Berlin was generally ad verse today on publication of the new Young plan for reparations but the papers were sharply divided ac cording to parly prejudices The nationalists are bitterly an tagonistis to the agreement but Uia liberals are inclined to more mod erate criticism some seeing a defin ite cause for satisfaction The nationalist Deutsche Zeitung says defiantly We fling a flat no at this make shift solution and all constitutional means will be justified to destroy this Paris plan even against the governments will Proposition Absurd The democratic Vossische Zeilung hopes for a final debt annulment and declares The proposition is absurd that a nation should for two generations pay other nations war damages Even in the allied camp and es pecially in the United States eco nomic common sense will win event ually and must lead if not to com plete annulment at least to a sane reduction in the international war debts Until then we must trust in the future and work for the econom
