"Washington. July 24. 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. A. tonight, and
