this question will have been resolved
Into positive shape.
President Wilson has begun to
hear from every section of the coun
try on the army question The
various notes being sounded ware
specifically requested when the War
college universal service bill wen:
before the country. -The * peqple

selves to the president and their
represwntatlvVs in congress as to
whether there should be universal
training, a call for volunteers, or
some other means to raise an arpiv
Several state legislatures have
passed resolutions favorinr univer
sal military training Hundreds if
telegrams and letters from college
students and young men In all
part* of the country urge adoption
of such a system. Out of hundred*
of newspapers questioned by the
National Association for Military
Training 9.1 per cen* favored a law

Ing Rut Uirrc are also many voices
raised InJopposition and thus far
Presldenr Wilson has not declared

"need of some form of physical

The note made public In full
added that the government la
rertoualy considering whether or not
Germany’s ’ flagrant violations” had
not abrogated the 1796 17W nnd I*2*
treaties.
After the reciting of Germany’s
violation jf the treaties the aote
adds:
' In view of the clear violations of
the plain terms of the treaties In

litigations thereunder would be faith

In conclusion the note says:
"It would appear that the mutual

While the note indicated »a£nu*
lonaMeratlon of abrogation of the

rated tha’ It p-wbably will be tin
able to act without the jmnage- on
that subject.
The note said further
