GERMAN DRIVE AGAINST PLAN GAINS HEADWAY Campaign to Repudiate Young Proposal May Be Successful. ts r nil'll Ptr BERLIN', Oct. 18.—The campaign to have Germany repudiate the Young reparations plan appeared to be gaming headway today. Belief was expressed widely that the Na tionalist party would obtain the necessary signatures for a referen dum on the Young plan. While it would be premature at present to forecast the result of the nation-wide registration, which be gan Wednesday, the Nationalist party leaders are confident they will obtain at least 10.000.000 names on the petition. About 4,000,000 names are required. It is believed the Nationalist pre diction is too great but many well informed opponent of the referen dum concede that it is likely 5,000 - 000 or 6,000,000 persons will sign the petition. If the necessary 4,000,- 000 signatures are obtained on the petition, a draft bill frustrating the Young plan, will be submitted to the Reichstag. It is considered certain that the Reichstag would defeat such a measure but, after the defeat, the whole electorate would be called upon to vote on the bill and on the outcome of that referendum would hang the fate of the Young plan which the government accepted after the long and difficult negotia tions of the last eight months in Paris and The Hague.
