Boats Operated by Shipping
Board to Go Back Un
tvnaliliiKtoii, Feb. S.—Dutch ships
requisitioned by the American Gov

operated by the shipping board will
be unconditionally returned to Hol

ipresent voyages. This announcement
Is made by the War Trade Board,
which has reached an agreement on
the subject with the shipping board.
The Dutch ships were seized in
American ports, last March 20 by or
der of P-esident Wilson, acting in the
war emergency. There were 87 of,
the vessels with an aggregate of
639,000 deadweight tons, but several
of them were destroyed by enemy ac

the United States.
Under the agreement reached with
the Dutch ship owners vessels de
stroyed were to be replaced by money
or by ships at option of the Dutch
owners, and liberal rates for the use
of the vessels were allowed. There
was no information today as to the
exact number of the ships that had
been lost or whether payment would
be in money or In American tonnage.
