sane views have been exlre:-se din
timies by notable m11en1 Since tieni. The
view that these men take is not that the
dlebts shoulid be cancelled from cIar
itable reasons, but because in tilie long
rn the I'nit4edt States would profit
-imore iy their eaniellation tian it
Would by ain insistani(e on their pay

Mal conditions in interliational finane
os than thereo ld be in rolon1 gi ng
the C--resent agoly of dep'1ressonl bV in
sisting on colleCting the debts owed
It is safe to say that there are Ino)
other things contributing so nuch now
to world depression as the debts hang
ing over tihe IEturopeanl countries, tihe,
interest charges they have to meet an(d
the heavy ex'penditures they are still
making for armaments. In a discus
sion of cancellation of debts woIl(l
naturally come the (luestion of ds
armament of European countries.
Should the weight of debt be removed
and the cost of military establish
mlents wiped out, there is no question
but that trade conditions would re
turn to such a volume that t his
.oiuntry ,would profit enormou sly.
No less an authoritv than The Sat
uIrday IEvening Post has recently ex
liressed tliese views. Like the nain
(Ilestion itself, its- views are well
worth considering and we -print them
I part as follows:
The two most perilous International
1 eibarrassments of the I)resent day
are the grotesque size of the war debts
and indlemnities, and the grotesque
tc(ost of the military and naval estabi
c ishments which nations once rich but
now~ impioverished are comipelled by
'thg~ir fears or byv their governments to
aiintain. If all .armaments, ,war
debts and indieminities could le sim
-ultaneously redtuced -by -initernational
agr eement credit wouldh 110 douubt re
vive, t radeI would improve, and hothI
the lnited States and Great Birihain
might gain far more in real wealth
than they wvould lose by paper sacri
lices. But a dhownward revision of
legal debts and legal ind9mnlties can
not he just ified if the remiissions madec
by onfe country to another are to lie
il.ed by that other coulntry for thle
mlainltenance or extension .of amrma
meals. If wiping the slate wvould wipe
out the pirobabhility of fuiture wars it
would be (heal) at the price. Yet, even
though at conceluision cannilot lbe reached
at present, there is everything to he
said for puitih is llcussion. it is a
healthy sign t hat thme press is t ecmning
wvith conltroversi~il Ifeters on the sub
jeet of war debts and indemlnities.
