Moratorium on Reparations
Held Imperative.
Government, to Maintain Mark,
Dumps Gold on Bourse, but
Fails to Avert Crash.
(Copyright, 1922, by the New York World.
Published by Arrangement.)
BERLIN, July 8. (Special Cable.)
Germany has not 60,000,000 gold
marks left to her name. She cannot
meet the reparations payment due
July 15 next. Therefore Chancellor
Wirth expects to ask for a mora
torium. The chancellor has sent State Sec
retaries Fisher and Schroeder to
Paris and Herr Bergmann, who is at
The Hague, has also been ordered to
Paris. These three will first nego
tiate with the individuals on the rep
arations commission before formally
asking a moratorium.
For the last few weeks the
Reichsbank, backed by the govern
ment, has been throwing gold values
on the Bourse, thus trying to pre
vent a disastrous collapse of the
mark. Hundreds of millions of gold
marks were thrown on the market,
but it was impossible to hold up the
mark. The government hoped to
force up the value of the mark and
to buy gold marks enough to pay
the next installment of reparations,
but, while it had been able to do
this successfully many times in the
last year, this time the market
Government Made Poorer. ,
The Germans themselves had lost
faith in their own paper money
and, - knowing the government's
trick, bought up all the gold values
the government threw on the mar
ket, handing back worthless paper
marks to the government.-
So the government of Germany is
several hundred thousand gold
marks poorer, although most of the
gold values remain in Germany in
private hands. Industry, which had
foreseen the need of raw material,
'absorbed most of the gold marks.
Consequently the government is
forced to ask the reparations com
mission for a moratorium, even for
the 50,000,000 gold marks due July
15 and it has to ask, toot for a
further, wider distribution of fu
ture payments of reparations.
The dollar sold as high as 575
marks yesterday, a drop of more
than 100 points in the value of the
mark. There was a panic on the
Berlin Bourse. Figuratively It was
a "Black Friday" for the speculat
ors. Ever since the murder of Dr.
W&lther Rathenau the mark has
been sinking perceptibly. Yesterday
it went down with a crash. "The
mark has lost half of its value in a
few weeks. As yet the panic is lo
cal and the hope is that the Bourse
will recover before outside holders
of marks lose confidence.
Stabilising Factor Seen.
The purchase of gold values for
the reparations payment that is due
July 15 would render the drive on
the mark worse, but there is a sta
bilizing influence in that the pur
chase of foreign raw materials Is
falllhg oft while sales abroad are
gaining impetus. The financial crisis
hag jarred the quarreling politicians
Into action and, after two days,
during which the relchstag and the
Prussian landstag degenerated into
squabbling assemblages, a wider
coalition of parties i possible that
the state may be saved.
Gustav Stresemann, leader of the
people's party, has reappeared in
politics after a diplomatic period of
idleness and has accepted a proposal
to enter the government. Whether
he does so depends upon the social
ists, who are making more and
'more demands for place and power.
The communists held an open air
mass meeting yesterday and vigor
ously protested against the conduct
of the reactionaries. Tbe railroad
men are considering another gener
al strike, to be called next Tuesday,
in protest against the tremendous
cost of living. Social unrest is in
creasing, consequently there is in
creasing opposition to and interfer
ence with the police and reichwehr
by loyal supporters of the republic.
Armed Force Monarchists.
Nevertheless, the leader of the
democrats, Herr Goetz, answering
an interpellation in the relchstag,
defended the monarchists reichfi
wehr, declaring "republicans are not
good militarists. It is true that the
armed forces of the state are mon
archists at heart, but what differ
ence does it make if they serve the
republic well?"
The Bavarians continue to refuse
to take orders from Berlin. In the
Bavarian landtag yesterday Minister
of the Interior Schweyer said Ba
varia would not dismiss an official
because of his political belief, add
ing: "An official is not derelict in
his duty If he happens to believe in
the monarchy." -
The Frankfurter Zeitung says the
drop in the mark is due to the polit
ical unrest following the assassina
tion of Foreign Minister Rathenau,
and that despite the vast quantity of
paper marks, capital has not been
so scarce in 25 years. The week just
closed was the first in the present
year when there was no increase in
paper maTks the printers' strike
having stopped the note presses.
Nearly a hundred thousand billion
paper marks are in circulation.

(Copyright, 11122,'by the New York World.
Published by Arrangement.)
LONDON, July 8. (Special Cable )
Premier Lloyd George is so im
pressed with the critical situation
in Germany that he has called a
special meeting of the cabinet for
Tuesday to consider it.
Before going to Chequers for the
we'ek-end the premier had a long
conversation with Austen Chamber
lain, who is still ill at his London
home. It is believed in government
quarters that the premier will, in
the event of any sudden emergency,
suggest a meeting of the Allied
chiefs without further delay.
The British government informal
ly has approached the United States
government, through Ambassador
Harvey, to ascertain if America has
any, suggestions to make which
might have an effect on stabilizing
the situation in Germany.
General Demoralization Seen.
While the French press charges
the German government with stag
ing another crisis, to try to obtain
a reduction of -reparations, the be
lief in all responsible quarters here
is that the sensational decline - in
the value of the mark is only indi
cative of the gradual demoralization
of Germany, which has been has
tened by the assassination of Rathe
nau and the development of the
monarchistic intrigue.
The failure of the bankers' con
ference In Paris, as a result of the
French stand, was the cause, it is
held here, of the beginning of the
latest downward slide of the mark.
Then the fierman printing presses
gave it a further push by printing
a huge quantity of marks to make
good the payment of the 50 billions
of gold marks July 15, and the final
shove came with the assassination
of Rathenau and the monarchists'
France Is Stumbling-Block.
The British government, however,
is helpless to ameliorate the situa
tion so long as France maintains
the present attitude of refusing to
abate her reparations claims. Even
tually the whole questipn comes
back again to the allies' debts to
France is willing to scale down
the German reparations to the ex
tent to which Great Britain and
America are willing to relieve her
of her war debts. !
Great Britain is willing to cancel
the French war debts, but only on
the lines of a general cancellation
of war debts.
Britain Holds Solution.
Discussing the menacing situation
caused by the collapse of the mark,
the Economist says today:
"There is only one way by which
the present drift can be stayed and
opinion is turned once more in the
direction of that hope, and that is
for Great Britain to declare she is
prepared to discuss at once and
without any reference to any action
which ,the United States may take,
the terms on which fhe is prepared
to cancel the debts owed to her by
the European allies."
But if Great 'Britain takes such
steps, the Economist asserts, there
will have to be an agreement on the
question of limitation of land armaments.

Vessels Declared Ready When
ever Exporters Can Show
Need of More Carriers.
Portland can have all of the
United State shipping board ships
that are required to handle com
merce between this port and the
orient. v
This was the - substance of a
statement made last night by ex
Senator Chamberlain, now a mem
ber of the shipping board, who is
here with Mayer Lissner and Ad
miral Benson, fellow members, to
invstigate local shipping conditions.
"I have repeatedly said that when
ever Portland shippers showed the
board that they needed vessels for
freighting purposes these vessels
would be , at thefr disp&sal," de
clared Mr. Chamberlain. "We have
ships tied up and lying idle In
practically all of the big ports of
the country. We desire that these
ships be used because we want to
build up a big merchant marine for
this country. As an Oregonian, I
sincerely desire to see Portland a
great shipping center. -. I will do
anything possible to make jt such
when conditions warrant.
"The talk of shifting some of the
trans-Pacific passenger service to
this port is impractical. Today it is
divided between Seattle and San
Francisco. . Neither pof t is making
a profit on the business. To give
Portland a share of the now un
profitable business would be im
practical. This port does not want
business from which a profit can
not be made." -
Ex-Senator Chamberlain declared
it was the steadfast desire of every
member of the United States ship
ping board to see a -big merchant
marine flying the American flag.
"This cannot be accomplished un
til the American people give aid to
shipping either directly or indirect
ly," he continued. "Every citizen of
this country should Btand behind

Special Limited Inducement Of
fered by Head of School of
Higher Hnman Culture.
John Milton Scott, "psychologist
of practical idealism," the latest
recruit to the city's corps of
psychologists and darkness dispell
ers, lectured at the Lincoln high
school auditorium last night to an
audience of 35 women, 11 men and
one newspaper reporter. His sub
jects were "The Psychology of Love
and Its Successful Marriage"" and
"Marriage Wisdom Which Makes
All Marriage Days Lover Days."
The lecture was free and so were
the pamphlets setting forth the cost
of advanced courses in "the school
of the higher human culture."
The lecturer spoke principally of
love. He started in on color and
declared that when we are nervous
it is because we wear wrong col
ored clothes; that when we are irri
table it is because the color scheme
does not fit with out souls.
"Him" and "her" were discussed
at length. Everything straight is
"him;" everything crooked or curved
is "her." Greek architecture and
sculpture crept Into the lecture,
"him" figures and "her" figures,
"him" sounds and Vher" sounds,
"him" letters and "her" letters. Fish
love, bird love, four-footed love that
walks in broad meads and fertile
fields, spooning angels and rocks
that were a combination of "him"
and "her" were thrown at the 35
middle-aged women, the 11 aged
men and the bored newspaper re
porter. John Milton Scott's principal mes
sages are delivered at the school of
higher human culture, located in a
somewhat passe boarding house
occupying an ancient mansion at the
corner of Fifth and Jefferson
streets. The prices for further im
mersion in. this fountain of intelli
gence were set forth in the pam
phlets distributed at the door $25
