The note indicated that If accept
able explanations of the vague claus

will not be rejected outright, but will

A foreign office official told the
United Press that "the offer brings
a settlement much nearer. It provides
a basis for discussion, but naturally
the proposals must be altered befoe
they can be accepted by the allies."
The foreign office regarded the note
as clumsily prepared. It asked parti
cularly that Berlin explain fully its
plan for funding the debt. It also de
sired a clear explanation of the Ger
man demand that the allies abandon
the penalties and guarantees which
have been exacted.
