J Until late in the evening, I however, those in Lloyd George's confidence believed that following the precedent of the, Salisbury administtation, - Lloyd George himself would take the post of foreign secretary. Lord Northcliffe, who has disavowed any intention of entering the cabinet, said in an interview with the Associated Press this evening: "I strongly urged Lloyd George to take the foreign secretaryship. I consider he Is eminently fitted for the responsibilities centered there, particularly in view of his knowledge of America and his sympathetic feeling for the American people and institutions. ' Through with Unpor3ted Men. "We are through with those know little of America or foreign conditions in general, and Lloyd George is the one man available, having in an eminitit degree the qualities needed, in handling the foreign situation. arn hopeful he will see his way to accepting this view." 1 4 The annotuicement in the Court Circular tonight-Ahat ha 110 AccoptecIi444,,w rot Of grime minister iiiirltrioalotert-eit-the's treasuryseems to' show that -Lloyd George has no present intention of tak; ing the foreign portfolio, and this apparently leaves the field to Lord Curzon.
