WORLD PEACE WITH IN Great War Which Was to an End, More Than tilities Ceased WitlTthe Signing of the Armi' stice, Nov. 11, 1918. GERMANY SIGNED PROTOCOL PRIOR TO OTHER. CEREMONY Treaty Goes into Force Without Action by the United States, and the League of Nations Provided Therein Will Come into Being at Session to Be Held Next Week. Paris, Jan. 10. The treaty of Versailles, making peace be tween Germany and the ratifying allied powers, was put into effect at 4:15 o'clock this afternoon by the exchange of ratifi cations. ' v The entire ceremony, which took place in the Clock hall at the French foreign ministry, was completed by 4:16 o'clock. Previously Baron Kurt Von Lersner, head of the German mission, signed the protocol "of Nov. 1, providing for reparations for the sinking of the German warships at Scapa now and to insure the carrying out of the armistice terms. The signing of this document occurred in the office of the minister of foreign affairs. ' '. . " . .- . Baron Von Lersner and Herr Von. Simson, the other Ger man representatives, were among the last of .those to arrive at the foreign ministry tor the day's ceremonies. They passed into the foreign officeshortly after Premier Clemenceau, who, a3 usual, was given an ovation when he stepped out of hi3 car. The delegates assembled in the private office'of the minister of foreign affairs, where, at a secret session the protocol was signed at 4:09 o'clock, r - : , .. Led by Premier Clemenceau, the delegates then filed into the famous Clock room, where were held the plenary sessions of the peace conference that fixed the terms of the treaty. Baron Von Lersner arid Herr Von Simson were the last to enter the room and the first to sign the minutes recording the exchange of ratifications The proceedings began without cere mony, Premier Lloyd George of Great Britain following the German delegates at the signature table. He was suc ceeded by Premier Clemenceau of France who, on returning to his seat .after signing, stopped in front of Bar; on Von Lersner and Herr Von Simson. The German representatives arose and bowed to M. Clemenceau, who said a few words which were inaudible to' the spectators. The. premier then passed to his place without shaking hands. " This incident was watched with the most intease interest in a dead silence. It was noticed that Baron Von Lers ner made a movement as if to put out his hand, but seemed to check himself as he saw that M. Clemenceau kept his proy-gloved hands at his sides. Peaceful relations between Germany and the greater number of the nations engageA in the great war, were estab lished by the action taken at Paris to day. The peace treaty now goes into effect as Between Germany and those powers that have finally ratified it Great 'Britain, France, Italy, Japan, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Guatemala, Peru, Poland, Niam, Czechoslovakia and Uruguay. - Great Britain was the first of the five great powers represented in the su preme council of the peace conference to take such action, being followed in succession by France, Italy and Japan. The United States, alone of, the "big five, has not ratified the treaty. As the list shows, final ratifications have been given by most of the smaller pow ers signatory todhe treaty. China did -not sign the document, because of her objection to the Shantung provisions, but proclaimed a state of peace with Germany. The all-important ratification by Germany was given on July ft, 101!, the day following which President Wilson presented the treaty to the United Mates Senate.

EXCHANGE OF RATIFICATION WAR EXCEPT UNITED Started in 1914 Comes a Year After the Hos ished on Feb. 14. i The German' repre sentatives were invited to Versailles during April after the draft of the terms of peace had been completed. They received the treaty on May 7. The treaty not only defines thj terms of peace with Germany but contains the league of nations covenant and the provisions for the international .labor organization. The document comprises 15 parts, with numerous annexe. It provided that as soon as it had been ratified by Germany and three of the principal allied and associated powers, nroeoHs vernal nf the ricnotot of ratift- r. - - , i - cations should be drawn, up from the date of which the treaty wouia come into force as between the powers which had ratified it. The treaty will enter into force for each other power at the date of the deposit of its ratification. In October last a stiflicieiit number of powers had ratified the treaty to com ply with the requirements for its effec tiveness. Because of the sinking of the interned German warships by ,thcir of ficers and crews at Scapa Flow, how ever, and the failure of the Germans to live up to some of the armistice terms, the allies on Xov. 1, demanded that be fore the treaty was put into effect Ger many should sign 1 protocol providing for reparation for the destruction of the warships end guaranteeing the carrying out of the armistice terms. Since that time the question of the nrntnml and nartieularlv the repara tion provisions in it, have beet under negotiation between allied supreme council and the German government. It was only within the past lortnigni mat the situation began to clear, an adjust ment of the tonnage demands upon Germany being reached. y Many Peace Acts Now Start.

Senators Lodge and Hitch cock to be placed beforo the students and faculties of 700 colleges and uni versities, who will express their opin ions in a referendum vote to be taken next Tuesday. Two thousand mem bers of Western Reserve tniversity will vote. Senator Lodge's statement Bays iu part: "The United States has asked nothing in the peace, settlement - and has received and desire- nothing ex cept the security and peace of the world. That peace, a majority of the Senate belK-ves, cannot be achieved through the league of nations as agreed to at Versailles. We cannot amend the league as it applies to other nations, but we are determined that it shall be made safe for the United States. Sure ly we who ask no territory, who wish no spoils of war, are justified in say ing" under what conditions we shall en ter into this world alliance." Senator Hitchcock's statement says in part: fThe Lodge reservations are destruc tive because they go much further and Work a number of changes, in the mean ing of the league covenant. They spe cifically repudiate the reciprocal obli gation to join other nations, in pre serving the territorial integrity and po litical independence of members of the league against outide aggression. This obligation is specifically provided in article X and if agreed to by all na tions affords a practical insurance against any way of conquest in the future. If repudiated by us now it Is an invitation for Germany to re new attacks, because it leaves in doubt the question whether we must be tak en Into account." The students will yote on six ques tions, for, against, and compromise, framed after consultation with leaders of both sides, in order to present the cace fairly.
