CONFUSION FOLLOWS SIGNING OF TREATY (Fv the As5f*cintf*«l Fress) j Genoa, April 18.- The organizers j of the Genoa economic conference were today trying to groupe their way out of the confusion caused by the Russo-German bombshell which exploded in the signing of a formal treaty of peace between Germany and soviet Russia at Rapello on Sun day. Judicial experts of allied nations met today to consider whether the new pact violates the provisions of the 'treaty of Versailles. Representatives of both the German and the Russian governments, however, contend that the treaty in no way affects other powers participating in the confer ence. The treaty provides for renunciation of war expenses, damages and expend itures incurred through war prisoners, and renunciation also of all claims of German individuals or the state it self against the soviet republic. Resumption of consular and dplo rnatic relations is to take place im mediately, commercial relations are to be regulated on the favored nation | principle, and the rights of citizens of both countries in the territory of the other are to be conserved. The two governments will assist each other in their economic difficul ties, and the German government de clares itself ready to facilitate econo mic contracts between private enter i prises in the two countries.
