PREMIER S SPEECH
IMPRESSION IN U. S.
Washington Government Believes Specific Statement of
Allies' Plans Will Offset German Peace Efforts in
Russia Without Committing England or En
tente Powers in Final Peace Conference.
(Br Associated Trrm.) t
Washington. Jan. 6. Premier Lloyd George's address
the British trades unions yesterday on Great Britain's war aims
created & Drofound imoressioa
Comment on it, however, was
it thorough study.
That the address was not unexpected was plain. The
growls? anxiety exhibited by the entente chancellories since
the beginning of the Brest-Litovsk peace conferences and the
oDenlv exoressed belief that some steps must be taken to coun
teract the insidious attempts of
represent the aims of their enemies had convinced Washington
officials that there soon must
source a clear, outspoken declaration of the real position of the
t . . .
powers ngniinjr vjcrmauiy.
itfire W(VT nftTTKTl ?
"Although it has nil the force of an
official declaration, it was pointed out
here that Mr. Lloyd George's speech
after all could not be seized upon by
the central powers as definitely bind
, ing the entente allies or ma Great
Britain to a literal acceptance of his
war aims as the basis of peace. .
They might, however, be properly
regarded as a tentative outline of
British and probably allied aims
which would be broached at any peace
conference at wAlch the powers may
take part as groundwork upon which
peace negotiations might be founded.
One inference drawn from the pre
mier's address was that he still hopes
that the German negotiators at
Brest-Litovsk can be balked in their
efforts to force s humiliating peace
upon Russia. In that connection it
was recalled that bints bad been
given in semi-official organs of a will
ingness of the entente powers to rec
ognize the Bolsheviki government if
it acted fairly toward the nations
fighting Germany. " '
It also was regarded as possible
the address might suffice to meet the
demand of Leon Trotzky for a state
ment of the entente war aims within
a 10-day period just about to elapse,
without actually committing the
powers too definitely. ,
President Urged to Speak.
' Some exchanges that have .taken
place between the United States and
its co-belligerents recently had pointed
to a desire on the part of some of the
governments that President Wilson
again should speak in defense of the
'position he had- alre&dy taken in re
gard to war. aimj.,r The State depart
ment felt., however,' that as the presi
dent twice had outlined in the most
formal and public manner his beliefs
America's position had been suf
ficiently disclosed, for the present at
' While it was intimated that the
Washington government had not been
advised in advance of what the British
premier was to say. that the aims he
outlined will not lead to any differ
ences between the powers seems as
sured, not only by the preceding ex
changes between the entente powers
and Washington, but also the harmoni
ous proceedings of the inter-allied war
council in Paris, at which all the sub
jects treated by Premier Lloyd George
today were considered.
Some officials pointed out that the
British premier had taken the repeated
declarations of the Italian, French and
British premiers, and not only had
clarified them, but' had stated them
more frankly and directly than they
had been presented before. It was
noted that etven President Wilson s
ideas were developed more sharply
than he himself had expressed them.
Serves Double Purpose.
It is believed here that Mr. Lloyd
George had a double purpose in mind
in makine his address. Only last week
the British trade unions registered
their strong insistence upon a dec
laration of entente aims and the pre
mier's address today was taken as an
answer to that demand. V .
A second object which the premier
is believed to have in mind was to
impress upon the Russ'an peace dele
gates the fact that the war aims of the
entente allies are more nearly in con
sonance with their own altruistic
aspirations than anything which the
central powers can offer them.
a i.ihm nf the Hrfrs which oar-
ticularlv interested officials here was
the reference to 'constitutional gov
ernment in Germany. While this was
regarded as nearly in line with similar
sentiments expressed by President

(By Aioclt4 Fmw.)
With the American Army in France, Jan. C United States aviators
have flown over the German battle lines and dropped bombs, in conjunc
tion with British and French pilots. , The flight of the Americans virtu
ally was a reprisal for the killing of two American woodcutters during a
German bombing expedition a week ago.
Through the courtesy of the British and French flying authorities,
the American aviators also have taken part in observation and photo
graphic work. It is not thought advisable to name the places where the
Americans flew on the bombing expedition, bus it was well beyond the
German air defence lines at the front.

Local Colleges Equip Labora
tories That Compare Favor
ably With Larger Institu

Now that the United States has been
thrown upon its own resources as far
as chemicals and chemists are con
cerned that he'd of work has become
a necessity to the maintenance of cer
tain industries and to the development
or natural resources.
The colleges of the country have
been silently working in this fine for
some years. Fully a dozen chemical
laboratories are to be found in this
city. While the majority of these are
brances of business houses, four of
them are found in colleges.
Bellevue college, Creighton college,
the Nebraska College of Medicine and
the University of Omaha have chemi
cal laboratories where 1,000 students
altogether could easily be accommo
dated. In addition to these the Cen
tral High school alone is able to ac
commodate about 200.
The. University of Omaha has one
of, the . most modern laboratories in
the state. It is not so large as that of
the University of Nebraska, but the
number of common re-agents and
special chemicals used can not be ex
celled by any school in the state.
The laboratory was constructed to
accomodate Z50 students. Any chem
istry from the general course to the
most delicate quantitative analysis
is included in the curriculum and spe
cial desks are provided for special stu
dents. The students learn to make various
colors, to analyze milk, flour, water
and all kinds of foods, common soils,
rock minerals, potash water, face pow
ders, various polishes, etc., to detect
arsenic and other poisons and how to
neutralize sucn poisons.
The course in organic chemistry Is
the most interesting just now as that

gases now used in the war. Students

New York, Jan. 6. Evidence of the

session of District Attorney Swann in
connection with an inquiry he con

tonight. In a letter to Attorney Gen

Mr. Swano said:
"These merchants sell to any per

of the uniform."
It also developed today that thou

uniforms are in the wrvtce."
"Recently many crimes have been
