EVEN VETERANS TIRE Troops Must Establish Telephone and Other Offices and Keep Informed oi News. peace have been stated over and ov-jnew;Iy appointed senator is forty-two er again by the Allies and there is not lhe rainiest suggestion that the Central Powers will agree to any one of these conditions^ The dlsiugcnu- ousness of the note betrays that it was written in Wilhematrasse, Merlin." Would Save Hohenzollcrns. Relative to the offer of peace to Belgium the Express says: "This" Is another Brest-Lllovak scheme and pan of the same plan for preserving the power of tha Hohen- zollerne." After referring to the sinking of the Galway Castle as a coincidence of the offer of peace, the newspaper says: "The Allied peoples will not shake hands with Germany. They will not Ibe friends nor will they agree to any hole-in-The-corner negotiations. "Our peace terntsihave been made abundantly," says the l'ost., "When Germany and ner dependents are ready to accept them they can let us know." "Pacifist" News Against-Peace. Tho Pacifist Daily News is the sole exception to the prevalent tone of comment. Anticipating the general rejection of the Austrian proposals It argues tnat discussions must occur sooner or later as a preliminary to. perice/ind "Says: , _. ..- ~ ; y.\?;" "Against the more • than-..'remote prospect that, decisions might leave Germany obdurate they, might have a very different, result in the case of. Turkey; ; Bulgaria, and even Austria? The Allies, with an unassailable nib): nil case, have everything.- to gain •and nothing to lose by, discussion." "Tlie German emperor is a ventrib oquist, whose ;vo!ce we may hear in this Austrian' telegram." '^the. newspaper contluues, "and we hear 1 it because' the military masters under whom Germany , is bleeding are afraid. Mr. Wilson^) great watchword 'no peace with autocracy' Austria as well as Prussia'and for tlie same cause no German, autocracy cun be trusted for an hour, The Allied attltud» v is clear. require reparation, restitution and guarantees and since tlie fresh German outrages upon French territory we require the punishment of the criminals. Nothing less will do. We remind the enemy ot President Wilson's words "there can be no compromise; no half-way decision is .tolerable.' " As to .the offer-to Helgium, the Mail says it is insulting and only "offers Belgians one more scrap of pap-, er." Telegraph Says Absurb. "The noto is absurb on the very face of it," says the Telegraph. "It is dlssingeuotis, cynical and insecure, while tlie proposal to Belgium is .both iusjncere nnd insolent., We must find a rcpentent and contrite German, and German policy carried out by very different rulers before we can even hope to discuss peace. It is true that nil nations desire the end of the war but peace must be lasting. It must be one founded upon the reconstruction of the Independence of nations. Above all, it must he one, which in MivWHson'* words, makes the world safe for democracy." , .. Teuton in a Bad Way, The Daily Chronicle grouping the Austrian, noto with the offer to Bel- glum and the proposal to withdraw from Karelia us related Incidents sayB: "Every one of these proposals will cerlalnly be rejected. The fact that they are made concurrently Is proot that the Central ISmplres are In a very bud waj\ In Berlin and Vienna It is rottlissed for the first time that the Central Powiers cannot possible win the war." The Times says: "The note Is the stalest of diplomatic tricks. Austria and Germany hope for its rejection in order to persuade their disheartened peoples and armies that a conclusive reason exists for continuing the contest. This move will np( deceive the Allied democracies,. • WANT NEW ALLIANCE. The flpajlan Bolshevlkl are Tired of Their German Connection*. Amsterdam, Sept. }C—Hints that tho Bolshevik government of Rttssin ma,y seek alliances with other powers are contained in u nolo addressed to the people's commlsBarls and Soviets by Nikolai l^enine, the Bolshbvlk Pre•rater, printed in' Lite Pravda of Potro: grad and ropubll8licd In .the l.okal Anwlger of ; Berlin; T'lie j0tc reads: "The ydSlllph'On-the Cispoho-Slovak front is becoming nin'ro dangerous daily. \Vo are dally becoming increasingly convinced that alone we are powerless.

Field, ot Detroit, had :.•! few Jriends In to meet Sergeant M.-'H.' Cordes, Master _ Engineer, of New- York, who was about to be transferred to auothe% sector of lhe front. The fareweJL tea parly was In the woodshed of tne AniericaTi Red Cross canteen, of which .Miss Field is directress. The Invitation verbal, asked tne guesta to assemble In the Pavil- llon In the Gardens; and while the guests were carrying four rough bou- ches to a sort of paper-hanger's w'ork table in the wood shed, two ex-soldiers of the ex-Czar watered some timid sprouts that represented the ; gardens. The chocolate layer cake— um-m-ui, my! —was paraded before tho gueuts at exactly 5:13, a time that ivas made note of .because simultaneously there bustled Into the canteen about fifty young men who had driven u convoy of American supply trucks* bok:k from a big advance S. O. S. depot. Their eyes were half blinded by the clouds of limestone dust they hud been speeding through, and they never did get to see the chocolate cake. Diving into the showtr baths*. l..ey emerged after 0. shiny from their soaping, with hair plastered in position, uniforms thoroughly brushed and shoes cleaned—all ready for a good dinner. , Decorated With Flacs. u'tit back to the party-and the cake, into" the rich top ol which had been stuck twenty-four little American flags, representing the weeks oi service of Sergeant Cordes at the rnnway point where the Red Cross Cuteen was located. -niss Field and her devoted Red Cross Staff wero pSrUcularly indebted to Sergeant Cordes as lie had organized the syBteni of policing troopa unloading tit the station for refreshments at the canteen: They were niarched up to the canteen restaurant, fo*r abreast, splitting in iwos tnat went through side doors past the "cafeteria counter, where they ob- -tained tlieir'food and Coffee anil ,marched out tho wide central door, 'again four abreast, back to the train. It woo due to the efficiency of Sergeant Cordes system that, the canteen -ad becu able to accomodate lCoe men in 28'minutes, which is a record. Sergeant. Cordes had done this as his contribution to the Ked Cross. His work in the army had only to do with the dispatching of trains and the policing of the yards during slops of troop trains, to prevent any soldiers straying away and being lost. He not only marched the men -swiftly through tho,canteen, but had always given at lejist an hours notice_ of the approach of a troop train, so" that tlie lied Cross stnlf might bo assembled—at any hour of tlie day or night, and have sufficient time to get the food ready. "Girls Were Good Lookers." There are some American beauties among this Ked Cross staff; in fact, the canteen has a fairer array of good looks than I have seen anywhere in France. They were all "buck-privates," they said; excepting Miss Field, who wns "Boss Mother." They had a sort of "noh-ocoramissloned officer," called "Miss Sunshine," which' rank each bore at least one day u week. "Miss Sunshine's" jurisdiction was over tho well-appointed club room where she • officiated as hostess. At any time from nine In the morning until 10 at night,.one "Miss Sunshine"' was chatting with Yanks who felt conversational, Joining lu games,of cards or checkers, playing the piano, or sing with those' who wanted to "Btlr. up sotno music," and giving them ad-, vice, stationery, postcards .and cqm. pllments. r£f~!:„ ; :v. One could hardly forsot a. glimpse Into tho "club room" afnlght, with Its comfortable chairs comfortably filled with sleek young Yanks; its arlstic decorations,, j |ts beautifully shatled lamps, H B profusion of flowers, book cases, magazine tables, Its piano and Victrola,-and the attractive girls gliding about like sisters In a big family sitting-room, back home. The i"homeyV touch that women give tho American lied Cross canteen and the motherly attentions qf Salvation Army girls In their more (anions doughuut and pie huts, close to the front, easily account for the much greater popularity of these Institutions as compared with the American Y. M, C, which the Yanks regard more us a sales and religious organization. They a,re petted members of the family lu lhe: llcd-CroBs canteens and the Salvation Army |iuts.
