THE DAWES REPORT ON GERMAN

REPARATION PAYMENTS

By GEORGE A. FINCH (Reprinted from The American Journal of International Law

Vol. 18, Number 3, July, 1924)

a

The completion and transmission to the Reparation Commission on April 9 last of the report of the expert committees appointed by it to “consider the means of balancing the budget and the measures to be taken to stabilize the currency" of Germany and to “consider the means of estimating the amount of German exported capital and of bringing it back to Germany" mark a further step in the efforts of the Allied Governments to give practical effect to the reparation clauses imposed upon Germany by the treaty of peace signed at Versailles on June 28, 1919.

The report of the first committee has attracted especial interest in the United States because the American members, although not representatives of the Government of the United States, accepted the appointments from the Reparation Commission with the expressed approval of the State Department. Interest in the report has further been increased by the recent action of the Republican National Convention which nominated General Dawes, the chairman of the first committee, for the office of VicePresident of the United States on the Republican ticket with President Coolidge. A summary of the reports with a brief setting of facts showing their relation to the general subject may, therefore, be useful.

The events directly leading up to these reports may be 1 See press notice of the State Department, Dec. 12, 1923.
