a promise of President Wilson, which
at the time it was made was so im-

The Treasury Secretary who is the

commissioners and President Coolidge
in agreeing to the rate of interests on
all Belgium borrowed from the United
States during the war. Mr. Mellon
said the pledge of President Wilson
was made at a time when Belgium was
about to withdraw from the peace ne
gotiations, and that Secretary Hoover,
a member both of the Versailles con
ference and the debt commission, tes
tified during the debt discussions here
that the influence of Mr. Wilson's
promise on the peace settlement was

An autopsy of the body conducted
