Was Once Conservative in Cuba By CHARLES P STEWART A SHIN GT ON Aug 20 CPA Mario G Menocal cap tured leader of the latest upris ing to free Cuba from President Gerardos tyran ny himself serv ed two presiden tial terms in Ha vana as a con to say as many f his countrymen dld say while ho was in office a rank reactionary President Ma cbado the most unqualified despot that Latin Amer ica has known in a generation was elected as a liberal Party labels evidently signify as little in Cuba as in the United States senate Incidentally Colonel Carlos Men dieta who opposed President Meno cals administration to the extent of heading a formidable tho ultimate ly unsuccessful rebellion against it in 1917 but readily became chid lieutenant of the movement to over throw Machado in Menocnls favor always has called himself a nation alist if that means anything IT7ASHINGTON diplomacys prin cipal urge thruout tho entire period of Cubas plainly growing dis satisfaction with the re Turn to 5 Column Reparations Revision Must Originate in U WILL NOT BUDGE Gandhi Is Unrepentant Viceroy T Up Tour of All hope tHat Mahatma qaridhl might help England frame a new constitution for India appeared to have vanished today with a blunt statement by Gandhi at Ahmedabad that he Is unrepentant for publish ing his indictment against the gov Similarly Viceroy Willingdon stiffened his attitude at Calcutta nnd decided to abandon his fortnight tour of India and return to Simla to deal with Gandhischal lenge He was represented as feel ing that Gandhis presence at the second round table conference is impossible in view of his broadside charging breaches in the Delhi pact Thus India seems once more to be en the verge of calamitous civil dis obedience campaign for Gandhi already has declared he will not ac cept the conferences decisions as binding upon the nationalists and will renew his fight against the government if it fails to grant his demands for selfgovernment un fettered by British control Whatever chance existed for an understanding between the Mahat ma and the viceroy appears to have been wiped out by Gandhis pre cipitate publication of his charge sheet against the British

BRITISH CIRCLES CLAIM AMERICA MUST LEAD WAY PanEuropean Group Is Expected to Consider Wiggin Report I ONDON Aug 20 The inllla L live in revisionof the war debts and reparations schedules recom mended by the Wiggin committee authoritative British circles believe must come from the United States America it is contended is the eventual repository of the war debts and most of the reparations and Europe can dp nothing until Wash ington leads the way The British viewpoint remains as t always has been that a great Britain receives only as much in reparations as she needs to pay her war debts and so long as thedebt obligations remain she will not take the initiative in cancellation or scaling down It is believed possible that offi cial and public opinion in the Uni ed States may come around to the British conclusion that the debt sit uation is retarding business recov ery and that eventually there must be some change CUBAN REBEL CHIEFS AFTER THEIR CAPTURE WASHINGTON SILENT WASHINGTON Aug 20 Administration silence still cloaUed oday reactions of the Washington government to suggested solutions of Germanys economic plight put J of international Bankers High officials doubted that any Immediate occasion for a policy declaration by the Hoover adminis tration would arise While the Wig gin report will be studied closely it was intimated that it has already disclosed ramifications even beyond the question of revision of inter governmental debts which attracted irst attention The Wiggin committee has in jected trie question of private Ger man debts sharply into discussion of the world depression remedies Up to now relation of Germany to the worldwide economic crisis has been dealt with in international conferences and negotiations only from the aspect of intergovern mental debts reparations due from Germany and war debts due the United States Whether the report of the Wig gm committee foreshadows some definite trend to work out a method of scaling down all of these German commitments both public and pri vate or is to be taken merely as an advisory warning from the bankers is not known in Washington Com ment on the committee report made in Basel was refused in govern mental quarters MAY DEBATE REPORT BASEL Switzerland Aug 20 T meeting of the PanEuro pean commission at Geneva on Sept 3 loomed today as the first occasion on which assembled statesmen of the great powers would have an op portunity to consider the recom mendations of the Wiggin commit tee of international bankers The problems of the revision of reparations the settlement of lin gering disputes between European nations and the shattering of tariff walls it was said in informed quarters would be tackled by the foreign ministers of the countries concerned under the harmonious auspices of the league of nations Is Considered Obstacle The fact thatthe United States Is not a member of the commission however was considered to be an obstacle and the suggestion was made that President Hoover appoint an American representative for the meeting The interrelation of rep arations and war debts is so close it was felt that the deliberations would not be effective without co operation from Washington The convening of the assembly of the league four days later bringing together delegates from almost every nation also was advanced as a possibility for tackling the issue 200 Are
