No Public or Secret En? tanglement Planned, British Chief Says Trust U. S. to See It Through Thanks Americans, Praise? JofFre and Revels in Lighted Streets Washington. April 2.V Complet? un? derstanding of America's attitude in the war unreserved cooperation in tha fight of democracy against the German military menace without entangling political alliances was expressed by Foreign Minister Balfour, head of the. British War < o ?.mission, in a state? ment to-day to newspaper correspond? ents. "I am toli_." said Mr. Balfour. "that there are some doubting critici who seem to think that the object of the missions of (ireat Britain and Franca is to inveigle the United States out of its traditions! policy and to entangle it in a formal alliance, secret or public. with Kuropean power?. I cannot imag? ine any rumor with less foundation, nor can I imagine any policy *o utterly unnecessary. Our confidence in the as? sistance which we are going to get from this community is not based upon such considerations as those which arise out of formal treaties." The Foreign Minister's statement was officially stated to have been med? as a result of his conferences during the last few days with President Wil aon and Secretary Lansing. It was gen? erally regarded as disposing finally of suggestions in some quarters that the United States might be asked to sign a treaty not to make a separate peace. Thanks People of U. S. ! For Warm Reception "Gentlemen: I am very much oblige?! to you for coming here to-day and giv? ing me the opportunity of expressing to you personally, and through you to i the great American public, how very deeply we who belong to this mission sent from Britain value the kindness, the enthusiasm, the warmth of wel? come which we have received in this capital city of the United States. All our hearts aro gratitied and touched personally. We are even more deeply touched by it as being the outward end visible manifestation of sympathetic emotion in carrying out and responding to a great call, which is the real se? curity for our success. "No man who has had the oppor? tunity which I have enjoyed in the last fe.w days of seeing, hearing and talk ii.g to leading members of your state can for one moment doubt the full de? termination of the American people to throw themselves into the greatest conflict which haa ever been waged in this world. Americans Not Aware Of What War Really Is "I do not suppose that it is possible for you- 1 am sure it would not ht possible for me were I in y-jur place to realize in detail, in concrete detail all that this war means to those whe have been engaged in it for now two years and a half. That is a feeling which comes and can only come by actual ex. perience. Wc on the other aide of th?
