friendship; nevertheless, he always
refused to accept any public office, in
epite of the fact that he lived in mod
est circumstances and could have
secured any Cabinet or Ambassadorial
post he desired. In this manner he
remained entirely independent, and
vu, after President Wilson's acces

nearest adviser on home, as well as
on forelfm affairs. As such. Oclonel
House occupied a position which is
unique in American history.

could nearer approach this wise and
interesting man. We did not reach
intimate relations until his first trip
to Berlin. At that time it was already
the sincere wish of Colonel House to
procure for his g-reat friend the high
est fame of peace arbiter. Later, at
the time of the peace move of Mr.
Wilson In the winter of 1916-'17
he was his rlsjht hand. a.nd conducted
negotiations with me. It remains for
the future to throw a clear light over
the negotiations which took place
then. Today I wish to point only to

was peculiarly fitted to be the cham
pion of this idea. I have never known
a more sincere and honest pacifist
than he. He abhorred war because
it was in contradiction to his ideals
of r noble humanity. He frequently
spoKe witn indignation about men
who enriched themselves through the
war. and added that ho would never
touch the stocks cf war industries.
" 'He repeatedly told me that he
was just as emphatic at London
against the lawless blockade as he
was at Berlin asralnst unrestricted
submarine warfare. Both methods of
carrying on war antagonized the hu-
mane and compassionate heart of Mr.
House. He could not conceive why
women and children should die either
through drowning or through staj-va-
l.on that t.ie objects of imperialistic
polioies, Tvhich he condemned, should
b.? achieved.
j 'In addition to this, he was con-
vineed that neither method would de
1 cido the war. but. only create linilt
j lcs3 bitterness between the wa.rrh.fe
! parties, which would be in the way

j House's opin.ons expressed at that
i t'mo (and a. a German I am sorry
, for this) were proved to have been
corree:. As we now see the war was.
; in effect, decided through America's
j entrance and the consequence of pre
j po'r.derance of material and men.
, " 'There are many noble men.
j whose minds have been poisoned
j through psychological effect of the
war. I. however, cannot imagine that
nel House in the last months of
his li fe could have thought different
ly th:in before. I lis Judgment was
too matter of fact and unimpassion
ed. "We may say that even' now he
wjld hnve been te chief champion
of the idea of nations. In The dp
oeasrd, the good cause of reconcilia
tion of peoples is losing one of Its
sinrrst champions. I am deeply
grlvfd that T can never again see

to see his ideals realized.' "

New York, Mar. 2S. belief -work
of the 1,000 Knights of Columbus ar
workers now overseas with the Amer-
lean Kxp0liiloriary Forces has been,
reorganized to meet the new condi
tions surrounding1 the men upon the
cessation of hostilities ami the occu
pation of Germany.
This -was announced by "William J.
Mulligan, chairman of the Kniphts of
Columbus war . activities committee,
upon his return after a four months'
stay In Prance, Belgium, Germany
and England. The Knights of Co
lumbus had 700 workers overseas
When the armistice was signed. Since
that time 300 additional workers have
arrived In France.
The entire work has been reorgan
ized into a system of zones. Each
zone has a supervisor, and under him
there are squads of secretaries, num
bering from 50 to 100. More than 200
K. of C. men are in Germany with
the army of occupation.
Whilo In Europe Mr. Mulligan
opened up fifty new K. of C, places.
In an interview with General Persh
ing Mr. Mulligan learned that the
General was thoroughly satisfied with
the work of the various organiza
tions. General Pershing st ropsed the
value of athletics for the men.
Mr. Mulligan said:
"In my judgment our forces
overseas will not fully lcavt Eu
rope for another twelve months.
"Wh'Ti 1 left Paris the Impression
was that the peace treaty would
be whipped Into ehape for signa
ture by the middle of May. But
our soldiers will necessarily be
detained until they can be return
ed In comfort.
"All the relief organizations
have made their plans with the
period In view, and the Knights
of Columbus are now working
more intensely than ever before,
and will maintain their work at
this Intensity at least six monrhs."
The question of tree comforts was
of great interest to the men overseas,
said Mr. Mulligan. At a public gath
ering in Paris he told a crowd of
3.500 soldiers that the boys had paid
once, through their relatives, for the
goods distributed, and the K. of C.
would never ask the soldiers to pay
a second time for them.
All discharged solleUers and sailors
should be advised to keep .up the pay

in the military service.
After the declaration of peace those
who have kept up such payments will
