WASHINGTON, D. C.— With the
Lantung negotiations already at a
jeiicate stage Chinese delegates threw
, new element of controversy into
pe Far Eastern negotiations hy ask
* ng that the treaties resulting from the
amotis 21 demands be abrogated.
The Japanese immediately objected

he Far Eastern committee adjourned,
jefore another meeting Is held all na
ional delegations will prepare to
jve an opinion on whether the Chi
iese proposal can properly be taken
p under the conference agenda.
Meantime all delegation spokesmen
(except the Chinese are declining to
iscuss the subject.
In the view of the Chinese repre
(tentatives the subject actually is be
ore the conference and must be dis
missed and disposed of.
Further complicating the negotia

I BERLIN.—Return of Dr. Walter

predicted as a result of the negotia

I i)r. Rathenau is supposed to be act
ing in the interest of the Wirth gov
ernment in an effort to prepare pay
ments in kind as a substitute for the
gold installments for reparations
'which Germany has been obliged to
pay at the expense of currency infla
tion. It is hoped by Dr. Rathenau to
persuade the allies to permit Germany
to make the major part of her obliga
tory payments in chemicals, dyes, pot

sibly, ultimately, an agreement similar
to the Wiesbaden agreement.
