WASHINGTON, Nov. 13.-(AP)-
The German government today or-
dered German warships not to inter-
fere with the 6ity of Flint on its way
back to the United States.
Alexander C. K i r k, American
charge d'affaires in Berlin, was in-
formed by the Reich Foreign Office

An official of the State Depart-

mand of the German prize crew, to'
take all necessary measures to avoid
injuryto the American crew.

of a determination on the part of any
American republic to undertake to
exercise force in order to procure ob-
servance of its term."
