Prominent Author to Appear in Hill
Auditorium One Week
From Today.
Norman Angell, prominent as the
author of "The Great Illusion," and
noted as a great English publicist,
speaks Friday, December 3, in Hill
auditorium under the auspices of the
Oratorical association.
It is to be noted that while Mr. An-
gell is known as an English publicist,
he passed his youtn and early man-
hood in the United States, and also ac-
quired citizenship here.'
That the interests of Americans are
inextricably, if indirectly, bound up3
with those of Europe, has become in-
creasingly clear, as can be proved by'
the barest investigation of the
trend of political thought in this coun-
try. It was this fact which led Mr.
Angell to write his famous book, "The
Great Illusion," which created a great
stir both in America and England. In
that .volume he describes the funda-
mental motives which explain the riv-
alry dc armaments of Europe, and re-
futes and challenges the whole doc-
trine of militarism, the doctrine which
asserts that advantage in the last re-
sort goes to the professor of prepond-
erant military force.
He shows that international finance
has become so interdependent and so
interwoven with trade and industry
that the intangibility of an enemy's
property extends to his trade. The
author points out that the war-like
nations do not inherit the earth; they
represent the decaying human element.
He is an urgent advocate of interna-
tional peace, and shows how a politi-
cal reformation is within the scope of
practical politics, and shows also the
methods which should be employed to
brng it about.
It is expected that Mr. Angell's talk
next week will deal especially with
European-American relations in re-
spect to the immigration question and
will contain further ideas and plans.

Copenhagen, Nov. 25.-The partici-

paign is believed a result of the arriv-
al in southern Russia of troops also
many heavy field and sea cannon from
Japanese armament factories. Dis-
patches received in Berlin state that
large consignments of these cannon
are now at Odessa. This news has
caused deep impression in military
circles in Berlin.
German military authorities believe
that the Russians are about to strike
the blow that they have been prepar-
ing in the near east for the last two
The fact that Russian troops are
being concentrated at Odessa, the prin-
cipal Russian port on the Black sea,
has given rise to the conviction that
Russia will attack Bulgaria on two
points. One of the Czar's armies is
expected to march through Rumania
for a direct assault on the Bulgars,
while another is apt to reach a landing
place on the Bulgarian coast of the
Black sea.
Greece Yields Conditionally.
London, Nov. 25.-Although the re-
ply of the Greek government to the
entente powers is described as satis-
factory and is furnishing a basis for
the settlement of the questions at is-
sue, it appears that the situation has
not yet been entirely cleared.,
In reply to a question in the house
of commons today, Sir Edward Grey,
the foreign minister, said the govern-
ment was not yet in position to make
a statement regarding the situation of
