Paris, Nov. 14.-Germany must
find some way of getting 800,000,
000,000 marks worth of grain to
feed her people dlurin gthe next
year, the reparations commission
learned in its investigation in Ber
As this amount is aibout double
the present total of praper money
in circulation in Germany, purchase
of the grain is (deemed impossible,
except through speedy financial
rehabilitation of the country or
food credlits from abroadl. It seems
to b~e generally taken for granted
that both the credlits andl the food
wvouldl have to come from America.
The 800,000,000,000 marks repre
sents G;er~many's import require
nmentsg for the next twelve months
of 2,000O,000 tons of grain, the mini
nmum amount thought necessary to
prevent starvation. Any attempt to
buy this cereal in a foreign market
wouldl, in the opinion of experts,
cause a complete colaipse of the
mark, with a serious reaetion in
the exchange o fthe other Euro..
