THE i ENTERPRISE Terns Of Armistice Monday, November 11—The terms of the armistic» with Ger many were read to Congress by President Wihon at one o'clock this afternoon. Assembled in the hull of the House where nineteen months ago senator and representatives heard the President ask for the declaration of WH . 1 H**\' today heard him soeakili • vordn which herald the comin«r peace. The strictly military terms of the armistic ar«» unbraced in eleven specifications which in clude the evacuation of all invad ed territories, the withdrawal of the German troops from the left bank of the Rhine and the sur render of all supplies of war. The terms also provide for the abandonment by Germany of the treaties of Bucharest and Brest- Li tovsk. MUST SURRENDER SEA FORCKS The naval terms provide for the surrender of one hundred and sixty Bubmsrines. fifty de stroyers. six battle cruisers, ten battleships, eight light cruisers and other miscellanous ships All allied vessels in German hands are to be surrendered- and Germany is to notify neutrals that they are free to trade at once on the seas with the allied countries. Among the financial terms in cluded are restitution for damage dop ')y the German armies; re st!* _ »lon of the cash taken from the National Bank of Belgium and return of gold taken from Russia and Rumania. MUST GIVE UP ARTILLERY The military terms include the surrender of 5,000 guns, half field and half light artillery; 30, 000 machine guns. 3,000 flame throwers and 2,000 airplanes. The surrender of 5,000 locomo- tives, 50,000 wagons, 10,000 tor lorries, the railways of Alsace Lurrane for u|% by jfec allies and stores of coal and iron also are included. The immediate repatriation of all allied and American prisoners without reciprocal action by the allies also is included. In connection with the aban doning of the left bank of the Rhine it is provided that the al lies shall hold the crossings of the river at Coblenz, Cologne and Mayence, together with bridgeheads and a thirty kilo meter radius. The right, bank of the Rhine land, thatoccupitd by the allies, is to become a neutral zone and the bank held by the Germans is to become a neutral zone and the bank held by the Germrns is to be evacuated in nineteen days. The armistic is for thirty days, but the President spoke of the war as "coming to an end." MUST EVACUATE RUSSIA German troops are to retire at once from any territory held by Russia, Rumania and Turkey be fore the war. The allied forces are to have access to the evacjted territory either through Dantzig or by the river Vistula. The unconditional capitulation of all German forces in East Afica within one month is provided. German troops which have not left the invaded territories which specifically includes Alsace-Lor raine within fourteen days be come prisoners of war To REPATRIATE CIVILIANS The repatriation of the thous ands of civilians departed from France and Belgium, within fourteen days also is required. Freedom of access to the Bal tic, with power to occupy Ger man forts in the Kattegat is an other provision.

All ports on the Black Sea oc cupied by Germans are to be sur rendered and the Russian war vessels recently taken by the German naval forces also are to WiUiainstoii, Martin County, N. C. November, 15, 1018 be surrendered to the allies. These are the "high spots" of the terms as the President read them to Congress. Germany's acceptance of them, he said, sig nalized the end of the war, be cause it made her powerless to re new it. The President made it plain that the nations which have overthrown the military masters of Germany will now attempt to guide the German people safely to the famiiy of nations of de mocracv. Beside the surrender of one hundred and sixty submarines, it isyequired that all others shall haveVheir crews paid off, put out oT commission and placed under the supervision of the alli ed and American naval force*. War Savings Pledges Due Don't get angry when you re ceive three little poet cards, each of which is to remind you of your War Savings plegde," says today's bulletin from State War Savings Headquarters. "These cards are not sent as "open duns," but to inform the person to whom addressed, first, that his pledge card is an out standing obligation to the Gov ernment until it is redeemed and, second, how he may regain his card after having purchased his stamps. "Read all three of the cards carefully," advises the bulletin, "and you will know exactly what to do. If you have bought the number of Stamps for which you subscribed, take them to the agency or post office designated on the card sent you by your county chairman, and there get your pledge cards marked or stamped 'Redeemed in full ' Re member that your pledge card is an outstanding obligation to the Government until redeemed by you. "The sending of three cards (o each individual has been found necessary, firat, to get the pled ges redeemed; second, to keep the records straight, and third because people expect and wait to be reminded of the pledges they have made. Again, the im portance of the work demanded that more than unual efforts be made that more than usual re sults be obtained." Clayton Moore Chrnn. Why in The World Don't People Listen to Reason? - Influenza, in spite of the good, old-time remedies of sulphur in the shoes and asafoetida around the neck, like a hurricane passed from the seashore to the moun tains. from household to house hold, exacting its toll, paying no respect to persons. When the fi nal count of the present epidem icis made known, we will proba bly see that more than six thou sand North Carolinians have laid down their lives on account of it. The germs which cause influ enza, like the gerniß which cause whooping cough, scarlet fever, diptheria, tuberculosis, colds, pneumonia and many other di seases, live in the mouth aud nose secretions of people These germs die in the air just as soon as the secretions dry, and there fore they can not live long to float about, as some of the sul phur'and asafoetida fiends might think. One gets the disease hy coming in too close contact with careless people. —Prees article. Mr. C. R.

A Message From The Red Cross War Council "The mom nt is now come to prepare for peace Actual peace may come nt any moment; it may be deferred for sometime. Un f il peace is really here there can be no relaxation in any Red Cross effort incident to active hostilities. "But, even with peace, let no one suppose t l .ui the work of the Red Cross is finished. Millions of American bo.vs are still under arms. Thousands of them are sick or wounded. .Owing to the shortage in shipping, it may take a year or more to bring our boys home from France. But what ever the time, our protecting arms must be about them and their families over the whole pe riod which must elapse before the normal life of peace can be resumed. "Our soldiers and sailors are enlisted until the Commander in Chief tells them there is no more work for them to do in the war. Let every Red Cross member and worker our returning sold iers and sailors that to care for their health, welfare and happi ness, we are enlisted 'or no less a period than they are. "The cessation of war will re veal a picture of misery such as the world has never seen before, especially in the many countries which cannot help themselves. Peace terms and peace conditions will determine how we may best minister to the vast stricken areas which have been harrowed by, war, and in this great act of merc.v, the heart and spirit of the American people must con tinue to be moblized through the American Red Cross "On behalf of the War Coun cil, we accordingly ask each member of our splendid body of workers throughout the land to bear in mind the solemn obliga tion which rests upon each one t» 'carry on'. We" cannot abate onejinstant in our efforts or in our spirit. There will be an abun dance of work to do, and specific advices will be given, but even at the mement of peace let no | Red Cross worker falter. Signed, E. R. Black, Manager Red Cross Southern Division. Patriotic Parade On Wednesday afternoon the colored people of the town had a patriotic parade.

America must play an import jant part in disarming and guard ing the enemy until this work is completed, even the movement of troops to France will be con tinued, although on a greatly re duced scale. During the interval between the cessation of hostilities and the conclusion of the peace con ference, it is assured that the major portion of General Per shing's expeditionary forces in France must be retained there. It is posible also that for reasons of international politics some American garrisons may be kept in disputed territory even after the actual peace negotiations have been brought to a close. WILL RETURN VETERANS FIRST Troops which have soon the longest service in France prob ably will ho returned home soon to be replaced by new men now in ttiis country who will preform guard duty or other duty over seas, There are more than 1,000, (XH) men now in the camps in the United States The question of discontinuing the calling of men to the colors under the selective service act with the ending of hotilitiea has been under consideration. It is known that General Crowder's adviser's have favored cancelling all outstanding calls as soon as the armistice is signed, but this matter must be passed on by the general stalf. The movement of a large number of men to camp due to begin this morning under the November calls, which em brace about H00,(K)0 men.
