Red Cross Chapters Must Report.
The American lied Cross has com
pleted plans for obtaining frequent
standardized reports from all of its
2,600 chapters as to their financial
transactions and membership, says a
letter from the national headquarters.
Under the new system of decentral
ized administration recently adopted
under the direction of Harvey D. Gib
son, general manager of the Red
Cross, the chapters will report in de
tail every month to the thirteen di
vision managers, who in turn will
summarize the records of their re
spective divisions and report to na
tional headquarters. All of the work
formerly handled by the Bureau of
Membership at Washington will now
be divided between these thirteen di
vision headquarters, at each of which
a prominent business man, volunteer
ing his sen ice, is in charge.
Assembly Dance Crowd to He Limited.
The management of the Daniel
Boone Tavern announced today that
the number of couples to be allowed

sembly dances would be limited to
seventy-five. The number attending
last week's dance was perhaps the
largest in the history of University
assemblies. The new cafe at the tav

answer will not in any case be regard
ed as having any influence upon the
situation beyond possibly indicating
what is the internal political situation
in Germany today. Even should the
answer contain the large measure of
political restitution to Belgium fore
shadowed by a certain section of the
German press, this will not draw from
the Allies anything in the nature of a
response which could be interpreted
as a step toward peace. One might
go still further, to judge by the best
opinion, and they say that even should
Germany offer a settlement in France
as well which would in itself be ac
ceptable to the Allies for instance on
the basis of the dis-annexation of
Alsace Lorraine it would only be re
garded as an attempt to cause dis
sension among the Allies.
It is not expected that the German
answer of today will Include any such
strong bids for peace talk, but there is
little doubt that, having taken what
ever length of a step in that direction
the answer may be, the German gov
ernment will before long be forced to
go to greater lengths in the only war
policy no iv open to it. These are the
more straightforward peace intrigues
anticipated in my cable of August 24th,
and, as between a German debacle andj
a gradual approach to surrender such I
as these indicate, the latter still ,
seems to be the more probable course;
of events. j
The reasons for not accepting any
steps of this kind as a basis for
negotiations, may seem obvious to a!
people naturally disposed to let Ger-'
many wait until they have tried their '
own steel upon her. It may be inter
esting, however, to know just why,
here in London," a settlement on the

western front would not be considered
a basis for negotiations.
In the first place complete victory is
generally believed to be In sight In
England and France there Is absolute
assurance that this will come with the
aid of American arms and perhaps be
fore. But a new aspect of the situation
is presented by conditions on the
eastern front. Here Germany holds
the greatest extent of her conquered
territory. To accept a western settle
ment, without complete restritutlon of
this territory to the Russian and
Polish democracies, would virtually
'mean that Eneland and Frnni-p worn
betraying Russia, now, of all coun
tries in the world the one in which it
is our most serious duty to aid in
making the world safe for democracy.
Then there is the other eastern
front, where German militarism has
set up the Turkish barbarians as the

it is essential that the new Russian
democracy should have the fullest
support "of the Allies. One result of
the revolution has been a consider
able withdrawal from reconquered
Armenian territory, if this is not to
remain under the abominable Turk, if
In Palestine the hopes of the Jews are
not to be defeated, if Germany is to be
prevented from setting up in the
strategically important area of Asia
Minor a military alliance that at any
moment, might set out to terrorize any
one of three continents, a southeastern
settlement just as humiliating to
Prussianism, as restitution and re
storation in France and Belgium, will
be equally essential.
To make Europe, Asia, and Africa
safe for the great democratic develop
ments which victory promises all
peoples, "Germany and Austria must be
shut out of this area altogether. The
obvious means of defeating any future
unholy alliance of Turk and Hun is a
strong democratic settlement in the
Balkan States. This imperatively in
volves a Teuton withdrawal from
Serbia and Roumania also, as com
plete as any that can be effected from
Belgium and France. In this light.
1 quite apart from the justice due to the
Balkan peoples now under the Prus
sian heel (and the case of Serbia is not
one bit less hard if less heroic than
that of Belgium) it is clear that any
propoals put forward by Germany to
make peace talk will be regarded as
intrigue, if they do not include a
surrender of conquered territory in
the Balkans and abandonment of the
Turk to his fate.
So whatever the terms of the.
Kaiser's answer to the Pope they will
not alter the fact, that the Allies are
determined to obtain a settlement
which obviously can only be won by
the thorough military defeat of the
