' Wellington. April 8, The highly
advertised economic conference of 31
nation, which it acheduled to meet
thorily in Geona, foredoomed to
failure, according to the well-nigh
unauimoii opinion held by oflicial
of the American government, who
are familiar with the event leading
up to the parley,

Seldom has , ropoal ol one

down by another in such blunt lan

sending: polite regrets, the United
States went to the lenRtli of calling
world attention to the emptines of
the project and, by inference at least,
stated that the whole undertaking

Scheming and Conniving for Credit.
Back of the curt American note
lies a considerable background of in
ternational bickering, scheming, con
niving and planning, all politico-commercial
in character, and aimed at
re-establishing eastern Europe's abil
ity to buy on credit. It was the
realization that these facts formed
the background for the conference
that caused the United States so
bluntly to decline the invitation to
To put the matter boldly, and
stripped of all pretense, American of
ficials consider the Genoa conference
an ambitious, scheme engineered by
the astute Lloyd George to open tip
the vast markets of Russia and east
ern Europe to British manufactured
goods through some sort of a sys
tem of international credits, the bur
den of which would he borne by
Great Britain and the United States
as the only two nations in the world
financially able to support such a
project. British trade being some
3,000 miles nearer the markets, it
would naturally dominate the field.'
Italy, being dependent upon Great
Britain for vitally essential coal, and
being heavily in its debt, lent itself
to the scheme as a natural ally.
France, casting yearning eyes it
self on the markets of Europe and
remembering the 30,000,000,000 of
francs sunk in Russia, is distrustful
so much so that it plainly stipu
lated that the. Genoa conference is
not to attempt to deal with repara
tions or change existing treaties and
agreements under all of which
French interests are fairly well se
cured. Economic Position at Stake.
The economic position of Great
Britain, then, rather than the eco
nomic position of the world general
ly, lies in the background of the
project. And while the administra
tion lias only the kindliest considera
tion and sympathy for the British
predicament, this sympathy does not
go to the extent of being willing to
further British trade at the expense
of-America's own somewhat stagnant
industry. Nor docs it go to the ex
tent of being willing to undertake
till further financing for a Europe
that owes us $11,000,000,000, a Eu-
ope that manifests no hurry about
paying, and tnat manitests little in
clination lo disarm and go to work.

Ever since you came to Omaha as General Manager of the

You are a public-spirited man and have done much for Omaha and
Ak-Sar-Ben,'but we expect still more from you..
You have "pep" and "pride," two qualities that go far to keep one
young, so cling to them, Buck, and remember we are all FOR you,
as you are for us ALL.
Any time you fieed your dress suit pressed quickly just call
