as Recog n is i ng "Weighty
Moral Obligation"
Washington.— An agreement for
funding the Belgian war »lebt to the
United States, with remission of all In
terest on loans preceding the armistic e
and part of the interest on the balance
was reached between the American
and Belgian debt commissions.
The program approved by President
CoolWge was described as recognising
"weighty moral obligation" growing
ont of assurance* given by President
Wilson daring the Versailles peace
conference, and also the right of Bel
gium to particular and special treat
ment by the United States.
The Belgians had insisted that the
loans represented should be considered
a debt by Germany to the United
States because such a proposal "was
accepted by President Wilson at the
peace conference."
Such transfer of responsibility from
Belgium to Germany was refused by
the American commission, but It de
clared that "while no legal obligation«
rest upon the United States In the mat
ter, there does continue a weighty
moral obligation as a result of assur
ances given wMch entirely »llfferentl
atss this sum from all other debts due
the United States from foreign coun
tries."
In consequence, the agreement laid
down a schedule of repayment for the
pre-armlstlce loans, which provide«
that Belgium shall pay $1,000,000 In
1926, and the same amount In 1927.
with increases in each of the next four
years until In 1982. the annual pay
ment becomes $2,900,000. It will con
tinue this figure until 1987, when a
final payment of $2.280,000- will be
due.

$246,000,000 including accrued interest.
