Constantinople, Nov. It As I write,
the announcement that the armistice has
been declared Is expected hourly. The
ministers, both yesterday and to-dar.
held Ions and anxious meetings, at which
reports from commanders at the front
were considered. These reports state
bluntly that their poslton Is absolutely
hopeless, and the Tchatalja lines can
not hold out many days at the best. .
But the enemy cholera Is doing dam
age In the Turkish army. Sanitary con
ditions are frightful, and yesterday's
mortality reached 3,000.
The Turkish commanders are In despair,
as it Is Impossible to stay the Increase
In the terrible visitation. The disease
has appeared in its most virulent form,
and the deaths already run well Into Ave
figures. Those attacked are simply left
to die without the slightest attention.
Diner Halls Wide Open.
Constantinople, largely ignorant of the
awful conditions at the front, remains
extraordinarily calm. Business continues
as usual, and the music halls and other
places of amusement are still filled night

Madison Wis., Nov 15. The famous

the State University bj Prof Blttman,
who went to Federal prison for writing
to voung women of the doings of this
circle, has been duplicated In the city
high school, according to a confession to
the cljv police, which tells of the exist

girls and half a dozen boys who devoted
much of their time outside of school
house to undue associations.
Partly as a result of this exposure, and
partl to the teaching of problems of
life in mixed classes, parents of thirty
girls representing the best families In
the city have- withdrawn their daughters

In line with this plan Charles F

It is understood The committee, un
less present plans are changed, will
recommend that one block In each of
the thirty precincts be selected for this
purpose, and that between the hours
of 7.30 and S o'clock each evening traffic
over these blocks be confined to neces
sary movements and that all vehicles
be required to maintain a low rate of
speed when passing through these blocks
This speed limit will be something under
eight miles an hour. It is believed.
In selecting the blocks to be so treated
the committee has taken them where
there has been the least traffic nnrt.r
normal conditions Of course, fire runs
have been avoided. While It Is not
to be expected that all street roller
skating will be confined to these blocks
because of the added protection. It Is
believed that many, who under trof
conditions use any convenient paved
street, will be drawn together: that the
certainty ot iinding other skaters In
one place In each precinct wilt act as
an Incentive to draw them from other
streets where they at once Jeopardize
their own safety and annoy and Impede
