Notice on Administration
Washington, Nov. 19. Reconstruction problems were
considered today at a conference of republican senators and
a resolution was adopted which leaders said would serve no
tice upon the administration of the attitude of the next con
gress, controlled by republicans. The resolution, approved
unanimously by those present, follows:
"Resolved, That the congress should assert and exercise
its normal and constitutional functions, including legislation
necessary for reconstruction.' '
The congress also adopted a plan for congressional in
vestigation and disposition if reconstruction problems. The
resolution of Senator Weeks of Massachusetts, proposing a
joint congressional reconstruction commission, was amended
as suggested by Senator Cummins of Iowa, to provide for six
committees to deal generally with the subjects of demobiliza

ness, relations of employers and employes and national re-
Burleson Outlines Reasons
, for Taking Over Cables
Washington, Nov. 19. Post
master General Burelson issued a
statement today outlining what he
characterized as "the determining
factors" which led to the taking
over of cable systems November 2.
under the joint resolution of con
gress authorizing government con
trol and operatic 1 of t telephone,
telegraph, cable and radio systems
in this country.
"There never was a time in the
history of this war,"l said the state
ment, "which called for such a close
control of the cable system as to
day and will continue during the
period of readjustm .nt. The abso
lute necessity of uninterrupted, con
tinuous communication should be
apparent to all. The postmaster
general is now operating all the
telegraph and telephone lines in one
system. The recent breakdown in
connection with one of the cable
systems has demonstrated the ab
solute necessity of being able to
utilize at will the facilities of either
cable system with all of the land
line systems, in order that traffic
may be adjusted in the same hands
as upon the land lines."

Germany to Make

Paris, Nov. 19. In order to end
the discussion whether William
Hohenzollern has really abdicat-ed
as Geman emperor it is under
stood the German government in
tends to publish his decree of ab
dication. This consists of an at
tempt to justify the war on the
ground of Germany's isolation.
The abdication decree, accord
ing to the correspondent at Zurich
of L'lnformation, concludes with
"To avoid difficulties and to put
an end to the mourning and suffer
ing of my people, I renounce the

jects free to choose a government
which seems to them most compat

while great quantities of general
stores not mentioned in the terms
of the armistice had been abandoned
to the allies.
Undamaged stores on every road
which the Americans advanced bear
evidence of the great retreat.
At Virton was found a great sal
vage dump where tons of clothing,
gas masks and helmets had been
thrown by the German troops.
A road near St. Leger over which
the correspondent drove just behind
the evacuating armies was so thickly
covered with big iron German hel
mets that at times they interfered
with the operation of his automo
bile. However, it was not the litter of
a battlefield that one saw, or even
that of a disorderly retreat under
fire. It was merely the evidence of
the passing of a tired, disheartened
foe, who was going home.
The country generally presented a
strong contrast to that fought over
for so many years. The Americans
camped today in towns, most of
which bear no trace of warfare.

Unless one speaks clearly and listens attentively when using
the telephone, the conversation will be unsatisfactory and the
Tour part in the establishment of a telephone connection is to
answer the telephone promptly when you are called, and when you
make a call to give the number to the operator in a slow, distinct
tone so she will not misunderstand, and always acknowledge her
repetition of the number. The telephone operator cannot do these
things for you.
