dent Wilson's plans for attending the
peace conference are all matured
with the exception of the day and
hour nf sailing Ills departure, how
ever, la certain early next week.
It Is entirely probable that the
first announcement of the personnel
of Ihe American delegation will be
made In the president's address to
the opening of congress, which will
be delivered Monday or Tuesday. At
the same time the president may
make something In the nature of at
statement to the country, si well a
to congress, on his going to Kurope,
something no other president has
ever done
The most Important announcement
that has yet been marts In connec.
tlon with the official plans for ti
poace conference came tod iy It
was that there would be absolutely
ni censorship on the news on which
the American newspaper corres
hnndents send hack home. At the
personal request of President Wil
son hoth the llrltlih and French
governments will entirely relax all
censorship on all American news,
paper dispatches telling of the de
liberations. Furthermore, to facili
tate the transmission of news to this
eountry, the government, through Its
recently acquired control of the
cable lines, will give new a prefer
ence In transmission second only to
qovernment official business. News
will take preference over all com
mercial business on cable lines. '

Oeorge Creel, chairman of the
committee on public Information,
alo announced today that the, com
mittee's machinery In Paris would
exercise nothing whatever approach
ing a censorship on the dispatches
telling of the progress of the confer
ence. All the committee's facilities.
Mr. Creel said, are to be devoted ta
helping the American newspaper
correspondents get the news back
home. The committee's offices In
Paris will be used as headquarters for
newspaper correspondents, stenog.
raphers,' typewriters and tntemret-
ers are to.be provided, and the com
mittee's machinery also will be used
to assist the correspondents to set
their dispatches on the cables.
I ntll (wo or three days ago there
were grave doubts as to whether
any American newspaper corre
spondents at all would he permitted to
accompany President Wilson on the
trip. There was, however, to be
no restriction on the passage of
newspaper men to France by any
means they might find available.
Mr. Creel took the position that the
American people should be Informed
of the movements of the president at
all times, through their only source
of Information, which Is the dally
newspapers, and upon his represen
tations it finally was decided to In
clude a correspondent of the Asso
ciated Press and correspondents of
the other press associations In the
president's official party aboard the
liner i.eorge Washington. Ik. was
decided at the same time to give pas
sage t correspondents of Individual
newspapers on the army transport
Orlr.aba. which will sail from Ho
hoken Sunday at noon. She will bo
part of the convoy of the president's
ship, which will Include the super-
ireadnaught Pennsylvania and a
number of other naval shiis.

Besides the president's official
arty the George Washington will
carry a naval crew of more than
ihjO officers nn.l men. The George
Yushlngton, being a faster ship, wil
arrive In France at about the same
time as the Orlzalin. It seems to be
settled, although no official an-
nosni ement has been made, that the
president will go first directly to
Frame and later t Kngland and
p'K-il !y Italy. If he Intends to visit
iinv ollnr Kuropean countries hjs
plans have not become known.
