But when the leading textile manufacturer of Saxony shoots himself because he cannot pay his debts, as one did shoot himself, you may be assured that the question was a very practical one for him.

"American capital investment in Germany will be safer under a National Socialist regime than under any other government' Hitler declared. "For four reasons: First, because only under a National Socialist government will Germany be freed from political debts which today make it impossible for us to meet our private obligations. Second, because only under a National Socialist government will it be possible to reach a stable relationship with France. Third, because under a National Socialist government Germany will refuse to enter into any agreements that she cannot fulfill.

Heber Dithrich. In a decision handed down yesterday in common pleas court, dismissed the appeal of the Labor Products and Ice Company, Brackenridge, from an order of the Pennsylvania alcohol permit board of last September 30, revoking a permit to the company of last April 7, to manufacture, reuse, store or aell at wholesale, alcohol produced in the process of operating its cereal beverage plant. The permit had been revoked on the alleged ground that last June a number of barrels of unlabeled beer containing more than half of 1 per cent alcohol were loaded on trucks at the plant and that a large quantity of the beer was on the premises. The board also ordered forfeiture of the company's bond to the state. The greatest January In its history was reported by the Edward A.

The will to pay our private debts is equally strong and unshakable among all Germans, with the sole exception of our Bolsheviks. "But in considering the question of repayment of our debt to America we must make sharp differentiation between the capital of that debt, the interest on it and the amortization of It. I assure you that nobody shall touch the capital. Every pfennig of it will be repaid. But the question of how it will be repaid is one that depend upon our capacity to pay. These loans were forced upon Germany by the existence of reparations. The necessity of paying our political debts forced us to assume these private obligations. We borrowed money to pay reparations. Thus it is true that at least 75 per cent of the loans are in the form of postponed reparations. That was the great danger that lay in our taking these foreign loans.
