LONDON. Feb. 16. Representa tives of the American commission for relief in Relgium will not with draw from the occupied portions of P.elylum and northern France, as previously has been arranged, but will remain for the present, it now is stated. The commission received Thursday a dispatch from its otIUe in Rotter dam stating that at a meeting held in Rrussels, the German authorities announced that all representatives of the commiFsion might remain In Belgium and northern France on the same footing as heretofore. Present at this meeting were Paron von Der Lancken, civil governor of Brussels, the American and Spanish ministers, representatives of the Belgian relief commission and of the Belgian na tional committee. rillTIj ANOTIIKIl til-:ilMAX iiLurr has ijkiin caijj:d. WASHINGTON, Feb. 16. News of Germany's retraction of .her or der forcing the American members of the Belgian relief committee to K-.ve Belgium and northern France was received by state department of ficials and by Herbert C. Hoover, chairman of the committee, with both surprise and pleasure. Apart from a brief telegram from Brand Whltlock saying negotiations of some sort were under way, neither the department nor Mr. Hoover had any official advices on the subject. The impression here Is that Ger many did not expect the commis sion's prompt and final response to the suggestion that "a few Ameri cans, among thm Brand Whitlock, might reside in Brussels and exer cises general, supervision of the work." The commission refused flat ly to accept this compromise and at once ordered all its men to with draw from the field. Half American control probably never would have been recognized by the .allied governments. If a handful of Americans had continued jon in restricted supervision unable to leave Brussels, there had been otlicial intimations from the British that supplies would no longer be passed through the blockade. The question therefore was placed direct ly before Germany by the complete withdrawal as to whether she would or would not evict American relief from Belgium and northern France.
