PARIS, August 11. —"Europe has be
gun to behave like a good girl and
today she shall have a stick of candy."
This remark which a French diplo
mat let drop today contains perhaps
slightly more sarcasm against Amer
ica than most Europeans feel, but,
nevetheless. It expresses with reas
sonable accuracy the meaning of cur
rent happenings as Europeans see
Ever since the United,States Senate
rejected the Versailles peace settle
ment, America’s official attitude has
been; “Let Europe put her own
house in order, then we will see.”
And now. apparently, America is
satisfied that Europe, by accepting
the Dawes plan, has returned to the
paths of wisdom, and as a reward
will consent to discuss annulment, or
.at any rate, easing of Europe’s war

Whether any official assurance has
been given by Washington cannot be

which the Dawes plan requires in the
shape of loans to German railways
and industries, if simultaneously
Europe’s debts to America had to be

that the plan is.not executable unless

Settlement Is Complication.
One fact that complicates the debts
questions grievously is Great Brit

opinion already is exercised for fear
that the United States will make a

Great Britain to a hard bargain.
Many Britishers seem to feel that
England has been too generous and
should have waited for a general
settlement before making a separate
deal. They forget that. Mr. Baldwin^
