Revision From Young Plan

which binds reparations and war
debt discussions, recall events
which hare shaped the two since
the war. .
. The world's financial Indiges

original estimates of both, al
though the debts have been fixed
since the commission appointed to
negotiate them ended Its work in
Since then, however, the Toung
plan has succeeded) the , Dawes

with relief after the myriad dis
agreements attending such a con
ference were finally reconciled In
The United States was repre

ment took its name from one of
the American delegates. Owen D.

tions payments indefinite. They
rose under a sliding scale to more
than a half billion dollars in 1929
"30. By comparison the Young plan
substantially reduced the sum
due yearly from Germany for the
first years v of the arrangement.
It fixed the definite period of 68
years for payments and it lowered
the estimated total from " 332,-
000,000.000 to about 327,000.
000.000. Everybody seemed satisfied and
It was believed another era of
swelling bank accounts and smok
ing factory chimneys was just
ahead. . .
Germany's economic illness has
become alarming since. In addi
tion to the reparations burden,
she . has borrowed heavily from
foreign countries. Most of that
indebtedness is short term. '
The total private Investment of
foreigners In Germany has been
estimated at 35.000.000,000. Her
own investments abroad are small
in comparison. She has millions
i of unemployed. - Another gloomy
' factor is the decline In commodity
values and the corresponding rise
in the value of money.
Germany's recent' cry that her
burden Is intolerable has result
; ed In a flurry of conferences and
'President Hoover has. announced
i that steps are being considered to
In Germany and . elsewhere
abroad that arouses the hope or
fear as the case may be, that
there will be another : scaling
down of reparations. Immediately
war debts take their place fn the
scop of speculation. They are
linked in the same way as the
family budget and the family sal
ary. . -. .
