American Forces Delegates to Take I p Arms Angle at Once
Security Phase, Insisted on by France, tines to Special Committee
GENEVA, May 23-<UP> Pressing on after his oratorical triumph of yesterday, Norman H Davis, chief United States delegate to the disarmament conference, forced delegates of the leading European powers to agree today to discuss disarmament at once, leaving discussion of security to a special committee.
The General Steering Commission of the conference, in a half hour meeting after that of the Big Five,” decided to take notice of French claims by discussing reduction of war materials and security on alternate days before the full commission.
This compromise was aimed at satisfying both the United States and France.
The commission was asked to take up war materials at its meeting today, and to discuss possible texts of consultative pacts and the definition of an aggressor nation tomorrow afternoon At Davis’ suggestion it was agreed to devote tomorrow morning to private negotiations calculated to lead the way to agreements.
Consultative pacts are desired by France and her allies as an additional safeguard against attack France wants to leave the question of disarmament for some future time Davis persuaded her to talk disarmament now.
The concession was of major importance after Davis’ speech yesterday in wh.ch he offered the history making United States proposals of co-operation with European nations. in event any nation breaks the peace France said her security, and that oi her allies, must be discussed before actual disarmament By last midnight Davis had induced them to agree that while security must be talked publicly,. disarmament should be. discussed privately at the same time Tile “Big Five’’ met today at the hotel of Arthur Henderson, chairman of the disarmament commission.

ll. X. LOSS ON WAH DEBTS, BILLION
Comes as Result of Depreciation of American Dollar, It Is Stated
WASHINGTON, May 23 'Copyright, 1933, by United Pres*) The United state* Government has suffered a “paper loss ’ of more than $1,000,000,4)00 on war debts owed by foreign countries as a result of depreciation of the American dollar, it was estimated today.
Monetary authorities pointed out that payments on the $11,426,777,854 war debts due the United States may be made in any kind of United States money, because passage of the fin rn bill earlier this month made ill I United States money legal tender Hie debts previously had been payable only in gold.
As United States paper money already has depreciated in terms of for-1 eign currency anywhere from IO to I 20 per cent, lf foreign governments take advantage of the privilege to pay in other than gold money, their debt burden would be reduced a corresponding amount.
Debtors might also purchase United States Government bonds with de-
