NATION WILD OVER COMING PEACE
NOW BEFORE FOCH
"NOT YET, BUT SOON," IS THE DRIFT OF REPORTS
COMING IN BY ASSOCIATED PRESS FROM
GERMAN DELEGATION IS RECEIVED AT FIVE
O'CLOCK GIANT CELEBRATION OVER
ENTIRE UNITED STATES
IT M TO
MACHINKItY HAH ARRIVED FOR
NEW PLANT A.l IH TO BK Iltj
HTALLED AT ONCK. IS CO.
In company with the rest of the United States and the
entire world, Klamath Falls it today celebrating in a most
vociferous manner the signing of the terms of the armistice
submitted by the Allied nations, virtually amounting to an
unconditional surrender on the part of the Teutonic forces.
The jollifying was started by a "flash" sent out by the
telegraph companies this morning to the effect that Jthe
armistice had been signed, and that fighting was suspend
ed at 2 o'clock this afternoon. While this was prematura
to soma extent, the rumor was acted upon with the same
avidity as would have occurred had it been signed and
'sealed by all the officials of the powers that be.
No official substantiation of the rumor has been received
as yet, but the feeling prevails that it is founded on fact,
and all that is lacking for the official confirmation is the
time needed to make the announcement after absolute
facts have been ascertained. --
In all cities of the Nation, large and small, the glorifying
goes on. Word comes that San Francisco has gone hog
wild, and that influenza masks have been thrown to the
winds la order to give the denizens of that metropolis room
to voice their feelings in a proper manner. '
la )ahington the President left his luncheon to appear
at a window of the White House and wave his napkin at
the throat congregated to express their joy at the news.
Secretary Lansing, it is true, claims to have received a
cablegram to the effect that the armistice; had not been
signed as yet But notwithstanding this fact, the jollifica
tion still foot on, and the joy of the populace will not be
downed. The feeling predominates that the articles have
already bona signed, and even those who cannot wholly be
lieve the joyful tidings, feel assured that something has
taken place to justify such a widespread acceptance of die
tact that PEACE HAS COME.
(By Associated Press). v
PARIS, Nov. 7. It is officially announced that four
German officers bearing white flags will probably arrive,
at the headquarters of Marshall Foch tonight.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 7. Secretary Lansing au
thorized the statement that the German armistice dele
gates would. not be received by General Foch until 5
o'clock this afternoon. .

unofficial report that the armistice terms had been ac-
cepiea, despite tne race tnai omciais uiu nut accent wo
report as true. Demonstrations are penusung.
The President left his lunch table to see from the veran
da what was going on outside, and waved his napKin De

on a meeiage of inquiry rushed to Paris when the rumor
WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 7. Navy cable censors re
ceived an unofficial message from abroad announcing that
the Germans had signed terms of armistice, but there was
no authority for the rumor, and officials said nothing but
