Not to Be Party
to Dawes Plan
President Opposed to Official
Participation in Repara
tions Settlement; Middle
Course to Be Steered.
Washington, April 8.—President
Coolidge will not permit the United
States to officially become a party
to the Dawei reparations settlement
This statement was made for the
president at the close of the meeting
w ith his cabinet today.
While the administration Is watch
ing the developments with keen In
terest, and Is, of course, hopeful that
it will result In an adjustment of the
world’s economic ills. It will remain
on the outside, it was stated. For the
president it was said that he would
have no comment to make at this
time and it la probable he will never
express an opinion.
This attitude emphasized the ex
traordinary precautions which have
been taken by the State department
to prevent the Impression getting
abroad that the Dawes commission
was working under Instructions from
the United States.
At the same time the government
has to be extremely cautious on the
other aids of the question. It was
pointed out that it would be equally
as harmful to American Interests
should there be an Impression that
the United States is trying to ob
struct or disapprove of the proposal.
In view of this peculiar situation,
the most neutral course conceivable
will be followed, It was stated, but
one which, at the same time, must
take Into consideration the vast in
terest which the United States has in
any European financial arrangements

their repetition has convinced the
country you oppose this bill.
