WELLINGTON, April 15
Arrangements have now been completed for the departure from New Zealand of the interned Germans, whose repatriation was ordered some months ago. There are 100 of these men, comprising captured naval men, some officials, and a few German civilians, who have expressed a wish to be returned to their own country. The Germans will probably leave New Zealand before tlie end of this month. They are to proceed to '"Germany, via Australia, and it is understood that they will accompany a large body of Germans now interned in the Commonwealth. The Australian Government, like the New .Zealand Government, has been anxious to get rid of its prisoners, but has been hampered in making arrangements by the shortage of ships.
