(Received April 11, 2 p.m.) i LONDON, April 9. The "Morning Post's" Vienna correspondent states that General Smuts' note to the Hungarian Government proposed a new line as the eastern limit for Hungarian troops, adding that the Roumanians would be required to stand still, making a neutral zone between the, two armies, which would be occupied by troops of the four leading Entente Powers. _ . General Smuts promised the. arrangement would not prejudice Hungary's territorial claims at the peace settlement, and its acceptance would undoubtedly lead to raising of the blockade. The Hungarian Government replied •that it would only accept, under order, the suggestion of a -limit much farther eastward, as defined by the November armistice, and also the Soviet's rule in the neutral "zone must be unimpaired. It concluded by denouncing a solution of territorial questions according to Imperialistic conquests.
