Berlin. Dec. 18. (Via London, Dec.
19.) Although the - German military
authorities are .making no effort to
belittle the recent French gains in
the neighborhood of Verdun and look
for more attacks in the near future,
they maintain that the results attained
are small and have no effect on the
general military situation. They do
not believe the anticipated future at'
tacks will necessitate any transfer of
troops from the east to the west, since
ample reserves are on hand.
The continued German advance in
Roumania, aside from straightening
the line and reducing the length of
the front by several hundred kilo
meters, has freed large number of
troops, the German are watching

the upbuilding of the navy and de
velopment of the National Guard,
while Major General Hugh L. Scott,
chief-of-staff, renewed his plea before
a senate subcommittee for abandon
ment of the National Guard and all
other volunteer systems in favor of
universal training and service.
General Scott made it plain that
the general staff had no quarrel with
the officers and men of the guard,
but only with the system, and argued
that its defects were inherent in any
plan that was based on the inclina
tion of individuals toward military
Before the naval committee, which
resumed consideration of the 1918 es
timates after a week's delay, Captain
William S. Sims, commanding the
new dreadnought Nevada, was the
first man from the active fleet to
present his views. He told of the
conditions of modern battle practice
at sea and the progress being made
by the fleet toward battle efficiency.
Brigadier General Weaver of the
coast artillery continued before the
house military committee his explan
ation of items for the coast defenses
in the 1918 bill. .
' Real Training Needed.
The National Guard force mobil
ized on the Mexican border would
have required nearly a year of in
tensive training to prepare it to meet
trained troops, Major General Hugh
L. Scott, chief of staff of the army,
declared today in continuing to urge
a universal service military system be
fore a senate subcommittee.
"Fortunately the Mexicans were
untrained troops," he added, "and our
purpose to protect the border was
accomplished by the mere presence of
our men on the border without firing
a shot We never contemplated send
ing the National Guard over the bor
der until it had been trained, although
I sat up until 2 or 3 o'clock every
morning at the War department ex
pecting a message saving that the
fight was on, that Pershing's force or
the border guard had been attacked.
"We felt that the National Guard
troops would have destroyed them
selves in marching had they been sent
through that hard country.
"General Pershing's troops made
phenomenal marches. There was not
a National Guard organization that
could have done it. It would have
killed both men and horses."
Why Guard Was Sent South.
General Scott said there were 20,
000 Carranza troops around the Per
shing expedition and 14,000 more op
posite Douglas, where great Ameri
can interests are located. These were
points where he looked for attack.
"We sent the National Guard down
because it was all we had and we
wanted the Mexicans to see that sol
diers were coming," he said. "We
sent some units almost unequipped."
"Do you think this mobilization
was beneficial for our country,"
asked Senator Brady.
'T do," answered General Scott. "It
was very beneficial. It prevented an
attack and gave protection to Ameri
can lives and property on the border
for the first time in five years."
General Scott disagreed with Gen

NATION FIGHTING FOR LIFE
London, Dec. 19. The first appear
ance of David Lloyd George before
the House of Commons as premier
was made today in circumstances sel-
Joniif ever, faced by Bfw'flolde!' oft
the office. Even if the peace propo
sals of the central powers had not in
tervened, his statement of the policy
of his government which was chosen
in reply to a public demand for more
vigorous prosecution ' of the , war
would have marked an important step
in the world conflict. The peace note,
however, shifted the interest and ev
ery corner of the world awaited the
announcement as to the British atti
tude toward the move of the central
powers. . . ; ,
When 'the house assembled every
seat on the floor and in the galleries
was filled. The diplomatic repre
sentatives of Great Britain's allies oc
cupied seats in the gallery for dis
tinguished strangers. On the benches
reserved for lords were many mem
bers of the upper house who took a
prominent part in bringing about re
cent change of government.
Among themwere Lords North
cliffe, Reading, Burnham, Islington
and Pirrioi. There was also a' scat
tering ofdominion ministers, includ
ing Premier Massey and former Pre
mier Ward of: New Zealand.
Premier Begins Speech. .
. It was ten minutes past 4 o'clock
when the premier rose before the
House of Commons. 1
"I appear before the house," he
began, "with the greatest responsibil
ity which has fallen on any man as
chief adviser of the crown in the
midst of the most gigantic war ever
waged, on which depends the destiny
of nations and humanity. The respon
sibilities of the government are
accentuated by the declaration of the
German chancellor and the note com
municated through the United States.
Our answer will be given in full ac
cord with our allies."
Allies Are Agreed.
The statement of the premier was
greeted with cheers. .
"The German note was a mere para
phrase of the chancellor's speech.
Each of the allies has separately and
independently considered the matter
and arrived at the same conclusion.
I am glad the first answer has been
given by France and Russia. They
had unquestionably the first right to
speak, for the enemy is still on their
soil and their sacrifices have been
great. I simply stand here to give
clear and definite support to the
statements they have made.
"Any one who wantonly prolongs
this conflict has a crime on his soul
which oceans of tears could not
cleanse," the premier declared, "but
any one who abandons the struggle
without attaining the object would be
even more guilty. Are we likely to
attain our object by accepting the
German proposals? To accept the
proposals would be to put our heads
into a noose. Historic example
causes us to regard the proposal with

London, Dec. 19. Premier Lloyd
George said in the House of Com
mons today that it was felt that they :
should know before entering on nego
tiations that Germany was prepared
to accede to the only terms whereon
it was possible for peace to be ob
tained and maintained in Europe,
The premier said that without rep-....
aration peace would be impossible.
Mr. Lloyd George said there were
no proposals for peace., To enter into
proposals of which they had no
knowledge was to put their heads
into a vnoose with the rope end in the
hands of Germany. . .: . i ,

Much as they longed for it, the
premier added, the central powers'
note and the speech preceding it af
forded smalt encouragement and hope.

Mr. Lloyd George said the allies
would insist upon a complete guar

turbing the peace of Europe.
The premier said: "We will wait
until we hear that terms and guaran
tees are surer than those which Ger
many broke. Meanwhile we put our
trust in our unbroken army." v
The formal reply of the allies, the
premier announced, will be given in
the course of a few days. :
Allies Are in Accord. ' ,
Mr. Lloyd George said: "Out an

The speech of Chancellor von Beth-mann-Hollweg
before the German

premier asked whether "all the out

Premier Lloyd George announced
it had been decided to give recogni
tion to the agents of former Premier
Venizelos of Greece. '
Speaking of the western front, Mr.
Lloyd George referred to the growth
of the British armies there and con
continued: , i
"I am convinced ultimate victory
is sure if the nation shows the same
spirit of endurance and readiness to
learn as the mud-stained armies at
the front."' , . .. , v
Plan of New War Cabinet.
, Turning to the more purely polit
ical of the domestic problems before
the new. ministry, Mr. Lloyd George
"We are anxious to avoid all con
troversial questions. The functions
of the premier and leader of the House
of Commons have been separated be
cause it was believed the double tasks
were too much for one man. The
organization of the new cabinet is
best adapted for the purposes of war
if you want prompt decision.- The
allies have suffered disaster after dis
aster from tardiness, of decision."
Premier Lloyd George said the dime
had come when the dominions should
be consulted more formally as to the
war. An imperial conference would
be summoned at an early date to dis
cuss vital questions.
The premier said it was proposed
to appoint a director of national servo
ice and that all industries and serv
