It is recalled that the efforts of Secre tary Fall to have this bureau placed dnder his control last spring precipi tated a controversy in the Cabinet which was prevented from becoming acute only by abandoning all reor ganization plans for the time being.

Lord High Chancellor in the Lloyd Goorge Cabinet. LONDON, Nov. 10.?The return of this glorious anniversary should surely recreate in the minds of all of us the emotions and ?pirit of comradeship which filled our minds on Armistice Day. The intervening years have been anxious and somber. Too much, as we I.now now. was expected from our victory. Too little allowance was made for the immense dissipation of life and treasure in the long and bloody struggle from which we emerged triumphant. But sanity, patience aritl courage will make it certain that the fruits of that victory will not be dissipated. After a struggle which will be long and gainful, perhaps, who knows, with American help? the civilization of Europe will be saved. At this solemn moment people of Great Britain and people of the United States of America should expel from their minds every unsympathetic thought and re flect with bared heads and reverent minds upon the great struggle which they waged in common and the supreme victory which was at once its eiyl and its crown. By JOSEPH WIRTH. Chancellor in the German Cabinet. BI-.RLIN, Nov. 10.?The fourth anniversary of the armistice re calls the fact that Europe, especially Germany, needs a new sort of armistice?a cessation of uneconomic treatment of reparations, and reconstruction problems. Without a long \i?use, without quiet and without unhindered op portunity to work, Gertnany will collapse and with her all Europe. Wt now have as a resutf of world-famous experts' report the im partial proof that a pause is unconditionally necessary unless Ger many is to collapse and drag hh" .creditors along with her. Now the slogan could be: No^ontinuation of an economic war, hut instead the peaceful co-operation of nations?in other words a new armistice. N, By GEN. JOSEPH MAttQIN.

The First and Second American divisions permitted victory to spread her wings on November 7, 1918. The Thirty-second Division broke the enemy's stubborn resistance while defrnding at the same time the approaches to Chemin des Dames and the Hindenburg line ?glory to them!
