Germans Will Follow Route
Which The y Marched
in 1914. Will Be Given
10 Days to Sign.
(Special United Press Wire.)
Pau'is, Aplril 16.--The German
peace delegation has been officially
ordered to proceed to Versatilles on
April 25, it is learned. They will
follow the rolte over which they
marched to the gates of Paris in
1914. They will not enter Paris
but will be forced to skirt the city,
proceeding directly to their quarters
in Versailles. The Gerinmals to the
number of 175 will arrive in Cologne
where they will take a special train.
They will be whirled toward Ver
sailles, through scenes of devasta
tion wrought by Gernan lands,
possibly under direction of some
minor officials of the party. The
strictest precautions will be taken
to plrevent the Cermans fronl stray
ing into Paris from Versailles lest
some "unfortunate accident" might
occur. They will be met in Trianon 1
Palace hotel. There Cleinenceau
will read them the text of the treaty
and will probably announce the
time allowed for acceptance, bring
ing the actual crucial day down to
abiout May 10.
