Marshal's Recommendations as
Peace Conditions to Be Consid

By the Associated Press t
PARIS, March 1. Marshal Foch pre
tsented today to the council of the great
powers the military terms to be incor
porated In the peace treaty. These will
be considered Monday with the naval
terms already submitted to the council
The military terms provide tor the
disarmament of Germany down to 'JO
divisions of 10,000 "men each, including
15 divisions of infantry and five of
cavalry. Severe restrictions are placed
on the manufacture of all classes of
. war materials, and the military and
commercial use of the airplane is lim
lted to the minimum.

of the terms today they were not dis

French Make Reservations.
The proposal for the destruction of
the large German warships is approved
in the report by the British and Amer
ican naval authorities, but the French
still make reservations against the de
struction of these ships.
The supreme council Is expected to
pass' on this and other naval and mili
tary subjects on Monday.
The council of the great powers to
day began consideration of financial
and economic problems, both as affect
ing the treaty of peace and permanent
conditions after the war. This subject
is taken up after weeks given to hear
ings on territorial questions.
The subject was presented today in
two specific reports. One was from
the financial commission of which
Louis Klotz, French minister of finance,
is chairman and Albert Strauss and
Xorraan Davis are the American mem
bers. The other report was from the
economic commission, of which Albert
Clementel of France is chairman and
Bernard B. Baruch, Vance McCormick
and Dr. A. A. Davis the American mem
bers. War Debts Are Problem.

presented without recommendations.
which are left to the council and the
One of the main headings concerns
war debts and debts made before the
war in enemy countries, and whether
they are to be paid or repudiated, and,
if paid, the manner and priority of pay
ments. Another heading deals with
state property in territory taken over,
such as state miners and state rail
ways. The most important heading is en
titled "Reapportionment of the war
debts of allied countries on a fair ba

this heading opens one of the largest
questions presented to the conference
According to the French point of view
uie nuge aeoia piica up iy the war
have fallen unduly on France, which is
now carrying the largest per capita,
It is maintained therefore that a cer
tain portion of these allied war debts
should be pooled so as to be interna
tional obligations instead of being
carried alone by France. This is on
the theory that the war was not fough
only as a defensive measure by France
but as an international conflict in
which France bore the brunt becaus
of her geographical position.
Debt's Redistribution Opposed
Thus far the proposal to redistribute
the war burden has not been consid
ered favorably by the British, Ameri
can or Japanese members. The Brit
ish do not wish to add to their burden
by taking part of the continental bur
dens, while Japan believes she should
hold aloof from European indebted
It was at first suggested that this
reapportionment of war debts be Incor
porated in the peace treaty, but be
cause of differences of opinion thi
suggestion was abandoned and the
present suggestion contemplates a re
apportionment of the debts under the

WASHINGTON. March 1. Republi
cans of the house found themselves in
the majority late tonight and after
a bitter debate, by a strict "party vote
of 182 to 173, unseated Representative
Zubulon Weaver, democrat of the Tenth

James Britt, republican.
There was much -parliamentary ma

they lost. Britt will hold his seat only
two days, but the victory gives him
his salary and allowances for the full

PARIS, March 1. So little is known
in Europe and America about the Arab

Arabic countries will be determined
short narrative of the Arab movement

The Arabs are the heirs of a glorious

nations of the west much of the science

Arabs CUns i Traditions.
About 800 years ago the marauding
tribes of Tartary overran western Asia.
Mesopotamia, Syria and parts of the
Yemen (Arabia Felix) were subjugated
and held under a succession of cruel
and tyrannous dynasties. In a few
decades the civilization of the centuries
was completely overturned. Neverthe
less the Arabic-speaking peoples, too
weak to resist their oppressors by force
of arms, clung during these centuries
to their nationality, guarded with great
jealousy the purity of their language
and maintained tbei aspirations for an
Independent Arabia, which, when op
portunity lately afforded, took form
in their recent movement.
Shortly after the Turkish revolution
committees were formed in all parts of
Syria and Irak for'the purpose of safe
guarding the rights and interests of the
Arabs under the new regime and of
combating the efforts of the Young
Turks to Turklfy the non-Turkish races
of the empire. '
Teutons Teach Terrorism to Turks.
After the close of the Balkan war the
Syrian Arabs were the first who re
quired the Turkish government to In
troduce at once certain long-promised
reforms, the decentralization of control
and the subsequent grant of complete
home rule. The wily Turk listened to
these demands with a show of benevo
lence, and profusely showered his prom
ises ol accomplishing at the proper
time all the necessary reforms. As time
passed and popular agitation was in
creasing, the government suddenly re
newed its wonted tyrannical attitude.

SIX VITAL POINTS INVOLVED

A sweeping victory for Christianity
is to follow closely In the wake of Per
shing's success. And at the very mo
ment the American soldiers the wear
ers of khaki are belru demobilized
and returned to peaceful pursuits, an
other army, equally as great in man
power and Just as sincere and deter
mined that right t-hall triumph over
might, is fart being mobilized. It Is the
army of Methodism, which soon shall
bivouac among the people of all lands
until the ultimate success has been at
tained. It is this army which shall
move forward In solid columns to
Christianise the world.
The people of Portland were fully
wakened to the sweeping Methodist
entenary programme at the final meet
ings of the world-programme confer-
nce yesterday morning, afternoon and
vening. Methodi.-t leaders from the
ast and middle west delivered their
messages to the people of Portland.
They summarized briefly just what
must be done; the part which each in-
ividual must play in this greatest of
11 undertakings of the Methodist Kpls-
opal church. And proof that this mes
sage shall not go unanswered waa
ound In the fact that hundreds of peo-
le cf this city came forward to enlist
heir services in the mighty movement.

'In a drive of this kind the first
essential is a high standard. said Mr.

our minimum. Not one person is to be
overlooked. The motto which I sug

M Vital Point Involved.
In the organization for the great
financial drive are included six vital
points which are necessary for any
line of financial success, whether in
the household. In business or In the
church. The first of these points is to
have a high standard. We have that.
The second is leadership. S?o far. tho
leaders in this work have been some of
the best in the world and each hart
tiand'.ed a different phase. The third
point of organisation divides the nation
into areas. The fourth point divides
the Portland area Into conferences, then
the districts, sub-districts, groups, until
we finally come to the church."
An urgent plea for tithers among the
Methodists of Portland was made at
the afternoon mass meeting yesterday
by Dr. William A. Brown, who Is lead
ing the campaign for Methodists who
will subscribe one-tenth of their an
nual incomes to the world-programme
March 16 has been set as the 'going
over the top Sunday witn an enlist
ment of 1,000.000 tithers," said Dr.
Frown. "A preparatory step Is to se
cure about ou per cent ct tne cnurcn.

the voluntary subscriptions all in be
fore the great launching cf the real
drive or soliciting on L-asttr Sunday.
May 4 has been designated as the 'over
the top Sunday with full quotas every
where. Millionaires t.lie Uiuli.
"In this" connection do not let seem
ingly large figures frighten anyone.
Approach all people with a spirit of
confidence. I wish to say that I find
millionaires just as nice and. easy to
get along with as any ordinary Mis
sourian 1 ever knew.
"From 3.841.155 members we re
ceived J49.H00.00O last year. Of this
amount $15,000,000 was used to pay
current expenses and $4,000,000 was
used for benevolent organization.,
while $35,000,000 will be used for
benevolent organizations next "year.
This shows an average gift from mem
bers of $11. If we gave $:i per mem
ber we would be $l".000.000 beond
what our actual needs now arc."
That the Methodists have every rea
son for devoting a great sum in re
construction work among soldiers was
the point raised at the night meeting by
Lr. W. K. Doughty, who asserted that
army statistics show one-fifth of tho
soldiers in the L'nitcd States army to bo
members of the Methodist church.
