(By the Associated Presa) Washington, D. C., Nov. was officially announced at the state department at p. m. that the. Germans had not signed armistice terms. Secretary Lansing authorized the statement that the Ger- man armistice delegation would not be received by General Foch until 5 p. m. The secretary's announcement came after Washington had been celebrating for two hours on the strength of an unofficial report that the armistice terms had been accepted. In spite of the f act-that officials did not accept the report as true, demonstrations persisted. President Wilson left the lunch table to see from the veranda what was going on out- side and waved his napkin to the crowd before the White House gates. Navy censors reported today that an unofficial message had come from abroad announcing that the Germans had signed the armistice. No authority was given for the state- ment, and while it added to a state of expectancy everywhere, officials said nothing but an official dispatch could be believed. Neither the American government nor any of the allied embassies or war missions had been advised even that Marshal Foch actually had presented the armistice terms. It was as- sumed, however, that the German envoys had been conducted thru the French lines some time during the day. The state department was advised that Gen. Foch would receive the German envoys at 5 o'clock p. m., (French time, noon Eastern U. S. Time.) The unofficial report-which started celebrations had said the armistice had been signed at 11 o'clock French time, or 6 hours before the time set for the meeting. Later it was learned that at 11 a. m. when the navy cen- sors reported an unofficial cablegram from Paris saying the armistice had been signed, an official message of inquiry was rushed to Paris and three hours later brought a reply on which Secretary Lansing based his announcement. (By the Associated Press) Paris, Nov. p. G erman officers bearing white flags, it is officially announced, probably will arrive at the headquarters of Marshal Foch tonight. A considerable crowd gathered around the war office today awaiting news of the result of the German application, j under a flag of truce, for an armistice, altho it is generally believed that several days will pass before a truce can be arranged. Amsterdam, Nov. Maximilian, says an official dispatch from Berlin, has issued an appeal to the German people, saying that'' in order to make an end of the a deputa- tion has left for the front and that'' negotiations will be seriously endangered by disturbances and lack of discipline." London, Nov. Foch, the allied commander-in- chief, has notified the German high command that if the German armistice delegation wishes to meet him it shall advance to the French lines along the Chimay, Founnies, La Capelle and Guise roads. (By the Associated Press) With the Italian Army at Wednesday, Nov. the re- joicings of this redeemed city scenes of destruction and starva- tion are common as one passes over the roads over which the Italian troops are trying to pass the thou- sands Austrian prisoners who were cut off by the Italians south- west of Belzano. Every road lead- ing up to this city is crowded with, men and on every hand there are evidences of the collapse of one of Europe's mightiest armies. The horrors of Napoleon's re- treat from Russia, it is said by mili- tary observers, were trifling corn- oared with the sufferings of the Austrian troops in this region.
