Nebraskan Says Change Not Enough
to Justify Him in Withdrawing
Hit Resignation from
TENSION GENERALLY RELAXED
Gerard Officially Announces Deliv
ery to German Government of
American Rejoinder. ,
FEELING OF OPTIMISM STRONG
WASHINGTON June IS. Of
ficial announcement of the delivery
of the American note to the German
government reiterating Insistence
that submarine warfare conform to
the laws of humanity and Interna
tional law was received today from
Ambassador Gerard at Berlin.
The message came at the close of a
day marked by a more optimistic
feeling in official quarters that the
German answer would forestall any
possibility of war between the na
tions and also avoid a breach of dip
lomatic relations. --'
Apparently there wa a general relax
ation of tension In the International
situation. President Wilson apent part
or the day at golf and let It bo known
that later in tho month be planned to
take a short vacation at hie summer
home in Cornish. N. II. No answer to
the Amrlun rejoinder la expected for
ten days at least, and there is convic
tion hera that the' Berlin authorities will
await the arrival there of Meyer Ger
hard, official representative of Airtbae
ador Bemstorff. before their answer ia
Former Secretary of State Bryan, who
resigned hie portfolio rather than sign
the second note to Germany, issued an
other atatement late today, declaring!
that the note was materially revised fol
lowing the presentation of his reels-nation.
The revision, Mr. Bryan averred,
softened the note, but wa not sufficient
to Justify him In withdrawing nle resignation.
"It ! true." said Mr. Bryan, inn i
saw the final draft of the note Just
before my resignation took effect, but
it Contained an Important chae. I
had no knowledge of this change at the
tima my resignation wag tendered and
1 , Not Maefc softened.
This change, while very much soften
ing the note, was not, however, sufficient
in my Judgment, to Justify ma in asking
permission to withdraw my resignation.
As Germany had suggested arbitration.
1 felt that we could not do leas than
reply to thin offer by expressing u. wW
Ingness to apply the principle of the
peace treaties to the case."
"What was the chango in the note!'
Mr Bryan was aaked.
"I cannot discuss thit," he replied.
It wae euggested that the clause added
to the note wae that anylng the United
States would entertain auy evidence Ger
many might have that offlclala of this
government had not thoroughly performed
their duty in examining the Lunltanla
before its departure to eee that It waa
not armed for offensive action. Mr.
Bryan only smiled et the suggestion.
Secretary Lansing also declined to dla
cusa change made In the note-
The cl-iuso joforred to follows:
If the imperial German government
should' deem Itself to be In poaseaalon of
convincing evidence that the officials of
the government of the United States did
not perform those duties with thorough
neae tho government of the United
Btates hopes that It will submit that
evidence for consideration."
"IrreipcctWe of whether that clause was
inserted or not," Mr. Bryan wae asked,
'does it not open the way for further
negotiations with Germany?"
-I can only rtlterate what I have said,
that the note was softened," Mr. Bryan
replied, "tut not sufficiently to Justify

those who came late could not have told

Rev. F. T. Rouse Talks to Graduat
ing Class of the High School
at His Church.
SPEAKS OF ABUNDANT LIFE
Baccalaureate services for the gradu

drew to the First Congregational church
and audience of seniors and their friends
whtch tested its seating capacity yester
day morning. A serman by Rev, Fred
erick T. RMSue, which abounded In prac
tical suggestions, a charming musical
program and the solemnity of the church
rites' combined to make the occasion
memorable and valuable to the graduates.
Rev. Mr. Rouse's subject, "The Abound
ing life." was devoted to a plea to his
young hearers to avoid "time serving" In
the work which they may do, to gain a
broad view of their relationship to the
world and to devote themselves to genuine
service, In which they would find satis
faction and happiness. Ha said In part:
The Abuadaat Life.
"What better theme could I take for
you who are thus on the threshold of a
potential life of greatest Interest, than
that of life, "The Abundant Life."
"I have an exceeding desire, not only
that you should live, but that you should
live abundantly; go I will venture to give
three suggestions, on, on how, to live,
but how to live fully, freely, abundantly.
"The three laws of the abundant . life
aret To think; to feel; to. serve, One la

He who knows the sclenoes, history, art,
literature, lives a thousand lives.

"The third law of life Is the law of
service. Tou think you are working for
your salary; but. If you are alive, you
are working for the service. He only
really lives who gives. This Is the third
degree. This is that which makes you

he got for his 'Paradise Lost.' Ask
Tennyson how much his 'In Memorlam'

how much the Milan cathedral cost. The
little wernan who kept our modest pen

Heavy Fighting- Also Continues in
Baltic Provinces and on East
FRENCH KEEPING UP ATTACKS
LONDON, June IS. Another big
battle Is being fought along the line
of the Dnelster river In Oalicia, In
which the forces of Russia are pitted
against those of Austria and Ger
many. Those German troops which had
crossed 1 the Dnelster at Zurawna
having been driven toacfc, and the
Russians In eastern Oalicia and
Bukowina also having been forced to
withdraw to the river, the two armies
now face one another across the wide
and crooked stream, each making
thrusts in an effort to gain the initia
tive for an offensive.
The Austrian in their official report
claim to have succeeded In crossing the
river to the east of Horodenka, a move
ment which. In view of their recent ex
perience near Curewna, might prove
Lerabers; Still Objective.
The Austro-Oermans. however, still
have Lrmberg as - their objective and
they are not likely to allow any reverses
they have suffered near Zurawna and
east of Prsemysl to put them off. fto
that fighting as severe aa any witnessed
in recent weeks mare be expected dur
ing the next few days.
Heavy fighting also continues in the
Baltic provinces and on the Eaat Prus
sian frontier, In which both sides claim
advantages. With tbe view doubtless of
preventing the Russians from sending re
inforcements to either of their wings the
