OFFERS TO GIVE ALLIES COIN
BUT IN LESSER AMOUNTS THAN
EMBODIED IN RECENT MESSAGE
The Associated Press.
i'AIUS. April 20. Germany on next Wednesday or Thurs-
day ill propose to the allies a payment of .1000000 "gold marks
during a space of ten years. They w ill al.o pledge yearly pay-
ments equal to one-fifth of the value of German exports to the
allied countries during the proceeding year.
The offer HI be an answer to the allied ultimatum given the
other day. It is not expected that the offer will find acceptance.
According to the Temps in an article published today that
in order to realize part of the above pavments Germany will pro-
pose and international loan of 10000000 gold marks at an inter-
est rate not to exceed five per cent.
The Temps comments as follows:
"Berlin is convinced that the propositions will be rejected by
the allies but insists on presenting them publicly in the hope
that a certain part of the opinion abroad will consider them suffi-
cient to bring pressure to bear on the llies not to occupy the
