President's Prompt Reply to Note Will Insist That Liner Did Not Carry Hidden Guns DANGER IN ALL COMMENT SUGGESTS THE PRESIDENT Rejoinder Likely Be En Route to Berlin by Real Change In Noted BY JOHN EDWIN NEVIN Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON C June today suggested the ability of withholding comment on the German situation for the present Now that he has the complete official text of the German reply before him and has discussed it with the cabinet it might be dangerous to wide conjectures as to the exact nature of the reply lie said The president told his callers that he was very hopeful the reply could be completed so as to go for- ward to Berlin very soon It was later the rejoinder would be on route probably by day certainly not later than Friday Because the completed without delay the president believes should refrain entirely from com- menting on it or outlining its contents as conjectures regarding it arc cabled abroad immediately and invariably cause trouble for the United
