COMMITTEE OF INVESTIGATION SUBMITS PLANS • KOR TRIBUNALS.  By the Associate Press  PARIS. Jan. It) Atter nearly a month of waiting and preparation, conversations which will lay the foundation of the actual peace congress are about to start. American delegates feel that a good deal of progress might have been made before now if a full representation of the allie dilations had arrived, as many of the principal questions to be discussed concern most intimately the United States. Great Britain, and France. There is some hope of making headway while awaiting announcement of the full Italian delegation and arrival of Japanese representatives. The Belgians will arrive next week but they hold the status of minor belligerents. It is settled that when Pdesident Wilson reaches America next mouth he will address congress and give a report on what has bee naccomplished. There is little hope however, that the president’s report can be anything more than an outline .  GLASS PLANT IS IN  SATISFACTORY STATE  By the Associated Press  LONDON. Jan.

Phone for appointment.  ft  Stairs Studio  PHONE 34  LONDON, Dec, 25*: (Correspondence of The Associated Press).—The Bishop of Durham has found an historical precedent for the surrender I of the German fleet in the pages of Livy. That ancient chronicler tells how*, as an article of the peace agreement which ended the second Punic war, Carthage had to surrender to Rome the whole of her battle fleet.  Rome, the article points out, was the great military power and Carthage was the great naval power of antiquity, just as Germany and England iii modern times. Rome b^at Carthage the soldier beat the sailor. In the conflict Rome revealed an extraordinary adaptability for naval warfare, and Carthage grave internal weakness.  “The German writers,” the Manchester Guardian comments, “anticipated a similar course for a war between Germany and England. They were confident that the German military' mind applied to naval warfare would prove its superiority to the English, and that England, put to the test, would be proved rotten a great illusion.”  Explaining why the parallel of antiquity was deceptive, the Guardian proceeds:  “It should not too hastily be assumed that the British Navy display'-ed an intellectual superiority derived from long tradition which no young navy could hope to overcome. We are on safe ground if we say that the German navy', unlike the navy of ancient Rome, showed itself singularly wooden and unadaptable. Sir ! David Beatty has pronounced its strategy' and its tactics contemptible.  “If the comparison of Germany with Rome was false, still falser was the comparison of England with Carthage. Carthage was a narrow oligarchy resting upon a peculiarily harsh slave system, and defended by a mercenary army recruited from all the Mediterranean peoples. Carthage’s lack o ffreedom was her weakness, and England’s freedom her strength. But gentlemen of the school of Treitschke could not be expected to see that, for the despised political freedom.”  By the Associated Press  WASHINGTON, Jan. IO.—Departure I rom France of the transports Huron, Ilelgic and Atena, with about  6.000 troops aboard, including many sick and wounded was announced today by the war department. The Huron i 3  due at Newport News January 15, with IOO officers and 3,000 men. The Belgic is due at New York January 13 with thirty-six officers and 2,436 men and the Atena is due at New York January 19 with a detachment of headquarters troops, second division (negro), and 95 casual officers.

IO.—Women may not serve on juries in Oklahoma it was held by Attorney General S. P. Freeling yesterday in an opinion sent to D. M. Cavaness, county attorney of Grady county'.  The attention of Freeling had been called to newspaper stories to the effect that women were to be called for jury service in Chickasha and this prompted the sending of the opinion.  Freeling pointed out that sections I Sand 19 of article 2 of the Oklahoma constitution provide that both grand and petit juries should be composed of “tw'elve men.” The law providing the qualifications for jurors uses the term, “male citizens.”  LATE APPOINTMENTS BLOCKED BY RENATE  OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan.
