O)—Four men laced each other across a table in tie treasury department Thursday to determine what Great Britain shall pay the United States on its war debt of more than $4,000,000,000. Even deeper questions of monetary exchange and trade seem bound to enter the talks. Some observers tome the stabilization of the dollar and pound as a result of the conversations. Undersecretary of Treasury Acheson and Frederick Livesay, economic advisor of the state department, represent the United States. Sir Frederick Leith-Ross, economic advisor of the British government, and T. K. Bewley. British treasury expert, present the case for debt reduction. Sir Ronald Lindsay, British ambassador, is expected to "sit in" from time to time. In preparation for th;. debt conversations, Secretary of Treasury Woodin, Secretary of State Hull, Acheson and Undersecretary of State Phillips'met at the state department Wednesday night to formulate Ameriacn policy. They declined to discuss their conversation. •Two Billion* Paid The British,' who have paid more than $2,000,000,000 in principal and interest uince the Baldwin debt settlement of 1923, contend their burden is unbearable. British payments now total around $184.000,000 annually. Aside from some quiet talk about a 90 per cent reduction, the British have not stated officially how deep a cut in their debt they desire. The administration is convinced that congress will not approve an. excessive cut, and congress must ratify any debt agreement before it is valid. Concessions made to the British t>ribably will set" precedents tor the treatment of the 14 other debtors, or such of them as are granted reviews. British and American negotiators start miles apart The British, according to reliable reports, will open their first skirmish with a request for a 90 per cent reduction. They are expected to point out that this was the percentage of the cut applied to German reparations by the former Allies at the Lausanne conference in 1932. Scaled Down Reparations were scaled down from about $8,000,000,000 to a little more than $700,000,600 — and that conditional Great Britain and the other debtors, particularly France, long have maintained that war debts and reparations were connected — that they could (Continued on Page Two) Nevada Plans Paving, Water, Sewer Projects NEVADA—Funds for resurfacing of the Lincoln highway thru Nevada and the extension of water mains and sewers in the city are being sought by a committee of five men named by Nevada city council at a recent meeting.

The law, drafted by Dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels, minister of propaganda, .declares editors and members of editorial staffs of newspapers," periodicals and news agencies must uphold unreservedly the Tightness of the present regime. The section that became law Thursday ruled specifically that newspapers no longer were organs of free opinion but must be cjass- c I with the radio, theater and schools. Newspapers and periodicals comprise public institutions spiritually influencing the nation, the law said. This decree was followed by one prescribing the death penalty or alternatively 15 years' imprisonment for anyone who imported or disseminated periodicals classed as treasonable. The decree prescribed death also for anyone who plotted against the lives of judges, lawyers, policemen or other officials. The Goebbels press law was designed frankly to put newspapers In a new role, as part of Chancellor Adolf Hitler's tenet, that Germany must be a united nation, thinking as a unit, so the state may be strengthened and Germany's past glories restored. In some, ays it resembles the Italian Fas- cisi press laws. Former I. S. Student to . Lie at Arlington Lieut. Richard Booker, 23, son of Lieut. Col. P. "W.
