THE WASHINGTON TBIES: WEDNESDAY: DECEMBER 29; 1915.
NEW ARMIES,
BRITISH REPLY
TO PEACE HINT
Summary of Possible Terms
Offered By Berlin Meets
English Ridicule.
LONDON, Dec. 29. A declmlon to
call new armies into the field by con
scription, If necessary, in Great Brit
ain's answer to what officials regard
as a new "peace feeler' from Ger
man)'. Press dispatches from Berlin and
Geneva today contain new peace
hints and report that the official
news agency of Germany, the Wolff
Bureau, has sent to newspapers a
summary of possible terms of peace.
This summary, according- to the bu
reau, was prepared and printed by
the Xuc Zuericher Zeltung of Zurich.
Ridicule Peace Program.
Though the Wolff Bureau specifical
ly declares that, though clrculat'nc
this summar), it is not repruseiiuiiK
the government in putting out "peace
XeSlers," that view was generally taken
here today.
British officials ridicule the alleged
German peace program, commenting
sarcastically on the idea that Ger
many would exact hugu Indemnities
from tho allies.
The possible peace terms suggested
by the Swiss newspaper and printed
in Germany call for:
1. Evacuation of Belgium and north
ern Fruncc by Germany..
2. Establishment of a i'ollsh kingdom
under thd domination of ticrmany and
the payment of a largo sum annually
to Germany by ltussla.
Return of Colonies.
1 Payment to Germany by Belgium
of tho sum Belgium formerly spent
each year on her armies.
i. Return of all German colonies con
quered by tho allies.
o. Payment by tho allies to Germany
of an indemnity of about HGOO.OOO.UOU.
Thr peace terms, the Swiss newspa
per declared, should also contain some
guarantees that Belgium would enter
into no alliances with Germany's
enemies. Germany probably vould
maintain garrisons In Belgium until the
allies fulfilled all condi'inns of the
peace treaty.
Kicnch claims upon Alsace-Lorraine
were ignored by the Swiss paper in
drawing up Its tentative p.:a'c program.
The Geneva Tribune prints reports
that the German chancellor will visit
Vienna shortly with the object of open
ing peace discussions.

afternoon session Miss Margaret Wilson
pieslded and -spoke on "Tho School Aa

ers, of national note, told about school
social centers,
"Tho fundamental difficulty In meet

of Chicago, in commenting on "Pres

drivers of early morning milk carts,

For Musical Hot s.
Mrs. Oakley suggested that "If Mr.
Ford should fall in his endeavor to

"We all believe In the rights of the
