SOLFnCFOR Berlin, Nov. 16.-(By Wireless to Lpndop.)-In his appeal to Secretary of State Lansing, Dr. W. S. Solf^ after appealing to him to Intercede" with President Wilson to send delegates to The Hague as' soon as possible, "in order to save the German people from perishing by starvation and anarchy," suggested that Herbert C. Hoover, the American - food administrator! be assigned to. the task of assisting the German people. This section of Dr. Solf's message reads: "American delegates could discuss wlthtfte plenipotentiaries' of the Ger-Aian people the details of how the magnanimous help of America could BBva la time pur fatherland, from the worst. Perhaps this matter could be put in thetried hands of Mr. Hoover, who has rendered such great sei-VJOes in Belgium." ( , "The acceptance of the oppressive armistice conditlonsj^the necessity of supplying from scanty provisions the armies that are streaming back from the front, the cessation of navigation in the North Sea and the Baltic by the continuance of the blockadia'.^hich endangers our, provision supply, and the disturbed conditions |n the east make the situation In our country more unbearable. The peril can be avoidedfonly by the most speedy help." Wants CpmnilHlon. Berlin, Nov. 16.-(By Wireless to London.)-^(l.OB p.m.)-Foreign Secretary Solf has sent a message to Secretary Lansing urgently requesting President Wilson to give permission for a German .commission immediately to leave for the United States so as to lay before the American government the'conditions existing here and to ensure {he t|iking of steps to purchase foodstuffs.. Don't Want Them Now Washington, Nov. 16.-While President Wilson himself had the matter brought to his attention today, officials regard it as 0nti2:ely'unlikely that a commission of Germans lyillljo permitted''to come\ to the United States at this time.under any circumstances. The latest note of Foreign Minister Solf addrassad to Secretary Lansing asking Prosfdent Wilson's permission for a German commission to visit the United > States^ to explain the^ food situation had not been received at the state department^ but-'the Associated Press announcement of its coming was read with interest. It was pointed out that the United States and Germany are still at war, although the armistice has IJeen signed and consequently It is rejfarded as inconceivable that any German delegation could come to America.

The voting in the British electoral campaign un-some countries had chosen their peace conference beyond that time. � A seml-offlcial note declaring that some countries had chosen therl peace plenipotentiaries has led to much comment on the personnel of the delegates, but no announcements :have been made, although it is generally accepted in Paris that President, Wil- son and Scretary Lansing will Join Col. House with a large staff of secretaries and shipping, food and other experts. Admiral Benson will remain here,as naval adviser to Ool. House. Owing to the distance it is believed that Japanese Ambassador'x Matsul probably will represent Japan. He-formerly was secretary of the Japanese ambassy at Washington. M. R.

Ottawa, Nov. 15.-With the advent of peace it will relieve the suspense of many people in Canada to know that the casualty lists, often weeks behind, are tapering off to the end;; There are numerous tragic cases, where, .since the celebration of peace; news has come of men previously killed in action.
