' - ' .> BRITISH ; fffittib- m SLUMP Foreign Exch'afrge' r in' London Demoralized UiiHe'r-deWfo't^New York VM&-SO'' QWotsition'. ' London, Jan. 29.—Foreign .exchange was demoralized • under the lead 1 of New York, which slumped' to"^3.'50' to the pound,' representing a decline of about 38 per cent' from--the normal.. Paris checks at 47, francs to th" pound' and Belgian ht'49" f nines contributed to the demoralization, while business with Italy was nlmost impossible. The reasons for the decline of the New York rate were the same as those previously held responsible—the huge accumulation of- tlie debt of Europe to America, with tjie. additional factor that recently France and Belgium have tjeen buying dollars through London." Lombard street does not (consider the decline unusuai, in view., of this debt, which will reach n big figure, by . the time for the resumption of the -payment of interest, on the American loans, and it would not be surprised to see the rate'go 5elow .$3.50, especially If the demand for dollars continues. t ...iw Cloth'fbr ; Hard Wear.

ALLY PLAN .REJECTED Serbs See Injustice in Settlement :; of-Adriatic. Question. Note to the Council-of Ambassador* at Paris Favor*-Wilson's ' - ' Prbp'o'sa'l. Part?, Jan. 29.—The Jugo-Slav reply to tide" allies' ultimatum' regarding; the Adriatic question,, received in Paris Wednesday -afternoon, .amounts 'to .a .Virtual' refusal of : the' compromise bf- ferred by the Italians. The Jugo-Slavs' communi'catlon will be presented to the council of ambassadors as soon as It is deciphered.. The note,' while 'amounting to a re : fusal of -the alternative contained in the allies' ultimatum, is couched In a conciliatory tone,-'and dpens tlie wity for. further discussion of the question. .Jugo-Slavla -points out that It is stl'J quite ready to'accept a solution _bf the problem along the lines of President Wilson's 1919 proposals,-, adding, thai the Jugo-Slav government 1ius no" official cognizance of the treaty of Lon-' don. The reply adds Hint the pact of London, is .a secret document, the test of which was never officially communicated to the Jugo-Slav' government, and therefore it cannot consider a solution which is based on a -treaty it has never seen nor had an-opportunity of examining and discussing.: The Jugo-Slav reply readied Paris at one o'clock in the afternoon, but owing to the length of the document it will .take time to de-cipher." The note will then be taken- to the d'brsay, where it delivered to Premier Milleralid's cabinet chief, the p»Qnier bofng absent in Belgium decorating Belgian cities.

But, there is one-great difference ' fcbetween the war work and the peace work—in the great struggle we were building for war and destruction; we are building • i now for peace and construction. . . •'• Community Service is s getting together the finest elements jj 1 "in the nation's life—regard for our neighbors, affection for our n homes, interest in the place where we'dwell—and blending them into, a force working, not for our soldiers at war, but for our' soldiers come back from war, for the men 'and women at home, for everybody in each community.. Mothers and fathers, sisters,»sweethearts, brothers,'can all unite'in-Community Service with the, satisfying knowledge that their endeavors are going to be. reflected in better, sweeter, brighter local conditions'. This, we take it, will meet with the approval of every American. During the war a new spirit of comradeship was born 1 in city, town and hamlet; a spivit particularly conspicuous in S those places uniting through "War Camp Community Service @' to extend hospitality to the men in'olive clrab arid blue. All ' 1 who shared this spirit or came in contact with it hoped if might @ . not be permitted tn,lapse with the coming of peace.
