PRI03 TWO CENTS ID NEWS-TIM MOTES TO FORM BASIS OF ROLFS 1 WARFARE Expect United States' Repre sentations to Great Britain and Germany to Result in Diplomatic negotiations. CHALLENGES AUTHORITY OF "PAPER BLOCKADE" Declaration o? "War Zone" on Water Is Held Without Pre cedent ar.d American Lives and Ships Must Be Inviolate. Tho full text of mo Failed States notes to Great Britain ami Germany will be found on page nine of this issue. WASHINGTON, Feb. 1:'. That the notes sent by tho United States to Germany and Kngland in an ofu t serving notice that the-. American Mag and American rights must 1m- rispeet td, will open long diplomatic nego tiations which will establish the basis fur international rules on the use of neutral Hags and .submarine warfare on merchant vessels was the belief in administration circles today. It was pointed out by officials, that the government thought it best to speak plainly in these notes at this time rather than wait until the public might be aroused bv some loss of American life or property. Washing ton believes the notes will produce an excellent effect in both the Fnited States and other neutral nations. Something of a sensation was caused among the diplomats in Wash ington when they read the text of the note. The drastic character, espe cially of the German note, had not been anticipated anil diplomats indi cated that it virtually commits the I'nited .States to a course of action which may lead to trouble with Ger many unless the latter reverses its an nounced polity of using submarines .n merchantmen carrying supplies to Great Britain. Opixw "Paper Blockade."' It Is pointed tut that the note places this nation in entire antag onism to the so-called "paper block ade," of England by Germany. Amer ican snipping must be protected at any cost, savs the state department note, and this govcrnnij5t will not tolerate een the suggestion that steamships .f this country may be blown tip accidentally by occasional e lerman submarines. In adopting this course, it was stated, the American government was acting under recognized principles of international law. as neutrals had a right to expect the ships of the bel ligerents to recognize the practice of taking passengers and crews to a place of safety before destroying a vessel as a prize of war. The fame was said to be true of the issue invoiced between tile United States and Rngland. .i N m :ss T form The reply of Gnat Britain is not expected to raise an isue between the two governments, because it is gc n rally regarded as inconceivable that Great Britain should seek to maintain the right of her vessels to use th flag of the I'nited States de spite the I'nited States protest. And if Great Britain concedes that the deceptive use of the American flag i wrong, she mut in the opinion of tdato department officials express her regret that justifiable au-- of com plaint has hi en given and pledge her self to do all that she an to aoid such cause of oticnse ar.d danger in the future.

If Germany shall refuse to iteide from her position that neutral vessels in entiling the set war zone which she has deviated to do so at V oir own iisk. it i- admitted that, a Very seii ous situation will be presented,. In that ease the United States would be confronted with the alternative cither f warning its merchant ves sels to k i-ji nil' of the declared war zone to run the risk of a disaster which would inflame public sentiment in this country. It is evident fr.Mn the American r.oto that the gov.rnment dots not in tend to warn its vessels to keep out of the war ;:o:ie no matter what Ger many's attitude may lc, "Put w ill in sist upon th ir right to traverse the declared zone without danger of at tack.
