Conferences With British

Washington. May 4.—Direction of
America's vast commercial resources
in the common struggle against Ger
many formed the basis of the second
formal conference between American
officials and the British mission held
today in Secretary Lansing's office at
the state department.
Two general subjects were tnkortvjip:
How best and most economically to
marshal the resources for the aid of
the allies and how most certainly to
further restrict all products getting
through to the aid of the enemy.
The highest officials who will have
to deal with these matters, met in
joint session to co-ordinate and dis
cuss the results of the their various
individual conferences. For the
American government there wore
present besides Secretary Lansing.

chief of the customs division of the
treasury department; and tor the Brit
ish, Mr. Balfour, Sir Erie Drummond,
his private secretary, and I»rd Eu
stace Percy, trade expert.
The conferees went, over such prob
lems as trading with the enemy, ex
port restriction, the rationing of Hol
land and Scandinavia, and the means
of arriving at accurate statistics to
show how much In different lines the
allies need and how much tills coun
try can supply.
The mass of detail was found to he
so great, that two committees were
formed to divide, the work between
them and report later. One included
Lord Percfn Dr. Pratt and Wilbur J.
Carr, chief of the consular service, and
the other Sir Eric DinniiHon^ and
Messrs. Woolsey and Halitti d.

Since the economic prosperity of the
United States hau become of'equally
vital concern tc the allies, a marked
disposition has been shown to co-oper
ate more ireely than before to prevent
shortage here. Today, for instance, a
delegation of wool dealers who have
been short, of material because of the
failure in the Australian supply and
the scarcity of ships, were asked by
the British officials to give definite
figures to the department of commerce
in order that a. joint arrangement
might be worked out.
