refusal While reports from Germany on the prospects of Germanys signing the treaty are lacking in clarity it is known that the council is acting on the belief that there is no general feel ing on the part of the masses against German acceptance of the terms An air of optimism pervades the council in this The indisposition of the council of four to submit the revised German treaty to a plenary session of the con ference before sending it to the Ger mans 1 causing another protest from the small powers which resent steam roller methods This may force the calling of another plenary session

of the German treaty and similar articles are contemplated for insertion la the Austrian and Hungarian treaty on behalf of Eastern Europe states The Poirti provis slipped without objection when the

concerns William Thatcher of Harrison township He was engaged In rolling corn ground and the storm caught him before he had time to un hitch tied his team to a nlre being Included This objection in has that been one of the principal causes for the postponement of the presentation of the entire treaty to the the clauses in ques tion being eliminated from the first installment of the pact Small
