So far as known at the. American head quarters, no disposition has been dis played to block at any point that part of the armistice agreement providing for the withdrawal of the German troops. It is realized that the reversing of the gears of the great broKen Ger man machine will not be simple. There would have been no surprise among the American officers had the Oerman front remained almost un changed, but already there appears to havn been left immediately in front ot ihe Americans little more than a fringe if soldiers. In some places even that line has been withdrawn so far that .irtny men on this side do not know its location. The Germans reluctantly abandoned tbeir efforts to continue fraternization " where the lines still were in proximity, but threats to hold as prisoners any one approaching the American lines practically stopped their visits. Behind the American line the activity of the supply trains continued today and the troops mobilized at the front settled down to routine duty. There was an Increasing number of leaves of absence, however, and the towns in the rear, where troops are stationed, were , gayer than at any time since the begin ning; of the wr.

Many of the most generous contribu tions are coming from the day laborers and people of limited means, who are giving with a spirit of unselfishness that sets a fine example to their more fortunate neighbors. "If the people whose resources en able them to give until it really feels good, and also join the ranks of the workers in raising other gifts, do their utmost, we can put Maricopa county who ciass wnere it belongs. ' JUSTICE 1! Mil WILL TEMPER ALL PEACE CONFERENCES LONDON, Nov. 13. The admiralty tonight makes its first official an nouncement of the sinking of the bat tleship Audacious, which sank after , striking a mine off the north Irish coast on October 27, 1914. The sinking of the battleship, offi cially was kept a secret at the urgent request of the commander-in-chief of the grand fleet. News of the sinkinf the Audacious was published in the United States shortly after the disaster, and former Ambassador Page in London cabled the information to the state department at Washington, but with the request from the British government that it be kept ewret, The British press printed an account of the war ship's sinking, about two months later but the government with held confirmation. After striking the mine, the battle ship remained afloat twelve hours, dur ing which practically the entire crew of SO men was rescued by the White Star liner Olympic. Then a terrific explosion took place on the Audacious and she sank. The ship was later raised and repaired. CANCELS STRIKE ORDER RICHMOND, Va., Nov. IS.

D BIG TREASURE HUNT ON AFTER THE WAR (From Answers) Some of the greatest hidden treasure hunts ever known will begin when peace is declared. Then attempts will oe maae to retrieve the precious car goes of the hundreds of ships that have been sent to the bottom through sea wanare. niAruin; 10 iora tserestord. since the war began more than 2300 British, allied and neutral ships have been sunt inis represents a tonnage of consider ably more than 4,000,000. or course, a great deal of the raren of some of these ships was perishable and of comparatively trifling value; oui many were almost priceless ar gosies. Gold and precious stones and rare pottery and fabrics from India; more gold and precious stones from South Africa; still more gold, silver and dia monds, copper and lead from South America; silks and velvets from China; and nearer home, quicksilver, copper, silk and oils from Spain. Much of this treasure, which was contin uously pouring on to the shores of Britain in the early days of the war. is now lying in hundreds of shattered hulks in the Atlantic, the Pacific, the Mediterranean and the Indian ocean. The law relating to the recovery of property from the sea "treasure trove" is very obscure and difficult to inter pret. With regard to vessels wrecked near the coast, whose cargoes may be washed ashre, there is. as a rule, no difficulty about establishing the own ership of the vessel, and they are en titled to recover their property after all salvage rights have been satisfied. But with regard to wrecks on the high seas a very difficult problem will confront the nation when peace comes, especially when it is remembered that thousands of vessels have gone to the bottom, and in many cases there are no records of where they were lost. But what is to prevent many adven turous spirits with money from equip ping treasure-hunting expeditions after the war? Jules Verne and Robert Louis Stevenson never wTote of such riches as now lie buried in the bosom of the ocean. And what princely days they will be for divers! Of late years 'experienced divers have been able to earn from J25 to J500 a week while engaged on a big and risky commission. But after the war divers ought to be able to make large fortunes and easily eclipse any previous records.. Probably the vast majority of the wrecks will be beyond their reach in fathomless deeps. But others that lie near the coasts, not a great many fath oms down, will offer a strong tempta tion. The record depth reached by divers in modern times was achieved by two British naval officers, who got down to 210 feet where the pressure was 90 pounds to the square inch a terrific weight to bear. HI E E III LONDON, Nov. 13 (British wire less service). "One of the principal issues at the forthcoming general elec tion will be the nature of the peace settlement. It will mean the settle ment of tl: : world." Premier Lloyd George made this an nouncement in an address to his lib eral supporters on November 11. "What are the principles on which that settlement is to be effected?" he asked. "Are we to lapse back into the old national rivalries, animosities and competitive arguments, or are we to initiate the reign on earth of the prince of peace? It is the duty of lib eralism to use its influence to ensure that it shall be a reign of peace. "What are conditions of peace? They must lead to a settlement which will be fundamentally just. No settlement that contravenes the principles of eternal justice will be a permanent one. The peace of 1871 imposed by Germany on France outraged all the principles of justice and fair play. Let us be warned by that example. "We must not allow any sense of re venge, any spirit of greed, any grasp ing desire to override the fundamental principles of righteousness. Vigorous attempts will be made to hector and bull the government in an endeavor to make them depart from the strict principles of right and to satisfy some base, sordid, squalid ideas of ven geance and of avarice. We must re lentlessly set our faces against that. Mandate For Just Peace. "The mandate of this government at the forthcoming election will mean that the British delegation to the peace congress will be in favor of a just peace." Discussing the question of a league of nations, the premier said that such a league was more necessary now than ever. He pointed out that the condi tions which prevailed in the Balkans before the war were now affecting practically two-thirds of Europe. "A large number of small nations have been reborn in Europe," he con tinued, "and these will require a league of nations to protect them against the coveteousness of ambitious and grasp ing neighbors. In my judgment a league of nations is absolutely essen tial to permanent peace. "We shall go to the peace conference to guarantee that a league of nations is a reality. I am one of those who believe that without peace we cannot have progress. A league of nations guarantees peace and guarantees also an all around reduction of armaments, and that reduction of armaments is a guarantee that you can get rid of conscription here. "Of course, we must have in this country an efficient army to police the empire, but I am looking forward to a condition of things, with the existence of a league of nations, under which conscription will not be necessary in any country."

THE need is for a sum 70 greater than any gift ever asked for since the war began. The Government has fixed this sum at $170,500,000. By giving to these seven organizations all at once, the cost and effort of six additional campaigns is saved. Unless Americans do give twice as much as ever before, our soldiers and sailors may not enjoy during 1919 their 3600 Recreation Buildings 1000 Miles of Movie Film 100 Leading Stage Stars 2000 Athletic Directors 2500 Libraries supplying 5,000,000 books 85 Hostess Houses 15,000 Big-brother "secretaries" Millions of dollars of home comforts When you give double, you make sure that every fighter has the cheer and com forts of these seven organizations every step of the way from home to the front and back again. You provide him with a church, a theatre, a cheerful home, a store, a school, a club and an athletic field and a knowledge that the folks back home are with him, heart and soul! You have loaned your money to supply their physical needs. Now give to maintain the Morale that is winning the war! THOSE gallant men who wear horizon blue, those bronzed poilus who are entering upon their fifth winter of this war they are the men who know the sheer luxury of a cup of hot soup, a piece of bread, a stove to sit by, and a word of cheer. Think of a nation where every able-bodied man of less than fifty has been under arms for four long years and more. Think of a nation which has suffered as has France: Then you will know what the huts, are meaning to the French, and what the huts are meaning to our fighters over there. It was requested by the Government of France, officially that American maintenance of morale be extended to the armies of the French. Cheerfully it was undertaken, in simple justice for our splendid debt of gratitude. And so you see these huts today, hundreds of them; where French and Americans stand side by side, holding out a hand of friendship to the war-worn, grizzled men whose fighting spirit is an inspiration to our Yanks. Foyer du Soldat they call the hut hearth of the soldier the nearest approach home up on the roads to battle. "The support and comfort of your Foyers," says General Mangin, "has been and will continue to be a tremendous phys ical comfort and moral support, and has given the soldiers that feeling of home which has been so much lacking.' "Your Foyers,'' says Clemenceau, "constantly established in increasing numbers, as great at the front as in the rear, has rendered to our soldiers most highly appreciated service. Thanks to your efforts, our children have found in your midst a center of distraction and comfort" United in this war for freedom, our fighters stand beside the soldiers of France. United in this campaign for morale, these seven organizations come to you as one. France's fight is our fight Unity of command is winning on the battlefields abroad. Unity is hastening victory through morale. Give fo morale, give for unity, give for victory!
