today by a visit to the treasury of
Baron de Martine, the Italian ambas-
sador who talked over the old sub-
ject of the Italian obligation of $2,-
138, 543,000.
While the conference was devoid of
concrete results it marked the first
steps by Italy with respect to her'
debt and initiated conversation which
treasury officials hope will proceed'
into actual negotiations of funding
terms. The Ambassador conferred an
hour and a half with Secretary Mel-,
Ion and under-secretary Winston}
chairman and secretary respectively
of the American Debt commission.
Baron de Martine's mission was un-
derstood to have been largely for the
purpose of ascertaining Mr. Mellon's
views and there was a frank discus-
sion of the problem faced by the Ital-
ian government and the laws which
define for the American admistration
the terms which, it can accept from
its foreign debtors. The ambassador
was said to have eliminated at the
outset any thought that may have
rested with officials that Italy'sl
move hinged on the action of France.
Paris, May 26, (By A.P.)-The
policy of the United States respecting
the war debts and the attitude of the
United States Senate towards the
guarantee pact signed by President
Wilson in 1919 received a stout de-
fense in the French Senate today.
A charge by Senator Gourju that
certain American politicians who hel
said threatened France with theirI
cannon while they left her without'
the security founded by President!
Wilson, drew from M. Briand, the i
foreign misister, the statement that i
there were no grounds for question-
ing the propriety of the United States
Senate on the guarantee treaty. He
recalled that those engaged in thej
peace negotiations were made well
aware that the Senate could not be
expected to ratify such a document.
M. Briand again interVeend in the
debate to approve the remark of Gen-
eral Taufflied, of Alsace who said
that France must follow the, example
of Great Britain and fund its debts
to the United States without delayI
and he added; "serious conversations
to that end have already begun."
