Bache Review States That Peace Re-
Quests Make No Dif-
ference
New York, Dec. 18.-The request for
peace made by Germany has made no
difference with the preparations which
England is continuing, for she has
more than 1,000,000 new men, making
the total number in the field 5,000,000,
and has asked for an additional credit
of $2,000,000,000.
"The rustlings of this peace move
began to be heard in banking circles
here some weeks ago," says the last
number of Bache Review. "It is to be
fairly well concluded that the initia-
tive was given by the bankers in Ger-
many. It is among this class in all
countries that the, hard facts are ap-
preciated, undimmed by halos or fogs
surrounding military operations. It,

Securities on the Decline.
The first fall in the security mar-
kets on the announcement that one
side of the great conflict was offer-
ing peace, while it was abrupt and
forceful, was, nevertheless, viewed as
a whole, not as panicky. Instead,
however, of a continuation after the
first day of decline, there was more
or less of a recovery.
Shipping Losses.
The activities of Germany have cost
the shipping industry of the world a
heavy toll. This is not confined to
enemy countries, but comprises a
huge percentage of neutral shipping.
The Journal of Commerce's compila-
tion shows that since the war began,
nearly 2,000 vessels have been de-
stroyed, with a total aggregate ton-
nage of more than 3,600,000.
British losses represent something
more than 10 per cent of the total ton-

that the country was headed toward
certain ruin, that it was absolutely
necessary to call a halt, if the nation
was to be saved from destruction."

AT THE WHITNEY

The latest musical cocktail having
as its chief inspiration the existing
terpsichorean mania bears the singular
title of "Watch Your Step," and will
appear at the Whitney theater, Tues-
day, Dec. 19.
"Watch Your Step," is one of the
best of its kind that theaterdom has
entertained in many days. All the
Irving Berlin traditions in the matter
of lavish costuming and sumptuous
settings have been set aside, and all
previous efforts undone in the matter
of raiment. There are modishly at-
tired show girls, spirited ponies, and
a group of villagers reminiscent of
Mother Goose. The cordiality with
which "Watch Your Step" and its in-
terpreters are greeted is proof of its
merits.

AT THE MAJESTIC.

MADISON AVENUE COR. FORTY-FOURTH STREET
NEW VORK
Telephone Murray Hill 8800

Five clever acts are to be found
on the bill of the Majestic theater for
the coming week. Perhaps the most
novel of the quintet is the perform-
ance of the four trained horses. The
number best received by the audience
was the singing of the Victoria Four,
whose act was one of the most laugh-
able on the program. The Wilton
Sisters, billed as "Youthful Enter-
tainers," also won approval with their
singing, dancing, land playing. Willie
Hale and Brother, in "Bits of Vaude-
ville," present the regulation type of
comedy juggling, though a few new
features are to be found. A short skit,
entitled "Check Your Hat," affords
several minutes of pleasing farce.
DR. HALL RECEIVES LETTER
FROM SECOND WOMAN STUDENT
In an address which Registrar A.
G. Hall gave before the Woman's club
of Adrian. some time ago, he spoke of
the introduction of co-education at the
University of Michigan, and of the first
woman student, Madelane Stockwell
Turner.
Last Saturday he received a letter
from one of the members of the club
stating that the second woman student
at Michigan, Julia Knight Edwards,
was in his audience that day, and that
after his departure, she had given an
interesting talk on the situations which
faced a woman student in '70 and '71.
Mrs. Edwards has sent four daugh-
ters and a son to Ann Arbor, two of
the girls marrying Michigan graduates.
Her oldest granddaughter will enter
the University soon. -

have been made to Americans in be-
half of sufferers in the European war,
few have met with. readier response
than has been accorded the effort of
the Committee of American Students
of the Ecole des Beaux Arts to sell in
this country small paintings by the
soldier-pupils of this famous institu-
tion. Ann Arbor people are now to be
given an opportunity to view these
paintings and to purchase them at a

who have been so crippled that al-
though discharged from the hospitals,
they are unable to resume their form-
er occupations.

C THIS WEEK

UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS ALSO
IN GRIP OF SMALLPOX SCARE
Michigan is not the only state whose
inhabitants have been subjected to the
terror incident to a smallpox epidemic.
The University of Kansas' newspaper
reports that the ,entire state is in the
grip of a smallpox epidemic and that
preventive measures are highly ad-
visable in the case of all students who
intend' travelling to any part of the
state during the Christmas holidays.
The University authorities at -Kan-
sas have announced that it is very
probable that all who are not vaccin-
ated will not be permitted to reenter
school on their return after the re-
cess. This is necessary owing to the
impossibility of taking any definite
preventive steps is the short time yet
remaining before vacation.
