A REMARKABLE RECORD The Alberta Ladies' College of Red Deer, now carrying on Its work in Asslniboia Hall, University of Albor-ta, Edmonton, is one of the newer schools in the west for girls only, but during tho five years it lias been in operation, has achieved a notable success, so far as the record of its student? Is concerned. In Grades VIII, X, and XI, It boasts a 100% record of passes for students writing on departmental examinations in the public and high school work, and 87% in all grades. BLACK WHITE TAN MILADI Amsterdam, Aug. 24.-Viec-Chancel-lnr liolfferich during tho debate before tho main c-.ir.mittci' of the roichstag, said (ho real reason Groat Britain entered the war was that Germany's trade In 1017 presumably would liavo reached the level of the trade of Groat nritalii. "This war," tho vice-chancellor said "Is the result of tension created by the fact that Great Britain was constantly 1'eclliiK the glaring and Increasing disproportion between her superior world and naval power and Germany's in crossing economic strength. "One ought clearly to recognize that Groat Britain's object was our economic oppression. To abandon oneself to any illusion In this respoct would be fateful." Dr. Helfferieh repudiated as unjus tilled the reproach that he ever made any prophecies respecting the efficiency of tho German submarine warfare. "l'rophesying," he said, "I leave to Great Britain's premier. Lloyd George's statistics In his latest speech are mere humbug. If the British pre mler contrary to his declarations in April, now draws a favorable picture of tho situation-although it certainly has not become more favorable-this proves first that public feeling In Groat Britain urgently needs to bo comforted and second that Lloyd George considers it necessary to play upon German public opinion. "This impression is continued by the obvious consideration that Premier Lloyd George's words can only be explained by tlie srime direct menace which operates despite the prospect of American aid, in the tremendous dash on the western front, with an Immense concentration' of men and material. This menace is not so much on land or in tho air as it is In tho water. The opinion shared by Mr. Lloyd George, that fine weather is particularly favorable for U-boat activity is a mistaken one. Smooth seas and lulls in the wind are very disagreeable for German U-boats, especially in view of tho enemy's extensive measures, regarding aircraft in particular. "The navigation of ships under escort obstructs tho scope of U-boats of course, but it also involves considerable disadvantage for tho enemy, owing to the fact that such a flotilla is unhandy and has difficulty in eluding the submarine attack quickly. "As sea traffic diminishes, sinkings of course, will probably decrease gradually. Today the sinking of a ship means more to the British than it did at the beginning of the U-boat campaign. The statements of our naval staff respecting the tonnage resources of Great Britain may be regarded as evidence." Mr. and Mrs. George I).

POPE ON PEACE San Francisco, Aug. 23.-The San Francisco Examiner today says Viscounts Y. Kwai and M. Okuchl of Japan, passed through hero ,�=t night on their way to the Orient from Rome, where they attended, at tho suggestion of Pope Benedict and a high United States official, secret conferences between representatives of tiie allied entente nations previous to the publications of tho pope's recent peace plea. Viscount Okuchl was said to have issued this statement: "When tho United States declared war against our common enemy tbe first thing that suggested, itself in tho upper bouse of Japan was the probability of a more genuine' entente between the United States and ourselves. It waB while this inattor was under discussion that a message was received from Rome asking that ac-croditod delegates be sent to cpnfer with the other allies. . i England is Adverse. "Viscount Kwai and'myself were appointed to attend tho meeting. All the allies were represented: I am unable to give the names of those who attended, as it was understood that full secrecy was to surround the meot-ing. But, since the Pope has made public his proposal, which was outlined at our conclave, I presume it is a mere matter of diplomacy, that kept the European papers from publishing the news of our having met boforo the proposals . were formulated. "I have no objection to being quoted as saying that England appeared adverse to a peace settlement at tho present timo. "I am afraid that the peaco proposals will not achieve tho object hoy>d for by the pope. I seo no objection to saying Unit France had very much the same attitude as England as far as the conference was concerned. "As to what Japan would require in cans of peace, I can hardly say anything under present conditions. "After leaving Homo wo visited the front, in Franco. We were overwhelmed by the enormity of the action. Wo bring with its a firm conviction that tho Germans cannot hold out much longer." HUN REPLY TO ARGENTINE Zurich, Aug. 2;,.- (British admiralty per wireless press).-Germany has replied lo the Argentina note which demanded compensation for the torpedoed Argentina ship and a' pledge from Germany that, sho would abstain from torpedoing Argentina vessels in the future.
