"U. S. IN CRITICAL SITUATION;
CONGRESS HAS POWER
TO TERMINATE WAR
America Has Accomplished Her Pur-
pose; Formal Treaty with Ger-
many Is Unnecessary
(By Associated Press)
Paris, March 18. - An important
conference between President Wilson,
Premier Lloyd George, Premier Cie-
menceau, and Premier Orlando began
at 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. Lord
Robert Oeci, the British authority on
the League of Nations, was to dine
with the President at the Paris White
Washington, March 18. - If Presi-
dent Wilson does not negotiate a peace
treaty satisfactory to the senate, Sen-
ator Lenroot, of Wisconsin; republi-
can, said in an address on the League
of Nations before the Washington
Commercial club here tonight, con-
gress may pass a joint resolution sum-
martly ending the war with Germany
without a treaty, leaving American
participation, in the League of Na-
tions to future determination.
Lenroot Favors General Plan
Senator Lenroot declared he favored
the general plan of the league as pro-
posed but would not be coerced into
voting for the constitution as now
drawn without amendment.
Asserting that the United States
today is in a most critical situation,
with American principles and ideals
endangered by the plans for the
league, Senator Lenroot continued,
"We are told that the President will
not permit peace with Germany unless
there is made as part of the peace
treaty the constitution of the league
as drawn in large part by.Great Brit-
ain. We are told that this will be
done to force the senate to accept
without amendment the British con-
stitution, revolutionizing our govevn-
ment and its foreign and domestc
policies. In other words the senate
is to be coerced to do something
which it otherwise would not do, and
public opinion in America is thus to be
coerced into demanding ratificaton.

'PROFESSORS NOT NEW,
Prof. Allen S. Whitney, of the Edu-
cational department and chairman of
the Appointment committee, was in
Lansing last week when there was
considerable discussion on the pro-
posed bill which provides that a com-
mittee of University of Michigan fac-
ulty men shall prepare all text books
for grammar and primary schools in
"This is not the first time that such
a bill has been suggested at the leg-
islature," -said Professor Whitney,
"and it is a question as to whether
its reception will be better weir
In the event of the passage of the
bill the president of the University
will appoint the committee to see to
the selection of texts and another
committee will be named annually to
revise the stereotyped plates. Those
engaged in this work will be reim-
bursed by the state for their time.
'I do not believe," said Professor
Whitney, "that university faculty men
are the ones to determine the courses
in grammar schools. It would be a
difficult matter for the average col-
lege professor to write a second grade

A notary public is in the office ,at

Several men holding two discharges

whether they are entitled to two

first discharges were out of reserve

There has also been some misun-
derstanding as to the dates of serv-

enlisted before Nov. 11, 1919, are en-
titled to the gratuity.
