Nobody can doubt this who reads an article published on

Tuesday by the Hamburger Fremdenblatt. The sense of the article, which we imagine was officially sanctioned is that Germany has certain things to gain by joining in the Security Pact and certain things to lose by not doing so. As it was Germany herself who originally proposed the Pact this decision might, of course, have been expected, but the French had put so many glosses upon the original German plan that at one time it seemed probable that Germany would disown her own child. It now seems that Germany is ready to enter the League without stipulating in advance for any revision of the Peace Treaty. She would really, as we gather from the article in the Hamburger Fremdenblatt, rely on the clause in the Covenant which provides for the revision of treaties.
