HE EENATEI3 ■ DM PEACE Leaders m Forty States, Re gardless of Party, S.yn Hinging Appeal TREATY WITIioU I AMENDMENT Sty Every Day Of Delay Puts World In Imminent Rerll Of New-War. Point To National Unrest. New York. —(Special.)—Two hundred And fifty le :u.ag Americans, Repub licans and Democrats represeiuing for ty different states and every prominent activity have joined in a non-partisan effort to bring about the g'alilication of li.e Peace Treaty “without amend meai and w.AioiU delay.” Their names are attached to an address to the Lulled States Senate, which was made public today, through the League o Enforce Pe..ce, ui.ct it had been seat to eveiy member of the Senate. The signers, almost without excep tion, are men and won:'.a of national reputation. They include such promi nent citizens as ex-Presideut Taft, George W. Wickersham. Attorney Gen eral in the Inst Republican administra tion; A. Lawrence Loiwell. president of Harvard; Charles C. Moore, of Han Francisco, president of the Panamu Exposition; Judge George Gray, of Wilmington, Del.; President Samuel Goir.pers, of the American Foliation of Labor; Harry A. Wheeler, of Chica jo, retiring president of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States; Mrs. Carrie Chapman Call, president of the National American Woman Suf frage Association; Cyrus H. K. Curtis the Philadelphia publisher: President Berber J. Grant, of the Mormon Church, and Spargo, leader of the So cialists. who supported the war. Tiie signers declare that every day of delay in ratifying the treaty puts the world in "imminent peril of uew war.” Their statement follows: In tiie Senate at Washington, now that tiie committee on foreign rein tions lias reported the treaty, the lines are sharply drawn between tiie hnme dia.te ratification of the treaty of peace with Germany, and Its amendment with a reassembling of the conference and a reopening of negotiations that would bring great delay and prolonged un certainty in settling the great issues ot tiie peace. No partisan plea cun be made. Party lines are already broken. Standing at a distance from the conflict in the Senate chamber, we plead for immediate ratification with out delay. Our land requires it. A state of nervous strain, tension and unrest exists manifesting itself in dis turbances, which in some oases have no self evident connection with the war, but which are, in fact, its after math. The world is put in imminent peril of new war* by the lapse of each -Jay. Dis ensions between us and out former allies are being sown. We firmly belieie and solemnly declare that the States and cities in which we dwell desire immediate peace. The waging of war steadied and united the American people. Peace will bring prosperity, and prosperity content. Delay in the Senate post poning ratification in this uncertain period of nether peace nor war has resulted in indecision and doubt, bred strife and quickened the cupidity of those wtio sell the daily necessities of life and the fears of those whose daily wage no longer fills the daily market basket. We beseech the Senate to give the (and peace and ceitainty by a ratifies Mon which will not keep us longer ! n the shadows of possible wars, but give he whole world the light of peace, 'ileservations in the nature ot clarifi aliens in the moaning of the treaty, not inconsistent with Us terms, will not require the reopening of the ne gotiations with Germany and with our associates in the war, which we all and e ch united to win. But there is no possibility of doubt that amendment of the treaty, as is now proposed in the Senate Commit tee on Foreign Relations, would re quire negotiation and a reopening of all the questions decided at Paris. Months of delay would follow. The perils of the present would become the d-M(l!y dangers of the near future. All the doubt engendered would aid the plots tor violent revolution in this and other lands. The issues here and elsewhere between capital and labor, the conspiracy of speculator and prof iteer, would all grow and become more perilous. This cannot be. The American peo ple cannot, after a victorious war. permit its government to petition Ger many, which has accepted the treaty, tor its consent to changes In the treaty Yet if the United States should amend Die treaty for Us own purpose and policy, Germany would have full right to ask for concessions. Germany has agreed to make no claim in regard tc enemy property seized in this country to an amount of seven hundred mil Hon dollars. Our recent foe could ask for a reopening of this issue and of the Lusitania claims. H could rals? every question ope.' before hostilities Terms SI.OO in Advance. NO. 28 In regard to submarine warfare and the treatment of its nationals in this coun try. Ail the provision for our trade In Germany raised by the econorn e clauses of the treaty, many of them vital to our industries and our farms, as in dye patents, dye supplies and fertilizers, the working of the Repara tion Commission, which superintend* the trade of all with Germany, could all be brought up by Berlin for read justment by our negotiators, act in u for the United States alone and r<: longer associated with other victor in"* powers or supported by a victories American army on the German border Peacfs itself, the peace of the world is delayed until ratification coin a? And any amendment postpones p'-cv Germany and England alone of the principal powers have ratified. The other principals necessarily await our action, influential and powerful as we are today in tiie world s eff ;rs. The ravages of war on more than a scon of fighting fronts are continued by any needless delay. Let the Senate give the world peace by ratification without amendment. Even the amendment for which mc“t can be said, the provision in regard to Shantung, will secure nothing w!i : ch cannot be gained if China, backed by the powerful advocacy of tiie United States, addresses itself to the m..chin ary for righting international wrongs and meeting just claims creat'd by the league between nations, china, after eighty years of oppressive trea ties and despoiled rights, by which nil the great powers have profited direct ly or indirectly, has for the first time, in his covenant and treaty, the me; .is and method to secure justice and tiie removal of the oppressive economic in terference of stronger nations w: <> citizens are within tier gates, protect ed by a long succession of interna tional agreements. Moreover, it should be remembered that tiie clause regard ing Shantung was made upon the state ment by Japan that she will return the territory to China and thmcf rc. upon that condition, compliance with which promise Hie hvague cm require. The peace of the present and H.e righteousness ot the future can be be t secured by the ratification of the cove nant and treaty without amendment. Let, the Senate take no action that will give any party to the treaty, and espe dally Germany, ground for maintain ing that the ratification of the United States is not complete and that changes requiring a resumption of conference and negotiations have been made in It.

OWED MUCH TO STEREOSCOPE How Commanders During the Great War Got information of Vital Importance. The old-fit shinned stereoscope played an Important part in Hie world war. It supplied an angle to photographs, snapped from airplanes, that could not be obtained from tiie ordinary camera lens. Before its use the pictures all seemed flat, but Hie stereoscope added height, and tints steep slopes, that appeared in pic • tines like flat ground, were shown in their true characteristics, and the lives of men who would have to cover Hip ground in attack were saved. The airplane camera looks directly down on the spot to be photographed, making a picture as a one-eyed man would see it. A stereoscopic camera, in which the lenses are two and three-quarters inches apart, would not produce the stereoscopic effect. Pho tographers decided to take pictures 100 yards apart to give a view, just as a giant, with eyes 100 yards apait, would see it. Those pictures were put on cardboard, and viewed through Hie stereoscope. At first a cottage looked like a tower, a bucket like a well, a trench like a canyon, etc. The officers soon learned to translate these eccentricities, and tiie problem was solved. True pictures, giving Just Hie exact Information desired, were then obtained by the airplane photogra niters. >
