FIERY DEBATE ON DEBTS Dpi A. Senators Johnson, Robinson of Ind.; Robinson, Ark., Participate (Continued From Page One) volve Interruption of the agreement to yut German reparations was an example of the British "superiority complex." Citing Chamberlain's conditions to any debt settlement as cancelatlon or reduction or no Interference with the Lausanne reparations agreement, fohnson said: Scores Lausanne Pact "Tho Lausanno settlement was predicated upon the action of the United States concerning debts due us. They took an obligation uncol- leftable from Germany and of which we have nothing to do, and, with an appearance of altruism, they.say they are going to forgive Germany and collect only a small amount. "Then suddenly the lid blew off and we find that forgiving Germany was dependent upon the United States forgiving their debts. "That's the Lausanne agree- merit which, has been praised In no uncertain terms! That Is can- celation by the United States of debts to the extent that they can- eel reparations due from Germany." Johnson said he realized continuing statements that, tho United States Is going to receive this and that percentage of the debts were made "without authority," but he said ho •could not help resenting that the very suggestion should be made that we are •bargaining or huckstering on It." .» . «.
