ed the following resolutions:
Be it resolved, First, That we con
sider 'Miss May Delle Barre one of the
most thorough, patient and capable
teachers we have ever had.
Second, That we make the state
ment that. our low marks in mathe
matics have been due to the new meth
od of marking, and not to our dislike
for Miss Barre.
Third, That we have great love and
respect for Miss Barre notwithstand
ing the reports circulated to the con
Fourth, 'That we regret that such a
misunderstanding has arisen.

German ieply may Contain Offer to

1111 Discussion of Possi)le Mode of
Washington, 'May IG.-Without word
from Ambassador Gerard as to Ger
many's attitude toward the recent
American note, omlcial Washington at
taches significance today to intimna
tions in diplomatic quarters here
friendly to Germany that the reply
might contain an offer to suspend at
tacks without warning on merchant
ships, if the United States would re
new its formal proposals for unre

Well informed European diplomats

Would offer to settle the question at
issue by arbitration or diplomacy with
an agreement to abandon submarine
warfare while the discussion was in
Ollicials have been reticent in dis
cussing the idea of arbitration or a
proposal with reference to foodstuiffs,
but It is indicated that the situation
has progressed towarid the point
where the United States would not be
likely to be satisfied with any condi
tional acquiescence in the American
position. It was intimated, however,
that if Germany accepted the Ameri
can point of view, the national ten
dency of the United States of its own
initiative would be strongly to press
its contention on the right to shipl
foodstuffs to Germany.
There is a l ikelihoo(l, too, tIat some
understanding 51light pe reched
through the med ium in of the A nericanu
government whereby Germany could
be assured definitely that no merchant
ships leaving the United States would
be arine, making it possible for sub
marine commanders to exercise the
right of visit and search with impun
ity. Whether Great Britain would con
sent to disarm all her merchant ves
sels carrying contraband, however, is
a matter of conjecture.
That the question of permitting
Americans to travel on armed mer
chantmen may be taken under consid
oration soon is intimated in well in
formed quarters. On the other hand,
some officials believe that will be lit
tle necessity for this, as Great Britain
already has informally agreed not
to arm her vessels plying between
British and American ports.
What Is regarded as one of the
hopeful signs in the general situation
is the confidence reflected in offlcial
and (ipliomatie quarters that Germany
will meet the United States at least
half-way, and will suspend for the
time being her submarine attacks
without warning during the diplomatic
In this connection there has been
much comment here over the recent
announcements from London that
