London. Jan. 8. A reply from the central powers to the statement of British war aims made by Premier Lloyd George Saturday is awaited here with the greatest interest. It is be lieved they cannot decline to reply in some form and to make the reply more straightforward and definite than any previous statement of their aims. But if the German papers correctly mirror the situation there, the test which the bolsheviki have made of Germany's attitude toward the prin ciple of no annexations has thrown Germany Into political turmoil. Ad vices from the capitals of neutral countries bordering on Germany show that the opinion prevalent there is that one of the most severe national crises in the history of Germany is develop ing as a result of the difference of views between the militarist and non militarist leaders regarding the gov ernment's attitude toward Russia.

Chattanooga People Tell How: Von Ludendorf, as leader of the former group, actually has gone so far as to threaten the resignation of himself and Field Marshal Von Hindenburg if further countenance is given even to such views as those advanced by man of the type of Dr. Von Kuehlmann and Count Czernin, the German and Aus trian foreign ministers. At the same time the view of Von Kuehlmann and Czernin fall to satisfy the German socialists, who regard their middle-of-the-road policy as tricky and who also are determined that the spirit of the reichstag reso lution must be followed and without qualification or reserve. Neutral observers declare that the gap between the German parties sud denly has becomo a chasm so wide that there is little hope of bridging it and that the development of an inter nal crisis of serious proportions seems Inevitable. Ent.nte United in Aims. On the other hand It Is pointed out that the various parties In entente countries never appeared so completely united as in their support of the war aims formulated by Premier Lloyd George.
