NEWS NOT CONFIRMED
Paris March 1hc foreign omce
says It Is unable to confirm the an
nouncement from rterlln that Germany
Is about to yield nt Algccrlas by con
ceding French and Spanish olllcers for
the Moroccan police
However unolHclal reports today Indl
caet that Germany Is disposed to make
concessions having the effect of set
tling the FrancoGerman controversy
One Berlin report eays that Germany
will concede the policing of one Mo
rocc r port by the French the other
ports remaining under International po
lice The foreign oillce here specifically
repudiates this report saying that the
concession of 1 single port would not
be accepted If proposed
Another report received here from
Berlin says lint Germany will concede
the police to France and Spain I they
will agree to appointment of an In
spector general from a neutral ixjwor
The ofllolals here say that the latter
condition Is unacceptable They point
out that a mandate to French and
Spanish olllcfrp would not be effective
If a neutral general was placed over
them at the general would counteract
tIme French and Spanish authority
White the foreign olllco sees some di
fficulties remaining It Is evident that I
the pacific overtures from Berlin dimin
ish the gravity of the crisis and open
the way to a possible solution In which
Germany will concede tho police and
France will concede tho bank
