International News Service:
WASHINGTON, Lec. 3. The

ed today. Legislation granting such
authority will soon be asked of con
gress ly the secretary of the treas
ury. Further loans to the allies are re
quisite for the reconstruction pe
riod. The governments associated
with tho United States in war must
have food for their peoples and raw
materials to rebuild their countries.
"Until certain of the allied coun
tries can resume their normal activ
ities the United States should be
prepared to sell them on credit, even

The total of credits extended by
the United States to the allies to
date amounts to J 8, 1 9 6,57 6,66
These credits were established dur
ing the period from Avril 24, 1917,
to date, approximately 19 months.
At the beginning of the war con
gress provided an appropriation of
Jlo.OOO.eOO.OOO fr the purpose of
establishing credits in favor of for
eign governments at war with the
enemies of America. The balance
of this appropriation, therefore, is
now $1, Son. 423, 331.
Officials declined to comment on
whether Mr. McAdoo's decision to
ask congress for authority for a
continuation of loans meant that
j America would he called on to grant
I loans to the allies in excess of the
I -villaining credit balance, or whether
! the authority was necessary because
the lilies will soon he no longer
; officially at war with the present
enemies of America. Such com
' ment was withheld as it cannot be
accurately determined now to what
j extent the allied governments will
! reoalre further credits.
i WIU ls AU ThN YiKir-
' u is known, however, from sec'y
McAdoo's annual rejort. that the
treasury" expects that all of the pres

be extended as credit to the allies
during the present fiscal year.
No estimate of further loans in
excess of the J 1 G.noo. OOO.nno appro

Sec'y McAdoo has said that it is
important that foreign loans be dis
continued as soon as may be, "hav
ing due regard to the conditions of
! our industries and the essential
nefds of the foreign governments;
and in the meantime the loans
j should be held down to a minimum."

WITH PRES'T WILSON ABOARD
THE GEORGE WASHINGTON.
SOMEWHERE AT SEA, Dec. 5.
(By Wireless to New York) Pres't
Wilson is spending most of his time
in his quarters on the George Wash
ington, because he is suffering from
a slight cold.
The presidential trip has been un
eventful up to date.
The George Washington is being
paced by the battleship Pennsylvan
ia, flanked by a destroyer flotilla.
Since leaving port, the transport
has been making 17 knots an hour.
Pres't Wilson took a brief consti
tutional upon the deck, afterward
reading an accumulation of mail. He
dictated at length to a stenographer.
Sf3 is Hough.
The weather is fine, but cold and
windy causing some roughness to
the seas.
The president will begin conferr
ing before Saturday with the other
two peace delegates on board the
ship Sec'y of State Lansing and
Henry Whit.
Pres't Wilson is likely to outlin-j
America's position at the peace con
ference at an early date, following
his arrival in France.

POLITICAL CHAOS
IN GIIRMAXY.
Iuternntlomil News Service:
LONDON, Dec. 5. (By British
Wireless Press) The political situa
tion in Germany is extraordinsjriP
ol'scure, said an Amsterdam dis
patch to the Daily Express today.
Everybody seems to be quarreling
with everybody else and every mem -
ber of the socialist party is trying
to out-do his comrade in fervor of
his republicanism. Up to the present
two grave dangers seem to be con
fronting the new republic.

whole fabric of Bismarck's German
confederation:
2 The quarrel between the Ber
lin military soviet, with its majority j
of extremists and bolshevists and the j
Berlin executive committee. j
Radicals Making Capital.
The whole situation indeed is
1 chaotic and the radicals are natural
i , . ... , . T. ,
ly making capital out of it. The re-
, J ... . . . .
publican government is not even
publican government
able to settle the question of sum
moning the German electorate for
elections to the national assembly.
It is announced that the election
j will take place on Feb. 16, and that
I it will extend to "the whole of the
German territory as that territory
existed on Aug. 1. 1014." which is
i naturally farcical as l.o election to
j the reichstag ever can take placo
again in Alsace-Torrr. ine. On th3
other hand the government is urging
the allies to bring about a prelimin-
i arv peace sometime in Januar: be
fore Germany has a real responsible
government.
The whole German situation is
characterized by similar contradic
tions. The Germans want the allies
to treat them as an orderly nation
while they pjve every sign
early shipwreck in anarchy.
