OF WAR WORK GOAL
ARMISTICE TERMS ARE AMENDED
Amendments of the .armistice terms made by Marshal Foch after
his first meeting with the German plenipotentiaries, r.s announced last
night by the State Department. Includes the delivery to the United
States and the Allies of all Germany's submarines, instead of the 160
specified In Uie original draft of the armistice.
Another amendment specifles "that the countries on the left bank
of the Rhine evacuated by the Germans shall be administered by the
local troops of occupation" instead of by the local authorities under the
control of the armies of occupation.
Instead of the immediate withdrawal of German troops from Rus
sia, as originally provided, the amended terms specify that they shall
be withdrawn "as soon as the Allies, taking into consideration the
Internal situation of these territories (of Russia), shall decide that
the time for this has come.
Reduction Is made In the amount of certain military equipment to
be delivered by the Germans to the associated governments, includ
ing 25,000 instead of 30,000 machine guns and 1,700 airplanes instead
The number of railway cars to be delivered, however, is in
creased threefold, from 50,000 to 150.000. It is against the delivery of
this amount of rolling stock that Dr. Solf, German foreign secretary
has protested to President Wilson, asserting that the distribution of
food In Germany to the civilian population will be greatly hampered.
Another amendment provides that "the allies and the United
States should give consideration to the provisioning of Germany
during the armistice to the extent recognized as necessary."
To assure the execution of the armistice convention "under the
best conditions, the principle of a permanent international armistice
commission is admitted." This commission will act "under the au
thority of the allied military and naval commanders in chief."
An amendment to the naval clause provides that all vessels desig
nated to be interned shall be ready to leave German ports within
seven days of the signing of the armistice.
Directions for the voyage (to neutral ports or those of the allied
countries to be designated) will be given by wireless.
Other amendments include: "Renunciation" instead of "abandon
ment" of the treaties of Bucharest and Brest-Lltovsk and ow supple
Evacuation by all German forces operating in East Africa within
a period to be fixed by the Allies instead of within one month.
German troops are required to withdraw Immediately from Austria-Hungary
as well as from Rumania and Turkey.
Evacuation by the enemy of the Rhineland (left and right bank)
shall be so ordered as to be completed within thirty-one days in all
after the signing of the armistice, instead of nineteen days.
