In the peace suggestions whic? the Berlin Vor waerts declares the German govern ment is about to advance to the en tents and America through the Span ish government officials here detect the German design, embodied in some shape in almost every one of the peace proposals which have ' emanated from Berlin or Vienna, to leave to. a round-table conference the actual de finition of peace terms. President Wilson and Premier Lloyd George of Great Britain and Premier Clemenceau of France have recorded themselves definitely that no peace conference will be had unless there has been an acceptance by the central powers of the exact terms upon which the conference is to be conducted. President "Wilson's definition of the terms upon whih America is .willing to discuss peace has been acacepted by all of the great entente powers as representatives of their own desires. Officials have pointed out that Ger many is quite well aware of these con ditions. They can only view this re ported new attempt at peace negotia tions as another appeal to the pacifist elements in the entente, and also as Intended to quiet the easy socialistic elements within the central powers. Acting Secretary of State Polk said the new terms seemed more fa vorable to Germany than any that had been made hitherto. It is noted that Vorwaerts is not representative of the German govern ment in any sense; that it is the so c'alistic mouthpiece, and that it would bo the last among the great German papers to be in a position to set out the purposes of the government in or dinary conditions. new areas expected to be . occupied Von -Boehra uses language of appeal rather than threat, showing a marked decadence in German discipline, and that the men are in a dangerous mood and disinclined to submit to severe punishment. . With a charmingly varied program of dramatic readings, and vocal and instrumental selections, the men ri Fort Barrancas were happily enter tained last night by a trio of talented young ladies representing the National War Work Council of the army Y. M. C. A. The , program, which was rendered out of doors, was opened by Miss Bes sie Pharr, of Birmingham, Alabama, playing "Marche Grotesque" by sing ing, and later responding with Dvorak's "Humoresque." Miss Blanche Rudy of Maryland brought forth the vigorou3 and appreciative applause of the sol diers by her humorous rendition of several dramatic readings. In a clear lyric soprano that delight ed her auditors from the, outset, Miss Ruth Hunter, of Nashville, Tennessee sang "Prince Charming" by Liza Leh man, and "God Be With Our Boys To night" by Sanderson. With pleasing freshness and spontaneity Miss Hunter then led her appreciative soldier audi ence in choral rendition of several pop ular trench songs. The Misses Hunter, Pharr, and Rudy are to present a musical concert at the Fort Pickens Y. M. C.
