Throughout 1915, Colonel House was in Europe for Wilson, sounding out the prospects for peace. House wanted to work out a peace offer which the allies would accept, then spring it on Germany, thus passing the onus to the latter if she refused. The allies did not accept.

In December, he embarked aboard the chartered Oscar II in a fanlaslic cfforl to "get the boys out of the trenches by Christmas."

R. began a three-day celebration of the 22nd anniversary of the Communist revolution.
