Feels that Only with German Finances
Sound Will She Reach Desired
Capacity to Pay
Paris, Jan. 14.-BrIgadier General
Charles G. Dawes, U. S. A. chairman
of the first committee of experts ap-
pointed by the Reparations commis-
sion to consider the resources and
capacity of Germany, 'looking to a so-
lution of the reparations problem, de-
livered a straightforward, hard hit-
ting speech at the opening of that
body today.
With characteristic forcefulness
General Dawes denounced "the in
cessant misrepi-eeenataons and in--
tolerable interjections of those foul
and carrion living vultures--the na-
tionalistic demogagues of all coun-
tries-who would exploit their pitiful
personalities out of a common mis-
American Plan
The American plan, as briefly out-
li1ned by thle chairman, consists of
stabilization of German currency and
balancing the German budget and he
"As the economic processes of
Germany under a stable currency and
with a balanced budget are revived
there will be demonstrated the ca-
pacity of Germany to pay. Let us first
help Germany to get well."
The impression made by General
Dawes' speech was in every way fav-
orable, inside and outside of repara-
tion circles, excepting in extreme na-
tionalist quarters, where his refer-
ence to "nationalistic demogagues"
caused some slight emotion.
In his speech general Dawes ask-
ed: "What is the question of today?
Upon what does the success, of this
committee depend?" ,
Repeat Epigran
"It depends chiefly, aupon whetler
in the publr mind. and conscien'ce'
of the allies and of the world there
is an adequate conception of the
great disaster which faces each
ally in Europe uless common sense
is crowned king."I
This was the part of his speech
most commented upon. A French de-
legate compared this pronouncement
with the epigram voiced at the sign-
I ing of the American Declaration. of
Independence, "If we don't hang to-
gether we shall hang separately."
It is understood that the committee
hopes by holding three sessions daily
to reach a point where it can leave
for Berlin Saturday.
After a three and a half hour ses-
sion this afternoon the meeting ad-
journed until tomorrow at ten o'clock.
The committee adopted a resolution
providing th.t the records of the pro-
ceedings be kept absolutely confi-
dential. The secretary alone is au-
thorized to give out statements when
approved by the members. The ex-
perts themselves have been pledged
to give no interviews.

Raising Of Lid From Huge Quartz
Coffin Will Be Delicate Oper-
ation In Confined Space
Luxor, Egypt, Jan. 14.-Fully three
weeks, perhaps months, must elaspe
before the shrine in the tomb of Tut-
ankhamen can be dismantled and the
pharaoh's sarcophagus reached. How-
ard Carter, in charge of the work,
made this known today, saying it was
possible that the joinery of the shrine
might compel him to alter the scaf-
folding and the whole plan of dis-
mantling operations.
The raising of the lid of this im-
mense quartz coffin, which Mr. Car-
ter estimates may weigh a ton or
two, will be an operation of the great-
est delicacy in the confined space in
Swhich the excavators mustr work.
Mr. Carter describes the sarcophagus
as very large and long.
The protective goddesses on each
corner are executed in high relief
with arms estended around either
side. The removal of the roof of the
outer canopy enabled a better view
to be obtained of the mural paintings,
disclosing the fact thatapes are de-
-pited on tile wall at the foot of the
shrine ,recalling similar mural paint-
ings on the tomb of Tutankhamen's
successor who decorated his prede-
cessors tomb as shown by his image
on one of the walls.
Lecture, Eighth On Oratorical Course,
Will Be Illustrated By I
Moving Pictures
King Tutankhamen and the costly
1 treasures which have long remained
buried in Egypt will be discussed and
illustrated at 8 o'clock tomorrow night
when Arthur Weigall, noted Egyptol-
ogist, will deliver .his lecture, "The
Recent Discoveries in Upper Egypt"
in Hill auditorium. .This illustrated
talk by the Inspector-General of An-
tiquities of the Egyptian government
will be given as the eighth number
on the Oratorical lecture course pro-
gram for this year.
Mr. Weigal is consideredtas one of
the greatest authorities on the Egypt-
ian discoveries. He was present at
the opening of the tomb of Tutank-
hamen as special correspondent for
the London Daily Mail and the North
American newspaper alliance.
In his lecture he will tell of his
personal connection with the locating,
excavating, and opening of the tomb
of, Tutankhamen, as well as some-
thing of the lives and times of the
