fINALLY MADE KNOWN
Terms of Suggestions Are Made Pub
ic in Berlin
SENT TO WASHINGTON
President Harding Assured That Ger
many Will Do Everything in Her
Power to Enable American
Government to Lend
Hand in Dillicult
Berlin, April 26 (By the Associated
Press.)-The German people now
know the new proposals which the
German government submits to the
allied powers through the medium
of the United States. The terms of
the proposals were made public to
(lay, as well as -the accompanying
assurances forwarded to President
Germany, declaring that the peace
and welafre of the world are de
pendent upon a speedy and just
solution of the reparations question,
assures the president that it will
do everything in its power to en
able the American government to
direct the attention of the allied
governments to the matter. As pre
viously outlined, Germany proposes
to pay the allies an indemnity ex
tending over a number of years
which will amount to 200,000,000,000
gold marks, equivalent to $50,000,
000,000, she will cooperate to her
utmost in the reconstruction of de
vastated regions; she will place im
mediately at the disposal of the rep
arations commission 1,000,000,000 gold
marks; she is willing to assume the
allied objections to the United
States and she will issue an inter
national loan, the proceeds of which
will go to the allies.
The German foreign minister, Dr.
Simons, explaining the counter pro
posals in the reichstag, declared the
new offer sent through the United
States must not be taken "on the
basis of an increase over the pre
vious German offer, but only on a
Not From Fear
The new step had been taken by
Germany, the minister explained, not
from fear of new penalties, but ow
ing, entirely to the false views en
tertained abroad regarding the rep
arations question. President Hard
ing was appealed to on the princi
ple of justice, and the American an
swer was awaited at any moment.
The text of the note forwarded by
Germany to the United States for
transmission to the allies concludes
with the following points.
"1. Germany fixes her total liabil
ity at 200,000,000,00 gold marks pay
able in suitable annuities.
"2. Germany will immediately
issue an international loan in which
she will participate, and of which the
value, rate of interest and scale of
redemption shall be subject to agree
ment, the proceeds of the loan to be
put at the disposal of the allies.
"3. Germany will pay, accord
ing to her capacity, in labor, interest
and redemption, the total sum to be
paid which is not covered by the in
ternational loan; she considers in
this connection that it will be possi
ble to pay only 4 per cent. annual in
"4. Germany is disposed to per
mit the allies to share in an im
provement of financial and economic
situation. The redemption' of the re
maining sums will have to take
therefore,. a variable form, depending
upon an improvement. It would be
necessary to draw up a scheme to be
based on 4mi index to be used should
the situation become worse.
"5. In order to clear herself as
quickly as possible of the balance,
Germany is willing to cooperate wvith
all her strength in the reconstruction
of the dlevastatedl regions; she re
gards reconstruction as the most uir
gent basis of reparations and the
most dIirect remedy for miitigating
the. hardships of the war and -the
hatred betwveen peoples. She will re..
construct towns, villages and town
ships dlesignated, or cooperate by
supplying labor and material, or in
any other way agreeable to the allies.
"6. With the same object in view
Germany is disposed to pay in kind
to states which wverc victims of the
wvar, .in addition to re<'onstruction,
* accordmig to a scheme as far as pos
sible purely commercial.
Money in Iland .
"7. In order to give undeniable
proof of .her good faith, Germany is
preparedl immediately to place at the
disposal of the reparations commis
sion 1,000,000,000 marks, comprising
150,000,000 in gold and silver in for
eign exchange and 850,000,000 gold
marks in treasury notes, redleemable
within three months in foreign ex
change or foreign securities.
"8. In the event the United
States and~ the allies so desire, Ger
many Is willing, accordling to the ex
tent of their ability andl capacity, to
assume the allied obligations to the
"9. Germany propose to nego
tiate, with the assistance of exports,
as to the way in which German de
liveries for reparations will be reck..
oned as against the total of Ger
many's debt, particularly respecting
theo way in which the price value
wvill be fixed.
"10. As security for credits ac
cordled her, Germany is willing to
pledlge public revenues and proper
ties in a manner to be dleterminedl be
tween the contracting parties.
"11. With the acceptance of
these proposals, Germany's other
rnenparains and bliga:--ons il.b
annulled and all German mandate
Property in foreign countires will be
"12. Germany declares the pres
sent proposals only capable of
being carried out if the system of
penalties is discontinued forthwith
and she is freed from all unproductive
outlays now imposed on her and that
she be given freedom of trade.
Would Have Commission
"In the event of differences of
opinion arising from an examination
of the proposals, the German gov
ernment recommends that they be
submitted for examination to a com
mission of recognized expe)rts accept
able to all interested governments.
She declares herself realy in ad
vance to accept as binding any de
cision reahed by this commission.
Should any other form of proposals
in the view of the American govern
ment facilitate further negotiation of
the question, the German government
would ask to have its attention drawn
to any points in which alteration is,
in the opinion of the American gov
ernment, desirable. The German
government would also weelcome other
proposals from the American gov
Finally the note says: "The Ger
nian government is too deeply con
vince( of the fact that the peace and
welfare of the world are dependent
Upon a speedy, just and fair solution
of the reparations question not to do
everything within its power in order
to enable the American governiment
to direct the attention of the allied
governments to the matter."
ING AT DURANT'S SCHOOL
The fact that our best and by far
most importan t crop is our crop of
boys and givls was brought home to
me last Thursday while I was visiting
in the Duflant School Community.
I went into this section to see a
number of farmers in regard to an
important piece of Demonstration
Work that I hoped to be able to put
across. But after visiting several
places and finding no on( at home, I
began making inquiries as to where
everybody had gone. I was told that
the people were at the school; and
taking the cue, I went to the school
Upon my arrival at the school, I
was invited in to enjoy seeing and
hearing the youngsters recite their
"Readin', Ritin'. and Rithmetic" and
so on. It was really remarkable to
me to observe how well the little fel
lows could spell, write and read. The
comimnity is to be congratulated up
on the good work that their school is
doing, but above all the teachers are
to be praised-not for being efficient
teachers, th'at is expecte(l--but for
getting all those mothers and fathers
to leave their work at home and spend
the day in school with their children.
Another important feature of the
day was the delightful and bounteous
picnic which was served upon the
grounds. Taken all in all it was a hay
well spent for the people of the com

POTATO STl'ORI E HOUSE
Two business men fron Manning
visited Walterboro, S. C., yesterday
to inspect the sweet potato curing
house and grai elevato I)r, their re'port
of what, they saw is inteiesting andI
points a1 way of relief for Clarendon
Four sweet potato curing houses
were erected during the past year in
different sections of Colleton county.
The houses have a capacity of 8,000
bushels each and three of them were
filled to capacity during the curiong
season. The potatoes we1're sold
through The Southern States Produce
Distributors, Columbia, S. C., un'der
the trade name of Sugarspuds. Eleven
carloads were shipped to vaiilous
parts of the country, some going to
Southern Texas, others to Kansas,
New York and North Carolina. The
prices received were even better than
the growers had expected. The low
est price was $1.30 per (-rate of five
pecks; the highest, $1.75.
The gra in elevator was particular
ly interesting. This was erected at a
cost of $20,000 last year. It is a
substantial concrete and sheet iron
building nearly 75 feet high. IIaving
storage facilities of 1-5,0011 bushels,
the Operators can )uy in any quantity
and ship when it is desirable. The
farmer with one bushel of car corn
inl thle shuck can sell for cash at ally
When cornit is delivered to the eleva
Ior the shuck is quickly removed by
eirchilery and the shucks are salted
ancd baled. There is a ready market
for them for feed. Tihe corn is shell
td ill a power sheller, thoroughly
cleaned and stored away for shipmit.
One carload recently shipped to Char
leston brolght Ge ] per bushel more
than the Western quotation.
It is undoubtedly true that the m:ri
ket for the lPorta Rica Yam is steadily
growing. O1Nly by thorough co-opela'
(ion between the growers and the cur
ing house operators, careful plant ing
,ind grading can the industry be put
on a paying basis. Inl order to de

will undertake to plant Porta Rica

will be built this year. Wri te us at
