Non-German Reparations The agreements for non-German Reparations were signed in

Paris on Tuesday evening. They are based on the settlement in principle made at the Hague, and relate chiefly to the debts of Hungary to her Central and Eastern European creditors, and to the long standing " optants " question. It is gratifying to learn that the new Bank of International Settlements is to be asked to act as trustee for the creditor Powers, thus giving the agreements as great a stability as possible.- * *
