Promise Reparations If
Pleas Granted in Note'
To Commission.
BERLIN. Nov. 3.?Germany has
; outlined her plan for dealing with
the reparations and economic situa
tion in a memorandum presented fo
the reparations commission by Min
ister Hermes.
The memorandum calls for a long
term moratorium?five years is re
garded by the Germans as the neces
sary time?loans from other powers
and renunciation of allied priority to
some extent on guarantee so that
these can be used for foreign nations
who loan to Germany. If such con
ditions are met with, the German
government promises to do its ut
most to balance its budget and sta
bilise the mark..
While insisiting upon the impossi
bility of making reparations pay
ments at present. Minister Hermes
says Germany is willing to construct
northern France under certain con
ditions which 4n turn depend on what
foreign credits are obtained.
Says Mark In Problem.
BERLIN. Nov. 3.?"Unless the
reparations commission discovers an
expedient enabling the stabilization
I of the mark and the balancing of the
German budget I fear that Germany
is bound to go the san\e way as Aus
tria." said Sir John Bradbury, the
British member of the reparations
commission, today.
"In Berlin we found Chancellor
Wlrtn and the finance minister strain
I ing every nerve to give the repara
tions commission an insight into the
| exact situation in Germany The
, main problem is to find a way to sta
bilize the mark. An international
loan will only be considered after a
j solution of this problem, but a loan
j remains impossible without stabili
I zation of the mark."
