Says MarceL

to-day to .have full confidence in our
determination, our love, our work .and
our respect of peace and justice."

First Steps to Be Taken
Toward International
Plans for First Meeting of
. League Assembly and
New Members v
Washington, D. C.-May C.-A'full
program awaits attention of the coun
cil of the league of nations, due to as
semble in Rome to-morrow for its fifth
meeting. An outline of the preparations
for the meeting reaching here shows
that first steps are to be taken toward
carrying out such provisions of the
league covenant as international dis
armament, publication of all treaties
entered into by league members, plans
for the first meeting of the league as
sembly, admission of new members
and many other matters.
The method of presenting these ques
tions to the right members of the coun
cil lias been worked out very fully and
much data assembled by the permanent
staff around which the discussion
will probably center. Suggested
coursese of action also have been
outlined and to insure adequate pre
sentation of each subject, an airang
ment has been perfected tinder which it
will be the duty of a particular mem
ber of the council to familiarize him
self in advance with data on each spec
ified question and to plead the consider
ation of that question when it is called
Under this plan," the French repre
senative .of the council will be respon
sible for discussion as to article IX,
which provides for creation of a perma
nent commission to advise the league
on military and naval matters general
ly and supervise action toward inter
national disarmament or limitation of
armaments. The British member has
particular questions regarding the
permanent organization of the secre
tariat staff of the league; the Brazil
ian, steps towards suppressing inter
nationally the traffic in women and
children and the Japanese mem tier,
consideration of the report of the
Washington labor Conference.
Budget matters of the league, in
cluding the determination of the
medium of exchange, whether dollars,
pounds sterling, francs or what other
unity in which calculation of money is
to be made in future, have been made
especially in the province of the Span
ish representative.
In some instsnces, all league members
and even nations outside the league
structure have been circularized al
ready with request's for information
bearing on questions to come before
the council. In approaching problems
to be taken up by the special economic
conference to lx held at Brussels May
2.1, preparation went even to the extent
of submitting to all powers a full ques
tionnaire. The United States govern
ment, received one. of these, but it is
not known what reply waa made.
The information sought was not sm h
as is usually regarded as confidential
bv a government, but merely called for
placing in standardized form figures as
to trade and other matters which as a
rule are contained in routine govern
ment reports-

Washington, D. C, May 6. Official
interest in the development of the po
litical phases of the sweeping revolu
tion in Mexico has been stimulated
by government reports which continue
to indicate a rapid weakening of Car
ranza's grip. Although any recogni
tion by this government of the rebel
movement other than that accorded
any de facta forces was said to be im
possible, it is known agents of the
state department have tttdied care

The progress of the revolutionary
movement already is such that the reb
els are planning an early completion of
itheir program, which calls for the se

. Official and unofficial advioea agree
in general that revolutionary forces
are appearing with startling rapidity
in almost alJ parts of the country and

are well under way. Army oflicers who
have been studying the situation do
not airree with the optimistic claim
of some of the rebel leaders (that Mex

that Carranxu will experience difficulty

Not to Let His Friendship for the Brit
ish to Unduly Influence His
Official Acts.
Washington. D. C, May 6 Admiral
William S. Benson, war-time chief of
naval operations,' told the Senate naval
investigating wommittee to-day that
both before and Jriiig the war he had
warned Rear Admital Sims not to let
his friendship for the British unduly
influence his official sets.
Admiral Benson said he could not
denv that he had told Admiral Sim
in March 1017, "not to let the British
pt.ll the wool over your eyes; we would
as soon fight them as the Germans." as
he could not recall all the details of
the interview.
The witness did say. however, hat a
wrong interpretation had ocen placed
en the statement attributed to him by
Ai'miral Sims and be added that as a
result he had been dune a grave in-
ji slice.
He denied that lie was in any way
unfriendly to the British.
Asked bv Chairman Hale what in
structions he.gae Admiral Sima be
fore that, official first sailed for Lon-
Ion, Admiral Kern-on said he cautioned
him to be verv careful of his conduct.
in view of the delicate situation, and
to remember that the t nited Mates
still was a neutral.
I ' gave him very earnest instruc
tions along that line, said the witness.
I felt verv stronglv regarding the sit
nation and prolmhly ued very forcible
language to impress on him the seri
ousness of the sit list inn. hut what
words I used 1 cannot recall."
Admiral Hcon added that if Sims
said he bad lieen told not to let the
Hritii-h pull the wkI over his eyVs. it
would '"have to go at that."
"You do not deny it?" asked the

Hnied Admiral Kenson. "I do denv the

attempted to lie placed on it. I don't
think anything could have been more
confidential than niv conversation with
Admiral Sims."
'How could vou ay that we would
as soon right the British as tile trf-r-mans!"
asked the chairman.
"Merely as a figure of speech to im
press on him the seriousness oi nis
task." was the reply.
Admiral IVnaon said that late in
1!"I7 a feeling had grown up in the
United State that Admiral Sims was
being wrsuaded to give too much at
tention to Kritish shipping and was
using American destroyers loo largely
in connection with Kritish vessels.
The witness testified that when he
was in lxndon he told Admiral Sims
f this fcelinjj and advised him a a
friend to be more rareful not only for
his own sake, but because of his offi
cial position.
'To say thst f repeated the Ian
goape Admiral Sims says I used be
fore he went abroad is absolutely un
true," declared the witness.
"I never had any unkindly feciing
or anything along ihat lne that the

think I ever had a conversation with

Training of Junior High School Teach
ers a Feature Will Help Relieve
Shortage of Teachers.
The critical shortage of teachers,
with the resulting enlistment of many
of the less well qualified for such serv
ice, is stimulating some of the New
Kngland colleges to take active meas
ures for the future relief of a situ
ation that is already serious and daily
becoming more so.
Dr. K. I). Collins, head of the depart
ment of pedagogy at Middlebury' col
lege, has announced that the practice
teaching relations which the college has
maintained with the local hij;h school
for the past, six vears will be replaced
by the establishment of a new model
school tinder the direct management
and control of the college, in which
both practice and demonstration teach
ing will be carried on. and care of the
physical, mental, and moral welfare of
school children will be made an es
sentia,! part of the teacher's prepara
tion. It is the intention of the directors of
the new model school to receive chil
dren of the seventh and eighth school
years, the first and most critical years
"ol the "junior high school" period. For
conducting the work of these years
very few teacher are now adequately
prepared, so rapid has been the reor
ganization of secondary education
throughout Ihe country on the junior
high school x basis. The inclusion of
these classes ifill permit the college to
confine itself, as heretofore, to the
training of secondary teachers, but will
extend this preparation to include the
two earlier years, for which the short
ape of trained teachers is just now
most acutely felt.
Work in the modern languages will
be especially stressed in the new model
school and the co-operation of the col
lege modern language departments
ought to produce some unique results
with these younger pupils.
