Your King and Country need you right nowt THE PROGRESS OF THE WAP President AVilson hits appealed to the belligerent powers to get together in a peace conference, and he frankly states that it is purely in the interests of the United States that he has done EO. "With the continued violation, of neutral rights by certain of the belli- gerents. Wilson forsees the States presently drawn into the vortex oi' war. and he hastens to' appeal to the lighting powers for a peace confer- ence. He asks all the belligerents to state their terms of peace in such a way that the basis, of a peace confer- ence will be established. His action Bas caused great surprise nmnng the "warring powers. Along the war fronts very little change in the general situation is re-: ported. It Is stated that the Greek] government is living up to all its pro- mises and thus the movement of allied troops toward the Balkan war fronts been greatly facilitated.
