Situation Serious
Despite the unanimity of national
sentiment which is being vouchsafed
the government, the situation grow-
ing out of the presence of the armed
French forces in parts of Germany, is
considered a very serious one, and
nothing is suggested as to what line
of further action is at the govern-
ment's disposal.
The feeling in political circles in
this connection 'was reflected in an
expi'ession by a well known demo-
cratic leader, who said tonight: '
- "Germany has arrived at the en.
trance to a dark, a very dark tunnel".
He referred not only to possible reac-
tion from Paris to'the German's ofii-
cial attitude, the German government
considering the treaty of Versailles
advocated, but he was of the opinion
that internal situation was frought
with girave danger.
Emergency Economic Measures
"Just now the government is giving
serious consideration to the adoption
of emergency economic measures cal-
culated to meet the sudden turn in the
situation throughout Germany, with-
out anticipating diplomatic and for-
eign economic ratifications, which:
