New York, Dec. 15.-What the Am-
erican mission was sent to accomplish
in the inter-Allied conference in Par.
is "has been successfully and satis-
factorily done," was the message
brought to the American people by
Col. E. M. House, head of the mission,
who returned to the United States
today with his four colleagues.
Return Unostentatious
The return of the party was void of
ostentation. After advising the press
of the mission's arrival Colonel.
House motored to his home, where he
received newspaper men and announc-
ed that the mission's report had been
dispatched to Washington. Colonel
House will deliver his personal re-
port to President Wilson and will go
to Washington Monday.
"In England and France the influ-
ence of the United States is para-
mount," said Colonel House. "In
both countries the morale is splendid
-the best I have observed on any of
my three trips abroad since the be-
ginning of the war.
Morale Strong
"You mean the morale of the fight-
ing forces." Colonel House was ask-
"No, I mean the morale of the men
in uniform and the people as a whole,"
he replied. "Their determination toj
win without thought of cost is admir-
Colonel House said he would not
discuss war aims. In his estimation
he declared one person's opinion was'
as good 2s another's as to what Russ-
ia might be expected to do. Asked re-
garding the progress of General Per-
shing's work he said:
"His task is more difficult than the
pe01pl' know but he is doing admir-
ably. Our men-our fighting'nien and
those who have been sent abroad on4
other missions since our entry into the
war-have made a highly favorable{

from Ministers of Ann
Today is Go-to-Church Sunday
among the students of the University.
"It is a great thing." said the Rev.
H. Brauer, of the St. Paul Evangelical
Lutheran church last night, in com-'
menting on the idea. "The student
should make every Sunday a "Go-to-
Church" Sunday, and not merely to-
day. By extending a special invitation
<of this kind, many students are en-
couraged in church going who might
not otherwise be reached."
The Rev. John B. Pharr of the Sec-
ond Baptist church said: "I approve
of the movement, and believe that to
be truly successful, a man must give
a certain portion of his time to relig-
"It is a capital idea," declared the
Rev. G. A. Neumann of Bethlehem

ply to Beach at any time. Men under
