It was to have begun in Ghent on Christmas Ehre with a banquet tendered by the Bur gomaster .to 50 representatives of thc United States. 50 Englishmen and 50 Canadians in the hall where the treaty was signed. This plan . ls upset by the fact the ancient Belgian city now ls occupied by the Germans, with whom England is at war.
