WILSON'S WORDS OHEER
FRANCE.
Country Ecournffed by American
Declaration 61 ideals.
Parle, March 11,?"President Wil?
ton's declarations of American policy
ha\'e been a moral refreshment to
France," said Albert Thomas, min- j
ister of munitions to the Associated
Press today. "America comes forward
toward the end of the war with tin
assertion of ideals, of which the Eu?
ropean peoples, amid all the strain of
combat, of hatred, of sufferings, of
determination for specific national
aims need to be reminded.
France has been stimulated, cheer?
ed and supported by President Wil?
son's message to congress and by hb'
inaugural address."
"What do you think are the im?
mediate effects of the American rup?
ture with Germany?" he was Asked.
"The hour that America is ac?
tually In the war" replied the minu?
ter, the ilow of supplies will be re?
sumed at full tide und sssentlo?
credits will be easy. That is the way
it would seem now."
"The active cooperation of the Unit
ed States In submarine chasing in
transport and in the supply of ma?
terial and money would contribute
enormously to shortening the war.'
said M. Thomas and he added: "It
would be an Inspiration for France
to have an American contingent
lighting on this side."

'armed guard for the protection ol
the vessel and the lives of person
aboard" has been sent to the loreig
embassies and legations here by the

German government on January 31st
'hat all ships, those of neutrals in?

The notification will be sent to Ger?

Civic League Notes.
Tha Civic League has been long
ritlelfted because of the seeming fact
imt bo little has been accomplished
.; the department of Civic improve
? < vt? tbut-is the beautifying of tr<
'Uy, It i3 Claimed that many ui.
dghtly places in the town should have
hecn taken In hand by the league an1
Improved. It Is true that no one spot
shows great achievement along
this line, but on the whole tiv
charge is an unjust one. To do this
work extensively two things are nec- !
essary. Money and cooperation, and
in this particular work we have had
little of cither at our disposal. In
several instances where owners of Uli
kempt, untidy lots were asked to im
PIOVC BUCh property, or to allow lb
league to do so, they have refused t<
aCejUieeOC In either place. Not
withstanding those two barrlorr. how
over, it must be admitted by the fair
minded person that the appearance ol
bunter on the whole, has ImproVOl
wonderfully these past few years. To
those who return aft r an absence
some time the general i ^provement ??
ho town is striking. The removal o
ragged fences, planting of |, wns I u
gardens, better care of the tr. -i ami
ippearanes of the homes, all have
? Hing effect and we> know tha: th?
icrsisteiit efforts put forth by th<
r?cague, through the various rhannol
?f lectures, public and private ap
oeals, endeavoring to keep always !<
ore the people thai ti,?? rb ii urn
snltsry < Ity i ten ft r tou ird be
omlng a city beautiful that n spirit

N"ow that our strcts have been paver
