GROAT, (United Press Staff Correspondent.) BERLIN, Nov. 2-The food situation overshadowed politics in Germany today as .priciys soared to new' heights. Prices trebled over night. Eggs and butter could not be bought in Berlin, today for any money. Merchants either were holding back supplies for higher prices or had been unable to replenish their stocks. The socialist ministers in the Stresemann coalition cabinet remained absent from its meeting to- regimerit. A further summons will follow." Notices added that factories were expected to allow workers to enlist and to keep their positions open for them while they were serving and try to continue their salaries.

The French charge conferred with Hughes a day or so ago, it Is learned, and Informed this government of Premier. Poincare's attitude regarding the powers of the reparations commission to the general effect that the conference of experts cannot go into the question of changing the present total of the German indemnity. Hughes Immediately replied with a complete statement of the attitude of the American government, it is understood pointing out that ho regards such attempts by France to limit the scope of the conference in advance as most serious, t. These facts constitute the explanation of the sudden change' from confident optimism to extreme pessimism late yesterday on the part of high officials here regarding the proposed reparations conference. The statement to France by Hughes is interpreted as a request for a complete re-affirmation of the attitude of the French government on the conference in other wor|\ that Hughes has called for a showdown. Premier Poincare is expected to reply soon. The fate of the proposed parley is regarded in informed quarters here as hanging by a thread. There is not the slightest doult in Washington that Hughes will withdraw the Ame'rican government from this final attempt to bring about a settlement of the reparations question if Poincare continues to insist on his restrictions on the conference. In this case It also is believed that Hughes woulcf- make a complete statement to the American people of the failure of this latest move to settle the European crisis and would place the blame for this failure where it belongs.

PARIS, Nov. 2-France faces the threatening dissolution of Germany with conflicting emotions. Although it would leave her more powerful than at any time since Napoleon and would end thQ bugaboo of fear of Germany's "war of revenge" the price is too great. This is the gist of the opinion of Premier Poincare and French ^gov-eminent circles as outlined in official statements. It is realized that Germany's break up would end once for all the hope of extracting reparations from Germany. The component states would each be too weak economically and financially to contribute to reparations even if subjected to / force, it is believed. And the one thing France needs and must have soon is reparations payments in cash or kind. She has advanced eighty billions of francs to her people In the war stricken regions to repair the devastation while awaiting payments from Germany. This huge sum is set aside in a special budget charged' to Germany. If nothing is forthcoming from Germany France will be con^ fronted by a great financial crisis- and possibly bankruptcy. At present interest charges on money borrowed to advance upon Germany's account is reaching large proportions.
