been deliberately
adopted and was unalterable.

The correspondent says that, ?I
though Noske carefully emphasizeu
that he was only defining his own
position his words agreed with the

intentions ascribed. the dther e

The two straws which Noske rep
resents as having broken theoback if
German endurance, says thecorrespoi,
dent, are the demand for dock and har
bor material and the protocol ens.

tion of the peace treaty.
The correspondent says that during
his talk with Noske he suggested -that
if the Germans had not sunk the war
ships in the Scapa Flow, the demand
of the Allies for tugs and docks would
not have been made: To this he says
Invented Some Pretext.
"Oh, yes, they would. The British
would have invented some pretext.
Great Britain is out to cripple Ger
many and demands our -last dredges

Noske, repudiated the German gov
ernment's responsibility for the sink
ing of the warships in Scapa Flow and
accused the British government of
