Considerably less food was held
lin the cold storage plants of the
State under State supervision In

ago with the exception of eggs
which are going into storage slight

Americans Believe the Total
Amount of Bill Will Not
Be Collected
By Associated Press.
Paris, April 12.—While the mem
bers of the British and French par
liament are mobilizing for a pro
posal to exact nothing less than full
indemnification of the Allies by Ger
many for all the costs of the war
and are insisting on Germany's abil
ity to pay the full bill, the Amer
ican representatives on the repara
tions commission express considera
ble doubt whether even the account
to be presented to Germany under
the plan adopted by the Council of
Four (estimated at about $45,000,-
000,000, with the payment spread
over a period of thirty years), can
or will be collected in full.
They assert that they can see the
possibility that the ways and means
of holding Germany to payment will
grow weaker as the years pass and
that Germany may take advantago
of some convenient opportunity in
later years to repudiate her obliga
tions to the present allied powers
under the peace treaty.
For this reason the American and
other delegates on the reparations
commission have opposed a now pro
posal which the French brought in
to Specify labor and other requisi
tions for the restoration of the de
vastated French provinces in the
first few years after peace, maintain
ing that this revived the principle
of priority as between the various
creditors of Germany which had
been rejected by the commission and
the Council of Four.
They argued that France in this
way might receive disproportionately
a large share of her claims in the
first years while the ability of the
associated governments to enforce
payments was still good and that
other states dependent upon later
payments in money and materials
might be left "holding the bag" if
Germany proved recalcitrant.
The difficulty probably will be met
by the French offer to account to
the other countries for the cash
value of labor, materials, cattle and
other things exacted for the restora
tion of the nine northern provinces.
Germany, although her prisoners
will be released at the end of the
armistice, probably will lie required
in the peace settlement to provide
a part of the labor needed for re
building of devastated regions as
well as labor at home in the manu
facture or production of materials
to be used in restoration work.
