Some newspapers commenting on llanfczau's speech at Versailles when the peace terms were presented to the German delegates, declare that though it was subdued in tone, it contained a emrit of defiance and impudence. It pointed out that Germany's territorial losses in Europe, by the terms of the Treaty are less serious than appear 'v- - ■ ' '
because, with the exception of tin: Saai 1 Valley -Briey region, no important industrial sections have been taken from, the Teutons.
The "New York Times" says:Rantzau gave the first sign that Germans realises to .some degree her guilt and responsibility' for the war, but the world^will. not be satisfied, because he is unwilling to admit Germany was 'the only nation' which plunged the world ihto"war. '
