| ON REPARATIONS Part in Geneva Conference i Believed Essential for Set tlement of Problem. ! By the Associated Press. i GENEVA, September 17.—The belief > prevailed today that the United States j. would undoubtedly be asked to par [ ticipate in the deliberations pf the com ; mission of experts that will work for a complete and definite settlement of the reparations problem. After a series of conversations Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium and Japan reached an agreement to name a com mission. and an accord was reached in principle for special official negotiations looking to evacuation of the Rhineland. In some circles the opinion was held that discussion of reparations would lMd to a discussion of war debts in general. Disclaimers Are Issued. Disclaimers were issued, however, that Europe had any wish to drag the United States into the reparations discussion. Nevertheless, the general opinion in .political circles appeared to be that nothing sound, complete or final could be achieved without the collaboration of | America either through governmental . representatives or financiers who would i reflect Washington's views. t When delegates of 50 nations to the Assembly of the League of Nations heard of the accord, the opinion was voiced that statesmen have begun to write the last chapter on liquidation of the consequences of the great war. Not only representatives of European governments, but those from lands be vond the seas as well, saw- in the pre . liminary agreement a solid basis for ef fective collaboration between the gov | emments and peoples for a general so lution of the problems left by the war ! and particularly of all financial prob lems arising from fixation of German reparations on a basis of Germany’s capacity to pay. Agreement Called Colossal. Some Geneva newspapers in describ ing the agreement called it colossal. That Japan was invited to sit on the commission of financial experts which will tackle the reparations problem was taken to indicate that Europe’s belief was that the question was not only European, but international, in its 1 scope and possible repercussions. I A German spokesman said today that when the discussions began there would i be recorded the necessities and the hopes of Germany and the allies in connection with reparations. The Ger man belief was that Seymour Parker Gilbert, agent general for reparations, had already admirably paved the way for the proposed study. The belief was generally expressed also that the negotiations would have a repercussion on the Berenger accord tinder which France has been pro visionally making debt payments to the United States. Some thought that It would be difficult, if not impossible, to avoid discussion of the relation of German reparations to interallied debts In -general. PARTICIPATION VIEWED UNLIKELY Washington Receives Rather Coldly Reparations Discussion Plan. By the Associated Press. Geneva dispatches intimating that an attempt might be made by the allied governments to induce Washington to participate in the work of the com mission which will deal with the repara tions problem were rather coldly re ceived in official quarters today. It was stated flatly that the only in formation on the subject before the State Department was that conained in news dispatches. Beyond that, comment was refused. U. S. Viewpoint W’ell Known. The policy of this Government, which regards the reparations and war debt questions as wholly separate, has been reiterated so often that the further suggestion in the Geneva dispatches that the reparations conversations w’ould lead to a general discussion of war debts Is held not to reflect the Amer ican viewpoint. The only American participation in the reparations discussion at any pre vious time was in connection with the allotment of 2*4 per cent of the general paymens made by Germanw under the Dawes plan to sat isfy the costs of occupation covering the periods during which there was an American Army on the Rhine. The United States Government was rep resented at the Dawes plan and sub ''//j>/////j>////;////////////////////////////s///77^ Insulating Board $ New, different, better is this $ v amazing Certainteed Company’s new insulating board—a remark- i s able heat and sound insulator. $ $ Greater strength, greater rigidity, 5; | a finer surface. s Per 1,000 Sq.
