As Far As Others
At present the principal deci

been that, if the other allied na

will probably feel called upon to
do likewise. The amount of this
reduction is not known, but Sec

In the other category of.
American claims against Ger
many, those included in awards
of the mixed claims commission
and amounting on September 1.
1928, to $143,777,734.38, the sec
retary said the general feeling
was that a reduction of Ger
many's annual payments would
be acceptable to the United States
if the other nations agreed to such
a cut. and provided the per cent
age of distribution among the al
lied and associated powers re
mains the same. He emphasized,
howere, that in this category,
there would be no reduction in
the total but that the amounts
collected annually by each coun
try would be smaller and the
payments would be spread over
a longer period of years.
Secretary Stimson tdded that
from the present reports the ex
perts would probably make rec
ommendations on bo'h the total
amount Germany will be asked to
pay and- on the amount ot each
annnal payment, thu3 establish
ing a definite length of time over
which the payments would extend.
Should the committee recom
mend that the amounts Germany

her with harm if she did not get it
and leave it at a named spot. She
showed the letter to school auth
orities and her family was notifi
ed. A guard was assigned to
watch over her.
A second letter, more scurrilous
than the first, describing in de
tail the torture she would under
go if the money was not forth
coming, was received by the girl,
the Post will say, it gave detailed
instructions as to how the money
was to be delivered last Saturday
afternoon. When this letter was
received an appeal was made by
the Morrow family to Ambassador
Morrow's former partners in the
firm of J. P. Morgan and company
and action was taken at Washing
ton. Secret service operatives and
private detectives were sent to
work on the case and guard the
girl, the Post will say.
Girl Is Removed
From School Secretly
It was. decided to move her
from the school secretly. This was
done and her arrival in New York
was timed for Colonel Lindbergh's
hopoff with other members of the
Morrow family. The Post will
say that Lindbergh's failure to
use his regular landing field at
New York and'the secrecy veiling
his flight was due to the plot.
The Post will say that the im
personator of the Morrow girl fol
lowed the instructions in the last
letter Saturday and left a bundle
at the designated spot. Detectives
watched but no one came to claim
the package. The story will say
that the watch was being kept to
night in spite of the fact that the
authorities believed news of the
girl's flight to North Haven with
other members of her family
frightened the would be kidnap
pers. It will say that the guard about
the Morrow home is not to keep
curiosity seekers away from Col
onel Lindbergh and his fiance,
Miss Anne Morrow, but to protect
the 15 year old student.

About noon Lindbergh and the

In the late afternoon, the cou

take-off from the short field
which had been converted from
a sheep pasture.
