OUTCOME CF VITAL INTEREST Official Viewpoint In Washington Is That the Allies Ultimately Will Be Able to Pay Us In Full. Washington. The I'nited State government considers the Allies' debt of ten billion dollars a just obligation of the Allies und deems unacceptable the suggestion made oy Germany that she take It over as part payment ot reparations to France, Great Britain, Italy and Belgium. This attitude on the part of the American government may be form ally expressed If the Vnjted States ever transmits the recent German reparation proposal to the Allies as a basis for discussion, but Inasmuch as such a step is for the moment un likely, the chances are that America will avoid formal comment on the German proposition as it affects our foreign loans. While the Washington government Is vitally Interested iu the outcome of the reparation negotiations, because of the far-reaching effect that a settle ment would have on the world's eco nomic situation, the official viewpoint here Is that the Allies will be well able ultimately to pay their debts to the I'nited States Irrespective of tho rep aration money forthcoming from Ger many to the Allies.
