coming of peace.
The military terms of the armistice are embraced in 11 specifi-

drawal of the troops from the left bank of the Rhine, and the sur-
render of all the supplies of war.
The terms also provide for the abandonment by Germany of the
treaties of Bucharest and Brest Litovst.
The naval terms provide for the surrender of the 150 submar-
ines, 50 destroyers, 6 battle cruisers, 10 battle ships, 8 light cruisers,
and other miscellaneous ships.
All Allied vessels in German hands are to be surrendered
and Germany is to notify neutrals that they are free to trade at once
on the seas with the Allied countries.
Among the financial terms included are restitution for damage
done by the German army, restitution of the cash as taken from the
national bank of Belgium, and the return of gold taken from Russia
and Rumania.
The military terms include the surrender of 5,000 guns, half

throwers, and 2,000 airplanes.
The surrender of 5,000 locomotives, 50,000 wagons, 10,000

In connection with the evacuation of the left bank of the Rhine.
it is provided that the Allies shall hold the- crossing of the river at

The right bank of the Rhineland, not occupied by the Allies,
is to become a neutral zone, and the bank held by the Germans is
to be evacuated in 19 days. The armistice is for 30 days, but the
President spoke of the war as "coming to an end."
German troops are to retire at once from any territory held by
Russia, Rumania and Turkey before the war.
The Allied forces are to have access to the evacuated territory,
either through Dantzig, or by the river of Vistule. The uncondi-

ate civilians deported from France and Belgium also is required.

man forts in Katteatt is provided.
The Germans also must reveal the location of mines, of poison-
ed wells, and of like agencies of destruction, and the Allied blockade
is to remain unchanged during the period of armistice.
These are the "high thoughts" of the terms as the President
read them to congress.
All forts on the Black sea, occupied by Germany, are to be
surrendered, and the Russian war vessels, recently taken by the Ger-
man naval forces, are to be surrendered to the Allies.

thrown the military masters of Germany will now attempt to guide
the German people safely to the family of the nations of democracy.

Ann Arbor parades as it has never paraded before. The city
and the student body assembled at the court house at 2 o'clock this
afternoon to outdo each other in displays of patriotism.
Thousands of people poured through the streets of the city, as
thousands more, unable to take part in the magnificent procession
stood on the curbs of the streets, cheering, shouting and displaying
that inherent patriotism which is developed only in a university town..
Every kind of vehicle known to Michigan people, was made
a part of the parade. Each was decorated in its own unique way.
An abundance of flags practically buried the entire city in their folds
while bunting and other decorations were liberally scattered over
every available object.
The University students played a prominent part in the proces-
sion. Practically every man, woman, or freshman in school played
his or her part in the exhibition of patriotism.
With the complete S. A. T. C. and naval unit of the University

Joy reigns throughout the land. Immediately after the state de-
partment announced officially that the world's war came to an end
upon the acceptance of the Allied terms, thousands of citizens
in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and other metropolitan cities
paraded the streets.
Every variety of noise contributed to the hilarious celebration.
Airplanes from the naval training station at the Great Lakes are fly-
ing over Chicago. Monstrous parades are scheduled for this aft-
ernoon and evening.
Whistles began to blow and bells ring in Ann Arbor immed-
iately after the first extra of The Daily at 3:30 o'clock this morn-
ing. Toward daylight the different factories, which were closed
on Sunday, turned loose their factory whistles. Many of the stu-
dents marched up and down the campus walks dragging tin cans-
anything to make a noise.
An Edison company Ford collided with a large Oldsmobile
driven by ex-Deputy Sheriff Christopher at Division and William
streets this morning about 9:30 o'clock. Mr. Christopher and one
other occupant of his crowded car were slightly injured; both cars
were badly wrecked.
