Some >f his most intimate advisers on this subject are discussing a postponement of payments by Oreslt Britain, the first country invited to dis- uss the debts question, for the period of the depression as a means of obtaining quick ac'tlon on the Roosevelt trade policies. <- Roosevelt Silent The president-elect niraself, hovr- evor, has given no public expression to his ideas of handling the problems. In return for debts relief, It is understood that Mr. Roosevelt wants to obtain from the economic conference stabilization of world money exchanges and reciprocal tariff agreements which he believes would go a long way In again opening the avenues of trade. Fully confident of his ability to deal with European debtors, the Incoming chief executive him no Idea of appointing a commission. He will rely entirely on himself and his secretary of state and personal assistants. The Rooseveltlan thought in this direction was outlined definitely In his campaign, he s'ald. ' -/ Confidence In U. S. "We may not have," he said, "the astuteness 'In' aorte'-forms',of -interna'" tlonal diplomacy that our more eipo- rlenced European friends haver but when It comes'to good old-fashioned barter and trade-—whether It be goods or tariff—my money Is on the American. There can not and shall not be any foreign dictation of our tariff policies." There was no amplification today by Mr. Roosevelt of his conference yesterday with President Hoover, at which It was arranged for the state department to notify Great Britain of a willingness by the president-elect to receive envoys early. In March to discuss war debts and the economic conference. • There is every belief among his friends that other foreign powers will follow the line taken by'Great Britain and send representations on the same subjects. .' Deal Separately But the president-elect Intends to deal separately with each, nation on the debts problem. Apparently anticipating new moves In the debt field, Mr. Roosevelt Informed Mr. Hoover yesterday that if any occasion arises requiring another meeting he would be glad to call at the White House upon his return from the south In mid-February. - British Premier Expected to Be Chairman of Debt Commission By W. G. QUISENBERRY (United PrcH Leaned Wire) 1X3NDON, Jan. 31.—The British debt mission to the lUnlted States will be leaded by Prlrtie Minster J. Ramsay MaeDonald, well Informed 'political quartern believed today. MaeDonald Is credited with personally achieving 3ie settlement reached at the Lausanne reparations conference, nnd Is expected to lead efforts to finish "the other half of the Job.'! The prime minister regards the debt question as the outstanding problem of Britain. He wants to give his personal atten- :lon as much, as possible, to efforts to reach a debt settlement. The stock exchange opening' was cheerful In view of the United States' willingness to discuss war debts. Trading was limited due to the weekend lull. British gilt-edged -securities opened from 1-16 to 1-8 higher. Chamberlain Alio Chancellor of the Exchequer Neville Chamberlain was expected to be a member of the mission, although he will be busy on' his budget In March and April. The financial year ends April 31, and the budget Is usually Introduced .In the first or second fortnight of May. Stanley Baldwin was mentioned as a possible member of tho mission. He negotiated the original debt funding agreement with the United. States. Politicians believed-he would be left out, however, because his inclusion would be certain to start a controversy here.

Powered by a Joint agreement between President Hoover and his successor-elect. Franklin D. Roosevelt, the turning wheels opened the way for the appointment of a British'mis- sion to meet American representatives here soon after March 1 for a prompt attack on the stumbling block of International obligations. Within a few hours after the incoming and outgoing chief executives had decided upon diplomatic channels—advocated by Mr. Roosevelt—as the avenue for an approach to the problem, Secretary Stlmson summoned the English ambassador, Sir Ronald Lindsay, and. informed him of the Agreement reached yesterday afternoon by the two leaders.
