CREEL'S BUREAU TO
WON HE 15
The Committee on Public Informa
tion Trill cease to function on June
tl6, and en July 1 will so out of cx
'istence entirely, it "was learned here
Orders hare been issued to those
connected -with the foreign service
,of the committee to start for home
(not later than the former date. The
two "weeks betweenJune 35 and July
jl will be devoted to closing: up ac
. counts and '"gathering: up the loose
ends," it was stated.
Informal advices reaching Wash
itngton have indicated that President
JWIlson is loath to have the Goverh
itnent left without any publicity
President Fktotm Bureau.
He is eald to favor strongly the
temporary continuance of the Com
mittee on Public'Information in view
'of the fact that other governments
notably the British and French will
not cease to have similar organize
'tions sending national propaganda
However, the President is reported
to have confided in close friends that
he would not himself recommend that
'the committee be retained, in view of
the hostility that such a move would
'meet from the Republican Congress.
The committee, ever since its es
tablishment shortly after the United
States entered the world war, has
been a target for Republicans in
Congress, and there seemed little
likelihood that retention of the or-
I pranization would be sanctioned by
! that body now that it has passed
' into Republican control.
To Await Klnal I'eacc.
In iew of this situation, it was
said that the President is anxious to
have the foreign work of the commit
tee, at least until the peace confer-
1 ence is ended, taken ovcT"byan estab
, lishcd Government department.
The committee has handled muih of
the routine news coming out of aris,
such as official statements and set
speeches, thus obviating duplication
and relieving congestion on the al
ready overcrowded wires.
As the Navy Department, with its
radio stations, is about the only de
partment equipped to do work of this
sort, it is understood that efforts al
ready are being made to have Secre
tary Daniels place the facilities bfis
department at the disposal of th
Government, at least during the re
maining days pf the peace conference.

"This was. perhaps," the Secretary
observed, ' the first time that ensigns
and admirals and all officers of in
termediate grade were requested to
make suggestions of any character
that gave promise of helping to win
a naval victory The same invitation
stands, now that peace has come."
Backs Nation' League.
The Secretary also spoke warmly
for the league of nations.
"The war will have been fought in
vain." ho declared, "if 1920 finds the
world without a just and firm pur
pose and an international tribunal,
so that never will it be possible for
any Caesar to again bestride the
world or any man on horseback to
ride roughshod over the rights of,
nations, great or small.
"The day of isolation for America
has passed The ancients believed
the seas were made to separate na
tions. We havo learned that they
wero created to unite them in bonds
of friendship The close and Inti
mate association of men of the
American navy with the naval per
sonnel of allied countries has done
two things: cemented friendships
which will endure, and foreshadowed
international relations which will
preserve the peace of the world."

RITES TONIGHT FOR
PARIS. June 6. British and French
delegates, through American Inter
cession, were reported today to be
approaching an agreement on the de
gree of modification of the German
peace treaty. It was understood that
the changes in the terms probably
will result in some concessions by
both groups, the French receding
from their previous stand of oppos
ing all modifications with the British
agreeing to abandon most of the al
terations recently advocated by them.
The reply to the German counter
proposals, which will embody the
l roposed modifications, Is now ex
pected to be ready for presentation
early next week.
Meanwhile the Big Four's continued
refusal to publish the text of the
original treaty is resulting in em
barrassment to the American com
missioners, as the result of charges
by Senators Lodge and Borah that
copies are in the hands of certain
private interests in New York. This
embarrassment is increased by the
fact that it is reported copies in Ger
man, French, and English are avail
able at newsstands in Germany,
Switzerland, Holland, and in other
neutral countries. There is under
stood to be a strong feeling among
some members of the commission that
the text should be made immcdiatcly
available to the American people.
Funeral services will be held this
evening at 8 o'clock for Clarence
Weaver, sixty-five years old, at his
residence, 3206 East Capitol street.
The Rev. Harry Dawson Mitchell,
pastor of the Metropolitan M. E.
Church, will officiate. Mr. Weaver
died yesterday after an illness of five
Mr. Weaver had lived In Washing
ton over sixty years. For the past
twenty years he had been general
agent for tho United States Casualty
Company. He was a prominent Ma
son, belonging to the Washington
Commandery and Lafayette Lodge,
No. 19. He was also a member of tho
Maccabees and the Elks.
After the funeral services this
evening, the body will be taken to

CREPE STREAMERS EATEN,
MEDITATIVE GOAT BLAMED
CHICAGO. June 6. They Just can't
believe u of that groat.
He seems like such a thoughtful,
meditative goat, wagging his gray
beard and rolling his innocent eyes.
He doesn't look at all like the hard
f-nod character that would he stand
ing at the front door of the house of
a dead man and eating off the crepe
streamers and the green wreath
wirrs and all.
Yet the family of the late Joseph
Novak, of South Chicago, say that
the naid goat, the property of Thomas
Delancy, did stand and eat and munch
the crepe as charged.
They reported the matter to Lieut.
Michael Morrisey, and Lieutenant
Mike agrees with the owner that no
woll-brought-up goat, especially an
Irih goat, would do such a thing. It
must have been some other goat ,
probably a Bolshevik goat.
COAST BASEBALL STARS

LOS AXGELES, June 6. Every
baseball player an actor doing funny
gyrations before the movie camera
with the possibility of some of them
developing into high-class funmakers

Vernon club of the Pacific Coast
Baseball League. At least Fatty Ar
buckle, film star and recent purchaser
of the Vernon clifc, is making a move
in that direction. Arbuckle is work
ing on a baseball picture and the Ver
non players will be assigned to places
in the cast.
