REPLY TO NOTE
SAYS BERNSTORFF WAS LA3
vORING UNDER FALSE
ATTITUDE OF ?. S.
Say* Neutrality bf U. S. Is Found,
ed On Conscience And Good
WASHINGTON.. Aprl 21.-Tho
United States replied today to thc
recent memorandum in which German
ambattsador Voh .'Bernstorlf declared,
"If the America;? people desire to ob
serve tmo neutrality they will find
means to fitop lap exclusive exporta
tlou of arms lo ono side, or al least
use this export trade as a means to
uphold legitimate trade with Germany,
especially the foodstuffs trade."
While Secretary Brynn B?3ned the
note, the president himself penned it.
After pointing- cut that the ambassa
dor's language jU susceptible to being
construed a's impugning the good faith
of the United States in the perfor
mance of its duties as a neutral, the
noto takes it for granted that no such,
implication was intended ano suggests
that the ambassador is evidently lao
orlng under certain fa?ne impressions.
Tne not0 declared that such corres
pondence between the United States
mid the allies a# has been published
shows the steadfast refusal of tho
American gorortftnent to acknowledge
the right of any belligerent to altar
the accepted ru!?s of war at sea Inso
far es they alieetrthe rights and inter
esta of neutrals. ..

embargo on arms during'the progress
of the war would bo a direct viola-'
lion of the neutrality ot tho United

of friendship which thu United States
desires to always manifest toward
Germany and its people. It concludes
with tho. declaration that the neutral
