Proposal Shown by Him By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON June 27 CPA President Hoo vers European war debtand reparations pro posal was so sud den that it will be some time be fore its full ef fect can be esti mated accura tely Had congress been in session a discussion of both sides of the question would have started im mediately True the opinions of many of the lawmakers have been telegraphed in from as many differ ent directions but they came as in dividual utterances not as an in terchange of views which would have been more enlightening In Washington itself virtually all comment has come from presiden tial appointees Naturally it has been enthusiastically favourable to the presidential suggestion This just goes to show why any president prefers to have the capital to himself at critical junctures and congress scattered to the four points Turn ft 1agc B Column FATHER CONFESSES KILLING LAD Globe TO BUDGE SHiP INRU Mud Hillig and Hoiriis Spend Day in Copenhagen Shopping and Paying Calls

Hoover today kept In close com munication with Parisian confer ence rooms where representatives of two governments sought to re move immediate obstacles to an intergovernmental debt holiday The difficulties were reduced overnight with the French chamber of deputies approval of its minis trys attitude toward the morator ium proposal This brot some en croachment to the chief executive and Washington officialdom gener ally altho there was no effort to delicacy and deliber ateness with which the next work must be accomplished Important DHIcrenco Ono important point stood out in the differences between the Wash ing and Paris viewpoints This was President Hoovers stand that the debt suspension include all inter governmental payments and the French insistence that there be no interruption in Germanys uncondi tional reparations installments In addition the United States ad ministration had to take into con sideration that pledges of congres sional support made earlier in tho week were based largely upon the assumption that there would be no modification of the presidents plan as originally announced Stimson Enroutc Secretary Mellon and Ambassador Kdge bore the brunt of negotiations in Paris today fortified by fresh in structions from their president while Secretary Stimson was en route for Europe to engage Jn per sonal discussions with the leading statesmen of the continent Hoover at his Rapidan fishing camp today could look back upon a week of unusual activity of inter national importance Last Saturday night he announced his offer to suspend for a year beginning July 1 payments on war debts to the United States provided other coun tries would declare a moratorium for a like period on all intergovern mental obligations Most of the powers involved havrt accepted the idea The future of thu entire plans rests principally upon reconciliation of the French and American attitudes Concessions Forecast Suggestions in diplomatic circles forecast

tend tho that the American ne gotiators will insist that no interest be charged on the resulting credits and that they be available only to Germany Hope was expressed that by the time Secretary Stimson reaches Paris after conferring with Italian cfflcials the major barriers to con summation of the plan will hav been overcome The secretary of state however is prepared to join Secretary Mellon and Ambassador Kdpc in the preliminary talks Meanwhile tho administration continued hopeful that no barrici will develop to congressional ap proval of necessary legislation Girls Arm Is Broken CRYSTAL

Laval and Andrew WMellon American secretary of the treasury conferred for two hours and a today on the momentous issues raised by Frances answer to Presi dent Hoovers war debt proposal and announced at the conclusion of the conference that tiey would meet again Monday By a majority of 197 the cham ber of deputies today upheld tho French government on Its reply to the Hoover moratorium plan and au thorized Premier Laval to continuo negotiations with Mellon After a stormy session beginning yesterday noon and ending this morning the deputies adopted by a vote of 38G to 189 a motion ap proving the governments stand with qualifications Premier Laval thereby won one of the most brilliant victories in the history of parliament by wring ing from a reluctant chamber its approval of his counterproposal which provides that Germany shall be granted a one year moratorium on reparations payments only in accordance with the Young plan Fear Armaments The critics of the governments those who paid hom age to President Hoovers based their attack on the premise that Germany might use the pro ceeds of the plan for constructing armaments or for economic dump ing Leon Blum socialist leader argued on the contrary that coop eration with Germany must be sought in order that the cause of disarmament and economic rehabil itation might be promoted In Eu rope When sentiment seemingly had reached an impasse Premier Laval took a hand and decided the fate of the day Speaking impromptu from his place in grave tones which im pressed all his hearers he outlined Frances position towards Americi and Germany in a few telling phrases Ploada With Deputies He placed the responsibility foi the vote squarely on the chamber and pleaded with the deputies to vote not for the government hul 1or France He told thorn that how ever much they disliked the Hoovei plan there was no alternative and that its advantages offset its difi advantages France proud of her parliament looked forward today
