such subjects as tariffs and mone tary problems in order to pave the way for a successful world econom ic conference in London To outline the aspects of the threatening European political situ ation which will arouse American cooperation not in alliances or European entanglements but in a neighborly helpfulness for their so lution The prime minister faces the risk of many disappointments but the

Mr Roosevelt into a discussion of the war debts but it is obvious here that British public opinion demands a discussion of this issue and Mr MacDonald as indicated to the commons yesterday will merge this problem into the broader landscape of world economic problems Some newspapers here have led sections of the public to believe that as soon as Mr MacDonald sets foot within tlie white house Mr Roose velt will present him with a debt moratorium Mr MacDonald real izes this Is not to be expected He has talked with Norman H Davis the United States special ambassador is fully acquainted with

MacDonalds mis sion is his hope of bringing Amer ican influence to bear on the threat ening European political problems MacDonald sees the danger of Europe not only again becoming two armed camps but
