Copyright 1029 for Payment Commercialization Scheme Believed Basis for Settlement PARIS May 3 Owen D Young and Dr Hjalraar Schacht to day sought a last minute solution of the ponderous reparations pro blem in closed door conferences Strictest secrecy surrounded the subject of their conversations but it was said they represented an at tempt to thrash out a scheme for commercialization of a part of the reparations debt which would be ac ceptable to both Germany and the allies It is on commercialization that the offers of Germany and the cred itor nations thus far have ulti mately come to grief if a satisfac tory commercialization arrange ment could be made a tentative set tlement could be easily possible Few of the experts held any real hope such will eventuate however It was authoritatively stated Dr Schacht brot back no new offer with him from Berlin and that so far Young had presented nothing new Instead it was said both are mull ing over previously discussed ar rangements seeking to find an Idea which might be fitted into another plan which would be acceptable It was suggested In one source that if Germany would agree to commercialize a large sum the al lies might agree to moderate the size of the annuities for a limited period with the hope that future payments could be met with the profits from the international bank or greatly reduced thru a discount
