Imminent steps by the approaching administra tion on the complicated schema of war debts, world economics, tar- iff and disarmament were believed to be foreshadowed.

The president-elect himself spoke lightly of tomorrow's meeting. saying it concerned things In general end no specific subject In particular. Surrounding him for the trip to Washington were hla most inti mate advisers men well informed on the international debts situa tion. Davie In Party Norman H. Davis, former democratic under-secretary of state who naa an order from both adminls ration to help prepare tha agenda for the forthcoming economic parley, was going to Washington with Mr.
