LONDON, Dec. 29.
The Entente's reply to the German peace note has been completed. It Is

that it may not be sent to Washington before the middle of next week. It had
been confidently predicted in diplomatic circles that it would go forward today or
The document will be transmitted to Germany through the American

BERLIN, via wireless to United Press, Dec. 129.
Judging from unofficial reports from tho front nnd diplomatic comment, tho
peace efforts that President Wilson, the Central Powers and Switzerland nro now
making will not Buccccd immediately in bringing tho wnr to nn end.
That the wnr will not end without tho Allies making nnothcr gigantic,
concentrated effort to break tho German front is indicated by tho nrtlllcry

England in tho west, her allies in Grecco nnd Russin in Rumania apparently
