a spirited debate in the house of
commons tonight -on the merits and
demerits of the Singapore naval
treaty, the government obtained a

Think Germans Want French to Re-
tu5n Confiscated Gold and Silver
Paris, July 19--(By A.P.)-The Ger-
man government, through its embassy
in London, is striving to have the
forthcoming British note on repara-
tions convey to the French govern-
ment Germany's willingness to cease
passive resistance in the Ruhr, sub-
ject to certain concessions on the part
This information has reached the
French government on what is re-
garded as unquestionable, but unoffi-
cial authority. These concessions ap-
pear to include:
1. Withdrawal of the Franco-Bel-
gian troops of occupation with the
exception of a mere skeleton military
force which would in the diplomatic
sense be "invisible".,
2. Permission for the German offi-
cials and functionaries expelled from
the Ruhr to return to their posts re-
storing the local administration of all
civi services as it existed before Jan.
11 when the occupation took place.
3. That the French government
agree to restore the currency it con-
Are Not Acceptable
These conditions, it is declared here,
would be unacceptable to the French
government because they are unac-
companied by any, definite assurances
or guarantees that reparation pay-
ments would be forthcoming.
Likewise .it is explained the French
government feels that since France is
enforcing the peace treaty and Ger-
many is refusing to execute it, it
would not be equitable that Germany
shou'ld impose conditions instead of
yielding to the French demands.
Germany, it is asserted, first must
cease her passive resistance, after
which the French government would
be disposed on its own account fav-
orably to consider Germany's views,
whereas it could not receive them in
the nature ,of ultimatum. The Brit-
ish government, it is said already is
aware of the French ministry's feel-
ing on this subject.

"Where Health and Religion Meet,"
will be the subject of the lecture giv-
en by Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, of the'

noon at 5 o'clock.

tion which has always existed be-
tween man's notions of disease and
man's notions of religious thought.
These tendencies will be traced back
to their supposed origin- with prim-
itive man. He will also point out the
common interests or meeting place of
religion and health, and the position
of these interests in the future time
will be discussed.

Order British Immigrants Admitted
New York, July 19.-(By A. P.) -
Imrmigration Commissioner Curren
was instructed from Washington to-
day to admit 521 British subjects who
arrived on the .steamship "Baltic" to
the United States under a special "re-
bate quota." The immigrants were
detained after the British quota of 15,-

London, July 19-(By A.P.)-Lord
Curon is experiencing more ?difficulty
in the preparation of the note to Ger-
many than has been expected. It is
now reported that the note and the
cover letter is not to be despatched
to the Allies until next week, but
whether the trouble has arisen from
political friction in the Cabinet as al-
leged in some quarters or is simply
from the inherent difficulties of fram-
ing a reply to Germany which would
not offend&.France, it is not evident.
Baldwin in Conference
After today's long cabinet council
the Foreign Secretary had a confer-
ence with Premier Baldwin. This con-
ference prevented Lord Curzon from

It is believed, although nothing is
known officially, that Curzon is mak-
ing the greatest effort to find a way
to compromise on the question of pas--
sive resistance in the Ruhr. He has
had. conversation with the German
ambassador, the latest of which was
yesterday, probably with the idea of
finding how fair the German govern-
nment might be willing to recede from
the support of the passive resistance
movement provided France could be
induced to 'revert to merely civil oc-
cupation of the Ruhr.
