who has disavowed any Intention of

"I strongly urrcod Mr, Lloyd George
t. take the Foreign Secretaryship. I
eonalder that he Is oirlnently nttcd for
the responsibilities centred there, par
ticularly In view of his knowledge of
America nnd his sympathetic feeling for
the American peoplo and Institutions.
We are through with those who knew

one man available. Inn Ins In an eminent

London.. Dec. 7. "The fall of Bucha

Apart from the nntl-aovernment criti

In the prestige of the central Powers.

One editorial says: "It Is Indisputable
that tho Entente co'.'ectlvely has suffered
a disaster defying bellttlement"
