BUSY ON WAR PLANS
British Commission Gets In Uninter

ences. Balfour Sends In Report.
.Washington, April 27.-The British
war commission today entered upon
its first day of uninterrupted work
with a wide series of conferences
touching every phase of .American
participation in the war. 1i'xperts in
all lines set out in earnest on the va
rious paths prescribed by Foreignk
Secretary Balfour as a result of his
preliminary conferences with Ameri
can ollicials to learn how most effec
tively the British commission could
be oi service.
Mr. Halfour himself passed a stren
uous day. The morning he devoted to
writing his first report to Eagland,
Speaking enthusiastically of his warm
reception here and of the eagerness
of the American government, to coop
erate in every way to defeat the coil
mon enemy. The report, which it IS
stated, will be made public later in
line with 'Ir. Balfour's desire to take
not Only the two governments, but the
two peoples fully into his confidence,
was said to contain "very Joyous
news for the British people."
Attorney General Gregory called on
Mr. Balfour in the afternoon and is
understood to have discussed with him
the nany kinds of legislation needed
to protect public safety in war' time
and to prevent aid and comfort reach
ing the enemy.
M. Viviani, head of the Frenclh comii
mission, also called on (Mr. Balfour to
more closely coordinate the work of
the two commissions. Mi. Viviani told
Mr. 'lalfour of the French commxis
sion's decision to stay somewhat long
er than originally planned and to
change the purpose of their visit
largely from mere ceremonial to one
of service and advice.
Charles M. Schwab, president of flte
Bethllehem Steel Company, paid his re
spects to Mr. Balfour, after a visit to
the French commission. -ills visit, to
gether with the trip to .New York to
day of Lord Cunliffe, governor of the
lBank of England, gave rise to much
discussion about the changed status
of this country from a neutral nation
makig loans and sales through private
individuals o na profit basis, to an
Allied nation making loans direct
through the government.
