TO BE 'RETAINED
Shipping Board Will Take Vessols
Over. Eight Remain Here. 4
Washington, Sept 27.--@Ight Ger
man liners, including the former Ham
burg-American steamer Imperator,
second largest ship in the world, al
lotted to the United States by the in
ter-allied shipping commission after
the signing of the armistice and used
to bring home American troops, are
to be retained by the United States.
Plans t( Place thein pi passenger and
freigit ervice are being prepared by
the si ipp.ing board. Thle Inperator
had been allocated by the allied naval
commission at Paris to Great Britain
and the British minister of shipping
expected that the ship would be de
livered to him today at 'Iloboken for
use by the Cunard line In service be
tween New York and England. The
shipping board announced today, how
ever, that it had taken the liner over
from the twar department and ordered
a survey to determine repairs neces
sary for use as liner.
J. H. Rossetter, director of the. di
vision of operations of the board, is
sued tonight the following statement:
"It is understood -by the United
States shipping board that the Impera
tor, Kadsenin Augusta Victoria and six
other ex-German ships, now in New
York, were allocated to the United
States under the terms of -peace and
the board therefore assigned these
vessels to the iwar department for the
repatriation of .troops. This service
being now performed, the chairman of
the board requested the war depart
nient to deliver the ships to the United
States shippitig board. Accordingly
the war department this morning re
delivered the Imperator at Now York
to the shipping board representatives.
While no official of the board would
stand sponsor for the statement, It
was understood that the action of the
board in retaining the ships was a di
rect result of a decision by the su
preme economic council at Brussels to
allocate to the allies 12 oil tank steam
ers in Geiman ports which the Stand
ard Oil Company of New Jersey con
tends are its property. The ships twere
operated under the German flag, but
the company claimed they 'belonged to
Its German subsidiary. Under-Secre
tary of State Polk, head of the Amer
ican peace delegation at Paris, has
sought to have the 12 oil shlis allo
cated 'for the 'transportation of oil
from teh United States to Germany.

powers at Paris agreed, but the su
preme economic council, on which the
United States is not now represented,
ordered Germany to turn the vessels
over to the allies.
In announcing that the shipping
board would retain the eight German
liners, iMr. Roosetter said their alloca
tion to the United States 'was 'perma
nent. When the ships were delivered
by the Germans in Englqnd, the ship
ping board, it was explained, turned
them over to the war department for
use as transp6rts and has now taken
these 'back 'for commercial employ
It was said at the war department
today that since the ships had been
assigned to it by the shipping board
the department's only course was to
return them when no longer needed as
transports. At the state department
it was said that he matter had not
been brought formally to the atten
tion of officials there and no state
ment was forthcoming.
Great Britain has contended that the
allocation of the eight liners by the
interallied commission <was only tem
porary and that when the need for the
ships as troops transports has passed,
they were to revert to the allied 'pool
or permanent allocation among the
ailled and associated nations.
Officials of the shipping board would
not say upon what authority they iwere
acting. It was expected, however, that
the whole question would be brought
to the attention of President Wilson
upon his return to Washington, either
by the board or by Viscount Grey, t4e
new 'British ambassador, who arrived
today to take up his duties.
'Meantime the Cunard .line has been
advised by the British minister of
shipping to cancel its plans to operate
the Imperator under the Cunard flag
next month. The company had adver
tised extensively that the Imperator
would be operated by it in the Now
