London, July 30.-(By A.P.)-The
French experts to the inter-allied
conference were working today to
produce a formula which they prom-

they had previously offered and which
they said ought to be the long-sought
solution of the deadlock in the confer
ence on the question of security for
the Dawes plan loan to Germany.
At 4:30 o'clock this afternoon the
allied delegations were still awaiting
word from the French experts that
their proposal had been completed. It
was clear that nothing could be done
until the new formula was circulated.
Paris, July 30.-(By A.P.)-The rep-
aration commission is leaving for Lon-

subject of public controversy, are
laid down in detail in instructions

continental United States a mobiliza-

as an occasion for "assemblages and
