Germans Will Be Required to Sign
Peace Subject Only to Ratification
of Their Government—Dead
lock Over Flume Still On.
Washington, April 23.—Administra
tion officials were advlseil In a confi
dential cablegram from Paris that in
the consideration of problems eon
fronting the peace conference, such
as Italy's Adriatic claims and the ques
tion of an alliance to protect France
from future aggression, President Wil
son would take no action which might
in the slightest degree jeopardize the
league of nations or conflict with its
fundamental principles. The message
was a reply to a cablegram of Inquiry
regarding the president's attitude
toward a secret alliance, which, ac
cording to certain Paris newspapers,
contemplated a Special defensive pact
to be entered into by France, Great
Britain nnd the United States.
Italy's Claims Cause Anxiety.
White house officials do not attempt
to minimize the gravity of the situa
"tlon that has arisen over the claims
of both the Italians and the Jugo-Slavs
for Flume. It is a situation fraught
with jrrnve possibilities, they admit
ted, but at the same time they ex
pressed confidence that it would be
finally adjusted in ff
cable manner.

—Ivan Boone arrived home from
Gfcmp Dodge, where he has been dis
charged from the army, after many
months of overseas service. During
practically all of the time while Mr.
Boone was overseas his family was
without word from him, his letters
never reaching their destination, and
he in turn failed to get word from his
people at home. It is needless to say
that there is rejoicing in the Boone
home over the safe arrival of the
husband and father.
