Incidental to raising money for
Jin war work campaign, the com
mittee Is also endeavoring to raise
1:5.000 to aid In the finances of the
council of defense. During the.
tntl-vice drive, the council of de
fence whs "set back" by reason of
the expense of the home guard at
the detention Cmp, and later on.
they were compelled to spend great
amounts of money in helping care
for the influenza situation. It U
believed nothing more than, right
that this body should be financed,
so they can pay this indebtedness,
and this the war work campaign
committee hag undertaken to do.

In this connection It might te
stAtcd that the committees In
charge of the united war work drive
In Tulsa wish to extend to those who
in any wav aided the drive their
thanks. Especially do they extend
thanks to those who got lr the work
right at the start and stayed clear
through, for It has bean a long, bard
drive.
While active solicitation Is offi
cially over, there are Btill a great
number of quota cards out, which
(rives the campaign committee reason
to believe the grand final total will
reach more than $300,000. They
confidently helleve that thev will be
able to hand the eonndl of defense
15,000 and still he $25,000 past the
qnnta of $2r.0,000. A great many
of those residents of Tulsa who are
Mpeeted yet to "come across" have
heen out of town the last few days
and have had no opportunity to place
their subscriptions. Quota cards
from some business firms have not
yet been returned, so the committees
feci as though there la still enough
mors money coming In to make
their objective of $3O0.OOO
Women to Io Their Sham.
Complimenting the committees of
women, those In charge of the drive
ray they have been most faithful
and active In their work. Of the
money that has been raised, the
ladles are responsible for $75,000.
Of this amount. $13,000 was taken
In at the booths maintained along
the streets. The Victory hoys' and
girls' citih, have subscribed a total
of approximately $9,000. This Is be
lieved to lie one of the best Indica
tions, from more than one point of
view, cf the entire drive. Tho young
folks. In subscribing, have to mnke
an Iron-bound promise not to aj
rept any money from their parents,
h'it to c.irrs their subscription by
their own efforts.
It is stated that lists of those who
have made noteworthy subscriptions
to the umied war campaign will be
r.'iMislied. The other list of those
who have failed of their obligation
" do what they should in the mat

MA.PK AT WASHINGTON.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 18. There
was no announcement here today re
garding the delivery of the fleet of
battleships, battle cruisers and light'
cruisers which Germany was re-,
cpiired under the terms of the arm
istice to surrender today to the as
sociated nations. Nor was there any
Information ns to the names of the
ports at which the vessels were to;
be Interned. ;
There is much speculation as to
the final disposition of the ships, but
In the absence of any official infor-,
matlon, many officers thought thlsi
matter would be li ft until the peace
conference mets. The armistice
provided that the vessels were to be ,
disarmed before they left Germany
and that they were to be interned'
at neutral or allied ports ns the as-1
soclated governments might direct
with only caretakers on hoard.
Stripped nf Power. !
Publication of the names of thet
battleships and cruisers which were,
designated by the associated gov-,
ernrnents for delivery reveals that
Germany is stripped of at least half
of the fleet of dread 11 oughts which
it had In commission or building:
when the war began and of practi-
callv all of Its battle cruisers. j
The dreadnoughts Kronprlnz Wll-!
helm, Grosserkurfurst. Markgraf and ;
Koenig are of the same type, each
SH0 feet long and of 2(i.()0n tons.
They were designed for a speed of 23 !
knots and had Just been completed,
when the war opened. They were
armed with 10 12-Inch and 14 5.9

The Prlntz Repent Lultp'd, Konlg
Albert, Kalserln, Kaiser and Frled

They also carried 10 12-inch guns

War Secretary Regards Serv

Developments.
IS GOVERNMENT MONOPOLY
Manufacture of Plajies Is
Controlled; Orders May
Be Cancelled.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 18. Demo
bilization of the urmy air service pre.
scuts a separate problem On which
war department officials are now a'
work. Mow Jt Is to be accomplished
so that the aircraft manufacturing
IndiiNtiy, now a government monop
oly, can be preserved ha not been
disclosed, but It Is possible to statu
uut horltntlt ely some of the consid
erations (but will govern demobiliza
tion plans.
Secretary linker is known to re
card the air nervire as the field of
military enterprise In which lb
greatest developments are to be ex
pected. For that reason, tne army
programs to be laid before l-ongresa
probably will show recominendatlonn
for continuing the aviation branches
on a scale disproportionate te- the
other arms of the service. Every ef
fort Is enpected to be made to im
prove existing types of plane and
nglncs or develop new ones.
To ltelaln Officer.
It Is also certain that the plan
now being formulated will make
provision for retaining in the pres
ent mllltarv establishment officers
an, I men who have displayed marked
ability In th operation, production
and equipment of airplane, balloon
and other lrcraft.
The monopoly of the government
extend to every branch of aircraft
production. To make a start on the
extraordinary program laid out. It
was necessary to build from the
ground up; to crent virtually every
facility required, even to the grow
ing or castor bean , to fumlnh the
lubricating oil required. .The only
exceptions are th automobile fac
tories which were turned from build
lug engines for motor car to the
production of Liberty motors, and
other aircraft engines.
For these plants, the transition
buck to peace time industry Is nat
ural and many are at work. There
exists, however, no market except
tlui government for aircraft that
can possibly engage In any part of
the other plants now devoted wholly
to that production and the future of
these plants Is not as yet clear.
outstanding contracts for military
planes of various type are under
stood to total between 2r,000 and
30,000. It Is regarded as likely that
virtually all of these wilt be can
celled. Many of the orders have al
ready been slowed down if not def
initely withdrawn.
Supply Is Ample,
It was said today that there Is no
need to eouip heavily with any of the
types now In production for military
use as improved machine of greater
speed, endurance and maneuvering
power were developed even whl(
every energy was being strained to
rcurii quantity production here of the
Dellavllands and I landley-Paige de.
signs. It is to new type that chief,
attention will be given by the gov
ernment as the existing supply of
presetrf types psnbably Is more than
ample as a reserve.
In addition to the manufacturing
monopoly, which Includes the as
sembling of scientific data of the
utmost value on the whole question
of air flight, the government lias
complete monopoly over the training
facilities for fliers It owns some 3J
Dying fields In the pnlted States, all
fully equipped and has built up pre
liminary rouisi-H in colleges and uni
versities in all parts of the country
The home aviation schools are now
fitted to turn out 2,000 men a month
rand as reserve military aviator,
while there now are in this country,
more than 12.000 men who either
have passe, through that school sys
tem, or are nc-iring completion of
their training. .There are also tens
of thousands of airplane mechanic
and 3.000 aviators In France a. least
one-half nf whom are fully qualified
military pilots
Possibilities Offered
In the opinion of many officials,
the future of air navigation n the
I nlted Slates rests laigely with, these
men trained to flv by Ihe govern
ment. Having bad a taste of air
work it Is believed that the majority
of these men alwavs will yearn to
continue flying and through them
great stimulus will be given to the
development of the aircraft Industry
by prlva'o enterpris"S. For the time
being, however, the army and navy
i,. s.ipleni-n'ed hy the aerial
1 postal service, will be the onlv outlet
for the product of such an Industry
i and to Insure these government
; needs, it Is thought It will be necea
' sary for the army to follow the naiy
1 practice and take over some one of
'be great plants where machines for
! both the army and the postal servb-i
, ,in be turned out until a norma'.

President Will Sail for France Early in

Opening Sessions.
WHITE HOUSE ANNOUNCEMENT MADE
Official Statement Given Out Declaring Neces
sity for Attendance; Delegates to Be
Announced at Early Date.
WASHINGTON, Nov. IK. President Wilson Will at
tend the opening sessions of the peace conference. This was
announced tonight officially. He will go immediately af
ter the convening of the regular session of congress on De
cember 2. t
This official statement wan Issued
at the white house:
"The president expect to sail for
France Immediately after the open
ing of the regular senslon of c.on
giesH, for the purpose of taking part
In the discussion and settlement of
Ihe main feature of the treaty of
peace. It Is not likely that It will b
possible for him to remain through
out the session of the formal peace
conference, but hl presence at the
outset I necesHary, In order to ob
vlata the manifest disadvantage of
discussion by cable In determining
tho greater outline of the final
treaty about which he mut neces
sarily be consulted. Ho will, of
course, be accompanied b delegate
who will eit a th representative
of the I nlted State throughout the
conference.
"The names of the delegate Will

How long- the president will re
mln abroad h Ylmelf probably
cannot say now. The time for the
convening of the peace conference
ha not yet been announced, but the
general belief here is that it cannot
be assembled before late In Decem
ber nt the earliest. If uch prove
the qtise, the president will ho absent
from the country at least a month
and probably longer.

he will go to Iyindon and poselbly
to llrussels and Koine.
Grcmt Reception Kxprrtrd.
Mr. Wllon I expected to receive
abroad a reception auch as ha been
accorded few men In public life. He
will be welcomed not only a the
president of the Fnlted State and
the commandur-ln-chlef of It armies
and navy, but also a th champion
of world democracy.
