It was this method alone, the
secretary's statement plainly Indicated,
which in the view of the
American government would make
possible American (.economic aid
to Europe. '
Secretary Hughes' address and
Senator Borah's withdrawal of his
navy bill amendment requesting
the President to call an economic
conference combined to clear the
air considerably with regard to the
effort of the American government
to be helpful in the reparations
tangle. It had been made
plain that the administration saw
no present hope of accomplishing
good results through the method
proposed by Senator Borah.
There was nothing here, today
to indicate that the American government
had it now in. mind to
take any other initiative other
than to suggest informally, as
Mr. Hughes had done, a way in
which Urn*Allied- Premiers themselves
might seek the aid .of American
economic strength in restoring
Europe. Neither the White
House nor the State Department
would give any definite Informs(Continued
