FOR 5ECURITY OF
EUROPE - BALFOUR
COUNTRY IS READY TO CONTINUE
ITS GREAT SACRI-
ARE OF LITTLE USE
Opposition Claims That Original War
Aims Have Been Extended By
London, Nov. 6.-A. J. Balfour, sec-
retary for foreign affairs, replying in
the house of commons today to a
peace motion proposed by H. B. Lees-
Smith, lord member for Northampton,
declared: "The aims for which Great
Britain entered the war were not, or
are not imperialistic, or vindictive,
but one and all are needed for the
double purpose of the emancipation
and security of Europe."
Mr. Balfour asked the house to show
by an overwhelming majority that
"we believe in the cause in which we
are struggling and which we know we
can bring to a successful termina-
tion. Great as are the sacrifices al-
ready made, we are ready to continue
them, and 'continue them indefinitely
until the great, righteous and un-
selfish object we have in view is se-
Andrew Bonar Law, chancellor of
the exchequer, amid loud cheers, mov-
ed closure which was carried 282 to 33.
Mr. Lees-Smith's motion was then neg-
atived without division.
In the course of his remarks, Mr.
Balfour expressed the opinion that dis-
cussions of this kind did little to as-
sist the object that those who started
them had in view-the attainment of
an honorable peace at the earliest pos-
sible date. He ridiculed the idea that
secret treaties existed as suggested by
Mr. Lees-Smith and declared that
Great Britain was not a party to any
such treaty. He did not believe any
such treaty existed.
"It never was and is not the object
of the allies to take from the German
empire admittedly German territory,"
said Mr. Balfour, "but of couse the
allies desire the restoration of Alsace-
Lorraine to France. The allies," contin-
ued the secretary, "are not fighting
for that alone, or as an isolated ob-
ject for their war aims.
"We are fighting in the first place,"
said he, "that Europe might be free
from the perpetual menace of the mil-
itary party in Germany."
Mr. Lees-Smith is moving his resolu-
tion maintained that successive secret
agreements between the allies had car-
ried their war aims far beyond their
original aims. He declared that the
recent rumor which asserted in addi-
tion to losing Alsace-Lorraine, Ger-
many was to be deprived of terirtory
on the left bank of the Rhine, had
been confirmed in secret session of
the French chamber by M. Ribot.
Representing Ann Arbor in Russia,
Mr. Frank L. Olmstead of this city,
has been stationed in one of the army
Y. M. C. A. camps that have been es-
tablished in that country and for whose
maintenance $3,000,000 of the huge1

MICHIGAN NAVAL MEN WIN
COMMISSIONS AT GREAT LAKES
Members of Ann Arbor, Unit 'lNow in
Service at United States Rifle
Range, Wakefield, Mass.
Walter M. Simpson, '20, Curtis O.
Thompson, '19, Lester L. Thompson,
'19, and George Gilmore, members of
the Michigan Naval militia, who left
Ann Arbor for the Great Lakes train-
ing camp last spring, have received
commissions as gunner's mates, and
are now located at the United States
rifle range in Wakefield, Mass.
Simpson has charge of the expert-
rifleman course, C. Thompson and L.
Thompson are in charge of the marks-
man run and the sharpshooter course,
respectively, and Gilmore is chief of
the machine guns.
Members of the Michigan naval unit
were sent to Massachusetts during .the
latter part of the summer, and from
Wakefield they have been distributed
throughout all parts of the East, con-
ducting naval rifle ranges. Some are
at Virginia Beach, Va., Charleston, S.
C., and Cape May, N. J. Other groups
are to be stationed in Maryland and at
"Y,, NEEDS MONEY FOR
COMFORT OF SAMIS
CAPTURED AMERICANS MUST BE
SUPPLIED BY COUNTRY-
Because of the recent capture of
12 Sammies by Germans, the Friend-
ship War fund campaigners in the
colleges and cities throughout the ha-
tion are speeding up their canvasses
with the hope of lending all possible
aid to Conrad Hoffmann, Y. M. C. A.
war worker in German prison camps.
"The University quota of $25,000
will be attacked with all possibl 'vig-
or," declared Mr. N. C. Fetter, chair-
man of the campaign. "The casualty
lists and roster of our soldiers in.the
barbed-wire enclosures of Germany
will bring home the realization of the
seriousness"of the work for war funds
and give us co-operation, I am sure,"
continued Mr. Fetter.
The Y. M. C. A. is now the only
line of communication between the
Americans in German camps and their
relatives in this country, because the
Boche authorities will recognize no
other American institution. Owing to
recent adjustments, it is now possible
for letters and packages-to be sent to
"The wire-torn and muddied cloth-
ing of the Americans must be sup-
planted by warm overcoats and other
clothing for winter, and it is for this
purpose that students are asked to
consider their fellow's comfort and
contribute to this cause," declared Mr.
Francis Bacon, '02, in discussing the
campaign in Michigan. "Here is a
wonderful chance for University stu-
dents to directly aid these sufferers,
many of them formerly in colleges and
At a meeting of the committee to
be held at 6:45 o'clock Wednesday in
the Lane hall, the team captains and
their solicitors will discuss final or-
ganization plans for the drive. Mr.
Bacon will speak on Michigan's part
in the million dollar Friendship war
fund campaign. The meeting is for
men only. Every Michigan man in-
terested in the work of the Y. M. C. A.
in camps and cantonments is urged to
One hundred prominent Detroiters
will go to Camp Custer Friday to
gain first hand information on army
Y. M. C. A. work. They will be enter-
tained and shown through the camp
by field secretaries of the "Y."
A typical day in camp has been ar-
ranged in detail for the visitors and
they will learn from direct observa-
tion how army Y. M. C. A. work in all
its departments of cantonment ser-
vice is carried on.
The party is a detail in the army
"Y" fund drive that is now in progress
throughout the country.
NEW AUTOMOBILE APPARATUS
ADDED TO FIRE DEPARTMENT
Tests of the new automobile com-
bination engine-hose truck added to
Ann Arbor's fire equipment last week,
have been made and have proven the
machine highly satisfactory. Mr. W.
F. Aitken, a mechanic employed by the
American Le France company, manu-
facturers of the truck, is in the city
to demonstrate the machine and to
instruct new drivers.-
This new apparatus makes the fire
department a "horseless" one. The
two horses now used by the depart-
ment will soon be turned out and
their stables converted into a garage.
An appropriation of $600 was made by
the city council for this purpose but
repairs are being held up for the pres-
ent because the amount has been found
to be insufficient for the total repairs
The new engine contains 1,500 feet
of hose and has a pumping capacity
of 800 gallons.
