Blockade Section of Sup reme

Off Enemy Supplies.
Terms To Be Submitted To Germans Tomorrow After
noon At 3 O'CIock. Italian Delegates, Now Speeding
To Paris, To Be Among Allied Representatives.
Thirteen Nations Besides Germany To Have Envoys
In Attendance. Correspondents Admitted.
By Ed L. Keen
(United Press Staff Correspondent)
Paris, May G. The Germans must sign the
treaty or face economic isolation.
This was made plain today when the blockade section
of the supreme economic council was instructed to draw
ud Dlans for economic isolation of Germany to be put
into effect if the enemy attempts to carry out its threat to
refuse the peace terms,
Recent United Press dispatches from
Berlin have indicated the confidence of
the Germans in their ability to ovndc
the terms of the treaty was basco on
the belief that public opinion ia allied
countries would not permit further mili
tary action against Germany. Today's,
developments showed the allies will not
depend on the direct action of 'anus, but
the indirect action of an iron bound
blockade to enforce the treaty.
Hun Situation Critical.
Information from various Germun
sources. Indicates the country is in a
crious condition financial.v, lnnustnal
ty and politically. Allied commercial
and financial aid is needed to restore
industrial conditions to normal. The
allies have been sending largo quanti
ties of food into Germany for- ime
time.
Sudden re-estnblishment of tho econo
mic blockade possibly more rigorous
even than during the war, would forco
the Germans into quick submission, it is
believed. As an indication, however,
that thc blockade will be renewed Only
as a lust resort, it was simultaneously
announced today that pending accept
ance or refusal of the treaty certain fi
nancial restrictions on Germany, will be
further relaxed.
Italians Reinstated.
The final step toward full restoration
of Italy's rights in the pence confer
ence was taken this morning hen thc
credentials of her delegates wuic sub

the very fact that Richard declined ta
