FEB. 22 FOR A STAÏ OF FIVE DAYS Officiel Itinerary from Washington Dispells Doubts That Boats Will Be Here. It is lip to Organizations To Provide Proper Entertainment for Them According to advices received by the Review from Washington, the torpedo boat destroyers on recruit-. ing duty will spend five days in Morgan City arriving here from New Orleans on February 22 and departing for Port Arthur Texas on February 27th. It will be a month yet before the boats arrive, but it is not too soon for the Chamber of Commerce, the City officials and other organi- j zations as well as individuals to be gin preparations for the proper en- j tertainment of the visiting fleet. ; This will be an opportunity to ad vertise to the world the hospitality of Morgan City. Every city visited by the fleet thus far has entertained the officers and the men of the fleet in a social way, and no doubt Morgan City people will make the men remember Morgan City for a long time. Committees will be appointed in the near future by the leading or ganizations to formulate plans for the proper entertainment of the fleet, and arrange other details to make for the comfort of the crews while here. One thing seems to be settled in the minds of all who have been heard to discuss the question, that is, there is a crying need of greater facilities for the care of the SCHOOL PRORLEM BR0WSIN1NTEREST Diversified Views Are Pres ented in Sidewaili Since the appearance of the ar ticle discussing the school question, which was published in The Review j son on Friday, and the letter of a pat ron in Saturday's issue, therè has ; tal been considerable discussion of the question heard on the streets.

It is believed that the Berwick patrons would agree to this plan in view of the fact that they are sending their children to Morgan City schools and getting all of the possible benefit of the Morgan City schools on an equal plan with Morgan City children.

S. With Foreign Nations 7. Washington, D. Boldly and frankly, Jan. 22.— President Wil j son laid before the Senate of the United States today the fundamen ; tal of a European peace which this country considers essential, says the American. Clearly and forcefully he de clared the right of ' the United States to have a voice in determin i ing the peace conditions which shall jbe lasting "by the decrees of an eternal covenant" through an inter national league to enforce peace. He laid down flatly the conditions which both sides in the European struggle must agree to if the United ; States it to become a party to the ! world agreement to prevent future ;wars. ! And he asserted that the United ! States cannot in honor withhold the service of adding their power to the authority and force of other nations to guarantee peace and jus tice throughout the world through a j league of peace, ; It is an epoch making occasion, Not since the foundation of the re ; public has a president of the United j States in public statement declared the right of this nation to be heard ; in the terms which will settle a war j in which the country has no active ■ part. ■ Not since the days of Washington has a president of the United States laid before the foreign relations of this government before the Senate in open session, Washington gasped with amaze ment when the president announced that he would make his statement, sat in tense silence when he de manded for this country the right to determine what shall constitute a lasting peace in Europe and to night floundered helplessly in its ef forts to appreciate the magnitude of the step. The United States found istelf tonight an aggressive, vigorous claimant for a place at the council board which shall frame the terms to end the European war and insure future peace.
