front to receive from General Foch al
lied terms for an armlGtice crossed the

f preparations had been made to receive

fixed by Marshal Foch. This trip will

o'clock this morning state and war de
partmcnt officials who had kept an all
night vigil still were without informa
tion that German plenipotentiaries had
signed the armistice terms. . On the

that the envoys would meet Marshal
Foch today, officials did not expect any
definite news as to Germany's decision
for several hours.
Foch's Powers Military.
PARIS, Nov. 8.-6:50 a. m The
powers conferred' upon Marshal Foch
are strictly confined to the conclusion
of an armistice, according to the Echo
de Paris. The amendments to the
terms placed in his hands by the Inter-allied
council are closely limited,
the newspaper says.
PARIS, Nov. 3 The text of the
wireless exchanges botween Marshal
Foch and the German high command
shows, tho morning newspapers de
clare, tho Germany is still delcrmined
to cloud the issue in every possible
way apparently with the object of at
leak gaining time if they cannot gain
anything else.
The Matlu says:
"Berlin and all Germany are strid
ing rapidly toward a revolution. The
substitution of a responsible secretary
of state for an Admiral von Hintze
was inspired by this grave peril. The
commission sent by the German gov
ernment must have with it men able
to sign immediately wlthouC referring
to Berlin. An attempt must be made
at any price, in the phrase o Prince
Maximilian of Baden, to open negotia
tions In favor of peace, needless to
say the German government is tho vic
tim of a persistent illusion. Marshal
Foch will refuse to como out of his
province which is strictly military nnd
he also avIH certainly refuse any' sus
pension of hostilities until the armis
tice is accepted."
Other commontators write in the
same vein and invariably conclude- by
asserting that German capitulation is
not far away.
