The treaties, though not Vet complet

ture naturally will be the definition of
boundaries. This will officially estab

the two republic of Czechoslovakia and
Jugo Slovakia. No doubt will tc allow

Paris. Mar 12. Belgium has
issued an official protest to the
allies against the plan of the
German republic to use Bel
gium's national colors, for its

The Germans wished to re

white and black with the old
federation flag of red, gold and
black. Gold is not practical for
a flag, go yellow was suhsttiuted
making it coincide with Bel
