The attitude of the administration
with relution to discussion of the in
terallied debts was developed in con
nection with recently published sug
gestions in London that the British
would welcome consideration of loan
mutters at the Washington meeting.
Officials here were represented us tak
ing tiie view that the conference
should be limited to matters which
might involve differences of a nature
likely to lead to armed conflict. In
terallied debts is not considered by of
ficials here in that category.
The further statement was made
that tiie American delegation at the
forthcoming conference, lacking con
gressional authority, could not agree
.to such consideration of tiie debt
question, even if it was desired that
it should be undertaken. The admin
istration’s desire that debt funding
legislation be enacted in advance of

on practical matters, not on anxiety,
