The telegram follows: "S. A. T. C.

been prepared for the future of the
S. A. T. C under conditions brought
about by the armistice, which will be

President's Political Offensive Is Characterized As
Comparable to Military Successes of Marshal

(United Tress Staff Correspondent)
PARIS. Nov. 12. An early peace conference is not expected, a
it will take time for the Allies to Mtabilize and confederate the baby
democracies rising from the wreck of the HohenzolIern-lIapburg
Although none of the Allied conferees can be quoted, privately they
laud President Wilson's political offensive, characterizing it as compara
ble to Foch's military succc;cs.
The impre;sion is widespread that Wilson will play a most inijior
tant role in the democratization of the European nations whose aspira
tions he has godfathered.
(United Tress Staff Correspondent)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12. America and the Allied nations now
face the-great problem of rebellion in Germany and the spread of Bol
shevism throughout Europe.
President Wilson, in his address to Congress announcing the armis
tice terms, made a direct appeal to the German people to strive quickly,
to gain self-control of their present situation. Countering this Doctor
Solf, the German foreign secretary, has sent the President an appeal to
soften the conditions imposed upon Germany by her enemies to assist
the new German government in preventing rebellion.
One modification in the armistice terms is believed likely in the
matter of freeing German ships now idle in their harbors.
The armistice terms would make these subject to seizure, but Presi
dent Wilson lias suggested "presently" they should be made available
for carrying needed food supplies to the Central Empires.
