Civilian membera of the .council are
tremendously impressed by the British
contention- in favor of the- abolition of
conscription. This is recommended on
twe Immensely important grounds :
1. It would prevent the Teutons from
building up a secret army -by annual
training ef 200.000 men (the number
suggested originally as theslxe of new
Germany's array).
. It would provide the , strongest ar
gument fer abolition of conscription by
all of. the powers. , . -
It is .understood that Premier Lloyd
George's plan was sprung only after
consultation with the members of the
American delegation. He went before
the council knowing full well that Presi
dent Wilson was prepared to back any
limitation imposed on Germany, espe
cially if it has the double merit of
abolishing big armaments.

If the week end tip that preliminary

The president will have a mountain
of reports to digest and innumerable de
cisions to review, besides attending to
the covenant of the League of Nations,
which must be ready at the -same time
as the preliminary peace terms. -.
The European situation is still such
that the conference may suddenly switch
to some dangerous new development. .'
Nevertheless, it can be said that the
conference is making- good progress,
despite the slowness ever territorial de

Anglo-American Shipping of Food
' to .Germany 1 Called 'Antidote
for Bolshevik Craze. '
- London, March 10v "Leaving aside all
humanitarian , questions, and viewed
strictly as- a means of protection from
the spread of Bolshevism overwhelming
the civilization of Western Europe, there
is no doubt of the Immediate necessity
for Ang-lo-American feeding of the ene
my countries as well as those who have
suffered rom the outrages of the cen
tral powers. If Britain has been slower
than the United States to recognise this
fact, that is all the more reason why
she wholeheartedly should shoulder her
share of the burden, whatever temporary
sacrifices it may entail to Britain.
With these words. G. H. Roberts, Brit
ish food controller, emphasised in an in
terview Sunday his stand for . feeding
Germany,' which has raised a storm of
protest among-the '"bitter-enders" and
others who view all efforts to feed the
enemies as treasonable weakness, large
ly inspired by the United States. ?
Minister Roberts departed for Paris
where he will assume his newly, created
seat in the supreme economic council,
carrying with him the British govern
ment's determination to cooperate with
Herbert C Hoover fn a real effort 'to
avert starvation not only In Roumania,
Serbia and Asia Minor, but in Germany
Uand Austria as well. .
0 "Mr. Hoover was right when he urged
i In January that the only way to fight
Bolshevism is with, food," said Commis
sioner Roberts. ,
"I think France appreciates the
danger more ' keenly : than Britain,"
Minister Roberts said, "because a Bol
shevist Germany would be more dan
gerous than the old militant Germany,
Just as mad dogs are more dangerous
than fighting dogs.
But. France herself Is unable to as

her own in the devastated districts. t

A strong minority, accusing the strike
leaders of treachery in playing into the
hands of the government., was demand
ing complete overthrow of the cabinet
and turning the country over to control
of the Soviets. This sentiment was being
fostered, by fearVpf hunger as, well as
money and propaganda alleged to be
furnished by Russia.
..Labor leaders are now trying to sep
arate the workmen's political demands
from Spartacan terrorism and violence
with which the radical : element of the
workmen is closely connected.
Jt was . sympathy with , the workers
rather than a formal alliance (which led
the sailOMuand soldiers of the republican
guard to break - with the government.
These men never had been dependable
supporters of the cabinet, but were as
signed to patrol the region around
the Alexanderplats last Sunday. Mean
while the government brought in volun

This provoked - jealousy . and lit' feel

to revolt and begin a warfare which
wrecked an Important business district
and caused, the heaviest casualties which
Berlin has experienced so Tar. It is un
officially estimated that '600 persons
have been killed and 1000 wounded, in

The 6 part scans .among the workmen,
however, refused to recognise the au
thority of the more conservative lead
ers whose conference with the cabinet
at Weimar led to the compromise. The
government gave in to , the extent of
granting the Soviets . constitutional
recognition as directors of labor and
production and premising partial social

this is accomplished, or they are com

s Bitterness Is Increasing
With' the radicals preaching a new
revolution the people are pessimistically
anticipating a .calamity. There is com
mon talk that food will give out com
pletely in May, and that everyone win
starve unless peace ", comes and ' the
blockade is lifted.
Discouragement and bitterness are in
creasing. The general lack of confidence
is provoking a startling irresponsibility
and disregard for' human life. The pub

overhead, mlnenwerf erg and cannot bat

and rifle bullets sweeping the streets,
men and women a block away from the
scene of the battle appeared to be un
aware of anything out of the ordinary.
The fighting tonight was limited to a
series of guerrilla werf are, with the rad
icals resisting ' in Isolated streets and
buildings. But rebellion seemed to be in
the -very, atmosphere, and if was feared
the continued fighting might again set
the whole city seething with revolution.
Berlin seems ripe for Bolshevism, un
