.ereval resolutions. One declared that
international committee should be
ipolntcd to ticck a solution of tho
change crisis, the committee to include
nitrate and delegates from tho associ

Another declared that Germany's In
lUnnlty should be represented by nego

t'at signed the peace treaty and,the na
tions which arc members or In the future
will be members of the League of Na

olti down any form of International

Other resolutions adopted called for

tiles; that the various nations Immedl-lK0t

The work of the conference was con

bonne Premier Mlllerand, who presided,
iftcr describing the total destruction of
France's richest manufacturing regions,
isked, "Is It not exacting much from
us to ask us to think first of the enemy
of yesterday?" '
The Premier pointed out that the
Chamber of Deputies had just voted a
measure of taxation which would make
very person taxable In France pay
more than any person In the world ex

that France could not act without the co-
i oration of the Allies. "One great les

that no people can suffer without others
suffering too; that the misfortune of
one Is the misfortune of all."

tlss "Jenny," or training plane, nith a
motor which had seen too much service,
tho pilot realized his motor would not
permit stunts so he put his-plane In a
tall spin In disgust nnd held It there
while the plane whirled downward. He
, came out of the spin without difficulty,
but hail no chance In the competition.
Wesleyan Hying In the next event,
which consisted of coming to rest as
near as possible to a mark on the field,
also made many gasp, for the pilot,
name not announced, escaped running
Into the roof of a hangar only by giv
ing his veteran ship "the gun" at the
last possible moment and skimmed over.
In his second attempt he overshot the
mark and bounced along from one wing
to the other about six feet off the
ground. He got his ship to earth
safely, however, M. H. Pyne of Prince
ton made a beautiful landing and won
the contest. .1. P. Keller of Pittsburg
and Robert K. Perry of Williams won
the next positions.
A hint of comedy and a threat of
tragedy marked the last event, an
"alerte" contest. In this the pilots rs
tnoved their Hying clothes, and, shiver
ing In the brisk wind which whistled
across the field, lay down on army cots.
At a pistol shot they dived Into"thelr
clothes and raced to their planes

the ground first, but W. G. Nowell of
Lehigh had motor trouble. H!s me
chanic, Merton Bachman, finally got the
moter running and scrambled aboard.
The plane rose about fifty feet, and then
as Nowell started to turn down wina,
the missing motor threw the plane Into
a elde slip and the nose dropped
downward and tlie machine crashed.
The plane was destroyed and the motor
was hurled bodily from it, but uacuman

London. May 7. Not even one hangar
and airplane factor-, which the "ao
ficir Hunthchau complains is all the
Allies will permit Germany to have for j
the purpose of international aviation, j
will be left in Germany when the Allied j
Air Commission has finished Its work ;
at least not for military purposes.
EVeryx airdrome, tiying machine and
aircraft manufacturing plant, represent
ing a cost of GO.000,000 marks, will be de
stroyed. The newspaper tatement that the
German air force has been disbanded al
ready is premature, but in a few weeks
German air power will cease to exist, !
The Pun and New York Herald cor-1
respondent Is Informed by the Air Mln-'
Istry here. I
"Germany, with an adequate number
of aircraft at her disposal, would remain
n constant, menace to the other Powers
of Europe," an official of the Air Min
istry said. "As It Is she Is powerless
strategically.
"Germany's long planned prepara
tions afforded her during the war a dis
tinct advantage In aerial warfare,' es
pecially through the fact of central po
sition. Howeer, ouch advantages have
been entirely lost by her.
"On the other hand. Germany now
Is subject to quick aerial Invasions from
all sides except the North Sea. Enemy
aircraft could fly over the German
borders and1 be bombing her territory
within a couple of hours after a declara
tion of war. Indeed, the German men
ace has- been removed entirely."
Althoughjalrcraft construction was ex
pressly forbidden Germany for a period
of six months following the signing of
the armistice during tha' time she has
built the Zeppelin jjodensce and many
airplanes. Tho Bodcnsee probably will
be demanded by the Allies.
The allied air commission Io Berlin
under Commodore Groves of the air
forces have met and overcome nil the
obstructions placed in their Way by the
Germans. Every, air plant in Germany
has been Inspected by the commission
and a considerable amount of. aircraft
material discovered. The German excuse
always was that the airplanes were for
commercial purposes.

Paris, May ".The silence of Presi
dent Wllvm regarding the Supremo
Council's Invitation that America again
consider the acceptance of tho mandate
for Armenia, or thnt the President at
least act as arbitrator on the qucstlen
of whetner Erxcrum be Included In the
Armenian boundaries, '.3 not worrying
leaders In allied ocaco circles. , They arc
drafting tho Turkish treaty as rapidly
as possible for presentation to tho
Sultan's pUnlpotentlarlcs at Versailles
next Tuesday.
It now nppcare that the temporary
return of Premiers Lloyd Georae and
Mlllerand to consideration of the WIU
son views on the Turkish treaty was
never Intended to signify that the Allies
would accept the President's proposal
to oust the Turk. from Constantinople,
but, rather, was a llnal effort to enlist
American capital and sympathies for
the Armenian State.
.Naturally there has been some con
cern regarding the possibility of the
United States accepting the Armenian
mandate, which would oecessltnte modi
fication of some of the features of the
Turkish treaty. Indications now point
to tho fact that the Turkish treaty will
be drafted In such a way that the Turks
will accept automatically tho Allies'
provisions regarding the Armenian
boundaries, the details of which arc to
bo worked out after the American at
titude on the mandate Is known defi
nitely, the Turkish submission thereby
assuming tho nature of an,uncondltlona:
surrender to the Allied decisions regard
less of their ultimate effect on Turkish
spheres of influence.
In French circles the failure of the
President to reply within ten days to
tho San Remo appeal tfor American sup
port In tho case of Armenia serves to
recall President Wilson's published
statement that he had spoken his last
words on -European affairs and did not
Intend to make any further effort to

COMMISSION RULE IN ,
PALESTINE AT FIRST
Popular Representation Will
Come Later.
Ixjndon, May ".Dr. Chaylm Welz
mann. president of tho World Zionist
Commission and head of the Zlpnlst
delegation to the peace conference, says
the government of Palestine will be
placed In the hands of a high commis
sioner and a council until such time as
popular representation can be Introduced
In the country. The new administration
will begin In a month or six weeks and
the announcement of the name of the
commissioner may be expected soon.
Dr. Welzmann says mat many jews
are anxious to emigrate to Palestine,
but the emigration will have to be regu
lated according to the economic possi
bilities of the country. Palestine can
provide for a population of about six.
million. Dr. Welzmann said he expected
that emigration from such countries as
Russia and Poland wduld start soon.
Palestine plans provide for resettle
ment during the first year of between
23,000 and 30,000 persons, and the fol
lowing year probably 100.000.
VANDERLIP IN DOUBT
OF LOANS TO ORIENT
Says Interest Must Be High
and Security Excellent.
Tokio, May 3. America's best con
tribution" to the economic readjustment
of the Far East will be something more
than financial engagements. Frank Van
Cerllp, who Is visiting Japan at the head
of a commercial mission, remarked to
a correspondent of Reuters, Ltd., to
day. '
"I feel," he said, "there will be far
more Important things for Amcrlea to
do than merely to make loans, and 1
particularly doubt the wisdom of mak
ing loans to meet the expenses of gov
ernments and military operations. Amer
ican capital can earn a large return at
home, and the needs of Europe are ex
treme. Therefore, the East cannot ex
pe.t capital to flow to It unless It offers
security comparable to that offered In
America and Europe, as, well as a com
paratively attractive rate of Interest."
