By the Associated PreSs. PARIS, March 1.?"the American dye industry is said to be in danger of considerable inconvenience because of the refusal of Germany ,to deliver the American share ol dyes to the repara tions commission until the contro versy between the Textile Alliance and the minority dye interests in that country is-cleared up, the Associated Press was informed today in reliable quarters. America has not received its share of the German dyes for more than four weeks, and American ex perts in Europe assert that any sreat prolongation of this situation prob ably will cause widespread disturb ance to America's newly organized dye industry. **Ke*T Dye? Vital. It is asserted that while the Aihcri can dye industry manufactures a ma jority of its own dyes, those dyes which have been supplied by Germany through the reparations commission are what are known as "key" dyes, and represent vital. color elements, without which no industry could con tinue for any length of time to per form acceptable work. America has been receiving the important dyes at the rate of $2,000,000 yearly. They include dyes manufactured in Germany from processes which up to the present time remain a secret to the outside world. Germany Served Notice. When the American government failed after two weeks to respond to a cable dispatch sent it by the repa rations commission on the subject of dye deliveries, or to a direct commu nication said to have been sent by the Textile Alliance representatives here to President Harding, Germany served notice that she did not Teel called on to deliver dyes to the commission for America unless the Washington gov ernment Indicated its approval of the Textile Alliance or some other respon sible agency for their receipt. In the meantime American observ ers say they have been Informed that Germany is quietly but effectively ex porting her dyes to the United States at prices two and three times higher than she had been credited with by the reparations commission.

GERMAN'WAR DEAD TO REMAIN ON BELGIAN AND FRENCH SOIL BERLIN, February 15.?German Mi dlers who died and were burled 05 Belgian and Frendh battlefields prob ably will remain on foreign "Oil on account of the cbat entailed In fring ing ' them home. Thla is Indicated In statements by the official bureau which is intrusted with the work pf helping relatives to identify the dead and arrange for the transportation of their bodies to Germany. Although negotiations with France and Belgium for the removal of the bodies were concluded weeks ago, not one German soldier has been ex humed for Ihe Journey home, deiplte the fact that thousands of inquiries have been made by relatives. Told that they must bear the cost of exhuming and transportation, which from France amounts to 30.000 marks, they turn away, for that sum Is now a large fortune to the average German. Consequently sentiment is growing to allow the German soldier dead to rest on the fields where they were buried or in the French or Belgian cemeteries to^whlch they have been transferred. The Information that the French are carefully tending these burial places and, where pos sible, marking the individual graves with crosses and namea also has tended to allay the feeling that these dead should not remain in a strange land. I'nder the stipulations agreed upon, none of t|je three governments as sumes responsibility for mistakes and the relative must give a guar >inte? of identity before permission Is granted for removal, which in the majority -of cases is very difficult. The German office carries on nego tiations with the Belgians and French to this end, which sometimes requires several weeks. Even those relatives who cannot or do not desire to bring; the dead soldier back to the fatherland are seeking' to establish the Identity of the fallen, and the bureaus opened In Prussia, Bavaria, Saxony and Wurttemberg to help them are ?wamped with inquiries.
