It was up to him to persuade the British government to accept the proposal of President e ap-p- ;v V, Roosevelt that there be an International tariff truce pending the outcome of the world H. Davit economic confer- ence in London. This he accomplished, according to an announcement by Prime Minister MacDon-alin the house of commons, although Great Britain made Important reservations providing that the trade pacts now being negotiated by Britain should not be affected. The test of the agreement between Davis and MacDonald was cabled to Washington for the final approval of the American government, which was promptly given. France, Italy and Belgium have accepted the tariff truce, the two former stipulating that it be based on the present dollar valuation and that a superduty can be Imposed If the dollar depreciates further. Favorable responses were expected in Washington from Japan, Germany, Holland and China. N. d PRIME MINISTER to MAC DONALD parliament also took up the subject of war debts and world disarmament, throwing considerable light on the negotiations between his government and President Roosevelt. He declared that the world ecospeech nomic conference cannot be fully successful unless the war debt difficulties have been removed before It comes to an end. He said that on this "there Is complete union of opinion." The premier asked parliament to hush up discussion of this question and not ask embarrassing questions concerning his with the United negotiations States. He said that If the world disarmament conference was to come to anything like a satisfactory the United States would have to take part In a consultative pact, "the effect of which would be to Increase the security of European nations and the safety of threatened nations against war." The United States, be said, had so agreed and an announcement would be made In Washington to effect. President Roosevelt presumably agrees with MacDonald concerning the necessity of settling the war debts. He sent to congress a message asking that he be given authority to deal with the other nations In settling the debt issue, at of least temporarily. Secretary State Hull admitted that the debt matter would be taken up concurrently with the Issues before the economic conference, but both he and MacDonald insisted It would not form part of the conference MacDonald said the discussion. June 15 due date on debts was "an awkward hurdle" and asked parliament not to make it harder to surmount by premature debate. France hopes for a moratorium or its equivalent on the payment It owes June 15, and the cabinet confirmed Its decision not to pay the nineteen million odd defaulted In December unless It is granted, rejecting Ilerriot's proposal that the debt interest due be paid Immediately. In Washington It was said soon that the administration felt strongly that no consideration should be given France on the June 15 payment unless she first paid up the sum that was due in December. In his message to congress President Roosevelt also asked for a grant of blanket power to negotiate tariff revisions so he can carry out his program for stimulating world trade by breaking down high tariff barriers. back to the matter of we again find Norman Dav'ts active. lie had a long talk In London with Dr. Alfred Rosenborg, who Is Chancellor ITitler's chief adviser In foreign affairs, and Is said to have told him flatly that the United States la utterly opposed to any Increase In armaments by anyone, and that America regards Germany's present policy of demanding a larger army as an obstacle to the success of the disarmament conference.
