UNITED STATES READY
BRING ABOUT PEACE
WASHINGTON IS WAITING, HOWEVER, TO HI FULL DETAILS
OF WHAT GERMANY'S PROPOSES ARE
STATE DEPARTMENT ELATED
tfHPll IMPORTANT NEWS
' ^ " ' '
Washington. ? If Germany's* peace proposals are suifh that she
merely wishes the United States to act as a. courier in transmitting
them, this government -will pass them along without any comment of
her own. _ "1*
On the other Tianel, if Germany's projposaU are to tl>e.effect that the
United States, along with other neutral nations,^ ehttll niake proposals
in her own name at Germany's behalf, the administration will care
fully study the proposals before taking action.. This i* not taken to
mean, however, that the United States will not- transmit he proposals
under the second plan. .
These facts were officially revealed today by the. SSafc Department.
In the absence of exact information as to what Germany thinks,
Landing U withholding ooroment. Ilia manner, however, indicates
that the news is, probacy the kappiest word that has been heard from
Berlin in months^ Officials point out that* Genuairy'a action is un
precedented. t '
Various reasons' ard being assigned to Germany's peace overtures
at the present time, *hen her armies are .meetHJpt^fith such great
pnccess on the fields of battl^. One of the most vital of these points
ia the fact that the low^r classes in Germany are undergoing untold
suffering because of lacfc^of food. Thus, while <3erp?any has no rea
son to fear the outcome of &e war, she is desirou# of ending the
suffering withing her own borders.
