rAtlTS. April 4. Nothing has been
announced regarding France's next
step with regard to the sending of.
German troops into the Ruhr coal
basin, with the exception or a vague
official statement which said that any
military measures the French gov
ernment has under consideration are
merely for the. purpose of forcing
Germany to adhere strictly to the
terms of the peace treaty.
"The military measures under the
government's consideration have as
their sole object the forcing Of Ger
many to respect articles 42 and 44 of
the peace treaty, which forbid the
presence of German troops in the zone
i0 kilometers east of the Rhine." the
statement says.. "They are therefor
purely restrictive measures." ,
Newspapers Give View.
Such measures were taken by the
afternoon newspapers to mean the
occupation of Frankfort. Hanail. Ham

expressed the belief that official an

Freer Guarantee Offered.
Receipt of the note, which was ad
dressed to the president of the peace
conference, was announced by Pre
mier Millerand Saturday. Dr. Goep
pert offered the fresh guarantee that
an allied commission be sent to the
lluhr valley to verify that the pres
ence of troops is necessary.
Comment has been aroused here by
the fact that the note was addressed
to the president of the peace con
ference and. not to the French pre
mier. The afternoon papers deduced
from" this- that Germany hopes that
allies "Judgment of her case will dif
fer from, that of France."
It was understood that Dr. Goep
