Concessions Must Be Made
if Problem Is Settled.
Economic Experts See No Hope of
America Helping' Under
Present Conditions.
(By the Associated Press.) Solution
of the German financial and indus
trial problem rests with France, in
the opinion expressed today iy well-
inforced economic experts of the
United States government. Partici
pation in any relief measures for
German rehabilitation under present
conditions was regarded. by some
officials as an economic impos
sibility.. - ' "
Viewed from the economic ange,
the German situation, it was de
clared, was solely a question of Ger
man credit, which rested upon the
reparation terms. Unless Prance
is willing to make concessions in
the matter of reparations to enable
Germany to carry her burden, Ger
many, it was asserted, cannot hope
to borrow money to continue her
rehabilitation and meet reparations
German Credit Believed NIL
Under present reparations condi
tions, some officials regard Ger
many's credit as practically nil, and
with a loan from the United States
government out of the question, it
was seen how funds from private
sources could be raised in. 'this coun
try un4l a rearrangement of the
reparations system would free suf
ficicient German securities to en
able the flotation of a loan.
France, in view of some officials,
is facing two courses with respect
to Germany, either the maintenance
of the present attitude of standing
firm and taking eventual German
payments or granting of repara
tions concessions, permitting Ger
many to make some payments in
the near future with the resultant
increase in French stability.'
French Fntne Kalllng.
The French franc, officials pointed
out, is falling, as well as the Ger
man mark, and it is believed here
that a more stable German currency
would be reflected in a improve
ment of the French exchange po
sition. The probability of Germany's
failing to make the reparations pay
ment of 50,000.000 gold marks on
July 15 was not regarded 'by offi
cials as foreshadowing any serious
economic consequences, as it was
explained that it would only be a
postponement of payment. Officials
added, however, that should the Ger
man payment be made some disrup
tion of exchanges affecting British
pounds. Scandinavian currencies and
probably the French franc, as well
would result from the purchase of
gold by the Germans to meet their
LONDON, July 8. (By the Asso

officials said today that, while no
formal representations had been
made by the British government
looking to the participation of the
United States in allied efforts to
rehabilitate Germany, the subject
had been discussed for some time in
diplomatic and other circles and the
hope expressed that the United
States might be induced to lend its
support to the project.
It is generally pointed out in
financial quarters' here and else

are instructed never to argue with
such elements, but to use their
weapons unhesitatingly. They are
urged further - to invent "new.and
irresistible weapons, for instance
the firing of explosives at a dis
tance by electricity, and to select
particularly resolute men for special
duties." " -

Policy Arraigned Scathingly.
Given such ignorance, one can
readily imagine the effect on the
unpolitical German mind of the fol
lowing series of declarations since
the year 1918:
1. We were not defeated in the
war, but betrayed by the socialist
democrats, the Jews and the pacif
ists on the eve of triumph.
2. We were cheated of our prom
ised rights by a faithless enemy.
3. Since then we have been insulted,
robbed, dishonored by breaches of
the treaty, by the extortions of the
reparations commission, by annexa
tions and by the presence of black
troops on our soil.
These statements daily have been
hammered into millions of German
minds by innumerable papers and
magazines. The whole flock of
newspapers has sprung up, thriving
wonderfully on the glorification of
kaiserism, militarism and monarch
ism. They have conducted an anti
Semitic campaign and have agitated
preparedness for revenge. Their
thrift has come largely from adver
tising by nationalist business men.
Many of these publications are di
rected by ex-officers, mostlv
and they have been propagated by
letters of recommendation from the
Hohenzollern princes.
Attacks Are Tolerated.
The republican government has
tolerated all of this and even (in
the reparations. Silesian, Rhineland
and-other disputes) has accused the
victors of breaking their word, not
realizing that such declarations
would only bolster up the national
feeling. From this belief, that out
side Germany only scoundrels live,
scoundrels who wish to ruin Ger
many and started a war against the
innocent German empire for that
purpose, it Is a short step to a
fanatical persecution of all who do
not join in the propaganda for re

One of Oldest Newspapers in
America Long Factor in Local
and National Politics.
CHICAGO, 111., July 8. The Illin
ois Staatszeitung, one of the oldest
newspapers in America and ranked
in its time as the leading German
language American newspaper, will
once more come into being tomor
row. . .
The announcement of the initial
issue of the paper states that a
number of this city's leading pro
fessional and business men are be
hind the venture to revive the .pub
lication. The Illinois' Staatszeitung passed
into the hand's of Otto Doederlein,
former United States consul at Leip
zig, Germany, during the second
Cleveland administration, at a re
cent receiver's sale.
The paper was founded in 1845
under the name of Volksfreund. In
1847 the present name was adopted
and for 75 years its political and
social influence was a factor in the
shaping of local and national af
fairs. Franz Hoffman, preacher, banker,
farmer, national economist and lieutenant-governor
of Illinois, was its
first editor. Among the men of the
Staatszeitung, whose names are
linked with the country's history,
may be mentioned Brenttano, Vocke,
Raster, Rapp, Mannhardt and the
two Hesings. "
The strength of its leadership
consisted in a faithful interpreta
tion and application of the ideals of
true Americanism; and notwith
standing the fact that It had linked
is destinies to the victorious char
iot of the republican party, its chief
concern has been the welfare of the
people, and an uncompromising de
mand for honesty in politics and
political offices. 1
Its decline began before the world
war. And when internal financial
troubles were added those incident
to the war fever, it collapsed. 1

from the trolley he dropped a dis
