that he had "no doubt" distinguished
, Americans would be willing to serve on

rell be kept free from any responsibility
Co foreign officials or any duty to obey
political Instructions. Once advantage
had been taken of the opportunities thus
Uforded, h said, "the avenue of Ameri
can helpfulness cannot fall to open hope
fully. . "
Referring to suggestions- that the
United States assume the role of arbiter
tn the reparations - dispute, Mr.
Hughest said a sufficient -answer to that
as the fact "that we nave not been ask

acts of cancellation.' This attempt was
resisted la a determined manner under
the former administration and under the
"The matter Is plain enough from our
standpoint. The capacity ot Germany to
say is not at all affected by any indebt

not tnoaease her capacity. For example.
If France had been able to finance her
trom us, that is, by taxation and Intern
al tnans, tha problem of what Germany
tould pay would be exactly " the same.
Moreover, so far as the debtors to the
United State are concerned, they have
unsettled credit balances, and their , con
