PEACE AND GER
Cleveland, Jan. 17. The belligerent
European nations will declare a truce
within three months, if a prediction
made by Dr. Jay W. Hudson, charter
member of the league to enforce
peace, and instructor in philosophy at
the University of Missouri, is fulfilled.
"I believe Germany entered the war
for conquest, but I believe she will ac
cept almost any terms the Allies will
now make," said Dr. Hudson. "The
Allies will insist upon and Germany
will consent to the restoration of Bel
gium and the payment by Germany
of a large indemnity.
'"Alsace-Lorraine will be divided ac
oiding to neutral boundaries, the
German-speaking portion going to the
fatherland and the French-speaking to
ranee. Poland will not be restored
to Russia nor will England insist on
Russia's getting Constantinople.
"This opinion is based on my belief
in England's fear of Russia as a fu
ll re commercial rival. England will
prefer Constantinople to remain Turk-
Dr. Hudson declared President Wil
son s peace overture should nave been
ent long ago.
"It will carry great influence, which
s all this country can hope for in the
peace negotiations, he said. " llson
will never be called as mediator. But
oth Germany and the Allies are glad
the note has been delivered. Thev are
oth ready for peace. England's in-
ignation is largely feigned."
Experience is the Be-st School.
Only fools do not learn by ex
perience of other people. A wise
man forms his judgment upon a rem
edy from results communicated in
newspapers and calls it to his memory
if the need conies. Read what Mr.

American Elixir of Bitter Wine: "I
have suffered badly from stomach
troubles for S years. I took various

Stockholm, Jan. 17. The food
situation in Germany has grown much
worse during the last six months, ac
cording to the report of the Associ

turned from a trip to Berlin. Pota
toes are so scarce that this week's per
capita ration in Berlin was less than
four and four and a half pounds. This

withholding shipments until February

No cheese has been on the market
since August and eggs are unobtain
