for relief in Relgium will not with

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.

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.
