President Wilson, in an address to the American people on the occasion of the signing of the peace treaty, made a plea for the acceptance of the treaty and the covenant of the league of nations without change or reservation. His message, given out here by Sccrctaiy Tumulty, said: My fellow cocntrymen: The treaty of peace has been signed.

And it is much more than a treaty of pcafc with Germany. It liberates Croat peoples who have never before been able to find the way to liberty. It ends, once for all, an old and intoler able order under which small groups of scfrish men could use the peoples off great empires to serve their ambition for power and dominionl.
